Chapter Eighteen of Keeping Score in America: The scales of American suicide
By Michael Moriarty
How Allen West balances the over-two-hundred year scales of American injustice? That is what I'll try to share with you in this all-too-brief essay.
Slavery as America's oldest cross to bear has been with the United States since that nation's birth. The scars that slavery has left on America seem, at times, even deeper and more indelible than its Eighteenth and Nineteenth Century, Confederate realities. No one comprehends that national affliction within the American soul with more exquisitely balanced understanding than Allen West.
No one understands White America's survivor's guilt and the disastrous consequences, no one sees into Guilty White America's future more piercingly than Alan West.
His recent defense of First Lieutenant Clint Lorance is the most undeniable example of former Army Colonel West's divinely American sense of justice.
Col. West commanded young men such as Clint Lorance and did so in the very same theater Lt. Laurance had served in, the very same nightmare in which Col. West had fought and defended his very own unit in. As all or most of us know, Allen West is defending a fellow soldier against the undeniably questionable policies of America's first black President, Barack Hussein Obama.
No one is more aware than Allen West of how his own eloquent defense of Lt. Lorance utterly erases any issues of race involved in this matter. He has singlehandedly given Lt. Lorance and his cause an instantly even playing field.
It is up to us to not let the injustice to American service men everywhere go unnoticed, unattended to and the verdict un-reversed.
Allen West calmly but assuredly lays out the evidence for the President's utterly infuriating double standards of justice.
Allen West reminds us of how long it has taken the case of Nidal Malik Hasan. The single-handed and cold-blooded author of the Ft. Hood massacre, Nissan slaughtered 13 fellow service men and injured more than 30 others. It took 4 years to try that assassin, during which the Obama administration tried to spin-doctor the entire case from the terrorist act it was and into a psychiatric matter.
The undeniably major psychiatric problem, as Mary Matlin begins to point out, is America having elected a "narcissistic sociopath", Barack Obama, to become President of the United States.
What suicidal mania exists in America or has existed for decades that the United States, the freest and most powerful nation in the world, would end up with the likes of Barack Hussein Obama as its President?!
Barack Hussein Obama's name alone raises a million red flags.
The President's own, personal revelations, particularly his seemingly bottomless admiration for his Communist father?!
Oh, well, that is now almost five years of blood under the bridge.
From Nixon to Obama, with the momentary exception of Ronald Reagan, America has been enacting a 40-year-long, ritual suicide!
The coup de grâce appears to be not only the economic homicide of Obama's first four years but a complete military surrender of America to her enemies not only in the Middle East but in the terrifyingly enlarged, Communist world.
No one knows that in more painful detail than Allen West.
Why Allen West is not President of the United States and Barack Hussein Obama is can only be explained by God. Whatever object lesson God is allowing the Devil to put us through must, if we hold to our faith, become clear eventually.
One thing is ruthlessly clear: much of the American population wishes to destroy America. If not, why elect a President who is doing just that?
