Revenge on the Bitter Clingers
I’m gonna take a stab at answering my question. Obama is literally pushing people to snap, attacking the very sanity of the country. To what end? Aside from wanting everybody’s name on a list of some kind, why is Obama doing all of this? I mean, all of this is so in our face. Everything that people hold dear is under assault, deliberately making people upset. This is not what presidents do. Deliberately making people upset.
Maybe this is about revenge. You know, Obama used that word when he was on the campaign trail prior to the election. He told his supporters in Ohio to go vote and get their revenge. Revenge against who? Well, obviously, the people that disagree with Obama. But who are those people? He clearly knows who they are, and I think the root of this, I think the answer to my question can be found in the comment that Obama made when he thought he was off the record at a fundraiser in San Francisco, when he talked about the bitter clingers. These are people that the liberals all know. These are the not very bright people that want life to never change. They don’t want any progress.
They want to remain cloistered in their archaic, antique past, and when things don’t go right, when there’s too much change, when there’s too much progress or progressivism, like when there’s civil rights laws, they don’t like it. When there’s gay rights and gay marriage, they don’t like it. When there’s all kinds of cultural rot on TV, they don’t like it. And so what do these people do? They get bitter, and they cling to their guns, and they cling to their religion. They cling to their antipathy for people that don’t look like them, and this would include minorities and immigrants and so forth. Maybe it is that that’s who Obama wants revenge on. Maybe he has an active dislike for the people he calls the bitter clingers.
