Bill Whittle’s joke about shooting Californians has left in a lather

A joke about shooting Californians made by conservative blogger and political commentator Bill Whittle has liberals all in a lather.

Best known for his “Afterburner” series on PJTV, Whittle is a dyed-in-the-wool conservative who pulls few punches when it comes to pointing out the flawed policies of President Obama and the progressive left.

Whittle was speaking Saturday at the “Freedom Rally,” sponsored by Texans for Freedom and Liberty, which also featured U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas.

“You will see a lot of cars coming west heading east on Interstate 10, and they’re going to have California license plates on them,” Whittle said to those gathered over the weekend. “Now, if you see these cars pull into rest areas or hotels or restaurants, that’s fine; wave goodbye, make sure they go out on the Louisiana end.”

“But if you see them pull off into residential areas, you need to open fire on these vehicles immediately,” Whittle deadpanned. “Immediately. Not with 9mm or AR rounds; you need to put mortars on those things, you cannot take any chances.”

The folks at the event ate it up, as the room rang with laughter. After all, it was a joke. And a funny one at that.

Whittle said Californians are looking to move to Texas to enjoy its “awesome job opportunities, the incredible economy and the conservative government.”

“They will change it and mess it up,” he said. “Don’t let that happen. Just start shooting.”

H/T Right Scoop

Singing from the same hymnal, liberal websites Raw Story and Talking Points Memo posted ominous headlines tying the event to Cruz, and both mentioned him in the first sentence.

A writer at the far-left Daily Kos even goes so far as to suggest that Whittle is advocating for mass murder. Oh, the horror!

    Poor ol’ Dante, the tweeter featured after the article, doesn’t get tongue-in-cheek humor directed at Texans. When joking about Texas, mention guns. When joking about California, mention drugs and/or New Age weirdness. DC (for Obama groupies, this is not one of the “57″ states) = crooks.

  • Don Sebold

    Obimbo asks the military if they would shoot Americans…..don’t hear anything about that

    • EliseR

      You have proof of that? Let’s see it.

      • Pamela K. Cahoon Laub

        Military leaders who said no were fired. Look it up troll.

        • EliseR

          Look it up where? The right-wing nut job blogs? Nothing mentioned in the court martial proceedings of those who were fired. Nothing mentioned in military records. No military leader has come out and said he was fired for saying he would not shoot Americans. No military leader has said they were asked the question by a superior. No FACTS anywhere on this except in your muddled little head.

      • C Ken Davis Sr

        I see you on a lot of conservative posts. How much are you being paid by the Democrats and Obama? You are still working for them aren’t you? Last I heard you were.

      • Don Sebold

        Drones…drones..drones..

        • EliseR

          Please elaborate. When/where did the President ask the military if they would shoot Americans? You don’t “hear anything about that” because it never happened. If you think it did, where is the record? Where are the military leaders coming out and saying what happened? Where is the documentation that they were questioned by the President? No proof = all lies.

      • Don Sebold

        Next your gonna tell me he hasn’t dismissed top leadership in military because they were up for retirement….or that we don have a complete set of Muslim America hating terrorists making policy who weren’t vetted by congress and only report to your king….you and the rest of the left wont realise the terrible things happening to our country until its to late….take the time and down load obimbocare and read the entire bill I have it is a complete surrender of your freedoms and rights…he doesn’t care what race,ethnicity,religion or financial level you hold…until then your out of the loop….another gem that 70% of the country didn’t want….yet here we are….and by the way there is written testimony available on line from the archives of congress about his asking if American soldiers would shoot other Americans…..that’s why your boy Kerry is trying to surrender our sovreiegnty to the UN…..can’t get the truth from CNN or MSNBC….lets give more billions to Islam too
        They will be here soon might as well make them feel comfortable before the horror show starts….you know like in Euorpe…or is that a dream also…

    Dead on !

    He’s assuming that all Californians are Libtards. The ones moving out to Texas and Florida are most likely very far right Conservatives, like me, who are tired of the Commie BS and who are trying to hang onto their IRA and assets before the Govt. steals it all. That’s why I bought another house in Florida for my getaway.

    • ATTPIAinFL

      Floriduh’s got TOO many transients now. A humongous constitutional conservative voting block is what’s needed now in FL.

      • Gary

        That’s what I hope to add too – a conservative voting block. It’s mostly that way in the panhandle of FL anyway from what I hear.

    • rascalina

      Well when you do move from CA to TX, make sure you have your AR15 and your shovel with you, so we know the difference between you and the Gluten intolerant Libtards.

      • Gary

        That’s one of the reasons I’m moving. California considers them Assault Weapons and have banned them. I have my trusty Mossberg 500 pistol grip 12-gauge pump action and a Navy Colt 45 and I intend to by a AR-15 and a Ruger .380 w/laser sight (another pistol they only allow police officers to have here) when I get there.

  • Pamela K. Cahoon Laub

    Foolish Dante not only doesn’t understand jokes, but he can’t even tell Cruz from Whittle.

  • ATTPIAinFL

    Luv it lol, liberals sure can DISH OUT the distasteful humor but they CAN’T TAKE IT! Joke’s on THEM this time!

  • Boobie_The_Rocket_Dog

    Whittle expressed a feeling I’ve often had about New Yorkers.
    Same reason, too.

    • Mohammed’s pink swastika

      Except for BFH… We need to convince him to move to Texas. Need to get that boy a cowboy hat, some s*** kickers and six shooter…
