The following is my slightly edited excerpt from:
Obama’s “Leadership” Style is Classic Liberalism:
No Vision + Utter Incompetence = Total Failure
By Kelly O’Connell – July 31, 2011
Read the whole thing for yourself here:
The links he provides are well worth following. It’s a lot of material, but a quick education in the history of how and where Marxism has been tried out for real and how spectacularly it has failed in each and every case.
H/t to Pistol Pete’s Grudge Report for steering me in this direction.
Barack Obama’s childish failure as president is not only predictable but utterly inevitable given his ideology
Modern Liberalism – aka, Socialism — has literally no track record of success.
Typical leftist leadership is a study in falling productivity, hypocritical speechifying, inane and counter-productive government programs, and human rights disasters.
It is almost a rule of thumb that those who rise to the top of socialist regimes are the most unfit to lead. Further, most have been murderous psychopaths. Marxist regimes slaughtered between 150-200 million innocent souls in the 20th century.
What kind of a person ADMIRES this kind of government?
How about the New York Times that covered up Josef Stalin’s forced famine in the Ukraine?
How about Noam Chomsky who denies Pol Pot’s atrocities in Cambodia ever happened?
How about Shirley MacLaine who deified Mao at the height of the Cultural Revolution?
How about Norman Mailer who made a pilgrimage to Cuba?
How about Sean Penn who has circled the globe to support Iraqi terrorists, the mullahs of Iran and Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez?
Can we say Barack Obama is a follower of Marx? Here are the basic tenets Marx outlined in his writings.
- The rich have more than the poor only because they steal their money from the lower classes.
- It is up to great humanists to help the poor get their rightful portion.
- In doing this through government confiscation and wealth redistribution, justice will be restored and a paradise on earth created.
Modern Liberalism (aka, Leftism) is nothing more nor less than Socialist-Communism dressed up in sheep’s clothing. And there is no mystery why it never has and never can achieve any success.
The reasons are transparent.
First, the entire theory opposes and denies human nature. So, for example, communism assumes that if Marxist leaders grimly instruct the people that they must work, irrespective of pay, and support others irrespective of other people’s output; people will cooperate. But they never do.
Second, no detailed theory was ever proposed by Marx to replace the elements of capitalism. So socialism always tends towards chaos from lack of a working model.
Third, in Marxism’s rejection of religion, the politicians and the state itself, are made into default gods. This explains the massive cults of personality. But the rejection of a Ten Commandments means mere humanistic standards (like expediency and Might Makes Right) take the place of divine rules. Not coincidentally, mass murder has been typical in Marxist countries.
And, fourth, since Marxist beliefs are essentially religious in nature, no evidence can disprove them, and therefore nothing ever changes—no lessons ever learned. So, for example, a Great Leap Forward is always inevitably followed by a Cultural Revolution.
Is Obama a Marxist? By his fruits we shall know him. More of his character, shortcomings, screwups and statements can be understood and explained by Leftist ideology than by anything else. Therefore, yes, it is safe to say that Barack Obama is a doctrinaire Marxist.
We must accept this and gird our loins to respond, or risk suffering the collapse or coup of the greatest country ever known to mankind.
My fellow patriotic Americans, there is now no more room for error or time to avoid the obvious conclusion.
