Obama On Tape In 2001: Warren Court Not Radical Enough

Says it’s a “tragedy” that the constitution wasn’t reinterpreted to force redistribution of wealth, and discusses the best way to bring about redistributive justice for blacks, (Joe the Plumbers all across this nation should perk up their ears):

You know what’s a tragedy? That this guy has more than 20% of the vote. It’s a tragedy for us all if he gets the liberal supermajority he needs for his grand scheme of “redistributive change”.

God help us.

Hat tip: Gateway Pundit

UPDATE:

Speaking of “reparative economic work”….I seem to remember Obama stating unequivocally that he’s against reparations…..*google* *google* Oh what do you know...back in August he tried to convince us that, yep, that’s always been his position:

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama opposes offering reparations to the descendants of slaves, putting him at odds with some black groups and leaders.

The man with a serious chance to become the nation’s first black president argues that government should instead combat the legacy of slavery by improving schools, health care and the economy for all.

“I have said in the past — and I’ll repeat again — that the best reparations we can provide are good schools in the inner city and jobs for people who are unemployed,” the Illinois Democrat said recently.

I suppose in Obama’s world “reparative economic work” in the form of restribution of wealth, AKA “spreading the wealth”, is totally different from “reparations”.

UPDATE II:

Bill Whittle weighs in at NRO:

This redistribution of wealth, he states, “essentially is administrative and takes a lot of time.It is an administrative task. Not suitable for the courts. More suitable for the chief executive.

Now that’s just garden-variety socialism, which apparently is not a big deal to may voters. So I would appeal to any American who claims to love the Constitution and to revere the Founding Fathers… I will not only appeal to you, I will beg you, as one American citizen to another, to consider this next statement with as much care as you can possibly bring to bear: “And uh, to that extent, as radical as I think people tried to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn’t that radical. It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution — at least as it’s been interpreted, and [the] Warren Court interpreted it in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties: [it] says what the states can’t do to you, says what the federal government can’t do to you, but it doesn’t say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf.

The United States of America — five percent of the world’s population — leads the world economically, militarily, scientifically, and culturally — and by a spectacular margin. Any one of these achievements, taken alone, would be cause for enormous pride. To dominate as we do in all four arenas has no historical precedent. That we have achieved so much in so many areas is due — due entirely — to the structure of our society as outlined in the Constitution of the United States.

The entire purpose of the Constitution was to limit government. That limitation of powers is what has unlocked in America the vast human potential available in any population.

Barack Obama sees that limiting of government not as a lynchpin but rather as a fatal flaw.

Read the whole thing. He’s on a tear:

That a man so clear in his understanding of the Constitution, and so opposed to the basic tenets it provides against tyranny and the abuse of power, can run for president of the United States is shameful enough.

Then he goes on to talk about the Media malpractice that has brought us to a place where it took a single individual, and the internet to break a bombshell of a story like this..

Hillbuzz offered this interesting tidbit late last night:

We have not had a single nasty comment by an Obama follower on this site since Drudge ran the gigantic headline about Obama’s socialist agenda, and audiotape proof of it breaking.

Whenever Obama is in trouble, these people clam up.

The worse something is for Obama, the quieter his followers get.

It’s how we gauge the impact of something around here.

Not a single Obamabot comment in the last hour. We’d usually have 30 of them in our spam filter in that hour.

NOT A SINGLE ONE.

Where did they all go?

UPDATE: Seriously.  Two hours now.  Not a single Obama Kool-Aid Gang comment. And these people are up all night attacking us, telling us how Obama will win, and making fun of Hillary Clinton supporters or saying vile things about Hillary herself.  They do this all night — but not tonight. They’ve done this nonstop since we started this blog back in February.  But not tonight.

Know when the last time they just got really, really quiet like this was?

When Jeremiah Wright became a household name.

Heh. See how the cockroaches scatter when the lights come on?

UPDATE III:

The left has begun spinning in earnest.

UPDATE IV:

Epic Spin FAIL: Claire McCaskill explains all: ‘redistribution of wealth’ means ‘tax cuts’.

UPDATE V:

More interesting dish over at Hillbuzz: This is just one of 3 shoes to drop? Obama campaign to respond with vicious smear about McCain beating his first wife – (same exact smear he used to knock out a primary opponent in Illinois)?

