Joe the plumber is important – not simply because he represents the defense of middle class aspirations against a socialist system designed to create a wide gap between the dependent ranks of the working class and the upper classes safely ensconced and managing the socialist bureaucracy, but because his case demonstrates quite well the fate of those who criticize an Obama administration. Even without government control, Sen. Obama’s backers are using the weapon of media intimidation to silence and suppress critics and clear his way to the top job.
The media have managed to turn up more negative material on Joe the plumber in a day than they have on Barack Hussein Obama in a year. The latter is running for president; the former was an ordinary man who asked him a question.
This is the way things work in a dictatorship, not in the United States.
