It is time to take a firm stand to denounce those who advocate "Second Amendment Solution" terrorism
A recent poll shows that 29% of Americans, including 44% of Republicans, 18% of Democrats and 27% of independents support an armed rebellion in the near future.
This may be the single most disturbing poll I have seen in a long time, and I have seen plenty of disturbing polls.
Let me be clear: those who are among the 18% of Democrats who believe this shit are not on my side. They can call themselves Democrats all they want but they are among the same level of scum as the teabaggers who cheer on Ted Nugent.
I have long been a strong supporter of non-violent resistance against the government and I have been in the streets many times over the last few years engaging in non-violent resistance. Non-violent resistance is a wonderful thing, but violent resistance is terrorism and all those who speak of "Second Amendment Solutions" are making it clear to us that they are at the very least terrorist sympathizers.
I know most of the scum bags who talk about turning their guns against "government tyranny" are all talk and won't actually carry out the murder they endorse, but it is a possible that a few of those nut jobs will and people will die. The blood of those people will be on the hands of all of the 29% who endorsed this idea.
Free speech is good, if people see government tyranny I highly encourage them to stand up against using any non-violent means at their disposal. Once the guns come out however the person wielding those guns becomes a murderous thug that needs to be condemned by every last person.
I sure as hell don't want the teabaggers deciding we are facing government tyranny and believing it is acceptable to use their guns against those of us they believe are contributing to that tyranny. I don't want anyone on my side to take up arms against the government either and anyone who even encourages such a thing is someone who I will loudly condemn them no matter their stances on other issues.
There is absolutely no way in hell that an armed revolt could ever succeed against the largest and most technologically advanced military the world has ever seen, but that doesn't mean people would not die in large numbers. And what happens then? All these people who were "fighting for our freedom" will cause the biggest crackdown on civil liberties this nation has ever seen, because don't think for a second the government will grant you more freedoms if you start murdering their people.
Those who call for taking up arms to "protect our freedoms" are in reality a threat to the freedoms of all of us. I just hope all of the 29% of Americans who say they support such a stupid and sickening idea are just idiots that say stupid shit without any intent of carrying it out, but if even a few of those 29% are actually serious and do carry out what they say they want to do all the people who encouraged this shit will have to share in the blame.
It was before my time. It just doesn't seem like the place that would accept or support that.
People were angry at the theft of 2000 and the over lordship of the pResident back then. A common phrase was Democracy died on Dec 12, 2000 and there were fears of a permanent republican majority (as the repubs called it).
Certainly a different mood on DU.
As I said in the OP, I condemn anyone who promotes violence as a solution to political issues. I am all for non-violent civil disobedience, but those who promote violence are scum. The reason I made this post is because there is a thread in the gungeon right now with people promoting armed revolution against the government. I condemn all of those who promote terrorism, and make no mistake about it armed revolution is terrorism.

They're mostly Republicans.
Whoever advocates armed rebellion against the US is a seditionist at best and a traitor at worst.
let me know and I'll fart in their general direction. Goodnight.
about "I want my country back" because their President is black. Same Glenn Beck/Alex Jones listening gun-humping Neanderthals who think universal health care is a form of tyranny.
If they were to try anything, the loyal armed services would quickly send them to hell where they belong.
We have been too compliant when people threaten to SHOOT PEOPLE and get away with it. We know the GOP does not want restraint; they cheered when Gabby got shot; and probably look forward to the day when firign squads are used instead of "lone wolves."
that is what the loudspeaker was saying when jed and matty went to see their dad at the reeducation camp in the first red dawn movie.
i thought it was pretty funny. and strangely on point.