I think we may be in for a bumpy last week.

  1. This is Bill Ayers Marixst philosphy verbatim. Barack Obama’s admission how he intends to circumvent the U.S. Constitution and institute socialist redistribution of wealth. Be afraid. Very afraid.

    Like

  2. Sigh. Obama is referring to the redistribution of wealth that was necessary between the time slavery ended and the time the civil rights movement got into full swing. In other words, this is a theoretical discussion mostly centered around the policies enacted over 40 to 140 years ago. The running yellow commentary is completely misleading and outright wrong at times. It’s pretty hilarious that you are actually taking the yellow commentary as fact, when you can hear how off it is as you’re reading it. The best part of this Youtube clip is that the creator can’t even spell the words he or she is typing. (If your news source didn’t even take the time to use spell check on his Power Point production, he might be a little less than credible.)

    What you deluded McCain lovers don’t realize is that the wealth has been “redistributed” for years. It’s being taken away from future generations in the form of loans in order to fund a war based on lies. The Bush economy has spent money at a prolific rate, almost unrivaled in the history of the modern world. The debt is now 10.5 trillion dollars, people. That’s $35,000 dollars per head. Instead of taxing you, GW has simply run your credit card up to 35k without telling you. And guess what? There’s interest! YOUR CHILDREN WILL HAVE TO PAY THIS!

    http://www.brillig.com/debt_clock/

    You’re funding wars with your Social Security and your children’s tax money. Why are you so angry that a small percentage of very wealthy individuals might go back to paying the same tax rates that they were paying 8 years ago? Why are you so eager to fall on your swords so that Exxon Mobile can keep huge profits while you just spend a few hundred dollars a month filling up your tank for an entire summer?

    I’ve got to stop visiting these message boards. I must be as sick in the head as some of these Doomsday freaks I see up here. Please take the time to read facts instead of listening to lies and half truths spouted by people who can’t even spell at a 6th grade level.

  3. James W, you my friend are one of the clueless. You think Exxon mobile is making more profit than Google? Should we give Google a windfall profit tax? The idea of taking more money from a company who can create jobs to give it to someone who is struggling is a quick way to create many free loaders. The company won’t pay a dime of what is added to their taxes, you will. Do you want to pay more for everything you buy? If you think that paying more taxes with the sole purpose of giving it to poorer people is a good idea, then move out of this country, you are not wanted. If the goal is to raise tax to pay for government expenses and fund useful programs, then at least your getting closer to America as it is today. I would have no problem with obama if he wasn’t planning on literally giving it to poor people because he thinks they need more. This is the essence of marxist ideas!

    Apparently, you and Clue have never met. While I suspect that it is late your life for an introduction, I’d like to give it a try anyway.

    1. Why, praytell, was a redistribution of wealth necessary in the time between the Civil War and the time the civil rights movement got rolling?

    2. How do the statements “But, the [Warren] Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth, and of more basic issues such as political and economic justice in society.” and “It [the Warren Court] didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution, at least as its been interpreted and Warren Court interpreted in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties.” qualify as “a theoretical discussion mostly centered around the policies enacted over 40 to 140 years ago” and not as a criticism revealing a fundamental failure to understand the purpose and limitations of the Supreme Court?

  7. I don’t think what Obama says in that audio clip is Marxism, it’s social justice. What he’s saying is that the Supreme Court, when forcing desegregation, did nothing to help out the African Americans who, for years, had been disadvantaged and trodden upon. In his opinion, the Court should have done some redistributing of wealth to help Black Americans get on their feet so they could get out of the ghetto and truly be equal with Whites.

    You can say whatever you want about Obama being a socialist, but I really don’t think you can make that claim based on that audio clip. He’s speaking specifically about the civil rights movement and the issues surrounding that, not a general affinity toward Marxism. The whole thing’s being misinterpreted and blown entirely out of proportion.

    How does taking something from someone who earned it and giving it to someone who did not not qualify as Marxism, especially when done to establish “equality”? And why is it an appropriate conversation for a lawyer, who knows full well what the Court can and cannot do under its ennumerated powers? Desegregation gave African Americans the same chances everyone else had for years. Giving them someone else’s money doesn’t enhance or promote equality because something that is not earned is not appreciated.

