Jaws_Victim: cman: hardinparamedic: Someone deserves a good kick in the balls. Repeatedly. Charge admission and we could solve our national debt problem.

Kicking a mentally ill man in the nuts always goes over well with the public

back in the 1700s they charged admission so people could go into insane asylums and torment the mentally illl. Its where the term "bedlam" originated.


Hmm...

Bedlam, popular name for the Hospital of St. Mary of Bethlehem, London, an insane asylum, from Middle English Bedlem Bethlehem

WBC has legal non-violent protest. This guy was calling houses repeditely after being asked to stop.
If this guy had signs that said "shooting was a fake!" "Victims on vacation" and said his beleifs in a non violent manner then he wouldn't have been arrested. Say what you want about the WBC but they know the law

It might not be popular, but hey that's how the government rolls:

"ATF agents running an undercover storefront in Milwaukee used a brain-damaged man with a low IQ to set up gun and drug deals, paying him in cigarettes, merchandise and money, according to federal documents obtained by the Journal Sentinel.
...
Once authorities shut down the operation, they charged the 28-year-old man with federal gun and drug counts.
...
Wright's IQ measures in the 50s, about half of a normal IQ, according to those familiar with him. "

It's cool though.

Bullseyed: Nina_Hartley's_Ass: Bullseyed: There is no evidence this guy is even pro-gun

The whole Aurora/Newtown conspiracy thing, even the milder forms("He didn't use the AR-15!") is exclusively brought up by GUN NUTS hoping to discredit or diminish calls for increased regulation.

No one else has a reason to buy into it.

You think conspiracy theorists have "reasons"? You obviously don't understand how conspiracy theories work.



I happen to have some family members to who buy into this guy's same conspiracy theories. And it does have to do with guns. The idea is that Barack Obama faked the massacres at Aurora and Newton, using combinations of holograms or moon bases or whatever, so that the public outcry can prompt a new wave of gun legislation to take away all our guns.

The idea is that once he has disarmed the populace, he can then turn the U.S. into a dictatorship and bring us under the fold of the New World Government, run by either the Bilderberg group or the Illuminati or some conflation thereof.

That's the common ground for all these theories. After that, it tends to get wacky. For example, my family members believe that once Obama brings us into the NWG, the world will be about to end because of (depending on the day) either a meteor impact, a passing planet causing gravitational havoc, or a solar flare that wipes out all electronics on the planet. The idea is then, in the chaos, Obama, the Illuminati, and the NWG will be the only ones with firearms, and they will create a new social order out of the ashes.

Anyway, I think all that shiat is insane, but yes, it is about guns (peripherally). These folks are almost without exception avid gun owners and 2nd amendment activists. They want to survive the end of times and resist the NWG, after all. There's a whole subculture with, I shiat you not, conferences and stuff. It's all tied into the sovereign citizen crap, constitutional law, fiat currency, etcetera. People will hold panels on this shiat.

mbillips: So, all these school massacres are just faked as an excuse for Obama to push gun control legislature that gets watered down to meaninglessness in the Senate and dies in the House without even a committee meeting? Jesus, that Obama is diabolical, and yet incompetent.

Calling someone on the telephone is not harassment.

If what he says to them on the phone is so harassing, why did they answer the phone to begin with? Why not hang up? Maybe the victims families should be arrested for enabling harassment by not hanging up the phone when he calls.


All it takes is for them to say "please stop calling me" (in any form, they don't need to be polite about it) and for him to keep doing it in order for it to turn into harassment.  This isn't some grade school "I'm not touching you" bullshiat, this is a full-grown man harassing the bajeezus out of people who very recently lost young children.  Use your brain.

Hey Bullseyed,

                            Give me your phone number & email so I can ask you to prove that you're not part of the NRA conspiracy to get as many gun massacres occur in one year as humanly possible.

