Envy Is The Great Leveler

It has been interesting to read blog posts which attempt to decipher the reasons why a certain percentage of voters "went Obama."  One writer at American Thinker has a theory:

Who Goes Obama?
American Thinker - 8 hours ago

Divisive conversation on "Fairness" and motivational phrases such as "We can't wait," "Vote for revenge," "You didn't build that," and "Punish your enemies" were addressed to those whom the campaign already knew would answer "I do" to the question, "Who goes Obama?"
A lot of what she writes makes sense and exposes why the liberal leftist socialist/communist indoctrination that has infiltrated our schools over the past 30-40 years has resulted in voters who think BHO is an acceptable choice for POTUS.
However, an interesting comment appeared under a recent Talk Wisdom post entitled, BHO Trying To Destroy America:

We really can't understand this thing called egalitarianism or equality as the American Thinker author incorrectly labeled it unless we dig into the meaning and intent of envy.

Envy is the great leveler. As the envious person is miserable and unhappy envy desires that all of us must be equally miserable and unhappy. Or poor, sexually perverted, sadistic, beastly, etc.

Schadenfreude, the most secret as well as diabolical aspect of envy, is enjoyment at the suffering of the object of envy. Jerry Springer for instance, invites us to take pleasure in the self-inflicted degradations of his guests.

Part of Tolkien's genius was in portraying evil in a way that we could really see. Thus Sauron is the burning, sleepless eye of envy (Scripture is full of references to the eye of envy) unceasingly sweeping over his "egalitarian" communist hell-on-middle earth where everything is equally twisted, bent, deformed, sadistic,foul, and dead.

We simply cannot understand Karl Marx, Stalin, Alinsky, Obama et al apart from envy and Schadenfreude.

Causing envy between people by stirring up hatred between black and white, male and female, rich and poor, liberal and conservative are methods utilized to separate, divide, and conquer people. Those who fell for Obama's shell-game (again!!) will one day realize that there isn't anything for them under any of the shells he is circling around around the table!

No wonder that envy is one of the seven deadly sins!

Obama has been exposed over the past four years as a person who regularly utilizes all seven deadly sins in his evil habit of wreaking havoc upon Americans and America:

Pride is excessive belief in one's own abilities, that interferes with the individual's recognition of the grace of God. It has been called the sin from which all others arise. Pride is also known as Vanity.

Envy is the desire for others' traits, status, abilities, or situation.

Gluttony is an inordinate desire to consume more than that which one requires.

Lust is an inordinate craving for the pleasures of the body.

Anger is manifested in the individual who spurns love and opts instead for fury. It is also known as Wrath.

Greed is the desire for material wealth or gain, ignoring the realm of the spiritual. It is also called Avarice or Covetousness.

Sloth is the avoidance of physical or spiritual work

I cannot recall a single instance where Obama has shown kindness towards those in whom he opposes. He has shown only hatred against them and generally attacks them on a regular basis.

rather than face me? response to my post on your previous thread.
I was polite, non-blasphemous, I included Biblical quotes in my post, just as you did...and got ignored.

Have you lost interest in the topic? Are you disturbed that the only response you got was from someone who disputes your arguments?
...Or have you simply decided to grow feathers again, and shut me out by pretending I didn't post?

Don't worry: I can talk about this latest bunch of crazy from you, too.

Thank you for your response. I hope we can continue the previous topic, even if it doesn't remain on a public forum. But for now:

CJW: ”I cannot recall a single instance where Obama has shown kindness towards those in whom he opposes. He has shown only hatred against them and generally attacks them on a regular basis.”

Let's see, now...

'NObama'...'gangsta government'...'Obamanation'...'monster puppet'...'a Pathological, Sociopathic, Traitorous, and Evil Liar'...'evilcrat'...
”I do not doubt that he and his sniveling, conniving desperately evil surrogates would even kill (oops...they already have done that!) to sway the election in their favor.”

"I fear that (justifiably angry crazies start to use the second) is about to happen. The US congress and the US Supreme Court are turning their back on the oath they took to the US Constitution. We The People may have no other recourse but to take military action. If this constitutional republic is to remain free US Constitutional law must be enforced. If not through the courts then military action.”

“ZOG just pissed off a lot of White folks with… guns." (“ZOG” stands for "Zionist Occupation Government", and is a favorite topic among anti-semites and white nationalists.)

“Another 4 years of this (N-word),” Denise Helms wrote. “Maybe he will get assassinated this term.”
The post, which has since been taken down, went up right after the president won his second term Tuesday night.
“I didn’t think it would be that big of a deal,” Helms told FOX40.
Even though Helms removed the post from her profile, she’s not going to apologize.
“The assassination part is kind of harsh,” Helms said. “I’m not saying I’d go do that or anything like that, by any means, but if it was to happen I don’t think I’d care one bit.”

I got those quotes from various sites on the Web that I frequent. The first set of quotes, in fact, came from this blog, this past summer. AFAIK, Obama has never interrupted a Republican speaker with “You lie!” He has never doubted the citizenship or legitimacy of someone else (not even Hilary, who decided not to use that tactic against him in '08). He's made no references to 'ofay's, 'whitebread's, or 'crackers' even in private, and certainly not in national media—-if he had, it could never have been kept secret, simply because he IS the POTUS. On the other hand, those who don't like him show no restraint whatever, calling for everything from investigation to sedition and assassination.

Okay, tell me again--who's attacking whom?
