Democrat 'Our Values' Talking Point: It's Not 'Annoying' — It's Evil

This is an excellent post, at Legal Insurrection, "Annoying Dem Meme ‘o the Day: Hillary & Obama As Defenders of ‘Our Values’."

But if you'll indulge me, I'll offer a correction: Democrats claiming to stand up for "our values" is a longstanding meme I've noticed over the last few years, starting with President Obama himself, when he intones, "That's not who we are." I've repeatedly mocked this meme, and as you can see it's become an organized talking point on the Democrat side. It's not "annoying" though." It's evil. Leftists do not get to define "our values," simply because they don't accept our values. They don't endorse American exceptionalism and the country's historic vision of the "City on a Hill." Frankly, Democrats from Obama on down have been apologizing for these very same values for the last eight years, starting with the Apologist-in-Chief's Cairo speech.

No, we're way past the "annoying" stage. Redefining "our values" is central to Obama's "fundamental transformation" of America. Patriots must recognize this rhetoric for what it is and call it out every time for enabling our enemies and getting Americans killed.
