Despite all the broken promises and inconsistencies, one thing seems clear about Obama. His socialist core beliefs have never really changed. Here he is in 2002, posted by Patterico and Morgen, giving a MLK speech at a church pitting people in classes against each other just as he does today.
Heres one where he talks about the rich being for non-violence because theyve got everything they want:
The philosophy of nonviolence only makes sense if the powerful can be made to recognize themselves in the powerless. It only makes sense if the powerless can be made to recognize themselves in the powerful. You know, the principle of empathy gives broader meaning, by the way, to Dr. King’s philosophy of nonviolence. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but rich people are all for nonviolence. Why wouldn’t they be? They’ve got what they want. They want to make sure people don’t take their stuff. But the principle of empathy recognizes that there are more subtle forms of violence to which we are answerable. The spirit of empathy condemns not only the use of firehoses and attack dogs to keep people down but also accountants and tax loopholes to keep people down.

the Ghost of Breitbart rides....
Another desperate attempt by conservative journalists to tarnish President Obama’s image... /sarc
YEAH BUT, I want them to get more and more of what they want, see that way they create JOBS. We have to build & service the stuff they want. Win Win.
This is indeed an incitement or justification for violence against the haves.
I know communists’ way of advancing power is to make the two fight, but it still makes me so angry - mostly at the f’n SHEEPERALS who deny that this is who this guy is.
Funny thing- the folks that used fire hoses and attack dogs to keep people down— that would be Democrats.
This is the real Obama, an American hating Communist who stokes class warfare at every turn, in order to destroy freedom.
Obama must surely have grown up around people who taught him to absolutely HATE people he perceived as “rich”; and now HE is exactly what he imagined they were. Covetousness personified; and he and Michelle have made “Whitey” pay, and pay, and pay, and pay . . .
Of course you know, to Liberals, ‘rich’ means anybody with a job.
