’94 Tape Shows Obama Hatred Of Middle Class

Exclusive Audio: In 1994, Obama Criticized Clinton’s "Values" Pitch

Zeke Miller | Wednesday Sept 5, 2012

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A previously unheard 1994 lecture by a young Barack Obama offers a new glimpse of his days as a up-and-coming, liberal Illinois politician.

The recording, given to BuzzFeed by a Republican source, comes from a lecture on the nature of community values he delivered at Nebraska Wesleyan University on September 9, 1994.

Notice that it was not uncovered by any investigative journalist. They do not investigate Obama.

Obama told the students in Lincoln, Neb. that "values are dynamic,"and he dismissed appeals from everyone from Bill Clinton to Dan Quayle to "static" or "Ozzie and Harriet" values. Obama suggested those values — "The wife is at home, she’s not working, Dad’s got his 9 to 5, there are no African-Americans in these family values." — were woefully out of date.

So Obama believes that blacks have a completely different set of values from whites?

But notice that even during the "last century," Obama was mocking these values as being out of date and from the days of ‘black and white TV.’

For the record, Obama had joined Reverend Wright’s church six years earlier, in in 1988. And he said he did so because of their pledge to the radical ‘Black Value System,’ which attacked middle class values as a trap for African-Americans. (See below.)

But in reality, Obama’s hatred of the middle class is lifelong.

Obama argued that the talk of values was empty without social action, and without a vigorous government role: "It’s not easy to live up to your ideals, it requires sacrifice. It may require taxes on the part of the society. It may require that you go without certain luxuries that you become accustomed to."

In other words, Obama was obsessed with redistribution even then. And naturally he wanted to do that through taxes and punishing ‘the rich.’ Which is still what he wants to do 18 years later.

"There’s no discussion of poverty in these values," Obama said. "There’s not much talk about a nuclear arms race that was taking place on the television programs," he said. "So the notion is that we can somehow return to that time and recapture those values without acknowledging all the things that were left out. Well, that’s not the case." …

No poverty or arms race discussions in sitcoms? How shocking. But which TV shows did Obama believe we should base our values on?

In the 1994 recording, Obama speaks derisively of the "values" articulated by leading Democratic figures like Bill Clinton and Jesse Jackson.

Just think, Obama was (is) not only to the left of Bill Clinton, but Jesse Jackson as well.

"Values have made a comeback," Obama is heard saying. "Dan Quayle talks about values. He talks about Murphy Brown and her lack of values. Bill Clinton talks about values. Jesse Jackson talks about values. So we have values all over the place. Politicians really like values now. Part of the reason for that is values are cheap, at least the way they talk about them. You don’t have to pay any money or tax anybody to talk about values. Family values, American values, values.”

“First as I said I think values are dynamic. Part of the reason I don’t trust Dan Quayle talking about values and I often don’t trust Bill Clinton talking about values is they tend to have a static notion of values. Dan Quayle talks about values in terms of Ozzie and Harriet values…

I’m always struck by values that are embodied in these television shows which I think are the values that people have in mind when they talk about return to American values. The wife is at home, she’s not working, Dad’s got his 9 to 5, there are no African-Americans in these family values. There’s no discussion of poverty in these values. There’s not much talk about a nuclear arms race that was taking place on the television programs. So the notion is that we can somehow return to that time and recapture those values without acknowledging all the things that were left out. Well, that’s not the case.”

The audio recording is one of several moments in the 1990s in which Obama made clear that he didn’t consider himself a Clinton Democrat…

No, Bill Clinton was far too conservative for Obama. In fact, he still is.

For the record, here is an excerpt from the mission statement of Reverend Wright’s church, which embraced the racist, separatist, ‘Black Value System’ (which has since been expunged from their website):


Statement of Purpose

We have prayerfully called the wisdom of all past generations of suffering Blacks for guidance in fashioning an instrument of Black self-determination, the Black Value System

Disavowal of the Pursuit of “Middleclassness”

Classic methodology on control of captives teaches that captors must keep the captive ignorant educationally, but trained sufficiently well to serve the system. Also, the captors must be able to identify the “talented tenth” of those subjugated, especially those who show promise of providing the kind of leadership that might threaten the captor’s control.

