Can we tell the truth about Barack Obama? [guest post by motionview]
Can our candidate stand up, face the American people, and tell the truth about Barack Obama?
Can we win if our candidate says hard, true things about Barack Obama?
Can we win if we don’t say these true things about Obama? That one is not rhetorical. Of course not. We lose before we start if we accept battle within our opponent’s distorted construct of media reality.
We must say the true things we know about Barack Obama, or our arguments make no sense.
Barack Obama is a lying socialist. The evidence is so overwhelming that it is only the iron grip on the thought propagation apparatus by those not-yet-retired fucking hippies and their ideological drones in the younger generations that pushes that reality out of the bounds of civilized discourse, and brands those who decline to lie about what Barack Obama really is as being a little nuts.
That is the charge, right? No sane person can believe that Barack Obama is a lying socialist.
Stanley Kurtz laid out a water-tight case on Obma’s socialism long ago; Barack Obama has spent his entire life, his family life, and purposefully in his teenage and adult years, surrounded by, hanging out and working with marxists and socialists and black liberation theologists and anti-colonialists. He is either a socialist, or he is the world’s worst real life troll.
His socialism is evident by his policies at home. Government by presidential and bureaucratic edict. A permanent reduction in the labor force, a permanent increase in the dependency group, a huge jump in the rate of baseline growth in the budget, a tremendous push towards the tipping point, effective nationalization of 1/6th of the economy, stopping real American energy development while diverting billions for unicorn methane plants, and massive payoffs with your money, and debt placed on your children’s backs, to all elements of the Team: the public employee unions, the private unions, the ACORNs and Planned Parenthoods and NRDCs and the climate controllers and the venture socialists and the crony capitalists and tax farmers of every stripe.
His socialism is evident by his policies abroad. Abandoning Iraq after the brilliantly planned and magnificently executed Surge and initial transition. Afghanistan. Refusing the generals their needs at the git-go, giving them half a loaf, and then pulling the rug out, by deed and word. Letting the Islamic Brotherhood take Egypt from a mostly-not-belligerent-to-Israel Arab ally of America. Libya cowed by the mere thought of Bush swinging America’s cock? Can’t have that, get that weak old man out of there and let’s see what happens with a new failed state, with lots of weapons and oil. A real, active enemy of America under a deadly assault by his own people yearning to be free? Fuck those people, Hezbollah’s control of Lebanon is not tenable without Assad in Syria. Leave him be. The Iranians enriching uranium on their way to a nuclear bomb and the coming of the 12th imam? We think Israel will attack Iran sometme this spring. Just sayin’.
His socialism is evident in his own words. He told us he wanted to share the wealth. He told us America was no more exceptional than Greece. She told us she had never as an adult been proud of America. He told us he wanted to fundamentally transform America.
And the lying. How many ridiculous, blatant, bald-faced lies would the administration have to tell for you to believe that their words have only an incidental relationship with the truth? The reality is that they lie on a scale and scope and with a brazen audacity beyond compare to any previous presidential candidate, much less previous president. The entire Progressive movement is fundamentally one Big Lie, because it is based around the reality that the Prog leadership is much, much more radical than the masses they claim to represent. The Progs believe the people need a vanguard to lead them to what’s good for them, and if the only way to organize them is to claim to be worried about asbestos, so be it.
Barack Obama is a lying socialist, and if our candidate can’t make that case and win, we lose.
I wrote this Wednesday night, planning to come back Thursday and fill in all of the links. And then, the horrendous, unbearable loss. I don’t know what I am going to do yet, but I do know that this is my last anonymous post.
