Skip to comments.The Sleeping Giant Awakens (Obama, radicals and racial violence)
Posted on 08/10/2011 12:57:26 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
One of my closest friends, "Gail," lives in a pristine suburb in northern New Jersey. It's one of those leafy bedroom communities where residents drive their Lexus SUVs to the railroad station each morning to catch the train to Manhattan.
After 9/11, Gail told me that eerily, several vehicles were left abandoned in the parking lot for weeks. Their drivers never returned home that day to retrieve them.
But, in general, not much goes on in her sleepy, idyllic town. The residents rave about shopping sprees to Loehmanns and sprints to Whole Foods for organic strawberries. There is no crime to speak of; the local paper blares news about a recent traffic accident or the opening of a Trader Joe's. So when Gail told me what happened to her son, I was absolutely dumbfounded.
As for Gail, like my former self, she's a staunch supporter of the Democratic Party.....

You know vet, the feeling I am getting these days? It’s actually very similar to the weird loopiness I was feeling the week after the big earthquake last March. Everything looks the same, but somehow everything feels less substantial. The ground seems to be moving all the time, even when it isn’t.
But this time, it’s all coming from the news. The markets are falling, there are riots everywhere, flash mobs have evolved from being a cute and harmless past-time into something far more brutal and inexplicable...
And even more sadly is the gut deep realization that whatever is happening — this is just the beginning.
I can only hope more people wake the hell up to reality before it’s their child decked by feral human garbage, regardless of that garbage’s skin color.
Unfortunately, some people NEED to learn the hard way. As a parent I feel sorry for “Gail” and what happened to her son. But my rational side can’t help also thinking “Lady, what the 9 Hells did you expect from a Marxist radical you were CLEARLY warned about and voted for anyway? YOU helped encourage this!”
America deserves everything we get for electing this guy.
What else ya wanna know???
It’s the democrat party, there is nothing democratic about these people.
The left depends on confused sympathy for it's radical causes. The only trouble with it right now is that the world is not awash with cash to support them.
The Leftist papers and media will, but it will only lead to less readership and less advertisers.
I wonder if more people will be open to learning more about Obamas past (and present) associates this time around.
The Wisconsin State Fair events are a leading indicator of how it's going to happen. Apparently random acts, coordinated wilding, growing frequency.
That sums it up pretty nicely.
Pretty sad to think people (in the article) think this way though. I guess that should be a given based on the level of insulation they blanket themselves with.
Waking up is hard to do.
And now I’ve got Paul Anka on my mind, sheesh.
Dumb@sses who could be our downfall.
People, like Gail, do not understand the connection between socialism and infantilization.
When you turn people into perpetual two-year olds, they will act like two-year olds when you have expectations of them.
There is something in this article with a disconsonant ring to me. I heartily blame Obama for the economic malaise that inevitably accompanies a clearly anti-business administration. However, this author implies that he is somehow behind the outbreak of the violence. He has not uttered a word of condemnation, (unlike Mayor Nutter in Philly) but I cannot view this a some sort of assault orchestrated by Obama.
I lived in the People’s Republic of Berkeley for three years in the Seventies—I know exactly what she is talking about.
My stay in Berkeley turned me from a mildly liberal person into a conservative who can spot the liberal/progressive BS immediately. Unfortunately, that BS is rampant in academia and government.
Wow, he really impresses me. What a brainiac!
Leftists have no idea whats coming down the pipe, this example is on only a small prelude of things to come. By 2050 (if not sooner) whites are going to a minority in there own country, these type of events are going to increase in magnitude and frequency
This is horrible. Justin didn’t deserve to be treated this way, and his friends didn’t need to see such brutality.
“But, Gail, it’s not just happening in your small town, but it’s happening all over the country, and it’s getting worse every day. There have been random mob violence against white people in Iowa, Chicago, Atlanta, in Wisconsin, where dozens of white people were beaten up, even pulled out of their own cars.”
