The confusion of the liberal left, specifically when it comes to the ideas of national pride and patriotism, has reached astounding and bewildering levels.
Mired in decades of emotional politicking and knee-jerk reactions to their own bleeding hearts, the leftists of our nation may have simply forgotten what the true “law of the land is”. You see, in the premier slot, we must address the First Amendment, which guarantees Americans the freedom of speech most importantly. For the left, the ideal situation would be to allow for infringements upon this right based on the emotions of those that words can offend.
This is, quite literally, the opposite of free speech. (And for the fact checkers looking on, I do mean literally). The monarchies of days past used to have their feelings hurt by those who spoke out against them, and that is why it was illegal in our less-enlightened times. Let’s not backslide into that nonsense, shall we lefties?
Of course, this doesn’t seem to concern any number of prominent democrats, who choose instead to smear conservatives as bigots, rapists, and racists with impunity. Don’t believe me? Just look at how far one Senator reached in order to bring up “white supremacy” in relation to American conservatives.
Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) told CNN’s “State of the Union with Jake Tapper” on Sunday that liberal activists harassing GOP officials in restaurants is justified, “because when you look at white supremacists and all of that, this is what is coming forth in our country.”
CNN’s Dana Bash asked Hirono, “Should the going after people at restaurants stop?”
“Well, this is what happens. They — because when you look at white supremacists and all of that, this is what is coming forth in our country. There’s a tremendous divisiveness in our country, but this is the kind of activism that occur, and people make their own decisions. If they violate the law, then they have to account for that,” Hirono said.
This is a stretch of the most heinous kind. It would be akin to complaining about Volkswagen’s emissions scandal by mentioning that the whole company was Hitler’s idea.
This isn’t a non-sequitur, nor is it even close to resembling a valid point. It’s purely fake news, and a dastardly game of word association that deserves to be ridiculed.
