Mandatory Reading — "Obama the Closer"

This piece from Kyle-Anne Shiver in today's NRO is a must-read. yes, I know that you guys are sick of hearing me refer to b-HO as a socialist nightmare, but it is critically important that all of us understand that this election is not business as usual. There are a lot of people out there who want to cast their vote for Bob Barr, who is, indeed, one of us. For this I fall back on the wisdom of veteran blogger Kim du Toit, who said, "I love America more than I hate McCain." Here's a couple of excerpts from the NRO story:
Obama’s young worshippers think they see something altogether new, a unique persona, seemingly magically transported to this moment in history to help them finally be the ones to net the elusive butterfly of socialism’s never-realized promise.

The kids think they see something new. But do they?

Sixties’ radicals see their as yet unfulfilled yearning for socialist utopia in a well-groomed, glittery, establishment-approved package.

The college kids today, flocking to Obama rallies, don’t look much like we did, with our tie-dyed shirts and frayed bellbottoms, our waist-length hair or wild Afros. And they seem to see Obama as the antithesis of 60s’ madness, with a been-there-done-that-want-something-new kind of thirst, a quest for which youth has always been known.

Obama is clean-cut. He talks unity, not subversion. He promises equal outcomes without resorting to violence to get them. He endorses marriage and fidelity for himself, without condeming other lifestyle choices. He speaks in highbrow English, rather than the 60s revolutionary slogans:

Kill the Pigs
Smash Monogamy
Violence is as American as cherry pie
If America don’t come around, we’re gonna burn it down

Obama’s followers make high-tech videos, mindlessly chanting, “Yes, we can” instead of making bombs to blow up government buildings, or holding up armored trucks and killing police officers.

This new generation seems to have the opportunity to do now with mere votes what their predecessors tried and failed to do through violence. We can finally seal the deal on the real revolution — democratically. Obama, the Closer, is at hand.

Evidenced by his list of supporters, from Ayers Dohrn, Hayden and Fonda, to the New Black Panthers, the New SDS, the New Winter Soldiers, et al., the radical Left has annointed Obama as the One. Every aging, anti-war, anti-capitalist group and their new offshoots are flocking around Obama like moths to a flame.

He is the One they’ve been waiting for. Biding their time during the dark, dreary days of Reagan, throughout the self-absorbed Boomer years, into the Yuppie sellout decade, and on through the compromising Clinton years, they’ve waited and planned and hoped.

To these rabid Marxist radicals, Obama is the One, because he’s probably their last chance to see socialism triumph on our own soil. They have grasped the reality of their own mortality.

And this could be very bad news for America. Who, in his right mind, really wants anything these radicals were peddling?

I swear i makes me think of a scene from the final battle in one of the Chronicles of Narnia books I read as a kid where the Witch returns and all the dark creatures re-emerge hoping for a final victory.

I keep thinking of the line from 1984. "We all come to love Big Brother in the end, Winston."

We might get by with one more election cycle holding our nose and voting for the lesser of two evils, but if you've read the latest critique of the party by GOP Representative Davis...26 pages of why the GOP is in trouble, and not one single word about protecting the Second Amendment. When you're being taken for granted, it's way past time to be moving on to bolstering a third party candidate to win the election.
