No one has the right to behave like this. There is no place for this crap in a civilized country. If you’re going to pull this kind of shit you should expect that the people whose lives you are disrupting will get angry and will do things like grab your sign and throw it over a fence. (That dude is my hero.) They might even grab you and throw you over a fence. Or some delayed commuters might pummel you for a while until the cops get there and drag you away from the flash mob of clog dancers using your body as a dance floor.
When you Leftists chant “Whose streets? Our streets!” you are giving the wrong answer. Those are not YOUR streets. Like Obama said, “You didn’t build that.” They aren’t mine either. The streets are OUR streets, meaning yours, mine, and everyone else’s combined. But those streets were not always there. And they did not materialize by magic.
A lot of people in earlier generations built the streets and roads in this country. And a helluva lot more of them worked hard and paid taxes to pay for them. But we all have an equal right to use the streets. That means you have to SHARE them with us. I assume you Leftists are familiar with the concept of sharing. After all, isn’t sharing the essence of socialism? One guy makes money and 10 other people share it with him.
Don’t even start with calling this some kind of free speech issue. Your freedom of speech does not include the right to block roads whenever you feel like it. Nor does your freedom of speech impose any kind of an obligation on the rest of us to listen to the silly crap emanating from your pieholes.
Last but not least, you do not have the right to shut down or shout down someone else’s free speech. For civilized Democratic systems to work we must all respect and defend each other’s rights.
You Leftists have been sowing the wind for many years. You got away with it because there was a built-up reserve of patience and goodwill. Now pay attention to what I say next: People are sick of your shit and they are not going to take it anymore. I’m not threatening anybody, and I have no intention of being involved with violence. But if you think that Trump supporters would sit on their hands and do nothing while Congress tries to undo the 2016 election, you got another think coming.
