The Gun Owners of America political action group has posted a curious “meme” on their Facebook wall, quoting Beat author, homosexual and notable heroin addict, William S. Burroughs—who, of course, drunkenly shot his wife in the face and killed her—on gun control.
Sort of takes “un-ironic” to the breaking point and beyond, no?
According to the caption information, the “meme” was sent to them by Republican Texas congressional candidate, Steve Stockman, who the GOA says they have endorsed. To all but just a few commenters, the “meme fail” nature of the Burroughs quote went right over their heads,
One particularly stupid comment stood out to me:
“Why not take all theaters and make more Exits and aisles? Once your packed in a theater with no way out, you’re trapped! No wonder this guy was able to take out so many in a short time. Blame the guns? What about the nut behind the weapons (bombs, grenades, etc) and the packed house these poor victims were trapped in?”
BLAME PUBLIC PLACES FOR GUN VIOLENCE??? Apparently so!
Here’s one more, just for laughs:
How about all of you that are against guns, GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY COUNTRY YOU COMMIE SOCIALIST FUCKING PIGS. Come get mine you pussy ass pieces of shit.
You hear that?
Thank you Archie Moore!
