Has the left finally gone Nuclear? Or is this just the new Normal. What did this guy had for breakfast, fillet of bourdon drenched le' Nuke? So, anyways there's 3 things that irk me to no end. Illegal border crossing, Government Corruption and Gun Control for Law abiding Citizens who -are- concerned with Illegal gangs and gun runners.



Rep. Eric Swalwell (D., Calif.) suggested the United States government would use nuclear weapons in a theoretical war against gun rights supporters who refuse to give up assault weapons. The Democratic congressman’s comments were prompted by a Twitter user’s response to an article about Swalwell’s call to force gun owners to relinquish assault weapons. The piece recounts how Swalwell “has proposed outlawing ‘military-style semiautomatic assault weapons’ and forcing existing owners to sell their weapons or face prosecution.” –Washington Free Beacon



John Cardillo, tweeted a warning about how Democrats are poising themselves to “eradicate the Second Amendment”, along with a link to an anti-gun op-ed by the Democrat lawmaker that was published in US Today.

Make no mistake, Democrats want to eradicate the Second Amendment, ban and seize all guns, and have all power rest with the state. These people are dangerously obsessed with power.




Don't Nuke me Bro

So basically @RepSwalwell wants a war. Because that’s what you would get. You’re outta your #ing mind if you think I’ll give up my rights and give the gov all the power.

There's already a thread on this clown and his nuclear statement, as was pointed out in the other thread it was likely meant as a point that citizens with their AR's are no match for the government and their arsenal of weaponry, if a rogue government wanted you dead they could do it and easily without a fight. To think he meant it literally is a little hyperbole if I ever saw it.

I didn't realize that, but real; fake it was said, that's the problem. That it was said at all. Poking a bear with an iron rod is never a good idea, which he knew would provoke and insult people.

Seems that's all politics is these days, just a bunch of agitators looking for likes from their respective base.

Right. Actually this is the same counter argument my roommate said in response to me saying second amendment is to protect us from gov tyranny. He asked how these weapons would protect against the vastly superior power and tech of the gov.

well if firearms are so inferior I guess there is no need to push for totalitarian gun control agendas.

Sounds like we should be worrying more about nukes in the wrong hands. Governments have caused more destruction with nuclear weapons than firearms yet they can have as many as they want.

It was real but it was in a tweet attempting to quickly rebut the notion that should the military turn on our citizens, the weapons we have will not be enough to fight them off, which, has long been one of the more staunch defenses against gun control. Yes it was a poor analogy, but that is what is was. A symbolic statement on the over all superiority of our military.

He may have been a little stupid and forgot that those in the military took an oath that included "all enemies, foreign and domestic."

Just because there will be a time that the left will have a COC again doesn't mean that his little fantasy can actually work.

But it is an interesting look into the mind, if you can call it that, of the left.

By Any Means Necessary, right?

Back when the American revolution was fought the military didn't have the same edge over the citizens that they do today in the world of modern weaponry.

To be blunt, it's my opinion that anyone who plays for team left or team right have lost it, you know the lights are on but nobody's home.

Well of course. That’s the point of this discussion

You do understand that our military is comprised of actual people, right? With families and loved ones and property and a love of country.

Then there are a lot more of us that are no longer in the service but didn't forget the skills when we left...

Interesting that the left is only tickled about the superiority of our military when they fantasize about using it to take over America.

Wish you luck!

And this is news exactly why and how? Unless you've been living in a closet for the last couple of years.

It's my opinion at this point that if you are not on a team, you are in denial.

There is a very real geosocialpolitical war going on right now in America.

I seriously doubt that it will ever escalate to another civil war.

However, there are only two other endings, economically.

One, we continue to slide left, bankrupt everything, settle into the Greatest Depression and have to move forward.

Two, we can fix the system we have and move forward.

Neither of those two alternatives end with the left in charge.

It's just math.

The military would never side with the government against U.S citizens.

If the democrat president (I know, not in the foreseeable future) ordered an attack on the populace the military would almost immediately split into factions. Factions for and against.

BOTH sides would have the same capabilities.

But the civilians WILL be armed as well. Because regardless what low-iq libs and their fascist politicians think, no laws will ever be passed to remove the 2nd amendment.

This does not have anything to do with taking a mans statement our of context and blowing it up into a hyperbolic charge of authoritarianism


Then there are a lot more of us that are no longer in the service but didn't forget the skills when we left...


Was one of the skills that retired service people still have the ability to comprehend when a man is making a simple tweet and understanding it within the context with which it was stated?

That, besides being a gross over exaggeration is also just plain bullcrap.
