Leftists, Not Trump, Reminiscent Of The Klan Menace
Floundering comedian Stephen Colbert compared Donald Trump to the Ku Klux Klan.
But technically, isn't it the American political left that has more in common with the terrorizing nightriders of yore?
For example, like the Klan, political leftists (not Donald Trump) are the ones threatening violence and perpetrating acts of such when opinion is vocalized with which these hoodlums disagree.
Anyone insisting otherwise need only be reminded of the vandalizing rampages that have erupted in a number of American cities over the course of the past year or so.
Furthermore, in an age that claims to value tolerance and diversity, how is it less of an outrage for victims of the Knockout Game to be rendered unconscious for simply being White in an overwhelming percentage of these assaults than it was for outrageous acts of violence to be perpetrated upon innocent victims in an era that might not have taken such infringements of basic human dignities as seriously as it should have?
Like the Klan, Colbert and his political allies are the ones demanding that duly established law be suspended for the purposes of providing a preferred demographic with an advantage over another.
All that Donald Trump is pretty much calling for is an enforcement of U.S. immigration law as it is already on the books?
What can be more American that equal treatment under the law?
For if Kim Davis can be imprisoned because of the imperative of elected officials upholding even those laws that they do not believe in, why isn't a similar punishment imposed upon those as willfully neglecting this other area of law and public policy?
