When will liberals see?

Only days ago, Obama gave a speech in which, rather than warn us against tyranny, he warned us against the people who go around warning us against tyranny.

The IRS revelations only get worse: From the Washington Examiner yesterday (via Ed Morrissey this morning), we learn that the IRS demanded of a pro-life group – under “perjury of the law”, the IRS staffer’s words – that it not engage in legal Planned Parenthood picketing. And required another pro-life group to furnish detailed plans on its constitutionally-protected speech activities.[1]

This is the same IRS that Obama has been beefing up to enforce Obamacare by demanding ever-greater private information of citizens.

The AP snooping scandal speaks for itself. Now from the GP comments, V the K reminds us of something Obama said in 2008:

We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.

Video here.[2]

In these disparate data points, I see a pattern: Obama wants to be a tyrant – while pretending not to. My question is, do liberals really not see the pattern?

I know that some liberals have begun seeing it – and will, for example, condemn the IRS actions – but others don’t. The other day, I noted Julian Bond saying that he thinks conservative groups deserve the IRS harassment. The execrable Bill Maher has joined the fun there.

Obama maintains his democratic pretense by periodically declaring the goodness of his intentions. For example: yes, the other day he called the IRS actions “inexcusable”.

But a troubled President Nixon, as well as actual tyrants like Chavez and worse, also frequently declared their own goodness. So many of Obama’s other words, policies, and actions of his underlings point in a direction opposite to his self-declared goodness. Do liberals really not see? Or are they part of the pretense; de facto pro-tyranny?

[1] (I don’t know the ins and outs of these tax-exemption laws, but I thought that as long as a group would refrain from electioneering for parties/candidates, it would get a pass.)
[2] Students of history will note that the Fascists also believed in having powerful civilian, national security forces, and will be troubled by the weird applause that Obama’s liberal audience gave him for proposing it.



  1. Ms. Lerner personally approved a tax free exemption to Obama’s half brother charity in one month, while progressive organizations got their tax free status on average at the nine month mark. For conservatives, it is often years if granted at all.

    Now that the AP has been shilling for Obama for years and Obama is now snooping on them, we will see if the press finally sees the President for what he is: a paranoid man who doesn’t like dissent at all.

  2. I asked a friend the other day, after posting the study that shows there has been no statistically significant warming for seventeen years, how many years does there have to be no warming for you to admit you are wrong. She basically said, she would never believe there has been no warming. This liberal group doesn’t believe in any god except Obama. So when you say, “Hey, here I am standing on Mount Olympus, and there ain’t no Zeus anywhere about.” They must respond, “He doesn’t want you to see him, because you don’t believe.”

  3. Just remembered, the Obama administration also targeted Gibson (guitars) while leaving Martin alone, because Martin supported Obama and Gibson didn’t.

    I’m dying (OK, not really) for an Obama supporter to show up and call the post insane.

  4. It isn’t about truth or principles or freedom or any of that with liberals. It’s about political power: It DOESN’T MATTER or as Swillary said, “What difference does it make?” As long as they think they have their place at the trough and get more slop than the Republicrats, they’ve accomplished their goal. It doesn’t matter what Obama does, it doesn’t matter what Swillary or Kerry or any of them do. If Obama killed three Ethiopean children and ate them for breakfast while driving a jeep through Libya with their dogs strapped to the top and then cut the food stamp program entirely to divert the money to AIG, it wouldn’t matter to the “liberals” because a “liberal” did it.

  5. Is it just an incredible coincidence that the IRS only targeted opponents of the Obama Regime?

  6. When will liberals see?

    A few liberals will become former liberals. But only a few.

    Look at the Democrats who are mum, only objecting around the edges, “troubled” and so forth. They are waiting out the storm. They are liberals today and will be liberals tomorrow.

    The raw FBI files in the Clinton White House and the Rose Law Firm Records magically appearing in the White House solarium and Fast and Furious and John Edwards and throwing phony medals over the White House fence and Gore stretching for billionaire status on the wisp of consensus science and so forth does not impact the drive for socialism. Those “problems” are, in words from Barry, just bumps in the road. Like the four dead guys in Benghazi. But that was a long time ago.

    The liberals won’t look. Or, when forced to look, they can’t see. Did you watch the House hearings involving the whistle blowers? After the liberals did their little tap dance, they drifted out of the room. They weren’t there to hear or see what they did not hear or see by not being there. That is how the liberal machine works. Shift. Ignore the facts. Blame. Name call.

    Just today Nancy Toadlosi is claiming that all the IRS problems stem from Bush employees. That is all the liberals need to hear. Any port in a storm.

    Obama can not be impeached. He is black.

    Hillary can not be sullied. She is a woman.

    Maybe Holder will take a dive and pop up next to Podesta at the Center for American Progress. His ideological twin will take his place at DOJ. No problem. Corruptocrats protect the cause.

    The liberals will never see. It does not benefit them to see. They only see the goal and will use any means possible to reach it.

    The IRS stuff stifled the TEA Party and held them back effectively during the 2012 election. Obama won. Next page.

  7. Most liberals don’t want to see, because in their hearts they don’t really see anything wrong with tyranny as long as it’s leftist tyranny.

  8. Its funny that a satire website pens an Obama supporter almost perfectly.,32462/?utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=SocialMarketing&utm_campaign=standard-post:headline:default

  9. Check out the article at The American Spectator about the union that runs the IRS and their president. That pretty much explains it in my mind.
