With so many posts out there on the latest fruit born of Leftism—the University of Missouri situation—I think that it’s necessary to pull back the “camera” to look at the larger destruction going on around us. The following is an excerpt from yet another old post of mine–with edits and more.
Around the right side of the political blogosphere, one can read the posts and comments of many who excoriate President Obama for his “stupidity.” These people don’t get it. Those who look at the Obama Administration’s policies and programs and observe President Obama’s obliviousness and lack of empathy in the face of on-going national crises and, as a result, make a summary low judgment of the president’s intellect do so with the premise that the man really is trying to improve the economy, social and racial conditions in the USA.
That premise is wrong.
This is what people need to realize about destruction: it is the total opposite from building/improving. This seems like an obvious truth, but when comparing the concepts, we must take it further. Construction of anything requires carefully ordered planning and implementation. For example, when constructing a solid, stable building, the architect recommends proven construction methods, using the right materials, and on a solid foundation. But before doing these things, the builder gains certain knowledge of future purpose(s) of the building and, from there, makes his decisions on how to proceed.
Destruction, however, is not only opposite in purpose; it is so in methodology. (We’re talking malicious destruction here.) Using the building analogy again, think of what happens when someone blows up a building—or flies an aircraft into it. Are any orders or rules to be followed for the goal to be achieved? No. In fact, the more chaos perpetrated by malicious destruction, the faster a building disintegrates. The same is true for a nation.
President Obama, the Democrat Party, and whoever sits behind the scenes sow method after method of chaos—and, in some cases, inaction is the chaos sowed. They stab the giant repeatedly, hoping it will finally fall, hoping for utter destruction. And remember this: President Obama is the wrecking-ball, not the wrecker. This began way before he came on the scene. He is merely doing what a century of Gramscian infiltration designed him to do.
