Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall…

If you’re looking for a safe bet these days…here’s one.

I bet none of your Progressive friends or mine are reading the excerpts from Journo-list being exposed on the Daily Caller.

I know why too. Because they like the RESULTS of having a vitriolic, devious partisan Elite Media…but none of them want to be burdened by the details. Kind of like the old gangster movies…”Just get it done, but don’t tell me how.”

Today’s Progressives want no debate and brook no contrary discourse. They want an imposition of thought, a forced acceptance of their viewpoint. Today’s Left is extremely intolerant…and yet…tolerant at the same time.

How? Well, because they are deadly “intolerant” of any mind not in lockstep with their metanarrative…they must then be “tolerant” of tactics that might otherwise seem unseemly. For example, on Journo-list…Dean Baker argues for the merits of ignoring Obama’s dishonesty in this post:

“Dean Baker, at the time a blogger at the American Prospect, agreed the policy was dishonest, but defended it anyway. “Sure, some of the things they are saying are not true (the jobs story first and foremost),” he wrote, “but the industry groups have this town blanketed with lobbyists and own a large portion of Congress outright. … There has to be some counter-force to the industry groups and that is the populist rabble. It might not be pretty, but that’s Washington.”

In other words. let’s lie when we have to, and support lies when we must…and blame the Other because…”the devil made me do it.”

Therefore…Obama has been allowed to lie about the cost and consequences of many of his programs. For example, he has lied about the Health Care Bill. But the progressive Media Elite allow this because because Progressives can not tolerate the very people that Bill is to be IMPOSED upon…that would be the “populist rabble”…having any truth, knowledge or input into their own fate.

THEY WANT WHAT THEY WANT.

End of story.

Likewise, Progressive Climate scientists must “hide the decline” because climate science has now taken on religiosity that must be believed, accepted on Progressive Faith, and…certainly not scientifically proven.

Progressives understand these positions are lies…but in the arrogance of the Left, anything can be excused to achieve THEIR objective. Americans must come to understand this about Obama and his Progressive backers. They are not engaged with us…they intend to deceive and IMPOSE their WILL upon us…because of the confidence they have that they are superior to us.

There have been other regimes like this many times in History.

Our Progressive media is welling to lie to keep a Progressive President in office…to impose his agenda on the public that they will deliberately keep unaware. The MSM no longer exists to inform the public and encourage our participation…they exist to confound and convert the public to the view of the Leftist state. They are not “watchdogs” in our interest…they are “attack dogs” for this administration.

If lies don’t work…some suggest fear to silence debate.

Fear.

Please understand…making other Americans FEARFUL to disagree.

In this article today…we find this example:

“While Journolist members were discussing strategies for suppressing news about Obama’s America-bashing pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr., during the presidential campaign, Spencer Ackerman, then of the Washington Independent and now of Wired magazine, suggested this:

“It’s not necessary to jump to Wright-qua-Wright’s defense. What is necessary is to raise the cost on the right of going after the left. In other words, find a rightwinger’s [sic] and smash it through a plate-glass window. Take a snapshot of the bleeding mess and send it out in a Christmas card to let the right know that it needs to live in a state of constant fear. Obviously I mean this rhetorically.”

Oh, “rhetorical fear?”

Oh.

But fear none the less. The objective remains to make anyone with a dissenting thought hesitant to speak against Obama and the State.

Or vote…

Yes, and of course, Black Panthers at a polling place fit this scenario. The spin is that their presence never kept one single soul from voting. But, how do they know? Does that even make sense? Eric Holder and the Progressive Media Elites would have us believe that we all enjoy pushing past Thugs with clubs yelling racist epithets to assert our citizen’s rights. Especially if we must live in the neighborhood and attend street fairs where the same Black Panthers are screaming about the necessity to kill white children.

Obama sees no obstacle any single person in this. Imagine that!

Perhaps the polling places will be proliferated with “benign” paramilitary thugs in November. (Hey, no biggie! As long as they aren’t White keeping Black Dems away.)

Progressives would never stand for that. They have their principles.

Progressives are also comfortable with the Random Smear too. This is the flip-side of the Necessary Lie. It’s the Ultimate PC Silencer. If you try to oppose their programs or ideas…prepare for decimating personal attack. Truth being no detriment.

On Journo-list…other discussions concerned choosing someone, anyone on the Right and smearing them across the MSM as “racist”…once again blase about the damage such a lie might do to a real person or his real Family.

Day after day, we see Obama and his Progressive administration deceiving us about racial quotas put surreptitiously into Financial Reform Bills…deceiving us about costs, deceiving us about new taxes and burdensome job-killing paper-work to come.

But what alarms me the most is the Boot-on-the-Neck of Debate.

How far will they take it?

