Obama, George Mitchell, And Fresh Palestinian Doom
The extraordinary Obama! Not a week in, and it looks like he’s already pooched the Middle East for the remainder of his current term. Let’s see how we get there.
It all begins with the lefty bigotry of low expectations. You know, Arabs and blacks and poor people and whoever else is acting up, just can’t help themselves. That’s a mighty convenient position, since it neatly categorizes, absolves, and damns whole swaths of people. Also handy, since it makes such groups the objects the target of BigGov largesses and do-goodery.
Remember: a ‘progressive’ is always looking to do something to other people for their own good. Gabillions have been spent in such projects, often causing and perpetuating and rewarding segregation, an underclass, and resentment.
Comes The O
Whether Obama himself is a good thing, that a partly black man has become leader of the U.S. is a challenge the Great Society green-stamps, fatherlessness and ‘why bother’ culture in which Democrats have been pleased to keep their pocket-voters over the last 40 years. The equivalent in Canada would be the Maritime provinces: kept in debt by past Liberal leaders, so that Ottawa could keep them afloat with big-project spending– so as to curry the proper votes. Shaidle asks “Can Obama heal the rift between black men and black women?” The Rift: created, paid for, and cultivated by do-gooders on the Left and the Right for 45+ years.
