Reason as the Leading Motive

The Evil Obamas

Posted by Jerry on March 4, 2008

The disgusting racket of self-sacrifice and self-abnegation that the Obamas run must be exposed and condemned harshly for all its evilness. If ever I heard anything downright evil explicitly offered as virtue, it has to be these words of Michelle Obama–the wife of US presidential candidate Barak Obama and perhaps the next first lady of the United States:

“We left corporate America, which is a lot of what we’re asking young people to do,” she tells the women. “Don’t go into corporate America. You know, become teachers. Work for the community. Be social workers. Be a nurse. Those are the careers that we need, and we’re encouraging our young people to do that. But if you make that choice, as we did, to move out of the money-making industry into the helping industry, then your salaries respond.”

And you thought Ayn Rand exaggerated the evilness of her altruistic villains in her novels? The Obamas are right out of the pages of Atlas Shrugged. If Barak Obama is elected as the next US president, it will be the end of an industrial and financial powerhouse that literally holds the continent of Africa and many nations afloat, and the start of a self-sacrificial, tribalistic, village economy that will surely bleed to its own death.

I picked up this story from The Undercurrent, which has written up its own harsh condemnation of Michelle Obama. I encourage bloggers to blog this story on your sites as well.

    I wonder what Obama will say when all the good young intelligent people give up their dreams of being successful productive business people and sacrifice their lives to serve other people. I guess the products and services will just invent themselves! The anti-“money makers” must think everything grows on trees. It’s pathetic.

  2. “…If Barak Obama is elected as the next US president, it will be the end of an industrial and financial powerhouse…”

    You need to look at what kind of things this powerhouse has been subjected to in the past: Richard Nixon of wage and price freeze and “We’re all Keynesians now.” fame to name just one. Roosevelt (either of them). The list could go on.

    This one anti-profit statement doesn’t significantly distinguish Michelle Obama from anybody else in American politics. They are all alike in this respect.

    The end is not more near than it was 40 years ago. It was a lot farther away at that time than a lot of people thought it was. Saying that the end is near now and that one election can bring it on us is a good way to discredit yourself on an otherwise excellent blog.

    I think Obama will be, on balance, quite a bit less harmful to our freedom than McCain of McCain-Feingold infame. I plan of voting for the first time in many elections and voting for Obama, and I’ll probably vote for Hilary if she gets the nomination.

    There’s also a few ways in which a Democrat victory may be positive for the future of capitalism in the US. The most promising is a backlash against Republican anti-immigration nonsense. An increase in legal immigration and/or a public debate where the Republican fear of Mexicans gets exposed for the insanity that it is would be a great benefit. And this could happen if the Democrats are in power and emboldened in any way.

    Republicans forced to explain to each other how they lost may (in some decades) yield a Republican party that’s actually worth something which would be a good thing. I’m actually looking forward to voting Democrat for these reasons.

    Also, Obama is the only candidate with anything like a principled stand on gay marriage.

    Also, Obama is the first politician to have anything like a principled stand on gay marriage.

  3. Ouch, that last should have said “first candidate for high office to have something like a principled stand on gay marriage.” There are plenty of lesser elected officials with actually principled views on that issue.

    Good comment above mine….
    I saw this TV interview (I can’t remember any of the names, unfortunately). A big Obama supporter (and a Senator) was asked by the anchor during the interview to list any one of Obama’s achievements as an elected official. The guy hemmed and hawed but was, on repeated grilling, forced to accept that he couldn’t list a SINGLE one! :-)

  5. You know Ergo, I think Rand portrayed her altruistic villains in Atlas Shrugged authentically. I think that is what makes her villains all the more hateful.

  6. no, not hateful… contemptible.

  7. Ergo said

    Cedar, I agree with most of your points. Voting for the democrats is the only reasonable option this election cycle. This, however, does not mean that ideas like that of the Obamas’ shouldn’t go severely condemned. I am hoping for a Clinton nomination, and the latest results in Rhode Island and Ohio are encouraging. Unlike the pragmaticism of concrete-bound Clinton, Obama is a consistent and ideological believer in the morality of Socialism. In any battle of ideas, Ayn Rand said, it is those who are the most consistent that win.

