How dare you ….. presume to know me ?
How dare you block streets and highways — which we all use — for your own selfish grievance ?
How dare you break the law and then try to justify it by pointing to some other breaking of the law ? What-about-ism ain’t a good look.
How dare you presume upon taxpayers’ money for your project that you cannot afford ?
How dare you, indeed.
How dare you presume which opinions merit being cancelled ? Who made you the judge of anyone else’s conscience ? Be careful that your opinion isn’t canceled next.
How dare you call for boycotting ? Do you not realize that a boycott hurts only the ordinary stiffs ?
How dare you invade somebody else’s personal space ? In restaurants. At their homes — sometimes at 6 am ? Do you not realize that violating people’s space is a good way to make them a sworn enemy of you and your smelly little orthodoxy ?
How dare you call yourself a queen ? A king ? America doesn’t have queens or kings. (gay slang excepted)
How dare you not be humble ?
How dare you not obey the Rule of Hillel the Elder : “whatever is hateful to thee, do not do to your fellow man. This is the whole Torah, the rest is explanation.”
How dare you oppose racism with racism ?
How dare you trample upon somebody else’s grass ? Green, or spiritual, all grass matters.
How dare you scream “f**k the police” and then call for police assistance when your own pride is invaded ?
How dare you judge anyone — anyone, and I do mean anyone — guilty on account of viral videos that always tell only part of the story ?
How dare you not honor the jury trial system ? It’;s in the Constitution !
How dare you swear to uphold and defend the Constitution, against ALL enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC, and then not do so ? Even support those who violate it ? how dare you do that ?
How dare you say “very fine people on both sides”when in fact there are few fine people on either side of a shitshow ?
How do you carry a rifle into a shitshow and not expect to get shat on? How dare you ?
How dare you not ask the question of yourself : how dare I ?
Answer every one of these questions humbly and without knowing that you are always fright — because chances are you are rarely right, and when you are right, you probably won’t realize it and might even think yourself wrong. Answer them before you set this column aside. You may even thank me.
