Anti-Bob Update #6: The Ones For Whom They Were Laying in Wait

(A re-gifted post from yesterjeer.)

So, why has the MSM given Obama a pass on his two-decade plus involvement in what can only be called a racist and anti-American hate group operating under the guise of Christianity?

I can think of two main reasons: first, the usual soft bigotry of low expectations. Left wing racists don't expect blacks to live up to the same ethical standards as whites. More generally, any member of an authorized left-wing Victim Group is free of the culpability that applies to the rest of us. Not only that, but in the upside down world of the left, the immoral act of a victim becomes virtuous (e.g., terror is caused by fighting it).

Here I am reminded of a scene from Annie Hall, in which Alvy's father reflects the casual bigotry of the condescending liberal:

ALVY'S FATHER: You fired the cleaning woman?

ALVY'S MOTHER: She was stealing.

ALVY'S FATHER: But she's colored.


ALVY'S FATHER: So the colored have enough trouble.

ALVY'S MOTHER: She was going through my pocketbook!

ALVY'S FATHER: They're persecuted enough!

ALVY'S MOTHER: Who's persecuting? She stole!

ALVY'S FATHER: All right -- so we can afford it.

ALVY'S MOTHER: How can we afford it? On your pay? What if she steals more?

ALVY'S FATHER: She's a colored woman, from Harlem! She has no money! She's got a right to steal from us! After all, who is she gonna steal from if not us?

Exactly. Who are Rev. Wright and his colored followers supposed to hate if not us?! Leave the man alone! We deserve it!

Thus, for example, at dailykos, the matter was "reframed" [BTW, "reframing" is a new word for the same magical all-purpose cognitive tool of the left, i.e., lying; in other words, lying has been reframed as reframing] as white racists persecuting a harmless old curmudgeon, perhaps played by Redd Foxx, for expressing perfectly reasonable opinions: "Please let an old black man have his anger in the privacy of his church.... Are our hearts so small and our need for reassurance so great that we cannot allow an old black man who dedicated his life to his community his anger? Are you honestly going to tell me that this is the first time white America has seen and heard from black folks?"

As if we care that he is angry as opposed to malevolently insane. It's good to be angry. It just depends upon what you're angry about. God hates evil. But if you're angry about the U.S. inventing AIDS to engage in black genocide, or about our government being behind the 9-11 attacks, or the CIA bringing crack cocaine into American cities, then I don't care if you're boiling over with rage or eerily calm -- either way, you're insane.

Besides, the kosbag assures us that Wright is no different than those evil Jews anyway: "Have we not heard what Rabbis routinely say about Palestinians across the US?" I have to admit, he's got a point. More than once, I've heard Palestinians referred to as "bloodthirsty, Jew-hating fanatics who will slit the throat of every last Jewish child." No, wait. That was in the Hamas charter.

Speaking of which, it's a real mystery why Jews continue to vote Democrat, when the only widespread source of organized anti-Semitism is on the left, whereas the ranks of the right are filled with people such as myself who regard Israel as so self-evidently morally, politically, intellectually, spiritually, and comedically superior to its barbarous and humorless neighbors, that we would not abandon her under any circumstances. It is one of the few sources of light in this dark world.

Anyway, what is the second reason Obama's membership in a religious hate cult is so uncontroversial to the MSM? Because Rev. Wright is simply saying out loud what virtually all leftists believe: that the United States is inherently racist, sexist, classist, homophobic, and imperialistic, and a source of worldwide oppression, not liberty. Leftism is a hate cult, the only difference being that to learn its tenets it usually costs you much more than a few bucks thrown into the collection plate every Sunday.

Rather, in order to learn what Rev. Wright teaches, one normally has to spend a few hundred thousand dollars at an elite university. So in this regard, Obama is a true egalitarian, since his church is a bargain compared to the cost of a liberal university education.

So where did Obama pick up this affinity for insanely hateful rhetoric? If he were a person of pallor who belonged to a church with equally morally repugnant beliefs -- say, that blacks were the cause of their own lynching, or that Muslims should be rounded up and placed in concentration camps -- his political career would be over faster than you can say David Duke.

At Weekly Standard, Andrew Ferguson has a piece in which he analyzes the content of Obama's hollow-as-a-stump speeches, which seem so vacuous and shallow. And yet, unconscious logic mandates that underneath the gauzy rhetoric there must be a demonology at work, in which there is going to be hell to pay for those responsible for our wretched and hopeless situation.

