“Help I’m Being Repressed!” – The Writer in Black

Add in that as much as they scream about a “right to protest” there is no “right” to do the things they are doing.  There is no “right” to vandalism just because you call it “protest”.  There is not right to riot just because you call it protest.  There is no right to arson just because you call it protest.  There is no right to looting just because you call it protest.  There is no right to doxing just because you call it protest.  There is no right to breaking and entering just because you call it protest.  There is no right to detain people against their will (blocking traffic and otherwise interfering with people’s lawful free movement) just because you call it protest.  And there certainly is no right to assault and battery just because you call it protest.

There is no “right to protest” that makes illegal things legal.  There are certain things that the government is forbidden from prohibiting, certain rights you have that can be used for protest, things like free speech, a free press, the right to peaceable assembly (those things in the preceding paragraph are not peaceable, they are pretty much the exact opposite of peaceable), and the right to petition government for redress of grievances.  But criminal acts are still criminal acts even if done in the name of “protest.”

Yeah, this.

Incidentally, I am quite literally designing a throw pillow to embroider.  (For a friend.)

It is going to be two sided, so that he won’t scandalize relatives, but the relevant side starts: “Behold, the field wherein I grow my F-” and it’s sailor from there.

(So is he, actually….)

  1. I was just thinking that if your religion, ideology, or movement used torture or killing, even if said whatsit was the best thing since the Incarnation, said killing or torture was still open to condemnation.

    And then this popped up on my feed…
