Skip to comments.Obama Set to Continue Class Warfare

After five failed years of leadership that has devastated the American soul and economy, Obama is getting desperate. ObamaCare has been a huge disaster and the situation will only get more dire as the year goes on and people start to see and feel the effects of the law, his constant lying about the Affordable Care Act has been exposed, and the public's faith in his character is plummeting. Thank goodness for the old progressive liberal standby of class warfare. Yep, Obama plans to hoodwink the low information voters yet again by whipping up class envy and hatred. In the mind of a liberal, someone who is successful only got that way by cheating and stealing from those poor unfortunate souls at the bottom of the socio-economic ladder.
Progressive liberals like Obama despise success as they realize that it proves the big lie that liberals have been peddling for decades. A person does not become successful in business or creatively by the benevolent dictates of the government or of the collective. A person achieves success through their own individuality, as expressed through hard work and willpower. The concept of the individual is anathema to liberals as they want to keep people hoodwinked into believing that their happiness is only attainable by the actions of the state. Creating a concept for a business, spending years building up that business as you work long hours for little or no pay, and eventually reaping the rewards after years of sacrifice is done by the individual, not the collective. That is why the progressive left tirelessly works to destroy those who have persevered through their own efforts. In the past, we revered people who sacrificed and worked hard to have a better life. It's the essential American story of legal immigrants coming to the USA, working as a dishwasher in a small restaurant, working hard for years and years, and then eventually owning that restaurant and passing it along to their children. Now such a thing is considered abhorrent due to the hysteria of class warfare.
Progressive liberals never ask people to strive for lofty goals but rather prey upon the basest and ugliest desires of people in order to gain power. They appeal to jealousy, not sacrifice and initiative. They shout down innovation and individuality whilst preaching the false gospel of conformity and rage. The incredibly sad fact is that the policies of the left has resulted in the deaths of tens of millions of people (Stalin's purges, China's re-education camps, etc.) and misery and poverty across the globe. Yet many people still fall for the fool's gold promise of socialism as pushed by Obama and his progressive cronies found in government, the media, and entertainment.
Now Obama and Harry Reid are pushing an extension of jobless benefits, which has just passed a hurdle in the Senate as six Republicans voted for it. As usual, the $6 billion price tag for the bill is all borrowed money as there are offsetting costs anywhere in the budget. Obama will push this bill, along with other measures, such as increasing the minimum wage, to stoke the class warfare embers in time for his State of the Union address. One aspect I find hysterical is that he's pushing "Promise Zones." These are areas where the federal government will give tax incentives, housing incentives, and education grants in order to fight poverty. Funny thing is that's exactly what the federal government has been doing for over fifty years and it hasn't worked. In fact, it's made things worse. People taking chare of their own lives without government influence is what lifts people out of poverty. I don't want Obama's "Promise Zones." I just want the original promise zone I was raised in to come back, a promise zone called America.
I wonder sometimes what people like Obama could do if they were truly nice people.
Would this be a good time to mention that the EPA is banning our woodstoves?
Typical Marxist dictator. Turn the people against one another and you won’t have to explain the failure of your healthcare scheme.
Obama has a pragmatic reasons for this.
Obamacare dropped his approval with liberals and independents, not Republicans who already disapproved.
This is rallying his base behind him and against GOP again after they got demoralized last year,
he is worried they will stay home in November.
A campaign based upon envy, one of the 7 deadly sins, and in contravention of one of the 10 Commandments - Thou Shalt Not Covet Thy Neighbors Goods. Oh passe, eh you libs?
He has to do this—Its all he’s got in the deck—The Race card and the Class warfare card. The rest he has squandered away.
