Daniel Henninger of the Wall Street Journal sums up these micro-totalitarians, perfect examples of the Progressive philosophy: “The essence of modern Democratic Progressivism is: You will participate in what we have created for you, and you will comply with the law’s demands.” One used to believe that before pen was set to legislative paper, our elected officials WOULD contemplate “is this Constitutional”?
Joshua Koskoff in presenting a “novel” defense: guns are bad because:
“The public had demonstrated tragically that it was not capable of handling the chattel properly,” Koskoff said in court Monday, using the legal term for property. The public, as a class, is “notoriously incompetent,”
Koskoff is the scum sucking lawyer in the Sandy Hook lawsuit that is trying to end run the immunity law that shields gun manufacturers against these Leftist anti-gunners from suing all kinds of ways to put them out of business – don’t punish the actual shooter doing the crime but sue to further the civilian disarmament movement achieve big money awards.
But I don’t think I’ve ever heard a lawyer saying that we all are total incompetents when handling any kind of weapon, thus the manufacturers should. But then again, that’s what all Progressives think of us all – nincompoops. Nice to now.
Kings used to unilaterally declare who has what. Queens used to unilaterally declare who owns what. Royalty – pure power. Hillary is not progressive – this mentality that SHE owns the right to take away other peoples’ property and Rights heads backwards, regressively, to a very crude, rude, rough, and brutish time. THAT is the Utopia they are trying to recreate.
And here is how some elected Progressives view Government, to create what they will force you to comply with, plus some unelected and unaccountable Progressives (re: Bureaucrats) that share the same outlook. That they matter and you just get in their way of remaking society in their own image:
- NH State Rep Kris Roberts (D): “Government has to protect us from our own stupidity.”
- NH State Rep Leigh Webb (D): “The role of government is to legislate behavior“
- NH State Rep Laura Pantelakos (D): “I don’t care about protecting peoples’ Liberty“
Read the rest by Skip Murphy Co-founder of GraniteGrok. He’s compiled an impressively massive list of quotes from our elected officials. If this doesn’t frighten you, I’m not sure what will wake you up. While you’re there, check to see if any of your representatives are on the list. Brace yourself…
