Thanks to the new media’s ability to run around the old media’s protective wall of dishonesty, we now have further insight into the socialist plans for America that Barack Obama has always held.
Since they won’t write about this May 3, 1990 interview with Harvard student Barack Obama, we will. Here are some quotes from the Socialist- in- Chief that speak for themselves:
“Hopefully, more and more people will begin to feel their story is somehow part of this larger story of how we’re going to reshape America in a way that is less mean-spirited and more generous.”
“I mean, I really hope to be part of a transformation of this country. And the future of black people and of America generally? “It depends on how good I do my job..”
“I’m not interested in the suburbs; the suburbs bore me.”
“I lived in a country [Indonesia] where I saw extreme poverty at a very early age. Parts of my family in Kenya remain very poor. My grandmother still lives in a mud-walled house with no running water or electricity…That’s who I am, that’s where I come from, not always literally, but at least emotionally.”
“There’s certainly racism here. There are certain burdens that are placed, more emotionally at this point than concretely.”
“Professors may treat black students differently, sometimes by being, sort of, more dismissive, sometimes by being more, sort of, careful because they think, you know, they think that somehow we can’t cope in the classroom.”
“It’s critical at this stage for people who want to see genuine change to focus locally. And it is crucial that we figure out how to rebuild the core of leadership and institutions in these communities.”
“I’m interested in organizations, not movements, because movements dissipate and organizations don’t.”
“America suffered when the movements of the 1960s dissipated, he said. Those movements succeeded in raising doubts about harmful traditions of sexism and racism, but failed to offer a viable alternative.”
“It’s crucial that people don’t see my election [to head the Harvard Law Review] as somehow a symbol of progress in the broader sense, that we don’t sort of point to a Barack Obama any more than you point to a Bill Cosby or a Michael Jordan and say ‘Well, things are hunky dory.”
