"To classify Obama in political terms is to underestimate his hatred of America. ... The Cloward/Piven Strategy, Rules for Radicals, the looting of American wealth and Keynesian Economics are simply means to an end. The end goal of Obama's spiritual journey is the complete destruction of the nation as created by the Founders. ... We are coming to the realization that we are a nation of sinners in the hands of an angry god-man President. Jonathan Edwards concluded his [14 July 1741] sermon--'Therefore let everyone that is out of Christ, now awake and fly from the wrath to come.' .... This negative belief is exhibited in Obama's statement: 'But the [Warren] Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth, and of more basic issues such as political and economic justice in society.' ... The history of nihilism is both political, and in a thunderingly empty way, deeply spiritual. ... Real-life nihilist Sergei Nechaev (1847-1882) argued that gross immorality of the European monarchies and Catholic Jesuits meant any action could be utilized in the sake of the people's revolution to bring them down. .... In today's culture, the immorality of Nechaev's Catholic Jesuits is now the sin of capitalists, free market economics, or conservatives. ... The president is a democratically elected revolutionist bent on destruction of the nation he serves. .... But fear not because Obama's massive budget is full of government munificence. The angry god-man President will be the overseer in the State's provision for the needy. ... Steeped in the 'new time religion' of Libertation Theology, a derivative of Marxist dialectics, Christ's message of man's restoration with God is contrived into one of social justice for the poor. ... By deftly redirecting the sin of an individual to an idea, the Marxist dialectic materialist argument swallows Judeo/Christian values whole. The State determines sin, as anything not proscribed by the State. As sinners in the hand of an angry President, taxes are now viewed as atoning contributions for the State's collection plate. This inevitably means the Rich and the Capitalists can only receive atonement through State seizure of all private property. ... There is also another insidious destructive activity that has been building for at least two generations involving the insipid acceptance of meaninglessness. ... Years of trivializing the important, while heralding the arcane and vacuous has resulted in a generation and a half that blithely believe in nothing. ... Obama speaks dramatic words for the cameras knowing that those watching him are experiencing him emotionally, not rationally", Nancy Coppock (NC) at The Jackalope's Voice, 14 March 2009, link: http://jackalope.blogspot.com/2009/03/sinners-in-hands-of-angry-president.html.
This piece returns me to fifth grade, reviving less than fond memories. In fifth grade we read then wrote about Jonathan Edwards, "Sinners In the Hands of an Angry God". I remember my teacher, an unabashed Calvinist, saying none of us were members of the elect, we would all go to hell and that went double for the then relatively young Independent Accountant. I doubt she could teach that lesson today. I am not sure Obama is all NC thinks he is. Obama may be a nonidealogical Chicago Pol who goes along to get along. NC's point about Obama's comment on the Supreme Court is well taken. I doubt the Harvard Law School grad knows half, perhaps not a quarter what I do about Constitutional Law. I've said before, Obama would have been intellectually crushed in my fifth grade class. Really.
