No, Richard Kim, The U.S. Is Not As Jacked Up As Syria, Despite Your Ilk

Melissa Harris-Perry’s show featured Richard Kim from The spouting what initially seemed more Commie piffle, but then I realized it’s kind of revelatory:

Do we want to live in that night?”Not with your creepy little indecent self, Kim. Why don’t you go line up for Sarah Silverman?

Kim Smitty
“The Dark Knight takes place in a failed state… because elites are corrupt, law enforcement’s corrupt. So far, so good. Are you going to preach that we should redistribute power, instead of redistributing wealth through that corrupt state?
But the thing that really marks it as a failed state is that the state has lost its monopoly on violence. What? There will never be a violence-free state, ever. And if you’re going to play the ‘monopoly’ card, then where in your argument would our real-world Crips, Bloods, and MS-13 fit in? Would you contend the U.S. is a failed state?
And in that situation, right, you have vigilantes like Batman, you have organized crime, you have terrorists. Kim, where in your Commie realm does the individual retain the ultimate right of self defense? Anywhere?
And what the movie depicts is that it’s very difficult in a failed state to tell what is just and unjust violence, right? Is it? Do you believe in any sort of ultimate Truth, and the freewill capacity of individuals to apply rationality to discern that Truth?
When you have people like George Zimmerman encouraged to vigilantism because we’ve cut all these police forces, you have the shards of a failed state so I think that’s a very profound, a very profound, sort of reflection, a dark reflection, really. Oh, you sucker-punching twerp! If there is any anti-justice vigilante afoot, Kim, it’s your little smarmy butt, Kim.

    Richard Kim is an idiot. He must not know about the Supreme Court ruling that says the police aren’t legally required to protect you. They just investigate the crime, gather evidence and maybe prosecute the criminal.

    Well played Smitty.  Well-reasoned, spot-on.  Unambiguous.  I loved your retort.

    Yeah, not so much a “dark reflection,” Richard Kim, as a tendency of you statist clowns to look upon liberty through smoked, apocalypse-sensitive lenses, and react in fear.

    Smitty, I like the table format for breakdown of a person’s argument.  I know it has its limitations, but you make it work.

    Also: in the history of the formation of police departments on all levels I dare any Leftist to show me where the people, The Sovereignty, ever gave up the right to protect themselves.

    In Kim’s utopia the state is the sole arbiter of morality through the “law”. In Kim’s utopia the state makes all our choices for us. If the state has a monopoly on violence then only state violence can be moral. This works so well for all of us because when seconds count the police are only minutes away.

     Because no state has ever been the dispenser of immoral violence.

    Those kulaks just decided on a really extreme weight loss plan…..
