In America’s history we’ve had every type of leader, every type of Administration, every type of President. From the one-of-a-kind George Washington to the fool Woodrow Wilson to the disaster Jimmy Carter to the great Ronald Reagan we’ve had real good and stinking rotten bad too. But what we never had and never saw was the likes of Barack Obama. His beliefs, his ideology, his attitude, his hubris…we’ve seen the like before, but we never had a divider-in-chief like him.
President Obama and his Administration are the first to use victimization as such an effective club with which to beat Americans into submission. The game plan to ruin America has been implemented from day one of Obama’s win in ’08. He said he’d “fundamentally change America” and though I have no idea what was so terrible about us, he apparently does. And he’s really changed us already. Welcome to the land of victims.
The Progressive Liberal strategy is pretty simple. It starts with electing all the Lefty Eggheads possible. Done. Elect a sympathetic Socialist for President. Done. Have that President be one who’s willing to piss on the Constitution any time he sees fit. Done. Take advantage of the corrupt and shameless mainstream media. Done. With the stage set we move “forward”.
It is then time to activate the heart and soul of the grand plan. Victimization. It is so easy especially when a large part of the population is ready for “victimhood”. Victimhood is like the opposite of “Knighthood” which requires bravery, chivalry, selflessness, etc. Victimhood is bestowed by President Obama and the Left, on those low info voters who just need to be heard.
Blacks are victims of the colonial white slave owner, racist, cotton pickin’ rich white folks. It doesn’t matter that blacks sold blacks to blacks and whites. It doesn’t matter that the Democrat Party did their best to keep slavery legal. It doesn’t matter that it was long ago. Joe Biden said it best….that the Republicans want to “put y’all back in chains”. The folks on the Left keep racism alive and well in America. What would guys like Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson do without racism. It is their purpose in life to find it everywhere whether it exists there or not. They are like termites. Racism is their oak.
Poor people are victims. They’re ALL poor through no fault of their own. The ones who never tried in school, dropped out, got in trouble, screwed around, slacked off, were lazy or just didn’t give a damn are poor now because of some guy in a corporation somewhere. Or due to a hateful and indifferent upper class. Or because that guy over there has a job he earned. Or whatever. I remember as a child our family was helping a poor family with food, clothing, day care etc. With church help the mom and dad both found jobs. Well it wasn’t long before mom and dad quit their jobs and went back on welfare. They, like many on the dole are poor by choice. Those people make me sick.
Women are victims. Men want to rule them, take away their birth control, pay them less than they are worth, etc. Look at silly Sandra Fluke. Look at the ridiculous speeches she’s given on the subject. She’s a victim so she says. She NEEDS to be to have a voice. The voice screams victimhood. Wahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. This just doesn’t end.
Blacks are victims of whites. So are Hispanics. (We white folk must really be some kind of hideous people eh)? Women are victims of men. The poor are victims of everybody not poor. The city is a victim of the suburb. Workers are victims of bosses. People are victims of corporations. Mother earth is a victim of everyone who doesn’t believe in the bullcrap known as global warming. We are all victims of something or someone so we’re told.
The Obama administration and its proponents use victimhood (and the almighty race card) all the time to carve us up, to turn us against one another, to make us suspicious of one another so we won’t come together in love and trust.
There are plenty of people who are happy being victims because they are ignorant and lazy and want handouts. Screw those people. You know them when you see them. Avoid them. Most people don’t see themselves as victims and they take responsibility for themselves. It can be hard to resist though, the idea that someone “owes” you. The Left wants us all to feel owed so they can step in and get us some “social justice”. If they can break us up into tribes at war with each other we’re done.
Life is full of choices. I choose NOT to be a victim. I don’t want anyone to be MY victim. The disgusting leadership in Washington WANTS and NEEDS us to feel victimized by each other because unity will kill, (yes, kill) their grand agenda. Americans must stick together against such tactics or we’ll end up like the Native Americans (who fought each other constantly and never unified). Obama is carving Americans up and placing us against each other. How revolting a man he is! Quick break while I go puke.
The big victim in America is……….America. The Country is torn up, broke, hurting. It is intentional. Imagine if Romney had been elected and he actually put in an energy policy. The Country would be rockin’ like N. Dakota. Not Obama though. No energy independence for us he says. No millions of new jobs. No new prosperity for us. King Obama has spoken. You sit down and shut up and be a victim of everyone but the real oppressor…Obama himself.
Americans of all stripes must refuse the temptation to be called a victim. We are an independent people. We must take care of our own and also help each other. Do you think you are down because someone else is up? Poor because someone else is rich? Stupid because someone else is smart? Sick because someone else is healthy? That is what our President and the Progressive Left WANTS and NEEDS us to believe. Remember the quote about a Nation divided against itself?
And one of my very favorites:
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
In America you can truly be anything you want to be. Be ok, or good, or great or whatever you want but don’t be a victim. Don’t fall into that self-pity trap. If you do you are owned. Rather, be free and self-reliant and truly American. We are the home of the free and the brave, not the home of the pitiful and victimized.
