Skip to comments.Obama is Now a Conservative!
Posted on 11/05/2008 3:18:27 PM PST by The Conservative Yogini
You know, I had a co-worker today tell me that Obama is a conservative. No, really. As crazy as it may sound, it makes total sense that he would come to that conclusion. This is the conclusion that many other progressives will come to. It is very clear to me that a primary goal of the progressive movement is to utterly destroy the conservative party and they will do it by virtue of abrogating its nomenclature for themselves. "No no no," they will say, "WE are the centrist and the TRUE conservative party. They, those Bush extremists, are the evil backwards ones hell bent on destroying us with their hate-mongering divisiveness. "
The Obama revolution is not just Change of administration. It is a change of values, a transvaluation of values. It is a change in the language of our culture. THIS is what is truly revolutionary about this election, not that Obama is a black man or that he is ultra left wing. That he is ultra left wing has become a non-issue in this election. People don't care. What we do have is a reworking, a redefinition, a usurpation of conservativism. There is, first of all, the "old GOP partisan conservativism" and now, may I introduce, the new "progressive conservativism". It is, folks, the true manifestation of "compassionate conservativism" and its form and function has been created to destroy any remnants of true American conservativism as we know it.

Right is Wrong, Left is Right, Good is Bad ... “Notice a Problem?”
My sister heard a fellow teacher tell a student that Obama was against abortion when the kid said he was sad Obama won because he was for abortion.
I had a friend tell me basically the same thing last night. She’s a republican and voted for McCain, but said that she felt that 0bama was a conservative democrat and McCain a liberal Republican. Well, I told her she got the second part right and told her that 0bama was the most liberal senator. I told her some of his beliefs and she was shocked to say the least.
And Michelle is really Hulk Hogan.
From my cold dead hand will they have to pry out the true definition of conservatism to “reform” it. Hell with you, liberals.
We stand for:
1. Limited government powers
2. Less centralized government spending
3. Less taxes
4. Peace through strength
5. Defining life at conception
If they can champion these views and others like them, then they are more than welcome to categorize themselves in any manner they see fit, including as conservatives.
...and her dress last night was the ugliest dress I’ve ever seen...and no, I’m not being catty. It was hideous. I’m sure she’ll make it on the years best dressed...
That's probably true, though today's "Establishment" isn't very conservative.
Yes..it is quite shocking. At the same time, this is what always happens when there is a revolution. It happened in Rome as well, when Augustus finally dealt the finally blow to Republican Rome. He transformed republican speech into the speech of dictatorship. The Res Publica, was no longer truly a Res Publica. It was Res Augustae, yet the speech remained the same. It is very important to look at the shift in language..that is when you know change is here.
Understand what “progressive” means. It means that they are continually and unrelentlessly progressing toward grater and greater socialist totalitarianism. Name any liberal from the past and he is a conservative compared to modern day liberals/progressives. Which means they will never be satisfied and can never be appeased. They have already gone beyond Obama. Not even he is left enough for them.
The devil’s greatest trick is to convince you he doesn’t really exist. It’s the same with liberals.
Typical Commie Tactics.
May I refer you, for future reference to your friend, to Ronald Reagan’s 1975 CPAC address. The core of conservatism is so well and clearly outlined and defined in that address that it may help you in ‘discussing’ the definition of conservatism with your ‘friend’.
However, sort of telling is the fact that Blacks voted for the ban on gay marriage in CA and FL while at the same time voting for Obama who ran as a liberal Democrat.
Curious at best... on a wait and see.
Black Liberation Theorcracy practiced at Obama's Trinity Church may hold the answer to this curiosity.
Did you ask that person why they were smoking crack while at work? Then did you point out that black is white, red is green, and less is more? I understand you are in a workplace situation, but there is a limit to the crap you ought to have to take sitting down. Your co-worker is either a liar, or seriously out of touch with reality. Either way, I’d steer clear.
i am not surprised. socialists consider themselves the true “conservatives”. they claim to be the party that places people back in control of their own lives. i kid you not. its all backwards!
here is there website: http://socialistparty-usa.org/
Yes, this has been employed even since the Roman empire. Transforming the language, the meaning of words, is critical usurpation of the existing state and its language.
I do know he has a drug history. I steer clear of all my coworkers :P
That is hegelian progressivism. Its social darwinism. At the end you finally evolve into something even beyond a community without private property. You finally arrive when you have lost the posession of your very body. I think that means death. The progressives think it means they become gods.
Wow. Obama’s party!
lol, they even think regular dems are neocons! i think on wikipedia that is where the word originated from the socialist party in reference to the dem party. how we came to be called that is unclear. but see, obama is a “true conservative” belonging to the socialist party, the party of the working man! /s btw, is this the actual party he is a member of? oh boy!
