Unhinged NC traitor calls for armed insurrection

Former NC home-builder lobbyist issues call to arms.

In the Declaration of Independence, our Founding Fathers observed that when government ceases to listen to the will of the people, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it and to institute new government, and that when a long train of abuses and usurpations evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government.

At the hands of successive Congresses dating to Roosevelt's New Deal, Americans have suffered a "long train of abuses and usurpations (designed) to reduce them under absolute despotism," and if it continues, Americans have the right and the duty "to throw off such government," peaceably if possible, but by force if necessary.

It's hard to know what to think about bat-shit crazy baggers like Wilms, who don't understand the basics of democracy ... but it would be unwise to ignore them entirely. And if it really is violence they're after, I'd encourage them to take a serious chill pill. America's racist minority lost one civil war already, and this time they're even more outnumbered.

Note to Department of Homeland Security: Please put this asshole on the no-fly list.


If he was quoting the Koran

he'd be in prison already.

Amazing, ain't it?

I almost hope he tries to act. Nutjobs are not the only ones who know how to shoot.

Unhinged no doubt. Check out Rush & How about FM 106?

Thnx for posting. It is more than a bit scary. Check out this link to Rush
Limbaugh's latest. Some choice quotes: "We need to defeat these bastards," he said. "We need to wipe them out. We need to chase them out of town." This is the fountain of venom that these nutjobs start at.

WRDU FM 106 is running this tripe. And the insults I heard them spewing against Rev. Barber this AM were atrocious. I'm for protesting at their HQ in Raleigh.

Why are you listening?

I sometimes wonder why those that say they are liberals or progressives listen to right-wing talk. I do it..guilty...because I want to see what the "other side" is saying. Is that why you listen? Thanks, my man.

I usually catch hell here on BlueNC when I post something I have heard on right-wing radio and such. I am not trying to trash you for your post...just wonder if you are like me and want to hear and present what the "other side" is saying.

I thought Rush was moving to Costa Rica if the reform bill passed? He should be packing! (Costa Rica or Canada - doesn't matter as both have universal health care.)




All for affect, Ivy

Politicians, radio talk show hosts, CNN commentators, Fox News presenters...they ALL lie. It is just something we all accept these days. It is something expected and we all buy the lies if they say what we want to hear and believe.

We, as a people, accept lies and distortions and rhetoric and spin whenever it goes to our beliefs. America seems to want to become yet another Europe. Hopefully, we will not head in that direction. I am a progressive democrat and know that many of the people that call themselves progressive democrats believe that we need to go toward the European model, but I disagree with that.

right wing radio is bad for the soul

I recently convinced my (liberal) younger brother to break his sick fascination with right-wing radio. He is amazed by it and thought it was the funniest thing on the airwaves. He was up to 3 hours a day commuting at one point.

I really thought it was eating away at his soul. Two weeks clean and sober he is now and he hasn't looked back :)

Also, what is it about the home builders that make the organization such a hotbed of right-wing craziness? The Realtors as well. It goes WELL beyond the traditional big-business corporate agenda with these guys.

It's a property rights fetish

They think all other rights pale in comparison to property rights and gun rights. Sad stuff ... driven by greed and too much testosterone.


Hating the government: It's not just for left-wing radicals anymore!

A liberal is someone who thinks the system is broken and needs to be fixed, whereas a radical understands it’s working the way it’s supposed to.

Civil War II

Many years ago I read a book titled Civil War II. It had a real corny cover which almost caused me to not pick it up, but it was recommended, so I indulged my friend. The author actually did a pretty good job forecasting immigration trends and hypothesizing about the political effects. Like George Orwell, the author threw a date out there, 2050. I suppose with all things decided by a few in Washington these days, the environment is ripe for heated partisanship. My only question is the next Civil War still 2050 or is it coming sooner?

Thinker isn't conservative

he's a Libertarian, that rare breed of neither-nor that operates with a Utopian view. I know, I used to be one.

