Suffocating Obama Adoration

Last week at a company lunch my highest local boss got up to make his usual announcements. He is a visionary who is well-respected within our company. So last week he chose to speak about what a great week it was, a week of hope for the entire world, a light at the end of a very long tunnel, and so forth.

I’m sure he violated all kinds of company rules about speech, but I’m not the litigious type who is going to run and report him for thought-crime. What bothers me is the appalling lack of etiquette and assumption that we all agree with him. Would I get to stand up and talk about how great a victory for the unborn it was had Senator McCain won? Of course not. And I wouldn’t anyway because in this society we’re not allowed to talk about abortion. 

I wouldn’t have done it anyhow though. I feel strongly about politics, but I keep it to myself at work. I’m not going to run around boasting about victories for our side or rubbing it in the face of others. Yet, the leftist masses feel free to rage at Bush and flaunt Obama and assume that you will agree or kindly shut up with your stone-age mentality. It is really hard to escape the gloating left right now, and it presages bad things for our nation. I can see how civil wars start.

  1. I agree with your thoughts. I too am frustrated at having to be P.C. and others don’t have to be. I’m mad at our governing bodies. They aren’t listening to the people anymore. The foxes are in charge of the chicken house…

  2. I understand your point, but if McCain had won I doubt there would be any changes in abortion policies. And therein lies the problem with presidential politics in the U.S.

  3. Well, I doubt we would have had the shift on the Mexico City policy which we had last week had McCain won. So already, Obama is proving to be worse than McCain on abortion.

  4. Ironic to read someone who is critical of Obama because of his support of abortion and then call for a civil war.
    For the Christian is one kind of violence wrong or is all violence wrong?
    And can’t you see beyond the single of abortion and be amazed that an african-american has just been elected President?
    A man who has among his abiding principles that we need to find a way to work together as a nation. I am looking forward to the day, and we caught a glimpse of it on inauguration day when terms like left and right become secondary to American.
    Peace be with you.

  5. Please read a bit more carefully, I did not “call for a civil war.” I said I can see how they happen – arrogance, boasting and a complete lack of understanding when it comes to the fact that we murder millions and millions of babies in this nation and call it good.

    All violence is not wrong. There are just wars, and the state bears the sword to punish evil.

    No, I cannot see beyond the single issue of abortion. All else pales when it comes to killing the most innocent amongst us. It’s like saying, “can’t you see beyond the single issue of killing Jews” in Nazi Germany.

    Terms like left and right will never become secondary, it’s the nature of a nation with radically different ideas about existence.
