What It’s Like To Be a Whiny Ass Mangina In America

01

“Everything is offensive, and scary, and yucky. I need a safe space!”


Well folks, it looks like the pussified, bearded girly-man Gersh Kuntzman did not receive enough hate, scorn and very well deserved ridicule after confessing to his lack of a spine in his blatant lie and error riddled piece “What is it like to fire an AR-15? It’s horrifying, menacing and very very loud.”  In that article, Kuntzman proclaimed:

“The recoil bruised my shoulder. The brass shell casings disoriented me as they flew past my face. The smell of sulfur and destruction made me sick. The explosions — loud like a bomb — gave me a temporary case of PTSD. For at least an hour after firing the gun just a few times, I was anxious and irritable.”

13502013_1220303251327461_9051182393102461445_nAfter that ridiculous piece was published, his inbox was so full of people pointing out the many lies and falsehoods in his article, and at the same time making fun of him, that he felt the need to write a follow up article discussing said feedback.  Two days later, he penned “To gun lovers, you can’t even have an opinion on assault rifles — unless it’s theirs. Here’s the proof“ in which he proudly, in a most non-manly fashion, publicly admitted that many 7 year old girls have more testicular fortitude than he does.  Aside from him completely demasculating himself quite publicly, and voluntarily, he also failed to miss the very obvious point made by so many people, that his liberal, leftist, anti-gun preconceptions about the AR-15 are the very reason he reacted to it like he did.  There is absolutely nothing menacing, overly loud and definitely not shoulder bruising about firing an AR-15.

Not surprisingly, the bearded beta male again received much public chastising as he became the subject of more than 50 memes that poked fun at his lack of even a shred of masculinity.

Well, it appears good old Gersh Kuntzman just can’t get enough negative attention.  Now the crybaby hipster doofus is complaining about the fact that the song “God Bless America” is being played during major league baseball games, and in doing so, he gratuitously proclaims that the song is “a song that offends everyone.”  No you sackless, spineless, whiny ass, crybaby, dickhead – it just offends you!  You and the other assholes like you: the leftist nitwits that want to disarm America and remove God from everything.

13432304_1220303461327440_2997353890868437881_nWhether or not you like the song, whether or not you agree with the reasoning for playing it, you really need to get it through that thick skull of yours; You do not speak for everyone!  In fact, based on the recent, near endless supply of hate/ridicule mail you received, it should be pretty clear to even the most dense of the dense, that you do not speak for even half of us.

Basing your premise, that “everyone” is offended by the song, on a non-scientific poll, conducted by an author, in order to prove a point for a book she was writing is hardly jury convincing evidence.  Throwing in that atheists “such as yourself” and foreigners dislike the song hardly comes as a shock.  Many foreigners do not like our country, and suggesting that a song about God offends those who want God removed from everything?  Gasp! No.Freaking.Way! </sarcasm>

Look cupcake, please, for your sake, quit trying to speak for the rest of America.  While your timid, testosterone lacking opinions may reflect that of the likeminded, bearded, man-bun wearing people you hang out with in Manhattan, those opinions do not remotely reflect that of a good portion of America.  Please, shut the hell up and go away!

Oh yeah, by the way, God Bless America!

Bring us your poor……yeah Diversity

 

Diversity-Embrace

The Sac Bee (commie rag) has been running this series over the last week about Afghani refugees and how tough they have it…..so each time I read one of these I think of all the times I have responded to calls in apartment complexes where I work. In many ways they are similar to the ones described in the reports……my take as an insensitive bastard? Go home if you don’t like it here.

Sacramento Bee “No Safe Place”

We have plenty of people to take care of (veterans for example) ……enough mentally ill people to fill a stadium and then there are the dirt bags……In my experience the Afghan men who come over and live in these shit hole apartments don’t assimilate to American culture they turn these complexes into makeshift villages and then try and game the system. They are not stupid people and they are not innocent victims….

There is an endless supply of domestic violence and child abuse in these refugee complexes; they prey on one another and then scream and cry when one of them becomes victimized. I work with a female partner most of the week, when we are dispatched to calls involving middle eastern men I know things will be rough. The majority of the men refuse to talk to my partner, they will not address her and if we determine a crime of domestic violence did indeed occur, there is often outrage when we take the male into custody.

