President Obama, announcing the official start of hurricane season on June 1st, declared: “All of us have seen the heartbreak, the damage and, in some cases, the loss of life that hurricanes can cause. And as climate continues to change, hurricanes are only going to become more powerful and more devastating.”
The powerful, pandering, prognosticator further pontificated: “One of the things that we have learned over the course of the last seven and a half years is that government plays a vital role, but it is every citizen’s responsibility to be prepared for disaster. And that means taking proactive steps, like having an evacuation plan, having a fully stocked disaster supply kit. If your local authorities ask you to evacuate, you have to do it. Don’t wait.”
I prepared for disaster seven and a half years ago, Mr. President.
And, unfortunately, I was proven right. You’ve trashed the country far more than any hurricane ever did. You’ve blown away the Constitution and eviscerated many people’s sense of responsibility and accountability, making them dependent on government and willing to do whatever authorities tell them to do.
Incredibly, the president made these remarks at a time when the United States has gone over a decade- 127 straight months- without a major hurricane making landfall, a record span. But we know that facts don’t matter to progressives-Marxists. Or to climate change fascists, for that matter.
It seems the more the facts argue against their outlooks, opinions and preferred plans of action, the more aggressively they try to impose them on dissenters or “deniers.” Those on the left have to get their way. They may claim to love pure democracy and preach tolerance above all things, but they despise both, the country rubes in fly-over territory, and anyone that has the unmitigated gall to disagree with them.
Tragically, leftists know that ignorant, meek and (deliberately) misinformed people will eventually believe what they say- facts be damned- if they just repeat it often and loudly enough. They likewise know that a coerced and unprincipled people will do what they are told to do, right, wrong or indifferent.
