OMG This is how crazy things are getting!

I'm not sure if it's a joke or things are really getting that scary. It looks like a real website. Are they serious? If someone says it's ok to post the link I will. UPDATE - It was suggested the link would probably be ok to post, so here it is http://projectfreeamerica.com/

Calling all Bearcats!

Project: Free America is now promoting the cause of homicide legalization at the University of Cincinnati. Please email our Cincinnati Representative, Kate Simmons, or call us at (513) 426-6610 for more information.

Our first organizational meeting will be held on March 18, 2013. We strongly encourage all interested students, faculty, and staff to please email or call for specific location information.

Reclaim Your Right to Kill

The "Free America" project is fueled by a dedication to the vision of an America without constricting laws, such as those against rape, murder, and cannibalism. As Americans, we all deserve unconditional freedom, and we shouldn't be imprisoned by moral constraints and fear-driven campaigns any more!

Our primary push is to legalize homicide nation-wide. To receive updates, make sure to Like our Facebook page. Send your contact information to us via email to receive regular email updates on the progress of this campaign. We are currently active on several campuses in Ohio and based in the Cincinnati area.

1. "I'm not sure if it's a joke..."

 

Oh, I think you really are. If not, I'm worried about you.

But, they are right about the whole cannibalism thing -- victimless crime.

2. Sounds to me like they are making a point about how government provides a certain

frame in which we can live without constant fear of crime. It's a nice jab at all those asshats who cry and whine about the government taking away their "freedumbs". They curse the very foundations on which they walk. This "Project: Free America" does a nice job of sarcasm and wit that skillfully turns right-wing tactics on their head.

But it wouldn't surprise me a bit if there were people out there who took it seriously and supported it.

4. Sure, why not. I'd be curious to see more. Their suggestions are really over the top

and sounds pretty funny. I'm guessing there's little chance they actually believe it literally. If not, they are going to get an eyeful of DU scrutiny.

7. It's an awkward framing as most pro-RKBA arguments center on the "freedumb"

to defend one's self from rapists and murderers. And since police cannot get involved until AFTER a crime has been committed the only people who can defend against the rapists and murderers are average citizens.

8. Make murder legal

But don't you DARE legalize pot.

IMO this is showing us how crazy it has gotten. They may as well make murder legal if they are going to insists on keeping assault weapons legal.
