Video: Obama calls for 'democracy with a small d'
WND ^ | 9/18/12 | Aaron Klein

Posted on 09/18/2012 10:21:46 PM PDT by jwsea55

NEW YORK – A 1995 video depicts Barack Obama calling for “democracy with a small ‘d,’” while pushing a society based on collectivism and “common good.”

In the video unearthed by KleinOnline, Obama hails unions and collective bargaining as encapsulating the societal “common good” of which he speaks.

Obama urges society to collectively move “forward” – a word that would later serve as his 2012 campaign slogan.

Obama was speaking in an Aug. 11, 1995 interview pushing his just published book, “Dreams From My Father.” At the time, Obama was a community organizer planning to launch a political career.

Obama tells the interviewer the “best part” of the dream of his “African father and white American mother,” was the “notion that we collectively can decide on our fate.”

AND even republicans have a problem calling this guy a Marxist traitor..

Well they have a point America is overrun by people that don’t know the difference between Marxism and Capitalism..

Heck most don’t even know who the VeeP is.. let alone the Secretary of State..
Timothy Geithner is an absolute mystery to most..

America is severely DUMBED DOWN.. almost drooling..
ALL major Universitys are graduating stone flaming socialists..
Not just this year but for DECADES...

Who is at fault?.. Obviously the Teachers Unions..
And the other Unions generally..
America is as brain washed as Pavlov’s Dog’s..
And the metaphorical “bitches” are dumbest of all..

WHO allowed all this to happen?.. REPUBLICANS thats who..
Democrats are quite open about their plans.. and have been..
Democrats are quite clear, its the republicans that are delusional..

Republicans generally seem to be craven Cowards..
The right wing democrats are afraid of is non-existant...

What concerns about him at the beginning have been proven false?

Our Founding Fathers had so much forethought about what they feared and the checks they put in place to prevent them happening. Now what do we have?

Are you sure about that one?????

From all that I can discern, Marxist have to at least be able to put a sentence together that slightly doesn't make sense before they are accepted into the club.

Don’t forget the chaos that ensued after the election in 2000.
If this one is that close (like Mitt wins the electoral vote
and Shaka Zulu wins the popular vot) then all hell will be
unleashed upon us. Shaka Zulu will trump up 40 different kinds
of bogus election fraud claims and he will refuse to concede.

It will take M1A1 main battle tanks in the White House
driveway to remove him. Then you will REALLY see the SHTF.

Republicans for democracy ARE democrats..

Scariest quote in that clip:

Hmm...?

Is this what we call a "short list"?
Or a full-fledged Zero list?

Well of course he wants “small d” democracy.

Unfortunately for us, he wants the same kind of democracy for us that he helped install in Egypt and Libya.

“Democracy is like a street car; you ride it as far as you need, and then you get off” R.T. Erdogan, PM of Turkey

Another 4 years under obama-alinsky and the street car may finally reach the end of the line in the USA

Yep, he’s talking from the Marxist line of thought that says the US has ‘political democracy’, but not yet ‘economic democracy’.

We have a gutless congress who is too afraid to start impeachment until after the election. And if bam looses they will just drop it for sure and probably won do anything if bam wins.

Friends ask me if I have seen the movie 2016. Why?

Dizousa(sp)overlays how he grew up and views the world on to someone else and says this is that guys paradigm of the world.

Why can't we just accept who surrounded him for his entire life?

- His grandparents went to the Little Red Church in Seattle
- His mother concentrated on Russian/Marxist studies
- His big mentor in life was Frank Davis Marshall
- He essentially major in Marxist thought
- His major professorial influences were far leftist
- He is a disciple of Alinsky
- He is a disciple of Piven
- The people who took under their wings after college (giving that the benefit of the doubt), were and still are far leftists, unrepentant about murdering people
- His major political advisers are far leftists/Marxists
- Most of the people whom he surrounded himself with in the White House are.....ummmmmmm, Marxists
- The groups that wrote his esteemed healthcare are linked or fronts to the Communist Party

Yet we are supposed to ignore all that for someone else's view of the world.

vpintheak, you are so right: we let our congress just do whatever it wants.

This video is FAR more damning than the latest video with his "redistribution" statement.  Will FoxNews pick up on this video and run it? 

Democracy with a small "d".  Let's see him explain that one.  Bolshevik.
