Is the MySpace poster serious, or is he just trying to make the Brady Bunch look bad?
You missed the (most obvious to me) third possibility: The poster is trying to make Mr. Zumbo look bad.
P.S. I don't have to explain how that works.
After I posted it and saw your comment, I looked a bit further into what they were saying, it started smelling bad (unfortunatly, because if it was really them, that content was pure gold in terms of debunking the 'we won't take your hunting guns' meme they like to trot out).
The Bradys are many things, but one thing they generally aren't is that stupid. Fortunately for us, they don't have a real grass roots to deal with, but the benefit of that is that they can exercise a lot more control over their message. I'd really be interested to know who was running that MySpace page.
It looks like the MySpace "Brady Campaign" blog entry that is under discussion has gone down the memory hole.
The MySpace blog has changed dramatically in the last couple of days and the post about Zumbo's blog appears to be gone. However, the blog as currently up _does_ source material directly from the Brady web sites. Look at the html source for the site and you will find a couple of tags that start "img src="http://www.bradycampaign.org/xshare/myspace/images". It sure gives the appearance that the Brady Campaign has some type of a presence on MySpace. Discovered by Sebastian
Some questions: Does the Brady Campaign in any fashion endorse the MySpace blog? Is the "repudiation" genuine? Even if the statement was not made by the Brady Campaign, how does it differ from their "position" on the subject?
(I don't expect anybody here to answer any of this. Just something to think about. )
If there is some gun-nut trying to make the Brady Bunch, he (or she) needs to be rapidly outed and roundly condemned. It is not the tactic to use here. (Besides, can you imagine the mess the lefties would make out of such story?)
The MySpace statements may well not be official Brady statements, but I still have a very hard time believing they wouldn't support bans on hunting rifles as the MySpace poster advocated if it came down to that. They already support gun bans to the extent those bans have been put in place in New York, Washington and Chicago.
Yes, but they won't admit to that. It's far too early. THAT "next step" is long down the path.
*GACK* C'mon guys. The link to this showed up in the comments of the FIRST Zumbo post about ten comments AFTER someone said (in effect) "the antis are gonna run with Zumbo's 'terrorist weapon" and 'no need' statements".
Y' don't need complex conspiricy theories -- it's all laid out FOR you...
I came at this from a different angle. Although I think the brady myspace page was fake, I pretty much prove that they control it now (and all the zumbo content has been scrubed)
