The Liberal Vision of America: Still Shocking After All These Years.
A note from Radarsite: You would think that after having been writing about this election and about the liberal's view of America for so long that I would be used to it by now. But I'm not. I'm still capable of shock. Still capable of disbelief and outrage. The video below was taken from a relatively new liberal website. I will not do them the service of naming them. This certainly isn't the most despicable video I've ever seen -- after all, I've watched the Berg beheading video from beginning to end. But somehow this one's worse. The Berg beheading video was presumably made by our sworn enemies in this Islamic war against the West. It was made by our enemies to bolster their strength and to intimidate their enemies. It is horrific and it is supposed to be horrific.
But this video, this well-made video, with all the bells and whistles, wasn't made by al Qaeda, or even by some anti-Americanist foreigners. It was evidently made by Americans for Americans. It was proudly presented as a pro-American statement. This, they are saying, is what's wrong with America. This is why Americans should be ashamed to wake up in the morning. This is why we must elect an Obama. To send the message to the world that we recognize our monumental guilt and that we want to make amends.
I am still incapable of comprehending how an American born and brought up in America could see America this way, could hate America this much. They justify their treachery by claiming that they are separating out Bush and Cheney and Haliburton and the war in Iraq from America itself -- a little like saying that they are against the war but support the troops. Or perhaps a little bit like saying, they love their parents but that their parents are murderers and thieves.
Has our leftist anti-Americanist post hippie academia really succeeded this well? Have they really indoctrinated this hate-filled self-loathing generation of Americans this thoroughly? And the answer it seems must be, Yes.
Why is this still such a shock to me? Why is it still a shock to me that so many Americans could be so wrong? So inexplicably wrong about the nation that nurtured and protected them and saved them from the miseries that confront so many wretched peoples of this world? What other country should we be more like? Where would they have rather been born?
I know, it's useless. It's futile to argue with them. They are convinced. They have seen the light. This is why they are proudly producing videos such as this one. This is why they will be proudly voting for Obama. And, to be truthful, somehow, down deep inside, we know that it is we who are ultimately to blame for this travesty of truth. Somehow we allowed this to happen. Were we just not paying attention? Were we just too busy to see what are children were learning? Were we just watching too much TV?
If in one more week Barack Hussein Obama wins the Presidency of the United States the people who made this video we feel vindicated. They will have won, and their despicable vision of America will prevail. And then God Save America. -rg
