The fact of matter is that it is true that Barack Obama was mentored from the age of nine by a card-carrying Communist, Frank Marshall Davis. Davis had no love for the USA and certainly no love for capitalism, although it provided his livelihood and career. His vision for America was one fashioned on communism—a Utopia where all is shared according to need—at least that is what they claim in the brochure. When an impressionable boy of nine is exposed to such beliefs, one can argue that it would be quite difficult to change that perspective as he progressed toward adulthood. Obama, by his own admission, has said that he tended to associate more with the radical element during his college days and that he had no interest in pursuing the American dream.
Barack Obama came to know Bill Ayers and his radical wife while a student at Columbia University, and there is some speculation that Ayres was the ghostwriter of Obama’s book, Dreams of My Father. There are also indications that Bill Ayers’ father—a powerful figure in the Chicago area during the 1980’s—was quite influential in getting Obama his position as a community organizer in South Chicago. Ayers may also have been the connection between Obama and Saul Alinsky, known as the “radical’s radical” and author of Rules For Radicals, a book Obama claims is among his favorites. Obama’s run for the Illinois Senate was launched in the home of Bill Ayers but when that information came to light, Obama claimed that Ayers was simply “an acquaintance” whom he hardly knew. You might remember that Ayers and his wife were the key figures in establishing the “Weather Underground”, a radical 60’s group which carried out bombing and domestic terrorism. Miraculously, although on the FBI’s Most Wanted List of that day, Ayers never served any time for his actions. Instead he has spent much of his adult life as a professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago teaching young Americans his radical poison.
Then there was the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, the pastor of Obama’s church in Chicago. For 20 plus years, Obama sat in his pew at Trinity United Church of Christ and listened to this man spew his vitriol, most infamously bellowing, “No, no, no, not God Bless America. God damn America!” Apparently, Barack Obama must have agreed in principle with the Reverend or he would have quickly found a new church in which to sit. How can one be so “patriotic” and continue to listen to such condemnation of our country?
Several times, President Obama has stated that the US is no longer a Judeo-Christian nation, but as Dr. Ben Carson points out, Mr. Obama doesn’t get to decide that. And, unless our history is based on an untruth, I think we know that Christians came to this land to escape religious persecution under the King and Church of England. For this reason, the Christian religion was central to the development of our government and to our rights under it.
“One nation under God” is a permanent part of our history and one that this president cannot change no matter how many claims he makes to the contrary. Do you have to worship God or profess Christianity to come to this country and live in peace? Absolutely not, but you certainly cannot expect to come here and take over the country with your religion or lack of it. It would seem that Mr. Obama does not share that belief and his actions indicate that he could easily be swayed into making Islam the official religion of the nation if he thought he could get away with it.
Further proof of Obama’s lack of respect and love for this country is evident in what has come to be known as “the apology tour.” He has knelt and kissed the hand of people who seem more than willing to provide the funds to destroy us and offered apologies on our behalf. He has shown us over and over that he is willing to turn his head at the actions of religious fanatics of the Middle East who openly state that they carry out their hideous and barbaric exploits in the name of Islam. Mr. Obama states that these groups do not represent Islam, and seemingly gives them a pass by failing to do anything of substance about their carnage, knowing full well that this violence will eventually be visited upon America's shores. How can one love his country and turn a blind eye to such an eventuality?
We have an administration in the White House made up of professed Socialists, Communists, and even members of the Muslim Brotherhood but no one dares say it is antithetical to the American way of life. We see a president who claims to have taught college-level courses on the Constitution, yet he openly disrespects that document at every turn, all but daring anyone to defy him. This week he used his veto pen to block the Keystone pipeline, something most Americans want and believe we need to attain energy independence. He does so under the guise of “forcing” alternative energy upon the American people. We see a government-run healthcare program which is destroying both the insurance and medical industries and already making middle-income Americans pay higher premiums for lower levels of healthcare than they previously had—all in the name handing out free healthcare to some. We see a president who claims that he wants to “strengthen and grow the middle-class” while his every action tears at its very foundation.
Do I understand where Mr. Giuliani is coming from? You bet I do, and a whole lot of other Americans understand it as well. But our liberal media wants you to ignore all of this and be outraged that Giuliani would have such audacity. California Senator Barbara Boxer wants you to grasp the fact that Obama loves America because “he single-handedly killed Osama Bin Laden.” Ms. Boxer might dwell on the fact that this president had little choice in the matter given that Bin Laden was handed to him by our intelligence agency and military. Politically, he was “boxed-in” on the matter.
I am now waiting for the media to play the “race card” on Giuliani, as it is the one weapon in the liberal arsenal which seems to be “all-purpose,” covering a multitude of infractions. That same card will be played on me and any other Americans who question the actions of this president or his patriotism. You can run from it, or you can stand up and be counted. If you love this nation as “the land of the free and the home of the brave,” I suggest you seriously consider what you can do now—because time is running out.
