One of the hallmarks of liberty, the very basis for what America is supposed to be, is rooted in the freedom to proclaim one’s views, no matter how popular or unpopular they may be. Everyone gets to speak so that no one can say that their voice was not heard.
That is no longer the case in America today, particularly (though no exclusively) from the left. We see this with ANTIFA, the Scalise shooting, and now we are seeing it in the case of a truck shot at in Indianapolis on the I-465 freeway, Fox 59 reports.
For proudly exercising the First Amendment, a truck flying a flag with the words, “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN” was endangered as several rounds were fired at it and it’s occupants.
The gunfire came from a “newer white 4-door Chevrolet Malibu with a Louisiana plate near Emerson Avenue around 4 p.m.,” police suspect.
Both the victims as well as witnesses say that the Malibu pulled up parallel to the truck, the car’s passenger brandished a gun, and an unknown male “fired several shots.” Thankfully, nobody was injured in the incident.
The driver of the car was described as a black male who is thought to be around 23 years of age. The passenger was said to be a lighter skinned black male and sported a sleeve tattoo on his arm. (call police at 317-899-8577 if you have any information)
The fact that no one died in this senseless act does nothing to distract from the facts at hand. How have we managed, as a people, to let the very structure of the country and processes that are meant to prevent such actions be what leads to them?
Overnight, we have gone from being a nation that had a population full of top 40 trendies watching sitcoms to being in the street barking for “our” side against “theirs.” If the side that we like loses or is rejected, we now start shooting, it seems.
There is enough blame for everyone, but let’s face the truth here: the left is showing itself to have far more violent people on their side than the gun-toters and “dangerous” people on the right.
That said, we need to ask ourselves if we want a democracy or a civil war, because as it stands, things are not looking very good.
