"Professor Barack 'Che' Obama will now lecture us on..."
By Stephen Guy Hardin July, 23, 2009.
I am constantly asked about the motivations of President Obama.
Is he really that smart? Why is he pursuing a socialist agenda? Does he have a grand plan to collapse the economy? What is he really doing? Does he know what he's doing?
These questions are on everyone's minds from Rush Limbaugh to Glenn Beck to my neighbor on the other side of my fenced in backyard. Having spent a lifetime being disdainful and distrusting of politicians I always recommend that if you want to know about a politician forget the speeches and campaign promises and look at their life before politics. That is where the answers are usually found.
With the current leader of the (still) free world, Barack Hussein Obama, Junior, the questions about motivation and personality are actually very easily answered. One only has to look at his history and his hero's. Or more specifically one hero.
Like most of his fellow revolutionaries, Barack is a one track kind of guy.
Intelligent...undoubtedly. Charismatic... sometimes. Educated... by academic standards, yes. But he is still a one track, narrow minded personality who only knows the words to one song. Once you get past the sound of the music and listen to the lyrics the song doesn't really make much sense, similar to any Elton John song from the '70's.
In many, many (many ) respects Barack is the conscious reincarnation of his childhood and college days hero, Che Guevara. Except Barack lacks the intestinal fortitude for actual physical combat that Che displayed in Cuba, the Congo and Bolivia. Like his foster parent, the Reverend Wright, Barack preferred his battles on the streets of the South Side of Chicago when the news crews were filming and his nights spent up in the cushier and safer confines of Chicago's Gold Coast raising money for his next political campaign.
Che Guevara, unlike his sometime bed-partner and fellow drag queen Fidel Castro, was a pedantic, rigid , Marxist puritan, who preferred confrontation over compromise and was totally and completely unable to tolerate any disagreement with his divinely inspired viewpoints. Che's way of dealing with political or cultural descent involved a firing squad and the command , "Fuego!", which I'm sure would suit our current President just as well.
The rigid dedication to his doctrines and beliefs in the universal truth of socialism is the hallmark of any typical leftist college professor who hasn't spent a day in his life lifting more than a textbook or a glass of wine at a college fundraiser at Occidental College or Columbia University. Everything Barack eats, sleeps and breathes is classroom rhetoric which never made it past the reality of the core requirement of freshman, "Political Philosophy 101." And like all professors in the self-contained empires that are their classrooms, he is accustomed to not having anyone disagree with the moral certitude of his viewpoint on all things pertaining to social justice, blah, blah, blah.
So, now we have Professor Barack 'Che' Obama giving the real working classes of America classroom lectures about the merits of national socialism and the evils of free market capitalism. I feel like I'm time warping back to the early '80's. Any moment I expect to hear Boy George and the Culture Club strike up "Karma Chameleon" or "Church of the Poison Mind." Yikes!
As history proved almost 40 years ago, Che's brand of ideologically rigid, Maoist-inspired socialism failed miserably when applied to the real world of the Congo and Bolivia as well as the reality of post-revolution Cuba. It was the leadership and political ability of Castro that created and evolved the revolution in Cuba into a permanent dictatorship instead of a utopian workers paradise that Che fantasized about.
For all the poetic innovations for class struggle and class warfare Che Guevara preached, in the final analysis his politics of puritanical Marxism failed in the same way that President Obamas politics of puritanical socialism will fail. Americans don't take well to being lectured by the elite, especially by men who only know how to run a classroom and recite someone else's words off a teleprompter.
One Che Guevara is enough. We certainly don't need Professor Barack 'Che' Obama scolding us for not doing our homework assignment or not paying attention during his lectures about the evils of America. Class dismissed.
