(***This is an update to “President Petulant hits a new low: the WWII Memorial Fiasco…“, from a couple days back…)
The National Mall and Memorial Parks spokeswoman’s rationale for these measures is as hysterical as it is disingenuous, especially when you consider that this is what the significantly less-trafficked WW One Memorial still looks like today:
Simply more of the same peevish & petty behavior, courtesy of our elected Democrat overlords.
But it shows again Liberals’ willingness to completely and totally exercise their power. Remember the quote from Jonah Goldberg’s first book:
“…Progressivism, liberalism, or whatever you want to call it has become an ideology of power. So long as liberals hold it, principles don’t matter…” (page 158, ‘Liberal Fascism’)
It’s of no consequence whether we’re discussing the way Obamacare was passed through political bribes, threats and parliamentary tricks on a strictly party-line vote, or having the IRS harass and intimidate the Left’s “enemies”, or even how the the investigations into scandals such as Fast-and-Furious or Benghazi have been delayed, sabotaged and stifled. The only concern of the modern-day Liberal is using their available power to realize their goals. Period.
Because “…principles don’t matter”, doncha’ know.
And if principles don’t matter (as they so obviously don’t to these folks), then you can take it as a written-in-stone, guaranteed corollary: you don’t matter, either.
