Robin Hood: More Like…Obama From the ‘Hood

Posted by redsatellite on October 27, 2008

Let’s be clear: Barack Obama’s idea of spreading the wealth- is not new for him. NO. We learn today, from Drudge, he’s been kicking that SOCIALIST idea around since (at least) 2001.

Barack Obama on Chicago Public Radio WBEZ-FM, 2001: The 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 one of the, I think, tragedies of the civil rights movement was, um, because the civil rights movement became so court focused I think 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 coalition of powers through which you bring about redistributive change. In some ways we still suffer from that.

SUFFER?

Here’s a newsflash Barack. Stupid people suffer. Ignorant people suffer. That’s how it works. Education, hard work, and personal responsibility are rewarded. There is no better place to succeed, than right here in America. Why do you think immigrants are beating down the door to get in?

If you fail, it’s YOUR FAULT. Not mine, not my mother’s, not my father’s nor my grandparents. You are ‘entitled’ to pursue: life, liberty and happiness. You are NOT ENTITLED to pursue my money, my children’s money, nor anyone else’s. You and your merry band of ‘community organizers’ do not get to ‘redistribute’ my wealth.

Period. End of frickin’ Robin Hood story.