Progressives have embraced dishonesty, fear, and random smear to advance their objectives. Progressives have convinced themselves that anyone who disagrees has no right to be heard. no right to be treated fairly, no freedom from fear or freedom from the tactics of personal destruction.

All for our own good , of course.

Our Progressive friends shrug and look away. They WANT WHAT THEY WANT…and apparently, along with Obama…will support stripping others of THEIR rights to get there. They style themselves as the People of Empathy…but the rest of us must educate ourselves to where that empathy stops. They will lie to you and about you. They will condone smear and fear to keep you in your Box. They have no empathy for my right to my opinion , or my right as a citizen to debate theirs. In their arrogance of having every answer, they turn a blind eye to the most blatant abuses of MY freedoms. Progressives are the party of intolerance and imposition.

And, somehow, as they do this…they look at the Tea Party and conjure up “Brown Shirts.”

Ironic, isn’t it?

Maybe it’s the cosmic mirror of history trying to show them what they have become.

Billboards

For our South Carolina gathering, two couples had a long drive south and one couple had a long drive north from Florida. Conversation one night turned to billboards. Our Florida friends had seen billboards along the way saying: “Government Dependency: YOUR legacy, Mr. President.” They asked if we had seen them as well.

We hadn’t. But we had seen other anti-Obama billboards. For example, driving through West Virginia, we saw several signs saying, “Don’t let Obama’s EPA kill our coal jobs.” I wonder if West Virginians are looking at the closed oil rigs in the Gulf and the plight of all the families affected…and realizing that one day soon..they themselves may well lie beyond the political pity-scope or selective sympathy of Obama and his Leftist elitist eco-crowd.

“Selective”…being the operative word. “Divisive”….being the only possible legacy of that pick-and-choose mentality.

Obama is an incredibly divisive President….simply because he MUST style himself as such. The Leftist metanarrative requires villains, and far too many hard-working Americans are now “enemies” of the Obama administration. If you work for an insurance company, an oil company, the Banking industry, or you run a small business that brings in more than $250,000 a year, you are complicit in denigrating some other… lesser but more worthy… part of our citizenry. Obama has succeeded in making hard work, self-reliance, and individualism …unattractive qualities.

Unions have always looked askance at the worker who overachieves and therefore puts a burden of productivity on his co-workers…or the teacher who might arrive too early or stay too late to help students. Unions want a conformity of mediocrity, a tilt down to the easiest attainable effort…so an overachiever is a problem to his co-workers, not an asset. Now, so it seems, our federal Government has adopted the same mentality. The Obama administration is in the business of punishing with taxes those who over-achieve.The best and brightest are “show-offs”…the most successful must have the fruit of their efforts siphoned off from their families…to prop up the Perpetually Dependent. Obama is interested in spreading the wealth around…punishing excellence and effort. To this end, he must nurture “victimization” and class warfare.

Who are the least among us? The most worthy are the easiest to identify. In those cases, there is little argument about contributing to a safety net or a step up. The problem lies in the murkier designations…the ones Obama and his ilk get to select from their personal sensibilities. They nominate THEMSELVES to choose and enforce the criteria. It is long past time when children of Black doctors and judges and businessmen can trump poor white children of Appalachia in college entry selection and job quotas. It is long past time when Black thugs at polling places receive a judicial Mulligan because our Black AG must placate the NAACP.

In that very real way, Obama’s America is not one of Equal Opportunity but “Selective” Opportunity.

Obama ”’SELECTS.

The new Banking Bill has quotas for certain genders and skin hues in a time of recession…because Obama considers certain Previously Oppressed worthy of their private TAXPAYER FUNDED “Road to Success”…but not the children of dirt-poor coal-miners….or poverty level white farmers. It is long past time…but the Obama administration is most concerned with…. “long past due.” We have entered the Era of Presidential Payback. Obama is articulating at every opportunity who are the Enemies of the People.

That means, by default, only certain Americans are HIS people. He messages victimhood to certain groups…and massages their desire to be “avenged.”

The Unions, the Leftists, the Feminists, “Wise Latinas”, “People of Color”, Academics, the Quota Crowd, those who are protected by “civil rights” laws vs. those to whom those laws now offer no protection.

The rest of us…are left behind. Make ’em pay.

Obama’s legacy is division. He travels the country preaching a doctrine that turns neighbor against neighbor…labor against business…race against race. He needs to ferment ill will to further his political purposes. Just as hate kept the coffers over-flowing to his mentor Reverend Wright who would retire to a million dollar home in a gated community…Obama hopes hate and division will keep the polling places over-flowing so he can continue to ensconce himself in that white Mansion in D.C.

