Bob Enyart mentions the current conservative lament that the left is trying to criminalize opposition, and how right they are. Conservatives are wrong however, and this is systematic with our side, when they try to reduce matters of right and wrong into process issues. For example, when gun control tyrants activate after a mass shooting, conservatives will make a process objection and claim (wrongly) that "It's wrong to use a crisis to promote whatever your issue is." If you've spent years trying to convince nations to build a tsunami warning system, and then in 2004 the Indian Ocean tsunami killed 200,000 people, there's absolutely nothing wrong with immediately going into high gear to accomplish your goal. So the primary factor in whether it's right or wrong to use a crisis to promote a cause, is whether the cause is just or unjust. Likewise, just because the left today is trying to criminalize political opposition, doesn't mean opposition should always be legal. Bob gives examples on today's program of when political opposition is, or should be, criminal. Finally, we've reached $14,750 of our $50,000 goal!
