Andrew "Benito" Cuomo Announces New Program: "Swatting" for Fun & Profit

Self-identified proud Progressive, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has  announced a tip hotline to rat out "illegal" gun owners. Anonymous tipsters will be paid $500 to report anyone who they merely suspect may illegally posses a firearm.

Never mind that such a system is ripe for potential abuse by vindictive ex romantic partners or disgruntled former employees or vicious left wing bloggers like Brett Kimberlin who revel in "Swatting" their political and ideological enemies. Also never mind that police may arrive armed to the teeth for a complete non-event and end up killing an entirely innocent human being a la Amadou Diallo. Do any of you liberals remember the late Mr. Diallo? Ya, I didn't think so.

H/T to Christopher Fountain of Journal News Online Gun Map Blowback fame who opined on this subject here. I urge you to read it. Chris delves into the character deficiencies of the Progressive mind.


  1. I can think of at least a hundred porcine progressives that I could rat out as being likely firearms hoarders. $500 x 100= $50,000 and I could have a fine time in Hawaii with that money.

    The Nazis had their informers and some of them are still with us. And they were damned proud of the work they did. George Soros, Obama's marionette, was one of them.

    Remember when the White House set up a rat line of their own to denounce conservatives who didn't agree with them? So called 'fishy individuals'? I think that I denounced YOU back then but Barack never sent the check. But don't feel bad. I denounced myself as well.

  2. LL: No offense taken.

    Under the the spreading Chestnut tree, I sold you and you sold me.

    To the Progressives, Orwell's 1984 is not a cautionary tale, it's an instruction manual.

  3. Texas. Let the North-East rot, buddy. You really don't need to be there any more. Besides, there will be plenty left for Cuomo & Malloy to feed upon.
