An America Michelle Obama Can Be Proud Of: Secret Service Dispatched on Obamakind's Unsubstantiated Allegation
Remember how people said if George Bush were elected all sorts of civil liberties would be usurped?
Exactly how many Bush dissenters died or were imprisoned (or even hassled) during the past eight years?
It can be very disappointing when someone you so thoroughly demonized doesn't act the part.
Well if Bush isn't going to keep the spirit of fascism alive in America, who will?
Who will lead those poor oppressed souls yearning for retribution against "THEM" for denying everyone's rightful daily bliss? Who will encourage the true believers to act out their rage against "THEM", because "WE" are for hope and change and therefore the ends justify the means?
I know that seems over the top, but today's news contains the story of a Texas woman who got a visit from the Secret Service based on a verbal accusation from an Obama campaign worker WITH NO EVIDENCE TO BACK UP THE ALLEGATION. Apparently the woman, who received an unsolicited call from the campaign worker, didn't show the proper deferrence to her betters in the campaign:
"She asked if I was an Obama supporter, to which I replied, 'No, I don't support him. Your guy is a socialist who voted four times in the state Senate to let little babies die in hospital closets; I think you should find something better to do with your time.' (And then) I hung up."
Hughes said she was surprised to see two Secret Service agents at her door, and upset to learn that the conversation she had with the volunteer apparently had not been recorded.
"I find it hard to believe that (campaign volunteers) don't tape these calls. They call people unsolicited and they aren't monitoring the calls or recording them? I think that is absolutely ridiculous," she said.
I shudder to think that in a few months we might be wishing for the 'kindler, gentler days' of Janet Reno...
If this were one isolated incident I would let it slide. But between the massive ACORN-led voter fraud (suppported with $800K of Obama Campaign money - hey, inner city minors were HOPING that someone would offer them some cigarettes or spare CHANGE if they would sign the voter roles), and the campaign-organized sabotage of unsympathetic media outlets, I think this demonstrates a larger pattern of disregard for the laws and principles that make America special.
A disregard for basic decency.
Obama hasn't decried any of this behavior. He actively incited some of it. He financially back other parts of it. The messages are not lost on the would-be brown shirts. It's okay to treat "THEM" as if they are not your equals. And that means laws don't protect "THEM". So if you need to bend or break laws to defeat "THEM", it's okay.
Michelle and Barack are proud of this version of America.
But I'm not. Nor are most people. So we'll do our actual patriotic duty and vote on November 4th. And I won't feel racist in the slightest when I mark my ballot for John McCain.
And unlike all those Hollywood hypocrites who say they'll move out of the country if their candidate loses, I'm staying either way. Unless Texas exercises its right to secede. Then I'm moving there, if for no other reason than to lobby the new secretary of the treasury to put George W. Bush on the 100 TD (Texas Dollars) bill. In no time his likeness will be all over the world as people trade their old inflation-battered USD for rock solid Texas Money!
Or not. We'll see...
