Iowa columnist pulls a Delaware Dem

DesMoines Register columnist Donald Kaul -- who, it notes, suffered a heart attack back in July -- had better simmer down about gun control, or he'll endanger his health (again). He sounds just like Delaware's own Delaware Dem of the LGOMB, who once advocated "rounding up all Republicans" and shooting them:

Declare the NRA a terrorist organization and make membership illegal. Hey! We did it to the Communist Party, and the NRA has led to the deaths of more of us than American Commies ever did. (I would also raze the organization’s headquarters, clear the rubble and salt the earth, but that’s optional.) Make ownership of unlicensed assault rifles a felony. If some people refused to give up their guns, that “prying the guns from their cold, dead hands” thing works for me.

• Then I would tie Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, our esteemed Republican leaders, to the back of a Chevy pickup truck and drag them around a parking lot until they saw the light on gun control.

Dare I say "remember this" the next time some "progressive" dolt yammers about "civil dialogue"?

Kaul also wants a repeal of the 2nd Amendment. But in order to do what he wants above, he'll need that first. (And he did put that first in his bullet point list, by the way.) And the chances of such a repeal are incredibly slim to less than none. (Indeed -- if possible, the chances would be a negative integer.)

It truly is amazing how "tolerant" "progressives" pick and choose who their enemies are. Radical Islamic fundie terrorists who spare nothing to behead those whom they despise (meaning virtually everybody) are treated with kid gloves by these "progressives" ("Be sensitive and tolerant!" we're told, "Give them constitutional rights!" etc. etc. etc.), yet, stupefyingly, these fundies are remarkably similar to people like Daul. Seriously. "Progressives" frequently compare fundies like al Qaeda and the Taliban to conservative Americans; however, when has a conservative American penned something like Daul in a mainstream periodical -- advocating torturing politicians who disagree with them on policy, and murdering those who refuse to follow [an unjust] law??

I like Glenn Reynolds' retort:

This kind of talk makes me want to buy an assault rifle. Or twelve. And really, dude, the fact that you’re angry doesn’t give you some sort of a pass from the norms of civil society. Or, if it does, be prepared to tolerate a lot of things that you’ll find intolerable. Because, you know, a lot of people are angry.

What a nut. More of that progressive "tolerance" on display. Fundamentally these radical progressives aren't any different than Islamic fundamentalists. I would say that it's hard to believe that this nut works for a mainstream newspaper, but really, that kind of stuff doesn't surprise me much anymore.
