During the several decades of my life, Los Angeles has burned, the campus of Berkeley was fire-bombed, Portland had heads bashed, New York City had marchers clogging the streets demanding the killing of police officers, Occupy Wall Street did millions of dollars of damage to any place they formed, ANTIFA has destroying property and injured people, and Hillary mobs beat Trump supporters in the months prior to the 2016 election. And one must not forget the illegal actions by the FISA court, the FBI, the CIA and the Justice Department as members of the Obama administration tried to get Donald Trump defeated or imprisoned, they didn’t care which, as he ran for the presidency in 2016.
None of the leftist crimes listed above received any punishment that I’m aware of. The leftist news cable channels were always careful to remind us to “understand the rage” the rioters and arsonists were feeling as they did their evil deeds, and that was the end of the story as far as they were concerned. The police forces, the mayors and the governors of the locations where these outrages occurred were evidently amused by them, and the perps got off Scott-free.
But in the last two months, as the governments of too many cities and states have unconstitutionally locked down nearly all commercial transactions, several conservatives have decided to reopen and run their businesses in spite of the leftist orders to the contrary. And these people, who behaved peacefully and did not burn one building nor hit anyone’s head, are being visited by the police, and are even going to jail.
So outright violence in which citizens are injured is forgiven, but acting in a peaceful, mature manner not approved of by leftist officials gets you cuffed and jailed. And at the highest level of government, a plot by the FBI to keep Donald Trump and his newly-appointed National Security Advisor, General Michael Flynn, from taking office, or at least to get them removed after the swearing-in ceremony was completed, goes unpunished, and would have been entirely buried and forgotten, with no notice at all, if Hillary had been elected to the White House and not Donald Trump.
When trying to support your family and keep your business going becomes a crime, it’s a serious and uncomfortable thing to observe in a supposedly free nation protected by a constitution. And the Democrat lie that keeping everyone locked in their homes for months on end is “protecting” citizens from a disease, when the virus in question is greatly less deadly that the annual cold and flu season illnesses we deal with every year, is a communal and intentional lie that must be exposed daily and hourly as the Democrats try to intimidate us and convince us to be docile and obey their orders.
Democrats undermine the constitution and defy common sense with everything they do, and Conservatives just want to support their families and protect their investments. But only the latter are defiled by the leftist press and put in jail.
