  •  Fantasize they do (7+ / 0-)

    A couple of months ago a fellow I sit next to at work (who has spent at least $100,000 on guns and ammo in the last couple years) was gleefully talking about this short story posted at some right-wing blog in which  EBT cards stop working in big cities and suddenly all the brown people start raping and pillaging.   In response, the heroic gun owners such as himself go about killing as many of these - I won't use the words the story used - people as they could and save Western Civilization in the process.

    A Paulite friend of mine read it and started exclaiming, "This could really happen, this is how it will happen!"  Without hearing more than a couple sentences of description I told him, "This is Turner Diary fan fiction race war porn and nothing more."  He nodded and didn't say another word after I pointed that out.

    The guy I mentioned at the beginning of this post is constantly posting about EBT and food stamps on Facebook as if people getting a little help buying food (and increasing overall demand in the economy, thus keeping people in food production and retail employed) is the absolute worst thing happening in the world.   He doesn't worry me at all but the shit he fills his head with is coming from some really wacked out places.
