Right wingers, I tell ya...
« on: May 16, 2014, 12:08:02 PM »
Crazed right wingers of the tea flavor are calling on as many as 10 million unarmed “patriots” to peacefully occupy DC until “Obama, Biden, Reid, McConnell, Boehner, Pelosi, and Attorney General Holder [are] removed from office.”  Then they want the likes of Allen West and Ted Cruz to take over.

They may not realize it, but a peaceful removal of unpopular politicians is called an “election”.  And they lost the last one, hard.  So, what they want to do is get their guys in through protest and intimidation, because that is the only way to get them in, which is what we would call “undemocratic”. 

Self deluded loons.

Also supposed to be 10-30 million at Cliven Bundy's place in Nevada at the same time.

It's so funny.

This thread is about lab-grown dicks, not some mincy, old, British poof of an actor. 

Let's get back on topic, please.

Unarmed right-wingers?  There goes the NRA vote...
It doesn't make sense to let go of something you've had for so long.  But it also doesn't make sense to hold on when there's actually nothing there.

^ well, I'm sure they all have lots and lots of guns.  The website takes pains to say they should be in DC armed only with the constitution and jesus.  They have to do that otherwise they'd be arrested for sedition in two seconds, which they also say.  So there may be a wink and a nod there.

They skirt the hairy edge of treason and attack the foundations of democracy itself, yet loudly proclaim themselves "patriots". Their hypocrisy is outdone only by their idiocy.

A fantastic Rude Pundit on the "American Spring" assholes.

Quote
In Brief: When Can We Call These "Patriots" By Their Real Name: "Traitors"?

"And last but not least, there is always the Lone-Ranger approach. This is perhaps the most dangerous method and could result in complete total chaos. It would most certainly not end well for the Lone-Ranger and could actually result in bringing in the United Nations 'peace-keeping-forces'. Even an unsuccessful attempt would again result in exactly what the administration has been hoping for, chaos and Martial law." (sic to all the errors there)

This paragraph of hopeful doom comes straight from the Operation American Spring website. Yeah, you didn't see that when you were chortling at what losers these losers are. It's part of an essay on how Barack Obama has committed treason by doing all the conspiracies that freedom lovers think he's done, like the purchase of billions of rounds of ammunition, which is kind of true, except that it's in order to get the best price for the ammo and not to kill the freedom lovers.

Operation American Spring was the totally well-planned attempt to overthrow the federal government, if only the organizers hadn't been betrayed by Glenn Beck. OAS (which seems to be one guy, Harry Riley) estimated it would need "5 to 30 million people...to stop any type of resistance by rogue agencies." The overwhelming force of dozens of people who did turn out blamed the morning rain for preventing the other, well, 4.999999 million people from showing up. Needless to say, Barack Obama is still president.

The quote up there is the ultimate AOS strategy to take down DC. It comes after the failure of mass protests, Occupy Wall Street/Arab Spring tactics, and attempts to get state governments to more or less demand Congress impeach Obama and then disband (or something like that). If that's not successful, the writer says, what's left is "the Lone-Ranger approach," which, while not defined, it's probably not a stretch to say that the writer is alluding to either assassination or other kinds of violence, especially if it would result in a UN intervention and martial law, as well as a bad ending for the Lone Ranger. The death and chaos brought to the United States is "last but not least," which means it is preferable to other things.

At what point do we stop pretending these sullen losers are anything other than what they actually are: traitors. Not because they want to protest, not because they want to change the government, but because they assert that violent overthrow is not a bad plan. Their active numbers are small, but so are al-Qaeda's, but they are more of a threat to people than Islamic terrorists. Oh, we laugh at them as they wander aimlessly on their Hitler sign-bedecked Scout scooters. Aren't they just delightful, wallowing in their toilets of ignorance? Can we mock them a little more? A group of Americans gathered in DC to stage a coup. Their pathetic numbers and utter failure doesn't absolve them of their intention.

The Rude Pundit is weary of these armed, angry yokels acting as if their belief in violent revolution is patriotic.  No, they shouldn't be arrested for marching. But a visit from the FBI just for the opening paragraph sure seems justified, if only because if it were a group of Muslims posting that on the internet, there would be a whole sting operation devoted to catching them.
