The Obama Blockade

Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog

In the spring of ’48, the collision of wills between the free world and the red slave empire of the east came to a head in Berlin.

The Communist strategy had been to push forward, to violate the spirit of the agreements and then the letter of the agreements while always claiming to be the aggrieved party.

The Allies had treated the Soviet Union as if it were a credible partner that wanted to work together with them on rebuilding Europe. The Soviet Union did indeed want to rebuild Europe. It just wanted to do it under a red flag.

Communist takeovers in Eastern Europe baffled a West that could not believe the Reds would show such poor sportsmanship even though generations of terror and oppression should have already made it painfully clear that the Communists were ruthless and unconcerned with any of the niceties of democratic governance or international law.

Stalin had advised Mao to be patient, but patience was a quality that he himself lacked. Had the USSR waited and feigned cooperation in the rebuilding efforts, a weary United States would have withdrawn and the Communists could have taken over.

Instead Stalin decided to humiliate the United States, to demonstrate its impotence in international affairs and take it off the board with the Berlin Blockade. The Marshall Plan would fail, the Allies would be pushed out of Germany and then the emboldened Communists would push further west.

The Berlin Blockade was a siege in all but name. Beyond the sheer fact of food and coal being cut off to a city of millions were a thousand minor humiliations by Soviet officials designed to break the will of their enemies to resist. That was their mistake. And it’s a mistake that the left often makes.

The barricades around the Lincoln Memorial and the WW2 Memorial, the traffic cones blocking the view of Mt. Rushmore and the sawhorses around Old Faithful are no Berlin Blockade, but they come out of the same meanness of spirit and the same motives.

The petty harassment extended to a 24-hour blockade of an inn that had tried to stay open and rangers arriving to block Old Faithful every time it erupted. There are few moments that sum up the meanness of spirit of the Obama Blockade as well as a park ranger angrily telling senior citizens to get back on the bus and stop taking photos because they are engaging in forbidden “recreating”.

The Obama Blockade has no valid justification. Like the Berlin Blockade, it is about power and control.

No one actually has to go to the Lincoln Memorial or the WW2 Memorial or any of the other national monuments that were closed off. They are places that Americans assumed they could always go because they were part of their national heritage. It never occurred to them that they would be shut down.

The Pisgah Inn, the Cliff House, the Claude Moore Colonial Farm or any of the other private non-profits or restaurants on Federal land run themselves. It takes more resources to shut them down, to blockade them, than it would to let them keep on operating.

But it’s not about what’s easier. The Communists picked a fight over Germany’s future currency. The current fight is over ObamaCare. But ObamaCare, like the Communist Ostmark, is about more than its substance—it’s also about control.

The siege of America, unlike the siege of Berlin, is virtual; but it also depends on seizing control over the distribution of vital necessities. In Berlin, that meant food and coal. In America, that’s health care.

The question is will you agree to ObamaCare, just as in Berlin the question was whether you would get a Soviet ration card, fill your wallet with Ostmarks and submit to a Soviet takeover with their Communist puppets. The Communists assumed that cutting off food would force the residents of Berlin to use Soviet ration cards and currency.

They were wrong.

The residents were able to see that short term food from the USSR would mean decades of little food under Communist rule. Similarly any temporary benefits from ObamaCare will mean national shortages of health care in the future.

The National Park Service’s abusive antics, which include kicking senior citizens out of their cabins and detaining others at a hotel under armed guard and with warnings not to step outside, are about power. For these same reasons, Soviet officials subjected trains and water freight to pointless inspections, made petty demands and resorted to buzzing the Allied aircraft carrying out the Berlin Airlift. The tactics may have been petty, but they were making a big statement; this is our territory. We are in control here.

The petty harassments of officialdom all make the same statement. The power to make people jump through hoops, to do unnecessary and useless things, to accept indignities and tolerate harassment are a demonstration that the power lies on the other side of the desk. It’s not a tactic unique to the left, but the left really thrives on it.

The Obama Blockade can shut down websites that go on running anyway, it can refuse to pay death gratuities, take down the Amber Alert and harass tourists, but it can’t do what it would really like to punish the Americans who, like the Berliners, insist on voting to the right of the left, by taking away anything more vital.

And that is what this battle is really about.

The petty harassment of the Obama Blockade is a sign of impotence. It must satisfy its spite  harassing individuals, throwing out senior citizens from their homes and denying the families of soldiers killed in its botched war money to help pay for their funeral expenses, because it can’t inflict a greater misery and torment on the country at large. And it can’t do that until it completely controls health care.

The Berlin Blockade signaled that even with the numbers on their side, the Soviet Union did not dare roll the dice and fight the Allies over the spoils of war. The Obama Blockade is not a sign of strength, pettiness never is, it’s a sign of weakness.

