The Communist's Son Lectures on "Patriotism"

One reason I so loathe progressives is their sincere belief that the power of government is more inspiring than the power of the individual.

Speaking in Michigan this morning, Barack Obama just gave a speech—I wish I had the exact quote—where he used the analogy of a factory worker in Michigan, "a grown man" losing his job and losing his pension because of a tough economy, and declared it "unpatriotic."


Perhaps the son of an African communist who never stepped onto the shores of the continental United States until he was an adult, who then thrust himself into further radicalization through left-wing university indoctrination, radical foundations, Marxist activist groups, a racist cult, and the most corrupt political machine in modern America, shouldn't be lecturing America on patriotism.

In Barack Obama's America, the government will provide for your every basic need. Your medical care will be determined, regulated, and provided by the government. Your job may or may not be be a government job, and you might opt not even to have one. You'll be able to get by with generous government assistance, and with taxes going ever higher, the impetus to work hard for what the government will give most of for free will be gone.

Besides, why should we work hard to get rich, when Obama taxes the rich to death? It's far better that we all just exist, than see any of us excel.

That is the real promise of Barack Obama's vision, the death of American exceptionalism.

The spirit of America "to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield" was not a change that generations of foreign potentates and peons could believe in. As time moves forward their societies continue to moulder and rot from within, they proclaim their sophistication and culture and pray for an America that wasn't so brash and successful.

It's far easier for them to root for us to fall down to their level than it is to try to rise to ours. They love Barack Obama, because they think he'll make us more like them. He brings the promised comfort of shared mediocrity.

Barack Obama's supporters claim that he can be all things to all people if they simply believe. There is a word for that. Barack Obama is running as a placebo. He is a sugar pill wrapped in a bit of bitter to give it some authenticity, but he's not real medicine. He's never cured anything, and makes some conditions far more dire.

If he's elected the ills that plague the American economy will only get worse, and they'll get worse quickly. During the first Presidential debate, the candidate from Chicago who brags of new and larger government agencies could not think of one government program he's trim to tighten the government's belt during the present economic crisis... not one.

H doesn't understand our capitalist economy, but then, he doesn't understand America.

Barack Obama doesn't understand America because he's spent most of his lifeeither outside of it, or embracing those inside it who would see it destroyed.

He held his first political fundraiser in the home of a friends, as most infant politicians do. His friends however, are no ordinary friends. Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dorhn hate America, and hate capitalism.

They hated America enough—and loved communism so much—that Dorhn and her fellow radicals traveled to Cuba (PDF) to meet with Cuban and North Vietnamese communists during the height of the Vietnam War in order to learn to wage war against the United States.

They hated America enough to then formally declare war upon it, and during the course of their war, they led a group that bombed government buildings, murdered law enforcement officers, firebombed the home of a judge with his children inside, and plotted a domestic terror strike against the U.S. Army base at Fort Dix, New Jersey, that was only thwarted when the bombers set off on of the nail-studded pipe-bombs they were building by mistake.

Ayers and Dorhn and other radicals never gave up their war to overthrow out way of life, they simply recruited younger radicals and began a more subversive campaign, using the despot's favorite target of indoctrinating a nation's youth.

Bill Ayers wrote the grant proposal for the Chicago Annenburg Challenge, and brought along the community organizer son of a Kenyan communist to be the figurehead chairman of the board. A loyal follower of leftist radicals, Obama used his position to funnel more than $100 million of grant money meant for the education of Chicago schoolchildren into radical agitation and indoctrination efforts led by Communists such as Ayers and Mike Klonsky.

Communism is the goal, socialism under the name of the Che-loving "progressive" wing of the Democratic Party is merely a steeping stone, and woe be unto those who would utter these truths.

Smears, intimidation, and threats are the order of the day, and Obama doesn't even have any real power, yet. I have faith that the American people will recognize Barack Obama for what he is and what he chooses to be, and decides to send him back to be the mediocre Senator he was always meant to be.

Warts and all, we love America, because it will allow us to fail, time and again before we eventually suceed. You can make mistakes, pick yourself up, and chase your dreams, again and again and again until you get it right. In no other country on earth can a man so easily turn nothinginto unimaginable wealth through hard work, ingenuity, and a little luck. This guy's blog just turned him into a multi-millionaire overnight; another serial entrepreneur I spoke with on the phone earlier this week has dreams just as big, creating an entire business niche where none existed before.

This is American excellence in action. These are people who drive America. They are what make this country great, the first, and the leader in so many fields.

Barack Obama? Barack Obama wants to change all that.

Barack Obama is a false prophet preaching the shared mediocrity that he learned sitting for 20+ years in the pews of a radical church that hates what it calls "middleclassness." He is a man who has been an associate of a known domestic terrorist for 21 years, and who helped him funnel more than $100 million to indoctrination efforts to undermine Chicago's schools.

Barack Obama has never known the real heart of America outside the self-hating radicalism he so quickly embraced when he finally got here.

Lecture us on Patriotism, sir?

I think not.

15 million for a blog that averages 20 comments per post? No wonder our banking system is going down the tubes, morons run the banks, too.

