Obama and Bush Are the Same Person

I wrote this email to a friend earlier tonight. Shared here for your amusement:

I can't believe we're in another fucking war in another fucking Muslim country. What kind of crazy fetish does our government have? Was there a single regular American who wanted this war? No. It's only the DC policy-makers who ever thought this was a good idea. I'm seriously wondering what the difference between Obama and GW Bush is. One wants universal health care controlled by the government while the other wanted upper class tax cuts and school testing? Is that seriously the only difference? One is brown and half-Kenyan and the other is pale and a fake-Texan... is that all? What in God's name are we doing flying jets over Libya and bombing? I have to believe that if anyone other than Obama was ordering this (imagine if John McCain was ordering the same action), people would be out in the streets protesting left and right. All the lefties are huge hypocrites as far as I see it. They don't really care about war, they only want to rag on the "bad guys".... if their own guy does the exact same thing, they look the other way. It really makes me see how much politics is all about tribe. Red tribe versus blue tribe. Both tribes hate the other tribe. Each tribe defines itself as being NOT THE OTHER TRIBE. But the actual content of your own tribe-leader's actions apparently don't matter. War in Libya for no apparent reason? Sure! As long as that privileged Yale frat boy Bush isn't the one ordering the bombings, it's somehow this magical freedom project and we are "helping democracy." Barack Obama is black and a Democrat, so it's totally cool when he starts a war for no reason at all. Poor children who get bombed in Iraq are considered American war crimes (which I agree they are); but poor children who get bombed in Libya are just regrettable, unintended consequences, and Barack Obama is still some magical beautiful angel? Both sides disgust me utterly.... Republicans and Democrats. I knew George W. Bush didn't have an ounce of regular humanity in his body; I'm pretty sure Barack Obama doesn't either. But all the "YES WE CAN" people around me seem not to notice, because their team is winning right now. They don't really care about dying children; they just want the blue team to beat the red team. Shameful.

A guy burned a Koran in America and several dozen people were killed in Afghanistan in response. The proof that "Islam is a religion of peace" is apparently to kill innocent people. Way to prove your point, asshole Muslims. And apparently the best way to "encourage democracy" in Libya, Iraq, and Afghanistan, is to bomb the fuck out of the people living there. Way to go, America.

Our country has exactly two neighbors. One is completely and utterly harmless, and has always been a loyal and trustworthy friend, and shares basically the same culture as us, with some minor humorous variations (Canada). The other neighbor, Mexico, is a bit more different. It's culturally and linguistically different. It's poorer than we are, and as a result we have issues with Mexico about immigration and trade. But our only war with Mexico was more than a hundred years ago. Despite some very important and serious issues between the US and Mexico, it's clearly a basically friendly country. Our messed-up step-brother to the south. No one thinks Mexico or Canada is literally going to invade the USA (other than the band Rush, William Shatner, and George Lopez). France and Germany are best friends these days, and they have the oldest record of killing each other of any two countries in the world. As recently as 60 years ago, they were at each other's throats. So the idea that the USA and Mexico have "ancient rivalries" is true but also really, really retarded. There's no reason we can't just get over it. Mexico is not an enemy to us.

We have *no* military enemies. NONE. If any country in the history of the world wanted to just chill out, and spend time and money developing the well-being of its own citizens, it should be the modern USA. We have absolutely no reason to fuck around in international wars except out of our own choosing.

Our conventional military is huge and basically unbeatable. We have the world's dominant nuclear stockpile. No one fucks with our strategic allies (NATO countries, Australia, Japan).... no one would even ever *dream* of fucking with them, not even Russia, not even China. They know the USA is a big, bad, ass-kicking military motherfucker. It's the safest major power in the history of the world, and we happen to live in it. There is *zero* threat of foreign invasion. We are extremely lucky for our geography, but that's the way it is. We have as enemies: two huge oceans and two friendly neighbors.

So why... why... WHY... on EARTH.... are we involved now in a military engagement in fucking LIBYA??? What the hell??? What are we doing in Iraq? What are we doing in Afghanistan? FUCKING AFGHANISTAN!!! The whole Michael Moore plot line about petroleum and corporate profits is not wrong. It's true. But it does not have the explanatory power that neo-Marxist thinkers want it to have. There's something else going on. At some point we have to admit it's just the fucking government. The Kings of America. George Bush and David Frum and Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. It's a lust for power. It's just like the old Roman emperors. They fuck with other people just because they can. I mean, the anti-Khadaffi forces in Libya are OPENLY supporting Al Qaeda. The people who most openly want to murder us and blow up our intestines. They openly admit they are extremist Islamists. And we are helping them??? Why??? Apparently in the name of "democracy," we must empower these shitheads. It makes me batty.

I don't think there's some big conspiracy. I don't think Obama is a secret Muslim or some such nutty theory. But I also don't think the conventional university professor theories work either. The basic boring theory that is taught to every single college student in America, like the manufacture of chicken mcnuggets, is that it's all about exploitation and corporations and oil. Certainly, the powerful exploit the weak. Welcome to Planet Earth. But that simply leaves too many gaps to explain the way things are now. I think that basically Americans are mad. Not mad-angry, but mad-insane. We have this insane theory that every society on earth has to be like our own, and if they don't act like us, they have to be either bombed or immigrated to the USA. So if Mexico is not like the USA, we need to get more Mexicans in the USA. And if the country is too far away and too small, like Libya, well then bomb the motherfuckers until they start acting like Americans. This is where Bush and Obama are basically the same guy. The whole world must act like Americans or else. It's absolutely insane. It's a religion, except there is no salvation and no grace and no beauty and no God. Only the ugly side of religion: eternal feelings of sinful guilt and eternal religious wars. "We must repent of our sinfulness by bombing Libya." Fucking nuts! Totalitarian humanism. Count me out, dude.

