Conservative writer and frequent Fox News guest Erik Rush is so completely off the deep end that we really aren’t all that surprised by his latest column where he suggests that the Founders would have hanged President Obama and that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid “deserves” to be dragged behind a truck. This time, Rush is upset about the fiscal cliff negotiations and the possibility of new gun laws which he warns are both part of a global plot by Marxists, corporations and bankers to destroy America.
The pretense of the ongoing “fiscal cliff” negotiations (this term itself having been coined by Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, a big-government economist from academia) are one of the more poignant examples of this ruse. As the machinations of the Obama administration (punctuated by the President’s smug self-assuredness) and the impotent Republican leadership are given center stage, the hows and whys of our arrival here are not being discussed at all. Senate Majority Leader Harry “I-so-deserve-to-be-dragged-behind-a-pickup-truck” Reid likens House Speaker John Boehner to a “dictator,” and the surreal character of this utterance in the face of America’s current predicament should be what the press is covering, but they’re operating in a slightly different modality right now.
This week, I heard a conservative radio commentator refer to liberals with gun control sentiments that were “perhaps well-intended.” I was mortified. The stark reality is staring us in the face: We are under the yoke of evil men who intend to enslave us, and one of the few barriers left to them is the Second Amendment. There is no more room for the naïveté of the “well-intended.”
Black Americans, who should be among the most ardent supporters of gun rights, have fallen into mind-numbing lockstep with their liberal overseers. Following the school massacre in Connecticut on December 14, vapid black entertainers, career activists, and tranquilized black masses climbed aboard the Obama administration’s Gun Control Express without hesitation. Last week, the ever-odious societal parasite Rev. Al Sharpton announced his plans to protest the National Rifle Association in support of stronger gun control laws.
The elephant (or the communist, if you prefer) in the room behind all of the machinations I have described is that the federal government, already grown to Cyclopean proportions over the last hundred years by self-seeking narcissists, is under the control of abject radical Marxists and a kitchen cabinet of global socialists and crony corporate and banking interests intent upon transforming the very globe into a sterile dystopia.
For years, Americans have accepted the dictates of fiat regulatory agencies fabricated by our presidents, which have no constitutional authority to regulate anything. These have done little more than stultify the economy, attenuate our liberties, and bleed taxpayer resources under the pretext of operating for our own good. New federal regulations – recently called “illegal and unconstitutional” by veteran commentator Charles Krauthammer – are hitting the books every week; they all threaten to further cripple the economy, and indeed are calculated to do so, yet, when the axe falls, most Americans won’t even know that they were a factor. Using these regulations, an army of czars, and the instrument of the Executive Order, Barack Obama has become a veritable dictator.
This isn’t a time for discretion, subtlety, or conciliation. It is a time for calling out our government for what it is, and – as the Founders of our nation did – disengage from those who are too stupid or cowardly to resist slavery. Few in Congress, Democrat or Republican, and likely none of the current administration would escape hanging were America’s founders on the scene at present.
