In referencing Ann Barnhardt's Ulsterman Report about the possibility of Obama staging a fake presidential assassination attempt--his 'Reichstag Fire', if you will, I had to ask myself what that would mean.... what would happen?
I was born in 1958, Obama in 1961, so he I walked in the same shoes of history, at that time--we remember the same things, were exposed to the same media--at approximately the same pace--with the same mention made in our schools, our homes, and in the streets. There wasn't any unusual occurrence--in Colorado, where I lived, nor Hawaii, where he lived--that marked either place absent from the news of the day; a rather middle-class upbringing was a rather middle-class upbringing everywhere, then.
This was the start of the 1960's and the space race was coming into it's own, the civil rights movement was gaining real momentum--and TV's were left on for increasingly longer times each day to tell us all about it. Dare I say it, they were mainstreamed into our lives--and there was one huge incident that dominated throughout. It was one with which I defined the world and, actually thought, for awhile, seemed endless (it was...): the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
Each year, it was reported identically with the same comments, tears, odd speculations, and Zapruder film. Nothing was altered or omitted--it's still done that way. Obama has to remember the way it was. It has to have imprinted itself on his mind and heart in just that same way. He has to recall how it was forced into every room in our heads--how every early '60's kid grew up with that icon of grief stamped on their feelings. To him, it was surely the 'biggest f-ing deal' out of 'big f-ing deals' we could possibly face--it WAS the worst thing that could happen to us.
And that's why it's just the perfect thing for him to use, now.
Upon the announcement of Barrack Obama's 'assassination', it first would be painted as an 'iffy' thing. Very risky, very chancy, very uncertain. No one, at first, will know if Barack has made it out alive. A funereal announcement will first be made first stating that the Presidential entourage has been under serious, devastating attack, and that he is, most likely... gone?. If she is with him, a frozen Michelle, agog with her shocked, 'I-see-an-elephant', face will be broadcast as she cobbles up some 'skin in the game', perhaps some torn clothing--an almost-bloody handprint will show on her skirt--as this is treated as a holy moment. She'll say to the wondering 'this is as serious as serious gets', and, eventually, 'this blood may be all I have left of his life' over and over, again.
America will go into instant vigil mode as 'Keep Watch' centers are staffed around America--even the world--as the privileged allowed to staff such things will walk around all whispering-and-tissue-paper shoes, lest any undue noise deliver his immediate corpse. The clock will slow to doom ticks, businesses will close 'out of respec', Congress will do no work, and the economic world will freeze, as the Fist Lady takes her plea to the public to 'stand behind our hearts', at this awful time'...
Dear God, the mediaverse will explode with inuendo and blame! Whole encampments will take up the speculation about what happened--the military may get involved. The Secret Service will fall over the F.B.I. The Attorney General will meet with a Congressional committee--and somebody will go find Joe Biden. Of course, the rightwing will be blamed; Dick Cheney's name will be dragged into it, somehow. The Bush dynasty will meet with the Clinton people. The Jackson/Sharpton/Wright pulpits will heat up the racism Sterno, and transportation around America will cease. Extra funds--to 'save' Barack--will immediately be appropriated and allotted to no one counting. A cry of 'whereis Barack Obama?' will be heard across the land--until people figure out that he has been lynched.
The hot embers of the left's nascent rage will began to burn with a fierce intensity. Every bit of moral outrage and nationalistic fervor with began to pour forth. A steely determination to 'save Western civilization, save mankind' will take fire in the bowels of the left--hotter than anything they've ever felt, more important than anything they could ever imagine doing with their lives, will grow. They will have their heaven-on-earth, their utopia--and they will be the saviors to bring it!This was what they had been waiting for all their lives!
You think Nazi Germany was bad? Wait until you see the Sustained Trajectory of the Future Universe (STFU)...
1--An 'assassination attack' on Barack Obama happens:
2--America will be shocked and grow numb with the possibilities of how it could've happened,
3--One huge forever possibility--racism--will quickly be brought to the fore,
4--The 'bitter-clingers with guns' will be blamed, but no concrete plan will be found out against them (that won't matter),
5--A leftist movement to 'save humankind' will blossom forth; all their worst plans will bear fruit,
6--Some group or person on the right--the Tea Party--will be singled-out to take the fall; we will be demonized, marginalized, as 'dangerous, selfish, anti-human',
7--A horrible doom will infuse America--that we could even be that awful, it will ruin our idea of American exceptionalism for all time... (that's what Obama has deeply wanted)...
8--At the last minute, Barack will appear--the hero--his escape and preservation will be termed a high tech, clever,brave, sexy thing,
9--The country will see how fast we almost 'lost' democracy amidst some horrible racist plot by the worst of us--and they'll clamor for Obama's 3rd term--forever term. His minions will wipe their brow at what we nearly avoided, and congratulate themselves for their bravery in 'saving' humankind,
10--And Barack will be made President for Life.... because he's the only one who can save us from our awfulest selves... (He always knew we were this awful; it's been his mission to 'fix' us--and he knew he could...) He was going to fix racism in this country, one way or the other--and any means necessary was fair game... it still is.
The fact that this was just some silly plot of Jarret--that it didn't really happen--will get entirely lost. People will only look at what they think we luckily 'avoided'--and who they think it was that 'saved' us... We'll NEVER hear the end of it! And we Morlocks on the other side will have...what? We'll never again be considered as good as the surface-dwelling Eloi.
