TexasFred

I'm sure you all get tired of hearing me go on about this particular wingnut - I'm sorry. It's just that he seems so typical of that singular breed of wingnut that bears watching pretty closely. Pursuant to that DHS report that was recently released, there has been a definite ratcheting-up of creepy rhetoric beyond just the crazy secession talk. Notice this comment that showed up today on Fred's blog:
comment number 11 by: ChicagoRay
Today at 2:41 PM (1 hour ago)

“BO wants to be just like Lincoln. I guess that means succession and civil war too.”

Maybe if we’re really lucky he’ll end up being exactly like him when all’s said ‘n done if ya knows what I mean katie……..

Meanwhile this fed up ChicIjuana resident (Tijuana +Chicago) may head to Texas if BarryPalooza gets any worse…
To his credit, Fred told "ChicagoRay" to "calm down" - I think someone has made Fred aware of how out-of-bounds some of his own overheated ravings about "the blood of patriots" has been. But these guys are ignorant, angry, and mega-armed, a very dangerous combination.

How long HAS that guy been so nucking futs anyway?

I understand that if Texas secedes, Obama will set up an airlift for Austin. Maybe you could relocate there?

Here we go again.
Imagine traveling from Europe to Texas to be part of the American Experiment, only to be handed a Confederate loyalty oath to sign. That's what happened to the Germans who settled this area. Some signed, some tried to join the Union army. Many of them were hunted down and killed.

I wonder if they realize just how NUTS they sound to most people? But, of course, most people will spout off with that kind of crap when they feel they are in like minded company.

The rhetoric I continue to hear from the wingnuts resembles mental illness. Somewhat like a deep, irrational paranoia coupled with an unjustified sense of entitlement (mostly ignorant white males)

Case in point, the Tea Party folks!

WOW!

An off topic question, but, I updated my profile with picture too. Does anyone see a picture next to my last post? I am wondering if it is because I am using Safari, or the picture size.

I see a picture or avatar next to PDiddie and Freewheel, but not me. I see the picture in my profile, but not here. Just curious if anyone knew why :-)

Thanks!

Holy Crap! I hate to leave another post, but I Googled "Chicago Ray" and it's creepy!

To our very good fortune, your picture has appeared Ricky. Thanks!

FWIW, you can leave a pithy comment over at Chicago Ray's and see it on line, at least until he tanks it. Which he will, of course. Some people just don't like being told to go fuck themselves.

AnnPW said...

Go figure, heydave! What is WRONG with these people!

Ricky Bones said...

Yep! My comments were scrubbed. Guess he likes to have an echo chamber.

Ricky Bones said...

Man! What is happening with your Governor?! I thought mine was an idiot, but this is scary for you guys - http://mediamattersaction.org/items/200904200002

AnnPW said...

Alas, Ricky, idiocy abounds everywhere in our country but, this being Texas, it abounds bigger here. Mike has a good post up about it.

These are the time I miss our late, great Molly Ivins - who coined the nickname "Gov. Goodhair" for Rick Perry - the most. She would be having a field day with the teabaggers.

Good stuff, Mike!

Hey, if any of you are on Facebook, look for me. Rick Bones, NY :-)