Like the Soviets, Obama is hoping to rattle Republicans into backing down and giving in. He’s hoping that the accumulation of inconveniences, troubles and deprivations will turn Americans against the Yankee Running Dog Capitalists of the Republican Party, the way that the Communists hoped that being cold and hungry would turn Berliners against the United States.

Stalin lost his gamble and Obama is being forced to reconsider his. Instead of the easy victory he hoped for, his blockade created a backlash.

The photos of WW2 veterans storming the WW2 memorial have echoes of the Berlin Airlift; a seemingly small action whose greater resonances attain heroic proportions by pushing back against  tyranny. Family restaurants that defy the blockaders and fight to stay open send a message that there still is room for private lives and private concerns even on government land.

The Soviet Union hoped that Berliners would turn to the Communists. Instead they turned against them. Obama’s own approval ratings have fallen sharply. The speeches and putdowns roaring at record pace out of the White House have not changed the basic fact that Obama’s position, like that of the USSR, is that he will not negotiate over an economic power that he considers to be absolutely his in every way.

The tactics of the Communists shook Americans of their complacency. Even those who had thought that Stalin was a reasonable man willing to be our partner understood that there could be no middle ground.

The Soviet Union was not looking for a compromise. It wanted everything and if it didn’t get it, it would make life as miserable as it could for everyone. That has been Obama’s message. Either Congress completely capitulates and recognizes his power to do whatever he likes or memorials will be shut down, senior citizens will be thrown out of their homes and the families of the soldiers killed in the line of duty will have to struggle to cover funeral expenses.

The Berlin Blockade woke up Americans to what the Soviet Union really was. The Obama Blockade is waking up Americans affected by it to what Obama really is.

Behind the big ideas and the big speeches is a meanness and smallness of spirit that desires power above all else, that lacks any sense of decency and honor, and that when denied, lashes out viciously against anyone in the grip of its power. r.

The Berlin Blockade showed millions of people why they never wanted to find themselves under Communist control. It ended what might have become a recurrence of isolationism and firmed the conviction of Americans that the only way to deal with the Soviet Union was to push it back.

The Obama Blockade, the meanness and pettiness in its needless power plays, is a warning of what life will be like if the left gains even more control over America.

The intention of the Obama administration to dominate the entire nation with ruthless horror is made visible for all to see. It is no longer a matter of supposition.
Liberalism has consciously demonstrated its opposition to any expectations of privacy. We are to be dominated and controlled. It is the end of freedom in America.
Our representatives in the House are finally making a heroic stand. Pray for them. Support them. Be prepared to fight for them. This is the final battle. Beyond this there is no hope to peacefully restore our country.

It’s a good thing the government doesn’t directly control the internet, although it has emergency powers to do so. I’m sure that this has been thought of... not just to inconvenience the public, but also to limit political information dissemination so that the Dem-dominated MSM wouldn’t be bypassed.

Good article......but come on people...
It does not go far enough....we keep on acting like Obama is an American President....he is not. This man is not an American. They had to get a foreigner to do these kind of things....a person with no allegiance to the USA. We can keep on pretending that Natural Born Citizen does not matter, but he proves everyday that it most does matter. Our founding knew that and so should we. No left wing President would ever have dreamed about blockading our Memorials.....are you kidding me???? Wake up....Obama is not who he says he is....he is a foreign plant sent here for our destruction. The sooner you we admit this to ourselves, the sooner we can fight this silent coup!

Just as the Berlin Blockade demonstrated the meanness and smallness of spirit of communism, the Barry Blockade demonstrates the meanness and smallness of spirit of obama.

Just as the Berlin Airlift demonstrated the largess and courage of the American People, the breaking down of the Barry-cades demonstrates the same qualities in our Seniors and Our Veterans.

Let us pray that the younger generations of Americans have not been so indoctrinated and demoralized by the system, that these heroic actions of their grandparents cause them to WAKE UP!

Knish has to give us time to assimilate what we can get to at one time. We have lives to live and tons of reading, working,and making do with our particular circumstances. Knish also likely knows that his readers are aware of the tenuous relationship Opama and his handlers have to the claim that he is just an ordinary American citizen by birth, having been nurtured and raised in the heartland of Kansas.

Many of us are reminded daily that Obama was not raised in America, contrary to the narrative voters were sold when he was a candidate. He does not even know what freedom means in the context of American culture. He thinks tribal and Marxist and conducts his part of the deal accordingly.
Oh, I do not believe that this coupe is silent. Treason and coupe are quite obvious to all who are not interested in partaking in the overthrow of this Republic.

I have heard that it is bad form on this forum to enter vanity posts, so I don't know how to spread the word other than posting this here and hope that it spreads . . . .

I just sent the following to all of my federal representatives. I would encourage everyone else to do the same. You may freely copy what I have already composed . . . .

