Exremists

Both DougJ and I have been posting on the brick throwing in Rochester, where Congresswoman Louise Slaughter’s office and the local Democratic headquarters had windows broken. Here’s the note that was attached to the brick that went through the Democrats’ window.

Now local TV station 13-WHAM reports that Slaughter received a death threat: “Assassinate is the word they used…toward the children of lawmakers who voted yes.”

The morans who threw the brick are responding to posts on a teabagger blog called “Sipsey Street Irregulars”. The guy who runs the blog is on Social Security disability, of course, and he’s really a peacemaker:

Now I did not call for the vandalization of the windows of congresscritters, only local Demoncrat party HQs. But I can certainly understand why someone would.

I am trying to prevent civil war and communal killing, not start it, by warning those who do not understand the unintended consequences of THEIR actions.

    Blaming the victim. Nice. Reminds me both of domestic abusers and of some of the rhetoric that the South spouted just before the Civil War.

    The note should have a small line at the bottom saying:

    This violence has been fully endorsed and encouraged by the Republican Party.

    followed by the URL for donations to the RNC. This is what they are encouraging and they will once again blame this on “isolated people”. Plausible deniability exists only in their minds, they are fully complicit in encouraging acts like this. They have set the ‘tone’ with their embracing the racist teabaggers and their “patriot” movement, we are seeing the results of this unholy marriage.

    The stupid fuckwits used their own handwriting, I hope the FBI nails these motherfuckers to the wall. If they are posting about this to bathe in the glory of being a holy wingnut warrior then it’s a matter of time before the law catches up with them.

    Fucking assholes, threatening children. I hope they spend some hard time behind bars for a good long time.

    So now they’re threatening the children of anyone who voted yes? Are you shitting me?

    You know,I can take alot of crap off people but you fuck with my babies and you have NO idea what world of shit you just unleashed.

    I’ll say it again: The biggest thing that pisses me off about these wingnuts from hell is the fear and division they’ve sown. They’ve ripped apart neighborhoods and families and destroyed friendships. They deserve every shitty thing that happens to them as a result. GAH! I really wish karma worked faster. I hate them for this more than anything else.

    And this nonsense about Dems just asking for this because of what they did is exactly the same shit rapists and abusers say about their targets.

    I need to calm down,it’s my son’s 16th b-day today and no wingnut is going to ruin that for me or him. I hope the proper authorities find out who these people are and they get the maximum penalty.

    Hey, just because the brick has a recognized phrase from right wing extremists on it and is being commented on by a conservative blogger (albeit gubmit teat-sucking) activist telling people to throw bricks through some Democrats’ windows in no way justifies you libruls implying that this has something or other to do with conservatives, because these are all just SEIU / ACORN people in disguise trying to make the noble 18th century patriots of Tea look bad.

    Meaning that he’s either a knowing hypocrite or he’s scam artist or he’s really fucking unaware. My money’s on the former.
    He knows exactly what he’s doing there, just as he knows he will be responsible when somebody gets killed or maimed.
    Is what he’s doing a violation of any laws, though? Inciting violence against others across state lines using the internet. Isn’t that a violation of some law?

I was glad to see the security around the House leaders when they were walking into the House over the weekend but it’s not exactly the Secret Service either.

    As for the asshat who runs this blog…I cannot say what I am thinking, not even here. Man, I knew they would be sore losers, but this sore? I guess I am an optimist in the end because I was really really hoping they wouldn’t go there. But, they did. And so quickly!

    I finally saw the clip of Boehner shouting “Hell no you can’t!” from the night before last night (I muted him when he was having the vapors for realz), and I want to tell him and every other Republican asshat inciting the mobs what Jon Stewart said: You’re confusing tyranny with losing. It’s supposed to taste like a shit taco. I think the Republicans need to be reminded that they are the distinct minority party, and they got to be that way because of their own fuck-ups. It’s called the fucking democratic process, jackasses.

    @Monkeyfister: Wait, he says no one is talking about harming our emperor? Then what the fuck does he think assassination means?

    OK, now my blood is officially boiling. Threatening lawmaker’s children is way beyond the pale. I am sick to death of these people. I have read and heard all day these ‘conservatives’ say stuff like calling congresspersons names like the n word, the f word, babykiller, etc., is wrong of course, but the Democrats stuffed this massive takeover of the whole country down our throats illegally so people’s anger is justified, AAAAAAARGH.

