Obama Likens Gulf Oil Disaster To 9/11, As If Free Market Enterprise Is Akin To Terrorism

Obama – who has all but destroyed relations with one of our closest allies in Israel – has gone on to all but destroy relations with our very closest ally of all.

From an article which the Desert Sun appropriately entitled, “Gulf disaster jeopardizes U.S., British relations”:

Obama has said he would have fired BP’s top executive if he were in charge. He embraced the idea that the oil company suspend its quarterly dividend. He reproached BP for spending money on a public relations campaign. This past week, he said in a television interview, “I don’t sit around just talking to experts because this is a college seminar; we talk to these folks because they potentially have the best answers — so I know whose ass to kick.”

He occasionally refers to “British Petroleum,” although the company years ago began using only its initials and is a far-reaching international corporation with extensive holdings in the United States, including a Texas refinery and a share of the Alaska oil pipeline.

The angry words from Washington have produced a backlash in Britain, where BP is viewed as a corporate pillars. Millions of British retirees depend on BP dividends since pension funds are heavily invested in the oil company, the world’s third-largest.

I have written that Obama should start by kicking his own ass elsewhere.  But that’s another matter.

Obama has been hard at work undermining the historic relationship between England and America since he took office and told England it could have its crappy bust of irrelevant Winston Churchill back.

Oh, well.  What’s a special relationship that has stood for nearly two centuries and led to victory over evil in two world wars?

How does that any of that compare to the gain of directly attacking capitalism and the free market system when you’re a Marxist?

The Lonely Conservative has an article that includes Youtube video of Obama adviser Robert Reich calling for the US to socialize – er, nationalize – BP.  And Reich (and Maxine Waters, of course) are joined by uber-liberal Rosie O’Donnell, who says:

“Seize their assets today. Take over the country, I don’t care. Issue and executive order. Say BP guess what…call it socialism, call it communism, call it anything you want. Lets watch Rush Limbaugh explode…on TV when he talks….SEIZE THE ASSETS, take over BP.”

So I’m just agreeing with a liberal icon and calling it what it is.

And in that spirit, we have this latest:

Obama likens Gulf environmental disaster to 9/11
Jun 14 09:37 AM US/Eastern President Barack Obama likened the disastrous oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico to the September 11 attacks in an interview published on the eve of his fourth visit Monday to the stricken region.

“In the same way that our view of our vulnerabilities and our foreign policy was shaped profoundly by 9/11, I think this disaster is going to shape how we think about the environment and energy for many years to come,” he told Politico.com.

Obama said he would be making a fresh bid to get Congress to pass a major energy and climate bill.

He was quoted as vowing to “move forward in a bold way in a direction that finally gives us the kind of future-oriented … visionary energy policy that we so vitally need and has been absent for so long.”

“One of the biggest leadership challenges for me going forward is going to be to make sure that we draw the right lessons from this disaster,” he said.

Flopping Aces has several humorously illustrated pictures that get to the heart of the joke Obama and his stupid remarks are:

Some 56 days into the disaster and this is the best this fool can come up with???  Seriously???

Is BP like Osama bin Laden?  Is free market enterprise no different from al Qaeda?  Should our response to BP and the free market system be war, such as it was following 9/11?

Apparently so, according to the latest from the Failure-in-Chief.  You don’t think that Karl Marx and the demagogic propagandists his ideas inspired wouldn’t have compared capitalism and the free market system to a terrorist entity that we needed to declare war upon?

Obama is once again revealing his profoundly deep Marxist roots that go all the way down to that tiny black shriveled thing he calls his soul.

And apparently drawing “the right lessons from this disaster” means more Stalinism.

Obama, in the mantra of his chief of staff, has the position to “Never let a serious crisis go to waste.  What I mean by that is it’s an opportunity to do things you couldn’t do before.”

Is the oil leak that is turning the ocean black a disaster?  Not for Obama: it’s an opportunity to usurp more power from the private sector, to seize more power for mega-government.  For Obama, hard-core leftist ideologue, the oil disaster is an opportunity to impose his cap-and-trade system, which had been DOA.  It’s an opportunity to impose a system which he himself said would make energy prices “necessarily skyrocket.”  Who cares if it is shockingly expensive?  Who cares if it amounts to yet another Marxist redistribution of wealth?  Who cares if little people get hurt?  The government will be to tax more, and have more power to regulate every detail of our lives.

Obama and his people are Marxist-facists.  They are demagogues; they are fearmongers and propagandists.  They are out to undermine our relationships with our greatest allies, and they are out to undermine this country in hopes of being able to impose a Marxist system following an engineered economic collapse (see also here).

