A Call to Arms

I was over at Liberty’s Torch Fran Porretto’s home on the web today. His most recent post is one which in today’s climate one might have considered asking “Do you really want to plant your flag on that hill?”

Ok, you might ask that question if you were a metro sexual left leaning weeny, followed by something along the lines of “Can’t we just get along?”

Rest assured, you won’t find anyone here asking that kinda thing…

Anyhow, back to the good Mr. Porretto’s post. I came away with a feeling that he has reached saturation IRT to the insipid followers and fellow travelers to the current administration. (And one assumes, with the current administration as well.) To that end he has fired full broadside on one of the same who happened to comment over at Breitbart Big Government. With his kind permission, it reads as fallows:

I hate the Republicans and everything they stand for.” – Howard Dean.

You are the enemy.
You are not benevolent.
Your first goal is to disarm us.
Your second goal is to eliminate privacy.
Your third goal is to criminalize our opinions.
You want power for yourselves, and nothing else.
You believe yourselves entitled to rule us absolutely.
You routinely wish for the deaths of conservative figures.
You would have us forcibly “re-educated,” if you could pull it off.
You are trying to destroy all remaining restraints on the federal government.
You’re doing everything you can to criminalize disagreement with your agenda.
You accuse your political opponents of every foul crime and motivation in the book.
And you do it with a contemptuous smirk that says “You can’t stop us no matter what you do.”

I tried to grant you the presumption of integrity. 
I can’t. You’ve forfeited all claim to decency or benign purpose. 
The only difference between you and the Communists of North Korea is your skin tone. 
From here to the end of my life, I will do all in my power to have you seen for what you really are. 
Not decent people with different opinions about what’s best, or what means are acceptable. 
Not persons agonized over America’s residuum of violence, or poverty, or racism. 
Not neighbors peacefully willing to agree to disagree with other Americans. 
You are none of those things. 
You are the enemy. 
You are villains. 

It is my belief that we have just been issued a “call to arms”. And I would have to agree with all that he said. My only thought is it fails to include just about every one else in the political arena. There are but a handful of folks who seek to see this country return to something akin to what the forefathers envisioned some 230 odd years ago. With all due respect Fran, ya only broadsided half the bastards.

And by all means go look at the original.  It strikes me (and others, in his comments) that the original layout looks very much like a pennant.  Perhaps someone with strong photoshop or gimp skills could fit the above into a pennant.  Might make for a dandy addition to one’s flag pole … right under the Gadsden flag.
