Ok - the Freepers have definitely gone off the deep end.
They've now started fantasizing about killing Wisconsin protesters.

Hyperbole? "Nut-picking"?

You be the judge.

(just in case you thought that Freepers are advocating serving wine to the protesters).

    Grapeshot is a type of anti-personnel ammunition used in naval cannons. It was similar to its land cousin canister shot, although its slugs were much larger to punch through the hull of ships. Instead of solid shot, a mass of loosely packed metal slugs is loaded into a canvas bag. Grapeshot can also be improvised from chainlinks, shards of glass, rocks, etc. When assembled, the balls resemble a cluster of grapes (hence the name). On firing, the balls spread out from the muzzle at high velocity, giving an effect similar to a shotgun, but scaled up to cannon size.
    13 Vendémiaire - Napoleon, then a brigadier general during the later stages of the French Revolution, famously dispersed a Royalist mob on the streets of Paris with a "whiff of grapeshot" on 5 October 1795.
    At the Battle of Vinegar Hill the British used grape shot to kill hundreds of women and children who were fleeing the battlefield.

So - Freepers are advocating firing grapeshot into the protesters to kill and maim hundreds of women, children, teachers, firefighters, and police.
Also, they hate terrorists.

    Just one savage baton swing on one of these nitwit’s heads will send them all into a general panic for the doors. Granted, it will make the cleanup a bit harder as there’s nothing like the sound of hardwood - swung violently - hitting a skull (thwwock!) to loosen the bowels of all those liberals in there.

Are these people born with a missing chromosome? Did all of their parents drop them on thier heads? I can just see them in childood, burning ants with magnifying glasses, pulling wings off flies, then graduating to killing small animals, then larger ones (being careful to hide the remains, because somewhere deep inside they know what they like to do is horribly wrong), then finally - a whiff of the grape for people they don't like.
Freeper prayers for bloodshed go unanswered as the thread continues.
Watch their psycopathic dreams dashed in real time after the thrilling-days-of-yesteryear jump..

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  When obedience is the only commandment, (7+ / 0-)

    the disobedient are disposable.  In a sense, obedience negates the concept of human rights.  There can be no right to life or the expression of human properties (speech, mobility, association, reproduction) when obedience is the prerequisite.
    Obedience is the antithesis of liberty.  To insist on liberty is to negate obedience.  So, if one is committed to the proposition that society depends on obedience

    "Obedience to the law is freedom"

    then liberty is in conflict with social organization.

    It all depends on one's preconceived notions or assumptions.
    The thing about obedience is that it involves a voluntary enchainment.  Why are men everywhere in chains?  Because they prefer the security of obedience to the risks of liberty.  Moreover, those who have enchained themselves, perceive liberty itself, as well as its proponents, as a threat that needs to be eliminated.  
    Liberals can "live and let live."  The subservient perceive liberty as a threat and liberals as people to be wiped out.  If people are not willing to be slaves, then they deserve to be killed.  
    The "triumph of the will" has different aspects, depending on the perspective from which it is considered.

    connect cause and effect is faulty typically assign their own characteristics and behaviors to other people.  It may be an organic disability in the brain.

    The ability to recognize the connection between cause and effect is not a prerequisite for survival.  Since most organisms don't have it, there's no reason for it to be necessary to humans either.  In other words, the cognitive functions of the brain may well be an extra or add-on that's selectively expressed, like musical talent or mathematical calculation.  Perhaps cause and effect analysis is a processing function that's just missing in a lot of people.  The accumulation of information is, obviously, a different function entirely.  It's the difference between storage and arrangement and distribution.

      That's the official psychological term. They project what they don't like about themselves and cannot accept onto "The Other", who then becomes their scapegoat.

        the observer.  However, the behavior may not be intentional.  It may be a consequence of how their brains are wired or mis-wired.  Well, mis-wired from our perspective. For all we know, not recognizing cause and effect, like not having a sense of time or direction, may be the norm, not the exception.
        That people who have little sense of self and seem fixated on others are being selected for public office may not be their fault.  It may be a consequence of ciphers being considered useful, or it may be that such people are not successful at doing anything that requires an awareness of process.

      but in most countries (not all, sadly - look at Somalia and Uganda) society has developed to the point where it blunts them.

      Sadly, here "society" has been turned into a swear word by the corporatists.

    What a refreshingly inspiring diary.  Someone was talking about the "Madison Declaration", like a declaration of independence.  It reminds me that there have been countless such declarations in the past.  Such efforts are truly consciousness-raising.  Now let's keep going with the boycotts and even a general strike- a giant, 24-hour flash-mob.

    Just be prepared to see how long autocrat fangs really are.

    I remember reading an interesting article come years ago, where the author posited that around one third of humanity is "soulless", i.e., lacking in all empathy and sympathy with their fellow beings.

    This being so, I think you've found a motherlode of them.
