Comments: Useful Idiots, Part II

"There are many parallels between the rebels without a clue of the 60s and these equally clueless children of privilege, including no understanding of the system they wish to overthrow or the horrors unleashed should they be successful."

which is hardly surprising as they're in large part the children and grandchildren of those same useless idiots from the 1960s (most of whom never grew out of it, instead becoming the BHOs and Cindy Sheehans of today.

Shows how stupid these country hicks are in America. Makes one understand why the country has such a terrible image of the state-fat, toothless, uneducated idiots. This country is in this terrible condition because of one person---Bush, so if you want to blame someone then blame him. And welcome the next president of the United States--Barack Obama, because yes he will be elected again, so it doesn't matter what you stupid hicks think.
it boggles the mind that people take the idea that Obama is a Marxist/Socialist/Fascist seriously and are willing to make a fool of themselves by admitting it publicly.He isn't a marxist, you're just a racist liar!

@1questionman, calling people stupid hicks is kind of unproductive and demonstrates a very infantile mindset. Having said that, anyone who thinks BHO is a Marxist or Socialist obviously has no grasp of what those words actually mean, and has almost certainly never met either one. Maybe the writer should speak to an actual Socialist and hear their opinions on BHO, who is a corporatist Democrat and knows how to serve the capitalist elites with the best of them.

So, what you are saying 1Qman, is that you see a strong correlation between one's genetic makeup (this 'race' which you speak) and political leanings?

I don't care WHAT 'ism' BHO is, as far as I'm concerned it doesn't matter, it is the damage he has done to this country that needs to be addressed. Obama has damaged the country nearly beyond the capacity to repair it. The move to cripple coal generated electricity is only one facet of the damage.

The rule of law has been flouted by the very department that is responsible for enforcing it, the economy has been damaged by ruinous policies and other outrages too numerous to mention.

The occupy Wall Street ninnies are just fleas on the body politic. The main problem are the various governmental departments that are infested with left-wing ideologues who are determined to bring about a 'fundamental change' in our way of life. It isn't enough to get a new president, we need a thorough house cleaning.

Dear Readers:

I call Mr. Obama a Marxist and assert that he is promulgating Socialist policies because I have taken the time to extensivly research his background. His associations, mentors and friends during his formative years were virtually all self-described communists or socialists and in his two (?!) autobiographies, Mr. Obama admits that in college he chose to hang out with Marxist people and organizations. He hired an avowed Marxist (Van Jones) and a woman whose favorite historical character was Mao (Anita Dunn), the most prolific communist mass murderer in history. Every one of his hires in the Department of Justice have been people with far, far left, even socialist and communist associations and ties.

His rhetoric is the rhetoric of class warfare and his underlying economic principle is redistribution of wealth, both fundamentals of Marxist thought. Regarding the idea that some Socialists don't like him or consider him impure, there is more than ample evidence that Mr, Obama consciously practices stealth socialism, which is the American way of necessity. That such people violently object to the suggestion that Mr, Obama is a Marxist/socialist may well be case of people objecting too much.

It is useful to use such labels because they are far more descriptive of his writings, rhetoric and actions (ObamaCare, anyone?) than any label reserved for conventional American politicians such as Bill Clinton. Is there anyone that doubts that without the restraints of our democratic institutions, Mr. Obama would have turned us into a European Socialist state--or worse, by now?

I'm entirely comfortable with such labels in Mr, Obama's case, labels that have, by the way, nothing whatever to do with race. People of all races have been caught up in the totalitarian, anti-Democratic impulses of Marxism, which shrivels the soul and destroys the mind equally well regardless of skin color.

Call him what you wish, but work together to give America a fighting chance in 2012.

@1Questionman The OWS crowd are not country hicks rather pampered spoiled elitist urbanites.
Country Hicks are more likely to be found at a Tea Party rally and THEY do not leave a mess like the Progressive Left does.

I understand the OWS folks have a nice juicy bank account of donations, wonder if anyone has thought about having a summary judgement issued freezing that account until funds are placed into escrow for cleaning up and restoring the park after they have wrecked it??

The Tea Party wanted their liberties left alone. The "Wall Street" twits want a free lunch. This administration needs to be put in a zoo. At least they would be behind bars.

I don't know if you noticed... but there veterans, soldiers, and union workers next to the clueless youngins. Not everyone who supports OWS is a twit. That's just who is shouting the loudest. They're more like you than you think, they're unhappy with the system. If anyone here is a twit, it's you, for allowing the media to brainwash you with their divisive strategies. You want change in America? We all gotta work together. Otherwise, we can sit here all day squabbling while the guys on top laugh at us.
