Chump Norris And The Road To Anti-Government Violence
Former respected martial artist Chump Norris has come out with another anti-government screed, which you can read HERE.
In it, he basicly says everything that the Republicans caused in the past eight years is actually the result of President Obama who has been in office for some ten months.
To prove this, he uses selective quotes from Adams, Jefferson and other founding fathers. I suggest Norris, who would like to see Texas drop out of the United States, might have thought about quoting the founders when the country was lied into the Iraq war, secretly and illegally wiretapped, and the banking system was de-regulated to the point where our entire economic system collapsed. All under Republican supervision.
Now that 70% of the country has spoken and shifted the political landscape by electing Obama, the lunatic fringe on the far-right is approaching violence, with the so-called "conservatives" fomenting civil war.
Things are getting serious
Census worker found hanged; 'fed' scrawled on body
A U.S. Census worker found hanging from a tree near a Kentucky cemetery had the word "fed" scrawled on his chest, a law enforcement official said Wednesday, and the FBI is investigating whether he was a victim of anti-government sentiment.
The law enforcement official, who was not authorized to discuss the case and requested anonymity, did not say what type of instrument was used to write the word on the chest of Bill Sparkman, a 51-year-old part-time Census field worker and teacher. He was found Sept. 12 in a remote patch of the Daniel Boone National Forest in rural southeast Kentucky.
Lucindia Scurry-Johnson, assistant director of the Census Bureau's southern office in Charlotte, N.C., said law enforcement officers have told the agency the matter is "an apparent homicide" but nothing else.
Come on people; we know everyone is angry and worried about the future of the country. Unfortunately, with clowns like Chump Norris and Glen Beck (and the rest of his Fox "News?" circus), that mis-placed anger is not looking at what caused this country's problems, it's being directed at Obama who is trying to clean up the mess. There is no shortage of racist rage bubbling just below the surface, something we should have seen coming.
But hey, this is 2009, not 1909. I thought we'd grown up a little bit.
