PostHeaderIcon Confederacy of Fools

The following was a post in the comments section of another website. I haven’t the slightest reason to doubt it’s veracity:

Sometimes people from outside our country see us better than we see ourselves. The following statement was translated from a Czech Republic newspaper editorial.

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.”

“The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”

How embarrassing… but, I simply couldn’t agree more. ◄Dave►

    Republicans, the other “Confederacy of Fools”, figure they’re a slam dunk in 2012. Well guess what? FDR won a second, third, and fourth. He did it without the internet and the MSM in his corner? What was it Yogi Berra said, “It’s deja vous all over again.”

    Read this book (nonfiction horror); “The Roosevelt Myth”, John T. Flynn, Copyright; 1948, 1956, Revised Edition 1956. Preface to the Revised addition:

    It has seemed advisable to offer a new edition of this volume for a very obvious reason. In the eight years since it first appeared a great mass of testimony has come from various witnesses whose evidence was not available when this book was written. In the main this testimony has completely buttressed and confirmed the facts as they appeared in the original edition. But some of those new revelations have made necessary certain revisions throughout the text. As an example, Chapter II in Book Three originally made no mention of the treasonable activities of Harry Dexter White, Assistant Secretary of the Treasury under Henry Morgenthau. White dominated that Department and was thus able– as an agent of Soviet Russia__ to induce Roosevelt to accept a secret Stalin plan for a post-war Germany against the wishes of Roosevelt’s own cabinet members, Secretaries Hull and Stimson. The fully documented story of this almost unbelievable betrayal of America’s interest will now be found in the chapter mentioned.

    Other additions to the Roosevelt story have been made in a Postscript, which serves as a reappraisal of Roosevelt’s character and his regime as we look back over the 11 years since his death. It is hoped that this Postscript will add to and enliven the portrait of Roosevelt and the New Deal which this volume contains.” John T. Flynn, Bayside, Long Island, May 1956

    The book is available on Amazon.com. I searched for a hard copy and found one copy in our library system in southwest Mississippi. It has never been re-printed…..Surprise ……Surprise!

      Excellent recommendation, Chewy. The reviews on Amazon were awesome. If it were available as an e-book, I would already be perusing it. Thus, I put it on my ‘wish list’ for my next shipping purchase.

      I cleaned up your comment’s formatting. When composing a comment offline, perhaps try a double carriage return between paragraphs before pasting here.

      Thanks for the tip, I look forward to reading it.

    Flynn’s book was an interesting read. I read it in the late 1960’s and still have a hard cover copy in my library. I think O’Bama is going to be difficult to unseat. It is becoming increasingly difficult to see a fair election. Maybe comments relating to the Third Reich are not far of the mark. The Ominous Parallels by Leonard Piekoff are another book pertinent to these times.
