Perception Is Key

After reading Alan Keyes blog post where he asks readers to decide the motives behind Ann Coulter utilizing his name in the title of one of her most recent articles, I shared my opinion in some comments at the Keyes blog.

There are 27 comments at Alan's blog; many of them are good. There are over 6,400 comments written under Ann's article!

It would be best to read Ann's article and Alan's blog post. Then return here to read these comments.

Here is a copy of part of the conversation going on in the comment section at Alan Keyes blog:

I haven't read the article yet. However, my first reaction to that title was that all the controversy over Obama's horrid death-to-unborn-babies mindset is being ignored by the Notre Dame "elites." What's more, is that those who watched these events unfold can see the stark contrast between the pro-life students who stood up for the innocent babies who are being murdered in the womb vs. the indoctrinated, brain-dead and mentally-dirtied students (on this particular subject) who believe "it's not a child - it's a choice." Such a contrast just might push even more Americans towards the current pro-life majority belief category (thus, the "Alan Keyes fundraiser" meaning) into the forefront of the political atmosphere in decisions about supporting (with both their votes and donations) candidates running for office who also hold to the Constitutional Right to Life for unborn babies.

Now I will go and read the article to see if my analysis is correct.

Now that I have read the article and the comments here in this thread, I agree with what "seekyetruth" and some others wrote. She is on your side, was highlighting and disparaging the despicable pro-abortion murder views of liberals, indicated that abortion is a lawless and tragic form of murder for convenience, and such contrast tells Notre Dame that the backlash will help the pro-life side. Ann paid you a wonderful compliment by indicating that you are in the forefront and a leader in the pro-life cause.

Then, two commenters had this to say:

I have said before that I am uneasy with the idea that Ann Coulter is somehow a leader among conservatives.

She is a humorist. She is a very talented humorist, with a lot of wit. She is a boon to the community she serves because everyone needs to laugh. But she is a humorist, not a leader.

Coulter is on the right side of the issues, but that doesn't change the fact that she's a comedian who makes her trade in laughs, not thought. Looking to her for political leadership is like learning astrophysics from George Lucas. Or perhaps climatology from Al Gore.

I have always felt that Ann Coulter was dangerous. But I have come to understand that the danger is not in who she is or what she does, but in the portrayal of her (and other entertainers) as the "voice" of freedom loving Americans. I love having the freedom to enjoy her wit, but I shudder at the thought that she should be considered as speaking on my behalf.

In this instance, I think she was just being funny (maybe without effort, I really don't know how the natively funny are funny all the time if they really have to try at it, but then I wouldn't know). Sadly, for her and everyone else, the country has been fed on the notion she ought to be taken seriously.

For the record, I was a little peeved that she left her only reference to Dr. Keyes as a sort of ambiguous inside joke. That's not a very brave thing for anyone to do, even a comedian. And I would prefer Coulter to stick with being a humorist. But at the end of the day there are considerations much more important than whether an entertainer is a humorist or a comedian.

LOL!!!!

It appears that chiu_chunling is too modest a humorist as well.

I also believe Coulter's "ambiguous inside joke" was the antithesis of bravery. In fact, she's not much different from Bill Maher when you come right down to it.

chiu chunling and groovsmyth,

Who has ever claimed that Ann Coulter is "somehow" a "leader among conservatives?" I don't agree with everything that she states or writes, but a LOT of what she shares, in humor or not, tells the truth about what is going on in the political spectrum. She has a LOT more guts than many Conservative Republicans, Conservative Democrats, and/or Libertarians who often try to stay in the "neutral zone" so as not to offend anyone.

People - it is time to start (or continue) offending!! We can do so without cursing or using the awful tactics of the far left loons. Just sharing the truth about each matter is "offensive" enough to get the left riled up. They EXPECT us to keep silent on such issues - (like telling the truth about this Hispanic Supreme Court judge nominee and her anti-white male racist comments) so as not to "offend" the Hispanic community and thus, lose their votes.

Even though most Hispanics in California voted for ObamaFRAUD (ugh!), they also voted FOR THE PASSAGE OF PROP. 8. On social issues, they vote Conservative. If the Republicans were smart, they would make this known to the general public. Plus, there are a LOT OF PEOPLE who voted for Obama who now regret it!!

I disagree with you, groovsmyth - Ann Coulter's bravery shows every time she appears on T.V. She's not afraid to speak her mind and share her opinion - even though the liberal left loons continue to disparage her. We need more people like her (and Alan Keyes, for that matter!) who are willing to take the negative response drivel of the far left loons; yet continue to speak up for the majority of Americans whose views are either ignored, disparaged, or mocked by the Lamestream Media of Mass Deception.

