This post is to the local talk radio program caller who justified James Hodginson’s attempted assassination spree. His tight, bitter voice expressed his joy over the “irony” that the conservative congressman from Louisiana — who supports the right to keep and bear arms — was shot.
Then, in this Democrat’s further derangement, the caller added that James Hodginson was just exercising his Second Amendment right.
Dear deranged Democrat: There is no constitutional right to commit murder. Neither is there a moral right. There are both a God-given Commandment against murder, and human statutes based on that commandment against murder. Of course, your own party members fund lawyers who undermine the states’ power to punish murderers.
Democrats, your party has spent years spewing propaganda against conservatives. I have experienced the results of this hatefulness, personally, but the examples are many. If, for example, we conservative people are “killing the planet” then I suppose killing us is justifiable self-defense. You pull up short saying that, but your right to strike back violently is the logical next step after your numerous expressions of “outrage” over this and that. Your othering of conservatives, southerners, men, Christians, gun owners, and people who drive SUVs paves the way for your nasty little bands of rabble-rousers to be paid to show up and agitate violence at conservative political rallies. You feel perfectly justified in locking arms to shut down a street — an implicit threat against all others that you would do violence to them if they attempt to break your mob barricade, or that you would prosecute or sue them.
And, sometimes, one of your number takes it to the next level. James Hodginson is not a rare member of your movement. You radicalized him over your thin, ragged edge. From the NYC acting company, to Hollywood stars, from MSNBC to Democrat members of Congress, from Black Lives Matter rioters to the deranged, bitter local caller excusing James Hodginson, your party has worked itself into a rabid, foaming-at-the-mouth hatred — of about half the country. His own friend boasts that he was not crazy, just pushed into this by the “politics.”
Seriously, surely you are re-considering your political alignment. You don’t have to love Donald Trump. I don’t. I worship no politician. I have a healthy respect for the human nature tendency of those who govern, to abuse their power. I recognize that bigger government is just more opportunity for corruption and ineptitude to mess things up.
That causes me to vote for the most conservative politicians who run. None of your Democrat politicians fit that bill. None. Not a single one. There is no place in today’s Democrat Party for a loyal American who has any sense. If you are hanging in there as a Democrat, you should recognize the bizarre reality that your Party has become, and run. It’s not that the Republicans are so great, that’s for sure. But, here is how I see political alignment and engagement: I might be able to influence the Republican Party in a healthy, constitutional, liberty-loving direction. Your party? Gone full Marxist-nuts long ago.
