On Monday, Teamsters union President Jimmy Hoffa, Jr., described the Tea Party and congressional Republicans as “sons of bitches” and called for a war against them.
Hoffa, a thuggish demagogue, worked up the crowd for Obama by saying:
“President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let’s take these sons of bitches out and take America back to where we belong … We gotta keep an eye on the battle that we face, a war on workers, and you see it everywhere in the tea party.”
Of course, Obama had only nice things to say about Hoffa. Obama’s recent call for civil discourse has been, Soviet style, conveniently dropped down the memory hole.
This call for war against the Tea Party has been conceived and orchestrated by the Obama administration. It’s the tried and true Alinsky tactic of isolating and demonizing a political opponent.
Obama is right to attack the Tea Party.
This grassroots movement is an existential threat to the liberal/leftist/progressive ideology to which Obama and his supporters subscribe.
More than ever, the Tea Party has clarified the fault lines in American society.
Once upon a time Americans elected governments whose job it was to protect the natural rights of the citizen. But now, under the relentless onslaught of the elite classes—deeply influenced by Marxist theory—Americans have been downgraded to supplicants, begging and bargaining with an all-consuming government over endless faux rights and fiscally unsustainable benefits that have become a cancer on the body politic.
As orthodox Jews, Seraphic Secret looks to the Torah for wisdom.
And the Torah does not talk about rights.
In fact, the Torah emphasizes responsibilities. Study the Ten Commandments. They are divided into individual and communal responsibilities.
Those pious British Christians who came to these shores to escape big government and religious persecution saw themselves as the new Children of Israel. So close was their identification with ancient Israel they seriously considered instituting Hebrew as the official language of the new world.
Our founders viewed government with a wary eye. They understood that government can, all too easily, evolve into an army of bureaucrats, isolated from the citizenry, seeking mainly to extend their power and influence.
Big labor has morphed into a government franchise, an ideological plantation working in lock-step with a centralized government. Thus Hoffa’s call for hatred and violence.
Let us be clear: Big government advocates seeking to build a welfare state.
Yet we only have to look at Western Europe to witness the fruits of the modern welfare state: streets of fire and financial ruin.
The Tea Party has awakened America to the dangers of progressive ideology. And that is why Obama and Hoffa have declared war on their fellow Americans, good and patriotic people who yearn for the freedom and prosperity that only arises from limited government
