Did white guilt + black victimhood = Obama in '08? Will white guilt + black victimhood = Obama in '12? When Rush declared on Inauguration Day 2009, regarding the presidency of Barack Obama, "I hope he fails," the liberals went wild in a fascist mob frenzy, equating Rush's statement of affirmation essentially as a racist declaration of treason. What Rush really meant (and liberals fully understood) was that he hoped that President Obama's policies (i.e., Marxism, socialism, Keynesianism, growing the welfare state exponentially, amnesty for illegal aliens, green energy, oppressive taxes and regulations, war socialism, bowing to dictators, destroying liberty, favoring Muslims, undermining Christianity and turning the Constitution into a suicide pact) would fail.
How did America get into this catastrophe called Barack Hussein Obama whose socialist policies have given us zero jobs in August? Endemic education propaganda is the short answer. My long-view theory places the blame directly on our public school establishment's unholy alliance with socialism, unionism and secularism when the NEA was established in 1857. Two years later Darwin's evolution propaganda screed was published, "The Origin of Species," which over time was comprehensively integrated into the public school curriculum, especially science, but also in colleges, universities, law schools, graduate schools, business schools and medical schools. Later, under John Dewey's influence, education was essentially manipulated to indoctrinate students to accept as ipso facto an anti-Christian, anti-American worldview rooted in Darwinian evolution and materialism, Marxist socialism, Nietzschean atheism, relativism and Freud's perverse sexual theories.
or example, when GOP candidate Gov. Rick Perry calls Social Security a "Ponzi scheme," a "monstrous lie," and a "violent" attack on core American values, the propaganda press when ballistic – but Perry was right. I just wish more Republicans would have the guts to attack the Big Lie of any liberal policies that favor stealing money from its owners and giving it to those who didn't earn it and don't constitutionally deserve it. However, today a venerated Harvard law professor like Randall Kenned can regurgitate Rush's "I hope he fails" statement and twist it to mean the opposite of what Limbaugh meant, and most people will believe Kennedy over Rush still three years later because reason, logic and deduction have been replaced with feelings, envy and race guilt.
In November 2008, when 96 percent of my people were beguiled by Obama's black skin, slick slogans and welfare rhetoric to vote for a man who utterly despises them, whose Marxist, socialist, Keynesian economic policies traps them at 51 percent unemployment in some big cities (it was 25 percent during the Great Depression) and favors Margaret Sanger's Black Holocaust policies that aborts them at greater percentages than any other racial group, it reminded me of several columns written by Dr. Thomas Sowell as well as Dr. Shelby Steele's excellent book, "White Guilt: How Whites and Blacks Together Destroyed the Promises of the Civil Rights Era" (2006). It was white guilt and black victimhood that propelled the white vote for Obama. Rush said, "We can assuage our guilt by voting for a black candidate and proudly telling everybody we did and that sends the signal, 'We're not racist,' and they get rid of their guilt." In return Obama gives America the resurrection of the fascist FDR, the welfare state and the Great Depression, Part 2.
