In a recent interview, Princeton University Professor Cornel West and journalist Tavis Smiley railed against President Barack Obama, saying: “He‚Äôs rightly associated much more with the oligarchs than with poor people.”
When the black intelligentsia decides to speak the truth about how Obama does not care about poor black people, it‚Äôs a sure sign the average black American has long ago come to grips with this troubling reality.¬† A black commentator, George E. Boykin, gives credence to this assertion in his scathing article ‚ÄúAll Hype: Are Black Americans Abandoning Obama in Droves in 2012?‚ÄĚ
Another journalist, Andres Stiles, published his shocking article ‚ÄúStunning lack of diversity in Obama campaign‚ÄĚ, which shows how Obama has refused to put blacks in his Chicago campaign headquarters.
Notably, in 2008, a journalist with the Boston Globe, Binyamin Appelbaum, was so appalled by what Obama did to poor blacks in a Chicago slum that he wrote a lengthy expose entitled ‚ÄúGrim proving ground for Obama's housing policy.‚ÄĚ
According to that article, then Illinois Senator Obama funneled tax payer‚Äôs money to his slum lord buddy and chief fund-raiser, Antoin "Tony" Rezko, who is now a convicted felon.¬†¬† Rezko took tax money but refused to rehabilitate dilapidated housing in a poor black neighborhood in Obama‚Äôs district, leaving the buildings to decay to the point where they were no longer habitable.
Applebaum‚Äôs article also reports that five other developers who raised campaign money for Obama received tax dollars as well.¬† Rezko alone raised at least $200,000, by Obama‚Äôs own accounting.¬† Obama also made a shady deal with Rezko in 2005 that helped Obama buy an expensive house in an upscale Chicago neighborhood, well away from poor blacks.
Since becoming president, Obama has created 17% black unemployment.¬† He also terminated welfare reform in his budget, which stopped the use of the money to help blacks get jobs and off of welfare.¬† Republican intervention in Congress forced Obama to reinstate welfare reform.¬† Obama has sided with his left-wing supporters in the teachers‚Äô unions, acting against the best interest of poor black children.¬† He eliminated funding for the DC school choice opportunity scholarship program that was helping black parents get their children out of failing schools.¬† The article by Dick Armey ‚ÄúSchool Choice = Good for Kids, Bad for Unions. Can't Politicians Do the Math?‚ÄĚ explains how Republicans made Obama reinstate the school choice program in DC.
Obama has done nothing to solve our nation‚Äôs housing crisis that was created by Democrats who forced banks to make loans to people who could not pay them back.¬† To see just how blacks were devastated by the housing market crash read the article ‚ÄúHow Obama Bankrupted Black Homeowners.‚ÄĚ
In a speech to the Congressional Black Caucus, Obama had the gall to tell black people to stop complaining and stop whining about the harm he has caused and go out to vote for him.¬† Thomas Sowell in his article ‚ÄúStop Whining'?‚ÄĚ points out just how insulting Obama is to black Americans, while catering to other groups, such as gays and Hispanics.
A hard-hitting article ‚ÄúRace In America - Are blacks hypocrites or stupid?‚ÄĚ by Ben Kinchlow addresses the issue of why blacks are voting 80-90% for Obama in the face of his utter disdain for black Americans.
Kinchlow wrote the eye-opening book ‚ÄúBlack YellowDogs‚ÄĚ, which further explores why black Americans now vote monolithically for the Democratic Party, even though, as author Michael Scheuer wrote, the Democratic Party is the party of the four S‚Äôs:¬† slavery, secession, segregation and now socialism.
There are two articles which demonstrate in stark detail Obama‚Äôs socialist end-game for America, an end where our entire country looks like the black communities he has¬† destroyed.¬† One article is ‚ÄúDetroit: The Moral of the Story‚ÄĚ by Kevin D. Williamson .
The other article is the Investor‚Äôs Business Daily editorial ‚ÄúDecline In Obama's Chicago Clue To His Second Term.‚ÄĚ
To understand how Obama could be so morally bankrupt that he would deliberately hurt poor black children, one need only look into his background that he and his liberal media allies have tried to either downplay or keep hidden from the public.
Obama‚Äôs white mother was a socialist from Kansas and his black Kenyan father was a Marxist, as was his Indonesian step-father.¬† His childhood mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, was an avowed Communist.¬† Obama had a 20-year relationship with Rev. Jeremiah Wright who spewed out hateful, anti-American rhetoric.¬† Obama also consorted with domestic terrorists, Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dorn.
In his book, ‚ÄúDreams From My Father‚ÄĚ, Obama bragged about how he sought out Marxists professors and used drugs while in college.¬† The article ‚ÄúObama and His Pot-Smoking ‚ÄėChoom Gang‚Äô‚ÄĚ by ABC News reporter, Jonathan Karl, sheds light on Obama‚Äôs pot-smoking past.
Another journalist, Gavon Laessig, went into further details about Obama‚Äôs drug abuse in the article ‚ÄúA User's Guide To Smoking Pot With Barack Obama.‚ÄĚ
While in Chicago, Obama took his Marxist leanings to a new height and joined a third party dedicated to socialism.¬† Details are provided in the article ‚ÄúObama‚Äôs Third-Party History - New documents shed new light on his ties to a leftist party in the 1990s‚ÄĚ by Stanley Kurtz.
An even more disturbing account of Obama‚Äôs radical socialist past is provided in the article ‚ÄúBarack Obama ‚ÄĒ portrait of a socialist as a not so very young man‚ÄĚ by Paul Mirengoff .
Obama launched his 2012 re-election campaign based on the Marxist tenets of class warfare and wealth envy.¬† He has been the most divisive president in our nation‚Äôs history as explained in Salena Zito‚Äôs article ‚ÄúObama's Hyphenated America.‚ÄĚ
He is also governing against the will of the people, witness how he is refusing to enforce our laws and crammed that tax-laden ObamaCare down our throats while the Democrats controlled both houses of Congress during Obama‚Äôs first two years in office.¬† Charles Krauthammer wrote a chilling article ‚ÄúThe imperial presidency revisited‚ÄĚ that exposes how Obama is functioning like a socialist dictator.
Come November, we, the American people, will decide between two competing visions for our country.¬† Will we remain a free and prosperous pro-market nation, governed by the people and for the people through our elected representatives?¬† Or will we continue down the path of totalitarianism, ruled by an all-powerful federal government controlled by Obama, a tyrannical Marxist dictator?
