Did you see this video the other day, of absolutely mad Democrat activists in Washington, D.C. literally clawing at the doors of the Supreme Court of the United States like wild animals?
They were like babies having a tantrum pounding on doors that weigh 13 tons, containing images of justice going back all the way to the Magna Carta; and before that to Roman times; and before that even to Greek mythology.
The master craftsmen who sculpted those doors said it was the most important thing they worked on in their entire lives, but, I’m guessing that mad mob didn’t care.
Actually, it was fitting that they would attack the Supreme Court building itself — because they don’t really believe in the rule of law, or law and order.
They can hate the Republican Party, and believe the slanders against the new Supreme Court justice, Brett Kavanaugh, but they can’t dispute that it was a lawful process that put him in that seat.
Just like the leftist street teams in Ontario that had a tantrum at the provincial legislature, when Premier Doug Ford was using section 33 of the Charter of Rights to override a rogue court ruling.
And yet, these protesters — in America, and increasingly in Canada — have broken away from that social contract, by which we all agree to live by the rules.
They seek to rule the levers of power — the court, the legislature, and they’ll take those powers if they can win them in a democratic election, but if they can’t?
Well, they’ll just refuse to abide by those same institutions when they they are wielded by their ideological opponents.
And the lawlessness and violence is spreading.
More and more we see scenes like those I’ll show you from achingly “woke” Portland, Oregon, where it’s about screaming at other people, and showing that you love some things, by showing how much you hate, other things.
Have you seen these scenes of lawlessness, disorder, and threats of violence on the CBC? No, of course not.
This same extremism is coming to Canada too, this same violence, and regrettably, the politicization of police.
We forget how hard it was to build up the rule of law, a culture of mutual respect and politeness; a custom of self-control; a police department with a light touch, because we all behaved ourselves on our own.
But what took centuries to build, can be destroyed in years.
