There’s stupid and there’s weapons-grade stupid. And then there’s Keith Olbermann. The guy almost made it from reporting on grade school and high school football games to the bigtime with his own prime-time news and commentary show. Then he lost it – both the show and his grasp of reality.
Keith had (and still has) a couple of problems: he has a caustic personality and he spends too little time outside of his little bubble of fellow kooks.
After seeing the story of the career criminal and felon who illegally possessed a handgun and went out and killed a bunch of people with it earlier this week, Keith the Mensa-wannabe thinks he’s got a solution.
“We are OWNED by guns. Only one thing will change that.— Keith Olbermann (@KeithOlbermann) February 15, 2023
“We must have Economic Civil War. Blue States must financially starve the Red States, the Gun Lobby, the GOP, the Death Lobby, and the crooked judiciary into submission.

Here’s the transcript if you can’t bear to listen to this guy’s annoying voice:
We are owned by guns. And therefore, there is only one way to stop the mass shootings. It is to suffocate the businesses that make billions of dollars in profits off guns. To destroy the gun lobby, the death lobby, and the Republican party that defends those lobbies and those businesses.
And the only way to do that is an economic civil war. The blue states have all the money. They must starve the red states into submission, or another 600,000 Americans will be murdered in the next ten to twelve years.
The blue states have all the money? Does he mean Blue States like California and Illinois?
Can you spell douche canoe?
What is a douche canoe? From Urban Dictionary…
A Douche Canoe is an elongated version of a douchebag. Someone so full of themselves and narcissistic tendencies that are eerily misplaced considering they are jobless, live off women, cheat and are generally not able to be classified as anything but a douche canoe.
And look, they posted a convenient image to illustrate!
