There has been a drastic change in our country. Over the last several years, we have gone from a country that defends freedom to one that does not defend freedom. People used to hold to free speech and freedom of expression. Now, there is violence in the streets over political ideas.
We now only believe in freedom to express opinions with which we agree. People want to silent each other. People want the opposite opinion to be outlawed. And this marks the end of the experiment of our Founders.
Two people have been arrested for assaulting a man who was waving a Donald Trump sign and American flag in Meriden on Saturday.
At noon on Saturday, a Meriden Lieutenant was parked on Hanover Street where he saw a man standing on the traffic island at Hanover and Colony Streets waving a Donald Trump sign and an American flag.
Police say a silver car stopped at the island, two men got out and began punching and kicking the man, knocking him into the street. The Lieutenant intervened and arrested the two men. The victim told police that the two men gave him the finger, he responded “same to you” and then the assault started.
This kind of thing was exactly what our political system was designed to prevent. Thus, we can see that if there is no moral restraint in our citizenry, we have no chance at keeping a free society.
We can now expect that we will move closer and closer to might makes right.