The only thing that separates Obama from the average pol is that he doesn't explicitly name the enemy, but leaves it to the fevered imaginations of the primitive psychoclass to whom he resonates. But knowing what we know about the imaginations of our ideological enemas drawn to dank pouthouses such as dailykos and huffintonpost, I don't like the idea of anything having to do with state power being excreted through the bowels of those ignoranuses -- not my health, and certainly not my automobile warranty.

In a campaign known for its masturbatory solipsism, the crotch phrase We Are the Ones We've Been Waiting For nevertheless impresses with its self-pleasuring absurdity. Ferguson notes that the phrase cannot be translated into French, since it doesn't technically make any sense, although "do you sell inflatable dolls?" comes the closest.

And yet, it must mean something, or people wouldn't react so strongly to it. In other words, it must again have some vibratory unconscious resonance that simply doesn't penetrate the more mature among us.

The provenance of the line actually passes through feminist literary hack Alice Walker, who says she took it from -- hold on to your hat, you won't believe it -- a left-wing-radical-feminist-bisexual poetess! Walker suggests that we've been waiting for us because "we are able to see what is happening with a much greater awareness than our parents or grandparents, our ancestors, could see."

I suppose that's possible. For example, Einstein saw further than Newton. But.... Alice Walker sees further than Shakespeare? Does Deepak Chopra fleece further than Tony Robbins? Does Bill Maher see further than Monty Python? Can Keith Olbermann pee further than his paranoid delusions? For that matter, do Obama and his bitter band of statists have greater vision than America's founding liberals?

Hey, as Louis Armstrong said about jazz, "if you have to ask, you'll never know":

"When Obama's supporters say 'We are the ones we've been waiting for,' what they mean is that in the long roll call of history, from Aristotle and Heraclitus down through Augustine and Maimonides and Immanuel Kant and the fellows who wrote the Federalist Papers, we're number one! We're the smartest yet! Everybody -- Mom, Dad, Gramps and Grandma, Great Grandpa and Great Grandma, maybe even the Tribal Elders -- they've all been waiting for people as clued-in as us!"

Yes, but... how can a post-literate rabble of cross-eyed and hypnotized.... I'll just let Ferguson try to explain it:

"No one who's wandered through an Obama rally and heard the war whoops and seen the cheerful, vacant gazes would come away thinking, These are the smartest people ever. I'm sorry, they just aren't. What is unmistakable is the creepy kind of solipsism and the air of self-congratulation that clings to his campaign. There is something happening, he says in stump speeches. And what's happening? Change is happening. How so? The reason our campaign has been different is about what you, the people who love this country, can do to change it. And the way to change it is to join the campaign, which, once you join it, will change America."

Etc. Ferguson calls it "optimistic despair. The overarching theme of Obama's speeches, and of his campaign, is that America is a fetid sewer whose most glorious days lie just ahead, thanks to the endless ranks of pathetic losers who make it a beacon of hope to all mankind."

And here's where the scary part comes in. Because someone is responsible for this horrible mess we're in. Obama doesn't name names, but he is riding on a wave of half-awake hyper-partisans who have no reticence whatsoever in naming them:

"Who are the agents of this despair? By whose hand has the country been brought so low?" These agents "vanish in the fog" of Obama's rhetoric: "Cause and effect are blurred. Bad things happen though nobody does them. Instead we face disembodied entities, ghostly apparitions."

The most likely reason for the evasiveness is that "if Obama named anybody, the cat would be out of the bag.... Put them all together and it's likely to come to a fairly high number of people: stockholders, employees and managers of globalized companies; insurance claim adjusters, guys on oil rigs, hog farmers, pro-lifers, moms in SUVs, taxpayers who decline to float bonds for local schools, voters who pulled the lever for President Bush and are still kindly disposed toward him."

If Obama "dared to wrap bodies around those disembodied forces, if he began to trace effects back to the agents that cause them, then his campaign would suddenly appear to be what it is: a conventional alignment of political interests, trying to seize power from another conventional alignment of political interests.... His fans, it turns out, aren't the people they've been waiting for; they're just the same old people, like everybody else."

Yes, but I'm afraid that we are the ones for whom they're laying in wait.

America is a fetid sewer whose most glorious days lie just ahead, thanks to the endless ranks of pathetic losers who make it a beacon of hope to all mankind.

