Journal News Hires Armed Guards For Protection
Some of the armed guards, no doubt, are listed among the legal gun permit holders the same Journal News exposed as though they were child molesters.
The Journal News of West Nyack, N.Y., has hired armed security guards to defend its offices after receiving a torrent of phone calls and emails responding to the paper's publication of the names and addresses of area residents with pistol permits. (Source)
What's good for the goose, good for the gander? Somehow I don't think so. You see, in the liberal mind, self defense is only deemed necessary from the threat of right wing extremism and NRA militants. Common crime, committed by those desperate, destitute democrats (often referred as "the 99%") is only the result of inequality and unfair practices of the wealthy. Which means they - the criminals - are the true victims and no one really has the right to defend themselves from victims.
Yes, the legally armed woman in hiding is not the victim of an abusive ex-husband. She is a victim of a violent, conservative society that refused to give her ex-husband the success he so desired in life, which ultimately led to his abusive nature. Her insistence in arming herself only contributes to that dissolute society. So, in fact, she is complicit in her own circumstances and her ex-husband is the real victim.
The leftist leaning hypocrites at the Journal News have every right to defend themselves from the vocal political dissenters that threaten an agenda driven platform, especially if that defense will lend credibility to the victim status of those pushing that agenda. In their minds, they have been forced to defend from the very threats they exposed in the first place. Rather than seeing the hypocrisy and irony in surrounding themselves with armed guards, they will see only vindication.
