Joe Wilson a True American Should not Pay a Price for Yelling the Truth

Updated on September 13, 2009

Wednesday night during the Supreme Commander’s Hail Hitler like address before the Casper Milquetoast representatives assembled before him in order to pay homage, one lone American Patriot had finally heard enough. Representative Joe Wilson of South Carolina had arduously listened and suffered through the endless series of lies until he could stand it no more. In a lone act of un-daunting courage he screamed out what every freedom loving American was thinking at that moment; You lie”!

The boiling point which sent Wilson over the edge was when The Anointed One, sent down from the heavens by Zeus himself to watch over us, “spun” his magical web of lies regarding illegal immigrants and their coverage. He said the language in the reform bill does bar illegal immigrants from receiving health care benefits. But, as Wilson, fellow Republicans and Democrats, both Blue Dog and Liberal Jihadist, know, that same bill does not allow the verification of a recipient’s legal status. You can’t ask any questions regarding their citizenship as Democrats voted down attempt after attempt made by Republicans to make verification of immigrants status part of the bill as it was being debated in the House!

So, instead of chastising Congressman Wilson as some have chosen to do on our side as well as the left; he should be commended for his restraint as he sat through and endured lie after lie pouring forth from this eloquent snake oil salesman! It had to be excruciating for Wilson as it was for me when this Pompous descendent from the heavens above began by pontificating, “I am not the first president to take up this cause, but I am determined to be the last.” In plain speech he said, this is and has been the cause of my life and in order to reshape this imperfect country in my own image and likeness and finally instill social justice for all, this will be accomplished regardless of your objections!

Then the lies began; hold on Joe, hold on! He began in his usual manner by chastising the greatest country God ever gave mankind. “We are the only Democracy on earth that allows such hardship for its people.” What hardships; the fact our people are free to purchase their own healthcare insurance as opposed to being given a rationed version thereof by an imposing Marxist Big Brother looking over their shoulder deciding who gets what; that hardship! Or, is he opposed to the fact we the people are required to pay for health care which results in that most evil of all evils PROFIT, for Insurance Companies? Regardless of how he tries to spin this, people are not locked out of emergency rooms and left to die in the streets! Joe should be commended for making it past this first series of canards!

One of the biggest misstatements the Supreme Prevaricator delivered during his verbal shell game was when he said he would not add a single dime to the deficit! This line is almost as good as his “I will not raise taxes on anyone making under $250,000” pledge during the campaign. Studies are showing it will add about a trillion dollars to the deficit over the first two years of the plan. So in a way he was telling the truth; it won’t add a dime, IT WILL ADD A TRILLION DOLLARS THROUGH THE FIRST TWO YEARS! It is amazing more Republicans weren’t compelled to leave their seats and shout similar epitaphs as Lord Obama’s Snake Oil Wagon rounded this bend in the curve!

The list goes on and on but the single most irritating aspect of this spectacle was the arrogant veneer of him scolding others for; in his words, “taking liberties with the truth”! He of course can and will continue to do so as long as he has the cover from main stream media. The fact is there has been little or no coverage from the mainstream media on the controversial parts of his plan yet alone the runaway cost. Until that happens, he has a green light to lie and cry wolf about whatever he wants, whenever he wants so as to facilitate his purpose; the most radical government takeover ever attempted in America.

So Joe, I for one commend you and sincerely hope colleagues on your side of the aisle support you. You have already offered what I consider an unnecessary apology. One more apology than Al Gore offered as he screamed at the top of his lungs during a speech on February 8, 2004, “President Bush lied; he played on our fears; he betrayed our trust”! Or, one more apology than John Murtha offered after he accused our marines of MURDER following the death of 24 Iraqi civilians in Haditha! Let’s see, No Joe, stick to your guns as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid did following his April 19, 2007 remarks on the senate floor in the middle of a war when he said, “the war in Iraq is lost, the surge is not accomplishing anything," Reid didn’t apologize nor did the smartest woman in the world, Hillary Clinton following her remarks made during her questioning of General Petraeus as he testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee. She said "You have been made the de facto spokesmen for what many of us believe to be a failed policy" in Iraq, "Despite what I view is your rather extraordinary efforts in your testimony both yesterday and today, I think that the reports that you provide to us really require a willing suspension of disbelief."

If in fact, when Queen Nancy steps to the podium next week as I know she will and demands a resolution from the floor requiring yet another apology from you; your Republican Colleagues had better stand strong in their support for you. If they acquiesce and support such a travesty then I for one will do everything in my power to expose them as the “cowards” they are. No they should stand in unison and march along with you single file outside the chamber .while humming America the Beautiful! This double standard regarding behavior of Democrats vs. Republicans has got to stop. The hypocrisy stops here and now with you Joe!

      It's time we quit eating our own and unite behind those on our side courageous enough to call them out when they need it! Joe Wilson is a true Patriot. As information, I went to his website and contributed $100 to him this morning. Go Joe.................

      I too have been torn about my feelings for what Joe Wilson did. I do recall the dems booing GWBush on more than one occassion, and I don't recall any of them apologizing for their behavior. BO should be called the Liar in Chief. Even people who aren't too swift should be able to figure out that you cannot increase coverage WHILE cutting costs. This man is a worldwide embarrassment to our nation.

      Thank-you! I've gone back and forth as to whether his outburst was appropriate. He was telling the truth in yelling what he did. Now, upon reflection, I am in agreement with Wilson and perhaps he can stir up some real action in turning this country around.
