Russell Brand Calls for Revolution

Nick Gillespie Destroys Rachel Maddow & Bill Maher Re: Fast & Furious

This discussion on Bill Maher’s HBO show about Fast & Furious was hard to watch. Maher, along with Rachel Maddow made the whiny case for why “conspiracy theorists” shouldn’t make a big deal about these ATF program (which resulted in the deaths of uncounted Mexicans and at least 2 Americans).

Background, for those who aren’t familiar: Fast & Furious is a Federally-funded program that intentionally shipped ~3,000 assault rifles to Mexican drug cartels. The stated aim was to track the guns, and later use them to arrest upper-level members of the cartel.

So, on self-described “libertarian” Bill Maher’s show, real libertarian Nick Gillespie, editor of Reason.com, and Rachel Maddow discussed this controversial topic.
