Whoa, andak, and take a deep breath.
This is what newsguy wrote:
We're now at an almost insane period in American history where a presidential candidate need not be patriotic, and not even pro-America.
And, as insane as it is to have someone like Obama being a front-runner for president, it's even more insane that a considerable part of the country agrees with him.
I suppose that the Obama crowd is similar to Israeli leftist Tali Fahima, who went to console the family of the Muslim terrorist who mass-murdered yeshiva students in cold blood. It's unbelievable, but people like that exist in droves both in Israel and in America.
What newsguy said about OBAMA was to call his patriotism and pro-Americanism into question, which, frankly, I question myself.
Newsguy compares to Tali Fahima the Obama "cheerleaders", who scream racism, divisiveness, and other charges against anyone who DARES to question the ABSOLUTE appropriateness of Obama as being PERFECTLY qualified to be president in spite of the paucity of his experience in anything and his mushy and vague statements.
It is at THIS point that it is newsguy who errs. Fahima was a TRAITOR, not a "leftist". She gave intelligence to Israel's enemy.
I do not agree that the far left of America, as much as I detest their hatemongering, are traitors. They are pathetic self-haters who adore their hair shirts. Obama has made their self-loathing a political platform. This does not make either Obama nor the cheerleaders traitors like Fahima. It is a long way from bashing America to betraying America. She is truly loathsome.
But this can easily turn into a slippery slope...... and it is this that really frightens me.
ANOTHER THING THAT FRIGHTENS ME IS THE RACE THING.
In the Victor Hanson article supplied by Medio:
Second, as the first African-American candidate to seriously contend for either party's nomination, Obama offers Americans a sort of collective redemption at home and admiration abroad.
When Obama's wife, Michelle, stated that she had never been proud of America until her husband ran for office, she made explicit what seems to be the campaign's implicit contract: Vote for Obama and, at last, America, you can prove you are not a racist country and finally heal centuries-old wounds.
Am I the only person on the planet to see the RACISM in this kind of reasoning?
