There is increasing evidence that the far left is becoming ever more panicked by the thought of tea-party motivated Republicans taking control of the executive branch and both houses of Congress in 2012. That would be just four years after the nation celebrated the anointment of the Manger Baby from the mean streets of Chicago.
It all seemed so other-worldly and leg-tingling at the time — warmup performances by Stevie Wonder and Sheryl Crow, followed by the historic teleprompter speech, and all framed by those unforgettable Styrofoam Greek columns befitting the ascendancy of the Son of Saul.
But a funny thing happened on the way to the Obamessiah’s quest to calm the oceans and heal the planet. Like in a science-fiction thriller, he morphed from Kenyan Manger Baby into the King of Cons before our very eyes. Admittedly, it took at least fifteen minutes after he was sworn into office for many Americans to realize they had been bamboozled.
Now, the jig is up, as fickle Americans are deserting the King of Cons in droves. Basically, he is now clinging to the life preserver (or is it a death preserver?) thrown to him by the far left — communists, socialists, progressives, union nastys, and big-business types who share in the benefits of the scam (e.g., Jeffrey Immelt), as well as a variety of other political maggots.
Fortified by an army of clueless but angry useful idiots, lefties who are petrified by the thought of losing power have pulled out their never-fail Marxist playbooks and revved up the smearing, the lying, the hate mongering, and the blaming in a desperate effort to ward off an election holocaust in 2012.
The latest example of the left’s panic-stricken rhetoric came at a Congressional Black Caucus event in Miami last week, when an obscure congressman from Indiana by the name of Andre Carson angrily shouted, “Some of these folks in Congress right now would love to see us as second-class citizens. Some of them in Congress right now of this tea party movement would love to see you and me … hanging on a tree.”
Jason Tomcsi, a Carson spokesman, later issued a statement to The Washington Post in which he said that the congressman’s remarks were in response to his constituents’ frustration over “Congress’ inability to bolster the economy.”
Tomcsi continued by saying, “The tea party is protecting its millionaire and oil company friends while gutting critical services that they know protect the livelihood of African-Americans, as well as Latinos and other disadvantaged minorities. We are talking about child nutrition, job creation, job training, housing assistance, and Head Start, and that is just the beginning [my emphasis].”
Good for Mr. Tomcsi, because the issues he alluded to are precisely what the next election is all about. We’re at the tipping point, and people must decide if they believe it is really the government’s job (i.e., as designated by the Constitution) to provide “critical services” to protect anyone’s “livelihood.” They must decide if they believe it is really the government’s job to provide child nutrition, job creation, job training, and “housing assistance” to anyone. They must decide if they believe it is really Congress’ job to “bolster the economy.”
If your answer to any of these questions is yes, then you’re still mesmerized by the purple Styrofoam columns that brought us the great people destroyer disguised as the great planet healer. But if you’ve had your fill of the arrogant demands of political charlatans who prey on the ignorance and avarice of their uninformed constituents, you’ll punch out the chads for just about anyone who opposes the far-left welfare state.
And if the chads are with us, the much tougher job will be finding a way to hold the feet of newly elected “conservatives” to the fire and demand that they get serious about making real budget cuts and getting rid of sacred cow agencies administered by overpaid meddlers who don’t give a damn about voters, because voters didn’t put them into office and voters can’t remove them from office.
Be prepared to help ratchet up the tea-party voice and let so-called conservative politicians know that you don’t want them providing “critical services” to anyone, don’t want them protecting anyone’s “livelihood,” and, above all, don’t want them “bolstering (as in, destroying) the economy.”
In short: Just protect our God-given rights, and we’ll do the rest, thank you. We’ll know this country is moving in the right direction when the Black Caucus is disbanded and replaced by a Black Self-Responsibility Caucus led by men like Allen West and Tim Scott. Right now, unfortunately, that’s just a nice dream.
