To be sheep.
I have been watching the leftosphere’s reaction to the “martialization” of Boston and its surrounding burbs. As you would suspect it is not at all surprising.
The lack of concern for their own civil rights, just so that they can “feel” safe, and “feel” civilized, and “feel” protected should frightening to any thinking person. That they cannot even come up with an objection to what happened is proof enough that they care more about “feelings” than about reality.
While this fellow is not one of the widely read leftosphere blogs, his post encapsulates damn near everything I have read from last week and over the weekend.
Hey, Second Amendment lunatics. Think about this:
The entire city of Boston was under martial law the last few days. You get that, right? MARTIAL LAW.
In a cameras-everywhere society, we went from tragedy to identification to capture in less than five days. And to make that happen, the full-force of the government came in, shut down a major metropolitan area, instituted a no-fly zone, flooded the place with troops and technology and locked it down until it completed it’s mission..
Think about that, screaming gun lunatic with more weapons than friends, the next time you think your 100 clip magazine and fourteen guns can protect you from a determined military. Your “Red Dawn” fantasy is laughable.
You, on the other hand, got a big lesson on just how sad and defenseless you would be if Obama – or ANY President – truly was the dictator you fear.
You wouldn’t last two days.
Enjoy your weekend, oh impotent paper tigers.

I have edited out some of his more fallacious accusations to comply with fair use, but the whole piece is available at the link.
Some folks just don’t understand that if you give the government the power to abuse you, they won’t be able to resist actually doing it (and telling you it is for your own good). Some folks will actually applaud said abuses, because they voted for the abuser.
