I mean, really now. TERFism is responsible for the deaths of thousands of trans people, and you want us to feel bad because somebodythrew glitter at a TERF?

Apparently, making it impossible for trans* people to get necessary healthcare so that they die of totally treatable ailments is a-ok, but throwing something painless and harmless at a person who hates all of us is TOTALLY BEYOND THE PALE YOU GUISE.

"I’m under attack all the time. They call me gay, there are death threats. There are times where I’m not thinking as clearly as I should, and in those unclear moments, I always think to myself, ‘Fire the first shot.’ Bring it on. Because I know who’s on our side. They can only win a rhetorical and propaganda war. They cannot win. We outnumber them in this country, and we have the guns. I’m not kidding. They talk a mean game, but they will not cross that line because they know what they’re dealing with.

And I have people who come up to me in the military, major named people in the military, who grab me and they go, ‘Thank you for what you’re doing, we’ve got your back.’ They understand that. These are the unspoken things we know, they know."

Andrew Breitbart, fantasizing about starting a civil war and killing liberals at a Boston Tea Party event. 

I’d like to compare and contrast for a second. Conservatives got all riled up over Teamster President Jimmy Hoffa’s comments on Labor Day. At a rally in Detroit, he said, “President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. And President Obama we want one thing: Jobs. Jobs. Jobs. Jobs. Jobs. Jobs. Jobs. Jobs. That’s what we’re going to tell him. He’s going to be - and when he sees what we’re doing here he will be inspired. But he needs help and you know what? Everybody here’s got to vote. If we go back and keep the eye on the prize, let’s take these sons of bitches out and give America back to America where we belong!”

So he’s talking about voting anti-union politicians out of office. Conservatives self-righteously condemned his remarks as “thuggery” and “hate speech.” Tea Party Express leader Amy Kremer said, “It is high time that elected leaders like President Obama were held accountable when their key supporters engage in harmful and divisive rhetoric.” Well, I think Breitbart’s quite clear, particularly when he says, “We outnumber them in this country and we have the guns…”

Penn Bullock at Towleroad writes, “On the face of it, Breitbart’s admission demands a congressional or criminal investigation. If he’s implying that military officials have pledged their armed support to him and the right-wing, those officials are guilty of treason. If Breitbart is lying, he’s diagnosable.” I’d agree. If (and that’s a big IF) he’s telling the truth, those “military officials” are supporting armed insurrection against the American government and its people. The military tends to frown on its members doing that. 

Watch the video of Breitbart’s remarks here. So, how long before Breitbart gets on Fox News and whines about it being taken out of context? Hoffa’s comment was taken out of context. This isn’t. This is talking about bullets v. ballot boxes and the bullets winning.

That’s an intelligent way to respond to random death threats, threaten to kill liberals in a bloody war. This is a very clear and very direct threat unlike any I’ve ever seen. Conservatives love to make gun and violence based political statements but yeah for the most part it’s just to rally the base, this however is something else, this is “I can’t wait till I can shoot a liberal that called me names with the military behind me.”

Scary shit.

This is a Signal Boost for a letter to Wordpress, asking them to uphold their own Terms of Service. Apparently the Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival has decided that the Festival should be “womyn born womyn” only, and is out to get transwomen who would love to be included.

Signal boost

this is so fucked up!!!!!!

yes, this is discursive violence.

the comments at gendertrender are awful, and i don’t think it’s worth putting energy into speaking to those horrible people.

is there anything folks can do? ‘cause wordpress seem to be doing nothing about this.

Really REALLY , between this and ROH i am really just sad

I will not engage with these trans exterminationist-minded people as being trans this doesn’t seem wise.  I am horribly disappointed in Wordpress.

1. Refrain from telling supporters that winning the election may require active exercise of their “second amendment” rights.

2. Refrain from suggesting it’s time for “armed revolution”, even if Thomas Jefferson once kinda sorta suggested that.

3. Refrain from holding political fundraisers focused around use of automatic weapons, especially target practices with initials, name or images of your political opponent.

4. Refrain from telling supporters you want them to be “armed and dangerous.”

5. Refrain from making campaign posters with opponent’s head in gun sights.

6. Refrain from saying that bullets will work if ballots don’t.

These all seem pretty reasonable, no? [Via TPM]

I’m 100% sure these all need to happen.

I know I’m just a gun-hater whose community was devastated by a mass shooting (the Virginia Tech massacre) but I really don’t think this is asking too much even of people who like guns.
