We are all Barack Obamas now!
By Michael Moriarty
If even the Slavic republicanism of present day Russia, Ukraine and Georgia is against the wishes of the neo-Soviet leader, Vladimir Putin, what will the traditional republicanism of the United States do when trapped in the fist-clenching and patronizing Putin-like federalism of a woman who would make a "village" out of what once was the greatest republic in the world?
America as a bee-hive?!
President Hillary as a queen bee?!
All Americans as insects and her men as drones?!
I don't think so, either … but that doesn't mean Queen Hillary is not going to try.
"You can run, Barack," says Sen. Clinton these days, "but you can't hide!"
Nor can the rest of us hide.
Hillary will be President!
Sen. Clinton is the culminating star of a very disturbing book by Jonah Goldberg, Liberal Fascism , the last chapter of which is relevantly titled "We Are All Fascists Now". Mr. Goldberg traces fascism from its unannounced birth in the French Revolution through the Woodrow Wilson "Progressive" Presidency into Wilson's fellow Progressive, Franklin Delano Roosevelt and his New Deal, and America's war with Europe's version of the same, totalitarian mindset within Mussolini and Hitler. Thence, of course, Liberal Fascism flowers into the still unending war between the hard-line Left of Communism and the seemingly soft-line and maternal version of the same Left, the Liberal Fascism of Hillary Clinton. It is quite a trip … and quite a book!
The Protestant Reformation, I believe, has a great deal to do with facilitating fascism, or, as I have come to understand, "the politics of meaning", politics as religion itself. However, I can hardly fault Mr. Goldberg for any sin of omission. He had enough on his plate with what I believe is the undeniable evidence that the finger-pointing Left, not the Right, is the real Progressive Beast of American Fascism. However, I believe America's version of totalitarianism is no longer "liberal fascism" because the Progressive ingredients that have inspired the Clintons' bottomless lust for power are self-evidently neither liberal in Mr. Goldberg's classic definition of the word nor static. It is, more accurately, Progressive Fascism, the very kind that even Eleanor Roosevelt found revolting. If you don't believe me, see her remarks regarding her husband's Progressive Vice-President, Henry Wallace.
Barack Obama's ongoing collision with Rev. Wright is proof-positive that America's own collision with its home-grown brand of fascism has been inevitable. The African-American Left sabotaged its own sanest candidate, Barack Obama, and Rev. Wright's damnation of America soon translated into his deliberate destruction of his own parishioner's chances at the Presidency.
The Biblical allusions in this year's Democratic primaries are record-breaking. Governor Richardson of New Mexico is now Bill Clinton's "Judas" … and, as far as I can tell, Rev. Wright is the African-American version of Obama's "jealous Pharisee". Wright's recent "testaments" over the past weekend on the Bill Moyer's show, at the NAACP and before the Washington Press Club ended any chance Obama had of defeating Hillary at the convention. Wright is "crucifying" Obama's campaign.
I believe that Hillary's husband Bill so understood the psychology of the African-American community that his comparison of Obama to Jesse Jackson was intended to inspire all the would-be Jesse Jacksons of the African-American community, such as Rev. Wright, to stand up and put Obama in his place!
After all, as Rev. Wright said, Obama was just one parishioner within his church of thousands!!
Perhaps Rev. Wright unwittingly did the exceptionally gifted Obama a favor. It might have saved the Illinois Senator's life. Once out of the Presidential race, he is out of the way of the Clintons … and it is a very dangerous thing to ever stand in the way of the Clintons for too long.
We are now, all of us, Barack Obamas.
Because most of America will eventually and inevitably stand in the way of the Clinton Global Initiative to run a totalitarian, world empire.
So let's just get out of Hillary's way. The long leash she will demand as President … and get … will eventually be wrapped around her own neck and around the Progressive certainty of her supporters. Not before, however, we end up in a world war, one begun by Hillary to try avoiding the civil war she will most certainly provoke at home.
The issue of legalized abortion, or Roe v. Wade, as I've said before, will rise up to enflame Americans in the same way that slavery did … only in this instance, President Jefferson Davis of the Southern Confederacy will be portrayed by President Hillary Clinton of the by-then, entirely Progressive United States. Not being the America that I have ever known, now with legalized abortion, the United States is a third millennium version of the Southern Confederacy.
Insofar as the United States I know holds that all men are created equal, not gestated as possible candidates for abortion … the Clinton rebellion is a federalist's "progress" that utterly detaches itself from not only the republican checks and balances of the Constitution but our inalienable rights under the Declaration of Independence.
Then American history … or Fate … or, yes, God … will inspire a Republican "David" to rise up and defeat the Federalist/Progressive fascism of a female Goliath named President Hillary Clinton.
Where am I in all these Biblical allusions?
Hmmm … possibly Michael of Daniel 12:1, he who comes to "stand up for thy children".
