these people are nuts …
stone cold, fucking crazy …
whenever someone asks how much of the current hysteria from the gun fetishists is based on crazy-ass racism and general hallucinatory fantasies as to the imminent doom of lily-white America, point them to this, and stand back:
(Gun Owners of America president Larry Pratt) predicted that President Obama may begin confiscating guns in order to provoke a violent response to justify further oppression, which host Stan Solomon feared would lead to the imprisonment of hundreds of thousands of people.
Pratt once again insisted that Obama is acting like King George III, a sentiment with which Solomon concurred, saying, “That will happen quickly and they will wipe those people out to set an example.”
But Solomon wasn’t finished: “I believe they will put together a racial force to go against an opposite race resistance, basically a black force to go against a white resistance, and then they will claim anyone resisting the black force are doing it because they are racist.”
Howard agreed: “You may be right because he has been sowing the seeds of racial hatred; we were healing quite well as a nation on racial issues until Obama came along and now we have a lot of racial discord.”
as one poster put it:
First off, nice touch on the Mr. Rogers sweaters, that really adds a capping touch of surrealism to the whole batshit enterprise. Second off, if you believe President Obama is planning to put together an army of black people to hunt down white people and take their guns away, or whatever the hell that was, then Oh My God you are the pitch-perfect example of someone who should never, under any circumstances, be allowed to own a gun, or a knife, or even a sharp pencil. It’s felt markers for you or nothing, buddy. All of these people are about one dark-skinned mailman away from declaring that the race wars are upon us, climbing to the top of their very own custom-built wood pallet clock towers, and shooting anything that moves.
