Jew guessed it!

While rightwing media types have been looking around their collections of well-beslobbered dogwhistles and fretting about all the dangerous liberals who have encouraged murder by not actually encouraging murder, Former Wonkette editor/publisher Ken Layne reminded us t'other day that most of the scary conspiracy theories that drove the mail bomber and the Pittsburgh synagogue shooter were already firmly embedded in the rightwing imagination long ago, well before Donald Trump was taken seriously by anyone except his adviser and spokesman "John Barron." And that those particular doses of brain poison had been distilled into an evil little graphic novel by the NRA in 2006. Seriously, people, this shit didn't start with Trump, although he's done what he could to make it official policy.


Here's that little reminder from Ken:

" Freedom In Peril: Guarding the 2nd Amendment in the 21st Century" (link to full PDF download) is more an illustrated rant than a narrative comic. And golly, is it fucking nuts. Here is George Soros, coming to globalize you with his pimples and age spots!

Oh look, scary text about the international cosmopolitan string-puller! (We've cut some stuff from the original, but with this shit, context does not help.)

A globalist who believes in a borderless spread of international gun control and an end to US sovereignty, huh? May as well have called Soros a "rootless cosmopolitan" while they were at it. And by god, you have to be ready to "defeat the threat with a swift and certain sword" if necessary. Or an AR-15, if that's what you have handy and you need to do some ethnic cleansing.

Want more panic about the "ONE-WORLD EXTREMISTS" who want to ban guns AND fill the USA up with whiny crying refugees? They've got that covered too, with a crying child of uncertain nonwhite ethnicity who's too ugly for any smart US family to take in:

Horrifying, sure but scariest of all? Little bastard has the whole world in his or her dirty hands already, because George Soros gave it away! Oh, but that's not all! THEY have been bringing in immigrants, who are multiethnic but mostly Messican, also murderers and rapists bent on shooting YOUR CHILDREN from their armored lowrider '68 Impala of MUERTE:

Worse, the cops are actually prevented by liberal lawmakers from even asking about gangbangers' immigration status, because sanctuary-city liberals want you to die.

Also, let's not forget the media wants to scare you. But in a bad way, the kind that makes you want to ban guns, not the good way, like this comic that's simply educating you about the need to BUY MANY GUNS NOW! NOT ENOUGH, BUY MORE!

Gee, this all seems so very up to date, don't it? Like ALL FUCKING LAST WEEK up to date? It's identifying the targets, almost like a Dana Loesch video!

No sword there, but Dana's still ready to fight to the death, albeit with a metaphorical weapon what isn't a gun, so she is totally not saying to shoot anyone:

The only way we stop this, the only way we save our country and our freedom, is to fight this violence of lies with the clenched fist of truth. I'm the National Rifle Association of America, and I'm freedom's safest place.

She really puts the "ick!" in "stochastic terrorism."

Of course, some of the comic's fears are a bit more identifiably 2006, like our absolute favorite illustration of the Animal-Rights Terrorists coming for you: the terrorist lobster, the dynamite owl, the Dire Wolf, the Very Angry Chicken, and of course the hairy-legged kitty-tattooed Dyke of Doom:

Now, we should note that the comic was never officially published. Ken Layne said on the Twitter it was simply "a little too early to be so blatant, so after I exposed it on 12/22/2006, NRA never distributed it." In fact, it was so thoroughly over the top that some sources accused KEN of faking it, and come on, he is no "artist," say what you will about the aesthetic charms of the Wonkbot. But it's real as fuck, as far as we can tell. Ken said at the time he "received it from an anonymous DC tipster," as was the fashion in those days. The pics appears to be the work of graphic artist Chris Gall, whose caricatures of Hillary Clinton, Dianne Feinstein, Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry, and Ted Kennedy were in both the pamphlet and adorned the January 2007 cover of an NRA magazine, so there's not a lot of doubt about its provenance. The NRA later acknowledged it was theirs, but insisted it was "stolen" while it was still in draft form. Funny, they never found the right moment to release it.

But wait, Dok, you are saying to yourself, if this was never released, then how can you say it even influenced anyone, you silly? What, do you expect me to vanish in a puff of logic?

Hell, that's merely a matter of packaging.

The THEY'RE COMING TO GET YOU BE READY TO SHOOT THEM trope is the NRA's stock in trade, from virtually everything on NRA-TV to Wayne LaPierre's periodic BE TERRIFIED AND ARMED speeches, not to mention a near-infinite stream of preppers' apocalyptic fantasies, like this fantastic bit of agitprop (supposedly about the breakdown of civil order after a natural disaster) that may as well be the cover of the next reprint of The Turner Diaries.

This sucker is an impressive two-page spread in the original.

