Piers Morgan and New York Mayor Michael Bloombergs want to be dictators and slave masters. Regulating a person’s diet is the regulation of a person’s life. Here was Morgans response to a guest who disagreed with him on sugary drink control:
I think people need [these types of laws] occasionally, particularly on issues like smoking, drinking, guzzling sodas too big for them, you know, eating 16 Big Macs a day, whatever it may be, the reality is we all need a bit of nannying about that. Thats why so many people are on diets. Thats a form of nanny state.When governments pass laws that force people to eat a certain way in the name of this is good for you and society, they are not being nannies. They are being dictators and slave masters.
Once you go down the road of forced good intentions, there are no stop signs along the way. Today its sugary drinks; tomorrow dictators will want to tell us where to live, the jobs we should have, the friends we should associate with, how to spend our money, and what we can say.
In fact, weve already gone down this road. Watch what you say or youll be cited for hate speech. The money we earn is not really ours. When government dictators determine by law to exempt some of our income from taxation, thats a sure indicator that the government believes it can claim all our income. We could take it all, but weve decided to exempt some from taxation.
The Democrats have just proposed $1 trillion in new tax confiscation because they believe it’s their money to spend. We’re not capable of spending it in the right way.
Democrat Nancy Pelosi said: Tax cuts are spending. . . . They are called tax expenditures. Spending money on tax breaks. And thats the spending that we must curtail as well.
Taxation is never sold as being bad for anyone. Its always for the greater good. The same is true for laws governing speech that is said to make people uncomfortable or is defined as hateful.
How many times have we heard liberals pontificate over how they are pro-choice? One of the favorite pro-abortion slogans is, Our bodies, our lives, our right to decide!
Being pro-choice is only legitimate if a woman wants to kill her pre-born baby. But dont ever propose this slogan: Our bodies, our lives, our right to decide what to eat and drink!
Its one thing if well-concerned people put campaigns together to help people make good dietary choices. Im all for it, as long as (1) they pay for it, and (2) the government doesnt force anybody to comply.
There was a time when blacks were said not to be capable of freedom. They needed the security of slavery because they couldnt make the right choices on their own. Slavery was said to be necessary for them. Here are two examples of how slavery was often justified:
Piers Morgan and Mayor Michael Bloomberg would fit right in with the slavery arguments of the past. We need masters to force us to behave a certain way because some people arent capable of making good decisions as we see them. Slavery is alive and well in America, and it does by the name liberalism.
“Piers Morgan: People Need Dictators and Slave Masters Occasionally
And occasionally dictators and their useful idiots need to be hanged from lampposts.
There has been no event more distressing to the elitists in the 21st century than the Libyan civil war in 2011. As much as some here deny the Libyans their victory, the UN/Soros/Obuma/NWO elitists freaked out after their buddies were hanged from lampposts on the streets of Tripoli.
The Libyans dragged out the general of the army into the town square and blew his brains out. They attacked Kaddhafi’s elite southern mercenaries and killed them in the streets, hanged them from lampposts and burned down their towns.
This freaked out the UN elitists. Hillary wanted the Libyan militias and army deserters to stand trial for killing her buddies.
The Libyan civil war made it known to the Soros/UN/Nazi elitists that they might not survive a revolution. They are terrified by the Libyan example.
Abortion is a choice
Smoking is murder
But then again, if government and your fellow taxpaying citizens are paying for your healthcare what you eat drink and do becomes everyone’s business. It’s our money.
Welcome to the Brave New World of “public health”.
Thanks for the ping!
