The Left seeks to do “nation building” here at home

A refusal to identify the enemy is a recipe for failure, and this predated Obama.

by Daniel Greenfield

Over a decade after thousands of New Yorkers were murdered by Muslim terrorists, the city’s mayor is declaring victory in the War on Salt. Next up he plans to wage a spring offensive on Styrofoam cups. After that, who knows?

We live in surreal times. In the Middle Ages, cats and rats were put on trial. In this modern age, we are fighting wars on food ingredients, the bags we carry them in and the containers out of which we eat and drink them.

There’s no telling what surreal enemy our wise and brilliant leaders will declare war on next. Shoes? Pepper? Umbrellas? Mathematics? The color blue?

There’s just no way to know anymore.

The United States has lost the War in Afghanistan, a minor matter that no news outlet can find the time to report on because they’re too busy covering a breaking story about a Republican senator taking a sip of a water. Maybe a War on Water can be next. Was there a Styrofoam cup involved? It’s time for one of those hard-hitting investigations that reminds us what a loss it will be when the last newspaper is strangled with the entrails of the last news network.

But who can find the time to fight a war against Islamic terrorists, when there are more pressing wars to be fought? Like a war on being fat.

Michelle Obama declared that obesity was a national security threat.  [........]

The military has been unable to identify the Fort Hood Massacre as a terrorist attack and fires any instructor who talks about Islam as anything other than a wonderful Religion of Peace practiced by our closest allies in Saudi Arabia and on board a plane headed for the Pentagon, but the political generals are always ready to jump on any truly serious national security threat.  [........]

Faced with a seemingly unwinnable conflict against the Soviet Union, American leaders began to retreat into smaller social wars that were actually far more unwinnable. Those wars have also gone the way of the dodo. The War on Poverty is one with the ages and the War on Drugs is usually only mentioned in a pejorative context.

But the same government that couldn’t get a small percentage of the population to stop doing cocaine and heroin imagines that it will somehow be able to compel 11-year-old boys to stop eating candy and drawing guns. A heroin addict is nothing compared to a normal growing boy seeking a sweet sugar rush before playing a game of cops and robbers.  [.........]

The government that couldn’t stop drug use or defeat Islamic terrorism has set its sights on something easier. Taking candy from a baby.

During his State of the Union Address, Obama announced that the mission in Afghanistan had been completed because Al Qaeda was defeated. Then he explained that while the war was over, American soldiers would have to go on staying in Afghanistan to continue fighting the already defeated Al Qaeda in a war that was no longer a war, but an extended vacation with shooting.

Since Al Qaeda did not have a significant presence in Afghanistan at any time during his maladministration, defeating it was fairly easy, and true to form it only cost thousands of lives. But somehow it still isn’t defeated. Still if fighting things that don’t exist gets applause, put your hands together for the War on Global Warming, which has recently been scaled down to Climate Change, which means that any time the weather changes, it’s probably due to people using the wrong kinds of light bulbs, driving the wrong kinds of cars and not paying enough attention to Al Gore.

[........]

During the election, Obama promised to begin “nation building” at home. Since that usually involves destroying a country’s military, wrecking its industrial base and then feeding them off the back of trucks while communicating with them only through interpreters, it looks like he’s making good on his promise. Chicago already looks more like Kabul or Baghdad than America.

Nation building at home means bringing the war home. Nation building is something that we usually inflict on our worst enemies in the hopes of teaching them a better way to live. It means wrecking the United States and then rebuilding it in the way that our conquerors see fit. All those little wars aren’t really being fought against salt, sugar, plastic bags and a thousand other tiny inanimate enemies. They are being fought against you.

Guns don’t kill people. And salt and sugar don’t eat themselves. Plastic bags don’t fill themselves with groceries and your old-fashioned gas guzzler won’t drive itself home from the store with plastic bags full of salt and sugar in the trunk.

The left has blown the war against Islamic terrorism. For the most part it has chosen not to fight it. Its real enemy isn’t some bearded guy sitting in a cave with a Kalashnikov being propped up by his fourth wife’s Hijab; it’s Mr. and Mrs. America in all their racist, overeating and polluting criminality.  [......]

What we can expect is a war on everything but the war we’re in. To the sort of people who declare war on salt and make up fake global crises to force everyone to pay more to fly, Islamic terrorism is just what happens when the sainted 3rd World gets tired of our overeating and overdriving, and begins fighting back. The understanding that the terrorists are not just out to protest the destruction of the rainforest or fracking, but intend to establish a totalitarian theocracy based on over a thousand years of bloody history never even enters the minds of the sort of people who declare wars on salt and Styrofoam cups.

