As outrage grows at the news that the Obama regime has expanded citizen surveillance beyond even George W. Bush’s wildest dreams, the Empire’s toadies are doing their best to quell the rebellion.
Naturally, Max Boot, the toadiest of them all, is trying to assure the peasants that yes, it’s true your government is spying on you, but hey, it’s a good thing. Is it legal? You betcha – the USA Patriot Act, he writes, gives the government sweeping authority to snoop on anyone it deems suspicious. That settles that!
Is there anything we should be angry about here? There sure is, says Boot: “The only outrage here is that the Guardian has disclosed such a highly classified program.”
That’s because REAL AMERICANS – you know, the ones that spit bile whenever the government decrees an official Two Minute Hate – should demand the firing squad for anyone who reveals embarrassing truths about their government. If that’s not patriotism, then what is? And who better to instruct Americans about the true meaning of patriotism than a Russian immigrant who openly endorses American Empire?
