Am I kidding? Have I fallen into some identity politics trap of my own? Not really. But I am half-serious, half-sardonic, and utterly heartbroken. The world is getting ready to slaughter the Jews again. Free speech and true dissent are being storm-troopered into silence and shame in the American halls of academe. Gays in NYC are demanding the right to meet as “Queers Against Israeli Apartheid,” even while they remain utterly silent about Islamic gender and religious apartheid. (More about this later).
Thus, I am dreaming about what kind of candidate could possibly defeat Obama.
Ideally, my candidate would have to share my foreign policy views. She would have to cherish America and the West. She would have to understand that Islam has a long, long history of colonialism, imperialism, racism, and slavery and that America, while not perfect, is much more evolved in terms of an active anti-racist consciousness than is any Muslim country.
President Obama deeply dislikes, possibly even hates the Jewish state. His dislike is visceral and frightening.
My ideal African-American candidate would have to understand that the survival of Jewish Israel is paramount, that it is the world’s symbol of Western democracy and human rights, women’s rights, gay rights, etc. American ethics and laws, as embodied in our Constitution and legal concepts are derived from the Old Testament, not from the Koran.
She would have understand that the Jews are and were the original and indigenous “Palestinians”—dubbed so by the victorious ancient Romans–and that those who now claim to be “Palestinians” are merely Arabs who once identified themselves entirely in terms of their religion, tribe, clan, and ethnicity. Like the Jews, they were also once Turkish subjects or British subjects. Some grew up in Jordan, Syria, and Egypt, or lived there and elsewhere after 1948. The concept of a “Palestinian” state is a relatively new one and has been developed as a genocidal weapon against the Jewish state.
Above all, my ideal candidate would have to understand that America is the best country in the world; and that barbarian jihadists and American leftists mean to destroy it. She would have to defend America in a coming time of great peril.
Why in God’s name am I thinking along these lines?
Given the extraordinary pathology of Bush Derangement Syndrome, and short of Armeggedon, I do not believe that enough Americans will, without doubt, elect another white male Republican. No matter what his politics may be, he himself will be seen as retrograde, anti-woman, anti-gay marriage, anti-abortion, pro-racism, pro-war and as both dull and evil. The media, combined with Soros and Saudi monies and our intelligentsia have poisoned the minds of millions.
Hence, I offer a desperate but interesting idea for a desperate and interesting time.
