John "Pay Attention To Meeeeee" Rocker is doing god knows what with his time these days. I think there was a book? And maybe a black girlfriend? Even with his busy schedule, Rocker's been able to fit in a semi-regular column for loonypants conservative website WorldNetDaily. And his latest is something special.

It's about gun control, and a defense of conspiracy theorist radio host Alex Jones, who melted down on CNN last week. It's so freaking long and closes with a Benjamin Franklin quote that wasn't actually said by Benjamin Franklin. And also there's this:

"Absolute certainties are a rare thing in this life, but one I think can be collectively agreed upon is the undeniable fact that the Holocaust would have never taken place had the Jewish citizenry of Hitler's Germany had the right to bear arms and defended themselves with those arms."


Rocker's just following in the footsteps of noted athlete-orator Jason Babin, who cited a fake Hitler quote about gun control to make a similar point. But other than being hyperbolic, mildly offensive, and factually wrong, Rocker's argument is unimpeachable.
