Repressive despots have long exploited innocence
Using school children as propaganda props is a predictable device employed by the left. They were cunningly exploited yesterday as a ruthless Barack Obama brazenly signed his expansive curtailment of America’s constitutional freedoms — while bypassing congress — to announce 23 executive actions curbing sales of guns and ammunition.
Included in Obama’s overreach “for the children” is his coziness with the liberal leadership of the American Medical Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics — long filled with notorious gun-grabbers. The Weekly Standard details how he has deputized doctors to “help” snoop on law-abiding, gun-owning patients. In fact, the White House has now lent federal support to doctors’ groups trying to fight state efforts to protect gun owners’ privacy: Political malpractice hand-in-glove with medical malpractice in the name of saving children is nothing short of a recipe for authoritarianism. We previously covered Obama’s photo ops using MDs as props for his socialization of our health care here and here where Scottsdale Dr. Susan Wilder, a Democrat, was a willing shill.
For a well researched pictorial essay, shocking in its comprehensive overview, we invite you to check out “How Dictators Kiss Babies,” by James Thomas Snyder. He shows Stalin, Vladimir Putin, Mao Tse-tung, Nicolai Ceausescu, and members of North Korea’s Kim Dynasty, setting the stage for Obama’s photo op.
“They’re common-sense measures,” Obama declared as he claimed, “They have the support of the majority of the American people.”
