Obama's a Radical, Who Knew!

In 2006, after blowing a 23 to 3 fourth quarter lead against the Chicago Bears and losing the game, former Arizona Cardinals’ head coach Dennis Green, in the post-game press conference, uttered his most famous words: “They (the Bears) are who we thought they were!” (The 43 second YouTube video of the rant currently has nearly 700,000 views.)

These are exactly my sentiments when it comes to President Obama. He is precisely who I thought he was: a radical liberal. This is reflected in his administration’s policies and its personnel.

His self-portrayal as a centrist and a post-partisan duped many people during the campaign and the election. In their lust to elect our first black president, many Americans were blinded to who Obama really was. With his political record, as brief as it was, and his personal past, aligning himself with the likes of Jeremiah Wright and William Ayers, things should have been more clear for a majority of Americans. Perhaps more can now see that Obama is doing nothing but being true to his real nature.

As proof of his radicalism, consider a few of the long list of deep-seated left-wingers that Obama has placed in his administration. Kevin Jennings, the Safe School Czar, was in Obama’s Presidential campaign as its Gay-Lesbian-Bisexual fund-raising co-chair. For Jennings, a “safe school” means a pro-homosexual school.

Jennings, a homosexual himself, founded the Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) and the Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network (GLSEN), which seeks to indoctrinate children at every grade level in every state in the pro-homosexual agenda. In his book, Always My Child, Jennings demands a “diversity policy that mandates including LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) themes in the curriculum.”

In another of his books Jennings tells about a young male sophomore who confessed a sexual relationship with an older man. Jennings never reported the incident and only told the boy, “I hope you knew to use a condom.”

John Holdren, Obama’s chief science advisor, better known as the Science Czar, coauthored a textbook (“Ecoscience”) in the late 1970s which advocated bizarre population control methods. According to Fox News, those methods include “forcing single women to abort their babies or put them up for adoption; implanting sterilizing capsules in people when they reach puberty; and spiking water reserves and staple foods with a chemical that would make people sterile.”

Ecoscience states that, “Several coercive proposals deserve discussion, mainly because some countries may ultimately have to resort to them unless current trends in birth rates are rapidly reversed by other means. Some involuntary measures could be less repressive or discriminatory, in fact, than some of the socioeconomic measures suggested.”

Obama’s Regulatory Czar, Cass Sunstein, has declared that “representatives of animals should be able to bring private suits to ensure that anticruelty and related laws are actually enforced. Of course, any animals would be represented by human beings, just like any other litigant who lacks ordinary (human) competence…If getting rid of the idea that animals are property is helpful in reducing suffering, then we should get rid of the idea that animals are property.”

These are just a sampling of the many loony leftists who occupy Obama’s administration. Along with Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, it is as if the inmates have taken over the asylum. Clearly, extreme liberals are now firmly in control of the leadership of the Democrat Party.

If you doubt this, consider why, with a significant majority in the House and a filibuster- proof majority in the Senate, Democrats are struggling to pass either of their signature pieces of legislation, health care and climate control. Part of the answer to this lies with many of the freshmen and sophomore Democrats who swept into the House in 2006 and 2008. Because of the make up of their districts, many of these Democrats are significantly more conservative than the heart of their party. Many of these will lose in the next election (2010) if they are seen as too liberal.

It is as if Obama and his ilk are aware of this but unmoved by the prospect. They seem so desperate to seize the moment and reshape the country that they are blind to the electoral (or any other) consequences.

Now that Obama is a Nobel Peace Prize winner, it is as if his radical liberal credentials are complete. All that is left to do is make the United States into the socialist nation that liberals crave.

This liberal dream can be defeated. There are certainly signs that a majority of Americans are waking up to what is really happening. I just hope that it is not too late.
