So again we see that some Open Carriers in Texas are confirming the initial suspicions that they are just…assholes.
But first, allow me to show you this video of a NYPD officer behaving rather stupidly when he finds out he is being taped in a public space:
Not kosher, right? Public space, no expectation of privacy and getting that close to the person is just harassment. We have seen this before, we will see it again and it will always be wrong.
Now compare the video above with the actions of the Open Carriers in this next video:
Can you tell the difference? Who is the one behaving like a patriot and the one behaving like an asshole? I can’t. About the only redeeming grace is that the video appeared in MotherJones which is as influential in Middle America as Monday Night Cuban Communist party speeches.
The only thing these Open Carriers had to do was stand pretty, smile and wave. Apparently being polite is something akin to being weak among them and an attitude of “Kill Them All, let God Sort Them Out” is the prevalent attitude.
