Skip to comments.Obama 1998 Criticizes Chicago Schools, Housing: Looks for "Trick" to Transform Government
Posted on 09/20/2012 1:05:11 AM PDT by Reaganite Republican
In the 1998 video (linked below) of Obama saying "I actually believe in redistribution," he also said he was looking for a "trick" to structure government in a more effective way to accomplish that redistribution of wealth, but he also criticized Chicago public schools and the Chicago Housing authority which is the perfect opportunity, less than two months away from election day, to remind us of how Obama and his cronies work when it comes to housing, schools, and his commitment to both...
Chosen to receive a grant:
The South Shore African Village Collaborative for their Celebrate African-American Holiday of Juneteenth (celebrating the Emancipation Proclamation). Some African-Americans celebrate Juneteenth instead of the Fourth of July (a report fromTexas). Kurtz commented that in his reporting of Obamas previous church, Trinity United Church of Christ, some members told him that Juneteenth was their Independence Day, not Fourth of July (Kurtz did not say that all members held this view).
Turned down to receive a grant:
*The Chicago Algebra Project: goal to increase student achievement
*The District 5 Math Initiative: goal to aid Hispanic students in the process of learning English, to further learn math and science.
Kurtz characterized the information he viewed as showing grant preferences for ethnic identity projects. The grants were evidently not given to schools, but rather to external partners, to which schools sought to attach themselves such as a South Shore African Village Collaborative.
In the meantime, after external partners received millions, ethnic identity didnt help math and science scores.
It is interesting to note that this Chairman of the Board position was Obamas first executive experience.
Theres more: Obamas connections to the Gamaliel Foundation, Kurtz says has a core point advocating for a form of liberation theology. He further states that his research shows that Jeremiah Wrights Black Liberation Theology preaching is not an anomaly.How about funding African puberty rights to the tune of thousands and thousands of dollars:
The South Shore African Village Collaborative (SSAVC) was very much a part of the Afrocentric rites of passage movement, a fringe education crusade of the 1990s. SSAVC schools featured African-Centered curricula built around rites of passage ceremonies inspired by the puberty rites found in many African societies. In and of themselves, these ceremonies were harmless. Yet the philosophy that accompanied them was not. On the contrary, it was a carbon-copy of Jeremiah Wrights worldview.
...and uh my suggestion to you is that the, the trick...the trick is figuring out how do we structure government systems that pool resources and hence, facilitate some distribution, because I actually believe in redistribution...You and I are Obama's delivery system, that's been the "trick" all along, confirming Romney's remarks that 47% of Americans will vote for Obama because they pay no taxes. No trick to getting Obma out of office. Just show at the polls and vote.
Romney should go to that location and campaign. Hold a presser there. Talk this up.
