Dissent is the highest form of patriotism. Unless Muslims or other protected species useful to the left are involved
…in which case, dissent is hatred, and intolerance, and we really need, as Americans, to get over our fetishizing of the First Amendment.
After all, lots of countries don’t treat free speech like we do — nor do they so obsessively protect it. In fact, the US Constitution is in a way barbaric, protecting such hatreds and intolerances and stuff that people get to say that “progressives” simply do not wish you to be able to hear.
Something must be done. A crisis taken advantage of. Like, maybe if somebody creates an inflammatory YouTube video, and people die as a result, and we can then do the sober, serious, and pragmatic work of breaking free from the self-righteous piety and purity of the Founders and Framers and get to work setting up fixes to stop the hatred and the intolerance from making its way into the public domain.
For instance, let’s take a close look at this sharia thing — not the whole thing, mind you, but the good and sensible parts…
The most disturbing part of all this? Is that many of our sleeping masses here don’t much care about the loss of free speech — after all, who is for tolerance and hate? — and they’ll only recognize the impact once they develop a viewpoint that challenges the leftist orthodoxy, at which point they’ll find it surreal that they are being pressured and persecuted for holding it.
And then we can laugh and laugh. Even as we weep and curse.
