The 15 Best Books for Understanding Barack Obama's Mysterious Political Theology
3. Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department by J. Christian Adams
4. Subversion, Inc.: How Obama's ACORN Red Shirts are Still Terrorizing and Ripping Off American Taxpayers by Matthew Vadum
Kurtz's books take a big-picture survey of Obama's overall plans, connecting all the dots. These two by my colleagues J. Christian Adams and Matthew Vadum focus more on his method for accomplishing it. To summarize in one word: crime.
Reading Vadum's and Adams's books, and editing their articles, has contributed heavily toward my reevaluation of this abstraction we casually call "the Left." Is this a political movement with a few criminals in it, or a criminal movement with politicians and activists in it? Read their books, glance at the Obama administration and their supporters, and decide for yourself.
In Subversion Inc, investigative journalist Vadum compiles his years' worth of research into the Alinskyite community organizing group ACORN to create an authoritative 400-page tome. He reveals a corrupt, urban terrorist organization that operates to shake down businesses and government. This is what community organizing looks like in practice: thuggish intimidation disguised as advocacy for the disadvantage, aided and abetted by both the Democratic Party and mainstream media. And Obama made his career representing and defending them, acting the good cop. And what did he get in exchange?
Adams' Injustice reveals the community organizers' secret weapon: voter fraud. As an attorney with years of experience investigating and prosecuting voter fraud cases, Adams knows the Alinskyite's criminal methods first hand. The mere fact that this goes on isn't the scariest part, though. Barack Obama's Department of Justice is complicit in it. Eric Holder enforces the Democratic Party line with the full force of his department: vote fraud doesn't exist, but suppression of minority voters is real and the requirement of a photo ID is racist. Who dominates the DOJ? See Adams and Hans Spakovsky's "Every Single One" series here at PJM, revealing the far left resumes of the new hires in Holder's DOJ. Do I sound crazy to my progressive friends when I tell them that the president has allowed Marxists to infiltrate our government so they can facilitate voter fraud to ensure his reelection?
Well, one crazy turn deserves another: what if I said that the heroic civil rights icon the president modeled his life on was an antisemitic con artist who changed his name each time he switched cults?
