Simple! BECAUSE THEY DO! Consider the Stalinist tirade by MSNBS’ resident whiner Toure who seemingly wants Obama to dictate every decision we make
In a clip that Mediaite described as “[descending] into self-parody,” MSNBC’s Touré said on The Cycle Monday that the government has a responsibility to “lead” the country into the future– whether the people are ready for it or not.
After likening “We the People” to “petulant children” who sometimes need to be dragged “[kicking] and [screaming],” the MSNBC host declared:
“Perhaps if there’s a second term for Obama after health care is enacted and people see it working well and get used to it, he’ll float to a new level of power.
“Maybe he’ll go even further trying to bolster his legacy by enacting new paternalistic mandates meant to make the nation better. Saying all Americans must vote, because government works better when all participate in selecting leaders.
Eat your vegetables!
Maybe mandate that all citizens must go to some sort of post-high school college — maybe liberal arts, maybe technical — because America works better when we are better educated and trained.
Eat your vegetables!
How about a mandate of a year or two of public service after college?”
“…Mandate extensive premarital counseling and maybe even a review board that can determine whether or not a couple can get married, and pre-divorce counseling to try and save marriages, because teaching relationship skills is critical to building strong nuclear families.”
This is textbook Statism, and there are two types of Leftists who spew such things. The perpetual child, who wants the government to be their mommy and daddy. Then there is the pure Statist, that loathes people to the point of wanting them enslaved to government. Toure is likely the second type. He sees himself as an elite, well above the commoners. He is on one hand arrogant enough to consider himself an elite, and on the other hand, stupid enough to believe the government would leave HIS free will intact. Sad, Toure, sad stupid AND arrogant is no way to go through life, but, apparently it IS a great way to get a gig on the cesspool that MSNBS is.
