During the 2008 campaign, then candidate Obama promised to “fundamentally transform America. Remember?
Welcome to Barack Hussein Obama’s fundamental transformation of America. We are now a nation of almost daily violence and Obama and his administration are doing what they always do – not wasting a crisis, as Rahm Emanuel likes to say.
A crisis like the Boston Marathon bombing was far too tempting an opportunity to waste on niceties like Search Warrants. Besides, what’s the 4th Amendment among Fundamentalist Transformers? It’s really nothing more than a suggestion.
This shocking video shows Obama and his police state are willing and able to trample the rights of law abiding citizens when the laws get in their way. The house in this video was not the one the terrorist was hiding in, nor was there any reason to believe he was there. This was just part of a door to door search. No warrant, no permission, not a thought in the world of the rights of the citizens they held at gunpoint.
After watching that disturbing video, is it reasonable to say these people were indeed terrorized? Not by the bomber, but by the Gestapo tactics of “Law” enforcement.
The people behind this deprived these people of their rights to unlawful search and seizure. And they are the same ones promising that the new proposed gun laws will not take away our Second Amendment rights!
This video betrays their intentions.
For most of these people, the search for the bomber was far more terrorizing and life altering than the event itself. And if they resisted the unlawful search can you imagine the consequences?
Benjamin Franklin said “They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety”.
I can think of no clearer example of Franklin’s words than this video.
But the thing is, these people did not give up their Liberty. It was taken from them by force. And force is always necessary to fundamentally transform a free people into slaves and subjects of the Government.
No matter how justified you might think these Government thugs were in searching for a terrorist, and no matter the danger of this killer being at large, it simply does not justify taking these people’s rights away by force.
The government thugs behind this reprehensible and illegal search are now far more concerned with the rights of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, as are the “Mainstream” Media. As the LA Times opines:
Over the weekend, Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder Jr. gave every indication that he intended to have Tsarnaev questioned without the Miranda warning. We have to hope that didn’t happen. The Constitution is not like a deck chair, to be brought out in good weather and then put away and ignored when the seas get rough. Tsarnaev is entitled to the same constitutional protections as any other criminal defendant.
And the same concern for the rights of the terrorist are echoed throughout the media.
But not a single soul in the Liberal Media has spoken out against the Constitution being treated like a “deck chair” with the innocent home owners and terrorized citizens in the homes raided by Obama’s Jack Booted Brown Shirts in the name of “public safety”.
The most terrifying thing I can think of, even more so than terrorist bombs, is allowing the government this much power. Because it will only lead to even more power and the complete revocation of all Liberty.
The terrorists are criminals.
The innocents were their victims. And the same innocents were victimized a second time by the government.
That cannot stand.
There is not much we can do about terrorists who are intent on harming us. Some will inevitably succeed.
But there is something we can do about being victimized a second time by the government and I hope the victims of the government terrorism will use the court system and the Constitution to make sure all the terrorists are held accountable for their crimes – including the government.
