The Obama Scandals from Benghazi to the IRS; not due to inept leadership, but a concerted effort being waged to soften Americans up for what is to come.
I had written on this subject last week, and contended that Obama is waging war on America. Psychiatrist Dr. Keith Ablow observes that every scandal and issue that is related to Obama’s direct actions, is not incompetence and inept leadership, but rather he contends it is a concerted war effort aimed at the American mind. A psychological Psy-Ops designed to dispirit a people that their cause and country are unjust, and get a population to accept surrender to something ‘new’.
While the good Dr. is limited to focusing on the mental war being waged by Obama – I contend it is far more than just psychological. History shows us that whenever such Leftist ideologues engage in the same exact type of efforts Obama’s regime is currently engaged, it is not long before the dispiriting war becomes a violent and despotic war against the enemies of the state.
The bombardment on our national psyche is nearly constant. This softens up the entrenched opposition so that an actual assault against them is able to be conducted with little resistance.
Is Obama waging psychological warfare on Americans?
I believe that the Obama administration is conducting psychological warfare on conservative Americans. Not only that but it is also waging this war on all Americans who previously viewed themselves, their country, their Constitution and their overwhelming belief in God as a force for good in the world.
The psychological warfare began with an apology tour in which President Obama publicly “confessed,” presuming to speak for all of us, for the shortcomings of America and our supposed contributions to tyranny and all manner of evils around the world.
This confession planted in the American mind the notion that our values and beliefs might not be in line with freedom and truth.
…deep inside the American psyche, something more malignant could have been planted—the seeds of self-hatred and self-doubt. And I no longer believe that those seeds were planted unintentionally by people as smart and capable as the president and first lady.
…The techniques are often combined with black ops strategy, in which covert initiatives seek to dispirit, disempower and confuse adversaries.
The psychological warfare has continued, I believe, with other opportunities the president has had to make American’s question their individual freedoms and autonomy.
This has included misrepresenting horrific crimes, such as the one which unfolded in Newtown, Connecticut, as evidence of the need for gun control measures, when they clearly evidenced a need for revamping our mental health care system.
Gun rights are inextricably entwined in the American psyche with freedom to defend oneself. Attacking gun rights, I believe, is an element of the psychological warfare on the American belief that force is justifiable when confronting evil.
My belief that psychological warfare is being deployed on Americans by this American president and his administration has been solidified as news has come out of the targeting of conservative groups by the IRS.
…Seen through the lens of psychological warfare, the failure to defend our embassy in Benghazi need not be understood simply as a screw-up. It could reflect an actual strategy on the part of the administration to reinforce the notion that homicidal violence born of hatred toward America is understandable—even condonable—because we have generated it ourselves and are reaping the harvest of ill will we have sown. In other words, we should take our punishment.
The president said as much when he blamed the murder of our Ambassador to Libya on a film that criticized Islam.
This misstatement may disclose not just incompetence and may not just be evidence of a cover-up, but may be evidence of exactly what I am theorizing here: that the president, with the help of his administration, is attempting to conduct psychological warfare on Americans who value autonomy and free will and free markets and small government, by convincing them that they are wrong-minded, prejudiced and pathological and should deeply question their beliefs—including some ensconced in the Constitution.
The wiretapping of journalists would be, then, just another black ops technique in an ongoing war against our freedoms.
…I assert that this administration is engaged in a coordinated attempt to dispirit, disarm and disenfranchise large portions of the American population and to weaken our founding principles through what is best understood as psychological warfare.
