The least American President of my lifetime announced his candidacy for re-election today. That he made this threat so obliquely (i.e., with no actual statement made to our faces) may speak to his own recognition of the absurdity and essential cowardice of his leadership. Or it could just be his usual level of presumptuousness.
But on this very same day, Obama also sent his racist attorney general out to announce (obliquely, as is the fashion) that their policy of trying Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and other Islamofascist murderers in civilian criminal court (and in NYC, natch!) was wrong all along and that they will instead be tried at Guantanamo Bay in a military court. As they should have been. All along.
Where, then, are the consequences of this craven reversal? Nowhere. Obama won’t be made to answer for such an inside-baseball issue among the vast majority of his supporters because it was never anything more than the moral preening of incoherent ideologues. Foreign-born mass murderers (and a few merely treasonous ones) have rights under our Constitution? And that trying them in civilian criminal court would somehow mark a triumph for American Justice? What asshole delusions! Obama and other post-Americans who think like him spent so much time agreeing with the Islamofascists that Guantanamo Bay was indeed the very center of American brutality and abuse of the Religion of Peace that they were compelled to abandon trying these bastards as war criminals in favor of a cruel circus in Manhattan that not even the wretched hack Chuck Schumer could abide. Obama’s opposition to Guantanamo was crap from start to finish because it was just him trying to square his campaign rhetoric with the hard reality of doing his job of protecting us.
So, hippies, is the prospect of Hope and Change v.2.0 enough to make you overlook Obama’s lack of principles yet again? He probably thought so —and has put your idolatry to the test again.