  8. Ergo said

    I’ve seen that video myself, Rambodoc. It was funny! And quite frankly, you can’t blame the guy for fumbling all over on Chris Matthews; there really isn’t much to say when it comes to Obama’s track record! In fact, I remember just a couple of years ago seeing him in the Chicago City Hall when I used to work there for the Mayor’s office. At the time, he was there for some school assembly board meeting, I think. And lo, two years later, he’s running for the Office of the President of the United States of America!!!

    About gay marriage that Cedar brought up, I’d like to add an important point: it is precisely because Obama is so principled in his views on gay marriage that I hope he does not win the Dem nomination. He is a man of *principles*–the WRONG ones! And the consequences of that can be disastrous. He holds similarly principled views on socialized government healthcare and national “security” (more like international appeasement). That’s the problem, Cedar.

    Finally, I’m actually opposed to gay marriage. I don’t want to give the government legitimacy in yet another sphere of private, individual affairs. Likewise, I am also opposed to government sanctions, tax breaks, and other support for straight marriages. Properly, marriages are an individual or family affair; the only involvement I see the government having in this is keeping records of marriages for liability, property, health, and other issues. (For full disclosure, I am gay).

    Obama’s principled views on gay marriage? He thinks marriage is between a man and a woman. Unless that’s the principle you like.

    I’m a capitalist, pro-free market, and love Ayn Rand’s books. I have a difficult time understanding why so many Ayn Rand followers have developed a hate for Obama.

    To start Obama has run a smart campaign, he’s raised more money than any other candidate in the history of the United States, the man hired the best people for the job in his campaing, he used technology in a smart. Obama proved to be a the best business man as far as running an efficient campaign. Wouldn’t Ayn Rand support Obama based on this? Of course she wuold.

    Number 2, Obama speaks about changing Washington and the bureaucracy and ending the political game. He’s more anti Washington and anti government than any politician in US history. This is the second reason why we should vote for Obama, he’s the only one that has attacked big Washington government.

    Number 3, Entrepreneurs like the founders and current CEO of Google support Obama.

    Number 4, if you want to end big government that is involved in nation building in Iraq, Obama is the man. He opposed this Iraq fiasco from the get go.

    Number 5, Obama constantly talks about opportunity, the founding fathers, the possibility of hope and dreams. This is the way Jefferson and Maddison and the writers of the american constitution spoke. Obama talks about self reliance and hard work and the american dream. He wants the american dream that has been stolen by politicians back on US soil.

    Enough said, Obama for president! obama the best hope for entrepreneurs and hard working americans! Obama, a capitalism that works!

    And I can go on and on and on. But seriously, I can’t understand how so many Ayn Rand followers hate Obama. Obama’s appeals to the same constituency as Ayn Rand, the young people that have a dream. I sometimes wonder whether those people that oppose Obama truly understand Ayn Rand. It saddens me how Ayn Rand has been misinterpreted.

      now do you understand why obama should be disarded there is no difference between obama and osama. Obama is a pure diplomate to gain confidance of some speciic lobby he condemed pakistan but after election he is supporting pakistan and making all the trouble for India by supporting pakistan: knowing that pakistan is the hub of global terrorisms. it is clear that he has symphty with Islamic terrorisms.

  11. Bill said

    Three more things about Obama. He is the first politician that wants to improve the situation of the poor and senior citizens by cutting taxes. No taxes for senior citizens that make less than $50 K and for families that make less than $75 K. This sounds too good to be true but he mentined it at a town hall meeting in Indiana (there’s a video in youtube).

    Obama, like John Galt hates businesses that live off the government. The american health care is bankrupt (costs are 15% of GDP compared to 5% in Japan and 6% in Europe and 9% in Canada) due to the HMO’s and are in bed with politicians and are constantly lobbying Washington. Barack Obama will wean big business and lobbyists from Washington.

    Barack Obama will give power to the american citizen and not big government in Washington and the corportate lobbysts. It is people like you and I and businesses and communities that Obama stands for.

    Go Obama!

    “Would you maintain friendly relations with an unrepentant terrorist? Would you even shake his hand?” asks Charles Krauthammer in his article “Obama’s Revealing ‘Distractions’.”
    It’s a good and necessary read:

    Obama’s Revealing ‘Distractions’
    by Charles Krauthammer
    April 25, 2008
    RealClear Politics

    “Real change has never been easy. … The status quo in Washington will fight. They will fight harder than ever to divide us and distract us with ads and attacks from now until November.” — Barack Obama, Pennsylvania primary night speech

    WASHINGTON — With that, Obama identified the new public enemy: the “distractions” foisted upon a pliable electorate by the malevolent forces of the status quo, i.e., those who might wish to see someone else become president next January. “It’s easy to get caught up in the distractions and the silliness and the tit for tat that consumes our politics” and “trivializes the profound issues” that face our country, he warned sternly. These must be resisted.

