I found solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother's race.
~ Barack Obama
In a Sept. 11, 2001, New York Times interview, the murderous terrorist Bill Ayers, President Obama's political mentor, the man in whose home he started his political career in 1995, said: ''I don't regret setting bombs. I feel we didn't do enough.'' Rev. Jeremiah Wright, in whose church Michelle and Barack Obama dutifully worshipped for 20 years, said: "Racism is how this country (America) was founded and how this country is still run!"
Obama, recounting his formative years, wrote: "To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists." From this we can deduce that Obama and his closest friends all passionately hate America.
This is President Obama and the politics of revenge.
This is who Obama is. This is how Obama was raised: to hate America with a fanatical hatred that controls and animates his social, political, economic, religious and foreign-policy worldview. His entire Cabinet are a veritable who's who of political radicals, social engineers, Marxists, feminists, socialists, communists, fascists.
The ultimate expose on the radical nature of our 44th president: "The Manchurian President: Barack Obama's Ties to Communists, Socialists and Other Anti-American Extremists." The best-seller as an audio book is also available.
Recently, Obama's entrenched racism toward America was revealed in a vile diatribe by one of his appointees, Shirley Sherrod, the USDA's Georgia director of rural development, who in a speech to the NAACP in March 2010 unearthed by Andrew Breitbart said:
He [a white farmer] had to come to me for help. What he didn't know while he was taking all that time trying to show me he was superior to me was I was trying to decide just how much help I was going to give him. ... I was struggling with the fact that so many black people have lost their farmland and here I was faced with having to help a white person save their land – so I didn't give him the full force of what I could do. I did enough.
Sherrod later said she realized that the dislocation of farmers is not about blacks and whites but about "haves and have-nots."
So, are we to ignore Ms. Sherrod's racism because she recanted by embracing Marxism and redistribution of wealth? What about the hundreds or thousands of unnamed white farmers Sherrod was supposed to help during her career? Did she "do enough" for them?
Liberals and the Democratic Party have always enjoyed a double standard regarding their central role in propagating the welfare state while exploiting racism, ignorance, poverty and class warfare in America. For example, President Obama, in a speech on race, March 18, 2008, said, "We've got a tragic history when it comes to race in this country. We've got a lot of pent-up anger and bitterness and misunderstanding. ... This country wants to move beyond these kinds of things."
What Obama meant in that speech was that he "has a lot of pent-up anger and bitterness and misunderstanding. ..." [And as president he] will not let "this country … move beyond these kinds of things." Following Leon Trotsky and Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals" Obama has mastered the art of perpetual societal revolution.
In less than two years, the Obama administration has caused this country cataclysmic and purposeful damage: TARP, $14 trillion debt, U.S. bailout now at $3.7 trillion, fighting two Vietnam wars (Iraq and Afghanistan), 17.5-percent actual unemployment, a de facto border war with Mexico on illegal immigration, over three months of oil gushing in the Gulf of Mexico and, worse than Jimmy Carter's "malaise," Obama has plagued America with an Orwellian dystopia where American exceptionalism, hope and Christian forbearance have devolved into despair, hopelessness and the politics of revenge.
Beginning in the 1880s, the Progressive Movement, which is embraced by the political left, had three key mandates for America: 1) Infiltrate the public schools and pervert the young minds of succeeding generations through moral relativism, evolution, Marxist economics and control by the education brownshirts – the teachers' unions; 2) Characterize the constitutional framers as a bunch of rich, racist white guys and assert that, because of slavery, de jure discrimination and misogyny, the Constitution has no binding authority in modern times; and 3) Characterize Christianity as a relic philosophy of the past with no current relevance or transcendental truth.
For the past 130 years, progressives have systematically perverted society, waiting to seize real power in the person of Barack Obama whose fascist politics represent the three classical mandates of progressivism:
Progressive re-education [Marxism]: "I've got two daughters, 9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby"; "I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody."
Anti-traditionalism: "[My] grandmother ... is a typical white person … and that's just the nature of race in our society."
Anti-Christianity: "Whatever we once were, we're no longer a Christian nation."
This is President Obama and the politics of revenge.
Obama knows that the GOP will likely retake both houses of Congress in the November 2010 elections; therefore, every policy and act passed by Congress must have the singular purpose of achieving the three mandates of progressivism. In just 18 months, Obama has confiscated more federal power and executive control than FDR did during his four terms as president – and FDR was frequently lambasted as a dictator, a socialist and a fascist.
Who, therefore, is Barack Obama?
President Obama is a vengeful, spoiled little man-child who, since he was raised and mentored by people who hate this country, derives perverse pleasure by seeing America on her knees. Obama's presidency is the revenge of liberal intellectuals, radicals and the countercultural hippies of the 1960s and '70s.
Obama's presidency is a protracted world war on America, and his fascist policies are systematically being implemented as a politics of revenge.