Why do we (society) feel the need to try and swing the opinions of the public in such a way? If other cultures want to come to America, we will greet them with open arms, we will set them on a path to assimilate and become part of OUR culture. There is opportunity, there is freedom. We do not ask immigrants to lose their identity or culture but in order for this to work they must accept ours in return. There are no free rides, success is not given it is (like respect) earned. Are some of these “settlement programs” taking advantage of these people? Probably, since there is government involved there is fraud involved

I appreciate that some of these people have helped our troops, I am grateful for their assistance and I hope they can make a go at a better life, but it is not a free ride and it will not be easy. Do not for any minute take this as a rant against Afghani or Muslim people, it is not about race of any kind nor religion, it is simply me being tired of having multi-cultural diversity rammed down my throat. I get it “we are a nation of immigrants” now shut up, learn the language and the culture; become part of something bigger and better not a bunch of fractioned tribes trying to coexist independently in the same space. That is where you came from it didn’t work there it won’t work here. Europe has been trying to replicate the same thing, it doesn’t work and it won’t work. For society to function it needs to focus on the similarities of people and then (and only then) can it focus on the differences. Why is it so hard to put OUR culture first? We are not a bad people; we are not an evil nation.

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

The New Colossus- Emma Lazarus- 1883 01-statue-of-liberty-facts

We will do our part, but you need to do yours……Sacramento- good luck- between the Nazis, the Fascists, the gangs and the refugees you have your hands full.

Nazis, Liberals and hate Oh, my……

coexist-quotes-8
The more I read about this event in Sacramento yesterday, the more disturbing I find it. For anyone who missed the first post, a quick re-cap. On Sunday (6/26/16) a group of basically Neo-Nazis had a planned rally in front of the California State Capitol. The event was properly scheduled and the group had obtained the necessary permits to hold their event. Offended at the idea of a White Supremacist rally, a left leaning group planned a counter protest. Short of a bunch of yelling and screaming this really should be the end of the story, but it is just the beginning.

As the rally began the liberals of the counter protest began throwing rocks, chunks of concrete and swinging sticks injuring the Skin Heads and Neo Nazis who were holding a sanctioned event. Several people were injured, many were beaten and even stabbed. There were several Sacramento news stations there to cover the event and they were also attacked in the name of free speech……well free speech depending on what view you hold. One of the reporters (as shown at the end of the KCRA video) is assaulted by the leftist protesters because they don’t want a record of their actions. (protest at state capitol turns violent)

According to the articles I have read there have been no arrests made as a result of the incident.Cl5bJW5UsAAXF5X.jpg-large

Now I find myself in a very unsettling position, defending people for whom I have zero respect. To quote (sort of) Jake Ellwood, “I hate Sacramento Nazi’s”. However, even vile disgusting groups like Skin Heads and Nazis have the same first amendment rights as Black Lives Matter (BLM), Gay Pride, Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and La Raza. Contrary to the narrative not all Americans agree with what these groups have to say either. Like it or not everyone has an EQUAL right to free speech. Once we allow a selection of what is ok as free speech then it ceases to be FREE.

The spokes-hole for this group in Sacramento is a female who claims victory for her side because it is right, she says her group will use force to stop hate….umm what? She represents a group identified as BAM- By Any Means Necessary. I bet you would have a hard time counting all the coexist stickers on their cars. It was these “Pro-choice”, “Pro-gay”, “Pro-open border” “anti-gun” activists who perpetuated violence to stop free speech. I find myself wondering which side I dislike more at this point.
Fortunately, the media was there to set the record straight, a quick glance at the headlines should show us what happened:

• “AT LEAST 10 PEOPLE INJURED AT CALIFORNIA RALLY, AUTHORITIES SAY”- CNN
• “10 INJURED DURING WHITE NATIONALIST PROTEST IN SACRAMENTO”- THE NEW YORK TIMES
• “TRUMP SUPPORTING NEO-NAZIS STAB 5 PEOPLE AT PROTEST IN SACRAMENTO” POLITICUS USA
• “MULTIPLE PEOPLE STABBED AT NEO-NAZI RALLY IN SACRAMENTO” ZERO HEDGE
• “CALIFORNIA POLICE INVESTIGATING VIOLENT CLASH AT SACRAMENTO WHITE SUPREMACIST RALLY” RAW STORY
• “AT LEAST 10 HURT AT CHAOTIC, BLOODY NEO-NAZI RALLY AT CAPITOL” THE SACRAMENTO BEE

Wait, why do all these headlines sound different than what was reported? None of these headlines reflect the facts. They all sound like the hate mongering Nazi’s attacked peaceful protestors in an angry rage. Watch the news videos, read the local reports of what happened. The left leaning “My way or the highway” crowd, threw chunks of concrete, they damaged the state capitol building and injured people. I have no doubt the Nazi crowd, once provoked, fought back, but none of this changes the fact that the villainous White Supremacist hate filled Nazi’s were actually the victims.

