Biden finally got questioned hard and had to flat-out lie about his own words (as I quoted below) and about his and Obama's intentions...unless perhaps he really doesn't understand himself what he's into. I'm going to embed that video because it's pretty good, at least for showing the obvious lies, but first I am curious. Now Obama has been pretty open from the beginning of his political career that he was a radical deconstructionist, Alinski-ite, Chicago socialist, friend to other radicals like himself and pontificating on his radicalism. It's the thing open socialist bloggers like most about him; that he is indeed a full-out socialist, a lot farther to the left than Hillary is willing to openly be. Than almost any of them are willing to be, really. I didn't realize the extent to which he and his team, once you finally call it what it is, were trying to deny these things. Why deny it? It's why people like you. At least, the hard left, and who the hell else would vote for this guy? How is it that people are missing this fact so badly, that they get excited when this old audio surfaces showing exactly what Obama believes...and surprise, it's literally scrapping the Constitution and redistributing via force/law. I mean...he's BEEN GOING AROUND PROMISING TO DO JUST THAT so why the hell would this audio be some kind of smoking gun? Because he openly says he wants to trash the constitution and as president he'll have to make a false promise to execute and defend it? Does he think anyone cares? His supporters will not be impressed; they believe the constitution is passe, bullshit, and even if it wasn't that Bush had made it into toilet paper long ago (yes, they think it started with him lol - not the Great Society or even Lincoln, but I digress; that's just the current media brainwashing of everything being Bush's fault.)
So I'm going to embed this audio and parse it a little, but for crying out loud, how can this possibly be a coup or a surprise when this is what he's been promising to do and who he has been all along? Enjoy:
OBAMA: If you look at the victories and failures of the civil rights movement and its litigation strategy in the court, I think where it succeeded was to invest formal rights in previously dispossessed peoples so that, uh, I would now have the right to vote, I would now be able to sit at the lunch counter and order and -- and as long as I could pay for it I'd be okay. But the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth and sort of more basic issues of political and economic justice in this society. 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 has been interpreted -- and 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. And that hasn't shifted, and one of the tragedies of the civil rights movement was because the civil rights movement became so court-focused, uh, I think that there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributive change. And, uh, in some ways we still suffer from that.
Yes, that's EXACTLY what the constitution is, Mr. Constitutional "Scholar." It is first a list of what the scope and sphere of the government is, and then the bill of rights is a SPECIFIC and EXPLICIT list of what the government MUST NEVER DO TO US. The government is not a body that is intended to DO THINGS TO US - it is supposed to stay out of the way so we can reserve the full liberty and the full rights that human beings are endowed with by nature and nature's God. That's what it is. Or did you miss the Ninth Amendment completely? The constitution does indeed spell out what they may do in order to engender liberty - the distribution of powers, checks and balances, promoting free trade between the various sovereign states by minting money and looking after interstate travel. It was not put in place to do other things TO us - the fact that you look at it as such is frightening to anyone with belief in their own rights and sovereignty as individuals. The fact that you want to so irresponsibly sweep aside checks and balances in order to promote a radical, from-the-roots restructuring of what society IS and throw out our liberty in the process, was an obvious fact - I'm not sure why you're trying to hide it now, but it won't work. And now you're trying to deny it not by denying it, but by saying "Well, we're not going to have TIME to make all these lurches to the left that John McCain is saying we're going to do." You WON'T HAVE TIME? Are you kidding me? THAT'S your excuse for openly wanting to throw out the constitutional protections we've had for 200 years - don't worry, we WANT to but we won't really have TIME for all that anyway, so no need to fuss and fret; we just want to take care of you." Thanks, but NO THANKS, sir.
Of course Biden is still just denying it outright, which is kind of funny, but my god, how is it anyone wants these radical deconstructionists in the positions of power that are sworn to uphold those very constructions??? Because it feels good? Because you can assuage your liberal guilt, or think you're doing people of color some imaginary good by putting the constitution in the shredder and spreading the wealth?
Then he goes onstage with his God-reverb microphone/sound system and promises, in his deal-sealer, that MCCAIN calls this redistribution "socialism" and they call it "opportunity", and that that's HOW WE'VE ALWAYS GROWN THE ECONOMY - FROM THE BOTTOM UP? Not by fiat, sir. Never. Ever. It does indeed originally grow from the ground up - by people who start out with nothing and MAKE something of value for themselves and their communities, and it progresses from there so long as government stays out of the way. But no sir, it does NOT and NEVER HAS grown from government taking that money at the point of a gun, through theft, and distribution to those who currently have less. It never, never has grown that way in the slightest. All that has ever done is cause ruin for everyone. And I think you know that, Mr. Alinski-disciple. (I would like to note, read Alinski sometime if you wonder what that means - read about how community organizers must never have a static notion of "truth" - that truth is relative, and it changes all the time, and the idea is to destroy what has been built and remake society a la Stalin and every other radical from Che to Mussolini to Adolph.) And by the way, McCain doesn't have to call it anything - THAT'S WHAT IT IS. Socialism HAS A DEFINITION, SIR - and everything you are fighting for and promising FITS THE DEFINITION OF SOCIALISM. I realize a lot of people now believe that's a good thing, but with all due respect, they're morons. They have never lived through really hard times and they don't have a clue the kind of ruin you are promising for us all, or what liberty they will forfeit to get there. It's infuriating.
Well, might as well see Biden lying through his teeth (or just being incredibly stupid - neither is any good) and a very surprising interview...in fact, it sure took him by surprise; Dems are not used to being asked tough questions by the media, and he finally says he can't believe the questions...but they're all legitimate. That's why he has to lie (or be incredibly stupid - still don't know which for sure.)