It's a dangerous world full of Messicans and rapists and Democrats and Jews out there, and you need to be ready. And it's now the worldview of the Republican Party. As Ken Layne replied to someone on Twitter who said the 2006 Wonkette post was "breathtaking,"

We still find it a little hard to breathe.

Once upon a time... about ten years ago, a group of entirely ridiculous men burst onto the scene wearing stupid hats and telling men that wearing stupid hats and telling men that walking up to women in bars and insulting ("negging") them would get them laid. This did not last long, as women also had televisions and computers and were completely aware of these tricks as well, so when some ass came up to us in a bar and said "Hey, nice nails, are they real?" we would laugh and laugh and loudly announce "Oh my god, this guy just tried to neg me! Can you believe that shit? HEY EVERYONE, THIS GUY JUST TRIED TO NEG ME!" and then refer to him as "Mystery" the whole night.

Most of the men who tried that shit only did so a few times before realizing that it wasn't going to work, and thus moved on to other things. Perhaps things that did not involve furry hats and coming off as a huge creep. We may never know, because I would assume that those who tried it are now extremely embarrassed and would never, ever admit to this to us.

Still, there were a few men willing to eat that shit up, as well as some grifters willing to take advantage of that. Said grifters tended to be extremely misogynistic and seemed more like they were teaching men how to be as despised by women as they were than teaching them how to actually be liked by women.

Some of them, like Roosh V, a creepy weirdo who actually does live in his mom's basement, actively encouraged men to rape women who were intoxicated to the point of being obviously unable to consent.

However, even that branch of the PUA tree is wilting away. Many "self-help" style PUA forums like Nextasf and RSDnation are shutting down or have already shut down. In March, Chateau Heartiste, a batshit crazy PUA turned White Nationalist/Alt-Right blog was shut down by Wordpress. This week, rape advocate Roosh V (whom you may recall once called yours truly a "Wonkette typist/clown face, would not bang") announced that he was renouncing his PUA ways and devoting himself to Jesus. He explained to the forum he manages that he would no longer be allowing anyone to discuss premarital "fornication."

'Baby Geniuses' star Jon Voight took to Twitter early this morning to proclaim his undying love for Donald Trump, probably because there is no one left in his life who will listen to him talk about this, or anything else, in person. In this video rant, Voight encouraged members of the Republican Party, whom he apparently thinks are the only real citizens of the United States, to stand by Donald Trump and "acknowledge the truth" that he is the best President since Abraham Lincoln.


Part ONE:

People of the Republican Party, I know you will agree with me when I say our president has our utmost respect and our love. This job is not easy. For he's battling the left and their absurd words of destruction. I've said this once and I'll say this again. That our nation has been built on the solid ground from our forefathers, and there is a moral code of duty that has been passed on from President Lincoln. I'm here today to acknowledge the truth, and I'm here today to tell you my fellow Americans that our country…

Oh no, not our absurd words of destruction!

Part DEUX:

is stronger, safer, and with more jobs because our President has made his every move correct. Don't be fooled by the political left, because we are the people of this nation that is witnessing triumph. So let us stand with our president. Let us stand up for this truth, that President Trump is the greatest president since President Lincoln.

Does Jon Voight not know there have been... other presidents? Can he name them? Because really, it does not sound like it. Does he also not know that a very big chunk of the Republican Party actually does not care very much for Abraham Lincoln? Namely those defenders of Confederate statues that Trump called "very fine people?" Also, did he intentionally diss their beloved Ronald Reagan?

Who can know? Who can even tell what he is trying to say or why he is trying to say it. He doesn't appear to have tweeted much since 2016, so I'm guessing whoever's job it was to keep him from tanking his career quit. Either that... or after filming the seventh season of Ray Donovan, he found out it's going to be canceled or his character is getting killed off or something and he is now free to be a jackass? I don't know, I haven't watched the show, although my parents are very into it and mad that I haven't watched it. Literally all I know about it is that it has something to do with Boston, because they keep mentioning that to me like it's a selling point.

It seems useless at this point to note that the people who scream their faces off about how bad it is for Hollywood celebs to support liberal causes, and how they should keep their politics to themselves, etc. etc. make a way bigger deal than normal people do whenever a Big Time Hollywood Celebrity like Jon Voight or, uh, Scott Baio, supports their cause. Mostly because they're the only ones who have elected a reality TV star and the star of Bedtime for Bonzo (who by the way, also once practically ruined a perfectly good Bette Davis movie with his bad acting. Which is not to say that Dark Victory is not fantastic and probably the best thing to watch if you want to sob your face off, but he was very bad in it.) to run the country.

But we might as well do that anyway, because it actually never stops being funny.
