WASHINGTON, June 5, 2013 – During the IRS Ways and Means Committee hearings,Becky Gerritson of the Wetumpka Tea Party schooled the House of Representatives on liberty.
Gerritson spoke on the IRS scandal and the persecution of American citizens by the Obama Regime. With strong words, Gerritson lectured the House of Representatives in a way they have long deserved saying:
In Wetumpka, we are patriotic Americans; we peacefully assemble; we petition our government; we exercise our right to free speech. We don’t understand why the government tried to stop us. I’m not here as a serf or a vassal. I’m not begging my lord for mercy. I’m a born-free American woman, wife, mother, and citizen, and I’m telling my government that you’ve forgotten your place.
Gerritson provided testimony in response to allegations that the Obama Regime used the IRS to harass its opponents. Many of the Congressmen applauded her statement, although American traitor Congressman Jim McDermott told Gerritson the IRS scrutiny of her and other groups was their own fault.
McDermott, for those who do not remember, flew to Iraq before we went to war with Iraq and denounced America and the Bush administration in Baghdad. John Boehner also successfully sued him for leaking to the media an unlawfully recorded conversation in which Boehner, Newt Gingrich and others were discussing political strategy.
Meanwhile, last night in Tennessee, the Obama Regime was doing its best to shred the 1st Amendment.
The United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee along with an FBI agent showed up at a meeting put on by American Muslim Advisory Council in Manchester Tennessee.
Bill Killian, the Federal Prosecutor came to the meeting to tell Muslims that anyone saying inflammatory things about Muslims on social media could trigger persecution by the Federal Government under civil rights statutes.
Hundreds of real Americans showed up to protest.
Killian allegedly graduated from the University of Tennessee’s law school. In Tennessee, UT’s law school is generally regarded as a fine law school, which begs the question how anyone could graduate from law school without understanding the 1st Amendment.
Realizing the backlash the program created, the sponsors only allowed a couple of questions for the panelists .
That is unfortunate because people like Killian need to be reminded we are not their slaves. We are not their serfs. We are not their subjects. We do not live in an America where we must beg those in power to be allowed to exercise our rights. We do not live in an America where those in power can capriciously grant or deny rights to those they favor or disfavor.
Americans need to wake up. This is not about politics; it is about the very liberty this nation was founded on. This is about freedom and one thing we know is that if we lose freedom, those who take it from us will never voluntarily return it.
In America we fly flags with messages that tell our leaders, “Don’t tread on me.” We have mottos that say things like, “Live free or die.” Freedom for us is not a word that is a part of an advertising slogan nor is it a meaningless punch line in a joke.
The Obama Regime had better understand the words of Becky Gerritson.
She speaks for millions of us. We will not ask you for our freedom. Our rights are inalienable rights, given to us by God and we shall not ask permission nor forgiveness for the exercise of those rights.
Nor shall we tolerate a government that infringes on those rights.
