There you go again Selwyn,making idiotic comparisons of Obama with Hitler by innuendo. This is typical of arrogant and presumptuous social conservatives like you who think they have a monopoly on truth and virtue,and that any one who doesn't share your rigidly moralistic and intolerant views must be a "moral relativist" and a wicked,hedonistic and atheistic monster. What a load of crap.
Narrow-minded,intolerant and self-righteous people like you frighten me and other liberals. You're so insufferably sanctimonious and rigidly dogmatic in your thinking.
And I'm sick and tired of the idiotically disingenuous way in which you keep demonizing Obama and imputing all manner of evil motives to him.In fact, compared to a lot of other Washington politicians,including republicans, he's in fact one of the most decent and honorable in that sleezy town.
He's not a sanctimonious hypocrite like a lot of other piously conservative and religious blowhard republicans who are always talking about family values,traditional values and God and country while being absolute sleezeballs in their private lives.
Your descriptions of Obama are nothing but infantile name-calling. There's not a shred of truth in any of your accusations against him.

Those who have read this article by Selwyn Duke and still fail to understand its point should read it again. And again. And again until you can, at least, acquiesce that he has a very valid point. Several, in fact.

Centuries ago, Lord Acton opined that "power tends to corrupt; but absolute power corrupts absolutely". This well-established axiom demands of us that we examine our potential political leaders most minutely and most discriminately. This CANNOT be accomplished by relying on the establishment media. This is especially true of the coronation and election of BHO - a rank and egomaniacal Marxist radical - to our highest office.

The media malfeasance in marginalizing and covering up this man's severe moral and social (not to mention experiential) deficits is unforgivable and the Constititional Republic and free-market economy that defined American greatness and exceptionalism is paying and will continue to pay a hefty price.

But hear this: Those that value our Constitiutional Rule of Law, our First Principles, our Essential Liberty and our nation's Judeo/Christian values shall prevail. Attend a Tea Party protest/rally and witness the value of my statement.

Selwyn, is there a source that collects the many brilliant quotes of G.K. Chesterson in a single volume?

Robert Berger

Selwyn,you just keep piling on the ****. Obama,like him or not,or whether you approve of the way his administration is running the country,is no ruthless,power-hungry,unscrupulous and evil communist dictator, and the notion that he intends to turn America into another communist totalitarian state like the former Soviet Union,China or Cuba is beyond ludicrous.
Comparing him to Hitler is idiotic.This is nothing but the most unscrupulous hysterical fear mongering.
In fact,far from being a tyrant,Obama has acted with remarkable discipline and restraint as President.He hasn't taken any one's religion freedom away,hasn't had a single person arrested,let alone executed for speaking out against him,hasn't done anything that you would expect from a ruthless dictator.
Almost everything Obama has said and done as President has been taken out of context and deliberately misconstrued and misinterpreted by fear-mongering conservative demamgogues to make him look like a sinister and dangerous figure.

Robert Berger

I'm getting tired of all this hysterical fear mongering about our current president supposedly being an evil Marxist and communist dictator. It's all pure ****,and nothing but ****.He isn't even a real left-winger.
As Bill Maher has pointed out,this nation as a whole has gone so far right that many are accusing Obama, who would have been a moderate republican by the standards of the past,of being a radical left-wong marxist and communist out to turn America into another communist totalitarian dictatorship.
That's right.If Obama were a politician in the 70s, he'd be considered moderate.But America as a whole has gone so far right that it makes Attila the Hun and Genghis Khan look liberal. It's so far right now it's almost in another dimension, a sort of Bizarro world where any one who has the slightest disagreement with current conservative orthodoxy about economics and social views is automatically labeled as a socialist ,marxist and communist,and a wicked,Godless hedonist out to undermine the nation's morality.
This is why a rather moderate guy like me causes a right-wing wacko like Phil France to foam at the mouth.

Philip France

Robert,

You are insane. For evidence I cite your very words: "As Bill Maher has pointed out". You take as a source of reference and understanding this farcical reptile? It's no wonder that you refer to me as a "right-wing wacko". Coming from you, this is a high compliment and a badge of honor. I'll give Bill Maher more credit than I do you. He is an entertainer. He gets paid to spew his lies and vomit his disinormation. You get nothing for believing him. How pitiful you are.

