Summer of our discontent: Why is America so angry?
McClatchy Newspapers ^ | 29 Aug 2009 | Steven Thomma

Posted on 08/29/2009 6:43:41 AM PDT by BGHater

At the dawn of the Barack Obama era, the promise of hope has faded. America's public square is an angry and bitter place.

Finger pointing and yelling at town hall meetings this summer are signs of a country that's been building toward a boiling point for several years, stressed by a fast changing economy, a flood of immigration and threats at home by terrorists.

It's a land at turns frustrated and irate at a government that led them into an unpopular war, proved itself inept at helping its citizens in a disastrous hurricane, presided over an historic economic collapse, then went on a spending spree that could commit their country to decades of crushing debt.

Untold numbers of Americans seethe with anger at Obama and his fellow Democrats, resentment coupled with fear even more intense than the rage other Americans expressed just a year ago at George W. Bush and the Republicans. One telling sign: The comparisons of the president to Hitler remain the same — only the face has changed from Bush to Obama.

"It's ugly," said independent pollster John Zogby. "Ugly and sad because there were many of us who felt the ugliness could be transcended this time."

Americans throughout their history have been prone to periods of anger and suspicion against one another, particularly in times of change and stress. The anti-Catholic Know-Nothings of the 1850s, the rise of the Klan in the 1870s, the Palmer Raids against leftist radicals and immigrants in the 1920s, McCarthyism in the 1950s.

This anger is more focused on the federal government, a resurgence of the hostility toward the government that started with Vietnam in the 1960s and Watergate in the 1970s, faded in the 1980s, resurfaced in the early 1990s and then faded away again.

'Some of the rising anger predates Obama — built on the natural American DNA of skepticism toward the government, exacerbated by moves to give the government more power in both the Bush and Obama administrations, and magnified and spread by a new era of communications.'

“It’s ugly,” said independent pollster John Zogby. “Ugly and sad because there were many of us who felt the ugliness could be transcended this time.”

Maybe if the Kenyan wasn’t conducting a communist coup?

This from the cheerleaders of the 0, who in 1 year has created a large deficit then ALL of the "Bush deficits" combined.

The reporter mentions Watergate but nothing on Carter and Iran. Mentions how things faded in the ‘80’s, but doesn’t mention Reagan for making things right.

So zogby thought the ugliness would be transcended with the election of this communist, lying usurper who happens to be black?

Many naive people thought so, too. For an excellent column on why that was an unrealistic idea, here is Thomas Sowell’s take on it:

Fear generates anger and the Obama administration with its radical politboro of "Czars" is a scary lot.

I suspect that most people have not yet worked up the gestalt but the gut is telling them that the administration is getting too extreme for their liking.

The reporter has never delt with a bureaucracy like, for example, the Defense Fuel Supply Administration in Alexandria, VA. Populated with people who can't speak clear English, don't care, don't return calls, etc. And they're no different from every other agency in the federal camp.
This is what we have to look forward to with Obamacare. No wonder we're ticked off.

What's ugly & sad is that millions of fools voted this POS into office b/c they were TOLD he would usher in a glorious New Day. The fact that is was an out & out lie isn't sad OR ugly... simply historical fact.

And let us not forget what Obama adviser Dr.Ezikeiel Emanual(Rahm Emanual's brother) has said in the past, this is just plain evil. To think that an American Jewish doctor who knows of Hitler and the 6,000,000 Jews that were exterminated by the Nazis before American soldiers destroyed the murder machine should even support eugenics is such a hypocrisy. A jewish health care advisor of Obama care for Americans supporting the deaths of older people whom he considers expendable is just plain unacceptable.

[The reason people were wary of Dr. Emanuel in the first place is because of his writings from the 1990s in which (to quote one of them), he advocated giving younger people first dibs on medical care: “Unlike allocation by sex or race, allocation by age is not invidious discrimination; every person lives through different life stages rather than being a single age. Even if 25-year-olds receive priority over 65-year-olds, everyone who is 65 years now was previously 25 years.” In late 1996, he wrote that “services provided to individuals who are irreversibly prevented from being or becoming participating citizens are not basic and should not be guaranteed.]”

Just as it was "transcended" when George Bush asked for unity in the face of the 9/11 horror?

Why is it that non-partisanship is only supposed to be shown by conservatives, but never by libs?

Obama lost control of the message. So many government programs have been sold as "Ooooo, free stuff for everyone (well, with some taxes)" which people will gobble up. It looked like this was going to get by on the same plan, but two things happened. First the message became "Ooooo, free stuff for everyone (with lots of taxes)" and then people realized that this was handing direct decisions of life and death to the government which no one liked.

Who is this employee of the newspaper?

The anger against the Establishment in the 1960s and 70s was the doings of the 1960s Marxist-Alinsky hippie street rabble.

Now they and their ideological issue (children) are Rat Party (formerly the traditional, patriotic Democratic Party) leaders and stalwarts. Arguably they are "the Establishment."

(That ain't name calling. The Sixties Marxist-Alinsky hippie street rabble really have taken over the traditional, patriotic Democratic Party. Under the hail of "neo-con" taunts many Democrats fled the Party.)

Today it's not anger it's RESCUE.

I guess the newspaper employee is one of the Marxist-Alinsky hippie street rabble or one of their ideological children.

Uh, John, I hate to burst your naivety bubble but "ugliness" happens when people realize that the POTUS is a Marxist wannabe dictator and have the undeniable facts to prove it.

As Congress was debating the proposed regulation of emissions that cause global warming, Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., warned that people needed to stand up to the legislation.

or maybe if McClatchy, the rest of the SRM and the government were being honest and scientific about CO2, we'd have a bit more trust and respect for them.

