Jean-Guy Tremblay Returns! Petitions for Everything to Be 'Human Rights'
Jean-Guy Tremblay is back and he's better than ever. At least his English is. Actually no, that's a lie, but you have to give him ten points for enthusiasm. One cannot award him points on style.
Last time, Jean-Guy was the star of a Bernie Sanders rally, where he met so many wonderful socialists with entitled hearts of stolen gold. This time Jean-Guy wants to secure human rights. By using good old fashioned democracy to get them.
Notice something? Jean-Guy starts with free healthcare. Had no problem getting signatures. So he moved on. Free education as a human right? Of course. But why stop there? People need a place to stay, they need a place to live. HUMAN RIGHT. Well if you have a house provided by the government based on your "human need," why not government-provided food? Government provided hygiene equipment? HUMAN RIGHT. Remember that ladies next time you need more tampons.
But then everyone signs onto free transportation, water, free internet, 1 year maternity leave, 1 year paternity leave, the "right sex anybody"... and the right to ban the Second Amendment.
Don't complain, Jean-Guy used democracy to get all those signatures. The sad thing is, not a hard sell. All Jean-Guy had to say was "but you need the internet." Need=Human Right. It's amazing just HOW many people are willing to sign on to declare all these things be human rights. But hey... that's Democratic socialism (Watch: Debunking the Myth of 'Democratic' Socialism).
This is where we are. Enough people believe their need, their wants = rights. For no other reason than someone, somewhere (perhaps Jean-Guy's mother), said "I need that thing. Ergo I have a right to it." Healthcare, education, marriage. Somehow all turned into "rights." Because someone wanted them. Because enough people banned together in a mob and demanded them.
Herein lies the danger of "democratic socialism," the same brand of socialism touted by Bernie Sanders. He may not have won the nomination, but he's the direction the Democrat party is headed. Hang onto your butts, yes. But more importantly, hang onto your rights. Your real rights.
