“And then it started like a guilty thing

Upon a fearful summons.”

—William Shakespeare, Hamlet, Act 1, Scene 1

Dinesh D’Souza doesn’t think Brother O’s failed policies are the result of his being clueless in economic matters or his having a European socialist’s bent for redistributing wealth. D’Souza argues that Obama has incorporated his father’s anticolonial ideology and is out to destroy America, believing that America’s wealth came as the result of her invading, occupying, and looting the poor countries of Africa, Asia, and South America.

“The well-being and progress of Europe have been built up with the sweat and the dead bodies of Negroes, Arabs, Indians and the yellow races.”—Frantz Fanon, from The Wretched of the Earth

Obama’s father grew up during Africa’s struggle to be free of European rule, and Brother O saw his father’s anticolonialism as a great and noble cause. For D’Souza, Brother O’s book title is significant. He points out that the title is not dreams of my father, but it’s Dreams from My Father.  In other words, Brother O’s not writing about his father’s dreams; he’s writing about dreams that he has incorporated from his father.

From a very young age and through his formative years, Obama learned to see America as a force for global domination and destruction. He came to view America’s military as an instrument of neocolonial occupation … [and] capitalism and free markets [as] … code words for economic plunder.—Dinesh D’Souza

According to D’Souza, Brother O’s worldview sees America as selfishly consuming the world’s resources and ruthlessly bullying and dominating the rest of the planet.

[A] Luo tribesman … is now setting the nation’s agenda through the reincarnation of his dreams in his son. … The invisible father provides the inspiration, and the son dutifully gets the job done. America today is governed by a ghost.—Dinesh D’Souza

In 1984, Citizens for the Republic, the organization established by Ronald Reagan’s reelection campaign, released its legendary “Morning in America” ad, which is considered one of the greatest political ads of all time. The ad captured Reagan’s optimism and confidence in America’s future.

Today, the situation’s reversed: Americans are worried about their future and about the leftist Democrat Party’s policies that are destroying their country.

Citizens for the Republic’s new ad, “Mourning in America” is a throwback to the 1984 ad, but the twist points out the failed leadership, the out of control government growth, and the government’s usurpation of the people’s ability to make important choices.

Citizens for the Republic have created an effective ad, in fact, one of the best. Take a minute and check it out, perhaps you’ll agree.

The Florida Democratic Party claimed it was an “oversight” when it put Republican Allen West’s Social Security number in its attack mailer.

The Florida Democratic Party mailer attacks West for having an $11,081 tax lien in 2005 that was paid off four months later. The lien notice was pulled from public records in Indiana and reproduced in the mailer with West’s wife’s name removed, his address blacked out, but his nine-digit Social Security number left intact.

West called the incident “an unprecedented new low in American politics.” He is challenging reprehensible incumbent Ron Klein in a race that has received national attention.

“I understand politics is a tough business. I expect to be challenged about my ideas, my beliefs, but Ron Klein has clearly crossed a line. I’m not yet sure the potential damage that might come to my wife and me, and it makes me sick to think of what could happen to my daughters. My entire family is at risk of identity theft.”—Allen West

Klein spokeswoman Melissa Silverman said the Florida Democratic Party “will take appropriate action to rectify the situation,” but refused to answer whether Klein’s campaign had been consulted about the mailer or had known about it in advance.

The West camp is looking into the possibility of legal action.

Why pray tell would Democrats stoop to personal attacks against their Republican opponents when they could run on their sparkling legislative achievements that have done so much to stimulate the economy, create and save jobs, and reduce health care costs?
