This is pretty awesome. The
Coalition Cult to Stop Gun Violence Ownership went through their old tweets and pulled out 13 tweets that hurt their feelings. Al la Jimmy Kimmel, they made a “Mean Tweets” video. Of the 13 tweets, three were from me. No one else got more than one! I am the KING OF @CSGV MEAN TWEETS!!!
Well there’s only one way to respond to that.
Let’s take a look at my “Mean Tweets.”
So @CSGV, U never answered. I U suffered rectal trauma from an unfortunate dildo accident, would U try to ban dildos? If not, why not?

Ahh, this one hurts. A typo killed it. If I had known that it would be used in a Mean Tweets video more than two years later, I’d have been more careful to make sure I wrote “If U” rather than “I U.” I note that they still haven’t answered the question. They try to ban guns, and they point to unfortunate accidents. So what other kinds of accidents merit the full on ban treatment? Or are guns “different?”
It was a joy to my heart to hear Joshie crack up when he had to read me calling him The Oompa Loompa of #GunControl. Couldn’t they have gotten him a box to stand on? Look how short the Oompa Loompa is!

This was a funny one. Barry Snell wrote a rather thoughtful article about guns in his college newspaper. He was attacked by CSGV for, in their minds, “Threatening to kill those who disagree with him on guns.” What he actually said was
You anti-gunners out there will lead us down a path you do not want to go down. Your lack of care and understanding of those who abide by America’s oldest and deepest-rooted tradition will cause a social rift in this country of the likes we have never seen in America’s young history. Your lack of understanding chances causing a civil war — a civil war that will be far worse, more acrimonious, more prolonged and more deadly than the last one.
Hardly a threat of murder. But CSGV isn’t known for their careful attention to facts, logic, or sense. Check out Barry’s Twitter exchange with them.
I remembered a photo that John Richardson posted. The CSGV people dressed up on hoodies in “solidarity” with Trayvon Martin. Check out the computer in the background. It still has a floppy drive. That doesn’t speak to an organization that is only in 2012 getting around to replacing their old Dell computer. That’s why I suggested that the only things Barry Snell could get out of a libel suit against CSGV was some old computers and Ladd’s chin fuzz.
There’s nothing like knowing that your political enemies spent hours pouring over tweets more than two years old to pick out the ones that hurt their feelings the most. It’s hours they won’t ever get back. We gun rights people do this for free. We waste our own free time mocking the fools who want to disarm us. And now they’ve wasted so hours responding via YouTube, hours they won’t be able to use to come up with effective ways of banning our guns.
But then I’ve long said that the REAL job of CSGV was to con their donors out of enough money to pay Ladd and Josh’s mortgage payments. They’ve got to protect their phony baloney jobs.
UPDATE: Another “Mean Tweeter” @Minutemaniac weighs in.
