No words. I mean…just…wow. Two days ago, outspoken gun control advocate and professional witch, Bette Midler, literally told the world in a tweet to “come armed” in order to protest the NRA conference.

This is insane on so many levels. Just to pick one, how can she possibly reconcile protesting firearms with firearms? I mean…I’ll just leave it there.

  1. I can see it now. All of her followers rush out to buy guns but then they find out that their state has a waiting or that their marijuana medical card prohibits them from buying a gun.

    • I dont know about that rush out to buy stuff anymore.
      Been a lot of gunms sold recently and we cant say all of them were sold to 2A advocates.

  2. I’m trying to imagine a gun owner, ready to take up and against the NRA, and who takes his marching orders from Better Milder. It’s like trying to imagine square circles, or colorless green ideas sleeping furiously.

    • I think Midler’s “matched pair of .45s” have elongated into something down around her waist and the stretching has placed a real strain on the grey matter…

    • My guess is if i or any of the regular readers of TTAG made such a tweet we’d rightfully be getting a visit from the Feds. How do some people get away with this stuff while others are severely punished for such obnoxious and potentially dangerous tweets??? Yeah I know, the double standard is obvious, but it still stinks like spoiled fish on a hot summer day. BTW, the NRA is non existent to me, so I’m not pointing out the location aspect of Midler’s call for armed protest, just the whole idea of a call for armed protest being broadcast on a very large social media (cancer) platform. It’s beyond ridiculous and these days, very dangerous.

  3. “Just to pick one, how can she possibly reconcile protesting firearms with firearms?”

    Easy peasy. They’re the good guys, so it’s justified! Of course they have to be prepared to defend themselves against the racist, bloodthirsty gun lobby. The dirty little secret is that they actually love guns, as long as they’re in the hands of their security detail (or their zombie sheep army) and out of the hands of the icky people.

  4. She is a mental case.

    WHAT ABOUT THIS surprises you so much…sir? There is no “wow” here.

    This is the craziness that keeps me off Twitter. Now she has set herself up as a suspect if someone there is shot.

    • Nah, haven’t you heard? I read just today that it is the Republican Party that is responsible for Buffalo and Uvalde, so if anyone gets shot in Houston, it must be the Republicans’ fault.

      • Must be true, Mark. There’s a wasted-looking guy outside the Hilton down here holding up a big sign that claims just that… Republicans are responsible.

  5. That would be awesome if all of her fans tried to buy guns, at minimum it’ll nudge them closer to our side. Just them finding out that, no, buying a gun is not as easy as buying a loaf of bread will help. The ones who are successful in buying one will find out all the safety and law stuff that goes along with having a gun…they’ll either find out the easy way or the hard way but they will find out.

  6. Maybe the Left’s armed stormtroopers (Antifa/John Brown Gun Club/Redneck Revolution/NFAC) will heed Midler’s call?

    Remember, Midler and the rest of the modern day Left want you dead. By any means necessary…

  7. butt “bathhouse betty” muddler.
    the andrews sisters sang the definitive version of bugle boy; it didn’t need to be covered. watch “buck privates.”
    m, ftb.

  8. “…how can she possibly reconcile protesting firearms with firearms?”

    Because it’s about power and nothing else.

    Lefties love guns. Revolutionaries always do.

      • i share your disdain and consider her useless.
        14 studio albums
        20 tours fronm’70- ’15
        42 film appearances, some of which you’ve heard of
        44 tv appearances from ’70- ’20
        9 stage roles from ’67- ’18
        half the nation disagrees with us. she’d sell out any large venue today. adored by the bathhouse crew and yer basic fembot.

  9. That’s a threat, that’s incitement. If anyone is dumb enough to act it will be their first and last time. And bette sitting high above the fray will spend time in cuffs and in the cross bar hotel.

    • So, you’re going to shoot people with guns that bring guns to a place where gun rights are being encouraged and celebrated……Sounds fucked up to me.

      • Innocent people who happen to be gun enthusiasts vs organized “protesters” coming armed to start trouble. Is your screen name a self own?

  10. If you Republicans who love dead babies so much won’t give up your guns willingly, what are we supposed to do? We’ll have to bring our own to take yours obviously.

    • David anytime any place you can bring your gun to my house and we can do it western style if you like, fast draw. Make sure you have someone to take you home because your are nothing but a loud mouth coward and a punk.

    • Oooh, oooh ooooohhhhh!! Some Bri’ish kunt is threatening to take our guns! The Bri’ish are coming! The Bri’ish are coming! We get to whip their arses AGAIN!!

    • And what property will you willingly have confiscated for the good of society?

      Perhaps the ribbed “Cassius” buzz cut girl has stuck up your behind?

  11. You’ve got it all wrong.

    She didn’t say to “bring guns.”

    She said to “come armed.”

    Obviously, she is prejudiced against amputees.

  12. You see they can advocate insurrection and riots and violence but let someone on the right protest and they are pounced on in an instance. Time to fight folks and put these weenies in their place. The hypocrisy of these people is intolerable. She here you have another anti-gunner like Alex Baldwin who has yet to be charged for killing someone, encouraging people to bring guns to the NRA Convention. I am sure here intentions for suggesting that were not simply to revel in gun ownership with fellow gun owners.

