We used to live in a free country, a United States where our rights and liberties were protected. It is no accident that the very first amendment in the Bill of Rights includes the right to free speech.
Not any more. Not under the brutal fist of the Obama Administration. Not only are government officials right and left denouncing the film that supposedly catalyzed the Islamist attacks on our embassies and nation, but there is a massive effort to shift the focus in America away from the abysmal foreign policy of Barack Obama and toward Mitt Romney and the creator of the film.
Hillary Clinton: “To us, to me personally, this video is disgusting and reprehensible. It appears to have a deeply cynical purpose to denigrate a great religion and provoke rage.”
General Martin Dempsey, who recently threw Israel under the bus:
The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, spoke by phone this morning with Pastor Terry Jones. In the brief call, Gen. Dempsey expressed his concerns over the nature of the film, the tensions it will inflame and the violence it will cause. He asked Mr. Jones to consider withdrawing his support for the film.
Meanwhile, the media savaged Mitt Romney for stating the obvious truth, that the Obama administration's first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks. But then, the MSM has never been interested in the truth; they have a clear agenda in running interference for Obama, and anything, anything they can twist and manipulate to that end they will pursue.
So the upshot of the last 24 hours has been the concerted attempt by the Obama Administration, its allies and the media, to suppress free speech, whether it be a film that makes Muslims angry, or a speech by Mitt Romney in which he speaks the badly needed truth that Barack Obama will do anything to hide.
The rightful guardians of free speech, our government and our military, have abandoned this core American principle for one reason and one reason only: to protect Barack Obama by redirecting attention away from his failures.
Egypt might still be on our side if Obama hadn’t signaled Islamists that he was sympathetic to them rather than confronting them. The entire Arab world is now being militarized against America. All because, just as with Jimmy Carter, the president of the United States is afraid.
And in his fear of the Muslim world, he and his media darlings must ruthlessly suppress free speech here at home. It’s a frightening and terrifying future we face if this man is reelected. And nothing the media, or Obama’s minions, or Obama himself can do should ever, EVER distract us from the paramount American need to replace him with someone strong enough to defend us in every way.
