Delicious Irony

On tax day, rational Americans were entertained by the “Tea Party” protesting an imagined “big government” or “socialist takeover” and taxes when federal income taxes were reported to be at their lowest in 60 years. Now to show their steadfastness against Obama’s agenda on the anniversary of the battles at Lexington and Concord, Rawstory reports,

The gun-backers’ “Restore the Constitution” rally is set to be the first armed protest in a US national park, held at Fort Hunt and Gravelly Point, Virginia, locales run by the National Park Service. Their target? President Barack Obama and his agenda, health-care reform, climate control and bank bailouts.

It turns out, however, that it’s President Obama who actually made their rally possible. In May 2009, he signed a measure allowing Americans to carry guns in national parks into law.

These people though never protested during the greatest assault on the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and even during the taking away of the writ of habeas corpus during the Presidency of George W. Bush. That’s a good thing for them in that not only would you be arrested, you couldn’t even wear T shirts derogatory to Bush or even campaign buttons of political opponents such as Kerry supporters found out and protestors were either arrested on bogus charges or put into “free speech zones“. Journalists covering protests such as at the RNC Convention were arrested on bogus trumped up charges. Truth be known, if you put the Constitution and a roll of toilet paper in front of these people, they probably couldn’t tell the difference.
