A few days ago, James Patrick, a resident of Florida, (big surprise!) made what the police deemed a credible threat on Facebook, saying that he would shoot and kill members of Congress who did not vote in favor of Kavanaugh. The police raided his home and arrested him. He is in jail and his bail has been set at $500, 000 dollars. Patrick wrote on his Facebook page, “I can’t do this myself! I need more conservatives going into liberals’ homes at night and killing them in their sleep!” Patrick is quite the charmer, isn’t he?
To be fair, James Patrick hasn’t been named as the person who threatened Senator Flake, but he is a symptom of a major problem in this country- why do white conservatives think they can only settle disputes with threats of violence and death?
I mean, are their egos so fragile that they need to stick a gun in someone’s face to make them more masculine? Is the Viagra not kicking in properly? (I hate to mention it, fellas, but your little blue pills are only designed to help you get it up, not make it bigger. Two inches is still two inches!) Seriously, are their debating skills lacking to the point of gurgling and burping? If I had to give an answer to those questions, it would probably be yes.
To be honest, I don’t have a high opinion of conservatives. They’re either nonsensical, hypocritical, delusional, or just plain dumb. But that does not mean I would pull a gun out and shoot them in the face. The farthest I would go is maybe a bitch slap or a good old-fashioned kick in the ass. God knows they need it.
They keep whining about how they hate intellectuals and cultural ‘elites’- you wanna know why? Because we have this thing they don’t: INTELLIGENCE. Have you ever had a conversation with a Trump supporter? It’s like talking to a two-year-old with the vocabulary of twelve-year-old. Do you want to confuse a Trump supporter? Speak in sentences that involve more than two syllables.
I had this one incident a few years ago where I was making fun of a republican idiot on Twitter, and instead of continuing to debate me, he threatened to track down my wife and rape her. I wrote back, “I’m divorced, but my ex-wife is a Trump supporter, so go right ahead! You want her phone number?”
I was joking of course, not that I found the threat any less offensive or disturbing. Who does stuff like that? It was bad enough when it was just the Teabaggers, but with the emergence of Trump, it’s gotten completely out of hand.
And the Right has the nerve to say liberals are violent? Really? Then who are the ones doing all the violent shootings? I don’t see Republicans falling all over themselves protesting for new gun control laws.
If you want to see the difference between the two sides, keep in mind that the women’s march involved two million people around the world and no violence was committed. When a bunch of white nationalists gathered, one woman was killed and another black man was severely beaten. Case closed.
The Republicans like to claim that they are the party of Jesus, but they don’t stand for any of the things Jesus stood for.
Disagreements are inevitable, but you can’t win an argument with a gun in your hand. If you think otherwise, then you’ve already lost.
