The Left Is a Fascist Cult

Item Number 1: The Parkland Scooby Gang (“Let’s unmask the reveal villain … surprise… it’s the NRA!” “And we would have gotten away with it if it weren’t for you shrill, androgynous kids!”) has decided to urge their fellow party members to wear flashy armbands so they can recognize each other. Soon to follow, goose-stepping lessons and snappy black uniforms.

Item Number 2: A former Executive Editor of the New York Times (the foreign-owned newspaper that seeks to influence American elections) admits to keeping an Obama fetish-totem with her at all times.

It’s easy to look at what’s happening in Washington DC and despair. That’s why I carry a little plastic Obama doll in my purse. I pull him out every now and then to remind myself that the United States had a progressive, African American president until very recently. Some people find this strange, but you have to take comfort where you can find it in Donald Trump’s America. 

She’s an Operating Thetan in the Church of Obamatology.

By the way, you have heard, of course, that Cult Leader Obama is being offered millions to do a show or something for Netflix? Because someone had to go an ask, “Come on, what could be worse than Chelsea Handler” while someone else was holding a beer.

Once, this great human being was our president. We didn’t deserve him. – Lesbian sooper-genius Sally Kohn, at the inauguration of the Obama Foundation

No, we probably did deserve him, what with slavery and Karma and such. But that’s not the way Obama cultist Sally Kohn looks at her Lord and Savior, Barack Obama. And she is not alone.

I think the reason the left misunderstands Trump is they think that his supporters have the same cultish devotion to him the way they had to their small, mahogany godling. And certainly there are a few, but the vast majority see Trump as a flawed man who might be able to push the country in the right direction on a few things. By and large, they do not see Trump as the sort of Superlative Messianic Figure that so many on the left saw in Barack Obama:

  • “”Many spiritually advanced people I know identify Obama as a Lightworker, that rare kind of attuned being who has the ability to lead us not merely to new foreign policies or health care plans or whatnot, but who can actually help usher in a new way of being on the planet, of relating and connecting and engaging with this bizarre earthly experiment. These kinds of people actually help us evolve. They are philosophers and peacemakers of a very high order, and they speak not just to reason or emotion, but to the soul.” – Mark Morford, SFGate columnist
  • To hear the president who is in some ways a father figure speak to that – the tears came down like with many people in our families,” – Andrew Sullivan, author of “The First Gay President” which was published alongside cover art featuring President Obama adorned with a halo.
  • “Apostle Barack, the next young leader with a new cause, had been taken to the mountaintop and allowed to see over the other side. He had the answers to unlock the kingdom of “heaven here on earth” for his followers.” – Author Barbara Thompson
  • “Obama is, of course, greater than Jesus” – Politiken
  • “I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the country, above above the world, he’s sort of God.” Newsweek editor Evan Thomas

So, here’s what’s been going on with the leading candidates from both parties (plus one wannabe Napoleon).

This may be an election in which determining the lesser of two evils is nearly impossible. If neither party nominates anyone sane, I will be taking a good long look at the Libertarians this time around.

I was just editing Book 12 of my SciFi ebook series and I had totally forgotten than Donald Trump, in hologram form, makes a cameo appearance. He is the host at a giant casino on Ganymede that features the solar system’s largest and classiest sexateria.

So let me get this right:

The administration—whose latest foray into unobstructed, unlegislated, we’ve-got-this, go-it-aloneism was the fabulously ‘effed up roll-out of—is going to make 2014 the year of the Executive Branch takes on the world without the messiness of involving the People’s Branch of the federal government?

Is Its Smear Campaign a Sign of Democratic Disarray?

Democrats and their allies in the legacy media keep telling us that the GOP is in dire straits.  And I’ll grant that my party has work to do.  But, I do wonder if the president’s party is not in straits even more dire than that of is political rival, its problems papered over by the strong support Barack Obama enjoys in some segments of society (especially in the various newsrooms that dot America’s coasts).

