Electing the Enemy – Anti-American Philosophies Underlying Obama’s Policies

Family Security Matters

by LAWRENCE  SELLIN, PHD

The anti-American political philosophies underlying the policies of Barack  Hussein Obama can be defined as the juncture of three ideologies: socialism,  Islam and opportunistic racism to foster resentment among minority groups and  promote race and class conflict as a lubricant for his radical transformation of  the United States.

On face value, there would seem to be no more unlikely an alliance than between Western leftists and Islamists, the latter of whom emphatically and  unambiguously reject virtually everything for which the socialist left has  traditionally professed to stand: the peaceful resolution of international  conflict; respect and tolerance for other cultures and faiths; civil liberties;  freedom of expression; freedom of thought; human rights; democracy; women’s  rights; gay rights; and the separation of church and state.

Not only have socialists proved to possess none of those beliefs, but, as David Horowitz has  noted,  they have been brought together with Islamists by the one  overriding trait they do share — their hatred for the United States; their  belief that our country is the very embodiment of evil on earth and, therefore,  must be destroyed. While Islamic radicals seek to purge the world of heresies  and of the infidels who practice them, leftist radicals seek to purge society’s  collective “soul” of the vices allegedly spawned by capitalism — those being  racism, sexism, imperialism, and greed.

Both socialism and Islam fuse religion and government. In “Sociologie du Communisme” (1949), Jules Monnerot  wrote that communism and by extension socialism combine a secular religion with  the state, while:

“Islam has provided the type of society in which the political and the sacred  are indissolubly merged. The law of the Koran was religious, political, and  civil all in one.”

British philosopher Bertrand Russell, in his “The Practice and Theory of  Bolshevism” (1920), said communists are, like socialists and Islamists,  “religious fanatics,” who are “impervious to evidence and commit intellectual  suicide in the service of an expansionist empire which is striving for world  dominion.”

Both socialists and Islamists, imagine themselves possessing a morally  superior position determined by Allah and historical inevitability,  respectively, which justifies any action or behavior contributing to the goal of  worldwide submission to their agenda.

Just as Islamists attempt to impose their religion on the world in a totalitarian fashion requiring unwavering  obedience, so do radical leftists strive to create an omnipotent socialist state  that will control every aspect of daily life and will enforce a universal brand  of “social justice” on all mankind.

In his brilliant and prescient book, “Radical-in-Chief:  Barack Obama  and the Untold Story of American Socialism,” Stanley Kurtz wrote:

“From his teenage years under the mentorship of Frank Marshall Davis, to his  socialist days at Occidental College, to his life-transforming encounters at New  York’s Socialist Scholars Conferences, to his immersion in the stealthily  socialist community-organizer networks of Chicago, Barack Obama has lived in a  thoroughly socialist world.”

It was, however, Obama’s friendship with Khalid  Abdullah Tariq al-Mansour and his sponsorship of Obama as a prospective  Harvard law student that probably helped harden Obama’s Islamist, leftist,  black-nationalist and anti-American views. It is likely that Obama, while  attending Columbia University, became closely associated with al-Mansour when  the latter was invited to lecture by Obama’s Columbia professor and later  friend, the Yasser Arafat apologist and Israel-hating Edward Said.

 

Formerly known as Donald Warden, al-Mansour,  an American, was a mentor of Black Panther founders Huey Newton and Bobby Seale  in the early 1960s. He changed his name after studying Islam and learning  Arabic. He is well known within the black community as a lawyer, an orthodox  Muslim, a black nationalist, an author, an international deal-maker and an  outspoken enemy of Israel, the United States and white people, in general. His  writings and books are filled with anti-American rhetoric reminiscent of Rev.  Jeremiah “God damn America” Wright, Obama’s disgraced former pastor. Al-Mansour  is a personal advisor to Saudi Arabian Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, the world’s  19th wealthiest person and the individual, who allegedly funded Obama’s Harvard  education.

Alwaleed bin Talal is the Saudi sheik to whom Mayor Rudy Giuliani handed back  his $20 million check in the aftermath of 9/11 because of bin Talal’s  intemperate remarks at the time about American foreign policy.

Many Obama policies seem inexplicable to patriotic Americans because they  often run counter to the interests of the country. They include unsustainable  federal spending, lax border security, a weakened military and the undermining  of individual rights guaranteed by the Constitution.

There are also persistent questions by a growing number of Americans  regarding the extent of Obama’s allegiance to the United   States. Two recent  examples provide fuel for those misgivings.

It has been reported that Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal warned that the kingdom’s  oil-dependent economy is increasingly vulnerable to rising U.S. energy  production. He specifically indicated that the boom in U.S. shale oil and gas  will reduce demand for crude from members of the Organization of the Petroleum  Exporting Countries.

Assuming that bin Talal was indeed the benefactor responsible for financing  Obama’s Harvard education, it would explain Obama’s opposition to the Keystone  pipeline and his refusal to increase oil and gas exploration on federal  lands.

Even more troubling, the recent revelations by CNN’s Jake Tapper regarding the ongoing Benghazi terror attack cover-up and  the analyses found herehere and here suggest that Benghazi was a gunrunning operation to Syria in support of the  Sunni Islamist rebels sponsored by Saudi Arabia and the Muslim Brotherhood. They  are fighting against the government of Bashir Assad buttressed by radical Shi’a  Iran and Hizbullah. In essence, Benghazi was not a terror incident per se, but a  state-sponsored, terrorist-executed attack in retaliation for Obama’s support of  the Sunni-dominated and al Qaeda-infiltrated Syrian rebels.

It is clearly not in the interest of the United States to be a proxy in a war  where both sides are radical Islamists and where either outcome is a losing  proposition for us.

Is there now any doubt why Obama bowed to the king of Saudi   Arabia?

  1. He was NEVER elected…NEVER ELECTED either time.
    The first time he ran, Hillary Clinton won the honor to run as President. I don’t know what tactics were used…but she removed herself to allow him to run.
    There was MASSIVE FRAUD as you know the first and second time.

  2. You have to tend to your own site, so I know that must take up a lot of your time “day and night!”
    When Romney was running, he held a HUGE rally at Red Rock that looked more like a 1960’s Rock Festival than a campaign rally. Cars were lined up for miles just to get in!
    On that same night, Obama had a rally. ONLY 200 People showed up.

  3. My lord, it gets worse every single day………………………………
