The Nutters Are Really Losing It

Shares

The nutters are really losing it. Wrap your brain around this “logic.”  Upset about a Homeland Security Report that suggests the nation needs to be aware of the threat of right-wing extremism and violence, the nutjob fringe at Red State posted this:

It is now officially time: burn the Obama brownshirt agenda to the ground. Sift the ashes. Grind the shards into powder.

Oh, and this:

They take territory, we fall back. They grow an obscenely large and intrusive government bit by bit, we accept it. They take the courts, we retreat and regroup. They turn public schools and universities into indoctrination camps. And still, we retreat. They blatantly steal Senate seats [Stevens and Coleman, this time around], publicly laugh about it, and we fall back.

Damn those voters for stealing elections from Republicans. Damn those courts for trying to protect civil liberties and the Constitution. Damn those schools for handing children books!

And they quote Patrick Henry:

There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable — and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come!

Yeah, no reason at all to be worried about these people. Ideological movements in their death throes are dangerous things.

  • this is terrifying and so telling of them. i absolutely love that when things don't go their way, they allude to violence automatically. it's really pathetic. nice post, po.

  • "It is now officially time: burn the Obama brownshirt agenda to the ground. Sift the ashes. Grind the shards into powder. "

    Brownshirt agenda?

    Evidently they are unaware of the definition of fascism:

    An adherent of fascism or other right-wing authoritarian views
    relating to or characteristic of fascism; "fascist propaganda"

    • No, they cleverly think that fascism is liberal. Like communism. And not having enough ice cream. And rain on your wedding day.

      All of those things are liberal.

      It's a pretty trick ideology to pin down, actually. 🙂