Labels are for Idiots

Wow, is there a pool concerning what the Thinker's ideology is? I just found this blog and already I've been labeled "other side", a "conservative" a "libertarian", and whatever else that I just haven't found yet. What's with the need to quickly categorize someone and fit them neatly in a box? Is it to assist the intellectually deprived so they know what pre-thought thoughts to conjure up when reading a particular post? Can each and every American be lumped into a certain group so we all know who to hate or like; who to disagree or agree with without listening? Since this seems to be a need on the BlueNC blog, I'll attempt to appease the peanut gallery as best as I can. What does the Thinker think?
1) I despise group think. I don't need a group to tell me how or what to think. I enjoy critical thinking and never believe anything anyone tells me. Excuse me, but I always like to make up my own mind and have never been a big fan of pre-thought thoughts.
2) I generally distrust all organizations since they are all created by man to serve man. Don't get me wrong. I am a man, but I also recognize that I'm not perfect, and therefore recognize that neither are other men. There are some really good organizations out there that do a lot of good. But let's face it, every organization has an agenda, and quite often agendas aren't shared by the entire organization, but rather a few at the very top.
3) Lincoln was an unapologetic self avowed racist. I think racists are complete idiots. I have no use for racism, and even less use for his political party, the GOP. I could go on and on about how Republicans are useless and a bona fide threat to this country, but I'll spare all of you, since I imagine you're just as familiar as I am.
4) I recognize that political parties are here to stay, but consider politicians nothing more than a necessary evil that we all must endure and keep in check at all times. Power corrupts regardless of one's ideology. I know there are some that think all Democrats are saints, but I've never been a fan of Kool-Aid. I also recognize that most people have a bona fide need to belong to a group and "believe" wholeheartedly in the purity of that group and enjoy being told what and how to think. I just happen to not be one of those people. I am a registered Democrat. This may come to a shock to many, but not all Democrats are the same, and we certainly don't all think the same about every subject. That's OK.
5) I've never been to a Libertarian or Green Party event, or had a discussion with a Libertarian or Green Party person that I'm aware of. I don't know much about either of their platforms or have any desire to know what their platforms are. I assume they are decent people with their own ideas. So what. Welcome to America.
6) I've lost any and all confidence in our public school system to adequately prepare our children for the challenges of life. This is a topic of its own, but I know I'm not alone. I'm not sure if it is just the various public school systems I've been exposed to or if there exists somewhere a remote and lone public school that actually does a good job. I have yet to see one, hear of one, or have another parent tell they know of one. I consider public school nothing more than publicly funded day care centers where parents can drop off their kids so they can generate tax revenue for government.
7) I'm against the death penalty, period!
8) I'm against income tax, period! I think taxing one's labor is akin to slavery and/or indentured servitude. I'm against slavery.
9) I don't do drugs, but recognize that if others want to do them, so what. I consider all people sovereign to do what they desire with their own bodies. Children are the responsibility of their parents and are not old enough to make decisions with regards to their bodies.
10) I'm not a homosexual, but could care less if one desires to engage in that behavior, desires to cross dress, or desires to do whatever it is they desire to do. I don't fear difference.
11) I'm not an elitist. I don't pretend to think I have all the answers or have any need to "feel sorry" for other people just because they don't live like I do, or how I think they ought to live. I don't think poor people ought to be pittied or looked down upon. Money isn't the answer to a rewarding, productive and meaningful life. Some of the most intelligent people I've ever met have been poor and they were happy that way.
12) I consider guns, cars, baseball bats, knives, and anything else one could use to kill or harm another nothing more than inanimate objects. I don't believe inanimate objects commit crimes or are inherently evil. Gun control only works on law abiding citizens and is nothing more than an exercise in futility. If gun control worked, it would work in Mexico.
13) I'm not religious. I don't think religion is bad. Many people enjoy religion and many religions do good works. But since it is nothing more than man-made faith, I personally have no use for it. I do believe in a higher power; much higher than the human brain. I've come to this determination simply because I observe my surroundings. I don't care what others think and have no need for others to think the same way. I don't need validation of my own beliefs from another man. I do not fear those that are religious nor do they make me upset. I believe in the inalienable Rights of man. I could care less about government granted privileges or permission.
14) I don't think America is an evil empire, nor do I think we are perfect and without fault. There are plenty of events in our own history that I'm not particularly proud of. I also don't think free market capitalism is an evil system that must be destroyed. It isn't a perfect system, but it is by far the best system I've studied in the history of mankind and their experiments with the government.
15) I think Americans are generally good people and are very generous. I also believe evil people exist and should be dealt with appropriately by good people. I believe in law and believe it is the only thing that ensures the liberty of the least able among us. I don't believe that some people are more important than others. I don't believe in government protected classes. I believe all people have the same rights regardless of race, religion, creed, national origin, etc..

Now that I've thoroughly bored you all with as many things that I believe, as of today, that I could think of, please forward my classification and/or assigned group as soon as possible so we can all be done with this nonsense once and for all. Oh, and if I change my beliefs based on new information, I'll be sure to forward that to the peanut gallery in the event it changes my classification and/or assigned group. Labels are for idiots!
