"Just because you do not take an interest in politics doesn't mean politics won't take an interest in you”

Wingnut, Get Your Gun!

I have long been on email lists from both Democratic and Republican and non-partisan interest groups. Understanding how differently each views and interprets political events has always fascinated me. For a few years I worked at a small non-profit monitoring Political Talk Radio. Long before the current Rush Rising – during the Clinton impeachment - I was listening to Limbaugh, G. Gordon Liddy, and Oliver North on a daily basis.

Somehow my head didn’t explode nor did the experience cause me to lose faith in progressive ideas. In fact, the opposite happened. It did immunize me to the racist, homophobic, misogynistic tirades that are the bread and butter of the Angry Right. When vicious and irrational emails attacking a Democratic candidate’s religion, sexual orientation or patriotism, I often follow my father’s sage advice when he would simply say, “Christopher, consider the source.” I’ve even learned to shrug off Coulter’s nonsensical crap.

In addition to the lies they perpetuate about President Obama (he’s a Muslim, America-hating, Iran-loving Socialist!), the Right-Wing nutcases send emails denouncing global warming, vilifying immigrants, and blaming ACORN for Wall Street’s crash. It’s clear that reality and the Right went separate ways long ago and Republicans have paid the price at the ballot box.

But, this morning, an email from World Net Daily via Human Events was simply blood-chilling.

The subject line read: MILLIONAIRE PATRIOT WANTS YOU ARMED AND TRAINED

I’ll admit I don’t understand the fear gun enthusiasts have that the government is going to take away law-abiding citizens’ right to bear arms. If it didn’t happen after tragedies like Columbine or Virginia Tech, the government is going to start seizing guns anytime soon.

When the Angry Right, in the wake of a presidential campaign that saw Palin campaign events look more like the marauding peasants storming Dracula’s castle, urges their base to arm themselves because Democrats control Congressional majorities and the White House, I’m fearful for our future.


MILLIONAIRE PATRIOT WANTS YOU ARMED AND TRAINED
Offers His Own Money to
Provide You With Springfield
Armory Pistol and 30-State Concealed Weapon Permit

Dear Reader,
The next four years may prove to be a turning point for all freedom loving Americans.

With the new administration holding party majorities in the House and Senate, we are facing the worst political environment for the passage of unchecked gun control legislation and further erosion of our constitutional right to bear arms than we have previously seen in our lifetimes.

As the nation creeps from recession to depression, the potential for civil unrest in every major city grows more likely. There has never been a more crucial time in our nation's history to make sure you are armed and trained for the protection of yourself and your family.

One man in our country knows this better than most, and I'm proud to tell you, he is doing something about it.

His name is Dr. Ignatius Piazza.

He is the Founder and Director of Front Sight Firearms Training
Institute and is known by his hundreds of thousands of students as 'The Millionaire Patriot' because he has literally given away millions of dollars in free and discounted training to law abiding citizens to assist them is securing what he refers to as "The Comfort of Skill at Arms."

Dr. Piazza, the Millionaire Patriot, wants YOU armed and trained and he is putting his money where his mouth is.

He is providing you with the opportunity to attend five days of world class training at his Front Sight Firearms Training Institute with everything you need to secure permits to carry a concealed handgun in over 30 states-all for pennies-on-the-dollar!

Plus, if you act quickly before all the guns he set aside are gone, he will give you, free of charge, a Springfield Armory XD Pistol in your choice of 9mm, .40SW, or .45ACP!

That's right. This is legitimate. Thousands of people have already taken advantage of it AND YOU SHOULD TOO!

I can personally vouch for Dr. Piazza and his Front Sight Firearms Training Institute.

I believe now more than ever before that EVERY American should be armed and trained to the highest levels possible-levels that exceed law enforcement and military standards.

Take advantage of the Millionaire Patriot's offer. Get armed and trained to prepare for what may be coming in the next four years!

NOW is the time to get armed and trained. Don't wait until it is too late.

P.S., You have never seen me make such a personal endorsement, so take heed to the fact that I am telling you to take advantage of Dr. Piazza's offer to get five days of world class training at Front Sight, concealed weapon permits good in 30 states, and a FREE Springfield Armory XD Pistol.

Thanks so much for posting this. I just signed up for my free gun. Can't wait to get to Front Sight for my firearms training, to learn how to defend myself with it.
