Who'd She Coup?

>> Thursday, July 2, 2009

Did you hear about the coup in Honduras? I bet you did. Media's been talking this up, along with Michael Jackson's untimely demise, as typical central and south American "rule by mob" politics (the coup, not Jackson's U.D.)... even Fox calls this the military coup of a democratically elected leader. And aside from a few of the pundits, Fox's news department paints the whole affair in a negative light. Not particularly surprising.

Well how about some perspective?

From the Wall Street Journal:

The Wages of Chavismo

"As military "coups" go, the one this weekend in Honduras was strangely, well, democratic. The military didn't oust President Manuel Zelaya on its own but instead followed an order of the Supreme Court. It also quickly turned power over to the president of the Honduran Congress, a man from the same party as Mr. Zelaya. The legislature and legal authorities all remain intact.

We mention these not so small details because they are being overlooked as the world, including the U.S. President, denounces tiny Honduras in a way that it never has, say, Iran."

President Zelaya, with the aid of Hugo Chavez was attempting to set himself up as a tin-horn dictator. But the world [i.e., the U.N., Obama, Chavez, Castro, etc.] is outraged that any populace would seek to prevent a leader from voiding his country's rule of law to become, well, another tin-horn dictator.

Enter a bit of dangerous Obama hypocrisy:

"...As for the Obama Administration, it seems eager to "meddle" in Honduras in a way Mr. Obama claimed was counterproductive in Iran. Yet the stolen election in Iran was a far clearer subversion of democracy than the coup in Honduras. As a candidate, Mr. Obama often scored George W. Bush's foreign policy by saying democracy requires more than an election -- a free press, for example, civil society and the rule of law rather than rule by the mob. It's a point worth recalling before Mr. Obama hands a political victory to the forces of chavismo in Latin America."

Not only is Obama inexperienced, but it's on display for anyone in the world with eyes to see, and ears to hear.

From the National Review:
The Honduran Counter-Coup

"...While it is always unnerving to see gun-toting officers arrest a president, the move against Zelaya was not a conventional "military coup." It was an affirmation of democracy and the rule of law, both of which the president had flouted. If anything, it was a counter-coup, the real coup having been attempted by Zelaya."

Did you catch that? 'it was a COUNTER-COUP.'

Isn't that what democrats in Washington are doing to the United States? Staging a coup? Isn't this what they've been trying to do for decades now?

As a side note, allow me to suggest that the reason everything Obama and the Left are attempting to do to America appears so overwhelming is because America has reached a tipping point where, after years of bad policies on top of bad policies, the pot is now tipping over from the weight of all that built-up momentum. it looked pretty when the fall appeared ages away, but now that we're in the gravity well of a gargantuan socialistic black hole we are all understandably fearful. Would that we had wakened to the danger decades ago; but this is where we are, and this is from where we must begin to fight back.

It's time now to stage our own counter-coup. Not with guns, knives, or pipe-bombs. Not with men like Bill Ayers, but with the ballot. The ballot is mightier than the sword [except in Minnesota]. It is time to take a side and stand firm-- no wishy-washy Charlie Brown's allowed.

Those who wish to see America return to her roots must refuse to give any more ground to the Left, and that includes supporting democratic bills because they have the pretension of offering a few items of piecemeal goodness, while loaded throughout with poison.

If you want to prevent Obama from further destroying this country you have to stand up. Now. Today. Tomorrow will be too late.

Press your senators to vote against Cap & Tax. Press your congressmen and senators both to vote against government run healthcare. These two measures alone will wreak havoc on American business, American jobs, and more importantly, American lives.

I've said my peace, now it's your turn.

They should have stuck his Chavez-Ass in jail instead of dropping him in Argentina.

I totally agree with everything you've said, Eric. More than ever before, this country requires the involvement of its people. It was a groundswell of grass roots activism that stymied the Harriet Meiers nomination for SCOTUS. It was a groundswell of grass roots activism that thwarted the so-called "Comprehensive Immigration Reform". In a twisted, sick and totally irresponsible way, it was a groundswell of swill that got the Idiot in Chief elected last November. So, obviously, real change, of a type that actually helps our country rather than destroys it like the "change" Barry brought us, real change is possible if enough people care enough to take the time to pay attention, see what's going on, and react with phone calls, emails, attending party or other political events, SOMETHING to make one's voice heard regularly.

BTW, Eric...I love the title's wordplay.

Your First Amendment right to free speech is a privilege and comes with a measure of responsibility. You have the right to exercise that responsibility here but we reserve the right to inform you when you've used that right irresponsibly.

We are benevolent dictators in this regard. Enjoy.
