Posted on 01/16/2017 4:15:42 AM PST by NYer
It was a bold statement, revolutionary even, surpassed only by the response of those in attendance, who, rather than pausing to reflect upon such an audacious assertion, wildly applauded. To be sure, these Obama enthusiasts would have ecstatically cheered anything he said at that moment.
There was a full-fledged personality cult in motion at that time. The new president could have promised anything and received a giddy reaction. Obama himself admitted to serving as a kind of “blank screen” upon which Americans desiring some warm-and-fuzzy “hope and change” could project whatever they wanted.
But even then, the words “fundamentally transform” should have alarmed everyone. We Americans generally don’t do fundamental transformation. We make changes, yes, small and large, but who among us — other than the most radical revolutionaries — actually want to fundamentally transform the nation?
The reality is that the true fundamental transformation has been in the realm of culture, notably in matters of sexual orientation, marriage and family. The shift there has been unprecedented and far beyond anyone’s imagination eight years ago.
Instead, in the Obama era, we are the ones portrayed as the outliers, as abnormal, as extremists, as “haters.” If you dissent from this new vociferous breed of human-nature redefiners, they sue you, they jail you, they smear you, they boycott you, they harass you, they ruin you — and they do so (with no sense of their hypocrisy) in the name of “tolerance” and “diversity.”
Whether you’re a Baptist baker, a Catholic wedding photographer or a Mormon florist, they refuse your appeals to your conscience; they steamroll you. Changes by Obama and his allies here have constituted a major attack on religious liberty, where 200-year-old First Amendment guarantees have been torched by modern culture warriors discerning heretofore unknown higher rights like “marriage equality” and co-ed toilets.

it will all seem like a bad dream soon.
all the executive orders and Muslim plants driven away .
clean sweep coming.
"This president can be a transformative leader (he has that potential in my view), but only if he embraces and fights for a transformative agenda."--Sam Webb, Chairman Communist Party USA
Obama State of the Union: He got the ball rolling:
"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or if we wait for some other time.
We are the ones we've been waiting for.
We are the change that we seek"-- BARACK OBAMA
A Landslide Mandate For Change
A breakthrough election
Congratulations on an extraordinary history making election!
The tears of joy we all shared as crowds gathered to watch the election results here and throughout the world dramatize the new moment we are in.
July 1, 2009...
Change is Here, Change is Coming
--Sam Webb, National Chair, Communist Party, USA
"Barack Obama told supporters that
'change has come to America' as he
claimed victory in a historic presidential election."
He tried..he did...and america rejected it.
Though...in his sick mind he will be known as a success instead of the worst potus in history.
he wasn’t all bad- he carried on the legacy of the great Dr. Rev. Martin Luther the King, he kept it real, he didn’t trust Whitey, he celebrated gays/trannies and helped millions of overweight, 60 IQ refugees fleeing from the wars in mexico to walk across into Los Angeles where he then gave them checks, food, beer and automobiles they can hit us with while drunk. Oh wait, he WAS all bad. My mistake
The guy has no love nor respect for the USA, period! FReepers knew he was a communist punk in 2007.
He presided over the, “transitioning” of America from a land of Liberty to one of libertines. Sexual gratification without boundaries is the adolescent craving of the left.
They talk of love and commitment but willingly kill the babies born from their promiscuity or abandon them to, “the village” to raise when the task gets hard. Yet, it is the, “intolerant” they blame for the poverty and crime and abandonment within society who has to deal with their self-indulgent depravity.
I hope this relativism will be a fleeting cultural affair and people will regain the virtues of perusing happiness through work and commitment and faith in God.
...who among us other than the most radical revolutionaries actually want to fundamentally transform the nation?
Apparently around ~65m that voted for the POS in 2012.
Yes, he did his utmost to turn this nation into a third world country with a communist or at least anti-Christian/atheist dictatorship. He was raised to be against the USA and he strove to ‘defeat’ the glory of this nation that he was taught to hate.
Very well worth reading the entire article by Paul Kengor:
Obama didn’t do much that cant be erased with executive order. And Obamacare will collapse anyway.
The only lasting thing this clOwn left is giving legitimacy to the “all whites are privileged and racist” black pamper / BLM idiots.
I think most Americans were incensed by his attack on religion; a true Obamanation. We must continue to pray for our new President and beseech God to give him the strength to reverse the works done by liberals.
Dear Lord, please protect and strengthen the Trump and Pence families as they go about their jobs. Guide them in their decisions and cast down their enemies. Help America to turn back to God by choosing faith, character, integrity, and duty. I ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen
The worst damage Obama has done is to the Constitution itself.
Because of the refusal to uphold their oaths by every one of our appointed and elected the precedent has been set that a President does not need to be a natural born citizen.
Every anchor baby is now considered eligible to be President.
Even worse, some think even foreign born only an American on one’s mother’s side are now eligible.
The wisdom of the founders in requiring someone who could not possibly be anything but an American is proven by Barry Soetoro/Barack Hussein Obama.
Natural born citizen means born here of citizen parents.
No foreign birth
No foreign parent(s)
No foreign citizenship(s)
Solely an American, no possibility of being anything else.
No, the nightmare of hatefulled libs and demanding LGBTWHATERS will always be in the next cubical, in front of you in the grocery line, chastising you from the pulpit, moving into the house next door and on your tv making a nice relaxing evening impossible.
Thanks for your posts and the link. The anti-american culture war predates Obama, but he accelerated it and implemented a lot of it.
China and Russia dream president wonder who is his handlers are bet R.
I will remember Obama as the vile, hateful, evil, moslem, marxist bastard that he is. I despise everything about him. I hate him for the destruction that he has brought to my country and the world. God forgive me, but I hope that he does not have a long life after Friday.
