Liberty Control becomes a farce with the absurd idea of knife Control.

Published

on

The Liberty grabbers have just parodied themselves into non-existence with the absurd notion of restricting edged weapons.

Let’s begin with this brutal reality: Bladed weapons can be easily made of any material that can hold an edge. They have been around for millions of years, they literally defined the stone age.

Anything that can hold an edge can be made into an easily concealed weapon.

They only need a material that can hold an edge and a way to make it sharp. These materials range from the stone to hard candy. with almost every solid material in between. It’s well known that these weapons are easily produced within the confines of maximum security prisons.

Nevertheless, the Liberty grabbers have gone to the absurd length of trying to control these weapons with calls for their removal from kitchens or detection by ‘Knife wands’. Not only are these weapons easily produced under the strictest of conditions but they can also be made of non-metallic materials, undetectable by non-invasive search methods. In addition, edged weapons can also be easily concealed, making them easily hidden from even the most invasive search methods.

Therefore, it should be obvious that society cannot control these weapons. Any attempts at the level of control necessary to carry out this task will inevitably fail. This type of control of Liberty will be to the detriment of the innocent since they will be rendered helpless in the face of criminal or terroristic threats.

The Liberty grabbers never give up trying to control people.

However, that hasn’t given pause to the Left in trying to push the authoritarian envelop into untold reaches of insanity. Never mind that Liberty control doesn’t work as advertised or that each failure means they will try to punish the innocent even further. Each failure of the Left’s Socialist national agenda only means they double down even more. Even the perennial “Cut down on the carnage” excuse fails since on balance because more people will be adversely affected by these controls on their freedom. Meanwhile, the government becomes more empowered while innocent people are killed.

The UK is showing everyone the future if the Liberty grabbers get their way.

The UK has reached a point where the sheer insanity of Liberty control has imploded in on itself. The imposition of private property controls (Intergalactic Background Checks) will be followed by gun registration. All of this setting for their final solution of Gun Confiscation, where the very same situation will happen, with the same tragic results.

It’s time to end the insanity of Liberty Control.

Repeatedly doubling down on the insane notion of trying to control the guilty by punishing the innocent has to stop at some point. We need to learn from their mistakes to halt this absurd process before it goes any further. As Benjamin Franklin once mused: “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” The people wanting to defend themselves will have to declare enough is enough with these absurd measures knowing that both Liberty and safety are at stake.

    Guns yesterday. Knives today. Piano wire tomorrow. All wire next week. Then sticks and stones. Avert your eyes.

    There is only one rational response to these people and that is to declare the obvious, which is that they are functionally insane, and institutionalize them.
    Only the threat of the loss of ~their~ liberty will have a chilling effect on this sort of irrational utterance and action.
    If you study recent history, ~real~ history, not the propaganda that is the standard fare for most current curriculum, you will soon find that the drift into insanity coincides with the ACLU efforts to close most of the Mental Institutions. Prior to the 1950s nobody would have dared even utter these ideas outside of a sand-boxed classroom setting where the many manifestations of insanity are discussed. To do so would be asking for a commitment order to be issued for an extended stay at the local Laughing Academy.

Louis Farrakhan refers to Ilhan Omar as ‘sweetheart,’ prompting zero outrage

Louis Farrakhan refers to Ilhan Omar as sweetheart prompting zero outrage

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan referred to Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) as “Sweetheart” as he addressed her during a speaking engagement on Sunday. He apparently caught his faux pas and immediately justified the remark, but at that point the moniker which many consider to be sexist or misogynistic had already been noted.

Nevertheless, it didn’t cause the stir one might expect. As a far-left progressive, Omar is known for being a feminist icon on Capitol Hill even though she hasn’t been in office for a full two months yet. As our EIC noted, the lack of a rebuke was because of the source, not because she now feels it’s okay to refer to her as “sweetheart.”

The statement came as Farrakhan was telling Omar she shouldn’t be sorry for the statements she made last week about Israel, AIPAC, and Jewish influence in Washington DC, particularly over Republicans.

In a world where consistency was still considered a virtue, followers of Omar would be wondering why she’s not expressing outrage over the belittling reference from a powerful man. But the world isn’t consistent and Farrakhan always gets a pass.

Man fined £1,000 for outdated sense of humor

Man fined £1000 for outdated sense of humor

Jonathon Van Maren, a contributor for LifeSiteNews, recently stumbled across an article in the UK’s Edinburgh News about a construction worker who was arrested for “pointing and laughing” at a biological male who was dressed as a female (transgender woman).

[Author’s Note: It is impolite and unkind to point and laugh at others. This article is not an endorsement of such behavior.]

As Van Maren explained, a construction worker named Graham Spiers was walking with a group of friends. The group pointed and laughed while passing a transgender individual who, suspecting that his appearance had become the subject of ridicule, telephoned the police.

Spiers was arrested five day later.

