Canada passed Bill C-16 recently, making it illegal to use the “wrong” gender pronouns. God forbid you assume someone is, say, Antegender (“a protean gender which has the potential to be anything, but is formless and motionless, and therefore, does not manifest as a particular gender), when they, in fact, are Anongender (“a gender that is unknown to both yourself and others”)! Off to re-education camp you go, you ignorant, heartless, bigot! And let’s not even think about what would happen to you if you called someone with all male parts a “man,” or someone with all female parts a “woman,” if they didn’t choose to identify as such at the time.
Newspaper headlines would read: “Canada Brings Back the Death Penalty.”
Try to reconcile this development with the fact that New Jersey Democratic political strategist James Devine has introduced the hashtags #HuntRepublicans and #HuntRepublicanCongressmen to his tweets, and no one appears particularly upset. He added the hashtags to his tweets after Republicans were targeted in the Alexandria shootings. Five people were shot, two are in critical condition, his tweets stand…and he is not apologetic, telling WKXW: “It is insensitive, and I don’t care. You want me to be politically correct? I don’t have time for that anymore. I’m not apologizing if it offended snowflake Republicans.”
He added, “We are in a war with selfish, foolish & narcissistic rich people. Why is it a shock when things turn violent?” He also said that a case could be made- using Republican’s right to bear arms philosophy- that the shooter was simply “availing himself of his Second Amendment remedies.”
First off, Devine is obviously a misogynist. #HuntRepublicanCongressmen? I hope he travels to Canada. They wouldn’t put up with such blatant sexism. As for being politically incorrect, that refers to someone, say, not using preferred gender pronouns, not to someone urging the killing of a large group of people because they don’t agree with them. That is mass murder. And labeling Republicans “snowflakes” in this instance is patently absurd. Unlike spoiled, intolerant, liberal brats on college campuses who hear words they don’t like, they didn’t go running for warm milk and cookies. They called for unity. After being shot at.
The Second Amendment codifies the people’s natural right to protect themselves from deranged assassins like Mr. Devine, it doesn’t give anyone the right to attack others for their political beliefs. We have the right to bear arms, not commit murder. It’s called the Rule of Law, which Mr. Devine wouldn’t understand, much as the terms democratic republic and Natural Law would mystify and anger him.
So, to recap, we can no longer legally call people what they are, but we can aid and abet the killing of people for who they are.
Provided they’re Republicans, of course.
There is no way to make peace with people consumed by victimology, covetousness and entitlement, and driven by infantile emotion devoid of reason, logic or judgement.
