Marxists and Muslims, United? Searching for ONE Good Liberal

What IS the Obama doctrine? Is there a stated goal at all? How can he be against "nation-building" and our “policing the world,” and then justify turning around and creating no fly zones and launching missiles into sovereign nations?

I have long been troubled by the parallel tactics between the radical Islamists and Marxist-Leninists. Several factors in common begin with the basic demand (actually faithful belief) that the world will ultimately go their way and that the US is the only thing standing in their way. When you add that the "dog-eating" President holds the similar third world view--that the US is in the way of progress for "developing nations"--it is easy to see why he is sympathetic with these revolutions. That obtuse notion that one can gain only by repressing others was popularized by Marx and is taught in all of our Universities. That it is wrong, and is of no consequence to the liars who operate on it. Nevertheless, it is chilling to see an American President evidently uniting in purpose with Marxists and radical Islamists against the interests of our nation.

United in being our enemy, there is little doubt that both Marxists and Islamists love the tactic of creating conflict. This is a Leninist tactic based on the Marxian belief that nature moves toward order and that any chaos will set the stage for a result that will be better than what preceded it. So stir up enough useful idiots and you can set the stage for a crisis that you can "use". This is what we are seeing today all over North Africa and what is now spreading to Pakistan and beyond.

It is truly stunning to see this administration embarrass themselves with their mind-boggling displays of tone deafness, utter incompetence and subsequent deadpan delivery of corrections devoid of any apologies.

The "brilliant" Hilary Clinton addressed the World by effectively taking the first slash at free speech. She did to the glee of, if not on behalf of the Islamists who want to kill American liberty. To even dignify the idiotically wrong intelligence that a video played any role was a fundamental betrayal of the American way. Her over the top rhetorical assault on speech that she referenced as "however hateful," was akin to blaming the victim for the rape. She was 100% wrong in reporting that the video was to blame. It is horrifying, and raises serious questions.

Are we to assume that Clinton, Obama and American intelligence rely on Libyan news reports about why an Embassy is attacked? Do we not have any intelligence on the ground? How about the beneficiaries of our military aid in support of their coups? Can these geniuses not get any intelligence from the leaders of these North African nations? How about some defense of our embassies? Obama’s failure to extract any dividends from his unilateral investment of American military resources into that much nation-building is either a stunning showing of utter incompetence, or a stunning revelation of his sinister goals.

Despite Obama's apparently concerted effort to relieve Jimmy Carter from his record as the most pathetically incompetent President in all aspects of policy foreign and domestic, the "47%" appear to be ready to re-elect him. That is possibly the reason to most be afraid. Could we actually have reached the tipping point of Senator Phil Gramm's metaphor in that those "riding in the wagon" outnumber those "pulling the wagon"?

Obama is buffered by the mainstream media that protects him by refusing to question him on his failures. They prefer to viciously attack Romney on his words and not his policies. More troubling, is that while Obama's polices signal disaster for America, where is the liberal defense of the things true "liberals" used to care about like free speech, or free religious expression?

What about the right of a Coptic Christian whose homeland has been stolen by 7th Century religious zealots to create a cheesy video about his view of the man the radicals are following? Whatever happened to their "willingness to defend to the death" the right of people to speak their minds?

Are there no honest liberals who will lead the criticism on this administration's witting or unwitting aid in the expansion of religious zealotry and destruction of free speech?

Not one?

Unholy Alliance: Radical Islam and the American Left
by David Horowitz

Amazon Book Review:
"Vastly Illuminating!" September 25, 2004
By Kat Bakhu

"I had long wondered why people on the Left had the propensity to speak more positively about people who would slit their throats than they do about their own country, which affords them more freedom and opportunity than anywhere else. David Horowitz has answered that question thoroughly and convincingly in his Unholy Alliance. Where I felt bewildered and confused, I now feel crystal clear. Unholy Alliance is such a great book.

It begins with the leftist movements at the beginning of the 20th Century, and works its way up to the present day, exploring the anti-American attitude of these movements in detail. Horowitz shows that the enemies of the US back then are largely the same group today, operating under the same misperceptions, making the same mistakes, and pursuing the same impossible utopia.

Individual chapters are included on the Patriot Act (I was persuaded that it is a GOOD thing); the democratic flip-flop on Iraq once G.W. Bush implemented what they agreed with Clinton needed to be done; the driving components of the current anti-war movement; as well as chapters on individual personalities who are major spokespeople of the Left. Horowitz covers a lot of ground, and he covers it concisely and clearly. Unholy Alliance is richly informative without ever being boring or plodding.

This book is so illuminating that I simply cannot do justice to it here. I love people who reason so clearly that they help me get my own reasoning clear. Horowitz is just that type of person! In the terrain of mindless clichés (no-blood-for-oil, etc.), he is a breath of real fresh air."

Unholy Alliance: Radical Islam and the American Left -by David Horowitz
Not all dissent is equal, and Americans whose actions are calculated to give aide and comfort to the butchers who murdered 3,000 innocent people on September 11, 2001 are not patriotic at all... they are, in fact, quite the opposite.

What IS the Obama doctrine?

Simple. If you have seen the picture of Obama bowing to the Saudi King, you have seen the Obama doctrine.

He does not want to destroy America! He wants to permanently cripple the USA. He want to maim it. Cripple America into a subservient position in the world.

At home, he wants America constant economic agony and turmoil. So, he and his enlightened minions can constantly "not let a good crisis go to waste" by implementing federal government control via executive order.

Like he said, he wants to fundamentally transform America.

“where is the liberal defense of the things true “liberals” used to care about like free speech, or free religious expression?”

I don’t believe that “liberals” ever cared for these things. They just pretend to care to lend legitimacy to their other endeavors, which are all anti-freedom and un-American.

The big O has told us many times....we simply didn’t listen, or couldn’t believe it! Here he is, in his own words.

NONE. Hooray Gina Loudon! OUTSTANDING article, Kaslin. Thanks for posting.

I have long been troubled by the parallel tactics between the radical Islamists and Marxist-Leninists.

Death & Plunder with their ancillary accompanying tactic. It's how they roll...over everyone.

DEFUND their collectives. DEPOPULATE them from our body politic.

It's not that hard to...
