Isn't it ironic that President Obama, having acquired the highest office in the land by agitating -- all his political life -- against privilege and discrimination, is now systematically wielding his executive power lawlessly to favor his friends and punish his enemies?

We are witnessing an unmistakable pattern from Obama and those under his command of establishing different rules for different groups of Americans. I'm not just referring to his opportunistic championing of the "poor" and his vendetta against the "wealthy" or his relentless vilification of "fat cat banks," big corporations, private jet owners and the insurance, oil, coal, natural gas and nuclear power industries. It goes well beyond that.

As Obama blames certain groups of people for America's problems, it follows that he would try to diminish their power and, in some cases, punish them for their past actions and present status.

If you dispute that, you must explain away his 20-year membership in a church driven by race-based get-even-ism; his reflexive condemnation of the Cambridge Police Department for arresting a friend of his, professor Henry Gates, and his leaping to the grossly premature conclusion that the arrest was race-based; his penchant for projection -- prejudging people based on his distorted perception that they, as opposed to him, are uncomfortable with "people who don't look like them"; and his observation to supporters at a campaign rally inside a public high school during the 2012 presidential campaign that "voting is the best revenge." And that is just a sampling.

You'll also have to defend Obama's discriminatory actions and policies.

Consider his tenacious alignment with unions, forever overlooking their misconduct and granting them special privileges and protection.

He gave preferential treatment to unsecured union creditors in the Chrysler and General Motors restructuring debacles, to the detriment of secured creditors. His administration baselessly blocked Boeing from opening up a new plant with 1,000 new jobs in Charleston, S.C., when South Carolina was suffering from a 9.8 percent unemployment rate. He disproportionately allocated Obamacare waivers to labor union concerns.

How about the administration's lopsided allocation of stimulus funds to its political supporters? Its discriminatory retention of GM dealerships for minorities and women? The Justice Department's dismissal of an already-won lawsuit against New Black Panther Party members for voter intimidation -- not because it lacked evidence, as it preposterously claimed, but because it adhered to an unwritten policy against pursuing voter intimidation actions when the alleged perpetrators were minorities and the victims were white?
