The United States of America, as we have known it, is no more. What is emerging is a very different America, a radically altered country from what it was before. It is not a free country. It hasn't truly been a free country in a long time. It is a Socialist country where the freedoms Americans once enjoyed have been steadily eroded; and a whole lot more will now be taken away. And it's not a great country. It used to be; there was a time when it was the greatest country in the world. That time has passed. It is a shell of what it once was.
In 1994 South Africa became the darling of the world when Nelson Mandela, a Communist, came to power. In 2008 the United States became the darling of the world when Barack Obama, a Communist, came to power. As an American friend wrote to me two days after the election, "Guess we now have a better understanding of how you felt when the ANC and Mandela took over South Africa." We well remember how we felt the morning after those fateful elections 14 years ago. We woke up in another country, although we hadn't gone anywhere. Things would never be the same again.
Most Americans didn't care when Marxist liberation theology ravaged Africa, delivering one African country after another into the hands of Communist terrorists; in fact they actively supported the Communist revolutionaries with vast amounts of money and moral support. They literally did all they could to foist Marxists onto other countries of the world. And now they have one! – a Marxist is president of their own country! Just like 9/11, this is, truly, divine retribution. Americans gave the terrorist Nelson Mandela a ticker-tape parade through the streets of New York, the man who turned once free and prosperous South Africa into a Marxist state, ruled by Communist terrorists responsible for the deaths of thousands and thousands of black and white South Africans; and then New York suffered the worst terrorist atrocity in world history. God is not mocked.
There are only two good things in what is otherwise an unmitigated disaster. One is that American blacks will never again be able to whine, with any justification, about being "oppressed" or "marginalised" or living in "racist America". They haven't had any just cause for doing so in decades, anyway; but now? Now, even though many will doubtless continue to do so, this has been exploded for the lie it is. Even South Africa's "Red Bishop", Desmond Tutu, admitted it when he blubbered, "It is just tremendous; it is saying to people of colour that for them, the sky is the limit."xxxix Well, if the sky's the limit in supposedly "racist", "bigoted" America, where so many blacks have blamed all their problems on whites and "racism"; if a black man can rise to become president, largely through the white vote (for whites are still in the majority); then America cannot, with any real justification, be branded a racist society, and American blacks can no longer claim that they are second-class citizens and "victims". White racism, then, is nowhere near as all-pervasive as it's been made out to be. Black racism, however, is alive and well and very, very militant. Very probably many black Americans haven't realised the implications of having a black president, for their perennial attempts to portray themselves as "victims" in a "racist" society; but when the euphoria wears off they'll wake up to it. Ironically then, this moment of victory for black liberals could in the long run prove to be more harmful to their "victim" culture than anything else.
The other good thing is that, four years from now, or eight, Americans will realise just how disastrous an Obama presidency was for the United States. Obama has been ushered in on a massive tidal wave of emotional but misguided support. Yet the plain fact of the matter is that he will not make America a better place. And by the time he leaves office, many of his fanatical devotees will have had their blinkers ripped off. It will be too late by then of course, the damage will have been done. But at least there's some small comfort in knowing that the present euphoria will in time give way to disillusionment. It always does, when men trust in the arm of flesh. Perhaps, then, there still is a glimmer of hope for the United States, a few years down the line. Time will tell. It is in the Lord's hands.
In the meantime, Comrade Obama has become the president of what is now, in reality, the USSA: the United Socialist States of America. America has ceased to be great. It is rushing headlong into the New World Order, just like every other western nation. It no longer stands out. Sin has destroyed it, and judgment from heaven has fallen on the land. Its time of greatness has passed.
