Secessionist ready to kill own son to dissolve union
Source: Examiner

We ask him if you won the election, and you seceded, what would you do if the United States government sent your son to stop you? Would you be willing to kill your own son? Because that's what we're talking about if you start another Civil War -- brother against brother. That's when he relates the following story.

One day, he's in his room arguing with his son (his family tries to talk him out of his extreme positions), and finally loses it. "He literally attacked me," Horsley says. "He weighs 220 lbs like a Bulldog and said 'Dont say another word!'"

The second time his son slammed him down, when Horsley got up, he had a pocket knife out. "My son looks at me and says, 'So, its life or death, huh?' and I said, 'Yeah, life or death son. Dont come back until youre ready to apologize to me.' The point is, I was one foot from killing my own son, or hurting him really, really bad. If he would have attacked me again, I would have stuck him. Or cut him or sliced him or done something to stop him. That's the point, you hypothetical has literally already been worked out with me, and thats what makes me different from the other candidates for Governor. They understand Im not like no politician they have looked at, ever. I am prepared to do a John Brown. Im not prepared to do an Abe Lincoln and talk out both sides of my mouth and try to get a majority together. Im looking for the people who are prepared to go with me and take over the foundry, then set up shop and prep to fight to the death. Ill do it."

Creator's Rights Party candidate for governor, Neal Horsley, who is running on a secessionist platform, is asked if he's serious enough about it to be willing to kill his own son if the US army were sent to prevent secession.

Not only would he do it, he's almost done it before.

8. ha, you're right!
The name didn't jog my memory right away. (Though, I don't exactly keep much room for "psychotic secessionist mule-fucking gubernatorial candidates" in my brain. ;-) )

What a seriously disturbed person he is, though. And yet, he's only slightly crazier than the average GOPer.

16. That's a good Republican
The article says he's with some small other party, but he's still a Republican.

9. Yes, a mule. He admitted so on the Alan Colmes radio show.
"Horsley was born in Bremen, Georgia. On May 5, 2005, Horsley was a guest on The Alan Colmes Show, a FOX News radio program. During that interview, and after repeated questions about his personal sinfulness, Mr. Horsley stated that when he was eleven years old he had engaged in bestiality with a mule on the farm he grew up on in Georgia. "I was a fool," Horsley told Colmes, crediting Jesus with forgiving and cleansing him of his "sin."<1> After serving in the Air Force in the mid-1960s, Horsley traveled to San Francisco, California, where he claims to have become an anti-war advocate and hippie. Horsley did time in jail on charges of drug possession, and it was there in 1974 that he converted to Christianity."

13. An old rhyme about hard headed country boys
My dad (born and raised in the backwaters of KY) would use this when he'd run into someone too stubborn to learn a common sense lesson that was right in front of them. It is obviously a very old little ditty:

"You can give 'em books and send 'em to school, but they'll just stand on the books and fuck the mule."

4. We hanged John Brown. Who was against slavery, not for secession.

6. Truly a product of right-wing extremism.
Things like this remind me to always focus on progressive movements; to focus on constructive, productive, positive actions and opinions that build a country. Liberal extremists are guilty of a lot but in-sighting violence is not one of them.

Look at this man's actions due to his ideology; he would kill his own son. A tree is known by it's fruit and this man is obviously wicked.

10. Life outpaces fiction again
I've had an idea on the backburner that if I ever had the opportunity to write a "TV Crime Drama" I'd have an episode where a nutjob Christian serial killer used a "Wobble headed Jesus" to decide life or death to his victims. Among various things he'd do would be to have a scimitar and burst into a house to kill the family for their pocket change and as he bursts in ready to slice them up he'd say "-For I have come with a sword to divide families!!!"

For the encore that introduces the next episode I'd have it fading from the Fuzz going "Well we stopped one Christian, but how many more are out there...?" Then there'd be a guy who wrecked a car on a country road. He'd follow a crude sign to some backwoods and then be startled seeing a US$100 (silver note and very ragged) fluttering under a tree and he'd go to grab it. Then a huge improvised meat hook (welded together sharpened rebar, almost a boat anchor) would come down and impale him. As he gurgled and struggled dying a grossly inbred clan of hillbillies would come out salivating and holding knives and such to butcher him. The patriarch (deliberately looking like the preecher man from Poltergeist II) would say; "See, my family, the rightness of the word? For the good book doth say; Follow me and I shall make thee Fishers of MEN!!!"


Now, if I got this on the air, it'd probably be it's only showing and last season. It'd make "The book of Daniel" look uncontroversial. They'd say, at the very least, I had a rather "unfair" view of "Good Christians"...


Now RL again puts nutjobs that'd make my fictitious characters look mild. And ones that while extreme, do get many supporters.

11. I get the feeling there's more to that story
I get the feeling the fight he had with his son was started by him, not by his son and that the son was forced to defend himself.

17. I got the impression...
...they were arguing about his views regarding secession and abortion. His family wants him to stop.

15. This dumb hick doesn't realize he will be snuffed out by a drone or guided missle
or bomb or tank shell. He will never get a chance to pull out his pocket knife to slice anyone. His son will push the button or pull the trigger or program the firing mechanism and neither son not parent will ever know that they were on opposite ends of the exchange.

And no one will give a fuck about when he is dead.
