I Do Not Hate Obama!
I Do Not Hate Obama!
J. D. Longstreet
A few days ago, a dear friend, who happens to be a liberal, accused me
of hating Obama. At first I was shocked. Then I began to reason it out
and came to understand that the intolerance, within which the liberal
left lives, would certainly trigger that extreme response to one who
simply does not agree with another man’s political philosophy.
I do not hate Obama. I don’t even KNOW the guy! What I DO know and what
I DO hate is his socialist political philosophy. You know, I might even
lighten up a bit on socialism if it were not a proven fact of history
that it destroys nations and rots free men’s souls. It is the most
cruel of all political philosophies on the earth currently. Some day
there might be something worse, but, frankly, I cannot see how anything
short of Satan, himself, setting up rule on earth that could possibly
be any worse that socialism and Obama is the leader of the socialist
movement in America today, by right of his having gained the office of
President of the United States.
It is Mr. Obama’s socialism I hate.
Of course, he has many other failings. He is quite likely the most
naive President this country has ever had. He has, indisputably, a
“Messiah Complex”. The Messiah Complex is said to be the will, the
intention, and yes, the compulsion to be a messiah, to be the redeemer
and savior of the world. Surely you have seen this complex in Mr.
Obama. And this is what makes it so troubling: The messianic wish is
not just a wish to improve things generally for the better, but the
wish of that person with the complex TO BE, personally, the messiah,
the redeemer, of the world.
People with the messiah complex are dangerous. You see, if a group of
people considers an individual to be a messiah, that person doesn't
actually have to claim to be a messiah himself. But if he is treated as
such, by his followers, then he can, rightly, be said to be a person
with a Messiah Complex. Confusing, what? What you then have… is a cult.
I think it is safe to say we have a national cult built around Mr.
Obama in this country today… and it is headed toward disaster.
Mr. Obama strikes me as a person with a strong Inferiority Complex, as
well. As such, he must (he is compelled to) continually prove his
superiority. In an individual this can lead to all sorts of trouble. In
an individual who happens to be a leader of a nation it can lead to
national disaster. All one has to do is look to the history of the
nation of Germany to learn how a leader with a monstrous inferiority
complex can lead a nation to ruin.
I can’t see how anyone, having observed the outpouring of love for the
man, (or messiah) Obama, during the two years of campaigning leading up
to his election can possible deny there is an Obama cult in America.
What makes it doubly dangerous is the fact that it has, indeed, become
a national cult very similar to that in Germany in the 1930’s.
Then, there is Mr. Obama’s globalist view. His IS a globalist.
Globalists believe... at their core, in global governance… a one world
government. That is another Utopian idea of the leftists, the Marxists
and the Socialists
Having said all this... let me reemphasize that Mr. Obama’s overt
socialism troubles me more than any of the other problems of this, in
my opinion, deeply flawed man. Of all his problems this is the one that
will bring the most pain and suffering to the people of this nation.
It is some comfort to know that 46% of the electorate of this country
were not taken in by the slick packaging of Mr. Obama, which played on
his would be messiah image. That means that a little less than half of
the electorate have not loss their grasp on reality.
The question now is... how long before the cult, which has sprung up
around Mr,. Obama, will turn on him? And turn on him they will, for he
certainly cannot fulfill their hopes and dreams and the incredibly high
expectations they have of their "messiah".
Mr. Obama is doomed to failure. I hate the effects of what will happen
between the people of the Obama cult and the sane people in this
country when Obama’s failure becomes so acute that even the mouthpiece
of the Democratic Party, the Mainstream Media, will not be able to
cover it up with their reams of propaganda.
No, I don’t hate Mr. Obama. I hate what he stands for and what he
represents… mainly socialism.
