The Kernel in a Nutshell

It's the envy, stupid!

“What Obama doesn't want to believe is that Islamist thought and, often, actions are endemic through the Muslim world because to believe that would be to acknowledge that there is something systemically wrong with them that could not be blamed on us, the imperialists. Islam is, after all, their religious ideology. Jihad is their conception. Obama will do everything possible not to face this. […] This inability to confront the issue in an honest way has ramifications in Benghazi because, if this problem is not to be taken seriously, then security really isn't necessary. Al-Qaeda died with bin Laden[?] Of course, now obviously, it didn’t. Far from it. In fact, stamping out al-Qaeda is an extraordinarily difficult task because it doesn't really exist like a conventional organization. It is for the most part an ideology and for that reason can metastasize easily under multiple names. Indeed it seems to be constantly metastasizing. So when Obama goes on The View or Letterman he is hiding something far more significant than his choice between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey. He is hiding his viewpoint on the war of civilizations. It must feel very odd to him as one who grew up in atmosphere that assumed Western civilization was evil, at the same time that [Western] civilization gave him every honor and privilege. Now it’s yet more confusing as he is asked to defend the West against a deeply disturbed ideology that wants to engulf it. Talk about something difficult to explain on The View. Or in a presidential debate. But I submit to you that is what is lurking beneath the debacle in Benghazi.” [emphasis added]

Here it is in a nutshell: The Leftist worldview boils down to the perverted concept that Western enlightenment, which has enabled the almost ubiquitous availability of personal pursuit of happiness, is responsible for the evil outpouring of hatred and destruction in the unenlightened portions of the world. Whereas, it was the suppression of any improvement in the lot of individuals by the corrosive mindset of theocratic despotism from which Western enlightenment had sprung.

When Obama appears on The View or on Letterman, he visually and verbally demonstrates the incredible stupidity that underpins the Leftist worldview. Nevermind the innumerable contributing factors that obscure the kernel at the heart of our society's great divide: free phones; free lunch; free stuff; tax the rich; support illegals; open borders; closed minds; and on and on ad nauseam. The crux of the matter is that those who support Obama have the arrow of causality reversed. It is the backwardness from time immemorial that spawned Western enlightenment, not the reverse. Today's murderous hatefulness of Islamist ideology is based on envy, the deadliest of the seven deadly sins.

Yes Virginia; it is that simple.
