While checking my usual daily news and opinion sources I came across a link to a forum thread on Sean Hannity’s site. They aren’t called wing nuts for nothing.
Most political junkies will recall Bill O’Reilly’s rants about posts he found on dkos that upset him. His rants became a joke among those on the Left. Well, now the Right has gone even further. This is truly scary stuff. Or absolutely hilarious, depending on your take of it.
It takes so little to set them off. The post, by a forum member named FreedomWorks wonders what would happen if a revolution came about in the U.S.A. The poster wasn’t really advocating revolution. He was simply speculating about what it would mean for this country. His belief was that it would mean total anarchy. It was the comments that followed that went off the deep end.
There was also a poll that has apparently been taken down that asked “What kind of revolution appeals most to you – Military Coup, armed rebellion, or war for secession?” I didn’t see the poll, but from this post on balloonjuice.com “Armed Rebellion” was the preferred choice of the wing nuts.
As of this writing, “Armed Rebellion” is ahead with 40%; less than one in four support a military coup. The rest (about 36%) support a war for secession. (85 votes total)
Here are a few samples from the comments:
It was conservatives that started that seceded in the civil war. They did so over taxes. The Union decided they couldn’t allow it because they needed the taxes and income from those states. You can say they were protecting their interests. Which is probably going to be what Obama says when Texas secedes.
We need that oil.
What oil the oil you claimed you could do with out?
Notice I said when not if Texas Secedes.
Liberals won’t have guns.
Conservatives will be carrying Glocks, AR-15’s and AK-47’s. You know, the stuff the ‘resident wants to ban.
I suspect the difference will be noticeable, don’t you?
Wow. You didn’t think that out, did you?
This Congress of Fools — and the man who STOLE THE ELECTION BY MASSIVE VOTER FRAUD — the USURPER — have so broken the Constitution, destroying civil liberty after civil liberty.
The entire premise of the American Revolution is that government is a CIVIL CONTRACT between those in Washington and the people on the streets. When government breaks the contract, it becomes NULL AND VOID, losing all authority over the people and having only one source of power left — BRUTE FORCE. And brute force doesn’t work when people would just as soon die as submit to still further tyranny and IMMORAL CORRUPT BRUTAL CRIMES AGAINST THE PEOPLE.
The federal government has become the very essence of ABUSIVE AND DESTRUCTIVE TYRANNY, just as vicious and destructive as what King George and his own Parliament of Fools ever pulled.
Pelosi and Obama and Reid and both Clintons and Kennedy HAVE BROKEN THE CONTRACT between the people and government, HAVE DESTROYED THE CONSTITUTION WITH THEIR OWN TYRANNY< THEIR OWN CRIMINALITY< THEIR OWN REFUSAL TO LISTEN TO THE REST OF THE NATION that liberals hate and seek to destroy.
There comes a point at which people are forced to either roll over and be slaughtered or fight back and hope like hell they survive the slaughter — and when people begin to see that there is no other option left except to fight back or be slaughtered, you’ve got a revolution on your hands.
This last election MARKED BY FRAUD AND CHEATING AND LYING AND EVERY ELECTION CRIME IN THE BOOK — and the past two months where disgusting criminal TYRANTS have passed one VICIOUSLY DESTRUCTIVE AND IMMORAL AND DISUSTINGLY ABUSIVE BILL AFTER ANOTHER is exactly that: the last straw.
We submit and die — or we fight back and maybe die — because those are the only two options the DEMONS IN WASHINGTON give us.
There is literally NO MORE ROOM TO YIELD on our side of the aisle. The Left has stretched the rope and stretched and stretched it again and again and again.
The DEMOCRATS must back off and back off FAST — and start cleaning up their OWN CRIMES — because the Democrat Party is now the equivalent of far worse than the British Parliament was ever thought to be — more like Saddam Hussein and the Baathists of Iraq by the day: just as brutal, just as cruel, just as insane, just as selfish and vicious and IMMORAL as that bastard ever got.
They have done exactly the same TREACHERIES as Stalin, as Castro, as Chavez, as the vicious animals who have destroyed Africa in one endless war after another, as the monsters of the Roman empire who destroyed that nation, too.
NO MORE ROOM TO COMPROMISE EXISTS.
We have tolerated “Taxation Without Representation” — and now the CRIME LORDS have bankrupted the nation, wallowing in luxuries bought with money they STOLE from our poorest citizens, living in luxury while the poor struggle to put TAXED GASOLINE in their cars, TAXED comforts in their kids bellies, TAXED clothes on their kids backs — and lost jobs because TAXES bankrupted their employers — now they’re in bankruptcy themselves — while the IMMORAL THUGS IN CONGRESS continue to spend spend spend spend spend FOR **** THAT HELPS ONLY THE LEFT and leaves middle America gasping for air.
Are you getting scared yet or are you laughing so hard you have tears in your eyes? Hang on, there’s more.
We certainly need to organize and prepare for it even create a temporary form of government at this point. We need to feel out our friends and enemies even see about what aid we can gain from other foreign powers that may very well work with us. Such as Britain and Canada and other European nations that have already had there fill of Obama.
And we start looking for that society in our extended family and our neighbors. Who is trustworthy? Who will stand against tyranny and the “laws of the land” that are actually not legal? Will this neighbor or that? Or will this neighbor stand with the laws of the land thinking they are doing the right thing?
We are in a serious flux now. Maybe not next week or next month, but there is no doubt that things are devolving faster and faster.
We can only actually prepare ourselves and pray that we are lead to like minded souls who believe as we do and live in effort and purpose to regain the ideals of our nation.
Had enough? I know I have.
Using the logic of O’Reilly and Hannity, by not censoring these comments on his web site Sean Hannity has now advocated rebellion against the legitimate government of the United States. If they are right about that then he, Hannity, could be tried and executed for the crime of treason.
This is the party of Palin, Limbaugh, Coulter, Hannity, and Joe the Plumber. Welcome to Cuckoo Land.
Please excuse me while I go take a long hot shower.
