It’s frightening to watch emboldened progressives in the era of Obama. Before, liberals at least had to pretend and hide their bigotry. Now it’s out there for the whole world to see. Obama’s leftists in government are leading the way.
The abuse suffered by conservative groups at the hands of Internal Revenue Service, at the behest Obama administration flunkies, shows the level of contempt, disdain, and apathy liberals in government have for those with whom they disagree. In a memo, unearthed by a House committee, IRS operatives in Washington D.C. targeted the Tea Party and other conservative groups, knew the action was illegal and tried to cover it up with new regulations that would codify their illegal targeting as official policy of our government. We have seen that extremist liberals favor and support using our government to target their political opponents. New York Senator and all around thug, Chuck Schumer, stood before the press and openly called for this illegal targeting.
Senate Democrats, facing tough elections this year in the wake of their support for the destructive Obamacare law, want the Internal Revenue Service to crack down on so-called “outside groups,” expected to spend millions of dollars to hold these same politicians accountable in November.
These extreme left-wingers, who now run government, feel they’ve been given the nod to treat conservatives unfairly because Obama and his Democrats have referred to us as “enemies,” “hostage takers,” “people with bombs strapped to their chest,” “arsonists,” “terrorists,” “anarchists,” “racists,” and “EXTREMISTS.”
The liberal’s ideological bigotry doesn’t stop with government.
An ultra-liberal group, the NAACP, had one of its representatives refer to GOP Senator Tim Scott, a black man, as a ventriloquist’s “dummy.” The “Reverend” William Barber, director of the North Carolina NAACP, didn’t stop there. On a recent conference call Barber said of the GOP, “They frantically seek out people of color to become mouthpieces for their particular agenda.”
This form of ideological bigotry is unacceptable in America. The very idea that one’s ideology is formed by the color of one’s skin is dumb, offensive and runs counter to the message of a genuine civil rights leader, the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King.
Dr. King said, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
Mr. Barber needs to be reminded that people of color are capable of making up their own minds as to which ideology fits their own circumstance and upbringing. I can assure Barber that we have the knowledge, intelligence and for the time being, the freedom, to choose our own path.
The “mainstream” press has been silent on liberal efforts to institutionalize unfairness against conservatives. Liberals’ efforts to replace racial bigotry, with the chains of ideological bigotry, are contemptible. Our heritage, culture and value as citizens are in no way changed by our political beliefs. No legitimate government uses its power to silence dissent. All people of good will should reject the message of hate and division pushed by Obama, Democrats and other extremist progressives.
