That’s just wrong.They didn’t get his gums blue enough.
“America voted for this Marxist/Socialist pimp”
Yes they did, and if the polls have any credibility at all, they indicate that he is as popular as ever.
I am often castigated by the “dog in a manger” FReepers for expating, as they plan to stay and fight. Who are they going to fight? America is not being invade by a foreign power. It is being eaten alive from within.
If Americans want a neo-Marxist, socialist state, what can you do?
America has a serious disease, spreading rapidly due to the MSM and the educational system.
0bama disects himself.
...it contradicted the morality my mother had taught me, a morality of subtle distinctions- between individuals of goodwill and those who wished me ill, between active malice and ignorance of indifference.
I am going to have to give his mother more credit than I previously had. In her own words she was a "fellow traveler," IOWs a leftist, a communist. But here he is describing how she taught him about personal responsibility. It is an aspect of cause and effect. What Barack calls "subtle distinctions" is in essence that every person is responsible for their own actions and not for the actions of others.
And yet perhaps it was a framework that blacks in this country could no longer afford; perhaps it weakened black resolve, encouraged confusion within the ranks.
But he rejects that sound principle, his mothers guidance, in exchange for personal identification with a group he found more appealing than his mother.
Desperate times called for desperate measures, and for many blacks, times were chronically desperate.
Having rejected the principle of personal responsibility he could now allow in his mind the idea that all blacks should be free from that and justified in placing the blame on all whites. He no longer suffered from the yoke of his own actions thanks to the view his new friends gave him.
If nationalism could create a strong and effective insularity, deliver on its promise of self respect,...
Insularity from responsibility and respect derived from a group identity. He was finally free to act on the visions of self-grandeur his mother had instilled in him early on and he had found a source of inspiration.
... then the hurt it might cause well-meaning whites, of the inner turmoil it caused people like me, would be of little consequence.
The end justifies the means. He convinces himself of his rightness.
He is building a case, not for himself, but for a cause. For a culture of victim hood. It is the underpinning of all modern liberalism drawn from the essence of Marxist philosophy. It has the hallmark of a nationalist identity based on class distinctions defined by victim vs oppressor statuses. He didn't know it then I expect, this was just his way of dealing with his incongruous upbringing, but that was the root of his present day philosophy which is often enunciated as "our national identity" these days. Of course you won't be part of "our national identity" if you don't follow Barack Obama. How could you? He is defining that.
I'm sure he truly isn't interested in Jeremiah Wright's tired old black separatism. Obama is working on something much bigger than that. He does want to include white people. And brown and yellow and red and anyone else who wants to share in his vision. He wants us all to be a part of his hope for change, of his new nationalism.
It is much more than merely American nationalism too as the idea of national boundaries is as old and tired as Pastor Wright's myopic vision of identity politics. First things first of course. He needs to win over America first by securing the Presidency. But one need only share his vision of hope and change to be a part of Barack Obama's view of a "new day in politics" which is global in scope and Marxist in design.
He is Karl Marx' messiah. The fulfillment in flesh of the old communist prophet's dream of a worker's paradise where "you are your dream."
Obamassiah has come!

That new wig is hideous.
Over the ears, have no fears (he’s a sikh)
Ears showing, danger growing (he’s a muzzie)
My computer doesn’t have that picture in that directory.
Just stuff that laz would hit...
The number of people upset about Newsweek’s deification of Obama probably outnumber Newsweek’s actual subscribers. No one reads Newsweek, it’s a shambling, undead corpse kept alive by fantasies of online revenue - by getting upset over anything Newsweek publishes, it’s critics only throw a stray brain to a famished zombie.
Sometimes I swear that who ever is dressing her is trying to make her look ridiculous on purpose.
The Mahdi is back? The 12th Imam has returned?
Look’s like King Barry’s flashing his courtesans.
