The Irony of Obama's Fear

It appears that Barack Hussein Obama - that champion of Community Organizers - is frightened by the prospect of Conservatives doing the same. It has historically been very easy for the Left to march toward their goals because they faced no resistance from their opposition.

Conservatives never actually got together before to act on their displeasure with the Socialist advance that has been going on in this country for decades, mainly because they were too busy building their lives, families and ultimately, a nation. Now, however, with the Left poised to topple and ruin all that Conservatives have toiled to accomplish, the gloves are off.

Barack Hussein Obama was in Austin, Texas on August 9th to deliver - yes, another - speech to a friendly audience at a Democratic National Committee (DNC) finance event, and after a rambling diatribe that opened his remarks by blaming his predecessor and the Republican party for our current ills, finally got to his attacks on a group of ...Community Organizers. He called out the organization Americans for Prosperity (AFP) because they have had the audacity to oppose his agenda, and he did it by name.

Ironically, Obama worries that we who donate to AFP really don't know who they are and he claims that all the Democrats have asked for is disclosure. Funny how we never knew where all of Obama's campaign money came from, yet he still wants the other side to "fess up", a notion that prompted his heinous rebuke of the Supreme Court at his State of the Union Address. If he's worried about how we spend our money, I have a laundry list of advice for him, but that's for another time.

For anyone with the stomach to read through it all, the full text of Obama's Austin speech is here. For an excerpt of his attack on AFP, I have mercifully provided it below:

Right now all around this country there are groups with harmless-sounding names like Americans for Prosperity, who are running millions of dollars of ads against Democratic candidates all across the country. And they don't have to say who exactly the Americans for Prosperity are. You don't know if it’s a foreign-controlled corporation. You don't know if it’s a big oil company, or a big bank. You don't know if it’s a [sic] insurance company that wants to see some of the provisions in health reform repealed because it’s good for their bottom line, even if it’s not good for the American people.
Now, this may shock some readers but it must be pointed out that - ahem - Barack Hussein Obama is lying. A simple perusal of the Americans for Prosperity website clearly states "Who We Are" and "What We Do". For an ideology that screamed for freedom of speech and civil liberties throughout the Bush administration, this crowd sure seems eager to shut us up, from the Tea Parties to talk radio to grass roots organizations like AFP. Why?

The answer couldn't be clearer. Barack Hussein Obama and the other points of The Triad - Pelosi and Reid - know that the clock is ticking. They know that the other team has the ball and is about to score, and score big. They know that the guys with the white hats are coming for them and they are terrified. And the most amazing aspect of this is that we have mobilized as we have in such a short time. That speaks volumes about just how devastating the policies of these Leftists have been.

It also speaks loudly to the threshold of the American peoples' tolerance for socialism.
