Obama, Fool or Prince of Fools?
The Kentucky Political Review ^ | Jack Richardson, IV

Posted on 11/25/2012 6:19:24 AM PST by MeneMeneTekelUpharsin

The following quote was attributed to an unidentified Czechoslovakian Republic leader, a country that suffered generations under the evil of Socialist / Marxist corruption. The writer clearly and succinctly described what may be a troubling reality for America.

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.

The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”

It is probably time to move to other pressing issues and quit complaining about this administration being in power and begin to deal with it. The outcome is obvious, the electorate is largely depraved and constantly trying to bring up some reason to "go after" the administration which is exactly what the administration wants or Obama would not have said, "Come after me." How ironic that the administration through its media mouthpieces also posted talking points on how to deal with political conflict at home at Thanksgiving. That was a very troubling sign that on the very holiday established to give thanks for our blessings and survival, the leftists are trying to maneuver to conquer the minds of those who oppose them. I have never seen this type of strife promoted by government in my lifetime. All other great leaders we have had tried to bring the people together. This one and his backers are doing the opposite.

He and the people (both domestic and foreign) behind the scenes who supported him are looking for a reason to further restrict the freedoms of the people who opposed him and his party. Don't give them an excuse through poor behavior. Time to go underground.

Due to the fact that the nation is now divided not necessarily regionally, but ideologically, makes the situation all the more dangerous. When some signed petitions for secession, we see that the divide is nationwide, not just one locale. Many Texans called for secession while at the same time many residents of Austin, TX, a liberal stronghold, called for secession from the rest of Texas. Others in the nation in positions of influence called for stripping those calling for secession of citizenship and deporting them.

If this continues, the consequences will be severe and far worse than the first civil war. The divisions will not be directly by race or location, but by philosophy. So, who is the enemy? Within neighborhoods, how would you know who all of the leftist, liberal-leaning people were? Or, how would they know who you are? Those foolish enough to put up signs and place bumper stickers would be obvious and would be the first targets. Within the military and law enforcement organizations, how would they know who was for them and who was against them? You can't tell by looking at someone what their values/political foundation necessarily is (unless they are Middle Eastern males age 17-40...lol).

The real danger is that this would be a total civil war with neighbor against neighbor, individual on the street against individual with many innocent people having no desire to even discuss the subject getting killed just because someone "thought" they were the enemy. When people become enraged about ideology, they don't stop to ask questions, evaluate or make very many rational decisions.

Wake up America and return to God. Otherwise, Satan, whose eternal goal has been through lies (The father of lies) to get humans to fight and kill each other including the son of God. Returning back to God and the values of the Bible is the ONLY answer to this problem.

First paragraph should read "...the electorate is largely depraved and some who realize what the truth is are looking for a reason to "go after" the administration...."

Sorry about the error.

Now it was Nimrod who excited them to such an affront and contempt of God. He was the grandson of Ham, the son of Noah, a bold man, and of great strength of hand. He persuaded them not to ascribe it to God, as if it was through his means they were happy, but to believe that it was their own courage which procured that happiness. He also gradually changed the government into tyranny, seeing no other way of turning men from the fear of God, but to bring them into a constant dependence on his power. He also said he would be revenged on God, if he should have a mind to drown the world again; for that he would build a tower too high for the waters to be able to reach! and that he would avenge himself on God for destroying their forefathers !

from Josephus --not inspired Scripture, but a fascinating description of Nimrod (a type of the antichrist)and his rebellion against God and why the Tower of Babel was built. Note the bold print--is that not today?

Nimrod, the mighty hunter. Don’t know about the validity of the comment by Josephus. However, the world has seen its share of individuals with that mindset down through history.

Time to go underground

I agree. Confronting the ruling class directly is NOT going to be effective. Far too many are civically disengaged and those that are not are almost all in it for power. Patriots need a state by state underground effort to get the right people into office. I am talking about stealth candidates. Starting with local officials and working our way up the political food chain.

The problem is that by the time they make it to the top of the political food chain, they are as corrupt as the rest.

Stealth candidates. Interesting. I don’t disagree, but we may be too late. This is very similar with what the left has already done with the courts, academia, media, priesthood, and the like. They started this maneuvering to rig the game decades ago.

