I know Im going to hear it from Lefties now: See how we felt under the BusHitler? Um, no, I dont. What werent you free to say? That Bush engineered 9/11 and murdered 3000 innocent civilians to start a war? That you wanted Bush and Cheney dead? That you wanted the Iraq War to fail? We cant even say we want Obama to fail without it being a federal case with talk of censorship!
Actually, more than talk.
Wouldnt be the first time. What have we come to, when freedom-championing Liberal Democrats pass petitions around in Congress to shut up the most popular radio talk show host in America? One thing it definitely says: The Old Patriotism is out, and the New Patriotism is in.
Talk of shutting up Rush, even from the White House. Sorry. We had to deal with Air America, KOS and HuffPo. Your turn. And I really hate sore winners who try to change the rules in mid-game. Like issuing a national security report that covers the opposition partys entire platform, and is so vague we can even be snitched out to the police for political thought. Sound familiar?
This DHS report doesnt quell paranoia. It fuels it. And it aint paranoia when every law enforcement agency in the country now has DHS guidelines on Right Wing Extremism so broad, individuals who oppose abortion, illegal immigration, even the federal government itself, are suspect.
Its one thing for Hillary Clinton to call us a Vast Right Wing Conspiracy out of spite. Quite another for the Department of Homeland Security to do so officially on paper.
Im getting a very creepy feeling, people. Its like the government, the press, and the freedom-championing American Left, who now rule supreme, see their big chance and are now looking to silence the Right once and for all through ridicule, demonization, even intimidation through official government reports to law enforcement.
Unnamed individuals with views that dont adhere to the present governments on abortion, illegal immigration, even the Second and Tenth Amendments to the Constitution, are called out in the DHS report. Makes me wonder who the real extremists are here.
In short, dissent is now unpatriotic. Tea Parties are being falsely linked to White Supremacy and neo-Nazi groups by both the press and Members of Congress. Public demonstrations against high taxes and spending, which reporters ridicule and call anti-government. A member of the press calling a peaceful public protest anti-government while spouting government policy?
What have we come to as a nation?
Good question. Im keeping my eyes peeled, people. You should too. For any more government issue insanity like DHS Right Wing Extremism report which, though not as severe as Hitlers Night and Fog Decree, is just about as broad. Or the Fairness Doctrine, which is less fairness and more doctrine, and could even regulate web content. Just like Iran and China do. Feeling better now?
And thats just on top of their usual insanity.
I can at least take comfort that the outrageous DHS report on Right Wing Extremism has made strange bedfellows of Michelle Malkin and Rolling Stone. Hope Springs Eternal. And to all reasonable Lefties everywhere (I know there are a few), please stop asking us why we werent protesting this stuff for eight years, and just look at why the hell were protesting it now, okay?
Our bad! You happy? Actually, I better watch it now. I already have one strike against me.
Im a Vet, you see. I could go either way.
Actually, I will go one step further. President Obama, liberal Democrats and non-extremist left wingers (I know there are a few) need to grow much thicker skins politically, before they start drifting into dangerous political waters themselves. Bush didnt give one hoot about Michael Moore, Al Franken or Air America, even when Randy Rhodes simulated his assassination on the air.
Yet Rush seems as dug under the collar of President Obama, Rahm Emmanuel, liberal Democrats and Lefties as a bloodthirsty tick. Sorry, but Bush had his ticks, too. They all did. Every last POTUS there ever was. Goes with the territory. Its called free speech and democracy. Deal with it.
You have a lot more important business to attend to than Rush Limbaugh and Tea Parties. Besides, even if you did manage to get Rush off the air, think of all the tax revenue youd lose. Not very smart.
And could sombody please tell CNNs Susan Roesgen to either report the news or get the hell off the air? We already know what the governments position is. Thats why were OUT there!
Peter Maas you aint, lady.
