Being a student of history, I know that Woodrow Wilson had Americans jailed for speaking out against him and his policies. I also understand there is a direct ideological connection between Obama and Wilson. So, naturally, when I noticed a recent trend of public figures speaking out against Obama (or government in general) only to immediately retract or say they ‘regret’ their statements, I wondered whether or not there might be some behind the scenes pressure being brought to bear on these people. I am specifically reacting to this story:
Which was followed shortly by this one:
(Something is telling me there was actually a third story similar to these this month, but I can’t recall he details at the moment)
I understand that Obama supporters, and even people who like to think of themselves as ‘reasonable,’ will think I am drawing connections where there are none, but I would disagree. One has to understand the type of people we are dealing with: they never do their real work out in the open. They do that behind the scenes while presenting a different face to the public (which might help explain why so many of our political leaders have college connections to friends who went into acting). So we are left to look for indirect signs that explain what we see in public. In this case, we have several.
First, when the Left came out and said similar and even more hateful things about Bush or Bush’s policies, there were seldom any retractions or expressions of regret. So we can dismiss any claims of decency being the motivating factors here.
Second, these people are actually correct about what they are saying. Obamacare is fascistic and tax policies in this nation do exceed the realm of decency and morality. So we can dismiss any claims that these people were wrong about their opinions.
And then we have this:
Tiger Woods admits he left California because of high tax rates after rival Phil Mickelson apologizes for saying he may quit West Coast
• Tax increases were approved by California voters back in November
• Tiger Woods, who is worth $600million, said he ‘understood’ why Mickelson might be planning a move from West Coast
• Woods lives in $80million estate in Palm Beach, Florida
Yet, Woods neither retracted his comments, nor was he attacked for making them. And that is or best indicator as to what is going on here. As a minority, Woods is protected because he is assumed to be an Obama supporter and because he is a minority. This is a sad commentary on the state of our society, but it offers the best explanation for the trend I have observed in our public figures who dare to speak out against our dear leader, Obama. But this is just my opinion. I’ll leave you to decide yours for yourself.
Gee, it wouldn’t be that we hate ‘the rich’ in this nation today, would it? Or that we now use government the law and policies to oppress them?
