Good piece at Reason, but I think it asks the wrong question.

The question isn’t whether gun owners have any rights which liberal are bound to respect. The question is whether anyone other than liberals has any rights which liberals are bound to respect?

And briefly, surveying the evidence available today, the answer is no.

Liberals as a group, or progressives if you like, don’t feel duty-bound or honor-bound to respect the rights of anyone outside their group.

Not gun owners, who progs regularly demonize and call names.

Not Christians, who find ourselves under assault via the Obamacare mandate and now the Hobby Lobby hysteria.

Not pro-lifers.

Not teenage girls who hunt.

Not the eeeevil Koch brothers.

Not whole states that don’t want to be subjected to hard left social and economic policy.

Not black Republicans.

No one.

Say anything that today’s progs don’t like and they’ll unfriend you, smear you, attack you, even directly assault you.

The one thing that they’re least likely to do is listen to you or defend your right to disagree with them.

Do gun owners have any rights which liberals are bound to respect?

Well, ask this question: Do Spartan sword owners have any right which Persians are bound to respect?

And as you ponder your answer ask this question: Is there any thing for which we owe liberals any respect?

"Liberals as a group, or progressives if you like, don’t feel duty-bound or honor-bound to respect...."

....anything or any one.


And that is because they don't understand the concepts of duty and honor, and they refuse any idea of being bound in any way, at any time, for any reason, by any authority.



They are spoiled children, on their good days.

The title of the article is an allusion to Chief Justice Taney's decision in Dred Scott v. Sanford, in which he wrote "... that they [Negroes] had no rights which the white man was bound to respect..."

Part of the most shameful sentence in the Supreme Court's worst decision.

You really need to quit drinking the Northern Kool-Aid and learn something about the Civil War.

It's not quite the Black Hat and White Hat conflict you were programmed to believe it is.