“But why?” Gail asked me plaintively. “Why is this happening now?”
“It’s Obama,” I explained. “It’s what I told you a few years ago. This is what happens when you put someone in power like Obama. Something spreads, like a virus. It’s subtle; it’s almost invisible. But it poisons one person, and then another and another, until soon the whole country is corrupted.
“It’s a sickness called hatred, Gail. Most black people are good, law-abiding, moral people. Obama comes from a far-left fringe group of militants who hate America and want to drag us down. Those same people have degraded and exploited poor black kids for years. These radicals use them as their foot soldiers. Obama would never get his own hands dirty.
This is an important story. Wouldn’t it be better to post it during the day when more people will see it?
Thank you for citing this story. Gripping and well-written. And, unfortunately, not an excellent work of fiction, but a glimpse of hell on the horizon.
That’s probably true. Would you bump it tomorrow afternoon?
No. The smart people are here at night.
Couldn’t sleep - and was surprised about how much good stuff is posted in the middle of the night. I’ll try to bump it tomorrow ...
The matter is not that Obama is the ‘orchestrator’.
The matter is that Obama is evil. As president, and one with an heroic superstar image to his fans, he gives permission to every lost soul to embrace evil.
If the president were not evil, those lost souls might be led in a better direction by one of any number of thousands of other leaders and role models in our society.
To understand what I’m saying, you need to believe in evil. If you don’t think it exists, and everything is just rational decisions or psychological motivations, then of course it would be silly to think one person could have this influence. How many examples in history that seemed great, noble leaders at the beginning?
And the result is the same whether done by design or out of ignorance.
Ever spent any real time in DC? The proportion of "his people" who hold non-elective government jobs is several times their representation in the metropolitan population, always has been, but the imbalace increased significantly beginning in January, 2009.
Plus there is his (personal) "National Army" that he proposed soon after taking office. Guess the traditional National Guard from all states just wouldn't do.
He has st racial relations back far beyond 1964, with the childish zeal of a wimp who discovered suddenly that he can act like a bully with impunity.
Sow the wind, reap the whirlwind.
Just like the lead up to other revolutions the first step is to get people used to acting as part of a mob. It's already been done within the Black community where now days even otherwise level headed people will excuse violence and theft because, “there was a riot going on so stealing something that was going to burn anyway doesn't make any difference”. Now, by making it like some sort of fun rave, the white teenagers and youth are being trained the same exact way.
Once there are sufficient numbers of folks, well, that's when they start showing up with some sort of clothing or armbands that identify them as “good guys” to one another. By the time the election of 2012 rolls around seeing a few Black Panther types at the polls will be nothing. Mobs will be showing up and beating people and/or tearing up the voting places in those areas that are known to be conservative. The media will be blathering the best sort of “Goebbels School of Journalism” rationalizations for it and “debating” whether it's worse than “the poor” being “denied their right to vote” in other areas.
Never let a crisis go to waste will take on a whole new dimension.
“....but I cannot view this a some sort of assault orchestrated by Obama.”
This is classic “Destabilization.” Riots; coddling terrorists with show trials; freeing criminals; legalizing voter intimidation (Black Panthers outside Philly polling station); ordering ATF to arm drug cartels with semi-auto riles; SEIU mobs attacking Tea Parties and town halls; busloads of ACORN/SEIU protesting outside homes of CEO’s.
This is Phase 2 of the Communist/Marxist program.
Best explained by this KGB defector (VIDEO HERE):
I do believe that we lost the ability to "bump" threads a few FR "improvements" ago.
And reposting runs the risk of awakening the self-important and self-appointed "reposting police."
So good luck with that.
Hint: It started with the sudden drop of charges against the Black Panthers in the voter intimidation case, where it was a slam dunk conviction and has gone on through the deliberate blindness of the DOJ towards crimes committed by ‘people of color’ against whites and Asians.
They got the message that they don’t need to worry about getting busted.
