No one in America any longer has any right to act surprised when they read about another mob of penis-impaired thugs strapping on an arsenal in order to terrorize people who disagree with them:
'Open carry' gunslingers confront gun control momsIf a bunch of men with guns showed up outside a restaurant, it might make anyone inside a wee bit nervous. If you happened to be one of four members of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense who had gathered for lunch at that restaurant and you looked out the window and saw a group of 40 rifle-toting people staring back at you, you could be forgiven for freaking out.That is what happened at the Blue Mesa Grill in Arlington, Texas, on Saturday. The folks with the guns were a contingent representing Open Carry Texas. They were completely within their rights to be displaying their "long guns" because in the Lone Star State carrying a rifle or shotgun in public is legal. Open Carry Texas wants more, though. They want the freedom to carry any kind of gun in the open anywhere they want.Open Carry Texas has contingents in other states pushing the same agenda, and there have been several encounters between them and their nemesis, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense – a national gun control organization formed after the massacre of schoolchildren at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., in 2012. Shannon Watts, founder of the organization, told USA Today that a similar group of citizens bearing arms came to a gun control rally in Indianapolis in April."We were surrounded by armed men, including some openly carrying loaded semiautomatic rifles," Watts said. "Many of our moms had children with them. Unfortunately this is not a unique situation — it's happened in many states, including Indiana, Ohio, Oregon, Michigan and now Texas. If open carry is allowed, our rallies are often attended by armed protesters."...
What is much less well-know is that the Most Famous Reporter in the World is on the record as lavishly praising exactly this tactic:
[Glenn Greenwald] lavishly praised not just Wikileaks and Bradley Manning (who he called “probably the most heroic figure we’ve seen in at least a decade.” but also tea partyers who strike fear into the hearts of politicians by “acting very threateningly,” and “taking guns and machine guns” to their protests.
Weird how, in all the dozens and dozens and dozens of interviews the ubiquitous Mr. Greenwald has granted, not a single reporter has ever asked him a single question about his eccentric theories of radical political change.
