Remember back when many Americans saw the soul crushing enforced uniformity of communism as a bad thing
— and not as a pseudo-intellectual playground on which to play out their fantasies of rubbing elbows with radicals?
It was Beaver Cleaver’s oppressive Eisenhower America. Not like now, where the promise of socialist Utopian transformation has provided us with unprecedented liberty.
Provided, that is, we only want shit that is granted us by the State — and provided we embrace the identity narratives assigned us by our self-styled leaders.
And honestly, what kind of an ungrateful citizen would ask for any more than what the State determines he absolutely needs?
Anyone who’s read Stanley Kurtz’s book on Obama’s school years already knows who Obama is, who his friends and political allies really are, and what his goal is for the US. They know how, as a political player, he was manufactured and packaged for public consumption, taking the tack (post 1972) that the way forward for socialism was to hide advocacy for socialist causes and to disguise socialist ideology as populist pragmatism, to work incrementally for changes to our institutions that it would prove impossible to roll back, and to bring employ a long term strategy of class warfare and envy politics in order to destroy the “middle class” and create a bifurcated nanny-state society run through the practices of liberal fascism: a ruling class working in conjunction with big business to create ersatz “free” markets stoked by crony capitalism, and to solidify in place a pervasive administrative state beyond the reach of voters whose role it is to destroy individual liberty and autonomy and replace it with State dependency.
“Fundamental transformation” involves removing the last vestiges of Constitutional restraint — and the project has been a long one, beginning in a sense with the usurpation of language and the granting of power to politicized interpreters to rework a real, ratified document into a kind of open document into which has been read any number of revisions posing as interpretations. The long march through our institutions is all but complete. And now, it is the last stand of our compromised mainstream media to do their job and provide the propaganda necessary to carry the progressive coup over the November 2012 finish line.
After that? We’re done.
And we will have been defeated because we were afraid of being cast as conspiratorial fools. Which, as the Soledad O’Brien interview of Joel Pollak — an exercise that didn’t hide its brush strokes well at all — made abundantly clear, is precisely what the activist media is counting on.
Lucky for them, the right seems to have no shortage of those more concerned with how they appear to the left than with pushing back against the very narrative in which they’ve been so thoroughly inscribed.
