Why the great uniter is in reality the greatest of dividers

Shannon Love:

For women to support Obama because they are women, they must view non-women as a threat. They must mistrust men and believe they need Obama in charge of the violent power of the state so that he can protect them from the dangerous men.

For African-Americans to support Obama because they are African-Americans, they must view non-African Americans as a threat. They must believe that they cannot trust non-African Americans to the point that they need Obama in charge of the violent power of the state so that he can protect them from the dangerous non-African Americans.

For Latino-Americans to support Obama because they are Latino-Americans, they must view non-Latino Americans as a problem. They must believe that they cannot trust non-Latino Americans to the point that they need Obama in charge of the violent power of the state so that he can protect them from the dangerous non-Latino Americans.

And on down the list. Every speech on domestic policy that the President gives paints one group of Americas as evil and tells everyone else they need the government, headed by Obama, to protect them from their evil neighbors.

By shear process of elimination, the most dangerous Americans, the ones everyone else needs Obama's government to protect them from, must be middle to upper-middle class white people who work in business and especially those who own businesses large and small...

... which is the demographic at the heart of the Tea Party.

The apparent sincere belief by many on the left that the wide spread Tea Party members are evil, violent people springs precisely from decades of indoctrination in which leftists are progressively trained to view their fellow Americans as evil, dangerous people from whom the benevolent state must protect them. They are especially trained to view white business people as evil. When they see a collection of white, small-to-medium-sized business-owners/self-employed, they automatically see a group of evil and dangerous people. They can't help it. This is all they've been taught and all they say to each other. 

You'll need to read the entire thing... it's one of the most insightful dissections of leftist thought I've seen.

Jim Addison:

Obama is a centrist, all right - his philosophy falls right in the middle, halfway between Bernie Sanders and Mao Zedong.

But the seeds of this attitude were sown by the original FDR coalition of Big Labor, blacks, Southern whites, and Northern liberals. The patchwork of special interests were often in competition for limited federal largess, and were united against the common "enemy," big business and Republicans.

The number and nature of the special interests in the Democratic fold has changed, but the strategy has become entrenched. None of the Democratic policies has worked as promised when implemented, and they have no Plan B, it's just Plan A (more government, more spending) repackaged.

So they have to keep their supporters from asking too many questions, and especially from listening to anything conservatives might say, lest the fallacies be exposed. We must be EEEEVIL, scary, "coming for the children, the poor, coming for the elderly...", Hitler without the warm and compassionate side. And so it must be, lest their policies and ideas be judged upon their merits, or lack thereof.

Ironic, really. This middle/upper-middle class is the most generous, tolerant, law-abiding, productive group in the country. They play by the rules, they support their local communities, and when a catastrophe occurs, they give their time and money to help. They volunteer. They ask for little except to be left alone to live their lives. They pay their bills, they pay their taxes.

And these are the ones that liberals detest.

I suppose it's understandable. The middle/upper-middle class does not need liberals to tell them how to live. They'll do just fine by themselves.

Liberals cannot tolerate thinking like that.
