Things have changed.
Tuesday night laid bare the sea change in America. If you haven't heard O'Reilly and Hannity and Rushbo ad infinitum ad nauseum talk about it then you've been asleep. Or watching reality TeeVee. But I repeat myself.
Over the last four years the focus of IBA has been shifting, not intentionally, but shifting nevertheless. The threat Barack Obama posed to this Republic was too great to ignore and much of our focus shifted from the counter jihad to his policies.
Now it seems the threat is coming from our fellow Americans as well.
It's not, as we thought, that Americans are willfully blind to what is happening. It is that they do not care what happens as long as they get their cut. Their free phone. Their food stamps. Their gas bill paid. And no one interrupts their watching American Idle or reading the latest rags about the ever so important Kim Karbooboom.
from an email from Pastorius:
Never have I felt so abandoned in my entire adult life. I do not believe we live in America anymore. We live in "America". And, I now believe a very large portion of my fellow "Americans" are my enemies.In the city I live in, our police dept. beat a 135 pound homeless schizophrenic man to death. Six cops on one man.Our whole city rose up against the police dept and attended protests and city council meetings and got out the vote to get rid of 3 of the 5 city council members who were supporting the police dept.But nothing is being done YET because of the unions.
The city I live in is a college town. The unions are very strong.
I now realize that the blue collar, men of courage, salt of the earth americans, firemen, policemen, teachers, are all pigs at the trough. These "liberals" are not willing to stand against their union to call for the ouster of the police chief who oversaw the murder of the homeless man and who oversaw the attempted coverup.
This is what I mean by my fellow "Americans" are my enemies.
This event that happened in my city has made me understand intimately why Obama was elected.
Mitt is right about the 47%.
Where AOW lives, it is even worse. Washington DC is now a three state metropolis of government workers and a economy entirely based upon government pig slop.
And no one has the courage of their convictions to stand up and say it is wrong.
It is for this reason that I now consider myself a DISSIDENT against the "American" government.
Things have moved on, and frankly until or unless there is another act of mass terror on the homeland I expect that encroaching pressure from muslim lands and philosophies, financial and commercial pressure from abroad, Israel, Iran, NATO, Japan, Korea and all of that will take a very back seat in the USA. It won’t even be resisted because people will be otherwise concerned. We have another kind of war going on here now. Not only have we reached the tipping point of 50% in terms of consumers of govt largesse, but that also means that majority will acquiesce and support the perceived arms of the govt, and the govt itself in order to keep on receiving those benefits.We will never even BEGIN to do the things we need to do as ‘infidels’ if we cannot first do them as americans.The America we understood and loved, IS GONE.
1. Valerie Jarrett is or has been leadin high level talks with Iran2. The U.S. is now backing new U.N. arms treaty talks.3. John Boehner, the alleged leader of the loyal opposition, has declared Obamacare the law of the land and has no intention of opposing it any further.
If you thought things were weird before stick around.
We're not going anywhere.
