Official Governor of New Hampshire, Acting Governor of Massachusetts, Christopher Sununu announced today that he is canceling his inauguration ceremony because of “armed protestors.”
If the presence of guns scare you, I seriously suggest that you get out of New Hampshire. In fact Massachusetts is a much better fit for Sununu based on his behavior over the past 10 months. Of course he seems to prefer to reap the benefits of a pro gun low tax state, while acting like a far left dictator. There have been protests every week for the past several weeks in the median in front of his house. There have been no physical altercations and no weapons have been brandished. Sununu brought up a trespass, and I don’t know whether or not he was informed of the details by the cops, but it was the absurd type of trespass that appears in extreme libertarian thought experiment hypos. That’s right, a person carelessly stepped one step onto the lockdown governor’s lawn, the horror.
While it is somewhat odd that the person who created the lockdown, still enforces operational- or non operational- restrictions on businesses, and encourages everyone to stay home is having an event in the first place, canceling it because a hand full of people don’t like you strikes me as a bitch move. Yes, people were armed. It’s New Hampshire; everyone is armed. It’s like pointing out that people were wearing shoes.
Sununu and others have taken issue with the fact that protests occurred in front of his house instead of at the closed Statehouse. Saying we shouldn’t attack him and his family. First of all, no one is attacking his children. They are too young to have culpability and they haven’t done anything. People are verbally attacking Sununu because he is a person who is doing things that are gratuitously harmful. He doesn’t have a private soul and a government official soul. He, the only him, put people out of work, shut down businesses, instituted unworkable restrictions for some on reopening, and issued 77 “Emergency Orders.” Sununu, the person, because there is no other Sununu, did not give a single care who’s family was effected or scared when he put them out of work or made it illegal for developing children to socialize. He just went ahead with the lockdown. Now people are angry at Sununu, the person, because there is no other Sununu. Many of them still have extra time on their hands from being underemployed. Having to see angry people is a very mild consequence for the action of instituting a lockdown.
