“Good man,” redux
Only this time, I’m not on the hot seat.
Let me just say this, quickly: if we as conservatives are not willing at this point — having been called enemies, racists, murderers, potential terrorists, et al., by our own government — to accept that what we’re dealing with is indeed a malicious attack on our individual sovereignty and an intentional plan to undermine our constitutional republic and replace it with an beneficent police state peopled by industrious worker bees, helpfully directed and nudged toward happiness by a permanent ruling elite, then we have already lost the game.
Of course Obama doesn’t see what he’s doing as malicious. But that’s only because he believes what he’s doing — and it’d be God’s work, if there were such a thing as that ridiculous man-made construct — is helping eradicate what is: namely, classical liberalism, Enlightenment thinking, individual liberty, and a competitive free market capitalist system wherein there are no permanent classes for us to settle comfortably into.
That is, because he believes it to be good and right, and is so confident that he can run the world more adeptly through his natural brilliance and charisma than can some invisible hand, he’s out to demonize and then destroy the foundational principles of this country as envisioned — and to so he’s willing to demonize and destroy those in principled opposition to his ideology. For the greater good, of course.
One of his mentors, Bill Ayers, thought that might require some camps and maybe 25 million dead.
And as I happen to be one of those, I take offense. Pardon fucking me.
