The ease with which so many in our country can be duped by the blatantly absurd never ceases to amaze me. For one thing, if there’s one characteristic that Bill Clinton is known for, more than any other… it’s lying through his teeth. And yet we still have people who persist in fawning over how we can “tell” that he “honestly cares”, after that speech of his at the DNC.
Speaking of the Democrats, we have Debbie Wasserman Shultz swearing up and down that there was no real discord over their platform problems with God and Jerusalem. (To his credit, Anderson Cooper noted that the woman seems to exist in an alternate universe….) FactCheck.org and the Washington Post both take Obama to task for this constant barrage of nonsense to the effect that Mitt Romney will somehow raise your taxes by $2000, while Obama will cut them by $3600. (If you’ve been on YouTube lately, you know exactly what I’m talking about.) It’s ridiculous… but apparently, the truth is falling on deaf ears.
People believe it, because no one would dare say all of that if it weren’t true. At least, I’m pretty sure that’s the explanation for Obama being so close, actually leading in some polls. Another contributing factor could well be all the Revolutionaries who left the Ron Paul rally at my university going, “I don’t care if it means handing the country to Obama for another four years, thereby potentially wrecking our economy for a very long time and curbing our liberties like you wouldn’t believe — I will not vote for Mitt “Lesser-of-two-evils” Romney under any circumstances whatsoever!!!” Never mind that Ron’s own son, Rand, whom he’s been handing the torch to as his successor, thinks otherwise. But I digress….
Anyway, this week seems to have quite a few more examples of the gullibility, at the very least, of the current administration and the “mainstream” press. Let me ask you this, folks: does anyone honestly believe… for a moment… that all the riots breaking out in the Muslim world right now were caused by a hodgepodge, cheap, barely-heard-of, asinine internet movie?
Really, if that’s what it’s all about, it means simply this: the rioters are a bunch of immature, overgrown four-year-olds that make the Occupiers look like cultured, refined ladies and gentlemen. (Quite a difficult thing to do, I admit….) After all, remember the notorious image of the crucified Christ in a jar of “Number One”? I could give a long list of smug, self-righteous “artists” who deliberately insulted Christianity— and yet you never see anything like this on our end! But how dare anyone dream of insulting Islam? Let’s form violent mobs, storm embassies, obliterate KFC and Hardee’s, kill ambassadors and Navy SEALs, and generally give evil American imperialists the what-for!
No… you don’t buy it, any more than I do. And yet this current administration seems willing to buy it, and walk on eggshells so as not to appear “Islamophobic”. (Note: the sooner we finally indict CAIR for their constant role in sanctioning terrorism, thereby getting that Islamist mafia out of the control room of political correctness— the better!)
Mitt Romney isn’t buying it, and is calling out both the rioters and the president. To be blunt, the governor looked, sounded, and acted more presidential than Obama did, this week. And yet, now we have the press ganging up on him, colluding with series of question on whether or not he regrets his “preemptive” timing. Meanwhile, Obama gets away with snubbing Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu, so he can go discuss important issues with David Letterman and “The Pimp with a Limp” (I swear).
Look, let’s be perfectly honest, here. The madness of this week involves the eleventh anniversary of 9/11, number one. Number two, it magnifies the weakness our enemies in the world see in us, with the policies of appeasement— I’m sorry, outreach— constantly pursued by President Obama. From constantly giving the Muslim Brotherhood the benefit of the doubt, to going back-and-forth on Jerusalem policy, to turning a blind eye to the truly freedom-loving rebels in Iran while pushing for the toppling of Mubarak— the fallacies of Obama’s foreign policy should be apparent for everyone to see.
Is it? Well… we’ll see in November.
