Indiana Deputy Attorney General Suggests Killing Wisconsin Protesters With 'Live Ammunition'
Do you get the feeling America is in actual meltdown, for real this time, and that the outcome is as hazy as some night-time web video streaming on Al Jazeera from Libya or Bahrain or wherever? Pictured above is a Twitter post by Indiana Deputy Attorney General Jeff Cox, who responded to aMother Jones post about the Wisconsin protests with the charming words, "Use Live Ammunition." You know, murder government employees for having a labor protest. Murder them! Fucking traitors, right?
The good news is that Jeff Cox, this deputy AG in Indiana, was just fired from his state government job. Good luck in the private sector! Maybe the Koch Bros. need a new fluffer or something, for five-fifty an hour, part time/no benefits/graveyard shift. Maybe that would be fun!
Strange times, because we are regularly consulting Mother Jones this week for some hawt newz. We have nothing against MJ, and in fact used to write for it, about a decade ago. But it hasn't been essential reading for a while now ... until now. It has been all over the Wisconsin protests, all over the Actual Causes of this fake "government fiscal crisis" -- billionaires, multi-millionaires and huge corporations pay almost no income tax, while you will have your meager assets seized and your shitty Denny's paycheck garnished (with a sprig of parsley) if you don't pay your taxes. And now it got this "Cox-Sucker" fired from his welfare queen gov't job, because he epitomizes the violent, idiotic bullshit spouting from these hired goons employed to harass people and protect billionaires. That's true! Totally true.
On Saturday night, when Mother Jones staffers tweeted a report that riot police might soon sweep demonstrators out of the Wisconsin capitol building—something that didn't end up happening—one Twitter user sent out a chilling public response: "Use live ammunition."
.... Only later did we realize that JCCentCom was a deputy attorney general for the state of Indiana.
The guy has apparently been blogging this kind of caveman swill for 10 years, and who noticed, right, because come on, Indiana? But his vile, impotent fantasies of killing his fellow Americans and fellow state-government employees, because they have a legal right to protest work compensation and conditions, finally attracted the exact kind of attention necessary to kick this slob out the door. Enjoy free enterprise, ya jerkwad. Anybody dumb enough to hire you will change their mind once they run a quick Google search. [Mother Jones]
