Villain … or Victim?

 

Canceled – the collateral damage of the Lies of the Left

The Lies of the Left are killing America, and its sons and daughters … like MN police officer Kim Potter, pictured above.

Our daughters can do anything that they want to. And previous generations of women were explicitly excluded from the opportunity to do so, by a culture that was dominated by men. That environment does not exist anymore and the experiments of the Left are killing and crushing our daughters as they seek to do things on a police force or in a military situation that their wiring and temperament is not uniquely designed for – and men used to honor that feminine mystique enough to not put them in harm’s way like is done in the Woke World.

Women are very different from men. That is not meant to be degrading. Women can do many things that were traditionally male roles as good or better than men. That does not mean that we are just the same. The Left pushed this issue so far, they lied to young women (our daughters) that put them in front of and behind guns. This is not their nature and it goes against the hearts that they have as women designed by God.

Compare and contrast the Left’s treatment of Officer Kim Potter with their treatment of a young girl who was coerced into killing her baby in her womb. Or the working Mom (or Dad) who was so stressed out that they left their little baby in a hot car because they were rushing to work. Accidents happen and this is what happened to Officer Potter.

Big Lie #1 – Men and Women are identical (and you can interchange between the two on a whim; however, for purposes of the grievance industry, power and money, the segregation and differentiation of men and women, and different races as well, must always be maintained)

Big Lie #2  – Biology does not matter. Your feelings are supreme. You are your own God. You can imagine yourself to be a woman (even if you are biologically male) or to be Black (even if you are biologically white). Such biology is toxic masculinity imposed upon an innocent world by an oppressive paternalistic world order (but don’t call it God).

Vanity of vanities. All is vanity.

    Critical Theory subversion has established an equivalence between equality before the law and citizen sovereignty to an array of solipsistic delusions. A right has been fabricated to demand counterfactual acceptance of someones viewpoint or suffer retribution for the “damage” to that person’s dignity, for disrespecting that person’s “reality”. This is a demand for the baldfaced idolatrous worship of the person. The more outrageous and injurious to reality the delusion, the louder the demand for submission. 

    When delusion is codified into law, “blasphemy” against delusions like Bruce Jenner’s become punishable by law. State required idolatry. Who does such a weakened, disordered state benefit?

    They want equality of results. Merely Equality of opportunity is boring and unfair to their warped worldview. And they actually oppose the powerful words of Martin Luther King, Jr. in his  magnificent “I have a Dream” speech:

    The LEFT chooses to ignore and excuse “content of character” and continues to impose “color of skin” as what matters. Racists!

    I laughed at the guy. First, he waits for over a minute (he has been trained and shamed about his ‘toxic masculinity’ and ‘whiteness’ so he couldn’t act too quickly) and then he exhibits no concern about her ability to make the cannon go off and walks in front of, rather than behind the weapon before he disgustedly does “the job no one else can (or wants?) do”.

    I don’t understand why this is an example that supports your proposition.  There are tons of male police officers who have made deadly mistakes.

    I agree with the premise that broadly speaking, men and women are different.  But we are all individuals.  It’s reality that most truck drivers are men, and that very few women want such an occupation.  Does that mean that women should be discouraged from driving truck if that is the natural inclination of some of them?  I think the left is wrong that unless we have equal numbers of men and women in every occupation, that is proof of unfairness.  I hope it’s not the position of the mainstream right that men and women are so different from each other (and so similar within our sex group) that we ought to have jobs reserved exclusively for one sex or the other.

    I thought most conservatives were pleased that an ever-increasing number of women are taking an interest in firearms for self-protection or recreation.  Should we be discouraging them?

    I think @Columbo is trying to point out that women, who are generally weaker than men, have been told that they can handle other, bigger people (generally men) the same as men. Unfortunately women in law enforcement resort to a weapon faster than men because they are generally smaller and weaker. Most women should not be in the military or law enforcement or firefighting, etc. It puts them and others at risk. Just one woman’s opinion.

    Caused me to suspect this was a gag, a bit. It did not take so much strength to pull the lanyard that she could not have done so throwing a bit of weight into it. Now, if the scene was her staggering trying to pick up and load a 155 mm round, that would be quite another thing.

    Yeah, that’s part of it too.  When my youngest brother was driving big trucks for the Army National Guard, one of the requirements was supposed to be that two people could lift one of the truck/trailer wheels/tires for replacement if needed.  Two women didn’t stand a chance at that, but they were let in anyway.

    I agree the cannon video looks like a set-up. He is wearing gloves, she is not.  She doesn’t seem to me to put any real umph into that jerking motion.

    But, but, but, ….we are required by LAW  to go along with the utter delusion that women (or anyone who claims that they are a woman) can do ALL the same things men can do. You sexist!  Those TV women cops prove that a woman can chase down a bad guy, throw him up against a wall and slap those cuffs on! Right?

    However,  because of the undeniable (science!) strength difference, women need to use a weapon more often than men, and we all know what that leads to.

    I am sorry for that woman police officer.  And the guy resisted.  Furthermore, even men have to rely on tasers at times. How she made that mistake I cannot fathom.

     

    There’s no going back to common sense, once it is abandoned.  We are stuck with idiocy now, and all that comes with it.

    I once knew a seven year veteran who had never met more than light resistance and had never needed to draw his weapon. And nobody knows what they will do when force is required until they confront the actuality. This prosecution is an excellent occasion to challenge the place of women in front line law enforcement and military roles.

    I wonder why some people hold a caricature of conservatives as Archie Bunker in their heads?  A white male cop kneels on the neck of a black suspect for eight minutes — until he’s dead —  while three other cops are helping to hold him down and the consensus is that it’s all the suspect’s fault.  A Somali immigrant cop shoots dead the white woman who called the police, and who was no threat whatsoever, and the problem is allowing Somali immigrants into the police force.  A white female officer makes a deadly mistake, killing a black suspect, and the problem is women being allowed into male occupations.  

    So we’ve go the left saying that policing in general is bad, and that white cops in particular are trigger-happy racists who take pleasure in killing non-white suspects.  And we’ve got the right suggesting that cops who are not white males probably shouldn’t be allowed on the force.  I’m saying we ought to judge people as individuals, and I’m apparently all alone in that position.

    I do sort of resent the line about the ‘right’ only wanting white, male police. I don’t think any Ricochetti are making that argument. I do agree that we should judge  people individually – something that’s not occurring for either the police or the individuals they encounter. We, as a society, do have to make some judgments about groups:  physical differences between sexes or that generally a child raised in a home by a father and mother, etc.

    My range marshal would agree, and agree with you. I think the Lt. might have been more nuanced rather than use that example but I agree with his main principles.

    There are plenty of women who could have easily fired the cannon, especially given proper technique, which she did not demonstrate. Oh, and my range marshal would have been all up in that guys grill for walking in front of the barrel.
