The inevitably Marxist zoo IV: The infallibility of progressive good intentions
By Michael Moriarty
The President's recent speech in Cairo … right … what's to say?!
Well, myth has it that Tonto once said to the Lone Ranger, near the end of their legendary collaboration, "What you mean we, white man?!"
Curiously enough, that was when the two of them were both facing not American Indians but Mexican bad guys.
The entire Judeo-Christian civilization received a similar warning from President Obama in Cairo when, in a flamingly non-democratic Egypt, our POTUS declared, more eloquently than any Progressive had before, that "progress", at least during his reign, means an international equality among all nations and all cultures; or, as the pundits now call it, "moral equivalence".
Hmmm, oh, he says he'll defend America when attacked but Islam and Israel are equivalent cultures under an Obamatized New World Order and he, as peacekeeper, will not show any special deference to the Judeo-half of the Judeo-Christian civilization.
The President says he's Christian, although his last minister, Rev. Wright, had some pretty nasty things to say about America, accusations so hateful you would almost think the Reverend a Muslim.
"We're not a Christian nation, nor a Jewish nation, nor a Muslim nation … " Right, but he did inflate the size of Islam in America.
A mere, brazenly ingratiating oversight.
Between the Cairo speech and our "Speaker's" previous promise to meet with Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad "without pre-conditions" -- "naïve" is still the most commonly used description for our President
Meanwhile, back in the States, Obama's "Change" has escalated from George W. Bush's "Chump Change" budget to four times that size.
We're actually "all out of money" … so, we'll just print some more!
Naïve perhaps but … well … he's our President!
Maybe it's a "father problem". His still burning loyalties to his father, a Muslim, reveal themselves in his foreign policies. We can all understand that, can't we?
As for our increasing financial dependence on a Communist dictatorship in China?
That's not a psychological problem.
Obama's a Marxist, which means he's not actually a Communist … yet, he's just not afraid of Communism because Communism has a few, good Marxist ideas in it.
A lot of Ivy League graduates are Marxist. That they are all self-destructively naïve does not erase the fact that they are now all in power and have been since President Reagan left office. From Bush 41 to Clinton to Bush 43 and now Obama – all Ivy League graduates of one sort or another (mostly Yale) – the surrender to Marxist remedies is now complete with Obama.
Though even former Soviet operatives are warning Obama of the dangers of such economic brinksmanship and even though Red China itself is backing off from the Progressive Democratic Party's suicidal spending – what are friends for – President Obama, even after admitting America is out of money, promises to help almost any part of the Islamic world if only it would stop hanging out with "violent extremists".
He wouldn't call them "terrorists" because … well, even though they are terrorists, President Obama would prefer we think of al-Qaida, Hamas and the Taliban as the sponsors of sporadic outbursts, eruptions of a frequently justifiable anger.
Hmmm, indeed. He's good, isn't he, this President of ours? As we are noticing with increasing frequency, "it's all in the euphemisms" (see my performance of the lawyer, Eric Dorf, in the television mini-series Holocaust) .
I once knew a lawyer in Detroit just like the President, a charming "counselor" who later admitted to being a card-carrying Communist.
That was precisely the moment I ended the association, and, believe it or not, I was a Liberal in those days.
However, the two of them, Obama and, well, this guy, they both have every right now, even as O'Reilly of Fox News has corroborated, to believe in any ideology they please, and there are tens of thousands, maybe millions of Americans who agree with them. I'm not sure, however, they should be in charge of America's future.
Too late now!!
So let's just quit whining, allow the Congressional, Judicial, Executive Left and its mainstream press do to America what America has been all too eager to vote into complete power.
As I've said before, most numerously, America was no longer America after the 1973 Roe v Wade decision legalizing abortion. It is no more America than it was during the 89 years preceding the end of the Civil War, a domestic holocaust or offering up to God of 600,00 American lives because of the sin of slavery.
What price America will pay for legalized abortion, I have no idea.
I do know, however, that the biggest price for America's formerly legalized slavery is about to be paid. That price is the ultimate ending of anything that is essentially American. It almost sounds reasonable, doesn't it? It's certainly "Change" that the Marxists "can believe in".
Another thing for certain is the inevitable effort of a Marxist zoo in Washington to make abortion an increasingly enforced practice in the United States.
The infallibility of Progressive good intentions, mirroring the Leftist Purity of Red Beijing, such Marxist "virtues" will demand it.
President "Cool" getting colder … or "That's the end of the nice guy!"
