Our President, the Marxist

Yah, that's what he is, if one is sagacious enough to judge by the company he kept--and continues to keep.

There was a play about Alinsky put on in Chicago.  The Marxist-in-Chief was one of the panel-members who discussed Alinsky and the play afterwords.

Who else was a panel-member?

Leon Despres: Despres knew Saul Alinsky for nearly 50 years, and together they established the modern concept of “community organizing.” Despres worked with secret Communist and Soviet spy Lee Pressman to support strikers at Republic Steel in Chicago in 1937...

Quentin Young: From 1970 until at least 1992, Quentin Young was active in the Communist Party front organization, the Chicago Committee to Defend the Bill of Rights...

Timuel Black: An icon of the Chicago left, Black was originally denied officer training because military intelligence claimed he had secretly joined the Communist Party. Black also worked closely with the Socialist Party in the 1950s...

Roberta Lynch: A leading member of Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) and a leader of the radical Marxist New American Movement (NAM)...

....and Studs Terkel, generously described as a running dog.

That's only the beginning of the Saga of Barack Hussein Obama.

You know, for being in the center of the political universe, as NPR put it yesterday, Ohio seems pretty unconcerned. It really did not seem like a big deal at all: I saw only one campaign sign (“Newt 2012″), and only about 20% of the electorate showed up for this much-hyped election, about half of those who participated in the 2008 primary. I saw only two pieces of mail promoting a candidate (Santorum), though I am told if you watched TV that Romney’s ads were all over the place, mostly attacking Santorum (Romney spent over 12 million her, about 12 times what Santorum spent; a lot of money for a slim lead). And when I ventured into the fever swamps of talk radio, as I do sometimes when I am driving, Romney’s anti-Santorum ads predominated. Most of these were funded by the Super PAC that does his dirty work for him (lampooned hilariously by Steve Corbert).

Mr Santorum spent election eve, appropriately, in Steubenville, home not only of one of the nation’s most inbred conservative Catholic ghettos, but of a lot of white working class folks, the sort of people Santorum is trying to appeal to, based pretty much on image (“my grandfather was a miner”) rather than substance (he’s another corporate shill, albeit with a folksy image). Listening to conservative Catholic talk show host Al Kresta, his callers were overwhelmingly for Santorum; no surprise there, as Santorum reflects the Catholic right with all its selective orthodoxy and its nationalism.

For the rest of us, there is little reason for hope. We are almost certainly in for another four years of Obama. The only thing worse than this might be whichever hairball the GOP ends up coughing up and calling a candidate.

The only good thing about all this is that no one who strives for moral consistency, who sees that this nation is in decline and fall mode, is likely to confuse any earthly kingdom with the reign of Christ. The bad thing is that right wing Catholics are likely to see Santorum as the Anointed, and that so many non-Catholics also see him as the hyper-Catholic.

It is probably too much to hope that the American bishops will clarify this misunderstanding.

Lord have mercy on our poor nation. I know, in many ways we deserve exactly what we are going to get, but personally I always feel sorry for the suffering, even when they bring it on themselves.

Here my response.

Psalms 91

You who dwell in the shelter of the Most High,
who abide in the shade of the Almighty,

Say to the LORD, “My refuge and fortress,
my God in whom I trust.”

He will rescue you from the fowler’s snare,
from the destroying plague,

He will shelter you with his pinions,
and under his wings you may take refuge;
his faithfulness is a protecting shield.

You shall not fear the terror of the night
nor the arrow that flies by day,

Nor the pestilence that roams in darkness,
nor the plague that ravages at noon.

Though a thousand fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
near you it shall not come.

You need simply watch;
the punishment of the wicked you will see.

Because you have the LORD for your refuge
and have made the Most High your stronghold,

No evil shall befall you,
no affliction come near your tent.

For he commands his angels with regard to you,
to guard you wherever you go.

With their hands they shall support you,
lest you strike your foot against a stone.

You can tread upon the asp and the viper,
trample the lion and the dragon.

Because he clings to me I will deliver him;
because he knows my name I will set him on high.

He will call upon me and I will answer
I will be with him in distress
I will deliver him and give him honor.

With length of days I will satisfy him,
and fill him with my saving power.
