Inside the Twisted Mind of a Gun Grabber Pt. 3: Moms Demand Action’s Heather Whaley Edition

So a Mom from Moms Demand Action (formerly and laughingly called One Million Moms for Gun Control) rings-up Senator Corker’s office. Heather Whaley pretends to be a paranoid schizophrenic thanking Senator Corker for supporting her Second Amendment rights. Which is lame on more levels than The Providence Place parking garage. But then Whaley browbeats Corker’s secretary into affirming her fake perspective. Which, to her credit, she doesn’t. Imagine if a pro-2A supporter bullied Senator Schumer’s assistant the same way. And then ask yourself what kind of person would do such a thing. If you’re struggling with that one, I’ve got a simple answer: a paranoid schizophrenic. As Kurt Vonnegut warned in Mother Night, “We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.” Combined with something about a mask slipping.
