Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, December 05, 2021

Laura Bradley: In an almost incredible failure to read the room, Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) on Saturday shared a photo of himself and his family grinning widely as they all wield rifles -- an image he captioned with, "Santa, please bring more ammo," just days after the latest deadly school shooting.

Massie is painfully thick, even for a Trumpfist jackass.

Doesn't really seem like a Christian message.

Then again, when he and his family attend church they daydream about target practice.

Then again, again----Such people seem to belong to a cult only connected to Jesus in a most tenuous way. I'm pretty sure that if Trump called himself God they would set up Christmas trees in honor of him. Those who didn't would wonder if they should.

When or if your identity is ever tied this closely to anything you should seek help.

This is the cover of the illest gangsta rap album ever to come out of Kentucky.

That's a belt-fed M60, right?

Shawty rockin' a Uzi or is that a MAC-10?

Ideal for home defense and/or hunting.

I'd point to this being part of America's cultural decay.

But. It's a married couple.

Also. I'm sure all members of the family owning ARs is as American as apple pie and can be traced back to the pilgrims.

Folks in Northern Kentucky usually scratch their heads about this guy, who keeps getting re-elected, so there are enough Kentucky Briars who like him. Massie is a bad fart which will not go away ...

Because nothing says we want to honor the birth of our Lord and Savior like posing with a mac 10.

These poor knuckle-draggers have no other words that the fake tough guy act that they think the moron voters will like. No ideas. Nothing smart. No leadership. They just want the wheel of progress to spin in place and not move in any direction. Lame.

Once that little girl grows up, she can upgrade from her Uzi.

Well it is a great pic, but not like he imagines, it shows how stupid the whole "take a picture of me and my gun" really is.

Big fan of 2A, but I don't understand this Xmas photo.

He's from Kentucky, that ain't the South. Kentucky didn't secede from the Union during the Civil War.

Massie is a clown obsessed with demonstrating another example of the aggressive stupidity tainting the current class of the GOP. This is just his way of flipping off the people who are concerned about yet another round of senseless gun violence. He thinks it makes him look like a rebel.

#21 - culturally, Kentucky *is* the south. Obviously it's not the south geographically since most of AZ, NM, and half of California are geographically south of Kentucky. But we don't refer to them as "the south".

Do you understand pictures of Jihdaist guys with Koran quotes behind them holding AKs and rocket launchers?
Then you ought to be able to understand this photo.

No I don't understand that either, thanks for trying to explain it though; Does it impress you? What do you think it means?

#TheyreTheSamePictureMeme probably but still don't understand it.

I don't think it's the same thing. The Jihadis are actually using them to fight for something, misguided or not.

These fools in the Xmas picture have no intention of doing anything with them other than posing and bragging bout how much ammo they have in the basement.

"Does this image mean the same thing to you?"

Not even close.

That's a commentary on the original image implying the desire for power made manifest by the American right-wing gun fetishist is a reaction formation to the lack of power in their personal life; in this case in their sexual prowess.

The original image is perhaps most easily understood as Virtue Signaling. Do you know what virtue signaling is? Google "Trump Goya" if you want to see more virtue signaling, if that will help you understand. Or you could even google "Dukakis Tank."

"Dukakis Tank."

Now THAT was a classic.

"I don't think it's the same thing. The Jihadis are actually using them to fight for something, misguided or not."

For sure, there's a difference between actually fighting and just saying you're ready to fight.

But they're more alike than they are different.

Republicanism is just Jihadism with extra steps. Steps the GOP has been carrying out for 40 years now, to impose their will through government and ultimately backstopped by men with guns, versus just being men with guns imposing their power directly.

Republicans have been fighting this metaphorical war as long as Ho Chi Minh fought to take his country back. It sure seems like they're pretty close to winning.

That's to be expected.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to the poor

People who vote for that fool are people like future voter Kyle Rittenhouse.

The gun debate is where your party started to lose it's mind - Turning "guns" into some sort of personality replacement, lying to it's followers that dems were going to steal their guns so they could install communism etc. Filling your heads with paranoia and conspiracies for decades. So that by the time trump arrived your brains were so rotted with lies that he seemed like a great leader.

Dont be deluded about the state of our nation. The fools in the xmas picture are just counting down til they get the order or excuse to use them on liberals.

It's a cult full of rittenhouses and they'll point their guns at you before long.

Statistics indicate that he is WAAAAAAYYYYYYY more likely to kill himself or a loved one or friend than to "defend" himself against some actual threat.

No you grunt.

Some quick fun gun facts for you and your brain housing group to absorb.

Each year 500 people die from unintentional firearm injuries- more than one person every day.

Unintentional firearm injuries account for 37% of non fatal firearm injuries but less than 2% of all gun deaths.

Americans are four times more likely to die from gun injury than people living in other high income countries.

Alcohol and unsafe to stored firearms increase the risk of an unintentional firearm death.

They have increased their chance of an unintentional death by firearms dramatically. So odds are one of them will die by the gun.
