“Lord” Christopher Monckton, who is genuinely as batshit crazy as anyone you will ever encounter, is also apparently an eternal optimist. Despite Obama winning the presidency for a second time, he thinks that “the left” (to which Obama has only a tenuous connection) is on the verge of collapse and that the right is poised for victory. His reasoning is a bit, shall we say, convoluted: Obama is going to destroy everything and everyone will see that and liberalism will die.
The second remarkable thing about this “inauguration” is that – though you may not see it yet – it marks the end of the socialist/communist/fascist left as a global political force…
How, you may ask, does the failure of the Republican Party to take even the most elementary steps to get rid of an unlawful “president” mark the end of the left?
Simple. The longer Mr. Obama holds office, the more certain and visible will be the resulting national bankruptcy. And if he is allowed to serve out his second four-year sentence, nobody but the left will get the blame. For this reason, some Republicans did not want to win this election, which is why – for the second time in a row – they carefully chose the one candidate unquestionably incapable of beating him.
This faction argues that the huge damage he will cause will be less harmful in the long run, because once he is gone the left will be discredited.
Here is what will happen. He will continue to be soft on Islam, and Americans will be killed, and opinion will harden against Islamic terrorism.
He will continue to overspend catastrophically, and the Republicans, after a token show of dissent, will continue to let him get away with it.
He will continue to inflict crippling taxes and regulations in the name of Saving The Planet from “global warming” that has now been conspicuous for its unpredicted absence for almost two decades.
He will continue to argue that the corrupt United Nations and the European tyranny-by-clerk are a good thing.
In short, Obama will continue to embody and to espouse every shibboleth, totem and sacred cow of the communist left. And every one of those totems is going to come tumbling down over the coming decade or two…
In five years’ time, Black Jesus will be in the Big House (unless his Republican successor pardons him). The darling of the international left will have fallen victim to the corruption endemic within the left itself.
The darkest hour is just before the dawn.
“We’ve got them just where they want them!” Funny stuff.
