Chairman Mao, one of historyâ€™s biggest frauds and most prolific mass murderers has been in the news a lot lately, as Obama Administration officials canâ€™t seem to control their admiration for the man.
One of those officials, White House Communications Director Anita Dunn has famously declared war on Fox News, and has blocked Administration officials from doing interviews with Fox News.
Now it turns out that when it comes to Fox News, North Korea is more open than the Obama White House.
This week, Greta van Susteren of Fox News ran a story about a trip she took with the Rev. Franklin Graham to North Korea, a place where Maoism has had a realâ€”and deadlyâ€”effect.Â Greta accurately calls it â€œthe most secretive nation on earth.â€
The Norkos granted Greta an interview with their Foreign Ministerâ€”essentially their Secretary of State.Â Iâ€™m pretty sure we wonâ€™t be seeing Hillary on Bill Oâ€™Reilly any time soonâ€¦
Maybe the Obama Administration should take one piece of Maoâ€™s advice, and â€œlet a hundred Â flowers blossom.â€ (often misquoted as â€œlet a thousand flowers bloom.â€)
On second thought, maybe not.Â Mao made that proclamation in order to sucker dissidents out into the open, so that he could crack down on them later during the bloodbath known as The Cultural Revolution.
So, hereâ€™s a quote from MY favorite political philosopher, George Washington.Â â€œIf the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.â€
â€œDumb and silentâ€– that best describes how the Obama types like their media.
