At least the progressives are getting creative with their name calling.  It used to be simply racists, or extremists, but Hudson City New York Alderman Dave Marston was so creative in an email exchange this week.

At issue is the fact that the Hudson Common
Council is set to discuss a possible all-out gun ban on city owned
property this evening. Johanna Johnson-Smith, a main organizer for the
first NY SAFE Act protest rally in Albany last month, emailed Mr.
Marston to tell him she was planning on attending the meeting. Marston’s response was so dignified for a public servant.

(Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin who supports the 2nd Amendment posted the entire exchange on his Facebook page.)

Ms Johnson-Smith explains

most of you know, the City of Hudson in Columbia County is discussing a
City-Wide Gun Ban. No weapons would be allowed on ANY city-owned
property. As State Organizer AND a resident of Columbia County, I WILL
be at the meeting of Hudson’s Legal Committee tomorrow night when they
address this issue. About a week ago, I forwarded the very poignant
letter from the Saratoga Deputy, to the Mayor and Alderman of Hudson,
and stated that this was an example of how the majority of LEOs feel
about the sad state of our country. I received a response from Alderman
Dave Marston, and the guy just went OFF ! I am posting the exchange
between myself and Mr. Marsten here for your opinions.

is this? Is this about the Pledge of Allegiance or the S.A.F.E. act? Is
it a personal essay submission? I’m not clear why I was sent this and
what purposes it purports to serve? Please Advise.

Mr. Marston, This was sent to you as an Alderman of the City of Hudson,
so you can see where 98% of NY Law Enforcement stand on the NY Safe Act
before your Legal Committee decides to impose a Total Gun Ban in your
city. The VERY few Law Enforcement Officers that support the Safe Act,
about 2%, are all Democrats and Liberals who have never given a donkey’s
behind about the Constitutional Rights of the people who employ them.
Patriotic Americans like the Deputy who wrote this letter, are incensed
over the State and Federal attempts to disarm law-abiding Americans and
spit on the Constitution. We all know what the REAL agenda is, and we
will never allow it. Many of us will be at the meeting in Hudson on
2-27-2013 to make certain our voices are heard.

to me 
Dear Joanna Johnson-Smith,

really neat that all you gun toting tea party psychotards are so
interested in the goings on of our little City, even though I find it
amazing that you don’t have any other pressing issues before you in New
Lebanon. On the other hand, I guess its not surprising, considering you
ideologues aren’t interested in actual policy, but rather grandstanding
on mythical narratives of victimizatio

things: The only spit here is the white stuff frothing on the ends of
that rotten little mouth of yours from which you spew this hateful
ignorant trash
. And a donkeys behind? The rabid ignorance of the fringe
is best illustrated by its sad metaphors, I mean seriously, thank you
for the laughs.

all means, come on down, we’ll be happy to beat you barbarians back
with the clubs of reason & responsibility, radical lunatics that you
are. And say, a quick ProTip, since you’re the “organizer” for
unemployed guns nuts USA. Next time you think these unhinged rants will
change the mind of anyone who has even a modicum of intelligence, you
might instead just go back down into your basement & watch another
episode of wheel-of-fortune.
It’ll certainly be just as effective.
Remember: there are millions of Eagle Scout God Worshiping Patriots who
find you & your radical ilk as disgraceful to American Democracy as
the Brown Shirt jackboots you act like. I happen to be just one of them.
Good Luck.

Best Regards,
David Marston.

Come on…That response deserves some king of award for Creative Nastiness! Allow me to suggest that you contact Mr. Marston at and tell him what you think of his creative nastiness (I wonder if the president will have Mr. Marston at the White House so he can be a prop at his next anti-Second Amendment speech.
