Don Young Attacks Federal Employees, Goes Hitler
The “Congressman for All Alaska,” Don Young (R) was a featured speaker today at the Federal Overreach Summit in Anchorage.
Young, who has a reputation for being outspoken, outrageous, and often politically incorrect was in rare form. After railing on what he perceives as the intrusion of the federal government into land and resource issues in Alaska, and into our personal lives, he castigated the EPA, the DEC, the National Parks Service, and the Army Corps of Engineers, saying they “do nothing.” He also had a harsh message to federal employees in general who number 22,887 in his state of only 700,000 people. Young told them they should “feel a little bit guilty” for enforcing laws that don’t “make sense.”
And there was really nowhere to go after that.
And those who work for the federal government, ask yourselves, “What did I do today for the Alaskan citizen? Did I help them or did I hurt them? Did I impose a restriction that didn’t make sense because someone wrote it back in Washington DC in a little office? Ask yourself… Feel a little bit guilty, because you are the government, not of the people, but government for government’s sake. And that’s not a democracy. That’s not freedom. That becomes a monarchy. A totalitarian state.
And this is not just this President. This has been going on now for a period of time since 1935. Do a little reading – a little history. Find out what happened – how Germany collapsed; how Hitler took over, how Stalin became empowered. It’s all because of centralization of a government power, and not the people.
