At what point do we begin to crack skulls?

“The orgies of violent attacks against strangers on the streets -- in both England and the United States -- are not necessarily just passing episodes. They should be wake-up calls, warning of the continuing degeneration of Western society. […] Not only the trends over the years leading up to these riots but also the squeamish responses to them by officials -- on both sides of the Atlantic -- reveal the moral dry rot that has spread deep into Western societies Even when black youth gangs target white strangers on the streets and spew out racial hatred as they batter them and rob them, mayors, police chiefs and the media tiptoe around their racism and many in the media either don't cover these stories or leave out the race and racism involved. […] Our elites often advise us to learn from other countries. They usually mean that we should imitate other countries. But it may be far more important to learn from their mistakes -- the biggest of which may be listening to fashionable nonsense from the smug intelligentsia.”
— Thomas Sowell, 8/18/2011 (

'“He who does something at the head of one Regiment, will eclipse him who does nothing at the head of a hundred.” — A. Lincoln, Dec. 31, 1861.

Whether you're a liberal who wants government solutions for whatever ails you, or you're a conservative who wants government to provide only that which can not be provided by private enterprise, there are certain services that every citizen who is not psychotic wants, nay must have, from his government. Protection from mob rule is one such "must have". Another, I submit, is protection from insufferable intelligentsia.

How much idiocracy is, finally, enough? I know; we mustn't rush to judgement. Heaven forbid we ignore any shred of extenuating circumstance. Every motherf*cker must have his day in court. It is the decent, thoughtful, warm and fuzzy thing to do. Better to acquit a trillion guilty than to convict a single innocent. I know all this, and, yes, I support the underlying principles.

But at what point do we begin to crack skulls? When do we finally say, "Enough! The next motherf*cker who rampages through my neighborhood with lit torch in hand gets his f*ckin' head blown off!"? Do we wait until our Neville Chamberlain has exhausted all avenues of pacification? Must we sacrifice everything that law-abiding citizens have labored long and hard to achieve, including a modicum of safety and security? Do we really have to suffer every inanity perpetrated by our bowing and scraping President until, heaven help us, we kick his sorry ass out of office in 2012?

Is there, finally, no decency left in the land of the free and the home of the brave? Why not? By what contortions of common sense must we abandon 235 years of protecting the world's last best hope?

F*ck the intelligentsia. And f*ck the horse it came in on.
