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.
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.
