Perhaps the most infamous villain of all time, Darth Vader’s character often sauntered across the stage in his long black robe and ethereal yet mechanical heavy breathing. For those of us old enough to remember seeing him for the first time on the big screen back in the summer of 1977, he was a terrifying and loathsome new kind of villain.
James Earl Jones’ deep baritone voice completed the nightmare of the scourge of the “galaxy far, far away.” He was absolutely tyrannical; with no redeeming likeability or compassion for anyone that stood in the way of his diabolical plan of universal domination by “the dark side.”
If we were to point to a real-life complement to the Vader character, we would have to look no further than to others wearing black robes and spouting ethereal “legal” heavy breathing. Truly, Darth Vader has spawned terrifying numbers of insidious offspring in the modern American judiciary.
February 16, 2017 marked another manifestation of “Vader’s children” when the Washington State Supreme Court told a 70 year-old grandmother that she was legally bound to betray her life-long faith and morals to obey a radical, left-wing sacrament of human depravity.
Barronelle Stutzman is a grandmother and flower shop owner from Washington who has been dragged through the mud and the legal system for a number of years now because her quiet faith stopped her from offering her blessings to the deluded fantasy ceremony desired by a couple of sexually confused men.
Now, the “men in black” on the court have ruled that she is a traitor to the highest phony virtue this generation’s far left has concocted – “tolerance.”
This is certainly not the first incidence of the “enlightened left” using the courts to repeat the new American version of “Kristallnacht” against anyone who dares stand in the way of their jihad to redefine sexuality for everyone in the world.
But, once again the “children of Vader” have struck back against the very American people who have made their lives of privilege possible.
This is perhaps the greatest threat to the future of freedom and representational self-rule in America – the arrogant, oligarchical judiciary that is inventing new law left and right in this country without the benefit of even one vote in any legislature.
For those who understand the Bill of Rights’ original intent, this is utter blasphemy. Those “inalienable rights” first described in the Declaration of Independence and later codified in the Constitution’s first 10 Amendments were purely instituted to protect the individual citizen’s rights (like Barronelle’s) from tyrannical governments of any level or branch.
But, no more! Now, it seems “Vader’s children” have seized power and the rest of us can just bow the knee at whatever altar they demand or we will be made slaves of culture and law.
This fascist onslaught has many causes. First, judges that are unelected and/or largely unaccountable have very few restraints that the rest of us citizens can rely upon to keep their rabid cravings for power and influence in check.
We have seen this several times now from SCOTUS over the past several decades. It is no wonder that state Supreme Courts have dealt with their “gavel envy” by acting equally draconian.
Sadly, there seem to be very few in any legislature with the “Constitutional testosterone” to stop this massive, illegal power grab. Impeachment is the check written into the law to put a stop to this obscenity, yet it has been a looooong time since we have even heard of any judge being removed from office by a supervising legislature.
A number of years ago in Iowa, three state Supreme Court judges were removed at the ballot box. But this was, sadly, an anomaly in modern America.
Part of this problem has to do with the fact that we no longer have “citizen legislatures” in America. We have the professional legal class dominating every state house and Washington by huge majorities. With that many lawyers running the show, is it any wonder at all that they have generally always voted to give themselves more and more power?
In the process, they have extorted, bribed, and cajoled wealthy business to fund their “search and destroy freedom” operations whenever and wherever possible.
This helps to describe the second problem with what is happening – what in the world are they teaching in law schools now days???
Somehow, I just don’t see Joseph Story, John Adams, John Jay, James Madison, George Mason, and Daniel Webster wanting to be anyway associated with what is coming out of American law schools today. This most recent ruling from Washington State proves my point. All of these learned Founding Fathers would be absolutely appalled at the notion that a citizen should be forced to betray her sincere faith (the same faith they all shared, by the way) in order to satisfy some dubious “social experiment.”
Nope. I don’t buy it for a moment that what is coming out of the courts right now has anything at all to do with the American tradition of law and justice. It is pure fascism, without a doubt.
If those who love America don’t put a stop to this and demand the genie of “judicial activism” be put back into its totalitarian bottle, we have no hope as a nation.
Ronald Reagan commented on America being a “shining city set on a hill” – quoting both the Bible and the Pilgrim fathers. His point was that America led the world in freedom and prosperity because of our commitment to the Constitution and its guaranteed, God-given rights.
Today, if we don’t want the “dark side” to overshadow that light and destroy our rights and freedoms, we must act to remove the “children of Vader” from all positions of influence and power. Additionally, we must enact fundamental change to our legal system to prevent the “spirit of Vader” from fathering any more spawn of darkness.
America is under full assault right now from a well-funded, determined force seeking to remold America into something completely unrecognizable and absolutely destructive.
If Americans don’t join “the rebel alliance” now and fight back with all the Constitutional tools at our disposal, this nation will create its own “evil empire.” And, it will be ruled by thousands of Darth Vaders in black robes running every life and tolerating no resistance whatsoever.
