The New Age of Discrimination has nothing to do with race. It's simply about being in the minority. Since winning the presidency in 2008 Obama has gone out of his way to repeatedly remind us that "we won", "elections have consequences", and my favorite "I don't want the people who created the problem doing a lot of talking". To put it bluntly, we won so you need to sit down and shut up. You need to get out of our way and go sit in the back of the bus.
Love him or hate him, George W Bush endured eight years of some of the most vicious criticism ever levied against a president and his policies. He was
called everything from a war criminal, murder and utter moron. Accused of misleading us into war and planning 9/11. At no point during those eight
years did he directly attack his critics or question their right to speak out against him. On the contrary he often said that while he may not
agree with their point of view that what makes America great is our ability to speak out.
Do you remember how many times Bush blamed Clinton for 9/11? Of course you don't because he never did. Bush could have made an incredible case that
Clinton failed to get Bin Laden when he had the chance, that he gutted the CIA. On the contrary does a day go by that Obama or some member of congress doesn't remind us how they "inherited" all these problems.
So what is the point of constantly throwing out the "we inherited" line. The point is to shut you up. You were part of the group that caused
the problems we are now trying to clean up so just shut up and get out of our way. You see, your opinions don't matter anymore. We tried it your way
and it failed so now we're going to do it our way and we don't care what you think. If you continue to speak out we are going to smear and destroy you.
Don't believe me?
From Glenn Beck.com on the Tea Parties:
"They've been mocked and attacked from the beginning; called "tea baggers" and racists; they've been called violent and extreme ? despite any actual evidence.
The latest attack was when Nancy Pelosi and then members of the Black Caucus unnecessarily strolled directly through the "Kill the Bill" rally on March 20: They claimed the N-word was shouted 15 times and congressmen were spat on. Despite cameras rolling all over the place ? both media and individual ? there is zero proof that even one racial word was said and there is also no proof or evidence of any spitting. But it sure makes one great story, doesn't it? Andrew Breitbart has offered to donate $100,000 to the United Negro College Fund if anyone with actual evidence comes forward. So far there have been no takers."
On the Drudge Report:
Last month, in the heat of the health care battle, the administration tried to ban staffers from viewing DrudgeReport.com because of unspecified "virus activity" associated with the site. I go to Drudge every day ? never had a computer problem. The "warning" turned out to have "no factual basis."
This only scratches the surface of what is happening to silence dissent and control the message in this country. The next step is Net Neutrality
which thankfully an appeals court ruled is something the FCC cannot regulate without new powers from congress. This doesn't end the Net Neutrality
issue it just puts the pressure on congress to do something that Obama considers to be essential to his presidency.
Obama Embraces Net Neutrality, Plans to Hire National CTO
Do your own research on Net Neutrality and what exactly it aims to do but I don't believe we need to government to step in and regulate
the internet in order for it to remain free.
