Since the early twentieth century, Western society has been in the grip of a culture of repudiation â€“ rejecting one by one the institutions, offices, traditions and achievements of the past, while having often little but sentimental emptiness with which to replace them.
While Wolverton’s cartoon is just another of his Leftwing insults to our President, there is some accuracy to this particular imagery. President Trump’s foreign policy is bold, brash, and quite ham-handed in comparison to the status quo that came into being after the end of WW2.
But 60+ years of that status quo has achieved very little. Indeed, the only great strides made in the realm of geopolitics were the result of what were at the time declared be ham-handed actions and policies, e.g., President Reagan’s handling the USSR which helped in their resultant fall.
So, ham-handed? Certainly by what has become traditional standards. But President Trump’s foreign policy has already seen positive results despite best efforts of the Democrats and their propaganda corps.
Obama is still defending the nuclear arms deal he brokered for the Ayatollahs in Iran. I’m forced to give the boy a measure of credit; he’s become a staunch defender of his allies in the Middle East.
This time, however, Obama has made his reasoning for supporting Iran over American interests more clear. It has to do with his cultural preconceptions and propensities when dealing with America.
I recognize that resorting to force may be tempting in the face of the rhetoric and behavior that emanates from parts of Iran. It is offensive. It is incendiary. We do take it seriously.
But superpowers should not act impulsively in response to taunts or even provocations that can be addressed short of war.
The majority of the Iranian people have powerful incentives to urge their government to move in a different, less provocative direction, incentives that are strengthened by this deal. We should offer them that chance. We should give them the opportunity.
Obama’s take on geopolitics and his foreign policy positions make a lot more sense now. When the boy sees or thinks of America he sees or thinks of “White America” and couches his agenda in the same terms as the Blacks couch their domestic agenda.
Just as Obama and the rest of the “Black Community” don’t think that Whites should ever respond forcibly to the behaviors of the Blacks, no matter how offensive or incendiary, he believes that America should ever respond forcibly to other nations’ – especially non-White, non-Christian ones – provocations. In either case, we should in Obama’s and the Blacks’ opinion give them chances and opportunities.
Simply put, insofar as Obama is concerned, America has to give Iran whatever it wants because we’re White.
That was most certainly a boldly blunt assertion by Mr. Cheney and certain to be inflammatory. It’s definitely a statement that a large number would vehemently dispute. Only Americans and their traditional allies think so pooryl of Obama. Our enemies, both foreign and domestic think otherwise.
