Since the RNC started, and through the four days of celebration and volunteerism for the Gulf region, the leftist protesters have raised the bar, challenging enforcers of the law, disrespecting the political process, and attacking Republican delegates.
Ask anyone on the left who is to blame: The Republicans.
I guess we bring it on ourselves, right? It is what we get for being conservative or libertarian minded individuals. And since we don't agree with your views, it is your first amendment right to destroy personal property, physically attack innocent citizens, and cause general mayhem in the name of... peace?
Grow the hell up you damned fools! Educate yourselves on what the first amendment REALLY says:
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."The freedom of speech does NOT include:
*Destruction of property - including breaking windows and other vandalization
*Assaulting fellow citizens - including throwing bleach on the backs and faces of Republican delegates
*Violation of civic law - including littering, tearing down street signs, attacking fellow citizens, massing with intent to harm peace officers, etc. All of which is witnessed in the following video.
Let me guess - the Republicans made you do it?
Don't blame the GOP for a Democrat mayor enforcing the laws of St Paul. Chris Coleman is a Democrat, and mayor of St. Paul - and therefore responsible for all police activity within his city limits. The RNC was an event, the delegates private citizens, and the city full of private property. The job of the police is to protect the citizens and their private property, and uphold the laws of the city, and the state.
If you got clubbed - take some responsibility for your actions leading up to the event.
If you got maced - take some responsibility for your actions leading up to the event.
If you got arrested - take some responsibility for your actions leading up to the event.
It was not the Republicans fault - it is the fault of the individual who parades with mobs hell bent on breaking the law and assaulting their fellow citizens.
Civil Order is not a Republican Conspiracy - it is a code of moral and ethical values shared by citizens of a territory. When you break the codes, the officers paid to enforce the codes of law are able and willing to right the wrongs.
Grow up and take some responsibility for your own actions.
