Yesterday, President Obama was in full Marxist mode at a Catholic-Evangelical Leadership Summit on Overcoming Poverty at Georgetown University.
Obama took pot shots at hedge fund manages because they make more money than kindergarten teachers.
Has it ever occurred to Obama that kindergarten teachers freely choose their profession? Just as hedge fund managers choose what they do.
Obama is so ignorant he doesn’t even know that hedge funds and their managers are in big trouble. It’s become common knowledge that simple index funds are a far better investment for capital. Hedge funds are wildly expensive and too often their exotic mathematical models are just dead wrong.
Obama never uses words like liberty, choice, family or faith. His world is divided into rich and poor, black and white. And he has contempt for anyone who refuses to see the world through his calcified 19th century Marxist model.
Obama also attacked political opponents who, he claimed, are ideologically “against government.”
Is he talking about the leftist rioters in Baltimore? Or the leftist rioters of the 60’s who burned down city after city? Is he talking about the radical campus Marxists who demonize America with every lecture?
No, he’s talking about Constitutional Conservatives who believe, like the founders, that big, centralized government is a threat to liberty and free enterprise.
You see, Obama believes that those who are on the bottom rung of the economic ladder are more noble than those who are more successful. According to Obama’s incoherent Marxist doctrine, if you work and strive and achieve a measure of success it’s because you stole or built your enterprise on the backs of the poor. This is classic Marxism which sees free enterprise as a natural outgrowth of medieval feudalism.
And of course, Obama demonized Fox News. He doesn’t like the way they report on poverty.
But Obama’s ugly attacks on Fox News are a case study in the ideology of the scapegoat. It’s the classic manner in which all demagogues deflect from their own failures and inadequacies by blaming an innocent party.
For the left, the favorite scapegoat has always been the Jewish people. We were demonized as stateless cosmopolitans. Now that Israel, the Jewish state exists, we are demonized because we have a state. You see how it works. Heads I win, tails you lose.
Obama knows the leftist playbook intimately because his entire life, his entire political career, has been crafted by the hard left, by the Jew-haters who have molded every nuance of Obama’s ideology.
So: Fox is the problem. And Fox is Obama’s Jews.
And it must be isolated, demonized, and destroyed.
