The Obama fairy tale exposed, once again

The Obama fairy tale exposed, once again

The video of Obama from 2007 will not itself change the election. At that level, it was over-hyped.

But it is a reminder of the nasty side of Obama, the side well-hidden, the side which does not hesitate to play racial and class politics when convenient and to his advantage.   The side which incessantly pits people against each other and plays on historical grievances and resentments, all the while claiming to do the exact opposite.

Just ask the Clintons, who were smeared as racist.  “I think they played the race card on me” said the man who a month ago gave Obama a much needed boost.

For those of us who prior to the 2008 election understood how Obama used race as a polticial weapon, or who came to understand that unfortunate reality in the ensuing years, the tape will be confirmation of what we always knew.

But for many people who do not follow politics closely or who get their news from the mainstream media, the connection between Jeremiah Wright and Obama will come as a surprise, just as most people probably have no clue as to Obama’s political association with anti-Israeli academics and activists.

So much of the media’s attention since 2008 has been devoted to snuffing out Obama’s political past, to creating a fairy tale based on a self-serving composite history fed to the media by Obama himself.  Even in 2012, Obama’s actual past will come as a surprise to many.

So consider the tape an educational tool to help expose the fairy tale of Obama as a uniter, not a divider.

Obama’s political roots explain so much of why this country is divided and at each other’s throats.

It’s not an accident, it’s the way Obama plays politics in real life.

Still waiting for the Khalidi video.

Of course it must be considered that no matter how damaging this video might be, it will be largely buried by the MSM.

The only course of action that I see as beneficial to the nation is to vote for eviction in November…

    The scandal of the speech here turns out to be the mainstream media that covered it up – just consider if this video had been played at the same time that Obama was “denying” Jeremiah Wright.

“Unlike residents of majority-black New Orleans, the federal government considers those victims “part of the American family.”

This certainly explains the Obama Administration’s response to ice storms in Tennessee in early 2009 … Obama showed no interest, wouldn’t visit or even declare it a disaster zone.

    Those lies about government spending on Katrina victims really were outrageous. The federal government spent over $100 Billion on Katrina relief, and waived the Stafford requirements more than once. As a U.S. Senator, which Obama was in 2007 when he made this speech, he should have known this — or certainly could have easily learned it, if he cared to. But the sleazy racial demagoguery is so much more fun than simply telling the truth, eh Barry?

    Here’s your post-racial, non-partisan Lightworker in all his glory, progressives (complete with a fake “Negro dialect”!). How do you like him now, chumps?

    Or the wildfires that caused so much havoc in Texas

Kenya-Kansas: Obama is half “God Damn” America and half “Boss Tom” Pendergast.

I gotta ask -just wtf did he have in his mouth to make it sound like that? Truly weird.

Professor: Given Team Obama’s stance on gay marriage, I am wondering what some of those pastors in the audience think now. A clever journalist wanting to get some real news might try and dig up an audience member or two and ask.

I know of friends who are in or associated with two different black baptist churches. The members of those churches detest the gay marriage plank, and are either voting for Romney or not voting for Obama. These aren’t conservative churches, mind — the members were heavily in the tank for Obama in 2008.

The best way this tape can be used, if I were in Team Romney, would be to develop a compare-and-contrast to how Obama speaks to a white crowd. I should think the black audience — especially those in the faith community — would be insulted at how they are being played AND how Obama thinks that they can’t do anything right for themselves. Those would be the points to highlight.

That Obama is a race-baiter is no new revelation to those of us who have been paying attention. He has an ugly soul.

I’m impressed by several things, having listened to the speech in the video several times:

1. Obama is no more sincerely one of the members of his audience than he is sincerely anything else. He is MORE in identity with them, but he is as cynically using them as he ever cynically uses anyone. Some of the idioms are very skillfully adopted, and I have only heard them used by Obama here, among the black ministers who employ them in daily discourse. But Obama is not a religious man. He openly lies to them about Katrina, and his values in office are inimical to the values of these religious men and women.

2. In his speech, he refers many times to “our God being big enough to do” something or other. I cannot escape the conviction he is talking about government.

3. The writer who suggested a second Obama term would see a war on the suburbs I think is totally vindicated. Obama HATES the suburb, and views it as a sink-hole into which the dominant culture has managed to escape from the inner city and their responsibility to the “community”. If he cannot reverse that, he will make the suburbs “pay their far share”.

4. Every writer who has suggested that this man is a radical, steeped deeply in racial identity politics and Collectivism, and a stranger to American values, is vindicated.

I think this tape is a bigger deal than the Prof. and many others. We don’t see it the way a lot of people will, since we’ve been aware of most or all of this on some level.

Much of America has not.

    Spot on, Rags.

