Good lord, the crazies are stepping up their game in Gilberton, Pennsylvania. Apparently, Gilberton police chief Mark Kessler is enacting his own demented, fascist version of Shay’s Rebellion. Though recently suspended, Kessler has forcefully maintained his position as chief, posting armed guards from his Constitution Security Force, strip searching city council members, and generally promising physical violence on any “libtard” who dares to speak against him and his views. Meanwhile, in his spare time, he’s threatening the life of Secretary of State John Kerry.
This is the kind of radical right wing bullshit that keeps me up at night folks: If a police chief turned militant psycho is allowed to ignore the very Constitution that he thinks he’s so vehemently and violently protecting, what’s next? Will Rick Perry form his own militia and declare Texas as a Republic once again? This country just might be doomed to fall apart after all, but it’s not from the liberals, the socialists, the anarchists, or the atheist: Our country is threatened by people such as Mark Kessler, a man willing to go to any length to insure that his beliefs are the beliefs of the country. It’s people such as Mark Kessler who are the real terrorist. He is living proof of a demented group of people who are willing to go to any length to inflict their dogma on the rest of us. This is NOT patriotism, this is paranoid, terrorist fanaticism.
That, my friends, has me scared shitless.
By the way, there is an online petition calling for Federal intervention to remove Kessler and his militia. If you would like to sign it, please go here.