The only way to turn fetid sewage into future bounty is to compost it into fertilizer. Seems to me he's already well on the way to ruthlessly harvesting the current crop of success (and yes, failure) in order to transform it into the building material of his imagined udopia. Only trouble is, instead of composting just the waste and chaff he's destroying the productive seed crop under the assumption that the current successful type of plants must be stealing all the good nutrients from those poor weeds who're just trying to struggle for survival.

Or something.

Once again a very astute observation from Jule.

Brother Robert has written over and over pointing out that the materialist/atheist/humanist (whatever - the tags for this thing are legion) philosophy is an inversion of what is real and true. They think to find salvation here on this horizontal plane and (at best) ignore the Real that comes in to us from the vertical. They attempt to pour endlessly from a pitcher that is never refilled. They cannot help but fail and when this becomes obvious even to them they go into full scapegoat mode and start persecuting their imagined enemies. They never look inward for the cause of their failure because to do so opens up vistas too hideous and/or painful to confront. Instead they project these horrid vistas onto their "enemies" and have at them thus creating the exact conditions of pain, suffering and oppression that they profess to want to eradicate.

But the envious person is far removed indeed from such virtues. He would be happy to see his fellow man ruin himself. Every mark of God's generosity towards his neighbour is like a knife thrust that pierces his heart and causes him to die in secret. Since we are all members of the same Body of which Jesus Christ is the Head, we should so strive that unity, charity, love, and zeal can be seen in one and all. To make us all happy, we should rejoice, as St. Paul tells, in the happiness of our fellow men and mourn with those who have cares or troubles. But, very far from experiencing such feelings, the envious are forever uttering scandals and calumnies against their neighbours. It appears to them that in this way they can do something to assuage and sweeten their vexation.

"When Obama's supporters say 'We are the ones we've been waiting for,.." they are parroting what they read it in Jim "the Marxist" Wallis' book:

IT TAKES A CERTAIN AMOUNT of chutzpah to write a book called God's Politics. But you have only to read a few pages of Jim Wallis's new bestseller by that name to discover that it isn't actually about the politics of an all-knowing, all-seeing, all-powerful deity at all. Instead, it's 384 pages of Jim's politics, and Jim (with a couple of notable exceptions) is a pretty average, down-the-line leftist ...
MAINLY, THOUGH, what Wallis is up to these days is building his "movement for spiritual and social change" and arguing for optimism over cynicism. Previous theological agonies dispelled, Wallis fills his book with chatty anecdotes from his speaking tours, his time teaching at Harvard, his appearances on TV and talk radio, his travels at home and abroad. He closes the book with the self-congratulatory (and possibility heretical) declaration: "we are the ones we have been waiting for."

Theophilia, if you read this, know that I do value you and believe in your healing work. Let me know if I can help you in any way. Let us hear more about you, but can you please be really clear about things?

Friend of Theo,

How about you sign up for a blogger account so Theofilia can actually contact you instead of hiding behind the anonymous moniker. You'd then actually be able to follow through with what you say you want to do instead of it sounding like so much hollow bullshit. Better yet, how about trading e-mails with her using Bob as the intermediary.
Keeping your "relationship" on Bob's blog enables you to continue to keep her at 10 foot pole distance without any further ties. Though given enough time she'd no doubt see you for the sanctimonious phony the rest of us know and love.
But hey, if it makes you feel like you're better and more compassionate than others, that's all that counts, eh?
Don't you ever get tired of the pretense?

From Julie's link "Worse still, the Serve Act proposes to make volunteering for the government mandatory (with pay, of course). Last time I looked, working for pay was called A JOB.
The scariest part of the bill is that while you’re serving as a “volunteer,” you’re prohibited from participating in worship and church activities, political rallies and being involved in a union. In short, your essential freedoms are gone. I keep hearing about Obama being a socialist but, I have to disagree. Based on these measures he appears to more like a person pursuing Communism or Fascism."

I gasped at that on also in my Constitution - Use it or lose it! post. Even worse, I've heard several 'thoughtful' rinopugnanticans say words to the effect of "Oh, I was alarmed at first, but then I realized it kept Govt from mixing in with peoples personal religious activities"... completely lost on them, was the fact that if you are forced to 'volunteer', then you are also forced to refrain from your 'personal religious activities'.

Use it or lose it.

Hey there Friend of Theofilia:)

I can share more of what it's like being plugged into the Source as long as Bob doesn't come right out and tells me to bug off.

Right now I can tell you (one 'moment' of MANY) what it was/felt like (early on) getting plugged into the "battery of the world" on the "Angelic" level.

