My, how things have changed over the past few months.
I made a prediction before the Presidential Election about the violence that would follow -- if Hillary won, then militias and the likes of Richard Poplawski would have tried to take matters into their own hands, making a more planned out, methodical approach to their violence. But if Trump won, the violent backlash would have been instant.
Well, we can say that I was right about the latter.
So far, there have been violent anti-Trump demonstrations in nearly every major city in the United States, not to mention across Europe. The day after the election, a person was dragged out of their car, severely beaten and burglarized at an intersection We've seen Trump supporters put in hospitals, beaten nearly to death, Antifa shitbags who are protesting over people they've never even heard of and know nothing about. We've seen fire set to businesses and police targeted. We've seen celebrities call for violence, and Kathy Griffin playing the victim card over the backlash due to her sheer stupidity. And we also had Loretta Lynch's thinly-veiled call for violence in March. And the truly horrifying thing about all of this is that it seems almost normal.
Yesterday somebody fired shots into the truck of a Trump supporter in Indiana, and by now we all have heard of James Hodgkinson's shooting of several Congressional members of the GOP at a baseball practice in Alexandria. We have learned that Hodgkinson is a long-time socialist, supporter of Bernie Sanders, and frequently watches Rachel Maddow on MSNBC.
So, who is to blame for all of this? If you ask the average Democrat, they'll blame the Electoral College, although it's quite possibly the most important safeguard in the presidential elections that we have. If you ask Hillary Clinton, she blames everybody but herself for the loss of the election. If you ask complete morons like Michael Moore, it was clearly the gun's fault.
And the truly horrifying part about all of this, is that liberals, you know -- those kind, wonderful people who wear their virtue on their sleeves for all the world to see? Yeah, those liberals -- they are demanding even more Republican blood to be shed.
You might want to blame some part of the political machine for what happened in Alexandria. Is Rachel Maddow, who filled Hodgkinson's head with socialist bullshit to blame? No. Is Michael Moore, who would blame the number of guns in the US, to blame? No. Is Bernie Sanders to blame? He's too stupid to blame to begin with -- so, nope; can't blame him, either.
The only person who is to blame for what happened in Alexandria is James Hodgkinson. And he paid the ultimate price for his inability to separate his socialist bullshit from reality.
That being said, this problem is going to get worse in the United States, and celebrities need to accept some responsibility for the violence that is being perpetrated against conservatives in the United States. If Hillary Clinton was POTUS, and Ted Nugent made such threats against her, you'd be calling for his head on a platter. But, as the adage goes, your right to swing your first ends where my body begins. So, you primitive, leftist, fatheads -- listen up!
There is no circumstance in which you have the right to assault anyone because of their political opinion. I don't give a flying shit how badly some Trump supporter is taunting you or how angry you get when you see Old Glory waving -- you do NOT have the right to attack someone because of their political perspective. You love to apply the First Amendment to yourselves, but you will be damned if you apply those same rights to a conservative. You can't pick and choose who gets to have free speech rights -- it applies to every American who calls this great land "home". You are not the arbiter of personal freedom. Inalienable rights are those that no one can grant you or take away. If you don't like it, then you have three options:
1. Move to a country where your Marxist or Hitlerian views are accepted.
2. Get over it.
3. Die unhappy.
But do not be surprised when the other person defends themselves and puts their first right through your nose.
