The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer is leaving behind a country more divided than the one he found.
“Voxsplainer” Ezra Klein, a “narrow-minded fanatic with a mediocre IQ”, writing at The American Prospect in January 2008 fawned, “Obama's finest speeches do not excite. They do not inform. They don't even really inspire. They elevate. They enmesh you in a grander moment, as if history has stopped flowing passively by and, just for an instant, contracted around you, made you aware of its presence and your role in it. He is not the Word made flesh, but the triumph of word over flesh, over color, over despair. The other great leaders I've heard guide us towards a better politics, but Obama is, at his best, able to call us back to our highest selves, to the place where America exists as a glittering ideal and where we, its honored inhabitants, seem capable of achieving it and thus of sharing in its meaning and transcendence.”
One month before Klein’s American Prospect column was published, campaign buddy Oprah Winfrey lauded Obama to a football stadium full of ardent supporters. “We need a leader who’s going to touch our souls. Who’s going to make us feel differently about one another. Who’s going to remind us that we are one another’s keeper. That we are only as strong as the weakest among us. South Carolina: I do believe he’s the one.”
Thus was born the messiah of the Left.
The coronation of Crooked Hillary is now complete. There was never any doubt this day would come. The fix was in.
When your own testimony is suspect, what you need are friends who can make the case for you. That’s what Hillary got all this week: testimonials from both Obamas, Joe Biden, her husband and daughter Chelsea. They held down the rhetorical fort for her.
The Democrats were forced to circle the wagons to protect themselves after WikiLeaks dumped DNC emails that were devastating to the Party. Additionally, the convention organizers had to be shamed into placing American flags on the stage. They had to be shamed into mentioning ISIS. They had to be shamed into giving voice to the families of fallen police officers. The audience disgraced a moment of silence to honor the fallen when they erupted into chants of “Black Lives Matter”.
For Democrats it’s all about the stagecraft, the optics and subliminal perception. After all, they had to appear to be proud of their nominee and feign patriotism to their television audience.
Byron York noted, “Democrats have attacked the theme of Donald Trump's campaign, "Make America Great Again," from the moment Trump became a serious contender for president. There is no need to make America great again, they say, because it is already great. And what makes this country great, many Democrats argue, is its racial, ethnic, gender, and other diversity.”
In the most recent NBC/Wall Street Journal poll, 73 percent of registered voters said the country is on the wrong track, while just 18 percent said it is headed in the right direction. The 73 percent figure is the second-highest in the president's nearly eight years in office. Americans have had enough of tone-deaf, out-of-touch career politicians whose sole interest is to look out for Number One instead of the American people.
And yet, the DNC convention-goers erupted in rapturous applause every damned time they were force-fed their pabulum of lies, deceit and Skittle-shitting unicorns.
The cartoon accompanying this post is a parody of Michelangelo’s fresco painting The Creation of Adam which adorns the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer, determined to defend his own accomplishments and convince Americans to elect Hillary for what would amount to his third term, is reaching out to create her in his likeness.
Americans believe our nation is on the brink of collapse. They fear the future. Two-thirds of voters are convinced our country is on the wrong track. Our betters on the Left insist we are crazy to think that way and we are fed groupthink from The Hive.
Their argument falls on my deaf ears as I was reminded the other day of an HBO Original Series The Newsroom. The premise of the series revolves around “Will McAvoy” a news anchor who attended a panel discussion about why America was the greatest country in the world.
McAvoy delivers a beautifully delivered indictment of the state of American culture. He took the position that America is not the greatest country in the world but it can be.
