Speech Is Violence, and Vice Versa

The apotheosis of the Left’s 21st-Century lunacy is its insistence that disagreeing with leftist dogma–declining to accept the “trans” farce, for example–is “violence” that demands suppression, while actual violence by leftists like Antifa–bashing people in the head with a baseball bat, for instance–is merely free speech exercised by “protesters.” No one in the world, with the possible exception of a handful of mis-educated college professors and students, is dumb enough to be fooled by that inversion. But liberals soldier heedlessly on.

Here is a today’s instance of the phenomenon. April Ryan, a CNN personality, suggested that Sarah Sanders’ head should be “lopped off.” Sanders’ father, Mike Huckabee, protested–whereupon Ryan accused Huckabee of inciting violence against her. You can’t make this stuff up:

No word on what incited James Hodgkinson to open fire on Republican Congressmen. Just guessing here, but maybe it was a well-known Democratic politician saying, “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.”

Still, to be fair, we have to give the Democrats credit: to my knowledge, they haven’t yet claimed that Hodgkinson was just exercising his constitutional right to protest.
