Yes America, we are at war or at the very least Radical Islamic Jihadists are at war with us.
War is not always a choice and it can take many forms. I'm reluctant to accept the collection of definitions assigned to the word "Jihad." I recognize the definition of Jihad as intended by Radical Islamic Jihadist; An "all- out war against non-believers, those who do not believe in Islam. In much the same tenor America is amid its own ideological war between Progressive Leftist ideology and a conservative America centric construct. The "non- believers" in our American political war are condescendingly identified as those who do not believe in Liberalism. This war has been with us since our founders rejected the Old World's ancient failed ideals choosing to fight and die for the revolutionary future of the New World instead. Many Americans feel that we are fighting a domestic sociopolitical war that has been thrust upon them to some degree by external global Leftist forces. To the American Left, Liberalism is religion. Fanatical allegiance to Liberalism's ever expanding tenet of political correctness is the first step toward enlisting in a type of political death cult for America.
These are strange days indeed for the political and media elites who dominate our political landscape. They are barely able to sufficiently self-medicate with the combination of prescription and/or illegal drugs and rivers of alcohol that flow through their lavish Washington DC. three martini lunches paid for with hard earned American taxpayer money. They just can't accept that average working Americans may actually have something to do with choosing our next president. This disconnect with the American electorate is further exacerbated by the fact that our president, Secretary of State and Democrat Party presidential candidates have been reduced to useless world news anchors with little or no influence regarding the global events on which they comment. They simply restate news events, pat themselves on the back for being champions of the people and state that there is "more work to do." Without fail we are also subjected to the time honored contemptuous caveat of "that's not who we are" combined with accusations of rampant xenophobia as a means to cultivate collective guilt lest we stray from their Leftist values. Guilt is the inexhaustible currency of Liberals and Progressives.
Europe's decades long immersion into Leftist policy has been allowed to flourish under the umbrella of NATO and American military protection which is funded considerably by the American taxpayer. This embrace of Liberalism and abdication of military responsibility by many European countries has beckoned radical Jihadism to their door step and now into their living rooms. As a result Europe's global Leftist ideology is threatening the American homeland. I believe that America is on the verge of a constitutional, political, social and economic crisis absent an immediate course correction. The century plus march of Liberal Progressivism is at a crescendo. The effect of cradle to grave liberal indoctrination is realizing its intended or unintended destructive effect. The negative consequence of big government statist regimes is a constant throughout history. Unfortunately we have reached the point in which typically conservative precepts such as common sense and forethought have largely been discarded in that they simply cannot exist within the ideological paradigm of Progressive Liberalism.
Another thorn in the side of our esteemed elitist media and political benefactors is the fact that the new liberal messiah, the great communicator of our time, our "post America" sea lowering president has been talking non-stop since the beginning of his campaign and subsequent presidency. Soon nearly a decade will have passed without the president saying anything of substance. Conversely, the leading republican presidential candidate initially labeled a circus clown allegedly saddled with what some in our media elite have characterized as a "fifth grade" vocabulary is the only person the American electorate perceives as speaking with authority or relevance proving him to be in reality the "Ringmaster" not the clown.
Our president's suspected psychological affliction is often referred to as "malignant narcissism." America and the world are the victims of his deteriorating stability which evidently has caused him to abandon his primary responsibility to uphold our constitution and protect the American people and homeland. In the face of the Paris Islamic terrorist attacks the president literally had his head in the "Climate Change" clouds while referring to the high body count attack as a "setback." A "setback?" How is it that the flag bearer of the caring, compassionate, loving, all knowing all seeing progressive, liberal Left can be so emotionally detached in the aftermath of the Paris massacre or other terrorist atrocities during his presidency? I can only surmise that if Obama allows an overt adverse reaction to his rhetoric he will be forced to recognize reality; he will lose control, a control that doesn't actually exist. This mindset has made the president irrelevant. Such a scenario would force him to think and feel by removing his head from the climate change fantasy cloud in which he dwells condemning him to an existence as a mere mortal rather than the Mother Earth's sea lowering demigod and savior. The American president certainly does believe in climate change, but not reality.
So where does ceaseless worldwide and domestic Leftist indoctrination place America and the world in the clash with Islamic maniacs? Unfortunately many of the conventional array of political, diplomatic and military solutions which may have quelled violence, war and the displacement of millions are no longer feasible. In short Obama has things so screwed up, viable remaining options for him or future presidents and administrations have been diminished significantly.
Who will Republicans, conservatives and average American working people who have been branded as "nonbelievers" petition to reclaim their legacy of freedom and designation as American citizen?
I don't know but it certainly won't be the leader of "Our American Jihad." -
