Executive Level PuSH'er Troll? You Make the Call.

Josh Horwitz, Executive Director of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV) posted a message on Huffpo:



That disappeared then a nasty little troll by the name of GritsJr left another minutes later:



Both comments went down the memory hole almost immediately but as well we all know, the internet never forgets. So is GritsJr so much of a sycophant that he posted a nearly word for word copy of JH's post just minutes later or is Joshie using a sockpuppet similar to our old friend "Macca" from the Brady's?

UPDATE1: Damage Control? Another post by Josh GritsJr scrubbed:



UPDATE2: Josh GritsJr really loves Josh:

Very interesting piece, and spot-on. These guys who carry guns out to political events and intimidate others with their shows of force are indeed degrading our democracy. For reference, look up how our Founders dealt with these types of thugs during Shay's Rebellion and the Whiskey Rebellion. They did not hesitate to act. Hopefully, the Obama administration will draw a line at some point, too.

And now he's upset w/ me.

Here's a few more pearls of wisdom from Josh "GritsJr":

Wayne LaPierre & Co. aren't patriots. They're would-be Timothy McVeighs who preach treason against our democracy……They are paranoid and pathetic.
The NRA is certainly encouraging people to blast away –
The Parker decision asserted an INDIVIDUAL right to insurrection, not a right of MILLIONS of individuals. The NRA and CATO are asserting exactly the same thing, and individual right to insurrection. That is how insane this is.
A lot of these guys think McVeigh had a point. And this is the mentality governing gun policy in our country right now.
It can't make any such case openly and honestly, and that is why it resorts to under-handed attacks that attack and manipulate well-meaning individuals, including actual victims and survivors of gun violence.
Heller is completely irrational, and that's probably a compliment. THIS is the guy who Scalia and his four justices changed the meaning of the amendment for? Wow.
Far from "patriots," guys like Glenn Beck and (chuck) Norris are in fact traitors who are openly advocating treason against our constitutional democracy.
Timothy McVeigh would have used Heller as a legal defense for his bombing of the Murrah Building
Anyone who believes that the gun lobby is being driven by liberals, moderates or minorities is delusional. It's a far right wing, white male-dominated movement that won a narrow 5-4 decision in the Roberts Court,
Are you maniacs inferring that the effort to renew the ban on assault weapons justifies the killing of police officers?
I've never met a progressive in my life who advocates for the NRA agenda, and I've met thousands of progressive over the course of my life.
Someone's been reading "The Turner Diaries" too much. Creepy...
Wayne LaPierre and Chris Cox don't believe any of this insane insurrectionist nonsense. But they're corrupt as hell and it sure sells lots of guns to people on the far right wing of American politics.
The gun industry has steadily over decades promoted an arms race between criminals and law enforcement.

Feel free to add your own and note any similarities, all just coincidental, I'm sure. Knowing the tendency towards 'Reasoned Discourse' among the gun grabber community, who knows how long the profile is going to last.

These are the leaders in the 'Gun Control' community.

Looks like LE45 nailed him. To be sure, we should look at writing style, punctuation style, grammer blah blah blah.

No fair--I want an "all of the above" option.

And he likes to pat himself on the back...

"You've got to love the blogs that Mr. Horwitz writes because the insane, conspiracy-laced comments make his case about the dangers of insurrectionism better than his own writing."

Excuse me, but does the writer have ANY idea of the definition of "to infer"?

I am not inferring anything, nor am I implying anything.

Offensive ad hominem attacks, blatant bigotry, and idiotic denial of the world around him aside, the sad thing is that if Horowitz had simply left the comment alone, taken credit for it himself, and run with it, I would at least grant that he has the nerve to stand up and take ownership of his words and the defense thereof.

As it is, however, this dirtbag is a spineless slug, too ashamed of his own words to let them stand with his name attached, and instead resorts to sock-puppettry.

And to think how offended the anti-rights nuts got concerning the Lott/Rosh situation....

Why is it these libtards cannot understand the fact that we're a Democratic REPUBLIC which is a LOT DIFFERENT than a pure "democracy" which is nothing less than tyranny by 51% over the other 49%?

"GritsJr" comment at Huff 'n' Puff Post:

“Ugly response to this blog on Mike "Break Their Windows" Vanderboegh's blog, Sipsey Street Irregulars:

http://sip­seystreeti­rregulars.­blogspot.c­om/2010/10­/living-in­-their-hea­ds-rent-fr­ee-with.ht­ml

Here is a sampling of some of the comments left there:

"Yes Mr Horowitz I do advocate the violent overthrow of the US government. I am a revolutionary and a radical right wing libertarian. If you continue to lie and push us in a corner you will actually get a first hand accounting of how violent we can be.

- Grenadier1"

"It's a shame, really, that Horwitz wasn't right next to the c**t, face down on the pavement, whimpering.

Here's hoping there's more of that soon.

- Pat H."”

No connection, I'm sure.
