Obama: "You lie!"
Our jaw-dropping President Obama has once again re-written history in a public forum, this time creating a utterly fantasized history of Islam in the U.S. to curry favor with Muslims. This editorial in the Washington Times fisks his recent Ramadan speech and echoes my own reaction: that's bullshit--what the hell is he talking about?
Does your average American yet understand how much this President lies? Or why? Obama does not just tell little white lies the way ordinary politicians do, to try to make potential supporters, donors, or voters feel all warm and tingly. Obama baldly rewrites history without blinking an eyelash. Why would he do this sick routine, in front of God and country? Is he counting on Americans to be so poorly educated or inattentive that they will not be able to even notice? Is he counting on Americans being so polite, deferential, or so stupid that they will accept everything he says, no matter how outrageously untrue it is?
Here's what I think is going on. Obama is not just verity-challenged. He is now the figurehead in the U.S. of the crowd set in motion years back by 'the Communist system,' talked about by ex-KGB member Uri Bezmenov, in this 1985 interview, after he had defected to the U.S. (here is Part 2 of the brief interview). If you have no time to watch any other videos today, please make time to watch these. Bezmenov is not the first or the only such person to say such things with authority, but he is concise. It is good to know what we're up against. This is not playacting, and incredible as it seems to contemplate, it is no joke.
Isn't it convenient how taqiyya and Communist subversion seem to have so many things in common? Just like the Muslim Brotherhood and the Nazis did. Wouldn't it have been interesting if Obama had talked about that at the Ramadan dinner?
These links today come from a powerful essay by Victor Davis Hanson, well worth reading, and from the trenchant comments that follow. Fortunately we can see that not everyone is uneducated or unengaged in this country. Many Americans are doing all they can to enlighten the unenlightened to the dangers we face, and to fight for the life of their country. Patriotism is not dead.
Looking back: "You lie!" Joe Wilson was rude, but right. How right he was! In dire times, against such enemies, polite reticence is no longer a primary virtue.
