Had Enough?

I sure as hell have.

“The contempt for ordinary Americans displayed by the ruling class is reaching critical mass. There may never have been a time in American history when the governing, academic, cultural, and media elites have been more manifestly disdainful of the country’s values, traditions, principles, and people.

Individuals who express sincere concerns that the polices and practices of the elites are imperiling the nation’s economy and security are branded as racists and xenophobes by the anointed: A diminutive mayor who appears to conflate a talent for acquiring wealth with omniscience lectures that anyone who opposes the erection of a mosque on the site where 2,700 Americans were slaughtered by radical-Islamic terrorists must be motivated by religious intolerance; tea-party activists who protest the federal government’s insane spending spree are motivated not by horror at a $13,300,000,000,000 debt but by racial animus toward the chief fiscal incontinent residing in the White House; those who voted to maintain the central institution of civilization were actually voting for bigotry and oppression.”

If you don’t read anything else today, read the rest.

  1. Hear! Hear! I read this yesterday on NRO and immediately forwarded to my friends. I just hope he’s right. I have never seen our society so…WEIRD. But, that POS, carter, brought us Ronald Reagan. Who knows what this round will bring…

  2. As long as it brings a vastly smaller government I’m all for it.

  3. What I fear? After the November elections, people will think they’ve done enough, and then go home and forget about it.

    Elections aren’t going to cut it, and both you and I know it.

  4. Thanks for the head’s up on the reading material, Jimbo. I fear Dick is right, though.

  5. It may take some General with guts and a desire to honor his Oath Of Service to solve this “problem”. Arrest the whole bunch and charge them with treason.

  6. It’s a truly sad day, JerseyJerry, if the American people won’t defend the Constitution on their own but would rather rely on a military strongman to do so on their behalf. Judging by history, that sort of thing doesn’t usually end well.
