The Objective Eye

"Every movement that seeks to enslave a country, every dictatorship or potential dictatorship, needs some minority group as a scapegoat which it can blame for the nation's troubles and use as a justification of its own demand for dictatorial powers. In Soviet Russia, the scapegoat was the bourgeoisie; in Nazi Germany, it was the Jewish people; in America, it is the businessmen."
- Ayn Rand, "America's Persecuted Minority: Big Business" (1961)

Leftists Gone Wild

Now Playing: Marathon, from the Rush "Power Windows" disc - a song some clever, moving, play-on-words-laced lyrics

As you can see from the post dates here, I'd gone into one of my periodic, recuperative withdrawals from the sewer that is contemporary American politics over the last couple of weeks. But recently the hard-left Democrat Party has erupted with scandals all over the place, in a way that's becoming quite entertaining. It's really too bad that collectivists are running uncontested in this year's Presidential race...

* Last week an Obama advisor had to backtrack hastily, then resign, after calling Hillary Clinton a "monster" in an interview for a Scottish paper;

* Today former Democrat vice presidential candidate Geraldine Ferraro (a.k.a. Zaccaro) stepped down from Hillary Clinton's finance team after telling a Torrance, CA newspaper last week that "If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position. And if he was a woman (of any color) he would not be in this position";

* At 8 o'clock this morning Democrat New York governor ELIOT SPITZER, WHO, BY THE WAY, IS A DEMOCRAT, (for the benefit of those who get their news from the "mainstream" media,) announced his resignation from office after having been caught in the thick of a high-dollar prostitution ring - after a career of high-profile prosecution of...high-dollar prostitution rings;

* On a virtual daily basis the Obama's sweetheart real estate deal involving shady Syrian contributor Tony Rezko deepens, though I don't think we can expect the eco-fascists will be demanding that this one be turned into a nature preserve;

* A report today from Jeff Goldblatt says that Jeremiah Wright, Jr., the leader of the black supremecist church regularly attended by Obama since the late 1980s, may be in trouble with the IRS over political advocacy of the Obama campaign from the pulpit. In other...interesting moments from that speech, delivered on January 13, Wright said "Barack knows what it means living in a country and a culture that is controlled by rich white people. Hillary would never know that... Hillary ain't never been called a nigger."

This frothing racist's video can be seen here, if you don't mind a little nausea. (Keep in mind that this is what the Democrat-Socialist Party's Presidential frontrunner has been listening to every week for the last twenty years, with approval.)

As a footnote, recall that both racism and sexism, like the fascist/socialist strains of public policy being pushed by Clinton, Obama and McCain, are variants of collectivist philosophy - a.k.a. group-think. It's interesting that it's taken this long for those particular chickens to have finally come home to roost in the appropriate coop.

It's always edifying to watch the political opposition self-destruct before one's eyes. But again, it's really too bad the Republicans aren't fielding a candidate for President this year.
