It is no secret that the left dislikes many things. They are seemingly an ideology built entirely upon dissenting law and tradition. But once their dislike moves from taking issue with political concepts to actually advocating breaking and ignoring laws that do not suit their vision, we have trundled into new and very dangerous territory.
I am no more bound to law than are they. If they break the law because they do not like or agree with them, do they have a moral leg to stand on to demand I obey law, or worse, defame me for not agreeing with their ignoring law? If lawlessness is what they want, I can give it to them. I mean that with every fiber of my being.
I have said a million times I hate liars and hypocrites. Yeah, I hate Marxists too, but as an American they have that right and I respect the Founding documents, so I legally respect the right of idiots to be Marxists or idiots – same/same. What does one think my usage of the phrase “I will not wear a Star of David and line up for the concentration camps” means?
It means I am no longer bound by the rules of civilization if said civilization deems me an enemy for nothing more than to DEMAND they adhere to the same laws we all are bound to respect. I will not go quietly. I will not go at all. And of course no one is rounding anyone up for concentration camps, although some lefties have advocated that very thing with words like “round ’em up,” but I will assume that was hyperbole – FOR NOW!
What does it state about leftism when it advocates that it’s all good for illegals to enter this country, ya know, ILLEGALLY? What does it say for lefties who think we should ignore the laws? What does it say when we are called hate mongers and racists for wanting laws to be obeyed and upheld by the civil authorities? I did not write the laws, but I am subject to obey them, and so are the leftists and those here illegally.
It would seem leftists do this about many things,, not just immigration, which I am all for – LEGAL IMMIGRATION! But ILLEGAL is illegal, and they do not get to pick and chose which laws suit them or not. Society is in danger when the left plays this game.
The last year has clearly shown citizens are very unhappy with the direction this government is taking. Our protests are legal, orderly and as Hillary Clinton stated during the Bush years “Dissent is not unpatriotic.” (paraphrased) She railed that conservatives dare not call leftist protests unpatriotic. Yet now my peeps expressing our patriotic right to legal political assembly and dissent is called hate. Once again – par for the course – leftist hypocrisy shines bright.
When any organized portion of society openly advocates ignoring the law it is but a short step to many worse things. Denying Jews in Germany the rights of German citizens led to laws against them. That led to Kristallnacht, which led to worse. No, I am not claiming the American left is headed there, but it is demonstrative of the progression of law disregarding.
Law and society only works when the laws are upheld. How long will that be a reality when there is a cadre of those who will break the law and advocate everyone do so for their political ideology to manifest into reality?
Has the reader seen the weekend protests in Arizona? Rocks and bottles thrown and rioting the result, yet media reports the protests there as “peaceful.” Clearly the video tape proves this is spin. And when my folks protest we are called “ugly,” and they are trying to create a mindset that Tea Parties are violent when the evidence is that is not in any way true, and video proves that evidence as well, yet still the lefties run as fast as they can to defame and destroy those they disagree with.
So lefty protests as we have seen for more than 40 years are riotous but that is A-OK because to the left their ends do justify their means. I most stridently caution them against this. If law broke down, do they imagine it would be to their favor? Without saying more, trust me, it will not. Lawlessness as the order of the day will see me and mine behave similarly. No matter how boastful and arrogant some of those who advocate the leftist position may be, they fool themselves if they think such realities will be good for their cause.
But more than anything else, what does it say about an ideology that openly embraces lawlessness? That is the real issue here. How bereft of merit can they be if law breaking is their official position? How lacking in moral justification are they to advocate that illegal actions are fine and well so long as their end is reached?
Would it be okay if my folks took that position? What if my goal was to eliminate Marxist thought and I used the mantra – as do they – the ends justify the means? How valid an ideology can leftism be if the law and our Founding prevents them from achieving their political ends by strict adherence to law? If they have to advocate ignoring law or openly breaking law to achieve their goals, they are clearly without morals. Oh sure, they have their own set of morals, but so what.
Do I get to make my morals the laws of the land? They sure seemed to not like it when the Moral Majority tried that, yet now it’s them trying to do it, why that’s as it should be, right folks?
Society will not survive when any major ideology can convince their adherents that laws they don’t agree with can be ignored to suit them. Moral justifications for such efforts will see a complete breakdown of order, for if they do not have to obey the law, neither do I.
Should I assume “good for the goose, good for the gander” and then act according to my moral wishes? Anyone wanna bet there would be a lot of ugly and even more whining and crying like petulant eight year olds if me and mine decided to act like they do? That’s where this is going. They fool themselves if they think I will be a victim of their disregarding law.
I give as good as I get. Something tells me they would think themselves abused by such acts, and in this case, they would be right. So careful what ya wish for lefty. I can promise you if you insist in this type effort, it will see me and mine take your lead. You take the law into your hands and we will too.
Not a threat, just the damned truth. Okay, let the whining and moaning commence!
