It’s a funny thing about truth, the fact that the gist of any argument ends up rising to the surface. In the case of American liberalism versus conservatism, the truth looks like another revolution. News, a U.S. congressman, would as soon nuke his fellow countrymen as look at them is today’s case in point. Apparently, our leaders now predict we can win a war against ourselves.
Democratic Representative Eric Swalwell of California is living proof Californians will elect a batshit crazy representative if his lies are ridiculous enough. Swalwell, who said his call to public service was spurred by the 9/11 attacks when he was an intern for the former Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security Affairs, Ellen Tauscher. Talk about a good start as a high ranking Washington hypocrite, Swalwell got his start working for a lady who fights guns for Americans and serves on the board of directors of British weapons giant BAE Systems. That’s another story, let’s focus on Swalwell’s “Nuke Americans” in opposition to a government gun ban and collect move.
The good congressman went off the sanity reservation the other day with a radical proposal on assault weapons saying:
[America] should ban possession of military-style semiautomatic assault weapons, we should buy back such weapons from all who choose to abide by the law, and we should criminally prosecute any who choose to defy it by keeping their weapons.”
Then when the natural backlash over his statements came, Swalwell went bonkers on Twitter. Newsmax host, former NYPD officer John Cardillo Tweeted in response to Swalwell:
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.
Next, a veteran named Joe Biggs waded into the Twitter discussion responding to Cardillo’s Tweet, adding:
So basically @RepSwalwell wants a war. Because that’s what you would get. You’re outta your [expletive] mind if you think I’ll give up my rights and give the gov all the power.
The California Democrat’s response to this left a million Twitter users gobsmacked. The truth of all of America’s leadership spilled out like gunshot blood spatter onto the Twittersphere. Truth, in this case, is the dark irony of neoliberal psychosis. His retort to the U.S. veteran was:
And it would be a short war, my friend. The government has nukes. Too many of them. But they’re legit.
I’ll let the gooey reality of this statement sink in for a moment.
Eric Swalwell’s name is in the hat for a presidential run, in case you did not know. As scary as Donald Trump and loser Hillary Clinton might have been, the idea of a fascist new liberal nincompoop as Commander in Chief is bone chilling. Suggestions the Democratic Party should be renamed the “NeoKlanist” party, by the acting head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Ronald Vitiello now gain momentum with Swalwell’s “nuke em all” swagger.
Clown representatives are no rarity in America. Both parties have their fair share of complete and total idiots making law for the rest of us. I am sure that big business would not have it any other way. God forbid if Washington were populated with intelligent idealists with some sense of morality. This Swalwell is a symptom of a malignant disease that will eventually destroy America and most of the rest of the world along with her. Our leaders have now resorted to predicting military outcomes against our own people! Just imagine if you are from Yemen, Syria, Russia, Iran, or even Canada once these psychopaths finally get their way. I know my point is made.
As for this 2nd Amendment supporter, just let me know when Operation California Storm to take back America’s 31st state begins. I want to report the news of Swalwell nuking himself.
