Is the POTUS Stirring Up a Revolution?
Obama was hailed as a healing president, promising
peace and harmony. What we have seen, however, is a president distinctively
divisive on racial issues, and instigating class warfare. His actions are a
prescription for a violent revolution.
During his campaign Obama gave the highly acclaimed
speech on race (excerpt):
“Throughout the first year of this campaign, against
all predictions to the contrary, we saw how hungry the American people were for
this message of unity. Despite the temptation to view my candidacy through a
purely racial lens, we won commanding victories in states with some of the
whitest populations in the country. In South Carolina, where the Confederate
Flag still flies, we built a powerful coalition of African Americans and white
My, how things have changed; and it didn’t take long.
Shortly after Obama took office there was Obama’s reaction to the
involving Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. and the Cambridge Police
Department: “President Obama said that police in Cambridge, Massachusetts,
‘acted stupidly’ in arresting a prominent black Harvard professor last week
after a confrontation at the man’s home.” He never should have stuck his nose
into this. And if he were going to say something, he should have understood the
situation prior to butting in. Instead, he routinely took the professor’s side,
showing his real and sincere bias, and managing to anger folks on both sides of
More recently the POTUS told a
group of Hispanics, “And if Latinos sit out the election instead of saying,
we’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends…” Punish?
Enemies? Not exactly harmonious, peace-inspiring words.
Then in his speech
before the Congressional Black Caucus he said, “I expect all of you to march
with me and press on. Take off your bedroom slippers, put on your marching
And let’s not forget the work of Eric Holder when his
Justice Department went easy in a Philadelphia voting rights case against
members of the New Black Panther Party because they are African
This is our post-racial president.
And then there’s the class warfare.
In 2008, then-candidate Obama’s remarks in his
with Charles Gibson should have been a clue. When Gibson pointed out that
recently when tax rates were increased government revenues decreased and when
tax rates decreased revenues increased, Obama replied “Well, Charlie, what I’ve
said is that I would look at raising the capital gains tax for purposes of
fairness.” He has accusingly said ad nauseam that wealthy Americans should
pay their “fair share,” which means that no matter how much they are paying,
they should pay more.
Mr. Obama’s repetitive attacks on the wealthy have led
to growing divisions between them and the less fortunate, such as the current
Occupy Wall Street protestors who
“want to see the rich pay a fair share of their profits in wages, wealth and
income in taxes…” When asked about the protestors, Obama replied: “”I think
it expresses the frustrations that the American people feel.”
Usage of words such as greed, selfish, and mean, while
always a part of the liberal description of Republicans, has escalated more in
While most pundits seem to think of this as just
another chapter in American politics, albeit somewhat intense, I’m less blasé
about it. I see this as a potential beginning of serious violence in our
streets and neighborhoods. At worst, problems could escalate to a point
requiring national action — possibly a declaration of a state of emergency with
military involvement. Is it possible we could have martial law imposed on us
around next November, and, coincidentally, have the elections postponed? Not
likely, but possible.
More certain, however, is the extended racial and
class tension that will exist for decades. While I never expected racism to go
away completely, racial harmony in this country has been gaining momentum and
is, essentially, more of a problem to the left-wing media and certain
race-baiting politicos than to folks on the ground. I’m afraid the actions of
this administration may reverse the positive course that people of all races
have worked so hard to establish. Barack Obama has done his best to delay
And class warfare? The vociferous screams from the
left have prompted normally silent, tax-paying Americans to denigrate those who
don’t pay taxes: adding their voices to the argument and elevating
I don’t generally subscribe to conspiracy theories,
and I’m not postulating such right now. However, you have to wonder, given Rahm
Emanuel’s remarks at
the beginning of Obama’s administration: “You never want a serious crisis to go
to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things you think you
could not do before.” Do what? Fully implement socialism? Create a
fascist-left country? Simply elevate the problems with our economy and
instigate tension between the people, and you have the perfect storm for such a
scenario. Even if this isn’t being done by design, it could happen
This is one reason why so many on the right believe it
is absolutely critical that we remove Mr. Obama from office in 2012. A GOP
president will certainly stir up anxiety on the left, and the cries of foul play
that existed during George Bush’s administration will resume.
Certainly a Republican will not be able to do much to
mend recent wounds. But the GOP is never as hostile in its criticism of the
left, and the dissention will slow down and possibly stop. Maybe after a few
years and if the economy improves progress in this area will again move
And yes, while there are not many high-profile,
moderate Dems, a more moderate and sensible Democrat could lessen the problem as
well. However, it is highly unlikely that any Democrat (even Hillary) will
challenge Obama for the Democratic nomination. And if one did, of course,
additional hostilities would generate from that.
Thanks to Barack Obama (with help from the media and
left-wing pundits) hostility in America is a high as I can recall, and close to
a breaking point. With regard to this situation, the 2012 election represent a
break even or lose situation. If Obama wins, we lose. If any Republican wins,
we break even.
