Ryan:  Obama threatens Western values

Paul Ryan Says Obama Would Compromise 'Judeo-Christian Western Civilization Values'

By Shushannah WalshePaul Ryan squeezed in time on a four-stop, five-state day for a conference call with evangelical voters Sunday evening, issuing a warning about a second Obama term saying the president is putting the country on a "dangerous path" that compromises "Judeo-Christian, Western civilization values."

Evangelical leader Ralph Reed's influential group, the Faith and Freedom Coalition, hosted the call and Reed said "tens of thousands" of Evangelical Christians were listening in.

The GOP vice presidential nominee said in the "critical battleground states" it will make a "big difference" if people "are worried about…whether or not we're going to go down the path the president has put us on."

"It's a dangerous path," Ryan said on his opening remarks on the call, which has been rescheduled at least once. "It's a path that grows government, restricts freedom and liberty, and compromises those values, those Judeo-Christian, Western civilization values that made us such a great an exceptional nation in the first place."
Translation: Ryan says Obama would compromise the tyrannical rule of white lords and bishops. Because that's what most of Western Civilization has been.

What Ryan meant

Here's what Romney and Ryan are really fighting for:

Who Are You Better Than?

By Pile[N]ow the way the cards were dealt 18 months ago [in 2008] has upset a huge segment of the population. They no longer know who they are better than. They are lashing out. And there is f*ck-all for a safety valve and it does run 24/7 in a perpetual echo chamber.

They say it is about "freedoms"...but they can point to no freedoms that have been lost over the last 14 months.

They say the Constitution is being destroyed, but when you ask them what parts of The General Welfare Clause or Congresses' power to regulate Interstate Commerce are being violated...they stand mute with rage.

They say it is about taxes...but they can find no drastic tax increases in the last 14 months.

Come to think of it, I don't really remember anyone getting speared with an assegai thirty years ago either. But that didn't stop people screaming about the danger.

And they say they want their Country Back.

Well, Bing-f*cking-O.

Now we have it. They want to return to a time and place where they at least knew who they were better than.

And the fact that most of this spittle is flying from the mouths of the poor, the semi-educated, the low information voter, and from By-God Dixie...well, that is only because it is your turn. A lot of the rest of the Country has already gone through this exercise 20-30 years ago. And the same spittle flew from the same confused lips when it was our turn.

So we don't look on Tea-hatists with scorn because they are alien and unfathomable. We do so because we recognize these very traits as ours and those of our neighbors. "All in the Family" wasn't the most popular show in the Northeast because Archie Bunker was despised. It was popular because he was comfortably familiar. But at least he was a character. Nobody tried to run him for President.
Comment:  To sum it up, it's really about a black man's thinking he's better than "us."

In other words: The white man is no longer on top! The women, gays, and Muslims are coming! Man the barricades! They're out to destroy our civilization!

I wonder if the person ever watched the show? It was made by a strongly liberal activist named Norman Lear. Who was very talented at making TV shows. Add to that Carroll O'Connor's great gifts as an actor, and you have the reasons for the popularity of the show which made it a huge hit across the whole country.

I'm not sure why the writer singled out the Northeast, since All in the Family was popular everywhere. But his main point was about why Archie Bunker was popular at all. And I think he was right about Archie's being "comfortably familiar." We laughed at him because we knew people like that, not because he was alien and unfathomable.
