Is the Fear of Obama Justified?

I keep seeing things like this from Rick Moran – a great thinker and writer who has called things straight many times – and I just wanted to comment:

But this fear of Obama has so unsettled many conservatives that any words spoken or written that don’t paint him as the devil incarnate, or damn his policies as the second coming of Karl Marx, or express the widespread view among many conservatives that he will trample the constitution, stifle all dissent, surrender to al-Qaeda, and impose socialism on us – gives the anti-intellectuals the idea that anyone who deviates from their “truths” is an Obama supporter and deserving of being cast into the outer darkness.

This is nuts.

and this:

Obama will not turn America into a Marxist state. There will be no gulags or prison camps where conservatives and Obama regime opponents will be rounded up and sent for re-education (even though there is a sizable subset of Obama supporters who would no doubt crave such treatment of righties).

Obama will not cancel future elections, initiate Soviet style restrictions on free speech (more on the Fairness Doctrine later which, btw, is hardly “a Soviet style restriction”), make us stand in line for toilet paper, or place his smiling visage on 10 story high office buildings in order to perpetrate a cult of personality (I think).

Obama will not “take away” your guns, close churches, shutter conservative newspapers, shut down Fox News, darken conservative blogs, or take any other actions that would smack of dictatorship or authoritarianism.

No actions that smack of dictatorship or authoritarianism?  Its crazy not to take these people at their word.  For example:

Fairness Doctrine – with a wave of your hand you would let the one area of conservative media that can be accessed?  The Democrats in Congress have let out notice after notice after notice that they are coming for talk radio and nothing will stop them.  There is a mention that big corporations are involved, but radio is peanuts for them, so you can simply believe they will be bought off by a Congress willing to shove yet another big pile of billions through the till.  And then what?  Encouraged by their shutdown wouldn’t they come for the internet?  Obama is already talking about appointing a National Chief Technology Officer to his cabinet and then why not nationalize the broadband carriers and enforce them.  All in the name of fairness?

Would such a thing happen all at once?  Of course not.  First they need to get the Supreme Court jiggered to ensure their outcome and the walking dead there are all liberals anyway – so it might take a while.  But why not make sure you get that Rush Limbaugh guy shut up and take your chances with the courts?  They keep saying they will.  Why are you so reluctant to believe them.

Electoral College – For years now the “antiquated and outdated” electoral college has been railed against by liberals.  They have passed laws in several states trying to get around that whole messy Constitutional Amendment requirement that should be followed if they really wish to change this fundamental part of our system – just having votes distributed based on the split of the popular vote.  However, that is only within a state and until they can get all states it doesn’t help as much.  Do you not think they would put on the pressure – and then ACORN can register lots of nice fake voters in the big cities and control every single election for the future.

Would Americans put up with it?  They are in the third full generation of public education by the unions.  Most of them don’t even really understand the Electoral College or the implications of giving the country away to those willing to cheat with its repeal – in theory or in fact.  Is this a fighting issue for anybody?  It would be pooh-poohed by the media as just a technical change to get rid of a nonsensical and undemocratic system set up by a bunch of rich white men hundreds of years ago who didn’t understand the needs of modern society.

The Democrats are actively working in every state to accomplish this by stealth.  Shouldn’t we take them at their word?  Or is that just nuts.

Voter Fraud – Today we see the beginning of a tidal wave of non-existent voters from ACORN and their allies.  Would an Obama justice system investigate any fraud related to ACORN?  They will jump right on any claim against Republicans, but if the whole voting system is stacked to such an extent that no matter how many real votes there are the Democrats come out as winners – wouldn’t that sort of be something to worry about?

Nuts?  Its happening right in front of our eyes today.

So no, I don’t think I’ll have to stand in line for toliet paper or see churches closed (I might see them stripped of their tax-exempt status).  I already see socialism being imposed on us with a Republican administration (nationalized banks, nationalized insurance companies, soon to be nationalized health care) and I oppose it.  I see Democrats in Congress holding hearings on how they can steal all private pension money in the name of “safety” – as Argentina already is moving to do.

I don’t see Obama as a devil, or a Muslim, or much more than an empty suit who can read a teleprompter.  I do see him as the lever to put in place so many things to thwart conservatives and bring forward dependance that we might eventually end up with 2, 3, maybe even 5 or so little balkanized Americas in 20 years though.

  1. Rick Moran for all his writing skills and political insight has a common connection to Noonan and her fellow highbrows. He is a closet highbrow, who sticks his head out of the closet all too often.
    If you are legitimately not a grunt you can never really understand what a grunt is or how they think.

  2. “Today we side [sic] the beginning of a tidal wave of non-existant voters from ACORN and their allies.”

    Perhaps I’m misreading this, but it sounds like when you say that you (I presume) “see” non-existant voters, what you mean is that there is evidence of “non-existant” citizens casting votes (thus making them voters), and that the number of these illegal votes is growing.

    I was under the impression that the ACORN static involved bogus names on registration forms (which ACORN is not only required to submit bogus or not, but actually highlights the suspicious names for the board of elections to deal with). That is, it involved bogus names registering . . . not voting. I’m happy to be straightened out on this, so if you can sugest some source verifying fake VOTES I’ll be happy to learn something new and become a little more informed.
    Otherwise, I don’t see where your panic is coming from. If ACORN is trying to create fake identities to generate fake votes, why do they point out the silly names to the authorities? Seems a pretty sloppy way to generate voter fraud: “hey authorities, it looks like names 7,63,and 159 are bogus.” And if nobody is actually VOTING, then what makes this not exactly what every law enforcement investigation has determined — some hired grunts either added bogus names to their tally sheets to get paid more, or didn’t check the info on people signing up for the same reason?
    You’ve got some kind of evidence I missed, please educate me. I’m serious. Otherwise, with all due respect you sound like a hysterical twit.

