Takuan Seiyo takes a look at yesterday’s election debacle and draws some hard conclusions (with which I completely concur) about the Republican Party.

“Barack Obama Reelection Signals Rise Of New America,” crowed Howard Fineman at Huff-Po on the night of Barack Obama’s re-election to the presidency. “President Barack Obama did not just win reelection tonight. His victory signaled the irreversible triumph of a new, 21st-century America: multiracial, multi-ethnic, global in outlook and moving beyond centuries of racial, sexual, marital and religious tradition.”
Indeed. But why did “old America” let it happen? And where is a single politician spelling out the future dénouement of this scenario, already unfolding before our eyes? Here is how the multiracial, multi-ethnic, global in outlook and moving beyond centuries of racial, sexual, marital and religious tradition self-congratulating society handles elections:
On November 6, as the vote in the US Presidential Elections was 52,524,449 for Obama and 52,025,784 for Romney, Mr. Romney made a gracious concession speech showing all of his strong points: poise, class, magnanimity, good manners, positive energy. Not one of the assets, however, that a Western leader must have in this day and age to even begin having a serious chance at tilting the rudder of the Titanic.
What gave Barack Obama the presidency was his win of Ohio. Obama got 2,668,783 votes; Romney, 2,567,825. The margin of loss for Romney was about 100,000, i.e. 1.9% of the votes.
Now, in just the few days preceding the elections, the following Ohio-related news could have been culled from the milquetoast media, though not the traitorous ones:
Ohio recount “nightmare” — 200,000 non-returned absentee ballots the verification and validation of which is shot through with possibilities of fraud and misuse.
It’s not to be overlooked in this context that Ohio law allows that the identity of the voter be proved by providing a current utility bill or bank statement. Neither proves that the voter is an American citizen…
But that’s just the beginning. Further news from Ohio were:
- More voting problems in Ohio as ballot cast for Romney comes up Obama.
- Ohio: 200 people in Dayton sent 2 absentee ballots…
- Ohio: Republican Poll Watcher Threatened with Gun, Voter Punched in Detroit
Does the above inspire confidence that the elections in Ohio were fair and square? And that’s not all of it either.
Consider that thousands of Ohioans serve in military assignments overseas. The precise number is unobtainable but since just the Afghanistan and Iraq casualties from Ohio amount to 109 (undated report at Toledo News, presumably up-to-date), the total number serving must be substantial. How many of them have been deprived of their (overwhelmingly Republican, for soldiers), vote? The design was quite apparent, and the thumbprints are clear:
- Absentee ballots sent to U.S. military serving in Afghanistan ‘destroyed in crash’…
- Thousands of ballots unlikely to reach military voters until after the elections
So what was Mitt Romney doing with that gracious defeat acceptance speech, instead of challenging the Stalinist-Maoist Party and its blatant mangling of the democratic process? Is it not possible that that 100,000 Obama vote margin in Ohio was a stolen margin? Moreover, the above does not tell the whole story nationwide, and the pattern it evinces, some of which must have worked in Ohio as well, under the observers’ radar. This was the pattern:
- Active-duty service members disfranchised by Fla. voter purge
- Florida: Obama Poster Hanging in Florida Polling Station…
It is probably not entirely coincidental that Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.), one of the more-hope-inspiring Republican legislators in Congress, lost in Florida to Democrat Patrick Murphy by about 2500 votes, out of over 318,000 cast in this race in Florida’s District 18. Florida has ludicrous voter ID laws, similar to Ohio, accepting as voter ID credit such ephemera as debit cards, “Neighborhood association identification,” “Public assistance identification” and other such. The farce of virtually inviting any resident of Planet Earth to come and vote in American elections, is so salient that even the not-quite-conservative UN poll-watchers were “amazed” the US doesn’t require IDs to vote, and allows other fraud-prone practices like voting online.
It’s not coincidental either that in June 2012 The Obama-Holder Justice Department filed a lawsuit to prevent the State of Florida from purging its voter rolls of… illegal aliens and other non-citizens. With the Democratic Party making a living by redistributing the wealth of America’s productive citizens to Democratic voters domestic and foreign, this was a clever maneuver indeed. But what about the likely 2500 Djiboutians and Toltecs whose votes cost Allen West his Congressional seat? And the votes of Florida’s soldiers serving overseas whose votes would have gone as one to the former combat Lt. Colonel?
