Recently, Joe the Plumber penned a really stupid letter regarding “virgin killer” Elliot Rodger’s bloody rampage at UCSB that left six dead and thirteen injured. Joe feigned compassion for the victims and their families, while explaining that:
“your dead kids don’t trump my Constitutional rights.”
Pretty horrible, right?
Joe’s had some pretty awful ideas recently. In October, Joe reposted an article that suggested America needs a white Republican President. Of course, Joe believes guns have value in our society–for “hunting down politicians.”
Joe, who vehemently preaches against unions while being a proud member of one, is, in short, a vile human being.
In a screenshot posted by Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, it seems that there exists an even more awful person than Mitt Romney’s anti-Obama mascot. Jeremiah Nierras, a pro-gun “activist,” had this to say about children killed by gun violence.
What we have here is a mix between Joe the Plumber and Jerad Miller, who did turn his guns on the government alongside his wife, leaving two Las Vegas police officers dead with Gadsden flags draped over their bodies as well as one “Good Guy With a Gun™.” [The NRA has offered no explanation as to why the GGWAG was unable to stop these two “bad guys with guns.”]
This is a person who should not, under any circumstances, be allowed near a box of sparklers, let alone a gun. Not only does he openly state that he does not care about the repercussions of lax gun legislation, but he is willing to “turn [his] guns on the government and [people who support realistic and reasonable gun regulation].”
This posting is reminiscent of some of those made by Jerad Miller before he and Amanda unleashed their rage–the first shot of the “revolution,” according to the couple.
Since the Millers declared the revolution “on,” a BLM agent has been attacked by a gun-wielding “sovereign citizen,” a pro-gun, anti-Obama Christian extremist shot up his school, and a drunk man with an assault rifle threatened violent revolution (hilarious, but indicative of a growing sentiment of dissent among the right-wing).
The government’s lack of intervention at Bundy Ranch has emboldened the extreme right. They really do believe a revolution is coming. The KKK, militias, and other extremist groups are training their “troops” for battle. Unfortunately, in an effort to protect free speech we are allowing extremists to openly make threats, network, and plan attacks.
If a war is coming, these folks intend to start it — and likely will, if we allow it. They will be decimated in the process, but they seem pretty serious about an attempted uprising. Stay tuned…
