A couple of things came into the realm of public discussion over the last week that were almost providential in their timing: statements by former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani addressing President Barack Obama’s sentiments toward America and a series of assertions referencing Islam made by Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson.
Last week during a private GOP dinner event, Giuliani reportedly stated that he didn’t believe President Obama loves America. This resulted in criticism of the former mayor and, of course, a few charges of racism, but it also initiated a wide discussion of what Obama’s sentiments toward this country actually might be.
Last weekend, Johnson told “Fox News Sunday” that President Obama’s decision not to refer to atrocities committed by the ISIS (ISIL, Islamic State) terror group as demonstrating a form of “radical Islam” (instead using the term “violent extremism” to describe such actions) was due to the entreaties of some in the Muslim community. This would tend to suggest that Obama was either weak or inordinately sympathetic to our enemies.
Later in the week at Obama’s dubious Countering Violent Extremism summit, Johnson asserted that it was part of the administration’s job to “give voice to the plight of Muslims and the discrimination that they face.”
Regarding Obama’s choice of words referencing Islamist terrorism, Johnson said on Sunday: “The thing I hear from leaders in the Muslim community in this country is ‘ISIL is attempting to hijack my religion.'” Johnson added that Muslim leaders argue Islam is about peace and brotherhood, and resent ISIS sullying that image.
Anyone who has been paying attention (or reading this column for any length of time) is aware that the indignation of Muslim leaders in this area is part of the Islamic doctrine of taqiyya. This refers to using deception (lying) to infidels to advance the cause of Islam, and it has been practiced for centuries.
So, the claims of Muslim leaders that terror groups are hijacking their religion is a deception of which Jeh Johnson is either ignorant or actively promoting at the behest of our president, who is most assuredly dedicated to Islamist ascendency.
Now, let us address Jeh Johnson’s claim of discrimination that Muslims in America supposedly face. In addition to being a false premise (or blatant misrepresentation) in the context of civil rights vis-à-vis ethnic and religious minorities’ struggles in America, it is yet another deception. This deception is calculated to buy time and, of course, to compromise our defenses. Islamist clerics, leaders and pundits quite often claim oppression and discrimination as they proffer arguments of Islam being about peace and brotherhood; however, when put off balance in a discussion (which is surprisingly easy to do), they lose their composure and begin to rail about the supremacy of Islam and the destruction of Israel and America. I have seen this passive-aggressive drama played out countless times.
While politicos, pundits and the man in the street agonize over why Obama refuses to identify Islamic terrorism as such, or if he loves America or not, the answer is hiding in plain sight. It is the dirty little secret that was kept so well from the American people, the one that would have precluded Barack Hussein Obama ever being elected president of the United States of America.
It is also the reason Obama’s critics employ terms such as “incompetent” and “clueless” to describe his policies, instead of “sabotage” and “treason.”
The secret is that Obama and nearly all in his employ despise America and the entire model of Western society. This includes democratic republicanism, capitalism, as well as Judeo-Christian principles and values. A large measure of their antipathy is also due to the fact that they consider this paradigm an Anglo-European (white) paradigm.
Obama and his ilk are an amalgam of radicals in the ’60s mold, whether Marxist-Leninists, Maoists, Structural Marxists, black and Latino nationalists, Marxist feminists, Nation of Islam, or Sunni Muslim Islamists. All of these groups are intensely hateful, and all embrace the short historical worldview that the Evil Old White Man (those of northern European descent) has been exploiting nonwhites for centuries, it is time for this to come to an end, and it is their mission – nay, their destiny – to bring this end about.
They view America as the white man’s “signature creation” – so, of course, America has to go.
The sentiments of a Barack Obama (or an Eric Holder, Van Jones, etc.), therefore, will always lie with the Islamists, who they perceive as having been exploited and oppressed by the Anglo-European capitalist colonialist Judeo-Christian leviathan. Their sentiments will always lie with the urban black street thug rather than their law-abiding white victim, because it is the white victim who is in part responsible for the black thug’s pain.
In their worldview, all Americans – most especially those of northern European descent – share in the blame for years of America’s dominance on the world stage and must be made to submit collective restitution in one form or another for the crimes perpetrated on their behalf by their government, corporations and the military.
Obama’s use of terms such as “grievances” and “resentments” to describe the conditions and attitudes of people in countries that incubate terrorism is indicative of this Marxist-based victimology. In so doing, what Obama intimates is that these conditions and attitudes were ultimately brought about by the oppression and economic exploitation of said nations by the West over the last century or so. We’re the reason their lot in life sucks, and so we are obligated to do something about it – thus the administration’s references to jobs and economic investment.
Offering social reforms to combat terrorism, as Obama did at the summit, is not only patently insane, but shows how deeply entrenched he is in this paradigm, whether he honestly believes that jobs programs will stultify the proliferation of terrorism, or he is just using this line of reasoning as a deception for the gullible.
