Toonophobia by Cox & Forkum
Contrary to the media narrative of President Obama being an enlightened constitutional scholar, he actually opposes civil rights.
Let’s define our terms, what are civil rights? Democratic Party supporters getting free stuff from government? WRONG!!!
Civil rights are procedural rights designed to protect individual rights from violation by government; they are found in the Constitution, laws, regulations, and judicial precedent.
There are two essential principles in civil rights: (1) equal protection of the law, and (2) due process of law. Through its actions, the Obama Administration has acted to undermine both of these principles.
There are three well known areas of equal protection violations by the Obama Administration that I point to: (1) favoring one religious group (Islam) over others, (2) discrimination against some political speech and for other political speech, and (3) advocating racial discrimination in college admissions. I will go into each in more detail in a post on Friday titled, “Obama Violates Equal Protection of Law”. In the meantime, feel free to add your own examples in the comments below.
There are four well know areas of due process violations by the Obama Administration that I point to: (1) GM bankruptcy, (2) Khalid Shaikh Mohammed’s prosecution, (3) executive waivers from compliance with the law, and (4) legal process extortion. I will go into each in more detail in a post on Saturday titled, “Obama Violates Due Process of Law”. In the meantime, feel free to add your own examples in the comments below.
Through its repeated violations of equal protection and due process, the Obama Administration has demonstrated a contempt for civil rights. Instead of the protection of the rule of law, Americans can expect from President Obama an arbitrary, capricious, and contrary to statute administration by decree to benefit the politically favored at the expense of violating the individual rights of all Americans, which had been protected by a governmental commitment to civil rights.
To paraphrase George Orwell, Obama’s governing modus operandi is that although all citizens are equal, some are more equal than others.
