To contravene authority

The only thing that can stand up to abusive authority is legitimate authority. 
The problem with the left is that it tries to contravene authority with pure legitimacy, after the authoritative voice has been silenced. Indeed it is the duty, perhaps the first duty, of legitimate authority to stand up to and oppose the abuse of authority by the acts of illegitimate authority or by legitimate authority's dereliction of duty.
