Letter to an American Patriot

Well, the Führer had his coronation, without being arrested or ruled ineligible for office, his rogues' gallery of a cabinet continues sailing through Congress, and leaders of the purported opposition party, e.g., John McCain, number among his biggest boosters. In the face of such revolutionary traitors and Quislings, a reader asks: What are patriots to do?

On Monday, I received the following letter from a reader who had seen my inauguration essay, “Should Obama be Sworn in… or Arrested?”.

I read and re-read the article, and am impressed with the amount of research it apparently took to extract all the facts presented. My question is not whether this man should be sworn in (he already was) or arrested (wishful thinking), but "How does an ordinary person like myself go about doing something to correct this dreadful miscarriage of justice? I've tried the Legislator and Senator route and get nothing in return. I've tried appealing to a newspaper, and got nothing in return. I talk with people who have more knowledge than me, more education than me, more enlightenment on the issues than me and who are as eager as me to do something. But we seem to all have hit brick walls. Where do we go? What do we do? Thanks.

I sent the response at the end of this column before learning that a company had published a “Little Red Book” of the Führer’s quotations. Granted, the Pocket Obama is blue, but that’s because in the run-up to the 2000 election, the socialist MSM came up with the idea of switching the traditional colors of politics, imposing their own traditional red on the GOP, which went along with the outrage, as it has gone along with most leftwing outrages in recent years, and adopting blue, a color traditionally associated with liberty, for their party.

The publisher of “Obama’s” Little Red Book, The History Company, says

His superb and captivating oratory style has earned comparisons to John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, and this historic collection presents words that catapulted his remarkable rise to the American Presidency. It is an unofficial requirement for every citizen to own, to read, and to carry this book at all times.

“An unofficial requirement... at all times.”

(“Catapulted his remarkable rise”? Doesn’t The History Company employ anyone fluent in English?)

Commenter mvfreeman at the Republican NewsBusters blog directs our attention to the entry for Mao Tse-Tung’s Little Red Book (aka Quotations from Chairman Mao Tse Tung), at Wikipedia/The Pretend Encyclopedia:

Among the most widely printed books in history, Quotations had an estimated 5 to 6.5 billion copies printed during Mao's attempt to transform Chinese society. The book's phenomenal popularity may be due to the fact that it was essentially an unofficial requirement for every Chinese citizen to own, to read, and to carry it at all times during the later half of Mao's rule, especially during the Cultural Revolution.

“An unofficial requirement... at all times.”

(“Quotations had an estimated 5 to 6.5 billion copies printed”? “The later half”? It sounds like the same foreign speaker who works The History Company wrote the W/TPE entry for the Little Red Book.)

A tip ‘o the hat to VDARE’s Alan Wall.

Keep in mind that already before the election, the Führer had demanded that the Department of Justice stop TV ads by Republican critics from airing, and had surrogates threaten critics with prosecution. He began laying the groundwork for destroying conservative talk radio, through the reintroduction of the so-called Fairness Doctrine. He also called for a domestic national security apparatus, to be as well-funded as the Pentagon, and which, rather than fighting terror, would keep the entire American people under surveillance, waging war against any dissenters among the American people. A gauleiter on every block. And since his inauguration, singling out Rush Limbaugh, the Führer has demanded that Republican elected officials not listen to conservative critics, and told them that because he won the election, they may not in any way disagree with him.

Some seasoned observers believe, correctly I think, that the “riot veto” kept the Supreme Court from inquiring into whether “Obama” was legally eligible to run for president. (In 1990, David Dinkins, New York City’s newly elected, first black mayor, was protected by the same riot veto from being arrested for tax fraud. Thanks to Dinkins’ moral precedent, we’ve since progressed to the point where a white tax fraud can sail through confirmation hearings to become the Secretary of the Treasury.)

With the foregoing in mind, here’s my response to my reader:

I'm as frustrated as you are, and write letters to my colleagues and editors just like the one you wrote me. Most of the time I then go back, as I tell my colleagues and editors I will, to writing stories about black-on-white atrocities and such, because it's what I know I am competent to do, even if it is much less than what needs to be done.

Prior to the election, my thinking was that a series of targeted lawsuits for violating employees' and students' civil liberties and civil rights against employers and educational institutions, and diversity trainers could weaken the diversity industry's pernicious influence. But the realization of what we are now up against makes that hope seem quaint and misplaced. We need to muster massive resistance, before it is too late. Lawsuits--and how I hate lawyers and lawyering, but that is all that some people understand--will still be necessary, but now they will have to be federal lawsuits intended to stop that man's destruction of America. Massive demonstrations will be necessary. Civil disobedience will be necessary. New media are necessary. And a new party is necessary.

Thanks for writing.

I now realize that my letter still does not tell an ordinary person, as opposed to an activist, what he can do, but it will have to do for now.
