(Video) DNC throws American identity under the bus: “The Government Is The Only Thing We All Belong To!”

Via The Jawa Report, here’s a clip from a video shown today to delegates at the convention in Charlotte:

Well, there you go. Forget a common history or heritage. Shared ideals? Meaningless. The common struggle to build a self-governing republic of freeborn citizens around the concept of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? Don’t be silly!

According to the Democratic Party, the only thing that binds us together is government — the State.

Which implies, of course, that we prosper as a people only as government expands and does more for us, to bring us together. (Insert pious heavenward glance and a sigh of gratitude for government beneficence.) The flip side being that anyone who is against an ever-expanding government –which is the only thing that all of us have in common!–  is pretty much anti-American.

It’s official: the Democrats have become a European social democratic party. All that’s needed is official membership in the Socialist International. It’s the progressive vision laid bare for all to see.

I’ll give them credit: they’re at least more honest about this than their history on civil rights.

UPDATE: Mitt Romney and Twitter react.

    Ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Führer!

    That’s what it all boils down to. We do not belong to the government; the government belongs to us. Somehow, our friends on the left can’t seem to take that distinction.

    It is this attitude by the Democrites which has led to the huge expansion of the federal government, their attitude that they know what is best for us, that they can and should tell us how to live our lives, and that we will comply.

    Well, fornicate them! If there was ever a reason to vote out Democrites, this is it.

    (Because we all know how much better off we are in spite of our lying eyes.)

    - Along with the Deficit clock that passed the 16 trillion mark just as the opening gavel fell at the DNC, here’s something else you won’t see flashed on the jumbo TV screens at the DNC

    Could this be the unraveling of the myth of “diversity”?

  4. ZoeSmith says:

    The government was established by the people and FOR the people, we were not made for the government!

  5. To show how woefully ignorant the commiecrats are about capitalism, here is a plum of a money-raising strategy they let slip right through their fingers. When Sandra Fluke gives her speech, instead of a balloon drop they should have a condom drop (as suggested by Bill O’Reilly) while the slogan, “What’s in your wallet?” is emblazoned on the screen. Trojan and Capital One Bank would have paid millions.

    This is really scary situation….this is a rebellious statment. I say it is downright treason. It speaks against the constitutional powers. This is a bid to fill the ignorant so full of angst and emotion that they cannot possibly reason what would be wrong with that statement.

    Why did we have a revolution against England?
    Why was so much blood spilled in our own violent civil war?
    Why did we go to war TWICE to put down the very types of governments that entice people with these messages?
    Why did we have a Cold War with the Soviet Union?
    Why are we fighting for the rights of others in distant lands?

    This is the essences of American Exceptionalism, that we defend the rights that are inherently given to us by our Creator not by a government, monarch or dictator!
