Some Questions About the messiah
By Carl Langley
posted August 22, 2008
GUEST COLUMN – It is time for some
commentary that will serve as a guide for those of you who will be
heading out to vote in November. So, I draw your attention to Barack
Obama, a mystery nominee for the nation’s highest office if there ever
Barack Obama, if you believe the national news media, the scores of
radical Internet websites, the New Age crazies and a wide assortment of
political action committees, is the new Messiah, a man who has come out
of nowhere to save us all.
Let me confess that I was among the multitude taken by surprise when
Barack arose from the mists as the Chosen One. It was a shock to me me
because I have long made American political history a large part of my
leisure and work time pursuits.
I also confess to have never known any Baracks and any Obamas in my
entire lifetime, but I have made diligent effort to track down these
names and see if by chance they fit anyone I have ever known.
The answer is NOPE!
Barack Obama is a newcomer to national politics, having served only a
brief time in the Illinois and U.S. Senates. There are pages in both of
those houses who may have been there longer than Barack.
Obama was inserted into office by the Chicago political machine, an
outfit that has probably voted more dead people than any other
organization in the history of mankind, and, some say, accounted for
more dead people who didn’t toe the party line..
In Chicago any politician of any standing owes his political success to
an outfit that dates back to the 1920s reign of Big Bill Thompson.
That, for those deficient in history, was also known as the Al Capone
“You go along to get along,” has long been the slogan of those holding
offices in Chicago. A Chicago job description includes allegiance to
the party bosses as one of the first rules, if not the first rule.
My research into Obama took me even deeper into the political sewer
than Chicago politics and led me to find that his background includes
association with some of the most unsavory people ever to walk among
the good citizens of this nation.
I could name quite a few, but for the purpose of brevity, I take up
only one of them at this time. This man’s background is so dreadful, a
person with a background so violent and corrupt, he is the symbol for
those who have clamored around Barack and climbed onto the bandwagon.
His name is William Ayers. He became familiar to national law
enforcement in the 1960s when he and his cohorts tried to destroy the
very foundations of this country. Ayers and assorted other trash had
their own way toi protest the Vietnam war: they blew up government
buildings, staged armed robberies and brutalized citizens.
Sometimes we get lucky in dealing with people like that. About four of
the gang that terrorized the country were taken from out midst when a
bomb they were making in a basement exploded and killed the vermin. The
others were soon caught.
Who says there is no God?
Ayers, a self-taught a terror master and creator of general mayhem,
finally was caught and brought up on federal charges of bomb making and
terrorism, but he beat the rap on a technicality. Chalk one up there
A reasonable person would assume that Ayers, after escaping what could
have been a life jail sentence, did not slink away into anonymity. He
got a couple of college degrees and landed a job teaching English in a
The man that Barack said was one of his mentors sits there to this day,
spreading his hatred of this country and bemoaning the fact he was not
able to blow up more buildings than he did.
Barack’s claiming of Ayers as one of his mentors has drawn gasps from
some (mainly old fashioned folks like me who believe in law and order
and changing our leadership at the ballot box) and applause from others
(mainly liberal professors who have wormed their way into the highest
halls of learning in this country)
Today the faculties at too many of our universities and colleges are
overrun with a bunch of creeps who are easily recognized. That’s
because they spend most of the classroom time condemning this country
and denouncing the Constitution.
Today’s engineering, law, medicine and economics students, whose
parents have to fork over tuition payments well into the five digits,
are being fed a steady diet of political indoctrination at the expense
of the heavy doses of learning they will need to build careers.
People like Ayers and his friends are world class losers who would
starve to death in the private sector, but they remain determined to
turn what once was the greatest nation on the face of the earth into
another dreary communist swamp where all things are gray and morose.
I am not a John McCain fan, but I will be voting for him in November.
In doing so I will be voting not for myself but for the future of my
children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. I shudder at what will
befall them if Obama is elected president.
I am fearful of a nation where someone like William Ayers can end up as
Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare, or perhaps Director of
Homeland Security, or perhaps Secretary of State, or perhaps Director
of the FBI or CIA.
I don’t take these thoughts lightly because I had never heard of Barack
Obama until he walked out of the political swamps of Chicago with his
mantra of “Hope and Change.”
Hope for What? Change to What? We all have heard the words, but where
is the substance? Where is the expansion of those words into deeper and
more meaningful language?
If I recall, the oath of office as president calls upon the president
to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution, this nation and its
people. I wonder what Barack and his buddies have in store for us
should he get elected?
