“White House ‘secede’ petitions reach 675,000 signatures, 50-state participation”
Mostly emblematic as a protest — few believe anything will come of it, though I signed all that I could find — but there’s an equally emblematic counter-protest happening around the movement, and that can be epitomized by this:
Late Tuesday a second group of Texans, this one from Houston, lodged their own White House petition. Secession-minded Texans, they wrote, “are mentally deficient and [we] do not want them representing us. We would like more education in our state to eradicate their disease.”
This is where we are: those who wish to peacefully return to a constitutional, representative government with a stable rule of law and a free market, a system wherein they are no longer subjects and aren’t charged with subsidizing the welfare state or the NGOs who vote themselves the fruits of others’ labor, are “a disease” in need of eradication. Whereas those who wish to control us, take our liberties, and force us into a kind of “progressive,” happy-faced indentured servitude present themselves as rational — and offer as a solution to the disease of American exceptionalism more leftwing propaganda driven through a union-controlled, heavily leftwing education system.
Up is down. Black is white. Cain isn’t able, exactly. But he’s more than willing.
