The Politico argues that America needs a king who is above all laws and politics to keep the country functioning.
In 2013 New York City elects an open Communist/Marxist as mayor and in 2014 the Left is arguing that America needs a king.
No it’s not a joke, it’s not the onion. The Leftists are serious: they want a king. Politico’s Michael Auslin argues that because of political gridlock and the fact that the country is divided – that a king is necessary to ‘unite’ the people.
…today we need a person who can sit above politics and help strengthen our commitment to republican values. We need a king, or something like one.
As the only nationally elected official, the president has become a symbol of the country. Such symbols, whether in a democracy, monarchy, or authoritarian state, must serve a purpose above politics, both at home and abroad.
He says a president cannot do that, but a parliamentary system and a monarchy grant that ability – and this imbecile argues that we need a king.
To save what is left of our common fellow feeling as Americans, we need to create a position above the presidency. As republicans, of course, even a constitutional monarch won’t do. Since we already have a constitutionally mandated chief executive, let’s call the new national symbol our First Citizen.
…They are hungering for a national symbol that can truly unite the country.
God and Christianity used to unite the country. As Alexis DeToqueville noted in “Democracy in America” churches and a vibrant Christian faith is what was the secret power to America’s success.
A Christian people in this nation had no need of a monarch, king or dictator. Christ was their King – and it was an affront to the Colonists to lay obeisance to any man who would make himself king. In fact, in the Colonies before the War of Independence, the people believed that obedience to a king was breaking the First Commandment – and the slogan ‘No King But Jesus!” was the firebrand to spread the flames of Independence. That is because they believed either God will be our King or their king will be our god.
On April 18, 1775 John Adams and John Hancock were at the home of Rev. Jonas Clarke, a Lexington pastor and militia leader. That same night Paul Revere arrived to warn them of the approaching Redcoats. On the Lexington Green the next morning, British Major Pitcairn shouted to the assembled Minutemen; “Disperse, ye villains, lay down your arms in the name of George the Sovereign King of England.” The immediate response from someone of Clarke’s company was: “We recognize no Sovereign but God and no King but Jesus.”
But the Left today – after vaunting Obama as a messiah and allowing him to act as a dictator, are now arguing that we need a king, to answer the opposition to MarxoFascism.
The truth they are not spelling out is the fact that they have no interest in ‘uniting’ the country whatsoever. They simply believe that a single monarch, dictator, emperor, KING – will be able to stomp out any opposition to MarxoFascism more effectively and impose that ideology by decree. They already have the messiah man-child they consider a king, they simply want the official title and crowning to make their fantasy become reality.
