Many of us America-loving conservatives think of Barack Obama negatively as the negation of all that we believe in; as our polar opposite and antagonist in practically everything: an anti-American president and hater of this country and its founding principles, values, ideals and Constitution-the elements that make us a nation so unique, exceptional and extraordinary in goodness that we can only be compared to ourselves; and this is not an extreme wingnut view of Obama as the evidence for it from his past and tenure in office is overwhelming. For in Obama's unrealistic, utopian, ideologically clouded mind America is a failing society that falls abysmally short of the perfect, abstract, impossible ideal-the enemy of what's good, reasonable and real-of a classless egalitarian society of fairness, shared wealth and social justice; and it's this idealistic vision of America as it should be that blindly and pigheadedly drives Obama's lawlessness, hyper-partisanship, arrogance, mendacity and disastrous foreign and domestic policies.
POST AMERICAN, POST CONSTITUTIONAL PRESIDENT
And because of Obama's hostility and contempt for all things traditionally American, and our great power, might and wealth, he's been called a "Post-American, Post-Constitutional President"-a characterization which is correct but not final or complete. For Obama is something more radical, dangerous and extreme which underlies his immigration lies and lax border security and enforcement policies that are causing so much chaos with illegal aliens and undermining our sovereignty.This is what I mean:
OBAMA'S ONE WORLD BERLIN SPEECH
In July 2008 when Obama was in Berlin giving his speech to a crowd of 200,000 enraptured Germans conspicuously absent from the stage (in contrast to the famous Berlin speeches of Reagan and JFK) were the flags of America and Germany. Obama went flagless that day, and this was by design for it was a message of what kind of president he'd be if elected. For Obama came to Berlin that day not simply as an American citizen but (more truly and importantly) as he said "a citizen of the world." And later in the speech we were given insight into what he meant by "world citizen" when said:
"The walls between old allies on either side of the Atlantic cannot stand. The walls between the countries with the most and those with the least cannot stand. The walls between races and tribes; natives and immigrants; Christian and Muslim and Jew cannot stand. These now are the walls we must tear down."
When Reagan was in Berlin he told Gorbachev to tear down the wall that divided the city. When Obama was there he told the world to tear down the walls and boundaries dividing them.
THE FICTION OF WORLD CITIZENSHIP
Now of course, in reality, there are no "world citizens." In reality humanity is divided into those who live as citizens of free, self-governing, rule of law societies where the state is the servant of the people protecting their rights and liberties; and those who are subjects living in oppression and slavery to the state with the people serving their masters. For example the peoples of America, Israel, Great Britian and France are free, self-governing citizens of those countries. While the peoples of Cuba, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Iran and Gaza live as unfree oppressed subjects serving the aims of the state and their rulers. That means if someone could be a legal member of all 200 nations having passports for each one he/she still wouldn't qualify as a "world citizen" because not all countries are democratic and free. For the universal passports holder would simultaneously be the free citizen of the US and Great Britain and the oppressed subject of the Saudi monarchy and dictatorship of communist Cuba.
THE UNITED STATES OF HUMANITY
Now Obama knows that in reality he's not a world citizen and that there are no world citizens. But that doesn't mean the term doesn't have meaning for him and his fellow radicals. For radical progressive humanitarian leftists like Obama this world of divided nation states and peoples pursuing their own national interests and sometimes clashing with each other and violently in war is not the world as it should be...the world of the revolutionary future: the post-nation state world order where peoples and nations aren't divided, where there's no walls or boundaries separating them, where they work together in concert pursuing the same goals, aims and ends. In short, a world where all borders are erased and there is a single united one world democratic society and government: a UNITED STATES OF HUMANITY where each nation is a state in a united global democratic community with every member of the human race a world or planetary citizen. In other words, the "world citizen" of today is a leftist ideologue who hates the world as it is with its poverty, racism, conflicts and wars and works for the world of tomorrow-the world as it should and ought to be with humanity living in harmony, equality, prosperity and peace.
Radical leftists like Obama who fancy themselves as more than mere citizens of America (though they own but one passport) justify their view of world citizenship by saying that their primary concern (what they ultimately live for) is the good, well-fare and happiness of all mankind-and not for the narrow interests of a single nation viz. the United States. Consequently they despise Americanism and belief in our exceptionalism, and regard any sort of nationalism as selfish, small-minded and divisive dividing people from people, race from race, nation from nation causing poverty, conflict, war and every other evil. According to progressives nationalism and the nation state are what's wrong with the world and must be abolished-for them there is only one race, THE HUMAN RACE and ideally there should be only one nation of world citizens living under one democratic world government in peace sharing all material wealth equally and having the right to live where they please. This is the ideal world of the late Howard Zinn the communist writer and intellectual fraud who wrote the popular "Peoples History of the United States," a propaganda book of mostly lies about this country and its history designed to disillusion Americans with their country and cure them of the disease of patriotic nationalism with one world democratic egalitarian humanitarianism-the view of healthy, enlightened, politically correct human beings. This perverse subversive childish nonsense is being taught in our schools and universities and infects the entire radical Left from Obama on down-as it drives his administration into the ground.
AMERICA MUST LEAD THE WAY TO THE NEW BORDERLESS WORLD ORDER
Indeed, for Obama and the Left the United States' stature and power only has value and meaning as a means to the greater global good and new age end of abolishing all borders and nations in a one world democratic social state where all countries demilitarize and surrender their sovereignty to the all-powerful world governing body (out of the UN)-which, if it were possible, would be a corrupt tyranny of colossal proportions. Now because of its superpower status and immense prestige America, the Left believes, is the ideal nation to set an example for the world by being the first to erase its borders welcoming anyone into this country who wants to come. They believe that this would inspire other nations to follow our lead triggering a global anti-border movement where national boundaries would fall like dominoes and people could suddenly live wherever they please giving birth to Obama's post-nation state world order that he alluded to in his Berlin speech.
Of course this is well-meaning ideological insanity. The economic and social chaos that an open borders America would cause with its tsunami of poorly skilled, illiterate immigrants and criminals from Mexico, Central America and elsewhere would shock the world, get nowhere as a movement, and quickly die as the President and Congress responding to the deafening, hysterical public outcry would quickly shut down the borders.
LEFTIST OPEN HOME POLICY
Obama and the Left are at war with an orderly legal immigration system with secure borders ultimately for the sake of a borderless planet of world citizens where everyone can travel and move around from place to place without passports or restrictions. But I say to Obama and the Left if you want America to set an example for the rest of the world and pioneer this post-nation borderless revolutionary earth then it's only right that you lead the way and begin by setting an example for America. If you want an open door policy for immigrants assuring us it will do wonders for our economy and society and humanity then prove your point by starting with your homes. Knock down the fences that divide you from your neighbors and have an open door policy allowing anyone indiscriminately to live with you and your families who wants to; any good or bad person; any law-abiding man or criminal; any drug abusing homeless bum or sexual pervert. Open your doors and compassionate hearts to humanity and let's see how that works out for you.
