A few days ago I did a post on the tweeters who were threatening to cause riots if Willard Romney wins the presidential election. Many of the dumb twits a-tweetin’ stated that they would riot out of fear that Romney would take away their welfare, food stamps and EBT cards. (Rather than being angry about those means for greater dependence, they should be expressing anger toward Romney, Obama, Congress, and other buffoonish bureaucrats for stealing away the tweeters’ opportunities with the bureaucrats’ jobs-killing policies of minimum wage, union-protectionism mandates, and other wage and price controls, but that’s for a different discussion.)
But now we hear, according to Infowars, that the dumb twits are tweeting threats not only to riot if Romney wins, but they are threatening to assassinate Romney! And we’re not hearing a word about this from either the mainstream media, the Secret Service, the FBI or the Romney campaign and Romney himself!
However, given how limp-wristed a mealy-mouthed jellyfish Romney is, someone who doesn’t believe in the individual’s right of self defense and doesn’t do a very good job in defending himself when merely criticized, I’m not surprised that he hasn’t publicly insisted that these tweeters be arrested and charged with threatening his life.
And I’m saying that not because he’s anyone special — God know he isn’t — but no one has a right to directly threaten the life of another individual, no matter who is targeted. We should all be equal under the law. At least, that’s how it should be. (But we know that isn’t the case, with special extra laws protecting certain people based on their race, or their occupations, such as President, cop, etc., and all the special laws that treat certain people as special over others and given extra privileges, such as with “civil rights” laws etc. But that’s for a different discussion.)
Hmmm. Maybe there was some validity in this article about government austerity and cutting off EBT cards followed by rioting, as I noted in my article about whether our rulers want civil unrest to occur.
Just a few weeks ago, I heard that in Connecticut the two major parties for U.S. Senate to replace the warmongering ignoramus Joe Lieberman, Democrat Chris Murphy and Republican Linda McMahon, were neck-and-neck. Now it seems Murphy is pulling away and he’s up maybe 5 or 6 points.
In the U.S. House of Reprobates, Murphy voted to extend the ghastly and Soviet-inspired Patriot Act. And he voted for the hideous, corporatist prelude to U.S. Soviet Medicine, the “Affordable Care Act.” And he supports “Cap-n-Trade.” The American Spectator has more.
And I wrote this about degenerate Republican Linda McMahaon during the last election cycle:
You can call me an “elitist” if you want, but I find McMahon’s many years with the World Wrestling Federation, now called World Wrestling Entertainment, somewhat distressing. I don’t look down my nose at those kinds of entertainment that obviously deliver what many Americans seem to want and are willing to pay a lot of money for. But some aspects of it are a little disturbing, such as “simulated sex and rape scenes” and feigning a coma in a wheelchair, although the steroids scandal doesn’t seem to bother me, as it doesn’t bother me in the sports area.
The twits out in Tweeter-land, and the twits in Congress or running for U.S. Senate. We’re doomed.
