M2 - The Fascist of BaseOps.Net
Give a guy a little bit of authority, and if he is of poor character, he will abuse it. This is seen with bouncers, mall security guards, cops and even internet moderators. Take for example M2, a retired military officer who moderates FlyingSquadron.Com, and who consistently threatens to ban those who share views he does not approve of on the forum he did not create.
When I see his handle I think the M must stand for monarchy, the authoritarian government he cherishes. I imagine the "2" must stand for the two things he deserves most from America. The first being tar, and the second being feathers.
M2 only bans people for crazy views, of course. Views like that military officers have to abide by the oath they took to the Constitution, and the view that state laws passed which violate the Constitution are null and void. M2 will not tolerate views like these, nor will he tolerate the opinion that a jury of senior military officers likely got a decision correct during a court martial. He also doesn't approve of outrage over the fact that an American was arrested while passing through a certain state, while moving to a new state, because he had legally owned firearms in his private vehicle where he was found sleeping at a rest stop. In the mind of M2, the man deserved the arrest and the five year prison sentence. Of course, M2 never fails to mention that after every firearm purchase he makes, he plans to lose them in a boating accident.
He may not be quite consistent, but he is consistent in one area. If you disagree with M2, then you are a "troll" pure and simple, and you will be banned.
FlyingSquadron.Com likes to talk about having a thick skin. And yet the board is moderated by an insecure three year old in an old man's body, who can't tolerate those who disagree with him. Especially not if they do so intelligently. He absolutely hates that. He's an insecure idiot with a diploma-mill fake degree, and a government job (of course). He has little going for him. He is this guy. Except he acts like that online.
He is M2, by God, and he's from the great state of Texas! Except mentally, he would be more comfortable in the heart of New York City, or perhaps Chicago. His views are un-American, and his values are most certainly not of the Texan variety. He gets confused and thinks otherwise because of his "get a rope" style love of law enforcement and the display of government force against citizens. He works with them regularly, and he likes a "stop resisting! get on the ground!" approach from government. He's learned to "take control of the situation" as a moderator, and put those skills to use. There will be no "contempt of moderator" on the board he took over, after its creator passed on. "What did you say, boy? You think an Air Force jury did the right thing? You getting smart?"
M2 defends the cops who violated the law and disarmed a veteran who was legally exercising his rights. He will tell you that Army veteran is worthless. The hatred and the venom bubbles from his mouth, as M2 discusses the veteran who complains about his rights being violated by armed police. He thinks that guy deserved everything he got and should have quietly and submissively, accepted the government force used against him despite the fact he had broken no laws.
M2 is quite simply a fascist, like those our grandfathers fought in World War II. M2 loves to collect guns, and I would imagine somewhere in his collection he's probably got one or two from that war of the German variety. I bet he celebrates those pieces of his collection above all the others. M2 respects a "strong" government, he despises our Constitution, and he is ever so annoyed by talk of liberty and rights and oaths, blah blah. M2 has no time for that nonsense. Rather, he worships at the altar of government force and if the government is using force against an American - then that American deserved it. Period. You can see his fascist commitment to government against its citizenry when he moderates, as he trains young officers to be submissive online by demanding they change their views or censor their views to fall in line with this viewpoint. M2 makes sure any discussion remains "state approved."
In a perfect world, every time he grabs his retiree military ID, it would burn his North Korean hand.
