Yes, we conservatives are the hate-filled bigots because we still use terms like “illegal immigrants,” “Islamic terrorists” and oh yeah, “Merry Christmas.” Yes, very hateful – and you know the American Civil Liberties Union would be first in line to point that out, except…
What happens when one of their OWN squeaks out a little bona fide hate speech?
Per the Daily Mail, “Loring Wirbel stepped down from his job with the Colorado Springs chapter of the ACLU after his Facebook post likening Trump to a Nazi and saying that he would have to shoot anyone who votes for him began making the Internet rounds, according to the New York Daily News.”
His rant was accompanied by a USA Today article calling Trump a ‘fear monger in chief.’
The original post, which has been taken down, read, ‘The thing is, we have to really reach out to those who might consider voting for Trump and say, ‘This is Goebbels. This is the final solution. If you are voting for him. I will have to shoot you before election day.’ They’re not going to listen to reason, so when justice is gone, there’s always force, as Laurie would say.’
Goebbels refers to one of Hitler’s main henchmen, Joseph Goebbels. And Laurie refers to Laurie Anderson and her song, O Superman, according to the outlet.
The song’s lyrics referenced are: ‘Cause when love is gone, there’s always justice / And when justice is gone, there’s always force / And when force is gone, there’s always Mom.’
Wirbel defended his post, saying it was just a ‘joke’ but admitted that he could see how it could cause offense, reported the Gazette.
‘It was intended totally as a joke. They are taking that stuff out of context. It’s smear politics,’ he told the outlet.
The ACLU, a group that defends a broad array of civil liberties, issued a statement saying it does not ‘condone the recent personal Facebook post of regional volunteer Loring Wirbel.’
Well, that’s refreshing to hear. Because I truly don’t see how saying “If you are voting for him. I will have to shoot you before election day” can really be taken out of context.
And anyway, what’s he going to shoot WITH? Liberals don’t have guns, do they? I thought it was just us “bitter clingers.”
