Assault on Chick-fil-A — a finishing touch in America’s Obama-era refresher course in leftism.
(Page 3 of 3)
Either you, Comrade, are on board — or you are a target. The bullies will be coming. You must be made to shut down — and shut up. Rush was exactly right in saying that the mayors of Chicago and Boston were “essentially Stalinist.”
The difference now is that the American people are in fact finally fed up with this nonsense. The light is on and everybody, and I do mean everybody, is home in the American nation.
For those unfamiliar with the basic tenets of the Left, there has now been provided in the Obama-era a four-year crash course in how leftism really works in early 21st century in America.
The guillotine may be physically departed to the historical mists, but the televised images of an SEIU thug beating up an opponent of Obamacare capture the same mindset at work. Lenin may still lie embalmed in Moscow, but his spirit and that of the Russian Revolution haunts the riots launched by the Occupy Wall Street crowd. Even the tamer example of the Obama administration deciding that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) was something they didn’t like — and thus refused to enforce the law — displays the Left’s historic contempt for such a trifle as the Constitution. Not to mention the full-fledged attack on religious liberty that is the administration attempt to force the Catholic Church to violate its fundamental beliefs to appease HHS bureaucrats.
Lawlessness. Thuggery. Force.
These are the age old, age olds of the Left.
They have not changed. Nor will they.
The good news here is that the American people now have a refreshed and quite vivid understanding of how to spot the leftist virus that has so infected this, that or the other group.
They saw it the other day with all these alleged supporters of “gay rights” attacking Chick-fil-A.
And to their enormous credit, they stood up and swarmed a fast food chain whose signature is the humble chicken sandwich. Thereby elevating Chick-fil-A into a veritable symbol of free speech.
You could also say Chick-fil-A is something else as well. It has effectively acted as the political equivalent of the Richter Scale — the scale on which the tremors of a coming earthquake are detected.
There is a political earthquake coming in November.
As Ronald Reagan used to say:
“You ain’t seen nothing yet.”
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?
