The Right Opinion

The Stuff of Third World Tyrants

By David Limbaugh · Jan. 29, 2013

President Barack Obama is not just a radical leftist; he is obviously so ensconced in his ideology that he believes – or wants you to believe – that anyone who opposes him must have sinister motives.

One of his recurring themes is that some Republicans would work with him but can't do so for fear of reprisal from Grover Norquist on taxes, the National Rifle Association on guns, the conservative House caucus, radio talk show hosts and your garden-variety racists, who allegedly oppose Obama just for sport.

In mid-January, Obama accused the “gun lobby” of “ginning up” fears that the federal government would use the Newtown, Conn., shooting tragedy to seize America's guns, saying, “It's certainly good for business.” Is that how presidents should talk?

Obama suggested that GOP congressional opposition was based not on principle but on the fear that unless it resisted Obama's gun-grabbing schemes, it would lose its precious NRA funding. As if the American public agrees with Obama on this issue any more than it did on Obamacare. As if Obama truly cares whether the American public agrees with him on this issue (other than as a means to an end) any more than he cared about the public's view on Obamacare.

Indeed, this is either record-breaking myopia or sophisticated Orwellian deception. Few things are more palpable on the political scene today than the groundswell of grass-roots support for the right to own firearms under the Second Amendment. It is intrinsic to the American character.

Obama didn't just mischaracterize the public mood on the issue of gun control; he threw in an additional allegation of political corruption against Republicans, saying, “The House Republican majority is made up mostly of members who are in sharply gerrymandered districts that are very safely Republican and may not feel compelled to pay attention to broad-based public opinion, because what they're really concerned about is the opinions of their specific Republican constituencies.”

Do you see the pattern here? As the leading disciple of radical community organizer Saul Alinsky, Obama must delegitimize his political opposition. He can't just debate issues on the merits. He must “pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” We've seen Obama do it on virtually every policy he has promoted – from demonizing health care professionals and insurance companies in pursuit of Obamacare to taunting “fat cat banks” in his quest for financial “reform” to his defamation of “big oil” to his personal attacks on the “rich” to his savaging of Rep. Paul Ryan and other House Republicans as callous toward seniors and the middle class for daring to reform entitlements.

Obama will not stand for House Republicans to be seen as good-faith opponents to his socialist agenda. He has to slander them with charges of nefarious motives. Republicans oppose his gun grab because they jealously guard their corruptly acquired congressional seats (through gerrymandering), which depend upon blood money from the NRA, which is motivated by its own lust for profits. There simply can't be any legitimate public opposition to his position, because, by gosh, he's the president and his views – and mandate – are superior.

Obama isn't content just to vilify his congressional opposition. With a newfound cockiness from his re-election that even exceeds his previous levels, he has now called out Fox News and private citizen Rush Limbaugh. Alinsky's cremated ashes must be glowing with delight.

Obama said, “If a Republican member of Congress is not punished on Fox News or by Rush Limbaugh for working with a Democrat on a bill of common interest, then you'll see more of them doing it.” He added, “The more left-leaning media outlets recognize that compromise is not a dirty word” and that Democratic leaders are “willing to buck the more absolutist-wing elements in our party to try to get stuff done.”

That statement alone should tell you how warped Obama's perspective is. The congressional Democratic leadership is already so leftist and uncompromising that it doesn't have to worry about pleasing more leftist elements. And the left-leaning media not only don't recognize what true compromise is but also don't hold Obama to account for his own habitual refusal to compromise.

That Obama is the most ideologically extreme president in history and routinely demonizes his political opponents is bad enough. But he has crossed the line in targeting the sole TV news outlet that refuses to allow his propaganda to go unchallenged and even more so in attacking commentator Rush Limbaugh for the sin of articulating the opinions of millions upon millions of American patriots who are horrified at Obama's statist agenda.

This is the stuff of Third World tyrants, my friends. This is the MO of dictators, who want to control the media and silence any unfavorable coverage or commentary. Even liberals should be outraged at this abominable behavior. And they should have the integrity to say so.

Capt. Call in New Mexico said:

1st Samuel (or 1st Kings for those who title the books differently) has a great parallel of this in Chapter 8, verses 4- 7:

1 Samuel 8:4-7 (KJV)
4 Then all the elders of Israel gathered themselves together, and came to Samuel unto Ramah,
5 And said unto him, Behold, thou art old, and thy sons walk not in thy ways: now make us a king to judge us like all the nations.
6 But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the LORD.
7 And the LORD said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.

The people of the United States have demanded a tyrant be their ruler. They will reap the consequences; they have sowed the wind, and will reap the whirlwind.

Just part of the modern "scapegoating" of conservatives. If Obama succeeds in registering firearms, they will soon be confiscated and then the cultural cleansing of those problematic conservative, religiously strident, rich, greedy, 1%, tea party, racist, women hating, homophobes can begin in earnest. The processes has taken 5 - 30 years in every previous iteration worldwide, but with modern media propaganda and a crisis economy, Obama can probably pull it off in less time.

That is, Unless America wakes up to the nightmare of tyranny that has touched every civilization - except ours - only because we are just not there yet. Our Constitution has held us back from the abyss - but we are now lunging for the edge..casting the Constitution aside in our rush to progressive equality of outcome, and government control.

When you can't win an argument on merit, impugn the motives and character of your opponent.

This is a classic bait and switch argument. It is like not being able to defend Affirmitave Action so you call someone opposed a racist.

Classic left wing liberal tactic.

There is no compromising with tyrants!

Let Barry throw his tantrums, let DiFi whine to the media. The media is complicit in their schemes - anyone who denies this is willfully ignorant or an accomplice. Let the world see these people as the liars they truly are -for they have sold their souls to the Master of Lies. They don't give a rat's a$$ about your children, else they would not condone the mass murder of our children in utero.

To compromise now is to lose freedom forever.

I agree with this statement and wonder why the left of this country is so convinced that Nixon was the worst. Nixon a creme-puff compared to Saul Obama.