If the Democrats have such an appeal with the American people — and are so confident in their message, why must they regularly resort to dishonest demagoguery, misrepresenting Republican stands on issues and regularly calling their partisan rivals “extreme.” Bear in mind that Barack Obama did not win reelection running on his record but by demonizing Mitt Romney, airing over a quarter-billion dollars of attacks ads — before the party conventions.

Saw two examples of this yesterday on Facebook:

Is Obama’s Neverending Campaign Hurting his Reputation?

Question for the day: does his perpetual campaigning help compromise the Democrat’ “Reputation for Integrity”?

And please tell me how did Mr. Obama acquired such a reputation? Through his actions? (What specific actions helped him earn it?)

Word Clouds

I admit the ‘word cloud’ technique is a pretty sketchy way to analyze a speech. Still, it can be fun. Zero Hedge gives us an example. From their analysis of a few speeches:

  • Reagan 1981 [inaugural speech]: – ‘believe’, ‘freedom’, and ‘government’
  • Schumer 2013: – ‘America’, ‘Today’, ‘Finished’, ‘People’
  • Obama 2013 [inaugural speech]: “America People Must Believe”

Got it, America? You must believe!

But the main point, for me, is simply the prevalence of “must” in Obama’s speech. As others have remarked: In his vision of the world, no one who opposes him ever does so in good faith. Whatever he believes is an imperative.

UPDATE: A cloud on Hillary’s Benghazi hearing. “People think know committee SEC”… Huh? It sounds like they spent much of that hearing on the question of what people knew or thought when, but why would the SEC pop into it?

Barack Hussein Obama: War Criminal

Well, that is what we would be hearing if there were a Republican President with this same war-mongering record of death.

Drone strikes dramatically increased after US President Barack Obama took office in 2009. There were only five drone strikes in 2007, but the number rose to 117 in 2010 before declining to 46 last year. Exact casualty figures are difficult to verify. Most of those killed are militants, but some civilians have also been killed.

More innocent children have been killed by the drones of Tyrant Boy-King Barack Hussein Obama than by the guns of Adam Lanza, Jared Loughner, James Holmes, Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris combined. By far.

Obama’s remarks in Michigan & his partisan nature

The decision that President Obama, the head of the federal government, made yesterday to wade into the politics in one state seemed a defining one.

Instead of being the postpartisan political healer he claimed to be in the 2008 election, he seems to feel that he just has to interject himself into contentious political issues, not as the mediator, but as the combatant.

He seems more interested in playing partisan politics than in working with the opposing party to effect a consensus.

RELATED:  Michigan Seems Like A Dream To Me Now. (Via Instapundit.)

ALSO SORT OF RELATED: Protesters to march on Michigan capitol over “right-to-work” vote  (Note how Yahoo!’s editors put right-to-work in quotation marks.  Did they ever so reference the “Affordable Care Act”?

UPDATE: How civil:  Democrats threaten violence on Michigan House floor.  The article includes this interesting factoid, “Michigan has both the highest unionization and unemployment rates in the Midwest.”

ADDENDUM:  I had meant this to be a longer post, addressing the frustration we Republicans feel in the wake of Obama’s victory that we’ll be subject to four more years of his divisive rhetoric, but by the time I got to this post, I had little energy to write.  I have been working a great deal on my fantasy epic and have now completed (and am busy editing) the second chapter of the epic and finding myself scribbling notes for the third chapter.

Those who supported Obama’s election the most suffer the most from his policies

Although Barack Obama saw his support among twentysomethings decline from 2008 to 2012, he still won a solid majority of those voters.

Their support seems based more on a blind faith in the incumbent than in an appreciation for his accomplishments. “The overall unemployment rate for 18-29 year olds for November 2012 is 10.9 percent“, with one out of every eight young Hispanics out of work and nearly one in five young African-Americans out of work.

Obama did much better among young Hispanic- and African-Americans than he did among white Americans.

