Leftists claim personal exemption to the law


Glenn Thrush follows the White House for Politico. Cathy Lanier is the chief of police in DC.

So what are we to make of this thinking? Are we to understand that there is a “public interest” exemption to the law? If so, it seems to be a fairly recent addition to criminal code.

If there is such an exemption, who is to determine what is in the public interest? It seems obvious to me, for example, that advocating for the disarmament of the citizenry is not, in fact, in the public interest. On the contrary, agitating for the weakening of the Bill of Rights is contrary to the public interest.

The reality, of course, is that leftist journalists believe they are both above the law and the sole arbiters of what is and isn’t in the public good.

After all, they are protecting you from yourself.

    Glenn Thrush is advocating corruption between the police department and the news outlets.
    Leftists are about lawlessness.

    He is saying that it is acceptable break criminal statutes with impunity to further ideological and partisan ends… as long as the ends are leftist.

  3. R.D. Walker says:

    Leftist logic: If you’re pressing for stricter gun laws, it gives you license to break the gun laws we already have,

    Nothing is going to happen to David Gregory, and by the end of it, you folks will be ridiculed for attempting to harass a member of the press.

    Our laws do not apply to Democrats.

    Get used to that.

    The police? They’ll protect Democrats. Prosecutors? They won’t prosecute Democrats or donors.

    It’s nothing new. It’s not newsworthy.

    You live in a corrupt country. Because you’re unwilling to do what is required to END that. If it were up to you we’d all be curtsying the Queen.

    So shut the fuck up, whiners.

    Accept your fate.

    Someguy is telling you he already gave up, and you should join him.

    Someguy called it…

    Seems that David Gregory and NBC news, who violated the law on national TV, went and got permission from the ATF. Seems that once the Obama Administration stepped in, permission was granted. It’s OK to break the law so long as it’s propaganda for the administration. And the permission looks to have come 3 days too late? i.e., they phoned in a favor after the fact.

    Selective enforcement of the law is a pretty common theme with this administration.

    The ATF doesn’t enforce DC laws but, never mind. It obfuscates things enough to make it all go away… just like someguy said.

    By the way, it is a dumb ass law but pro-gun people generally take the stance that existing laws should be enforced. I am in agreement with this. If it is a bad law, change it, but selective enforcement is evil.
