Tea party/militia blogger behind bricks, Pelosi threats and ‘little Wacos’ is on the government dole

Creepy image accompanying 'The Gatekeeper' by Mike Vanderboegh

Mike Vanderboegh, the militia leader behind the creepy “break their windows, break them now” rallying cry for vandals to attack Democratic lawmakers’ offices, is quite a character. He’s a gun nut … sorry, “enthusiast” who is obsessed with the idea that the Obama administration is going to confiscate his assault weapons … a blogger who created something called the Sipsey Street Irregulars, apparently based on a book he’s writing (Turner Diaries II, perhaps?) … a self-described “Christian libertarian small-r republican” who calls himself a “three percenter” or “threeper” — a group of gun owning, right wingers who live by the following “doctrine”:

The Three Percent are the folks the Founders counted on to save the Republic when everyone else abandoned it.

And we will.

There will be no more free Wacos and no more free Katrinas.

For we are the Three Percent.

We will not disarm.

You cannot convince us.

You cannot intimidate us.

You can try to kill us, if you think you can.

But remember, we’ll shoot back .

We are not going away.

We are not backing up another inch.

And there are THREE MILLION OF US.

Your move, Mr. Wannabe Tyrant.

Your move.
And, as things begin to spin out of control, remember this:
“All politics in this country now is just dress rehearsal for civil war.” — Billy Beck, August 2009.

Vanderboegh is also a rather pretentious would-be author who penned this creepy as hell “two act” online called “The Gatekeeper”, last August, in which a Congressman is murdered by the husband of “Theresa,” a woman “killed by healthcare rationing” in 2012. A clip:

A Tragi-comedy by Mike Vanderboegh in two scenes, playing soon at a congressional office near you.

Scene the First
13 December 2012

Chuck fumbled with the keys, dropped them, snatched them up and, finally, got the door open. The hospice nurse, alerted by the noise, was already up and standing in the middle of the front room. One look at her careworn face told the story.

“I’m sorry Mr. Daniels,” she said anyway. “She’s gone.”

Chuck dropped his keys on the table as he always did, cognizant only of the thought that nothing would ever be the same again.

Theresa was dead, then. Killed by health care rationing.

They had known this was the way it was going to be. Theresa had even stood in the town meeting, oh, how long ago, and told the congressman that if the Health Care Bill passed as written that it would come to this. They never thought it would be her. But she had been right. Government health care killed her. Too late diagnosed. Finally treated, too little, too late. And then, at the last, the “gate keepers” refused to pay for an experimental treatment that had shown great promise. Too “unproven,” they said.

Now she was gone.

What was there left to say?

Maybe, just maybe, there was one thing. …[Emphasis added]

And the big finish:

Scene the Second
21 December 2012

The congressman was alone as he finished cleaning out the desk drawers in his local office. He’d laid off the rest of his staff, and even his secretary and part-time bed partner had gone, seeking other employment. …

… The door to his office opened, and suddenly a man stood there. What the hell? I know I locked the front door.

“Who the hell are you?” the congressman demanded.

The man looked inoffensive enough. He had a beaten air about him. A sadness.

“I’m Theresa’s husband.” …

… “And congressman?”

The congressman just looked at him.

“Application denied.”

The shot seemed impossibly loud, even in the palatial room.

Apart from writing murder fantasies about members of Congress spurred on by healthcare reform, and doing radio interviews in which he suggests that Nancy Pelosi’s life may be in danger and that only heaving bricks through the windows of Democrats can stop the country from descending into civil war, Mike Vanderboegh is also one other thing: a Social Security Disability pensioner, living on the public dime. (H/T to ThinkProgress):

Vanderboegh has not thrown bricks at windows himself, he said, noting that he gets around with the help of a cane. …

… Vanderboegh is on Social Se­curity Disability and uses pri­vate insurance obtained through his wife’s employment, he said.

There’s really no end to the irony, is there?

    I love that they asked for “Public Defender”, they know now that there was an undercover FBI agent. The simpleton Tea baggers keep missing the point. These are the same whiners that were crying when the McCain/Bailin ticket lost. Now that their yelling (because they are haters not debaters) did not stop health care from passing, they are crying again. They think they can scare, intimidate and force others to go along with them by comments like “This time we came unarmed”, let me tell you something they are not the only ones who have guns and not all ex-military join the fringe militia crazies who don’t pay taxes and run around in the parks playing commando, the majority understand that the world is more complicated and grey then the black and white that these simpleton make it out to be and that my friend is the point. So it’s only fitting that their leaders are Sarah Bailin, Victoria Jackson, Michele Bachmann and their turn coat Glenn. So if you are bothered that there are some misconceptions of your group, well then I think you need to be more careful who you invite to give you speeches.

    I love how liberal simpletons such as the commenter Montana assume that all who love freedom and liberty and who hate socialism and government control won’t “debate” or “are stupid” – when it is they, the simpleton liberals who promulgate such garbage as “Rules for Radicals” (which they operate by) – while having no idea of the scope or the incredible impact of the Constitution, the debates of the Federalists and the Anti-Federalists, etc. – most likely because they went to a public school where they never read any of these awesome documents – and would not have the mental capacity to understand them if they did…that is, if they can even read.

    Obama, Pelosi, Reid – they are just the latest versions of the spirit of “Ellsworth Toohey”. Look that name up – no doubt you have never heard of him – again, you most likely are not that well read.

    Hello… I felt compelled to give everyone a heads up about an author I’ve been following people should check out. His new book Damascus Road is excellent and right on point. His other book published last year, Almost Home was chilling about a power grid failure – and then Hollywood ripped it off for the TV series Revolution. Hollywood is such a rip off. Anyway… here’s what I’m in to and thought I’d share.

    The author L. Charles Holt: Almost Home and his most recent book Damascus Road.

    Both books can be found on Amazon, or Kindle, or at other retailers.

    “A person often meets his destiny on the road he took to avoid it.” Jean de La Fontaine (French Poet, 1621-1695)

    Damascus Road is a story of love of family, digging deeper than you thought possible when facing insurmountable odds and making your own luck until you ultimately succeed even as the world crumbles around you.

    Just thought you folks would want to know about these books. I love his favorite quote:

    “I’ll do what it takes – shoulder any burden, protect and defend family and friends. I love my family, my God and my country – I’m a Man living my days in America.” .

    All the best ya’ll.
