I don't even know where to begin to think about this.

Civil war in the making? There's millions of these nuts out there.

I think freedom of speech is a sacrosanct, but this guy is a cretinous uncivil nauseous thug.

Tom Hickey said...

Freedom of speech has limits and consequences. Freedom of speech does not include any right to threaten other with violence, especially government officials, nor does include a right to incite violence. Or try joking about a bomb in an airport.

After threatening Sec. Kerry, I would be surprised if this nutcase is not the terrorist surveillance watch list.

The government and corporations and Dems and Repubs DO need to be pressured to change. But how on earth can the left ever work with the far right to apply pressure to government when this is the mentality. *shrug* This is why the Repubs take crazy positions to appeal to these characters. So hopeless.

This is the trade off that happens when you have to remove a government from power. The Masses of people that are angry enough and are ready to remove the government from power by definition have a few screws loose otherwise they would never attempt it. The rational thing is to be compliant and complain like the rest of us but never really do anything that threatens the status quo. Sure we might go hold a sign and yell at a politician but we don't ever get anything done, the government thinks we are background noise, a joke. If we start to have success they bring out the steam cleaners to clean up the mess we have created.

There are a number of right-leaning people I know, or used to know, who I simply don't talk to any more because they have been sucked into this kind of crazy-as-a-loon, far right psychological black hole.

Fruitcake is for Christmas, and we don't have to smell it the rest of the time.

Looks like a heavy dose of metal-love with the gun stuff ("lower" metals though) seasoned with some strong homophobia...

Fear or impotence? Or both?

That was appalling and nauseating. Like Tom said, there are millions of these nuts out there. You'll find hundreds of them at Karl Denninger's website if you're so inclined to look there.

I fear for our world.

I put this right wing rhetoric in the category of the old saying: strong back, weak mind. The soldier that defends you might not speak eloquently, might actually be pretty lame, but you are damn happy they point and shoot the gun to protect you. When you strip out the paranoia and rhetoric their message isn't too far apart in practical terms over what they want fixed in government. Obviously they don't understand how the system works and hence have a silly solution.
There is simply no chance they pose any threat whatsoever to the two party regime in Washington. If you think they do, you need to closely examine how many layers of security protect us from physical violence.

I think the government is far more afraid of Hickey, Norman or Mosler than they are of this goof because he will never gain popular support. I'm absolutely certain each of you have a nice thick file and your every word and post is documented periodically because people in growing number actually listen to you guys and Wray and Kelton and Black..... the numbers grow daily.

The profanity makes the guy unintelligible. Even if there was truth in what he says, I'm not willing to swim through sewage to find it.

Not that liars can't be sweet talkers...

Ryan, I agree to some extent that most are well-intention but misguided patriots, many ex-military or in the military. But that doesn't mean that they are not either a threat, or at least over the top wrt to speech and behavior. Violence is neither a joke nor a metaphor with them.

And assuredly my file goes back to the Sixties although I have not bothered with a FOIA request to see it. I'm proud of standing on principle.

But there's a huge difference between left and right on this. Serious violence and calls to revolt violently, kill public officials, etc. are pretty sparse on the left but not the right.

The worst terrorist attack on the US prior to 9/11 was Tim McVeigh's attack on a federal building. There are a lot of people on the right out there "on the edge" if not over, not only in the US but in many other countries, and they constitute the backbone of a potential for fascist resurgence like we are already seeing the rise of in Greece.
