Code words. Liberals are full of them.
Liberals are full of a great many things, most stink out loud and code words are certainly on that list. What liberals don’t want anybody to know is what certain code words really mean and, when exposed, they deny the definition with vigor.
Today, we reveal the secret behind one of their favorite codes.
We hear it all the time and, frankly, we’re sick of it.
Liberals have nobody to blame but themselves.
Here it is…
“That was taken out of context.”
Clearly, there are variations…
“That was taken completely out of context.”
“You can’t take something out of context and try to make people believe in something that was never said.”
“You have to quit taking things out of context.”
And an all time favorite…”Conservatives are always taking things out of context.”
It’s code and, now, because of this article…Not so secret any more.
“THAT WAS TAKEN OUT OF CONTEXT” in liberal speak actually means…”We slipped up and told the truth about what we really think.”
First, let’s look at something ACTUALLY taken “out of context.”
If someone were to say…
“I would NEVER go to the state of Montana were it not for the beautiful vistas, the clean mountain air, the clear rivers and lakes and the friendly people you meet along the way.”
And they were then quoted as saying…
“I would NEVER go to the state of Montana.”
THAT WOULD BE TAKEN OUT OF CONTEXT!!!
That, however, is NOT what happened to Obama’s latest statement. NOT EVEN CLOSE.
Okay…Now let’s really LOOK at that statement.
“We’ve already made a trillion dollars’ worth of cuts.” (Maybe but…You have ALSO spent more than any president in history! So you say you’ve made a trillion in cuts BUT…you conveniently left out that you’ve SPENT 6 TRILLION DOLLARS!!!)
“ We can make some more cuts in programs that don’t work, and make government work more efficiently…We can make another trillion or trillion-two, and what we then do is ask for the wealthy to pay a little bit more …” (Ahhh…the wealthy…THEY’RE ALREADY PAYING 70% OF ALL THE TAXES while something like 45% of the people pay NO TAXES at all. Now granted, those paying NO taxes don’t create jobs unless they happen to be GE but…by INCREASING taxes on those who DO create jobs…YOU ARE PROVIDING THEM THE INCENTIVE TO STOP CREATING JOBS…STOP GROWING…STOP ADDING TO THE ECONOMY!!!)
Now we get to the meat of the thing…
“There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me, because they want to give something back. They know they didn’t -look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own.” (He repeats himself for emphasis…”If you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own.” That indicates that Obama really, REALLY means that he believes nobody achieves success on their own)
“ I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something – there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there.” (Clearly Obama does NOT believe that people achieve success because they are smart OR because they work hard)
“If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges.” (Notice he says WERE instead of, ARE when talking of success. Do teachers help? Sure. Notice he says INVESTED in rather than BUILT when talking about roads and bridges. Who INVESTED in them? AMERICAN TAXPAYERS!!)
“If you’ve got a business…you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.”
Here, Obama CLEARLY states that YOU did NOT build YOUR business…Somebody ELSE made that happen!!!
He goes on to say that the internet didn’t get built on its own and that GOVERNMENT RESEARCH created the internet SO THAT ALL THE COMPANIES COULD MAKE MONEY OFF THE INTERNET…which is clearly FALSE because the GOVERNMENT research (which again was paid for by AMERICAN TAXPAYERS) CREATED THE INTERNET not for companies to make money off it BUT FOR THE DEFENSE DEPARTMENT!!!
At NO point in the remaining segments of his statement does Obama link “roads and bridges” to anyone’s individual business. He DOES go on to state that municipal services like fire departments are government run but entities such as that, and roads and bridges are ALSO funded by TAXPAYER DOLLARS which he simply leaves out of the equation at every step!
THEN..Obama states, CLEARLY that a combination of individuals and GOVERNMENT are responsible for creating the Hoover Dam, sending men to the moon and CREATING THE MIDDLE CLASS??? GOVERNMENT HELPED CREATE THE MIDDLE CLASS???
What Obama nor any socialist can conceive of, is that ALL…EACH AND EVERY THIN DIME THAT THE GOVERNMENT PUTS INTO ANYTHING…
COMES DIRECTLY FROM THE PEOPLE…AMERICAN TAXPAYERS…
GOVERNMENT COULD NOT RUB 2 NICKLES TOGETHER WERE IT NOT FOR THE HARD WORK OF THE AMERICAN TAXPAYER!!!
So, to point out that Obama stated…“If you’ve got a business…you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen,” is far different than taking it out of context. It’s a standalone sentence from a broader speech. NOTHING he says AFTER or BEFORE it…ALTERS ITS MEANING.
But…Obama doesn’t LIKE hearing his own words or thoughts played back to him because, he realizes that…he slipped up and was truthful about his own beliefs…You can’t be successful or build a business without the help of the government.
So…Obama issues THIS statement out of desperation…
“Those ads taking my words about small business out of context, they are flat-out wrong. Of course Americans build their own businesses. Every day, hard-working people sacrifice to meet a payroll, create jobs, and make our economy run. And what I said was that we need to stand behind them, as America always has, by investing in education and training, roads and bridges, research and technology.”
Ummm…He NEVER said, in his original statement that, “we need to stand behind them, as America always has, by investing in education and training, roads and bridges, research and technology.”
He NEVER said in his original statement that, “Of course Americans build their own businesses,” in fact…he said the exact OPPOSITE…“If you’ve got a business…you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”
In his original statement, Obama NEVER stated, . “Every day, hard-working people sacrifice to meet a payroll, create jobs, and make our economy run,” but he DID…again…State the exact OPPOSITE in saying, “ I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something – there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there,” as a way of demeaning their success.
Here is the point which MUST be made and hammered upon every day from now until the election…
NOBODY TOOK HIS WORDS OUT OF CONTEXT BUT…
IN HIS DESPERATE ATTEMPT TO COVER HIS ASS…
OBAMA IS TRYING TO…CHANGE THE CONTEXT OF HIS ORIGINAL STATEMENT!!!!!!
The fact is, government interference makes achieving success in business harder. The more regulations and restrictions that are added to businesses the harder it becomes to build or even start a business. The more taxes levied against businesses the less incentive there is for businesses to grow and become successful.
Obama said what he said and meant it because it is what he, as a socialist, believes.
“If you’ve got a business…you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”
Those words are every bit the antithesis of the American Dream, they were spoken by the very antithesis of an American president and any attempt to scold those who point it out by claiming to have said the exact opposite of what was actually said, is the very definition of lying out of desperation.
