Enemy Inside The Gate
Free Republic original content | May 30, 2012 | By Laz. A. Mataz

Posted on 05/30/2012 6:38:08 PM PDT by Lazamataz

It can be argued, by mere observation, that Barack Obama has little fealty to America, and more fealty to certain concepts and ideologies. Those ideologies are Black Liberation Theology, of which he was a student in Chicago’s Trinity United Church of Christ for many decades; of global governance; and of socialism... perhaps even Marxism.

The proof, as they say, is in the pudding. One may readily discard a politicians words, and instead look to their works. The words are intended to mislead, and the works are intended to achieve.

Obama's actions that show his loyalty to a very controversial view, that of Black Liberation Theology, are many. Black Liberation Theology is based on an underlying assumption few of us would disagree with -- that Jesus held out for the oppressed and that in American history, blacks were oppressed. No one would deny these two theses. Where Black Liberation Theology diverges from mainstream, even rational, thought is that it also holds that there is such a thing as a 'white church', that it is a work of the Antichrist, and that all American institutions are, by definition and presently, racist.

Barack Obama's primary actions that show he embraces these doctrines are in his appointment and ongoing support of Eric Holder, the Attorney General of the United States. Mr. Holder has steadfastly refused to prosecute the New Black Panthers for issuing death threats and bounties against George Zimmerman, and refused to prosecute members of the same organization who expressly brandished weapons in an effort to deter white voters from entering a voting place in Philadelphia. Recently, he has condemned Voter ID -- measures intended to stop voter fraud -- as an attack on the 'sacred right to vote'. These are several of the more visible actions. How many hundreds of similar actions (based on a dismissive attitude towards prosecution of only one segment of the population) are there, that the public does not hear about? We also have the outright admission of Mr. Holder that he is expressly allied with the New Black Panther party, when he famously said that the mere existence of the case demeans 'my people'.

Obama's own speech shows that he is an advocate for global governance. When abroad on November the 9th, 2010, he stated that "There is going to be a tug-of-war within the US between those who see globalization as a threat and those who accept we live in a open integrated world, which has challenges and opportunities." This particular allegiance can safely be marked as 'confirmed' by his own words. His actions mirror his words, as well: He pushed for the Law of the Sea Treaty, which empowers the UN to tax all nations, including ours, by seizing royalties nations collect for use of international waters near their borders. This is but one egregious example, there are many more.

Certainly no one can seriously argue, at this juncture, that Obama is not predisposed to socialism. He famously stated, in the Joe the Plumber incident, that he "[thinks] when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody." Most people would define that as a form of socialism, in which wealth is distributed and 'leveled' from those who create it, to those that do not. Then, of course, we have the infamous 'Obamacare' measure, in which people would be forced to participate in an insurance program that the Administration and it's allies have admitted, would be best run as a single-payer (read: government) program. In other countries, they readily admit that this is Socialized Medicine. Here, in America, the pundits are not so forthcoming.

So, we have seen that Obama has loyalty to a lot of ideologies that America and her citizens have long opposed. When a man is behoven to ideologies over a nation, and over the will of the citizens and contrary to their benefit, he cannot be said to be loyal to that nation.

For nations can endure many setbacks and deprivations, but when it is lead by a man disloyal to that nation’s interest, when he prefers certain ideologies to national loyalty, and when he cedes sovereignty to a global interest, how is a nation to survive that? When the halls of the nations capitols ring with arguments meant to aid external and foreign entities at the cost of a nation, that nation cannot long survive, An enemy army outside the gate is much less fearsome than an enemy ruler, directing our own destruction, inside the gate.

It seems we have such a leader.

Thanks! It's part of an ongoing effort to shift Free Republic into being a source of original content, as well as its long-term role of being a news commentary site.

Let me know, and I will add you to the ping list for my original works.

I’ll wait for you to comment on the death camps affair. Because, I think, this is a deeper symptom of the disease! (”The slip of tongue” was actually written in a WH published document and read off a TOTUS.)

Nice work! I’ve been using the Trojan Horse analogy since 2008 - the mainstream media wheeled this guy inside the gates back in 2008 with the whole “hope, change, bipartisan, pragmatic, etc., etc., etc” baloney when in fact the guy is a committed Marxist who grew up HATING this country. The enemy is indeed inside the gates.

Agree 100%. To Hussein and all of his allied ilk, the security and heritage of the United States is just one big store to loot. We need to eject every Socialist and Socialist-sympathizer, by whichever “B” necessary.

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.” ― Marcus Tullius Cicero

Obama may have fascist leanings, with his many attempts to circumvent the law of the United States in his leadership. Certainly he strikes a very Mussolini-like profile in several photographs.

But I argue that if he is a fascist, then he is the laziest would-be despot in history -- and I would further argue that if Hitler had been as lazy as Obama, the 1940's would have been a pretty nice decade.

The scariest part, that scares me to death, is not so much the leader we now have, but the people in the US that have and do support him, and will vote him back in.

I’m scared that we are outnumbered.

We are outnumbered, those of us who reason well, versus those who don't think too much, but just react to the latest carefully-managed news headline, and who want 'free stuff'.

Another great one, Laz! So glad I'm on The List!

Lurker already mentioned the quote from Cicero that's on my FR Profile Page, which came to mind as I read your excellent piece.

Obama has proven himself a marxist traitor. And nobody pushed or forced him -- he has done it of his own volition.

May God grant that we are rid of him within the year.

Then we'll have to pray that the Mitt-wit is somewhat less virulently socialist. It's disheartening that that's the best we can expect, but so it goes until 2016.

Don't be so quick to jump on that indication. Remember, when the country was born, a very sizable contingent of the citizenry wanted to stay a colony of England, and pledged their loyalty to the King.
