Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Barack Obama—Tweedle-Dee and Twiddle-Dumb!
No two men joined by emotional/ intellectual propinquity have done more to destroy the American ethos than Rahm and Barack. Even their prospective names denote something strange and distant. Rahm, born of a pediatrician who fought in the EZL [Irgun], grew up to become a ballet dancer. Everything about his past history denoted a socialization process which would lead a normal man into an effeminate career.
Rahm’s outward demeanor of brashness belied an insecurity that screamed for attention and compliance. To those who felt he had some modicum of talent, like the Clintons or Obama, he was seconded into their respective services as a ‘fixer’. However, like his Hollywood brother, Ari Emanuel, their narcissism drove them each into a field of endeavor which entailed extreme measures of manipulation and prevarication.
Rahm has never admitted to greasing the failed Obamacare by having his toddy, Obama, pay the pharmaceutical industry over 80 Billion dollars in order to extract a failed health care initiative. Similarly, when Ari bought out the William Morris Talent Agency, he initiated a system of reimbursements to clients which bordered on malfeasance.
Neither Emanuel brothers have anything in common with America; or its ethos. They are strictly the product of Diaspora Jews whose loyalty to Israel was far greater than their allegiance to this country. They were socialized to help the IDF at a time when many of us were drafted/offered to serve in the US military during many conflicts. Their socialization was centered around ballet dancing in a city, Chicago, which screamed of violence and murder. Their schooling tended to the mediocre and on the yin side of education. Thus, the notion of American sports like baseball, football, or guns was at best alien, if not completely discouraged. Ari and Rahm were turned into Peter Pan boys who never had to confront violence or combat mano a mano.
They each chose a profession where backroom guile, insinuation and emotional tantrums were the only means of motivating others. Intimidation by screaming and yelling was the keystone of Rahm’s apparent success in the greasy pole of politics. Their companion, Obama, was the dark equivalent of each of them, fearful of taking an outward appearance of American pragmatism. Instead, Obama, hid behind the imperial mandates of drone wars and ‘signature assassinations’, the hallmark of a military coward. Like the two ersatz American brothers, Obama never took the time to understand the cultural differences between Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and the deep Christian South cross-pollinated with the masculine imperatives of Wyoming, Montana or Idaho. All three individuals were as far removed from America as one could conceivably imagine; engrossed in a culture of feminine traits and Chicago chicanery—a deadly mixture ready to explode.
Now, the recent cowardly death of a Laquan McDonald, a 19 year old Chicago teenager mercilessly shot 16 times by white officer Jason Van Dyke, has erupted into a manifestation by the citizens of Chicago who are demanding the resignation of Mayor Rahm Emmanuel. The reason is simple. He acted in accordance with his vile, corrupt personality of hide and seek. Along with his cohorts in Chicago and his ‘best buddy’ Obama, he covered up the murder as one might expect of a spoiled male ballet dancer whose only ‘trick’ was to lie and ‘dance away’ from the truth.
However, in the meantime, his best friend ever [BFE], Obama, the equally flagrantly effete POTUS, decided to enact one of his more macho scenarios of ‘gun control by executive action.’ Clearly unhappy with the results of his lies, deception and betrayals, Obama, the errant knight of Fairy Land, decided that the false Sandy Hook story plus other ersatz scenarios of make-believe gunfights was not enough to convince the American public that guns, in themselves, were dangerous. Obama has done absolutely nothing to stop black on black gun violence in his hometown of Chicago. This seeming contradiction between words and actions reveals a basic fear wherein POTUS has not and will not address the issue that was his to claim—why blacks have a higher rate of murder than any other minority group in this country?
What will POTUS do in his own backyard in Chicago where the blacks have the strictest gun controls in the country and are still killing each other at a rate far greater than in any other area of the country where gun controls don’t even exist?
I contend that both Obama and Rahm Emanuel are ineffectual role models for any normal male socialization pattern anywhere in the USA. Obama is far more concerned with pronouncing rights for minorities like LGBT or “same-sex marriage”, rather than deal with the nitty-gritty of disarming black gangs either in LA, NYC, SF, Miami, et.al.
Neither person, Obama and Rahm, are really representation of the American male. What they are and what this country has become are petulant teen-agers who yell, scheme or manipulate their way into wealth and prominence.
Theirs is the way of the past, and now we must wait for the future to arise in the guise of entrepreneurial competence and masculine bravado. There is a difference, my friends. If we don’t discard these two models of effete socialization, we, Americans, will pay a very onerous prize.
