Obama's Victory: An Editorial View from Across the Pond
The London Daily Mail 1-6-9
A victory for the hysterical Oprah Winfrey, themad racist preacher Jeremiah Wright, the mainstream media who abandoned any sense of objectivity long ago, Europeanswho despise America largely because they depend on her,comics who claim to be dangerous and fearless but would notdare attack genuinely powerful special interest groups.
A victory for Obama-worshippers everywhere. Avictory for the cult of the cult. A man who has done littlewith his life, but has written about his achievements as ifhe had found the cure for cancer in between winning amarathon and building a nuclear reactor with his teeth.
Victory for style over substance, hyperbole overhistory, rabble-raising over reality.A victory for Hollywood, the most dysfunctionalcommunity in the world.
Victory for Streisand, Spielberg,Soros and Sarandon.Victory for those who prefer welfare to will andinterference to independence. For those who settle for groupthink and herd mentality rather than those who fight forindividual initiative and the right to be out of step withmeager political fashion.
Victory for a man who is no friend of freedom. Heand his people have already stated that media has to becontrolled so as to be balanced, without realizing theextraordinary irony within that statement. Like most liberalzealots, the Obama worshippers constantly speak of Fox andLimbaugh, when the vast bulk of television stations andnewspapers are drastically liberal and anti -conservative.Senior Democrat Chuck Schumer said that just as pornographyshould be censored, so should talk radio. In other words,one of the few free and open means of popular expression maywell be cornered and beaten by bullies who even in triumphcannot tolerate any criticism and opposition.A victory for those who believe the state isbetter qualified to raise children than the family, forthose who prefer teachers' unions to teaching and forthose who are naively convinced that if the West issufficiently weak towards its enemies, war and terror willdissolve as quickly as the tears on the face of a leftistcelebrity.
A victory for social democracy even after most ofEurope has come to the painful conclusion that socialdemocracy leads to mediocrity, failure, unemployment,inflation, higher taxes and economic stagnation.
A victoryfor intrusive lawyers, banal sentimentalists, socialextremists and urban snobs…Racist Preacher Wright gothis wish…. God Damned America…
