Dictators Pose with Children, Take Away Gun Rights
The recent press images of Barack Obama surrounded by children at the Newtown memorial service were just a warm-up.
White House Dossier reported the President will pose with schoolchildren from across the country on Wednesday. The agenda? Obama will announce his sweeping new gun-control measures designed to get this administration much closer to restricting Americans' Second Amendment rights.
Obama now joins other famous dictators who used innocent little ones as tools of propaganda. At the same time Joseph Stalin was conducting widespread purges and starving millions of peasants through collectivization, he was pictured as a benevolent "Father of Nations" laughing and smiling with angelic looking children.
On December 30, 1936 at the height of Stalin's murderous regime, the trade union paper portrayed him as Grandfather Frost, the Russian Santa Claus. Children love Santa Claus.
Keep that image in mind and compare it to Obama's remarks to "naughty" Republicans just before Christmas. From the LA Times November 30, 2012:
President Obama cast himself in the role of Santa Claus during a visit to a toy factory Friday, suggesting that Republican lawmakers should get only a lump of coal in their stockings if they don’t work with him this month to extend tax cuts for the middle class...I’ve been keeping my own naughty-and-nice list for Washington.
Using children as propaganda to further your totalitarian ends is diabolical. And after today’s midday press conference about the possible 19 new executive orders Obama plans to issue, we’ll know how far into people’s privacy this government will go.
What will background checks entail? Will they become tools to amass a database of innocent non-criminals who happened to get caught in the system through no fault of their own?
Will doctors and counselors of mentally ill patients be required to report all clients’ names to the government so that new sweeping background checks will be matched to those databases? Will there be no more such thing as the traditionally sacrosanct doctor—patient relationship?
There are so many ways our government has already invaded our private lives. The new gun restrictions are the next phase in the roundup of all the usual suspects under a Marxist regime—law abiding citizens.
The right to own and bear arms represents individual freedom to protect oneself against someone who wishes to cause us harm. If this right is taken away, we will be another Soviet Union.
"A dictatorship is a country that does not recognize individual rights, whose government holds total, unlimited power over men."—Ayn Rand 1964
