All animals are created equal.
But some are more equal than others.
If you hadn’t guessed by my last post I am a bit of a George Orwell fan. And, while I enjoyed 1984, it is the fable of Animal Farm that captured my heart.
I was first shown the classic cartoon when I was about 7 years old by my Italian teacher while my family was living abroad. As I read the subtitles, naturally I was a little confused that this wasn’t Babe.
Being older now I have to wonder if this was an intentional act, maybe a way my teacher could warn the younger generations about the rise of communism and decry the evil that Mussolini and Italy were very much a part of.
Or, maybe she didn’t realize it wasn’t Babe either.
Regardless, we all know this story, it’s an allegory on human nature. Some people will always believe that they are better than other people, and in being better, they will control and persecute those who are ‘below’ them.
I am beginning to notice this Animal Farm-esque rhetoric in the self devouring monster we still politely refer to as the Democratic Party.
March for and support all women except conservative women.
Feel unequal and discriminated against? Write a new law for people to ignore so you feel like you made a change and call anyone who disagrees with you a sexist or racist.
Want to reduce violence against women and children? Just make sure to refuse to consider how increased border security and vetting of refugees could cut down on human trafficking and genital mutilation of young girls.
Which leads me to my point.
This past weekend a group of young women were at a restaurant. Their waiter gave them free liquor, knowing that they were underage. The waiter then followed them into the bathroom and sexually assaulted them.
Am I the only one here who sees a big red flag?
A full grown man uses his position to intoxicate underage women. While he’s on the job. He follows them into the bathroom, a secluded place, and sexually assaults them.
What this man did was methodical, it is not uncommon for rapists to take advantage of intoxicated people, or to intoxicate them intentionally.
And as terrible and outrageous as this crime is, the man was only charged with misdemeanors.
Did I mention the part where the man who committed the assault is a Mexican National?
Now, I have zero tolerance for sexual assault to begin with. But, this was committed by a non-citizen. This man is as the article states, “a Mexican National”. So, why are we keeping this man in our country and only charging him with misdemeanors? His behaviour was predatory, and we are giving him a free pass to do it again.
I can only think to explain it like this:
All sex offenders are bad. But liberal bias means some aren’t as bad as others, especially if they are Mexican Nationals and you want to avoid the bad press of getting ICE getting involved.
I’m no George Orwell, but that seems about right to me.
I think the DA has some explaining to do.
