Too big to criticize
By Michael Moriarty
"Too big to fail" will inevitably lead to the crushing policies of "too big to criticize".
Already the President is dancing around such a formula in his Spring appearances for college graduations, speaking of his political opposition as the mere noise and distractions of an overly i-podded, i-this and i-that civilization which can and, inferentially perhaps, will be quieted.
One of the things the Obama Nation – upon entering the Oval Office as its, God willing, temporary occupant – had instantly declared was too big to criticize is Islam.
Remember all the euphemisms floating out of the White House, those "teachable moments" to enlighten us about how the Muslim World was not only above criticism but actually so big that the President of the United States must bow to it?
That, of course, and the same deference to Red China, the Big Bow of the Tall President before the Short Poo-Bah of Communism?
Now, by God, thanks to the Would-be Bomber of Times Square, there really is a thing called "terrorism".
That was magical, wasn't it, getting Attorney General Eric Holder to admit to something like that?
We all thought the major television networks and CNN were too big to fail but, gee … gosh … Fox News is leaving them all so far back in the dust of Fox Ratings that … well … "too big to fail" is beginning to look like "too big to be criticized"!
America has been, is and always will be a right-of-center nation!
When will the rest of the world, including the Obama nation, wake up to that?
Americans are still aware that individual freedom demands individual responsibility.
The Progressive Movement's desire to take away individual responsibility is the first step in its game plan to eventually destroy individual freedom.
Look what our possibly new member of the Supreme Court, Elena Kagan, has to say about freedom of speech:
"Whether a given category of speech enjoys First Amendment protection depends upon a categorical balancing of the value of the speech against its societal costs."
"Societal costs" for criticizing government?
This perspective sells censorship and an increasing loss of individual freedom.
Between the euphemisms that deny we are at war with Islamo-Fascism, phrases such as "man-made disaster" for what has happened this year in New York, Detroit and Ft. Hood, Texas, and the Progressive Push on the Supreme Court to balance "the value of the speech against its societal costs", America, increasingly trapped within the closing fist of the Obama Nation, faces the price that had always been inherent in the Supreme Court's Roe v Wade Decision.
Yes, the virtual license to murder inherent within legalized abortion.
How protected can free speech possibly be when we have, for 37 years, officially supported legalized homicide?
It is no wonder, with the insurance of relatively cost-free sexual freedom, that the real price for the Roe v Wade quick-fix would turn out to be our increasing loss of individual freedom?
In America the price for individual freedom has always been individual responsibility.
If we are allowed by the government to murder our own gestating infants, what bill-for-services-rendered did the fools who bought that something-for-nothing think the government would deliver to our doorstep?
A card saying "Enjoy!" and nothing more?
The Progressive New World Order wants control of our tongues!
And our minds!!
And they think no differently than Hitler, Stalin or Mao have thought.
They are absolutely certain that they know better than we do!
They must be!
They're Harvard graduates!!
America was built upon our Founding Fathers' acts and documents of faith in the human individual. They had no herd mentality about freedom.
Neither were they elitists, looking down upon the average American.
No matter what you wish to call the American Progressive Movement and its dream of a New World Order, the terms within its vision are a combination of the worst ingredients within both sides of tyranny, Left or Right.
Both are Elitist views from which to look down upon the entire human race, including their fellow Communists and Nazis.
Voltaire branded their ilk the "enlightened despots".
The level of diabolical agreement between the Third Millennium, Red Nazis and their eugenics plans for the future, yes, the merger between the elitists of American Capitalism and World Communism is now fixed permanently in the tyrannical visions of a New World Order.
If Americans do not wake up to the deal they have cut with the Progressive New World Order, their freedom for the right to butcher gestating infants, then all efforts, including those of Glenn Beck, to escape the intended, vice-like grip of elitist tyranny will fail.
Until Roe v Wade is being overturned by Americans, God will watch silently as the Progressive New World Order overturns America.