Two Dogs, as a former outsourced phone customer service rep and customer service rep trainer for one of the banks that recently failed (the most commonly used name for said bank has four letters and rhymes with poo-poo), you're absolutely right. Morons are running banks.

the problem with this post is that is just ded wrong. There is no free market when taxpayers pay money that is used for supports for oil, farming etc. Take away supports and the market will be free.

Obama was born an American citizen and all the stupid crap you say about him jut does not wash.

Whikle you were busy talking about the capitalist free market system, Congress just under the table) authorized billions for the three auto makers. Now that is a free market! Did they give you your needed money if you wanted some help.

Govt insurance is not govt takeover! FDIC is govt insurance. Social Security is govt insurance etc but you dismiss it all as what is your house worth on the market? and your share of the national deficit your kids and grandkids must pay?

and don't bs me about love of nation etc, pal: I have served in not one but two wars! Now you go to one, patriot.

"the problem with this post is that is just ded [sic] wrong."

That's where I stop reading -- incompetence discredits you and your rant.

CCG you want to talk about handouts?
Obama's tax cuts for so-called 95% of Americans is hogwash. His plan is not tax cuts as he likes to is tax credits in many forms going to those who don't pay or pay very little income taxes. Guess where that money comes from the 5-10% that pay the vast majority of taxes.
It's called wealth redistribution and that is Socialism.

You may also try researching the candidate Obama. Yankee is spot on.

It makes me laugh to see liberals supporting a man who has NO executive experience unless you include his Directorship with the Chicago Annenberg Challenge with his buddy William Ayers, the terrorist, at his side.

I would challenge you to name just one of Obama's "friends" and "mentors" who has shown an outward and unabashed love of America....

Most of Obama's mentors and relationships include people who follow the book of Socialism and Alinsky principles. They hate America as She is and will lie to transform her as they see fit.

Do your own research if you don't believe me...look up William Ayers, Saul Alinsky, Louis Farakkhan, ACORN, Weather Underground, Jeremiah Wright, Raila Odinga, Cloward-Piven Strategy,Michael name a few.

Sharp, I never said anything about handouts.

And if you search the archives from when I was an active commenter here (sort of fell away when CY had to shut down commenting for a while due to spammers), you might learn something about my political opinions.

Here's a hint... CCG stands for Christian Conservative Geek.

Next time make sure of the target you're aiming at before shooting your mouth off.

Posted by: C-C-G at October 2, 2008 07:27 PM

Wait, CCG's a liberal? I'm more confused than Obama at an NRA rally...

Posted by: Conservative CBU at October 2, 2008 10:10 PM

I owe you a HUGE apology.

I looked at the wrong name. I am somewhat new to reading this blog, so I kindly ask you to disregard my comments toward you.

They were meant for the David Still post...I must admit even his post was a bit hard to understand, but I think he is an Obama supporter.

Call me an over zealous commenter.

Sorry CCG.

Posted by: sharprightturn at October 2, 2008 10:43 PM

No sweat, Sharp. I kinda figured that was what happened. All is forgiven.

Posted by: C-C-G at October 2, 2008 10:54 PM

Hey, CCG, should we keep him? (Just kidding, sharprightturn)

Someone who can admit a mistake with grace and style is very worthwhile in my book!

I assume the Hussein O supporters also support putting a 'born alive' baby in the trash to die. That may be patriotic for an Islamist, but it's not a patriotic American or even a human.

Your health care will become the same, it cost a few bucks to cure you, forget it and die. Check a case in Socialist Oregon. It has happened there. Refusing to pay for medical care for a young man because it 'cost' too much in dollars.

By the way I've been reading today that Hussein has taken $200 million from the terrorist and terrorist nations. All illegal campaign contributions. Guess that's why the democrats wanted the FEC neutered.

CY hit all the stuff that troubles me about Obama.

What troubles me more is how the media has refused to look at any of this. I have been hearing Hannity say this is the year that the media in America died. About three months ago, I was titling all my media blog posts with "The Media as a Corpse" or "The Dead Media" --- it is rotting.

A last note on Obama, now that I know more about his biographies and background ---

--- I was lucky enough to live in Honolulu for three years --- so I don't need the media to tell me how ludicrous it is for Obama to align himself with the oppressed black masses and the anger that comes with that ---- based on who he was living with and where in Hawaii.

There might be some, but you'd be damn hard pressed to find a better place to grow up mixed race or black. There weren't many blacks around. But I was white and in the minority in most places I walked around. Hawaii is one of the most diverse communities in the whole nation - and an island paradise.

Obama notes how he was gaining so much understanding about the US from reading Malcom X and Dr. King and leftist books on the social ills of the US (mostly prior to that period ---- Obama having come of age after the Civil Rights Movement had already gained much for the nation). But, living in Hawaii - he'd have to get that stuff at that level out of books........

To me, it's a joke.

It is either self-delusion or someone who wants to ride the coattails of people who really have suffered poverty and racial discrimination. Milking their discontent to gain political power by pretending you are one of them...

That's one of the planks of the contemporary Democrat party, isn't it?

Hey, CCG, should we keep him? (Just kidding, sharprightturn)

Given the way so many on both the right and the left run screaming from admitting that they're fallible (read: human), anyone with the cojones to admit and apologize for a goof publicly is more than welcome here, at least in this commenter's book.
