Gilberton, Pennsylvania Police Chief Mark Kessler cannot fight his own battles, and apparently he has one with his insurance carrier and he may face termination from his job. So, the bombastic, semi-illiterate cop has taken to Facebook to bring gun enthusiasts to his little town. He calls Wednesday ‘D-day.’
Definition of D-Day: The day (June 6, 1944) in World War II on which Allied forces invaded northern France by means of beach landings in Normandy.
Apparently Kessler feels that threatening public officials and others of a different political persuasion in his community is conducive to law enforcement. He has called a reporter a ‘fat cocksucker’, displayed in a video how to shoot Nancy Pelosi in the face, and warned of an armed rebellion. Kessler called Secretary of State John Kerry a ‘shit bag’ just because. During John Kerry’s military tour, he earned the Silver Star, Bronze Star, and three Purple Hearts.
The hilarity of Kessler clutching his pearls is that he claims he has received death threats, but that’s after he has in fact threatened others. What I’m saying here is that he’s a pussy but with a butthurt militia.
Via Daily Kos:
44.49% of the people in Gilberton, PA are registered as Democrats while 53.09% are registered Republican and the remaining are independent: 2.42%. That said, it’s clear from videos produced by Mark Kessler that he loathes democrats, for instance, one of his videos is titled, “Shoot a Libtard out of a tree.” How safe are democrats who live in Gilberton? With his public disdain for democrats, I wonder how many people Kessler has already arrested, or will arrest, that will have all charges dropped if they are registered Democrats?
“Kessler is the head of a private militia called the Constitution Security Force (CSF) whose members swear an oath to “respond to the call if…needed to resist tyranny that seeks to destroy our republic.” CSF openly affiliates with the “Three Percent,” an insurrectionist movement founded by former Alabama militia leader Mike Vanderboegh
After receiving intense criticism for his controversial videos, Kessler escalated his threats in a Facebook post:
I will not stand idle while tyrants attack the constitution … If they want to fire the first shot let it begin right here in Schuylkill county … Every militia , every csf member who can attend please do … So come with your flags n your firearms. MOLON LABE … democrats are the true enemy of our country, our freedoms, our constitution, along with liberal news agency’s , liberal news reporters, much like hitlers nazis , time we clean these antiamerican thugs from office.
That should go down swimmingly with the town’s small population of only 765 (as of 2011).
As for the reporter he has consistently disparaged, there is no evidence of such except in his paranoid, illiterate head.
Getting fired is not an invasion nor is Freedom of Speech unconstitutional for everyone who is not Mark Kessler. And sometimes getting fired is well deserved, but if he belongs in a union, he can take his hurt feelings to them to deal with.
He writes on his Facebook page today (typos are his):
Wednesday is D-day, Gilberton Borough insurance carrier ( huge anti gun carrier )threatens to pull insurance if im not disciplined, I am expecting a large crowd of anti gunners, & anti constitutionalist to show up, many who have been threating myself, along with other borough personnel with death!, meeting will start at 7pm est at Gilberton borough hall, 570-874-4790 , received a letter today from the borough solicitor stating they will consider suspension! AKA termination
Why is he threating himself? Maybe Kessler just took a Ted Nugent in his pants.
Comments (typos and Republican caps theirs):
“Good luck, Chief Kessler! i hope they don’t terminate you. you don’t deserve it all your doing is protecting and fighting for our God given rights!”
“Good luck! Give em all you got in an intelligent calm well informed manor, make them look like effing fools!! If that don’t work… You know what to do, give them HELL! Lol God Bless, sending prayers your way sir!”<
“Ok, let’s see a huge turnout of PRO-GUN and PRO-CONSTITUTIONALISTS!!!! Let’s show some TRUE PATRIOT SUPPORT!!!”
“Damn man they push you you push them commien anty Americans harder”
This guy is ‘threating’ us:
There is a donations link where the chief has garnered $1,080.00.
I don’t know why he needs donations since the government he wants to rebel against with force, pays his salary and benefits. His worst offense is embarrassing his town while boring the rest of the country to death. He reminds me of a character in the really bad TV show The Following.
Hey Mark, calling us liberals is like telling us we’re pretty. Mark if they cut your benefits, think Obamacare.
