Anti-Gun Columnist Asks If It’s Time for the Government to Kill “Gun Nuts”
Crooks and Liars.com copied by Guns Save Lives ^ | June 24, 2014 | Dan Cannon

Posted on 06/24/2014 8:42:32 PM PDT by lbryce

Here is an excerpt from a column by Susie Madrak over at CrooksandLiars.com, But Perlstein doesn’t mention the big honkin’ elephant in the room: Namely, at what point does the federal government literally go to war with its own citizens? Because we’re not talking about bank robbers here, we’re talking about (mostly) non-criminal cranks — scofflaws and political malcontents. So what line has to be crossed in the good old U.S. of A. before we start mowing them down to make our point? Because you can’t talk about the Bundy ranch without talking about Ruby Ridge, and Waco. So here’s the political corner into which we’ve painted ourselves. Do we have the ATF and BLM agents roll up in armored tanks? Do we use drone strikes? I can see the administration’s reluctance to have that confrontation — after all, it’s not as if gun control advocates were flooding the White House switchboard, screaming to ‘take them out!’ And then we do have the militia types all over the country, just waiting for an excuse to start their own local uprising. These assholes want a civil war so bad, they can taste it.

Um, first off, what the hell is a “gun nut” exactly? Is someone who agrees with you on all of your other political issues but happens to have a collection of 10+ firearms a “gun nut”? Is the Libertarian who owns a handgun for self defense a “gun nut”? Is it only people who disagree with your other political stances?

Second, most gun owners are not sitting around waiting for the second civil war. Most gun owners are people you interact with every single day and you never have any idea that they have a gun safe at home and enjoy going to the shooting range on weekend.

The truth is, that's the first thing every liberal asks themselves when they get up in the morning.

It's never been on a liberal wish list because they had so many items on their sexual depravity agenda, killing 'gun nuts', as high on their priority list that it is for liberals, it is, after all, the gay agenda with all its depraved corollary demands to getting them done had to be dealt with, made to happen first and foremost.

Now, with most gay agenda items having been made part of Americana, they now have the time, luxury, record of success to go after 'gun nuts' and letting the government doing the dirty work that they themselves won't get involved in. "Gun-nuts" by its very definition sounds much easier to dispel, eliminate, facilitate despite the Second Amendment, than say, gay marriage, suing the church for not wanting to officiate gay marriage, all items regarding unnatural, depraved acts of sexuality. Now that they've won, now that they've proven immorality as a viable life alternative, people who own guns seem much easier, legislatively, to deal with and eliminate.

I wonder if Perlstein has ever heard the post-holocaust expression “Never a again!” and has thoughts on its meaning when uttered by an unarmed man.

A good deal is granting immunity to gangsters and cartels going after antigunners nuts... But since our tuber meant wants to rid of our guns first, I would not be surprised if they have a selective deal with the cartels to take us out first.

Hence if not government, then liberals will request traitor terrorists for help.

Makes sense.

Entire bookcases of very heavy reading, written by scholars, have been penned in an attempt to understand how on Earth the Nazis ever came to power and then how they managed to convince the vast majority of Germans to participate in a nationwide crime. Some have posited that it all relied on some peculiarities of human behavior unique to Germans and the Germanic culture.

Apparently not.

Something that amazes and infuriates me here is the casual and insistent insulting of anyone who is overweight or obese, especially since statistics tell us that it is almost certain that 50-75% of the people here fall within that category. Is that a “conservative” thing and I somehow missed that meeting? I’m not defending this woman, per se, but I have to believe that many people making jokes and casting aspersions on fat people are they themselves out of shape, flabby, fat, portly, chubby, overweight or worse. Please explain that to me.

I have a friend who would have had to starve himself to illness to meet reenlistment requirements. He weighs 30 pounds more than I do at the same height and that’s mostly muscle. His wrists are twice the diameter of mine. Their loss, my employer’s gain.

Your post that says, “ their sexual depravity agenda, killing ‘gun nuts’, as high on their priority list that it is for liberals, it is, after all, the gay agenda with all its depraved corollary...”

The depravity of the homosexuals, their effeminate enablers, and their aversion to self-protection and weapons, reminds of the following quote:

“A fear of weapons is a sign of retarded sexual and emotional maturity.”
—Sigmund Freud, General Introduction to Psychoanalysis (1952)

Don't get me wrong, I don't pick on or ridicule over weight people because of their weight. I ridicule them if they are libtards who are part of the establishment that wants to tell us and our kids what we should eat, what we should not eat, how much we should exercise and in general how we should live our lives.

