If Ignorance Is Strength....

Then Chairman Obama can bench three times his body weight for three sets of ten. Want proof ? He recently said this at Hampton's commencement:

"You're coming of age in a 24/7 media environment that bombards us with all kinds of content and exposes us to all kinds of arguments, some of which don't always rank that high on the truth meter... and with iPods and iPads; and Xboxes and PlayStations -- none of which I know how to work -- information becomes a distraction, a diversion, a form of entertainment, rather than a tool of empowerment, rather than the means of emancipation."

I could be snarky and say my twelve year old daughter is smarter than the President of the United States. After all, she's 12 and she uses iPods, XBOXes, and Playstations without a hitch. However, this column is not about Chairman Obama's lack of "mad skillz" on Madden and Mortal Kombat, this column is about how his Chairmanship views a well informed voting public.

How much more Orwellian does this need to get ? In the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, the people of Oceania were kept in the dark by the Ministry of Truth, whose sole purpose was to dumb down Oceanians by manipulating the media. (I think Party Member Olbermann ran the show.) Chairman Obama apparently wants the same thing. His ultimate goal is to turn us all in drones that drool and say "Yes We Can" while genuflecting to the recycling bin. Chairman Obama wants us to believe every bit of psychobabble that oozes from the pores of PMSNBC and The HuffingtonandPuffington Post. Of course, any opposition to his schemes is verboten. Or, at very least, it's ungood.

I think the Founders would have been very fond of the Internet. (Could you imagine how cool Benjamin Franklin's blog and site would be ? He'd have a really Twitter handle, too, like Freedom1776) When the Founders look down at us and see us Internet Patriots hacking away on our laptops, I know they're proud. We're following in their footsteps. We're looking at the nonsense that's being spewed by Chairman Obama and his Merry Band of Socialists and screaming "Bullsh--!" at the top of our collective lungs, just like they did when King George decided to tax them willy nilly. The Founding Fathers did not want us to be drones to an ever expanding behemoth-like federal government. They wanted us to question authority with boldness and with vitriol, if need be. The freedom of the American people was most important to them, not the thin skin of a Failed Messiah.

If Obama and his pals at the O-stapo want to shut down the Internet, fine. I'll write this column by hand and nail it to a tree. If Cass Sunstein, the thinkpol czar, wants to infiltrate my Twitter followers, that's fine, too. I'll say what I want. I'll resist in any and every way that I can. No, it's not because I'm a racist, Teabagging, Nazi, homophobe who doesn't recycle. No, it's because I'm an American and it's my duty to do so. I understand, as an American citizen, that two plus two doesn't make five, it makes four, regardless of what the Big Mommy Regime says.

Dark days are coming. Ignorance will soon become strength if we let it.

God help us all.