I applaud her.

I applaud Alan Keyes.

And, if you will re-read my comment, I think that including Alan Keyes' name in the title of her article was a compliment to him.

You know what they say about perceptions. You can read the following in two completely opposite ways:

GODISNOWHERE

You can choose to think it means "God is no where." Or, you can choose to think it means "God is now here."

That's my take on it.

Hat Tips:

Alan Keyes is Loyal to Liberty

Human Events: Ann Coulter article

*******
Update:

Alan Keyes has another blog post that deals with what I mentioned about the Hispanic woman Obama has chosen as Supreme Court nominee: Sotomayer and the Tyranny of Race

Excerpt:


In every important respect Obama's victory in the 2008 presidential election was a victory for racism. First there was the racist claim that his skin color made his election somehow significant for black Americans with whom he otherwise shares no common moral or historical heritage. Second, his stubborn advocacy of the parent's right to murder her child made it a victory in principle for the racist notion that "inferior" physical development leaves people with no rights that must be respected by their supposed betters. Third, the US Constitution has been openly set aside on account of fears that racist violence would result from investigating the facts regarding his citizenship at birth (lest they support the conclusion that he is constitutionally ineligible to serve as President of the United States.) Truth, right and the Constitution all sacrificed for the sake of racist fears and premises.


Continue reading here.

That last sentence in the excerpt sums up exactly why Obama's birth certificate controversy won't get a hearing:

Truth, right and the Constitution all sacrificed for the sake of racist fears and premises.

What a sad day in America!

*******
Second Update:

On the subject of the meaning of "Natural Born Citizen" of the United States of America, see Mario Apuzzo's latest blog post:

Natural Born Citizen Through the Eyes of Early Congresses

Now THIS IS A GREAT POST! It truly explains how people were emotionally duped into voting for Obama. They fell for the "triggers" placed upon them! Blue pill people to the core!

On second thought - "The Obama Factor" post is just TOO GOOD not to post in its entirety!

The Obama Factor
I have made a mistake, no not in being wrong, but in the mistake of viewing people who listen to, vote for or term Barack Obama "intelligent" were judging from the same facts I was.

This manifested in listening to a propagandist professor at Columbia University named Schama who appeared on Charlie Rose. Honestly, Mr. Schama who is a Brit behaves like someone who should be locked up on a mental institution as he reminded me of Dom DeLuise in the movie The End, but by God's inspiration I finally understood what is behind the Obama voters in how they see a disaster in Obama daily as victory unto victory.

It has everything to do with the key phrases of Bill Clinton and Barack Obama which appeal to liberals who are suffering from a psychopathy of being an American.

I will explain in this example. When a Christian such as myself hears George W. Bush speak, they hear code words which only someone who has a God experience can relate to. It is allot like talking about being in combat, unless one is in combat, one can not converse about it.
While God is literally emotion, the Christian like all Conservatives process that emotion in logical format in discerning, evalutating and judging.

Now when a liberal hears, "I feel your pain", from Bill Clinton, they are not processing by intellect, but by emotion. It was brilliant of Clinton to scam a majority of people in this way in knowing that a vast majority of Americans were in pain, in sorrow in distress over burdens they were carrying and Bill Clinton validated that pain, so just like a puppy who has been beaten if someone comes along and cuddles it, that animal will cling to that validation no matter what.
A sort of emotional Pavlov's dog is what Bill Clinton generated to get himself elected twice.

By contrast, a Conservative hearing "I feel your pain", hears by logical deduction, an invasion of their privacy and a weakness on the part of the speaker in appealing to the failures. A Conservative would laugh in response to Clinton as his comfort was unnecessary, but a liberal basks in Clinton with gratitude of making it all feel better, by affirming the owie that hurts.
Yes, a four year old response came from liberals.

Now add to this the thing which Birdie Obama was deep down emotionally telling a majority of Americans who are guilt ridden for having great lives while others suffer around the world. Obama was triggering in those self haters that it was ok to be feeling guilty, that he would tear down America that was so successful in making them feel bad for all their wealth, and to the final degradation of America in the way these people feel inside, Obama would tell the world he was sorry for America and apologize everywhere he went.
This is why he was smiling when Ortega and Chavez were saying horrid things about America. That was the America Obama hates as much as they do and that is the America Obama is going to reform to get rid of the guilt he feels too in it's existence.

