Keith Olbermann Special Comment 7/3/07
This is a call for justice. A message to the administration and the people that we cannot stand for the manipulation of power. A statement that we are not blind to the deception in our government and we will not stand for the lies and the corruption.
Finally we hear the mass media stepping up to say what needs to be said rather than blasting iPhone and Paris Hilton news while the country is falling apart around the real issues. Will it continue, or will Olberman see political repercussions of his words and have the same fear injected back into our media that has kept this type of discussion silent for the past 6 years?
Since Bush and Cheney will never resign, let's start the impeachment hearings! If everyone writes and calls their state representatives, governors (or governators here in CA), congresspeople and any other elected official possible and enough voices are heard, we could reclaim our America from this tyrannical regime. We have just celebrated our nation's independence day yet our liberties are being twisted and taken away by George Bush, Dick Cheney, and their administration. True patriots do not follow blindly, they stand up for their rights and the interests of the people. In the words of Thomas Jefferson, "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." Our patriots' blood has been spilled unnecessarily in Iraq, now we need to call for the political blood of the tyrants by removing Bush and Cheney from office!
