The “emperor” wears no clothes, and more people are noticing?


[Drawing from TheRealRevo.Com]

In 1837 as a part of Fairy Tales Told for Children, a short story entitled “The Emperor’s New Clothes” was published…  Of course most are familiar with the tale so only briefly paraphrasing it, it was about a ruler of long ago who was so consumed by his feelings of self-worth (because his minion ministers and gushing public around him played to his perception),  that at a certain point he was led to believe, or he convinced himself, that he was wearing the most beautiful clothes made of the finest weave — and that only the most astute and intelligent could see the clothes he was wearing for the ignorant and unworthy ones would be blind to them…  You get the point, especially if you are familiar with the old tale young and old alike have read… 

When the emperor in one of his final most deceptive acts marched before his subjects wearing not a stitch, while believing he was wearing the finest threads, most observers initially commented that the garments were oh, so luxurious,… and the ruler basked in the light of his own self-importance… 

But a child, after straining his neck to get a better look at the acclaimed national leader wearing his finest wardrobe, and rubbing his eyes clear to make sure he indeed was seeing what the others around were purporting to marvel at, finally blurted innocently that “the emperor ain’t got no clothes”, or something to that effect… And the emperor then and there realized the folly of his charade, but he continued his parade, with vigor…

When will President Obama’s moment of realization arrive, or has it already arrived though nonetheless he marches the country here and yonder, based on his ideology…

As written on this page on March 16, 2010, …”The president seems to see things as whatever he wishes they might be and then tries to convince people his perceptions of the present are actual reality, when  factually they often are simply his wishful thinking… “…  And many in the news media heretofore have enabled him to proceed in his quixotic journey…  But even from the left, more and more are saying they will march to the beat of the emperor’s drum no longer…

The “emperor” in tatters, or worse?

  1. Thank you. I enjoyed reading this because I remember the story and because you fit it to the topic so well. Thank you.

  2. What a great analogy.

    Of course, self-evaluation is not a strongpoint of this President and so many of the media, the entitlement-minded constituency that supports him and those who benefit from administering his reign are all too willing to play the role of sycophant and continue the charade.
