    Maybe all judges aren't snowflakes after all.

    Virginia judge rules Confederate war monuments must remain


    https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/n...ts-must-remain
    A Virginia state judge has ruled the city of Charlottesville cannot move two Civil War statues that were at the center of the riots in 2017.

      But maaah heritage of hatred, is when the whining started. Nonetheless, this isn't a matter of being a snowflake or not. It's a matter of the law, regardless of where you stand on the issue. Apparently a state law prohibits the statues from being moved. So I guess the law would have to be repealed or altered before they could move it. Unfortunately the article didn't provide much information on exactly what the law says.

            Agreed. Their feelings are more important than anything else in the world.

              That is the bottom line.
              The Court can't rewrite the law or ignore it.
              The law is the product of the legislators who are elected by the voters.

              If the law is constitutional, it must be enforced as written.
              If the people want the law changed it is up to them, not the courts.

                Yes exactly. It's up to the people of that city.

                  Not to mention, their cause is always just and they are smarter than the rest-of-us.... Just ask one!

                    True, but not relevant to the law or this situation.

                      Sure it is. That smugness often turns into activism. That is the Left believes their positions are intelligently arrived at and thus must be acted upon so vandalism and destruction of property (illegally destroying or removing the statues in this case) is completely justified. Doesn't matter it's illegal. Doesn't matter if there's widespread dissent and opposition to their position.

                        What I meant was their greater intelligence doesn't give them high ground to circumvent the law. I see your point now though. Maybe there will be a few who try to do something illegal. But, I think for the most part they'll explore legal avenues. For those that don't, their higher intelligence is certainly no excuse for poor or illegal behavior.

                          Functionally, we have ample proof that their feelings do allow them to repeatedly circumvent the law.

                            What I meant was literal. They aren't smarter, and often are far more stupid. That incompetence leads them to believe that they are much more capable than they really are. That's why they often behave like they do.

                            That is, on the more far Left and Right you get this sort of effect frequently, only there's a much greater number of people on the far Left than far Right.
