Joe The Plumber On Shooting Dissenters

By  | 

Okay folks, I don’t care what party or political philosophy you subscribe to, but it’s time we all roundly shun this clearly fascist hack.

Here’s the transcript…

Back in the day, really, when people would talk about our military in a poor way, somebody would shoot ‘em. And there’d be nothing said about that, because they knew it was wrong. You don’t talk about our troops. You support our troops. Especially when our congressmen and senators sit there and say bad things in an ongoing conflict.

Let’s just forget that Wurzelbacher is giving a thumbs up to violent fascism and instead put the lie to what he’s saying happened in America. Because who reading this post remembers a time in our history when people were routinely shot for criticizing the military? Anybody?

Sure, that happened in socialist states like China and Russia (still happens in China), but this has never been the standard operating procedure in the US. I suppose one could argue that Americans have been injured or accidentally killed for protesting against military action, but not without massive public backlash. And why Joe doesn’t realize this is beyond me.

As I’ve said in the past, McCain should apologize to the country for elevating this guy as the “Everyman” when he’s anything but.