  1. I couldn't agree more. I've recently been getting into a particular historical theory which seems to make a lot of sense... while being weird as hell. Link: http://moldbuggery.blogspot.com/

    No conspiracy theory; just the progress of theological and political thought. I started off reading about how Dawkins is basically and atheistic Christian, and next thing I know I've wound up with an alternative view of history which points out that maybe the victors weren't completely honest about what happened.

    For example: if the US supports Israel - or peace for that matter - why the hell have they been waging a guerilla war with a bunch of savages for 60-bloody-years? Are they really incapable of strolling into the Gaza Strip, shooting anyone with an RPG, and deporting the rest to Egypt? Is it good for your average Palestinian? Your average Israeli? Who the hell is it good for?

  3. Mencius Moldbug is one of the most original and important thinkers alive today. He's not always exactly correct (what thinker is?). But he's way, way more provocative, and his analysis makes much more logical sense than the "analysis" of either the Left or Right mainstreams.

    His "Letter to an Open-Minded Liberal" is perhaps the single best political tract written in the contemporary age. But anyone who doesn't want their world turned upside down probably shouldn't click on Aurini's link.

  4. Glad you like him.

    I'd been sitting around the anti-statist camp for a while when I stumbled across him. Free-market anarchy sounds all good and fine, and maybe we'll pull it off when we colonize Mars, but I don't see it happening here on Earth any time soon. I like his thoughts on Corporate Monarchy.

    This guy's post http://www.singularity2050.com/ predicting the death of feminism in the next decade, as well as some other things, makes me suspect that we are about to go through a major historical shift in the coming years.

    Those who are writing may be able to have some influence on how things change.

  5. Let us not forget that whatever promises Obama made before taking office were very difficult to deliver including closing the famous g.bay... oh wait that is still open and noone has stood public trial.

    War keeps the economy ticking, so does oil and that dictates world politics...

  7. Obama is just a pawn like Bush was. Our government, media, and armed forced are all controlled by a shadow government of evil billionaires who want to enslave the masses. This is NOT a joke...

  8. Refreshing to read this. Speaking as an Irishman, it annoys me no end when America expresses an insatiable need for everyone else to be just like them. To my mind, you can trace it back to all that 'shining city on a hill' and 'last, best hope for humanity' nonsense. It's so arrogant and hubristic it makes me sick. Mind you, I'm not blind to very real greatness of America in many areas and the many good things it has given the world. But it needs to learn how to be part of the human race and to co-exist with others respectfully, rather than trying to set itself up literally as a 'new world' that must remake the rest of the world in its own image.

  9. Excellent writing ! I never believed that Obama was gonna change anything. he's just robotic puppet of the big industries.

  10. Dude... it's called oil and without it there would be no modern civilization and no GO-GO America.

    No oil equals no cars, no planes, no shipping, oh yeah and no modern military, etc. etc.

    Let me know when we find dylithium crystal and create warp drive and food replicators... I'll be busy in reality...

  11. Are you surprised? Typical politicians. They'll say whatever they can to get elected, but they have a certain skill of influencing that we can all learn from.

  12. I think its the fight for resources. Those who can control the supply of oil is king in the coming few years. I guess if oil no longer becomes the commodity of great importance, the fight will shift to another place.

  13. Uh. You are aware that the US has been at war (off and on) with Islam since about 1787?

    Of course I agree that doing Libya is stupid. But that does not mean we are not in a long standing war with Islam.

    Evidently it has turned hot again. I'm sorry you don't like it. I don't like it. Perhaps you would care to tell the Pirates Of Islam to stop. I'm sure they will listen to you. They don't seem to be listening to me. Perhaps I'm not projecting enough self confidence.

  14. Jeeze this is supposed to be an MRA site (at minimum) and all you guys are (as far as I can tell) lefties.

    Wassamatter? Not getting enough beatings from the lefty femminazis? I think I can find some butch girls to work you over if that is your thrill. Just give the word and I'll put out the call.

    Of course the the corparations in cahoots with the government are screwing us. More government is not the answer. More programs are not the answer.

    They have finally run out of other people's money. So shrink them. While we still can.

    Yeah. I'm a libertarian.

  15. Anyone who was not aware that Obama was a fraud by Nov. 2008 and voted for him deserves what we are going through. Some of us unfortunately are just along for the ride. Until Nov. 2012.

    Obama is following the FDR playbook. Which some economist think turned a severe recession into a Great Depression. FDR did it by attacking business. And not just the robbers. All business. Note the similarities?

    We have tried spending money. We are spending more money than we have ever spent before and it does not work. And I have just none interest, and if I am wrong . . . somebody else can have my job. I want to see this country prosperous. I want to see people get a job, I want to see people get enough to eat. We have never made good on our promises. . . . I say after eight years of this administration we have just as much unemployment as when we started . . . . And an enormous debt to boot!

  16. Damn, I was late to this party.

    How is criticizing U.S. actions in Libya leftist? The guy linked to Alternative Right of all sites. Libertarianism isn't necessarily conservative.

    Standing against the bullshit of the mainstream Right due to it not being conservative enough is conservative.

    Paleocons(or real conservatives) think wars like these in Iraq and Libya are total bullshit.

  17. F**king brilliant article dude! I live in UK and we have the same retarded mentality with our governments here. Only difference between conventional dictators and western dictators are you can choose a new one in the west every 4 years or so. They are all power hungry egomaniacs. IMOA
