The Left has become quite angry, bitter, and seemingly violent of late. It seems that their seething anger, and calls for destroying the Constitution, and lynching, yes, lynching Republicans, especially Republican gun owners, is a fire out of control. To be honest, some of these nutty bastards make me wonder if we are Germany about 80 years ago or so. And yes, I just went THERE because when people start threatening me, and the Constitution that IS America, I tend to take them as a serious threat. Now, before you say I am just over reacting here, head over to American Power and read this from Donald Douglas
I clearly remember, back in the late-1990s, how the murder-by-dragging (lynching) death of James Byrd, in Beaumont, Texas, became a left-wing rallying cry against the purported “Jim Crow” racism the so-called “radical right.” So I’ll be waiting with bated breath for the progressive fever swamps to rise up in outrage at gun control extremist Donald Kaul’s exhortaton that the Republican House Speaker and Senate Minority Leader to be dragged to their deaths. See, “Nation needs a new agenda on guns.” After a long rant in which he confesses his “anger” at the Newtown massacre, here’s Kaul’s conclusion (viaMemeorandum):
Then I would tie Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, our esteemed Republican leaders, to the back of a Chevy pickup truck and drag them around a parking lot until they saw the light on gun control.
And if that didn’t work, I’d adopt radical measures. None of that is going to happen, of course. But I’ll bet gun sales will rise.
Interesting how Kaul calls for truly “radical” measures after that, which no doubt would be to simply kill all Republicans, kind of like how the Nazis tried to exterminate the Jews in the 1930’s and 1940’s.
Of course, Kaul will just say he is venting, or making some nuanced point that Conservative knuckledraggers are too stupid to comprehend, but in reality, he is just allowing his inner Fascist to show through. Leftists do that when they lose control of their emotions, which are usually on hyper drive anyway. So, no excuses Mr. Kaul, you are a hateful old man who cannot stand anyone who is not “like you”!
Donald Douglas also links to Nice Deb who warns us that the Fascists are coming!
Yes, of course, we are living through fascist times.
A political regime, usually totalitarian……ideologically based on centralized government……government control of business……repression of criticism or opposition……a leader cult……and exalting the state…above individual rights.
I no longer wonder how so many people who lived during Hitler’s evil reign of terror could have gone along with the unimaginable inhumanity of Naziism. I used to wonder about it. Not anymore.
I see horrifyingly evil “opinions” expressed by fellow Americans every day on Twitter, and in comment sections of blogs. They don’t just disagree with conservatives – they want us to shut up, lose our jobs, be financially ruined, or to drop dead. They actually root for Republicans to die, and when they do die, the ghouls celebrate their deaths. Not just one or two weirdos engage in this behavior – huge packs of them do.
Folks, you can choose to believe many things in life. You can delude yourself into believing that this is not the true face of Leftism, but you had better wake up, this IS who the Left is! Saberpoint pulls no punches
Since I was about 12, I have known that the communist left was dedicated to replacing America with a collectivist tyranny. I remember Khrushchev pounding his shoe on the table at the United Nations and threatening “We will bury you!” I became a news junkie at 13, scouring the San Jose Mercury News each morning for the latest Cold War developments.
I never could understand it. How could anyone believe in a totalitarian tyranny that destroys freedom, starves millions and executes millions more? Apparently, a lot of people do — or at least, believe in their version of it. The long march through the institutions was completed some time ago, and both academia and media have a near monopoly on the transmission of biased news, cultural demolition and the ability to affect public attitudes. The “closing of the American mind” is just about complete. Moonbattery blog has an article today called “Brainwashing Works.” The author, Dave Blount, points to a sign in NYC’s Penn Station where a graffiti artist has penned “Kill All Republicans!” This sentiment is not an isolated occurrence. Twitchy.com reports daily the most vile bile from the left, the unhinged hatred, the desire for violence against Republicans and conservatives. The Democrat Media Complex has created a vast swath of human botnets, which can be set off in mass to launch denial-of-liberty attacks on any and all who oppose the New Progressive Order. Like computer botnets, the human variety is programmed and programmable and act in concert, unhindered by scruples or actual thought.
Lately swarms of human maggots on Twitter have tweeted their joy at the death of General Norman Schwarzkopf yesterday, expressing hope that he died painfully and is now burning in Hell. They have said similar things about former President George H.W. Bush, who is in the hospital with a serious illness, hoping that he dies “in agony.” I do not recognize this leftist human scum as fellow citizens, but as traitors, agents of hostile foreign powers and ideologies. With the election of one of their own to the presidency, they are now emboldened to finish off the Republic, and as Blount notes at Moonbattery, are now in a rush to disarm us. A generation ago, Diane Feinstein’s proposed gun control bill (to photograph and fingerprint all gun owners) would have resulted in widespread outcry and alarm. A day or so after its announcement, there is hardly a peep from the populace.
The leadership of the Left bares much responsibility for this new “civility”. They have lied, and smeared anyone opposing their political agenda for decades now. They have sown the seeds of hatred, division, and they have done so with a campaign of vicious lies that have engendered hatred and bitterness in the minds of many Americans. Their goal is clear, they will use any means to achieve their ends. And yes, the ends they seek are evil. Both Fascism and Communism are antithetical to human rights. If you do not believe that, consider the hundreds of millions tortured and butchered by Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Castro, Pol Pot, Lennin, Che,and other Leftist dictators like them.
The rhetoric of the Left is rising, and becoming more menacing as their masks slip off. And make no mistake, they are at war with us, and have been making war on our Constitution for a long time. The only difference now, as William Jacobson points out, is that they are no longer seeking to hide their agenda
An Op-Ed in The New York Times from Georgetown Law Professor Louis Michael Seidman, Let’s Give Up on the Constitution:
AS the nation teeters at the edge of fiscal chaos, observers are reaching the conclusion that the American system of government is broken. But almost no one blames the culprit: our insistence on obedience to the Constitution, with all its archaic, idiosyncratic and downright evil provisions….
Our obsession with the Constitution has saddled us with a dysfunctional political system, kept us from debating the merits of divisive issues and inflamed our public discourse. Instead of arguing about what is to be done, we argue about what James Madison might have wanted done 225 years ago.
As someone who has taught constitutional law for almost 40 years, I am ashamed it took me so long to see how bizarre all this is…. Constitutional disobedience may seem radical, but it is as old as the Republic….
No one can predict in detail what our system of government would look like if we freed ourselves from the shackles of constitutional obligation, and I harbor no illusions that any of this will happen soon. But even if we can’t kick our constitutional-law addiction, we can soften the habit.
If we acknowledged what should be obvious — that much constitutional language is broad enough to encompass an almost infinitely wide range of positions — we might have a very different attitude about the obligation to obey.
These miscreants have feasted on our apathy for too long. They are dead set on turning America into a Leftist utopia. And we know, by history what those Leftist utopias always devolve into. And do not forget that there are some Liberals who are smart enough to see the war on our Constitution for what it is.
