Erik Rush, the staggeringly stupid and delusional columnist for such outlets as the Worldnutdaily and the Canada Free Press, has another hysterical and inane column declaring Barack Obama — if he is who he says he is, he whispers — to be a communist. It starts with this bit of absurdity:
In his February 1 column, Dr. Steven Lambert reprinted in part a section of testimony that was given before the House of Representatives in 1963; this cited 45 declared goals the Communist Party in America had in their strategy for taking the country over. The entire reprint is available in several places online, so I won’t use up space to include them here.
What’s chilling is that while reading them, it quickly becomes apparent that most of the 45 goals have been achieved, in whole or in part, and they are well on the way to realizing those that have not.
Uh, yeah. Take a look at that link above and see which ones “have been achieved” or are on the verge of being achieved. Most of them have to do with our relationship to Soviet-dominated communist countries, nearly all of which no longer exist. Let’s look at a few of those alleged goals:
1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
Wow, how shocking! We shouldn’t use nuclear weapons and spark a nuclear war with the Soviet Union. Well guess what? We didn’t, and the Soviet Union collapsed and has been relegated to the dustbin of history.
4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
Which largely has been done — at the behest of the business community, not the tiny, irrelevant Communist Party USA, which has a few hundred members and zero influence. And guess what? Trade is a great way to avoid war. You know why we will never go to war with China? Because both countries have too much to lose that way.
5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
Nope, didn’t happen until long after they ceased being Soviet satellites. And such aid was encouraged by the right as a means of creating new allies where there were once only enemies.
8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N. [Though the demolition of the Berlin Wall was completed in 1991, to date, little else of substance has changed in Germany, particularly with respect to genuine democratization; it remains in every way a hybrid communistic nation.]
You can see where all this is going. Rush links to an article that is simple idiotic in its claims. And then he adds his own:
Enter Barack Obama – or Barry Soetoro, Barry Soebarko, Bari Shabazz, or whatever his name truly is. A spoiled, narcissistic man-child with the heart of a street hustler, he is anointed by the radical intelligentsia as the one who can make that exponential leap, taking America from decades of soft socialism to an all-out, 21st-Century communist state. Indeed, it is a plan more ambitious than anything that was accomplished in Europe, whereby prosperous market economies and democracies were transformed into democratic socialist states. No, this will be more along the lines of what occurred in Russia or China, except that in the US, the radicals will have gained control of the infrastructure prior to seizing total power. I have already stated that there will be a bloodbath as this occurs.
Part of this has to do with the grandiosity of thinking and innate narcissism on the part of radicals like Obama, lusting for the “glory days” of communism and of those they have long-idolized. Part of it has to do with the hatred they hold for America and its people. They want to punish; in their arrogant and narrow perception of America as an oppressor nation, they want to see America’s children starving (at least for a while), her people diseased, terrorized, and pauperized on a scale dwarfing that of the Great Depression. Only then will citizens be sufficiently pliant; only then can the radicals remove their masks with impunity.
Ah yes, secret conspiracies to bring about a communist society. They’re like catnip for morons.
