"The Anti-American Manifesto." Left collectivists to "take up arms." Oh, me, oh, my, whatever shall we do?

Remember when we featured anti-American cartoonist Ted Rall?

Now here he is again, threatening another revolution.

More at HotAir.com, which includes this excerpt from Rall's book:

We are here because the U.S. is going to end soon. There’s going to be an intense, violent, probably haphazard struggle for control. It’s going to come down to us versus them. The question is: What are you going to do about it?…

Christian fundamentalists, the millennial end-of-theworlders obsessed with the Left Behind series about the End Times, neo-Nazi racists, rural black-helicopter Michigan Militia types cut from the same inbred cloth as Timothy McVeigh, allied with “mainstream” gun nuts and right-wing Republicans, have been planning, preparing, and praying for the destruction of the “Godless,” “secular” United States for decades. In the past, they formed groups like the John Birch Society and the Aryan Nations. Now the hard Right has a postmodern, decentralized non-organization organization called the Tea Party.

Right-wing organizational names change, but they amount to the same thing: the reactionary sociopolitical force—the sole force—poised to fill the vacuum when collapse occurs. The scenario outlined by Margaret Atwood’s prescient novel The Handmaid’s Tale—rednecks in the trenches, hard military men running things, minorities and liberals taken away and massacred, setting the stage for an even more extreme form of laissez-faire corporate capitalism than we’re suffering under today—is a fair guess of how a post-U.S. scenario will play out unless we prepare to turn it in another direction…

A war is coming. At stake: our lives, the planet, freedom, living. The government, the corporations, and the extreme right are prepared to coalesce into an Axis of Evil. Are you going to fight back? Will you do whatever it takes, including taking up arms?


When an anti-firearm limp wrist cartoonist threatens revolution, just exactly how afraid should we be?

Afraid of him? Not a chance. Moderately concerned about leftist organizations who have a proven track record for such things? Yes.

Yawn. Ted, like Tim can talk the talk. But can they walk the walk?

Me thinks no. The other leftists that already want blood? maybe, until they piss of the common man. Then it is game over.

But keep threatening us. That way whenever big sis points to the non-violent tea party as a threat, we can point to these two twits and say "Excuse me?". Last time I looked, tea party type were not openly advocating Marxist overthrow of the US government, race war, and murder of their political opponents. Like these two neo-Marxist twits are.

Uncle Lar said...

Keep it up bozo.
Unlike you judgemental twits on the left, the right is for the most part a tolerant bunch of folks. But even we have our limits. And you'll know when you've overstepped those. Briefly.

Legal Alien said...

hissy fit elementary school boy ranting . . . . let him do what he wants.

His biggest problem is, he has not the faintest idea who his real enemy is. Let him focus on the radical Arian nations. Let him focus on the mildly mannered Tea Party. Let him focus on the Republican gubmint troops . . . .

In the end, he is gonna get a smack in the head from the flank that he never expected and totally underestimated.

A lesson for him to learn will be - "KNOW YOUR ENEMY"

Good for him.

Please, someone, set Ted Rall on fire so that I can notpiss on him.

the more Beck exposes Soros and the other anti-American lefties the more these lefties will be agitated to do something. Wait until the lefties explode something or try to do some "event" that gets marshall law declared, this is what they want. Then big sis will step in, for control. They aren't giving up, we will have to make them. VETTOM III

The keyboard cowboy in me says "Bring it". But...

The only part that concerns me about this is that the Left has the numbers. They have some few professional agitators, union thugs, and community organizers. They have many more of the untrained "dependent class", and minor community thugs and hoods, whom they can call upon to fill their ranks.

As Mike would say, "quantity has a quality all its own". And, when their checks run out, and the Patriots are demonized as the cause, they are not going to go after Ted Rall. They are going to try and get what is mine and yours.