Robin is a she. :P
Flattering as that might seem, the "smart people" already know all the forms of the "Dark Side" and all the smoke and mirrors that everyone has to navigate.
And then there's the trolls.
They party at night, get their talking points early Eastern Time, and infest the threads during daylight, when all the newbies and the the uninformed and the unengaged surf from work.
"Disconsonant" is evidently a neologism. The Merriam Webster site wants to know where you heard it. It occurs to me that it's a transmogrification ( look it up ) of "cognitive dissonance".
Anyway, the disconsonant ring to me was the entire narrative of events, in particular the writer's concern that the kids would be scarred with racist leanings, and the mild tone of his remonstrances with "Gail". I would be out of my mind.
Evil yawns and stretches every now and then, but is usually righted by better forces.
While many conservatives merge liberalism and leftism, there are huge differences between the two camps. Liberals, like Gail, want a kinder and gentler America.
I'm not sure that the differences are all that huge. The disparity between liberals and lefists may just be one of degree. The desire of liberals to achieve that "kindler and gentler America" is tripe. Other than being a popular, non-specific cliche, it is an illusion. Human behavior - on a grand scale - is not kind and gentle and it never will be. It is the naivete and passivity of liberals like the writer's friend, that feeds and encourages leftists in their quest to dismantle Western Civilization.
THE OBAMA PATHOLOGY
The idea of the Authoritarian Personality originated in The Frankfurt School stop old as a means of undermining the position of the father within the family circle and thereby undermine the family itself and ultimately the nation as a bulwark against communism. It was heavily larded with pseudo-Freudian analysis and was expanded to subvert all institutionalized authority. Every season we see an article, usually by some college professor with too much time in his hands or sometimes by psychiatrists acting either singly or in gaggles, opining that the current president, if he be Republican, is somehow psychologically deficient. No Republican president or Republican candidate in my lifetime has escaped this ritual psychoanalysis.
A recent excrescence of this genre is the book by Naomi Wolf in which she ludicrously argues that America, led by George Bush, is on the verge of descending into fascism. I have posted my objection to this sort of pseudoscience and I have tried to debunk this cheap propaganda so I am reluctant to engage hypocritically in the same game now. Well, I am going to do it anyway. I aim to indict about half of our whole society. The half, and likely more than half, that will vote for Barak Obama. My psychological conclusions do not pretend to the trappings of the "science" of the psyche and adorned with the word games of Freudian analysis, rather they are rooted in common sense.
The conclusion of anyone with common sense who has seen the films of innocent children singing their Obama songs or who has watched the quasi-military chanting and saluting of the Obama Youth in military garb must conclude that there is something very, very wrong with these people. I remember when I first saw the YouTube Children singing their Obama song I became conscious after a while that my mouth was gaping open, so appalled was I. My reaction to seeing the paramilitary gang marching into the karate hall was a mixture of embarrassment that these kids would make such fools of themselves and anger that adults would so brazenly manipulate children. Then I felt a creeping sense of unease that there was something potentially very sinister going on. Dear merciful God, this is Orwellian!
Beyond a very healthy repugnance to the spectacle of brainwashed children put on display, beyond the inescapable Maoist symbolism of it all, a commonsense person asks, what kind of man would permit this to go on in his name? What kind of parent would not seek to protect his child from such a man? What kind of pathology would lead parents who presumably love their children to consign those children to the demons of mind control? How could Americans fall for such a transparent cult of personality?
Unfortunately, we need not be uncertain about what kind of man would permit this grotesquerie to be advanced in his name. History provides us with plenty of examples: Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and Kim Jong-Il come to mind and now we add Barak Obama to the list. Why has he not spoken out and repudiated this? Would not a decent man do so if only for the children?
If Obama will not speak out now as a candidate when a little modesty, even false modesty, would advance his chances, what will he do when he gains office with no resistance anywhere on the horizon; no opposition in either the House or the Senate, no voice in traditional media to be raised against him, no institutional resistance on a national level of any kind organized to discourage him? Because he condones this obscenity one must ask, Is Obama really a narcissist as has been claimed? If so, how far will he go when he has the levers of power in his hands when there is no effective resistance to his ego?
