People Power: John W. HickenlooperApparently, John Hickenlooper, the Democratic governor of Colorado, thinks the United States is a dictatorship where everyone must support the president on certain issues.  And he apparently thinks you’re not an American if you disagree.

“If you are an American — at least I’ve always felt this my whole life growing up — (and) your president decides something, you’ve got to support him if it’s an issue of national security,” he said. “That is just the way it works.”

The Twitter account for a Denver NBC affiliate sent out this message on Wednesday:

Naturally, this sparked a bit of discussion…

Do we really need to ask?

Exactly.

Good question.

Exactly.

That’s the spirit.

Hickenlooper is one of the Democratic governors who has decided to take in refugees from Syria, even though a majority of Americans oppose the idea.

He’s not just taking them in, he actually believes it’s against the law to oppose the president on this issue.

“Governors don’t have the right to restrict people from coming into their state. They just can’t. I’m not a lawyer but everyone I know tells me that’s against the law,” he said.  “I took an oath to uphold the laws of the United States of America.”

At least 35,000 people disagree with Hickenlooper, if a Change.org petition is any indication.  Maybe he’ll declare them all to be anti-American…
