An Obama Defender Speaks

An Obama Defender Speaks

The following are comments that I revieved on my blog from a reader who defended President Obama against my previous post and also Obama’s many critics..

I am a Jeffersonian Conservative and as such recoil in horror at what Obama is doing to America and the devious ways he is going about its transformation to socialism with a near dictatorial leviathan central government.

I would like to assure the writer that my upset has nothing to do with the race of our Traitor In Chief. I doubt that I would be belived, however.

I will say again, as I have many times before on my blog. I am a behaviorist. I have learned over the past 50 years to watch what people do, not just what they say.

If what a person says is in strong conflict with what they do, I will focus upon their behavior and that will inform me of their motivation and intended outcomes.

With this said, you may not be surprised that I respectfully disagree with virtually everything this writer has said.

Why don’t you let me know what you think?!

VTM, 6/15/14

The following is a quote of a commentator to my blog.


Day by day, What is Really obvious is the hatred for the black man in the White House. This Limbaugh is as racist as his brothers, as well as his followers!

Obama is obviously center-right, calling him “evil” shows how stupid and unreasonably hateful this network is.

” This is not just to make you feel sorry for me, but to demonstrate just how dense the network of lies spread by the right wing really is.

“1. What is Obama’s dream? Transform the U.S. to what? Obama doesn’t have a dream to destroy America and make her disappear, but rather to enslave, control, and manipulate the people and all our assets.

2. All those who resist his agenda will be destroyed.

3. His stated views written and spoken for his whole “fake out” career have been to be the leader of an international movement and control the entire world with international laws.

4. Step one is to seize and redistribute all wealth,

5. make America a mass of amorality,

6. and crush real morality inspired by the God of the Holy Bible.

7. Obama is a radical Communist

8. /Islamist

9. and has always hated what the real America represents.

10. Christians, conservatives, and patriots must go,

11. so must her spirit and real history of greatness.

12. Obama intends to make this transformation happen through clear and thought-out methodology.

13. He has never just had a dream or philosophy he operates from, but detailed plans

14. and international Islamic support.

15. He has always mysteriously had billions of dollars in backing.

16. It is most clear that Obama, from birth, was the chosen destroyer of America.

17. Believe what you want, but the large sea of facts support this,

18. from the massive millions spent to hide all Obama’s documents –

19. falsifying his birth records,

20. use of false social security cards,

21. and hiding college records. Think about it a second. Have you ever heard of any U.S. president ever

22. spending millions to hide every detail of his life from the people?

23. We see Obama organizing and enforcing a tectonic shift through the Islamic lead caliphate,

24. Obama is a traitor.

25. We have watched Obama side with Islamic dictator after dictator – exposing again and again his real faith in Allah and Muhammad, not the Holy Bible and Jesus Christ.

26. Think of the endless amount of corrupt and criminal dictators and terrorist groups he has boldly backed – Zelaya, Morsi, giving aid, and comfort to the Taliban,

27. employing Muslim Brotherhood members through out his staff on and on it goes.

28. He always sides against the Christians and Jews and for Islamic radicals.

29. Scandals of destruction and corruption collect around Obama like snowflakes in a snowstorm.

30. Now, we get to wade through his complete violation and betrayal of our vets with the Veterans Administration horror show

31. and his illegal exchange of five top ranking Taliban commanders

32. for a known Islamic radical and deserter.

33. Naturally, Obama committed another crime by bypassing Congress and not giving them 30 days to respond. Now, we shall see if Congress has already been bought and paid for or will stand for the law and the people.

34. This latest crime of Obama is serious enough that if Congress will act, Obama could be facing huge prison time.

So, what is it to be, people…tyranny and control or freedom and achievement?

35.Obama has already decided, but what will Congress, the 2014 and 2016 elections, and the people decide?”

Thirty five lies in one post- every single one of them without a shred of evidence, or even minimal credibility. And yet these thirty five lies are repeated over and over again by right wingers all over the country, with utter lack of concern that they are all (as most right wingers must know inside) completely false. They all add up to a narrative described briefly by Andrew Sullivan, after watching Fox News for an evening:

This has nothing to do with the actual Obama at all. It’s more like a preliminary character sketch of Ming the Merciless.

“Here’s the gist: the president is a lawless dictator, abetting America’s Islamist foes around the world, releasing Taliban prisoners to aid in his own jihad on America, fomenting a new caliphate in Iraq, and encouraging children to rush the Mexican border to up his vote-count, while effectively leaving those borders open to achieve his “fundamental transformation of America.”

And how could it be possible to write anything short of a textbook disproving this barrage of falsehoods? We would spend our lives rebutting claims that everyone knows to be totally false, destroying any hope we might have of dealing with real issues. And make no mistake about it- the people who are paid to churn this stuff out day after day know perfectly well that they are nothing but paid liars, but they just don’t care. And the people who buy these smears and distortions are too lazy, too filled with hatred and rage by the purveyors of this garbage, and in most cases, too stupid and ignorant to know the difference. So, the country slides down the slope into disaster, while we stand helpless and watch.

Just as they’ve built up the heroic model of Ronald Reagan which has little to do with Reagan’s actual Presidency, they’re fighting an evil supervillain they’ve created in their own heads.

As I’ve said before, it certainly has nothing to do with Obama. It is all about trying to erase the shame of the true worst President in history, their guy Bush, by crafting this preposterous narrative in which Obama is worse. It’s interesting that, in order to accomplish that feat, they virtually have to identify Obama with Satan
