Why is it that you were locked in your home, unable to leave except perhaps to buy groceries, while judges like Biden’s Supreme Court nominee did their best to let criminals out of jail? Why is it that BLM and Antifa rioters could roam free, burning and looting seemingly at will, but you had to close your business and stay home. Why is it that a rioter was more or less let off the hook for burning down a building with a man inside it but Kyle Rittenhouse was put through the wringer for daring to defend himself from the mob of rioters chasing him and attacking him?
The answer is anarcho-tyranny, the idea that those in power will let those on their side get away with almost anything while those on the other side are put through the Spanish Inquisition for the slightest possible infraction. As the excellent website im1776 describes the term:
The term ‘anarcho-tyranny’ was coined in the 1990s by Samuel Francis, who argued it reconciled civil disorder with oppressive government. As he wrote, anarcho-tyranny is “the combination of oppressive government power against the innocent and the law-abiding and, simultaneously, a grotesque paralysis of the ability or the will to use that power to carry out basic public duties such as protection or public safety.”
That idea, that nature of leftist government is why so much injustice has been seen recently; the left isn’t focused on the equal administration of justice. No, it’s all about supporting its side and doing its best to grind conservatives beneath its heel.
Hence why America increasingly looks like some far-left version of Weimar Germany, where the government lets off those that are rioting for favorable reasons (think all the Antifa and BLM rioters that weren’t punished for all the devastation that they wrought) while pursuing those who dare to oppose it with a vengeance (all the January 6th “insurrectionists” who have been locked up in solitary confinement and treated terribly for daring to wander around the People’s House).
You’re not allowed to defend yourself, or at least wouldn’t be if the left had its way (just look at how Rittenhouse was treated), no matter what your assailants are doing, but rioters are able to get away with injuring cops, burning down businesses, and wreaking havoc across city block after city block.
Why? Because of anarcho-tyranny and the left’s view of politics. Antifa and BLM are on the side of the left, the message of systemic racism, like all those other lies pushed by the BLM crowd, is beneficial to the left, so it doesn’t want to prosecute those pushing it no matter what they do. But a patriot using a firearm to defend himself from a roving band of thugs? Now that teaches the value of self-reliance and shows why firearm ownership is important. So it must be punished and persecuted regardless of what justice would require; the left wants to quash those messages and will do whatever it can to do so.
Stand up to anarcho-tyranny. Stand up for your rights.
