Obama on how to talk to whites
PoliticalMavens.com ^ | Judith A. Klinghoffer

Posted on 03/18/2008 3:57:46 PM PDT by rob777

In the good, old tradition of revolutionaries, Obama hides in plain print. So, before listening to his speech, it’s worth while to note the following passages from his autobiography:

On p. 94-95 he describes an effective tactic to deal with White people:

It was usually an effective tactic, another one of those tricks I had learned: People were satisfied so long as you were courteous and smiled and made no sudden moves. They were more than satisfied; they were relieved - such a pleasant surprise to find a well-mannered young black man who didn’t seem angry all the time.

Indeed, when he was a community organizer (age 22 prior to going to law school) he happily cooperated with Rafiq, a former gangster turned Nation of Islam. He even believed that Black Nationalism was a good therapy for Blacks. That was also the reason he supported Wright (pp. 190-200). For he shares Michelle’s sentiments of alienation, came to believe that race should trump everything and it should be anti-white:

. . . :all the black people who, it turned out, shared with me a voice that whispered inside them - “You don’t really belong here.”In a sense, then, Rafiq was right when he insisted that, deep down, all blacks were potential Nationalists. The anger was there, bottled up and often turned inward. And . . . I wondered whether, for now at least, Rafiq wasn’t also right in preferring that that anger be redirected; whether a black politics that suppressed rage towards white generally, or one that failed to elevate race loyally above all else, was a politics inadequate to the task.

It was a painful thought to consider, as painful now as it has been years ago. 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 has a personal stake in that moral framework; I’d discovered that I couldn’t escape it if I tried. 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. Desperate times called for desperate measures, and for many blacks, times were chronically desperate. If nationalism could create a strong and effective insularity, deliver on its promise of self respect, then the hurt it might cause well-meaning whites, of the inner turmoil it caused people like me, would be of little consequence.

If nationalism could deliver. As it turned out, questions of effectiveness, and not sentiment, cause most of my quarrels with Rafiq.

In other words, Barack was willing to sacrifice his mother and his grandparents on the alter of black nationalism. His sentiments were in lime with those of Rafiq, the Nation of Islam activist. That is the reason he chose a black nationalist church run by “Reverend Wright” who explained to him (p.284):

“Life’s not safe for a black man in this country, Barack. Never has been. Probably never will be.”

Sorry, guys, but there is nothing post racial about Barack. He has merely learned that it is advantageous to convince whites that he is.

The thought of President Obama inviting Jeremiah Wright to sleep in the Lincoln Bedroom, and continuing to keep counsel with him, puts me in mind of that famous line from the 1969 movie Putney Swope:

"And relax, gentlemen, I'm not gonna rock the boat. I'm gonna SINK it."

Okay, let me get this strait.

Obama marries a woman who talks of her hatred for what America stands for, his religious confidante preaches his hatred of America, and Obama is believed to be a well-manered masochist lacking of hate?

Sounds plausible. /s

Really? At age 22 he is admitting he was angry but was smart enough to know that turning anger into perhaps violence like his freind is not useful or effective and that’s a knock on him?

I am getting pissed off at Anger-Nazis! LOL! If you are 22 and not angry, you ain’t hooked up right.

Of course being courteous and smiling is going to get a better response. What a moronic thing to say "one of those tricks I had learned". I guess it's a "trick" if he's being courteous to a white person. What an effing racist!

Actually Michelle and Wright molded Berry into Barack. He has just learned how to smile and not let the hate show through his eyes. Michelle could learn from him on that point!

Did it ever occur to this doofus that white people like everyone--not just blacks--to act this way? Does he really think little old white ladies are comfortable around young white men who are rude, never smile, and "make sudden moves" [whatever that means]?

Perhaps they just are a ways behind Barack in "bogarting joints"?

Apparently some publisher back then thought it was a great idea to have a bunch of people that age publish their autobiographies, and Barry's was one of them. I ran into another one in a bookstore once, with a title something like Makes Me Wanna Holler. It was an extremely hateful rant by a young black man who admitted he had never suffered any discrimination himself--compared to him, Jeremiah Wright is Mr. Rogers.

Exactly. Politeness is an asset, no matter the color of one's skin. Seething racism and creepy politics under a "happy face" is another matter.

He's toast.

And if Hillary snags the election, blacks will stay home or vote McCain.

If Obama wins, many Latinos, Jews and those that don't in general like to hear God D America will not vote for him.

Democrats are dealing with self destruction over race here.

You would think that that is common sense, wouldn't you? But no, because he IS a racist. Beyond that, he is a Harvard, (WELL educated) lawyer. All of his refutations on this matter of his pastor, are well orchestrated, well choreographed, defense for his client, Himself! In other words, listen to him talk, and you will hear “lawyer speak”, as if speaking in closing arguments as defense attorney for himself, as his own client.

Good graphic Phil -

Soros in sloppy clothes on his left on the aisle

A very stage-managed production

Obama has said numerous times to his campaign rallys:

“A light will shine down on you and it will make you vote for me!”

-

Few have now noticied yet how leftie ad firms and execs have slipped in a huge out of proportion percentage of pre-Obama clones on TV ads for big corporations - I wondered about this and a Greenwich ad exec admitted to me it is going on bigtime - starting a number of years ago

I grabbed some good vidcaps tonight on FNC

First one I`ll post is the other day when he (wink-wink) claimed “I never heard Wright say...”

Of course today Obama confessed that he has heard many of (allegedly former convert to Islam! You only hear “ex-Marine” No wonder Wright was unable to get a Baptist church anywhere to hire him!) Jerimiah Wright say all those things from his church pulpit

So Barack Hussein Obama Junior! starts off with his blantant lies and “do-overs” even before the DNC Convention!

In a blind comic defence of this I watched a parade of Obama*s groupies on TV say:

“It*s a political campaign - and Obama MUST GET ELECTED to make CHANGES! Obama MUST BE ELECTED PRESIDENT”

-

8% - pro-Wright (poll) blacks are 12% of US population now

Tonight on FNC I heard a young hispanic college student at TCU say “Nobody believes Obama now about Wright!”

...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 indentity. 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 victimhood. 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 upbrining, 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 nationalsim 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!

As far as I am concerned Obama is liar...a big one. It seems to me he didn’t know about what this Rev said before & now he does ....Too much BS for me. All I know is that any Rev who spoke as this one did would make me stay far away from a man who is supposed to be preaching the word of God. IMHO this so called Rev is no better the the Pastor Fred Phelps. Both are kooks. And Obama makes very uneasy. I think he is a sneaky man & I can see where his angry wife got her anger. God help us if he gets elected.

LOL, yes, it is somewhat of an eerie look. The graphic is ‘pieced’ in three sections, if you look you will see Soros has one grey pantleg and one tan pantleg, lol.

It’s both ‘him’- spliced- but with a variation in coloring.

Yes he is a magician. He does a lot of amazing tricks but one is to appear to float about a foot or more above the ground. He does it right on the street in front of people that just happen to be there. They freak out. It looks quite amazing even on video.