I also ridicule overweight people when they have physical handicaps that are a direct result of their weight and they whine about their handicap but refuse to acknowledge which is the obvious, they need to lose weight.

I had a very obese cousin. Doctor basically told here to lose weight or die. She did not whine about it. She got her stomach stapled, exercised, and lost about 300 pounds. She feels great.

I used to work at wall mart. It was always sad that the genuinely handicapped would sometimes have a hard time finding a handicap parking space or electric cart because the obese were using them all. One of the regulars at wall mart that I knew who was handicapped used to always come in early so he could get a parking spot and get an electric cart. I used to talk to him and he would bitch about all the fat a$$es hogging the electric carts. His words, not mine.

In conclusion I will say that I do not ridicule people based solely on their weight. I ridicule them for other reasons.

BTW, I got a good case going on where my 6 pack used to be.

Oh and please, don't bring up glandular problems. I know about glandular problems and I feel for anyone who has it.

Yes sir, Rush Limbaugh was correct, politics is for the UGLY!!!!

Or better yet Fu-ugly. let your thoughts guide you on just what is 'Fu' & 'ugly'. Hint, the 'Fu' is still one of the sevens words you can't say on broadcast television. {Thank you George Carlin, stand-up comedian, social critic, satirist, actor, and writer/author ...}

See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_dirty_words

On the above page it's the third word listed, but please add a 'ing' to the end of the aforesaid word.

If you go by the BMI equation, and turn sideways, if you are still visible you're fat or worse. It all depends on how large a shadow you cast.

Part of the phenomenon relates to people who aren't in any better physical shape telling the rest of us how to live (Moochelle, for instance). While many of us are not perfect, we tire of those with obvious flaws telling us how to live, and will waste no time pointing those flaws out.

‘These assholes want a civil war so bad, they can taste it.’

I sure sounds like the author is in cvil war mode and willing to start the killing.

Here, again, is a perfect example of why the right doesn’t get it. Liberals like guns and own them. Their problem with guns is that you can have them. They also see nothing wrong w/ genocide as long as it meets the goals of their agenda. I give you abortion as a prime example. However, they have no qualms about breaking into your house and killing you w/ their guns b/c of nothing more substantial than ideology. They’re motivated by hate and murder. Its no more complex than that....

Don't forget this Flashback:

Eyewitness to the Ayers Revolution
An interview with Weathermen insider/FBI informant Larry Grathwohl on whether to believe Obama when it comes to Bill Ayers.
http://pjmedia.com/blog/eyewitness-to-the-ayers-revolution/?singlepage=true
When Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn led the domestic terrorist group Weather Underground in 1969, a chance meeting led Army veteran Larry Grathwohl into joining the group. Grathwohl served as a courier, running messages between the group’s leadership (called the “Weather Bureau”) and individual cells that were to carry out attacks.

Grathwohl was also an informant for the FBI.

In an interview from the 1982 documentary No Place To Hide that recently surfaced, Grathwohl discussed what the Weathermen intended to do after overthrowing the U.S. government, including what they would do with those Americans who refused to embrace communism.

I asked, “Well what is going to happen to those people we can’t reeducate, that are diehard capitalists?” And the reply was that they’d have to be eliminated.

And when I pursued this further, they estimated they would have to eliminate 25 million people in these reeducation centers.

And when I say “eliminate,” I mean “kill.”

Twenty-five million people.

I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people, most of which have graduate degrees, from Columbia and other well-known educational centers, and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people.

And they were dead serious.

How much of a chance would a bunch of ganstas with 9s and AKs have against a group of farm boys with scoped 30-08s and experience hunting deer.

ON the farm boys’ turf. Because if there is such a confrontation it won’t be because the farm boys got dumb and went into urban areas looking for trouble.

How does my correspondent "know" that his neighbors would murder him if they had guns? He doesn’t. What he was really saying was that if he had a gun, he might murder his neighbors if he had a bad day, or if they took his parking space, or played their stereos too loud. This is an example of what mental health professionals call projection – unconsciously projecting one’s own unacceptable feelings onto other people, so that one doesn’t have to own them.
