In any rational political environment, Barack Hussein Obama would be toast. Notice, please, the use of the word ‘rational’.
The left has been on a collision course with all things American since the 1903 Bolshevik revolution, led by Leon Trotsky and Vladimir Lenin, whose political-economic theories formed the basis of what was to become the Communist Party in Russia and the launch of the international Communist Party and its avowed aim of extending its tyrannical and repressive philosophy throughout the globe.
Trotsky and Lenin were political and economic theorists. That their collective ideology caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Russian citizens seems not to have caused them a moment’s pause. Lawlessness, fear and hysteria, generated by ideological zealotry and an inflexible and indiscriminate one-party political authoritarianism, led to poverty and repression that rivaled and exceeded the worst the Tsars could have ever conceived. The people of Russia simply traded one inflexible authoritarian rule for another.
That this pernicious political ideology would clash with the enlightened western democracies was never in doubt. Political and economic subversion were always the preferred method of attack.
