Anti-Gun Bob Costas: Of Course I'm Not a Hypocrite For Having Armed Security

Anti-gun NBC anchor Bob Costas, the guy who infamously went on a rant about America's gangster gun culture before the Super Bowl last year, wants the world to know that he isn't a hypocrite for utilizing armed security. Afterall, he argued yesterday during an interview on Fox News, he's never had a personal armed guard. More from AWR Hawkins:

 On March 9th NBC's Bob Costas dismissed criticism of his having armed guards while disparaging "gun culture" by saying his guards were NBC and NFL security, not "personal" bodyguards.

 He did this while being interviewed by Fox News's Howard Kurtz, who brought up Costas's December 2012 halftime criticism of "the NFL's gun culture."

 Kurtz said, "You were accused of injecting politics into halftime, and Fox News's Greg Gutfeld said you were 'a hypocritical buffoon' because you're in New York, and you're surrounded by armed guards, and you don't have to worry about safety."

 Costas responded, "In truth, Greg was accurate if you consider one-hundred-eighty degrees from the truth accurate. I have never had a personal bodyguard a single day in my life. There are security people at NFL games that the NFL employs, and there is always massive security at an Olympics, and there... is NBC security."

 The problem with this explanation is that Gutfeld did not say Costas hired a "personal bodyguard." Rather, he said Costas "doesn't have to worry about being armed. People are armed for him."

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions.

uh, no, actually, you are a hypocrite.  even more so because you know you are but won't own up to it.

He's one of the Beautiful People, and thereby (among other things) both immune from hypocrisy and allergic to criticism.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

Mr. Costas doesn't need to fear. If he were getting mugged in my presence, I wish to assure him that I will stay my hand and not draw my pistol to defend him. I may call 9-1-1 on his behalf, though.
I come in peace, I didn't bring artillery.  But I am pleading with you with tears in my eyes:  If you bleep with me, I'll kill you all.

I didn't enlist in the Corps just to watch my country become a Third World Communist Shit-hole. Don't know anyone who did.

yes, but first you should caution him against jumping to conclusions about his attacker, or about being too hasty in trying to "defend" (wink, wink) himself; after all, he wouldn't want to kill another one of Obama's (misbegotten) sons now, would he?

Just what would Costas do? Give his attacker the Evil Pink Eye??

It would be an ugly scene if Costas got smacked in the face; all that plastic leaking wouldn't help his appearance at all.
