A nation of dumpster diving, gas lines, class warfare, race cards, and no jobs.
“This is about revenge.”
— Rush Limbaugh on the policies of President Obama, February 27, 2009
“Voting is the best
— Barack Obama, November 2, 2012
It was the grand leftist experiment.
It was Obama’s Revenge.
A revenge designed to take what Ronald Reagan once called “the last best hope of man on earth” and, instead, to “transform America.” A revenge designed to remake a nation founded on principles of liberty and freedom into a Westernized progressive utopia. An “Ameritopia” — to borrow from Mark Levin’s bestseller.
Rush Limbaugh nailed this exactly way back on February 27, 2009. And now the President himself — in an unscripted moment at a Friday rally — has made it clear that Rush was right.
Said the President: “Voting is the best revenge.”
In fact, Obama’s Revenge was the latest experiment in a long line of grand leftist experiments.
Obama’s Revenge has indeed transformed America. Transformed it in four years to a declining land of soaring poverty, relentless unemployment, with millions added to the food stamp rolls, the perpetuation of the race card a regular feature alonside skyrocketing gas prices and now — in the wake of Hurricane Sandy — dumpster diving, six-hour gas lines, and an endless lack of heat and power.
But this transformation was also something else.
Obama’s Revenge was the inevitable conclusion of a presidency formed in a Voldemortish cauldron. A cauldron seething with a witch’s brew of poisonous, bubbling anti-American passions gleaned here and there from far-left Obama mentors from Frank Marshall Davis to Derrick Bell to the Reverend Jeremiah Wright to Bill Ayers.
The first a Communist. The second a believer in “racial realism” — racializing every aspect of the law in “Critical Legal Studies.” The third a proponent of black liberation theology. The fourth a leader in the in violent 1960’s-era Weather Underground that believed, as stated in their manifesto:
The most important task for us toward making the revolution, and the work our collectives should engage in, is the creation of a mass revolutionary movement… akin to the Red Guard in China, based on the full participation and involvement of masses of people… with a full willingness to participate in the violent and illegal struggle.
Part of Obama’s Revenge was the old chestnut of Social Justice. Social Justice, don’t you see? It was about compassion. Justice. Fairness. Americans paying their fair share.
There were continuous Obama references to the “mess” America was in on January 20, 2009. But never an admission that the “mess” was caused by an earlier crusade for Social Justice — that crusade for Social Justice in housing.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