_____________________

If the federal government can be this petty, how much more damage can it do to private citizens when it gets full control of our health care?

http://sultanknish.blogspot.com/2013/10/the-obama-blockade.html

Please, please, be resolute. We are in another Cold War. The communists have infiltrated Congress and the White House via the Democrat party. I'm just a simple law abiding, patriotic, and voting citizen who is dependent on YOU to defend the Constitution and the original founding principles of this Republic. If you are unwilling to bear the slings and arrows of bad press, then it may be time to vote for someone who is.

We cannot keep spending more than we take in. We cannot allow the federal government to control our health care. We cannot allow millions of law breakers citizenship. You must begin to reign in the abusive control of us by the federal government via the IRS, NPS, DHS, NSA, EPA, BLM, and a myriad of acronyms that all add up to more control over us plain citizens. Stop the madness NOW!

Excellent article, Lou. Thanks for the posting and the ping. The Berlin Blockade is an excellent analogy.

Now, if we can just convince Boehner not to be a bonehead. We’re winning this thing because of the Barrycades...Obastard cannot push blame for them onto the TEA Party, and it’s becoming more obvious every day. People (even LIV!) instinctively know he ordered the Barrycades, Congress didn’t. As I said to Mrs. Liberty last night, “This is worse than a disaster for Obastard. It’s a blunder.”

Meanwhile, we have the Treasury Secretary telling Congress this morning that he cannot prioritize expenditures to ensure service of the debt. The Stock Market reacts with the Dow up over 200 pts, even when Lew is threatening to default on the debt! IOW, they think he’s *lying.* The regime has no credibility left!

Some blunder....

I hope there are folks out there that are defying these ridiculous blockades. If they are arrested, on what charges? Trespassing? I’d like to see how that plays out in court. An American Citizen trespassing on public property? Would we have to litigate who “owns” public property? Would we have to recognize our government as an owner and ruler with rights that supersede that of the people? Will some lawyer finally enter the US Constitution as evidence in a civil rights case?

I hope Obammy continues this aggression and oppression and punishment on the American people. Maybe THIS TIME the sheeple will wake up. I won’t hold my breath, however.

Exactly. Tying in with this, from: The Threat We Face.

"The first of these features is their alienation from country: If you ask progressives about their patriotic feeling, they will tell you that they don’t think of themselves first as Americans but as “citizens of the world.” That even has a Harvard imprimatur. They are, in fact, so profoundly alienated from their country as to be in some sense foreigners to it. They are hostile to its history and to its core values, which they see as reflections of a society that has been guilty of racism and oppression on an epic scale. And they are fundamentally opposed to its constitutional arrangements which the framers specifically designed to thwart what they deemed “wicked projects” to redistribute income and share individual wealth."

" This is perhaps the hardest feature of their progressive adversaries for conservatives to comprehend. It is difficult to imagine that people as privileged by America’s generosity as Barack Obama and his entourage of despoilers should be so alienated from their country as to feel themselves in it but not of it."

The reason that the Progressive Left rejects the traditions and values that make America great is their rejection of Christianity. To replace the spiritual fulfillment of Christianity, they have devised a new religion of Utopianism. I call it living in the fantasy world on the Unicorn Farm. There are the farm’s domesticated animals—the useful tools—their Communist masters in government and their spokesmen in the media.

Utopianism got its big push in the 60s when huge numbers of Baby Boomers flocked to the universities to avoid the draft. In place at that time were professors, entrenched by the tenure system, who were Communist sympathizers. Many were actual Communist agents sent into the universities to influence the teaching staffs and impressionable youth towards a communist overthrow from within. Because of the draft, many of these youth became what was known as professional students. They became fully indoctrinated and when the economy during the Carter years killed the job market, these professional students sought jobs as professors. Professors, like Bill Ayers, are at work now, making sure the Unicorn Farm has the collective working for their Utopian goals and transforming America to a Communist Utopia.

Along with his mother (University of Washington coffee house beatnik), and Communist family friend, Frank Marshall Davis, it was Communist professors that mentored Zer0 during his receptive University years. Zer0 is the culmination of the Utopianists’ dream to use America’s huge reservoir of wealth to transform America. When they are all through, America will be a back water nation of slaves to a system of high tech computer systems designed to control human beings from cradle to grave. The HAL 9000 of Arthur C. Clarke’s Space Odyssey will be a piker compared to what is in store for the citizens of America.

Interesting assessment and I totally agree. Glad to hear people saying socialist and communist more and more. We have to Alinsky back at them if we are going to win this battle.

I tell people Obama is a full blown Communist with a capital C. People say, "Oh, no he isn't, he isn't that bad." After I give my spiel, they're open to the idea.

Haven't thought of HAL 9000 in some time. .
