Another wonderfully insightful column by Vox Day: “Obama’s dog days.”
Barack Obama’s confessed dog-eating has struck a powerful chord in the American psyche because, as Vox Day puts it, it shows “he (Obama) simply isn’t an American in the cultural or nationalist sense. He does not share the traditions, customs and fundamental perspectives of most of the people over whom he presides.”
Indeed, to an average American, eating a dog is just one step removed from cannibalism. It’s an extraordinarily repulsive act in the American culture. Whoever eats a dog isn’t going to garner many friends and will be looked upon with revulsion if not loathing. Nothing else can advertise how much Obama is estranged from the American experience and Americans in general as the mental image of Obama chowing down on puppies. This alone could cost him the election.
