Dissent: Now No Longer The Highest Form Of Patriotism

by Pejman Yousefzadeh on May 17, 2009

Let it be noted that speaking out against the economic policies of the Obama Administration and Democrats in Congress can now merit threatening letters being sent out to the dissenter by Representatives–and doubtless, at some point, Senators–threatening hearings designed to shame, excoriate, and humiliate the dissenter.

As with other such stories, it is necessary to point out that if this happened during the Bush Administration, or when Republicans were in charge of Congress, the media would have raised Hell about the matter. I’d ask why more Hell has not been raised in the mainstream media about this blatant effort to intimidate other potential dissenters, but I think we all know the reasons for the media’s silence.
