Update on the coup attempt against the President

“If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.” ~ Barack Hussein Obama
The coup proceeds apace on three fronts: abuse of the FBI, abuse of the courts, abuse of high-power rifles, and abuse of the first amendment.

Today, abuse of the first amendment and high-powered rifles.
  • Thursday evening, CBS's Scott Pelley, who officially ended his tenure as the network's Evening News anchor the following evening, told viewers that "It's time to ask whether the attack on the United States Congress Wednesday was foreseeable, predictable and, to some degree, self-inflicted."
  • MSNBC host Joy Ann Reid had the gall to blame Republicans for divisive rhetoric just a day after she took cheap shots at shooting victim Rep. Steve Scalise. On her show Saturday, Reid alleged that Scalise, who has undergone multiple surgeries after being shot at the GOP baseball practice, may be a racist and a homophobe.
  • Manny Schewitz, a co-founder of Modern Liberals: I have no sympathy for Steve Scalise. This is a man who voted against healthcare funding for 9/11 first responders, takes donations from the NRA, and is part of the GOP plan to gut Obamacare. The man who shot him had no business owning a gun of any kind, much less the assault rifle he was armed with that day. Yet Scalise has opposed any sort of gun regulations, because he cares more about the wishes of the NRA and the fanatics he represents, instead of the thousands of Americans who are killed every year by gun violence.
If you don't like someone's political views, they're saying, it's okay to shoot them with an SKS, a Soviet semi-automatic carbine chambered for the 7.62×39mm round, as a Bernie Sanders supported did on the baseball field. This is the same rifle used to kill five policemen in Dallas, so it must be okay. Is it also okay, as these people are dong, to shout "Fire!" in a crowded theater?

“The truth is that the only rational choice we have, the only real response we can make, is to stand up and fight back." ~ Bernie Sanders
