Obama and the ‘Lost Boys’

"One thing about living in Santa Carla I never could stomach... all the damn vampires." - Grandpa in ‘The Lost Boys”
To paraphrase the grandfather in the movie, ‘The Lost Boys’, one thing about living in America I never could stomach … all the damn Liberals! Just as in the fictional movie town of Santa Carla, so it is in the United States. There is a small, but deadly enclave of Liberals who terrorize and intimidate the peaceful law biding citizenry of our nation. The Leftist Progressive activists that haunt our country practice a perverse religion of totalitarianism and self-loathing that preaches the total aberration of America and the American way of life. Much in the way that Vampires lure and seduce innocent and trusting victims to their fate, so does the American Left attempt to lure and seduce the average American voter to the fate of socialism. Only twenty percent of Americans classify themselves as Liberal, yet this twenty percent has beguiled and manipulated the machinery of public policy and public opinion to an extent that we are no longer able to see the reflection in the mirror of an America founded on the Constitution.
I have to marvel at the similarities between Vampires and Liberals.
Just as Vampires recoil at the sign of the Cross, Liberals recoil at any mention of God and church and religion. And just as Vampires recoil from the light of day, Liberals recoil when the policies they pursue are brought into the light of day.
As with the bloodsucking, cadaver consuming characteristics of the Vampire, Liberals suck the blood of creativity and motivation out of the free market society as a means of destroying the system from within. Through the masquerade of promising Hope and Change , the modern Progressive Left promises an era of bipartisan, post-racial politics that is the Vampires promise of eternal life. It is the truth of history that the promise of eternal life is only available at the price of liberty and the promise of eternal life is a promise forever beyond the reach of mortals.
There is a great scene at the end of ‘The Lost Boys’ when the kids mom makes a conscious choice to become a Vampire. She decides it is easier to go along with the most obvious sentiment instead of fighting for herself and her family. How reminiscent of the voter who shrugs their shoulders at higher fuel taxes, higher sales taxes, higher property taxes and eventually more government control of our lives. How much easier it is to accept the smooth, well-spoken image of the Vampire rather than risk your name and your position fighting against the perceived popular tide. How much easier it is to accept the smooth, well-spoken media package of Barack Obama than risk being called a racist or a hater or even un-cool or not hip.
Easier would seem to be the common denominator here.
Easier to go along with the crowd.
Easier to not think about it.
Easier to surrender.
Edgar and Alan Frog are the ‘The Lost Boys’ outspoken yet committed Vampire hunters. Treated as a barely tolerable nuisance by a populace lulled into confused complacency by the Vampires song, the Frog brothers refuse to refute their beliefs or their faith in what they are doing. Isn’t it the irony of modern America that the anti-American theology of the radical Progressive Left is merchandised in a highly polished package of mainstream normalcy. Yet in the same fit of ironic outrage the Conservative movement, which promotes and defends ‘Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness’, is maligned as a bunch of out of touch crackpots and haters. Vampires always get good press, it seems.
The Conservative movement is fortunate to have Vampire hunters in Sarah Palin, Bobby Jindal, Jim DeMint, John Boehner and company. Just as the Frog brothers refused to give up their crusade to rid Santa Carla of the plague and terror of Vampires, so does the Conservative movement and it’s own elite league of Vampire hunters refuse to renounce our beliefs, our faith and our willingness to fight for our America. From the professional politicians to the New Media Vampire hunters of Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity, we are poised to drive the stake of truth through the corrupt heart of Liberalism.
Barack Obama was successfully packaged, marketed and sold by an evil genius team of Leftist millionaires and political deviants. George Soros, David Axelrod, Valerie Jarrett, David Plouffe and the SEIU’s Andy Stern were overwhelmingly successful in pushing forth a novice and naïve Chicago Black Liberation proponent as the embodiment of Change and Hope. Vampires should never be accused of being dumb…. or bad at marketing.
Every Vampire movie ultimately ends with the climatic stake through the heart scene. So, our current plague of Liberal Vampires will meet their fate. Ronald Reagan was the stake through the heart of a recalcitrant Seventies-era Liberal hangover and so will the next Republican President drive the stake of Conservatism through the empty soul of Liberalism. The days of the Vampires have always been numbered, as are the days of Obama and his ‘Lost Boys.’
