Rush is wrong on Obama's 'legacy' interest in a nuclear Iran
Rush has been arguing lately that Obama is pushing the Iran deal as his "legacy." Rush doesn't get our truly anti-American president. "Legacy" makes it sound as if Obama thinks the Iran deal is a positive accomplishment. As if Obama believes his own speeches that it will stop a nuclear Iran, make the mullahs like us, and promote peace in the Middle East. This is the school of thought that sees Obama as naïve or inept, but not evil.
To understand the true nature of the legacy President Obama is aiming for, we need only go back to the full quote of "God damn America" from Obama's spiritual guide and mentor, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright.
God damn America for treating our citizens as less than human. God damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme.
This is Obama's gospel and chief motivating force as our commander in chief: to make sure America is no longer supreme. He wants to cut us down to size by building up our biggest enemy, Iran. He wants to reconfigure the power structure of the Middle East so that the one country over which we have zero leverage will become the hegemon. Once a nuclear arms race gives both Sunnis and Shiites nuclear weapons, the Middle East will become impervious to our influence, as Russia and China are.
We will no longer be the world power.
And it's a twofer for Obama. In such a Middle East, Israel will be in grave danger. Obama loathes Israel because it is as a successful white Western outpost of civilization, making all the brown nations around it look even more like losers. How terribly unfair. Well, the Iran deal will correct that, too.
I'm sure everyone remembers the days after 9/11. That Sunday, as a grief-stricken and solemnly patriotic America flooded into their churches, Obama's reverend said this:
We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye. We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back to our own front yards. America's chickens are coming home to roost.
Imagine if the Reverend Wright and his acolyte, Obama, could have waved a magic wand and brought more of those chickens home to roost, by arming our worst enemy in the world with nuclear weapons. That would teach a lesson about Hiroshima. That would rebuke us for backing Israel instead of the savage Palestinian terrorists.
Oh, wait. Obama is now president. He doesn't need a magic wand. He just needs the Democratic Party to put partisanship over our national security and the stability of the Middle East. He just needs his loyal Democrats to avert their eyes from the certainty of a terror rampage the likes of which the world has never seen. All to avoid angering their voting base by dissing the first black president.
Senator Cruz is right when he says that by giving Iran $120 billion in sequestered funds, Obama will make himself "the world's leading financier of radical Islamic terrorism."
Given the size of Iran's economy, that would be like handing America 1.7 trillion dollars.
Obama has already handed the mullahs almost $12 billion this summer, to prove his good intentions to Iran. That's already four times our annual military aid to Israel. It is sixty times what Iran is spending annually to fund Hezb'allah, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and Syria's Bashar Assad. Just think what mayhem they can accomplish with an extra $100 billion.
Obama's answer to Senator Cruz? "This is Iran's money."
Iran's money, Iran's right to spend it on terrorism, and God damn America.
That is the "legacy" Obama has dreamed of his whole life.
