Larry Wilmore: Two Things Can Be Wrong At The Exact Same Time

“You mean to tell me the only people who don’t carry guns in Texas are security guards?” he asked.

Yep. We can support someone's right to free speech and point out what an a**hole she is to provoke an attack. Larry Wilmore on the Nightly Show, via Mediaite:

“No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, this is not a good idea,” The Nightly Show’s Larry Wilmoresaid when he first heard of Pamela Geller’s Muhammad cartoon contest in Garland, Texas that was attacked by jihadists Sunday night.The host was even more surprised when he learned that the security guard, who was shot in the ankle by the attackers, was unarmed. “You mean to tell me the only people who don’t carry guns in Texas are security guards?” he asked.

[...] “You know another thing that’s horrific, Pamela Geller?” Wilmore asked. “Intentionally putting innocent, unarmed security guards in danger so you can make some bullshit free speech argument.”“Make no mistake, it is absolutely, unequivocally wrong to shoot people who do things that offend you, but two things can be wrong at the exact same time,” Wilmore concluded. “Even if Pamela Geller’s argument about free speech is valid, she can still be a dick.”