    Why? Because Obama understands that the real threat to his candidacy is less Hillary Clinton and John McCain than his own character and cultural attitudes. He came out of nowhere with his autobiography already written, then saw it embellished daily by the hagiographic coverage and kid-gloves questioning of a supine press. (Which is why those “Saturday Night Live” parodies were so devastatingly effective.)

    Then came the three amigos: Tony Rezko, the indicted fixer; Jeremiah Wright, the racist reverend; William Ayers, the unrepentant terrorist. And then Obama’s own anthropological observation that “bitter” working-class whites cling to guns and religion because they misapprehend their real class interests.

    In the now-famous Pennsylvania debate, Obama had extreme difficulty answering questions about these associations and attitudes. The difficulty is understandable. Some of the contradictions are inexplicable. How does one explain campaigning throughout 2007 on a platform of transcending racial divisions, while in that same year contributing $26,000 to a church whose pastor incites race hatred?

    What is Obama to do? Dismiss all such questions about his associations and attitudes as “distractions.” And then count on his acolytes in the media to wage jihad against those who have the temerity to raise these questions. As if the character and beliefs of a man who would be president are less important than the “issues.” As if some political indecency was committed when Obama was prevented from going through his 21st — and likely last — primary debate without being asked about Wright or Ayers or the tribal habits of gun-toting God-loving Pennsylvanians.

    Take Ayers. Obama makes it sound as if the relationship consists of having run into each other at the DMV. In fact, Obama’s political career was launched in a 1995 meeting at Ayers’ home. Obama’s own campaign says that they maintain “friendly” relations.

    Obama’s defense is that he was 8 when Ayers and his Weather Underground comrades were planting bombs at the Pentagon, the U.S. Capitol and other buildings. True. But Obama was 40 when Ayers said publicly that he doesn’t regret setting bombs. Indeed, he said, “I feel we didn’t do enough.”

    Would you maintain friendly relations with an unrepentant terrorist? Would you even shake his hand? To ask why Obama does is perfectly legitimate and perfectly relevant to understanding what manner of man he is.

    Obamaphiles are even more exercised about the debate question regarding the flag pin. Now, I have never worn one. Whether anyone does is a matter of total indifference to me. But apparently not to Obama. He’s taken three affirmative steps in regard to flag pins. After 9/11, he began wearing one. At a later point, he stopped wearing it. Then last year he explained why: Because it “became a substitute for, I think, true patriotism, which is speaking out on issues that are of importance to our national security.”

    Apart from the self-congratulatory fatuousness of that statement — as if in this freest of all countries, political self-expression is somehow scarce or dangerous or a sign of patriotic courage — to speak of pin-wearing as a sign of inauthentic patriotism is to make an issue of it yourself. For Obamaphiles to now protest the very asking of the question requires a fine mix of cynicism and self-righteousness.

    But Obama needs to cast out such questions as illegitimate distractions because they are seriously damaging his candidacy. As people begin to learn about this just-arrived pretender, the magic dissipates. He spent six weeks in Pennsylvania. Outspent Hillary more than two to one. Ran close to 10,000 television ads — spending more than anyone in any race in the history of the state — and lost by 10 points.

    And not because he insufficiently demagogued NAFTA or the other “issues.” It was because of those “distractions” — i.e., the things that most reveal character and core beliefs.

    you obama supporters are so brain washed. I can see through him like a glass door. Do you think McCain is Bush? Is that the problem? Wake up. Don’t weaken this Nation. Things will happen that you have no idea about.

