PRIORITIZING NATIONAL SECURITY THREATS
Posted by Andrew Roman on May 8, 2010
Who have been the stone and brick throwers? Who have been the ones chaining themselves together in circles in the street blocking traffic? Who have been the ones vandalizing businesses? Who have been hurling bottles at police? Which protestors have been regularly resorting to violence?
Tea Partiers? Or illegal immigrants and their supporters?
Who have taken to shooting up military installations and opening fire at recruiting stations on American soil? Which group of people has attempted to blow up Times Square, Los Angeles Airport, the Brooklyn Bridge and several in-flight airplanes? Which people are hell-bent on murdering innocents?
Tea Partiers? Or Islamist terrorists?
Before you venture to answer that question, you probably ought to check with Democrat Congressman Andre Carson from Indiana. In discussing Tea Partiers who had gathered in Washington to protest Obamacare, the following exchange took place with a reporter on March 20th:
REPORTER: Do you think the people outside are dangerous?
CARSON: Oh, absolutely. I worked in Homeland Security. I come from Intelligence, and I’ll tell you, one of the largest threats to our internal security – I mean, terrorism has an Islamic face – it really comes from racial supremacist groups. This kind of animosity, it’s the kind of thing we keep a threat assessment on record.
REPORTER: From groups like this?
CARSON: Oh absolutely.
This is the same man who, when asked to enumerate America’s greatest threats, listed racism and terrorism … in that order.
Racism, in the world of Andre Carson, is at least as serious a threat to national security as are Islamist terrorists and illegal aliens.
And he means it.
According to Carson, the threat to this nation’s security posed by Tea Partiers cannot be overemphasized. He should know. After all, he was in Intelligence … so to speak.
This is example 12,917 of why liberals (and other children) cannot be trusted with national security.
And speaking of fear mongering … Let us not forget that President Barack Obama – the unifier, the great orator and soother – rewrote Chapters 2 through 5 in the Little Fear Mongerers Companion and Workbook when he said:
You can imagine if you are an Hispanic American in Arizona, your great grandparents may have been there before Arizona was even a state, but now suddenly if you don’t have your papers, and you took your kid out to get ice cream, you’re gonna be harassed. That’s something that could potentially happen. That’s not the right way to go.
And no one – no one – in the mainstream gerbil cage has the avocados to challenge him on such an absurd and irresponsible statement.
It’s a disgusting lie, Mr. President.
A disgusting lie, Mr. Race Baiter.
…with all due respect.
