Bullies getting their comeuppance is funny.
That made my day.
But the “he” in that statement above, John Cinque, is incredibly deluded:
“We’re winning this thing; we’re winning this thing hard here,” Cinque said, referring to the efforts to ignore unconstitutional and unlawful legislation that seeks to have citizens register their semi-automatic rifles and high capacity magazines.
“We’re Winning?” Only the Vichy regime thought it was “winning” when it cooperated with the tyrants.
“That’s the last thing we need,” he added, referring to violence.
“We’re going to try to throw water on this thing and get it calmed down …” Cinque said. “The whole premise of where Joe’s coming from has to be addressed, and now it has been … Now it’s time to calm it down …
“The problem now is, we have a forest fire burning, and we’ve got to see how we can go about extinguishing it,” he said.
Mr. Cinque is either naive or incredibly stupid if he can’t see that only by threatening violence have Connecticut residents had any level of success…even if it is just postponing the inevitable raids. Police are bullies and like all bullies they only respond to violence. You can’t negotiate with them. You can’t regulate them. You can’t even buy them off (permanently).
As long as they they fear the “people,” the “people” have a chance.
