Fail Quote of the Day: Vox Day on the right to commit murder

| »
Tucson shooting perpetrator Jared Loughner
Jared Loughner

From (yet again) Vox Day, commenting on the supposed spineless hypocrisy of people’s objections to violence against the US government:

Remember, the present U.S. government is asserting it has the right to assassinate American citizens without trial or even arrest, the U.S. Constitution notwithstanding. This naturally leads to the obvious question: if one accepts that the federal government possesses the right to murder Americans that it presently asserts, (and which is clearly not limited to it under the Constitution), on what rational grounds can anyone complain about individuals like Jared Loughner exercising exactly the same right?

Right. Because the logical and totally moral response to a tyrannical government declaring its own right to commit illegal acts is to open fire on government officials on-sight. Regardless of whether those being fired upon actually have anything to do with the US government’s crimes. Or whether any number of civilians and other innocent bystanders may be in the way.

But, remember, it’s atheists who are the immoral ones.