Democracy is inviolable...until it works against your totalitarian Marxist wet dreams. Leftists screech about "duly elected" and the revered "democratic process" until the people make a choice they don't like. Then they call for violent revolution, or just have a judge overturn the "democratic process." Like in Arizona, or OK, or CA's Prop 8, etc.

EEEEvil right-wingers now have absolute control over 20 states. I suspect state legislatures will be addressing that little problem we have with activist judges. I know Arizona plans to. And then there's the upcoming redistricting...The real power has always resided in the states.

"[R]ednecks in the trenches, hard military men running things, minorities and liberals taken away and massacred,.."

Ted Rall routinely lampoons US soldiers as rat-bastard morons. In his apocalyptic scenario, "military men running things" would likely entail vengeful military men running a bayonet through Rall's entrails.

I hope his deepest fear never comes to pass, but if he truly believes in its eventuality, it would only be prudent for him to start showing greater deference to men in uniform.

Regarding his invitation to the coming free-for-all, it will be accepted on my own terms.

Question: "When an anti-firearm limp wrist cartoonist threatens revolution, just exactly how afraid should we be?"

A vegetarian failed-painter caused a lot of damage to Europe in the 30s and 40s. His number one henchman was a bespectacled chicken breeder. His most vicious subordinate was a bookish violinist.

A half-assed French Literature and history professor offed a couple million Cambodians.

An assistant librarian killed tens of millions of Chinese.

A small-time lawyer specializing in riverboat accidents presided over the greatest slaughter of Americans ever.

The historical list of apparent zeros who racked up massive body counts isn't exactly a short one.

Mark Matis said...

For Jimmy the Saint:

THEY had their enablers. Who by and large were the same as the current Enablers for The One and his toadies. In spite of their oath of office to "...preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution..." these foul bastards spit on it, bow and scrape before their Masters, and then do WHATEVER they're told. This fine gentleman is not worth your time in the INITIAL action. Instead, one must deal with the REAL threat. Thugs with Guns. Once THEY are eliminated, then one can deal with the ilk of Ted and his merry men on a personal and appropriate basis.

Well, given Jimmy the Saint;s caveats, allow me to up the ante a bit, in the interest of fairness:
TO Rall and other brain dead communist douchebags:
When it comes down to it and you take up your rife, the sort of wide, tall end goes against your shoulder and the little round part with the round hole in it points in the other direction. Look forward to meeting you then ;o)
BTW Rall - say HI to your Mom for me; I met her many years ago. She was asking me if I had ten doillars and a carton of Virginia Slims. Her words, if I recall, were, "Hey Joe - me love you long time!"

Liberal columnist and cartoonist Ted Rall, author of the "Anti-American Manifesto," urges violence in some cases to save the country.

Rall says the left has been "very peaceful" but questions "where has that gotten us?"

For #1, he may get his wish, maybe sooner then he thinks. But I can guaran-damn-tee that he WON'T like the results, no matter who wins.
As for #2, "very peaceful"? You couldn't prove it by the actions of the SEIU and other Leftard groups. As for what it has gotten you? A lot of recognition as to your real goals, and the means that you'll go to achieve them.

I should attempt to contact this ass-hat and ask him what he's smoking, where can I buy an ounce, and how much does it cost?

If you want to see what MIGHT happen if the military ran the government, read Robert Heinlein's "Starship Troopers", sifting through the background of the society it's set in. But DON"T watch the movie -- what a travesty that was!

The man is a useful idiot at best. The people behind this know what they are doing because they have been following a plan and have been successful.

They aren't about to let this thing get out of their control, unless they miss something or can't have forces react quickly enough. Make no mistake they will be using government force against anyone who opposes them although the story told, won't be true and honest. They are Marxists and they hide in the shadows until it is safe to emerge and claim leadership.

What arms, does the OP intend that his followers will take up? Not many, I presume.

For the OP, I say, let's do it. On your terms and conditions, I'm a nice guy..

What's with the "past" thing?

I'm still a card carrying member of the John Birch Society and we've been gaining members again. If you call me an anti-communist I will agree with you. I'm so ashamed!

