On this traditional communist holiday, President Obama declares Loyalty Day!

Out of 365 potential days of the year, our Dear Leader decided on today, May 1st, to declare as Loyalty Day in the United States.  Yes, Loyalty Day.

You know about May Day, right?  It has been used as a day of celebration by many different cultures, but in our day and age, the secular communists/Marxists out there use it as a day to parade their missiles and tanks down the street and call for socialist solidarity.

And President Obama just happened to pick this particular day as the day when we Americans should renew our allegiance to the U.S. government.

I'm not kidding - read his proclamation for yourself at the White House website, and check out some of the money quotes right here:
We have held fast to the principles at our country's core: service and citizenship; courage and the common good; liberty, equality, and justice for all... [The very first thing he mentions is "service"? Maybe I wasn't paying attention, but please show me where any of our founders talked about "the common good."]
We look back to Americans who did the same, from generation to generation -- citizens who strengthened our democracy, organizers who made it broader, service members who gave everything to protect it. These patriots and pioneers remind us that while our path to a more perfect Union is unending, with hope and hard work, we can move forward together... [Notice how he gives a shoutout to community organizers, and what is with this obsession of his of using the word "together"?]
I have a big problem with some of the language our government uses nowadays. For instance, I have never been comfortable with the use of the term "homeland," as in the Department of Homeland Security. And here is another one: Loyalty. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing untoward about the word itself. But when a government run by such people as Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, John Boehner, Dianne Feinstein, and Charles Schumer start trying to tell me where my loyalties should lie, I begin to perspire.

Yes 1st Anonymous: how dare he. The idea of Loyalty Day bothers me in the same way being compelled to pledge allegiance to the flag bothers me. Or calling an intrusive totalitarian legislation the PATRIOT Act - as if opponents of the law are not Patriots. Or again, the term Homeland Security. Obama may not be the first president to recognize Loyalty Day, but

A) he is observing it anyway instead of explaining to the American peoe that it is creepy


B) the content of his proclamation make it clear that his loyalties are not the same as my loyalties nor the loyalties of millions of Americans.

How creepy that you don't appear at all willing to question authority as long as your guy is in the Oval Office. I thought dissent was the highest form of patriotism. That's what I was constantly told when Bush was president.

Oh it sounds like you have quite a strong opinion. Obama's definitions of loyalty and common goo are quite different from that of the Founders I fear. That is a debate we could have. But if you are simply going to insult me I have better things to do.
All the best to you.

Knee-jerk? Someone apparently hasn't been watching the news lately. I unapologetically question the motives behind every single thing that man-child does. Question authority, right? Dissent is the highest form of patriotism, right?

W.R. Chandler said...

Guess we will have to agree to disagree as I don't think we are even speaking the same language, just as Obama is not speaking the same language as the Founders or anyone from the 1950s for that matter.

Yes I do teach history, and very well I might add. And since you have again reverted to insulting me, you are no longer welcome here. Adios.
