Admitted Socialist Occupies The White House

Here is a video that won’t get nearly the attention that the Romney video has gotten from our ‘mainstream media,’ for some odd reason. For instance, the only mention of it at the Washington Post is the blog piece below. And that ‘entry’ drips with scorn that Romney would be so low as to talk about this video in order to distract from his own video problems.

Obama In 1998: "I Actually Believe In Redistribution"

At an October 19, 1998 conference at Loyola University, Barack Obama spoke against "propaganda" that said government doesn’t work and the need to "pool resources and hence facilitate some redistribution because I actually believe in redistribution."

And here is how the Washington Post’s ‘Election’ blog tries to spin it:

Romney draws attention to Obama ‘redistribution’ remark from 1998

Posted by Sean Sullivan on September 18, 2012

Facing intense scrutiny over comments at a May fundraiser, Mitt Romney sought to change the subject on Tuesday by drawing attention to audio released online of President Obama saying in 1998 that he believes, to an extent, in the redistribution of wealth.

You see, Romney is just trying to change the subject. And never mind that it’s almost a certainty the Romney video was only brought up to change the subject away from Obama’s Middle East debacle.

But apparently, it isn’t newsworthy that we have a President who believes in redistribution, just like Karl Marx and every other communist has throughout history. Or maybe the Post doesn’t believe it is really news. Maybe they and the rest of our media guardians have known all along.

“We have two very different views about America. The president’s view is one of a larger government. There’s a tape just came out today with the president saying he likes redistribution. I disagree,” Romney said in an interview on Fox News…

The audio clip is 96 seconds long. Toward the end, Obama says “I actually believe in redistribution, at least at a certain level to make sure everyone’s got a shot.” The audio cuts off right after the word “shot,” so it is unclear what is said next.

It’s clearly doctored. (Sarcasm.) Meawhile, neither the Post nor the rest of the news media have noticed the glaring edits in Romney’s fundraiser tap.

The Obama campaign confirmed that is Obama’s voice on the recording and a spokesman moved to rebut Romney’s criticism of it.

Which is the only reason we are hearing about this in the Post.

“Fourteen years ago, then-Senator Obama was making an argument for a more efficient, more effective government – specifically citing city government agencies that he didn’t think were working effectively,” said Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt in a statement.

Obama was making a argument for a government that is more efficient at redistributing other people’s earnings.

“He believed then, and believes now, that there are steps we can take to promote opportunity and ensure that all Americans have a fair shot if they work hard.

What does income redistribution have to do with everyone having an equal opportunity? Is income redistribution now a civil right?

Unlike Governor Romney, he doesn’t believe that if you’re a student who applies for a loan you’re looking for a handout.”

No, but Mr. Obama wants to forgive student loans, to turn them into handouts.

The video was posted to YouTube by an individual with the username “Nick Cruz,” who according to his profile on the Web site, just joined YouTube on Tuesday.

Additional audio from what appears to be Obama at the same event was posted by “Tim Thomas” on Aug. 7. That post utilized the same layout of text on a white background accompanying the audio. The subject of that clip is welfare reform legislation.

This is the Washington Post’s subtle way of siccing their rabid minions on these two ‘wreckers.’ They want to do to them what they did to ‘Joe The Plumber.’

This isn’t the first time critics have tried to tie Obama to “redistribution” comments. During the 2008 presidential campaign, a 2001 interview in which Obama used the word “redistribution” came to light, but he did not appear to be advocating a wealth redistribution role for the Supreme Court, as an adviser to Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) suggested at the time.

Also in 2008, Obama faced attacks from the McCain campaign after he told Joe “The Plumber” Wurzelbacher, “I think when you spread the wealth around it’s good for everybody.”

“The Romney campaign is so desperate to change the subject that they’ve gone back to the failed playbook co-authored by Sarah Palin and Joe the Plumber,” added LaBolt.

It figures that a professional propagandist like Mr. LaBolt would view telling the truth about a candidate by citing his own words as a sign of desperation.

But why isn’t our news media reporting this clip? Isn’t it news that we have an admitted socialist occupying the White House? A man who claims he wants to represent all of the people? A man who believes in stealing from the producers of them to give to the slothful? After all, ‘redistribution’ is not ‘fairness. It is theft.

At the very least it is un-American. Or, at least, it used to be.

    Thanks all you students of the 1960s

    Because “we’re all in this thing together” and because we must not “leave nobody behind.”

    And because those who have been successful are preventing others from doing the same, and therefore the successful must be deprived of their freedom and property in order to “level the playing field” and make sure that “everybody’s got a shot.”

    Wow. How profound.

    It would all sound very charming if it hadn’t already been tried in the Soviet Union, Cuba, North Korea, and many other places––always with the same result.

    To see how his idea would work, we would have to take a careful look inside the old Soviet gulags, Mao’s China, the slave labor camps of North Korea, the torture chambers of Cuba and East Germany, the killing fields of Cambodia, and the rest of those workers’ paradises, and see exactly what went on there.

    Lots of people got a shot there.

    Unfortunately that is never part of a public school curriculum. If “there was a great teacher somewhere in your life,” chances are that teacher never taught you beans about any of that.

    Especially if your teacher was Frank Marshall Davis, Jeremiah Wright, or Bill Ayres.

    By the way, Mr. Hollande’s regime is ramping up a 75% tax rate for more redistributions in France. Which is why the French are leaving and moving to Belgium, England, and other places. I guess those French expats didn’t get the message : “We’re all in this thing together.”

    Shame on those Frenchies.

    But where will we go when helter-skelter comes down?

    If Obama redistributes his wealth to me, then I’ll vote for him.