How did Rall ever get out of the asylum? Seriously, he is deranged. Of course, I'd love to see him pee and poop his pants the first time he hears a firearm go BANG! Ha ha ha!

Hey, Rall, any time you want to start something, there are plenty of us here "on the other side" from you who WILL finish it. So just be careful what you wish for, boy.

Just maybe we should "Honor the threat" given how peacefully leftists have behaved?
What was it 119 million plus killed by leftist governments alone in the Twentieth Century?

Well if they do take this reprehensible action then they can talk to Mr.2700fps-30cal and argue the point with him. While his vocabulary is very limited when he speaks...

Witchwood said...

Ted Rall and his ilk might be the best allies we have when it comes to bringing over large numbers of .mil troopers to our side.

I've always found it curious that leftists are invariably dependent upon others for their physical safety. Yet their most cherished targets have always been the U.S. Military and the cops (though I hold no hope for the latter seeing the light). Reviling those you depend upon is not a good survival strategy.

Interesting. Somewhere just past the obvious confusion, Mr. Rall may actually be seeing that there IS a problem. He's just got his directions all screwed up. He's either got more studying to do or is simply a totally lost bombasitic idiot waiting to be fodder...

I wonder if they're cagey enough to field their people just to have an excuse for martial law. Of course, then they'd want to confiscate everyone's guns. (It'll be "for the children")

Any bets on how many gray men and women will be watching and waiting for their opportunities if that happens?

Joel said...

Yah, not too worried about Rall becoming Maximum Leader. He'll probably rupture himself cheering ML on, though.

I'm going to go along with Jimmy the Saint and say be careful. Never underestimate the enemy, know him, study him, find his weaknesses and strengths, but never underestimate him.

J. Croft said...

Unless he dresses up like a ninja, sneak in through my bedroom window and tries to rape me, filling me with his AIDS? Uh no.

In fact not even if he dressed up like a ninja and tried to sneak in through a window-I could beat his wimpy ass with one backhand. Dude looks like he's never been in a fight in his life but most of those types give that impression.

He'd make a point if he'd get past his leftist bigotry but those types are amongst the most thickheaded cocksuckers you'll meet.

Don't talk it unless you can back it.

Snaggle-Tooth Jones said...

Hey Mr. Rall, before you can really "feel froggy", you have to finally graduate from tadpole status. You going to do that anytime soon?

AlphaWolf said...

Mr Rall is not of my community , tribe or Clan, to expect to share in the "sustinance " or "wealth" would be a very dire mistake for one , that is a thief of the fruits of others labors, best just keep moving until he finds someone that will buy into his lies. because here , he wouldnt survive the day.

Comment poster "Legal Alien" got it exactly right.

Hey, we should expect that talking anus, Mark Potok of the SPLC, to be all over this "threat" from Ted Rall, right? Any day now, right? Anyone? Bueller?

It's a safe bet that Ted Rall has never been mistaken for a man. Ditto for Potok.

Someone recently mentioned how much of a "wealth gap" there is in this country, and wouldn't it be a good idea if we leveled things out a bit.

I wish I could dig up my reply so I wouldn't have to recreate it here, but I pointed out that revolutions often happen in ways and in places you least expect them. At the end of the 14th century a revolution of sorts happened when The Black Death (bubonic plague) reduced Europe's population by 40%. Before that, there was wide wealth disparity. Afterwards, labor became a seller's market and the feudal system collapsed forthwith when peasants said "Work your farm for peanuts? Nuts to that! I'm going to the city to (fill in the blank)!"

We now see the collapse of the feudal system as "a good thing", but there was a lot of chaos attendant.

The point is that having a wide diparity in the distribution of wealth may or may NOT be a bad thing. It all depends on many other factors, most of which we won't consider until they run us over at 120mph. Will we later consider the collapse of THIS system "a good thing"? Alas, we'll all be dead by the time there's an answer.
