Obama's Chicken Little fascism

Truth be told, chickens really do roost together.  Specifically, I refer to Donald Trump's “no respect” stooge, Mr. Obama, and the communist duo of ruling dictators, the brutal Castro brothers.  For 55 years, since stridently anti-communist Democrat JFK and the 1960s Cuban Missile Crisis, when the Soviets tried to place nuclear missiles on the island (removed after a successful U.S. naval blockade), America's relations with Cuba have been in a Cold War deep-freeze.
 
This week as another part of his paper tiger legacy (like his failed Hillary Clinton Russian “reset” or his Middle East-destabilizing ISIS-flourishing U.S. troop withdraw from Iraq), Mr. Obama is the first U.S. president to visit this present-day slave state since Calvin Coolidge in 1928.  As Cuba is located ninety miles south of Key West, Florida, Coolidge's journey took three days via battleship.  By contrast, Mr. Obama “winged it” in three-hour luxury on Air Force One, the alms of normalized U.S. relations gifted like candy from his coattails.  As usual, the oft-vacationing Mr. Obama will enjoy himself with his extended Cuban-background “selfie” celebration, but the human rights abuses continue unchanged.  (This reality is further echoed by presidential candidate Ted Cruz, who detailed that nine refugees drowned over the weekend in a futile attempt to escape the same hellhole the obliviously smug Mr. Obama so blithely tours.)

As with the Iranian nuclear deal, where the ayatollahs gained everything and Mr. Obama nothing (but the empty political bragging rights of a slow-roll “deal” that guarantees those religious radicals offensive nuclear weapons after he is out of office in 2017), it seems our president has never met a totalitarian thug he doesn't kowtow to.  But, why wouldn't he like such men – strong-arm bullies mirroring his own proclivities – who act beyond law (or human decency) with all the same impunity of an imperial “pen and phone”?
 
Such are the fascist impulses (a concept historically and factually left-wing, but mis-defined in popular culture as right-wing) clear in the acts of anti-American Barack Obama – and the like-minded leaders he supports.  Like the Castros in Cuba (where opponents are jailed or otherwise literally silenced), Mr. Obama's subtler “smiley face” version involves the modern-day corrosive of stifling political correctness, the propagandist MSM, and the “bully” pulpit inherent in the U.S. presidency to steer the political conversation (read: drown out contrary voices).  Indeed, if Cuba is an example of a “political” carrot (Obama's hope and change progressive agenda), what, then, is the stick?
 
For “change,” a fascist uses any crisis (even an artificial scientifically squishy one) to relentlessly push a hard leftist ideology over the goal line.  In the Obama era, this well established dynamic is known as alarmist “global warming” (now downgraded to the more innocuous-sounding “climate change”).  Despite First Amendment free speech protections, Mr. Obama's attorney general, Loretta Lynch, is considering the manipulation of racketeering laws to prosecute skeptics.  In the final analysis, how is that heavy-handed repression of dissent at all different from the Castro regime's state-run media warning its citizens not to protest during Barack & Michelle's Excellent Adventure?
 
Ignored by the Obamas, America used to be Ronald Reagan's “shining city on a hill”: a beacon for freedom, liberty's clarion call (not to mention a capitalist standard of living worth striving for).  Now, America's political leadership turns a blind eye to widespread cruelty to play patty-cake photo op – on bended knee – with other leftist tyrants.
