Note: This is the first part of a three-part series entitled “The justification for lying.”
Throughout Barack Obama’s campaign for the presidency, as I watched him backtrack on the nature of his many questionable relationships, on issues such as gun control, abortion rights and taxation, and on his feelings about the United States, the words of another famous revolutionary, Vladimir Lenin, kept coming to mind. Said Lenin, “To tell the truth is a petty bourgeois habit, whereas for us to lie is justified by our objectives.”
Lenin, along with Leon Trotsky and his other comrades in arms, was a character right out of the book Eric Hoffer published years later (in 1951): “The True Believer.” Whether it’s global warming or cooling, gay marriage, animal rights, or any other “cause,” a genuine true believer has no problem telling blatant lies in order to further that cause.
After all, if one believes that the end he seeks is truly noble, then any means is justified, no matter how immoral the means or how harmful they may be to others. As the esteemed college professor William Ayers dispassionately pointed out, “In revolutions, innocent people have to die.” His humanitarian words are enough to warm the cockles of your heart.
Which brings us to the man who managed to gain the presidency through an unofficial coronation by the mainstream media. Valid citizenship, Muslim connections, close ties to an organization responsible for massive voter fraud, longtime relationships with terrorists and anti-American zealots – and more – were simply off limits for discussion.
ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, Newsweek, et al. seemed to feel that asking The Chosen One any questions whatsoever about his dark past, his voting record as both a state and U.S. senator, and, above all, his own words would be an affront to his African-American heritage. (Has anyone bothered to notice that he’s also half white?!)
When I refer to Obama as The Chosen One, it is not in jest. I believe he really was chosen. I’m not a big fan of conspiracy theories, but I do believe there has been a centuries-old, albeit loosely organized, conspiracy by GAVEC-driven people (guiltism, angerism, villainism, envyism, covetism) to establish a communist paradise on earth.
Never mind that we have already witnessed the realities of such a paradise – e.g., the Soviet Union, Cuba, North Korea, China, Mozambique … the list goes on and on. The fact that every instance of this paradise-on-earth fantasy has led to unimaginable poverty, torture and death for millions of people seems not to have slowed the GAVEC-inspired goal for more of the same.
And little wonder: Those who lead communist revolutions live like kings! As in George Orwell’s “Animal Farm,” they ascribe to the ideology that “all animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.” I thought about this as I watched Obama walking through the White House with President Bush.
So, with the caveat that the worldwide conspiracy may have lacked centralized, coordinated planning over the years – especially since the fall of the Soviet Union – I honestly believe that Obama was chosen at a relatively young age as the person most capable of infiltrating the U.S. government and ultimately making it to the Oval Office.
If you’ve done any reading about Obama’s Muslim past, his mentoring by American communist Frank Marshall Davis, his close relationship (by his own account) with Rev. Jeremiah Wright, his long-term association with Bill Ayers … you should not find what I’m saying here to be the least bit inconceivable.
I believe what the paradise-on-earth crowd saw in Obama was a kid they could groom to “fit in” with the white power structure. They knew that a Sharpton-Jackson type of black would be too rough around the edges to be accepted.
Now, the man whose past has been carefully hidden from the public is about to become the chief executive of the once-proud American Empire – with a socialist Congress behind him! It might make a great novel, but it’s a sad reality for America.
So, now that Obama – through the grace of the Republican Party’s stupidity in nominating Mush McCain – has made it to the top spot, what can we expect? No one can be certain, but there are at least three options that come to mind, and in Part 2 of this column tomorrow we’ll examine each of them.
