Tasing Violence At Occupy DC Gets CNN’s Erick Erickson Hot And Bothered

by Kaia Mursi

Pepper spray is OVER, folks. Hope you enjoyed all the funny stuff the unemployed section of Internet users put together about the cop from Angry Birds spraying everything, ’cause in 2012, vicious crack downs on Occupy protesters are going to be all about tasering: hard, cold, fast, and indiscriminate. Which means….exciting new opportunities are opening up for third-rate human impersonators like Erick Erickson to interrupt the erectile dysfunction ads on their AM radio shows so as to fatly chortle that “watching a hippie protester get tased [at Occupy DC] just makes my day.”

Savvy taser-promoters will make sure to follow Erickson’s example and direct listeners to some fetid corner of the Internet to enjoy the “hilarious” tasing footage that is “just made of awesome.” And who knows? If you’re loathsome enough, and lucky enough, maybe you, too, can get paid to loud-talk on CNN, just like Erick Erickson! [HuffPo/Media Matters]

It's essentially a nightlight power source.

GOPCrusher February 1, 2012 at 2:42 pm

A two million candlepower nightlight.

nounverb911 February 1, 2012 at 12:46 pm

"Erick Erickson Hot And Bothered"
Erickson's been dipping into the santorum again.

memzilla February 1, 2012 at 12:46 pm

"Don't tase me, bro — tase him!"

actor212 February 1, 2012 at 12:48 pm

If you tased Irky Irkson, you'd get a release of toxic gases. It's like microwaving a fart.

jus_wonderin February 1, 2012 at 1:03 pm

That is how the universe will end. Careful now.

HistoriCat February 1, 2012 at 2:26 pm

But what if you shoved the taser up his rectum? Would it act as a cork?

actor212 February 1, 2012 at 2:42 pm

As with all inflammable gases, it's only volatile when it comes in contact with oxygen.

JustPixelz February 1, 2012 at 12:50 pm

to fatly chortle that “watching a hippie protester get tased [at Occupy DC] just makes my day.”

That's just what Louis XVI said, en français, naturellement.

Chichikovovich February 1, 2012 at 1:39 pm

Let them eat volts.

JustPixelz February 1, 2012 at 1:51 pm

When I was a hippy they didn't have none of these new-fangled tasers. The police used good ole fashioned clubs. And the Erik Eriksons of the day could only fatly chortle that “watching a hippie protester get beaten [at ...] just makes my day.”

Man0nTheStreet February 2, 2012 at 3:01 am

It would only be appropriate to answer Le Chortler en français aussi – so what's French for "Up against the wall, Fatass"?

CrunchyKnee February 1, 2012 at 12:51 pm

Erick Erickson is a fuckhead, essentially.

Terry February 1, 2012 at 1:07 pm

I bet even his grandmother would agree with this.

cheaphits February 1, 2012 at 1:16 pm

He is scum and that's on his BEST day.

Naked_Bunny February 1, 2012 at 4:02 pm

Conservatism and a sociopathic sadism are commonly found together.

MozakiBlocks February 1, 2012 at 12:52 pm

The line to tase Erick, son of Erick, forms to the right. No pushing folks, everyone gets a turn.

dadanarchist February 1, 2012 at 2:24 pm

If only, but cheetoh dust and blubber don't conduct electricity too well, so I'm not sure it would actually hurt him.

CapnFatback February 1, 2012 at 12:52 pm

to enjoy the “hilarious” tasing footage that is “just made of awesome.”

Unlike Erickson, who is made of rancid beef hearts and fudge.

JustPixelz February 1, 2012 at 1:52 pm

HEY! That's my lunch you're talking about.

BarackMyWorld February 1, 2012 at 12:52 pm

Erick Erickson?
This guy?

Erick, son of Erick, pedophile in training. Where is the FBI when you need them.

How long do we have to go before they start making gas chamber jokes? If they haven't already, I mean.

bflrtsplk February 1, 2012 at 2:34 pm

Gas chamber jokes were an 80s thing. Where you been?

