The (Progressive) Zombie Taker Apocalypse is at hand according to noted conservative libertarian paranoid weapons hoarder Jeff G at Protein Wisdom, and be warned you slacker, government loving, things and stuff wanting, professional leftists, academics and other assorted leeches on the body politic, your time will come, and when it does there'll be hell to pay:

We now have dibs on “I told you so”– not with respect to the President or the professional left or even many in the media and academia, who have spent decades finessing history and massaging narratives and dumbing down the “masses” until they could seize this particular historical moment, to sabotage the last best hope on earth and turn it into just another socialist police state run by a permanent ruling class and its bureaucratic army (that is, them) — but with the useful idiots who they wooed and fooled and used to secure their power.   And though that’s cold comfort, at least it’s something to hold onto when it all goes pear shaped. [...]

Not being surprised at the coming collapse will hopefully give us an edge.

One other thing, and I’m serious about this:  consider some sort of identification, a kind of marker, that lets others of your kind know who you are and where you stand implicitly.  Get over your aversion to tattoos; a small “live free or die” or “don’t tread on me” somewhere on your person might just one day save your from the zombie hordes.  Hell. Use henna if you have to.  If you’re into irony, maybe a yellow Star of David sewn to your suit jacket.

Because make no mistake.  They’ll be coming.  They have to.  It’s just a matter of how long it takes before the revolution starts and the country divides into factions.  The takers have now voted themselves your labor and liberty.  But I suspect when it comes time to forcibly take it, that’s when the seriousness sets in. [...]

Be your own master.  Smile. Knowingly.  And wait.

Our time will once again come.

By all means go get yourself that tattoo so when the rebellion against the tyranny of - Blacks? Hispanics? Obamacare Death Panels? Married Gays? Vaginas? - comes you won't shoot your fellow travelers by mistake.  May I suggest you place that tattoo on your foreheads, just to be sure you recognize the "White Hats" who you come across traversing that barren, socialist  landscape in the last great war to reclaim America for the only people that matter: white make bloggers with fantasies of Armageddon.

Vive la Revolucion!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Good catch.

    In that culture, on the fringes, "zombies" are code for anyone you don't like.

    They use that word to replace words they can't use when having their fantasies about civil war.

    The paranoia in gun culture is rampant and baseless. I frequent the shooting range, and most of these people are scared shitless and wrong at the same time. Bad combination.

    BTW, I do think we are in danger of serious economic difficulty related to peak resources and global overshoot, but the solution is not shooting one another. The solution is community-based. The solution is helping one another. The solution is gardens, permaculture, conservation and sharing limited resources.

    I thought maybe this diary was going to be a review of the remake of "Red Dawn".  WTH were they thinking when that project got the nod?  Maybe the studio execs we in the thrall of Romney's "Russia is our #1 enemy" bizarro world view.

    But yeah, the survivalist gun nuts (correlation, if not causation) out there are head-shakingly strange folks.  They are the embodiment of selfishness.  "I've got mine and I'm taking yours at gunpoint if I have to."  

    Thing is, I don't begrudge preparedness for future calamity.  That part is basically a good thing; but they are so misguided about the nature of the most impending calamity as to be dangerous to others.  You want to be prepared for your own survival, fine; but when you cross the line into implicitly threatening aggression, your First and Second Amendment rights just stopped.
