Government once again begs public to trust it
Sept. 16, 2013
Amid confusion caused when gunmen opened fire at the Washington Navy Yard in D.C. this morning, the White House attempted to take control of the situation by issuing an anonymous statement telling citizens to unquestionably obey orders from so-called “authorities.”
“We urge citizens to listen to the authorities and follow directions from the first responders on site,” the anonymous source advised in a message relaying the president was aware of the situation.
The timing of the White House’s request to “trust it” is interesting in light of last Friday’s Gallup poll which indicated Americans’ trust in government to handle problems is at an all-time low.
Even the Defense Department has had to beg its public affairs employees to come up with more-believable lies to resuscitate its credibility in the eyes of the public.
However, these are the types of events governments take advantage of to rally the public and build credibility. Predictably, the White House will push the agenda of fear and rely on its media cronies to blame guns for the shooting.
It could be equally argued that casualties suffered were the result of the government’s unconstitutional D.C. firearm-ban, as an armed, and thus prepared, citizen might have been able to stop the gunmen.
It’s also interesting to note that just yesterday, Obama reiterated his efforts to attack gun rights.
Despite all this, the White House still expects the public to blindly follow its orders.
