Enflamatory? Yup, but you'll see where I'm going with this pretty quickly.
At what point do the people tell the Redstate Editor to go to hell? At what point do we get off the couch, march down to Erick Erickson's house, pull him outside, and beat him to a bloody pulp for being an idiot?
At some point soon, it will happen. It’ll be over an innocuous issue. But the rage is building. It’s not a partisan issue. There is bipartisan angst at liars and inciters to violance made worse by dumb posts like this and unintended consequences like The Tennessee Church Shooting.
Were I at home, I’d be cleaning my gun right about now waiting to protect my property from the coming riots or the Redstate Strike Force coming to try to start violence.
I need a Get Offa My Lawn sticker
Because I am roiling mad. Thanks for an enraging but fairly cathartic post, Mike S. Hey call me a nut - I really don’t give a d@mn at this point - but IMHO these Redstate Posters all need to be beaten to a bloody pulp FOR STARTERS. We used to say there would never be violent protests and revolution again in this country. It may not be over small conveniences but there will be a straw that breaks the camel’s back, and violence is looking more plausible and way more necessary.
So I'm sure by now you know what I was doing. Here's Erick's real graf that I edited to open my diary.
Washington State has turned its residents into a group of drug runners — crossing state lines to buy dish washer detergent with phosphate.
At what point do the people tell the politicians to go to hell? At what point do they get off the couch, march down to their state legislator’s house, pull him outside, and beat him to a bloody pulp for being an idiot?
I know Erick is a fucking coward, even with his "Strike Force," and would never actually carry this out. But I wonder what his reaction would be if I really wrote the stuff that I edited from his post.
