In all of my 65-years, I have never seen, NOR had I believed it to be even possible, that in our Democracy (American Republic), that our ELECTED Leaders, self-appointed ELITIST “community organizers”, and everyday people . . . could CONCEIVABLY have such an inordinate amount of FEAR FOR JUST ONE SPEECH.
When I went to University (Sir George Williams – Montreal) at night, but NEVER finished (proud to be in the same category of Scott Walker), I had a CIVIC’s Professor, who as it turned out to be, was quite far to the LEFT, who hammered into his students, that . . .
“I MIGHT NOT AGREE WITH WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY. BUT, I WILL DEFEND WITH MY LIFE – YOUR RIGHT TO SAY IT.”
THAT WAS 1968/69 . . . It’s hard to believe, that was just 47-years ago, and look at how our VALUES and appreciation for FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION has so dramatically changed.
One of the RESOLUTE principles of LIBERALISM, when I was growing up, was how we were EDUCATED (conditioned) to believe that FREEDOM of SPEECH was the most important FREEDOM we had, almost exclusively protected by LIBERALS.
I STILL BELIEVE THAT FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION . . . is the anchor to all of our FREEDOMS, especially in the USA, where the FIRST AMENDMENT is GUARANTEED by the SECOND AMENDMENT.
BUT WHAT I DON’T BELIEVE . . . is that in this day and age, the LEFT can be trusted by any stretch to protect anyone’s FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION.
AS I WROTE IN THE PRECEDING . . . the level of HYSTERIA over Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s March 3, 2015 speech, before a Joint Session of Congress borders on INSANITY at all levels.
How could the mere presence, and the words of a World Leader, who is not ONLY a good friend, BUT ALSO A KEY ALLY IN THE WAR AGAINST ISLAMO/FASCISM, create such PANIC in the White House and amongst the LEFT, “INCLUDING” LEFTIST Jewish Community Organizers?
The LEFT build their “TRUTHS” on a FOUNDATION of LIES, which are easily toppled the moment these PHONY TRUTHS are challenged with REAL FACTS.
1 – Obamacare . . . So as not to have an honest debate. And in order to CONCEAL the truth, Nancy Pelosi said – “First you have to pass it, to know what’s in it.”
2 – The IRS . . . Denied Conservatives Non-Profit Status.
3 – The FBI . . . Investigated Reporters (James Rosen FOX News).
4 – The NSA . . . Caught spying on all Americans.
5 – Fast And Furious . . . The Justice Department Caught Arming Cartels.
6 – Benghazi . . . Clinton And The State Department Withholding Information.
AND THIS SORDID LIST GOES ON . . . from the Arab Spring, to the REAL TRUTH about Iran, and the wretched deal being concocted behind Israel’s back, and the back of the FREE World.
We have witnessed SIX-YEARS of LIES, LIES and MORE LIES . . . BUT FAR WORSE THAN THAT – we’ve seen an UNPRECEDENTED volume of political COWARDICE with all politicians, but ESPECIALLY amongst the Republicans.
IT SEEMS TO ME . . . that the Republicans have been TERRIFIED to stand up to Obama and his LEFTIST HORDE, who’ve been DISMANTLING the US Constitution and American DREAM . . . Brick-By-Brick.
The Republicans also seem to have been FRIGHTENED to be called the PARTY of NO, when NO was for the most part the right word to use, and the right position to take. They have also been HORRIFIED to be called RACISTS if they stood up to America’s FIRST Black President.
SO . . . FOR THE LAST SIX-YEARS – Obama has had his way with everyone in government, who were too COWED to stand-up to this POLITICAL MONSTER.
BUT NOT NETANYAHU . . . who cares far more for the SECURITY of Israel and the SAFETY of his citizens, and the Jewish People Worldwide, than he could care LESS for Obama’s LEGACY, which by the way has already been written in stone, as Obama being the worst and most damaging President in American History.
I cannot remember, NOT EVEN ONCE, when the Republicans actually stood up to Obama without BLINKING . . . NOT ONCE!
It goes beyond the PALE, to the extent that Obama, Valerie Jarrett, John Kerry, Joe Biden, the entire Democrat Black Caucus, and the substantial LEFTIST Jewish American LOBBY to STOP Netanyahu from speaking.
The American LEFT is TERRIFIED, that once Obama is exposed on his own turf, for the EMPTY SUIT that Obama REALLY is. And that the world won’t stop because someone stood up to this MOST UN-AMERICAN American – THE FLOOD GATES WILL OPEN.
TELLING A SITING PRESIDENT TO SHOVE-OFF . . . in the most public way possible, isn’t just some little thing. IT IS EVERYTHING.
And if TINY Israel, which is so dependent on the MOST powerful country on Earth, can look Obama in the eye . . . and effectively tell him to BUGGER-OFF, what message is that to the rest of the world?
From what we seem to know about Obama’s past, everything had been handed to him on a silver platter, EVEN the Presidency. And because Obama has always been surrounded through his public life by an opposition of COWARDS, he got away with everything.
BUT WITH THIS UP-YOURS FROM NETANYAHU . . . that game is now over, making this the BELL Obama and his Toadies can NEVER UN-RING, rendering all of them, for all the world to see, as the EMPTY SUITS they have always been.
And that’s how important Netanyahu’s speech will be to the Joint Session of Congress in addition to Iran.
