Who Let Alan Keyes Out Of The Crazy House?

-A +A

[Black Star News Editorial]

Where do the Republicans get these kinds of characters?

Rush Limbaugh; Sean Hannity; Bobby Jindal; and, not to be outdone, Alan Keyes.

It’s a painful thing to grow up thinking that you’re brilliant, a genius, because your mother said you were, only to discover later in life that you’re not so bright after all.

It’s even more painful when you encounter someone who is light years smarter than you are, and it drives you off the cliff. Such is the unfortunate experience of a familiar perennial candidate, the so-called "ambassador" Alan Keyes.

In a recent interview, which is now available on YouTube, Keyes revealed the pain that’s been eating up at his insides. It’s a wonder that he was able to emit so much hatred without foaming at the mouth.

"Obama is a radical communist. And I think it's becoming clear," Keyes, who also maintains that Obama is not a citizen and is therefore not president of the United States declared.

"That's what I told people in Illinois and now everybody realizes it's true. He's going to destroy this country, and we're either going to stop him or the United States of America is going to cease to exist."

This sounds to us like a clear threat; how does one "stop" someone after he has already been elected and sworn in as president. The Secret Service needs to pay Keyes a visit so he can clarify what he meant.

His reference to Illinois however is clear; it was to the 2004 U.S. Senate contest in which Keyes ran against Barack Obama; a more accurate description would be the race in which Obama ran over Keyes with a MACK truck.

Obama is an "alleged" president, Keyes contends.

"That's another question," he added, for emphasis. "Is he president of the United States? According to the Constitution, in order to be eligible for president you have to be a natural-born citizen. He has refused to provide proof that he is, in fact, a natural-born citizen," Keyes added, claiming that Obama’s relatives say he was born in Nairobi, Kenya, "So I'm not even sure he's president of the United States...."

"The person you call 'President Obama' -- and I frankly refuse to call him that -- at the moment, he is some kind of an alleged usurper, who is alleged to be someone who is occupying that office without constitutional warrant to do so," Keyes, who sometimes goes by the title "professor," asserted.

This nonsense has even been abandoned by the most lunatic fringes of the conspiracy theorists movement; yet the "professor", a man who was once a respected individual, before he fell off the cliff, is still peddling it.

Keyes, an utter failure in every election that he has ever contested, most certainly resents the fact that this alleged "Kenyan" is so much smarter than he is, and that millions of Americans have confidence in this alleged "Kenyan" while millions of Americans turned away from him.

In fact, perhaps Keyes should have spread the rumor that he too was Kenyan by birth during his own failed run for the White House; we might have ended up with a President Alan Keyes in the White House and maybe Obama would now be the one spewing crazy hatred like Keyes, instead of the other way around.

"He is also somebody who has just announced a program that would essentially destroy the validity of existing mortgages, and encourage everybody in the country to stop paying their mortgage because the government is going to pay it instead," Keyes said, of our "crazy" president's plan to keep a roof over the heads of millions of Americans. Apparently, Keyes has been in a walking coma and may be the only person in the United States who isn’t aware that millions have lost their homes, and that millions more may still lose their homes unless the government spends enough money to create jobs in time.

And if you think we already have too many Mexicans in the United States? Well you have something coming at you, if Obama has his way, since "he's rushing forward with ideas like destroying our borders, an amnesty bill that will actually have the American taxpayer footing the bill for illegals to come to this country to live, to get housing, and to get everything they want."

"This is insanity," Keyes boomed angrily, and it’s not at all clear whether he is referring to Obama, or to himself. "It's as if we have put insane children and adolescents in charge of our government...."

"Have people gone mad in this country?" Keyes, without even acknowledging the irony, actually asked. "You don't have that money. We are claiming that a bankrupt government can save a bankrupt banking system. Explain to me how that happens because I think that's impossible. And the fact that we have just elected an individual, who may or may not be qualified, and he presents silly ideas like this and says, 'Let's move forward now,' and we're all acting like the laws of economics have been repealed, and we can actually afford to foot the bill with money nobody's got. This is insane. It's got to lead to the collapse of our economy, and it's going to."

It’s clear that Keyes was referring to George Bush and the last eight years of inept Republican Congressional control; he just waited too long –eight years—to make this remark.

Evil President Obama –excuse us Evil "alleged president" Obama— also is apparently a killer of children, according to Keyes. "The man is an abomination," the good ambassador, who wants to protect all of America’s children, declared angrily. "He is someone who has actually advocated infanticide; that when babies are the target of abortion, if they happen to escape the abortionist's intention and are born alive, he actually supported the idea that those babies should be set aside to die. That is a man with such a seared conscience I can't even understand why anybody in their right mind would consider him worthy of political support. That's a violation of conscience that is inconceivable. And even some of the most hard line pro-abortion people in America rejected that abomination. And he did not."

Yet the worst is yet to come, and there will be blood in the streets, under President Obama, unless he’s "stopped" Keyes warns: "We're in the midst of the greatest crisis this nation has ever seen. And if we don't stop laughing about it and deal with it, we're going to find ourselves in the midst of chaos, confusion, and civil war. It's time we started acting like grown-ups...."

Pity all those millions of Americans who voted for Obama during the primaries and then in the general election; if only they had listened to Keyes.

Wait; they did listen to Keyes, and they rejected him on every occasion that he ran for major office. He has run for President in 1996, 2000, and 2008. He was a Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate in 1988, 1992, and 2004.

Keyes can’t really believe that he’s the one who’s sane and Obama is the nut.

Then again, maybe he is that crazy.
