The Enemy of My Enemy...

What is the real psychological state of Barack Hussein Obama underneath his cool, confident public persona?


Is he truly a radical who is full of doubt, rage and self-anger? Did Michelle Obama show a great deal of rage and self-loathing with her comment that she had never been proud of America despite the fact that she had become a wealthy lawyer making more money than most white Americans?


Was Obama’s abandonment by his African father not a hostile act that is being manifested in an inner hostility today? Did his political rise in the corruption of Chicago not encourage an inner self-hatred, with the recognition of the illegitimate nature of what he achieved only by dint of that corruption? Or of the hardening of the soul required to prosper in such an environment?


Does Obama’s association with a domestic terrorist named William Ayers not reflect anger? Is Ayers himself not extremely hostile to America? Is Obama?


Indeed all of this may be true if you look deeply into Obama. Because human behavior has laws that have been well-defined for millennia. And there is one simple truth that dictates all of human behavior: People either like and respect themselves or, on the other extreme, they hate themselves. And nobody is angrier than leftists are, or more doubtful and plagued by more uncertainty and thus self-rage.


Nobody. After conservative radio king Rush Limbaugh was rushed to a hospital on December 30, some left-wing Rush-hater within hours had posted on wikipedia.org that Limbaugh had died.


Doesn’t this represent unrelenting anger? Have you ever wondered what it must be like to be so terribly angry all of the time?


Here is another rule of human behavior: People who hate America also hate themselves. This is represented in the self-loathing, enraged, anti-American left in our national politics.


Why is this true?


Because the essential nature of liberty is based in optimism, truth-telling and confidence, while leftists rally around anger, doubt and falsehood, which always lead to tyranny.


Look at two of their big recent lies – ‘global warming’ suddenly became ‘climate change’ because ‘warming’ had been debunked; and ’47 million uninsured’ suddenly became ’30 million uninsured’ in the health-care debate.


In his autobiography, Dreams From My Father, Obama wrote about his father who abandoned Barack and his mother and went back to Africa and died an alcoholic in a car accident. Although Obama has claimed that his father was a very smart man, this is a deception that Obama carries deep in his heart. Because genuinely smart men do not destroy themselves.


Obama then was raised by his single communist-sympathizing mother and a radical marxist Indonesian stepfather. And communism is based in pure destruction. Just look at communist societies from the 20th century, all of which are or were based in murder, starvation and devastation – the Soviet Union, Cambodia, North Korea, Zimbabwe etc.


After his biological father died, Obama then wrote in his autobiography how he sought to distance himself not from that father’s heritage but from his white mother’s heritage. And after he once praised his white grandmother saying “whatever strength and discipline I have comes from her” he wrote  the following about white people in Dreams From My Father:


“I ceased to advertise my mother’s race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites.”


Or: “It was my father’s image, the black man, son of Africa, that I’d package all the attributes I sought in myself, the attributes of Martin and Malcolm, Dubois and Mandela.”


Or: “To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students, the foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets.”


Or: “I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother’s race.”


Or: “That hate hadn’t gone away,” he wrote, blaming “white people — some cruel, some ignorant, sometimes a single face, sometimes just a faceless image of a system claiming power over our lives.” (end of excerpt)


Why is he identifying with his father to the exclusion of his white mother’s family to the point of rejecting them outright?


Answer: Because people can be drawn to the darkness as strongly as they can be drawn to the light. And Obama has made the dark choice. Otherwise he would be a completely different person.


Now we have the case of the Christmas Terrorist on the Delta flight into Detroit. Obama’s initial response to the attack was strangely emotionless. But this is Obama. He always seems to want to appear ‘cool’ and controlled.


He seemed ‘cool’ in announcing terror trials in New York City; ‘cool’ in announcing the shutdown of Guantanamo Bay; and completely ‘cool’ but eerily disconnected at his bizarre press conference in response to the Fort Hood massacre when he spent more than two minutes talking about Indian tribal business before addressing the attack by a Muslim radical on our American troops, leaving 13 dead.


Is his cool demeanor hiding something underneath, something sinister?


Indeed it may be. Because certain types of ‘cool’ people are hiding behind that facade, like drug-addicted rock stars and Follywood actors.


What does Obama really think about the African Muslim named Omar Farouk Abdulmutallab boarding an airplane on Christmas and flying into Detroit and trying to blow up that plane? Does he, in a way, see his father – also an African Muslim – mounting that attack against America? And does this lead Obama to sympathize deep down inside with that terrorist who wanted to kill 300 Christian Americans on the holiest day of the Christian calendar?


It is worth thinking about. Obama referred to Abdulmutallab as a “suspect”. CNN called him an “alleged terrorist”. Yet the words “suspect” and “alleged terrorist” refer in American jurisprudence to people who are not known with certainty to have carried out a crime while Abdulmutallab was caught red-handed. Which Obama was refusing to acknowledge.


What is inside Obama? What does he really represent?


We do not really know him, do we? Is he the smiling family man that he portrays himself as? Or is he the angry, hardball extremist meeting with union thugs and radical operatives to foment a revolutionary change on America?


There is an old saying that ‘The enemy of my enemy is my friend…’ And today radical Islam is an enemy of America. And the radical left is too. So Obama’s acquiescence to radical Islam and to the political left may mean that Obama is an ally of the opponents of their common enemy – America.


This thesis very well could be true. It just requires some simple study of human behavior. Which is not very difficult or complex at all.
