The moral equivalence that Barack Obama suggests here is vile, and reflects his well-documented upbringing within the progressive movement.
Well, let’s be honest…the communist movement. Have a listen to the latest CJN podcast with Scott McKay, whose upcoming book, Racism, Revenge and Ruin: It’s ALL Obama, is a damning indictment of the former president and the people who moved from his administration to the Biden junta. And while I am convinced that Obama is nothing more than a lazy f*ck who would rather hang out, get high, and fantasize (and more) about men, the people he surrounded himself with are decidedly not lazy. They are industrious and dedicated to their goals, which are indistinguishable from those of Antonio Gramsci, Herbert Marcuse, Saul Alinsky and his favorite ghost-writer and terrorist: Bill Ayers. The destruction of the middle class, class and race warfare, the elevation of the 3rd world to dominance in geopolitics, and the destruction of Israel, which has been the tip of the spear of the West for 50 years.
If there’s any chance of us being able to act constructively, to do something, it will require an admission of complexity. And maintaining, what on the surface may seem contradictory ideas — that what Hamas did was horrific, and there’s no justification for it; and what is also true is that the occupation [sic] and what’s happening to Palestinians is unbearable.
That’s post-modern doublespeak for support for Hamas and hatred of Israel. The idea behind his rather incoherent comments (go to the link to read it) is that there are no truths, no morality, no solid basis for civilization. And that leads inexorably to a chaotic confusion between the legitimate defense of a vibrant liberal democracy against a savage 7th century terrorist group, and that group’s avowed goals of genocide.
Toss in the stupidity of the term “occupation,” (Israel left Gaza to its own devices in 2005) and it is typical Obama blather, but like everything he says, it is filled with a subtext that exposes his hatred of the West, his love of racial division, and his desire for a New World Order…and we all know what that means.
But wait…there’s more! He also spouted socialistic nonsense about the evils of free-market economies! You know…the economic system that has elevated the human race from Hobbes’ “solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short,” to the glories that the human mind can create.
“Just because an economic system generates wealth and innovation doesn’t mean it guarantees a good society.”
Unsaid is…what? That government should mandate equality of outcome? Gee, that seems to have worked rather badly whenever it was tried, but this time…THIS TIME…it will be done right, because we will have the correct people running it. After all, what better use for all of those people who spent six years getting degrees in 17th century low-country lesbian poetry than to oversee our economy!
The hubris and ignorance of Obama’s statement is damning. He alone is capable of guiding society to its ultimate ends, and the ample evidence that his plan is untenable will be ignored.
But Obama, according to the current president, is an “African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” so we really aught to listen to him!
Sadly, while Obama is now a talking head who touts his own brand of communism, his acolytes are in power and actively pursuing that end. Sure, Obama is simply a cheerleader for their work, but he is taken seriously, that elevates it to orthodoxy, and that is the continuing danger of our first “transformational” president.