  3. When I was busy working as a professional engineer I personally had no time for or a real concept on how bad the real world is with much too many liars, thugs, bullies, abusers, distorters, racists , thieves, now too.. and someone how next I could not help but encountered many of them, but I had by now learned how to best deal with them. It is a two fold approach, first the Public exposure, the pen is mightier than the sword, and a good name is worth more than any silver and gold. But next also there is rightful demand, a need for their termination of employment, their real prosecution of the guilty, bad persons. Both of these approaches personally so works best, for everyone’s’ betterment. Ideally and rightfully I do not hesitate to recommend any crook, bad minister, bad pastor, bad news reporter as well to be fired , terminated from his our her job. Sadly there are many people in this world who are hatred mongers, they have a false persistent agendas against some others, and they for many wrong reasons now wrongfully pursue much of their time in these matters now too foolishly and unwisely. Too often they the bad people firstly proclaim themselves as angels of lights, good Samaritans try to help others, but rather it too often seems they are merely trying to gain an advantage over others, and to promote themselves in some powerful, key job, economic, superior positions under these false agendas, disguise’s in all kinds of social groups now too, the religious, political, cultural, governmental. Now I really hate these types of snakes and I rightfully do not hesitate to expose them once I encounter them.

    Now we all know that in north America we all do really have freedom of religion, freedom of choice, freedom of speech, the right to be hard now as well.. Some people are now falsely abusing these right to promote a false war against a particular Christian group, the Pentecostal ones, or even the Catholic ones, etc. When I see this kind of unacceptable personal behavior I too do not accept it but do loudly object to it to all and do ask these hate mongrels be immediately fired, put in jail as well. No matter who they are now too.

    “Sarah Palin losing her sway over Christian voters
    http://communities.canada.com/vancouversun/blogs/thesearch/default.aspx

    The Sarah Palin effect, which brought evangelicals and other Christians rushing on to the Republican wagon when her nomination was announced, is now fading. In some cases fast.

    A poll by the respected Pew Forum has found that some white evangelicals are losing their excitement about the political coupling of John McCain and Palin, who has deep Pentecostal roots in Alaska. White evangelicals, the crucial group that got George W. Bush into the White House in the past two elections, are beginning to edge away from the Republicans. Their support has dropped from 74 to 67 per cent in the past week or so.
    Meanwhile, pollsters are beginning to predict that mainline Protestants, who tend to be more liberal than evangelicals, are moving firmly to Barack Obama and Joe Biden. The Democrat contender is now attracting 48 per cent of mainline Christians’ votes. As well, non-Hispanic Catholics have also switched and are now leaning more to Obama-Biden than McCain-Palin.

    Thanks for your input Todd, this is the second time you posted back to me on my blog, unusual for a news reporter to comment on my blog too.http://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2008/08/30/sarah-palin-already-has-energized-conservative-religious-leaders/#comment-1746#comment-1746

    >>A poll by the respected Pew Forum has found that some white evangelicals are losing their excitement about the political coupling of John McCain and Palin

    My personal straight forward, honest, personal summation, experiences of Politics, dealing with you, the Vancouver Sun as well, and pollsters… they are statistically just liars, biased, people with hidden agendas.. and I told you that now in writing too many times too.. I rightfully have no respect for what you write still about Christians, evangelicals and so do many others now too.

    what about the polls that show 30 percent of white people will also not vote for a black persons? racisms exists in the churches and police stations now too.

    And my own experiences with Canadian liberal news media, liberals, liberal politicians are so blind they had undeniably now underestimated the starch of the all of evangelical churches, who had themselves formed the Reform, Alliance, and the new Conservative party, and next had wiped out both the old Conservatives under Brian Mulroney, and the Liberals under Jean Chrétien and Paul Martin.. I saw it coming , wrote about it 2 decades ago, but you did don’t see it coming. Do get an honest job now..

    But the fact that Sarah Palin is getting now so much free publicity attention even from the liberals, democrats it all next simply means when I see the devil breathing on her back, she must be doing something really really good

    Any possible Christian support of Obama is another liberal, democratic, news media false spins.. just like the devil often dos the same thing.. I read many of their emotional, gushy, lying, slanderous , sewage posts, opinions, but they are spins, lies and not facts and the US news media has lost loads of credibity, CNN especially the big liars, in their slanted election presentations, and that fact is not unnoticed.. but that was the same complaint thing they had often said about the Canadian News media, CBC, under the liberals who lost next.. wow!

    And basically too no true, real practicing Christian would support the clearly anti Christ Obama.. who does supports abortions, gay marriages, alcohol as well..

    My site statistics undeniably do show Sarah Palin is the most read topic in the last few months of over 100 different subjects, topics on my 6 related blogs, and that support I encounter is the tip of the iceberg only.. 80 percent of the posts read are about her.

    Even the Canadian PM Stephen Harper, and the federal election. Bilden, McCain, Obama do not get 10 percent of her attention too.. the undeniably crooked Christian Missionary alliance church got just as much attention now, 10 percent as they all did as well.. note this a new runner up in reading POPULARITY is the bad RCMP, bad Traffic cops of Alberta next.

    As I also wrote often to thousands, Canadian politicians and news editors too now.. The truth about the ungodly Pentecostals bashings, wars against the Pentecostals on the net, even by the Vancouver Sun now too, or anyone else… is that I also still do not have to accept it or put up with it still too, it is an unacceptable perversity, human rights abuse, immoral. And it better stop otherwise I too will have to write to a lot more people about it too.. very much more..