See, I believe that it's actually a group of far right activists who have secretly trained gun enthusiasts to commit mass shootings in such an alarming frequency that the government will eventually be forced to ban guns which finally give the Militia morons the new Civil War they so desperately want.
   I base this on the exact same evidence that Kevin Purfield, Alex Jones, and other "Truthers" have, however I found out that stick their photographic evidence in microwave while simultaneously standing on your head and eating cheerios, you get the secret messages.


Remember, you just have to let me contact you via email & telephone so I can determine whether or not your part of Operation Potato.

I await your answer

In e-mails Purfield has sent to The Denver Post, he has said he believes no one was killed in the July 20 theater attack and has suggested the victims are at a secret moon base. On Purfield's Twitter page, he also promotes conspiracy theories about the attack on Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.

And who gave him that idea?

Just like the people who claim 9-11 was an inside job are taunting the victims families right? Should we arrest and execute the morons who made Loose Change?

I've never seen Loose Change, but does it actually accuse the victims of being part of the conspiracy, and that they're not really dead?  Does it accuse the next-of-kin of being part of the cover-up?

/Serious question, I've never seen it, and have no desire to.


Yes, he does. In fact, he accuses a couple of million people of being part of the cover-up, because that's how many it would take to silence something like this, starting from Bush and going all the way down to the friends of the friends of the family members. He says that the two planes that hit WTC were remote-control military planes, that a missile hit the Pentagon, and that everyone on Flight 93 were taken off the plane before it was remote-control crashed into the ground. He maintains that all the people aboard those planes are being held in some government facility until they die to keep the cover-up in place, and when he plays sound clips of the people on the planes talking to people on their cell phones he mocks and derides how "fake" they are.

He's also made a bunch of updated versions of Loose Change, calling each one the definitive version and just shuffling around some sound bites and adding new lunacy with each edition.

A schizophrenic neighbor once told me that if he were ever drafted into the army and deployed to Iraq, he would start shooting the other draftees to "prevent" them from slaughtering helpless civilians in Iraq.

Me: Why would you do that?  Those other soldiers might not want to be there any more than you do.

Him:  Oh, no.  The military in these organizations are always bloodthirsty sociopaths who are waiting for a good excuse to kill.

Me: If they sent you over, then they would also send other people over who have no choice in it.

Him: (paraphrasing) That's not true.  I'm the only one would have a conscience about killing Iraqi civilians.  The other soldiers are bloodthirsty baby-killers.

I have the same fatal flaw he does: I'm always convinced I can argue someone well enough to change their minds, so this argument went on for a while.
Case in point, mentally ill people often have a tunnel vision in which they are unable to understand other people's suffering.

Felgraf: There is a difference between calling someone repeatedly, and posting online.

My posting my disagrements does not prevent other people from posting (tying up your phone line). It does not force you to not-use your computer to get away from the noise (If he's calling them repeatedly, the only way to get the phone to stop ringing/interrupting their lives would be unplug the phone).


So you're making up a bunch of assumptions, not present in the article. Interesting. Cite a credible source that says he is making back to back calls and we can proceed.

Also email was specifically cited as another reason for the arrest. Sending emails is actually less harassing than you posting here because it is private instead of public.

Wadded Beef: Bullseyed: Nina_Hartley's_Ass: Bullseyed: There is no evidence this guy is even pro-gun

The whole Aurora/Newtown conspiracy thing, even the milder forms("He didn't use the AR-15!") is exclusively brought up by GUN NUTS hoping to discredit or diminish calls for increased regulation.

No one else has a reason to buy into it.

You think conspiracy theorists have "reasons"? You obviously don't understand how conspiracy theories work.

Well, at least we can all agree that moments like this are the reason we need background checks to buy guns.


Depends on what you're looking for in a background check. People who have committed felonies shouldn't own guns, but that is already in place in any gun shop that is going to obey any new law anyway.

With this guy in particular... he probably isn't OK mentally, but he has no criminal history and no public medical records relating to mental defect, so explain what good a background check would do?
