Incendiary Image of the Day: Colorado Recall Sign-napping Edition

“The morning of the first day of recall voting in the John Morse recall election in Colorado Springs, CO (yesterday) one of our livestream cameras got video of two guys taking pro-recall yard signs,” reports. “It’s important to note that these signs were outside the 100 ft. electioneering prohibition zones that are set up around the entrance of every voting location. Check out our livestreaming all day and use the hashtag #revealingrecall on twitter to stay in the loop.” As Chris Matthews likes to say, “let’s play hardball.” In this particular place for politics, a successful recall of CO’s two pro-gun control pols would send a chilling message to disarmament Dems looking to touch the third rail in American politics. Again. Still. [h/t SS]

    Would have been awesome if a few guys w scary black rifles confronted them and held them until po-po came

      Spears. Terrifying, and no chance of a magazine check.

      They’d be far too brown-trousered to shout “See! You don’t need guns!”

  2. avatar ThayneT says:

    Onc again for the anti-2A folks the end justifies the means. So much for the moral high ground.

    1. avatar Howdy says:

      Morse has no moral high ground on this. He openly invited and asked for out of state money and resources so he could stay in office. Just to use the same argument he’s attempting to use; he’s gone next year, if he would have left office immediately, he could have singularly saved his constituents in $1,000,000 in taxpayer money.

      Get both of them out out out.

    2. avatar Frank Masotti says:

      The anti-2A people never had the moral high ground to begin with. There is nothing moral about our right violating the 2A

  3. avatar Fed up in CO says:

    Whats even worse is the two up for recall helped to change who can vote where in Colorado. All you have to do now is have intent to move into the district to vote. Now the winner will be whoever can bus in the most voters…

  4. avatar C says:

    I’d do the same thing to opposition signs, so i can’t really blame him. When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die.

    1. avatar Old Ben turning in grave says:

      I get where you are coming from, and we should not be afraid to call them out clearly. But remember, the Progressive movement is about destroying the current system. Lawlessness, even in service to a good cause, plays into their hands.

      Now, who wants to bet against those two sign snatchers being on the clock (at time and a half) for some union?

      1. avatar NYC2AZ says:

        If by union you mean ‘on a Bloomberg payroll’, then I wouldn’t put money against it.

      2. avatar Jon says:

        Being as I am a union employee in this very district, I feel like we’re throwing blame where its not needed. Don’t punish the many for the few.

        1. avatar Jusgart says:

          I applaud your civil reply, ’tis a rarity to see on most blogs I read.

          This blog is one of the most civil on the ‘net

          Just my $.02

        2. avatar Old Ben turning in grave says:

          I support peoples’ ability to bargain collectively if that’s what they want to do. Heck, in many States people have no choice if they want to work in certain fields/places.

          That said, when I was a good grad school liberal, two of my wake-up calls came from talking to people at protests. One, in particular, had a very rowdy and vocal faction of people who were (I thought) doing more harm than good. Turns out they were paid and bussed in by a union. A couple I talked to didn’t even know why they were there. I haven’t found this to be unusual in the decades since, now that I’ve been paying attention. That, plus the fact that the unions fill the war chest of the Progressive movement, means that feeding the beast is bad for America.

          So, what could be simple and productive bargaining organizations have all too often deteriorated into shake-down gangs. As to your particular situation, you would know better than I.

    Here in Nevada ,that’s called THEFT and is punishable by fine and possible jail term or both.Citizens have the right to make a citizens arrest. You may detain til police arrive.Since we are an open carry state you may ,without brandishing ,allow the suspects to observe that you are armed.You also may recover YOUR property from the suspects with proof of ownership.If however the suspects choose to vanquish the immediate area you have NO duty to follow or physically touch.You can question and obtain names and addresses.
    I believe it is in the pro gun ‘best interest ‘ to protect these signs with a physical presence.

  6. avatar Eric L says:

    Who’d a thunk it? The antis are lying, cheating and stealing…..all while claiming the moral high ground.

    1. avatar Accur81 says:

      I would. I trust the antis every bit as much as I’d trust my Weimaraner to guard a plate of bacon.

      1. avatar Rich Grise says:

        Robin Masters’ lads, Zeus and Apollo, would, but they’re exceedingly well-trained dobies.

      2. avatar Denny says:

        +1 Agreed
        My son’s wolf hybrid here would have the same political views on said bacon

      3. avatar Russ Bixby says:

        Once it’s eaten, it’s exceedingly well-guarded.

    2. avatar Russ Bixby says:

      Motality is immoral. High is low. Democracy is tyrany. We are at war with — everybody.

      1. avatar Rich Grise says:

        Well, raw democracy can and often does lead to the tyranny of the majority, (“Tax the rich!”) which is yet another reason why 2A is so vitally important to a society of Free people.

        “Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what’s for dinner. Freedom is a well-armed sheep.”
        — not anonymous, I just don’t remember who exactly said it first.

    Why did she not confront them and tell them they were on tape and get their reaction. There is no way I could have sat there and said nothing. It is illegal. You got it on tape, big deal, if you do nothing about it you might as well not bother.

    1. avatar Russ Bixby says:

      Probably because she didn’t feel up to confronting two largish, male criminals.

  8. avatar crndl says:

    nicely done, lois lane 🙂

  9. avatar John F says:

    If she had confronted them, They might have pulled out thier GUNS and shot her…
    John Az
    Oh yeah they don’t believe in Guns & self defence

    1. avatar Russ Bixby says:

      No, they’d have had law enforcement remove her and file charges of disturbing the peace.

  10. avatar JW says:

    Ummm… so why not just go confront them and get their faces on camera? Just sayin’

    1. avatar Denny says:

      +1 Point well made evidence and embarrassment

  11. avatar Ralph says:

    I used to live across the street from the local polling place. My signs were stolen on more than one occasion, so I had the candidate park a small flatbed trailer in my driveway, and on that trailer was a huge campaign sign. Near the campaign sign was a smaller “no trespass” sign with the silhouette of a shotgun. End of theft.

    No, I wouldn’t shoot some stupid a-h0le for stealing a campaign sign, but they didn’t know that.

    1. avatar Denny says:

      Good point and ploy

  12. avatar SkyMan77 says:

    What cracks me up is that in today’s day and age campaign signs are fretted about so much. IMHO…If I get to Election Day and choose to vote for a candidate based on “signage” instead of research and vetting I’m failing myself and my country…. But alas these signs are important… As you were…

  13. avatar Russ Bixby says:


    The Amerikan Statist Party sure lives down to their acronym.

    You can bet that had anyone snatched any pro-Morse placards it’d be the lead headline everywhere.

    Grabbers are so low that when you bury one of them, you have to dig upward.

    Bunch o’ sh¡ts.
