Never Side With The Enemy

By Peter R. Quinones

I’m ashamed to say that I didn’t see the Left as my greatest enemy until COVID started. Sure, I knew certain factions were dangerous but not for the reasons I do now. 2020 made it very clear to me that there are people on the Left that want me dead. I’m disappointed that it took me so long to figure that out but at least I finally did.

A phrase that is often parroted as a signifier of our great “democracy” is “I disapprove of what you say, but will defend to the death your right to say it.” NO! If the words coming out of that hole in your face are a direct attack on me or my loved ones, I’m not defending your right to say it. I will do whatever it takes to stop you.

I Tweeted this and mean every word:

People in our society have long been sold on the concept of defending to the point of death an enemy who wants to suppress their rights. Consider the insanity of this. A friend on Twitter put it this way: “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to silence me.” When I see people advocating that their enemies are afforded the same rights that they and their friends deserve, I know this isn’t a serious person and certainly not one I want to ally with.
