I don’t think it would be a stretch to say this statement from Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America sounds like a threat.
“When the colonists said you’ve become a tyrant, stop it, and when he wouldn’t stop, we shot, and we got rid of your King,” Pratt said, who went on to liken Obama to King George III.
Pratt said that President Obama “should remember King George III’s experience” as he “seems to forget that he was democratically elected.”
This is a ridiculous comparison because Larry Pratt and his cult of followers are represented by our democratically elected government, but merely being represented in government doesn’t mean you are entitled to having it your way. And contrary to the example set by today’s Republican party, the motto is majority rule, not minority rule.
I suppose if you’re a patriarchal, privileged, paranoid, old white guy clinging to your guns and religion, “democracy” means something else entirely.
