Chapter Twenty of Keeping Score in America: The liberal confederacy
By Michael Moriarty
The Second American Civil War, as was the First Civil War, will not be about economics and cultural differences. The ultimate dividing issue, as was slavery, will be abortion.
Obama knows this and he is, with increasing desperation, trying to provoke a Second Civil War while he is still President of the United States. While he can still play the Abraham Lincoln role that Time Magazine gave him, while Tea Partiers such as Sarah Palin look like a rag-tag bag of rural "Rebs".
There is "Liberal Fascism" as Jonah Goldberg has defined the Progressively Marxist American Left.
Then there is the reality: The Pro-Abortion Liberal Confederacy mirroring 19th Century America's antebellum South.
Airs of aristocracy are the most immediate similarities that come to mind.
Conservatives have never been "sophisticated".
Ronald Reagan never was and never will be, particularly in the eyes of the American Left, "sophisticated".
Since Lincoln still defines the greatest of Republican Presidents, the Ivy Leagued and now Harvardized, Democrat Party carries no real similarities to Lincoln, despite what Time Magazine would like to have sold us.
Lincoln's backwoods unsophistication became America's most indelibly American style, the most defining American personality in history.
As my new lyric for the Third Movement of my An American Pilgrimage will declare to the tune of the Battle Hymn of The Republic: "Obama's being sold by Time like Lincoln's doppelganger!"
What would "Abe", if he were alive today, be thinking of the wholesale, legalized abortion contained in the Roe v Wade Decision?
I can't imagine Lincoln being anything other than pro-life.
Meanwhile Obama says about Lincoln, "Lincoln is a President I turn to often."
Yet Obama is the most aggressively pro-abortion President in the history of the United States.
With the help of Time Magazine, the sale of Barack Obama as a reincarnation of Abraham Lincoln?!
Here is a perfect example of the propaganda.
Obama, the most Liberal of Liberal Democrats can share the soul of a Lincoln Republican?!
Why? Because he's forced to.
The defeated post-war Confederate States turned entirely Democrat, if for no other reason than that party had already fought Lincoln in the Lincoln/Douglas Debates and then again with Stephen Douglas' failed run against Lincoln for the Presidency.
The Democrat, former-Confederacy's cri de Coeur: "Anything but Republican!"
And here, with Barack Obama, we have the most Leftist of Democrat Presidents trying to burnish a fading luster with any possible connection to Abraham Lincoln.
The Left is an increasingly worldwide abortion mandate.
As the original Southern Confederacy was pro-slavery, this worldwide Leftist Confederacy of the Progressive New World Order is pro-abortion.
In the plainest and simplest terms, that amounts to legalized murder.
No civilization can survive a formally instituted right of its citizens to commit infanticide.
Roe v Wade is law and order's inevitable suicide.
The end of the Golden Rule.
It is doing unto gestating infants what you would not want done to your own gestating infancy.
The inhuman and inhumane laws of a tyranny such as Red China? The American population is virtually begging for an increasingly tyrannical government by not opposing the Roe v Wade decision.
For giving its citizens a right to murder their own children, the government inevitably expects wholesale increases in its own, ultimately homicidal powers.
