Alabama “militiaman” and popular teabagger blogger Mike Vanderboegh calls for his followers to smash Democratic offices. Some are blaming him for the incidents that have already occurred.
“To all modern Sons of Liberty: THIS is your time. Break their windows. Break them NOW. If you wish to send a message that Pelosi and her party [that they] cannot fail to hear, break their windows. Break them NOW. Break them and run to break again. Break them under cover of night. Break them in broad daylight. Break them and await arrest in willful, principled civil disobedience. Break them with rocks. Break them with slingshots. Break them with baseball bats. But BREAK THEM.”
Man, he REALLY doesn’t want the federal government helping those in need, does he? Oh, except when that person in need is Mike Vanderboegh.
Vanderboegh said he once worked as a warehouse manager but now lives on government disability checks. He said he receives $1,300 a month because of his congestive heart failure, diabetes and hypertension. He has private health insurance through his wife, who works for a company that sells forklift products. Born in Michigan and raised in Ohio, Vanderboegh said he was not always a libertarian. He once was active in the Young Socialist Alliance and the Progressive Labor Party. “In my youth, I was a communist,” he said. But in the mid-1970s, Vanderboegh read Friedrich von Hayek’s “The Road to Serfdom,” among other books, and had an epiphany. “From that point on, I could never take Marxism-Leninism seriously again,” Vanderboegh said.
Vanderboegh is calling for an armed march on Washington DC next month. Overthrow those socialists! But OMG, Mike! What about YOUR FUCKING CHECK?
