Now that Barack Obama is officially the President of the United States, the right-wing columnists at WorldNetDaily are struggling to figure out the best way to cope with the new president and Democratic Congress. So far, all they’ve been able to come up with is hoping that he fails.
Phyllis Schlafly writes that Obama’s presidency will be just like Bill Clinton’s and that he and Congress will repeat the “mistakes” of 1993 and soon find themselves voted out of office. Ben Shapiro predicts that it will soon “become obvious that Obama’s election was Americans’ superfluous attempt to move beyond race, not a broad mandate to remold the country” and that “Obama will learn the hard way that while Americans will never fail, presidents can.”
While most WND columnists seem content to let Obama to shoot himself in the foot and destroy his own presidency, WND founder Joseph Farah has decided on a more pro-active response by praying that Obama will fail miserably:
Many a coward has been bolstered in his conviction against challenging tyranny by not reading too deeply into the Scriptures. Yet, nowhere does the Bible ever suggest evil rulers are to be obeyed. When the rule of men conflicts with the commands of God, the Bible leaves no doubt about where we should stand.
That’s why I do not hesitate today in calling on godly Americans to pray that Barack Hussein Obama fail in his efforts to change our country from one anchored on self-governance and constitutional republicanism to one based on the raw and unlimited power of the central state.
It would be folly to pray for his success in such an evil campaign.
I want Obama to fail because his agenda is 100 percent at odds with God’s. Pretending it is not simply makes a mockery of God’s straightforward Commandments.
But just in case that doesn’t work, Burt Prelutsky has a back-up plan:
I know that armed insurrection is a notion that has occurred to quite a number of right-wingers, and while I admit that popping off a round or two in the general direction of Michael Moore, Rosie O’Donnell and any number of left-wing politicians is undeniably appealing, I really wouldn’t want to promote a second war between the states. At least not so long as there was a viable option. And, fortunately, there is. There’s Canada!
During the American Revolution, Americans who were loyal to England crossed the border. I suggest that we conservatives who are loyal to the America conceived by our forefathers pack up our principles, our values and our Constitution, and move north.
We may not have the numbers to win a presidential election here in the United States, but our 58 million votes in Canada (current population: 33,500,000) would be more than enough to ensure a conservative plurality for the foreseeable future.
Furthermore, having learned from experience, I propose that our first order of business should be to erect a large wall along our southern border in order to keep out the riff-raff.
You know, of all the suggestions posted on WND, this is the one we support most whole-heartedly.
