America needs God to be good

founders-quote-NWebsterThe moral principles and precepts contained in the Scripture ought to form the basis of all our civil constitutions and laws. All the miseries and evils which men suffer from, vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, slavery, and war proceed from their despising or neglecting of the precepts contained in the Bible.
~ Noah Webster, the Father of public education in America

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 
To a man, America’s founding fathers acknowledged the existence of a creator God. That single core belief is the very lynchpin of our Constitutional Republic. This is plain historical fact, whether our friends on the Left wish to acknowledge it or not.
 
founding-fathers-prayingAnd we reject that transcendent truth at the country’s peril because, as Dennis Prager points out in a recent article; America Won’t Be Good without God ~

On page 563 of his latest biography — John Quincy Adams: American Visionary — author Fred Kaplan (biographer of Abraham Lincoln, Charles Dickens, Mark Twain, and Gore Vidal among others) cites this insight of the sixth president:
 
Christianity had, all in all, he believed, been a civilizing force, “checking and controlling the anti-social passions of man.”
 
That insight is pretty much all an American needs to know in order to understand why the American Founders considered religion — specifically ethical monotheism rooted in the Hebrew Bible — indispensable to the American experiment; and why the America we have known since 1776 is in jeopardy.

 
Prager explains how men cannot be self-governing if they refuse to govern themselves, and demonstrates how faith is crucial to a free society ~

… our prisons are not filled with religious Jewish and Christian murderers. On the contrary, if all Americans attended church weekly, we would need far fewer prisons; and the ones we needed would have very few murderers in them.
 
Meanwhile the record of the godless and non-Christianity crowd is awful. I am not simply referring to the godless and secular Communist regimes of the 20th century that committed virtually every genocide of those hundred years. I am referring to those Americans (and Europeans) who use reason to argue, among other foolish things: that good and evil are subjective societal or individual opinions; that gender is purely a social construct and therefore the male and female distinction is of no importance; that marriage isn’t important and is just a piece of paper invented by the religious to keep women down; that a human fetus, even when it has a beating heart, a formed human body, and a conscious brain, has less of a right to life than a cat; and that men, let alone fathers, aren’t necessary [...]
 
For proof of the moral and intellectual consequences of the secularization of America, look at what has happened to the least religious institution in America, the university. Is that the future we want for the whole country?

 

The Progressive Pied Piper in the White House and his merry band of malcontents have almost succeeded in knocking down America’s lynchpin; our belief in a Creator (a God who will ultimately judge each and every one of us). The only way to slow or reverse the country’s downward spiral is put that anchor back in place, firmly re-establishing our Judeo-Christian foundation.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It is religion and morality alone which can establish the principles upon which freedom can securely stand. The only foundation of a free constitution is pure virtue.

Saturday Shorts – 7-26-14

sshorts6-29-13

Random links of interest, concern or curiosity from the past week or so, that deserve at least a SHORT mention:

 
Military bars troops from attending Vacation Bible school honor ~ This summer it’s full speed ahead with Obama’s anti-Christian crusade ~

Welcome to the age of enlightenment… where the military can march in a gay pride parade but they can’t hang out with six-year-olds at Vacation Bible School.

 
Jail time for ex-National Front candidate over ‘monkey’ jibe ~ Seriously? Jail? If this is already happening in France, how long before the Progressive thought police here in the U.S. start imposing prison time for political correctness violations??
 
Summer 2014: Who Really Owns the U.S. National Debt? ~ Interesting to see who’s supposed to get a slice of the $17,5 trillion 8O dollar pie.

 

MIDDLE EAST MELTDOWN UP-DATE:

 
ISIS’ reign of terror in Iraq shows no signs of slowing down ~

Jihadists ‘order four million girls and women in Iraqi city to undergo female genital mutilation’
Islamic State destroys Jonah’s Tomb in Mosul

 
While in Israel ~

Exploding donkey in Gaza, dead cows in Israel ~ When it comes to Jihad, all of God’s creation is expendable. Especially human non-combatants ~ Gaza – Hamas Exploits Death Over Life ~ Something even Slick Willie gets ~

“Hamas was perfectly well aware what would happen if they started raining rockets on Israel. They fired a thousand of them, and they have a strategy designed to force Israel to kill their own civilians so that the rest of the world will condemn them [...]
… In the short to medium term, Hamas can inflict terrible public relations damage on Israel by forcing it to kill Palestinian civilians to counter Hamas.” ~ Fmr Pres. Bill Clinton 7-17-14

