lesson in the many ways President Barack Obama has strived to “transform”
America, beginning with his first day in office in 2008. His latest action is
the appointment of a Muslim of The University of Memphis’ Leadership Education

Washington Post reported on October 17th:
Klain, who served as chief of staff to both Vice President Biden and former
vice president Al Gore, as his Ebola response
coordinator, according to a White House official. “He will report
directly to the president’s homeland security adviser, Lisa Monaco, and the
president’s national security adviser, Susan Rice, as he ensures that efforts
to protect the American people by detecting, isolating and treating Ebola
patients in this country are properly integrated but don’t distract from the
aggressive commitment to stopping Ebola at the source in West Africa,” a
White House official wrote in an e-mail.

Spacey portrayed in the HBO film “Recount.”

President Barack Obama announced that he would be appointing Ron Klain as an
additional Ebola czar (he already had one before today). If Ron Klain sounds familiar
to you, it’s because he has a long political pedigree. He has no medical,
scientific, or federal agency administrative expertise, but he has a whole lot
of political experience.
Klain stepped down as chief of staff for Vice President Joe Biden. Before that,
Ron Klain was a well-connected Washington lobbyist. According to Senate
lobbying disclosure records, Klain’s clients included Fannie Mae, U.S. Airways,
Time Warner, CIGNA, and Imclone.

Democratic Leadership Committee, and the Senate Judiciary Committee. But that’s
not all! Ron Klain did debate prep for both Obama and former president Bill
Clinton. And if that weren’t enough, Klain was also general counsel of Al
Gore’s election recount committee in 2000.
Democratic wonk, with no medical background except perhaps to take Tylenol or a
cold medicine, would be appointed the “Ebola response coordinator.” This is
tantamount to appointing gaffe-happy Vice President Joe Biden to manage a
linear accelerator program or as an assistant Attorney General in the
Department of Justice. Well, the latter might actually work out, given Eric
Holder’s reign of lawlessness in that agency.

Rule of Reason reader’s confusion over why many white America and British
females abruptly convert to Islam and express a wish to enlist in ISIS’s
campaign of terror, rape, looting, and conquest, and how Leftists and so-called
“feminists” are blind or indifferent to the ideological conflicts between Islam
and the Left, I replied:
anti-white culture is, of course, Obama. There is no other credible motive for
or purpose to his vicious policy of open borders to Mexicans, South Americans,
Somalians, Muslims of every ethic variety, but to dissolve “white” culture.
That makes him the supreme racist. He has expressed indifference to the plight
of the Yazidis, because they’re “sort of white,” and has said little or nothing
about the ISIS policy of raping their women and killing their men. The Yazidis
are, I’m certain, as bonkers about their religion as Muslims are about theirs.
But they are truly a minority not really declaring jihad against all
non-Yazidis. However, no one is brave enough to state in public that Obama is a
racist, as much of one was Rev. Jeremiah Wright or Louis Farrakhan (or Al
Sharpton, a frequent visitor to the White House, and Jesse Jackson).
The whole Progressive agenda, birthed by and in lockstep with that policy, is
also anti-white, anti-European, anti-West. Aged former-leftists, like David
Horowitz, were “red diaper babies.” They’re the neo-cons now, siding with
“patriotic” religionists and other parties (including much of the Tea Party).
Their younger brethren are still leftists, but I call them the “Pampers
Babies,” raised by liberal and left-leaning parents from the 1950’s onward, and
suitably brainwashed or at least lobotomized in their critical faculties in
their college years by professors and academics who took their cues from the
Frankfurt School and other, virulent, imported cultural philosophies.
(Parenthetically, this importation of those bad ideas to America began a bit
after the Civil War, when Americans returned from their education, especially
what they picked up in Germany.)
So, they’re not going to look askance at the rape culture of Islam – that would
be “cultural imperialism” or the like – but will natter on about the alleged
campus “rape culture.” That’s what they’ve been taught. They’re virtually
reason-proof. The verities of political correctness, as far as their stunted
minds are concerned, are engraved in stone. And, of course, a “rape culture”
can’t be pinned on anyone but males, especially white males. Blacks are largely
exempt from the charge, even though blacks have committed the most horrific crimes
against white males and females. Those crimes get little or no media coverage.
To report on them risks the charge of “racism.”
The violation of their principles by Islam bothers them not a whit, because to
criticize Islam on that point would also be seen as Western hubris and
Bad ideas – and especially bad ideas imparted by parents and schools – can work
their insidious ways into the minds of the young. They’re mostly defenseless.
Many of them grow up to be passive yeah-sayers to every and any altruist idea
(aka Leftist), or become activists of one stripe or another. They’re like the
Muslims who protest their innocence regarding the atrocities committed by their
activist coreligionist jihadists; they don’t commit the crimes, but don’t
object to their being committed either, their protestations that ISIS et al.
have nothing to do with Islam to the contrary notwithstanding.

civilization that made it possible. Western civilization did not originate

set Western civilization apart from all others: reason and individualism.