“Bipartisan” = I get my way and you tell me how wonderful my way is

“Nonpartisan” = There ain’t no such animal

“Finger pointing and yelling at town hall meetings this summer are signs of a country that’s been building toward a boiling point for several years, stressed by a fast changing economy, a flood of immigration and threats at home by terrorists.”

Part of the problem is that we don’t really have a national identity anymore. ‘Nationalism’ has become defined in the most negative sense, and patriotism equated with being an uninformed or uneducated ‘flag waver’ who doesn’t understand the ‘worldly’ nuances as defined by journalists, politicians, and academics.

We’ve had lots of shifts in demographics, and we’ve taken the ‘melt’ out of melting pot. So people feel like they are losing their country because it isn’t familiar to them anymore. The democrat supported tactic of pushing the immigration of those who are most likely to vote democrat has contributed significantly to the shifting demographics, and ultimately is highly destructive to the nation.

I rarely read articles of this ilk anymore. What is apparent from my vantage point is the creeping power of the Federal, State, and Local governments since WWII. Uncle has his snoot into everything. Uncle has a say in the design of gas cans so now it is virtually impossible to use them in many applications. Uncle controls the pestacides that one may use on your garden and in you orchard for food exclusively for your own use. The have reached a level where they are no longer effective. Consequently, you loose your vegetables and fruit to Japanese beetles and to bees and other insects. Your labor is lost. Three to five million children die per year from malaria (a particularly horrible way to die) because we won’t spray with DDT (so some raptors won’t lay thin eggs!!).

We have seen the center of our major cities decay away, our heavy industries (with their jobs) move offshore (to countries that have nuclear armed MIRVed ICBMs aimed at the continental US), and our public morals debased to the point where TV and most music is not suitable for a reasonable person. We have seen instances of corruption on all levels go with no effective reprimands (legal or morally). We kill (some say murder) millions of unborn (mostly black) babies annually supported by public funds yet evening praying outside one of the murder factories nets a jail sentence. We have seen the Federal government take over and control major American corporations. How long will we let this continue in the land of the free and the home of the brave?

Damn, you are right. Sowell nails it again. Here is the money quote:

Those who were shocked at President Obama's cheap shot at the Cambridge police for being "stupid" in arresting Henry Louis Gates must have been among those who let their wishes prevail over the obvious implications of Obama's 20 years of association with the Reverend Jeremiah Wright. Anyone who can believe that Obama did not understand what the racist rants of Jeremiah Wright meant can believe anything.

Interesting to note. Americans are said to be "angry" in the 1960's 70s and 90s when Govt was being actively and enthusiastically enlarged and not angry during the 1980s when efforts were made to roll back and reduce the reach of Govt.

The writer at this state media outlet might want to consider the implications of that.

“There seems to be a reservoir of anger in the country of a particularly intense and shrill variety that it is not simply what's appeared at the town meetings,” said Michael Barkun, a political scientist at Syracuse University and an expert on extremist groups”

“According to Michael Barkun, many white supremacist groups of the radical right are deeply committed to the distinctive but little-recognized religious position known as Christian Identity. snip

In a new chapter written for the revised edition, he traces the role of Christian Identity figures in the dramatic events of the first half of the 1990s, from the Oklahoma City bombing and the rise of the militia movement to the Freemen standoff in Montana. Barkun also explores the government's evolving response to these challenges to the legitimacy of the state.
snip

In other words, the Liberal professor equates religiousness, conservatism and Anti Obamanationalism with being RACIST.

Ad Hominem attacks from leftist asshats only reinforce and validate my position that they are in the indefensible position of being wrong 100% of the time on every issue.
When they can't defend their position on facts and truth, they make up facts and attack and seek to destroy “the other side”.

Liberals will do anything to gain and maintain power, including consorting with the enemy. This is a well documented and recurring theme. In a fair and just society those politicians would be hanged for treason.

Communism and Fascism are different faces of the same coin. The fundamental difference is Commies want to OWN everything, Fascists merely want to control everything while leaving it held in private hands.

Thus The 0 regime has demonstrated it is more fascist then communist in outlook.

What is awakening in America is the realization that the very fabric of our Republic is being torn asunder by Obama and the uberliberal Congress. Obamacare with its insidious control of people's very lives was the tipping point and the more average Americans looked at it the more scared they have become. Now average Americans who weren't political active have become aroused and better still have become aware of how the big hand of government is taking away their liberty, ruining our economy and saddling their children and grandchildren with a massive new debt. Let's hope that this anger continues through the 2012 elections or our Republic is doomed.

We're rebelling against the CommuFascist minority rule that is taking our freedoms away. Led by an African-anti-American President, the boisterous minority, aided by a one sided Marxist MEM, are muffling dissent and trying to "transform" our beloved country to a third world hell hole in no time.

This anger will not subside unless 0b0zo and his Czars turn 180 degrees. This wishful thinking on my part is only that. Historically, Marxists, Fascists and dictators never retreat an inch. They have to be resoundly defeatd, removed and OUTLAWED.

A free country can't afford to extend its freedoms to its enemies. Case in point, Mirandaizing terrorists is giving them a license to carry on without fear of retribution.

Last but not least, the attack on the CIA ordered by an illegitimate president galls us. So far, the CIA is cowering and not leaking info to expose personnel in The Administration.

I can go on and on, but a comparison to the "dissent" and CIA/FBI leaks against the Bush administration are too numerous and well known to repeat.

Good point. But I don’t think so. The Kenyan just hasn’t gotten around to seizing every business sector yet.

The outline is clear. Following the Hugo Chavez model, the Kenyan will swallow them one at a a time. DeathCare is a big gulp.
