You'd Better Believe This Is Obama's America

By David Limbaugh




http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Isn't it ironic that President Obama, having acquired the highest office in the land by agitating — all his political life — against privilege and discrimination, is now systematically wielding his executive power lawlessly to favor his friends and punish his enemies?

We are witnessing an unmistakable pattern from Obama and those under his command of establishing different rules for different groups of Americans. I'm not just referring to his opportunistic championing of the "poor" and his vendetta against the "wealthy" or his relentless vilification of "fat cat banks," big corporations, private jet owners and the insurance, oil, coal, natural gas and nuclear power industries. It goes well beyond that.

As Obama blames certain groups of people for America's problems, it follows that he would try to diminish their power and, in some cases, punish them for their past actions and present status.

If you dispute that, you must explain away his 20-year membership in a church driven by race-based get-even-ism; his reflexive condemnation of the Cambridge Police Department for arresting a friend of his, professor Henry Gates, and his leaping to the grossly premature conclusion that the arrest was race-based; his penchant for projection — prejudging people based on his distorted perception that they, as opposed to him, are uncomfortable with "people who don't look like them"; and his observation to supporters at a campaign rally inside a public high school during the 2012 presidential campaign that "voting is the best revenge." And that is just a sampling.

You'll also have to defend Obama's discriminatory actions and policies.

Consider his tenacious alignment with unions, forever overlooking their misconduct and granting them special privileges and protection.

He gave preferential treatment to unsecured union creditors in the Chrysler and General Motors restructuring debacles, to the detriment of secured creditors. His administration baselessly blocked Boeing from opening up a new plant with 1,000 new jobs in Charleston, S.C., when South Carolina was suffering from a 9.8 percent unemployment rate. He disproportionately allocated Obamacare waivers to labor union concerns.

How about the administration's lopsided allocation of stimulus funds to its political supporters? Its discriminatory retention of GM dealerships for minorities and women? The Justice Department's dismissal of an already-won lawsuit against New Black Panther Party members for voter intimidation — not because it lacked evidence, as it preposterously claimed, but because it adhered to an unwritten policy against pursuing voter intimidation actions when the alleged perpetrators were minorities and the victims were white?

Consider the Homeland Security Department's, under Obama's watch, designating "right-wing extremist groups" as potential domestic threats.

Ponder the administration's practice of punishing, after having promised to reward, whistle-blowers, from Gerald Walpin to Fast and Furious to the most recent flurry of scandals.

America, under Obama, is rapidly abandoning its commitment to ensure equal protection of the laws to all citizens, as opposed to only those who support Obama and his agenda.

How else do we explain the administration's orchestration of the jailing of a man for producing an anti-Islam video because it helped serve the president's dishonest narrative that the Benghazi, Libya, consulate attacks were spontaneous and not the coldblooded, premeditated actions of Islamic terrorists?

Or the more recent revelation that the Internal Revenue Service deliberately targeted conservative groups in their applications for tax-exempt status based on directives from Washington?

Or the shocking story hot off the presses of a soldier's facing retribution and punishment from the military for having anti-Obama bumper stickers on his car, reading books written by conservative authors Mark Levin, Sean Hannity and yours truly, and serving Chick-fil-A sandwiches at his promotion party? Only in Obama's America.

Despite all we know about Obama's personal attitudes, policies and actions and his capricious wielding of executive power to reward supporters and punish opponents, some die-hards maintain Obama is not to blame for the latest rash of scandals.

Well, if Obama was truly unaware of the IRS abuse, AWOL during the Benghazi attacks and the subsequent administration-orchestrated cover-up, and oblivious to the Fast and Furious gun-walking operation, the targeting of the media in the Associated Press scandal, the raiding of Gibson Guitar Corp., the witch hunt against Fox News reporter James Rosen, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius' alleged pressuring of companies within the regulatory ambit of HHS to donate, and the multitudinous scandals concerning Solyndra, exactly what does he spend his time doing?

If Obama wasn't behind those egregious episodes or was ignorant of them as he claims, then we have a right to know who has been acting as our president. If he didn't order them, then he undeniably fostered a climate that strongly encouraged his subordinates to implement them on his behalf.

It simply cannot be coincidental that Obama's underlings have pursued discriminatory practices that precisely conform to Obama's agenda and to his friends and enemies lists.

This is Obama's America.
