Last weekend, Hurricane Irene swept across the eastern shores of this country, leaving flooding in its wake. Millions of residents were left without power, the transportation networks in many cities were stymied. In future days and weeks, the public and municipal leaders will no doubt cry out for help from the federal government in repairing their infrastructure after the floods subside.
This unanticipated pressure will further unbalance this leaderless country. The president was forced to cancel his vacation, not because he considered his presence in D.C. vital, but because the hurricane threatened his safety at a precarious oceanfront estate. Obama’s speech to the nation outlining his solution to the jobless dilemma, only two and one half years too late, is scheduled sometime in September. We are, in effect, a nation in crisis. Anything untoward can upset the apple cart.
This is the atmosphere where radicals and revolutionaries are at home. This is where they flourish, finding it easy to stir the pot of discontent and create havoc. On September 17th, 2011, we will have a glimpse of what they are planning in the short term.
Add to this recipe for disaster, the 2012 presidential election and Obama’s declining popularity numbers. The latest polls show him at 39 percent, and this without even a Republican opponent on the horizon. What better diversionary tactic than civil unrest and insurrection?
“What we do not need now is change! What we do need now is a leader with charisma and experience!” they will cry. The Republican contender will be hooted down, his/her speeches disrupted by the service employees international union (SEIU), ACORN and teacher union thugs. The tea party will be vilified and candidates such as Congressman Allen West will be accused of any and all crimes against humanity.
The street rioting that Chicago, Philadelphia, Cleveland and Germantown, Md., experienced can be replicated very easily by community activists. The selection by the Democrat-controlled MSNBC of Al Sharpton as one of its premier commentators is no accident. He is a professional agitator, having allegedly initiated the murderous Brooklyn riots in Crown Heights and the fatal arson of Freddie’s Clothing store in Harlem. He is capable of anything that smacks of hate and unrest. If it involves thuggery, he is your man.
The charge made by Democrat Congressional Black Caucus member Andre Carson, claiming that Tea Party members want to hang blacks from trees indicates a willingness for some Democrats to utilize fear and hate in order to stir up certain communities not only to go to the polls but to create conditions of chaos leading to civil unrest and disorder.
We must watch, very carefully, the machinations of the radical left as it plans to reinstall Obama in next year’s election. We must listen to and expose radicalism wherever it exists. Public exposure should be our tactic.
The future of our beloved country rests in the balance during the next 14 months.
