Barack Obama’s gaffe at a private San Francisco fund raiser made me smile. It pretty much typifies the elitism and hypocrisy that characterizes a vast contingent of the Democrat party.
He was complaining about not being able to win over many white, working class voters when he said: “It’s not surprising, then, they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”
Why do I smile? Not because the faux pas might have cost Obama the nomination of his party. Not because Democrats typically self-destruct right around this time during presidential election years. No, I smile because this sort of thing exists just below the polished veneer of a preponderance of liberals and here it is, exposed for all to see, by one of their quasi-leaders.
Middle America has long been regarded as “fly-over” territory by these elitist hypocrites, who think that they know what is best for all of us. From their lofty perches, they pontificate that guns, religion, and individualism are bad for us, while abortions and illegal immigration are beneficial concepts.
Yeah, right. I love it how power mongers such as Obama are always telling us how they’re helping us (ostensibly, for our own good, but clearly, to buy our votes). They marginalize those of us who think differently about some of these core trigger issues, pronouncing us as misguided, and (behind closed doors at expensive party fund raisers) bitter and just plain stupid. Does this sound familiar? It should. It is the same mantra spouted by them about us Republicans!
Their issues with religion appear merely paranoiac on the surface, but what lies beneath is their deep-seated feelings that they are competing with God for His vassals. They can harken back to Karl Marx, who proclaimed that religion is the opiate of the masses, when they tell us to believe in them instead of believing in God. Their cradle-to-grave philosophy is essentially a God replacement. Have faith in Government, not God! Jesus H. Christ!
We should shun religion, shun individualism, and all work together for the collective good. Thank you, Karl. You know what I mean: from each according to his ability, to each according to his need. “Need” is, of course, determined by those foxes who are guarding the henhouse, whose needs are much greater than those of the proletariat. Communism sounded pretty good to the workers who were subjugated by it until this dirty little fact emerged: the only folks who get to live the good life are those with the power to determine need.
Let’s have an Ann Coulter book burning in the public square, just for good measure! That’ll get it started. Then, throw in the Bible, the Talmud and and and…wait! no, not the Koran.
What I really need is a Harvard educated political rookie telling me what is good for me! Why is it that these liberals with their God complexes think they always know best what is good for all of us, but cannot ever enunciate just exactly what that is? Their attitude of moral superiority is continually contradicted by their own personal amorality and greed. We’re ripe for the taking with that kind of stuff only because our Republican leadership has failed us and the lefty goons sense an opportunity to dominate. They smell blood! However, their sort of domination is so transparent and so ultimately oppressive to the individual that it never lasts long. We won’t let it. We’re not the idiots they think we are.
We need change, they say. From what to what? From rich, elitist power mongers on the right side of the aisle who don’t give a damn about us to hypocritical, elitist power mongers on the other side of the aisle who don’t give a damn about us (who, by the way, are quite rich themselves, in case you haven’t checked recently)?
That’s what is funny. Democrats are just the same as Republicans, except that they prefer governmental control of everything over private control. If the government were the only employer, they’d be quite happy. That way, they could control us all. That’s what they want. It makes them richer and more powerful.
Behind closed doors they make fun of the very people from whom they derive their power and whom they feign supporting. They know that they don’t know what is best for all of us. They most assuredly know what is best for them, but they sure have a funny way of expressing it. Perhaps they truly believe that we are all stupid and misguided, and that consequently, we will let it pass. We won’t.
It is all a charade and this time it was exposed for all to see.
One change would do us all good. We need a change from short-term political tactics and philosophies. All those ideologues who jerk our political and philosophical chains need to understand that this, by and large, is a God fearing, gun toting nation, and their attempts to usurp those basic rights (yes, rights) will only serve to result in their eventual failure. Contrary to what they think, most of us Americans are not stupid! Far from it! So, let us change from this philosophy of change for change’s sake and get back to some good, old, sound conservative thinking, shall we?
