Last July, The New Civil Rights Movement posted two disturbing videos made by Gilberton, Pennsylvania, Police Chief Mark Kessler, who, in his off hours, runs a militia-style group called The Constitution Security Force. Kessler lost his cool upon hearing Secretary of State Kerry had signed a United Nations treaty that would outlaw the sale of arms to regimes guilty of human rights violations. Chief Kessler videotaped himself screaming profanity at Sec. Kerry before letting loose with his assault weapon for emphasis.
A sample of Chief Kessler’s invective:
Secretary of State John Kerry — that piece of shit traitor! — who is he to decide what we can and can’t own? And fuck the UN! Who are they to decide what we, the American people can own? I’ve a message to Kerry, and to these cocksuckers in the UN. Here’s your fucking agreement Sign anything you want to sign. It’s not going to mean shit. It don’t fucking mean shit to me. You know what I have to say? Come and take it motherfucker! (Fires assault weapon into the air.)
You can watch the video for yourself below:
When his tirade against the UN arms treaty began to attract attention, Chief Kessler make this “apology” video, telling libtards (that’s us) to grow some balls” and offering other handy tips on what to do with ourselves.
Last Thursday, the Gilberton, Pennsylvania town council fired Kessler. Before the 6-1 vote, the council discussed whether the chief’s profanity-laden videos of himself indiscriminately firing an assault weapon demonstrated he was unfit to serve. During that debate, armed members from his “Constitution Security Force” stood by to support Kessler.
I am obviously glad to see Chief Kessler go. I can’t imagine a gay man, or a member of a minority, (or a Democrat for that matter,) who was picked up in Gilberton, would have any confidence that he would be treated fairly. But I have to ask the question: armed partisans are allowed to attend council meetings? Government literally “under the gun”?
Does that really seem like a good idea to anyone?
