I know I’m beginning to sound like a broken record, but our president is looking and sounding more like a speech-squelching totalitarian every day. Yesterday he said this:
I don’t want the folks who created the mess to do a lot of talking. I want them to just get out of the way so we can clean up the mess. I don’t mind cleaning up after them, but don’t do a lot of talking.
Watch it for yourself:
If this were in isolation, I would chalk it up to ill-advised rhetoric. But coming from a man who has just sent the brownshirts and goons to town halls and whose White House has urged people to snitch on free speech, this gives me the chills.