How dangerous is Barak Obama?
Is he too dangerous to be put in a place where he could literally get us all killed? Or Is he the indispensable man in some sense? I do not think so. There is nothing in his career that suggests that he is the man for this season. In a time of war he has no military experience. In a time of looming financial disaster, he has no economic credentials. If he is potentially dangerous and if he is not indispensable, why would so many people want to put him in a position where he could do us harm, even get us all killed?
My commonsense explanation is that there must be a pathology, a mass psychosis, that brings people to the point where not only are they eager to make him the most powerful man in the world but they are invoking his name and calling upon him to be their savior. This they do rather than falling on their knees out of fear of The Real God. This is the Obama pathology.
To a middle-class conservative who instinctively rejects conspiracy theories and normally wants to think the best of people because that's what he learned in Sunday school, this deification of an empty suit is as bewildering as it is frightening. What in the world are these people thinking? Do they not weigh the risks of consigning their fate to an unqualified man, worse, a person tainted his whole life with stunningly dangerous confederates including felons and Communists and terrorists? What is the upside? What is it about this man whose career is utterly uninterrupted by any accomplishment which would motivate these people to risk their children and my children to whatever he might do to them? How do they know? How can they be sure? Don't they have any doubts?
My problem is that I am seeking after that which I cannot find. I want to find an explanation in logic for a phenomenon of emotion. It is easy for middle-class conservatives to overlook the power of emotion even though history provides plenty of examples even within our own culture in America. Can logic explain why so many drank Jim Jone's Kool aid? Why Charles Manson commanded such blood loyalty? How many cheered OJ Simpson's acquittal? Why did princes Diana's passing traumatize a nation? These are not questions which are answered with everyday commonsense. One almost has to go to the Bible to see the answer in Old Testament allegory which lets us know that evil is and there will always be worshipers of the golden calf.
I fear that in November we conservatives might find ourselves involuntarily embarked upon a journey that is foreign to our epistemology. We may be going into dark places and we might well be pushed into a netherworld where our common sense values are of no use because it is a place where down is up and black is white, a place where gravity does not pull but pushes, a place where we will need a pocket translator in order to converse in English with our government, our children's teachers, and our keepers even though they superficially use the same words we do. We sense we are about to be overwhelmed by forces guided by the ghost of Saul Alinsky.
I fear the downside of the Obama Pathology after his election may extend to dimensions we cannot begin to fasten to our everyday understanding or to our common sense. We have no way of knowing what will come because we don't know anything really about Barak Obama. We do not know if he is purely evil, we do not know if he is a committed communist, we do not know if he is a racist, we do not know if he wishes to see the submergence of the United States into a greater world order, we do not know if he is a megalomaniac, we do not even know, God help us, if he hates America. We do not know, in short, if we are backs - to- the- wall confronted with the Liberals' quadrennial nightmare: A real Authoritarian Personality.
We do know that Barak Obama has already encouraged a cult of personality whose implications are truly frightening and fundamentally un-American.
A good piece.
"Americas chickens... are coming home... to ROOST!"
SEAN HANNITY: But Reverend Jeremiah Wright is not backing down and has not for years and in his strong stance on the teaching of black liberation theology is nothing new. He had the same things to say last spring when he appeared on "Hannity & Colmes:"
WRIGHT: If you're not going to talk about theology in context, if you're not going to talk about liberation theology that came out of the '60s, systematized black liberation theology that started with Jim Cone in 1968 and the writings of Cone and the writings of Dwight Hopkins and the writings of womynist theologians and Asian theologians and Hispanic theologians, then you can't talk about the black value system.
HANNITY: But I'm a reverend
WRIGHT: Do you know liberation theology, sir?
