JTP: “Why hasn’t he been strung up?”

Crossposted at daily kos

He’s baaaaaaaaaaacccckkkk.

and dumber and more dangerous than ever.

    Americans for Prosperity, one of the wingnut welfare outfits behind the Great Teabagging, held an event in Wausau, Wisconsin yesterday, keynoted by the man who best personifies the Teabagging movement.


    Referring to Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Conn., more than once, Wurzelbacher asked, “Why hasn’t he been strung up?”


    Murder. Sam Wurzlebacher is calling for murder.

     I mean, it’s not like just saying “Someone should stop Dr. Tiller the baby killer.” over and over could possibly lead to someone actually trying to do that, right?

    And they used violence to do it? Perish the thought.

    But then, this isn’t even comparable. Even Bill O’Reilly never flat out stated “Why hasn’t someone strung up Dr. Tiller yet?”

    But Sam Wurzlebacher did.

    Just imagine if Kos, Jon Stewart or some Democratic Politician said something like this about a conservative? The howls would reach to the moon!

   Or even if some random blogger wrote something like “Why hasn’t Joe The Plumber been hit in the face with a banana cream pie yet?”

   Not as though I want to see this happen or endorse throwing pies at idiots, but I am thinking it loudly.

   As evidenced by Keith Olbermann’s recent DK diary, what is said in public can be used against you whether you intended for that to be or not, and it can be taken to the extreme by anyone in hearing distance.

   But, as everything else, it seems there is a different set of rules if you’re a Conservative Republican.

    As if the lynching allusion doesn’t inspire other comparisons, remember that Sam Wurzelbacher is the caricature of the Joe Sixpack that is supposed to symbolize the conservative picture of a real Uhmerican Patriot.

    Let that sink in for a minute.

    “Why hasn’t he been strung up yet?”

    There is no voice in the Conservative world who will call this what it is, but nor will I attempt to. I have my opinions of what this sort of speech is intended to achieve. You should draw your own conclusion.

    Murder is what is being implied here. Lynching.

    So, I say, this is where the line is. Sam Wurzlebacher crossed it in his attempt to dance to the tune of his teabagging Corporate sponsors.

    And now his fifteen minutes should come to a close.

    I am letting DHS and whoever else will listen know that this is unacceptable.

    If you think I over-react here, just take the statement and use your imagination a little more.

   “Why hasn’t (BLANK) been strung up yet?”

   Blank can be substituted for President Obama or anyone else, whether an individual or a group, so “Why haven’t the Democrats been strung up yet, or the blacks or the gays or the liberals or the socialists, it just requires a little imagination and no empathy at all.

    And it should be totally unacceptable.

    After speaking, Wurzelbacher signed autographs and posed for pictures with the crowd. In a brief interview Thursday, he said a recent Time magazine report that he had left the Republican Party was false.


    We know, Sam, you never really left at all.

    We couldn’t recognize you in the new executioners robe, otherwise, it’s like you have always been there all along.

    But now your fifteen minutes really needs to come to an end, a peaceful, just end.

    He’s Fighting for the American Dream



  2. buy this right wing crap are the fucking stupidest (is that a word?), ignorant (I know that is!), people in this country.  They have no idea what they are talking about and why they support the Republicans.  They are the true sheeple.  Now, the Democrats clearly have many sheeple, but I’ll give them an edge in the intelligence department.  

  3. GOP’ers were calling for Napolitano’s resignation after the DHS report was released about the possible threat posed by right wing extremists.  Several veterans groups demanded (and got) an apology from her.  Apparently the right wing extremists who kill anyone not exactly like themselves are all troubled random “lone wolves”, whereas if anyone other than those of the right-wing persuasion commit similar acts, they are “terrorists”, involved in deep, complex, conspiracies.  

    Dont’ch know, JTP is just asserting his First Amendment rights to talk like a crazy person,  unless he personally acts on what he says at which time, he would be just another of those troubled “lone wolves” having nothing to do with the other right wing fanatics he’s been hanging out with. Of course if he incites others to do so, he’s in no way responsible, according to RW rules.  

    Meanwhile, he’ll probably soon be on the Faux Propaganda Network to promote a new book and to repeat his comments and share a good laugh about it all with a few of his favorite pals on their daily indoctrination programs shows.