But polls show, the American people are starting to see the light. It is not emanating from the false Messiah of the Leftist metanarrative. It’s coming from those in white, black, brown, and yellow communities who have come too far on the road to Brotherhood to let a Divisive Political Hack hold them in Partisan Boxes…that suit his political need.

It’s coming from Americans who need a pay-check, not pay-back. Americans who need American Businesses to flourish not an Obama boot-heel-on-the-Neck to punish. Americans who are smarter than our over-educated but under-experienced “Community Organizer in Chief” who seems to think he can “organize” all of the diverse areas of our United States with the “motivational rhetoric” that worked for him in inner-city Chicago.

Obama is only hearing the voices that tell him what he wants to hear. He needs to quiet his divisive partisan message and listen and look around.

Simon and Garfunkel wrote in the Sixties…”The words of the Prophets are written on the subway walls.”

Yes indeed.

Today they are written on billboards along American highways.

Listen to the Sounds of Silence, Mr. President.

Hold the Budweiser; this is Too Big.

If I were inclined to give some Motherly advice to Barack Obama…I’d tell him to get out in front of this Black Panther-DOJ mess and do it definitively.

Put out the reasonable definitive explanation for why the case was dismissed, if there is one. If there is another side and a strong one…this dismissal must be easily defensible. The fact that the Administration continues to avoid addressing this, adds to the aura that something unseemly is afoot.

When you have a strong defense, you are eager to articulate it. When you have a strong defense, you strut right into any accusation with almost enjoyment.

So why are they not doing this?

Obama campaigned on being a new kind of politician; he also campaigned on being post-racial. Those two issues resonated with most Americans across both parties. We are sick, our Nation is sick, our Economy is sick from incessant and increasingly intolerant partisan squabbles. Furthermore, many have come to despise the Race Pimps and Professional PC Victims who make a buck by buttressing discord and division. The election of Obama brought hope…even to those of us who did not support him….that at the least…maybe just the latter would be our consolation prize.

Time has shown Obama to be just a standard issue Leftist politician whose every decision seems to be determined by polls and party dynamics. Well, many marry the Championship Football Captain, and find a pot-bellied Lump of Inertia parked weekly in front of the TV. We get over it.

So as the Blago trial unfolds and details emerge about Who Was Asked to Exit What Campaign, Americans understand they have no new enlightened mindset in the Oval Office. Many are neither surprised nor outraged; they hoped but did not expect it to be so. Many have no great issue, except hypocrisy,with Obama on that score.

But many ARE incensed by this Black Panther dismissal and even more so, by the arrogance of the Obama/ Holder non-response. They are also stunned that an Administration that rushed to hold a Beer Summit to quell any racial uneasiness that might be seeping into voter consciousness…is letting this much more potent issue remain unexplained. There were no U-tube videos of the Harvard Professor that Obama championed saying he “might hafta kill white Babies.”

Why would this most politically sensitive White House…not stand and defend WITH FACT…this issue?

That is…if they can.

We are left to surmise the defense shows the tears and frays in some part of the NEW Politician Pant Suit …that Obama’s still trying to strut about in. So he assumes it’s the lesser of two evils to dodge and play dumb.

At least that’s one of the better assumptions.

Is Obama truly a new breed Post Partisan Politician? If anyone is still clinging to that dream, the fact that this dismissal was a political payback to the NAACP might be something Obama and Holder simply can’t admit. The NAACP has admitted inserting themselves in the case. (Read info here) Was the dismissal of this case against Thugs who were already CONVICTED and are on record threatening to kill Whites…political grease to the NAACP from a grateful Obama? And what does it say about today’s NAACP that these Black racists are worthy of their organizational intervention? Of course, for a brief lesson in the current operational tactics of this once worthy organization, read the history of their complicity in the Duke Lacrosse Frame. They have now assumed the judicial posture of the Fat-Pot-Bellied Sheriffs of the Old South:skin hue, not truth, guilt or innocence….only SKIN HUE is SUPREME.

Or was this unexplained dismissal simply an indicator of a racist mindset now installed by Obama/Holder at DOJ? Are Americans to understand that the professed “post=racial” Obama is instead codifying different rules for different races? Is Obama taking the racial divisiveness he ran against and allowing the DOJ to see COLOR over the content of any particular case?

A compliant Media may be mostly avoiding this case but they cannot contain it. Obama should realize this is not only dangerous to him politically, it is dangerous to the American psyche.

And deadly to our system of justice.

Do Obama and Holder assume that White Guilt will gut this story for them? Is that the real arrogance and lassitude behind the lame non-response?

Obama, the eloquent Great Communicator, and Holder need to justify the actions of their DOJ. If they have a detailed explanation, let’s hear in full in hearings, all hands on deck.

No Beer Summit between Mr. Adams and Mr. White Baby Killer Wannabee is going to quell this story.
