I tried to email this to you but it won’t go so I apologize in advance for the lengthy post below. Feel free to work some magic to suit your site requirements.

This is one of the best op-eds I’ve seen yet describing the “Cold Civil
War” we are currently enjoying. Definitely a worthy read.

Elect Obama, Destroy America

Elect Obama, Destroy America

Political hyperbole? Right-wing alarmist propaganda?

Most protest movements begin as an organized expression of a legitimate
grievance — some perceived societal injustice, perhaps in response to
actual governmental or judicial tyranny. If the timing is right and the
issues resonate, successful protest movements can flourish and quickly
grow into full-fledged revolutions, and revolutions can often degenerate
into bloody civil wars.

Is America presently in the midst of such a potentially explosive
scenario? Unfortunately, the signs appear to be more and more ominous.
Since those traumatic events of September 11, 2001, this nation has been
resolutely dividing itself into two increasingly hostile and
irreconcilable camps. That reasonable ‘middle ground’, traditionally
amenable to compromise, has been steadily shrinking until it has become
all but hypothetical. It has been argued, not unconvincingly, that not
since those anxious years in the mid-Nineteenth Century, prior to our
perhaps inevitable, but monstrously destructive Civil War, has this
great country been so split asunder.

Once again, the split is to be between Republican and Democrat, Right
and Left, but this November’s election will not be between the
traditional Republican Right and the traditional Democratic Left; but
rather between an ascendant but conflicted New Left, and a beleaguered
and conflicted New Right. This New Age Democratic Party is torn between
the Hillary Clinton Political New Left of old-style Democratic politics
— i.e., pro-labor, pro-big government, “One World”, Socialistic agenda
— whose ultimate goal however appears to many to be primarily a
personal return to political power, and the charismatic Barack Obama’s
Cultural New Left, an idealistic social movement, which views political
power as simply a means to an end, the end being the implementation of
sweeping cultural changes in our American society. Each in their own way
are ideological products of the Sixties. But, as destructive as the
victory of either candidate would ultimately be to our cherished
American Dream, of the two, the prospects of an Obama presidency are by
far the most alarming.

Despite his oft-repeated promises to “bring America together”, by his
own words and actions and revealing personal associations — and that of
his prospective First Lady — for all of his undeniable charismatic
appeal, Barack Hussein Obama is simply a racist. His vision of America
is racist, and his solutions to our problems are racist. His appeal is
to those backward-looking, self-destructive forces of negativity and
defeatism inherent in all cultures at all times. His song is not a new
one, it’s that same same old seductive siren song of victimization which
has lured countless gullible societies to their doom — ‘You deserve
more than what you have, and you would have more than you presently
have, had you not been victimized by Them, the Enemy, the Other — the
colonialist, the Jews, or the Whites.’

Thus, in Barack Obama’s skewered vision, America is to be seen as a
battleground: it is to be Us versus Them again. The historically
suppressed colored peoples of this world versus the ruthless and
domineering post-colonialist Whiteys. His appeal is to the politically
naive or the purposefully ignorant, those who willfully, for their own
selfish motivations, deny all political and cultural progress and
achievement, no matter how obvious. Far from the high-minded rhetoric of
their humanistic speeches, they are simply the latest genus of that same
old species of self-serving politicians — devious, amoral and cynical.
They are intellectually, emotionally, and often financially invested in
defeat. They are the dangerous products of protest movements gone awry.

As history has repeatedly proven, once a nascent protest movement begins
to succeed and achieve a certain level of public acceptance and
validation, it can easily devolve into an entrenched political entity,
virtually indistinguishable from any other entrenched political entity,
with its own newly-acquired set of selfish goals and objectives. This
new political entity no longer has one single clear cut societal agenda
(i.e. the Cause); their efforts now become divided. One of their most
important goals inevitably becomes self-perpetuation — often by even
more ruthless means than the original tyranny against which they
successfully battled. At some point, this political survivalist
mentality can, and usually does, completely subsume the lofty goals of
the original movement. Thus a new — and perhaps even more dangerous
tyranny is born. A tyranny, like all tyrannies, whose primary mission is
to sustain itself at all costs.

How many times during these last few turbulent centuries have we seen
this fateful scenario play itself out on the world’s stage — in
Robespierre’s France, in Hitler’s Germany, Stalin’s Russia, Mao’s China,
Castro’s Cuba — all with invariably murderous consequences?

But what happens if the primary goals of the original protest movement
are actually realized? Does the movement then merely melt away and
quietly re-assimilate itself back into that society which it has
successfully transformed? Hardly. The movement’s leaders have too much
invested in the Cause to simply disband their troops and ride off into
the sunset. Through the Cause these leaders have achieved power, and
power seldom voluntarily walks off the stage.

But with their original goals accomplished and their real or theoretical
enemies defeated, what possible purpose can be served by their
continuing existence? They have now essentially become Rebels Without a
Cause. How, then, can they perpetuate their own legitimacy?