On the other hand ~ IDF Opens Hospital for Palestinians, Hamas Prevents Access ~ It’s plain for anyone who wants to see the truth; the clear moral UNequivalency between Israel and Hamas ~

The IDF has opened a temporary hospital for Palestinians on the Israeli side of the Erez Crossing. Even as terrorists fire rockets at Israel, the hospital is treating wounded civilians in cooperation with the Red Crescent. Hamas, the terrorist organization that rules Gaza, has prevented Palestinians from entering Israel in order to reach the hospital.

 
Ten Reasons Why I Am No Longer a Leftist ~ Interesting look into the dystopian minds of Lefties; dismissively arrogant, hypocritical and chronically angry.

 

The brutal Obama policy that’s really driving the Border Crisis ~ Just having a kid with you is a get-in-free card! Excellent article that exposes the progressive duplicity inherent in the border crisis.
 
No Longer the World’s Policeman, We’re Now the World’s Social Worker ~ Because, apparently, the Bible tells us so ~

… interesting how the left never quotes the Bible when discussing homosexual marriage or abortion, but let an illegal appear on the horizon and it’s instant theology class. We Christians are told by people who I doubt even own a Bible that Christ told us to welcome the stranger and alien [...]
 
Which only proves that both the devil and the leftist can quote scripture. They just don’t quote it all. Exodus and Numbers on more than one occasion discuss how the alien should be treated and sure enough it is with equality and generosity. BUT and it’s a big but, Numbers 15:15 plainly states, “The community is to have the same rules for you and for the foreigner residing among you; this is a lasting ordinance for the generations to come. You and the foreigner shall be the same before the Lord.”
 
So it’s clear the foreigner residing among us is to be held to the same rules or law as we are. When one’s first action in joining a community is to break the law, it would seem to me that the proper Biblical response would not be a warm welcome.

 
NHL outlines plan to fight climate change ~ Good grief! As @JunkScience tweeted: “NHL falls for hokey stick. Claims winter, hockey threatened by warming. Irony of TWO FLORIDA teams lost on league.”
People, it’s a SCAM.

“The Way” out of gay

“Such Were Some of You” is a new documentary offering testimony from former homosexuals whose lives have been transformed by the saving grace of Jesus Christ.

They describe the development of their same-sex attractions, what the gay lifestyle was like, what their conversion process was like, and the various ways that Jesus has brought healing to their broken places.

 
ex-gayhopeDavid Kyle Foster discusses the film in more depth in an article at Charisma News; Former Homosexual Reveals ‘Unmitigated Disaster of Gay Marriage’ ~

Homosexual behavior also tears at the soul, causing much higher rates for substance abuse, suicide, depression, domestic violence, early death—even in the most gay-friendly regions of the globe. Why? Because active homosexuals are trying to find something through gay relationships that can never be found there. The happiness that they seek can only be found in submitting their sexuality to the Lordship of Christ and allowing Him to bring healing to the broken areas that have caused their homosexual desires. Yes, it’s a slow and sometimes arduous path to take, just as it is for the addict, but the only one that leads to joy, peace and eternal life with God [...]

Our population has laid the groundwork for faux marriages by practicing adultery and in other ways rebelling against the meaning and purpose of sex and marriage. But inventing and sanctioning homosexual marriages is a logarithmic jump in rebellion and consequent disaster [...]
 
A newly released two-hour documentary (attempts to counter the gay marriage agenda) with truth. In it, 29 former homosexuals expose the facts about homosexuality, its causes and how Jesus has set them free from it [...]
 
… what makes this film so powerful are the moving stories of being saved, set free, healed and delivered from the brokenness of homosexuality by those who have gone through that great trial. With love and sensitivity for friends still trapped in the gay lifestyle, they also describe the process by which God has brought healing to the brokenness that created their same-sex desires in the first place.

 
Here’s the trailer for “Such were some of you” ~
 

 
Knowing they will no doubt be attacked by the radicals in the LGBT movement, I have nothing but admiration for these men and women who’ve been moved to share their stories of transformation.