    You can say whatever you want about Obama being a socialist, but I really don’t think you can make that claim based on that audio clip.

    Except that I read a more lengthy transcript of those remarks. Three different economic redistribution references left me sure of his beliefs on the matter.

    Try being a minority in this country and then tell me that social justice is the same as socialism. See how it feels to be a devalued member of society. You don’t realize the privileges you have just for being born the way you are. Have you no compassion or sympathy?

    Other minorities, the ones lacking race pimps like the Wrong Reverends Jackson and Sharptongue have managed to “overcome” their circumstances, and do not require preferences in hiring, admissions, and the like. Maybe if they shed the new masters who have determined to continually make them a victim and foster a sense of entitlement not present in any other minority group, then perhaps they wouldn’t have as much to bitch about.

    Wow. You’re a terrible person, I hope you know that. The amount of hatred and disrespect that flows out of you is truly astonishing. I really hope your children grow up to be more decent, respectful people.

    How dare you, you impudent little bully. You show up here, repeat the darling tripe your lefty professors have force-fed to you, and you dare to call someone who disagrees with your flawed conclusions a terrible person? The level of disrespect you just showed our hostess in her own house is unbelieveable. Only a fool, or a college student or someone possessing a similar mix of political naivity and active interest would say the things you have, react the was you did, and then insult the person with the wisdom to show you the error of your ways. Yes, there is a perpetual vicitm class in this country, and their masters have continually fed them the idea that they are entitled to everything they are given. And people like Obama want to open the spigots full-bore. It is madness, and it will be the death of our republic and nation, and people such as yourself who are the willing tools and useful idiots will carry that blood on your hands to the end of your days. Now go look up “shame”, and ponder the meaning of it for awhile, you snot-nosed punk.

    I wasn’t calling her a terrible person for disagreeing with me, I was calling her that because of her use of the term “victim class” to refer to minorities and her complete lack of compassion. I’m not asking her to agree with me, I’m just asking her to have a little bit of sympathy for her fellow human beings.
    How dare I accuse someone who disagrees with me of being a terrible person (which I didn’t)? Nicedeb does it all the time. That’s what her whole blog is about. We Democrats are all communist, anti-American baby-killers, according to her. Never mind that we, just like you folks, are doing what we can to try and make the country a better place. If our goals aren’t the same as yours (conservative, trickle-down economics and isolationism), that makes us terrible people. You wanna talk about bullies?

    No, you attacked her because you could not and did not mount a meaniful and cogent response to her insight on the “victim mentality”. The sad fact is that your comments here assume much. You assume that white = privledged. I hate to break this to you, but that just isn’t so. You assume a refusal to see things through the eyes of the victim class is somehow uncompassionate. Letting people continue in their dependence on their “own” leaders, such as the aforementioned Wrong Reverends, or even worse, contributing to their dependence by buying into the false belief that redistribution of wealth to those who did not earn it is somehow attaining a level of equality actually is the uncompassionate thing. I don’t want my fellow man relying on me for their daily necessities. They don’t either. It kills the soul.
    Your assumptions also fail because you assume that as conservatives, we couldn’t possibly know what poverty and ghettos are like. I can’t speak for Deb, but in my case, I can assure you that you are wrong. I grew up in the suburbs of Flint, Michigan. I went to university at the U of M’s campus in Flint. I have spent more time than you can imagine in the parts of Detroit that a skinny white kid has no business being in. Yes, I have seen it first hand, and long enough to form some opinions based on what I observed and by learning from the people there themselves. The “vicitm status mentality” is not a myth, and as a student at an inner-city campus, I saw how the system of lowered standards, victim mindset, and a belief in entitlement did that group a diservice, and ultimately, a diservice to society, because instead of turning out citizens ready to earn their positions in life, and improve society in so doing, we turned out people who believed that that they were “owed” something by society and pointed to their victim status to justify it. This is America, it doesn’t owe you a thing; you have to earn what you get.

    To sum it up, I really don’t doubt your motives, but experience has taught me that your approach will lead to nothing but failure.
