Picking and Choosing
A Phoenix woman accused of throwing a shoe at Hillary Rodham Clinton during a speech in Las Vegas remains in federal custody after pleading not guilty to two criminal charges. Alison Ernst, 36, entered the pleas to misdemeanor counts of trespassing and violence against a person during her arraignment late Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas.
If Ernst is convicted of both federal charges, she could face up to two years in federal prison and the possibility that federal authorities would be able to monitor her movements under terms of supervised release.
I’ve yet to discover a clear reason given why Ms. Ernst did it, but depend upon the authorities to make it a case of mental instability. There’s plenty to dislike about Hillary, but of course anyone who goes so far as Ms. Ernst MUST need psychological help. Since they might have difficult time proving insanity and committing her to brainwashing, the last part of this piece is what concerns me most.
In the end, after the prospective psychological treatments for “Hillarophobia” and the prison term, she’ll look forward to being a ward of the state for the rest of her life. In her case, if there was ever a point to dissent against Hillary and her kind, it wasn’t then. For her, the war is over before the battle begins. It serves to remind us of picking and choosing our battles wisely. The measured action of the righteous in their pointed indignation will achieve an effect similar to the popping of a balloon with a pin. Actions like Ms. Ernst will deplete forces needed for victory. That is why there is an undercurrent of people forming a hidden groundswell waiting for that one event when the evil crosses the line to touch off mobilization. Fort Sumpter was such a line. Where it is or how it comes about we shall see.
