The Obamamessiah is going to save the Arabs from "mean" America!

The Obamamessiah has come up with a new flock for him to shepherd: the Arabs! Because, of course, they too need protection from he, the Almighty Savior. Their civil rights are being threatened, gosh darn it, and he's going to step in and save them! All they have to do is then in turn hand over complete control of their lives to him, and everyone'll be happy. Hallelujah to the Obamamessiah! Can I getta amen?!

According to a new campaign ad in Texas, anyways, that's how it's going down -- Arab-American families are getting "rounded up":

If there is an Arab-American family being rounded up without benefit of an attorney, it threatens my civil liberties. It is that fundamental belief, I am my brother's keeper, I am my sister's keeper, it is that fundamental belief that makes this country work.

Honey, the "brother's keeper" argument works in Christianity. It don't work in politics. I don't want you and your government to "keep me". I know that liberals like to look on themselves as saviors to the backwoods, stupid idiots who occupy their country, but they aren't. And I don't need any goverment bureaucrat taking care of my shit for me.

And, of course, just in time is Michelle Obama's portrait of a "mean" America, the kind of country that screws people over for fun just because it can, the kind that would round up Arab-Americans without proper representation. We're "jammed up", y'all!

[She] begins with a broad assessment of life in America in 2008, and life is not good: we're a divided country, we're a country that is "just downright mean," we are "guided by fear," we're a nation of cynics, sloths, and complacents. "We have become a nation of struggling folks who are barely making it every day," she said, as heads bobbed in the pews. "Folks are just jammed up, and it's gotten worse over my lifetime."

From these bleak generalities, Obama moves into specific complaints. Used to be, she will say, that you could count on a decent education in the neighborhood. But now there are all these charter schools and magnet schools that you have to "finagle" to get into. (Obama herself attended a magnet school, but never mind.)Health care is out of reach ("Let me tell you, don't get sick in America"), pensions are disappearing, college is too expensive...

"The life that I'm talking about that most people are living has gotten progressively worse since I was a little girl. . . . So if you want to pretend like there was some point over the last couple of decades when your lives were easy, I want to meet you!"

Yeah, damn those charter schools and magnet school giving inner-city kids the opportunity to go to better schools! And I'm still trying to figure out how we're a bunch of complacent "sloths", yet at the same time, are struggling and working hard. Isn't that kind of a contradiction? Whatever.

I went to an all right public school for most of high school (I attended Catholic school for three years). It was certainly better than schools in Arlington and the Northside. The school my mom went to for high school was once given the label of "model school". Now, there are drug deals, shootings and bomb threats, rapes, and all around violence going on quite regularly there. And the high school you attend is decided by where you live, so if you live in a bad neighborhood, you're likely to go to a bad school -- except, of course, for the magnet programs. There are dozens of options for these magnet programs that can get inner-city kids out of struggling or failing schools rife with violence and into schools that are pretty much as good as you can get when it comes to public schools. My high school was a magnet school, and we had a fairly large number of inner-city students come as magnet students. And guess what? They flourished. I attended a private school, and am thankful for it, because the education was that much better. If Michelle Obama actually gave a damn about those inner-city kids, you'd think she'd be applauding charter and magnet schools that give those kids the chance to get a better education.

I also don't have health insurance right now, because yeah, I can't afford it. And I don' blame the government for that; they aren't responsible for ensuring that I'm covered. That's my responsibility, and no one else's. No one has a "right" to health insurance, or even good health. If you get cancer, then I'm very sorry for you. But it isn't the government's job to nurse you through it. If I get hit by a car tomorrow, well, that'd suck. But it's my bed; I made it, so I'd have to lie in it.

The thing is, life isn't easy. People are always going to fall on tough times occasionally, be they financial, personal, emotional, spiritual... whatever. No one skates through life scot-free. Most of us endure some measure of financial hardships at some point in our lives. I guess the difference between "us" and "them" is that we don't expect life to be easy; we don't expect anything to be handed to us on a silver platter.

And where has there been any sign that Arab families are being "rounded up"? While there are some people who advocate internment for Arab-Americans, as we did with Japanese-Americans in WWII, the government hasn't instituted that yet, except in the Obamas' liberal fantasy-land.

What is it about liberals, and especially the Obamas? Why is it they see such negativity when they look at our country? To hear them talk, this is the reincarnation of the Soviet Union, complete with a dictatorship, gulags, and death for political dissidents. The Obamas, like many liberals, don't look at their country and feel their hearts swell with pride. They look at America and feel shame, anger, fear, and contempt. They look back on our proud history, and are ashamed, guilty, and outraged. The mistakes we have made loom so large in their minds that everything that is good about the United States is diminished. But can they really see America so oppressive as to be able to compare to Cuba, China, and the Soviet Union?

Interesting thoughts for them to have, considering that if America was as bad as they saw it, they'd be killed or jailed for saying the things they say.

Are these the kind of people we want leading our country -- people who feel nothing for her except a sense of grim determination that they should be the ones to "save" her from all of her sins? I understand that we aren't perfect, but we are still the last, best hope for mankind. Do we really want a President and First Lady who can't understand that, who see nothing but oppression, lies, hate, and fear in the country that has given them so many opportunities?

I know what my answer is. It's a hell no.

And I would love, just love, to see a response from the Obama camp to everything I just wrote that does not mention the words "hope" or "change" anywhere in it.

C'mon, can't Obama produce the names of Arab-Americans we are 'rounding up'? It can't be that hard. He MUST have been given this information the same way he gets his vast military knowledge.

Oh, that's right ...IF there is.

Fantasy scenerios = Reality in the liberal mind.

This messiah angle you dedicated Republicans are pursuing has always fascinated me - seems so vaguely empty.

"Arabs are not bad people..."

Remember the days when one just assumed that it was wrong to denounce entire races of people?

Spurwing, which races are bad? I need to know today, because I might have to switch dry cleaners tomorrow.

My kids go to a charter school and it has been great. My oldest went from a B/C student at her old county school to an A/B student her first year and a straight A student this year. My kindergartener is reading at second grade levels.

The Charter school is so popular in the county that they hold a lottery for kids to get into the school. As a result it has a very diverse student population.

Because it supports kids from ALL over the county there are no school buses. So parents drive many miles in metro Atlanta traffic to get their kids to school everyday. I know because I am one of them.

By far the majority of Arabs in the US are CHRISTIANS! Many refugees from Lebanon and from areas now controlled by Hamas. This is an example of really loose language, since I assume that the folks on the end of the "round-up" are supposedly MUSLEMS? Maybe arabs as well?

When did schools stop teaching Venn diagrams? Or did we just decide that logic was an unnecessary frill compared to "self-esteem".

And thus spake, Obama, and Obama spake good.

And unto his people, he doth sayeth, "Let us for them that are us, and the coming of us into this hopeful place, where we are made to lay down with the ass."

But don't get too close, I don't like the rabble. . .

Anyone get the feeling that the Obama's don't really like America?

Is that something we want in a President?
