Lots of people are asking that question. Here’s the answer.
A few days ago I got involved in the entire Oscars controversy because it was top of mind all across America. On a lengthy thread of comments I weighed in…by merely quoting a conservative columnist who offered an opinion. Here’s what I posted:
HERE’S A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE
This isn’t exactly shocking. The left excused rioting, looting, arson, and violence against police during the summer of 2020. The left is violent. The left had weaponized that to achieve their aims. They tolerated an armed left-wing militia to take over a large swath of Seattle. The reaction to the Will Smith slap attack is not new. It does, however, pave the way for us to use violence for good.
If you see someone burning an American flag, punch that person. If you see looting or any felonious activity, use violence to stop it. Run these people over with your cars if necessary. It’s for a good cause, right? Law and order are good causes.
If the left can assault people in the name of alopecia, we can do the same for law and order. That sounds like a fair compromise.
