Dem Congressman Warns Of "Mob Scenes" Without "Equity In Society"
Real Clear Politics ^ | 6 Feb 2013 | Staff

Posted on 02/06/2013 1:12:07 PM PST by TADSLOS

-snip-

McDERMOTT: This whole society is gradually changing in response to what’s going on. Now, we’re in a very difficult period right now, because we have a lot of people who suddenly think it’s all about me. And it isn’t about me; it’s about we. If we don’t take care of one another, and we say everybody’s 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 don’t have equity in the society. I don’t want that. I want people to be able to have a peaceful life. And I think our system will work.

They want it ALL with NO effort.

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.

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.

Unless the "mob" includes squirrels, I don't think I'll see too many of them in my red county. (And mobs of squirrels already loot my bird feeders!)

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.

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.

Sure they'll riot, in their ghetto that they are afraid to leave to do their rioting.

When was the last time anyone saw them go out in the country to riot? Never?

They aren't that desperate.....yet, and rioting won't be part of that equation.

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.

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”.

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.

The Les Miserables analogy certainly works if you imagine Obama as Louis XVI and Michelle delivering "Let them eat cake".

But I don't think that's what McDermott, the useful idiot, had in mind.

Which is why the DHS wants those 7000 select fire M4s, for "protection," while attempting to deny citizens (i.e. taxpayers, home owners, and business owners) the ability to defend themselves from McDermott's mobs.

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.

This adam henry is lucky our military is so disciplined; I just read today that military pay will be cut (i.e., not the raise they expected). I wonder if this pol can tell me why oh why we simply can't cut the moochers bene's? Riots? Feh, so? America is an armed populace for a reason (hmmm, wonder why they want to take away our "guns"), to stave off tyranny and those who think they should have their way with other's belongings (that includes salaries!!).

Its time the "entitlement" class learn to do without and checkout those plain white wrapper groceries for a change...

I predict this year won't be half over before we start seeing this in a major way. Obama will be scrambling to shift blame away from himself for the economic chaos, much of it caused by his health care bill. Get ready for the ongoing vilification of Unpatriotic Parasite Corporations.

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.

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.

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?

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.
