Erik Rush begins his Sept. 23 WorldNetDaily column by highlighting how angry people have become:
Even the reader who is new to this column will have observed the increased intensity of political rhetoric over the last two years. Prior to the 2008 election, voices warning against a Barack Hussein Obama presidency may have been background noise to the casual news consumer; after all, every candidate has their detractors.
Over the last 20 months, between the actions and policies of the Obama administration and developments that have taken place as a result of same, the background has become very much foreground. The machinations and designs of the administration have carried more urgency, and their words have become shrill. Likewise, terms like "progressive" and "socialist" have increasingly been replaced with "Marxist," "communist" and "totalitarian" by their opposition.
Obviously, if only a few fringe types were employing such potent terminology, it could be easily dismissed. With hundreds of thousands of Americans mobilized, millions blogging and organizing, an emergent arm of the press dedicating itself to stifling the momentum of this government and even some conservative Hollywood celebrities coming "out of the arsenal" to join their voices with these, however, the gravity of these expressions cannot be ignored.
Rush, of course, has been among the shrillest of the lot. However, likening Obama to a prison rapist is not exactly an "expression" that can be said to have gravitas.
Rush then freaks out that Obama signed an executive order that " officially adopted the Codex Alimentarius, a policy against which business interests have been fighting for decades? This one – a stealth proviso of Obamacare, by the by – is intended to bring access to all vitamins, minerals and natural health remedies and technologies under government control. This means that Washington can now classify all of these as 'controlled' – like prescription drugs."
The "Codex Alimentarius" is not some secret Vatican document referenced in "The DaVinci Code," as Rush seems to want you to think; it's a set of internationally recognized standards for food safety. Apparently, Rush thinks food safety is a bad thing.
Besides, the Obama executive order doesn't actually adopt the Codex Alimentarius. As the National Health Foundation points out, the executive order merely parallels standards established in the health care reform and "is not imposing Codex rules on the United States." The NHF notes that one section of the executive order references "science-based initiatives," which, according to the NHF, "could allow a smoother interface between domestic and international food guidelines at a small contact point that they might possibly have in the future." In fact, "It would be akin to saying that panty-hose manufacturing techniques are related to food because the nylon fabric might someday be used in straining soup."
But never mind, Rush is still in freak-out mode:
When what we eat, drink, drive, say, do for a living, how much money we make and where we live is dictated by our government, those who were dedicated liberal voters will grit their teeth because they're too arrogant to ever admit they were wrong. When pockets of the stunned, deluded variety of liberal voters finally put down their bongs and declare "Hey, man – you can't, like, do this to us! We have rights …" – they're going to catch a bullet in the head.
Small consolation this will be to patriotic Americans, since we'll already be dead or in a gulag by then.
To put it succinctly, our government is occupied by malevolent, treasonous slime, and it's going to take years to extricate all of them, even with a majority of Americans dedicated to the wholesale eradication of progressivism – which is an absolute imperative. This societal infection is so profoundly and fundamentally destructive that if I had my way, anyone willing to accept it would be stripped of their citizenship.
Yes, Rush has essentially said that anyone he disagrees with should be stripped of their citizenship. And how does he intend to achieve "the wholesale eradication of progressivism"? Bullets in the head, perhaps?
