Three Cheers For The Day Of Fear


One of the most bizarre mainstream criticisms of President Obama is that he wants to turn America into the U.S.S.R.  

Amongst the evidences cited to support this criticism are claims that he’s transforming the Peace Corps into a “re-education camp” (Michelle Bachman), and City Year into an armed youth cult (Alex Jones) where communist czars join with unions and environmentalists (Glenn Beck) to pass both Soviet and Nazi reforms (Glenn Beck, Alex Jones, Lyndon LaRouche youth cult members), universal health care incinerates Nana and Pop Pop (Sarah Palin, Pat Buchanan, Chuck Grassley), Americans who don’t obey the government are locked in FEMA internment camps (Alex Jones, Glenn Beck) and… 

That’s where it gets a little blurry. George Soros for Supreme Ruler? One World Government? The Apocalypse? I don’t know, but I’m sure it’s something really, really bad.  

So. Part of this sinister, diabolical plan involves the Obama Administration reworking all those things Americans hold dear. And eliminating them. Remember, this is the guy who claimed he wanted to “get out of the mindset that led us into Iraq” back during the election.  

Changing our mindset? Sounds like communism. 

In a “Special Report” from the July/August issue of American Spectator Magazine, writer Matthew Vadum had a piece titled, “Obama’s Plan to Desecrate 9/11.” In it, he attempts to explain how Barack Obama and his minions of “far-left, environmentalist, labor, and corporate shakedown groups” are behind a “cynical, coldly calculated political effort” to turn 9/11 into a day that, apparently, “helps the left.” 

The evidence? “The president signed into law a measure in April that designated Sept. 11 as a National Day of Service.” So. President Obama is encouraging Americans to remember the terrorist attacks by doing something for their neighbors (as so many Americans did that day, and after) instead of doing…nothing. 

And you know what it means when Americans help each other without getting paid for it, right? Communism. 

To emphasize his point, Vadum uses the same scary buzzwords and phrases we’ve witnessed over the last seven months. Phrases like “extremist racial grievance”, “ongoing radical transformation of America”, “food banks” – all designed to frighten Americans into thinking the first and second paragraphs of this article are realities. 

Vadum even quotes an unnamed source that, really, could be anyone who agrees with the seven month Beckian radicalism sadly coming from more and more of the right’s mainstream mouthpieces.  

But this supposed source is hardly worth mentioning. It’s what Vadum editorializes from the source’s comments that is truly eye-opening. The hidden lead, if you will. 

“The plan is to turn a “day of fear” that helps Republicans,” Vadum writes, “into a day of activism called the National Day of Service that helps the left. In other words, nihilistic liberals are planning to drain 9/11 of all meaning.” 

And, really, isn’t that what it’s all about? Vadum cares about who 9/11 “helps.” Why? Because 9/11 is the only help the right has. They need their day of fear. They need the mindset that believes their sick smears. The mindset that got us into Iraq. 

If Obama encourages Americans to do things for each other on 9/11 – lend their neighbors a hand, work in a community garden, serve at a soup kitchen, etc. – the world might become a scary place for the right where it’s not considered communism for every American to buy into affordable health care. Maybe the wealth distribution gap begins to close again after being at its largest deficit since 1929, and we just might get out of that silly mindset that got us into Iraq.  

That’s what they’re fighting against. They need their “day of fear” to take place not just on September 11th, but throughout the calendar year. That’s how they governed over the last eight years, and it’s how they’re getting Americans to believe alternate realities about demons and concentration camps and whatever else. If President Obama takes that away from them, really, what else do they have?
