Obama’s Loyalty Failure

After much reflection, I have figured out the real problem that plagues the anointed one. For those of you that are new here, I mean Barack Obama. I was watching a movie the other day about Geronimo. Robert Duvall plays an Army scout, who is adamantly dedicated to protecting the settlers. One of the Army officers is ambivalent about the mission, and Duvall’s character takes him to task for it. Duvall tells him, “Your problem is that you don’t love the people you’re fighting for, and you don’t hate the people you’re fighting against.” And that, in a pithy nutshell, is Obama’s problem.

Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, won’t use the word “terrorism,” preferring the Orwellian “man-made disasters.” Unless, of course, she is referring to returning vets. The administration rushes in to Mirandize terrorists, and insists they be given civilian trials. Nidal Hasan is explained away as depressed or bipolar. It took months of hectoring before Obama would use the word “war” to describe our position on terrorism. How many remember that Obama declared that the U.S. is not a Christian nation? And his infamous malaprop that in terms of raw number, the U.S. was the second largest muslim country in the world.

Now comes Harry Knox. Knox, a sodomy rights activist, has claimed that the Pope hurts people in the name of Jesus. This is in response to the Pope’s call for responsible morality to battle the AIDS crisis in Africa. The irony is that Knox is a member of Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships. One can only hope that Obama picked him for his belief in neighborhoods, because his virulent anti-Catholicism makes me wonder about the faith-based part.

Add to that the continuing dispute over Dawn Johnsen, the anointed one’s pick to head the Office of Legal Counsel. Johnsen is a staunchly pro-abortion activist. Among the most extreme cases of Johnsen’s legal advocacy for abortion involved her crusade to strip the U.S. Catholic Church of tax-exempt status over its pro-life activism. United States Catholic Conference v. Abortion Rights Mobilization went to the Supreme Court, where the Catholic bishops won their case. Johnsen, however, was then hired by NARAL to be their legal director.

The issue is really this: Barack Obama detests western Christendom and the civilization sprung from it. Western European civilization is responsible for America. It is, after all, out of England that we are sprung. But not just England; France, Spain, Italy, Germany, all the European countries that played a part in developing universities, hospitals, orphanages, and public education. The peoples that gave the world chivalry, courtly love, and the rights of man.  We look as far back as ancient Greece for the inspiration for our government. All of western civilization is aimed at one thing: the dignity of the individual, and his capacity for self-governance.

He, however, is a cheerleader for Islam. In his address at Cairo, he said, “partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t. And I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.” As we can see by his appointments of Knox and Johnsen, his responsibility to fight against negative stereotypes doesn’t cover Catholicism. He went on to say, “So let there be no doubt: Islam is a part of America.”

One is first struck by his demand for a partnership between America and Islam. Islam is a religion; well, actually a politico-religious movement. America is a country. How does one partner a country and a religion? And where are the loud separationists demanding no entanglement between the two?

Secondly, I was perplexed by his statement that fighting negatives stereotypes was the president’s responsibility. I searched and searched the constitution of the U.S. and couldn’t find this anywhere. And yet, the anointed one was a “constitutional law professor!”

I was also curious about his insistence that “islam is a part of America.” In an era that continues to demonize Catholic participation in politics, I pray for the day Obama makes the same assertion for Christianity, a religion practiced by the overwhelming majority of Americans.

From his anti-catholic appointments, to his insistence that we are too stupid to understand his policies, Obama has made it clear that he doesn’t love the people he’s fighting for, and he doesn’t hate the people he’s fighting against.
