Tolerating Totalitarianism

Bill Wilson

The Founding Fathers knew that a free nation would only remain free if there was freedom of speech, especially as exercised by the news media. The First Amendment reads: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” The “press” prided itself in being the “Fourth Estate”–that non-governmental branch of the nation holding the government accountable, the watchdog of the people. The watchdog of the people has become a lapdog of the government, but that may be about to change.

The cozy relationship between the news media and the socialist left has enjoyed a long honeymoon since those nasty capitalist pigs were brought down by the Watergate burglaries, causing the resignation of President Richard Nixon. For decades the news media became more leftist, increasingly biased, and far more supportive of big government and dismissive of conservative constitutionalism. The lesson they are learning today is that government cannot be trusted and that it is healthy to have an adversarial relationship with politicians and government. This, evidenced by the Department of Justice secretly obtaining two months of Associated Press phone records during the 2012 campaign season.

This coupled with the Treasury Department’s IRS targeting the TEA Party, those who do not trust government, and those who sought to educate Americans about the Constitution. In other words, the nation’s foremost totalitarian agency where a person has to prove his innocence once accused, targeted and harassed those who espoused the founding principles of the nation. Moreover, the IRS lied to Congress in March 2012 denying that it was targeting TEA Party and Patriot groups. Add to this a concerted effort by this government to disarm Americans, partner with America’s enemies The Muslim Brotherhood and al Qaeda in its foreign policy endeavors, and artificially supporting the marketplace with tax dollars, and you have a totalitarian state in the making.

For all those who think that its just OK to allow this country to fall and we will just worship our Lord anyway with whatever comes with it, you
