When the Going Gets Tough, The Bloody Shirt Wavers Get Weird

Moms Demand Mayors Against Illegal Action on Guns. Or something like that. (courtesy usatoday.com)

“Moms Demand Action has teamed up with Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns Action Fund, placing an ad on the homepage of Thursday’s USA Today website, calling for signatures to a petition to ‘declare your independence from gun violence,'” politico.com reports. “More than 85,000 people have signed the petition as of Thursday.” Bullshit. MDA was created by a media maven for media mavens, despite the group’s indisputable inability to physically assemble a group larger than a quilting bee. If I were a blogger, I’d demand that Moms Demand Action submit proof of that number. Oh wait. Anyway, there’s another non-group out there using similar tactics (i.e. getting children to wave the bloody shirt) . . .

Next week, members of MomsRising will go to Capitol Hill with their children dressed in cow costumes to deliver small cow toys to Senators with the message that they should not be “cowed” by the gun lobby and to get “moo-ving” on gun policy.

Who dat? Strangely the group’s website and Facebook Page don’t say word one about the people behind their pun-based civilian disarmament campaign. And yet the media eats it up. Go figure.

    As I said in another forum, I suppose sheep costumes would be a little too accurate.

    1. avatar In Memphis says:

      I would donate the costumes for free if they did that.

        Cattle. Sheep. Both are easily led astray and easily killed by a wolf.

    I am a connoisseur of stupid puns, and those are just fcking terrible.

    1. avatar Derrick says:

      I was hoping “cow towing” would get worked in there as well.

      1. avatar Joke & Dagger says:

        So many Moms Against Guns to have sex with, so little time.

        1. avatar Derrick says:

          Well every kid needs a father, or two.

    2. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

      2/3rds of a pun. P.U.

    3. avatar mountocean says:

      So are the children are cowed or moo-ving? they’re opposites, horrible pun.

      On that note I declare my independence from idiocracy.

      The devil take these double posts!

  4. avatar JoshinGA says:

    Wow…they’ve really hit this stage? This is just sad.

  5. avatar CCDWGuy says:

    I went to the range today to shoot. Really busy because of the holiday. I took four guns and not a single one of them committed any violence. Amazing that I came home unscathed.

    1. avatar In Memphis says:

      It dosnt work that way… they cant just go off when your pulling the trigger.

    2. avatar BLAMMO says:

      Did you have any of those guns that are designed for only one purpose:


      Just wondering, because there are millions of them out there and they’re used every day for purposes other than …


  6. avatar Toasty says:

    3000 people at a self organized rally in Albany and the news could care less. 8 paid protestors show up from out of state to protest a pro gun politician after a month of planning with untold amounts of Bloomberg money to do it and its a national fucking story.

  7. avatar Amanathia says:

    I had to check and make sure it wasn’t a link to an onion article.

    Dressing up as cattle is oddly appropriate…

  8. avatar Sixpack70 says:

    Moms Demand the Matrix. Mandating Blue pills for everyone!

  9. avatar William Burke says:

    How does “declaring one’s independence from gun violence” WORK? So the bullets just bounce off harmlessly, it that it?

    If so, the criminals will be declaring their independence from police weapons very soon….

    1. avatar Sixpack70 says:

      It’s more symbolic fantasy. These people believe happy thoughts and unicorn (maybe cow in this case) farts will change the world.

      1. avatar jsallison says:

        OMG no cow phartes!!! Think of the glueball wormening!!! We’re all gonna die!!!

  10. avatar shawn says:

    Post the female winner’s article on the moms demand facebook page.

  11. avatar Mick says:

    So you have a bunch of old Cows approaching the old Bulls in the Senate to show them all the Veal they want to protect from the slaughterhouse. Talk about an exercise in futility, most of those Senators are molesters and will be passing out candy while they try to work the Veal to their advantage.

    1. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

      Reminds me of why senators and congressman don’t use bookmarks….
      They just bend their pages over.


      1. avatar Roscoe says:

        “just bend their pages over”…and have a big bang.

        The Big Bang Theory!

        Bazinga back at ya.

      2. avatar Jus Bill says:

        Cow tipping, anyone?

  12. avatar Orion says:

    Wouldn’t you have to currently be under the thumb of gun violence to declare yourself independent of it?

    That tag line makes zero sense….seriously stupid people over their.

    I guess if I find myself the victim of a home invasion, I can just look my assailant in the face, toss my arms up and say “I’M OUT!” then walk out the front door?

  13. avatar Daniel says:

    So, they shouldn’t be cowed by the gun lobby, but, they should be cowed by the “take away your rights” lobby?

