Douchebag Of The Day: Ponch ‘Armed Revolution If Obama’s Reelected’ McPhee 5/9/2012
Awarded to Ponch McPhee, the editor of the Greene County Republican Committee’s newsletter in Virginia for advocating violence if the vote doesn’t go the way he wants:
“[W]e shall not have any coarse [sic] but armed revolution should we fail with the power of the vote in November,” McPhee writes. “This Republic cannot survive for 4 more years underneath this political socialist ideologue.”
Obviously this is just another ISOLATED INCIDENT of violent right wing rhetoric. There have been so many ISOLATED INCIDENTS that I’ve completely lost count. Can you remember the last time the editor of a liberal publication printed something about armed revolution even during the Bush presidency? If this is really the ISOLATED INCIDENT the right always claims it to be and has nothing to do with conservatism itself, why is it that all of these ISOLATED INCIDENTS only come from the right?
For promoting violence over democracy, thus proving yet again that conservatives hate the very idea of democracy, Congratulations, Ponch McPhee!! You’re a douchebag!! And I’m sure you’ll always have a job in the conservative movement.
