MSNBC: 1st Amendment Is At Risk From The 2nd Or Something

These are the same people who do everything in their power to stop people from speaking if they consider it Wrongspeak. From people practicing their religion (well, if they’re Christian or Jewish. They’re afraid of the Religion of Peace). From petitioning for redress of grievance and protesting if they are the Wrong People. They’ll also do everything they can, just make stuff up, in order to disarm Other People

Kyle Rittenhouse’s not guilty verdict gives protesters a new threat to worry about

During the civil rights movement, protesters had to fear fire hoses, dogs and tear gas. Now, with the acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse, not only will protesters continue to fear excessive police force, but because a Wisconsin jury found Rittenhouse not guilty in the killing of two protesters and the wounding of another, random gun-toting vigilantes with their idea of “law and order” also present another very present danger.

In this sobering moment for the American justice system, the Second Amendment has outweighed the First. Because of the unwillingness of politicians or the courts to deal with the proliferation of guns in America, despair, disdain and distrust continue to permeate our everyday lives. Vigilantism, not protesting, is the preferred form of dissent in America.

Rittenhouse’s acquittal is representative of the primacy of the Second Amendment. His killing of Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber at a racial justice march in Kenosha and then his being found not guilty send a clear message: White lives who protest for Black lives matter don’t matter. Bringing a gun to a protest is OK, especially if you feel threatened by the protesters’ message. And if you say you feared for your life as you killed someone, you will be exonerated — if you are siding with the police and not those protesting the police.

Well, now, to fully fisk this could take hours, but, is it worth it to spend that much time on barking moonbat Fascists? The 2nd Amendment actually protects the 1st. There’s zero problem with the 1st when “protesters” aren’t looting, pillaging, starting fires, destroying businesses, homes, and vehicles, attacking police and other citizens, running riot.

Meanwhile, CNN mostly lets the cat out of the bag

Why some US cities are facing a spree of ‘smash-and-grab’ crimes

A wave of “smash-and-grab” crimes is plaguing upscale stores in major US cities, with mobs of thieves making off with expensive goods in brazen, nighttime raids.

At least 18 people broke into a Nordstrom department store in Los Angeles Monday night and stole thousands of dollars in merchandise, the city’s police chief said. (snip)

So why so many recent incidents? Are they linked to the holiday season? Is it pandemic restlessness?

Nope, this was happening before the Chinese coronavirus, and happens in times other than the holiday season. So, why?

Such cases aren’t always a priority for law enforcement

There almost no priority in places like San Francisco. Who made it that way? Democrats. CNN forgot that part.

One reason for this is law enforcement’s lack of resources, which means theft cases sometimes are put on the back burner, he said. And, he added, the “defund the police” movement has sapped some officers’ morale.

The cops won’t bother because the leftist cities and prosecutors will not prosecute.

Thieves may face few consequences

The decriminalization of low-level offenses in some states has created opportunities for criminals to manipulate the system, said Lynda Buel, president of Ohio-based security consulting firm SRMC.

For example, Proposition 47, a California ballot initiative passed in 2014, sought to alleviate prison overcrowding by reducing the penalties for some crimes. The measure raised the threshold for felony theft from $500 to $950.

Democrats. This is what their policies bring. And then the same idiots who voted for these Democrats and policies complain about them when they get hit themselves. Boo hoo. Let them stay in the areas and live under the consequences.

Meanwhile

(Fox News) San Francisco Mayor London Breed announced that the city will limit car access to the city’s popular shopping district, Union Square, in response to the mobs of thieves that have ransacked high-end stores in recent days.

“We’re going to be making some changes to Union Square and how cars are able to access,” Breed said at a press conference Saturday. “There will be limited access in terms of when you come to this area.”

So, punish everyone, instead of going after the criminals. Typical. Did you know that San Francisco is rated a 2 by Neighborhood Scout, meaning that it is safer than just 2% of U.S. cities? Murder and rape are right in line with national rates, assault is just above, but, robbery and burglary are elevated. Theft is three times the national average, and motor vehicle theft is a bit over double the national rate. You have a 1 in 18 chance of being a victim of a property crime. We think of Chicago being a crime ridden cesspool, but, only a 1 in 33 chance of property crime in Chicago. Though, in fairness, much better chance of being the victim of a violent crime in Chicago. 1 in 105 vs 1 in 145.

    Kyle Rittenhouse was one man, who ably defended himself against three criminals attacking him, two of which were convicted felons, but MSNBC sez “Vigilantism, not protesting, is the preferred form of dissent.” Just how many of those Mostly Peaceful Protesters™ threw Molotov cocktails, started fires, burned down buildings, and looted businesses? How many of them rioted in Portland and Seattle and Minneapolis and foul, fetid, fuming, foggy, filthy Philadelphia, causing billions of dollars in damages, yet opinion columnist Anthea Butler thinks that the real problem is that a very few people trying to protect life and property are the problem.

    Stupid leftists. The american democratic party used to champion civil and human rights. The right to self preservation is the most basic human right. Without it, all other rights are imaginary. Why do modern democrats hate humanity and civilization so much? Do they really need to burn it all down so they can rebuild it with themselves at the top?

    Communism killed over 100 million people in the 20th century. Modern democrats are saying, “hold my beer”.