The study linked above showed that the unemployment rate for twentysomwethings “would rise to 16.4 percent” if nearly two million young voters hadn’t dropped out of the workforce:

The declining labor force participation rate has created an additional 1.7 million young adults that are not counted as “unemployed” by the U.S. Department of Labor because they are not in the labor force, meaning that those young people have given up looking for work due to the lack of jobs.

That the Democrat’s support slipped among young voters suggests that at least some have woken up to the reality of Hope and Change™.

After 4 years of Hope & Change™, Nation Is More Divided Than Ever

Four years after Hope and Change™, we are, as a county, more divided than ever.  A liberal friend posted on my Facebook page that Mitt Romney makes her sick.  How did she come to gain that opinion of a good, decent and compassionate man?

Other friends have called him a “vulture capitalist” or repeated slurs about his faith.  Where do these slurs get started?  Have top Democrats differentiated themselves from such rhetoric?  Has Obama himself asked his supporters to tone it down and to focus on the issues?

No, instead, he tells them that “voting is the best revenge.”  For that Democrat, as Ed Morrissey puts it, Spite and revenge is the new hope and change:

. . . Obama’s “revenge” remarks are at least as revealing about this campaign, and of Obama’s approach to both this election and to public policy, as were Romney’s 47 percent statements. The president, in both his campaign and his administration, has gone fully populist, attempting to divide the country along class lines as a distraction from his record in his term in office. In fact, the best description of Obama’s politics since September 2011 is “the politics of revenge.”

Read the whole thing.  (Via Instapundit.)

ADDENDUM:  If you have friends on both sides of the political aisle, just take a gander at your Facebook feed, you’ll often wonder what happened to civil discourse.  Our side abandons civility too sometimes.  But, at least the GOP presidential nominee is not encouraging such rhetoric.

Obama exacerbates nation’s divisions

From his first appearance on the national stage, his key-note speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, Barack Obama has cast himself a post-partisan figure who could transcend the polarized politics of the past dozen years or so.  That image was central to his appeal in his 2008 bid for the White House — and likely caused many wavering centrist voters to shift their support to him in the campaign’s closing days.

They might not share his politics, but they did like him as a man, at least as the man he projected himself to be.  He has not governed as he campaigned, first pushing a “stimulus” bill crafted by Democratic legislators — without Republican input — in the back rooms of Capitol Hill.  When a Republican Senator questioned him about the bill, instead of meeting that challenge in a civil fashion, the Democrat retorted, “I won.

This was the first of his many partisan retorts.  And the partisan pugnacity that defined his presidency would define his reelection campaign.  At least since August 2011, his campaign aides made clear that their reelection strategy would focus on destroying the then-likely (and now-current) Republican presidential nominee.

Obama is closing the campaign the same way he began it  — on a negative note.  Parts of his speeches sounds like they’ve been recycled from the 2008 campaign, as if he’s still running against George W. Bush, only he has sharpened his attacks. He attacks his opponent as a stand-in for the former president, strongly suggesting that, nearly four years after the Texas Republican left office, he’s still responsible for incomes which declined and deficits which increased under Obama’s watch.

And then yesterday, he asked his supporters to vote, not out of love for country but out of revenge.

If Obama wins,” John Nolte writes, “I don’t know how he plans to govern after running the nastiest and most divisive presidential campaign in memory. He’s looked nothing like a president during this campaign and everything like a nasty, Chicago union thug.” (more…)

In a democracy, Mr. President, voting is not “revenge”

Earlier today, Bruce blogged about Mitt Romney’s “barnburner of a” closing argument.  It was a most upbeat speech.

By contrast, in his closing speech, President Obama said, “Voting is the best revenge.

Which candidate is best qualified to unite the nation after this divisive campaign?

UPDATE:  The Weekly Standard John McCormack calls this revenge talk . . .

. . . strange rhetoric from any politician, especially one who sold himself to the country as the candiate of hope and change. In fact, before Obama’s remarks today, I had only ever heard one politician encourage people to vote out of revenge: failed 2009 congressional candidate Dede Scozzafava. 

