The presidential race has been turned upside down by a video “discovered” by the “journalists” at The Daily Caller, in which then-Senator Obama addresses a crowd in 2007 to speak about poverty in minority communities.
Mitt Romney, you have your game-change moment. After you disregarded nearly half the country as parasites on the rumps of the wealthy in a secretly recorded video, the right-wing press managed to “unearth” this public speech by Obama made in front of thousands of students at Hampton University that totally reveals the president trying to incite a race war. Just read what he said about Hurricane Katrina:
“People in Washington, they wake up, they’re surprised: ‘There’s poverty in our midst! Folks are frustrated! Black people angry!’ Then there’s gonna be some panels, and hearings, and there are commissions and there are reports, and then there’s some aid money, although we don’t always know where it’s going—it can’t seem to get to the people who need it—and nothin’ really changes, except the news coverage quiets down and Anderson Cooper is on to something else.”
No wonder the Drudge Report led with the observation: “Obama describes a racist, zero-sum society.”
This certainly couldn’t be a pitiful, half-assed attempt to stoke some of the coals under the white resentment vote that Republican candidates have pinned their entire electoral hopes on as I described in this post on the demographic reality of the race. Just listen to this Black Nationalist talk about the homeless, Iraq veterans suffering from PTSD and foster children:
“[W]e can’t expect them to have all the skills they need for work. They may need help with basic skills—how to show up for work on time, wear the right clothes and act appropriately in an office.”
Can you believe we elected this radical the first time? How in good conscience can we re-elect someone who once purported to care about the struggling fringes of society when there is literally the juiciest $5 trillion tax cut for job creators just sitting out there in the Romney-Ryan platform?
Also, can you believe there are people out there who actually love this version of Obama? This Black Panther maniac who spoke bluntly about the insidious links that tether race and poverty, who called out the link between public policy and the systems that perpetuate inequality and despair? Can you believe there are crazy people who actually quite like this speech and think that in it Obama says some things they wish he’d talk about more?
No, for sure Sean Hannity got it right when he called the president on his “phony” accent—by which he means Obama was talking like a black! Hannity went on to helpfully explain that the left-wing press has spent the last five years attempting to hide the video in order to “protect” Barack Obama. I know I got my memo in 2008 after he won. It read, in part, “This explosive video of Obama speaking of the plight of the country’s most embattled citizens, who’ve been left behind by a failing education system, de-industrialization, and endemic urban poverty, cannot under any circumstances be made public because it may reveal his larger conspiracy to tax the White Man and institute a system of reparations for young Crips and Bloods to buy better rims for their vehicles. Please help us keep this under wraps.”
And I tried to get the word out, but Code Pink and the abortionists tapped my phone and wouldn’t let me get the video onto the internet. Finally, however, five years later, just in time for election 2012 with the president breaking through in the polls, the brave reporters at the Daily Caller—a website largely financed by patriot-American billionaire Foster Friess—managed to dig it up and get the explosive material into the media just in time to deny Obama a second term and prevent him from helping any of those urban poor, homeless, Iraq veterans or foster children he said he wanted to help—that Afro-Marxist bastard.
If you aren’t convinced just listen to this black man’s crazy talk:
“These quiet riots that take place every day are born from the same place as the fires and destruction and the police decked out in riot gear … They happen when a sense of disconnect settles in and hope dissipates. Despair takes hold in young people all across the country [who] look at the way the world is and believe that things are never gonna get better.”
Sure, you crazy black redistributionist Kenyan-born Muslim: keep pretending like there are deep, complex and intractable problems within America’s impoverished communities that will require time, effort and serious reallocations of resources to begin to make a difference—when everyone knows if we just took away these leeches’ food stamps, they’d educate themselves, start a business, and all be the next Steve Jobses.
I think I just wrote the next Romney-Ryan 2012 slogan.
