Images I associate With Obama

When I first saw this image of Obama, it caught me off guard. Would someone really make a picture like this? This image of Obama reminds me of others I have seen over the years.

Now I have no doubt that the Political Left in this country sees Conservatism in the same light. Yet Obama is a Communist/Socialist. After the last couple of weeks, can there be any doubt? Rules For Radicals Anyone?

“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins — or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer

Another Website states this:
"True revolutionaries do not flaunt their radicalism, Alinsky taught. They cut their hair, put on suits and infiltrate the system from within. Alinsky viewed revolution as a slow, patient process. The trick was to penetrate existing institutions such as churches, unions and political parties....

"One Alinsky benefactor was Wall Street investment banker Eugene Meyer, who served as Chairman of the Federal Reserve from 1930 to 1933. Meyer and his wife Agnes co-owned The Washington Post. They used their newspaper to promote Alinsky....Her series, called 'The Orderly Revolution', made Alinsky famous....

"Alinsky’s crowning achievement was his recruitment of a young high school student named Hillary Rodham. She met Alinsky through a radical church group. Hillary wrote an analysis of Alinsky’s methods for her senior thesis at Wellesley College. ...

"Many leftists view Hillary as a sell-out because she claims to hold moderate views on some issues. However, Hillary is simply following Alinsky’s counsel to do and say whatever it takes to gain power.

"Barack Obama is also an Alinskyite.... Obama spent years teaching workshops on the Alinsky method. In 1985 he began a four-year stint as a community organizer in Chicago, working for an Alinskyite group called the Developing Communities Project.... Camouflage is key to Alinsky-style organizing. While trying to build coalitions of black churches in Chicago, Obama caught flak for not attending church himself. He became an instant churchgoer."

These people have really convinced themselves that they are American when they are truly overthrowing this country's institutions as they were founded. This raises some questions for me. Learning more and more about the Civil War and what it was actually fought over (it wasn't slavery), I just have to wonder if most Americans will just let these people do what they are doing without the slightest care. Or will their policies come to a point when Americans will be willing to fight against one another?

In the Civil War, there were clear boundaries of location. Today there is not. We live next door to those who view the Constitution in radically different ways. The Political Left hates the Constitution and seeks to overthrow it at every turn. The Political Right seeks to restore its "original intent". Can this go on forever?

Our Nation is clearly in the midst of a revolution. The radical 60s have returned with a vengence.