Sherriff Robert Fife scolded Mr. Spiers’s sense of humor and actions:

Transgender insanity: Police now jailing people for laughing at men in women’s clothes

https://www.lifesitenews.com/blogs/transgender-insanity-police-now-jailing-people-for-laughing-at-men-in-womenSheriff Robert Fife also piled on, informing Spiers that, “Your offensive comments were not funny at the time and are not funny now. Your children should grow up understanding gender differences and would be ashamed at your behavior that comes from a different era has no place in today’s society.” Fife then told Spiers that in addition to the cash he had to pay to the biological man for laughing at him, he also had to pay an additional fine of another five hundred pounds.

Graham Spiers was ordered to pay a total of £1,000 for his actions “from a different era,” 500 of which was paid to the complainant.

Of the actions by police and the court in this instance, Van Maren opined:

It is disgusting enough that law enforcement would arrest and charge someone for this triviality. That alone indicates that freedom in Scotland is truly dead. But the fact that law enforcement then lectured Spiers on being a throwback from a different age (that different era being about a decade ago, for the record) and telling him his children should be ashamed of him? And that Spiers was expected to cower and listen to this tongue-lashing from his betters so he could get re-educated and realize that men could now become women and that laughing at their attempts was forbidden by law? That should absolutely repulse any liberty-loving person and terrify everyone who values freedom.

My Take

Pointing and laughing at others is unquestionably unkind. I am repulsed at the thought of such outward meanness. However, that this behavior so would be considered illegal and result in one’s arrest is punitive at best, and is undoubtedly a waste a valuable time and resources. Furthermore, the punishment in this case is brazenly excessive.

This is yet another instance of big government run amok. The Founders knew the dangers of big government. It would be prudent of us to heed the Founders’ advice, lest we find ourselves in the position of Mr. Spiers: subjugated beneath the arbitrary boot of “benevolent” governmental authority.

The anti-MAGA hoax epidemic

The anti-MAGA hoax epidemic

There’s a trend that’s been quietly, consistently rearing its ugly head against the President of the United States and his supporters since before the 2016 election. We’ve seen it among unhinged journalists, virtue-signaling celebrities, and Democratic politicians. We’ve seen it manifest in the ugliest form of hatred – the common hate-hoax – and it’s doing more to divide America than the source of the perpetrators’ anger.

They hate President Trump. They hate the people who got him elected. The hate the idea of making America great again because as much of the MAGA agenda comes to pass, they’re learning they’ve been wrong the whole time. I know first hand. I’ve been proven wrong myself.

No, I’m not a hate-hoaxer, but I’ve been against the President to varying degrees for over three years now. Before he officially won the GOP nomination in 2016, I opposed him because I felt he would do too much damage while delivering only a moderate amount of good policies. He wasn’t as bad as John Kasich or Jeb Bush, but we had Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Rand Paul as better candidates. Nevertheless, he won the nomination, prompting me to spend the final leg of the 2016 election without a horse in the race. I didn’t like the idea of Trump being President, but under no circumstances did I want Hillary Clinton to be President, either.

100% crowdfunded news. Please help.

After he won, I became a cautious but hopeful watcher. While we worked on alternatives to bring limited-government federalism to the forefront of local, state, and national politics, I took a case-by-case stance on the President himself. When he did well, I praised him. When he did poorly, I criticized him. This stance has remained until this day, though there have been times when I was more supportive or more critical, depending on the policy discussion of the day. Tax and bureaucratic cuts – good. Tariffs and bump stock bans – bad. The recent cave on the border omnibus – very bad. Most foreign policy moves (leaving Iran deal, leaving Paris accords, moving embassy to Jerusalem) – very good.

Unfortunately, it seems many on the left have been unwilling to recognize even the remotest possibility anything the President is doing is good. What’s worse is that some have been so aggressive in their desire to prove their point that they’ve pretended to be victims for the sake of getting their “victims’ perks” of love and affection from their peers while painting anyone wearing a MAGA hat as bigoted and hateful.

Thus, the anti-MAGA hate hoax was born and it’s been so prominent over the last two-and-a-half years, one must wonder how mainstream media and Democrats became so gullible that they fall for it every single time.

Andy Ngo at Quillette put together a comprehensive list of hate hoaxes that leftists have perpetrated to paint the President and his supporters as racists. It’s absolutely stunning when you see the magnitude of the hatred – THEIR hatred – that makes them willing to tell bald-faced lies just to prove the movement they oppose is as bad as they think it is.

I’ve had ideological disagreements with nearly every presidential candidate (let alone every President) since I became an adult. There’s nothing wrong with disagreement as long as one is willing to not be blinded in one direction or the other. There are plenty who blindly follow President Trump to approximately the same degree that supporters blindly followed President Obama. The herd mentality seems to have become the way of the political world in America for our last two presidents. But that blind devotion is simply an annoyance. The blind hatred that drives people to commit these hoaxes is far more dangerous.

It’s likely when the details are fully revealed regarding Jussie Smollett’s hate-hoax, it was driven more by a narcissistic desire to advance his career rather than pure hatred for the MAGA crowd or the President, but obviously the latter hatred played a role in his decision-making process. This type of action is never acceptable. We have enough outrage in America. There’s no need to manufacture even more for false reasons.

It’s time for the unhinged left to stop assuming every MAGA supporter is racist and start asking how the actions of those on their side of the political aisle drove massive amounts of people to support President Trump. Perhaps then, they’ll realize the hatred is coming mostly from them.
