In a radical rethinking of their interpretation of the Constitution, liberals have determined that the First Amendment was written when people communicated by voice or through the marvel of moveable type, period: new media weren’t contemplated and thus are not included in the protection afforded by that Amendment. Greenwich Democrat’s Designated Intellectual, Dollar Bill, tells us why:
“Like the rest of our prescriptions for society,” he explained, “our policies were ill thought out and, frankly, just plain wrong. The Newtown massacre forced us to realize that: rights bestowed on us by a beneficent government are limited to the technology existing at the time they were granted: citizens are thus permitted muskets and bows and arrows, period. And having discovered that limitation, it was of course blindingly obvious that the same interpretation must be applied to the rest of our supposed rights. As the result, we Democrats have immediately cancelled all television advertising and will restrict ourselves to handbills and indignant letters to the editor in future elections.”
Encouraged by his self-criticism, we read Dollar Bill these further comments from Dr. Milton Wolf and asked if he agreed:
Law-abiding, free people should have the right to arm themselves with whatever weapons their government would use against them.If the world is sufficiently dangerous that the police require semi-automatic rifles with large-capacity magazines, then do not the free citizens who are sovereign over the police and who also live in the same dangerous world deserve to similarly protect themselves from it? In fact, are not the citizens — not the police — always the first ones who are forced to face those dangers?
Bill was unswayed, his reeducation still incomplete: “the point of a massively armed police force is to control the populace,” he insisted. “Do we want anarchy in our streets? Resistance to lawful orders from authority? I think not – the majority rules, under our progressive theory of government, and the majority want to be ruled. You old farts are past your expiration date. Get with it or get run over; your choice.”
