In the ever changing wingnut welfare funded tag team event that is America's Most Poisonous Pundit a few names dominate the ring. Rush "Jabber The Gut" Limbaugh wobbles around like some bile spewing Sumo wrestler. Twitchy Michelle Malkin occasionally jumps in with her trademark Venomous Lamprey Of Doom finishing move. Then we get Anne Coulter stalking around the ropes like an anorexic Black Widow while she stabs opponents in the back. And always, from the sidelines, Simple Sarah The Quitter From Wassilla hee haws and brays like a brokeback donkey who has swallowed a three dollar fiddle, while doin' a little winksy folksy commentatin'.

Occasionally though a pretender to the throne runs on from the sidelines. Krayzee Chief Kessler mounts the ropes and calls the crowd a pack of commie dicksuckers. War Crimes West blunders through while hunting for commies and nazis under every seat, using his fat square head to butt opposition in the guts. Craven Cliven Bundy chucks a dead calf at the crowd, then ducks for cover behind his posse of psycho gun nut pals. Duckwit Daddy Robinson mugs to the camera, waves his bronze age book of fairy tales and does a little FakeBilly Whitesplainin' while quack quacking away on his toot toy.

But most recently the spotlight has fallen upon The Original Pretender, everyone's favorite fake fathead and pretend plumber.....screaming into the ring like Leeroy Jenkins on crack.......heeeres JOE!

Now, when faced with the sight of a distraught father whose son has just been murdered by this months spree killer psycho, any normal compassionate human being would, at the least, take pause and save whatever poisonous nonsense they had in their head for another day. Only a complete narcissistic attention hungry hate filled scumbag, the likes of which usually wave God Hates Fags signs at funeral processions and attends Westboro Baptist, or is a troofer shitstick who steals memorial signs commemorating the dead kids of a previous school mass shooting then makes taunt calls to grieving parents of the kids, would actually stick the boot in on that most recent grieving parent.

.....And of course Joe The Pretend Plumber Wurzelbacher, whose credentials as a Spree Shooter Supporting Scumbag were established when he said the Holocaust was a result of Jews not owning guns and the Armenian Genocide was only possible because they didnt have guns either, so gun control = genocide. Low Blow Joe, seeing the grieving parent beg for some form of sane gun control so other parents could be saved from the life shattering loss he was suffering, took to the keyboard and typed:

"As harsh as this sounds—your dead kids don't trump my Constitutional rights ... We still have the Right to Bear Arms ... Any feelings you have toward my rights being taken away from me, lose those."
And the US media goes apeshit. "How could he?" they scream. "How terrible!" they cry.

Why?

Just for once you see......HE IS TELLING THE TRUTH

You may hate the messenger, (and believe me as a member of the rational part of the human race I do), but you can not hate the message.

Its the damn truth, and if that smarts, it effing well should.

You have had presidents, politicians, pastors, priests, pensioners and god knows how many police and first responders shot down. Mothers, fathers, sons, and daughters blown away in hails of lead. Citizens of every age, creed and color turned to corpses in a cloud of cordite.

Shooters have turned clock towers, cinemas, shopping malls, churches, temples, fairs, town hall meetings, rallies, campuses, schools, post offices, parks, museums and your homes and streets into killing grounds and free fire zones.

Australia had Port Arthur. New Zealand had Aramoana. Britain had Dunblane and Hungerford. And action was taken.

The USA has similar mass shootings on almost a monthly basis. And nothing.... because

"....your dead kids don't trump my Constitutional rights"

According to polling there are around 80% of you Americans who support some form of reasonable (by your standards anyway) gun control. Unlike Britain and Australia there are no gun bans on the table. Comprehensive checks, gun registration, licensing, ammo and mag restrictions. Not a lot to ask.

There are elections coming up. I suggest its time you started putting your representatives on the spot, and explaining in the most forceful terms considered acceptable that "....your dead kids don't trump my Constitutional rights" is no longer acceptable, and if they want your vote, they do as you say not what Wayne La Pierre says.

But in the meantime, and until you do, stop throwing crap at Joe The Pretend Plumber..... because he is only telling the damn truth, no matter how unpalatable it is.

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.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:

  •  problem with these nuts is that they seem to think (13+ / 0-)

    all constitutional rights are absolute but, in fact, constitutional rights are abridged or amended for individuals on a regular basis.  For example, commit a felony and there goes your 2nd Amendment right to have a firearm.  In some states, it is that there cannot even be a gun in the same household with a felon, if I understand correctly.

    Commit a felony and lose your voting rights.

    Child molesters are barred from living within certain distances of certain establishments.

    There are restrictions on people's rights on quite a few topics.  For example, with guns, OC TX is now asserting they have an absolute right to open carry in any public place they choose to, including private property, such as restaurants.  They are threatening boycotts against those establishments which prohibit open carry of long guns on their premises.  OC TX seems to have no problem with requiring shoes and shirts but are all wrought up with prohibiting guns as another public health issue.

    Joe finds common cause with these Open Carry advocates as OC Tx now plans to show up at the GOP Convention fully strapped, though municipal statutes forbid open carry in the convention center.  They are also suing various municipalities which have banned open carry on the premise that state law is absolutely binding on municipalities and those cities have no right to more stringent gun laws than the state allows.  Expect this one to show up before SCOTUS.

    Also, a "truther" moron stole a monument to the Sandy Hook victims because he was trying to highlight that the massacre never took place and the kids killed were just figments made up for the media.

    Who are these people and why are they coming out of the woodwork.  We have already seen Joe as reporter for PJTV in Israel scurrying for cover when he thought he heard rockets overhead.  ITMT, Joe managed to insult the Israelis by suggesting they man up and  John Wayne the heck out of Gaza.

    Of course, Joe is wrong.  No right is ultimately absolute, as we have seen time and again when one group's rights collide  with another group's rights.  We also have a series of amendments and an amendment process to ensure that the Constitution is not graven in stone but instead is a living breathing document.  Finally we have literally libraries of various courts' decisions in interpreting the Constitution and related laws.  The world is not nearly as simply as Joe and his merry cohorts would like to insist

  •  Last week Glenn Beck did a tasteless "skit" about (8+ / 0-)

    rape.  After considerable backlash from critics, the next day Glenn proceeded to unveil the information that his father had been raped repeatedly, by different predators, throughout his life.  Why did he do that?  Because, in his words, "Don't you ever preach to me about what I can say and can't say about rape!".  You see, for Glenn, his personal experience gives him a unique perspective on the topic and along with it, a unique level of authority from which to speak on it.

    My point is, when is Joe the Plumber going to come out and say "I'm sorry Glenn, but your repeatedly raped father doesn't trump my First Amendment rights to openly criticize you."

    Our dead, injured and poor people from cradle to grave don't trump any of their Conservative Rights to be free of government meddling in society.

  •  The right to 'life, liberty, and the pursuit of (0+ / 0-)

    happiness' isn't in the Constitution, per se, but should have been included.  We have seen the right-to-life and libertarian groups make a mockery of the first two, and those who go all in to the pursuit of happiness are oblivious to reality.  Nothing exceeds like excess.

    Real plastic here; none of that new synthetic stuff made from chicken feathers. By the morning of 9/12/2001 the people of NYC had won the War on Terror.
