"Don't let Orlando attack make us forget that love is love" reads the headline of Tucson City Councilperson Karin Uhlich's latest screed in the Arizona Daily Black Hole.
Before you accuse me of racism, I'm black and a dying star is called a Black Hole... So let's move on.
Like many Americans, Councilperson Uhlich is filled with grief over the massacre in Orlando. 49 Americans slaughtered by a gay, self-loathing, democrat, radicalized Muslim.
Did you get all of that? It's important that you do because Uhlich said:
"Those of us who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender recognize the particular brand of hate and violence that targets us; we are not alone. Minorities (racial, ethnic and religious) and women know all too well the wrath that too often leads to violence and death."
Who is targeting you? I'm part of the group that you have labeled and I don't "recognize" the hater you are demonizing. So please, Ms. Uhlich, enlighten Tucson. Name the brand and define it for me, because when you say:
"What would happen if we stopped dissecting and debating the various brands of hatred that give rise to violence? What if we simply agreed that hate speech and violence will be confronted in no uncertain terms across our nation?"
It makes no sense. Hatred needs to be defined otherwise what you call hate could get conservatives arrested. Bet you'd like that! What you call love could easily be a loss of my freedoms.
Who has the power to define?
One thing Uhlich did mention that is spot on:
"many of you — still feel stricken with grief over the massacre in Orlando. I know we'll continue to find ways to hold one another with comfort and courage; and an earnest dialogue amongst us will reveal how we can best heal and take action to honor the victims and survivors and their families."
Truer words were never written. Problem is—Uhlich does not want honest or earnest dialogue with people who might have a different idea on what was the cause of the massacre. Instead, she wants to use those lives she claims she values, to ensure that you can't preserve yours if need be.
Manipulation. That's the serpent behind her childlike innocence.
Uhlich wants to control your speech and... she wants your guns. You know, those things that might save you during a home invasion! Or in a movie theatre, or a night club. (Or the gun that might kill the deer that might be the only source of protein for some residents of the 8th poorest metropolitan area in the country... Just saying.)
Call me cynical. Call me jaded, but this is how I interpret the Councilperson's compassion, because just like our President, she is not comfortable enough to name the hate.
Karen Uhlich doesn't give a warm crap about the Orlando slain in any way except that their tragedy provides her with a platform to advance her agenda. If she truly believed the asinine circular logic of "Love is love. Love is love," maybe she would have picked up a Bible for the definition of love instead of reaching for the racist Southern Poverty Law Center (splcenter.org) and the Anti-Defamation League (adl.org) propaganda. Both organizations track their brand of hate groups and so called violent extremism, in all of their forms... hate defined by the Left.
Who are the real haters?
Let me define hate since Karen Uhlich wouldn't. Let's start with the people who are truly out to kill us. Radicalized Muslims. This is the group of haters that is told that killing members of the LGBT community is compassionate – not hateful. You see, they believe their hate is love. They believe their violence is justified.
But hey, what would you expect from a Uhlich who belongs to an ideology that believes attacks on conservatives and Christians is civil because their targets are not?
"Imagine a time when hate speech and violence are consistently met with real consequences: when a security guard at G4S who alarms a co-worker with his rageful rants is intercepted, and it's not the co-worker who loses his job."
Earth to Uhlich... The guy lost his job because of the same political correctness you impose! So try this: Imagine a time when we can call out hate and not be afraid that we will be accused of being Isalmophobic, or racist, or homophobic, or a tea bagger or an Uncle Tom, etc.
Imagine all the people living for today... woohoo... If we did, maybe the gay, self-loathing, democrat, radicalized Muslim would have never had the chance to murder 49 innocent Americans.
Now... What is love?
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
