Obama’s Disgusting Rhetoric

Share Button

Many have been flabbergasted at the Presidents apparent lack of knowledge about the Supreme Court case of Mabury v Madison, which did indeed establish the power of the Supreme Court to declare a federal law passed by Congress and signed by the President as unconstitutional.

That is pretty astounding, considering he’s supposed to be a Constitutional scolar.

But there is something else he said this week that caught my ear. From obama’s speech at the Associated Press luncheon:

“Disguised as a deficit reduction plan, it’s really an attempt to impose a radical vision on our country. It’s nothing but thinly veiled social Darwinism,”

Excuse me?

My friend Dan at Gay Patriot commented on the significance of Obama’s comments in relation to the Clinton budget, but everyone is missing the real significance of the “Social Darwinism” comment.

Think about the term and how it’s been used over the last century and more. It has been justification for all sorts of atrocities and prejudices, from racism to eugenics to Nazism to state sterilization of the mentally challenged and infirm. I generally scoff at the notion that people use “code words”, which is usually an accusation tossed at Conservatives by Liberals to try and portray Conservatives as racists. Well, in this case, although he apparently isn’t that familiar with the aspects of Marbury v Madison, I think it’s hard pressed not to conclude that this was the “Unifier-In-Chief’s” veiled and half clever way of accusing Conservatives of wanting to off cleans society of the poor and minorities.

I find his use of this rhetoric to be vile and ugly. I wonder how the press would have reacted if the previous President would have said anything like this about his political opponents.
