VDH Speaks

Historian Victor Davis Hanson told Fox News host Tucker Carlson Tuesday that the United States no longer had the rule of law and was in a “revolutionary period.”

“I hesitate to say this, we’re not in a society ruled by law,” Hanson, a senior fellow with the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” referring to attacks on pro-life groups which he argued have largely gone unpunished.

“We’re in a revolutionary period like 18th century France or 1920s Russia where the law is fluid and it’s whatever the power to say it is.”

Multiple crisis pregnancy centers, churches, and pro-life groups have been attacked since the leak of a Supreme Court opinion indicating the court is likely to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Republicans have criticized the Biden administration over alleged inaction with regards to the attacks and the attempted assassination of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh by a man who targeted the justice over potential Supreme Court rulings on abortion and gun rights.

Hanson predicted left-wing violence could increase if the non-enforcement of laws continued.

“If we put graffiti on a person’s office or burn it, what’s the next thing?” Hanson asked.

Hanson cited investigations and prosecutions targeting James O’Keefe of Project Veritas and former Trump aides Peter Navarro and Steve Bannon, contrasting it to the reaction to Eric Holder defying congressional subpoenas during the Obama administration.

“The message the left wants to send is, you better be careful because the government is on our side and not on your side,” Hanson said.

(APVictory – WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court on Thursday (today) struck down a restrictive New York gun law in a major ruling for gun rights.

The justices’ 6-3 decision is expected to ultimately allow more people to legally carry guns on the streets of the nation’s largest cities — including New York, Los Angeles and Boston — and elsewhere. About a quarter of the U.S. population lives in states expected to be affected by the ruling, the high court’s first major gun decision in more than a decade.

The ruling comes as Congress is actively working on gun legislation following recent mass shootings in Texas, New York, and California.

Justice Clarence Thomas wrote for the majority that the Constitution protects “an individual’s right to carry a handgun for self-defense outside the home.”

In their decision, the justices struck down a New York law requiring people to demonstrate a particular need for carrying a gun in order to get a license to carry one in public. The justices said the requirement violates the Second Amendment right to “keep and bear arms.”

 

For the international followers, British political culture is bizarre – there was an interview yesterday where an actual Baroness was claiming to be working class. The interviewer should have told her to jump in the (her own private) lake.

  1. The left wing and right wing are not only attached to the same bird, but the damn bird is a vulture. Actually that’s not true. Vultures are useful and are not parasitic.

    The Bird of (deep) State is a combination of a cuckoo and a shrike. The cuckoo lays its eggs in the nest of another species of bird and “tricks” the victim into raising baby cuckoos (which hatch early, and when they hatch, kick the eggs of the host species out of the nest). The shrike impales its prey alive on handy thorns. Cuckoo-shrikes dominate our society: academia, newsmedia, popular culture, finance, and over half of the justice system.

    The only thing lacking in the cuckoo/shrike analogy is that the cuckoo-shrike does not whine incessantly about how it is the REAL victim and how it’s oppressed by the mama bird raising its spawn, and how it’s oppressed by the mice and frogs that it’s impaled. Many of our cuckoo-shrikes are angry, resentful, and (genuinely!) hurt that they are not loved more. After all, THEY are the GOOD birds, who have only the purest intentions and are selflessly improving the world despite all the knuckledragging haters (-ists and -phobes) holding us back.

  2. Well good news on the 2nd amendment front. I wonder how long it will take for New York to find another way to slow leak carry permits, or perhaps they will just ignore the decision. There are really no repercussions to the politicians involved for non-compliance. If the state gets sued it will be the taxpayers that pay.

    Dr. Hanson is certainly speaking the truth. If you incentivize something then it will increase and left wing violence is certainly incentivized. VDH and Dr. Sowell both offer a lot of wisdom.

    Branco cartoon: That sure hits the nail on the head.

    • I’m sure that NY will ignore the SCOTUS decision and the prog judges will support them in their rebellion against constituted law.

      • Both NY and the US DOJ said they would ignore the decision. Respectfully decline to acknowledge the decision is how the DOJ put it.

        Rat bastards all. Need to be given the short rope, the kind where you pull the rope so they suffer lots.

        • Their decision to ignore the rule of law here is really no different than ignoring immigration law. They have nefarious plans and pawns who are willing to do their bidding. They have the FBI which is the American secret police to enforce their will irrespective of the law. Nothing has changed.

      • Had some interesting times with Rhodesian Air Force Hunters providing cover during anti-terrorist operations, back in the day. Those guys were sharp! Their accuracy with bombs or guns was phenomenal. One demonstrated that by shooting at a dustbin in a clearing in the bush. He fired five rounds total. Three hit it. Mind-boggling, and very comforting when they were dropping and firing “danger close”.

    • It doesn’t mean us normal people, it applies to politicians, especially at national levels. Way too many Republicrats and Democans both do the bidding of mysterious interests who cannot be named. (They can’t be named because they don’t exist. And anyone who believes there is such a thing as “the Deep State” is a racist, misogynist, anti-Semitic, homophobic*, cousin-humping*, bitter clinger.)

      • I am all that and I had a cousin I would hump if I had had a chance back then… she was pretty, built like the proverbial outhouse… That is why I never identify as “right wing” it applies there is a left wing attached. I identify as an Independent, and I am independent as hell and ungovernable to boot.

  3. 43 states already have pro-2nd amendment concealed carry laws, so this is directed at the 7 blue states. Let the tears flow…it’s glorious. The lawsuits will be fast and furious, but will languish in the system for years. Waiting for the other boot to drop….RoevWade dumped. Let the violence commence. Color me impressed, I expected SCOTUS to punt on this. There’s hope for the republic.

    • Shouldn’t it be posted at all of those city limits? I’m sure that somebody would equate it with being Islamophobic, homophobic, and racist.

  4. Wow. Being an HK guy I’ve had that pic as a wallpaper for quite some time. I never new his name either. They really liked those 33s because they ran no matter what and if you noticed he’s sporting a 40rd. Mag. Twice the capacity back then.
