The Zimmerman Trial Illustrates One Thing Very Well
Liberals would be perfectly happy to destroy the rule of law. They didn't get what they wanted in the Zimmerman trial from our rule of law soooooo..... I tried to find a clip of the jury scene in A Man for All Seasons. The jury is about to leave the courtroom to deliberate, when Cromwell stops them saying they certainly can come to a decision right there and then. And, of course, like the Catholic bishops who gave Henry what he wanted to keep their heads attached to their bodies, the jury does the same. Is that what will happen the next time we see a Zimmerman-Martin type altercation?
I'm not a fan of hard rock but the lyrics of this song are exactly where we are, "If you listen to fools, the mob rules."
Cui bone? Who benefits from mob rule? Not the mob that's for sure because chaos always ends in tyranny, and tyrants couldn't care less about the mob that brought them to power? Study the French Revolution and one of its greatest critics, Edmund Burke, who championed the rule of law. Sadly, the U.S. is beginning to resemble Paris in 1789 more than Philadelphia in 1776. George Zimmerman is a victim of a new reign of terror replacing the rule of law with mob vengeance. I pray he will not be murdered, but what American in his right mind doesn't see that as a possibility?
