The Tactics Of Fear

So, Joe Biden goes out onto the campaign trail and opens his face hole in a way that's guaranteed to make folks pay attention. Unfortunately, I think he's garnered the wrong type of attention.

"Mark my words," the Democratic vice presidential nominee warned at the second of his two Seattle fundraisers Sunday. "It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We're about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you don't remember anything else I said. Watch, we're gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy."

"I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate," Biden said to Emerald City supporters, mentioning the Middle East and Russia as possibilities. "And he's gonna need help. And the kind of help he's gonna need is, he's gonna need you - not financially to help him - we're gonna need you to use your influence, your influence within the community, to stand with him. Because it's not gonna be apparent initially, it's not gonna be apparent that we're right."
This sounds suspiciously like something that people have accused the current regime in power of doing. Engineering a crisis to consolidate power and the plebes. This type of speech is not likely to engender any type of confidence in anyone with even a moderate IQ. What type of crisis would need grass roots, local support? Does Comrade Obama intend to enact his final solution where guns are concerned? Perhaps, he'll take the decision to finally go after gunowners and will need his Brownshirts to aid them? Turning in your gun owning neighbours would certainly require local level help and no financial help. Maybe he'll choose to go into Iran or Pakistan and will need to fill the ranks of the military. The only way to do that is to embrace the Democrat ideal of the draft. They're the only ones who've been talking about it and it certainly fits into their "national service" schemes.

What crisis would an Obama regime engineer? There are so many to choose from that the mind boggles. Unfortunately, the Obama fanatics are likely to follow whereever their glorious leader chooses to take them. Fear and lemmings go together well and, unfortunately all too many people will get caught up in the stampede. What set of rights shall we have to sacrifice on the altar of this mans cult of personality in order to fulfill Mr. Biden's prophecy? How many people will his prophetic maunderings get killed this time around and what, exactly do they have planned for us, (beyond a full scale and rapid decent into socialism)? And where will the Obama inspired press be where this story is concerned? Prepping the memory hole, no doubt.

So what is this? A threat. A "prophecy". One which they will likely attempt to make self-fulfilling.
