The contempt for ordinary Americans displayed by the ruling class is reaching critical mass. There may never have been a time in American history when the governing, academic, cultural, and media elites have been more manifestly disdainful of the countrys values, traditions, principles, and people.
Individuals who express sincere concerns that the polices and practices of the elites are imperiling the nations economy and security are branded as racists and xenophobes by the anointed: A diminutive mayor who appears to conflate a talent for acquiring wealth with omniscience lectures that anyone who opposes the erection of a mosque on the site where 2,700 Americans were slaughtered by radical-Islamic terrorists must be motivated by religious intolerance; tea-party activists who protest the federal governments insane spending spree are motivated not by horror at a $13,300,000,000,000 debt but by racial animus toward the chief fiscal incontinent residing in the White House; those who voted to maintain the central institution of civilization were actually voting for bigotry and oppression.
The same elites who lecture incessantly refuse to listen to the racist rabble populating flyover country. They have no problem listening, apologizing, and bowing obsequiously to our declared enemies, but insist on acting imperiously toward their fellow Americans.
When thousands flooded town-hall meetings to express opposition to Obamacare, they got Obamacare shoved down their throats. When twenty states sued, calling Obamacares dictatorial provisions unconstitutional, legal elites scoffed that the Commerce Clause permits the federal government to compel the unenlightened to eat their vegetables. And when 71 percent of Missouri voters rejected the abominable bill, Robert Gibbs proclaimed that the vote meant nothing.
Its certainly evident that it was, indeed, nothing to the ruling class. That class will pass a 2,000-page, $800 billion spending bill without even reading it. They will redistribute billions from disfavored groups to favored constituencies.They will rack up ethics charges like frequent-flier miles. They will take over giant car companies and financial institutions despite never having run so much as a pop stand. They will drop missile defense and open our borders because weve been on the wrong side of history all these years. They will shut down oil drilling in the Gulf, thereby sacrificing the livelihoods of thousands, without any empirical justification whatsoever. They will abandon our nations allies and embrace our enemies for no other reason than that its a different policy than George W. Bushs. They will prosecute Navy SEALs but wink at the release of convicted terrorists. They will exhibit galactic ineptitude in cleaning the Gulf but assure us they can completely reorder the economy in response to the non-debateable evidence of global warming. They will raise our taxes so that our comparatives in the federal government can be paid twice as much as we are. They will sue Arizona for doing the job they refuse to do themselves. They will grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants by bureaucratic fiat. They will tell us what light bulbs to use, how much fat we may have in our diets, and how much water we may have in our toilets . . .
Theyll do this because theyre smart. They went to the best schools. And they agree with Rep. Pete Stark that the federal government can do anything.
Perhaps in the recent past, with a compliant, JournoList-infected media providing cover, they could do anything. Not anymore. Americans have had enough.
Average citizens are showing remarkable levels of engagement more than in 1994. They seem to actually like America. They will fight against spending the country into bankruptcy. They will fight against erosions of our freedom. They will fight against slow-motion surrender to our enemies. They will fight against corruption of our values. They will fight for whats best about America.
This is a fight about first principles. Ill bet on the great unwashed.
Do they give each other a secret handshake when they are at the job interviews?
This can not just be coincidence.
This was so good I wondered, who the heck is Peter Kirsanow?
that writer would be a great speech writer!
awesome article...had me cheering at my keyboard...it is a KEEPER!
Indeed. Not a day goes by without some new outrage handed to us by the "educated experts" in government who know far more than we do. It's time to heat up the tar and open the pillows: enough is enough.
These events should have been the "handwriting on the wall" that the Gov. was at war with 'we the people' of our country and surely not holding their oath to the constitution. But we will continue to see these happening until they are out of office.....there is no other way to stop this.....this administration is deaf to the people and see us as only something to bypass and doing so no matter what laws or harm they do in the process.
Great points throughout.
The liberals have such disdain for the people. You can see that in issue after issue. Whether the issues are taxes and spending, Obamacare, same-sex marriage, where to build a mosque, the liberal ruling class denigrates the opposition. They just don’t have differing opinions, instead, name-calling and insults are their calling cards.
We are all xenophobic, homophobic, and full of “hate” if we deign to question the decisions and policies of the liberal ruling elites.
They are very much into the one-liner put downs. If you oppose or even question a mosque at ground zero, you are bigoted, racist, intolerant, etc. If you oppose or question same-sex marriage, you are homophobic, intolerant, etc. On any issue, the liberal view is that opponents are hateful and that’s why they oppose the liberals. In truth, it’s the liberals who spew hate when these debates get underway.
He'll never get work in this town.
Where this town = New York, LA, SF, Chicago etc.
Neah. Its incest.
The Liberal Elitists took overs during and after the Vietnam War. They stayed in college to avoid the draft, etc.
Nowadays, when tenure hearing come up for a professor, they check publications for “political correctness.” If he’s on the right (Left) side of various arguments, he’s in. If he’s not, or if there is no paper trail, its a lot harder.
We are headed straight for a civil war. The first, not the second................
In 2006 & 2008, the libs won. Why? Because we have a wishy-washy fickle, unreliable and uneducated electorate who vote on sound-bites and emotion all shovelled out by the far left axis of propoganda; MSM, Academia and Hollywood.
The far right and the far left are well grounded in their beliefs and voting patterns, but the vast unwashed voters in the middle are the folks who set the stage. These are our worst enemy. they can’t be counted on to do the right thing.
The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.
“The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.
“The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.
That appeared in a Czechoslovakia newspaper. I am not the author.

Liberalism was hijacked in the 60’s by this current pack of scoundrels, and perverted from their true beliefs into this current “I know better than anyone else” mindset that has infected them all.
They think they know better than anyone, and nothing is beyond their corrupt, prying fingers. Educational techniques that worked for thousands of years? Pish tosh, they know better, and they’ve destroyed education with their idiocy. Society? They know better than what made us strong and confident and stable as a nation, and gutted it all with “free love”, “no fault divorce”, guilt-free abortion, and redefining marriage. Raising kids? They know better than the parents going back millions of years knew, and have been raising generations of monsters who only care for themselves, and think the world owes them anything their heart desires. Media? It’s been gutted, the standards that made our journalists respected were thrown out the window in favor of activism. Even things like movies reflect their weak and pitiful minds - not content to allow past works of the masters stand, they dare to take (steal) and “remake” and “revisualize”, throwing in political correct pap and stink and taking out what made the material great in the first place (and rewrite history when they can).
You name it, the liberal mindset has eaten away at it like acid, perverting and destroying as they go, throwing tantrums when anyone tries to clean up after them, and fix things.
Look at our nation, with ghettos in every city growing by year, a failing media, a destroyed economy, our kids dumb and getting dumber, college kids who have been told that growing dreadlocks and drum circles are a perfectly fine way to go through college - and are rewarded for them, parentless children, millions upon millions hooked on mood altering drugs, entire cities dependant upon liberal do-gooders who insist minorities cannot get ahead unless a white liberal helps them, massive debt, rotting society, rising crime, criminals who know liberal judges will just slap their wrist and feel sorry for their bad childhood, lying is commonplace and rarely subjected to censure, manners are a thing of the past, no guilt for ANYTHING,...and it’s all from the people who hijacked liberals in the 60’s and so corrupted their own party, they actually believe the nonsense they spew.