America’s Demise – the End Game

For the past five and a half years, the O’Ministration has been playing the American sheeple like a Stradivarius. So it’s probably too late for many of our fellow citizens to fully appreciate how far gone the country actually is. Still, like a modern day Paul Revere, you should do your best to warn them by forwarding this video to as many people as possible.
 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Zack Taylor, retired border patrol officer, shares the stunning
facts surrounding our illegal alien invasion. It’s all part
of what he refers to as “asymmetric warfare” ~

 

Video via Western Rifle Shooters Assoc.

 

All the signs over the past several years have been pointing to the scenario Taylor is describing, but like so many other people, I just didn’t want to believe that the Washington power elite was so utterly evil that they were actually plotting to destroy the United States and millions of her people. Now however, watching this guy clearly explain how the current border crisis neatly fits into the larger picture, how it spells “doom” for America, I’m almost physically ill.

The World’s War on Christendom – Latest Dispatch from the Front

noChristiansJohn15
 

Those who regard worthless idols forsake their own Mercy.
But I will sacrifice to You with the voice of thanksgiving;
I will pay what I have vowed. Salvation is of the Lord.

~ Jonah 2:8-9 ~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 
jonah

The story of Jonah and the whale centers on the Old Testament town of Nineveh. God was displeased with the wickedness He found in that city and instructed Jonah to go and tell the people to repent. The prophet wanted nothing to do with the mission (the city was pagan – not Hebrew – and notorious for its cruelty) so he lit out in the opposite direction – by boat. Which is how he ended up in the whale… realized the error of his ways… and went off to follow God’s instructions. And the people of Nineveh heard him, believed and repented.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 
Jonah, the reluctant prophet, lived around 750 B.C.. So why bring up this old fossil in 2014? Well, the millennia-old site of the heathen town of Nineveh, is roughly where the northern Iraqi city of Mosul is located today.
 

And Mosul – recently overrun by the ruthless terrorist group ISIS – is apparently reverting back to barbarism ~ Christians Fleeing Iraq’s Mosul After Jihadist Ultimatum ~

(AFP) Christians were fleeing Iraq’s jihadist-held city of Mosul en masse Friday after mosques relayed an ultimatum giving them a few hours to leave, the country’s Chaldean patriarch and witnesses said [...]
 
A statement dated from last week and purportedly issued by the Islamic State jihadist group that took over the city and large swathes of Iraq during a sweeping offensive last month warned Mosul’s Christians they should convert, pay a special tax, leave or face death.
 
“We were shocked by the distribution of a statement by the Islamic State calling on Christians to convert to Islam, or to pay unspecified tribute, or to leave their city and their homes taking only their clothes and no luggage, and that their homes would then belong to the Islamic State,” Sako said.
 
The patriarch, who is one of the most senior Christian clerics in Iraq, and residents contacted by AFP said Islamic State militants had in recent days been tagging Christian houses with the letter N for “Nassarah”, the term by which the Koran refers to Christians.
 
The statement, which was seen by AFP, said “there will be nothing for them but the sword” if Christians reject those conditions.

 
Even the Iraqi Prime Minister Condemns Jihadis’ Targeting of Christians ~

“What is being done by the Daesh terrorist gang against our Christian citizens in Ninevah province, and their aggression against the churches and houses of worship in the areas under their control reveals beyond any doubt the extremist criminal and terrorist nature of this group,” al-Maliki said in a statement released by his office, using the Arabic acronym for the Islamic State group.
 
“Those people, through their crimes, are revealing their true identity and the false allegations made here and there about the existence of revolutionaries among their ranks.”

Iraq’s Christian communities date back to the first centuries of the religion. Before the 2003 U.S-led invasion, around 1 million Christians called Iraq home. But since then, the community has been a frequent target for militants, and attacks on churches, worshippers and clergymen has prompted many Christians to leave the country. Church officials now estimate the community at around 450,000.

 

“For the first time in the history of Iraq, Mosul is now empty of Christians.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Another great article at Breitbart explains the gravity of the situation: Christian Holocaust Underway in Iraq, USA and World Look On ~

In a region where Christians predate Muslims by centuries, over one million Christians have been killed or have had to flee because of jihadi persecution, while America is basically standing by and watching [...]
 
Dr. (Sebastian) Gorka (Breitbart’s National Security Editor) explained that “in the last 48 hours, ISIS, which is now called the Islamic State in Mosul, has painted the letter “N” for Nazarene on the houses of all the surviving Christians in the city. ISIS has basically given an ultimatum to all the Christians left: You can either flee or convert to Islam, or we will kill you.”
 
