The Unintended Ironical Hypocrisy of the Collectivists on Full Display in NYPD Killings.

Turn on the television and you will see the clips of marchers in NYC chanting "What do we want?" Answered by "DEAD COPS!" Followed by "When do we want it?" "NOW!" These clips are followed by much hand-wringing by the collectivist talking heads that people are making a connection between the anti-police rhetoric and actions of Eric Holder and the mayor of NYC (dubbed "Big Bird" by his critics) and the assassination of the two policemen.
"Wait," they demand, "you can't blame our First Amendment expressions for cold-blooded murder. The one has nothing to do with the other." Of course these are the same people who blamed Rush Limbaugh and the militia movement for Timothy McVeigh and the OKC bombing. They are the same people who blamed me for the Georgia Waffle House geezers whose "deadly plot" was conveniently uncovered by an FBI snitch.
So which is it? If they are not guilty, then I am not guilty. If Eric Holder is innocent in the present circumstance then so was Rush Limbaugh and the militia movement at the time of Oklahoma City. It is one or the other. If I am guilty then they are guilty. Or not. Pick one, you lying collectivist bastards, and own it.
Of course the larger question is not either/or nor is it a zero sum game. As I have written before, it is possible to criticize the militarization of police without embracing race rioting as a proper response. But the deliciousness of the collectivists' current discomfiture is marvelous for those of us who have been the victim of their lying propaganda for years.

'magine the uproar if firearms 'activists' had started shooting Police after the Olympia Rally?

For more schadenfreude, scroll down a little past the halfway point to see crowd of NYPD officers all turning their backs to Mayor de Blasio.

It's somewhere between difficult and impossible to know whether the two dead NYPD officers warrant any mourning, but I can think of few greater gifts to society than the resulting friction between NYC's tyrant and enforcer castes.

Also, the same article contains an interesting quote from the arrogant thugs of the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association:

The mayor's hands are literally dripping with our blood because of his words, actions and policies and we have, for the first time in a number of years, become a "wartime" police department. We will act accordingly.

Cue Bloomberg's Banshees shrieking about NYC's complete lack of gun control laws in 3...2...1...

Oregon Hobo:

I can answer your question. All members of the NYPD are willingly part of an organization that uses armed force to blatantly violate natural and constitutional rights, i.e., to impose tyranny. It makes as much sense to mourn their deaths as to mourn the deaths of the Redcoats who were shot by the early Americans.
