After the tensions from this crime have receded it is really time to discuss immigration, free expression and defing deviancy down. This is probably not a conversation many of you are ready for.
However, much of the blame belongs directly on the far left.
Immigration is not and never was a divine right. It comes with a set of responsabilities and is predicated on obeying laws. The first and foremost duty as a member of society is to respect others.
Freedom of expression is part of our traditions. It allows some really nasty types to say very offensive
things. It protects the rights of loathesome types like David Duke, Al Sharpton and Mayor De Blassio to say stupid things. One may respond to the offensive speech with many legal responses. However, any type of violence is unacceptable.
The reality is that Muslims really need to ask themselves if they can live in a society where freedom of expression is as sacred to our values as the Koran. You are free to practice your faith, but you must respect that others have rights as well. If you can not accept the rights of others to think and live differently than please leave. There are ample places where you can reside under religious law but not
in this country.
The left has been particularly irresponsible. For many years it has blurred the line and rationalized unacceptable behaviors from terrorism to incitement. There is no excuse for chants of Dead Cops.
There is no excuse for violence if you dont appreciate the content of a magazine.
The time for rationalizations and excuses is over.
