Because, like Mitt Romney, we believe it's hip to be square
Being decent has its drawbacks—just ask Mitt Romney. The New York Times dedicated two pages in last week’s Sunday edition to his lack of cool, jeering the Governor’s “1950’s language” and “Gomer Pyle routine” for being “old timey.” We beg to differ. American values are not fickle; our core beliefs are not seasonal like Baskin Robbins’ flavor of the month.
For that reason, we are poking an eye at the stereotypes of conservatives and dedicating our WEEKLY MEME MASH to images that celebrate our gosh-darn exceptionalism as well as satirize the critics of "old timey" American culture. Because, to quote Huey Lewis, we believe “it’s hip to be square.”
Rush Limbaugh was listing his theories on why Benghazi-gate happened. He offered reasons such as the cover-up for lack of security at the consulate, that the deaths gave lie to the Obama narrative that Al-Qaeda has been irreparably damaged or he also opined it was just a cover up of Obama’s lack of interest. It could easily be a far more sinister reason.
The Fast and Furious program, now a scandal, was designed to intentionally sell U.S. guns to Mexican drug gangs. Those guns, they knew, would ultimately be used to kill people in Mexico and the United States. With proof of U.S. guns, sold by American gun shops to drug cartels, the Obama administration would have the evidence they needed to start controlling gun sales in border-states. Obama said as much in a 2009 speech in Mexico. But, guns are easily transportable, so the ring of gun restrictions would ultimately have spread across the U.S. If it had not been for some untimely murders and a few, now harassed whistleblowers, it could have succeeded.
Instead of disinterest, could the White House have seen this “unfortunate bump in the road” in Libya, as an opportunity? Former Obama advisor Rahm Emanuel once said “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.” I’m not suggesting the Obama administration set this up. Logistically that would have been impossible, but following the Saul Alinsky principle of letting no crisis go un-utilized, could the anti-Christian Obama White House have seen the death of our ambassador as yet another way to suppress Christian free speech? read more »
