Actor Ron Perlman has posted a lot of dumb things on social media, but the now-deleted, stunningly racist tweet he sent following the historic 6-3 Supreme Court ruling in favor of New York gun owners and the 2nd Amendment was next-level ludicrous, even for him.
“The latest Supreme Court decision on firearms neglects to say the one thing that they actually meant to say; for whites only,” he boldly signaled with what he must have thought was viral-worthy virtue.
Well, it went viral alright — for all the wrong reasons.
See, there’s just one problem with Perlman’s race-baiting rant: The decision was written by a black man.
“It’s like some of you are getting dumber in real time,” one user replied.
Why’d you delete this, @perlmutations? Did you figure out a Black man is responsible for the decision?

“Even better,” another user chimed in, “he did not read what Justice Thomas wrote.”

A short prologue is in order. Even before the Civil War commenced in 1861, this Court indirectly affirmed the importance of the right to keep and bear arms in public. Writing for the Court in Dred Scott v. Sandford, 19 How. 393 (1857), Chief Justice Taney offered what he thought was a parade of horribles that would result from recognizing that free blacks were citizens of the United States. If blacks were citizens, Taney fretted, they would be entitled to the privileges and immunities of citizens, including the right “to keep and carry arms wherever they went.” Id., at 417 (emphasis added). Thus, even Chief Justice Taney recognized (albeit unenthusiastically in the case of blacks) that public carry was a component of the right to keep and bear arms–a right free blacks were often denied in antebellum America.
According to Thomas’s opinion, the state of New York violated the Constitution by requiring applicants to prove they had “a special need” for protection before issuing a concealed carry permit.
Citing two previous gun cases, Thomas wrote, “In this case, petitioners and respondents agree that ordinary, law-abiding citizens have a similar right to carry handguns publicly for their self-defense. We too agree, and now hold, consistent with Heller and McDonald, that the Second and Fourteenth Amendments protect an individual’s right to carry a handgun for self-defense outside the home.”
“Because the State of New York issues public-carry licenses only when an applicant demonstrates a special need for self-defense,” he stated, “we conclude that the State’s licensing regime violates the Constitution.”
In other words, the Supreme Court ruling does exactly the opposite of what Perlman tried to push and ensures that no arbitrary standards — like, say, the color of a person’s skin or their political affiliation or even their profoundly ignorant tweets — can infringe on their Constitutionally-protected right to keep and bear arms.
“He really is the dumbest bastard ever,” one user said of the former “Beauty and the Beast” star.
He really is the dumbest bastard ever.

He always seems to have the worst possible take on any issue.

His unhinged tweets should be the reason for red flag laws. This man is not well, he shouldn’t have access to anything dangerous, and should be referred for court mandated mental health services for the violent rhetoric he spews.
