Left wing groups supporting the Democrat party seem to have lost the ability to take democracy for an answer. Democrats seem always ready to push the limits of dissent and protest, have taken to vandalism, terrorizing old women and now some suspect, terrorism as “white Powder is mailed to the Mormons. I suppose it’s possible that an aggrieved Lutheran might have sent the powder; but some people think it might be disgruntled homosexuals whose proposition 8 tantrum has now crossed the terrorist line. Just who sent the white powder and why, a mystery remains, but one may take some educated guesses and conclude that too many of the client groups of the democrats are too willing to go rogue when their social engineering plans are thwarted. That is a prescription for disaster in a peaceful democracy. Here is another unfortunate truth: You won’t hear many Democrat bigwigs denounce this conduct and condemn the homosexual community for not playing by the rules.
The Mormon Church has been targeted in recent days since they helped pass Proposition 8 in California that would deny homosexuals the right to marry. In a long, bitter, and costly election fight the Church prevailed and the homosexuals went down to defeat: and then the real trouble began. Apparently the homosexuals believe they can intimidate people who disagree with them from exercising their constitutional votes by vandalism, threats to old women, and anonymous white powder mailed to churches. While it’s a given that such tactics smack of cowardice it also seems to mark a sea change in the class warfare rhetoric perpetuated by the Democrat Party. Some of the client groups are so charged up that they’re increasingly inclined toward lawless behavior when thwarted at the ballot box. It was widely understood that if Obama wasn’t elected that we would face riots from the racism that denied Obama his rightful victory. I doubt that the threat had an impact on the vote but it was made and now it seems that the Prop 8 people may be taking such threats to heart.
I dare say that it’s only a matter of weeks before the courts overrule the people once again and find a legal loophole to keep homosexual marriage alive in the golden state. Rule by judicial fiat has been instrumental in overriding the peoples will in both homosexual marriage laws and earlier in abortion. It’s as if our ruling political elite appoint judges to enact laws whenever they can’t con the people into going along with something the people fundamentally oppose. It’s a sorry commentary on the state of our democracy that judicial abuse will succeed where some sick individual with an envelope of white powder addressed to a church failed. Consider the following piece from the Associated Press.
Mormon Temples in Utah, L.A. Targeted With White Powder
Thursday , November 13, 2008
LOS ANGELES —
Letters containing a suspicious white powder were sent to Mormon temples in Los Angeles and Salt Lake City that were the sites of protests against the church’s support of California’s gay marriage ban.
The temple in the Westwood area of Los Angeles was evacuated Thursday before a hazardous materials crew determined the envelope’s contents were not toxic, said FBI spokesman Jason Pack.
The temple in downtown Salt Lake City, where the church is based, received a similar envelope containing a white powder that spilled onto a clerk’s hand.
The room was decontaminated and the envelope taken by the FBI for testing. The clerk showed no signs of illness, but the scare shut down a building at Temple Square for more than an hour, said Scott Freitag, a spokesman for the Salt Lake City Fire Department.
None of the writing on the envelope was threatening, and the church received no calls or messages related to the package, Freitag said.
Protests in recent days have targeted the Mormon church, which encouraged its members to fight the recently passed amendment banning gay marriage in California.
Authorities are looking into several theories on who sent the letters and why, Pack said.
Anthrax mailed as a white powder to Washington lawmakers and media outlets killed five people and sickened 17 just weeks after the attacks of September 11, 2001. Periodic hoaxes modeled on the anthrax mailings have popped up since then but usually prove harmless.
