Barack Obama & the Death of Idealism

The former president’s deception and warmongering killed the “hope and change” he promised on the campaign trail

“Death of hope” is a good descriptive phrase applied to Obama, even though it is somewhat inaccurate.

I think ideals in and about America died long ago, in the mid- to late-1960s.

Obama’s running did ignite a flicker of hope that a miracle was somehow underway, but it really lasted a brief time, a few months, before it resembled a cigarette butt in an ashtray.

He proved to be a death’s head with the gifts of an alluring smile and a rich voice

It is only recently that we have learned the Pentagon secretly came to view Obama as an asset for their mighty work of destruction in the Middle East, a smiling Peace Prize-winner front-man who never flinched at bombing an killing for all of his eight years.

He is almost the very definition of a psychopath, superficial charm combined with the ability to manipulate while harboring murderous impulses and possessing no conscience.

Looking back at his campaign, his ability to assume the warm rhythms of traditional Black preachers with, “Yes, we can!“ while in fact offering, and then doing, nothing for his own people reconfirms the diagnosis.

He serves almost as a poster child for America’s brutal empire. A bright man of modest means with a career as an untenured lecturer was able to retire from the White House worth many tens of millions of dollars. That is what America’s empire is all about.
