I have come to the conclusion our elites just don’t get it. I conclude it is a case of arrogance, or blindness, or sheer ignorance on their part. I also think the true reason they loathe Donald Trump is they think he is a traitor from their own class. It is not just what Trump says; it is the fact he says it at all. FDR was also viewed as a traitor by his fellow aristocrats.
The reality of our new war with Militant Islam can no longer be denied. Yet, our elite are still ranting the PC mantras with no apology. The elite refuse to make any serious effort to improve with border security. The elite refuses to make any effort at all to deal with the hordes of Muslim refugees pouring over our borders, or being brazenly flown into the USA and scattered like confetti at a parade. It is an insane policy. The elite don’t care.
Even by the low standards of Obama, his behavior on this trip to Cuba and Argentina has been unusually strange. It is bad enough for Obama to make nice with an unrepentant Raul and Fidel Castro. It is even worse to make no demands for any type of serious reform in Cuba; yet, go there and engage in folly and fantasy. The political dissidents Raul Castro arrested were not impressed when Obama went to a baseball game and did the wave with his new friends. We now have sold out to both Iran and Cuba. In return for this sell out, Obama has accomplished nothing at all, other than to make a fool of himself, further degrade the “full faith and credit,” of the USA government, and finally, make our enemies laugh at us. Obama’s legacy will be a nation further in debt, bitterly divided along race and class lines, and held in contempt by both our friends and our enemies.
The Roman historians I have read say the story of Caesar Nero playing the flute, or harp or whatever musical instrument it was, while Rome burned is false. We have lost most of Tacitus’s written history of the Nero era. It breaks off at book 66, yes, I know, so the last years of his reign are blank. What we do know is he was clearly unsuited to be the leader of Rome; we know that Obama is clearly unsuited to our leader. The last 7 years have proven again and again this statement to be true beyond any reasonable doubt. Personally, I think future historians, if there are any, will be brutal on the American Republic, its leaders; especially, its populace. Obama doesn’t exist in a vacuum. He was elected twice. He is even now the choice of between one third and one half of all Americans. The fact he is a self-indulgent fool, lazy, not very smart, and prone to taking foreign trips that resemble the Imperial procession of despots, is all part of his charm to his Obamabot supporters.
Still, in the context of the ISIS terror attacks in both Belgium and France, his doing to wave at a baseball game in Cuba, or dancing the Tango in Argentina, is a sign of decay and folly. I don’t know if Nero ever really did fiddle while Rome burned. I do know Obama danced the night away while Belgium burned. Perception is reality. Illusion is now substance. When Obama struts out on the global stage, much like a peacock waving its tail plume and shrieking loudly, the rest of the world now laughs at him. The problem for the rest of us Americans is when they laugh at Obama, they laugh at us.
