MARK LEVIN: OBAMA IS A CHARISMATIC DEMOGOGUE AND A HARDENED LEFTIST IDEOLOGUE

LEVIN WARNS US:
There is a cult-like atmosphere around Barack Obama, which his campaign has carefully and successfully fabricated, which concerns me. The messiah complex. Fainting audience members at rallies. Special Obama flags and an Obama presidential seal. A graphic with the portrayal of the globe and Obama's name on it, which adorns everything from Obama's plane to his street literature. Young school children singing songs praising Obama. Teenagers wearing camouflage outfits and marching in military order chanting Obama's name and the professions he is going to open to them. An Obama world tour, culminating in a speech in Berlin where Obama proclaims we are all citizens of the world.

I dare say, this is ominous stuff.


Obama is a hardened ideologue. He's not interested in playing around the edges. He seeks "fundamental change," i.e., to remake society. And if the Democrats control Congress with super-majorities led by Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, he will get much of what he demands.


... So in the tank are the media for Obama that for months we've read news stories and opinion pieces insisting that if Obama is not elected president it will be due to white racism. And, of course, while experience is crucial in assessing Sarah Palin's qualifications for vice president, no such standard is applied to Obama's qualifications for president. (No longer is it acceptable to minimize the work of a community organizer.)

Charles Gibson and Katie Couric sought to humiliate Palin. They would never and have never tried such an approach with Obama.

But beyond the elites and the media, my greatest concern is whether this election will show a majority of the voters susceptible to the appeal of a charismatic demagogue.

This may seem a harsh term to some, and no doubt will to Obama supporters, but it is a perfectly appropriate characterization.

Obama's entire campaign is built on class warfare and human envy. The "change" he peddles is not new. We've seen it before.

It is change that diminishes individual liberty for the soft authoritarianism of socialism.

It is a populist appeal that disguises government mandated wealth redistribution as tax cuts for the middle class, falsely blames capitalism for the social policies and government corruption (Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac) that led to the current turmoil in our financial markets, fuels contempt for commerce and trade by stigmatizing those who run successful small and large businesses, and exploits human imperfection as a justification for a massive expansion of centralized government.
RTWT.

Wasn't Mark Levin the first to warn of Obama's Marxist vision for the US?

Many thanks to him for his determination to head of impending disaster. Let's hope there is still enough of us who are not yet "Obamatized" to save America.

The criticisms against Sen. Obama in this article are nothing worse than fear-mongering and thinly veiled racism. The accusation of demagoguery is in itself demagoguery -- the misuse of information to generate fear and spread ignorance for political gain. Sen. Obama seeks change that is desperately needed in America: increased government regulation of corporations guilty of runaway greed and corruption, and heightened acceptance of those outside the economic mainstream such as our weakened middle class and disenfranchised underclass. Poverty, racism, and discrimination are rampant in this society, so Sen. Obama's use of the presidential "bully pulpit" to educate and lead America to a more perfect union can only be beneficial for our nation.

YUP:

LEVIN IS ONE OF THE BEST.

OBAMA WILL TAKE THIS COUNTRY DOWN THE ROAD TO SERFDOM.

THAT'S WHAT SOCIALISM IS.

LESS LIBERTY = LESS PROSPERITY BECAUSE PROSPERITY IS A BY-PRODUCT OF LIBERTY.

OUR NATION WAS FOUNDED ON THE PRINCIPLES OF LIFE, LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS.

SOCIALISM DIMINISHES THOSE.

THE USA IS BASED ON INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS AND A GOVERNMENT OF LIMITED POWERS.

OBAMA WILL REVERSE THAT.

IF WE LET HIM.

IT'S UP TO US.

THANKS FOR COMING BY AND COMMENTING!

The question is not between individual freedom and government, the choice is between industry and government. You just have to decide for yourself which one you trust more. Considering the kind of predatory practices we've seen in the corporations lately, I'm going to trust Obama's administration to do what is right.

But I agree that his tremendous charisma is disconcerting... even though I'm an Obama supporter, his cult-like following needs counterweight. Fortunately, that's what Republicans are for :)

sorry matthew:

yours is a false dichotomy.

the govt can NEVER do anything as well as private people.

the reason?

people risking their own capital always do it better.

bailout removes risk - the "moral hazard" - and skew the system.

if gobvt did thing better thsan we'd all be driving soviet cars.

and north korea would be richer than south korea.

and china would be maoist.

zimbabwe would be richer than rhodesia.

and so on.

IF YOU LIKED THE WAY THE GOVT RAN THE MORTGAGE INDUSTRY THEN YOU WILL LOVE THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION.

MORE PROOF OBAMA IS A SOCIALIST.

http://astuteblogger.blogspot.com/2008/10/audio-proof-from-2001-that-obama-is.html

BTW: THE SOCIALISTS IN EUROLAND CALL THEMSELVES SOCIALISTS.

SOCIALISTS IN THE USA DON;T BECASUE THEY KNOW THEY WON'T GET ELECTED.

THAT'S WHY OBAMA IS LYING ABOUT WHO HE IS, ABOUT AYERS AND ACORN AND THE NEW PARTY.

IF OBAMA IS A MODERATE FOR THE MIDDLE CLASS THEN BUSH IS REALLY MADONNA IN DRAG.

McCoy said...

George is right above. Claiming Obama is a socialist panders to the worst elements in people; ignorance and fear. Karl Rove successfully exploited these things in the wake of 9/11, but the gig is up, and America has had enough of this nonsense.

Either the GOP will evolve and learn that peddling this anti-intellectual garbate is self-defeating, or it will continue to hysterically screech itself into political obscurity.

Censoring comments won't change reality, reliapundit. What you're selling, people ain't buyin' anymore. And that's a good thing.
