James Carville's description of Pennsylvania as "Philadelphia and Pittsburgh with Alabama in between" is an insult to Alabama. There are still pockets of hate in Alabama as there are in every state, but our neighbors to the West mostly got rid of ugliness like this years ago.

GILBERTON —— In a YouTube video with nearly 20,000 hits, Gilberton police Chief Mark Kessler fires restricted weapons in a profanity-riddled monologue off an old stripping road in this tiny coal region borough.
Despite the ensuing media stir and calls to Borough Hall the video generated Tuesday, Mayor Mary Lou Hannon said she saw no reason to discipline Kessler, who said he made the video to draw attention to gun rights. Hannon noted he did it on his own time and violated no laws.
|Tuesday on his Facebook page, Kessler called for |
a massive rally to “show these tyrants we will not
stand for any more violations on our constitution or
"Each member of council, each employee and each citizen is not only entitled to their own political opinions, but also the right to express them," she said in a prepared statement. "We will not take action to quash free speech, whether or not each member of council or any member of council agrees with it."
[...] In an interview, Hannon said she understands how the video could appear alarming to those who don't know Kessler, but she believes the borough is safer with him than without him. She described the video, which she and other council members viewed Tuesday morning, as something from "an R-rated movie."
[...] Kessler said he made the video and other videos to draw attention to efforts to restrict guns. He specifically pointed to public statements that politicians made after the Dec. 14 shooting in Newtown, Conn., where 20 children and six adults died. He called the shooting "a tragedy" but condemned the person who shot the gun, not the gun.
Kessler, the borough's chief for 14 years and a freshman member of the North Schuylkill School Board, said he used profanity to get attention. He said he's gotten thousands of emails over the last two weeks from supporters across the nation.►More at the link.

Here is a screen shot from
==► I started to make a different blog post featuring the latest George Zimmerman story, about how he was at the right place at the right time to help get a family to safety after their vehicle overturned in Sanford, Florida. Zimmerman is not in any way connected with the story above, but the comments section I just came across simmers with many of the same sentiments to which the Pennsylvania police chief appeals -- resentment of Liberals and bigotry writ large and getting larger.
►Who has caused this families fear….Barack Hussein Obama and his evil minion Eric “Racist” Holder. Mr. President heal the nation and end the madness…
►He’s not a coward. I understand why he doesn’t want to ask questions. He is right, people will target them & accuse them of making up the story. There’s no reason why he needs to come out to the press & justify anything, as long as they know the truth, that’s all that matters. As far as George Zimmerman, he can’t fool Karma, he’s going to have to do a lot more than help a family out of their car in order to build up enough good karma to save him from the black hole.
►So, he is not allowed to protect his family from the crazy leftists and black racists out there who might want to do them harm because this accident might have made Zimmerman look heroic?? Are you friggin’ kidding?
►THIS MAN AND FAMILY FEAR THE SATAN IN THE WHITE HOUSE
satan now rules America.
►Taking precautions against the small army of racist thugs terrorists that the CBC, Holder, and Obama have aimed at anyone associated with Zimmerman, even marginally isn’t cowardice when you have the lives of two small children to worry about. Don’t think for an instant that these monsters on the left wouldn’t murder these two innocent children just to make their point.
►We just need to get the Race War that’s coming started and get it over with already…….
►Doesn’t anyone have the courage to stand up for whats right anymore? Why do people let these thugs intimidate them? Yes, these professional victims exist everywhere, including the White House, but look what decades of coddling created. I stand with Zimmerman.
►It’s “Don’t get involved”, “let someone else help” ,or “I might get sued.” Over time we have been reeducated; don’t stop, don’t look, and don’t help. When seconds count, the police are minutes, or sometimes even hours away. We have become a nation of gutless cowards. We are now being trained that it is wrong to even defend ourselves. In grammar school, your kids are being PUNISHED for standing up for themselves against bullies. What kind of adults do you think they will grow up to be? Just the kind our administration wants. More cowardly passive and dependent than even some of us are now.
►This family’s fear is the embodiment of everything we’ve been saying about liberals and the kind of people they are – this family is saved from their vehicle crash – but the libs threaten to hurt them? I guess the “caring” libs expected the family to turn to GZ and say – OMG – it’s YOU. Get away! I’d rather burn in this vehicle than have YOU pull me out.
Remember – libs’ hero (drunk hero) walked away from the vehicle he himself crashed, leaving Mary Jo Kopechne to drown alone. And I don’t remember the libs doing anything but standing behind their guy for it.
►This is all we need to know to prove who liberals really are – they’re dangerous, self-serving, and out of control and they don’t actually give a d** about anybody but themselves (for all their empty chest beating about how caring and diverse they are).
►Our GOD IS NOT a god of fear, but of courage and a sound mind.
Guess who the administration serves?
STAND UP, CHRISTIANS.
JESUS AND GOD ARE COUNTING ON YOU!!!
**Amen Grandma, amen.
**In the end one serves either God or the Devil, and the leftist of the administration have demonstrated by word and deed where their ultimate allegiance lay.
Another amen here KICK………….Satan is alive and well and has moved into our White House.
**Galations 6:14, “far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.”
**We really need to put on the whole armor of God, and not be afraid. Better to die doing good than to sit around bemoaning this government. If we don’t get involved in getting good people in this government, who will? George Zimmerman is being trashed by our useless president and the left, I for one am sick of it. Thanks for the comment Granny
I could go on for pages, but this is enough to make the point. A large, angry subset of the population appears to be trembling with rage. And when religion becomes part of the argument little remains separating them from extremists whom we read about in other countries who have crossed the line from non-violence to violence. What is being expressed here is more than offensive. It is potentially dangerous.
I hate to say it, but these people are a good reason for the National Security Agency to keep an eye on a large part of the population. No wonder some of them don't want anyone looking over their shoulder.
