Vice President Biden is asking the president to bypass Congress and use executive privilege, executive order to ban assault rifles and to impose stricter gun control. Fuck that.

I’m telling you that if that happens, it’s going to spark a civil war, and I’ll be glad to fire the first shot. I’m not putting up with it. You shouldn’t put up with it. And I need all you patriots to start thinking about what you’re going to do, load your damn mags, make sure your rifle’s clean, pack a backpack with some food in it and get ready to fight.

I’m not fucking putting up with this. I’m not letting my country be ruled by a dictator. I’m not letting anybody take my guns! If it goes one inch further, I’m going to start killing people.

Tactical Response CEO James Yeager in a video posted to YouTube (deleted) and Facebook on Wednesday.

Tactical Response’s tagline is “We train good people to kill bad people.” Yeager is a former SWAT officer and trains civilians in tactical methods. He also owns a tactical supply shop for “military, police, and armed citizens.” Yeager writes on his company’s Facebook page, “In 2011, I was on the Discovery Channel show ‘One Man Army’ and was featured on the National Geographic documentary ‘Snipers Inc’.”

In other words, he’s a bit scarier than your average unhinged gun fanboy who likes to play pretend. Yeager actually has the know how to follow through on his threat and the materials to do so.

Perhaps it’s time for Tennessee State Police to pay him a polite visit, especially since he says he’s going to kill people if the gun control debate goes “one inch further.”

On the executive order, that’s fear mongering by Matt Drudge and Alex Jones – Congress would have to enact any ban.

Oh, and Mr. Yeager, this is exactly the best argument you could have given for gun control. Thank you.

I’m a black Jew at a Nazi-Klan rally, and there are some power-abusing corrupt monsters in our federal government that despise me because I have the audacity to speak the truth…

Ted Nugent, justifying remarks which have earned him an investigation from the Secret Service.

Dear Ted Nugent,

Things you are not:

  • Black
  • A Jew

Things you could be:

  • At a Nazi rally
  • At a Klan rally

Things you don’t have:

  • The truth
  • Anything close to it

Things you do have:

  • Audacity
  • People who despise you
  • Lots and lots of angry white male privilege

That should clear up some of the confusion, you unbelievable asshole. 

Cheers!

- Meg

After a video of [Elizabeth] Warren talking about the deficit and the social contract went viral last week (see above), Rush Limbaugh, the Fiscal Times and Rich Lowrey all spent time attacking her. Now, Lowrey has decided to spend another column going after her, and places like the Daily Caller and Reason have piled on. There is also this gem from right-wing blog Wizbang:
Picture text: When I hear the word “contract” I reach for my revolver think of two unique definitions — formally, a legally binding mutual agreement made between two or more parties, or idiomatically, an attempt to hire an assassin to kill one or more of your enemies.

I have been half-joking on my radio show for months that, with the way political discourse has degenerated, Mission of Burma’s song “That’s When I Reach For My Revolver” will one day be the Tea Party anthem. Here’s Moby’s version:

Check out the lyrics here. This shit isn’t funny. We just had Andrew Breitbart, sweaty and pacing, fire up a Tea Party crowd by fantasizing about killing liberals. Breitbart said, “They can only win a rhetorical and propaganda war. They cannot win. We outnumber them in this country, and we have the guns. I’m not kidding.” Read the rest of Michael Laprarie’s entry here.
And now, Elizabeth Warren dares to run for U.S. Senate and challenges Scott Brown (someone they don’t even like) and the Wall Street status quo. I’m not going to sit here and pretend that liberal are always civil and conservatives uncivil. Can we simply stop with the veiled (and not-so-veiled) references to killing people? It’s getting really old.
