Sipsey Street Sissyman

Remember when the wingnutosphere erupted in outrage back in aught-nine over a DHS report on the rise of rightwing extremist groups? They nicknamed Homeland Security Director Janet Napolitano “Big Sis” and wondered how she could have the effrontery to imply that white Americans could be a terrorist threat when obviously Ground Zero Victory Mosque builders are the REAL enemies.

Well, maybe we should change Napolitano’s nickname to “Cassandra” now that yet another wingnut terrorism plot has been foiled. Four gun-tonguing militia morons were rounded up today for a crackpot scheme to assassinate government officials and unleash biological agents in US cities, including Atlanta. And they were inspired by the same vicious jackass and Fox News guest who once exhorted readers to oppose the healthcare reform law by vandalizing Democratic politicians’ offices.

Four alleged members of a Georgia militia group were arrested yesterday relating to their alleged plot to kill numerous government officials. According to the complaint, one of the arrested repeatedly cited as the source of their plan the novel Absolved, authored by Fox News expert Mike Vanderboegh.

The Fox News account of the incident curiously lacks any reference to Vanderboegh’s frequent appearances on the network and calls his hate-blog a “whistleblower website.” Vandenboegh’s response to the arrests is what we’ve come to expect from craven armchair warriors when their relentless online hate-mongering suddenly has 3-D consequences (see Geller, Pam): It wasn’t meeeee! Bullies and cowards, the lot of them.

I’m always a bit amazed there aren’t more of these pundit-agitators who don’t have a bit more pride in their ability to motivate rednecks into terrorism. You don’t hear Al Qaeda mumbling “Wasn’t us, man, we were out here smoking” when one of their minions blows up a building—why are guys like Vandenboegh so wimptastic?

Any remote-controlled vibrators involved?

What about white top hats and tails?

This should get some interesting replies:

Come on, at least have the balls to acknowledge that whipping people into a nihilistic frenzy might have consequences. Either stand by your words or just admit that you’re full of crap.

Mr. Sipseyguy is quite conversant in that particular form of wingnut wacko-speak known as: Lookit me, Ima big tough guy with plenty of gunswagger.  Oh, I’m also the most aggrieved, put up, tormented victim in the whole world, wah!  Mommy! 

From SipseyGuy’s Hey-don’t-look-at-me apologia:

There is nothing in there about ricin, or terrorist attacks on civilians (unless you count the forces of the federal government)

Yes, what could the forces of the federal government possibly find objectionable about that?

Lordy, that poster is full o’ tasty win.

or terrorist attacks on civilians (unless you count the forces of the federal government)

The Postman Always Blows Up Your House Twice.

The parenthetical phrase PROVES that some people really couldn’t StFu to save their miserable lives.

I see the camo… but I’m having a hard time finding the ‘thin’...

Holy god. I checked out Vanderboegh’s “inspirational” e-book, and it’s about as turgid an example of cordite porn as you’ll ever find. No wonder it gave the old farts in Toccoa their first non-chemically-assisted boner in a decade!

Here’s a sample, in which our avenging hero (who lives on Sipsey Street in Alabama—just like the name of Vanderboegh’s blog—what a coinkydink!) kills dozens of ATF agents:

By the time Phil had emptied the magazine, the entire first stack of the raid party, save one, was dead or dying. Some of the tungsten steel AP handloads had penetrated two thugs at once. Night vision devices splintered, kevlar helmets split, the trauma plates of their body armor were fractured and holed and their illusions of invincibility were swept away along with their sorry lives.

[snip]

Well, they got me. But then he laughed, realizing that it was really just a self-inflicted, John Kerry kind of wound. But how many have I killed? More than a dozen anyway, maybe two dozen.

Not enough. Not enough by half.

Gotta be more if I’m gonna to make the point so everybody gets it.

Apparently it goes on like that for another 36 chapters. So many loving descriptions of holes and penetrations! Nothing remotely Freudian going on there!

This is the person the “straight news” sector of Fox calls an “online journalist.” But hey, it’s only fiction, you guys! Vanderboegh is no more responsible for those kooks in Georgia than he was for the kooks who followed his explicit instructions and vandalized Gabby Giffords’ office before some other lunatic shot her in the head.

I’m Shocked, Shocked I Tell Ya Dept:  Two of the 4 conspirators got a paycheque from the government.

From CNN:

According to one of the affidavits, Crump formerly worked for a contractor doing “maintenance type services” at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta.

The U.S. Agriculture Department verified Adams formerly worked at the Agriculture Research Service as a lab technician, an affidavit says.

MaryRC, you will also be shocked to learn that Vanderboegh has sufficient leisure to serve as the wingnut militia’s answer to Anwar al-Awlaki because he receives a government disability check. Jayzus. If we could convert teabagger hypocrisy into currency, we could pay off the US national debt, set the EU aright and feed Somalia. Then they could rightly accuse us of mooching off the producers…

Apparently it goes on like that for another 36 chapters.

Fuck me. There’s writer’s-blocked hyper-emo NaNoWriMo yammering that reads better than that.

But how many have I killed? More than a dozen anyway, maybe two dozen.

Our hero didn’t collect their ears so he could have an accurate tally? Wimp!

I can’t remember where I read it, but the definition of a truly stupid criminal is one who can’t understand that there will ALWAYS be more cops.

The SissyFuss of SippyCup Street takes stupid to a new level by believing there’s are any significant differences between federal and local cops.

If we could convert teabagger hypocrisy into currency, we could pay off the US national debt, set the EU aright and feed Somalia.

And we’d have the only currency that whines like a cranky toddler. That would eliminate the counterfeiting problem overnight.

And yes, Vanderboegh has form when it comes to incitement:

Gentlemen, raise your bricks….

At last count five different Democratic Party offices have been attacked with bricks or stones.

Supposedly, Mike Vanderboegh; a militiaman, is at least partially responsible for these acts of violence. This man was profiled on Rachel last night; very intriguing gentleman. There are a number of relevant sites out there for us to examine in an attempt to get the full story.

Rachel Maddow demonstrated rather forcefully that Mike Vanderboegh has a history in what I call the ‘Militia Movement’.

She alleged Mike Vanderboegh initiated the calls for people all over the country to attack Democratic offices and headquarters with bricks. And that is what happened. TPM has logged five such incidents. I noted this yesterday.

TPM from March 2010 has a lot more.

Vanderboegh has sufficient leisure to serve as the wingnut militia’s answer to Anwar al-Awlaki because he receives a government disability check

Oh that’s different.  That was his money and he’s entitled to it.  It’s those other lazy no-good welfare queens and strapping young bucks that are sponging off hard-working taxpayers.
