I was away during the party conventions, but I hear that the Democratic convention was mostly a series of dire warnings about the racism, homophobia, and misogyny which will surely descend on America if Barack Obama isn’t re-elected. Blacks would be encumbered with chains, gays would be “in the closet,” and last but not least- women would be forced to practice the rhythm method, endure back street abortions and “legitimate rape.”
Given that the Obamafied Democratic Party is a collection of victim groups, it would not be unreasonable to conclude that all future Democratic presidential nominees will have to be either black, gay, Hispanic, female or all of the above. White, heterosexual men need not apply (and certainly not “white Hispanics”), whose nomination would be proclaimed as a return to our supposedly shameful past.
Having been endorsed by the media as one of our greatest Secretaries of State, Hillary is next in line, despite having accomplished nothing more than carrying out her boss’s policy of bowing, scraping and apologizing to the world’s autocrats and thugs.
While away, I read most of our Dear Leader’s “autobiography.” Some have claimed that Bill Ayers was Obama’s ghost writer. I haven’t read Ayers’ work, but Obama’s writing is so sophomoric that I doubt he needed a ghostwriter. Anybody, after reading this book who thinks Obama isn’t a stone left-winger is delusional. Race, white racism, and European colonialism are his obsessions.
But no matter. Apparently, almost every member of our certified victim groups is willing to ignore Obama’s obvious failures and is enthusiastically buying into his campaign of resentment and envy. And even the few Americans left who do not see themselves as victims of American racism etc. still get a good jolt of self-righteousness in voting for a “victim” who nonetheless attended a posh prep school and was admitted to elite colleges and Harvard Law School through “affirmative action.” Is this a great country or what?
If Obama wins, I hope he gets a working majority in Congress. My feeling is: Let the Democrats do their worst, which will be to spend money we do not have until the whole thing collapses (See California and Europe).
As H.L. Mencken wrote: “Democracy is the theory that the people know what they want and deserve to get it good and hard.” Or as Ed Koch observed when he lost re-election as mayor of New York: “The people have made their choice and now they must be punished.”
