Great moments in Leftist oratory

George Orwell, 1984:


Nancy Pelosi, on the unreasonableness of the democratic legislature process:

But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of controversy.

Barack Obama, on the occasion of his 2nd inauguration:

Preserving our individual freedoms ultimately requires collective action.

Mommy! I’m scared!

    “My good friends, for the second time in our history, a British Prime Minister has returned from Germany bringing peace with honour. I believe it is peace for our time. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Go home and get a nice quiet sleep.” – Neville Chamberlain, spoken outside 10 Downing Street, Sep. 30, 1938
    “We will support democracy from Asia to Africa; from the Americas to the Middle East, because our interests and our conscience compel us to act on behalf of those who long for freedom. And we must be a source of hope to the poor, the sick, the marginalized, the victims of prejudice – not out of mere charity, but because peace in our time requires the constant advance of those principles that our common creed describes:  tolerance and opportunity; human dignity and justice.” – Barack Obama, Inaugural Speech, Jan. 21, 2013

    Barack Obama says: peace in our time requires the constant advance of those principles that our common creed describes:  tolerance and opportunity; human dignity and justice.
    Which common creed is this man citing?  Where is “freedom and liberty” in his list?  Where is “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”?  Not that I’m against tolerance, opportunity, human dignity, and justice.  I’m just not familiar with one of our “common creeds” specifying that exact list.
    Could someone identify the common creed of which he speaks?  Or did he pull that particular list out of a stinky orifice?

    Mike, the words Obama used point to implementation of Sharia. He is talking about not offending the fragile egos of Muslims and he is talking about curtailing of the freedom of speech. Fuck him…he is no president and anyone from our military who follows this liar breaks their oath.


    Before 2008: “Hope and change”
    After 2008: “Elections have consequences and I won.”
    Before: 2012: “This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility,” Obama told Medvedev.
    After 2012: “The Muslim call to prayer is one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”   


    While half of America was busy Monday watching or avoiding Washington…
    Dateline Davos: January 22, 2013
    All you need to know in a few words:
    $14 Trillion dollars.
    Global economy/Global warming.
    Drum roll…
    Proposal that governments use public money to give guarantees, insurance and incentives to potential low-carbon investors at the same time as phasing out fossil fuel subsidies.

    “Preserving our individual freedoms ultimately requires collective action”
    Taken by itself and read literally, this is of course true: you can’t fight Nazis or Communists or whatever without an armed force which is inherently a group effort. 
    The problem is that Obama does not understand ( or does not want to admit) that group effort can occur…that almost all of the group effort that has built our economy HAS occurred…can be organized by voluntary cooperation rather than by top-down government edict.

    By collective action, he means SEIU thugs kicking in people’s knees that don’t obey.That kind of collective action.
