Comment Of The Day: “Ethics Dunce, And That’s Not The Half Of It: ESPN Host Sarah Spain”

I confess: I was immediately drawn to Steve-O-in NJ’s comment because it gave me another opportunity to post my favorite ethics film clip of all, Sir Thomas More’s speech from “A Man For All Seasons.”

But Steve’s comment, on the post, “Ethics Dunce, And That’s Not The Half Of It: ESPN Host Sarah Spain,” is a worthy Comment of the Day on its own.

Here it is…

***

I have to laugh, because the same persons who want to come for the conservatives today were saying “First they came for the Muslims – and then we said, “not this time motherf***ers!” at the beginning of 2017.

These days it’s more like:

First they came for the Second Amendment, and I said nothing, because they said they were protecting schoolchildren.

Then they came for the Fourth Amendment – and I said nothing, because they said if you had nothing to hide, then you had nothing to fear.

Then they came for the Fifth Amendment – and I said nothing, because they were just streamlining the process to get bad people out of society.

Then they came for the First Amendment – and I said nothing, because they were just stopping the spread of disinformation and misinformation.

Then they came for me – and I was disarmed, cowed and silenced,with no protection, so I had no choice but to go quietly with them.

  1. I’m always super-impressed by the way you (generally in the plural, referring to Jack and all of you, but in this specific case, Steve-O in the singular) are able to distill great thoughts to a primary essence. This COTD is a prime example.

  2. “Then they came for me – and I was disarmed, cowed and silenced, with no protection, so I had no choice but to go quietly with them.”

    We always have a choice.

    • Very true Batman.
      The only thing we don’t have a choice in is death. Everything else is optional. Of course, all decisions and actions come with consequences. This is why so many prefer the role of victim. So many prefer complaining to taking a stand. So many lack the courage to voice opposition to the anti-constitutional woke pestilence consuming our nation.

      The founders of our great nation pledged their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor to each other. Do we deserve what was passed down to us if we are afraid to speak out because of what our neighbors might think? I do not advocate violence or unlawfulness. I do advocate advocating for your constitutional and God-given freedoms. I advocate advocating against the bullies controlling the conversation. I advocate individuals provide leadership to their peers to inspire them to lend their voice to the chorus of opposition to the cancer consuming our country.
