The Militant Left: Rejecting Discussion and Debate and Aim for Conquest

Written by Allan Erickson on July 17, 2018

A church posts a sign saying the LGBT agenda is a hate crime against God. The church is evicted by its landlord.

A famous pizza guy uses the N-word in a conference call. A gym in his hometown named for him is renamed, and he is forced to resign.

Another person states an objection to abortion, goes undercover to conduct investigative journalism focused on Planned Parenthood, and he is arrested and charged with 15 felonies.

A baker is fined, threatened, run out of business and condemned for respectfully declining to decorate a wedding cake for a same sex couple.

A photographer is fined and sanctioned for respectfully declining to photograph a same sex ceremony.

A florist is prosecuted, threatened and persecuted for respectfully declining to provide flowers for a same sex ceremony.

A 5th grader in school expresses an opinion about homosexuality being against God’s law as stated in the Bible, and the student is threatened with discipline and expulsion.

A college student supporting this President by wearing a MAGA hat is physically assaulted.

You may agree or disagree with this or that side of an issue, fine, but can we all agree that allowing mob rule and vigilante “justice” to prevail is a gross violation of our traditional understanding of the rule of law and the rights of the individual? Do we still understand the vital interdependence between the rule of law and individual liberty?

Individuals in leadership with the FBI, given the duty to sustain the law, break it instead to achieve political goals, then lie about it, blame others, and enjoy the support of Democrat leaders. All these are toxic to liberty, poisoning our way of life.

Only those in conquer mode reject rational debate, preferring criminal behavior, violence and persecution.
