"If you're trying to change minds and influence people it's probably not a good idea to say that virtually all elected Democrats are liars, but what the hell."

A rose for Cynthia
Earlier in the week we linked to this Las Vegas Review story about Oath keepers [Depending on your perspective, the Oath Keepers are either strident defenders of liberty or dangerous peddlers of paranoia.]
Sigh. Every member publication of the Democrat Media Complex has
at least one staffer whose job it is to look at everything through the
racial prism. That this makes them a racist by definition is an
irony that escapes them. The Atlanta Constitution fills their
("left-wing" would be a redundancy) race-baiter slot with Cynthia
Tucker. Here she is today.
paranoia and racism of the unhinged fringe ought to be taken seriously,
and it seems the Secret Service is doing exactly that. According to a
report in the Boston Globe, President Obama has drawn an unprecedented
number of threats against his life, overwhelming the ability of the
Secret Service to check out all the lunatics to see how serious they
are. <snip> ... there are moments when the paranoia of the wingnuts is almost
comical. A new group called Oath Keepers has pledged to keep the feds
from violating the Second Amendment by confiscating weapons.
Formed in March, they are ex-military and police who
repledge themselves to defend the Constitution, even if it means
disobeying orders. If the U.S. government ordered law enforcement
agencies to violate Second Amendment rights by disarming the people,
Oath Keepers will not obey.
“The whole point of Oath Keepers is to stop a dictatorship from ever
happening here,” says founding father Stewart Rhodes, an ex-Army
paratrooper and Yale-trained lawyer. “My focus is on the guys with the
guns, because they can’t do it without them.
And then Cynthia slips on the slope
people believe what they want. That’s what makes this a great country.
But, really, folk, the government has nuclear weapons and F-16s. If by
some convoluted Manchurian takeover [say, by a Marxist Zero with no experience and no history?], the feds wanted a dictatorship,
would your hunting rifles stop them?
