Why did he have to be Klansmen? I HATE the Klan.
Over the years I have found myself defending the rights of the Nazis, SDS, the Klan, Charles Manson, the John Birch Society, the gay rights community, Sons of Slobivia, Sons of Bitches and a plethoria of other people I have no use for.
So far over the past couple of weeks I have had to defend the rights of the people of South Carolina to fly whatever flag they want over the Confederate Memorial. Now I am forced to defend the rights of the Ku Klux Klan. Again.
Like it or not, they have a right to privacy just like everyone else. Seems the president wants to make them identify themselves.
How about no?
How about you leave them alone.
What's actually going on here is the old tyranny game of divide and conquer. You find an unpopular group like the Klan and take their rights away from them. That makes it easier to take the rights away from the next unpopular group that comes down the pike. After all, the precedent has been set.
After that it becomes a hell of a lot easier to take everyone else's rights away.
I just saw something on Facebook that made a whole lot of sense. It was actually posted by a liberal. It is likely one of the few things I agree with that he has posted.
Don't like Gay marriage? Don't get one.
Don't like cigarettes? Don't smoke one.
Don't like abortions? Don't get one.
Don't like sex? Don't do it.
Don't like drugs? Don't use them.
Don't like porn? Don't watch it.
Don't like alcohol? Don't drink it.
Don't like guns? Don't buy one.
Don't like your rights taken away?
Then don't take away someone else's.
Anyone that thinks that taking away someone else's right is going to make them safer is nothing but a damned fool. By taking away someone else's rights you're making t a whole lot easier for Big Brother to take away YOURS.
Incidentally the Klan wants to hold a rally at the South Carolina state capitol in a couple of weeks. My guess is the governor or whomever will try and stop them.
We'll hear the same tired lame excuses used to try and prevent it. We'll hear that they are a hate group which is true. However, hate groups have rights, too.
The next step will be that they will refuse them because they are afraid of rioting. That's another BS argument. The nation can survive an occasional riot but it can NOT survive having rights taken away.
Of course, there is a way to prevent the rally. All South Carolina has to do is to tell the Klan that they are responsible for cleaning up after themselves afterwards.
They're going to be responsible for making one hell of a mess and they should be responsible to clean up after themselves.
I would imagine that produce vendors are now leaving all sorts of vegetables out in the sun to get really ripe in anticipation of the rally. That's what I'd do.
Rotten vegetables command a premium price the day before a Klan rally. If you're sharp you can contribute to the failure of the rally and make a few bucks while you're at it.
Ben Franklin said that those that give up their liberty for a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. He was right.
As for Big Brother that wants to take the right to privacy from the Klan? Go piss up a rope.
Those jerks have the same rights the rest of us do. Taking theirs away is paving the highway for getting our rights taken away.
