Victor Davis Hanson: The Lefty American Rich and Obama

The following article was sent by fellow conservative, Brian Ross, who identified V. D. Hanson as “My fav writer”. Another title could have been, “America’s fascistic Marxism from Woodrow Wilson to Barack Hussein”:

Victor Davis Hanson, at PJ Media: Meet the Richerals

The new millennium has also given us a new American profile — the hip richeral. Richerals are, of course, well off. But they are even more cool and liberal. The two facts are not so much incompatible, as complementary.

For some, big money allows three things: wealth’s cocoon enables you to dream safely about utopia rather than being laid off and broke; it exempts you from worrying much about the high taxes and regulations needed to pay for your redistributionist fantasy agendas; and it gives you the influence, capital, and opportunities to flee from the messy ramifications of your own ideology.

The other side of being liberal is just as important for the richerals. Guilt is a primordial human emotion — usually in civilization’s history assuaged by religion and the accompanying fear of damnation in the hereafter. But richerals are more likely than average to be either agnostic or atheistic. Yet that fact does not mean that they feel any less guilty about unfairness and inequality. So they do have deities of sorts — a hip Olympic pantheon of race, class, gender, and environmental gods. Their own privilege — be it the techie lifestyle of the Silicon Valley, the Ivy League quad, the Malibu gated estate, the Montana getaway, the Upper West Side ambiance — even under Obama just cannot yet be extended to everyone.

And that’s the rub, isn’t it? How can a richeral be redistributionist and statist when such ideologies are targeted at one’s own cherished lifestyle? So penance, medieval exemption, and confessions step in as civilization’s age-old remedies for the guilt of such a pious sinner.

Wear jeans as you board your jet. Listen to rap as you review your stock options. Champion a baitfish. Hate Sarah Palin. Make Travyon into a symbol of resistance. Amnesty for your gardener and nannie alike. Being a richeral apparently means you never have to say you are sorry about the means you used to get your cash, why you mean to keep and expand it, and how you plan to pass it on to your richeral kids.

Barack Obama came to Fresno last week to address the drought. He did not mention the diversions over the last five years of precious irrigation water out to sea. Nor did he talk of any possible funding to build new mountain reservoirs. Instead, he talked mostly of climate change and some new federal loans to address it. We were to assume that both the record cold, ice, and snow back east (that the president fled from) and the record lack of rain here in the West were due to man-made global warming. In terms of “climate change” reductionism, anything counts — a drought or a monsoon, ice or fire, the doldrums or hurricanes, occurring on average, below average, or above average.

Will Clown Al Franken Disappear When Obama Visits Gopherland Tomorrow?

MINNESOTA’S CLOWN IN WASHINGTON, AL FRANKEN, IN A PICKLE!

(The following printing of professional clown Franken’s Obama appearance dilemma was sent by conservative, Mark Waldeland.)

Will Al Franken Snub our Increasingly Unpopular President Tomorrow?
Franken Won’t Commit To Appearing With Obama

With Barack Obama visiting St. Paul’s Union Depot tomorrow, and Democrat Party Chairman Ken Martin saying he is happy to talk about Obamacare, will Al Franken be making any public appearances with the unpopular President?

Franken voted with Obama 100% of the time in 2013 even as the President’s approval rating in Minnesota plummeted to an all-time low. On Monday, Franken’s office told the NY Daily News that Franken won’t commit to appearing publicly with the President in Minnesota tomorrow.

“Al Franken’s record is a total rubber-stamping of President Obama’s agenda,” said RPM Chairman Keith Downey. “Between casting the deciding vote for the Obamacare debacle to supporting President Obama 100% of the time, why wouldn’t Al Franken want to welcome the President to Minnesota?”

Many vulnerable Democrat Senators, such as Sen. Kay Hagan (D-NC) and Sen. Mark Begich (D-AK), are actively avoiding the President on the campaign trail. With Minnesota now a battleground state for control of the Senate, it begs the question if Al Franken will be the next vulnerable Democrat to give Obama the cold-shoulder.

Background:

“When Obama speaks Wednesday in St. Paul, Minn., on the economy, Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) ‘hopes he can join the President,’ a spokesman for the former funnyman said. ‘But it’s uncertain if his schedule will allow for travel since the Senate is in session.’” (Source: NY Daily News, Feb. 24, 2014)

In 2013, Al Franken Voted With President Obama 100 Percent Of The Time. (CQ Voting Studies – Sen. Al Franken, CQ Roll Call, Updated February 2014)

“When President Barack Obama comes to the Twin Cities on Wednesday, he’ll make a stop at Union Depot in St. Paul to discuss transportation and transit issues, a source confirmedSaturday.” (Source: St. Paul Pioneer Press, Feb. 22, 2014)

“The trip to discuss the economy comes as his popularity in the state is at an all-time low, with approval from 43 percent of Minnesotans.” (Source: Minneapolis Star Tribune, February 20, 2014)

MN Democrats Gather in St. Paul to Feel Good Increasing Police POWER

Mark Waldeland sent the following notice. For nearly two generations Feelings from the Left have dictated talk and performance at the Minnesota Houses of making Law.

They and others forget that for every 100,000 pieces of legislation newly enacted directs 100,000 pieces of legislation which must by law be enforced…by POLICE and police type authorities.

Passing laws makes Lefty Democrats FEEL good. More and more they become cement and concrete people, ever more poorly educated, ever more intolerant, ever more powerful to restrain the broader, the free, to narrow and limit the creative, finally to dictate the narrow, the feminist, the racist, to control to nourish in their motherless manner every pustule of life by law and police authority.

See below for a preview of what to expect this session – and it will be coming fast and furious, so please be ready to pay attention and stay on your toes responding to Action Alerts.

The Fall of CNN’s Piers Morgan, Messenger of Marxist Mediochrity

I shall miss Piers Morgan of CNN. He was the ideal messenger of today’s Marxist Obamaling class….arrogant, absent of knowledge, mouthy, and professed disdain for everything honest, true, and decent. He preferred to sell feelings!

Piers Morgan was the lefty male personification of feminism, minority racism, and university programmed mediocrity. Even though, I believe, he was manufactured abroad.

Perhaps he was better suited for sports analysis?