  13. Bette needs to read up on the NRA. We’re not afraid of civilian ownership of guns. If she wants all of her peeps go go buy a gun. have at it. Just remember the 4 rules please

  14. I’m kinda scratching my head on this one. In order to attend a protest, armed, you have to have an arm to carry. So, uhhhh, she’s asking gunowners to protest the right to bear arms? Who’s going to show up? Unarmed bears? Armless veterans? Ballless liberals? Oh wait – that last was redundant.

    • Who’s gonna show up.. pretty sure Ray Liotta won’t be making it…. too bad, he was a gun guy, and reamed ass over Alec Baldwin’s massive movie set fuckup… he’d be pretty easy to spot carrying the “Kiss my ass, Bette” sign in the crowd.

  15. It’s not hard to reconcile at all. Encouraging gun owners to come a protest a breathtakingly corrupt organization that has for years been purporting to support their rights and then stealing members money money for the higher ups to line their own pockets is not hard to grasp at all.

  16. In reality she probably was more intelligent than most people because she realizes the sadistic jack booted Far Right will probably attack the peaceful protestors. She is well aware that the FBI lists the most hate murders as being committed by the sadistic jack booted far right nut cases.

    • You need to get your hate murders categorized better. Black shooters are unlikely to be affiliated with the right. Black SUV murderers are more likely to be left, than right. Hispanic shooters probably aren’t Republican. Teenage shooters are probably politically neutral. Islamic Jihadists aren’t American right. And, just plain stupid people like yourself are always leftists. And, ugly people, like yourself, are unwelcome at any Republican convention.

      • In 2021, domestic extremists killed at least 29 people in the United States, in 19 separate incidents. This represents a modest increase from the 23 extremist-related murders documented in 2020 but is far lower than the number of murders committed in any of the five years prior (which ranged from 45 to 78).
        The 2021 murder totals were low primarily because no high-casualty extremist-related shooting spree occurred this past year. Such sprees are the main contributor to high murder totals.
        Most of the murders (26 of 29) were committed by right-wing extremists, which is usually the case. However, two killings were committed by Black nationalists and one by an Islamist extremist—the latter being the first such killing since 2018.
        Most of the 2021 murders were committed by people associated with longstanding extremist movements, such as white supremacy and the sovereign citizen movement. However, 2021 continued the trend of recent years of seeing some murders from newer types of extremism, including QAnon adherents, people associated with the toxic masculinity subculture of the “manosphere” and anti-vaccination extremists.
        White supremacists killed more people in 2021 than any other type of extremist, though not an outright majority, as is often the case. An in-depth look at white supremacist killings over the past 10 years demonstrates the dangers posed by alt right white supremacists and white supremacist prison gangs.

        The year 2021 saw extremism flourish in the United States, starting in early January when a large angry mob attacked the U.S. Capitol, intent on interfering with the certification of the results of a free and fair presidential election. The Capitol stormers included white supremacists, militia members, sovereign citizens, Qanon and other conspiracy adherents, as well as Trumpist extremists radicalized by election-related conspiracy theories promulgated by Donald Trump and his associates. As of early 2022, the FBI has arrested over 750 people for crimes connected to the storming of the Capitol.[1]

        As in most years, lethal extremist violence in 2021 was heavily dominated by right-wing extremism. All but three of the 29 murders (90%) documented in this report had ties to forms of right-wing extremism, including white supremacy, anti-government extremism of several types, right-wing conspiracy theory adherents and toxic masculinity adherents.

        • dacian, the Dunderhead More horse pucky? ADL? So what? It’s another Leftist organization. they start out with a conclusion and manufacture stats to prove it. Who defines what an “extremist” is?
          How about the murders, looting, rioting and burning of the Summer is 2020 committed by your ANTIFA and BLM stormtroopers. Are they included in your “statistics”?

    • Because they thought “barricaded shooter” means they want a few million dollars and plane ride to Cuba?

  17. A brain dead has been screeching harpie. Why should I care what she thinks, says, or does?

  18. have a way to appease the control people, make it illegal for all democrats to possess firearms, take away THEIR 2nd rights, if they think it’s dangerous, then THEY should have any. see how far that’ll go.

  19. Does BM (double meaning & digestive reference intentional) even know how to *come armed*? Most of her ilk take pride in their ignorance of anything related to firearms. This makes as much sense as Biden’s advice to *just fire the shotgun through the door* or *walk out on the balcony here …. and fire two [shotgun] blasts outside the house*. That’s why these people want gun control, aka confiscation; they think everyone is as ignorant as they are.

  20. This is no surprise at all. It’s been clear for decades that these communists love violence. They want guns to protect them and to oppress the free people of this country and are overjoyed to use violence against us. Their ‘anti-gun’ stance has always been in bad faith. The fear free people and want us under their boot. Only fools and their corrupt minions even listen to their anti-gun babble any more.

  21. What’s the difference between Bette Midler and a clogged trench ?? A clogged trench is a Bum Ditch!

  22. What’s the problem? Go for it. You have a right to be armed and to protest. That old outdated Constitution is actually pretty handy, isn’t it?

  23. “How hypocritical can you get?”

    Hypocrisy isn’t plus or minus. It is simply a tool. A tool has no ideology/agenda. If hypocrisy harms people in getting the job done (gaining power), blame the user, not the tool.