    Every time he referred to “Gawd” or “Geezez Krise” in that speech my brain replayed his later reference to “my Muslim faith”.

    He says and is what’s expedient at the time. Nothing more, nothing less…and certainly nothing truthful.

    When he was a state senator other blacks in the Illinois legislature would joke about few things being funnier than Barry trying to talk like a bro.

      Ragspierre in reply to NC Mountain Girl. | October 3, 2012 at 11:28 am

      Yeh, he came up on the mean streets of an elite neighborhood in Honolulu.

      Even when we went to Chicago to “get down with the struggle”, he lived in Hyde Park.

      But narcissists live in a cloud of delusions and counterfeit.

Barry-O refers to a Stafford Act “requirement” that states “kick in at least ten percent”. Dems, in their response to this, are already stressing the loosening of Stafford Act requirements in the wake of 9/11, evidently because all the people in those towers were white.

There’s always a little kernel of truth in Barry-O’s deceptions…just enough to give the media cover for defending him. Here’s the whole ear of truth:

Monetary loss in Hurricane Katrina was $125 billion.

Monetary loss on 9/11 was $5 trillion.

Apples, oranges.

Of course, there were waivers granted to localities on the gulf coast that could not pay a portion of the aid. I hear there were white people who were affected by Katrina, too, but you’d never know it from the Racist-in-Chief’s speech.

Concerning the ‘much anticipated Obama video’ of last evening. “a “light-skinned” African-American “with no negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.” By gosh, Harry Reid was right on target, wasn’t he?

Barky has A LOT of nasty sides.

Obama whined that “twelve years later they still haven’t rebuilt New Orleans”.

He left out one minor detail. The people displaced by Hurricane Katrina didn’t want to go back.

But we can’t allow truth to get in the way of a good racist rant.

    Midwest Rhino in reply to creeper. | October 3, 2012 at 11:48 am

    I think he said 20 months later. I had many whitey friends with houses under water … they hadn’t rebuilt in 20 months either. Obama is using his magic thinking … “whitey owes us”.

    I spent many years in NOLA, but had moved before Katrina. It was very depressing to me, didn’t even want to go there to see the mess. I’m proud of my many friends that tore out their drywall, or sometimes completely rebuilt. They did rebuild it, though government did toss them some money.

    I do think government wasted a LOT of that money, and FEMA covering for wealthy people that choose to live on coasts needs to be reconsidered … but the poor were not overlooked. The mechanism to getting the aid distributed is through a lot of corrupt, mostly Democrat, hands. The free stuff parade will end, one way or another.

Obama is not our first Black President, he is however our first openly racist President.

NC Mountain Girl | October 3, 2012 at 11:11 am

Remember that Barry won because the media coverage convinced a slice of suburban America that he held the same values they did and that by voting for him they were signalling a desire to end racial discord.

For the last three years an ever growing number of those voters have been wondering what happened to the guy they voted for. There are several answers. Of those I was deceived is a lot more emotionally comforting than I was a fool. The fact that the media chose not to show large parts of this video strengthens the I was deceived idea.

I think it will have an impact.

Midwest Rhino | October 3, 2012 at 11:31 am

“Even in 2012, Obama’s actual past will come as a surprise to many.”

The people that reveal Obama’s ugly past have been rather successfully labeled as haters and racists themselves. But this video reveals Obama in the flesh, telling lies about Katrina aid, and blaming racists in DC.

Just who were the racists in DC of whom Obama was speaking, in his edgy Southern black church drawl? In 2007 the Democrats had control of Congress. This is Obama in the Raw, using lies to race bait a mob.

A short ad with Obama saying the line that New Orleans was shorted on aid, and print in bold and have a calm voice show there was over $110 billion thrown to Katrina.

Play the line about DC not caring, that (blacks) are not part of the “American family”. Pause it there and overwrite boldly, that Democrats held Congress even as he made that false claim. Add that the local government was black and Democrat, and state government was Democrat.

My understanding is that most of the poorer (largely black) were dispersed to Houston, Atlanta, and parts unknown. Rebuilding a part of the city that spent weeks under water is not simple, and being largely below sea level, it may not be so wise.

Obama complained that it wasn’t rebuilt in 20 months, but the WTC had not been rebuilt either. Promising to magically rebuild New Orleans falls in the same “make them build it, and give it to us for free” category as free phones and all these other unfunded entitlement promises.

[…] Professor Jacobson noted, it’s a reminder of “the nasty side of Obama…” …the side […]

The video shows what we already knew (we being GOP/conservatives). It would affect guilt-ridden white suburbanites NCMtGirl alludes to, should they ever see it.

This tape was grossly overhyped. Listening to Drudge, DC, and others, I expected to go home to see a tape of Obama secretly offering warheads to Iran or something. When they overhype like that, it makes them look desperate.
