If you’ve been scratching your head wondering just what the hell this administration is doing, I think you had better start wearing a hat before you give yourself brain damage.
In a week of stunning cluelessness, our government has strung together three haymakers, once again utterly baffling right-thinking Americans across the fruited plain. Right-thinking Americans who want to stay alive, that is.
Let’s do this in no particular order. First the left hook: The President and his crew have decided that a symbol synonomous with the name of Jesus needed to be hidden when Obama spoke at Georgetown University, which, for those of you who have not picked up on this, is a Catholic university. Having taken away the risk of offending atheists everywhere, Obama has managed to offend Christians everywhere.
But, really, from this man did you expect anything different? If Obama is at the podium, his handlers certainly don’t want the public reminded that there may be someone greater than he. MAY be. They’re not sure.
Here comes the right cross: In a memo to the nation’s law enforcement agencies that would qualify as the most damaging, divisive, derisive, demeaning and never-to-be-topped-were-it-not-for-the-fact-that-we-still-have-almost-four-years-to-go, Obama’s Homeland Security czar has smeared the military, Christians, anti-immigrationists, states-righters, pro-lifers and those that “are antagonistic towards the new presidential administration.”
The report, entitled Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment pretty much paints you as apotential domestic terrorist if you hold views that are not in line with the administrations. Dangerous stuff, to be sure. Great way to thank the active military, too - pointing them out as potential recruits for extremist nut-jobs. Extremist nut-jobs being, of course, those who disagree with Obama's policies.
And finally, the uppercut. The Justice Department is releasing never-before-published documents describing “harsh” interrogation procedures used by the CIA when questioning terrorist madmen who think the only thing better than massacring a thousand Americans is massacring ten thousand Americans.
I’m not making this up. I wish that I were.
The JD promises no prosecutions. Big deal. In one of the most disgusting acts of political grandstanding it has ever been my misfortune to comprehend, the demonization of America, by Americans, becomes more important than protecting the lives of American citizens. If you’re not sick, I mean really sick, to be reading this, I don’t know what to tell you.
The Staten Island Tea Party is unaffiliated with any group or organization, political or otherwise. We are a handful of ordinary Americans who call upon our friends and neighbors, our fellow citizens, to join us in raising their voices to their elected representatives. They must be made to know that we refuse to sit idly by and watch the destruction of all the values we hold so dear.
