Obama: Bringing Us Together Over Dead Bodies
A man like Senator Obama, who is so callous with regard to God-given human life, is unworthy of holding public office.
Read The Audacity of Death in the Wall Street Journal to see the extent to which Senator Obama, a scion of the SDS radicals of the 1960s and 70s, embraces the amorality, if not complete immorality, of soulless, so-called scientific, philosophical materialism.
His indifference to human life comports well with that of the liberal-progressive intelligentsia in the 1930s, who defended Stalin’s barbarity and indifference to human life, so long as it was in the service of the latest liberal-socialist dogma.
The very groups (ACLU and Planned Parenthood) who today promote murder by abortion were, in the 1920s, promoting eugenics in order to reshape society in conformity with so-called scientific socialism. Their supporters, notably Madison Grant, wrote books to support eugenics for breeding an elite society that would promote the scientism and liberal-progressivism that had overtaken Ivy League schools and, at the beginning of the 20th century, had spawned the first degraded generation of American liberals.
Mr. Grant’s book, The Passing of the Great Race, was cited by Hitler’s henchmen to rationalize the Holocaust. Ironically, Mr. Grant supported laws against miscegenation, of which Senator Obama is a product.
