Andrew McCarthy Barrack Obama Views
McCarthy wrote several posts on the National Review’s Corner blog during the 2008 presidential election campaign, claiming that Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama was not serious about protecting US national security from threats from Islamic extremism and elsewhere, and that Obama had a number of troubling ties and associations with leftist radicals. McCarthy advocated the conspiracy theory that Obama’s autobiography Dreams from My Father was written by Bill Ayers, co-founder of the revolutionary radical left-wing organization Weather Underground.
“Thorough, thoughtful, and scary,” McCarthy said regarding the article.
“The problem of Obama’s personal radicalism, particularly his association with radical, America-hating Leftists, should have been disqualifying,” McCarthy claimed in October 2008. Obama, he claimed, was practicing “bottom-up socialism.”
McCarthy claimed that the Obama administration was pursuing a “Sharia Agenda” throughout the Obama administration, claiming that radical Islamists were collaborating with liberals in the US government to undermine democracy in the West. McCarthy wrote a book in 2014 asking for Obama’s impeachment, claiming that the president had committed seven types of impeachable offenses. “Failing to pursue impeachment is likely to be suicide for the country,” he warned.
