Please bear with me as I set the table, first. Then, we’ll play “Connect the Dots”.
First, there was the story of a precious little Black child praying. He was not praying to God, nor was he having a conversation with our Savior, Jesus Christ.
Oh no. He was praying to President Barack Hussein Obama.
“Barack Obama, thank you for doing everything and all the kind stuff,” the little boy, who identifies himself as Steven, says as he kneels down in typical praying fashion.
“You are good, Barack Obama. You are great and when you get older you will be able to do great things. Love, Steven,” the boy concludes.
Among his sycophantic followers, Obama is is a god. He is “holy”…the object of idolatry…and not to be mocked. Don’t believe me? Read this story:
The Missouri State Fair on Monday imposed a lifetime ban on a rodeo clown whose depiction of President Barack Obama getting charged by a bull was widely criticized by Democratic and Republican officials alike.
The rodeo clown won’t be allowed to participate or perform at the fair again. Fair officials say they’re also reviewing whether to take any action against the Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association, the contractor responsible for Saturday’s event.
The entertainment during the bull riding contest featured a clown wearing a mask of Obama with an upside down broomstick attached to his backside. Spectators were asked if they wanted to see “Obama run down by a bull.” Many in the audience responded enthusiastically.
Numerous Missouri officials denounced the act after video and photos were posted online. Some Democratic Missouri lawmakers suggested Monday that there should be financial consequences for the fair.
The fair said in a written statement announcing the clown’s ban that he had engaged in an “unconscionable stunt” that was “inappropriate and not in keeping with the Fair’s standards.” The fair’s press release did not identify the clown.
Now, this last story may not seem like it goes with the others. However, hold tight. I will explain what I am seeing that connects these three stories, after you read this one:
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. announced Monday that low-level, nonviolent drug offenders with no ties to gangs or large-scale drug organizations will no longer be charged with offenses that impose severe mandatory sentences.
The new Justice Department policy is part of a comprehensive prison reform package that Holder unveiled in a speech to the American Bar Association in San Francisco. He also introduced a policy to reduce sentences for elderly, nonviolent inmates and find alternatives to prison for nonviolent criminals.
Justice Department lawyers have worked for months on the proposals, which Holder wants to make the cornerstone of the rest of his tenure.
“We must face the reality that, as it stands, our system is, in too many ways, broken,” Holder said. “And with an outsized, unnecessarily large prison population, we need to ensure that incarceration is used to punish, to deter and to rehabilitate — not merely to warehouse and to forget.”
“A vicious cycle of poverty, criminality and incarceration traps too many Americans and weakens too many communities,” Holder said Monday. (Excerpts of his prepared remarks were provided Sunday to The Washington Post.) He added that “many aspects of our criminal justice system may actually exacerbate these problems rather than alleviate them.”
It is clear that “too many Americans go to too many prisons for far too long and for no truly good law enforcement reason,” Holder said. “We cannot simply prosecute or incarcerate our way to becoming a safer nation,” he added later in the speech.
Holder is calling for a change in Justice Department policies to reserve the most severe penalties for drug offenses for serious, high-level or violent drug traffickers. He has directed his 94 U.S. attorneys across the country to develop specific, locally tailored guidelines for determining when federal charges should be filed and when they should not.
Now, let’s play “Connect the Dots”.
The leader of the radical socialist Bolshevik movement that toppled the czarist regime in Russia, in 1917, and head of the first government of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (U.S.S.R.), Vladimir Lenin, suffered a stroke in May 1922; a second one, more debilitating, came in March of the following year. This stroke left him mute and ended his political career. When Lenin Died, in Moscow on the evening of January 21, 1924, the Russian people reacted with shock and near-hysterical grief.
The New York Times reported that “it is the general opinion that Lenin’s death will unify and strengthen the Communist Party as nothing else could do. No one who knows them both doubts that Trotsky and Stalin will bury the hatchet over his grave.”
As usual, the New York Times was wrong.Stalin worked quickly to control the situation, encouraging the deification of Lenin, who before his death had called for Stalin s dismissal?while simultaneously working to discredit (and eventually destroy) Trotsky and the rest of his rivals in the Politburo. By 1930, Stalin stood alone at the head of the Soviet state, with all the terrifying machinery Lenin’s revolution had created, at his disposal.
Stalin’s encouragement of the deification Lenin gained him the naive support of the Russian people. Little did they know what they were in for.
Regarding the last story…what better way for Obama to cement himself as the “People’s President”, than to ingratiate himself to those whose “personal pleasure” is of utmost importance to them?
And, what better way to discourage entrepreneurship and work ethic among the populace, setting the stage for the continued advent of a Socialist Utopia?
In conclusion, by playing “Connect the Dots”, with the above stories, one can extrapolate a common thread: All three of them have to do with the direction in which Obama and his Administration wish to take America.
Marx, Lenin, and Stalin would be very proud.
