This is not a secret. I’m not revealing some great truth here. This has been known for a long time by a lot of people, including those whose job it was to report such things to you during the 2008 primaries and general election. However, they chose not to. They were afraid, afraid to be called a racist and afraid that their vision of a liberal utopia would be destroyed and a cranky old white man would get elected.
Obama’s past is littered with radicals and crazies who served as his mentors, advisors and pastors. His mind has been polluted by terrible ideas since boyhood. We shouldn’t be surprised at what we see today.
His youth in Hawaii was spent in an almost father-son relationship with an avowed communist, Frank Marshall Davis. Do you think Davis was teaching Obama about the greatness of America and the merits of dynamic capitalism?
For 22 years his pastor was Rev. Jeremiah Wright, a racist America-hater whose rantings caused the Obama campaign some minor embarrassment but little real trouble since the mainstream media refused to show the incendiary sermons that “damned” America. Obama claimed to have sat under his preaching for all those years yet never heard anything like what was found on the excerpts that surfaced during the campaign. Was Wright counseling the young Chicago politician in the inherent goodness of the American people and the exceptionalism that makes America a shining light in a dark world?
His neighbor and good friends were William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, unrepentant domestic terrorists who tried to kill cops and military personnel when protesting the Vietnam War. Many suspect that Ayers was the actual author of Obama’s first book and the puppetmaster behind the Obama’s rise in politics. What do you think Ayers and Dorhn love most about America and how they might have passed that love on to their community organizer neighbor Obama?
His wife Michelle proclaimed during the campaign that for the first time in her adult life she was proud of her country? What kind of twisted view of America has she contributed to the president?
Obama is the classic academic liberal, long on book knowledge and theory but lacking in practical experience. The books say how things should work in a liberal utopia, and the coffeehouse discussions explain how it will all work, but there is no practical evidence of truth based on actual experience. It’s all a pipe dream.
Obama has been raised to believe that America is not exceptional and a beacon of freedom and hope, but in fact is the source of most evil in the world today. America is an arrogant superpower and until she can be brought down to the level of the rest of the world we’ll never be able to solve global warming, bring peace throughout the nations, and live in a world where there are rainbows and unicorns for everyone.
To accomplish this America must be weakened. Our economic system must be damaged beyond repair, our military neutered, and our people subjugated by the government to ensure that no one prospers and starts thinking for themselves. Americans must be dependent on their government so America can take it’s rightful place among failing socialist democracies.
Americans must be taxed at levels designed to punish achievement and reward sloth. Those who achieve must be forced by regulation and threat to give their bounty away to those who have done nothing to earn it other than breathe and vote for Democrats. A minority of Americans must pay the bills for the majority. With 47% of households not paying ANY income tax, we’re getting very close to that liberal ideal.
Obama’s life-long hatred of America, developed and nurtured over the years by the radicals and crazies he was drawn to, is now being played out in real life. It’s no longer an academic exercise, but a real and growing tragedy for this country.
And it was all very predictable. Maybe if he hadn’t been a “clean and articulate” liberal black man who could give a good speech the media might have done its job and vetted him with the intensity they applied to Sarah Palin. Maybe they would have discovered his past full of lefties, loons and really dangerous people and would have reported it with the same earnestness they reported Palin’s daughter’s pregnancy.
Yeah, and maybe this is the week I’ll get my rainbows and unicorns.
