“Second American Revolution on the horizon?”

“Sheriff David Clarke Jr. reacts to gun control push.”


Somebody should email this to Professor Brian Kiteley. Allow him to intimate that Sheriff David Clarke Jr is but another teabagging racist in that offhand way so peculiar to progressive academics taking care with their words. I need a good laugh today.

  1. Let’s just send him the transcript, get his reaction, and then reveal the speaker. I wanna see him try to weasel out of his words.

    “Well, I was mistaken when I said he was a racist teabagger, because I didn’t realize he’s black, and blacks can’t be racist, because they’re black. Which is totally a racist thing for me to say, but it’s not really racist, because it’s only RAAAAACISM! when you say something bad about blacks, and I’m saying something good. Q.E.D.

    P.S. I thought I told you to leave me alone, you big meanie.”

  2. Sheriff Clarke is one of the few people in Milwaukee County who make any sense.
    And he is known to ride a horse, and wear a hat like the guy on Justified.

  3. Maybe you should call it the gun control putsch.

  4. I’ll repeat some of what I wrote on another thread.

    Should I take comfort in the fact that the government isn’t very good at gun grabbing?

    Two veteran detectives were gunned down by a suspected sex offender when they went to question him in Santa Cruz, CA yesterday. He had a prior sex offense with conviction that included a weapons charge in Oregon. All reports I read said they knew he owned three hand guns.

  5. Should I take comfort in the fact that the government isn’t very good at gun grabbing?

    No.

    They might not execute a gun grab with Nazi-like efficiency, but they’ll definitely eff it up in other ways: arresting granny for having her grandson’s crayon drawing of a gun on her fridge, for example.

    They may be inept, but they’re dangerously so.

  6. eek, make examples of the few you can catch.

    There has been a mini crime wave here in Santa Cruz. There is talk of putting pressure on local gun stores (what few there are here). Hah, bet they are pretty much sold out already.

  7. I know Rangel has been agitating for the draft for years now, but could this the birth of Obama’s “civilian national security force”? Paranoid minds wanna know.

    “There has been speculation regarding President Obama’s “citizen army”. In 2008, President Obama made statements regarding a “civilian national security force”. Since that day, many have been curious as to what President Obama had in mind when he made that statement. Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY13) may have just given a bit of insight into what was meant when he introduced H.R. 748 last week.”

    http://www.examiner.com/article/h-r-748-would-require-all-persons-the-us-18-25-to-perform-national-service

    ……..

    H.R. 748: To require all persons in the United States between the ages of 18 and 25 to perform national service, either as a member of the …

    … uniformed services or as civilian service in a Federal, State, or local government program or with a community-based agency or community-based entity, to authorize the induction of persons in the uniformed services during wartime to meet end-strength requirements of the uniformed services, to provide for the registration of women under the Military Selective Service Act, and for other purposes.

  8. a revolution would be very exciting

    an American Spring is just the ticket I think and guess what?

    spring is nigh!

    it’s already here in Southern California I can tell cause of how the sunbeams linger longer

  9. I like the cut of Sheriff Clarke’s jib.

  10. Those young people performing national service will need some shirts to help identify them to the rest of us. I think brown would be a good color for them.

  11. Meanwhile, here in Texas, legislators are proposing a bill to make Texas Independence Day a tax holiday for the purchase of guns and ammo.

  12. Disgusting that you republican t baggers find this funny or relevant to the automatic bushmasters that republicans kids are shooting up schools with.

    from the comments here

    …food for thought

  13. a revolution would be very exciting

    Actually, I can think of better ways to spend my retirement.

  14. There has been a mini crime wave here in Santa Cruz. There is talk of putting pressure on local gun stores.

    Lemme guess — it’s not the sort of pressure demanding that gun shops drop their prices and beef up their inventory so that the law-abiding citizens of Santa Cruz can do for themselves what their overpaid boys in blue can’t manage to do on their behalf.

    Never mind that it’s the only sort of pressure that would make sense.

  15. @squid, how did you guess?

  16. Not to harp on Santa Cruz, but it has a long history of heinous crimes. Said crimes usually involving the mentally ill and/or drug-addled folks who live there who are chasing that hippie utopian dream, man.

  17. been a few years leigh since the days of our famous mass murderers (I can think of three off top of my head, they go back over 30 years). But, we still do get our weird ones. Two years ago a co-worker shot her husband and herself after some squabble.

  18. “Actually, I can think of better ways to spend my retirement.”

    Maybe going out defending my Second Amendment rights is a better option than facing a “death panel” later on.

  19. i was thinking of just a quick madcap revolution where the fascists are run out of town and the townspeople have a big party to celebrate

    there will be cake

    and bunting

    lots of bunting

  20. Maybe going out defending my Second Amendment rights is a better option than facing a “death panel” later on.

    Sure. And I do hope for a radical departure from the path we are on now. I am just not particularly “excited” about it, and hope it can be achieved without a lot of shooting.

  21. beemoe,

    Being realistic about my physical fitness and combat ability, I don’ t think there will be a lot of shooting on my part anyow.

  22. Being realistic about my physical fitness and combat ability, I don’ t think there will be a lot of shooting on my part anyow.

    Yes, that’s a much-shared concern I’m guessing.

    You’ve caused me to look up the origin of a certain phrase…

    Prince. I think to steal cream indeed, for thy theft hath already made thee butter. But tell me, Jack, whose fellows are these that come after?

    Fal. Mine, Hal, mine.

    Prince. I did never see such pitiful rascals.

    Fal. Tut, tut; good enough to toss; food for powder, food for powder; they’ll fill a pit as well as better: tush, man, mortal men, mortal men.
