In recent days various individuals and representatives of various groups have claimed that executive orders issued by the Trump administration do not represent “American Values”. I have found this particularly interesting in light of recent protests.
At UC Berkeley last night property was destroyed, people were injured, police were assaulted. All of this during a protest of a speech by a Breitbart news editor. Oddly, I was under the impression that “Freedom of Speech” was an American value. But it seems I was mistaken.
At The Women’s March in Washington speeches were given expressing vulgarities, profanity, and in one case discussion of bombing the Whitehouse. I thought, apparently mistakenly, that public decency was an American Value.
The simple fact here is that the left is only in support of free speech if they agree with what you are saying. They are only concerned about what their sons and daughters hear from national leaders, if those leaders are Republicans. So they run ads saying “Our children our watching, what kind of President do you want them to see?” But they have no problem with the filth that spewed out of the mouths of Madonna and Ashley Judd. In fact, their children weren’t just watching, they were brought to the event.
The truth is, we are going to have to take this nation back from the left-wing loons now attempting to control it. We have beaten them at the ballot box. We have beaten them in the courts. Now they want to reduce a difference of opinion to riots in the streets. I’m afraid we’re going to have to beat them there too.
Amazingly, though 6 people were injured and tens of thousands of dollars worth of damage done, not a single person was arrested at Berkeley last night. Clearly the police are either ill-equipped, or not motivated, to do their jobs. We may have reached the point where we need to do it for them.
We may have reached the point where the only reasonable response is a proportional response. Because people who refuse to have a discussion, or accept the results of an election, apparently understand nothing else.
IMHO the time has come to meet violence with overwhelming force.
It is sad that we have gotten to this place, but it is the left that has put us here. It is simply up to us, the sane, rational, normal people of this nation to decide if we will allow anarchists to tear our nation down one brick at a time.
I, for one, am not okay with that.
