Obama and the Lord of the Flies!
World Net Daily (WND) posted the AP photo on the right with the caption, Lord of the Flies? For those who recall the book of the same name, it tells about a group of English schoolboys marooned on an island after a shipwreck. As the boys attempt to establish a kind of government things break down and the students form into two groups battling each other. Their behavior becomes more and more confrontational and violent and, if memory serves, at least one boy is killed.
It's a sad story, as well as a cynical one positing that the natural state of mankind is war. The boy leader of one of the groups is admirable, but unable to prevent the collapse into savagery. The Lord of the Flies, Satan himself, seems to rule on the island arousing jealousy, animosity, and hatred amongst the boys. When they are finally rescued by the British navy, the adults are shocked and disgusted at what they find. There's irony there too, however, since England has been at war for most of her history.
But back to the photo...I think WND hit the mark with their title. Obama's entire strategy since ascending to the presidency has been to foster division, conflict, and class hatred. It's a strategy consistent with Alinsky community organizing. Fostering conflict is what allows those who want power to acquire it.
That the fly landed on Obama's lip is an apt metaphor. Satan is often called "the father of lies." And Obama's lies are legion. He is attacking the country from within. He uses every crisis and even manufactures them in order to consolidate the power of the central government.
The Lord of the flies?...The father of lies?...Take your pick. Obama is equally deserving of either. Jesus said you can know a man by his fruits. Obama's are the advancement of abortion and the homosexual agenda. That's two of the four sins that cry to heaven for vengeance: murder of the innocent and sodomy. It's a good job if you look at it from the Lord of the flies' perspective.
