If you’ve spent any amount of time on Twitter, chances are you’ve come across at least one video of Antifa protesters doing something horrible to someone who couldn’t defend themselves.
I’ve seen protesters standing in the way of an elderly woman with a walker who was trying to cross the street, an elderly woman with paint thrown on her, a woman with a walker who was pushed over, and even a small child kicked by a teenage kid.
If you’re like me, you were overcome with a need for justice, and you wish you were there to make things right and protect those who couldn’t protect themselves.
As I watch the complete breakdown of law and order in some of these cities across the country, I can’t help but think it’s time for these people to get what they have coming to them.
I confess I would not feel a shred of sympathy if I heard one of these protesters who are actively destroying cities, blinding police officers or other innocent people with lasers pointed at their eyes, or just vandalizing property, ended up shot.
People in civilized countries like ours expect law and order to be maintained: first by virtue of a moral citizenry, but enforced by police officers in those rare instances when people can’t be trusted to do it themselves.
If people hit the streets and actively give up their rights by causing mayhem, they have to expect to get what they have coming to them. Unfortunately, there appears to be way too little of that.
Enter Scott Adams. Immediately after watching one such video that made me feel sick and angry, Scott Adams had the perfect suggestion:
This tweet captures everything. As a white person, I would not feel any animosity toward any police officer who intentionally or unintentionally ends the life of any protester intending to harm or kill another person – no matter what their vocation.
They took the risk when they attempted to inflict harm on others, and I have no sympathy for anyone intending to harm another who, in turn, experiences any horrific results themselves.
As Scott Adams says, I promise not to protest.
