President Obama: Sometimes Tyranny Does Lurk Around the  Corner

 

 

 

President Obama made the following commencements comments about tyranny to  the graduating class at Ohio State University on May 5, 2013:

“Unfortunately, you’ve grown up hearing voices  that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister  entity that’s at the root of all our problems. Some of these same voices also do  their best to gum up the works. They’ll warn that tyranny always lurking just  around the corner. You should reject these voices. Because what they suggest is  that our brave, and creative, and unique experiment in self-rule is somehow just  a sham with which we can’t be trusted.”

It’s always the other guy who’s the tyrant. Did Adolf Hitler present himself  as a tyrant? He believed that he was doing the best thing for his people. The  trains ran on time, there was prosperity, and the people had a renewed hope for  Germany. It was all a setup for a tyrant.adolf-hitler_tyrant

How about Josef Stalin? Benito Mussolini? Mao Zedong? Pol  Pot? Idi  Amin?

These men would never have considered themselves to be tyrants. In fact, if  you accused them of such a thing, you might find yourself in a concentration  camp, gulag, or on the trash heap with a bullet in your head.

Do you think these men enticed people to follow them by revealing to them  that they would establish political tyrannies? They made promises to the people.  That’s why they were put in power. Hugo Chavez was a tyrant that the people of  Venezuela voted for.

Would Barack Obama have spoken out against Stalin or Hitler before their  governments degenerated into full-orbed tyrannies? Would the President have  supported the Polish Solidarity movement over against the Communist  tyranny?

Would he have joined the 52 singers of the Declaration of Independence?  Here’s the opening paragraph:

“When in the Course of human events, it becomes  necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected  them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and  equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a  decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the  causes which impel them to the separation.”

 In fact, the signers of the Declaration described the king of England  as a tyrant:

“The history of the present King of Great Britain  is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object  the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let  Facts be submitted to a candid world.”

Considering what the War of Independence was fought over, our nation can’t be  anything less than a full-blown tyranny.

Consider this second in the list of Facts against the King:

“He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of  immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his  Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to  attend to them.”

Consider the following letter from Attorney General Eric Holder that was sent  to Gov. Sam Brownback on April 26th in response to a new law in  Kansas that prevents government agents from enforcing federal gun laws in  the state:

“In purporting to override federal law and to  criminalize the official acts of federal officers, [the law] directly conflicts  with federal law and is therefore unconstitutional.”

Second Amendment

The Second Amendment prohibits the Federal Government from forbidding people  in the various states from “keeping and bearing arms” for “the security of a  free state.” It is the duty of the states to protect its citizens against the  usurpation of their constitutional rights.

Ours is a slow moving tyranny. An iron fist in a velvet glove.
