Westboro Baptists and other low-lifes

First of all, the Westboro Baptist church members need their asses kicked as they are protesting the funerals of the dead children at Sandy Hook.  Several people in the past cautioned at becoming “overly civilized.”  I think we’ve reached that point.  There is no way in hell that people in the 1950s would have put up with this crap.  Freedom of speech is one thing, but this goes far too far.  Your speech has consequences.  No one in their right mind would go to Harlem and start yelling the N-word.  Why?  Because they would be beaten or killed.  Do they have the freedom of speech?  Yes, but we all know that there are levels of provocation.  If you are seeking to provoke someone, you reap what you sow.  This is not to demean the freedom of speech but merely to state the unspoken obvious: what you say has an effect on others and may elicit a response.  Freedom of speech is against the government, not against other citizens.  The government cannot discriminate against you just because you are critical of the government.  If you are critical of someone, they will probably discriminate against you in retaliation.

I also want to chastise the media.  They tell us that we should help the victims of Sandy Hook.  How?  There is no property damage.  Not all the money in the world could replace what was taken, nor would any parent have traded their child for all the money in the world even if there were left alive.  No, there is nothing that can be done except to stop talking about it.  Allow them to grieve and move on with their lives.  However, they will not let them do that.  The media loves plastering the pictures of the victims and the killer all over television because it’s great for ratings.  It’s so sensational.  Politicians are loving turning this tragic event into gun control propaganda.  I wonder if when they first heard about the shootings if their first thoughts weren’t about the poor children or the motives for such a senseless crime.  Instead, they probably thought about how great their ratings were going to be or how they could get their precious legislation passed.

I don’t believe that people are going to call for gun control any more than those who already do.  People have made up their minds on that issue.  I believe that most people understand that this was an isolated actions of a madman.  I should never wish to give away our freedoms at each such offense.  Millions the world round have suffered due to the Communist Manifesto.  Obviously, we should not have freedom of speech as what we write or say may cause the deaths of millions of innocent women and children.  See how this works?

Long Live the Constitution!
