[su_upd] Cop Who Shoved CNN’s Don Lemon Fired For Oath Keepers Rant Vid
[su_right_ad]Earlier today, we tipped you off to a video of Ferguson cop and retired Army Sgt. Major Dan Page ranting for a full hour at an Oath Keepers meeting that our friend Karoli at Crooks and Liars and DU user 951-Riverside had discovered online.
Well, looks like Rant Boy’s career is over thanks to a number of progressive and liberal blogs publicizing the rambling tirade documented on Youtube.
After Don Lemon got up this morning and saw his email and tweets, he called the St. Louis County Police Chief about Dan Page’s hour-long rant at an Oathkeepers meeting. Lemon had a particular interest in this, since that’s the same officer who shoved him like garbage on the street during the protests in Ferguson.
Mr. Page has now been relieved of duty and ordered into psychological counseling.

I don’t get it_?_
don’t any of you understand that you are forcing them into an all out civil war? You’re suppose to be trembling in fear , fleeing to the polls to vote for white Republicans, joining up with them out of fear before it’s too late!
not acting like a bunch of little weak wussies and calling mental health!
dumb ass AMERICANS, they never will be united on anything!
and it went so well in Germany in the 1930’s!
reckon the Republican Congress will be having a ‘fire’ sale on Nazi paraphernalia on the national mall this weekend?

Plus a free Dixie Swastika “Styars ‘n’ Bars” flag with each purchase of “Mein Kampf”! Such a deal!

Good! And considering this racist prick’s penchant for stereotyping, he had better excuse himself from taking free stuff from the government. Let the Oath Keepers (euphemism for the KKK) fund his financial and personal needs!

hey, hey, HEY!!!
Since I’ve heard about Sgt. KuKu Krazy Reich Runt being carted off in the looney bin to wawa land, I’ve opted to backtrack a bit to see if I could note where the loonbodyme sparks were originating in this reject. It’s been a while since I’ve sought spiritual solace but I opted to check out my own New Testament. I hope they keep him away from his for a while. Opting to cover my own ass if the religious crowd opted to go wild, I decided to fulfill the biblical requirements for being a PROPHET OF GOD!!!
Right about now, Dan is probably the most rejected person ever. Not only has he been shipped out in a wackowagon (much like Major Burns in the original MASH) but even God has thrown his crazy white racist ass out; for it is written in MY New Testament that Jesus spoke and said:
am the way, the truth and the life; no man cometh unto the father but by
Whew! – good thing I got my PROPHET OF GOD qualifications.
I’ve been out of operations for some time so I’d like for my LL fellow citizens to remember me and flip some coins or something – see if I can luck up with Mrs. Betty Bowers…
if someone would just throw me a frickin’ bone or something-?-
WTF am I suppose to do now?

Racists can’t imagine why… Mr. Page has now been relieved of duty and ordered into psychological counseling! Tea Klan delusions ignite a mental HC boom for a saner America,

I fully support the congressional push to name the first FEMA detention facility “Camp Ronald Reagan”.

I know, Obie, it’s got to be puzzling as hell to them, probably the same as the Romney landslide when Obama’s re-election ‘CHEATED’ them out of the WHITE House. I think Alan may have been right when he diagnosed it as a nervous breakdown? We could actually be the cause of them snapping if we keep laughing at them and goading them? Shades is a nurse and knows more about this stuff than I do; maybe LL might consider having her monitor our wacky responses to their trolls first? Wouldn’t want to be responsible for starting an all out nationwide civil war because I was funnin’ around with a crazy! (oops! – a mentally unstable white racist republican)
(slipped out,- sorry)

i’ll try to keep my caps at a minimum when around them too, no telling what might set them off.

Imho, the Ferguson PD’s officials have known about Dan Page and his attitudes about certain person and issues for years. Mentioning that he’s been ordered into psychological counseling is the department’s attempt to attribute his behavior to some mental/emotional issue(s.) I’m not buying it. There’s no way anyone in the FPD who had repeated interactions with Mr. Page, wouldn’t have been able to figure out how he feels about a whole lot of issues/subjects. The fact that he didn’t mind having video of himself saying stupid sh*t on YouTube and other laces on the internet says to me that he wasn’t/isn’t afraid of having anyone know how he feels about any topic/subject. His superiors just considered him one of the ”good ole boys” and made a conscious decision to give him a free pass and hope and pray his behavior didn’t reflect badly on them and the department. Their mistake has now come back to bite them in their butts.

Interesting that conservatives often refer to liberalism as a ‘mental disorder’… yet… this.

Finally, something goes right,at least a little bit, for Ferguson.
granpa.usthai August 23rd, 2014 at 12:02 am
but don’t you think this might cast a negative light on Ferguson, Missouri PD? -maybe the state of Missouri? and quite possibly sheriffs all across America? I can just hear the laughter around the world now! – America protects and serves their population with heavily armed mentally defective white racist!
granpa.usthai August 22nd, 2014 at 11:31 pm
didn’t buy that Hamilton wrote the real constitution but what we have is the fake liberalized Jefferson signed by a bunch of illiterate founding fathers –
even with throwing in scripture?
gee, I wonder who ratted him out?
is trees a double agent?
-or a jealous boyfriend, maybe?
granpa.usthai August 22nd, 2014 at 11:41 pm
I hope the liberals realize they are the cause of this national nervous breakdown by putting that Hawaiian in the White House? You’ve probably already infected the minds of the weak inferior races of the verlt into believing Human Rights is a more noble cause than the rule of the master race too! SHAME ON YOU!

Watch him. The next thing he’ll do is write a Facebook post blaming someone else for his own words and actions and for losing his job, and the usual mouth-breathers will rally to his defense. People like Dan Page are so ignorant, imo. They post their beliefs on Facebook, blogs, and on YouTube and then get upset when someone uses them against them. The lesson they haven’t learned yet is if you don’t want to be confronted with your words and actions or have them used against you, don’t post sh*t on the internet. and don’t say/do stupid stuff in public. Nothing on the internet ever goes away forever.
When many on the right went nuts in 2009 when the Bush-ordered HHS report was released, sh*t like this was the reason. They were protecting their own. I never understood why so many on the right were butthurt about the fact that far right terrorists are a threat to our society, since one would think they are able to distinguish between mainstream and far right republicans. Their freak out at the time told me what I needed to know–the GOPTPers knew (and know) they were/are harboring and giving support to far right individuals like Dan Page, Cliven Bundy, Louie Gohmert, Antonin Scalia, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Steve King, Scott Lively, Pat Robertson, Sarah Palin, and others. Their fake outrage in 2009 accomplished the goals they wanted—covering up just how dangerous these people are to the continued existence of our democracy, and that they are welcomed by the GOPTP with open arms.

He’ll have an interview with the Foxtitutes by Monday morning, during which the Foxtitutes will put on their most poutraged faces and blame Obama’s hatred of white people.

I’ve been of the opinion for years that these people need mental evaluations and help. There is no doubt that they are delusional.

Hold on, Dave, Officer Crazypants hasn’t been “fired,” he’s just been suspended pending a review by the Internal Affairs unit, which process will begin Monday. I’d imagine it’ll be a couple weeks before they make any determination, which may well include termination, but still, it’s a bit early for the munchkins to start singing.
And though CNN speculates idly that the review process may well include a psychological evaluation, that hardly constitutes “being ordered into psychological counseling,” as Karoli so colorfully put it in the Crooks and Liars piece.

Yes, you should change the headline and some of the text.
