LOS ANGELES, October 4, 2011—Angry, leftist mobs are in the streets of America. They are invading Wall Street in New York and participating in flash mobs from Chicago to Philadelphia.
This is the legacy of Barack Obama. It is happening on his watch.
Barack Obama constantly wails about what he inherited from George W. Bush. He inherited 300 million people who chanted “USA, USA” when President Bush stood with a bullhorn next to a firefighter and rallied the world to his side.
That unity would fray as the war in Iraq dragged on, but the American dream still crossed the ideological spectrum. Once Barack Obama took over, he declared war on anybody who disagreed with his ideological tunnel vision.
In Barack Obama’s world, it is perfectly reasonable to blame “Wall Street,” “millionaires and billionaires,” “hedge fund managers,” “yacht owners,” and others known for being “wealthy” for all that ails America.
In the real world, attacking job producers does not make sense. Crippling businesses defies logic. Hating those who give the most to charity boggles the mind.
While Barack Obama did not order people to storm Manhattan, he did not need to do so with a directive. Every speech and policy decision is an implicit call to arms.
In Barack Obama’s world, “fairness” matters above all else.
In the real world, liberty matters more than fairness. Justice is a function of freedom, not equality.
Barack Obama did not need to order young people to steal stuff from stores in the inner cities. He just needed to rage on about the haves and the have nots until the young impressionable people who worshiped him acted.
in 2007, Barack Obama was all about hope.
In 2011, Barack Obama spreads a message of hopelessness, and blames his political opponents for causing that despair.
Liberals can continue to make excuses for Barack Obama, but Americans were not rioting in the street when George W. Bush was in charge. Freedom of speech still existed, but even Moveon.org and the Daily Kos kept their violence at the verbal level. Even the Huffington Post kept their worst haters behind keyboards and away from actual weapons.
Barack Obama piously declared that America needed a new “civility” after Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot. His words were appropriate, but hollow. He weighs in on subjects that are none of his business when he has none of the facts and then stays silent when moral leadership is required.
This is how he can blame a white police officer for racism when an elitist Harvard professor who happens to be black gets properly arrested.
This is how he can have a black agricultural employee fired rather than learn what she actually said.
This is how he can also stay silent as inner cities burn while hooligans steal. The liberal black Mayor of Philadelphia institutes a curfew after giving a fiery speech about pulling up pants and acting civilized, and the current president remains absent.
This is how he can stay silent as mobs protest Wall Street, as if these young thugs are suffering their lot in life because of anything anyone on Wall Street ever did.
This is how President Obama can allow Eric Holder to turn a blind eye when Malik Shabazz and his New Black Panther thugs harass white voters at polling stations solely for being white.
Barack Obama has divided Americans. He has pitted people against each other, white against black, rich against poor, liberal against conservative. He demonizes people for disagreeing with him and then blames them for every impasse.
He attacks ordinary citizens, such as Tea Party attendees. He attacks conservative activists solely for participating in the political process while maintaining different views from him.
He gives speeches on everything that fits into his narrow ideological agenda, but refuses to condemn criminal behavior by anybody that makes up his governing coalition.
Yes, it makes perfect sense to steal a pair of jeans or a television set from a store because the owner happens to be rich, white, conservative, or all of the above. It makes complete sense to throw a brick through a window to steal electronic game systems when one is taught that it is unfair that the store should have so much while the thief has so little.
It is absolutely normal as a private citizen to try and destroy Wall Street when the leader of the free world verbally rips Wall Street to shreds on a weekly basis.
Wall Street has nothing to do with the flash mobs in Chicago and Philadelphia. It has nothing to do with the protests in New York. Conservative Republican capitalists had nothing to do with the tragedy in Arizona or the financial destruction in California.
Liberal policies have destroyed lives, wrecked dreams, crushed souls, and failed everywhere they have ever been tried. Those wanting to see how liberalism takes innocent people and rips their hearts and guts out should spend some time in Detroit.
Barack Obama could have been a hero to Detroit and every other failed inner city. He could have gone to schools and introduced the students to careers as investment bankers, stockbrokers, venture capitalists, and yes, hedge fund managers. He knows these people. He took plenty of their campaign cash in 2008 and will again.
Instead he chose to demonize working professionals as “them,” to be overthrown by “us.”
He could make an effort to stop the chaos by telling the protesters and the flash mobs to stop. Even if they ignore him, he could still say something.
His silence speaks volumes.
This is how we went from a George W. Bush world where Americans fought Islamofascist terrorists to a Barack Obama world where we allow our own leftist youth to try to forcibly bring about the ruin of the American capitalist system.
Welcome to Obamaworld. If life is unfair, just find somebody with more and forcibly steal it. Society will burn, but at least there will be “fairness.”
