More honesty, this time from a Professor Christopher Swindell. But he starts his own honest heartcry with a lie.

Here it is. The NRA advocates armed rebellion against the duly elected government of the United States of America.

No, it doesn’t. The NRA advocates fidelity to the U.S. Constitution.

That’s treason, and it’s worthy of the firing squad.

If he was a professor of history, he might know that even Benedict Arnold didn’t get the firing squad.

The B.S. needs a serious gut check. We are not a tin pot banana republic where machine gun toting rebel groups storm the palace and depose the dictator.

We put the president in the White House. To support the new NRA president’s agenda of arming the populace for confrontation with the government is bloody treason. And many invite it gladly as if the African-American president we voted for is somehow infringing on their Constitutional rights.

Normally, I am a peaceable man, but in this case, I am willing to answer the call to defend the country. From them.

How about enlisting in the military, boss? I did it. So can you!

To turn the song lyric they so love to quote back on them, “We’ll put a boot in your —, it’s the American way.”

Except it won’t be a boot. It’ll be an M1A Abrams tank, supported by an F22 Raptor squadron with Hellfire missiles. Try treason on for size. See how that suits. And their assault arsenal and RPGs won’t do them any good.

The piece speaks eloquently for itself. But the real kicker comes at the end:

Swindell is a professor of journalism.

Of course he is. Even though he can barely write.

Turns out he’s a professor of journalism at Marshall University. He believes that the Tea Party hates America, because it objects to Obama’s debt policies which are wrecking the country. He published his personal email address on this article about the Boston bombing, to which he reacted as a typical liberal reacts.

His students generally love him, even though they see that he’s “full of himself,” thinks his course is more demanding than it really is, and one suspects that Mr. Swindell may be a communist. One student, noting Swindell’s tendency to “spray when he talks,” suggests sitting several feet away from him at all times. Several states away is really the optimum distance.

Keep in mind, Professor Swindell advocates mass murder against the NRA in the article above. So watch this video manifesto of him begging everyone else to “just get along” and challenge yourself to keep a straight face. The irony is about as subtle as Swindell’s opinion of the NRA.

I mean, this part is just hilarious:

So to start, I too will stop. I’ll stop with the accusations and the name-calling. And I’ll start listening for good ideas from any political stripe.

That was in 2011. In 2013, he’s pushing for civil war to murder millions of law-abiding Americans who don’t happen to wear his political stripe.

Reminds me of Bill Ayers wanting to kill 25-30 million people, in order to shepherd in the New Order.

Always such tough talk, but such a person will rely on others to do his fighting and murdering for him. Of course, he has no idea of what he speaks. He parrots these words he hears, and just throws them all together to sound tough.

Be careful what you wish for, Professor. Most of the military will not be on your side, because 3/4 of the military registered voters vote Republican. No, you will need the domestic police to put down the insurrection, and a lot of them won't do it, either. You are in error if you think they will blindly obey the government's orders, that you can use them against an insurrection. Has it occurred to you that many of those same people are NRA members?

What an idiot, and I am sure he thinks himself terribly smart.

Bracketing that the NRA has no such agenda, someone needs to tell him (maybe a law professor?) that that's insurrection, not treason.

That pesky Constitution thing defines treason as aid and comfort to the enemy in time of war, which is plainly not what that is.

These words mean things!

Well, maybe not if you're a journalist.

I spent the last 12 years working on the F-22, and can state definitively that the Raptor does not, never has, and is not capable of carrying or firing Hellfire missiles.

Not that it would matter to this nimrod...

Typical liberal. He wants the military to do his "dirty work." He doesn't realize that the overwhelming majority of the military rank and file will be on the "other" side.

I would suggest that Swindell, if he's truly committed to destroy the NRA, then he should grow a pair and TRY to lead the effort - personally.

Come on, professor, come get them........

There may be a violent Civil war but it won't be between the NRA and the Obamites.

Bring it, Chrissy. The irony of a lib threatening to shoot people who are more heavily armed than the average police department is rich.

We also tend to be a lot better trained with those arms.

If there is a new Civil War, it will not be violent. The parts of America that produce food, energy, raw materials, manufactured goods, weapons, and troops - Red States - will simply stop withholding payroll taxes and nullify federal law.

The entire US active duty end strength is where it was in Dec 1941 - 1.4 million. The US military will not participate in unity under Obama. His reelection was in large part about suppressing their vote. National Guards report to the governors. Want to guess whether there are more military members from Alabama or New York state. It's not close.

Fascists like Swindell are one of the reasone we need to maintain our arms. Remember, Liberalism is a cult of hate and violence leading to Totalitarianism.

He will be shocked to discover that swords are no longer used and that the pen is not mightier than the firearm.

Relating to Civil War II:
--------------------------------

A civil war would be the worst possible thing to happen to America. We can potentially stop any nuclear strikes from foreign countries and are protected from enemies by two oceans. Invading the USA is a tactical nightmare. We could literally nuke an incoming fleet from either coast.

However, a civil war is not the same. This country is and has been approximately 50% 'Left' and 'Right'. The death toll would make all previous wars look enviable. There would be no 'winner'. What would be left is a wasteland the likes of a post apocalyptic world. America would become a 3rd world country that even China wouldn't want.

My Point:
--------------

Americans NEED to get along. It is impossible for one side to dominate or try to impose its views on everyone. Discussion, common ground and compromises must be made on both sides. As an Independent, I see many things that both left and right agree on. However, current politics is to be as stubborn and as partisan as possible. Instead of discussion and willingness to work together, we have ignorance, shallow talking points and rhetoric.

Actually, we've had lots of compromise over the years but most of it seems to have been compromise by the right for the sake of just getting along. And look at where that has gotten us. We've moved steadily leftward for decades and now, when it is getting ridiculous with Obama's massive deficits and relentless spending, even trying to slow the charge to the fiscal cliff gets the right demonized for racism and all sorts of other ridiculous claims.

When is the Left ever going to compromise with the Right? Because if that doesn't happen soon, we may well find ourselves in a second Civil War, one that is likely to make the first one look like a Sunday School picnic.

And yet that Civil War may be coming. If the Democrats are allowed to steal the 2016 election, we will probably be in for a generation of Leftist Repression. The Restoration will, as you suggest, make the last Civil War look like a Sunday picnic.

Crack and comic books comprise the entire reference library for the new age "educator" and "journalist".
Nuclear annihilation will be just another light show to capture with your cell phone and send to all your friends on "facebook.

Good God; Are We screwed. The drug addicted officials of today are SOOOOO much more advanced, intelligent, and authoritative, than they were in the 1970's.
