A fateful trip

By Lisa Fabrizio
web posted April 27, 2009

Only mere months into the Obama presidency and already my head is spinning. Massive chasms of debt, class warfare in the streets, government takeovers of private industry and servile shows of 'respect' to foreign dictators, have occurred with lightening speed. And because of the treachery of a handful of Republican Senate moderates, nearly all attempts to block this agenda are dead on arrival.

And now, out of this nightmarish whirlwind comes word that those who love the founding principles in this country--life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness as protected by the U.S. Constitution--and worse, those who put their lives on the line in defense of same, are considered not only extremists but now, even terrorist material.

It's not so much that a bunch of pointy-headed liberals over at the Department of Homeland Security thinks that conservatives are dangerous to the country they would foist upon us, it's the addle-brained conclusions that they draw; like linking white-supremacists to abortion opposition.

This would come as news to the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, a woman who was the best friend racist whites could ever have, insofar as reducing the minority population is their common goal. After instituting a "Negro Project" in 1939 and dispatching clergymen to disguise her intent, she wrote to a colleague, "We do not want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten that idea out if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members."

But it's the slander against our veterans that really takes the cake. The DHS report mentions that "rightwing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize returning veterans in order to exploit their skills and knowledge derived from military training and combat." Their lone proof of this is that Timothy McVeigh, who carried out the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995, was a veteran. This brilliant logic comes from the same folks that won't associate in any way countless terrorist acts across the globe with the religion of peace they call Islam.

Yes, my head is spinning. It's like one of those TV shows where the premise is so ludicrous yet the solution to it so obvious, that it makes you want to bang your head against the wall. Kind of like a Gilligan's Island, where you're surrounded by nincompoops with no hope of escape or rescue.

Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale,
Of truth, love and liberty;
That started with a Glorious Cause
So people could breathe free.

King George was a mighty sovereign,
His redcoats brave and true;
Against them stood the Minutemen
Who donned the Buff and Blue.

The battle raged for eight long years;
The Delaware was crossed.
If not for the spirit of the Minutemen
The nation would be lost.

The Founders thanked the Lord above,
And felt their efforts blessed;
They knew that a government that governs least
Is one that governs best.

Then storms of change blew all around,
The winds grew cold and stiff;
The U.S. Constitution's now
A fragile paper skiff.

And so our country's upside down,
Awash in perversity;
The children of our Minutemen
Are now the enemy!

Our government has just declared
These folks who won't obey:
The NRA, and Christians too;
Those millionaires, and their wives;
Abortion foes, and freedom-loving veterans,
Must be taken away.

No guns! No God! No rule of law!
Or state sovereignty!
Like President Obama, it's radical as can be.

So welcome to the USA,
We're sure you'll want to stay,
Unless you're on the Right and then:
It's Guantanamo Bay! ESR