    OIL IS FOR DINOSAURS
    I hope that Obama will talk about the true cost of oil. People in this country are complaining that oil gasoline costs them $4 per gallon. However, oil costs us much more. I think that the cost to the environment, which can be calculated in dollars…for example the cost to clean-up oil spills, the cost of dirty air and the health problems it causes, the costs of hurricanes like Ike and Katrina, the cost of global warming in general. I hope Obama has his people calculate these real costs and average them into the cost per gallon for gasoline. I would imagine gasoline actually costs the average citizen more like $50 a gallon!
    Just as an addiction to heroin costs much more than the price of the drugs itself, so addiction to oil costs much more than what we pay at the pump.
    What about the cost to our beautiful landscapes; the coastal waters, the pristine Alaskan environment. And what should we do with all of these ridiculous drilling rigs after we have sucked all the oil out of the ground and pumped it up into the atmosphere? What about the cost of removing the drilling machines when they are no longer of use…when all the oil is gone…because one day it will all be gone…that is its nature. Oil is non-renwable. Or do all the fanatical born again christians like Palin not care because they are just hoping for Armageddon soon anyway? The policies of the right wing christians will certainly hurry that along!
    OIL IS FOR DINOSAURS…and if we keep using OIL we will become dinosaurs.
    We need to invest in the energy of the future….in fact solar and wind power are the energies of the present. They already exist! Lets use them more fully and develop a sustainable infrastructure before the religious right (which does not care about the planet anyway) turn Earth into a living hell.
    It is ironic that the place where the black poison is refined is also the place where mother nature strikes hardest with the rage that oil curdles in her blood. Maybe it is mother nature saying…STOP WITH THE OIL ALREADY or I will send storms the size of states to stop it for you!

    Patrick, your comment is intellectually and philosophically naive. There is no cost to these inanimate things because are non-living entities that cannot value anything. They can be valued, it is true, by humans, assuming that humans can procure some use for them in their lives, but nothing in nature has value in and of itself.

    Ask yourself if you’d live in a world without electricity, just so you can gaze at the “untouched” Alaskan beauty, before you freeze to death from no central heating, or have to go and hunt your own food with a spear.

    And what should we do with all of these ridiculous drilling rigs after we have sucked all the oil out of the ground and pumped it up into the atmosphere?

    You mean, those fantastic innovations of the human mind that allow us to reshape the wild natural world to OUR liking, improving the quality of life for BILLIONS, and allowing us to concentrate on the pleasures of life and pursuits that better our existence, instead of foraging around like animals in dustbins seeking our next scrap of food?

    What about the cost of removing the drilling machines when they are no longer of use…when all the oil is gone…because one day it will all be gone…that is its nature.

    Cost to whom?? You seem to be talking as one who will personally lose from the construction or de-construction of oil rigs. Private companies invest millions of THEIR own money in this endeavour, and they will benefit or lose THEIR money based on market fluctuations. You will not feel any loss. You do however reap untold benefits by these pioneers of business who provide the lifeblood (fuel) of society.

    Oil is non-renwable

    And when it runs out (which despite the fanaticism of the “green” movement, is NOT likely to happen any time soon), we’ll have to find something else. Demand creates supply, and the people who provide the supply do so based on their own intelligence and expertise.

    OIL IS FOR DINOSAURS…and if we keep using OIL we will become dinosaurs.
    We need to invest in the energy of the future….in fact solar and wind power are the energies of the present.

    Who is this “we” you keep referring to? Tell me, Patrick, do you own a car? Do you travel by bus or train? Do you use electricity in any form? If so, you’re a hypocrite. There is no rational mixing of principles. If you believe the earth shouldn’t be harvested for resources, you should apply this policy consistency through your life. Of course, if you did that you would DIE, so you are forced to hold your opinions in a contradictory vacuum without any reference to reality.

    Despite talk of this collective “we” you make, “we” have already spoken; the consumers – “us” have already said what we need: an efficient and quick energy source to power everything we take for granted in everyday life – the alternative power sources you allude to are simply NOT up to the task, yet. Maybe they will be some day, but it won’t happen because the Green movement complains about man making a living off nature, it will happen because the market changes and Energy companies change to suit.

    Lets use them more fully and develop a sustainable infrastructure before the religious right (which does not care about the planet anyway) turn Earth into a living hell.

    Environmentalist alarmism! There is no threat to the earth, and it is far from proven that man is causing any damage. Even if man is causing change to the environment, so what? The environment changes constantly from a million different factors, such as sun spots etc. But as soon as man makes a TINY change to IMPROVE himself, the environmentalists complain, as if man had NO RIGHT to make a living for himself; as if nature had more of a right to exist than man; as if man wasn’t in fact part of nature; as if, if man DIDN’T reshape nature to suit his will he could still survive, when he couldn’t.

    It is ironic that the place where the black poison is refined is also the place where mother nature strikes hardest with the rage that oil curdles in her blood. Maybe it is mother nature saying…STOP WITH THE OIL ALREADY or I will send storms the size of states to stop it for you!

