Red Flag laws are used to disarm people who another person claims could be dangerous to themselves and/or others. The Red Flag law process begins when a law enforcement official, family member, or household member petitions a state court to temporarily remove firearms from someone they believe to be a danger to themselves or others. In some states, the list of eligible petitioners can include school officials, health care workers, or even coworkers! A judge can issue a warrant allowing law enforcement officials to search the accused’s property and confiscate weapons, sometimes without any prior notice.
This law is in direct conflict with the Constitution of the United States. In a democracy, it is lawful because the majority or those in power deemed it appropriate. In a republic the supreme law of the land or the Constitution protect the due process rights of the individual.
This type of hunch, or “get you” laws that deny individual liberties have a history.
China launched a hotline recently to target online comments that defame the ruling Chinese Communist Party or question its account of history. This program allows internet users to report on others who spread "mistaken opinions" online in order to create a "good public opinion atmosphere," the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC) said in a notice.
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is now paying citizens of Communist China to spy on each other, offering rewards of more than 100,000 yuan ($15,000) for tips on national security breaches.
In 1933, the Nazis issued a decree that required Germans to turn in anyone who spoke against the party, its leaders, or the government That decree, “For the Defense against Malicious Attacks against the Government,” stated:
Whoever purposely makes or circulates a statement of a factual nature which is untrue or grossly exaggerated or which may seriously harm the welfare of the Reich or of a state, or the reputation of the National government or of a state government or of parties or organizations supporting these governments, is to be punished, provided that no more severe punishment is decreed in other regulations, with imprisonment of up to two years and, if he makes or spreads the statement publicly, with imprisonment of not less than three months.
Stalin’s Soviet Union
Stalin set about building a new universe, in which every old loyalty to kin, friends, colleagues was extinguished and replaced by one fealty alone - to "The People", of whose interests he was sole arbiter. To justify oppression and savagery, the State needed enemies. If they did not exist, they had to be invented, through a system of informers which eventually embraced at least one in ten of Russia's citizens.
"The mildest and at the same time the most widespread form of betrayal was not to do anything directly," in the words of the great writer Alexander Solzhenitsyn, "but just not to notice the doomed person next to one."
"They had arrested a neighbor, your comrade at work, or even your close friend. You kept silence. You acted as if you had not noticed."
Every apartment block, every village, every collective, every factory had its corps of official informers who, to justify their existence and often to survive themselves, needed a steady flow of denunciations. The victims often had no clue what "crime" they had committed. They were merely shipped to the Gulag, where they slaved until hunger, disease or execution ended their sufferings.
And now we come to the Democrats United States of America. Red Flag Laws, enemies of the people, racists, White Supremacists, insurgents, are no longer protected by the United States Constitution because the majority or those in power proclaim the danger to be greater than the need to protect the liberties of each individual. The Democrats are transforming our republic to a democracy which is what China has, and Germany and Russia had. Welcome to the world of democracy.
