CBS's Bob Schieffer Likens Gun Rights Advocates to the 'Nazis'

Bob Schieffer somehow topped Chris Matthews during CBS News’s special coverage of President Obama’s gun control press conference on Wednesday, as he became the worst caricature of a foaming-at-the-mouth cheerleader for the chief executive. Schieffer lauded “one of the best speeches I’ve ever heard him [Obama] deliver”, and compared Obama’s new gun control agenda to Lyndon Johnson’s push for civil rights legislation in the 1960s.

The CBS veteran even went so far to liken the President’s cause to the ten-year hunt for 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden and the difficult endeavor of winning World War II

BOB SCHIEFFER: …Let’s remember: there was considerable opposition when Lyndon Johnson went to the Congress and…presented some of the most comprehensive civil rights legislation in the history of this country. Most people told him he couldn’t get it done, but he figured out a way to do it. And that’s what Barack Obama is going to have to do…what happened in Newtown was probably the worst day in this country’s history since 9/11. We found Osama bin Laden. We tracked him down. We changed the way that we dealt with that problem. Surely, finding Osama bin Laden; surely, passing civil rights legislation, as Lyndon Johnson was able to do; and before that, surely, defeating the Nazis, was a much more formidable task than taking on the gun lobby.

    Al Queda is alive and well. Obama did nothing to stop the radical Islamists . . . more or less kissed up to the Saudis, I believe all of whom were the terrorists that caused 9/11. He now supports a Hezbollah terrorist in Egypt, with continued finances though Morsi fully support jihad against Israel, our nearest friend in the middle east.

    • A weakling president has emboldened the enemies of liberty around the world. Just ask the 7 American citizens sitting in Algeria.

      • CyclingFoodmanPA says:

        Sad to say I think they are lying down in Algeria now as last I read a bunch of the hostages were executed. The bad guys are now emboldened. Scary thought.

  2. fliteking says:

    Sure is easy for Bob Schieffer, a pretty bright guy, to say that, and proves he is more comfortable lying than stating the truth.

    The truth is the National Socialist Party (AKA Nazis) are just a branch away from the American Liberal (AKA Progressives / Socialists) on the World’s political tree whereas the Conservative Christians are the trunk of the tree.

    Let’s all recall it was the Democrats that spawned the KKK and Margaret Sanger and the White House steers at the Nation using Alinsky’s maps.

    • Susan says:

      so great you left out the democratic Party which is not the Progressive or Socialist party yiu allude to. Had me scared for a minute. Of course the KKK were democrats, who are now Republicans. That was the party of the south before Lyndon got civil rights. Then they all turned Rep. Maybe yiu need to read some history. Guess you were taught by all those union, lib teachers and just aren’t very smart.

      • rwhawk says:

        When did Senator Bob Byrd turn Republican???
        For all intents and purposes there is little distinction left between Democrats and the CPUSA, Socialist Party, Marxism, etc, they all bow at the alter of Statism

      • disgusted demacrat says:

        Got hard time with the spelling of the word you “yiu” dont cha??

      • Jere Smith says:

        You are full of bovine excrement.

      • fliteking says:

        Nice try on the flip flop of the facts, I have read the history and it is clearly as indicated above.

        Your low-down idiot shell game is not working here. Perhaps you should try the OWS office, it’ll work there for sure.

        Remember what your psychiatrist told you . . . “Just because Susan thinks it does not make it true . . . ”

    • Remington 870 says:

      Like to add to this history lesson, during WWII, many Muslims were in Hitler’s military and specificially the SS. You don’t have to be blond haired, blue eyed and have perfect teeth to be a Nazi. Obama can be easily categorized as Marxist, National Socialist, Communist, or Socialist. He is certainly not American, Christian, or someone to trust watching small children.

