Moral Narcissism in a Week of Anniversaries

June 4-5: Marks the 25th anniversary of The Tiananmen Square Protest in which hundreds, perhaps thousands, of Chinese citizens demonstrating for democracy were cut down by their government.

June 5: Also marks the 10th anniversary of Ronald Reagan’s death; the man who ended the Cold War by winning it.

June 6-7: Marks the 70th anniversary of the D-Day invasion, a horrific battle which landed Allied forces on the beaches of Normandy giving the Allied Forces a foothold in Europe that finally led to our victory in World War II.

So here, for your weekend reflection, a couple of pieces that discuss the value of freedom and democracy in a world of tyranny. First, from Roger Simon, ‘I’m Just a Soul Whose Intentions Are Good’: Obama, Bergdahl and Moral Narcissism:

Moral Narcissism is an evocative term for the almost schizophrenic divide between intentions and results now common in our culture.  It doesn’t matter how anything turns out as long as your intentions are good.  And, just as importantly, the only determinant of those intentions, the only one who defines them, is you.(snip)

Also, although it pretends (especially to the self) to altruism, moral narcissism is in essence passive aggressive, asserting superiority over the ignorant or “selfish” other. It is elitist,  anti-democratic and quite often, consciously or unconsciously, sadistic.

Next, Daniel Henninger: Bergdahl, Obama and the Tank Man. Obama’s foreign policy is a five-...

Last week at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, President Obama gave a speech describing his view of the U.S. role in the world. Any close reading of this speech would fail to identify a "situation," as we say today about places such as Ukraine, that would cause Mr. Obama to say simply: This must be stopped. (snip)

We straw men whom Mr. Obama set up and knocked down repeatedly in his Military Academy apologia would note that in the past five years the space between all or nothing has filled with Russia's border busting, Iran's nuclear-bomb project, Syria's sarin gas, China's disruptions of its neighbors, North Korea's threats against South Korea and Japan, Venezuela's Tiananmen-like crackdown of its democracy protesters, and al Qaeda subdividing into multiple cells from Asia to Africa.

In the post modern world where good intentions serve as surrogates for good outcomes, it is good to reflect back to a time not so very long ago when results mattered and good intentions served exclusively as a road map to Hades.

Oh Lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood

To denigrate the month, as much as humanly possible, obama also named June the National LGBT (and goats?) Pride Month.

Of any month in a year, June annually recognizes the height of America and its Allies Moral Clarity to preserve human rights and dignity.  obama evidently wants to reverse that?

At least he didn't blow a bubble or rearrange non-existent rocks during the D-Day Commemoration, or did he?

Where can I buy a couple of pairs of the ear protectors?? They are priceless.

Comment by Phil McConathy on June 7, 2014 at 7:31pm

I love the ear protectors. Worn by a proud American veteran. I never voted for this narcissist in the White House and and embarrassed for our country. He has single handed destroyed every bit of integrity that has been built over the past 70 years. I honestly believe he hates our country and everything we stand for in the World.

Where can I get those ear protectors??? REALLY!!! Where???!!!!

He should not have been allowed at the D-Day commemoration and stayed home like he did for the first few years of his "reign."  He has no integrity nor honor and does not belong anywhere near where our brave men sacrificed for what he now wants to tear apart.  He's only doing what Slick Willy did in his last two years - trying to pad what he believes is his "legacy."  Anything for a photo op.

Launching a new global counter-terror fund, Secretary of State John Kerry spoke of the importance of “providing more economic opportunities for marginalized youth at risk of recruitment” – to become jihadist terrorists. This is a clear definition of a clinically defined cretin. We all knew that Kerry is a low-IQ bloviating gasbag – but we have been rather mild in our assessment; he should be restrained by a special jacket and placed in an institution for dangerous idiots under the 24-hour armed guard. Researchers have noted that some of the most prominent jihadist terrorists over the past decade or more, far from being driven by desperation and a lack of economic opportunity, are educated members of their societies. Osama bin Laden was the son of a billionaire businessman; Ayman al-Zawahiri is a physician; and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed has an engineering degree. A similar pattern was evident in south-east Asia, where key members of the al-Qaeda-linked Jemaah Islamiah (JI) terror network were well-educated men. Most of he 19 jihadists that executed the well-planned 9/11 terror attack were educated at western universities and sons of oil-rich Arab families. And we are now ready to print more paper dollars to educate those potential terrorists – to become airline pilots? This “counter-terror” fund was launched in September 2011, with the U.S. and Turkey as co-chairs. The Obama administration’s decision not to invite Israel to join drew strong Republican criticism but has not been reversed. Eleven of the forum’s 29 members are Islamic states, most of which do not have diplomatic relations with Israel. They are Algeria, Egypt, Indonesia, Jordan, Morocco, Nigeria, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and the United Arab Emirates. Why should we be surprised? After all, our President Barack Hussein Obama is a Sunni Muslim from Kenya.

Obama is an arrogant, despicable, lying, no good piece of excrement that thinks he is God.

The ear guards do look good.
