This is an excerpt from an essay that will not leave you bored. I'se real curious to see your responses.
"A week after Mr. Obama’s election, it was impossible to exaggerate its impact on the world. That oxen had been slain for feasts in Kenya, and black Americans had cried for joy is fair and normal. But what the descendants of Europa were doing was unique, fascinating and terrible. They were dancing on their own grave in euphoric rapture, by the hundred millions, celebrating their own demise.
There were the leading airheads. For Gordon Brown, “America stands at its own dawn of hope” and St. Obama is about to usher a new age of “progressive multilateralism.” For Madame Sarkozy, the election of Obama was a fount of "immense joy" and hope that the "Obama effect" would reshape French society. For America’s “conservative” President Bush, Obama's win was 'good for our country'.
Journalists, those custodians of facts who are supposed to inform the public, were writing about Mr. Obama, “Some princes are born in palaces. Some are born in mangers. But a few are born in the imagination, out of scraps of history and hope.”
Norway's Aftenposten wrote, "We have great hopes that we are standing at the dawn of a new era." Dominique Moïsi, a senior adviser to the French Institute for International Relations, crowed, “And now we have to think, too, about our identity in France. We realize we are late, and America has regained the torch of a moral revolution.” And Germany upped the ante by electing a Turk as leader of the Green Party, with the MSM hailing it as a “major turning point”.
What is going on here? For the record, I do not believe that there is anything intrinsically wrong with electing a black president in a country whose blacks have a longer tenure on its soil than perhaps 80% of its white population. It depends on who is the black person being elected.
In the case of Barack Obama, from university through election to the US presidency, every step of his career was either arranged for him by, or served to further the cause of, black ultra-racists, black racial shakedown thugs, terrorists, felons, scam-artists, blackmail and economic mayhem organizations (e.g. ACORN), and communists. Just a sample of the names linked irrefutably to the 44th U.S. President includes Saul Alinsky, Frank Marshall Davis, Khalid al-Mansoor, Antoine Rezko, Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, Nadhmi Auchi, Louis Farrakhan, Franklin Raines, and Raila Odinga.
A link to any two such malefactors would have sunk any white presidential candidate in a matter of days. Yet Mr. Obama, coasting on a silver tongue and his blackness, and aided by the imbecility of the opposition party and its candidate, has won the ultimate prize.
Young Americans, says American college professor Paul Kengor, don't care about Obama's radical past, because of the failure of the American educational system to teach the lessons of the Cold War and horrors of communism. “This is especially true of higher education,” writes Kengor, “where the leftist worldview is so extreme and so upside down that America's professors share a hearty contempt not for communism but for anti-communism.”
"...And so, by way of Stockholm and Oslo, we come to the suicide of the West, the Stoslo Syndrome. It can be defined as a hallucinatory delusion that wars, strife, hate, racism and poverty can end by the West’s unilateral capitulation before that part of the world that’s far more bellicose, strife-torn, racist, poorer, primitive, tribal and lawless, but far less developed, educated, tolerant, ENLIGHTENED.
The internal component of this capitulation manifests through the opening of the borders to a stream of what the West used to call “barbarians,” and the transference of empathy, consideration, protection – all expressed through legislation and great sums of the indigenous taxpayer’s money – from the autochthon whites to the foreign invitees.
It’s the Oslo syndrome because the West’s obsession with “diversity and tolerance” is an act of Messianic drunkenness, of mass folly with hardly a precedent in history. It is Oslo when Great Britain shelters jihadis so fanatical that they have been expelled by Saudi Arabia, or refuses to deport a rabid Al-Qaeda mullah for fear he will suffer abuse in a Muslim country asking for his extradition.
