The MSM and the left (I repeat myself) is all aflutter because a Republican in Minnesota has proposed a law that would strip convicted rioters of their ability to receive government giveaways. They claim it is a violation of the rights of the criminals. Let me explain why it isn’t:
1 You have a First Amendment right to PEACEABLY assemble. If you are convicted of a violent crime, you aren’t a protester, you are a rioter. Therefore, punishing someone for violent acts committed during a riot is not a violation of your first Amendment rights, any more than convicting someone of unlawfully shooting and killing a person is a violation of their Second Amendment rights.
2 You don’t have a right to those things. They are benefits. If people had a right to them, then you could not be denied for things like income.
3 They claim it adversely affects Blacks. Well, since BLM is a black organization, and that organization is the one rioting, that isn’t surprising. Who should it affect?
Don’t want to lose your benefits? Protest, but don’t riot. Are you really so stupid that you don’t know the difference? Or do you think WE are?