Bill Clinton triggered it was ok to feel bad and cry. Barack Obama triggered it was ok to hate America for the guilt you feel and to apologize for it.

These are Freudian triggers on a national scale and the Tavistock manipulators had to have been involved as no one could have just stumbled into this manifestation. The entire Obama sect was deliberately run through a maze like a rat on psychiatric triggering to make it drive itself to sheer exhaustion as has been reported, bankrupt itself and make certain it voted Obama no matter what.

Now for the kicker in this which is the amazing part. If one recalls every time one of these liberals gets into office, the entire entourage is always triumphed as the most intelligent people to ever walk the planet.
Schama and Rose were both straight faced in saying this again about Obama and Axelrod. Schama even posed Obama as William Jennings Bryant, one of the most historically gifted speakers in America.

For people who were not swayed by Obama's monkey in his pants nor for his spell of guilt by Obamanation, those comparisons would be most puzzling to them as all they heard was a rather incoherent Obama, stuttering at times, saying things which were quite boring and nothing that marked prose nor intelligence.
That though is the key in this as Obama, once he triggered the either sexual desires in people, the revenge desires in latinos and blacks against white America or allowed people like Harry Smith to con themselves into believing they weren't racists..............these people had the emotional salivation like Pavlov's dog to a bell. They had been fed. The next step is always with these intellectuals like Rose or Schama is to repair backwards from their emotional triggers which have just been satisfied to MAKE THE TRIGGER THE MOST INTELLIGENT THING TO EVER WALK THE PLANET as this group couches all it is in intelligence.

They will tell you they are more intelligent than Conservatives, when the statistics prove otherwise. They being defeated in the physical world, retreat to a mental veiled world where they deem themselves superior and all inferior, except those who SPEAK TO THEIR EMOTIONS and those people then elevated to "intelligent" as they trigger things in them.

This is what has been missed completely by everyone in this, because liberals are defining intelligence in Obama by how he validates their shame in being Americans.

It does not matter that Obama has bankrupted America, that Axelrod runs the reporters around like Stalin on a leash, that Obama throws flowers at memorials, that Obama has caused the nuclear situation in North Korea, that there are massive foreign policy disasters culiminating due to Obama being inept nor that Obama makes sport of Special Olympics children. None of that matters, because these Obamaniacs are not hearing reality. Their emotions have made them blind. Obama has justified their guilt and that is all that matters to them, because if they deny Obama and note him as being a failure, then they have to take back that guilt and hatred for American success which they think they just were exorcised from.

I knew these people were suffering from a mania. I just never in logical deduction processed they would change the meaning of words like intelligence, when they were in psychopathy speaking about dark emotions being exorcised.

This is how a nation of rather disturbed people was manipulated in their mental problems to vote for a very mundane 10 year old boy named Obama in literally hallucinating him to be intelligent while constantly pounding George Bush who was very intelligent as stupid and Dick Cheney personified as "evil" in their minds due to his success.
That is what is behind Obama's psychotic attacks on the Bush presidency which has led him to absolutely dangerous policies in letting terrorists go, making American cities terrorist targets and the growing problem of communist terror states in North Korea and Iran.

A nation of crazy people literally had their bells rung and they voted for a crazy person they were hallucinating as being their Prince Charming, when the only charm Obama had was a demon monkey in his pants feeding that incubus feel good emotion driving the leg tingler crowd.

Being a sane person in God's Grace, it is difficult at times like these to actually find empathy in the Obama insanity driving so many, as this would never occur to me, thankfully.

But the Holy Spirit does see all and reveals to those who wait upon God.

These people are not hearing intelligence. They are hearing emotional triggers they are succeptable to and then deeming it in emotional process, "intelligence", as that is the god they hide in to protect them from the hurtful world.

Now though as Paul Harvey would say, "You know the rest of the story".

There's one way (at least) that Ann has it over her detractors: Research. I've read several of her books. She is a big fan of research. If she quotes something or someone, there's a footnote. You know where she got it and that it was in fact said. Love her or hate her (or a little bit of both), but there is an intellect there.

Having said that, I don't consider her a leader or spokesperson for anyone but herself. She does make a number of good points, albeit acidly. I don't think she considers herself a leader. I would give her far more credit than simply to say that she was an entertainer, however. She brings to light a lot of things that some people would never hear and others would actively hide from. And with all respect for his service, given a choice between Ann Coulter and John McCain, I know who I would want to take into verbal brawl with me. Considering her stand on firearms, I might expand that to just about any kind of brawl.