The answer of course is to ignore the reality of their victories and
create new enemies — or to somehow skillfully resurrect the old ones.

Virtually every successful revolutionary movement which has morphed into
a tyranny has sustained itself in this manner. The once fanatical
revolutionaries are now battling counter-revolutionaries. Their entire
raison d’etre has now become to prosecute this never-ending battle to
purportedly protect the achievements of the Glorious Revolution from its
innumerable reactionary enemies. This is an unalterable prerequisite to
their survival; there can be no successful tyranny without enemies. Thus
the Revolution becomes a perpetual ‘work-in-progress’, a never-ending
war. Now, ironically, to admit success would be to admit defeat. They
must continuously convince their followers, or subjects, that they are
constantly under siege from these relentless counter revolutionary
forces. The leaders are now to be viewed as society’s protectors,
protecting the helpless vulnerables from the predatory Enemy. And if
perchance there is no viable predatory enemy, then they must create one.

The American — and eventually, world-wide — protest movements of the
1960s provide us with a perfect example of this ultimately
self-destructive paradigm, which — due in large part to America finding
itself in the midst of yet another contentious and unpopular war — is
drawing us once again into its deadly vortex. The protest movements of
the Sixties produced some truly remarkable changes for the better in our
American society. But there was also a dark side. Part of the message of
the Sixties was the message of helplessness. It is “attempting to cure
the alcoholic by convincing him that he has good reason to drink”. Its
well-intentioned but deadly condescension has brought us the bleak
realities of inner city despair. The self-perpetuating crime-ridden,
drug-infested, inter-generational poverty and hopelessness of the
Seventies. And now, they are bringing us this devastating message once
again.

Does it matter that Barack Hussein Obama is at least partially black?
Yes, tremendously. Not to us, but to Barack Hussein Obama. It is the
very essence of his being, the banner of his Crusade. Without the ‘race
issue’, Barack Obama would be just another politician. It is his focus
and his justification. And, if we are not careful it will become ours:
there are many among us who have unwittingly bought into the false
premise that all of the existential threats we face in this turbulent
world are of our own making. They are not evidence of our real enemies
evil intentions, but rather the results of our own inherent racism and
prejudice. And they will proudly cast their vote for Barack Hussein
Obama merely to prove to themselves and to the world that they are not
racists.

However, it is certainly fair to ask, if race or color are still truly
overriding factors with the American public, then how is it that we
exhibited no such national hang-ups when coping with Colin Powell or
Condoleezza Rice? And if race and gender are still the salient issues
they were in the Furious Sixties, then how does one explain the current
makeup of our Democratic Presidential Candidates? One a woman, one a
black? It’s a pretty difficult argument to sustain.

To all but the most blind and biased liberals, the surprising victories
of the Feminist and Civil Rights movements of the Sixties have been
nothing short of astonishing. How anyone in today’s America can watch
television, go to a movie, listen to popular music, or read a national
newspaper and come away feeling that either blacks or women are
underrepresented is incomprehensible. Today there are women and blacks
— and, yes, lesbians and homosexuals and transgenders — in every
conceivable facet of American life — in the military, the media, the
business world, sports, entertainment, politics. Only those deeply
invested in a contrarian agenda would be cynical enough to deny it.

We, the United States of America, have come closer in this Twenty-First
Century to achieving a pure meritocracy than any other civilization in
history. But will this undeniable fact impress those self-doomed
generational victims and their professional enablers? Hardly. For these
aging warriors of the Sixties and their current ideological offspring
the very concept of victory is an unpleasant, perhaps even a deadly
admission. For without a battle, what use are warriors? If gender-based
and racial parity have actually been achieved, then what possible use do
we have for a Gloria Steinem or an Al Sharpton ? What, then, can these
poor dispossessed Bands of Brothers — or, more often, Sororities of
Sisters — do with their disbanded warriors ? What roles can there be in
today’s meritocracy for a NOW or an NAACP? Those roles which would
actually benefit man — or womankind, they have, to their everlasting
dishonor, steadfastly refused to even consider. These disenfranchised
organizations could help to change the world, but they cannot get past
their own deflated and bruised egos. The feminists could be rising as
one powerful voice in support of their oppressed sisters in Islam; and
the black activists could be wooing their brothers and sisters away from
the devastating consequences of a life lived as a victim. But they
don’t. They won’t. To keep themselves in power, to preserve their
personal tyrannies, they choose rather to perpetuate the myth, and seal
the plight of the true victims of this world.

To vote for Barrack Hussein Obama and his dark vision of America is to
vote for defeatism and negativity. It is willfully turning your back on
the hope and promise of this wondrous meritocracy we call America. It is
buying into the outrageous lie that America itself is the problem, and
that only by changing the whole concept of Americanism can we hope to
cure the evils of this world.

Would electing Barack Obama mean the destruction of America?

Only you can decide.
