What happened is not an uncommon fallacy of great nations that marshal their resources for wars abroad while ignoring the wars that must be fought at home. American military might crushed a Hussein abroad with superior force only to discover that another Hussein had attacked America's far more vulnerable political structure resulting in a hostile takeover.
But the question must be asked why was our political structure so vulnerable to begin with? Democracy is only truly vulnerable when a sizable amount of its citizens have grown detached from its values.
The Democratic party, like most left wing movements, has thrived on creating and perpetuating disenfranchisement particularly among minorities to supplement its base offering of class warfare. But more devastatingly it has worked to displace America's traditional values with moral relativism as fed through popular culture on the low road and social justice on the high road.
Obama could never have become President had not two generations been taught through public education and popular culture to devalue military service, mock patriotism, accept drug use and paranoid rants against America as normative. Worse yet had they not been taught to look to government to fill the gap of their own inadequacies leading them to be dissatisfied with anything less than a messiah figure.
So while we were fighting against one Hussein in Iraq, another Hussein was being pushed through the ranks as part of an aggressive and well planned campaign to seize power in America. Socialism, that of the Baath Party and the Democratic party, is more than a casual bond. Saddam modeled himself on Stalin, a socialist tyrant who for a long stretch of time was a hero for American liberals no less so than FDR.
The American Republic has depended on certain understandings, not least of them the chain of continuity to Valley Forge and Independence Hall, a continuity that liberalism has undermined with cynical historical revisionism for the brighter students and with a shallow celebrity oriented culture of sensationalism on the other. In the process they have not only hijacked America, they have hijacked who Americans see themselves as.
Liberating America from Barack ibn Hussein (the name commonly being used for him through the Middle East) will not be accomplished by marching the troops in, but by reclaiming a lost generation who lacking a patriotic tradition embraced the celebrity of a manufactured superstar.
While we looked to threats abroad, the worm was boring into their hearts and minds with a culture that senselessly worshiped youth and rebellion, sneered at the flag and could no longer tell the difference between image and reality. After 9/11 we had the opportunity to liberate America by reclaiming the real meaning of what America is.
We still have that opportunity today because to liberate America we must liberate the real meaning of America. Not the one constructed by liberals as being synonymous with tolerance, fighting prejudice and immigration but the real America of George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and Nathan Hale. The America that embraced excellence in all things and independence for every man. It was an America that rejected kings and tyrants, claimed vast frontiers to itself and believed in its own manifest destiny.
It is an America that has been laid down into the coffin of socialism and globalism throughout the 20th century... but it is an America that is wholly relevant today. It is an America of excellence and destiny and if we can reclaim it, then we can shatter the pied piper's spell. If we cannot, then nothing remains but to join the ranks of marching morons chanting Obama's name.
It was said after September the 11th that a sleeping giant had awoken. But the giant quickly went back to sleep again, hushed in its great cradle by the twin nannies of socialism and consumer culture, told to go back to sleep and leave it all in the hands of Washington D.C. The giant that is the American spirit still sleeps now deeper than ever as the enemy rides through Washington D.C. itself. There is no better time than now for the giant to wake again and learn his own strength. For the aim of the enemy is not as simple as murdering Americans, but murdering the American spirit. And liberating America means bringing that spirit forth again.