EQUAL means EQUAL you spoiled little morons. This is the result of failed leadership, plain and simple. For the past 8 years, Americans have been divided, labeled and pitted against

1402483_1280x720one another all in the name of collecting votes. From welfare to immigration there has been a shameless segregation of Americans in order to continue one party rule.

California is the king of one party rule. You need look no further than this dysfunctional liberal pit of cronyism to see what does not work. The infrastructure of the California is disintegrating at an alarming rate. They built a brand new bridge in the San Francisco Bay Area, it is already in danger. It ran BILLIONS over budget and it is leaking and rusting in places where is shouldn’t. who is responsible? I have no idea because everyone is pointing fingers at someone else.

There is a new money suck of a project called the “High Speed Rail”. The idea is a bullet train to connect Northern and Southern California. The voters asked for it 2008 and to date nothing has been built but they have spent over $600 million of a projected $68 Billion…. meanwhile roads deteriorate and the homeless fill the streets. Proposition 47 has been covered many times on this page so I won’t go into that.np05v

Slogans of acceptance litter the freeways on larger than life billboards. “Build Schools not Prisons”, “Health Happens when we Dream Together”, “Hugs not Hate”….well unless you are on the wrong side of an opinion then it is a brick to the skull for you.

How have we come to this? When did peace and love become “coexist or I will bash your fucking head in”? We are a broken society and we need to fix ourselves. We can no longer afford to stand by while politicians divide and conquer by turning us against each other. We cannot allow angry children to distort the constitution because they are uncomfortable with true equality. We cannot give our freedoms up one at a time because we are afraid.

Facebook Censoring Conservatives

facebook_censors_md

Even though they say they don’t…

So, this morning I posted a direct link to a YouTube video, and I commented quite a bit when I shared it. After 42 minutes, it had only been seen by 61 people. That is some serious BULLSHIT post metering there! Notice the commentary I included, and how much of what I said is counter the liberal, leftist crap that Zuckerberg and Facebook administrators like to push.

McclintockTest-01

Then, as an experiment, I shared an article in which the same video is featured, and I included very minimal commentary, in fact almost none. In that same time frame, it was seen by more than 10X the number of people than the other post. In 47 mins, it had been viewed by 741 people.

McclintockTest-02

Tell me again how Facebook is not censoring what is shared… Tell my how their algorithms are not limiting the exposure of conservative speech…

Screw Facebook!!!!!!

To that end, we here at Deputy Matt & Others Who Serve recently set up a group Twitter account.  If you are tired of missing things we post due to FB post metering (censorship) then please join us over on Twitter where you will happily receive anything we send out.
-Matt


UPDATE:  Even now, more than 3 hours since the original video was posted, and only 2 hours since the second experimental post was made, the number of people who have seen the first post is barely into triple digits, while the other post with minimal (ie: generic) intro is still continuing well beyond 10x the number of views.

Your Liberty Offends Me…..

I want what you have, I want your lifestyle, I want your money and your stuff. I want equaIMG_1513lity and respect all without putting forth the effort for either. Capitalism is a disease that has corrupted our society as people strive for wealth and fame….I would like to talk about it more but Kim K is on at 3. I need a new smart phone, this one takes crappy selfies.

Minimum wage is bullshit, I’m worth $15 an hour…..except, well I’m not coming in today because I have a friend who is in emotional crisis and we need to go talk over coffee, you understand. You can’t fire me I have rights. Employers are just greedy they have so much money they can afford to give me more, its all part of wall street.

If you don’t give me the things I demand then I will burn and break stuff that doesn’t belong to me because that is fair. If I can’t have what you have then I will ruin it for everyone. Oh, wait is that Kanye West?  I need to go climb on this car to get a better view.