    • fliteking, Great post, but add that we have 100 card carrying, avowed communists sitting in Washington and every one of them is an Obama supporter. These people are weak minded, societal rejects that feel the need to grab for power any way they can even it it means selling their souls. Obviously, they are very low on the IQ scale, because the politics they prostrate themselves for has failed every single time. They just don’t get it that people do not want to be ruled,enslaved, murdered and raped by incompetent wannabes

  3. rikki says:

    the last time the people in this country had to fight a tyrantical goverment was when they had to fight england and won. As long as citizens have weapons obamas buddies in the middle east wont just come over here cause they don’t know who has what.

  4. eelcram says:

    Schieffer has it bass-ackwards, the gun control freaks of the 30′s and 40′s were the Nazis. I assume then by his definition he is a Nazi!

    • Jere Smith says:

      Good thinking but he is just stuck on stupid

    • 2War Abn Vet says:

      “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to permit the
      conquered Eastern peoples to have arms. History teaches that all conquerors who
      have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall
      by doing so.” —Adolf Hitler

  5. The only Nazi I see is occuppying the White House.

  6. kbcab says:

    Hey Bob , ” Zeig Heil “…

  7. Uhhh…it was NAZIS who confiscated guns and disarmed the citizens, leaving them unable to defend themselves from TYRANNY. Which is WHY we have the Second Amendment in the first place.

  8. rich day says:

    No I think it was the NAZIS that took the guns away from the gun owners. Mr Schieffer needs to know his history before he makes stupid remarks, or maybe he is old and suffering from a loss of memory.

  9. John Cherish says:

    The fact is Obama knew where Osama was all along he just waited to get him so that he could use it for his re-election fact is even George Bush knew at the end of his term he was in Pakistan. But this issue is about Guns. You say that defeating the Nazi’s was a formidable task well you know that could not have been done without guns and could have saved more jews had they not been UNARMED by Hitler. You are another left wing liberal liar

  10. gbandy says:

    It just seems CBS looks for the most vile and ignorant reporters they can find for their News. The Nazi’s took away the guns you idiots the German people wanted to keep their guns. So by CBS definitions Obama is the Nazi. These idiots need to place “Gun Free Home” signs on their front doors.

    • Dingbat36 says:

      Actually someone with a little courage might take a template and spray paint their front doors with that SIGN!!

  11. Ken Stephens says:

    Schieffer, you have shown your liberal prejudice on many recent occasions. You are no longer a news reporter, you are an advocate for the left. CBS, ABC, and NBC are no longer news organizations the are liberal propagandists. You and your comrades join the ranks of the Black Panthers, KKK, NAACP who all are irrational advocates for a stated political goal.

  12. Lucius_Junius_Brutus says:

    I despise the deceptive headlines the promoters of these pages feel they have to put out to get hits on these pages. Totally false and disingenuous. Scheiffer DID NOT “liken gun rights advocates to the Nazis.”

    Scheiffer is certainly wrong and misguided in heaping false praise on Obama, betraying the fact that he, like most in media are sycophants. Scheiffer’s worst offense among what is cited above was dismissively minimizing opposition to Obama’s assaults against the 2nd amendment as merely “the gun lobby.” In reality it is the American people opposed to it, standing up for their rights.

    But these outright lying headlines are sickening. They are just like the distortions the Left is so fond and keen to make in order to achieve their goals. And this is a mistake conservatives are making; adopting deceptive tactics of the Left to counter them.

    It only ruins credibility, and attracts those whose primary concern is really about Liberty and freedom, but who really want to just fan the flames.


  13. Dingbat36 says:

    What kind of a freaking imbecile is Schieffer anyway. If the German people had said hell no to Hitler when he disarmed the Jews. They might not have been bombed into oblivion!

    And as to that dumb comment about us tracking down bin Laden……………baloney! That particular waste of human flesh has been dead for years, murdered by one of his own kind.

  14. camdenme2 says:

    Poor Bob !!! Just another delusional lefty lost at sea !!! He needs to go Tango Uniform !!

  15. colleenf says:

    So now these idiots in the alphabet soup media think gun control is a civil rights issue?
    The Nazi regime is THIS administration.
