I mean, what do these people think, they're going to take on the gov't? Shoot and kill people? To what end? It's a freeper fantasy that they could win but then what? Are they going to step up and govern the nation? And what about those of us who oppose their views? Are we meant to then live under their tyranny? I mean, what are these people thinking? It seems like the NRA should be supplying mental health care to all of its members because these people are batshit crazy.
They're all such lemmings completely pumped up with fear by Fox, Limbaugh, Savage and that ilk. If you look at some of the 10s of 1,000s of FB posts since Obama's announcement, these people just repeat the same lies over and over - completely unaware that they're in an echo chamber. And the way they all pose as if they are constitutional scholars is just plainly ridiculous because all they're doing is parroting a single, ill-informed fear mongering source they heard on the radio or on some blog and they just repeat it ad nauseum.
Whatever happened to civility? Where does all this bloodlust come from, they think the solution to everything is shoot them dead. Do they think they should be immune from prosecution? I mean, there are a lot of people sounding their war cry - what, they're going to kill people?
They already completely dehumanise anyone who holds an opposing view because, of course, they same people pumping them with fear have also demonised the opposition into non-existent caricatures - how often do these people tell you who you are and what you think, how dumb you are, etc.?
Next time there's a shooting I wish instead of all the faux concern and faux grief, the POTUS (whomever it is) would just say, "That's the price we pay for our 2nd Ammendment, folks. Now move on, there's nothing to see here."
I mean, these people act as if they've never heard of an Executive Order before. And if you point out that Bush signed 290 of them (to Obama's current 149, I think) they're like, "Why are you still taking about Bush? He's not the President anymore!" as if our history isn't somehow cumulative. And of course it didn't stop them from blaming Jimmy Carter for the economic collapse or Clinton for 9/11.
This whole Obama/Hitler/Children meme - I mean, please, Bush was in a classroom full of children on 9/11, if they want to go there. But no, that's different.
I'm so glad I don't actually live in the States anymore, it must be maddening.
