Freedom of Protest

In a country of 325 million people there are apparently so many people out there who don’t understand a basic fact. So here it is in a nutshell.

The first amendment does not grant anyone a right to destroy property.

One is a right and the other is a crime. Some conflate the two as one right. Freedom of speech and assembly does not equate to destroying property.

Many people rush to compare political sides to defend these protestors.

One big difference here between the right and left, though largely symbolic, is that a protest on the right is not followed by riots and looting. Usually they don’t leave mountains of garbage behind when it is over either.

On the left, those extra curricular rights seem to be generously included anymore.

Like most rights, they have an implied responsibility to the user. The protestors should be capable of having some self-control within their ranks. How come the right is expected to do that but the left is not?

Oh, instead they make up things about people being righteously angry and that violence is almost justified because of what they have experienced. And we’re supposed to accept that as just the way it is, unfortunately. The left turns protests into mere opportunities to lash out at the community or public where they hold them.

But then, like putting the icing on a cake, the media gives us a steady diet about “peaceful protests” – or mostly peaceful. But don’t keep count of the losers, those are the breaks..

Wouldn’t you think because people on the left have so many protests, at the drop of a hat, that they would be skilled at the process by now? Maybe they would know what is and what is not included under the rubric of protest. But no, things like burning police cars, looting and burning down buildings are just perks of a meaningful protest to them.
