There's nothing wrong with bullying if you have an Obamawaiver

Phil Boehmke

With union thugs busy bullying reform minded lawmakers in Madison, Indianapolis, Columbus and other flashpoints in the battle for fiscal sanity, Barry and Michelle launched a new initiative against bullying in our nation’s public schools. 


Having been bullied because of his big ears, funny name and red diaper, the future former president who would be king is sensitive to the long term effects of bullying on impressionable children.   Here’s an idea; maybe each school should have an anti-bullying program administrator to oversee an anti-bullying program staff, how’s that for (public sector union) job creation?

 

Mr. Obama, I too was bullied in the public schools that I attended, although in my case the bullying was mostly administered by incompetent teachers and principals due to my well- proportioned ears and resistance to socialist indoctrination.   

 

With bus-loads of bullies having been organized by OFA, the AFL-CIO, SEIU and other more stealthy subversive groups to intimidate and threaten the free practice of representative government, one would get the idea that some forms of bullying are being encouraged by the Obama regime.  Of course other than publicly taking sides with the public sector unions against the taxpayers, Mr. Obama has remained on the sidelines quietly cheering on his cadre of bullies and issuing Obamawaivers for their behavior. 


In spite of vicious death threats, which could well be perceived as contrary to the Obama doctrine on civil political discourse, the bully in chief has issued no statement on the matter.  In fairness, the regime has been busy looking for ways to turn the Japan earthquake and tsunami into a favorable bounce in Mr. Obama’s poll numbers.

 

In the twisted realm of Obamaland, where the planets orbit “The One,” contradictions between imperial edicts and imperial conduct are to be expected and should be anticipated. Obama allies and their shock troops are all eligible to receive the coveted Obamawaivers, which guarantee their right to do anything they please as long they act in accordance with the will of the regime.  On the flip-side, enemies of the regime will have to pay for their insolence in defying the leader.

 

Even as terrorists and illegal immigrants enjoy resort-style accommodations on the tax-payers dime and are given full protection against the sort of bullying that is being promoted against reform-minded legislators in America’s heartland, one lone soldier is being bullied in a military prison.  Enter the case of Pfc. Bradley Manning, WikiLeaks informant poster boy. 


According to the New York Times, top State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley has spoken out about the “ridiculous, counterproductive and stupid” treatment that Manning is being subjected to while in detention.  Mr. Obama responded to the allegations of bullying:

 

“With respect to Private Manning, I have actually asked the Pentagon whether or not the procedures that have been taken in terms of his confinement are appropriate and are meeting our basic standards,” Mr. Obama said at a news conference.  “They assure me that they are.”

 

Basic standards for terrorists and illegal immigrants held in detention include, TV, music, full library privileges, climate controlled accommodations, dance lessons, top notch cuisine to name a few of the perks provided at tax-payer expense.  However for an enemy of the regime like Manning, whose leaking of documents has been a major embarrassment to the Obama Administration there are different standards.

 

Starting on March 2, Private Manning was forced by guards at the Marine Corps brig at Quantico, Va., to sleep without clothing at night, though he had a blanket and in recent days has been given a “tear-proof smock” to wear at night, according to a Defense Department spokesman, Col. David Lapan.

 

Is Private Manning being bullied?  His ears seem to be of average size and he doesn’t have a funny name, so I’m not sure.  There are questions about his sexual orientation, so maybe he is being bullied, but since he embarrassed the Obama regime an Obamawaiver appears to have been issued.  Case closed.

 

Of course the leaking of secret government documents (like any other tact of treason or terrorism) should be prosecuted with full vigor regardless of the sitting administration and the conditions in detention should provide for only the most basic needs of the prisoner as provided by law.
