Death threats are never acceptable.
Er…really? If I see a burly man about to bring an axe down on a little girl’s head, and I say “drop the weapon or I’ll empty this 13-round clip into your torso”…that’s not acceptable? Okay, I’ll blow him away without warning, then. Cry me a river, girly-man. Your opinion’s worth can be measured in microgiveashits.
What I don’t find acceptable are substitutions for reason. Obviously there’s a place for death threats. Claiming otherwise merely damages one’s credibility. I agree that abortion isn’t the place for them, but note our current situation. We’ve reached the point where “ethicists” argue for “after-birth abortion”. I’m perfectly willing to listen to their argument without slitting their miserable throats…after they define the difference between “a-b abortion” and “infanticide”. Have they?
(Rhetorical question, btw.)
The good guys let things get way too complicated because they’re not willing to take on the bad guys. If it’s wrong for me to march into a hospital’s maternity ward and start dashing out the brains of newborns, it’s wrong for anyone to pitch the idea of “after-birth abortion”. Yes. Things have actually become this simple. This is where we are. And if we don’t beat the holy crap out of today’s “ethicists”, tomorrow they’ll be saying that killing pre-verbal homo sapien sapiens is okay.
The Lesser Races will be next, until we get to some…shall we say…