Kanye-West-NYC-concert-DX

I hate the cops, they are power hungry animals who slaughter young black people. Nothing more than part of the establishment. Why wont they work security for Beyonce? She deserves it. I can’t be bothered with trying to talk to my landlord, call the cops and make them deal with it. What do you mean you wont help me officer? I CALLED YOU! I know I was speeding but I AM IN A HURRY, I HAVE TO BE SOMEWHERE.

When did “We the people” become “ME the people”? Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness has turned into “your life at the expense of our liberty and my happiness”…..  Is this really revolution or just heartburn? It sounds more like a temper tantrum. A nation of whiny little victims is what we have become. Soft in our complacency, distracted by shiny objects and controlled by the endless onslaught of social media.

All these larger than life social issues seem to assault our senses every single day…..an endless march of progressive siren songs demanding our attention. A new voice has mixed with an old voice to offer “A Future to Believe in”. A fresh idea, a new way to look at fixing a corrupt and rigged system. We need a revolution to bring the country back to its senses…..You say you want a revolution? Maybe a socialist revolution? What would that look like?

1.Abolition of property in land and application of all rest of land to public purposes.
2.A heavy progressive or graduated income tax. (Tax the rich)
3.Abolition of all right of inheritance (redistribute the wealth)
4.Centralization of credit in the hand of the State, by means of a national bank with State capital and exclusive monopoly (put Wall St. under total control of the Government)
5.Centralization of the means of communication and transport the hands of the State (Government mass transit, delivery etc—-bullet trains for the masses)
6.Equal liability of all to labor. Establishment of industrial armies
7.Free education for all.

61059

Sound familiar? Nearly all of this has been addressed in some form by the “Future to Believe in” campaign as well as the “Fighting for Us” crowd. Would it shock you to know I pulled that list directly from the Communist Manifesto? It all worked out pretty well for the communists…

America is currently a divided, compartmentalized labeled mess. The people of this amazing country have been divided and subjugated without most of them even realizing it. Their “freedom” is at the will of the state. Welfare and entitlement programs over the last 50 years have done almost nothing to lift people out of poverty. The social engineering of the 20th century has left us more divided than ever. The march for equality has left a wasteland of fractured communities dependent on government kindness.

We are assaulted each and everyday with our differences. Different colors, different races, different orientations, different incomes blah blah blah blah….. Haves and have nots, income inequality. So what is the solution? I for one certainly am not looking for the government to come in make it all fair. History is laced with the ruins of government “fairness”.

The Liberals on the left tell us they can fix everything by spreading the wealth. I recently read a book titled “The Conservative Heart” by Arthur C. Brooks. In a section on Social Justice, Brooks breaks down the two sides as:

“The left generally espouses the idea of ‘redistributive fairness.’ Liberals argue that beyond some unspecified limit, an uneven distribution of income is unfair on its face, and so promoting social justice means using government to promote greater financial equality for its own sake.” (sound familiar?)

“Conservatives, on the other hand, champion ‘meritocratic fairness.’ We believe that real fairness means that everyone should have abundant opportunity to pursue their happiness, and that — above a reasonable safety net for the the truly indigent — reward should follow hard work and merit”

51TEra2M4IL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_

The poor are divided and told they can’t do anything because they are poor. They are labeled and placed into voter groups, who have been voting the same way for over 50 years only to see their status quo get worse. The solution? Sub-divide them some more.

Liberals continue to further break down the divisions, creating smaller and louder groups of oppressed people demanding action, demanding something…….more. Through this division they gain power, they stir up the hate. If you speak ill of any of these subdivisions you are labeled a hateful-racist. You are against illegal immigration? You hate Mexicans. You have a problem with gender neutral bathrooms? You are a hateful hater. Never mind that these are not new issues.

