This is yet another example of conservative delusion. A meeting of the National Republican Club of capitol Hill on 28 June 2012 saw this exchange between Representative Paul Gosar R AZ-1 and two members of the group Unite In Action, Director of legal affairs KrisAnne Hall and President Stephani Scruggs. Congressman Gosar makes the point that demanding the follwoing of the US Constitution at all times will lead to defeat for Right wing causes. This is what happens.

As you can see both KrisAnne Hall, who used her public office as a county prosecutor to promote her Tea Party politics and depending on whom you ask in Hancock County, Florida she resigned or was fired, is admant about “following the Constitution.” Well, in daily American life the Constitution is the bedrock of civil rights but rarely does an average citizen find himself in a constitutional crisis.

Ms Hall writes at her blog, “If I were the enemy, I would want you to feel alone. I would want you to be overwhelmed. I would want you to become hopeless. It’s the natural law of predator vs. prey. Isolate them, weaken them and make them sink gradually. It is the best and most effectual way to enslave them. Make them think they are alone in their passion and beliefs and the rest of the country really wants my way, the way of the enemy. But that would be a lie. There is nothing further from the truth. How do I know this? Because, I travel this country, see this beautiful land we call America and meet the Patriots; I meet you everywhere I go.”

As a demon journalist this disturbs me on many levels. The manner and tone of what she writes is designed to inspire fear. KrisAnne Hall is like a shaman speaking to a tribe about a more advanced tribe that does not believe in her all powerful deity. She con tinues, later in the post, “There are ministers throughout this nation, still willing to take a stand for this wonderful gift of Liberty. They understand as Thomas Jefferson said,

‘God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the Liberties of a nation be thought secure, if we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of men that these Liberties are the gift of God?'”

In reading this I found myself shaking my head as I do quite often when confronted with humans who feel they are in the midst of a life and death struggle when in reality they live a pornographically better life than more than 60% of your planet’s citizens. KrisAnne Hall’s rights and liberty are not being taken away at all. What is happening in America is yet another cycle of cultural and historical shift toward minority rights. In this case in the first decade of the 21st Century this cycle includes the LGBTQ community and their struggle for rights, a renewed call to reinforce the rights of minorities to vote and the ongoing battle for a woman to have the right to govern her own body. These issues are the crux of the Culture Wars in America today.

When Ms Hall speaks of “patriots” she does not mean men like Thurgood Marshall. Medgar Evers, Malcolm X or Martin Luther King Jr. A patriot to Ms Hall is clearly someone opposed to an America where all people have an equal opportunity to succeed because those “other” people do not think, pray and love the way she has been told to do so by her G-d; she speaks of liberty as if it a gift granted only to her ideological tribe. This is a miscarriage of the true nature of the American experiment in democracy. Democracy isn’t a sword shoved into a stone, it is a large and diverse ocean that is and should be ever redefining itself for the better of future generations.

I would ask Ms Hall and her colleague Ms Scruggs exactly what liberties they no longer enjoy because there is a President in the White Hoiuse with whom they disagree vehemently. I would hope that both of them keep in mind that there is no constitutional right to tell other people how they must live their lives, nor is there any amendment that mandates conservative white Americans get to choose who can love and marry, where one is to pray or not or who is allowed to pursue happiness. What Ms Hall wants is a well armed theocracy led by false profit driven men who would give her the America she craves at the cost of her own soul.

  1. You obviously have not read or hear much of Mrs. Hall’s views. Mrs. Hall believes in religious liberty for all – including the right to not believe. She took much flack from some so-called conservatives for standing up for a Muslim’s constitutional rights to build a mosque wherever they pleased. She has said that no-one should have to ask the govt permission to be married – straight or otherwise. She has been attacked for siding with the ACLU in against NDAA and other govt abuses of individual liberty. You views are based on you own opinions not on an objective view of the woman’s views. She would fight for your rights as well as for those from her “own tribe.”
