Andy Parker Should Probably Get Counseling

I probably should not have jumped to conclusions so quickly in my last post about Senator Stanley getting threats from Andrew Parker. As if often the case, there was more to the story. Apparently this was among the rants:

“YOU’RE FINEST MOMENT, YOU SORRY LITTLE COWARD,” he posted. “YOU DIDN’T EVEN HAVE THE DECENCY TO REACH OUT AND OFFER A LAME CONDOLENCE AFTER MY DAUGHTER Alison Bailey WAS MURDERED IN YOUR DISTRICT. WHEN YOU SEE ME AGAIN, YOU BEST WALK THE OTHER WAY LEST I BEAT YOUR LITTLE ASS WITH MY BARE HANDS.”

I still hold that Everytown is probably going to be sorry they allied with Parker. Pretty clearly he’s unstable. Grief can be a funny thing though, but perhaps counseling is what Mr. Parker should be seeking right now, rather than vengeance based on some odd perceived wrong committed by Senator Stanley for not appropriately validating his grief.

    Here’s a bunch of links on when a threat becomes a “true threat”.

    That is the speech /itself/ is a crime.

    (Also note the one 2 years ago about a prof tweeting against the NRA)

    It is a complicated subject.

    However, the above declaration cites specific actions and intent so it would be enough to at least contact the police.

    Especially if given Parker’s history of behavior.

    Again, while the above might not be enough to get an RO, let alone be a true threat. Reporting it now is helpful in case Parker commits future… escalation.

    Again the police would be more accomodating if a documented history of escalating actions can be cited.

    And not just for Stanley. Parker has also mouthed off at other people.

    Thus if Parker were to say something, like another promise of voilence, to someone else, Stanley’s documention helps build a documented history.

    Dude sounds deranged…which is probably why he fits right in with the anti-civil rights crowd…

      The gun control movement is going to regret trying to use Parker. Just as I suspect they are going to regret using the Australia dog whistle.

      • Weer'd Beard says:

        Which honestly will be never.

        Do you see the Brady Campaign showing regret going from the biggest anti-gun lobby group in this country to a company barely able to keep the lights on?

        They’re true believers, so even if we are successful at showing the American public that they don’t have our best interest in mind, and shouldn’t be trusted, it will always be the big boogie man of the NRA buying off their political supporters, rather than them crossing a bridge too far.

    When Andy Parker metaphorically jumped on to his daughter’s coffin to preach the glory of gun control, I thought at first he was just trying to resurrect his failed political ambitions. But now?

    He’s clearly a nut. Maybe he always was a nut and that’s why his run for office failed before, but maybe not. I take him deadly seriously when he shouts the new gun control motto “whatever it takes”.

    And I take the gun control movement deadly seriously when they elevate Andy Parker as the public face of gun control, and endorse that threatening motto of “whatever it takes”.

    Whatever it takes? Okay then. Forewarned is forearmed.

  4. I would say that Parker needs to be slapped with a restraining order.

  5. Lance Lot Link says:

    Collective guild applies two ways. Bloomberg, Brady, et al, all share responsibility for anything that he might do.

  6. Jacob says:

    This is exactly the sort of behavior Ladd & CSGV have been encouraging for some time.

  7. Sigivald says:

    I’m just confused by the idea (even if held by a loonie) that a representative (in the broad sense) is obliged to offer a private person condolences on the occasion of a relative’s murder within their district, in a case where said murder has nothing at all to do with the representative?

    “You’re a politician, you have to pay attention to me” is … man, something’s wrong with that person.

    • Braden Lynch says:

      Attention whore.

      Dangerous nut job.

      I would get a restraining order and be armed as he sounds just like a stalker.