Gorka points out that, over the last 20 years, America has stood up around the world to save Muslims. “Whether it was to save the Muslims in Bosnia or the Albanians, Kosovars, and Muslims in Serbia, it is now time for a humanitarian operation to save the remaining Christians in Iraq,” he said. “It is time for the American people and our representatives to do something for our co-religionists remaining in the Middle East.”
 
Marlow observed that the blatant religious cleansing is horrifying and asked Gorka: “Why is it that the mainstream press is not interested in the story?” Gorka first responded by saying “Let’s face it, this is a Christian version of the Holocaust and nothing less.”

 

Islamists are now literally purging Mosul of Christians; the city is reverting to its Old Testament heathenism. As Gorka says, this is a human tragedy that the mainstream media – and thus most Americans – are just ignoring. That this outrage is occurring with little or no opposition from the west is simply unfathomable.

An Archduke Ferdinand Moment?

While it’s rather disconcerting to be on the same wavelength as Michael Savage from time to time, it’s good to know I’m not the only one who experienced a weird sense of déjà vu on Friday, after the downing of Malaysian Air Flight 17. For some of us historically-minded types, that shocking event brought to mind a similar occurrence one hundred years ago.
 
Recall…
Europe -
In a state of geo-political turmoil -
Jolted by a sudden tragedy, the details of which are unclear, and likely to cause further unrest…

Where in the past have we seen a parallel set of circumstances?
 
Well coincidentally, just last month, June 28th marked the 100th anniversary of the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand, heir-apparent to the Austro-Hungarian empire, and his wife Sophie. These murders were the very spark that lit the fuse of the first World War.

archdukeFerdinand

While riding in the motorcade through the streets of Sarajevo on 28 June, Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie were shot and killed by Gavrilo Princip, a Bosnian member of the Black Hand (a Serbian terrorist group) […]

Source: FirstWorldWar.com

 
The assassination set off a rapid chain of events, as Austria-Hungary immediately blamed the Serbian government for the attack. As large and powerful Russia supported Serbia, Austria asked for assurances that Germany would step in on its side against Russia and its allies, including France and possibly Great Britain. On July 28, Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia, and the fragile peace between Europe’s great powers collapsed, beginning the devastating conflict now known as the First World War.

Source: History.com

 

The point is, while the murders were a shocking, tragic event, they had no direct impact on America or her people – initially. Europe and her internal power struggles were half a world away. And even those more directly involved, on the continent itself, couldn’t have foreseen that this act of terrorism would light the flame of a world-wide conflagration.
 
And yet that’s exactly what happened. The assassination set off a mindlessly mechanical series of events that culminated in the world’s first global war.
 

The United States was eventually sucked into the massive conflict, on April 6, 1917.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 
So, back to the present day. When we consider the widespread instability around the world, particularly in Ukraine and the Middle East, along with the power vacuums created by Barack Obama’s lack of principled leadership, can we help but wonder whether or not the downed Malaysian flight will turn out to be this generation’s Archduke Ferdinand moment?

Interesting take from Doug Hagmann at Canada Free Press further affirms my suspicions ~

The downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 as it flew from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur yesterday, killing nearly 300 men, women and children, currently dominates today’s headline-rich environment. Accusations about who is behind this wholesale slaughter of innocents are serving as the drumbeats for war, and they are increasing in volume and tempo [...]
 
To understand the significance of the downing of Flight 17, we must look at the bigger picture and think outside of the box created for us by those in power and their facilitators in the media. We must understand a bit of history, and realize that we are not seeing anything new in terms of tactics or orchestration [...]
 
The reason, I contend, behind the downing of Flight 17 is much more nefarious than I’ve seen discussed elsewhere. Simply stated, it is my belief that we are witnessing the run-up to World War III.

There, he said it.
(Hagmann’s focusing on the trigger for U.S. involvement, comparing Flight 17 to the sinking of the Lusitania. Could be. Either way – bad vibes)

• Is it tolerant and merciful to release MS-13 gang members, rapists, murderers and drug dealers among our U.S. population while denying entry to white, healthy, and educated Europeans?
• Is it compassionate to allow disease, crime (human trafficking, drug smuggling, gangs, murder, property theft and destruction), and Islamic terrorists enter our country unchecked?
• Is it kind to steal from one group of people and give to the invading hordes from foreign countries who are not really fleeing a war zone?