Callyson February 1, 2012 at 12:53 pm

Hilarious, huh? I guess this guy thinks "Oliver Twist" was a comedy too…

SorosBot February 1, 2012 at 12:53 pm

Why does CNN continue to pay this sick motherfucker again?

Blueb4sunrise February 1, 2012 at 1:04 pm

There's no such thing as bad publicity.

Beowoof February 1, 2012 at 1:11 pm

They are still trying to outfox Fox. Same reason they paid Beck.

MissTaken February 1, 2012 at 2:13 pm

CNN also infected us with the rants of Glenn Beck and Lou Dobbs.

SorosBot February 1, 2012 at 2:21 pm

True; they did at least eventually fire them for their offensiveness, so maybe they will finally dump Erick someday. But would it kill them to have an actual liberal on their network for once?

Biel_ze_Bubba February 2, 2012 at 11:30 am

Never mind liberals … how about just hiring people with class and brains?
You never knew if Cronkite, Chancellor, or Brinkley were conservative or liberal … you just got the news, presented in an intelligent manner. How fucking hard is that, CNN?

GOPCrusher February 1, 2012 at 2:47 pm

Do people actually watch CNN anymore? I don't think I've turned it on once since the 1st Gulf War ended.

Rotundo_ February 1, 2012 at 5:22 pm

CNN wants to attract a wide audience of yahoos, dolts and violent sick people, with Ewick you get the hole package. I think the only viewers left are the poor assholes stuck in Atlanta at the airport where they mercilessly set all the monitors to CNN and fuck up air traffic for the eastern seabord daily.

Biel_ze_Bubba February 2, 2012 at 11:32 am

Are advertisers actually looking to sell stuff to yahoos, dolts, and sick fucks?

Ahh, fuck it, … please don't answer.

Negropolis February 2, 2012 at 12:59 am

Ummm, because they are amoral CNN?

Maman February 1, 2012 at 12:54 pm

Did Erick say 'disturbing the peace' or 'disturbing the police'?

HateMachine February 1, 2012 at 2:20 pm

There's a difference?

freakishlywrong February 1, 2012 at 12:55 pm

I thought dissent was patriotic? Fuckstick.

Lucidamente1 February 1, 2012 at 1:00 pm

Only if you're a teabagger bringing a gun to a congressional townhall meeting.

JustPixelz February 1, 2012 at 1:44 pm

HA HA Like you have to explain the "bringing a gun" part.

Swampgas_Man February 1, 2012 at 7:30 pm

It's only patriotic if you have corporate backing.

SayItWithWookies February 1, 2012 at 12:56 pm

Erick Erickson, everybody — he's the Rosa Parks of sadistic authoritarianism.

terriblyfamous February 1, 2012 at 12:56 pm

Erick Erickson: King of the Asshats.

SheriffRoscoe February 1, 2012 at 12:57 pm

People PAY to have personal trainers run electric current through their bodies to analyze their body fat ratio. I don't see the hoopla about people getting tasered.

gullywompr February 1, 2012 at 1:03 pm

In that case, I suggest that police departments cut back on providing free services like this for homeless people.

GOPCrusher February 1, 2012 at 1:56 pm

Its only a matter of time before city governments decide that people should pay for being tased.

Crank_Tango February 1, 2012 at 1:47 pm

Slightly OT, but I read the following line last night, "…an electrified butt plug I already owned…" actually now that I think about it, it isn't all that OT after all.

Goonemeritus February 1, 2012 at 12:57 pm

This is what a police state with a budget looks like.

MissTaken February 1, 2012 at 12:57 pm

Dammit, just got my pepper spray and it's already out of style? Guess I'll spend my lunch hour getting a Taser. Being fashionable is soooo exhausting sometimes.

Lionel[redacted]Esq February 1, 2012 at 1:08 pm

Just remember that Pepper Spray is essentially food, so feel free to use your canister the next time you are at a fancy resturant.