Obama's Church: Gospel of Hate
Kathy Shaidle, FrontPageMag.com
Monday, April 07, 2008
In March of 2007, FOX News host Sean Hannity had engaged Obamas pastor in a heated interview about his Churchs teachings. For many viewers, the ensuing shouting match was their first exposure to "Black Liberation Theology"...
Like the pro-communist Liberation Theology that swept Central America in the 1980s and was repeatedly condemned by Pope John Paul II, Black Liberation Theology combines warmed-over 1960s vintage Marxism with carefully distorted biblical passages. However, in contrast to traditional Marxism, it emphasizes race rather than class. The Christian notion of "salvation" in the afterlife is superseded by "liberation" on earth, courtesy of the establishment of a socialist utopia.
Catholics for Marx [Liberation Theology]
By Fr. Robert Sirico
FrontPageMagazine.com | Thursday, June 03, 2004
In the days when the Superpowers were locked in a Cold War, Latin America seethed with revolution, and millions lived behind an iron curtain, a group of theologians concocted a novel idea within the history of Christianity. They proposed to combine the teachings of Jesus with the teachings of Marx as a way of justifying violent revolution to overthrow the economics of capitalism.
The Gospels were re-rendered not as doctrine impacting on the human soul but rather as windows into the historical dialectic of class struggle. These "liberation theologians" saw every biblical criticism of the rich as a mandate to expropriate the expropriating owners of capital, and every expression of compassion for the poor as a call for an uprising by the proletarian class of peasants and workers.
"Their founding document [the Weather Underground's] called for the establishment of a "white fighting force" to be allied with the "Black Liberation Movement" and other "anti-colonial" movements to achieve "the destruction of US imperialism and the achievement of a classless world: world communism."..."-Berger, Dan (2006). Outlaws of America: The Weather Underground and the Politics of Solidarity. AK Press, 95.
Outlaws of America: The Weather Underground and the Politics of Solidarity (Paperback) by Dan Berger
From the New York Times, August 24, 2003
"they [the Weather Underground] employed revolutionary jargon, advocated armed struggle and black liberation and began bombing buildings, taking responsibility for at least 20 attacks. Estimates of their number ranged at times from several dozen to several hundred."

My stay in Berkeley turned me from a mildly liberal person into a conservative who can spot the liberal/progressive BS immediately. Unfortunately, that BS is rampant in academia and government.
Actually, you probably don't understand because the situation just keeps deteriorating. I was there in the 80’s and 90’s and it was worse than the 70’s.
Just went back after being gone for close to 15 years and it's way, way worse than when I left. The crazys are driving out the sane and productive people who have enough and are voting with their feet.
The Bay Area has been sliding down the slippery slope for a long time and it's getting closer to hitting a hard rock bottom.
August, 2003: Ward Churchill Caught On Tape Advocating Terrorism [vs Fellow Americans]
Audio link at Michell Malkin's website (included below)
Question from audience:
You mentioned a little bit ago, "Why did it take a bunch of Arabs to do what you all should have done a long time ago," that's my question.
Churchill: I'm gonna repeat that, tell me if I got that right: Why shouldn't we do something and how do you you move so they don't see you coming.
As to the first part, not a reason in the world that I could see. I can't find a single reason that you shouldn't in a principled way there may be some practical considerations, such as do you know how (laughter from audience)
you know, often these things are processes. It's not just an impulse. And certainly it's not just an event.
And the simple answer, although it probably should be more complicated, but I'm not being flip and giving the simple answer, is:
You carry the weapon. That's how they don't see it coming. You're the one...
They talk about "color blind or blind to your color." You said it yourself.
You don't send the Black Liberation Army into Wall Street to conduct an action.
You don't send the American Indian Movement into downtown Seattle to conduct an action.
Who do you send? You. Your beard shaved, your hair cut close, and wearing a banker's suit.
There's probably a whole lot more to it, you know that. But there's where you start. .."

0bama 2012 campaign strategy: Create civil unrest, declare martial law, suspend the elections.
Its “day” for me...and I see it.
