Guns are Just the Latest Symptom of the Right's Anti-Obama Delusion
PoliticusUSA ^ | January 19, 2013 | Rmuse

Posted on 01/26/2013 5:41:26 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

There is an epidemic taking hold in America that appears immune to intervention or therapy, and despite the best effort of the nation’s brightest minds to find a cure, it seems likely to remain virulent, but limited to a particular segment of the population for the foreseeable future. The disease’s symptoms are beliefs with the strong conviction despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, and unlike beliefs based on confabulation, faulty or incomplete information, there are no known remedies for delusion. Unlike most severe mental disorders, this epidemic has a traceable beginning and a very predictable demise, but that is little comfort as it is just now reaching peak efficacy.

The current outrage and unfathomably ignorant claims from gun-fanatics that President Obama is sending federal forces to confiscate their precious firearms is a microcosm of the past four years of teabagger claims their liberties and freedoms are being trampled asunder. The fallacious claims go hand-in-hand with equally bogus charges the President is rending the Constitution apart in typical Fascist tyranny that leaves white, well-armed patriots little choice but to prepare for armed conflict to “reinstitute the basic tenets of the Constitution.” One might think the gun fanatics’ deluded claims the President is a dictator is the result of four years of tyranny, but the delusion began shortly after Obama’s inauguration and before the earliest stages of the healthcare reform debate. What is telling is that claims of tyranny, unconstitutional power grabs, and loss of liberty are the product of delusional thinking in that not one teabagger, gun fanatic, or real American can cite one instance of tyranny, loss of freedom, or unconstitutionality in any of the President’s actions. The overblown gun-control controversy is a perfect example of sheer delusion without a shred of proof the President is overstepping his Constitutional authority...

This site is actually more hateful than Alternet when it comes to politics. It’s a bunch of basement warriors who type out the worst sort of agit-prop vitriol in hopes of getting page views ... (and potentially, I think, tracing people who go there)...

Only 70 years ago, an American president confiscated the belongings of, and imprisoned in detention camps, thousands of Americans based solely on their ethnic background.

And FDR is still one of the left's biggest heroes.

Leftists are nothing but serfs in search of a lord.

Whatta bunch of cr*p. This writer is engaging in delusional self-projection. I'd suggest sending him to his "shrink" for a "reality adjustment"; but the shrinks, these days, don't know any better than he does, so cannot give him the help he so clearly needs in the "restoration of sanity" department.

May God help him — and us.

The timing of the cries of tyranny so early in the President’s first term before he proposed any legislation or agenda inform that the real source of discontent is not gun control, healthcare reform, or economic policy, but the color of the President’s skin, and if it is not a matter of race, then it is purely delusional thinking.

I got close to Cambodia on a bulldozer but I did not cross the border physically or have delusions of being there in 1967.

The 2nd A support right now is not (IMO) about self defense or fighting a tyrannical govt.

It is about having guns. And piling up guns and ammo. And making a statement!

“An armed society is a polite society” covers my theory.

It is about guns existing in the population to the extent that evil doers (at all levels) do not know where they are, and do not know what the gun holders might do with them.

This levels the ‘playing field’. It enables citizens to pursue life, liberty, and happiness.

They’re hijacking Savage’s famous saying about THEM-—”Liberalism Is A Mental Disorder”—and trying to apply it to patriots.

Yo Bro, thank you for your service, I was just a few months from being drafted during the war. I had friends who didn’t make it home and some who came back broken. I am thinking we are all going to have to stand up to the turds and take our country back. I pray that when it hits the fan guys like you will stand tall again and I will be there to help. It is so bad I think this line is appropriate “Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country”!

“i>What is telling is that claims of tyranny, unconstitutional power grabs, and loss of liberty are the product of delusional thinking in that not one… real American can cite one instance of tyranny, loss of freedom, or unconstitutionality in any of the President’s actions.”

-The health care contraception mandate - tyranny, loss of liberty and soon to be held unconstitutional?

-Recess appointments to NLRB - held unconstitutional

-obamacare - loss of liberty and tyranny since most people didn’t want it (and unconstitutional despite what Roberts held)

-Ignoring Court orders on the Gulf drilling moratorium - tyranny

-every proposed limit on the right to bear arms - tyranny and unconstitutional

-Strong arming banks to cut off the financing to gun manufacturers unless they support obama’s anti-2nd amendment agenda - tyranny

-Supporting illegal immigrants over sovereign state legislation on illegal immigration - tyranny

Feel free to add to the list.
