Who deserves the credit for the high division / low morale that hovers over our country like a dark cloud?
A once proud and hopeful nation is now fractured and frustrated. We are a people mired in doubt and uncertainty.
Our divider-in-chief has exhibited a complete lack of leadership, bordering somewhere between disdain and indifference for the citizens to whom he has sworn full allegiance and servitude. Our security, protection, and representation has been unjustly exchanged for a radical new world void of true tolerance or individuality.
Fear and paranoia now reigns, as the shared values that enabled America to become a great melting pot of culture and diversity have been discarded. A climate of suspicion and mistrust has emerged as subtle seeds of racial and civil unrest continue to bring America to the brink of implosion.
The deceit and propaganda of a treasonous and tyrannical executive branch continues to inflame the tension of our polarized society. A governmental provocation fostering the widespread internal strife of our diversified nation seems to be the ultimate end of this radically reckless brand of leadership.
Back in 2009, a majority of white America was fully behind the president. There was much fanfare and enthusiasm as he assumed his place in the Oval Office. The New York Times proclaimed that Obama’s victory had swept “away the last racial barrier in American politics.”
Despite America’s willingness to overcome the racial divide once and for all, the discouraging truth is that this president relies on chaos and instability. How else can he fulfill his ‘Dreams From My Father’ here in America?
Obama was partially raised and mentored by Frank Marshall Davis, a writer and poet whose devotion to Communism was matched only by his hatred for whites.
Does our president secretly loathe those people who enthusiastically embraced him? Is the ‘race card’ now the ultimate ‘trump card’ for men like Obama?
Based on a few of the passages from his aforementioned autobiography, it appears that Obama may have a few unresolved issues related to race, equality, social restoration, and our rule of law:
“I ceased to advertise my mother’s race at the age of twelve or thirteen, when I began to suspect I was ingratiating myself to whites.”
“The emotions between the races could never be pure; even love was tarnished by the desire to find in the other some element that was missing in ourselves. Whether we sought out our demons or salvation, the other race would always remain just that: menacing, alien, and apart.”
“That’s just how white folks will do you. It wasn’t merely the cruelty involved; I was learning that black people could be mean and then some. It was a particular brand of arrogance, an obtuseness in otherwise sane people that brought forth our bitter laughter. ”
“…anger’s a requirement for the job. The only reason anybody decides to become and organizer. Well adjusted people find more relaxing work.”
“In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific reassurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”
“But you see, a rich country like America can perhaps afford to be stupid.”
I’m not reading any true love or regard for America in any of these quotes! But this is his perception of America; and based on what we’ve seen, it’s not surprising.
It is no wonder he’s been leading a movement to level the playing field. How vicious is his intent? To what degree may he ‘race-bait’ and ‘falsely accuse’ to achieve his goals? How many (regardless of race, color, or creed) will actually benefit from his agenda? Does he truly represent any race? Or is he merely doing the bidding of those who harbor a general animosity of America?
When bonehead Alan Grayson recently used the ‘divide and conquer’ propaganda tactic to unfairly categorize the Tea Party, Allen West, who also happens to be African American, rightly exposed the hypocrisy -
I woke up this morning sure I would see a statement from the first African-American President condemning Florida Democrat Rep. Alan Grayson for his use of a burning cross and Klansmen in a fundraising email…..
President Obama, Sen. Harry Reid, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, and DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz lead the party who gave us the Ku Klux Klan and the burning cross symbol. Their silence is consent and demonstrates that today’s liberal progressives are just as comfortable using these images as their predecessors.
The party of Lester Maddox, George Wallace, and Huey Long Jr. is alive and well. Sadly enough, Rep. John Lewis and other “faux” black leaders are showing their true colors. Damn glad my parents inspired me to depart the plantation.
As a Christian, I do not hate President Obama. Nobody on this side of the grave is beyond redemption. Pastor John Newton (writer of the classic hymn ‘Amazing Grace’) was a ruthless slave trader prior to his spiritual conversion and subsequent role in the successful abolitionist campaign to end slavery in England. But a true restoration requires a lethal dose of supernatural justice.
“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.”