    Then they get offended because people say they’re racist. Guess what – when you don’t even pause to take a breath between your perfunctory half-hearted lukewarm disapproval of what you always call a very few bad apples (when there seem to be dozens of at every demonstration they hold) and half-heartedly reciting the old talking points I suspect you don’t even believe yourself, your credibility is less than zero.

    And the part that says it IS terrorism if committed by a liberal or person of middle eastern descent, even if it doesn’t involve any of the criteria (A), (B) or (C). A Democrat sending an angry letter to the editor, for instance.

I have never seen so many people openly calling for killing the President. It’s chilling to see such vivid hatred on display, these people are seriously damaged.

    With membership waning, the Republican party can’t afford to diss a single member. No matter how foaming at the mouth mad they are, until they kill someone they are the party base. Gotta keep that big racist revival tent open for all of the angry white people!

    According to the Republicans, once they kill then they are just an “isolated incident”. Didn’t they once call themselves the party of personal responsibility?

    The Republican party is a lie.

    You know, that’s one thing that I just do NOT understand — this contention that socialized medicine destroys freedom.

    I live in a country that has had universal healthcare since before I was born.

    And yet, I am still free. I’m free to come and go as I please, to pursue (or not) whatever religion I wish. I’m free to marry whomever I wish, and to pursue whatever career I wish. I’m free to start a business, drive a car, fly a plane and drink in public.

    I’m free to speak out against my government without fear of recourse. I’m free to vote my conscience. I’m free to wear whatever I like. I’m free to raise my children in the manner that I see fit.

    The way I see it is this: I am MORE free than people living in countries without that social safety net. Having universal healthcare allows me the freedom to not have to stay in a shitty job just because it has good health insurance. It allows me the freedom to consider starting my own business, because I know that I have health insurance regardless. It allows me the freedom to make decisions regarding medical treatment for me and my family, without having to worry about how the hell I’m going to pay the bills.

    Socialized medicine has given me GREATER freedom than a lot of Americans have. It’s not a threat to freedom — it enables freedom.

    This is just the beginning of the culmination of the GOP’s policy of enticing, embracing, and inciting a bunch of Nathan Bedford Forrest wannabes.

    Also, I don’t think this brain trust has been paying attention to just who has been fighting their wars for the last couple of decades or so — I don’t think their plan would have quite the ending they are apparently hoping for. That said, they are quite clinically insane, and nothing short of a few of them acting out their fantasies, and getting boxed in the process, is going to get it sorted.

    Conservatives start with a couple of assumptions: they are hard-working and self-sufficient, and everyone else seeks to take something from them.

    You should hear the farmers here. In 2006, the federal government released information on who was a recipient of the whole host of farm subsidies. It was a searchable internet database, and we had a lot of fun with it, locally.

    Some of the staunchest “self-sufficient” local conservatives have been receiving federal payments for 2 generations. A lot of them aren’t farmers, by any stretch of the imagination. They simply inherited property that could conceivably be planted. They’re like landed gentry.

You didn’t even get the ‘rest of the story’ on him.

    See, he’s a member of Bash Back. Bash Back has protested and verbally assaulted BOTH parties. Source? Sure. That link goes to a Denver Post article which announced his conviction and also states that not only does he claim membership but the organization has claimed he belongs.

    And the Democratic Party doesn’t have representatives in congress praising and supporting Bash Back. So that equivalency you tried to create? It failed.

    It is truly sad and more than a bit frightening that this is happening here in the 21st Century. When you see the violence being reported among young kids(like the kicking and beating that happened in Broward County within the last few days), and then you look at the violence being supported by some for political reasons, Barney Frank’s statement last night on TRMS about kids learning what’s acceptable from what they see and hear on TV really takes on a whole new character.

    Cognitive dissonance just goes over some people’s heads.

    It appears the site actively promotes violence & right wing paranioa, but then makes fun of news reports calling out their violence & right wing paranioa. If you’re gonna be a revolutionary, at least be man enough to own up to it.

    Of the 30 to 50 million Americans without health insurance, how many are willingly without it? And of those, how many are Randian supermen who never get sick or need glasses for their piercing gray eyes?