The thin margin worked over Mr. Romney as well. He lost Florida to Mr. Obama by 0.5% of the votes, and could not benefit from the purposefully disabled military votes.
In Nevada, Romney lost fair and square, but that’s because demography is destiny and semi-literate and aggressively unionized Mestizos from South of the border now constitute Nevada’s major power block. It is much harder to accept the fact that the Stupid Party is at least as culpable as the Evil Party is in this population replacement scheme that spells its own assured doom. Still, election-related news leading to this banana republic election were noteworthy in Nevada too:
California too is a state whose bankrupt Democrat banana republic destiny is wrapped in its demographics. Still, it was unpleasant to read that “Thousands of dead [and assuredly Democrat] Californians remain eligible to vote.”
In North Carolina they tried hard, though the state eventually went to Romney:
- North Carolina: Mentally disabled exploited to vote…
- North Carolina: Killer registers and votes from NC mental hospital…
- North Carolina: Poll Worker Tells People to Vote Democrat
In Texas, Mr. Obama’s tribal organization known as NAACP took over Houston Polling Station, to advocate for him. In Philadelphia, the adorable Black Panthers, having been encouraged by US Attorney General Holder to do so, returned to intimidate at a Polling Site. At other sites, Republican poll inspectors were being forcibly removed and replaced by Black Panthers and other Democrat faithful. A more staid polling station in America’s cradle city merely featured a large mural of Barack Obama. Of course, America’s legal establishment, acting in its normal role of the destroying hammer, had already smashed any possibility of honest elections in that sorry and once great state. A month before the 2012 election Pennsylvania’s courts effectively disabled state voter ID laws. On November 6, a Pennsylvania judge barred any ID inquiries in a polling place near Pittsburgh.
All this comes on top of Obama’s army of illegal election workers and Obamoid thugs threatening violence against Romney voters, per news items such as:
- Black pastor receives death threats after reversing support
- Obama supporters step up riot threats…
- Bill Maher to Romney Supporters: ‘Black People Know Who You Are and They Will Come After You’…
Then there is the little matter of Obama’s army of illicit propaganda peddlers masquerading as journalists, entertainers, celebrities etc. Those organizers of the masses for the Great Leader comprised, among many others, AP running a poll days before the election to argue Whites’ increased racism, MSNBC actively telling viewers how to vote and ridiculing Romney for his help to Sandy Victims, the great constitutional scholar Chris Matthew asserting the Mitt Romney doesn’t understand the Constitution, Huff-Po and Salon.com making preposterous accusations against Romney days before the election, and so on, ad infinitum. Even the venerable Smithsonian Magazine ran as the main feature in its October issue a long piece about Thomas Jefferson’s slaving ways. As if the Oval Office were some kind of morality prize, rather than the captain’s post on what is unquestionably the largest Titanic in history, though still afloat.
The press should be not only a collective propagandist and a collective agitator, but also a collective organizer of the masses. — Vladimir Lenin
Shall we go into an analysis of the agitprop, with children singing that Romney will let people and polar bears “just die” and oil fill the seas. Or maybe the shining useful idiots of Broadway pleading “One Term More” for the Great Obama.
Romney got hosed, and the fate of the United States too. Perhaps with his willing cooperation, similar to that of John McCain in 2008. After all, Romney engaged in the third debate with an opponent whose chin was exposed throughout, but gentlemanly Mitt refused to land a punch. And no sooner has he lost that he appealed for end of “partisan bickering.” That was just days after Harry Reid, the Democratic Senate Majority leader, said: “Romney’s fantasy that Senate Democrats will work with him to pass his ‘severely conservative’ agenda is laughable.”
Lawrence Auster, an astute diagnostician of America’s multifarious pox, defined the American people’s choice in this statement: “America has two political parties: a party of leftist liars, criminals, and traitors, and a party of decent, nice businessman types who won’t expose or seriously oppose the other party because that wouldn’t be nice.”
Both are equally blameworthy. It’s time Americans woke up and understood they have been sold down the river.
