What Do You Think Is Going On?…Part 1

“… the community organizer … must first rub raw the resentments of the people; fan the latent hostilities to the point of overt expression.’
— Saul Alinsky,
Rules for Radicals

Heather Higgins has an excellent column titled “Obama’s Schadenfreude” on Town Hall at this link.  I encourage everyone to read it.  I had to look up the word schadenfreude…it means “enjoyment derived from the misfortune of others”.

In her column, Ms. Higgins references a rather dismissive remark the president made concerning Rick Santelli, a derivatives trader on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange.  (Rule #5 in Rules for Radicals… Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.) She makes the point that our new president has no business or investment experience and that his world of work has only consisted of venues where money flows in from government and other grant sources. (He still works in that environment.)  She calls it his “redistributionist world”.  It can  not create any wealth, and, since it receives money to operate from those who actually have jobs , it only has a fixed “pie” with slices taken from those who have and then are given to those who have not. So if you or I existed for years only in that type of non-earning system, what do you think our policies would be?

To thinking Americans, it is not possible to believe that a man who spent untold amounts of time in Hawaii with known Communist, Frank Marshall Davis (who may turn out to be a close relative…we’ll keep watching), came away with a vast understanding of the free market system.  President Obama’s own grandparents and mother were very socialist in their beliefs also.  It is not possible to believe that a man who chose to be friends with Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dorne, both radicals and former terrorist bombers,  could be a free market capitalist.  It is not possible that a man who chose to sit  in a “church” for 20 years listening to racist Liberation Theology could walk away believing in old fashioned American values.  It is not possible that someone who was  a member of the most far left-leaning groups such as ACORN, and the New Party (socialist party in IL) and palled around with all of these far left people is not a far left socialist and Marxist.  I have said it before and I repeat…Birds of a feather flock together.  My grandmother taught me that.

So consequently, I’m not at all surprised at the policy that ‘s been coming from our new president.  He does indeed intend to turn our American system upside down.  Fox News counted how many times he used the word “crisis” in one speech last week….26 times, I believe it was.  Was he trying to tell us something?  (Rule #8. Keep the pressure on with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose.) Do you think this one is going on?

Ms. Higgins also remarks that ACORN, that corrupt organization that just won’t go away and now has the gods smiling and raining $$ down on them from the love of our  new president and, utilizing lots of tax dollars from the stimul-less package, are now going to sponsor sit-ins at homes marked for foreclosure.  Yes, that’s right, ACORN, the group who helped elect Mr. Obama, using any corrupt means they could think of.  Instead of using that money to maybe help those people themselves,  they are going to hold protests and sit-ins against those bad, bad, free market capitalist banks who are trying to recover their property. Things truly are upside down!

I submit to you these questions: Are the resentments of the people being rubbed raw?  Are latent hostilities being fanned?

I do not want to overwhelm the reader with all of the information that is coming, so I will be writing this in sections, so that you may have time to digest it and read from other sources.  Stay tuned for Part 2…there is much more. Tomorrow I will be posting information about radical Saul Alinsky and his connections to the President.

  1. Hello Mr. Kaleokualoha, thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment. To answer your question, I believe the Bush administration authorized a $700 billion bailout for the credit markets. However, my post is discussing the associations (friends), policies, and views of the current president.

  2. Kathy,

    EXCELLENT post! This is so well-written and gives so much information. I’m looking forward to part 2. I knew most of these things but you have put them all together so well.

    And yes, the Bush admin did authorize that first bailout, on the advice of others. And this is one reason that the Republican party has suffered, because it is perceived that they drifted away from fiscal conservatism, as evidenced by some of Pres. Bush’s policies. However, I was not sitting in his office with him and don’t know what was going on to make him believe that he needed to authorize those billions of dollars. I do remember him saying later that he had sacrificed free market priniciples to save the free market.

    Great post!
