Remember the old axiom about Nazi Germany, when the people looked the other way as tyranny seeped into the country and people looked the other way because they assumed it would never effect them personally?
First they came for the communists and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a communist…
Then they came for the Jews and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t Jewish.
Eventually, the writer of that famous quotation was arrested because he wasn’t deemed as enthusiastic about Nazism as he should have been and spent years in Dachau.
The story about the North Carolina girl having her lunch confiscated because a State school health tyrant didn’t find it healthful in comparison to the chicken nuggets that were offered by the school cafeteria is illustrative of a government that feels no restraint.
This confiscation was mandated by Health and Human Services by way of the USDA.
Government has no boundaries. Government can exact its will on every citizen, regardless of age. An unrestrained government can reign over every aspect of life.
And the offending lunch? Turkey and cheese sandwich, banana, and chips. Why it’s like this mother was trying to kill her child with this sort of meal.
This, my friends, is government tyranny.
Prediction? After the public outcry from this government overreach there will be some sort of phoney apology and tut tutting about some over exuberant ‘rogue enforcer’ followed by a public moderation of the policy. Turkey and cheese will be cool, but a government standard about what consttiutes a properly healthy lunch will follow. Like we fucking need one.
And this suggestion will be cast as a mere ‘suggestion’ from the ‘experts’. Matt Lauer will closely follow this with a ‘healthy lunch and lifestyle’ interview with Moooooochelle on the Today Show.
But the Enforcer position at the school level will continue to exist once the firestorm abates and it will devolve to personal notes to the parents from this point forward.
Dear Mrs. Potato,
I am concerned for your child when I see that you have included Fiery Doritos, MooTown Snackers and a pound of unrefrigerated Lard in Johnny’s lunch bag today. Please come see me before I report you to child protective custody. – Best. Nurse Ratched.
This. my friends, is nothing short of Tyranny. And this tyranny goes all the way to the top.
You, dear readers, have 38 weeks to do everything you can to end tyranny and banish leftist know-it-alls like this president and this Enforcer to ignominy in perpetuity.
Defeat them. Discredit them. Revile them.
They are all the same leftist tyrants.
