Today is a highly publicized Day Without Immigrants to protest closing our borders to terrorist-exporting nations, and deporting illegal aliens.
Next month, some plan a Day Without Women.
So far today, a few upscale restaurants in liberal cities closed.
But Tudor's is open, so I don't care.
To be sure, hospitals, colleges, computer tech companies, and other important industries could suffer if their immigrant employees stayed home. But most of the people from other countries who work here are responsible people.
March 9 is a Day Without Women. Unionized nurses and elementary schoolteachers could affect hospitals and schools, but giving pupils a day off does not shut the country down.
Now, imagine a Day Without Men. Most people would find:
Better hope there is no fire. Your house will burn down.
Better hope there is no ice storm. Your power will not be back on until tomorrow.
Better hope there is no crime.
Better hope there is no car accident with injuries.
Better hope there is no prison riot.
Men do important work.
The reason the Left demonizes men is that the lefties want a totalitarian government, and the quickest way to a dictatorship is by tearing down the norms of society.
This is why the Left supports an invasion of illegal aliens.
A Day Without Immigrants And Women would be a nice gesture. But even if all the foreign-born doctors called in sick and all the women nurses and doctors called in sick, the hospitals would remain open.
A Day Without Men would shut them down.
Which is why there will never be a Day Without Men -- or a real Day Without Immigrants And Women -- because responsible people don't pull stunts like that.
Which is why they have responsibility.