In New York City, an awkward skeletal tower stands near where the World Trade Center towers once touched the sky. And on some lamp posts you can still see the faded imprint of missing person flyers. But there is good news. Mayor Bloomberg reports that the war on salt has been won.

    This is insanity. If Al Qaeda is defeated in Afghanistan, why stay?
    How about pursuing them where they are & bomb them to Allah?

    The Weather Underground used to yammer about “bringing the war back home.”

    The Firesign Theater had the following from the end of their “Don’t Crush That Dwarf” album:

    We’re bringing the war back home
    Where it ought to have been before
    We’ll kill all the bees and spiders and flies
    And we won’t play in iceboxes lying on their sides
    We’ll wash our hands after wee-wee
    And if we’re a girl, before
    And we’ll march, march, march et cetera
    ‘Til we never need march no more…

    Well, that last is pretty much where we are now. The Left is “bringing the war back home”—and mandating that we all wash our hands after wee-wee. Meanwhile, the President yammers about how people are “wee-wee’d up” over his piss-poor performance.

    Hmmm, could the Canadians actually be dumb enough to fall for that?

    They seem right on point…

    How far is America from the Bolshevik State? The administration is already forcing health care providers to report on the activities of other citizens. How soon will American children be reporting ‘revolutionary activities’ to their teachers? How soon will American priests essentially compose a secret informant network? How soon will neighbors begin calling in about one another in hopes of avoiding being sent ‘somewhere’ themselves? If Obama, who associated with militant communists like Bill Ayers, and the Weather Underground during his college days, pretty soon, and he shows no signs of letting the American congress have a say.

    Looks like Panetta had his “beret moment” on the way out the door:

    Panetta Creating “Distinguished Warfare Medal” For Drone and Cyber Combatants, Medal To Be Rated Above Bronze Star

    Some warriors inside the Pentagon are reacting with amusement and anger over outgoing Defense SecretaryLeon E. Panetta’s decision to create a prestigious heroism medal for cyber and drone combatants who sit inside stations outside a war zone.

    Mr. Panetta is exiting the building as a man generally admired by the Pentagon population, including hundreds of those tested in battle, for his hawkish views on killing Islamic terrorists and his devotion to the troops.

    But he is now also the brunt of jokes for his announcement Wednesday that he had created the Distinguished Warfare Medal and placed it high on the medal prestige list.

    “I suppose now they will award Purple Hearts for carpal tunnel syndrome,” said a retired Green Beret who does contract work for the Pentagon.

    Examples of those eligible for the new medal include service members who operate Predator drones over Afghanistan or Pakistan from the shelter of an air base, and military computer whizzes who defeat cyberattacks by China.

    It is not only the award itself, but its placement above, in order of prestige, the Bronze Star, that baffles and rankles some. The Bronze Star is awarded for extraordinary service to combatants in an actual war zone. It is adorned with a “V” if it is earned in direct combat.

    Yeah, the women that left their kitchens to make warplanes were particularly impressive; women doing any type of work outside the home was pretty rare back them. For them to make that transition and to do it so effectively was pretty special.

    Looking at the videos, my immediate though was that there were a lot of people my age thinking “oh my God, the Americans are friggin’ nuking us!”. Hell, that kinda thing happening during the Cold War could have radically changed the course of history…or stopped history in it’s tracks.

    Not so far-fetched if your an anchor babe at CNN.

    “Talk about something else that’s falling from the sky and that is an asteroid. What’s coming our way? Is this an effect of, perhaps, of global warming, or is this just some meteoric occasion?” CNN’s Deborah Feyerick asked Bill “The Science Guy” Nye, head of the Planetary Society, in a Saturday segment.

    And of course we all know that global warming is caused by man… settled science, etc… ////

    I worked with a Russian who would laugh and recount his days in the Soviet military going out each day to an anti-aircraft gun waiting for the Americans to arrive :-)

    :D That’s funny!. I’ve met several Russians and found them to be very warm, friendly people, though I’m still working on not instinctively calling them “Soviets”. I’d really love to visit Russia some day…..in the simmer of course, I despise cold weather.

    The fact that an adult anchor person of a “major” (I use that term loosely) news outlet could pose such a question and retain her job shows how irrelevant CNN has become.

    I’m like Rush. I live in Realville which makes it easy to laugh at the global warming fools.
