Of Obama Coups, Dictatorships, Military Intervensions

by the Left Coast Rebel

Today’s headlines at the top of the news site Memeorandum may be the most startling I have come across.

First off, we have far-left nutjob, wingnut, Mr. Gore Vidal in the Times of London waxing non-poetically and unflatteringly about the Obamanation. He took part in a frank discussion with the Times.

In between ramblings in the interview, (gay-love with 100 men before age 25, Timothy McVeigh being a hero?!?!, American stupidity, the war on terror being a plot, myriad nonsense), you find the meat and potatoes, this –

“America has no intellectual class and is rotting away at a funereal
pace. We’ll have a military dictatorship fairly soon, on the basis that nobody else can hold everything together. Obama would have been better off focusing on educating the American people.”

So according to the most radical leftists amongst us, (given that Gore is certified), we are heading to a military dictatorship because we as Americans simply won’t accept the Obamanation Marxist agenda. Or is it that we are too stupid to be governed civilly, civically, democratically? You tell me. Who will instigate this dictatorship? Simply preposterous. Read the entire piece, if you must.

Next up, I bring you John L. Perry of NewsMax, heralding a piece titled Obama Risks a Domestic Military ‘Intervention’. My link for this title is the Google cache mirror of the piece, the article was removed from NewsMax.com minutes ago. He starts off with this –

There is a remote, although gaining, possibility America’s military will intervene as a last resort to resolve the “Obama problem.” Don’t dismiss it as unrealistic.

America isn’t the Third World. If a military coup does occur here it will be civilized. That it has never happened doesn’t mean it wont.
Describing what may be afoot is not to advocate it. So, view the following through military eyes:

He lists these bullet points –

  • Officers swear to “support and defend the Constitution
    of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” Unlike
    enlisted personnel, they do not swear to “obey the orders of the president of the United States.”
  • Top military officers can see the Constitution they are sworn to defend as being trampled on.

  • They can see that Americans are increasingly alarmed that this nation, under President Barack Obama, may not even be recognizable as America by the 2012 election, in which he will surely seek continuation in office.

  • They can see that the economy — ravaged by deficits, taxes, unemployment, and impending inflation — is financially reliant on foreign lender governments.

  • They can see this president waging undeclared war on the intelligence community, without whose rigorous and independent functions the armed services are rendered blind in an ever-more hostile world overseas and at home.

  • They can see the dismantling of defenses against missiles targeted at this nation by avowed enemies, even as America’s troop strength is allowed to sag.

  • They can see the horror of major warfare erupting simultaneously in two, and possibly three, far-flung theaters before America can react in time.

  • They can see the nation’s safety and their own military establishments and honor placed in jeopardy as never before.

My two cents on this now, that’s why you are here after all, right?

I find it interesting that Mr. Perry correctly states that America is not a 3rd tier nation, yet he opens up the possibility of a 3rd World-type military intervention. And while he doesn’t precisely support such, he seemingly doesn’t downplay it as well. And although I certainly think that the Obamanation agenda is radical, Marxian, extra-Constitutional and reliant on a myriad of shadow-government activities; a coup d’état necessitates that we have truly lost our country, something that I fail to see, and is a preposterous delusion.

After all, in a little over a year we have an election coming up. The will of We the People will be heard. Coup-talk just plays into the hand of every nut and fruit that actually does want to take your freedom and rights from you.

I saw a good example of the exact militarism those distinguished British gentlemen were discussing at the anarchist's convention in DC on 9/12/09. It was great. We had both cross and Obama effigy burnings, a gun range set up with really neat Obama targets, and best of all, a police officer badge collecting contest. So many people were arrested, they could not count them. A far cry from the far more peaceful G-20 protests where civilized Europeans came over here and had totally peaceful, respectful demonstrations and even cleaned up after themselves. They are so much smarter than us.

May be he should have said "Obama would have been better off focusing on re-educating the American people." That is the focus of any marxist take over. destroy the history and culture of a country and supplant it with a marxist one. Re-education camps are/were quite popular in communist counties. Of course the alternative is just as bad.

@ Andrew – Sarcasm noted

@ Rightguy – That is what he meant, preisely. Gore Vidal is a good metric of what the Left is really up to and what they think, wihout sugar-coating it.