I am not a bigot because I want to control my country’s borders. I am not a homophobe/transphobe because I don’t want to hear about what bathroom someone wants to use, and I am not a 1%’er because I work my ass off every single day to have a comfortable life, and neither are most Americans. We want simplicity, we want opportunity and we want the ability to follow our ambitions. We don’t want an omni-present government nanny looking into every aspect of our lives. We don’t need to be regulated out of our freedom. We don’t need to be labeled as anything other than Americans. My simpleton view of the country? Don’t be an asshole to people. Treat each other with respect and dignity. In my world “Equal means Equal”. I don’t care what color your skin is or what your biological plumbing is. If you immigrated to this country you did so for a reason, now step up and fight for what your new country stands for, while proudly celebrating where you came from. I have said it many times before……”We are Americans first”. If you find a better system, then by all means go. Denmark is appealing? Go for it, I’m sure they will welcome you with open arms. France, Switzerland, Canada? Why not.

thomas_jefferson_quote_2I agree the diversity of our nation allows us insight and a broader view, however, it is our oneness that makes us strong.  I am tired of being told I am a bigoted by-product of white privilege because I want everyone to play by the same rules. So speak up, you can call for hope and change, but when I don’t agree with you, that is not an invitation for mayhem. It simply means I don’t agree with you. We can have differing opinions and still get along. I applaud your right to speak out, to seek change as you see fit. I will continue to fight and support your right to have ideas I don’t agree with. In return you need to respect my values and my ethics with the same passion I protect yours. Once the screaming stops, we need to learn to live together for a common good, a common goal…..Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

Your Liberty is your right as an American, use it wisely.

A Piece of the Pie

13346609_1211916378832815_3716095824084408274_n

Here is a great example of what America can still offer those who are willing to work for it.

While traveling along the northern coastal roads of California I encountered a positive piece of American accomplishment in a place where I least expected it. A simplistic desire revealed pure through old fashion pride and sweat. Something I had forgotten through all of the negativity towards this Country quickened my slumbering step and refilled a pint of hope missing from my glass.

God bless anyone who can find a measure of freedom in a society where the walls corner us all a bit to close.

Two men and two Shepard dogs free born in this blessed country were herding goats. Approximately four hundred of the delightful animals grazed beautiful grounds burgeoning with growth and all parties received payment for their troubles. To dismiss the event as simple or common would be to veil the truth of realized freedom.

My appreciation for what I witnessed doesn’t take into account any Shepard metaphors or a grand duality of meaning. It was merely wonderful to bear witness to something which might otherwise be taken for granted. Freedom and the American Spirit as it was intended occurred in real time right in front of me. What exactly does herding goats have to do with a free market, entrepreneurialism, capitalism or the Pursuit of Happiness?

Those four hundred goats were bred by the two men so that they could eventually sell them and make a profit. All animals need to feed though so why not get paid for that too? Goats are brought to various landmarks simply to graze. The action feeds the goats without the need for purchasing specific refined or purposed foods and helps to keep things “organic” if you will. The men are paid through various contracts to trim back overgrown government owned lands which saves the tax payers from having to spend inordinate amounts of money for other less natural remedies. Wait a minute, I can hear the screams of protest and so I am thrust into the seat of Devils Advocate.

Is it cruel to transport the goats on a large truck to various landmarks across Northern California? I don’t know, the goats did not make their protests clear to me although they seemed quite nourished when I spoke with them. Does this take away from possible high paying jobs that humans could do? Why are goat herders being paid to do a job when someone could be paid prevailing wage to handle the overgrowth with weed eaters, lawnmowers or some of those big scissor things? I don’t know, the Goats seemed quite good at the job and appeared to be enjoying themselves while getting fatter, so even they partook in a piece of the American Dream. Perhaps a competition could be held to determine who the more productive workers are and we could witness the results for ourselves. Goat Versus Man.

The beautiful thing is two men and two sheep dogs were crafty and hard working enough to find a natural, healthy and cheap solution to fire suppression in some of our protected parks. These men pursued what made them happy and got paid to do work they found fulfilling and enjoyable, like any good profession these men were proud. It is times like this when I am thankful for men and women who think outside of the box and somehow make all of the bureaucratic red tap work for them instead of against them.

Thank you gentlemen and dogs for this great reminder of freedom, I wish you success, wealth and happiness. Working men such as you shall ultimately restore this country to greatness. Do not let anyone diminish your work because it is the heart of an American independence that I still believe in. Perhaps this country is not doomed. Sometimes we do not look in the right places for our values where they might exist right in front of us.

Whose Side Are They On?

ms13

The California State Assembly yesterday, June 2, 2016, voted on and passed Assembly Bill 2298, titled Criminal Gangs.  On the surface, the name of the bill would have you thinking it has something to do with cracking down of criminal gangs, but that is far from the truth.  Honestly, reading this bill, it makes me want to start investigating the author and sponsors for ties to criminal gangs.  And yes, I am being dead serious.

