The New Emporer's Clothes

 

While driving from New Orleans to Dallas and back this week, I had ample time to listen to talk radio. I managed to catch a fair dose of Neal Boortz, who read excerpts from an article from Mark Morford of the San Fransisco Chronicle. It was a fascinating piece; so much so that I had to look it up and read it in its entirety myself. You can read the entire the article here: Barack Obama and good vibrations.

 
It seems that the people of San Fransisco have found a reason for supporting Barack Obama. Mind you, these aren't tangible reasons. They can't be measured by mere mortals in terms of foreign or economic policy. They can't be explained in terms of his past record or his future propositions. And the fact is that mere ordinary human beings as are most of us will probably never detect nor recognize the true nature of Barack Obama. As Mr. Marford explains:
 
“Many spiritually advanced people (not coweringly religious, mind you, but deeply spiritual) I know identify Obama as a Lightworker, that rare kind of calmly enlightened being who has the ability to lead us not merely to new foreign policies or health care plans or whatnot, but who can actually help usher in a new way of being on the planet, of connecting with this bizarre earthly experiment. These kinds of people actually help us evolve. They are philosophers and peacemakers of a high order, and they reignite the soul.”
 
Whether by design or by accident, the left has ripped a page straight out of Hans Christian Andersons' The Emporers New Clothes. Only in this case, the con is not perpetrated on the “emporer” but on the people. Here we find that the intelligent, the enlightened can see Obama's qualities and if you can't see it, then you're clearly something less. Yes us “coweringly religious” people who likely also cling to guns and antipathy are simply incapable of seeing the obvious and we had better keep our mouths shut lest we expose ourselves for what we really are.
 
So, like the child in “The Emporers New Clothes” I'm not afraid to shout aloud; “BUT HE'S NOT WEARING ANY CLOTHES!” Or in this instance, he's not bathed in light and he's not emitting any higher vibrations.
