Skip to comments.The Osawatomie Speech: A Defining Moment In History
Posted on 12/09/2011 7:06:51 PM PST by GlockThe Vote
I am not a fan of Barack Obama, but I have not criticized him as harshly as many other writers do. I have a different view of him. I see him as a rather run of the mill Progressive/Liberal who firmly believes his ideology and acts somewhat consistently on those ideas. Rather than pillory him personally, my approach has been to criticize the philosophy of which he is a product. In my mind, it's all about ideas. I detest his ideas because I believe they are anti-intellectual and they don't work.
There are many like Mr. Obama out there. His admirers perceive themselves as being the "downtrodden", envious of the accomplishments and wealth of those whose abilities they cannot match. I get that: if you can't achieve it, take it from those who can. Even those limousine liberals who have wealth and accomplishment perceive themselves as either being guilty of their wealth or come from backgrounds where these ideas are passed along. Mr. Obama is no different than any other politician: he seeks power and admiration and the ability to impose his ideas on America.
We here at the Daily Capitalist try everyday to combat those ideas by demonstrating their lack of efficacy and by presenting analyses of events in a free market framework which analyses have actually been quite accurate in forecasting economic outcomes. We try to be the antidote to the Progressive juggernaut.
And then I heard President Obama's speech at Osawatomie, Kansas this week.
It perhaps wasn't surprising, but I was appalled. It was deceitful, inaccurate, revisionist, and demagogic.

Nothing new there.
Could be because Hussin is a Commie.
I have spoken to a few people, and let me say, even some mild mannered people i know are really upset over this. I am a hard charging type, but even many mild types are getting moved to anger by thugbama.
There’s A Communist Living in the White House!!
If anyone this the speech was given to channel TR, they are totally misled.
Obama was in fact channeling the Maoist terrorist, Bill Ayers.
The obamunist pissed off a lot of people this week.
Studying Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, and Friedrich Engels without studying Adam Smith, Friedrich von Hayek, and Milton Friedman hardly qualifies one as "well educated."
Could not post the whole thing, but it gets better. You can tell this guy went from not liking thugbama to hating him like we do.
Uh, do you think so?
This just in from Free Republic:
College mate says obastard is a marxist and always has been one.
I can honestly say I have never had any doubt this cretin is a communist, an imposter and an illegal candidate. Someday, if there is justice and if the United States is what it should be once again the truth will come out and there will be a day of reckoning. I hope I live to see it.
My choice for the Republican candidate is Perry.
Whoever is the Republican candidate, we must stand united to rid ourselves of those now in power.
Now, its a simple theory. And we have to admit, its one that speaks to our rugged individualism and our healthy skepticism of too much government. Thats in Americas DNA. And that theory fits well on a bumper sticker. (Laughter.) But heres the problem: It doesnt work. It has never worked. (Applause.) It didnt work when it was tried in the decade before the Great Depression. Its not what led to the incredible postwar booms of the 50s and 60s. And it didnt work when we tried it during the last decade. (Applause.) I mean, understand, its not as if we havent tried this theory."
Obama is a hell of a lot smarter then most conservatives give him credit for, myself included.
Only Gingrich can take on this argument and win.
There's not another GOP candidate in the race that can argue with this guy and win.
Sure, all of us kno0w Obama is a charlatan, liar, thief and communist.
But for that 15-20% that will decide this election, somebody standing up and saying their closer to God than the other guy will not win.
What is more, one of the commenters in the blog page has identified “why Osawatomie?” as a location? Yes, Teddy Roosevelte spoke there with his nationalist launch, but... eerily, “Osawatomie” was also the title of the Weather Underground’s newsletter/magazine— as in William Ayers.
This is not coincidence. And a great comment on this lie of a speech. Will someone remove this stone from our shoe?
Ought to read he full thread— someone else caught the Weather connection.
I know. I heard Bill Clinton in Oslo, Norway in 1969 talk nonsense about Kissinger building a huge underground computer, a mile underground, a mile high and a mile square to track every human on the planet. He was paranoid that Kissinger wanted to take over a one-world government.
Zer0’s picture of economics is pure gobbledigook used to justify his Marxists world view which he learned from his Communist mother and Communists like Frank Marshall Davis.
It just amazes me that this is news to anybody. I never saw anything else in 0baMao.
I don't believe that's true. Obama very often refers to the "middle class", which is not a communist concept. I also do not think Obama is a socialist. He does not appear to push government OWNERSHIP of private business (ex. GM selling stock, Fiat buying Chrysler).
Though he apparently favors private business, he demands to control it for "state" purposes.
Rush linked Obama to the proper economic ideology a few weeks ago: "Benito Obama" - in terms of economic ideology, Obama is a fascist.
Obama is a fascist.
Fascism is a step in the process of acheiving communism. Neither fascists nor communists can abide a middle class and Obama (with Clinton before him) is destroying the middle class as quickly as he can by collapsing the real estate values and market. Middle class wealth in America mostly rests upon real estate ownership.

Thank you for pointing this out. I learned about National Socialism/Fascism in the post WWII German education system. It heightened my sensitivities where they needed to be heightened - with the express desire to instill, in future generations, the ability to discern political moves to further the goals of fascism, a manifestation of the corporate state. We are there. Sadly, most everyone around me is asleep. Thank you for your part in helping wake people up, although here it is probably like preaching to the choir."
