I appreciate benevolence, but I am coming to the conclusion that there is a side of some Objectivists that simply likes thugs. It has to be a question of taste.
When I see the same evil repeated over and over, the same loony hate speech that would make John Birch proud return time after time, but the same preacher for thugs forgiven over and over, with Objectivists I respect turning the other cheek time after time against his malicious words, I can only conclude that they like thugs
Don't talk to me about appeasing evil anymore. The people now saying that Perigo acted in a "rational" manner is pure appeasement of evil.
I would not feel this way if I were not certain that the hate speech will repeat over and over and over and never get any better. I base my conclusion on the past.
But here's what really galls me with the present appeasement of evil by Objectivists. Despite Perigo backpedaling on preaching the murder of Obama, he did not retract his preaching the armed overthrow of the USA government. (I emphasized the part this time, since so many people missed it.)
Here is the latest installment:
Now the idea is armed revolution.
Folk seem to forget that America was founded on the basis of violent revolt, and the time when a repetition was justifiable has long past.
(I presume his view of "violent revolt" includes arms.)
Just so there is no mistake, this means that it is time to take up arms against the USA government. No. It is worse. The time to take up arms against the USA government, according to Perigo, "has long past."
And just who should engage in this "violent revolt"? Americans, of course. My comment about some deranged soul out there taking this to heart and acting on it still stands. Doesn't anyone remember Timothy McVeigh?
When Perigo recanted his crap against Obama, but did not recant this part of his crap, I thought he would not take too long to pop out with more of the same. This is the way he acts. I did not expect it to be today, but there it is. Here is the screenshot:
Let's make sure nobody misses it this time. Here is the statement and I emphasized the pertinent part:
At some point, though, I suspect freedom-lovers are going to have to repair to arms to get it back.
That is softer, but it is still preaching the armed overthrow of the USA government
. Now Perigo wants "freedom-lovers" to fight the USA government with guns. I wonder... would such armed overthrow include the murder of the USA President?
I take issue with this. I can't express how strongly I despise it.
I took 32 years to come back to the USA and I will be damned if I will remain silent before this crap.
