LOOK WHAT SECOND AMENDMENT REMEDIES AND RELOADING HATH WROUGHT
By Helen L. Burleson, Doctor of Public Administration
All those candidates and public figures who have advocated resorting to Second Amendment remedies and reloading should be charged and executed for treason, high crimes and misdemeanors.
Never in my lifetime have I heard of legislators and their staff being shot and slaughtered like pigs before the advent of the Tea Party, extreme right wing Republicans, Russ Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Pastor James David Manning, Alan Keyes, Rep. Darrell Issa, Rep. Jim DeMint, Bill O’Reilly, Rep. Allen West, Sarah Palin, Rep. Mitch McConnell and most especially Sharon Angle.
Angle is quoted in an article by ABC’s Z. Byron Wolf
ABC's Z. Byron Wolf reports:
Sharron Angle, the Republican candidate for Senate trying to unseat Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid is an avowed supporter of gun rights, but she sees the 2nd Amendment as going much further than ensuring a right to bear arms.
Angle has said the Bill of Rights also authorizes “remedies” for Americans to defend themselves “when our government becomes tyrannical.”
A victory by Democrat Harry Reid, she suggested, could justify those “2nd Amendment remedies.”
Huffington Post has posted an edited clip of Angle speaking to conservative Nevada talk show host Bill Manders – it is not clear from Huffington Post or from Manders’ website when the interview occurred, where Angle says she hopes that the vote in November will be the cure for Reid and 2nd amendment remedies won’t be necessary.
Angle: I feel that the Second Amendment is the right to keep and bear arms for our citizenry. This not for someone who's in the military. This not for law enforcement. This is for us. And in fact when you read that Constitution and the founding fathers, they intended this to stop tyranny. This is for us when our government becomes tyrannical...
No let’s look at the bulls-eye targets put on 20 Congressional districts by Sarah Palin including the district of Rep. Giffords, this is also a significant part of what happened today in Arizona.
Anyone who tries to downplay, minimize and deny the very direct correlation of this vitriolic and inciteful language that led to this mass attempt to assassinate a crowd of people, which also caught in his web a nine year old child, is either ignorant of what learning and knowledge is all about or they are just plain ignorant. If words did not have consequences then we would not need schools. The reason we teach language in addition to the fact that language is how we communicate, language also shapes our thinking and our thought patterns. Fed constantly with a steady stream of covert and overt signals of violent behavior, then this is the desired outcome. Those of you who say you did not mean for your words to be interpreted are lying or else you would not say them. You know exactly what you are saying and why you are saying it. No amount of backtracking of pretending that you "misspoke" will alter the fact of your intent. When Rep. Issa says the President of the United States, Barack Obama is the most corrupt person in America, then this invites disrespect for the President as well as the office of the presidency. When we denigrate the highest office in the land, then we have become a lawless, insensitive herd of barbarians. We have been led to this just as sheep being led to the slaughter, following blindly as lemmings following the leader to the destruction of decency, dignity and eventually our democracratic republic.
Our greatest fear is not Al-Qaida from without, but from you, the lunatic fringe that is grooming and nurturing terrorists right here in the United States; and some of you doing the grooming are seated in Congress.
The blood is on your hands and there is no denying or escaping that. Just as a teacher teaches the time tables which we memorize and retain for life; just as the teacher teaches the conjugation of verbs so that we can use the right tense; just as we are given spelling lessons and definitions of words which we retain forever; and just as we are taught the Pledge of Allegiance and the Star Spangled Banner long before we know what the words mean, we never forget those things that are introduced, repeated and reinforced. That, all you neo-cons, tea baggers, mama grizzles, birthers and defamers is what learning is all about; and, you know it! You are stupid, but you are not dumb. You have sown the seeds of hatred and violence. Now some 18 or 19 innocent people are reaping what you have sown.
I have named a few, but there are many and you know who you are. Your conscience should let you know exactly what you have wrought!
