Inaugural Hypocrisy


Theater substitutes for real democracy.

by Stephen Lendman

A previous article discussed America's quadrennial exercise in hypocrisy. It's institutionalized. It conceals the nation's dark side.

Pomp and circumstance hide neoliberal harshness. War is portrayed as peace. Lawless government is called legitimate. Democracy never existed and doesn't now.

Freedom in America is endangered. Bipartisan complicity plans destroying it altogether. 

America is on a fast track toward tyranny and ruin. Police state laws threaten everyone.

Activism and dissent are marginalized. Increasingly they're not tolerated. Supporting what's right is called dangerous to national security.

Peaceful demonstrations are attacked and disrupted. Protesters are called terrorists. They're arrested and jailed for expressing constitutionally guaranteed First Amendment and other rights.

Authorities claim doing so gives material support to enemies. None exist except invented ones. 

Monied interests run America. Obama's their front man. Doublespeak duplicity conceals his dark side. He supports wrong over right. 

Liberalism, progressive change, and populism are ideologically opposite his agenda. Militarism, corporatism, elitism and privilege reflect it.

Don't expect media scoundrels to explain.

The New York Times headlined "Obama Offers Liberal Vision," saying:

Obama's inaugural address "offered a robust articulation of modern liberalism in America"." He "argu(ed) that 'preserving our individual freedoms ultimately requires collective action.' "
