The Attack of the Angry Left

NEWS FLASH!

On a right-wing talk show on Thursday, David Keene, the president of the National Rifle Association, blamed President Obama and the left for what he says have been hundreds of death threats made against him and his family.   SOURCE

Tea for Tuesday

Don’t underestimate the wrath of the Left when irked 

This may be all a big to do about nothing though.  It’s an oxymoron to believe that  ideologues on the left have deadly assault weapons, unlike the ideologues on the right who routinely send death threats to the president, so we can only presume that they will use less lethal means to carry out any ill-will on Mr.  Keene.

What can we expect from the limp-wristed, milquetoast liberals?   Will they utilize the tea spoons they stir their organic green tea with to cull his eyeballs out?  Or catch him off guard outside a Starbuck’s and scald him with a hot semi-sweet mocha latte?  He ought to be careful too as he pulls out of his driveway.  They may be lying in wait in their beamer or a preserved 1968 Volkswagen bus from their trips to the Monterrey and Woodstock festivals to T-bone him once he backs into the street.

An anonymous source for the NRA president said one angry advocate for gun support claimed she would suffocate him with her silk embroidered collector pillow she purchased at a gift shop while vacationing in Maui last summer.  Another came from a Beverly Hills zip code who said they would attempt to slip an overdose of pure Columbian cocaine in his coffee if only their gardener/dealer hadn’t been busted and deported back to Guatemala.

But there is a legitimate fear that there are some leftist extremists out there who may have developed some mental disorders recently and purchased one of them AR-15s in the mad rush with the gun nuts to get them before Obama bans them.

Keene isn’t too worried about this prospect the anonymous source tells me.  The existing laws to prevent such a purchase are likely to prevent this from happening.  However, if that turns out to be the case, he had better hope the gun supplier for that person was out of extended magazines with a 30-round capacity.  There is little guarantee he’ll be able to outmaneuver such a rapid fire attack.   Unless of course he has updated his certified self-defense NRA training that has been affectionately referred to as the “Dirty Harry response”

  1. After seeing your link to it, I listened to the interview with Mr. Keene. (There went 11 minutes of my life I’ll never get back.) In all fairness, Mr. Keene stated that he isn’t particularly concerned with the death threats because those threatening him aren’t likely to have guns.

    • “Mr. Keene stated that he isn’t particularly concerned with the death threats because those threatening him aren’t likely to have guns.”

      And yet he felt compelled to raise the issue on this right-wing talk show. Based on this I concur that alleged “death threats” from the left give little rise for concern but it does raise the ire of gun advocates and THAT is what I think Mr. Keene’s goal was. To pump that emotional response from extremists to obfuscate the need for sensible measures to address gun violence in this country.

      • I’ll give you that. I also think that most people who listen to that radio show and others like it do so to bolster their existing opinions, not to have them challenged.
