An Open Letter to Gary Marbut

by lizard

Hey Gary!

I thought about writing you a letter today, because I think there might be an exciting opportunity for you. I know some people think you are a terrible, horrible, gun-crazed fanatic who would exploit the violent death of children to further your agenda, but I think that’s an unfair characterization.

These tragedies get consumed and spit back at us in all sorts of awful ways by the media and those obscene carneys referred to as “politicians”. Your zealous advocacy is a convenient target for those on the other side of the political gridiron, people who need people like you, so they don’t have to think about their guy blowing up children in Yemen.

The opportunity I envision is an op-ed where you remain steadfast in your vigorous defense of the right to take down the federal government through force of arms own guns, but, and this is just a suggestion, make one small acknowledgement: saying shit like this is unacceptable:

“When the top AP Nazis end up floating face down in the river, they will think twice about f***ing with real Americans.”

“We need to track down and publish the names and addresses of AP executives, photographs of their children and the routes they take to school.”

I get being frustrated with media (like allowing an intern a front page story where she can’t even get basic facts right and conflates two unrelated stories), but these reported threats against AP reporters for attempting to access what use to be public information about concealed carry permit holders, threats that reference innocent children, that is clearly over the line.

So take a stand, Gary, and show your detractors that you possess a smidgen of reasonable awareness that some things are just wrong.

    Why stop with the publication of CCP holders?

    How about Medical Marijuana users? DUI offenders? Welfare recipients? AIDS test applicants?

    Or, how bout minding your own f’ing business?

    The one thing that Marbut and I can agree on is this:

    “We will not go gently . . .”
    This is no small thing, to restore a republic after it has fallen into corruption. I have studied history for years and I cannot recall it ever happening. It may be that our task is impossible. Yet, if we do not try then how will we know it can’t be done? And if we do not try, it most certainly won’t be done. The Founders’ Republic, and the larger war for western civilization, will be lost.

    But I tell you this: We will not go gently into that bloody collectivist good night. Indeed, we will make with our defiance such a sound as ALL history from that day forward will be forced to note, even if they despise us in the writing of it.

    And when we are gone, the scattered, free survivors hiding in the ruins of our once-great republic will sing of our deeds in forbidden songs, tending the flickering flame of individual liberty until it bursts forth again, as it must, generations later. We will live forever, like the Spartans at Thermopylae, in sacred memory.

    That was very agile, Liz. I didn’t think you could work Obama hatred into a post about Marbut, but you did!

      Par for the course, I’ve yet to understand the Liz mans schtick. He’s against everything espoused by everyone and really hasn’t come up with an alternative.

      That’s the beauty of trolling on the intrawebs, a few people will take you seriously, in his case it’s not many but for the present freedom of speech is in order. Rock on LIz.

  4. If I were conspiracy minded, I would point out that the quickest way to up the hit-counts of a website in the state of Montana is to go after Gary Marbut. I agree completely with your thesis, Lizard. But I have had a few too many people tell me that nothing is ever what it seems in presentation.

    I wonder if anyone has bothered to ask the current Governor and former Democrat AG if he ever received any requests for the same information and if so, what he did? Perhaps the AP asking is not an isolated incident in Montana history. I have never heard of the information being released to any of the press, but was the AP’s request truly the 1st ever request in Montana?