('Angelic' energy consciousness vibrates faster than the speed of light. At that level of being the universal laws operate along different set of rules.)

If you are familliar with what a "Tonglen" practice is, then this is it. But, instead of breathing in the world's pain and breathing out bliss-healing energies, -- and because my Tonglen Work is on a quantum level -- my entire body breathes/absorbes the pain and releases blissful healing energies.

Hard to grasp such a thing? Absolutely, but for some of us this is our Karma.
And, not at all am surprised why some folk are content 'enuf to just chat about angels and Paradise and God's grace.


As if an invisible being was infusing, cell by cell its essence-body into my matter body. Heard a groan/moan. . . Then, a huge wave of sorrow - "as if all the pain of the world wooshed through me" . . . Feeling next like an Angel (with wings) hearing blissful music.

Which reminds me ......
I hear Music of the spheres quite often. This night too:) Sometimes I sing in my most angelic voice too:)

Where do I live? In earth-body in a small town in Ontario Canada. Would I want to make it known exactly where? Not at all. Though I'm not at all paranoind, I don't want to be looking over my shoulders, for some hate mongers would be more than happy to hunt me down.

As to where I get my clients for my healing practice?
I don't have clients. I don't have healing practice. I keep my family healthy. I stay healthy.

As mentioned before, I can't "work" because it's too taxing on me. My body-system is working very hard already as it is.

Not long ago I felt ill from overdose of "world's vomit" . . . Restored, when my mind's eye beheld the Sun's radiance I asked for a healing. Hanging in air like a limp rag doll absorbing its health-giving bliss-energies. It works!

In the past 24 years I've been to doctors once to to have some tests done -- for the first time -- but only because my daughter's made me. I have not to date needed any meds and hopin' nothing will change, bec. I don't have medical prescription insurance. Come to think of it I don't have any kind of insurance at all. Before that? no health concernes either.

Back to why I can't work. . .In the past people took advantage of me - "He wants to see you, but I know he won't pay for energy."
Thanx, but no thanx.

OK I'm atta here!

Course they could just be play 'we did not know' rather then admit they got protocol advice & decided to ignore it since 'we know everything anyway'. Serves them right, a**holes.

Hildabeast is a different case entirely: no way, after 8yrs in the WH, she would not know about that particular dept, so that fubar is on her & her staff - my guess 'translation' garnered online (somebody checked Babelfish & some other toys which all showed the word she put on the button as the primary result) by monolinguists who by nature of being used to only one language, aren't hep to the way words/concepts can transliterate (or not) across languages & cultures. Just never even think to check what's not part of their universe. Besides, the concept of 'reset button' is very American & likely engendered 'huh???' in the recipient anyway.

P.S. to my above musings to Friend of Theofilia.
According to the 21 States of Union of Guhysamaja Tantra (which I posted 2 days ago?)
The last 2 ,

"The union of Purity and Impurity."

And, "The union of those with and without forms."

That's what I'm talking about. This kind ot "Tonglen" is above and beyond the Zen practice of "breathing" Tonglen. Not at all dismissing "Zen" tonglen, because how many people would even do that without fear of "What if it actually works!?"

As 'luck' would have it, just few days ago as I was rummiging for something else, I chanced upon the Teaching on 21 states. It stayed burried for years and maaan was I glad to see -- actually see, that some human being experienced this and described EXACTLY what it's like.

Jes' trying to be as percise as possible.

So there's 'nother - for me - proof, or verification that I'm not pulling out of thin air my spirit-experiences.

I don't have experiences like yours, so I can't relate directly but it seems like a worthwhile endeavor. There is nothing higher than selfless service.

It is unfortunate you can't make any money but then again money isn't everything.

In reply to hoarhey, yes, I see what you mean about pretensions and sanctimony. I guess the ego-payoff for me is to feel special and "more" than others. This is clearly a wrong movement and I'll stop if I can keep my cravings for that kind of feeling under control.

If you're new here, I'm sorry if I've lumped you in with previous sanctimonious anons. How am I to know? You're anonymous.
And how about a thank you for my energy work? (I kid) What was pointed out to you, if taken to heart, will do more for your spiritual growth than 1000 new age energy healings.

Now, have you exchanged e-mail addys with Theo? ;^)

BTW, you won't be able to control it any better than you already have. What's needed is the willingness to see it and be done with it and it will be lifted from you. It is a heavy burden and when manipulated in masses of people, leads to most of the injustice in the world.
Overcome this, and you'll understand what Bob is speaking of with regards to Obama et. al..
