Leftist Interpretation Of Declaration Of Independence

Good friend in the ether, Bob Belvedere brings us this latest example of leftist asshattery;

 

One of the low-level apparatchiks of the Left In America has apparently suffered a momentarty loss of self-control and revealed exactly how the Left views freedom and liberty…

From Warner Todd Huston, we learn [tip of the fedora to John Palmer (aka: )]:

In the interview, [Illinois State Representative Sara] Feigenholtz, a Chicago Democrat in the 12th District, announced her intention to “give rights” to the gay community in Illinois and felt that this “giving” of rights was one of the most important jobs of elected officials.

“For me, the most precious thing I do as a lawmaker is giving people rights,” Feigenholtz said. “We have a powerful opportunity as elected officials to do this.”

Hmm, that’s a new one on me, that the government can infer certain rights. Bob gives us the preamble to the Declaration;
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. —That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, —That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
After which Bob gives us the Leftist version…or at least what they wish it was;
We hold these relative truths to be self-imposed, that all men, women, and transgendereds are created equal, that they are endowed by their State with certain malleable Rights, that among these are Freedom From Want, Free Medical Care, and the guarantee of Happiness. —That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted as overlords of Men, Women, and Transgendereds, deriving their just powers from the whims and Utopian visions of the Masterminds, —That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it using muskets only, and to then be institutionalized by the Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to the State shall seem most likely to effect the Safety and Happiness of the bureaucrats and The Illuminated Ones.
Bob explains it as Ideological Dyslexia and gives the definition of the dreaded affliction from the Oxford Shoe English Dictionary;
n. A learning disorder marked by impairment of the ability to recognize and comprehend Reality; an impairment of the ability to grasp Truth because of a brain defect. Also called alecxia when speaking of one of the Baldwin Brothers.
