Defending the Indefensible
I’ll give Obama this much, I certainly see liberals in a whole new light because of him. Liberals aren’t interested in ending the Terror Wars, all they care about is getting one of their own in office. All liberals care about are symbols and having a Black Democratic president is a powerful symbol.
I think the belief that merely reiterating facts will effect progressive change is a fool’s errand. Facts are good but people in general are all too good at ignoring facts when they don’t line up with their beliefs. When liberals are confronted with the facts surrounding Obama’s continuing culpability in mass murder they respond with a few sympathetic noises and quickly move on to another topic putting it all down to the harsh realities of reality. “Besides,” they say, “Obama would be shot if he did the right thing.” This tells me two things. First, liberals are actually aware that Obama is a murderer but it doesn’t matter because he is a Democrat and the first Black man to be a president of the United States. Secondly, it tells me they don’t know who Obama is but then neither do the conservatives who see Obama as a Socialist and a Commie.
Obama has kept and or expanded every rapacious and murderous policy that George W. Bush introduced or expanded, and has moved this country even further to the right without so much as a whimper from the liberals. And why don’t liberals complain? Because if a Republican gets in office it will be the end of the universe of course! Amazingly, I, personally, have lived through Ike, Nixon, Ford, Reagan, two Bushes, and I have yet to see the end of the world. In fact, I’m fairly convinced that I will end before the world does. What liberals are ignoring is that all these leaders – in both major parties – have been, and are, ending the world for people even as I write this. And that’s the real problem with believing if we just leave things to the Democratic Party that this will make everything okay. It doesn’t and it won’t and it doesn’t help the people who die under the jackboot of America’s imperial wars.
The plain and simple truth about liberals is that they do not care about the slaughter that has been ongoing for nine years, possibly the longest slaughter in our slaughter-fest history. I don’t know why Republicans think Democrats are wimps. All you have to do is attack or question THE OBAMA and sit back and watch the fireworks explode. But then liberals are such super duper patriots, it’s patriotic to criticize Republicans, don’t you know? Liberals have their very own War in a Box with Afghanistan, and they love it. You know, that was Obama’s big selling point, “[T]he right war is the one in Afghanistan”, never mind that Afghanistan had nothing to do with 9/11 and al Qaida is long gone because that was all bullshit from the beginning. The Democratic Party was going to prove once and for all that they could wage war better than the Republicans and indeed war is the only promise Obama kept.
I don’t care for the Republican Party either but at least they are more honest about why we are in Afghanistan than the Democratic Leadership now residing in their rotting house of power. Here’s Dick Cheney (Darth Vader to liberals) telling us exactly why we are in Afghanistan, or pretty close to it.
[T]he oil in the Caspian basin is estimated to be worth over US $12 trillion. The sudden collapse of the USSR and subsequent opening of the region has led to an intense investment and development scramble by international oil companies. In 1998 Dick Cheney commented that "I can't think of a time when we've had a region emerge as suddenly to become as strategically significant as the Caspian."
How clear can Dick make it? See Dick, see Dick run, see Dick run and jump. What, you thought we were in Afghanistan to catch Fidel Castro? At least Dick was honest about why we are there, what is Obama’s excuse? The only conclusion I can draw so far is that liberals don’t care that people are dying so that Obama and crew can carry on their mad schemes for world domination. And it is crazy, completely crazy. Are you ready to fight a war with Russia and China over the Caspian Basin? I’m not. But that is the logical conclusion and end game for the U.S. plot of world dominion. Haven’t you ever wondered what the Russians and Chinese think when they see us playing in their back yard? Can you imagine what the United States would do if Russia invaded Mexico?
Liberals should ask themselves some questions.
Do you support the murder of millions of innocent people, the fact that millions more were wounded, that millions more were forced to flee for their lives to other lands and that this continues under Obama?
Do you support the use of torture against helpless prisoners that is likely still occurring if not in Guantanamo then in other more secret redoubts of dark design?
Do you support the domestic spying that now continues unabated?
Do you support murder? Do you, well do you? If you support Obama then you do. You can equivocate and invent the loveliest of excuses for the Sainted, and Holy, the one and only The Obama all you want but it won’t change a thing. Neither will this post come to think of it. Still, I find the position that those liberals who support Obama take indefensible. Murder is murder no matter which way you slice it.
