College kids like to think they have a keen sense of when they are being used and abused, and so I’d like to ask them whether they understand what Barack Obama is doing on his current “bus tour” of universities and colleges in western New York and Pennsylvania?
Obama says he is promoting policies that will “lower the cost of a college education”, such as having the federal government create a new rating system of educational institutions that could somehow be linked to how much federal aid such institutions receive for their students…..
I am not suggesting that he is lying: he is once again signaling a new tool of central control that will corral and then choke private universities into submission, making them dependent on patronage offers to federal bureaucrats in exchange for being allowed to breathe.
More fascism, in other words.
But back to my question: do college students and the adoring faculty I see high-fiving the American Hugo Chavez understand the real purpose of this Obama tour?
In fact the tour is nothing more than a campaign for the 2014 mid-term election. Obama knows he won the 2012 election with a coalition of women, young people, and Latinos, and he knows that if he can get a Democrat majority in the House he will remove the final obstacles to his complete destruction of freedom in our country.
Therefore everything this man does and says — every single thing — is now designed to bring about that election result.
Appearing on college campuses, sans tie and looking vigorous, is an unadulterated emotional appeal to the students’ unconscious minds: in November 2014, vote for Democrats.
He is clearly enjoying himself as he pulls the strings of his useful idiots.
Young people, can you wake up?
