Are you, by any chance, an Amurrrrr-i-can fur freeeedumb?
Don't get me wrong. I'm not some drooling left-wing fanatic who enjoys bashing God and nation.
But I am put off by people shamelessly mangling the definition of freedom. I'm not the slightest bit inspired by those parading around with American Exceptionalist flags, wanting to take the United States even deeper into a consumer crazed, militaristic, right-wing dystopia.
I don't want my country laying waste to other places in some mindless Nation Building Crusade that further radicalizes others while creating legions of weeping orphans and widows, as the military-industrial complex cheers and rakes in endless profits.
Anyone know Patrick Behan? He's the one in the first photo, when he was serving our country or whatever war monger may have been running the place at the time. He's currently a member of the "Americans For Freedom" (AFF) band of merry men & women.
You can find Pat and the rest of them on Facebook. That's right. Their "American Core Values" mission statement vows to "speak out in favor for Equal Opportunity, Liberty, Freedom, Capitalism (not Corporatism), Free Markets, to have the right to be honest, save, invest and work hard so we are financially independent of the Government, without the Government sponsoring income class and religious hate against our citizens.....to speak out against Progressive Socialism / Marxism in our schools, colleges and government....."
And here's their calling card, folks. I have a sneaking suspicion it may have been recycled, with some minor changes that included a previous patriotic quote from Sen. Joe McCarthy.
[Caption] With the Patriot Act firmly in place, it is time to establish the Patriot Card as part of the gold standard for society. It already exists behind the scenes. This way it is voters ID too and helps address fraud. Integrity and Character still matter.
Impressive, oh yeah. But nothing compared to AFF Warrior Behan's fire & brimstone message right under his Rambo portrait:
"A MOST NOBEL CAUSE. BUT WE NEED TO HOLD ELECTED OFFICIALS IE: CONGRESSMEN & SENATORS ACCOUNTABLE FOR TREASON WHEN THEY PROVIDE AID & COMFORT TO OUR ENEMIES DURING A TIME OF WAR WITH THEIR REMARKS AGAINST THE UNITED STATES AND THE U.S. ARMED FORCES AS A WHOLE. 60 YEARS AGO THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN HUNG FOR THEIR CRIMES. THE HARRY RIEDS-KENNEDY-MURTHA-PELOSI AND ON AND ON. AND IN COHESION WITH THE MAJOR NETWORK MEDIA, IM TALKING ABOUT THE DEMOCRAT SOCIALIST PARTY WHO UNDERMINED THE COMMANDER IN CHIEF GEORGE W. BUSH FROM THE VERY OUTSET OF THE WAR.
HIGH CRIMES & TREASON PUNISHABLE BY DEATH. AND THEY ARE GUILTY WITH OUT QUESTION OF THESE CRIMES. UNBELIEVABLY THEY HAVE NOT BEEN TRIED. BUT STILL HOLD OFFICE. THIS COUNTRIES BRANCHES NEED TO RE-INSTATE THE U.S. CONSTITUTION THEY HAVE SO BLATENTLY IGNORED AND BROKE WITH OUT END. WE HAVE A RUNAWAY OVER STEPPING THEIR CONSTITUIONAL POWERS IN ALL THREE BRANCHES OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. AND THE LONG TERM REPUBLICAN SENATORS BETTER GROW A SPINE AND HOLD THESE TRAITORS ACCOUNTABLE. OR DONT THINK FOR A SECOND WE WONT VOTE YOU OUT EITHER AND REPLACE YOU WITH ALL TEA PARTY MEMBERS. MEMBERS OF THE U.S. CONSTITUION. RET. IN THE LINE OF DUTY."
Got that rat, Patriot Pat.
If anybody can stop those traitors from "over stepping their Constituional powers," the Tea Party & Americans For Freedom can.
And Darlene McBride, too......she'll help us rescue Lady Liberty from ruin. Sing it, Darlene!
