According to the left, a six-year-old has sufficient wisdom, maturity, and insight to decide for xerself that xe is not the “gender” that corresponds to xer biological and genetic make-up and all adults are therefore obligated to accommodate the six-year-old’s chosen gender.
But when three eighteen-year-olds and a twenty-four year old kidnap a mentally challenged man and torture him for their own amusement, livestreaming the video, those same leftists are like, “Hey, you know, they’re just kids, and kids just act stupidly sometimes because they’re immature and don’t understand the consequences.”
Likewise, you have people on the left saying that when four black people torture a white guy while yelling “F— White People, F— Donald Trump,” it isn’t really a “hate crime.” (I really don’t believe in the whole hate crimes thing, but the left does, so let’s work with that.) You know, because the details are kind of fuzzy. “We can’t really be sure what motivated them,” the lefties say. “Besides, they had a relationship before the attack, it wasn’t a random thing.”
But when a gay dude gets pistol whipped by his drug dealer and tied to a fencepost… oh, yeah, that’s totally a hate crime. No doubt. Nothing but anti-gay hate could possibly explain that.
And you know something, I can kind of see that what those four demonic sub-humans did in Chicago may not have been a “hate crime” in the sense of “an act of violence committed out of hatred for another person’s race, creed, or sexual orientation.” There was hate in it, and there was hate expressed during it, but there were other things going on… including immature, stupid people just being violent for violence sake.
And this is why I’m just not down with the entire concept of hate crimes. That poor dude they tortured… his injuries are the same whether they did it because they hated him for being white, or because they are stupid violent people behaving like stupid violent people. (I won’t call them animals, they don’t deserve the dignity.) And they should be severely punished for their actions not their motivations.
Because, let’s face it, labeling some crimes as worse because “they are hate crimes” is pretty much just virtue signaling.
Still wonder which media outlet is going to be first out of the block explaining that the four people who tortured that white guy were “basically good kids, and they were just starting to turn their lives around. Their families are still in shock. ‘It’s just not like her,'” some relative will say.
Sorry for the meandering. I know that bothers some people.
