Only Pretend Revolutionaries Are Cool
Via email, I’m alerted to some blogger who’s totally losing his/her shit because the folks on the right now sound like the folks on the left sounded four and eight years ago. Seems some freepers are getting their ammo box, civil war, blah blah, talk on. Suddenly, Free Republic has become Democratic Underground from a few years ago with talks of uprising, planning for the worst, and stocking up on sweet, sweet ammo. Irony level is pretty rich because said blogger complaining about it has that whole V for Vendetta theme going on but is calling the secret service over harsh words seen on Al Gore’s Internets. Too funny. Also, the blogger says these people are talking assassination, which they’re not.
Any way, I don’t mind so much. The Bush years turned a lot of lefties into gun nuts. In fact, the picture that Mr. Fifth Of November Poser used was prominent on a lot of lefty, pro-gun sites. Looks like the Obama years will get a lot of righties back into the gun rights movement.
And to round out teh st00pid: That gun looks illegal, too.
Really? How can you tell?
