This becomes more serious by the hour.....

     The elite observers and the sophisticated scoff at us, the lowly ones, because they know us as conservatives and traditionalists.  Therefore, they are certain that we are bigots, xenophobes, and all the other convenient things they wish to call us.   It makes them feel better about themselves.
     But the fact is, we who count ourselves among the intellectual, pseudo-intellectual, anti-intellectual and rural/traditionalist thinkers who eschew socialism in favour of liberty.  We  certainly are not what the progressive elites would like to think us to be, or like to pigeon-hole us as.
    We have all long since concluded that the entire leftist and progressive cohort of the political class in the American Republic is consciously committed to the task of reducing this Republic to a septically-challenged, graffitied, hell-hole.   It is their quest to achieve this goal so as to "teach America a lesson".
     Most of us fervently believe and know that Obama, Valerie, and Company...along with all their foundation  backers and straight-thinking celebrities such as Barbra Streisand and Al Gore....know full well the result of the establishment of a socialist, welfare state system, increasingly overrun by people from outside the country who have no hope of ever being self-supporting.   They know it  will lead to the ruin of the nation.    This accomplishment would bring them joy and trembling anticipation, when they consider how many American flags they could trample upon, dancing in glee.
     Michelle Obama's cynical commencement address the other day showed the eternal, vitriolic, snarling of a hypocrite who has everything and still complains because she got a raw deal out of life.  She did not inspire the student body of Tuskegee to do much beyond feel sorry for Michelle first, and then feel sorry for themselves.....although they were graduating from an Institution and walking the grounds of a place that had been venerated in life by none other than Booker Tecumseh Washington who was also famous from speaking, but coherently.  To wit:
     “There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”
     Some Negroes, like some Whites, love to wallow in self-pity and remember every offense, real or imagined suffered during a difficult, unfair life, even while others of both groups prefer to assume the role of Jonathon Livingston Seagull, spreading their wings and flying to new heights of fulfilment and excellence.  Yous pays yer dime and yous takes yer choice!
     Barry and Michelle, fighting tooth and nail to prevent other Negroes from accessing private or better quality schools, still send their children to be educated where they will not be sullied and defiled by contact with the hoi polloi.   And even as they do that, Barry and his government move to continue the flooding of America with the kind of people who are unlike the colonial types and the immigrant types of times past.   The fomenting of police - community conflict, the establishment of socialised medicine, the constant harping about racial unfairness and imbalance, the asinine fixation on something called "income inequality", all feed into something purposefully designed to fundamentally transform America into something worse....much worse.  And one of the crowning examples is this State Department refugee prioritisation.  To wit:

     [Also inappropriate, it seems, is the resettling of the most vulnerable Assyrian Christians in the United States. Donors in the private sector have offered complete funding for the airfare and the resettlement in the United States of these Iraqi Christians that are sleeping in public buildings, on school floors, or worse. But the State Department – while admitting 4,425 Somalis to the United States in just the first six months of FY2015, and possibly even accepting members of ISIS through the Syrian and Iraqi refugee program, all paid for by tax dollars, told Dobbs that they “would not support a special category to bring Assyrian Christians into the United States.”

    The United States government has made it clear that there is no way that Christians will be supported because of their religious affiliation, even though it is exactly that – their religious affiliation – that makes them candidates for asylum based on a credible fear of persecution from ISIS. The State Department, the wider administration, some in Congress and much of the media and other liberal elites insist that Christians cannot be given preferential treatment. Even within the churches, some Christians are so afraid of appearing to give preferential treatment to their fellow Christians that they are reluctant to plead the case of their Iraqi and Syrian brothers and sisters.]

     This above being a summary borrowed from the very fine commentary of Alex Haley's blog THE ANGLICAN CURMUDGEON ( ) whose latest posting disassembles the posturing of both the United States government under Obama and various of the Church denominations thought of as "mainstream", including our own Episcopal Church  of the United States.
    It is, by their determination an excellent idea to allow Muslims to crowd in, then send for their relatives, while establishing themselves in sub-cities, showing little or no interest in American communitarianism.   A few years go by, and then honour murders, pressure cooker bombs, Army-post mass shootings, and addiction to facebook manifestos and calls to jihad against the Sons of Satan begin in earnest, as we have already seen, repeatedly.
  We are already approaching that point where Europe now is....hostage to socialism and Muslim social-psychosis....and it could only be a purposeful thing on the part of the progressives.

     Please visit the entire article by the Anglican Curmudgeon.  His disassembly of the this madness, while depressing, is crisp, succinct, and devastating to any argument about "fairness" or "human rights".
     Now, the ancient yeoman's prayer must be invoked, for I have railed forth for far too long.   So I close with, "Lord fill my mouth with worthwhile stuff, and shut it when I have said enough."