Aussie judge defines deviancy down


 

This episode of “Disorder in the Court,”
comes to us from the Land Down Under, in which
we learn that incest and pedophilia are no longer
unacceptable forms of sexual expression.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 
Australian Judge Suggests Incest, Pedophilia Are Next ‘Civil Rights ~

Sydney, Australia District Court Judge Garry Neilson…

…had the audacity to suggest that some may no longer see sexual contact between adults and children as “unnatural” or “taboo,” according to a report in the Sydney Morning Herald. He went on to remind that gay sex was not acceptable—and actually criminal—in the 1950s and 1960s but many tolerate it today.
 
Neilson made the remarks against the backdrop of a 58-year-old man who was charged with raping his pre-pubescent sister decades ago. The man, known as MRM in the legal case, pled out to incest instead of rape.
 
“A jury might find nothing untoward in the advance of a brother towards his sister once she had sexually matured, had sexual relationships with other men and was now ‘available’, not having [a] sexual partner,” Neilson said, noting that the “only reason” incest is still a criminal act is because of the high risk of genetic defects. But he has a solution for that, too: “ready access to abortion.”

 
Judge Neilson isn’t saying anything new here. Western civilization’s moral values have been decaying for decades. He’s just putting the court’s official sanction on the deviancy. And sure, why not. Aren’t we all just “born that way” – whatever “that” is?
 
But on the other hand – to borrow a favorite intimidation phrase from the lefties – who is this judge “to judge?”
 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 
In response to Neilson’s proclamations…

Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans for Truth, a national organization devoted to exposing and countering the homosexual activist agenda, may have said it best: “The slippery slope of sexual perversion and sin continues to yield stunning departures from healthy, Judeo-Christian morality.”

Tragic Consequences of Federal Lawlessness

When the feds abdicate their sworn responsibility to enforce our laws and protect the citizens of the United States, the results aren’t pretty.
 
For example, an illegal immigrant, recently released by U.S. authorities (processed in the Border Patrol station in McAllen, Texas on June 26) with only a “notice to appear” form, was just charged with second-degree murder…

… in the death of his girlfriend, who was found viciously bludgeoned in her New Orleans apartment over the weekend. The woman, identified as 24-year-old Heidi Monroy, was reportedly the mother of a 2-year-old who was with Monterroso-Navas, a Honduran, during his arrest.
 
Jefferson Parish sheriff’s Col. John Fortunato told the AP that the suspect was arrested early Monday with his three children in a trailer park in Katy, Texas.

 
ramirez-tear-down-border-wa 
Are we actually supposed to believe that breaking (the law) and entering (our country) is the one and only crime an illegal will ever commit? A majority don’t seem to have any respect at all for the rule of law. And unfortunately, neither does our federal government. Which is why we can expect to see more headlines like this:

Illegal Immigrant Deported 4 Times Sexually Assaults 9-Y-O Girl; Mom Blames Feds’ Lax Border Security for Crime ~

A Texas family blames the federal government’s inability to secure the U.S. border for the alleged assault of their 9-year-old daughter by an illegal immigrant from Mexico.
 
“He came across 30 days ago during all this influx of children from Central America,” Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler told WFAA about the suspect who’s been deported four times since 2003.

 
Then there was the heart-breaking story of a Mesa, Arizona police sergeant, killed two months ago by a criminal, drunken illegal who should have been deported more than a decade ago. His mother, Mary Ann Mendoza, wrote an anguished letter to Pres. Obama, published by CBS-5 AZ ~

President Obama,
 
I am writing this letter to you regarding illegal immigrants.
 
sgtMendozaAs a tax paying, law abiding citizen of the United States, I WANT my voice heard on this issue. My son, Sergeant Brandon Mendoza, an officer who was with the City of Mesa, Arizona police department, was killed in a tragic head on collision on May 12, 2014 by a wrong way driver on our freeways. This man happened to be an illegal immigrant, was in this country illegally, convicted of previous crimes, no Social Security number, no valid driver’s license BUT he had purchased a vehicle and registered it to drive in Maricopa County Arizona.
 
I had my son’s life STOLEN from me by a man who didn’t value his life, was 3X the legal limit drunk, was high on Meth, drove for over 35 miles THE WRONG WAY on 4 different freeways and had NO BUSINESS BEING IN THIS COUNTRY!!!
 
