I write this not to have some fun with words, and see how creative I can be. I do it to at least try to make some formative point hopefully anchored to national traditions and values. It gets hard sometimes — words being what they are.
But what frustrates me is that in doing so, it cannot come up to the level of this current reality. Maybe in some ironic way one can only do that through fiction because the truth is too scary to even imagine. Truth and reality go beyond what can be accepted, easily.
A weird thing happened when Trey Gowdy delivered his weekly monologue once again talking about prosecution and Lady Justice wearing her proverbial blindfold. Trey being the great proponent for prosecution(sigh), his grievance list did not even include Benghazi. No, newsflash: ‘Lady-J’ is now woke and she is not wearing any blindfold. She sorely resents the day she ever did. That’s what we have here: outright rebellion against American concepts, certainly justice.
Lady-J is swinging loose and doesn’t mind showing you who she endorses, or whom she doesn’t. She has predispositions now and doesn’t mind you knowing it. She’s a postmodern form of whatever. It is all only relevant to wishes and desires — not yours particularly but of some woke mob who gets to decide what justice is, or is not. And she’s pretty much told us, through parlayed actions of the left, that she is not moored to any traditional justice you learned was fair and just. She has “moved on!”
She has busted a move and she’s not looking back.
All this recoil and flailing about on news networks of the left, or among leftist minions, is only their way of telling us that’s the way it is. Mother’s little helpers they are, telling us “there is a new mother nature taking over”, and it is them.  It’s woke and sure not blind.
Never mind if any others might attempt to take control because the freaks of injustice have a pretty possessive hold on it all. Dare you to try.
Who knew justice would be a fatal shot of a full frontal assault on the US? Something we so long took for granted, not for the outcome it always delivered but for the aspirational virtue we held in it. Crush that and you crush the hopes and dreams of the people. If you have nothing to defend you, then what is all the struggling about? Why not just succumb to tyranny? Might as well. That’s probably the plan anyway.
The whole country was founded on aspirational freedom and justice that, while not perfect, was as securely held as anything in the world. It was not guaranteed to always deliver the correct outcome, but the process itself had checks and guards to keep it fair. You might have to make Lady Justice work a bit, but the hope was to make it work.
Talk to an attorney sometime and a value will surface. They claim that they can at least make the system work. Maybe they cannot guarantee outcome but they can make the process do its diligence. Exhaust the options. Now that is even out the window.
We hear talk of amendments or bill of rights only to eventually realize there is no guarantee anymore. If nothing stands in the way of tyrants — be they party apparatchiks or court officials — trampling on your sacred God-given rights, then for their purposes you have none. They don’t care if they are violating a higher authority. They are the only ensconced power as far as they are concerned. And they have no one to answer to for it, which is even worse. It can all go as far or fast as they want to roll this thing.
To hear the Left use terms like social justice, I often think to myself: just what is it they mean by that term? Is it some social contract they think is a force around the world? Is it a form of voodoo or mysticism? Why do they want to substitute that, whatever it is, for justice based on rule of law? Don’t they believe in the rule of law anymore?
The sad answer is no. But if we don’t have a hope of justice, we are in deep doo-doo. They’ve shown us, in reality, what it means not to have real justice. The message could not be louder. The rabid Left’s response to any complaints is “get used to it.”
But it also doesn’t much care if you like it or not. Lady-J ain’t blind anymore and she is just as radical as Leftists are, or want to be. And stop calling her a she!
