No one screams about their tolerance, goodness and basic decency louder, longer or with more ferocity than a committed liberal/democrat/progressive. No one cares more than they do about the important issues of the day. Whether its gun control or tolerance, they simply know better than you do in every account. Having placed themselves on the pedestal of humanistic Demi Godhood it is simply not allowed, or even comprehensible, why us knuckle dragging neanderthals in flyover country should question the results of their policies.
Liberal/democrats/progressives or, as I know them, the party of hate, know no bounds when it comes to signaling their virtue over the likes of regular working Americans. If that regular working American happens to be a veteran, well, he is screwed. Allow me to introduce you to Simeon D. Mokhiber.
(Full disclosure time. As a licensed armed security officer of many years I have frequently come into contact with law enforcement. As a general rule LE does not like security. The most common reaction I get is polite indifference. Many times though it much closer to intolerance. That being said, I have met the rare officer who understands and accepts security as a valuable addition to public safety. In general I harbor no animosity to LE, even the one who pulled his gun on me when I was pulled over for having a headlight out. I was in uniform and informed the officer that I had just gotten off work and still had my sidearm on my duty belt. Of course I did not get the fix it ticket everyone else gets I had to pay dearly. Still, I try to give LE the benefit of the doubt but this case makes me wonder. That being said cops who cross the line get no sympathy from me at all.)
Mr. Mokhiber is a nine year Army veteran. He was part of Operation Iraqi Freedom, was a licensed armed security guard in the state of New York and had worked as an armed private security contractor in Iraq and Afghanistan. Did I mention he had no criminal record? Well now, courtesy of Gov. Andrew Cuomo, democrat liberal hate monger NY, this American hero is now a potential three time felon. So what exactly did this father of a disabled eight year old daughter do? Read on dear reader.
Back in April 2016 Mr. Mokhiber was pulled over for speeding. Despite being sober the police required him to perform field sobriety tests. Nothing to see here, yet. Apparently the cops took issue with Mr. Mokhiber’s request that the officers activate their body cameras. They proceeded to arrest him and without his permission or a warrant search his vehicle.
Let us take a pause here to examine what has happened so far. Speeding is hardly a federal offense and we have already established that Mr. Mokhiber had no criminal record. The fact is, by the time the cops began the sobriety tests they would have known Mr. Mokhiber had no criminal record and was, at worst, a low level threat. So why the arrest? Could it be the cops did not appreciate a “civilian” asking for his rights to be honored? Did the overwhelmingly liberal nature of the area play a role? Given that this happened in New York I fear that is highly probable. So at this point we have a highly suspect arrest, but lets continue.
The highly questionable search of Mr. Mokhibers’s vehicle produced a locked container. The container, opened without a warrant or Mr. Mokhiber’s permission, revealed three 17-round Glock handgun magazines. All three magazines were empty and there was no gun on Mr. Mokhiber or in his vehicle. As an aside Mr. Mokhiber is the owner of a licensed and registered handgun. So again, why the arrest?
Personally, I suspect it was a case of “badgeittude” getting out of control. Still, one cannot absolve the system that created the conditions that led to this travesty of justice. New York recently passed a law that makes possessing an “ammunition feeding device” capable of holding more than 10 rounds a felony. The penalty is a maximum of seven years in prison. Mr. Mokhiber, an Army veteran with no criminal record now faces up to 21 years in prison.
Doubtlessly, the gun control lunatics will celebrate this outrage as an outstanding achievement by law enforcement in their continuing efforts to “protect” us from marauding criminal elements. I have no doubt the politically correct police chief will much ballyhoo his officers courage under trying circumstances. You know, from a man who never posed a threat in the first place. Perhaps a presidential medal of honor is in order? Oh wait, the Kenyan moslem in chief isn’t in charge any more. Guess the hater in chief Cuomo will have to come up with something appropriate. May I suggest a couple of boxes of tissues? One for their tears of joy and one for our tears of sorrow. As for the officers who arrested Mr. Mokhiber and all those who participated in his prosecution the ugliness of your goodness is showing.
Unsatisfied with simply telling us what we can or cannot have liberals also perpetuate some deadly myths in the name of “tolerance”. We must, they say, be tolerant of the LGBTQXYZRTW crowd. Isn’t it obvious they bleat, staring blankly as they utter their “truth”, that there are at least 52 genders? What, they ask, is wrong with teaching two year olds that gender is a fluid concept? Or that Heather can have two mommies? Honestly, they say, given that NAMBLA only advocates tolerant loving relationships between men and young boys what could possibly be wrong with that? After all love trumps hate! From simple minds…..
Allow me to inject some reason into the “argument.”
In 2016 the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published a study titled “Sexual Identity, Sex of Sexual Contacts, and Health Related Behaviors Among Students in Grades 9-12”. The results are tragic, sadly predictable and entirely unreported. I will only summarize its findings here.
The study compared two groups: students engaging in homersexual activity vs. students with no sexual contact.
Students engaging in homersexual activity were:
- Eight times more likely to smoke
- 47 times more likely to smoke frequently (20 or more cigarettes in the month prior to the survey)
- Nearly three times as likely to have tried alcohol prior to age 13
- Three and a half times as likely to be currently using alcohol
- More than 11 times as likely to binge drink (10 or more drinks in a row)
- Nearly six times as likely to be currently using marijuana
- More than 16 times as likely ever to have used hallucinogenic drugs
- More than 18 times as likely ever to have used cocaine
- 30 times as likely ever to have used heroin
- 23 times as likely ever to have used methamphetamines
None of this should come as a surprise to the average observer, you know, someone who doesn’t think in punchlines. (An average observer meaning someone who doesn’t get his/her information from the corrupt mainstream media, public school, ivy league colleges, left wing websites or late night so called comedy shows.) These results also tend to produce the ideal liberal/progressive/democratic voter, ie to drugged up, intellectually ignorant and to focused on his/her/its gender/genitals to think straight.
The CDC in 2014 also reported that homersexual men were much more likely to contract nearly every STD known. For any public school graduates reading this that means diseases like syphilis, chlamydia and gonorrhea. In 2014 homersexual behavior accounted for 75% of all cases of syphilis in the US. The CDC also notes that while homersexuals only make up approximately 2 percent of the population they make up 55 percent of all people living in the US with HIV. In fact, in 2014, homersexual men made up over two thirds of all new HIV case in the US.
In his groundbreaking book Homosexuality and the Politics of Truth, Dr. Jeffrey Satinover notes that homersexuality often and far to frequently leads to:
- A 25- to 30-year decrease in life expectancy
- Chronic, potentially fatal, liver disease – infectious hepatitis, which increases the risk of liver cancer
- Inevitably fatal immune disease including associated cancers
- Frequently fatal rectal cancer
- Multiple bowel and other infectious diseases
- A much higher than usual incidence of suicide
In the face of such terrifying and continually mounting evidence liberals demand that these behaviors not only be accepted, glorified even, but be taught as early as preschool. Anyone who points out the obvious, that homersexuality is not normal and is in fact dangerous, must be destroyed. They must be destroyed personally, professionally and financially. Such is the liberal/progressive/democrat definition of tolerance.
These social justice warriors blindly believe that young children must be given the opportunity to experience gonorrhea up close and personal, must experience the joys of drug addiction and must have as many sexual partners as possible. This is beyond tragic because the “leaders” of these social justice warriors know everything I have just told you. Knowing the devastation that follows these “accepted” behaviors makes these “leaders” evil in its purest form.
Truly, the ugliness of their goodness is showing.
