I just caught this interview with Gore Vidal linked out of the Drudge Report. For a man who is supposed to be a intellectual genius, he is one sour, misguided and pathetic individual.
Obama believes the Republican Party is a party when in fact it’s a mindset, like Hitler Youth, based on hatred — religious hatred, racial hatred. When you foreigners hear the word ‘conservative’ you think of kindly old men hunting foxes. They’re not, they’re fascists.”
Whoa! How such a supposedly enlightened individual spew so vile hate? For somebody who has lived so much, it amazes me how petty his soul can be. But it gets better. This is his opinion of us, the American people.
Obama would have been better off focusing on educating the American people. His problem is being over-educated. He doesn’t realise how dim-witted and ignorant his audience is.
Got it yet? We are dumb, not worthy of living and enjoying the gifts that him and his cohorts give away but that we foolishly reject. We are a dumb country because ‘America has “no intellectual class” and is “rotting away at a funereal pace. We’ll have a military dictatorship fairly soon, on the basis that nobody else can hold everything together’. ‘Now, if I remember my history correctly great countries as defined by having fantastic intellectual classes have had a big share of dictators since 1776. Germany, China, Russia, France to mention some of the great cultural centers of the world were racked by all types of dictators bringing upon this planet grief and death by the hundred of millions while the United States has never had one. The causes they supported or let grow while safely tucked away in their Ivory Towers, filled trenches with corpses, created tons of ashes out of human remains and engaged in waves of ethnic cleansing. Yet he seems to forget that for his own little bit of egotistical self indulgence. We Americans are dumb because we did not build him a pedestal and bowed to the infinite wisdom of him and his fellow intellectuals, wisdom that massacred people over and over. And thank the Lord we are dumb because us Dumb Americans had to go out there and save the rest of the world from their little intellectual experiments. Ooops! I mentioned God, I must be full of religious hatred.
He is afraid of Obama being assassinated. Not a difficult thing for his mind to elaborate since he has this perfect mental image of us as crazy, bloodthirsty animals
Has he met Obama? “No,” he says quietly, “I’ve had my time with presidents.” Vidal raises his fingers to signify a gun and mutters: “Bang bang.” He is referring to the possibility of Obama being assassinated. “Just a mysterious lone gunman lurking in the shadows of the capital,” he says in a wry, dreamy way.
And yet, look who is holding tight so he does not lose it.
“My usual answer to ‘What am I proudest of?’ is my novels, but really I am most proud that, despite enormous temptation, I have never killed anybody and you don’t know how tempted I have been.”
You know? It is truly sad to see somebody at the end of his life having a soul so shriveled by hate. I feel pity for the poor guy. He is a truly sorrowful creature. May God give you soul some peace after you leave us Mr. Vidal… Oh darn.. I mentioned God. I must be full of religious hatred. Oh well!