  14. avatar Ardent says:

    I find myself challenged to even begin. This is no longer unique for me, but it is still an exercise in credulity. Where to begin;
    If the effort were to ban the pneumatic air guns used on cattle this would make sense. Had there been a mass outbreak of gun violence on cows, again this would make sense. If the effort were intended to demonstrate the passivity and complicity of the electorate, neigh even the deluded denial of the fact of violence this would still make sense. As it stands this makes no sense and demonstrates the low intellect and lunacy of the disarmament cause. It is also a good demonstration of the lengths (however inappropriate and bizarre) that some will strive to when pushing an irrational agenda. When one lacks facts to support an agenda, shock value may suffice. However this clowning around isn’t likely to sway anyone. Frankly if I thought my supporters were this stupid I’d resign in the interest of the common good.

    1. avatar Roscoe says:

      I’d wager even Bloomberg looks at these people as idiots too, though useful idiots. And I bet he counts his new sheeple minions to put himself to sleep at night too.

      Of course, with their low attention span, Bloomie only has a short time to use these sheeple before they are distracted by the next fashionable trend that comes along in their boring little lives. Then he’ll have to organize another bunch of dolts with no self respect to do his kiddie style bidding (bloody shirt waiving) for him.

  15. avatar Aragorn says:

    If more mom’s paid attention to what their little whelps were doing
    that would cut down on violent crime in and of itself.

    1. avatar Roscoe says:

      You’re right; but then these moms wouldn’t have time to empower and fulfill themselves by participation in such weighty important activities as helping bully a bunch of law abiding citizens into submission.

  16. avatar Greg in Allston says:

    What kind of person/s, in their right mind, thinks up this kind of lunatic theater? Is that all they’ve got? It is to laugh.

  17. avatar DrVino says:

    Sheep. Sheep costumes. Or Lemming costumes…

  18. avatar Dirk Diggler says:

    would it be bad form to go to their little cow rally, find a busty MILF and ask her “GOT MILK?”

    1. avatar jsallison says:

      Likely better bring yer beer goggles.

    2. avatar Shenandoah says:

      I like the way you think.

  19. avatar chris says:

    seems like a bunch of cow-ards to me…

  20. avatar DisThunder says:

    Hmm…maybe we should try this mass organizing thing, but with calling our congress people, and rallying, like at state capitols maybe. And we should show up, like in force. Thousands of us. And we could call and email and there’d be no way to hide that the real PEOPLE of this country support their right to keep and bear arms, and then the media and their money would become all too aware that not only is the science, the law, and the will of the framers on our side, but so are the real numbers. BIG numbers of good, law-abiding folks who finally got pissed off and showed Bloomers and his idiot friends where the power really is, and they’d panic, and be force to try to hide it however they could.
    And then, even though the media would still lie through their teeth, the truth would be out there, and known, and those who were dumb enough to stir the hornet’s nest would be left to do things like make up nonsense petitions and force their kids to wear dumbass costumes.
    Man, that would be cool, wouldn’t it?

  21. avatar LongBeach says:

    Somebody should offer to pull those kids out of those crappy costumes and take em to the range. Show em that mommy doesn’t know what she’s talking about!

    1. avatar Carry.45 says:

      Just think about how sackless the men married to these women must be! I dare say this type of man is what’s shanking America.

  22. avatar Gw says:

    Opinion as follows: Underlying the activities associated with the Nurture aspect is — knowingly or not — the attempt to manifest the relative comfort, safety and security of the womb into the conditions of the external Environment / Societal structure.
    ( Some might reasonably infer this to also be the basis for the so-called ‘progressive movement’. This of course, accounts for the facts that nowhere to be found in any of it is a ‘new’ idea — and it’s readily accepted and incorporated into a governmental system that thrives and expands based on maintaining a population of subservient, dependent and unfortunately-now, wholly indentured people. )

  23. avatar Shire-man says:

    The whole “mom” thing is messed up.

    Reminds me of the sexixst rift that was used to push prohibition.

    Thats right. Men are violent drunkards who hate their own children. Come mighty woman and save your babies from those walking rapists.

    1. avatar Carry.45 says:

      Show me the rapist that can’t walk.

      1. avatar Shire-man says:

        haha I’m sure there’s some pelvis gyrating paraplegic out there somewhere. Or some rapist with a bad case of vertigo.

        We cant all be Shakespeare at 4 AM on the toilet. Poor word choice but the comparison to prohibition support being pushed by the same people for the same reasons remains true whether there has ever been a non-walking rapist or not. Women afraid of men. The same men they marry and have children with. Like every man has a hidden Lifetime movie antagonist driving a windowless van hidden inside them somewhere.

  24. avatar dan says:

    Using children…IS child abuse, plain and simple….all who do need to be prosecuted….imho

  25. avatar Matt in FL says:

    I refuse to believe that 85,000 people even looked at the front page of usatoday.com during the period in question, much less took the time to look at and sign their petition.
