Going through email these days takes an inordinate amount of time as my email gets cluttered with the latest pizza offers from the local pizza shop, confirmation of orders for clothes and books placed online and the various forwarding of snippets from family and friends. However, every once in a while, an email is received that sparks my interest leading me on a search for more information as it compels me to write about it. That one email arrived today.
It was sent to me by a beloved family member and contained an interesting essay. Maureen Scott penned this essay in March 2013. Ms. Scott has authored 7 essays that appear on RenewAmerica.com. The essay, The Architect of Destruction, describes her view on Obama. In a previous article, I described Obama as "an empty suit giving 'collar service' to the very foundation of America." Ms. Scott, in her thorough examination of this man, pinpoints the "why" behind this emptiness.
She describes Obama as "a tormented man who is filled with resentment, anger, and disdain for anyone of an opinion or view other than his. He acts in the most hateful, spiteful, malevolent, vindictive ways in order to manipulate and maintain power and control over others. Perhaps because, as a child, he grew up around family members and mentors who instilled him with an abiding bitterness toward the U.S."
Various media reports have indicated Obama was raised by his grandparents, who were communists, and frequently took the young Obama to visit Frank Marshall Davis, a staunch communist. It's easy to see where the emptiness originated. When a young child is exposed to negative role models who fill the mind with hate and ignore filling the heart with love, there is little wonder that hate would migrate from mind to heart. One never hears of this man being exposed to God, Jesus Christ or even the love of parents or grandparents; it seems his life was all about the indoctrination.
Of course the left liberal Obama supporting Kool-Aid drinkers will yell "racist" when anything negative is said about their "dear ruler," but Ms. Scott pegged the problem with the man sitting in the Oval Office very well. She wrote, "It is not the color of his skin that is a problem – for anyone in America. Rather it is the blackness that fills his soul and the hollowness in his heart where there should be abiding pride and love for this country."
It has been discovered that Obama spent time as a child in Indonesia as his mother's husband, a man name Soetoro, moved the family there. Indonesia has a majority of individuals who practice Islam. This exposure to an egregious totalitarian political system masquerading as a religion was in total opposition to the American traditions and principles. One picture that has circulated shows Obama's mother wearing the Islam head covering – hajib. Even though it has been reported the young Obama attended a Catholic administered school, the school accepted individuals of different denominations and faiths. Without any true guidance, a young child will absorb any ideology that presents itself: some not for the better.
Away from this country as a young child, Obama didn't delight in being part of America and its greatness. He wasn't singing our patriotic songs in kindergarten, or standing on the roadside for a holiday parade and eating a hot dog, or lighting sparklers around a campfire on July 4th as fireworks exploded over head, or placing flags on the gravesites of fallen and beloved American heroes.
Rather Obama was separated from all of these experiences. He doesn't really understand us and what it means to be an American. He is void of the basic emotions that most feel regarding this country and is insensitive to the instinctive pride we have in our national heritage. His opinions were formed by those who either envied us or wanted him to devalue the United States and the traditions and patriotism that unite us.
In looking at Obama's presidency, Ms. Scott provided a nice summation:
Obama has never given a speech that is filled with calm, reassuring, complimentary, heartfelt statements about all the people in the U.S. Or one that inspires us to be better, grateful, and proud that, in a short time, our country became a leader, and a protector of so many. Quite the contrary, his speeches always degenerate into mocking, ridiculing tirades as he faults our achievements, along with any of his critics, all for the sake of a laugh, or to bolster his ego. He uses his Office to threaten and create fear while demeaning and degrading anyone who opposes his policies and actions. Unlike a secure leader, who has noble self-esteem and not false confidence, Obama displays a cocky, haughty attitude and a dread of being critiqued.
Mostly, his time seems to be spent causing dissention, unrest, and anxiety among the people rather than uniting us (even though he was presented to us as the "Great Uniter"). He creates chaos for the sake of keeping citizens separated, envious, aggrieved and ready to argue. Under his leadership Americans have been kept on edge, rather than in a state of comfort and security. He incites people to be aggressive toward, disrespectful of, and retaliate against those of differing backgrounds and views. Through such behavior, Obama has lowered the standards for self-control and mature restraint to the level of rowdy, street-fighting gangs. When, instead, he should be raising the bar for people to strive toward becoming more considerate, tolerant, self-disciplined, self-sustaining, and self-assured.
Not a day goes by that he is not attempting to defy our laws, remove our rights, over-ride established procedures, install controversial appointees, enact divisive mandates, and assert a dictatorial form of power.
- Never has there been a leader of this great land who used such tactics to harm and hurt the people and this country.
- Never have we had a President who spoke with a caustic, evil tongue against the citizenry rather than present himself as a soothing, calming, and trustworthy force.
- Never, in this country, have we experienced how much stress one man can cause a nation of people – on a daily basis!
Obama has promoted the degeneration of peace, civility, and quality of cooperation between us. He thrives on tearing us down, rather than building us up. He is the Architect of the decline of America, and the epitome of a Demagogue.
It has amazed many that the American people elected this man, not once, but twice, to hold the highest office in America. The nomination of this man started with controversy as his eligibility to run and hold office was questioned and remains as the issue has not been settled. He has worked tirelessly to destroy America; it is seen in every action, speech and mannerism. Since re-election, he has stepped up the march to destroy America. His supporters, the left liberals and the enemedia have called those who seek to restore the values and principles upon which this country was founded as "racists, bigots, and haters of government" while looking through their government bought and paid for rose-colored glasses.
To all those referenced, I respond:
If being a racist means that I am against tyranny, oppression, man-made abolishing of God-given rights and dictatorship, YES, I am racist. If being a bigot means that I am against being forced to practice a religion other than one of my choosing, YES, I am a bigot. If being a hater means I am against a government who operates outside of its enumerated powers, YES, I am a hater.
However, I ask "Who are the real racists, bigots and haters, people like me or those who stand for everything I am against?"
