Stupid Is As Stupid Does

The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency. It will be easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails us. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.

Not sure who the author is. The version I received said “Author unknown.” It’s been on the Internet, and I think I have seen it before.

It hammers home a very valid point: an American electorate foolish enough to fall for the Hope and Change fraud in 2008, to drink the Kool Aid, to get suckered by a Cult of Personality did not happen overnight. It came about as a result of decades of dumbed-down gummint-run skoolz not teaching students about America, its history and its culture and traditions, the Constitution, but rather the propaganda of the America-hating Left. You know, those folks that think the United States and her military are the chief source of all evil in the world.

Unfortunately a fairly large number of those are teachers’ union thugs in charge of your children all day, seven hours a day, five days a week, four weeks a month, nine months out of the year. And it gets worse when those young skulls full of mush move on to America’s colleges and universities, which are no longer places of higher learning but rather Marxist/Leninist indoctrination centers where no variance from the doctrine of cultural Marxism is tolerated. Off to the re-education camps for you if you dare stray from the PC line.

Both Lenin and Hitler believed it was critical for the state to control young people, children and adolescents, in order to advance the statist agenda. Same with the progressive statists in America. The cultural Marxism that is masked in the curriculum of our gummint-run skoolz and our colleges and universities is frightening.

But combine this with the celebrity-obsessed media — what Bernard Goldberg calls the “Lamestream Media” — and you can see how the American Idol election of 2008 happened. It was the Perfect Storm of ignorance meeting propaganda.

Drive-By Media outlets pushing the latest on Paris Hilton’s cocaine arrest. The latest contestants on Dancing With the Stars. What outrageous thing did Mel Gibson or Sean Penn say or do now? The cult of celebrity rules and drowns out the real crises facing America.

Who cares if Bristol Palin and The Situation are on DWTS? We have budget deficits of $1.3 trillion and $1.4 trillion the last two fiscal years, the first two fiscal years of the Era of Hope and Change. We have the Mother of All Tax Hikes staring us in the face, ready to knock out a staggering economy and putting it down for the count. We have the first anti-American President in our history deliberately destroying this country at home and abroad in order to remake it in His own vision.

Fortunately, some Americans have noticed and have been paying attention. Look at all the Tea Party rallies, last year’s 9/12 rally in Washington, D.C. Last weekend’s Restoring Honor rally in our nation’s capitol. Hundreds of thousands of Americans turning out, ready to take their country back from the anti-American thugs out to destroy it.

Re-educating — I hate that phrase, since it is associated with Marxism — the American public on the country in which they live will be a long and difficult process. We can’t reverse decades of cultural Marxism indoctrination overnight.

Start by removing your children from the government indoctrination centers and biting the bullet and sending them to a good parochial school or homeschooling them. Remove them from dumbed-down content free curriculum, touchy-feely self-esteem babble and the hard Left’s agenda cleverly disguised as curriculum content. Radical environmentalism, the homosexual agenda, Feminazi brainwashing. All of it.

Parents of college-bound young men and women need to check out the colleges and universities carefully. Sad to say, many are indoctrination centers of cultural Marxism, but some are not.

Otherwise, the disaster of 2008 may be repeated in the near future. Let’s face it, folks. At the risk of breaking Godwin’s Law, we elected Hitler in 2008.

No, Obama is not Hitler, any more than Bush was Hitler. But we elected a personality in much the same manner as the German people elected Hitler in the 1930s.

We didn’t elect a President. We chose an American Idol. And there’s a steep price to be paid for such ignorance.
