They Cannot Intimidate Us
The Obama Administration's newly rolled out anti-terrorist strategy is as purposefully vague as it is downright thuggish.
The 12-page strategy (PDF), which outlines ways to respond to violent extremism, promises that: "We will continue to closely monitor the important role the Internet and social-networking sites play in advancing violent extremist narratives."
Sounds eerily similar to the DHS' 2009 statement on right wing extremism, doesn't it?
Since all of us who are solely guilty of wanting politicians to exercise fiscal responsibility have been branded terrorists by all sorts of progressives from the Vice President to many congressional Democrats - not to mention the media types - I am willing to bet that we are the "terrorists" the Administration is referring to.
The aim obviously is to intimidate and squash anti-Obama rhetoric ahead of the coming elections but once again they are miscalculating badly. You see, intimidation requires the other side to be fearful. We have nothing to be fearful of from mere mortals. They are not God; neither are they dictators as much as the President might want to be as his speech just the other day referred to the "messy democracy" not letting him accomplish the change he promised as a candidate as fast as his supporters might want.
The Alinskyite and union thug tactics may work on some but I and every other patriot I know will tell you the same thing, Mr. President: Don't play with fire unless you want to get burned! This is not a threat, but a promise that we will hold all public servants responsible who aim to destroy what America stands for as spelled out in our founding principles. No one can limit our liberties, which include our rights to free speech and protest as we see fit, let alone a pathetic group of Marxists like the thugs that dominate today's Democratic party.
Our principles and our resolve are far firmer and than your Marxist ideology!
