Why They Love Usama, Hate Obama, and How Obama Uses the Same Tactic at Home
That is the line of the Obama administration and its Newest Left supporters. All African-Americans should support the regime because Obama is black and anyone opposing him is a racist. All “Hispanics” should support the president because he really wants open borders and the turning of all illegal immigrants into citizens, while everyone else is a racist.
All women should support the ruling group and leftist ideology because it wants to give them free birth control and anyone on the other side hates women. And everyone who receives a government check has to support the regime or someone might take away their check. (Actually what’s most likely to take away their check is the bankruptcy of the programs due to overspending.)
In other words, the dominant forces in the mass media, academia, and the current government are tearing America apart by inciting interest groups to hate each other, to make war on each other, and to give loyalty primarily to their group -- no questions asked.
And this is precisely the kind of thing that makes Middle Eastern Muslims, who even if they are Islamists like the Muslim Brotherhood and the Salafist groups and hated bin Laden when he was alive, opportunistically turn him into a martyr. The creation of a hysterical mob mentality for political gain is not restricted to the Middle East.
