The Obamanable Snowjobber: Marcusian Social Psychologist For President- & The Higher Learning By Associations

When there are no rational arguments for one's position, one may still learn from the Marcusian left, to DIAGNOSE the opposition. Diagnose small-town America as clinging pathologically to beliefs, when they could achieve enlightenment as to the cause of their alienation: the greed of the fat selfish bourgeois capitalists, who will not share. Never mind that those especially alienated from their society and its means of production do not volunteer for the armed forces at MANY times the national rate, do not volunteer for church and charity, nor maintain volunteer fire departments, at several times the rate of what is not small-town America. One may just diagnose them, and this is highly convenient for those who do not want to have to answer arguments from the other side. According to this George Packer post ,"He equated guns and religion with racism, xenophobia, and crude economic populism as the refuge of the hard-pressed—the false consciousness of the white working class who need to channel their financial frustrations somewhere. " Then why would immigration restrictionism appear at the top of an eight or more year expansion? Why would concern for gun rights be found in prosperous small towns, suburbs and exurbs, while zeal for gun control is especially to be found in inner-city poverty zones? Here's the Obama quote: "And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations". Apparently they can't have religious frustrations, or disatisfaction with police protection as a frustration, or displeasure with unwanted new diversity as a frustration, or frustration over the importation of stolen goods, or any frustration but an economic one that calls for more power for officials to intervene, and scholars to plan, a materialist, stress-free utopia (for the power-greedy).
Instead of being analyzed or psychobabbled by Obama, who is himself the applicant for the high security clearance, while it is the electorate who must decide on his fitness; let's look at his associations and learn.
Should he "value similar qualities in those with whom he associates, qualities such as:
honesty and following the law—and valuing that quality in others by not associating with someone who spent 10 years as a fugitive for bombing government buildings
patriotism—and valuing that quality in others by not attending the church of a man who condemns America ("God D*** America," the "U.S. of KKK A") and promotes terrorists such as Hamas in the church bulletin
not espousing anti-semitism— and valuing that quality in others by not serving on the board of a group that "mourns the establishment of Israel"
honesty and following the law—and valuing that quality in others by not having a 17-year friendship with a noted influence peddler and allowing him to fundraise for his campaign and work out questionable real-estate deals"? [ found here: 04/21 10:08 AM from Gregory S. McNeal ]
Daniel Larison on Wednesday, April 16th in politics said:"It is, of course, inconceivable that a major presidential candidate on the right could get away with having any political associations with domestic terrorists, regardless of how long ago those terrorists were active."
From an earlier post: To get the citizenry to accept minority rule, is the indispensable preliminary for despotic rule. This is why it is the worst elements at the high and low ends of social hierarchies, the ones who dream of breaking down resistance to total power for officials, who are enthused over Obama and the prospects for minority rule in general.
Added 6-12-08: The Minority Politics Of the Special Pleaders Is Unprincipled
and necessarily so. Because it is unprincipled and political, it has to be operating from base power motives, at least instrumentally. In high contrast, the majority interest is righteous in holding to democratic procedures which block minority power-greed. Today, in world-historical disgrace, the apotheosis of the special pleader is seen, in the institutional plumping for Obama. Of our institutions of any great size, only the military and some corporations, and uncommonly conservative organizations, appear likely to avoid this rush.

The Obama Nomination Should Greatly Offend One's Sense Of Justice & Fairness
At AmSpec, Jennifer Rubin, in Reject and Denounce, says:"If John McCain went to a David Duke rally, belonged to a church which, through its magazine, gave Duke an award and had close colleagues who celebrated Duke's achievements would McCain still be a presidential candidate?"
JB interjects: That is Obama's relation to Farrakhan. Rubin continues, referring to Farrakhan's hyper-racialized, anti-caucasian march on DC:
"In a Chicago Reader profile on Obama, Hank De Zutter writes that Obama "took time off from attending campaign coffees to attend October's Million Man March in Washington, D.C.
His experiences there only reinforced his reasons for jumping into politics." In fact, Obama told De Zutter: "What I saw was a powerful demonstration of an impulse and need for African- American men to come together to recognize each other and affirm our rightful place...'
'JB comments: Ferraro was right that Obama would not be in his present position, if he wasn't black. If he was white, he'd have zero chance, having used such racial solidarities and expressions. A negligible percentage of American journalists, politicians and academics, are even capable of a sense of justice and fairness, that could notice or take offense at this free ride Obama is getting. What disgrace is on the journalistic community in particular, who could be down so low, licking the boots of a Farrakhan rally communer...possible remedy: boycott of nationally advertised brands to punish the media

There's No Good Reason For A Leftward Move, That's Why You Get This...
"... growing chorus -- already nearing unanimity -- of liberal commentators and politicians ascribing an Obama loss to American racism [...].Andrew Sullivan of The Atlantic:'White racism means that Obama needs more than a small but clear lead to win.'Jack Cafferty of CNN: 'The polls remain close. Doesn’t make sense … unless it’s race.'Jacob Weisberg of Newsweek and Slate: 'The reason Obama isn't ahead right now is … the color of his skin. … If Obama loses, our children will grow up thinking of equal opportunity as a myth.'Nicholas D. Kristof of New York Times: 'Religious prejudice (against Obama) is becoming a proxy for racial prejudice.'Gerald W. McEntee, president of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, in a speech to union workers: 'Are you going to give up your house and your job and your children's futures because he's black?' "Quoted from this article by Dennis Prager, whose observations, especially that 'liberal commentators' are 'nearing unanimity' that only 'racism' can cause Obama to be voted against, are signs of what needs to be noted. If strong arguments were available as to why we need to take a hard left turn, greatly enhancing the power of officials here, there would be no tendency to coalesce around such a party line, to the effect that, only racial hatred can explain a vote against Obama.
