Incendiary Image Of The Day: Greasing The Treads Of Our Tanks

Image courtesy Congressman Steve Stockman

This image comes to us from the Facebook page of Congressman Steve Stockman, Republican of Texas, where the tenor of the ensuing debate makes our own dear mikeb2000 look positively collegial by comparison. Laughs aside, using salt water as a lubricant is strongly not recommended. Regardless of its source.

Not even for an AK.

    Lol. I would gladly switch from Frog Lube.

    1. avatar Hal says:

      I see your comments and similar ones below. However I am worried that liberal tears would end up being more corrosive than Ukraine primers because liberals are saturated with hate.

  2. avatar DrVino says:

    Chrome lined barrel. No worries.

  3. avatar S.CROCK says:

    hoppe’s new line of gun cleaners.

  4. avatar Steve says:

    Not gonna lie: I lol’d

    1. avatar Hannibal says:

      me too, even not being a fan of republicans

  5. avatar g says:

    I normally dislike the casual labeling of gun control debates in “liberal” vs “conservative” terms, but this is hilarious.

    $5 for the first gun rights genius who makes “FEINSTEIN’S FAUX TEARS” as a gun lubricant.

      Id rather have the real ones.

      1. avatar Gov. William J. Le Petomane says:

        Crocodiles don’t have tears.

      2. avatar Dustin Eward says:

        I’d prefer her blood. No, wait, that’s what I want to bathe in…

    3. avatar Kris says:

      I discovered long ago that every time I buy a gun, Diane Feinstein soils her adult diaper. Makes it hard to stop buying guns.

      1. avatar B says:

        I find myself buying crap that liberals don’t want me to. AR? Check. AK? Check. Slidefire, silencers, and SBR’s? Check. CHL in multiple states? Check. Gas guzzling SUV? Check. Obamacare plan? F* that noise. I didn’t own any of these prior to 2012. Its like a gut check for me, “would this make baby Feinstein cry?”

        1. avatar jwm says:

          B and Chuck. I’ve felt for years that if it had not been for the 68 gca American gun owners would be a different breed today. Mostly hunters, and few of those. EBR’s and combat tupperware would have died from lack of interest. As a nation we were leaving the rural and taking up the urban life and we were leaving a lot of the traditional ways behind.

          The 68 gca galvanised gun owners, myself included. It’s been a long fight and it’s nowheres near done. But we have a thriving gun culture now ready to do battle with the grabbvers.

      2. avatar Chuck in IL says:

        The original AWB is the reason I bought a Colt M4. I had never even thought of buying one before. Thanks DiFi, for introducing me (and many others) to the fun world of the AR. I chuckle when I think about how many guns the AWB sold.

  6. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

    What a great picture!

  7. avatar Excedrine says:

    I lol’d. I would gladly switch from Slip2000.

  8. avatar Tominator says:

    The only problem I see here is that Liberal Tears stink a whole lot!

    Besides, they are like a hotdog….nobody really knows what’s in them!

    1. avatar J- says:

      Patchouli and hemp oil

  9. avatar Javier says:

    This man appears to be a master of the low effort, maximum rage effect troll. My hat is off. 10/10

  10. avatar Braenen says:

    So… I am supposed to save my tears now?

    What is the street value?

    1. avatar Javier says:

      Low, the supply far exceeds any possible demand.

  11. avatar Adub says:

    That’s funny. And we already know what the federales use to grease the treads of their APCs, so this is fair.

  12. avatar ChuckN says:


    liberal tears do not contain salt. Salt is bad for you, which
    is why many liberal do-gooders *cough Blomberg cough*
    have actively tried banning it (despite its necessity for
    human existence).

    Instead liberal tears are comprised of pure refined
    hydrocarbons; a byproduct of their bodies’ breakdown of
    the massive amounts of bul!sh*t regularly ingested and
    regurgitated ad nauseum.

  13. avatar Guy From V says:

    I need to see the MSDS for this first. I don’t want to go through another “Blood of Innocents” thing like I did last year.

  14. avatar Matt in TN says:

    This implies that liberal tears are good for something.

    1. avatar Gov. William J. Le Petomane says:


    2. avatar Tarrou says:

      Well, in addition to lubricant, they are also delicious.

      1. avatar Dustin Eward says:

        Now lick your AK! Like a man!

  15. avatar DJ says:

    Is AK, glorious gun of Soviet Union. Is best gun in world. Tears are part of operating instructions.

    1. avatar int19h says:

      Only the tears of imperialist bourgeois pigs. At least per the original design.

  16. avatar Gov. William J. Le Petomane says:

    It is interesting how he used “liberal tears” to lube the famed communist rifle. Maybe he should have found a Garand or a 1911 or something.

  17. avatar Swarf says:

    That joke is almost as funny as when liberals came up with it 10 years ago.

    1. avatar ColdNorth says:

      Not to be a party pooper (okay, yes to be a party pooper), but the first reference to “Liberal Tears” I can find is from 1994, in a usenet post. The first to use it as an insult is from 1998 (again, usenet).

      While I will agree with you that there are quite a few left-of-centre comedians, I think that in this case it originated from the right-of-centre.

  18. avatar Greg in Allston says:

    I’ve been using RemOil for thirty years+ now. It’s good stuff in the right situation. That said, is there any nectar so sweet (or lubricant so efficacious) as the tears of a hippy? I think not. YMMV.

  19. avatar LongBeach says:

    This is a win all the way around. I’m off to relabel all of my cleaners/lubricants/protectants. Is protectants a word?

    1. avatar RKflorida says:

      It is now.

  20. avatar A-Rod says:

    S. Watts Brand Vag Oil. Guaranteed to lube the driest of cracks.

    1. avatar jwm says:

      Way to pricey for us regular folks. kapo bloomberg can afford it. The only way to generate the oil is to wave bundles of benjamins under her nose.

  21. avatar MojoRonin says:

    Don’t use liberal’s tears…you want something that works and does a job

    1. avatar Matt in Tx says:

      this +1

  22. avatar deft says:

    QQ more, u wont get trolled if ur not a gun nub. Liberals shoot too…

    Let gays tie the knot, gay ≠ pedobear… let people smoke pot, cannabis ≠ heroin… let us make own and sell any firearm we want up to and including 20mm cannons…. guns ≠ murder….

  23. avatar Phil says:

    He’s going green, this is a renewable resource. Now, if we could put in our cars…

    Stockman has declared he’s challenging John Cornyn for TX other senate seat. He’ll get my vote for senate, that’s for sure.

  24. avatar defensor fortisimo says:

    If that doesn’t work, I find a liberal powdering of white guilt does wonders

  25. avatar RionAnnassie says:

    Am I a nerd for being able to tell that this is actually a Saiga that has been converted back?

    1. avatar Dustin Eward says:

      I thought I was the only one… :-p

  26. avatar Jonathan says:

    Rifle is fine.

  27. avatar Ralph says:

    So that’s the secret ingredient in Rem Oil.

  28. avatar Dustin Eward says:

    “Not even for an AK.”

    I don’t think this implies that Liberal Tears are good for anything, nor that they make good lubricant. But merely that, in a pinch, it would get you by if you owned an AK.

    I guess what I’m saying is that the AK is the manliest, most resilient of firearms. In much the same way that AK owners don’t cry or get gummed up if there’s a little dust blowing.

    While most gun owners are crying about being afraid of what the government might do next, and how best to dig a hole and hide and ‘stay off the radar’ I’m willing to bet that the ones standing up and shouting “WOLVERINES” are probably the AK owners…

    You know… Just sayin’… AKs, like their owners, can take the crappiest crap, handle it, and keep on rockin’.
