Barack Obama In His Own Words: Race Baiting Socialism

Click the title of this post to listen to a 1995 interview with Barack Obama in which he talks about "responsibility," "whether you are a white executive out in the suburbs who doesn't want to pay taxes to inner city children for them to go to school..."

That's right, if you don't want to pay more taxes, you're a racist who has something against little black children getting an education.

I think we're getting a pretty good idea now why Senator Obama remained in Jeremiah Wright's congregation for over two decades.

Then, in another clip, Senator Obama gives an entirely new spin to redistribution of wealth: it's for his personal salvation, as well as the salvation of the country -- or more specifically, from the complete context of his comments, African-Americans:

"My individual salvation is not going to come about without a collective salvation for the country. Unfortunately I think that recognition requires that we make sacrifices and this country has not always been willing to make the sacrifices necessary to bring about a new day and a new age."

I can't find that prescription for salvation in my copy of the New Testament...unfortunately it seems that Reverend Wright may have been too busy cursing and stirring up hatred and racial divisions to bother with educating his congregation about the Bible.

I think Obama's vision of "a new day and a new age" is something I'd just as soon skip, and so would many other Americans.

All of this stuff should have come out during the primaries if the media had been doing it's job and researching instead of genuflecting. These revelations are sickening to hear, anyone with sense should realize these are not the remarks of a president. Pray and pray hard for our country.

"Unfortunately I think that recognition requires that we make sacrifices and this country has not always been willing to make the sacrifices necessary..."

What an utterly offensive and untrue statement. Its unconscionable for a man wishing to POTUS telling us that America has not been willing to make necessary sacrifices. Good God, dig the soil of our country and you will at the heart of it, nothing but sacrifice.

Of course the issue is *what* it is that he believes our sacrifices will beget us.

I agree so much with both of you. It's really hitting me that this man really doesn't think much of our country or its citizens. He certainly succeeded -- with the media's assistance -- hiding his true history and feelings for quite a long time. The accumulated info out there about him combines into a very disturbing picture. Every time I think about him referring to babies born during botched abortions as "pre-viable fetuses" it gives me the cold chills.

I feel very down about the possibility of him being elected. Nonetheless, there are encouraging polls out there so I'm tuning out the "it's over" messages prevalent throughout the media and will wait till the 4th to see what happens...

Best wishes,