SorosBot February 1, 2012 at 1:09 pm

I think the big current fashion is to carry both a Taser and pepper spray, so that you can always adjust your torture crowd-control needs to the situation at hand.

banana_bread February 1, 2012 at 2:18 pm

I've got your back, MissTaken! I hear red is in this year.

HateMachine February 1, 2012 at 2:23 pm

By the time you buy your taser, sonic grenades will be all the rage. Why bother?

Barrelhse February 1, 2012 at 3:17 pm

Be sure to get the the optional charger or you'll look pretty silly- take it from me.

Negropolis February 2, 2012 at 1:00 am

How very gauche of you. Everyone knows that tasers are the new blah.

Biel_ze_Bubba February 2, 2012 at 11:36 am

I wonder if clothing with conductive fabric will become all the style. On top of diverting the current away from the victim's body, short-circuiting the 20,000-or-whatever volts in the cops' hands might have interesting consequences.

Lionel[redacted]Esq February 1, 2012 at 12:58 pm

Erick, son of Erick, just likes the tasing video because the only way he can get off is by inserting an electric probe up his own ass.

Crank_Tango February 1, 2012 at 2:10 pm

This is what I was referring to when I replied to the Sheriff, above… http://www.twobigmeanies.com/blog/2006/12/13/lond

INSANELY NSFW, well depending on where you W, I guess…

HateMachine February 1, 2012 at 2:26 pm

Why should we help that asshole get off? Cock tasing just sounds like 'Friday night' to Erickson.

hagajim February 1, 2012 at 3:54 pm

Don't kid yourself…he's like the rest of the douchebags over there, a big fucking Chickenhawk. You stick a taser on him (anywhere) and he's cry like a baby before shitting himself.

I blame television. And you, Sly, Arnold, Bruce, and Vin.

When I was a kid I would rub my feet on the carpet to build static electricity so I could "tase" my brother. I have to admit, it was a lot of fun then.

I had a feeling all along that were my brother. Mom always said that kind of stuff built character… in me.

I await some numb-nuts causing serious harm to a protester and claiming that Erickson gave him the idea, followed by the standard "this-is-humor-i'm-sorry-if-I was-misunderstood" line. Sort of like Sarah Palin presented with the crosshairs over Gabby Gifford's name.

mercianomad February 1, 2012 at 1:21 pm

Erick Erickson just hates big government so very much, yes.

PsycWench February 1, 2012 at 1:25 pm

OK, just listened to the audio and I now believe Erickson's source of inspiration was less Reagan and more Eichmann.

prommie February 1, 2012 at 1:53 pm

Like I was just saying, they revel in the misery of others, feed on it like vampires on the blood of their victims. Erik would come all over himself if we have another Kent State. Oops, I should have said "when" we have another Kent State. Whats funny is, when it happens again, this time there will be no tide of revulsion, no, this time, the shameless hateful pigfuckers will love it, and demand more shooting of hippies, and then its just a small increment to shooting liberals, and hell, they talk about shooting liberals all the time, Anne Coulter, in fact, is their Madame DeFarge.

James Michael Curley February 1, 2012 at 2:09 pm

I went AWOL for four days after Kent State. On return when being 'addressed' by the XO, the world's revulsion at the events at Kent State made it easy to talk my way out of a Courts Martial.

I went over the hill for 3 days in Bangkok right after the Rooskies shot down the Korean airliner. Worldwide revulsion did not save me from 30 days restriction, 30 days extra duty, half-months pay for two months, and reduction in rate. But it was fucking worth it.

You mean the plane we used to test Rooskie air defenses?

Keep it classy, conservatives!

bagofmice February 1, 2012 at 4:53 pm

Remember, when talking family values about the party of Reagan, Gingrich, or Limbaugh, you have to specify the family. So it comes out like Limbaugh[1] or Gingrich[2] in standard C-style notation.

V=I/R
where I is the current through the conductor in units of amperes, V is the potential difference measured across the conductor in units of volts, and R is the resistance of the conductor in units of ohms.

So, it's just physics, no big deal. Why is everyone so bent out of shape?

