Remember – dissent was patriotic when it involved accusing the Bush Administration of knowing about 9/11 in advance or siding with the terrorists who killed Americans. But if you seek answers about how a US ambassador was killed in a terrorist attack and why the Obama Administration consistently lied about the events surrounding the Benghazi terrorist attack and you are un-American, according to Barack Obama’s hand-picked head of the Democrat National Committee, Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
”It is irresponsible and un-American, quite frankly, for my Republican colleagues in Congress to be jumping on this immediately as a political opportunity,” said Wasserman Schultz.
Not only that – she declared questioning the government to be out of bounds, even in the face of patently false statements that subsequent developments have shown are not only false but were known to be false when they were made.
“Piers, it is not OK for you to be saying that the administration was putting out false information,” said Wasserman Schultz.
Never mind that the Obama Administration knew within hours that the attack in Benghazi was unrelated to the YouTube video about Muhammad but was instead a terrorist attack but still blamed the video for the attack. Never mind that there was no demonstration in Benghazi, even though the Administration claimed for two weeks that the attack was just a demonstration that got out of hand. Never mind that there was specific intelligence in advance of the attack warning of the attack that was ignored by the Administration as it cut back on security. You have no right to claim that statements that are documentably false – and which it is documented were known to be false when they were made – were in fact false, much less accuse the Obama Administration of intentional deception and outright lies! So says Obama’s personal political commissar.
After all, Obama is a Democrat.
And he’s black.
And criticism of him is not just political opportunism – it is probably racist, too. Just give Debbie time to start making that claim as well.
