Obama's All the Rage
Obama ran for president four years ago in the guise of Martin Luther King, the man of reconciliation and peace. He has governed like his hero Malcolm X, the celebrated radical of Obama's crowd. That's why Attorney General Holder is now running the most biased Justice Department since Jim Crow. That's why the Obama's acceptance speech had to be moved to a smaller venue.
This time the candidate can't be MLK anymore, and his chances depend on making you believe he is inevitable again. That's the media mission for the next eight weeks. If you don't show up, they can win. You are now the target of a campaign of 24/7 demoralization.
The polls are over-sampling O voters and under-sampling Romney votes. All they have is somebody's word on the phone that they intend to vote for Obama. They use math models to decide whom to believe. Like global warming, you can play a lot of games with math models.
If you tamper with likely voter samples you can prove anything. The media have gotten away with that for years and years, using engineered samples disguised as facts. You start with the answer you want and cherry pick the facts that support your conclusion. It's Sex, Lies and Democrats.
Obama's amazing mud-slinging is aimed at the ignorant middle, the gullible who can be made to believe anything. They may well decide this election.
"Wouldn't it be nice to kill all the Republicans?" said a nice liberal lady at a Labor Day barbecue. When I asked her about that she laughed it off. But she said it with a big smile, as if that's the funny joke in her crowd. That's rage, lady. It's not a joke.
A young, educated biracial man had a couple of beers at a party and started to curse Ethiopian cab drivers. I couldn't believe it. Then I remembered other liberals who showed flashes of racial anger, including the white kid who told me four years ago that he voted for Obama "because Hillary was too white." Racism is racism even when it's flipped around.
If you invert anti-black racism into anti-white racism all the white Democrats are going to feel strange. At some point they might realize that slavery went out in 1865. Cognitive dissonance rears its ugly head. People in a self-suspecting culture start to have all the feelings they are told not they have.
After almost four years of Obama, rage is now all the rage, and I suspect it has penetrated the party culture, along with alcohol, sex, dope and late-night rage comedians. Television now tells kids that aggressive ridicule is supposed to be funny, and millions get their "news" there. Male gender roles are under constant attack by the gay lobby, and heterosexual men and women are confused and secretly very angry. The phrase "that's so gay" has entered the pop culture, and nobody can tell if it's a joke or an insult. Still they aren't allowed to talk freely about love, race, and money. When the left conquered the media we became a Fear Society even without the benefit of a thought police.
People start believing they are racists, and expressions of self-hatred become accepted in black and white popular culture. Rap stars kill other rappers in shoot-outs and the media rarely condemn them. Young celebrities die of "heart attacks" after years of cocaine abuse. Jesse Jackson Jr is supposed to be suffering from bipolar disorder, but chances are that it's made worse by a self-destructive culture.
Americans are not more at peace today, four years into this glorified presidency. We are the most surveyed, manipulated and focus-grouped society in history. We never get tired of studying our own navels. But instead of self-knowledge we just get more paranoid about our sins, real and imagined.
As individuals, none of us can do much to stop the rot. What we can do is to get out and vote in November. We can anticipate a media assault on our values and our optimism in the coming months. then, when a little window opens up in the minds of the brainwashed we can tell a little bit of the truth. The left isn't trying to be polite. They are nasty and they revel in it. Just zing them when that little window opens up.
