Recently I wrote about the amount of vigilantes that are hitting our streets….all claim to be ‘policing’ the society….but read it for yourself……https://lobotero.com/2022/01/04/vigilantes-on-parade/
Think back to the days of the Nazis when people were used to spy and inform on friends and family….or the East German Stasi that used people in the same manner…..and that disgusting trend is appearing here in the US…….
So now Texas deputizes its citizens to snitch on women getting abortions, while Oklahoma authorizes its parents to police school libraries. If an Oklahoma parent objects to a book in the school library, and it’s not gone in 24 hours, the librarian gets fired. Clearly this new vigilantism is a trend. Constitutional rights to privacy or against censorship are flying out the window.
What next? Well, think about it: Deputizing Montanans to rat on neighbors who won’t hunt wolves, or empowering oil and gas companies to sue pipeline protestors. Deputizing busybodies to report their neighbors for using birth control. Rewarding Floridians for informing the local prosecutor on anyone who uses the phrase “climate change” (after all, former governor Rick Scott banned the term, an imbecility he should never be allowed to forget). Authorizing anyone to punch anyone who tells them to wear a face mask. Deputizing parents to sue school systems that require ANY vaccines. Allowing anyone to ram their car into anyone they think “might be antifa.” Basically, just name anything currently annoying the idiotic average American reactionary and before long that creature will be deputized to take action against it, as if it were as objectionable as cannibalism. The list is endless.
So it’s time to turn this stupid fad on its head. California’s plan to deputize its citizens against gun manufacturers blazes the way. Governor Gavin Newsom produced this stupendous idea and he’s to be commended. If Californians sue gun manufacturers out of business – voila! No more school slaughters. Who cares about the second amendment, especially when Oklahoma already ditched the first? Clearly, it’s open season on the bill of rights – most of which American morons oppose on principle anyway.
Blue states could also deputize their citizens to sue hospitals that give beds to unvaccinated covid patients. It sounds nasty, but vaccine advocates will no doubt argue that anti-vaxxers are there by choice. They opted not to protect themselves against a lethal plague. And how is suing the hospital and doctors that enable their lousy choice any different from suing a doctor for providing an abortion to a 12-year-old raped by her HIV-positive uncle? Once you start chopping down constitutional rights, soon the whole forest disappears. But hey, Homo Americanus clearly thinks those rights are defective, insofar as he can be said to think at all.
Like I stated earlier….this is a disgusting trend to turn neighbor on neighbor…..I agree that something needs to be done to stop this slide in our rights.
If you are voting then know what you are voting for….not some face or some lameass slogan….this country deserves better from its people.

I have thought this idiocy of De Santis of Florida and now Brian Kemp of Georgia pontificating the creation of some kind of election police has a strange echo of the 1930’s “Brown Shirts” that were the party’s uniformed and unarmed (firearms, that is) intimidation thugs.
We seem to have a plethora (my word of the day) of groups wanting to be the ‘brown shirts’….it is a scary time. chuq
I keep coming back to ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’. It won’t be long before that is reality in the USA.
If you haven’t read the book, you should watch the TV series.
Best wishes, Pete.
Sue has it on our watch list….soon I think….thanx for the suggestion. chuq
