Sometimes I make the mistake of watching Morning Joe. I do it to see if I can get a handle on what the elitist, globalist, anti-American media message is at the moment.
This morning I caught a discussion by Joe Scarborough and cronies regarding Jon Stewart's appearance on Bill O'Reilly's show....on which show was some pretty silly repartee regarding whether or not Obama is a "socialist" or a "tyrant." Joe's show played clips from the O'Reilly show. Jon Stewart had some very clever come-backs saying if Obama is either of those he is totally inept because he isn't succeeding at being socialist or tyrannical. The clips show O'Reilly as completely unable to counter the assertions of Stewart. I'm not much of a fan of O'Reilly to begin with, but his lack of ability to throw that back in the face of Stewart with legitimate counter argument really makes me lose respect for him.
Normally I hear this nonsense on Morning Joe, shake my head, and try to get on with the day, but it occurred to me this morning that the conversation on Morning Joe is so convoluted that if anyone in America doesn't have a solid understanding of the word socialist or history, they would actually believe what is said. The people on Morning Joe's show this morning were trying to say the Tea Party people, those on the side of the Constitution, are too stupid to actually understand socialism and therefore are mislabeling Obama as such. Part of the argument was this; If Obama is a socialist, then how come he is bailing out Wall Street? Continued argument was; Rather than redistributing the money to the people, Obama has redistributed the people's money to the already wealthy bankers and hedge fund managers. I'm paraphrasing that, but that was the gist of it.
So, here I counter Jon Stewart's ridiculous assertions:
Socialism proposes to be a worker's paradise where all proceeds are shared equally. But in reality, it never comes close to that. Does Obama promote the redistribution of wealth? Yes. Has Obama set up an executive branch full of regulatory czars who usurp power from the people by going around the U.S. Constitution and Congress? Yes. Does that make him a totalitarian socialist tyrant? Yes. Has he vowed to enact government health care and cap and tax programs whether the people want those or not? Yes. Does he look inept by being unable to, so far, force those programs down the throats of the American people? Maybe.
But here's the deal...Socialism does exactly what Jon Stewart suggested Obama has done....it takes the money from the people and puts it in the hands of a few elite power brokers and bureaucrats. That IS Socialism. That IS tyranny. Read the definition below...
From Conservapedia.com "As a political ideology based on the redistribution of wealth, socialism stresses the privileges of the many over the rights of the few, but in practice when socialist economic principles are forced onto a nation by a totalitarian government a new Upper Class appears which is much better off than the Lower Class."
O'Reilly failed at exposing the socialist's favorite game...the Alinsky game of twisting the facts, targeting the enemy, and lying through your teeth. And then, Morning Joe just throws that out at the American public as if Jon Stewart won a game of "gotcha" with O'Reilly, as if to say the Tea Party movement in America is just a bunch of stupid dolts who don't know Stalin from Valerie Jarret. C'mon folks...they're playing with our lives here. The arrogance on the Morning Joe show is intolerable most every day...and is insulting to anyone with half a brain.
As I said, I watch it sometimes just to see what the enemies of America are saying on this day or that. It's a good thing to know what your enemies are saying. But it is a disappointing way to start the day.
