Hoplogophobia

Combine hoplophobia with logophobia and you have hoplogophobia, a bizarre disease that afflicts only moonbats. Paul M. Winistorfer, the dean of the College of Natural Resources and Environment at Virginia Tech, has it bad:

The expressions “silver bullet,” “pull the trigger,” “shoot from the hip” and “under the gun” are used in everyday language across our campus, and commonly even by those in leadership positions. I hear these and similar terms at least once a week, if not once a day. It always makes me cringe.

I cannot help but reflect on the pain and suffering inflicted on so many in our country and around the world by violence involving guns and bullets.

Terms that make Wimpistorfer cringe include:

• Shoot from the hip
• Silver bullet
• Pull the trigger
• Shoot down in flames
• Shoot the breeze
• Shoot yourself in the foot
• Shooting fish in a barrel
• Shot across the bow
• Shot in the dark
• Shotgun marriage
• Point and shoot
• Bite the bullet
• Dodge the bullet
• Smoking gun
• Cross-fire
• Straight shooter
• Best shot
• Parting shot
• Blown away
• Under the gun
• Hair trigger
• Sweating bullets

Wimpistorfer whimpers that “these phrases are simply inappropriate and insensitive to a world trying to cope with ever-increasing gun and bullet violence.” No doubt someday they will all be banned.

A Christmas gift for Dean Wimpistorfer, in case he happens by:

On a tip from Steve T.

    Perhaps they should send Daeshi that video to show what would happen were they to try a car bomb suicide attack..

    What a fine Christmas gift that would make, a one hour pass to shoot anything they have on the line! And, to top it off, a fitting tribute to one of Ford’s less than graceful moments of engineering.

    ever-increasing gun and bullet violence – delusional.

    Is “double tap” OK? It’s not on the list.

    How many people do black people kill in a day with illegally obtained firearms? In gun-free zones? In gun-free cities like Chicago? How about Mexican gang members? How many Mexican citizens are toting fully automatic or other illegally obtained black market guns and using them in gangs? How many Mexican nationals are gang members in the USA? How many minority members are illegally using guns in gangs in the USA? What is the exact number of gang members in the USA currently? How many of the guns that they use were legally obtained? How many were bought on the black-market? Those black-market guns better stop making those peaceful people shoot others.

    ABC “news” just ran a piece about a drunken white guy shooting wildly on the highway. How many people were shot or shot at by blacks today? Muslims?

    Just preceding the story was the news Syed and his Mexican buddy had planned to pipe bomb a California highway to cause a traffic jam and to roam around and shoot the trapped innocent Christian drivers. It would have been like shooting fish in a barrel. We really dodged a bullet on that one, almost literally. Could pistol-packin’ commuters have stopped them? It seems to me that the silver bullet to stop these terrorists is responsible armed citizens. An armed American citizenry would be a shot across the bow of the Jihadists and gang members, too. We need some spokesmen and politicians who shoot from the hip to make people aware that we are under the gun when it comes to terrorists and criminals. These liberal quasi-communist totalitarians sweat bullets at the thought of Americans owning guns but anyone who claims that we are safer with a disarmed citizenry is shooting himself in the foot. It is counterproductive to disarm in order to be safe. In the face of the Marxist onslaught, traditional Americans are really going to have to bite the bullet and shoot straight in the fight to maintain our God-given Constitutionally protected rights. The smoking gun in many of these mass shootings, not to mention Chicago daily life, is that these atrocities are sponsored by liberals because they take place in gun-free zones. The next time you are shooting the breeze with a liberal, bring this up. Mention the immigration problem, too, point out that it is a shotgun marriage between Americans and Jihadists and unassailable wage-lowering foreigners. They are bringing in all kinds of disparate foreign groups and forcing Americans to weather the crossfire. As a parting shot I remind you that although liberals have a hair trigger regarding our Constitutional 2nd Amendment rights, you will blow them away if you use these and some good arguments of your own.

    I hope to treat the good Professor to a metaphorical 21 gun salute for bringing up the subject of the very unapproved non-communist constant references to guns. I will fire a volley in his honor, metaphorically speaking. Just preceding the above-mentioned story was the news that Syed and his Mexican buddy had planned to pipe bomb a California highway to cause a traffic jam and to roam around and shoot the trapped innocent Christian drivers.

As a parting shot I remind you that although liberals have a hair trigger regarding our Constitutional 2nd Amendment rights, you will blow them away if you use these and some good arguments of your own because they will, with their insipid, effete, and tired old arguments, be bringing a knife to a gun-fight .

    I noticed “Bust a cap” wasn’t listed, no doubt as to why, to include it would be “RAY-CISS” of course.

    Wimpisdorfer… the type specimen for L. Neil Smith’s ‘Wimpersnits.’ In Neil’s asteroid-exploitation libertarian SF novel ‘Ceres,’ one of the characters writes, from Mars and later from the terraformed asteroid Pallas, a children’s serial cartoon adventure where a little girl and her ‘arachnofelid’ (sort of a cat with eight legs) have fantastic adventures outwitting these creatures, who are afraid of all things fun or freedom-oriented and make rules against them. The few remaining governments on Earth, uniformly without success, ban each episode before it is released. Neil has not released a picture of a Wimpersnit, but I think they look like the Muppet character Beaker, and are about as neurotic.

    We should put Wimpersnits out of their misery and ours any time the opportunity presents. Videos like the one above make their heads explode, so this should not be too difficult.

    The Darwin Awards need a new category: ‘Islamostupidity!” The first nominee would be that Daeshi, immortalized on YouTube, who tried to fire an RPG through a small hole in a wall. Between the backblast and the detonation when the warhead missed the hole, both confined to a medium-sized room, he is probably servicing Allah down in hell!

    The Darwin Awards need several new categories and all of them befitting moonbats.
    It’s ironic that the term ‘Darwin Award’ was coined by Atheistic evolutionist moonbats, yet they are the ones who are more likely to earn such an award.
    There may be ‘Islamostupidity’ for Muslims, but there’s also ‘Islamophilia’ for moonbats, (loving something which will kill you) as well as ‘homophilia’ (if anybody deserves a Darwin Award it’s homosexuals as they have sex but they don’t reproduce). I’m sure there are many more.
    Yes, the Darwin Awards were specifically written with moonbats in mind.

    In Newspeak, they restrict the language, progressively removing words. If you don’t have the words, it is difficult if not impossible to form the thoughts.

    1984 was not supposed to be a manual. This is doubleplus ungood.

    Bite the bullet??? what is he afraid of–that someone is going to throw a handful of bullets at him? Or worse yet take a mouthful of bullets and spit them at him?

    Aw,shoot. I didn’t mean nothing bad. That guy deserves a shot in the head. A shot in the arm? A flu shot? something like that.
