How ironic it is that America’s first (partially) black president is, in fact, the greatest enemy of the African-American community since the 1860s? What is even more ironic is the fact that this community, through its own lack of education (but most significantly through the deceit, lies, and manipulation of the Obama Leftists) remains virtually clueless that it is being oppressed in the extreme…and with its own acquiescence. At no time since the abolition of slavery has the black population been more enchained by the shackles of poverty, crime, hopelessness, or family breakdown than it is experiencing under the Marxist, nanny-state policies of the neo-Socialist that occupied the White House in January 2009.
The facts and statistics surrounding the racial participation in the myriad of “government assistance programs” are irrefutable. While there may be as many non-blacks on the social assistance rolls as there are blacks, a far, far higher percentage of African-Americans in the Nation are on such programs that any other race. So, while it can be argued that these points apply equally to all races, as the title indicates, the effects of the Obama policies are far more egregious on blacks than on the other races. Perhaps, though, the one aspect that brings the focus of this discussion to the effects on African-Americans is that, as in 2008, polls indicate that over 93% of blacks support Obama’s re-election. That would be analogous to the 1850′s plantation slaves fully supporting the slave master for “Man of the Year” awards. Wow, that would be weird. So why is this?
If you’ve ever been to a national park that is home to wild bears, you must have seen the signs posted that say “Do not feed the bears. Human feeding will cause the animals to forget how to fend for themselves and place them in danger”. So, this applies to wild bears, but not to supposedly more intelligent American citizens? In recent years, the United States has found itself at a true tipping point with respect to citizen dependency upon government. This, though, is a culmination of not years, but generations, of Pavlovian training to which the poor have been subjected. Beginning with LBJ’s 1960’s “Great Society” initiative which ushered in most of the currently active “government assistance” programs, three generations of the Nation’s poor have been duped into a deeper and more widespread state of poverty. It should be remembered that the Great Society was born not out of a sense of raising those in poverty but, ultra-cynically, to merely attract the minority vote across the land. Sadly, then, in the case of America’s dependency segment, the “Do not feed the bears” sign is some thirty years too late. In many cases, today’s assistance recipients have already “forgotten how to fend for themselves”. While this situation would have been very serious under any circumstance, the entrance onto the stage of Obama, all the Leftists in his administration, and his obvious (to anyone who has actually researched the man’s background) Marxist philosophies elevates the cause for concern from serious to dire.
