"America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality, and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within."

Enough with the Birther Business

Will Malven

Now that we’ve seen the infamous Long Form Birth Certificate, it’s time to move on.  I was willing to play the “what if” game as long as their remained a reasonable doubt—and taking two and a half year to do what was but a moments effort is justification for having reasonable doubt about Obama’s “natural born” status.

But that is all over now.  The birth certificate has been produced, it has all the right information and, except for a few die-hard fringe conspiracy nuts, the question is finally and beyond any doubt over.  Time to move on.

There is plenty enough about President Obama for one to be dissatisfied without resorting to beating the dead horse of the birther movement.  Obama is alien, but his alienage is not because of his place of birth, but from how he was raised and with whom he was raised.

Judging from President Obama’s speeches, agenda, and policies, any newly minted American citizen has a better understanding of American culture and society, and a better grasp of American exceptionalism than he.  It appears that growing up dirt poor in a third world nation provides one with a better comprehension of “The American Dream,” than being born with a silver government teat in one’s mouth.

In Obama’s world, it’s “The American Dream” versus “Dreams from My Father.”

One would think that, having been the beneficiary of so much generosity from our government and from those more fortunate than he, Obama would be grateful for what he has received, but instead of gratitude, we get resentment, anger and disdain for all that has made America the great nation it is (and remains—in spite of his best efforts).

Clearly, being forced to work hard and compete for the privilege of becoming an American citizen engenders far greater appreciation for the privileges that accompany that treasured status than does being handed it by birth.

Obama’s contempt for America and our Constitution is a matter of record.  His description of our Constitution as “a charter of negative rights,” tells one all he needs to know about Obama’s opinion.  His public statements about redistributing wealth, the unfairness of our system, the bitterness of small town Americans who “cling to their religion and their guns,” speak far more eloquently of his true feelings than any of his myriad of teleprompter driven speeches.

His choice of which churches he has chosen to attend is also informative of his opinion of his native nation.  Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s Trinity United Church, in which black liberation theology and a constant stream of anti-American rhetoric is standard fare, was his chosen place of worship for over two decades. 

Whereas Christ’s message was about unity, love of one’s fellow man, and tolerance, this Easter President Obama chose to celebrate by attending Shiloh Baptist Church where Dr. Wallace Charles Smith’s Easter message was good old down home racism, envy, and hatred of others—as practiced by the African American community.

“. . . now, Jim Crow wears pinstripes.  Goes to law school and carries fancy briefs and cases. And now Jim Crow has become James Crow Esquire, and he doesn’t have to wear white robes anymore, because now he can wear the protective cover of talk radio or can get a regular news program on Fox.  Doesn’t have to wear his white garments anymore . . .

We [sic] don’t have to wear white robes anymore, because the racism and the vitriol has taken on a politeness and even such venerable saints as Rush Limbaugh know the lines they’re not to cross.  But any of their constituents that can hear clear the same vile filth spewing forth in their statements that was once the purview of Robert Shelton and members of the Ku Klux Klan and the White Citizens Council.  The problem is not solved yet.”

Wow!  . . . and Obama calls us bitter.  If this was the “just world,” Obama claims to desire, Dr. Smith (wasn’t he the villain in “Lost in Space?”) would be brought up in a civil court and made to give examples of where Rush Limbaugh has “spewed forth the vile filth” similar to what one would have heard from members of the DEMOCRAT members of the Ku Klux Klan and punished when he proved unable to substantiate his allegations—which he couldn’t.

A man is known by the company he keeps.  President Obama keeps company with those who least embrace the promise of America.  He keeps company with those who least characterize the all encompassing, all embracing message of our Statue of Liberty.

President Reagan, among others, spoke of America as that shining city on the hill.  He spoke of America as a beacon of freedom around the world and as a land of infinite opportunity where anyone willing to put forward the effort and take the risk could succeed and where one’s prosperity was limited solely by his vision.

President Obama speaks of injustice, inequality, and a land where government chooses who will succeed and just how prosperous anyone can be.

Where Reagan saw a land of limitless possibilities, Obama sees a land of limited opportunity and shared misery—and he has been working hard to bring his vision to fruition.

Whereas President Reagan—and most of our other President’s—have been filled with optimism and gratitude, President Obama, in spite of his privileged status and being granted by the American electorate the opportunity to be the first black man to be elected to our highest office—far sooner than any in America could have expected—he remains filled with bitter resentment and a desire to drive America down a peg.

Obama hates America not because he was born outside of our borders, but because he was raised outside of our culture.  He was surrounded his entire life by those fringe elements who believed and still believe that America, as a bastion of individual liberty and individual responsibility, is the prime source of evil in the world and that only a government controlled by the elites of the world—leftist elites—can  properly run our nation and our lives for us.

From his anti-colonial, Marxist, Kenyan father and his communist mother, through his mentor Frank Marshall Davis, into his years at Columbia and Harvard Law School, to career as a “community organizer” surrounded by people like Bill Ayers and Bernadette Dohrn, people who hate America, and his attendance at Reverend Wright’s church, Obama has been steeped in anti-American sentiment.  How could he not be filled with bitterness and resentment when his entire American experience has been shaped by members of the extreme anti-American left.

That is why people like the Marxist Van Jones found a comfortable berth as “Green Jobs Advisor” in Obama’s Administration.  That’s why Anita Dunn, the White House’s Communications Director felt free to say that Mao Tse Tung was her favorite philosopher.  That is why someone like authoritarian Cass Sunstein, who believes it is not only the right, but the obligation of government to influence the choices of American citizens, can be placed into a position of power such as the OIRA (Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs).

The truth is the “birther” thing was never going to achieve their expressed desire to have Obama kicked out of office because he was ineligible.  Congress was never going to investigate the matter and the Supreme Court was never going to grant certiorari to any case that managed to reach it.

It was, for me, an entertaining diversion that allowed me to continually tweak the noses of liberals and to goad them into making over-the-top pronouncements about tea-partiers and conservatives.

There is more than enough to attack Obama over.  After all, he’s an incompetent, incapable, under accomplished, under qualified, unprepared, Constitution-hating, Marxist, community organizer. He hates free market economies. He hates successful people. He hates small businesses, He hates universal free speech. He hates the Constitution because "it is a charter of negative rights." He wants to take America down a peg, because we are the source of all evil in the world--and what isn't our fault is western-civilization-in-general's fault.

He wants to destroy our economy so that he can force us into a government run economy. What more could anyone possibly need as a motivation to vote against him?   I think maybe those are reasons enough to work for his defeat in 2012. We don't need the "birther" issue.

Long Live Our American Republic!!!
