A new video of Jeremiah Wright has surfaced, showing Barack Obama's pastor of 20 years praising Marxism and discussing his ties to communists in El Salvador and Nicaragua and the Libyan government. Equally important, Wright is being introduced in the video by Robert W. McChesney, co-founder of Free Press, an organization which has come under scrutiny for its links to the Obama Administration and dedication to the transformation and control of the private media in the U.S.
In an article in the socialist Monthly Review, "Journalism, Democracy, and Class Struggle," McChesney declared, "Our job is to make media reform part of our broader struggle for democracy, social justice, and, dare we say it, socialism."
In the video, which captures Wright's appearance at a September 17, 2009, anniversary celebration of Monthly Review, Wright said that while the "corporate media" provide a "binary lens" of the world, in such terms as "communist versus Christian," Monthly Review offers what it calls "no-nonsense Marxism."
He added: "You dispel all the negative images we have been programmed to conjure up with just the mention of that word socialism or Marxism."
He called America "land of the greed and home of the slave."
You know, this hurts. It really hurts. But all the same I fail to see how the President could have known. I mean, it's not as though Wright openly advertised his extremist beliefs or anything...
Disavowal of the Pursuit of “Middleclassness.” Classic methodology on control of captives teaches that captors must be able to identify the “talented tenth” of those subjugated, especially those who show promise of providing the kind of leadership that might threaten the captor’s control.
Those so identified are separated from the rest of the people by:
1. Killing them off directly, and/or fostering a social system that encourages them to kill off one another.
2. Placing them in concentration camps, and/or structuring an economic environment that induces captive youth to fill the jails and prisons.
3. Seducing them into a socioeconomic class system which, while training them to earn more dollars, hypnotizes them into believing they are better than others and teaches them to think in terms of “we” and “they” instead of “us.”
4. So, while it is permissible to chase “middleclassness” with all our might, we must avoid the third separation method – the psychological entrapment of Black “middleclassness.” If we avoid this snare, we will also diminish our “voluntary” contributions to methods A and B. And more importantly, Black people no longer will be deprived of their birthright: the leadership, resourcefulness and example of their own talented persons.
Yes, this is depressing all right. I hope Barack's enemies don't descend to paranoid, guilt by association tactics. If the election in November taught us anything, it's that such despicable tactics are unthinkable in a civilized society.
Now that we are in this mess, I can only hope our Republic survives to the next election. Right now it is looking like a dead heat, Socialism or Republic. Come Tuesday, come on Tuesday, Tuesday we will start to take our country back from the socialists.
"A free press would have vetted Obama far more aggressively"
If we had a free press, or at least a fair press, you know what we'd be saying right now? "Madame President", because Hillary would have won the nomination and then probably been elected. Not that I'm a big fan of Hillary but that's how I see it.
Forget Wright and Ayres (well, actually, DON'T forget them but set them aside for a moment). If the press had simply given a fair accounting of Obama's record they would have noted that he had almost no substantive accomplishments. They would have said, "Gee, he seems smart and eloquent, but he hasn't done anything yet. He's not ready. Maybe next time."
Regarding ∅bama not being aware of the anti-American bile that Reverend Wright had spewed over the years, I am reminded of Sgt. Schultz from the TV show Hogan's Heroes: I know nuffink. I know nuffink!"
Wright praising Monthly Review, Billy Ayers's house being the kickoff point for ∅bama's political career, one of Anita Dunn's "favorite philosophers," the car czar who disparages capitalism and practically in the same breath quotes one of Anita Dunn's "favorite philosophers" about power and the barrel of a gun. No, this couldn't be related to the "author" who wrote about seeking out Marxists in college so he wouldn't appear to be a sellout.
