Salman Rushdie Opines on Aurora

Rushdie tweeted:

And then he got mad at those who took issue with his “pun.” For example, when answering critics who mentioned his armed guards protecting him from Iran:

FYI I’ve had no armed guards for 10 yrs. And nobody’s arguing against arming cops, soldiers. Just gun happy individuals like those here.

So, Rushdie can have armed guards but a normal American, who can’t afford said protection, can’t have a gun in their home to protect themselves?

Anyway, I responded to Rushdie’s tweet with, “The worst abt what @SalmanRushdie wrote about Bane is he thinks it’s witty. He’s a crappy writer made famous only bc of Islamic fascism.”

And then he blocked me. Tolerance in action.