Those so identified as separated from the rest of the people by:

Killing them off directly, and/or fostering a social system that encourages them to kill off one another.

Placing them in concentration camps, and/or structuring an economic environment that induces captive youth to fill the jails and prisons.

Seducing them into a socioeconomic class system which while training them to earn more dollars, hypnotizes them into believing they are better than others and teaches them to think in terms of “we” and “they” instead of “us”.

So, while it is permissible to chase “middle-incomeness” with all our might, we must avoid the third separation method-the psychological entrapment of Black “middleclassness”: If we avoid the snare, we will also diminish our “voluntary” contributions to methods A and B. And more importantly, Black people no longer will be deprived of their birthright, the leadership, resourcefulness, and example of their own talented persons

Remember this whenever you hear Mr. Obama talk about how much he wants to help to preserve the middle class.

    Like any abandoned child, he is angry. However, many of that type go on to deal with their anger in positive ways, often getting married and raising kids of their own in loving homes. Many also carry on in the same way with mild variations where their anger manifests itself in unproductive and counter-intuitive ways.

    Obama is damaged. So badly that he has fallen into the trap of living a life of pure anger. It’s just beneath the surface and doesn’t take much to bring it out.

    He wants his daddy. Knowing that it is an empty vessel is part of the healing process. He has never tried to heal or get well, partly because everyone gives him a pass on his bad behavior.

    Sadly, he believes his own anger will save the day. He is so very wrong on so many things that it is impossible to pick which is the stand-out. But if you stop for a moment and think about it this way, when Obama does something that damages an industry, a population segment, or a tradition, ask yourself, “how would an angry child approach this?” and you’ll get your answer.

      …..”He wants his daddy……”

      Hedidn’t have a daddy, Rusty. All he had was a sperm donor. He didn’t have a mommy, either. All she was was an incubator for a fertilized egg.

      It’s no wonder he manifests such self-loathing.

    The feeling is mutual, Barry

    Values are “dynamic” only as long as they are changing to what they want to see or can convince people things are changing. Take a look at this way–your values are to stay on the road and not drive off a cliff or into other traffic, and follow the traffic laws and signs. Same as has been going on since people first drove cars as it works and makes sense.

    If your values are “dynamic,” then what’s to stop you from driving off a cliff? I usually get the response from liberals that it’s not about driving or maybe the speed limits are unjust. What they never seem to get is there’s not point to changing values if they work well.

    But otherwise–crud, the intro to Obama shows he’s been exactly the same “values” wise since then, along with his “uh, well, uh” speaking without a teleprompter.

    I also remember 1994 well; after beginning to question my liberal indoctrination in higher education that was when I ran full on into multiculturalism and political correctness in grad school. Without giving away details it says a lot that someone projects her view onto all her clients that they’re lower class people and that I’m a middle class person who has to be taught how to deal with them, along with all her interpretations of mine or their behavior.

    I’d wrongly assume that as a grown adult with work experience already that I could tell how things went when I met a client, instead no matter how it looked to me I was insulting and offending people left and right, to the point of being chastised for how I held a clipboard.

    She read all this in because hatred and uncontrolled fear of them, which was projected onto me and everyone else around, and that I think ultimately is what is at the core of all political correctness.

    So that’s why Obama made Michelle bring in their middle-class income while he suffered writers block as his free office at the University of Chicago given by a Republican, and their 3rd bedroom office was to distracting.
    Then using his mother’s apt in Indonesia for quietness as his mother in the U.S. dying from cancer.

    He blamed it on being an only child for his isolation from wife and children.
    He at first enjoyed Michelle not moving to D.C. and having his own apartment feeling like a bachelor
    again, saying she did not want to be in the boiling pot.

    Michelle only became happy after moving into the White House where she see’s her husband at dinner. No more 12 hour days ending in seedy hotels trying to raise funds keeping them apart.
