What’s up with the Bamster? Is he a secret Muslim taking orders from the Kremlin?
I’m going to try to do this without going full Beck, so bear with me…
One of our co-bloggers, melfamy, suggests:
Pay attention, people. Obama is not a good President. He is also not a Muslim, a communist, a socialist, a trotskyite, a maoist, or an anti-Semite. Obama does not do any off the following:
1)Apologize for America
3)Hate his white half
4)Love his black half more
5)Long to see Sharia law instituted in the US
1) violated the Constitution(but no worse than any other President. Still, it is time to crack down.)
2) given us a health care bill that will, ironically, set the Progressive movement back 20 years or more.
3) spent our money AND future earnings, on jobs that evaporated, and saving banker ass.
4) has been “knowingly receiving and abiding by Communist orders, and consciously serving the Communist conspiracy, for all his adult life.”
Taking these one at a time:
Obama is not a good President.
Agreed. Perhaps the most duplicitous and politically partisan president since Woodrow Wilson or FDR, Obama displays every characteristic that makes for a poor president. He is indecisive and to be poll driven, the most tone deaf president in my lifetime (and I remember Carter). By every objective measure – unemployment, GDP (economic recovery), balance of payments, national debt, growth of poverty and the increase in government assistance to individuals, growth of government employment vs. the private sector (in number and compensation), financial corruption and cronyism, and federal budget deficit (if we only had a budget), Obama is the worst president in modern history.
He is also not a Muslim, a communist, a socialist, a trotskyite, a maoist, or an anti-Semite.
A person doesn’t have to declare to be a member of any of these groups to behave like one. He is protective of Islam, having grown up in majority Muslim societies and educated in Islamic influenced schools. He has not declared that he is a Muslim but he clearly has sympathies with Islam and has actually never visited Israel (perhaps giving rise and credence to the assertion that he is Muslim and an anti-Semite). As shown in the recent dust –up over the forced issuance of contraceptives by Catholic supported/run organizations, he has shown an animosity toward Catholics that he has never shown toward Islam.
His father was a Kenyan communist, his mother a new age “progressive”, he was tutored at the feet of a black nationalist/socialist – Frank Marshall Davis and he reportedly sought out and socialized with communists in college and later with radicals Bernadine Dohrn and Bill Ayers. It is also inarguable that his policies are collectivist and redistributionist and he has intervened in the private sector using government funds to take ownership in the manner of production of the financial and automotive industries – these are Marxist actions and whether declared as such, have the same effect.
Obama may not be a declared communist, socialist, Trotskyite or Maoist but he exhibits strong tendencies to each.
He has never apologized for America.
This is a clever parsing of words. We first have to understand how a politician apologizes. A politician never actually says the words, “I’m sorry”. He discusses how he has failed, misspoke, was taken out of context, etc. The point being that there are many ways to apologize without using the actual words. In point of fact and with the same effect as a formal apology, Obama has expressed an apologetic sentiment without actually saying the words. In April of 2009, a scant three months after inauguration, Karl Rove detailed three separate “apologies” in the Wall Street Journal:
President Barack Obama has finished the second leg of his international confession tour. In less than 100 days, he has apologized on three continents for what he views as the sins of America and his predecessors.
Mr. Obama told the French (the French!) that America “has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive” toward Europe. In Prague, he said America has “a moral responsibility to act” on arms control because only the U.S. had “used a nuclear weapon.” In London, he said that decisions about the world financial system were no longer made by “just Roosevelt and Churchill sitting in a room with a brandy” — as if that were a bad thing. And in Latin America, he said the U.S. had not “pursued and sustained engagement with our neighbors” because we “failed to see that our own progress is tied directly to progress throughout the Americas.”
By confessing our nation’s sins, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said that Mr. Obama has “changed the image of America around the world” and made the U.S. “safer and stronger.” As evidence, Mr. Gibbs pointed to the absence of protesters during the Summit of the Americas this past weekend.
He hates America.
Obama doesn’t hate America – he just hates any America that hasn’t been “remade” by his policies. His actions to reduce the influence America had in the world and to put us in a position to “lead from behind” cause me to believe that he believes that America is dangerous and cannot be trusted to do the right thing when faced with a challenge. That isn’t the same as “hate” but it does approach loathing. He certainly has a different vision of what America is and should be that is significantly different than most Americans (my opinion).
He hates his white half or loves his black half more.
Yeah, I don’t know about this one. I cannot say for certain that he dislikes anything about his white heritage because that heritage is one that is in alignment with his worldview – “progressive”. What I can say is that he certainly downplays the Caucasian aspects to identify as a black man. He is never referred to as “mixed race”, always as African-American or black. Why do you suppose that is?
I think it is because it is politically advantageous to him – and he uses it to full effect. I do believe that he exhibits racist tendencies as he manages his political coalition – for example, forming the support organization, African Americans for Obama. Actions like this by him are casually overlooked by the media – can you even imagine the magnitude of the firestorm that a group called White Guys for Romney or Honky Crackers for Ron Paul would generate? Hating his white half is perhaps too harsh but there is either 1) a resentment of that half of his mixed DNA or 2) a cynical repression of it for a political purpose.
He longs to see Sharia law instituted in the US.
This seems nonsensical – what he has not done is spoken against the encroachment of Sharia in the US. He has said nothing about the use of it in a Florida court case…perhaps it isn’t important to him but sometimes not speaking against something has the same effect as agreeing with it while maintaining plausible deniability – silence is acquiescence.
As for the rest:
He has violated the Constitution, not “no worse than any other president” but worse than any other president since Wilson and FDR, who saw the Constitution as nothing but an impediment to their “progressive” visions of America.
Part and parcel of that disregard for the Constitution is the Affordable Health Care Act of 2010. I see no difference between the first assertion and this one, they are the same – as far as setting “progressivism” back, it won’t because even if the law is deemed unconstitutional, there are already vestiges that will never be completely repealed and removed from the government.
He did spend our kids and grandkids into the poor house but it wasn’t for nothing – the money is coming back to his campaign from the very people who receive the bailouts and the loan guarantees. The unions now own substantial chunks of the automotive companies and they will return the love in cash and donated time in his campaign.
But none of this really matters. Obama is a bad president, perhaps the worst in the history of America.
That says it all.
