Stephen Colbert: Sheriff Arpaio and Steven Seagal form 3000 man armed Posse to protect schoolson February 13, 2013 at 7:01 am
We don’t get to the nub of this matter until the end of the video. It is not just about the silly issue of America’s top fascist law enforcement personality Joe Arpaio teaming up with one of the Right-wing pretend action heroes running around inside public schools with assault rifles. The real problem is the volunteers who join up to do this kind of stuff. The Ted Nugents of the world. Those whose only concern in life is hating the government and loving their guns. Oops, I got that backwards, loving their guns and hating the government. It is their whole world, their entire life, it is everything they are, hate and weapons of death consume them. And the kicker is what we all know but are afraid to say. There is something very wrong with these kind of people. Something BAD. And whatever we want to call it, it is what is most responsible for our American violent nature. These are the same people who will be first to sign up to be volunteer to be state executioners. The face of these gun yahoos is Robert Zimmerman.
Guns don’t kill people, gun enthusiasts kill people.
Why anyone bothers listening to them is beyond me. And they have control of not only the GOP but a good share of Democrats. Well, Democrats in states where the confederate battle flag flies or no one lives. Oops. Arizona was not in the Confederacy. But Arizona did manage to refuse to celebrate Martin Luther King’s national holiday for 13 years! See, there are things other than Joe Arpiao and Jan Brewer that Arizona can be proud of.