The collectivists own the block by block urban zones, the school systems, the media outlets and the universities. Each of those is a bubble of ignorance.

Consider, how are each of those won? And, the end objective must be carefully defined.

Is there a historical precedent, other than the spread of the gospel of Jesus?

Very darn unlikely.

There has been no Czechoslovakia for 20 years, since 1993 when it split into Slovakia and the Czech Republic.

Since the author can't get such basic history right, why should we believe this unattributed quote is from an actual Czech leader?

Brief search has American Thinker attributing it to Prager Zeitung (Czech Republic) in April 2011. It has been quoted so many times on FR and in blogs that I doubt that is its original source.

As to ‘Czechoslovakia’, since the election FR seems to have gotten dumber and dumber.

He's a fool, prince of fools, but also a tool. The people who put him in power are the real enemy. They want to eliminate America as a world power, eliminate most of our God-given rights, and destroy capitalism of the type that America specializes in making us the most inclusive and socially mobile country. Nothing less than a European feudal state will satisfy them.

Those foreign enemies of America were aided by witting and unwitting fools (e.g. unions) and genuine enemies here. Just one example: I got to listen to a Planned Parenthood anti-Romney ad every 10 minutes on the country music station in Virginia. Their reward will be a flood of our tax dollars to continue their evil work.

...The quotation is real, but there is no newspaper by this name. Apparently the comment originated with an email made around 2010 or earlier, and was picked up and spread by some other blogs, especially Gates of Vienna...

Good post! We do need to pray that Obama is not able to bring to pass his destructive agenda any longer. Pray that God will intervene for America and that the Evil one...meaning Satan...will not be able to use this president for his evil purposes. I know a lot of people probably feel that the 40 days of prayer failed, but did it? If we were putting all our hopes in that alone, it was a ritual only. God is interested in our returning to Him and if it takes more adversity to bring it about, that may be just what He will use.

For those of us who do pray, we need to continue as if the election had not happened yet. We need to pray often and fervently, and as a righteous people. I think that God wants all of us to be changed to be more like Christ and if our prayers increase because of our circumstances and we change (to be better Christians) because of it we might still see revival come to America. Many of us are praying for revival. Maybe God is using Obama’s re-election to bring it about. Revival comes when a nation is desperate, not when it is enjoying plenty and feels that it doesn’t need Him. So, pray on and don’t give up. I still recommend that we pray for Pelosi, Reid, etc., to be removed from power however God so chooses to do it. We need these lapdogs off the scene. We need to start praying that the racist members of the House black caucus be removed, if we are going to see the race issue die down. We need to ask God to deal with the (not so) Rev. Al and Jesse so that peace can truly come to America in regards to race. God can take care of these people. Are we willing to put in the smallest amount of time to pray? Let’s do this.

Both Prince of fools and utter fool. Others in history with the same political inclinations were tough and smart and accomplished what they did by dint of talent, cunning and ability, but our top fool is an empty suit elevated for purely superficial attributes. He LITERALLY has no piratical ability or talent for the job. He has perpetrated doubl-ended stupidities such as Benghazi and Fast and Furious without the slightest doubt at the beginning or rebuke in the aftermath. This silly ass thinks he's a man of destiny. He and we will find out that he is...as a fool. A perfect fool.

I agree with you .. but when Rush Limbaugh stated the same reasoning for the repub election loss .. he was pilloried all over the place.

And .. Rush also said, “I hope he fails”. Rush said that because he already knew what the disastrous outcome was going to be if O managed to succeed.

Well .. O has succeeded in a lot of way because of complicity with the media, and because that media has dumbed down the electorate .. which is a continuation of the dumbing down they have been receiving in our schools (run by mostly democrats) for over 50 years.

When are people going to realize Rush is a lot smarter than people/MSM give him credit.

The big push is on to get rid of Rush .. and it’s ramped up considerably since the election; the repub elites want him to “shut up”. But .. they’ve tried it before and it never worked .. Rush has too many loyal followers; me being one of them.

I’m always willing to take on his critics .. no matter who. And .. a lot of his media critics are just jealous/envious of his success.
