And I think the quote is taking itself too literally when tossed about in-character - hence why I oppose it. The first part is always true and good and right - the second part is hogwash and nonsense.

Yes, that's a good point to make - but the quote does not make it. I find that's quite clearly the case, but nonetheless, that's my opinion. Obviously, you don't share it, which is fine.

Maybe I should have added that I am opposed to the quotation as it is (actually), and as it is presented (actually), and as it is carried and meant (IMO); and nothing else. Because I most certainly support statements demanding that the government respects (to the utmost) the people that elected it. However, again, I want to stress I don't think this quotation, as it is in the movie, is supposed to mean that. At all.

Perhaps it meant it in the comic, which I haven't read - but as you pointed out, the movie is far too much about violence as that the phrase used therein could pass as what you describe. Again, IMO.
