When I saw this item on Alex Jone’s Infowars website, I thought, This can’t be right. So I looked up the article, ‘Un-American’ attacks can’t derail health care debate, on USA Today. Sure enough, there was the oped piece by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and fellow Dumbacrat Steny Hoyer. The piece is hilarious in the fact that they go down the list of Comrades who claimed from 1912 that Americans wanted health care.
“We believe it is healthy for such a historic effort to be subject to so much scrutiny and debate. The failure of past attempts is a reminder that health insurance reform is a defining moment in our nation’s history — it is well worth the time it takes to get it right. We are confident that we will get this right,” they write.
“However, it is now evident that an ugly campaign is underway not merely to misrepresent the health insurance reform legislation, but to disrupt public meetings and prevent members of Congress and constituents from conducting a civil dialogue. These tactics have included hanging in effigy one Democratic member of Congress in Maryland and protesters holding a sign displaying a tombstone with the name of another congressman in Texas, where protesters also shouted ‘Just say no!’ drowning out those who wanted to hold a substantive discussion.”
These disruptions are occurring because opponents are afraid not just of differing views — but of the facts themselves. Drowning out opposing views is simply un-American. Drowning out the facts is how we failed at this task for decades. The rest of it goes on to tell how “affordable” taking billions more taxpayer dollars from you is when you are moving into the street because you cannot afford to own your house any longer. It is not, apparently, un-American to prevent “opponents” of health care into or to beat up activists outside of the town hall meetings.
Bear in mind, now, that these are the same people who were all over Bush for saying that protesting the war was un-American.
So, I asked myself, Just what is un-American? Sometimes I have to ask myself because there is no one around. There must be some source that we can look to determine what could possibly be considered un-American. I know, let’s examine the Constitution! That’s the document that makes you a domestic terrorist if you refer to it. You’ll have to look it up because it is a little lengthy to list here.
No where in the Constitution does it give the power for Congress to regulate arms of any kind—including firearms. In fact, there is a little addition that prevents that. They had to dig deep to come up with the Interstate Commerce Clauses. So, it must be un-American to pass gun control laws of any kind. If you read Federalist Paper #29, you can confirm this. There is an addition that prevents the Congress from writing legislation regarding religion. It is against the Constitution for the Supreme Court to make legislation. They are only allowed to consider whether certain laws violate the Constitution. Therefore, the separation of Church and State is un-American. The Constitution does not say that the Congress can steal your money to “pay” for your “free” health care. It does not say that they can steal from your paycheck to give you a little back after age 62 while they hope that you die before you can draw out all you put in. So, Social Security must be un-American. The Constitution specifically requires the Congress to deal with the money matters of the United States. Therefore, the Federal Reserve is un-American. The list goes on.
And who is sponsoring all of this “good stuff?” The comrades of the Democratic party. It does not take a big leap to realize that the Decmocratic party of today is un-American. Of course, if you simply read the Manifesto of the Communist party, you would know that.
Now that does not mean that Bush was right, or that Repugnacans are any better. They have not ripped out their unconstitutional twist on the Fourth Amendment nor has Obama ripped out the secret spy network that he chided Bush about.
There are a few Democrats and Republicans that are trying to vote for the Constitution, but they are few and far between.
I reserve, for you, the right to choose what you call un-American. I already know. Feel free to post a comment to this article on what is un-American.