Erick Erickson exercising his first amendment rights? Not taser-worthy.
Anyone Erickson disagrees with? Full of awesome taser-worthy.

Not doubt his father relished the videos of blacks being blasted with fire hoses and being set upon by police dogs.

Something else that gets the Right hot and bothered:
House GOP seeks to bar the use of welfare funds at strip clubs

I sent this as a tip to Wonkette, so I am not going to waste any of the prime snark I've been formulating as a secondary comment to your comment here.

chascates February 1, 2012 at 2:52 pm

Would any of that pertain to former RNC staff and a 'lesbian' club?

BaldarTFlagass February 1, 2012 at 4:25 pm

Jackpot! And then I had to spend the last 90 minutes in a fucking meeting away from my desk, the post about this is already 160 comments old, and my snark is probably all stale and shit.

SorosBot February 1, 2012 at 2:40 pm

Um, how the fuck are they supposed to monitor that? It's not enough that people are stuck being poor and on welfare; the GOP wants to tell them how they can spend the little money they do have. That's sick.

GOPCrusher February 1, 2012 at 3:22 pm

Where have you been since 1981?

GOPCrusher February 1, 2012 at 3:21 pm

Was not aware that this is a major problem.

BaldarTFlagass February 1, 2012 at 2:42 pm

Erick probably had to go change his shorts after he watched Ed Norton curbstomp the black guy in that movie. And not because he pissed or shit them.

Fresh puupy in a blender is his favorite drink.

On the rocks. By rocks, I mean chunked kitten.

I was only a very young lad, but I remember when they just shot you, or lynched you, or beat you insensible, if you protested. These young folks don't know how far we have come as a society. Ungrateful bastards.

ttommyunger February 1, 2012 at 4:16 pm

Erickson/Cantor they have more in common that their front name, and I think we know what that is.

mrblifil February 1, 2012 at 5:05 pm

Ha. Guess those mean things we've been saying about him for years are still rankling. This statement is tame compared to the one where he declared he'd shoot Census workers who came to his door. One of these days he'll probably explode in some combination of arterial/sexual/blunt object/gun violence behavior. Which will make my fucking day, when it happens.

Catabite February 1, 2012 at 8:50 pm

I'd be happy to tase Erick Erickson, so he can experience the awesome first hand. What can I say, I just want to share the zappy, heart-stopping love.

Negropolis February 2, 2012 at 12:54 am

A lot of shit gets Erick Erickson "hot and bothered" including, but not limited to:

1. A single flight of stairs.
2. 36 seconds of sexual congress.
3. And, uhhh…oops.
4. Walking a shopping mall parking lot.
5. Driving in the rain/snow.

I want to see Erick tased simply so I'd get the smell bacon being cooked.

Erick Erickson fans should be sure to read this Wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erick_Erickson – Some funny stuff!

Isyaignert February 2, 2012 at 1:59 am

Thanks – it's a virtual "who's Who" of 'effing losers.

Man0nTheStreet February 2, 2012 at 4:40 am

I think it safe to say all Wonketratti reluctantly knew that the repression and suffering of others makes Erwick-son-of-Erwick's pathetic penis-analogue all turgid and tingly with malicious, malodorous glee – perhaps not quite as much as when he shoves terrified kittens up his ass, but almost so, plus he gets to cheerlead the continued decay of democracy on his electonic zoo of self-hating political stupidity. We knew this about him, and we should not be too shocked at each forthcoming chthonic chortle. It's just the ReThuglican way.

IndianaKevin February 2, 2012 at 7:20 am

I found the video clip and the "news" photographer captured the before and the after, but not the tasing, leading me to believe it was edited out.

BaldarTFlagass February 1, 2012 at 2:50 pm

"Better" but not nearly as spicy. Can't beat that back-alley Patpong Road "Fido on a Stick" at heat setting number 8.

Right outside the main gate they had a cafeteria. You could go through and choose from about six or eight varieties of BBQ. Always interesting to see the heads of the real crackers explode when confronted with beef or chicken BBQ ‘This does not compute.’
