TFG: Obama Warns Press They're Supposed to (Now) Be Skeptical of Those In Positions of Power, Not "Sycophantic"


I've been watching Leah Remini's Scientology and the Aftermath series. It's all about a mind-control cult, obviously, where thinking Wrongthoughts about cult leaders could get you socially isolated and punished.

I can't help thinking that for 9 long years, America has been controlled by a similar cult.

Some #NeverTrumpers continue insulting me (and other people who opposed Hillary Clinton, rather than flacking for her). They don't seem to get why we'd do such a thing.

It's because we were tired of living in a mind-control cult and were willing to do anything -- anything -- to escape it.

If some of you found some Good Solid Truths in the cult we had been living in, or didn't mind the Cult that much, or liked some of the Forbiddances and Blasphemy Laws the Cult imposed on The Deplorables, that's fine. I guess.

I don't have any problem with Scientologists personally. Assuming its their own freely-made choice, they may believe as they wish.

But for many of them, of course, it's not a freely-made choice, and I feel bad for them.

And I feel really bad for myself and other people who did not sign up to belong to a mind-control cult but were nevertheless being forced to labor under its blasphemy laws and demands of daily catechisms to Obama.

If you were content in the little cage they permitted you to slightly move in, I guess you're low-energy. Some of us, however, like a little more freedom of movement.

A commenter (forget who, sorry) keeps quoting this. It's a great quote:

Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.

-- Daniel Webster
