“We have met the enemy, and he is us.” - Pogo
What’s more chilling than a people oppressed by a Hitler, a Mao or a Stalin? A people that voluntarily oppresses itself, a reality that has now afflicted America.
We have watched over the last 40 years as American women have gone — willingly in most cases — into abortion mills to destroy one-third of a generation.
We have seen speech codes pop up on college campuses banning any conservative expression, and watched as so-called hate crimes legislation appeared on the books as the law of our land, a dangerous precedent if ever there was one.
Homosexual special rights groups have foisted their hateful rhetoric on us and cowered many into agreeing to support a same-sex “marriage” agenda that will fundamentally transform this country into something so perverse that none of us will even recognize it in 10 years.
A shrinking number of Americans believe it is their right to keep and bear arms, even though their own precious Constitution guarantees it.
We have allowed our own government officials to spy on us, ostensibly to protect us from the very terrorists they have allowed into the country.
In short, self-engendered political correctness is destroying our Bill of Rights.
So should it come as any surprise that political correctness has so permeated the fabric of our society that a rodeo clown is now public enemy number one? I refer, of course, to the recent incident at the Missouri State Fair, where a rodeo clown dressed in a Barack Obama mask dared to make fun of the president of the United States.
Rodeo clowns are there to distract the bulls and to entertain the crowd, which is exactly what this clown was doing. He appeared in the arena, wearing the Obama mask and a broomstick protruding from the rear of his pants. Meanwhile, an announcer — apparently another clown with a wireless microphone — asked the crowd if they would like to see the Obama clown run down by a bull. The audience cheered enthusiastically. Video of the event has since gone viral on the Internet.
