Skip to comments.Dem Congressman Warns Of "Mob Scenes" Without "Equity In Society"
Posted on 02/06/2013 1:12:07 PM PST by TADSLOS
McDERMOTT: This whole society is gradually changing in response to whats going on. Now, were in a very difficult period right now, because we have a lot of people who suddenly think its all about me. And it isnt about me; its about we. If we dont take care of one another, and we say everybodys on their own, then it will simply fall apart as a society: become a mob scene, as it was in Paris if you go see Les Misérables. You can see what the country can become, if you dont have equity in the society. I dont want that. I want people to be able to have a peaceful life. And I think our system will work.

This man will vote to enslave you.
“Equity” being the free money and benefits to those who do not earn taken from those that do. Yep, ‘em folks what’s used to “their” money are gonna riot, I guarantee.
‘When you don’t know what you want, you want everything’
They want it ALL with NO effort.
Talk about slavery? THAT is a hell all its own....
I took his words as a veiled threat. Go along or face the mobs.
I’ve heard this “reasoning” from leftists before -
if we don’t pay off the underclass, they’ll turn to violence.
My response, of course, was that if the consequences for turning to violence instead of work are severe enough, they’ll choose work.
So does this mean that, unless my taxes are lowered to the point that I can afford to buy the better food and drive the better cars which I see those with Food Stamps buying, then I would be justified in being part of McDermott’s mobs?
I’m not alone in this on FR, I know -
I believe that the current people in power would turn the full force of the police state on those who would defend their lives and property from these mobs.
translation: the Brown Shirt Mobs have all received their Obamaphones and are on Speed Dial
um... here’s an idea! if you don’t like the growing inequity in society ... then... STOP LETTING 3rd WORLD PEOPLE INVADE OUR COUNTRY!
God gave the natural duty to pursue happiness and the natural right to pursue happiness to each individual. They do not apply to a society as a whole.
Hey Congressman, are you giving away everything you GROSS above the median income? You want equity? Show us how its done!
Otherwise, take your veiled threats and shove them. Or better yet, rile up your mob and send them out into the red state areas to take some “equity” from the bitter clingers.
Our National Socialist Democrat Party is moving along at top speed to make tax slaves out of those who still work. They have always been the party of slavery and oppression and are striving to bring back that institution under new socialist terms.
FUBO & FAD
wow... these people are going to cause a breakdown in civilization and this is their excuse?
I hope you’re not under any illusion that WE (conservatives) WON’T be blamed when the economy crashes.
As for the rest -- I've been predicting that things will get ugly under the blue towers when the EBT cards stop working, or a Big Mac costs $300.
McDermott is no different than the leadership in communist countries, he believes the working class should be equal but that doesn’t include the elites like himself and his cronies.
and let’s not forget that Les miserables led straight to the reign of Terror followed by the ever lovable Napoleon
McDermott is an idiot just like the rest of the democrats and socialists. The equity they want is in results, not opportunity. There is already equity in opportunity, it is just that a lot of people don’t want to do the work to get the results.
When was the last time anyone saw them go out in the country to riot? Never?
My exact thought. ..
“They that sow the wind, shall reap the whirlwind”
They aren't that desperate.....yet, and rioting won't be part of that equation.
Inciting a riot, Congressman?
May as well get CW-II over as soon as possible so we can start rebuilding asap.
Doesn’t Mr. Mcdermott know that Les Miserables is fiction.
Forgot to add - don’t even think we’ll consider rebuilding NYC, LA, etc. Level ‘em and salt the ground.
Then burn it again.
We want to remove all vestiges of the ancient, disgraced, and thoroughly unworkable liberalism.
And McDermott is going to install himself as the decider of what is equitable, naturally.
If this idiot thinks the mob scenes in Les Mis are scary, wait until the left intensifies the push to destroy the Second Amendment.
As Jimmy Durante often observed “Ya’ ain’t seen nuttin’ yet”.
lol. I’m not
To what do the numbers refer?
He also apparently doesn’t know what happened when the “equality” proponents took control.
Numbers are the vote margin in the 2012 election. eg. in Los Angeles county, Obama won 662,350 more votes than Romney in the 2012 election.
Thanks for the info.
But I don't think that's what McDermott, the useful idiot, had in mind.
My wife said to me this morning she didn’t understand why most of the homeless she now sees have cellphones.
I had to explain to her the Obamaphone program. She asked, even with a free phone, how can they pay the monthly bill? I said, I assume we’re the chumps paying it, like everything else.
When we were younger, she was a Democrat. Now she just shakes her head.
Its time the "entitlement" class learn to do without and checkout those plain white wrapper groceries for a change...
And yet when you even mention the Obamaphone program to a Lib they go bat-dung crazy with denials that such a thing even exists, and then they accuse you of being a racist kook conspiracy theorist for even bringing it up.
Yeah great, another RAT bolshevik who lives like a king. And a wiretapping Saddam-lover as well.
When there is nothing left on the shelves to loot, the mobs will be forced to fan out.
Watch as inner city supermarkets are mobbed and looted once food prices go up. Nothing is free—now that Obama is re-elected no need to give away more junk to the stupid sheeple. Gangs in trucks will then go for the suburbs and loot the stores in the areas outside of the inner Cities. before 2014 I believe we will see guards armed with M-16s at every store.
Basically what McDermott is saying is: “if you don’t fork over your dough, me and my ahem friends are going to ki.....uh do you some serious harm.”
Are you talking about entitlements - EBT, TANF, Section 8 etc?
I don't see any entitlements going away at all.
What makes you think that will happen?
I am in that camp too. Let things fall where they may and start the rebuilding.
I’m not a Korean shop owner in LA, and I lost my assault weapons in a boating accident, but you never know what might happen....
While I doubt he meant it, but if he’s talking MOB SCENES, then he’s making a better case against gun control than even the NRA is able to make.
So we should take help anywhere we can find it on this issue.