The UK Telegraph features a piece which is considerably nicer.  It basically says that Obama isn’t a Marxist plant out to destroy America, but rather just a pathetically ignorant cheap political opportunist.  Here’s how the article begins:

Increasingly, political judgment as well as basic common sense is being suspended in the White House. We are witnessing not only the dramatic dumbing down of US policy under the Obama administration, with cheap soundbites standing in for strong leadership, but also a staggering inability to comprehend the scale of the global war the West is engaged in, as well as a disturbing willingness to downplay its importance and forget the scale of the loss the American people suffered nine years ago.

And from that high point, Nile Gardiner, in this piece entitled, “The Gulf oil spill is not 9/11: the Obama administration plumbs new depths of stupidity,” takes off the kid gloves.

Ignorant dumbass or Manchurian Candidate?  You decide.

    Please do me a favor, before you think Obama and his people are Marxist-facists, demagogues, fearmongers and propagandists, stand in front of a mirror, then look straight to your image.

    I think that will answer your question.

    This is about taking responsibility and be amenable to whatever actions you do. Are you saying if your best friend accidently burned your house and killed your family, you just say “oh shucks it’s just happens sometimes”.

    I looked in the mirror, morly. What was I supposed to learn?

    If I was supposed to learn that it’s wrong for me to call Obama and his people out for being Marxists, fascists, demagogues, fearmongers, and propagandists, then why is it okay for you to call me out as being such now? If it isn’t wrong for you to do it, then why is it wrong for me to do it?

    I get this all the time from relativists. I call it the passive aggressive tyranny trip. I get liberals lecturing me on how wrong I am to judge people and say they’re wrong, and I’m like, “If it’s so wrong for me to judge and tell people they’re wrong, then why in the hell are you judging me and telling me I’m wrong?” And invariably they say, “I’m not judging you!” The hell they’re not. They’re just hypocrite weasels who cannot possibly live up to their own screwed-up values.

    That’s first. Second, for the record, I’ll never see a Marxist or a fascist when I look in the mirror, because both Marxism and fascism are leftist and socialist big-government philosophies – and I’m a limited government conservative. U.S.S.R. stood for Union of Soviet SOCIALIST Republics. NAZI stood for National SOCIALIST German WORKERS Party. You’re asking me to look into the mirror and see YOU, not me. So that’s just pretty much utterly ridiculous.

    Third, it is simply a fact that Obama and his people are demagogues, fearmongers and propagandists. I’m sorry the truth bothers you so much.

    Obama is a demagogue. That one is easy. Obama has demagogued BP to the point that our closest ally is utterly outraged with us, and our relations with Britain are now jeopardized. Obama has demagogued the entire oil spill, by trying to “keep a good crisis from going to waste” by demanding that we pass his cap-and-trade boondoggle that will do absolutely NOTHING to cap the damn hole that’s spewing all the oil and creating all the disaster in the first place. He did nothing when it mattered, and then rushed in with all kinds of Nixonian demagoguery as the outrage mounted.

    Demagogue. Check.

    Obama as a fearmonger is another easy one. He’s been fearmongering from the beginning. From the Wall Street Journal:

    President Barack Obama has turned fearmongering into an art form. He has repeatedly raised the specter of another Great Depression. First, he did so to win votes in the November election. He has done so again recently to sway congressional votes for his stimulus package.

    Fearmonger. Check.

    Obama demonstrated that he’s a propagandist in making the blatantly false propaganda claim that we’re only drilling in mile deep water because we’ve run out of places to drill.

    OBAMA: “Oil is a finite resource. We consume more than 20 percent of the world’s oil, but have less than 2 percent of the world’s oil reserves. And that’s part of the reason oil companies are drilling a mile beneath the surface of the ocean — because we’re running out of places to drill on land and in shallow water.”

    Well, that is simply entirely false. We have ALL KINDS of oil to drill for that doesn’t involve our drilling in deep water. We’ve got huge oil deposits that are going untouched in Alaska. We’ve got huge oil deposits on our landmass in the Bakken formation. We’ve got some 85 BILLION barrels offshore, and another 47 BILLION barrels of oil on our land.

    Then there’s Obama’s citing expert opinion on the drilling commission as grounds for his issuing a six month ban on drilling. The experts’ opinion was exactly the opposite. But the White House – in a shocking display of dishonesty – added language to the report after the experts signed off on it in order to falsely create the illusion that the scientific community was FOR the ban when in point of fact they were against it.

    Propagandist. Check.

    I don’t know how my pointing out those facts makes me the kind of guy who shrugs off having someone burn my house down and kill my family. What a whackjob psycho analogy that is, anyway.