Many liberals thought they could keep blacks on the urban reservations, but they’ve been picked clean by looters. Now they raid where the money is, and these encounters become more frequent. They have conditioned their “youth” that any shortcoming can be laid at the feet of whites, while at the same time telling them they were entitled to everything with little effort on their part (the soft bigotry of lowered expectations).
While it is a shame that this happened to her son, it isn’t a shame that it happened to her - he reaped what she sowed.
Malik Zulu Shabazz, chairman of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense (NBPP):
"We believe in a Black first philosophy and a Black Liberation Theology."
Although it [The New Black Panther Party] says it sees capitalism as the fundamental problem with the world and revolution as the solution, the new party does not draw its influences from Marxism or Maoism as the original party did. Instead, in a carefully-worded, roundabout form of ethnic nationalism, they say that Marx based his ideology and teachings on indigenous African cultures, and that the NBPP therefore need not look to Marxism or Maoism as a basis for their program, but can look to ideologies that stem directly from those African origins.
"The Justice Department originally brought the case against four armed men who witnesses say derided voters with catcalls of "white devil" and "cracker" and told voters they should prepare to be "ruled by the black man." ..."
One poll watcher called police after he reportedly saw one of the men brandishing a nightstick to threaten voters.
As I walked up, they closed ranks, next to each other, the witness told Fox News at the time. So I walked directly in between them, went inside and found the poll watchers. They said theyd been here for about an hour. And they told us not to come outside because a black man is going to win this election no matter what.
He said the man with a nightstick told him, Were tired of white supremacy, and he starts tapping the nightstick in his hand. At which point I said, OK, were not going to get in a fistfight right here, and I called the police....
"Security" patrols stationed at polling places in Philly:
Black Panthers intimidate voters in Philadelphia with night stick:
absonant, atonal, cacophonous, conflicting, cracked, diaphonic, discordant, discrepant, disharmonic, disharmonious, dissonant, flat, grating, harsh, immelodious, incompatible, incongruent, incongruous, inconsistent, inharmonic, inharmonious, musicless, nonmelodious, off, off-key, off-tone, out of pitch, out of tone, out of tune, raucous, sharp, shrill, sour, strident, tuneless, unharmonious, unmelodious, unmusical, untunable, untuned, untuneful
It is possible that I made up my usage, I do that sometimes. I don’t think It was incorrect, however. I think that discordant would have been a better choice.
To the topic at hand, Holder’s droppage (I did make that word up) of the Panther charges gave a signal that misbehavior (mild, I know) would be tolerated. Obama chose to speak out against a perceived racial injustice against his friend, Gates (the police acting stupidly) yet remains strangely silent on the topic of the feral youth. They don’t fit his narrative unless he can find someone else to blame.
You can’t blame this all on Obama. I mean, you can, but I don’t think he deserves all the blame. He’s just a symptom, not the cause.
Good article to read. Informative.
I always enjoy your posts. Thanks!
Without a doubt, no “Christian” would ever, EVER permit the deification and idolization that Obama received. As you wrote, a moral person would have acted immediately and decisively to stomp it out. Obama did not. In fact, it's quite obvious that he relished it. That, by itself, tells me all I really need to know about the man and his so-called Christianity.
Might have meant, “discordant”.
BTW, it does literally frighten me that so many Americans were so totally blind. How could they possibly risk so much on so little??? Years after the election, it still boggles my mind.
0's 'civil' comments:
If they bring a knife, we bring a gun.
Get in their faces.
Get in the streets and get busy.
The Philadelphia police behaved 'stupidly'.
The man is one continuous drone of aggressive 'street-thug' posturing from a pampered poseur.
As soon as 0 was elected, relations between the races took a nose dive -- African-Americans across the U.S. took his election as a sign that it was time for them to, "get theirs."
He has done NOTHING to try to lead toward a united country -- he has only used divisive language.
Yes, 0 is definitely behind the outbreaks in violence.
The only thing truly unknown is whether his inciting of it is by design or through incompetence.