The Federal Government knew he, Raul Silva Corona , was an illegal immigrant when he was convicted on crimes in 1994 in Colorado. The prosecutors were “lenient” on him and several charges were dismissed. When he was convicted of these crimes and 1994 and the government knew he was in the country illegally, why wasn’t he deported? Why are any of these illegal criminals in this country??
 
I am furious that the Federal Government allowed this criminal to stay in this country and KILL my son! I have attached several articles for you to PERSONALLY read about my son. He was an Icon with the City of Mesa Police Department. He was instrumental in making life better for people of all walks of life in the park project he took on. He was humble, selfless, worked many hours off the clock helping disadvantaged children and often used his own money to do things for the community, including “adopting” children at Christmas to provide them with gifts….out of his own money!! [...]
 
The Chief of Police posthumously promoted him during the week of his funeral but that highlight of his life was stolen from him!!! He was officer of the year last year. Officer of the quarter for the first quarter of 2014. He was only 32 years old and had done more in his life than most of us have done in a lifetime!
 
I am going to have my voice heard and I want to you to know what my personal feeling is on whether CRIMINAL ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS should be allowed in this country. I have been DIRECTLY affected by this. I am sure if your life had been affected like mine has been, you would have a different view of this situation. I have lived in Arizona most of my life. My son, Brandon Mendoza, was half Hispanic. It’s not the color of skin that my son or I see, it’s the person and how they conduct their lives. If you can’t enter this country legally then you shouldn’t be here. If you commit crimes, you should pay the time any of us as US Citizens would have to serve. Letting these illegal criminals out of our jails before their time is served and turning them loose on the streets to commit further crimes and KILL our loved ones is NOT ACCEPTABLE TO ME!! AND it shouldn’t be acceptable to any US Citizen. Mr. President, you don’t have the right to make this decision yourself…..

Read the entire letter HERE.
 
What a damn shame that our federal government takes the side of foreign national lawbreakers over honorable, upstanding police officers like Sgt. Brandon Mendoza.

 

Meanwhile, illegal-alien journalist turned activist Jose Antonio Vargas mocks our national sovereignty: The face of the entitled illegal alien.

This year, it’s a goofy parade float.

 

That’s right. Relentlessly pursuing their totalitarian agenda of stamping out all dissent, the iron-fisted O’Ministration is now “investigating…” – drum roll please – a 4th of July parade float:
Eric Holder’s Justice Dept. investigates Nebraska farmer’s possible abuse of power ~

If you’ve been asking for the Justice Department to get involved in the IRS scandal, well, that’s just not going to happen. That is, unless Lois Lerner’s “missing” emails somehow ended up in a mock outhouse on this parade float ~

The U.S. Department of Justice has joined the discussions over a controversial float in the Norfolk Independence Day parade.
 
The department sent a member of its Community Relations Service Team, which gets involved in discrimination disputes, to a Thursday meeting about the issue.

Good grief.hangingBush
So I’ll bet you’re asking yourself, gee, how are all those investigations involving “controversial” protest displays from the Bush years coming along?

 
 

For instance, wasn’t this guy »
arrested for inciting lynching?

Surely the “Community Relations Service Team” looked into
« this charming exhibit;
Pres. Bush being beheaded by a guillotine at an Obama
campaign rally in Denver, Oct. 26, 2008???

Wait – what?
 
 
Oh yeah. When George W. Bush was in office, any form of inflammatory protest was acceptable. In fact, the anti-Bush crowd seemed to compete with one another for the most outrageous display of hate…

Zombie has dozens more pix, each sentiment more vile than the next.

 

Worse yet, actual death threats against Bush at protests were ignored for years. In 2006, a British film even released a mock documentary titled “Death of a President,” depicting the imagined assassination of President Bush. The Left loved it.
 
The double-standards are simply astounding. As Doug Powers (at Michelle Malkin’s blog) wonders ~

Was the First Amendment updated to specify Americans “can’t make fun of the president” the day Obama entered office?

 
All kidding aside, the growing intimidation of anyone who criticizes the Obama administration is reminiscent of every fascist regime the world has ever been afflicted with. This government persecution should be absolutely chilling to Americans of every political persuasion; to each and every one of us who cherish our precious freedoms.
