“Then They Came For Me, But There Were None Left to Stop Them…”

Oh dearie, by the hairs of Jove’s Balls are the presstitutes ever outraged that their boyfriend turned on them as opposed to the gazillion times when he violated the rights of others, but “they said nothing, because they weren’t a [insert name of group being raped here].

“Yet few in the press are interested in any nuance. At his briefing, Carney hung to the word “unfettered” like a drowning man. He said over and over again things like the president believes in an “unfettered ability to pursue investigative journalism” but that there should be “balance.” The implicit reaction in the room was: “Balance? Don’t give us any stinkin’ balance. Give us our rights.”

In this, the reporters exhibited a healthy impulse toward vigilance about liberty. The phrase “chilling effect” has been bandied about often. A chill comes not necessarily from what government is doing to you but from what it might do to you. Very few reporters will ever have their records secretly subpoenaed by the government, but it is intolerable to them that it could happen. On top of everything else, it is the principle of the thing — an infringement, or even a potential infringement, on the constitutional rights of even a handful of reporters is an affront to all.

Indeed it is. If only those same reporters had felt that way when it was everybody else’s rights being violated.

The temptation to just point fingers and laugh at them is strong indeed, and it is very much well deserved after years of them ignoring the plight of millions of Americans being raped by their boyfriend Ogabe because it didn’t support The Narrative™.

Yet resist it we must, because it is true: The Ogabe Junta seizing records without even attempting to go the legal route and get subpoenas (which, given that they were investigating security leaks would not and should not have been a problem at all) shows not only a complete disregard for the Constitution, but also an arrogance not seen since Adolf Hitler crawled out from under his Landsberg Prison rock and proclaimed himself the savior of the German Race.

An offense against the least of us (and the presstitutes who actively worked to protect him for years certainly count among the least of us) is an offense against ALL of us.

Therein lies the difference between Our Side and Their Side: We don’t discriminate. Nobody is more equal than others. And if we hope to ever break down the divide between Us and Them and become one nation again, and it is our only hope to avoid that which we are all prepared to face but none of us want to face, then we must resist the temptation to act as they have done.

People get mugged by reality and sometimes that’s what it takes to wake them up. We know that was true for our own self.

If this serves to wake some in the OgabeMedia up, then we welcome it and we welcome them on our side. If not, then oh well. We’re not optimistic, a long life has taken most of our optimism away, but we’ll be damned if we’ll turn a potential ally away just because he was an asshole in the past.

We’d have to turn ourself away then, because we used to be the worst asshole of all.

Thatisall.

Actually, I AM going to point and laugh and tell they, “I TOLD YOU SO!”

Then we begin clearing the mess these morons helped create.

“Then They Came For Me, But There Were None Left to Stop Them…” Niemoller was a useless twat. The first two groups he thought he should have protected were the Communists and Socialists. Given that the guys doing the taking had “Socialist” in their name, who, exactly, did he think was doing all of the bad stuff to the poor,… Read more »

For all the good it does the Second – the government has never had much trouble infringing the shit out of any ostensible “rights” pertaining to arms of any sort.

The Fourth Estate Fifth Column are rightly indignant, but I predict that it will not spread even slightly beyond their concern about their own precious hides. They have ZERO concern about principles, which only get in the way of the consolidation of the Leftwing Junta’s rule, which they fully expect to participate in. They’re just pissed off about being hit… Read more »

Now, Fa Cube Itches, that little screed merely lists the groups in the chronological order in which they were persecuted. Socialists hate competition, even if it’s with other (i.e “wrong”) socialists. After all, communism and socialism are not about what’s best for the people, it’s about what’s best for those at the top. The ‘for the people’ crap is just… Read more »

Special Ed @ #: Yes, the Nazis (national socialists) were anti-communist (international socialists). Their primary disagreements were simply over which system would rule all, and which man should be venerated. As bad as they were, the Nazis were probably the better of the two as far as Johan Q. Public was concerned (though it’s a lot like saying getting punched… Read more »
