The LA Times article on the defacing of a Styrofoam wall at Loyola-Marymount College that was decorated with statements in support of illegal immigrants raises an interesting point. While fully supporting a group in open violation of the law, they want everyone else to obey the law. They were “dismayed.” They have not thought about the implications of giving the law status as right only when we want to and being able to violate/ignore it when we want also. If they openly champion ignoring the law, then everyone else is free in their world to ignore the law, also.
We have seen this phenomena over and over with the left. #blacklivesmatter disrupts events and takes over public and private areas expecting their ignoring the law and decency is just fine, but let someone challenge them , as at the Trump rallies, and wow where are those wonderful police to arrest those violators. What is good for the goose is good for the gander, making a good reason to support the law in its forms.
