So many demagogues. So easily worked into a frothy drool like Pavlov's rabid dog.
"Not jackbooted gummint thugs comin' to take yer guns, or any such insurrectionist nonsense."
A stunningly bigoted caricature, and one not shared by the founders. To wit, James Madison - a federalist and proponent of a robust central authority - who makes explicitly clear in Federalist 46 the foundation, rationale, & intent of the 2nd amendment. That the citizenry (derided by Bowman's burlesque) be as well armed as the standing army doesn't even scratch the surface:
“Let a regular army, fully equal to the resources of the country, be formed; and let it be entirely at the devotion of the federal government; still it would not be going too far to say, that the State governments, with the people on their side, would be able to repel the danger. The highest number to which, according to the best computation, a standing army can be carried in any country, does not exceed one hundredth part of the whole number of souls; or one twenty-fifth part of the number able to bear arms. This proportion would not yield, in the United States, an army of more than twenty-five or thirty thousand men. To these would be opposed a militia amounting to near half a million of citizens with arms in their hands…”
In other words, an armed citizenry should vastly outnumber the State’s armed soldiers – using Madison's numbers - a factor of 16 to 1.
Having recently deployed all the guns they could lay their hands on to perpetrate "insurrectionist nonsense" against their sovereign government, Madison and his contemporaries had a visceral understanding of an overreaching state. The second amendment was ratified as perhaps the most significant bulwark against what they had just fought to eradicate.
Mike: the troll may be referring to me when it whines about being threatened. It called me a coward at one point and I invited it to test that theory at its convenience. It immediately started shrieking that I had threatened it. Liberal demagogues love to play the victim card, even when it doesn't exist. The troll clearly needs help. I hope it's able to find some.
Now that I think about it, I like Fiorina/West even better. Or West/Fiorina. Or just about anyone but Milquetoast Jeb.
What a breathtakingly malignant... well, I don't want to make it an absolute certainty that this post gets nuked, so let's just say 'rhymes with runt.'
And we absolutely can't say that scum like her contributes to a atmosphere of incivility that might lead to violence. That's solely the purview the right.
This guy is clearly on the Koch payroll. He would never make that pronouncement otherwise.
I'd reverse the order and put Fiorina on top of the ticket.
I'm sure that makes me racist.
It's Bush's fault. Because right! wing! radio! Isn't it obvious? Sheesh...
I haven't looked deeply enough into Margaret Sanger to know for sure what her views on Asians were; my suspicion is that she was none too fond. But even if she had been able to look past my slanted eyes, I'm certain my birth defect would not have passed muster, thus obliging me to choose between "sterilization or segregation."
Good to know that Shrillary is "in awe of her."
Once upon a time, there was a visionary dedicated to the advancement of the human race. She fearlessly championed the cause of improving the species, and was unafraid to call for difficult choices to be made (emphases mine):
“We want a world freer, happier, cleaner – we want a race of thoroughbreds.”
“Many, perhaps, will think it idle to go farther in demonstrating the immorality of large families, but since there is still an abundance of proof at hand, it may be offered for the sake of those who find difficulty in adjusting old-fashioned ideas to the facts. The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”
“The main objects of the Population Congress would be to apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring; to give certain dysgenic groups in our population their choice of segregation or sterilization.”
So powerful were her proclamations that she was invited to speak before the Ku Klux Klan – an invitation she enthusiastically accepted and happily recalled in her autobiography. So compelling was her mission statement, that she was praised from thousands of miles away by the German Nazi Party.
In 1939, she launched The Negro Project: “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members”
Her name is Margaret Sanger, and she founded Planned Parenthood. One might suppose it's merely a coincidence that more than 80% of Planned Parenthood clinics are in minority communities, but I don't believe in coincidence.
In the here and now, Sanger is praised by the Democrat front-runner for President: “Now, I have to tell you that it was a great privilege when I was told that I would receive this award. I admire Margaret Sanger enormously, her courage, her tenacity, her vision. Another of my great friends, Ellen Chesler, is here, who wrote a magnificent biography of Margaret Sanger called Woman of Valor. And when I think about what she did all those years ago in Brooklyn, taking on archetypes, taking on attitudes and accusations flowing from all directions, I am really in awe of her.”

Why do pro abortion liberals celebrate the life and legacy of an evil, genocidal racist?
The Lone Ranger is captured by Indians. The chief informs the Ranger that he will be executed in three days. However, the Ranger is an honorable foe so the chief will grant the Ranger 3 requests; one per day.
On the first day, the Ranger asks to speak with his horse. Silver is brought before the Ranger, who whispers into Silver's ear. Silver races away and returns that night with a gorgeous blonde on his back. The blonde dismounts and spends the night in the Ranger's tent.
On day two, the Ranger asks for Silver again. After consulting with the animal, Silver gallops away and returns that night carrying a stunning brunette, even more enticing than the blonde. She dismounts and spends the night in the Ranger's tent.
On the third and final day, the Ranger asks to speak with Silver one last time. When Silver is before him, the Ranger takes the animal's head in both hands and shouts: "For the last time - bring POSSEE!!"
