The threats Joe’s been getting, along with much of the language coming out of the Progressives over many years, makes this look a little different to me lately.
Officer ‘Roid Rage didn’t come up with his attitude in a vacuum. It was given to him. He was molded, shaped and prepped for it. He was playing a role laid out for him in advance. An unwitting foot soldier in the war on American principles, a cell of one, he was merely expressing the feelings of millions of people, including, no doubt, many of his superiors.
When I first saw that video, I suppose I believed, without really thinking about it, that anyone who saw it would be disgusted with Officer ‘Roid Rage and want him out of law enforcement for the rest of his life, but now I know better. There are plenty of Americans, including most of those in the White House, who would see that vid and think; “Yes! That’s how it’s done! Right on! We need more of this, please.” In other words; it’s obvious that some people see government (and law enforcement) as an outlet for their anger. They typically won’t come right out and support such things openly of course. At least not most of the time– not in public. Most haters are chameleons.
This seems obvious to me now. It’s just that I haven’t thought of it quite like that until recently. If you have, well, I’m just now catching up to you. Carry on.