But if that doesn’t happen some of these unhinged types are going to give up hope on the electoral process. Coming to terms with the fact that they are the minority and that its not THEIR country will be more than many of them can bear. That’s when we’ll really see peak wingnut.

Yes, these uber-patriots terrorists are talking about this online because they think they can hide behind the anonymity it provides.

    What is most disturbing to me is the increase in war-like rhetoric…Rightwing blogs, and Republican Congressional leaders, not to mention teabaggers, are more and more using terms like “civil war,” “taking the country back,” “second revolution,” “guns and family,” etc., to make their points.

    And, as I have said before, they are wrapping violent rhetoric around the mantle of God…taking the country back for God, family, and country…While this always has been around, excessive, violent, rhetoric is surely increasing, and providing cover for every nut to believe it is now somehow ok to through bricks, or should racist slogans, or shoot “socialists.”

    You know that this 40 year old law is just the first step on a slippery slope to a Kim Jong-il style, Orwellian dictatorship, because our democratically elected and accountable government always takes away rights but never ever, ever creates new rights. They never repeal old laws either.

    Give our democratically elected and accountable government a centimetre and they’ll take a kilometre. Pretty soon the RCMP will be putting up telescreens everywhere and prosecuting thoughtcrimes.

And if you have ever bought products from 3M, Raytheon, General Motors, or used tea bags, medical stents, brake pads, golf balls, or invested in any Fidelity funds, you have paid for the medical coverage for my children. If you and your family can’t make a decent living then those of us in the private sector are diminished, too.

The militias ran like complete, abject cowards.

    Unfortunately, yes, it will mean that one of the Teabaggers will have to rack up a large body count. It’ll lead to about three hours of teabaggers crowing joyfully about it, followed by an extended period of teabaggers keeping their doors locked, purging their e-mail lists, and throwing out all their teabag paraphernalia when they get a whiff of how angry people are about it.

It created the followers; that it may have some redeeming values (such as “makes most of its election law disclosures in a non-fraudulent manner”) does not excuse it from responsibility for the nutbags it created. Goldwater spawned this movement, and no amount of lobsterwalking on his part on a couple minor issues late in life reduces his culpability.

    I chill out on Goldwater. Blaming him for the Teabaggers gives him to much credit. The Teabaggers movement and all it’s TRUE American Heroes(r) nonsense goes back to the early 19th Century with the Know Nothings. The Know Nothings were part of the collation that became the Republican Party in the 1850s. So there were there from the beginning with the GOP.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Know_Nothing

    This sound familiar?

    The platform of the American Party called for, among other things
    Severe limits on immigration, especially from Catholic countries
    Restricting political office to native-born Americans
    Mandating a wait of 21 years before an immigrant could gain citizenship
    Restricting public school teachers to Protestants
    Mandating daily Bible readings in public schools
    Restricting the sale of liquor

    So like much the anthrax Tea Baggers are latent in the American political soil.

    “Then remind her that while most immigrants have this thing where they try to out-citizen the rest of us, and we al understand that, it’s very tiresome to those who grew up here.”

    I agree, Sooner. In fact, I’m going semi-wingnut on this one- I’m tired of these goddam foreigners coming to my country and criticizing my elected leaders like Pelosi, Frank and Obama. They can learn to like it or go back where they came from.

    and it goes for that damn godless Russkie Ayn Rand too. If she wants to come here she can help out like everybody else has. I suppose she thought the US Army in WWII was a bunch of individuals acting independently without any regard for each other. That’s just not the American way

    @SFAW:

    May I be so impolite as to point out an error in your comment? The Teabagger motto actually is:

    “Excremism in the defense of stupidity is no vice”

    All the same, they do have a problem with spelling.

    @Honus: I disagree with you on this. Part of the American dream is the ability to complain about politics. I don’t see why immigrants should be excluded from this. I am the daughter of two immigrants, and they stayed here for a variety of reasons. Both now spend most of their time in Taiwan.

    I object when the immigrants are as stupid as our homegrown teabaggers. Then, they need to educate themselves. However, they have the right to voice their objections to the political process. That’s as American as apple pie.

    There are stupid extremists on both “sides” – but many many more regular people who want this country to quit arguing and hating and vote like Americans. We expect our elected officials to represent us not their pet projects and political pressure. No one deserves death threats, especially where kids are involved, that’s stupid and wrong (amazed I even have to say it).
