I thought I’d wander over to Free Republic, a far right site that specializes in hyperbole, vitriol, macho posturing, and poor spelling. I was sure I would find some choice comments today, in honor of the Supreme Court’s ruling, and I was not disappointed.
I can’t decide what I like best—their sudden, collective expertise in Constitutional law? Their bellowing threats against the government, couched vaguely enough to keep the FBI at bay? Their high-falutin’ references to beloved historical figures such as John Paul Jones, James Madison, and Sarah Palin? Ooh, it’s just all so good!
I preserved a few of their best comments for the sake of posterity:
From flightdeck: “Anybody who does not vote against Obama is now officially an enemy of the United States.”
"I loathe and literally hate my government.
There is no reason to hang the flag of the Red, White and Blue.
It’s Gadsen from now on.”
From 1L: “I can take care of myself and my loved ones, and frankly, that’s ALL I am going to do. The rest of America can go straight to hell.”
From Lazamataz: “The fact that a mandate has been ruled Constitutional means that America is no longer worth fighting for.” and “If George Washington was here, he’d either muster troops for another revolution, or seeing the vast tech superiority possessed by the tyrants, find another country to settle.”
From freekitty:”How does it feel to murder your fellow Americans SC? You are disgusting fascists pigs. You just signed into law the death panels. May God have mercy on your souls because you are going to the hottest parts of hell for eternity.”
From RoseofTexas: “I’m so upset I can’t stop crying!! MY GOD WE NEED A revolution to stop the madness!!!!! Please someone out there make this STOP!!!”
From Girlene: “Chief Justice Roberts is a traitor to the US Constitution, as are the other 4 who voted to uphold this mandate”
From Sensei Ern: “The America I was promised as a kid was just revoked. The America my father fought for was just destroyed.”
"I’ve got four things to say:
1. I will die before I comply.
2. F*ck you John Roberts, you traitor.
3. Maw and Paw Bush, take your evil seed children and go to Hell.
4. Barack Obama is from Hell.”
From moose07: “Sarah Palin@SarahPalinUSA, Obama lied to the American people. Again. He said it wasn’t a tax. Obama lies; freedom dies.”
From mowowie: “Thank god i have no children, If i did have kids i’d feel seriously guilty having forced them into this strange new world.”
From Amagi: “To preserve our Founding principles we must resist and repeal legislatively militarily.”
"Though, I think I got most of the grief out of my system by now… it was when I was told by a SFC to "shut up, private" when remarking, after the `08 election and before inauguration, when I stated that if Obama was not qualified it was the Army’s duty, via their oath to the Constitution, to oust him. It was at that point that I realized, really realized, how worthless an "oath" really is. got out when the enlistment expired and haven’t looked back.
The Constitution is meaningless if there is no penalty for violating it”
Another gem from ChrisW:
"I’m a slave because of his idiot appointment.
I don’t give a **** if you like him, and I don’t give a **** if it bothers you that I don’t.
George W. Bush and his traitorous chief justice can go to Hell.”
Aaand just as an honorable mention…best name I saw on Free Republic today…Glock the Vote.
