It is the vision that in fact has already resulted in Chris Coons raising New Castle County, Delaware taxes. What taxes? In a fashion that will only stoke voter anger, after promising in his 2004 election campaign that he wouldn’t raise taxes Coons raised property taxes by 5% in 2006, then again by 17.5% in 2007, and again by 25% in 2009. Coons has proposed to raise hotel taxes, paramedic taxes, and, in a hilariously stereotypical move reported by the Washington Examiner’s Byron York — even taxes on 911 calls!
And raising taxes is, as Americans are learning the hard way, one of the tools used to meet the liberation theology goal of redistributing wealth in the name of social justice.
Much is being made of a college-era paper in which Coons claims he jokingly used the description of himself as “The Bearded Marxist.” As Politico described back in May, Coons said of his time in Kenya.
“[I]t is only too easy to return from Africa glad to be American and smugly thankful for our wealth and freedom,” added Coons. “Instead, Amherst had taught me to question, so in turn I questioned Amherst, and America.”
While he had no problem questioning America, apparently Coons was unwilling to question socialism, the South African Council of Churches, liberation theory, Black Liberation Theory, James Cone, Jeremiah Wright or the socialist principles of the Kairos Document. In fact, he said not a word about any of these things to Politico, much less is he saying anything to Delaware voters. Which is why, presumably, Harry Reid refers to Coons as his “pet.” Perhaps more should be seen in Coons’ statement that his experiences in Africa “warned me that my own favorite beliefs in the miracles of free enterprise and the boundless opportunities to be had in America were largely untrue.”
Really? Surprise, surprise. Wherever do you think Chris Coons learned that?
The American people are on to this game now. They get it to the max. Chris Coons wants to be the newest addition to the liberation theology zealotry in Washington — and the people of Delaware are supposed to be the passive yokels who agree to put him there. Even as they are losing their jobs, their homes and their entire hard won way of life because of the very philosophy Coons traveled thousands of miles to Africa to support.
Which is why Delaware Republicans, in a stunning doubling of turnout that no one predicted, just nominated Christine O’Donnell.
In a landslide.
Hello? Karl Rove? Republican Ruling Class?
Earth to Mars….
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
