Westboro Baptists and other low-lifes

Posted by Troy on 17th December 2012 in Current Events, Political

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!

Westboro RE: In Defense of the Fistfight

Posted by Troy on 3rd March 2011 in Current Events

In a recent post, I defended the fistfight as a way of keeping civilization civil.  Now I have a “case in point.”

The Supreme Court has, correctly, defended the right for people to be assholes when they opted to defend the right of the Westboro Church to protest military funerals.  I agree, the government should not do anything in these cases to infringe upon the right to protest.  However, every person attending these funerals should promptly march over to these people and beat the snot out of them.  I doubt their convictions will hold up to getting their asses stomped into the ground several times.  They only act this way because we are letting them act this way.  I should also think that police should be very, very slow in coming to their aid.  After all, the police have no duty to protect you (see Warren v District of Columbia). 

Just saying.