    More anthromorphising of inanimate objects. People like you do not want to see man advance and improve, they want to drag mankind down to the level of the caveman, ignoring the fact that even caveman had to light fires, build caves, and shape weapons. Human beings MUST exploit the earth in order to survive.

    The truth that you do not want to accept is what Ayn Rand said: environmentalism leads to a world without technology. It’s as simple as that.

    Evanescent, that reply was WAY more than Patrick deserved. He should consider himself lucky that someone bothered to reply at all.

    The irony of him using a computer and the internet to post those comments!

    I think everyone is underestimating Obama. He is, G-d forbid, the next Hitler or Stalin or any other world dictator that sought out mass killings and/or world domination. I think in reality, he is working for the Muslim terrorists of the world. He must be stopped by whatever means.

  19. Jim Bob said

    Please do not use whatever means possible to stop him… it is what he wants. You shoot him in the head, he doesn’t die, and wallah the anti-christ arrives. Ha ha ha. I am a christian and this gives me the willies. I understand your concern, but sometimes you have to have a little faith. Even if he is a real bad guy, or God-forbid the antichrist. I am going to be okay. He will systematically snuff me and my family out, I will die and go to heaven, and I will return for the only battle that will mean anything. In the meantime, I will not consume my world with petty thoughts such as those that he is a terrorists, dictator, or the ant-christ. For one, They just dont add up, and second they are not your or my worries, but Gods. So relax breathe deeply and take some vallum or something. Evanescent thank you for not saving the trees, I am with you 100% and by the way you gave him way too much of an explanation, he will never get it. Also you didn’t have enough “you know what I means” and “yeah mans” for him to stop and process it.
    In closing I hope you all live carefree, rape the land, pillage the forest, and I am late to go cut a tree to fashion a canoe to ride off into the Alaskan wilderness to hunt wolves with Pallin, so Goodbye.

    I agree with reply 13, I swear he is the only one besides my family and friends that don’t seem brainwashed, and if i say to some obama supporter that obama is evil, they just walk away, not noticing what i had just said, i am still sad about McCain’s loss. I hope someone reads this and understands how less of people actually get how bad obama is. I have so much reasons of why i dislike obama, that my hand would fall off before i could type it. I am still rooting for McCain, not because im racist.

  21. only1 said

    McCain supporters listen, the Anti Christ is said to come out of nowhere, and try to control us. but do not worry, be carefree, just as, i think reply 19 said. we will be safe, and go to heaven, as it says in the bible. and i shall say it again, no worries, live life to the fullest.

  22. only1 said

    God is watching over us, we are safe from harm, you just have to believe.

  23. only1 said

    there is a quote from obama that i dislike ” I may do things that you don’t agree with, but i will try my hardest to MAKE you like me”. If you don’t see what i see in that quote, you must be brainwashed by obama.

    I have noticed that in the last three years many Good Christians and Republicans are slowly speaking out more, But I feel it is to late. Christianity has lost power in America and we and Republicans are being labelled racist, liars and decievers on any writtings or comments we make, While the word of liberals is apparently 100% truth and no man shall dare discredit the word of A liberal. Obama seeks to silence Republican media and talk shows, Thats not democratic and free, thats socialism and totaltarism. In my words he not American and not Christian. He is A pro socialist muslim and A antichrist, (not the antichrist in revelations) And as A Christian I feel we should try to stop and expose him, Yes live A normal care free life. But God does not want us to be earthly useless, When we see evil we should try to expose it.
    Also I am just curious on knowing how many of the people here own guns?. Would you surrender your arms or register them if A law came forcing you to?. The second amendment says we have the right to bear arms, Many people say thats just for revolutionary times. But then if thats so I guess the entire constitution is meant for revolutionary times. The great men who wrote our constitution wrote the constitution for all times, Present and future. Its less discouraging for someone to rob, kill, rape, etc. if you know the person may have gun and can defend himself/herself with A gun. Yes there is much gun crime, but thats largly done by blacks and non Christians, I say America needs more guns and stronger Christian foundation. For we have A new but old enemy to fight, Islam and the many antichrists. Good Day and God Bless. Lewis Jones.

    Also to you peace and God hating liberals, You have A new Fuhre to heil, And he is right here in America. Remember, its customary to salute him and any portraits and photo’s of him.

    As for me, I will try to oppose and expose him to the best of my ability.
