The King of Cool
July 30, 2010
I see that an academic study has found that 33 percent of Americans under the age of 30 prefer socialism and 30 percent are undecided.
According to the Fund for American Studies (TFAS), these younger Americans don’t really understand what socialism really is, nor do they understand much of anything.
It seems that the word is out there that it is “cool” to believe in socialism.
Note the adjective cool. What is cool? What does it mean to be cool? Is it good? Is it bad? Is it anything that has a definitive characteristic?
In the tragic election of 2008, the brand new candidate on the American political stage was considered cool too. His name is Barack Hussein Obama.
Obama was tall and lean and adopted the Soviet style of applauding the audience while they were applauding him. He affected an avuncular expression and pretended he was wise beyond his years and his experience.
He never seemed to lose his “cool” and that is what made him seem so cool, calm and collected.
Yes, cool. Above all, cool. He was cool when the truth of what went on in his black church where his pastor and friend of 20 years flat out said he damned the United States of America!
What Jeremiah Wright, the fiery pastor is really saying, and indeed we all heard it with our own ears because the video tape was played on television was, “God Damn White America!”
But, the average person did not want to acknowledge that. We were more comfortable pretending we didn’t get the full meaning of Pastor Wright’s message.
And, before Americans were able to digest the chillingly ugly tone of the pastor’s screed and focus on the fact that the man who wanted to be the next president of the United States was listening to this ugly, hateful diatribe for 20 years . . . along came Hillary Clinton to the rescue.
No, she didn’t come to the rescue of Barack Hussein Obama on purpose. Logic would tell you that would be the last thing she would want to do.
After all, she and Barack were contesting each other for the Democrat nomination. So, how did the former first lady come to save Obama from the destruction to his candidacy?
She told a stupid lie! She told an audience that when she was in Serbia during the war in Kosovo, as they were getting off the airplane, they were told they should duck because snipers were firing weapons and bullets were whizzing over their heads.
That did not happen except in Hillary Clinton’s mind. She thought somehow it would make her heroic and people would be moved to vote for her!
Needless to say, the mainstream media was only too happy to focus on Mrs. Clinton being exposed as a liar and thus the person they wanted to be the 44th president was spared the negative image which might have derailed his campaigning, as well as the left-wing loons who wanted Mr. Cool to be the president of the United States.
I have only touched on the tragedy of the 2008 election, but the worst is yet to come.
When you have millions of young Americans so ignorant because they are more concerned with Brad Pitt, Lindsay Lohan and the rest of decadent Hollywood than they are about their own future, it is no wonder 33 percent of Americans under the age of 30 prefer socialism. And remember, thirty percent were undecided.
Heaven help us because we won’t help ourselves!
