Selective Civil Rights

Imagine, if you will, this horrific scene in 2008, where terrifying right-wing activists blocked the roadway - stopping people from hearing the words and ideas of then Senator and presidential candidate Barack Obama.

Instantaneously, the following self-described Civil Rights organizations would spring into action, calling for the arrest and conviction of the haters that were taking away the civil rights of their fellow Americans.
NAACP:  The mission of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination.
ACLU:  For nearly 100 years, the ACLU has been our nation’s guardian of liberty, working in courts, legislatures, and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties that the Constitution and the laws of the United States guarantee everyone in this country.
LCCR:  The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights is a coalition charged by its diverse membership of more than 200 national organizations to promote and protect the civil and human rights of all persons in the United States. 
Rainbow PUSH Coalition:  Our mission is to protect, defend, and gain civil rights by leveling the economic and educational playing fields, and to promote peace and justice around the world
As anyone who has even glanced at a TV, the Internet or picked up a newspaper knows, these abusers of American Civil Rights pictured above are not right-wing fanatics stopping supporters of Barry.  They're left-wing fanatics stopping supporters of Trump.

Apparently, these civil right organizations - who purport to defend the civil rights of all Americans - have one teeny-weeny exception to their laudable missions statements:  Conservatives and libertarians need not apply.

But it begs the question:  Why HAVEN'T these bastards been arrested en mass?  I see that 3 of them have been arrested, 
Enriquez later told CNN that three protesters were arrested and two cars were towed from the boulevard. The deputy emphasized that the arrests were due to protesters blocking the roadway, not because of the protest itself.
Wrap your head around that last sentence.  They were arrested for traffic violations, and the PC Police made sure it was clear that it wasn't because of their protest?

THEIR protest!?  No mention of them infringing on the civil rights of the people going to a political meeting.  Are you fucking kidding me?

Where is the Justice Department with their "At-the-drop-of-a-hat Civil Rights Investigation"?  I guess they've got the "conservatives and libertarian exclusion clause" as well.

In my mind, this is no different than Klansmen keeping blacks out of the voter booth.  Or Black Panthers doing the same to whites in Philly in 2008 [youtube].

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Your right to protest - to speak freely - doesn't supersede my right to get to work, freely walk down the street or run my business without being vandalized.  Or to attend a political rally, regardless of how much you hate what's being said at that rally.

Constructing a blockade is NOT peaceably assembling.

If you don't like what's being said, DON'T GO AND LISTEN.  You weak, whiny, pussified snowflakes are so concerned with "hate speech" and "safe spaces" that you don't even recognize you're becoming the very definition of fascism.

Or maybe you do.

Serious as a heart attack, cupcake, read up on fascism in Italy during World War II, and elsewhere throughout history.  Spoiler Alert:  It doesn't end well for the fascists.
