Is Barack Obama about to suffer the fate of Diomedes?
In the Greek Myth, Diomedes is fed to his Mares which he trained to dine on Human flesh.
The Greeks had a penchant for Irony and Unintended Consequences.
The metaphor seems apt in light of newly discovered actions by the IRS. It appears that Obama supporters employed by the agency decided to target Conservative groups… for years. They used the power of the agency in an attempt to intimidate and ultimately destroy their ideological opposition. (It’s worth noting that they considered their opposition to be those teaching the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights to the masses.)
While the IRS revelations are only one of several problems this current White House is experiencing, it is an important one as it lends credibility to those who have warned of an over-reaching and oppressive government. A concern which to date has been answered with the accusations of paranoia and hysteria from those in the Media and the White House.
For the record…
I will go as far a stating that I do not believe President Obama directly instructed those in the Internal Revenue Service to conduct themselves in such a manner. On the contrary, these people were predisposed to behave this way. These individuals have had a constant diet of “the ends justifies the means” in regard to promoting their Socialist Ideology because of the “fairness and equality” they believe it’s implementation will result in.
The President did not need to direct them… as he spent a better part of his life Teaching them how to behave this way. All that needed to happen was an overt message of complacency from the Attorney General’s office when it came to politically motivated crime. And, without fail, this was delivered to them by AG Holder when he intentionally did not prosecute the Black Panthers for voter intimidation. It was a big, and well publicized, demonstration of the AG’s ability to apply discretion in regard to what laws would be enforced.
In the End, the “Constitutional Law Professor“, the Community Organizer, the Smartest Man to have ever occupied the White House could become the victim of his own design.
The Socialist “Low Level Workers” are motivated, and have believed themselves to have a pass to do as they wished. Considering the Progressive power struggle entering the 2016 Presidential race it would not surprise me if more skeletons are not thrown out for public consumption.
But validating the fears of all “The Crazies” out there cannot ultimately be good for Liberal politics… unless they are going to, once again, try to run as Fiscal Conservatives like they did in the 90’s.
Regardless… I say let the carnage begin!
Stin iyia mas!
