Obama’s latest message in a speech to the graduating class of The Ohio State University: Ignore and reject those who warn of tyranny in our ‘brave’ government.
It’s a common thread throughout the talking points of government heads today, warning you of ‘dangerous’ individuals who dare to question the government that Obama calls ‘brave’ and ‘creative’. We’ve seen it with the FBI, asserting that you should not be looking at anything beyond the official photos and information released on the Boston bombings. Just questioning why no one is talking about the presence of bomb squads, bomb drills, and even the bomb drill that was broadcast over the loud speaker system is not allowed.
Or how about asking why taxpayers continue to fund mega banks that have been caught funding Mexican drug cartels and Middle Eastern terror cells? Woops, we’re not supposed to ask about the 83 billion that the banks get annually thanks to the taxpayers.
“Unfortunately, you’ve grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity… They’ll warn that tyranny always lurking just around the corner. You should reject these voices. Because what they suggest is that our brave, and creative, and unique experiment in self-rule is somehow just a sham with which we can’t be trusted.”
Asking Questions Is No Longer Tolerated
On a scale never before seen in this country, asking reasonable questions of the government is simply not tolerated. And what’s amazing is that in many cases we’re not even ‘theorizing’ or concluding anything. We’re literally just asking questions that any individual really analyzing these situations would want to know. But Obama simply cannot have that, because legitimate questions like ‘why are we funding the mega banks who fund the drug trade and terror cells’ cannot be answered with any ounce of truth (or else the jig would be up).
Even Google has released a post on the skyrocketing levels of government censorship on the web, detailing how governments around the globe are now demanding that the internet juggernaut literally censor content that is critical of government and government officials. Right now, in fact, over 24,000 thousand pieces of content that apparently ‘criticize’ the government face complete obliteration from Google at large. Only time will tell if Google falls under government pressure and decides to begin open elimination of this content and usher in an entirely government-controlled engine in which only pieces that praise Obama and the government at large are allows to be seen by researchers.
The fact that someone in Google decided to author a post on the subject is a step in the right direction, but we need vocal outrage now in order to prevent such a scenario. That said, we also need to ask the questions they absolutely do not want us to ask.
I Have Some Questions to Ask
Personally, I have more than a few such questions. And knowing that my work is likely among the thousands of content pieces that the government would love to send down the memory hole, I believe it’s time to be louder than ever when asking. From the countless lies spoken during and after the elections that have amounted to dozens of broken promises that somehow are supposed to be forgotten, to much more serious issues like the NDAA and the renewal of the memorable warrantless wiretapping legislation known as FISA.
But according to Obama, this all goes into what makes his policies ‘brave, creative, and unique’.
