Color Me Green With Envy

One of my favorite things is to conduct little thought experiments, make little proposals that make my point for me. I’m not alone in that way, but it’s rare that I have to confess when someone does it far, far better than me. (Mainly because I can just ignore it or pretend it never happened.)

 

Well, someone’s done me one better — and this time, it’s really, really, really good. Over at Legal Insurrection, they are wondering what would happen if the “#Occupy” thug’s tactics were to be adopted by a less liberal cause — such as, say, the pro-life crowd. In other words, “#Occupy Planned Parenthood.”

 

Even someone who’s marginally pro-choice can appreciate the hell out of that idea, and the thought of all those liberal heads exploding at the pro-choicers doing “mic checks” and “finger twinkles” at abortion clinics just fills me with a most delightful glee.

    Hmph!  There would be riot police in the streets faster than you can say, “SACRED CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT!” and the libs would be demanding that the police use live ammo.

  • We’ve already seen what happens. RICO statutes were applied to abortion protesters. The left can’t even tolerate a movement as laid-back as the Tea Party.

    Patricia Ireland, president of NOW, said: “A jury of six men and women saw through the thugs’ shameless attempt to pervert the First Amendment.”

    Rich, huh?

      Liberal First Amendment:

      The right of the people to agree with us shall not be infringed.

      • “The right of the people to agree with us shall not be infringed.  The rest of you, you’re on your own.”

        There, I fixed it.

          You’re right.  Thanks.

        Leftist understanding of law and the constitution:

        Civil rights apply to the left

        Laws apply to everyone else.

  • *pro-lifers doing “mic checks” and “finger twinkles”

    I would pay good money to see that. In fact, I’d participate, at least in the daytime.

    • I’ve been giving the left my own version of “up twinkles” for years.

      With typical conservative efficiency – it only takes me one finger.

    The Liberals’ answer “but but that’s different”.

      Yeah, “nuance” is everything.

    And the drums. Bang the drums at all hours of the day and night.

    The left already get up in arms when people have candle lit vigils outside abortion clinics… I can only imagine what they would say if they got the #Occupy treatment
