President Obama isn’t stupid. He says what he means to say. His comments aren’t mistakes or an inability to understand how things work. He has disdain for America and its values. He appeals to people who share his contempt for what made America a great nation.
Obama does not like the idea that individuals have the capacity, without the help of government, to build anything. This is why he could say with a straight face that “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” Who’s the “somebody else”? For Obama, it’s government.
Where does Obama’s disdain for America come from? Why are his policies designed to be destructive? Why is Obama trying to cripple the United States? He’s said that free market capitalism does not advance prosperity even though every statistic says it does. The empirical evidence is out there that controlled economies do not work. Cuba and North Korea are current examples. It wasn’t too long ago that the former Soviet Union and the walled-fantasies of East Germany were extolled as worker paradises.
Even so, Obama pushes for more government control and free spending, sucking the lifeblood out of our economy. Is he so resentful of America that he is willing to destroy it? I believe he is. He harbors a long-held animosity toward the United States. In The Roots of Obama’s Rage, Dinesh D’Souza may have hit on what drives Obama to make seemingly irrational political decisions:
The real Obama is a man shaped by experiences far different from those of most Americans; he is a much stranger, more determined, and exponentially more dangerous man than you’d ever imagined. He is not motivated by the civil rights struggles of African Americans in the 1960s — those battles leave him wholly untouched. He is not motivated by the socialist or Marxist propaganda that hypnotized a whole generation of wooly-minded academics and condescending liberals — those concepts also leave him cold.
What really motivates Barack Obama is an inherited rage — an often masked, but profound rage that comes from his African father; an anticolonialist rage against Western dominance, and most especially against the wealth and power of the very nation Barack Obama now leads.
Obama’s ideas are dangerous and destructive, and they’re meant to be that way. It’s payback against the white establishment culture.
