In the very recent past, Mr. Maher stated that he was jealous of the dictatorship in China because they could get things done and didn't have to answer to the demands of the stupid people, which, according to Maher is virtually anyone who doesn't see things his way. He even suggested that Obama, our own poor darling struggling with the entanglements and inefficiencies of a constitutional republic, should just "drag them to it." You know, the stupid people. That would be you, kittens.
So how, Mr. Maher, do you suppose one might "drag" others to anything without a fair amount of force? Once you advocated for the powers of a dictatorship and its concomitant violence to gain your way, you are no longer believable when you wear your shocked face at a government that does just that. You don't get to get to look at what happened in Watertown during the apprehension of the second bombing suspect and say, "It's ridiculous. It's outa control."
Of course it's out of control. Power always goes out of control.
How did our government GET out of control? And under whom is it out of control? The sitting president of the United States is Mr. Peace Prize who stated categorically that he wanted a police force that was as big and powerful and well-funded as the entire US military. Well, you didn't even blink. You elected him. You armed him. You egged him on. You wanted him to "drag" people to your way of thinking.You wanted him to act more like a dictator.
So now he's using this force the way he wants to and it's not the way you think he should. Tough. The guy with the guns gets to decide who to shoot, stupid.
Remember, Mr. Maher, when the reality of a police state is fully implemented, you wanted this. You asked for it.
You just thought you could ride the lovely, heady, intoxicating power to smash and/or "drag" all the stupid people to your way of thinking. Turns out the stupid person here is you.
