Gov. Beshear’s outrage seems selective
In late May, a group of people had a rally at the state capitol to protest an injustice mandated by, what many people consider, tyrannical Kentucky governor Andy Beshear. These “executive orders” put many people out of work while getting little or no help from a broken unemployment system. While Beshear outlawed Christians attending church and elective surgery, the abortion slaughterhouse is going full bore. I guess Beshear doesn’t understand the term elective surgery. Could it be because Planned Parenthood is a big-time political donor to Beshear and Democrats?
At this peaceful rally, there was no violence. No one was hurt, no one shot and no looting. There was an effigy hung of Beshear at the rally with the words “Sic Semper Tyrannis,” which is Latin for “Thus always to Tyrants” first uttered at Julius Caesar’s assassination.
Hanging political figures in effigy is as American as America. One of the first politicians hung in effigy in America was of King George III in the 1770s by John and Samuel Adams and other patriots. Hanging political figures in effigy has nothing to do with race or racist in nature. Later, Beshear had his little pity party, whining like a whipped pup, demonizing these people and blaming a “radical militia group” when in reality these were just everyday people wanting to go to work and go about their business.
Now fast forward a couple of weeks. People are protesting what they consider an injustice. Do we see nonviolence? No, we see people shot, police officers shot at, leaf blowers blowing bleach on the police, widespread looting, rocks and bricks thrown at the police and many more violent acts. Where is Beshear’s little pity party now?
After the patriot protest, Beshear made the comment that nonviolent protesters brought “fear and terror.” What does Beshear call this? I haven’t heard the words “fear and terror” from him concerning these thugs but I see a lot of people fearful.
Beshear and the Democrats can take solace, though, in knowing that most of these people committing these crimes will vote Democrat.
