You see, ordinary people are not dumb. No matter how many media elites and Washington politicians would like to dismiss the masses, they know the difference between socialism and freedom. The current administration and ruling class in Washington is on a fast track to europeanization of our once great country. And patriotic Americans will not let that happen.
These weren't your typical "rent-a-mob" of paid leftists. There was no George Soros pulling the strings to orchestrate these protests. This was a true grass roots movement. Heck, in my birthplace, Longview, Texas, a quiet city in East Texas, over a thousand gathered to protest. I lived there 18 years and my Father another 26 years beyond that. Nothing like that had EVER happened there to my recollection.
There was a protest in Dallas and in nearly every suburb in the Dallas and Fort Worth areas. Texans are familiar with oppression having fought and won our freedom from a ruthless Mexican dictator. We joined the union to enjoy the freedom promised by Uncle Sam. Texans have fought and died in countless wars. We have sacrificed in many ways to do our part to make this country better.
But as Washington becomes more oppressive in its demands, secession is always a possible solution, as many speakers made clear at most of these rallies. If real change doesn't come to Washington, that will be the final alternative. Texas, or any American for that matter, does not deserve to live under the tyranny of a corrupt and bankrupt government. But we will not leave without a fight. This country deserves better than the liberal lunacy that now infests Washington.
The left was in overdrive trying to discredit the movement. Obama's Department of Homeland Insecurity released an advisory stating that right-wing extremists or returning veterans might have the potential to cause violence. From this highly offensive report put out with the blessing of the White House:
Rightwing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.
Literally every Conservative could at some point be called potential threats by this "advisory." Does this sound like the "change" you believe in? Actually it sounds much more like the Soviet Union or Cuba. All we need now is ACORN or Obama's brown-shirted hoodlums rounding all us evil Conservatives up for eradication or re-education. There was no mention of the many terrorists and terrorist sympathizers currently working in and with this administration.
The mainstream media largely ignored the events or tried to discredit them in their own way. One CNN reporterette made her liberal bias so profoundly obvious - as if we really need more evidence. See if you can spot the "angry" protesters and the "unbiased" reporterette.
Did you catch her DEFENDING the White House, claiming that Illinois gets $50 billion in payola and the taxpayer should be happy about that? Susan, sweetheart, who do you think has to pay for that?
Susan Roesgen is the reporterette's name. And if she is not immediately fired for this completely unprofessional display, she should at least be reprimanded. But this is not the first time Susan Roesgen has displayed her "professionalism."
There is a good reason why I stopped watching CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC and reading the New York Times and other leftist media years ago. They are nothing more than propaganda arms of the Democrat party. The irony is that many "professionals" in the industry aren't even willing to admit that just maybe their reporting is biased. As their viewership/readership continues to crash, maybe they will finally wake up and realize that they do have an important role in society. And it is not to promote a leftist agenda.
Regardless of the stupidity of the left, the right is mobilized and energized. Hopefully, strong Conservative leaders will emerge and lead us out of the pit of liberal hell which Obama and friends have taken us.
UPDATE: Founding Bloggers has video taken of our favorite CNN reporterette after the hit piece.
