Nuts. The Wackadoodle Professor Strikes Again: Obama Says "Mexicans" Were Here Long Before the United States Was an Idea (Video)

The Far Left Wackadoodle Professor Strikes Again–

Ken Pittman passed this on.
Barack Obama told the Hispanic Caucus in his speech that “Mexicans” were here in America long before the United States was an idea.

Wrong. Here’s the quote:

Let me close by saying this. Long before America was even an idea, this land of plenty was home to many peoples. The British and French, the Dutch and Spanish, to Mexicans, to countless Indian tribes. We all shared the same land.

Sorry Barack. Mexico first became a state independent of Spain in 1821.

Does anyone proof read this garbage before he goes public with it?

    He is an alien. He is not one of us.

    It is not inherently morally wrong to be an “alien”, to choose not to be an American, in thought and spririt. One is allowed, as one is allowed many other things as well.

    One just has no frikkin’ business being President of the United States in such a case, that’s all.

    If you control history*, you control everything.

    *It turns out you don’t really need to control history; you just have to be able to convince enough people to elect you that a false history is true.

    No, they don’t. I’ve seen other sloppy mistakes, and it’s obvious no one in the WH cares if the speeches are factual or not. The speeches are meant to advance an agenda.

    Some posts from David Horowitz last year on Alinsky tactics and the end justifying any means.

    Until conservatives begin to understand exactly what drives radicals and how dishonest they are — dishonest in the their core — it is going to be very hard to defend the system that is under attack. For radicals the noble end — creating a new heaven on earth — justifies any means.

    No, we did NOT all “share the same land” – the idea is ludicrous. To assert that we did is to utterly lie about history. Tell the Cherokee who were forced to walk to Oklahoma along the Trail of Tears that they all “shared the same land” with their Georgian neighbors. And that is just one incident.

    The very idea that the French and the English “shared the same land” is absolutely ridiculous. The French & English fought over Vermont and Upstate New York and Ohio for 200 years. The ONLY thing that stopped the bloodshed was the French Revolution.

    A little American History 101 should be required of a president.

    If that’s his opinion, who are we to disagree?

    Here’s another one. Truth and ethics mean nothing to these people:

    Means and Ends

    …Alinsky devotes an entire chapter to the problem of “Means and Ends” — of how a radical can justify breaking the moral order in order to achieve radical ends (pp. 24 et seq). In his handling, there are 11 rules for radicals to explain how radical ends justify radical means. The chapter is explicitly an effort to answer those liberals who refuse to join the radical cause saying “I agree with your ends but not your means.”

    Alinsky begins the chapter by telling us that the very question “does the end justify the means” as stated is “meaningless.” The real question is “does this particularparticular means?”

    …We begin with Alinsky’s introduction: “Whenever we think about social change, the question of means and ends arises. The man of action views the issue of means and ends in pragmatic and strategic terms. He has no other problem.” Translation: He is not going to worry about the legality or morality of his actions, only their practical consequences.

    More proof that we have too many idiots in public office.

    Why single out Mexico and Mexicans? The whole statement is ludicrous.

    As with economics, the teleprompter is ignorant about history.

  • Patman

    Who needs proof when you’re speaking off teleprompter…

    Mexican is a NATIONALITY that only exists after the formation of the nation of Mexico. This is a fundamental problem with this administration’s understanding — the census was full of questions about “race” but probably half or more of the options for “race” were actually NATIONALITIES.

    No one denies that people were here before Europeans arrived. They came over the land bridge from Asia, we get it, we accept it. The French, Dutch, British, Spanish didn’t share land, though… they drew boundaries on the maps showing their different colonies, and fought over them, and they changed hands, but everyone wasn’t living in peace and harmony on a boundary-less map, which is what Obama’s goal is. “Imagine there’s no countries…” and Obama as the chief to rule them all. He’s already been offered the job of ruling all Muslims worldwide!

    A product of revisionist history. Congrats to our teachers and universities.

    Who needs proof when you’re speaking off teleprompter…

    I can just see it now; O gets challenged while making a speech and he turns his teleprompter to the audience and points out, “See. It says so right there.”

  • Mrgoodwench

    Ever notice that when illegal mexicans march for amnesty , they carry a sign
    ” We didn’t cross the border,
    the border crossed us ”

    Its the same line of thinking….all illegal aliens think alike

  • Kevin P

    Does he also subscribe to the looney idea that “Africans could fly before white men killed them”?

    Seriously – that was taught in some schools during “Black History Month”.

  • Doggy

    When you see a wealthy, well-educated Mexican, you’re usually looking at someone of 100% European blood. The Spanish still party in Mexico like it’s 1499. They still live apart from, and lord over, the native people and don’t consider their poverty a problem: peasants are peasants, after all.

    Here in the States, we’re supposed to feel guilty about how WE treat Mexicans? The ones who should feel guilty, who have caused this situation where their “subjects” have to sneak into another country to make a living, are the aristocracy of Mexico.

    But you get no anti-American mileage out of that, so it’s ignored. Ignored so much that even the President doesn’t know the basic historical facts.

  • John Fembup

    I fergit – were the Incas Mexicans?

  • John Fembup

    Trick question,

    No, it was the Aztecs. It was the Aztecs who were Mexicans. Right Barack?
