Boomerwaffen is activating.
They are ride or die and ready to roll out as soon as the Big Orange Man gives the signal.
Unfortunately, they don’t understand the rules of this game that we’ve learned over the last several years, and they are going out there and saying what they really think on social media.
Everyone needs to understand: they are watching all of us. If you have a position of influence, you need to hold that position. Losing a police chief job because you couldn’t control yourself on social media is unacceptable.
A small-town Arkansas police chief is out of a job this week after letting his MAGA rip on social media on Friday night, advocating for violence against Democrats in response to baseless claims they were stealing the presidential election.
Lang Holland, the police chief of Marshall, Ark., shared the posts on Parler, a Twitter-like app popular among and targeted toward conservatives (yes, someone found a way to make something even worse than Twitter). Among the posts was a meme likening the 2020 election to the Revolutionary War.
“Death to all Marxist Democrats,” Holland wrote on Friday, under his own name and likeness. “Take no prisoners leave no survivors!!”
“When this is over and Trump is president for 4 more years. Do not go to sleep. Do not forget what these Marxist Democrat bastards have tried to do,” Holland wrote in another post. “When you see one in public get in their face do not give them any peace. Throw water on them at restaurants. Push them off sidewalks. Never let them forget they are traitors and have no right to live in this Republic after what they have done.”
The posts were so far-right spicy they trickled out to more mainstream social media platforms, like Reddit and Twitter. It likely didn’t help that Holland had already made news this year for publicly criticizing Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R) for issuing a mask mandate for the state in July.
Holland defied the order and said he wouldn’t enforce it. He also implied that following the public safety protocol would lead to the United States decline into a “failed communist state” according to KATV.
According to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, Mayor Elliott called Holland into his office on Saturday to explain the violent posts. Holland, a decorated war vet whom Elliott once praised as the “best police chief that I’ve ever seen” and “very, very United States” apologized and offered his immediate resignation.
“The City of Marshall strongly condemns the actions of Mr. Holland in his posts to social media,” Elliott wrote in a letter on Saturday. “The Marshall community does not in any way support or condone bullying or threats of violence to anyone of any political persuasion…the Marshall Police force is here to serve and protect EVERYONE.”
Holland is far from the only Trump supporter having a hard time with the election results. As the Post noted, former Trump chief strategist Stephen Bannon was booted from Twitter last week after he called for violence against Dr. Anthony Fauci, the top infectious-disease expert in the country. Donald Trump Jr., in a furious final bid to receive a father’s love for just once in his life, suggested his dad should wage “total war” over the election.
We all get the thing, okay?
Every single MAGA person is on board, they are ride or die. There is no need to spell it out like this and get crushed for doing so.
“Keep your powder dry,” as they say.
All of us are ready to roll out when Trump tells us to, and it is looking more and more like he’s going to tell us to. Firing Defense Secretary Esper – a man who said it was illegal for the President to release troops onto the street – was a very good sign and a big signal.
Everything is going to be a lot easier if we have people in positions like sheriff, police chief, and other local government positions.
Please spread this story to as many boomers as possible. There are a lot of boomers in positions of influence that are ready for war, and if they feel a need to signal that, they need to do it without saying “we’re going to start killing people.”
