Last night’s concern troll, one “moops,” believes that we teabaggers are overstating what we have pointed out are tyrannical lurches from the left, both from progressives generally and Barack Obama specifically — though he refused to define what tyranny was, remaining content to tell us we couldn’t give a single example of Obama’s tyrannical behavior, having first of course bracketed out the standard dictionary definitions of tyranny as insufficient.
Moops, you see, knows what tyranny is. He just doesn’t care to share. And because we have not met his threshold for tyranny as he himself defines it for himself, it follows that Obama can’t be accused of tyranny. QED!
Leaving aside the circular reasoning — and leaving aside the fact that he accused us of not being able to name examples after having dismissed such examples as abuse of the appointments clause, “we can’t wait” as an attack on the separation of powers, the attack on religious liberty by HHS, an attempt to redefine the First Amendment to protect against offensive speech — I’d like you all to use this post as a kind of open thread for discussions and examples of the left’s move toward authoritarianism, no matter how they dress it up.
Just because Obama doesn’t wear a military uniform and speak to the masses from his balcony doesn’t mean he isn’t a wannabe-tyrant.
So lay out the case.
