Barack Hussein Obama is fond of telling Americans, “that’s not who we are,” when admonishing us about not agreeing with his policies.
It is Obama and his fellow travelers, who are, in fact, “not who we are.”
Like earlier Nazi and communist propagandists, Obama and his fellow travelers traffic in myths, half-truths and, when necessary, blatant lies. In an Islamic context, it can easily take on the form of taqiyya and tawriya; Islamic doctrines that instruct Muslims to deceive when it is perceived to be in Islam’s interest.
Obama and his fellow travelers intentionally excuse Islamic terrorism by invoking the mantra of moral equivalence; the “we are just as bad or worse as they” argument, by framing it as an unhappy consequence of “Western misdeeds and faults.” It is a form of pathological self-criticism adopted by self-absorbed and morally self-flagellating liberals, but cynically and skillfully used by America’s enemies to undermine our will to resist the onslaught of radical Islam.
Unlike homicides due to insanity or criminal activity, Islamic terrorism has a unique goal; to demoralize and undermine the target societies to prepare the way for the global caliphate and the imposition of Sharia.
In Mountain of Crumbs, a memoir of childhood in the 1960s and 1970s propaganda-soaked Soviet Union, Elena Gorokhova explains the meaning of “vranyo”, the Russian word for a lie or half-truth:
“In Russia we played the ‘vranyo’ game on a daily basis. The government lied to us, we knew they were lying, they knew we knew they were lying, but they kept lying anyway and we pretended to believe them. ”
During the Soviet era, “vranyo” became the de facto way of life, an instrument of governmental coercion as well as a coping mechanism to endure both unbearable calamities and trivial annoyances of life in a totalitarian state.
In America today, “vranyo” is political correctness and radical Islam is a lethal threat rather than a trivial annoyance.
What is the nature of a religion, where the more “devout” you become, the more you want to kill people?
Make no mistake. Obama and his fellow travelers intend to soothe us into complacency and continue to pursue policies that will ultimately make us more vulnerable.
And that is no delusion.