Let me tell you something, you sanctimonious ne'er-do-well. It is morons like YOU that allow yourselves to be manipulated and deceived by the likes of Maher. It is self-loathing and infantile cretins like YOU who need to own up to or nation's malaise and the reality that we elected a Marxist man-child with no experience and even less competance to our HIGHEST OFFICE!

One more thing. You also said this: "Comparing him to Hitler is idiotic". If you knew your head from your behind and if you have even read ONE history book in the last thirty years of your life you would know this: Only ONE public and national leader in ALL of the WORLD has had his birth and eductaion records sealed from public scrutiny. Guess who, dumbell? Yes, Adolph Hitler. By this virtue alone, every comparison between the two despots is clearly legitimate.

Better go along now. I think I here your mommy calling. It's probably time to have your diaper changed.

He was elected by people like Robert. Those who don't see the Truth in someone like Obama are apt to be led to slaughter, much easier than those who can see the man behind the words of "hope & change". They are the big fakes & smiles that Obama hopes will win over the populace. We can only "hope" that the "change" will begin in November & end in 2012. Our nation will not survive this narcissistic, selfish man who seals his records-and rules with an underhanded approach. WHAT & HOW ARE THESE POSSIBLE?-I'm praying to the real GOD that he sends us a true leader that can right the wrongs Obama has forced upon those of us who don't agree.

It never ceases to amaze me how idiotic the lefties are. How many morals and values that they lack. I am a FIRM believer in God Almighty and Yeshua, who died for my sins.

In confusion, before Obama was ever elected...I went to my God and asked Him to show me about this man Obama. I got the gut feeling, when he (Obama) was debating or giving a speech on television, that when he looked into the camera, I was to look deep into his eyes, which I did and I immediately became so sick to my stomach I wanted to vomit. It came on all of a sudden and left me as soon as I turned the channel.

God will speak to those who have ears to hear and can recognize Him. I give glory to the MOST HIGH YAHWEH, that Obama got one less vote....mine! I do not fear him..(Obama). I fear my God. Obama needs to know that it is not HIM that is in control...It is Yahweh. God has a name, and it is not Obama.

Obama is a classic study in abnormal psychology. The people who elected him have been sucked in by a psychopath. His true being is hidden under a framework of lies. Intellectually he is strong, but morally he is void of a conscious. In pretense he parades...in actuality he is owned, lock, stock, and barrel, by an extensive organization of folks who are bent on warping and converting this nation into something strange and unfamiliar to the principles of our founding fathers. His true being has been molded by the influence of his mother...a die hard atheistic, critical thinker, socialist. Grandparents were communist friendly and communist leaning, and pushed him into communist hands. Like all psychopaths...he hides his true identity. He twist and spins to his hearts delight. He paints whatever picture that benefits him personally. If it is a lie, so what...he is an actor. He reads from a script manufactured by others. He is supersensitive to several things...these are conditioned responses, and usually revolve around his "self"....his extreme narcissistic frame of reference. He may have an "attachment" problem, as he seems not to be able to truly appreciate the values and principles laid out by our founding fathers. They escape him. He has problems in truly being an American...turns on them, demeans them, exhibits them in a negative light to the world, and it is a chore for him to even place his hand over his heart during singing of the National Anthem. He has no problems in burning the flag or listening to a radical extremist GD the US from a pulpit. He loves it and stayed with it for twenty years. Such a person we have elected and are now experiencing the fruits of his labor.

I just want to say thank you for bringing to light the secular society that we live in today Mr. Duke. It renews my obligation to god and to not put my faith on the back burner. The social norm "if it feels good, do it" really struck home with me. It showed me how easy it is to get distracted in our society and to do what ever you want instead of doing what you know is right. I am trying to strengthen my ties with God and to not let my faith falter in the face of a secular society. I just want to say thank you again and that I am resolved in my dedication to god.
