Following the wildly successful War on Christmas nonsense pushed by the Christian right to scare their followers into opening their wallets, Allen West has now discovered a war on the 4th of July, or rather a war on Independence Day because people are calling it the 4th of July.
I’ve noticed something as it relates to today and that which it represents. We’ve seen our move away from Merry Christmas to Happy Holidays, and even Happy Winter Solstice. We’ve become so damaged by the talons of political correctness that it now threatens the very existence of our Republic. And I mean its very founding.
I’ve been amazed at how people greet you with “Happy 4th of July”, as if we are celebrating a numbered date on the calendar. If this continues, there will be generations who will no longer know what happened on this day, other than we should have cookouts and shoot off fireworks.Today is our 240th American Independence Day, a significant day not just for America, but for the world.
He then says everyone should read the Declaration of Independence and lists some of the grievances against King George that he says applies to Obama today. Unsurprisingly, his arguments are ridiculous:
This is why today, I implore y’all to take the time to carefully read the entire Declaration of Independence and notice the parallels to the grievances then to today, such as, “He has erected a Multitude of new Offices, and sent hither Swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their Substance” – think IRS and other regulatory agencies.
All of which were established by acts of Congress, precisely as the Constitution requires.
And I love this one: “For imposing taxes on us without our Consent” – need I remind you there are twenty new taxes in Obamacare.
Again, passed democratically by Congress according to the procedures laid out in the Constitution. Is he actually this dense or is he just a liar?