Why do I say that?  Here is an excerpt from the bill that summarizes the purpose of the bill:

“This bill would require the notice described above to be provided to an adult before designating a person as a suspected gang member, associate, or affiliate in the (criminal gang) database.”

That is the whole purpose of this bill, to notify adult criminal gang members that they have been identified as a gang member by law enforcement.  You know, because that could not possibly foul up any potential criminal investigations or anything…

Honestly, I cannot for the life of me come up with a single, logical reason that you would intentionally make the cops notify a gang member that that have been identified as a gang member.

So, that is the bill.  Let us take a look at who supported the bill and voted YES to pass it:

Ayes: Atkins (D), Bloom (D), Bonilla (D), Bonta (D), Brown (D), Burke (D), Calderon (D), Campos (D), Chau (D), Chu (D), Cooley (D), Dababneh (D), Daly (D), Eggman (D), Cristina Garcia (D), Eduardo Garcia (D), Gatto (D), Gipson (D), Gomez (D), Gonzalez (D), Gordon (D), Gray (D), Roger Hernández (D), Holden (D), Irwin (D), Jones-Sawyer (D), Levine (D), Lopez (D), Low (D), McCarty (D), Medina (D), Mullin (D), Nazarian (D), Quirk (D), Ridley-Thomas (D), Santiago (D), Mark Stone (D), Thurmond (D), Ting (D), Weber (D), Wood (D), Rendon (D)

Well, now there’s a shock!  It was passed by the criminal coddling Democrats…  Can you see my shocked face?

You will notice, not a single Republican voted for this bill.  In fact, several Democrats actually voted against it along with ALL of the Republicans.  Take a look at the NO votes for yourself:

Noes: Achadjian (R), Travis Allen (R), Arambula (D), Baker (R), Bigelow (R), Brough (R), Chang (R), Chávez (R), Cooper (D), Dahle (R), Dodd (D), Frazier (D), Beth Gaines (R), Gallagher (R), Grove (R), Harper (R), Jones (R), Kim (R), Lackey (R), Linder (R), Maienschein (R), Mathis (R), Mayes (R), Melendez (R), O’Donnell (D), Obernolte (R), Olsen (R), Patterson (R), Salas (D), Steinorth (R), Wagner (R), Waldron (R), Wilk (R), Williams (D)

Now, you have to stop and ask yourself, “what public good could come from notifying adult criminal gang members that they have been identified as criminal gang members by law enforcement?”  Me, I’ve got nothing.  What I do see is yet one more attempt by the leftist idiots running California to coddle the criminal element thus putting the public at greater risk, just like they did with AB 109, and just like they did with Prop 47.

If you have an ounce of brain power, this should at least make you stop and wonder “Whose side are they on?”

Add Another Business to the “Never Shop There” List

Displays

So today, a friend of mine, who happens to be an EMS worker and very pro-cop, and a page administrator at the Facebook page Inside the Fire: A Page for First Responders, was cruising a local mall, the Colonie Center in Albany, NY, and just killing some time.  He wandered into a small gift shop called the Gift Emporium, located on the lower level of the mall.  As he looked around, he noticed something that stood out to him on the shelves of commemorative figurines from varying professions.  What stood out was that all of the military member figurines holding shotguns had their guns pointed at the heads of the police officer figurines.

These were not figurines that were manufactured in that pose, they were separate figurines that had been placed like this, and it was repeated on the shelves.  You can clearly see the figurines and the placement in the photos he took (see below).  As you can see, these are different figurines as in one photo, both the military figure and the cop have a manufacturer tag attached to their leg and in the other photo, it is only the military figure that has a manufacturer tag tied to his boot.

13310426_1073986739307403_33207233577697057_n

13330987_1073986612640749_282998455702955498_n

Being more than a bit disturbed by this, he approached a female employee and asked about the display.  Her response to him was:

“That’s the way it should be.”

After receiving that reply, he turned and walked toward the exit.  As he left the business, the same female employee said:

“Cop-sucker”

So, not only is the employee outwardly hostile towards law enforcement, she is also very derogatory of someone who disagrees with her views.  Sounds like a fantastic employee who represents her employer well!

If you support law enforcement, I recommend contacting the business and let them know what you think about the display and their company’s representative.  Their contact information can be found here.  Also, please share this to spread the word.