UP-UPDATE: The winning argument?

UP-UP-UPDATE: John Hinderaker doubts that “Obama’s blunder” will “tip the scales with many voters, but in the closing days of the campaign it serves as a useful reminder of Obama’s dark side.

UP-UP-UP-UPDATE: Obama campaign struggles to explain ‘revenge’ remark It’s not good to be playing defense in the closing days of a campaign.

UP-UP-UP-UP-UPDATE: “Revenge for what?” Jonah Goldberg asks. Read the whole thing. It’s short.

FROM THE COMMENTS: Our reader Kurt

. . . was thinking about Obama’s whole anger and revenge thing and what I earlier called the “divide and conquer” approach, but it occurred to me that the better term is really “divide and agitate” since he only seems to know how to make people angry, resentful and worked up. (more…)

Poll finds Romney better able to fix political gridlock

Posted by B. Daniel Blatt at 10:40 pm - October 31, 2012.
Filed under: 2012 Presidential Election,Obama Hopenchange

I am always struck when Yahoo!, on its home page, links a story beneficial to Mitt Romney, this time offering a data point similar to observations made by prominent pundits:

Romney’s message,” report Connie Cass and Jennifer Agiesta

a vote for Obama is a vote for more gridlock — seems to be getting through. An Associated Press-GfK poll shows that almost half of likely voters — some 47 percent — think the Republican challenger would be better at ending the logjam Thirty-seven percent say Obama would.

37%? That’s far fewer than the percentage supporting the president.  It seems even a good chunk of Obama’s supporters know that lacks the skills he, in his last campaign, claimed to possess. (more…)

Ronald Reagan played to our hopes, Barack Obama to our fears

A reader in Nevada reports hearing an ad that “went something like ‘what will you tell your friends if you don’t vote and they lose their healthcare, etc., etc.'”  Reading about his ad, I was reminded of the creepy “Future Children Project” ad.  When you read the lyrics, you can see just how much it, like the Nevada ad, plays on people’s fears, not their hopes.

Both were about the parades of horribles that Democrats imagine happening should Mitt Romney win next week.

More evidence that Barack Obama is not the Democrats’ Ronald Reagan.

This is how they Gipper wanted to be remembered:

Whatever else history may say about me when I am gone, I hope it will record that I appealed to your best hopes, not your worst fears, to your confidence, rather than your doubts.

Go back and read the Gipper’s speeches from the 1984 campaign.  Watch his campaign commercials.  You’ll see that he wanted to be remembered the way that he governed, the way that he appealed to the American people.

He didn’t campaign on the parade of horribles that he imagined taking place if he lost.  He campaigned on how America would improve if he won.

UPDATE:  Contrast Reagan’s campaign commercials with this recent one from Obama.

On September 11, 2012,” blogs William Kristol,

Rasmussen Reports had President Obama’s job approval at 52 percent approve, 47 percent disapprove. Today, October 27, the numbers have reversed—47 percent approve, 52 percent disapprove. The economic news over these past six weeks has been on the whole a bit better than expected, so it’s hard to believe that’s the cause of the change. The campaign and the debates could of course have played a role. But the main real-world event that might have affected voters’ approval or disapproval of President Obama’s job performance is Libya.

Maybe Kristol’s right.  Maybe it is Libya.

Or, perhaps, it’s something else.  Perhaps, it’s that then on September 11, barely a week after the Democratic National Convention, a good number of Americans saw Obama as the legacy media covered the Democratic convention.

They saw an upbeat Obama.  And they liked that image of the incumbent.  Only, in the next month, with the trickling out of news from Libya, accompanied by his first languid and listless, then his angry and accusatory, debate performances. they saw how how much their idealized image of the incumbent differed from the reality of the man.

The campaign/media created image of Barack Obama has always been more palatable to Americans than the reality of his administration.
