How God-Awful… Obama Preaches Socialist BS to Graduating Students in Joplin

Haven’t they been through enough, Barack?
Their town was devastated by a massive tornado and now they’re forced to listen to Barack Obama push his socialist BS at graduation.

What a nightmare.

Barack Obama returned to Joplin, Missouri to push his socialist dogma to the class of ’12.
The Daily Caller reported:

President Barack Obama’s high school commencement speech in the tornado-stricken town of Joplin, Mo., pushed a sharply ideological message and included partisan jabs and a call for military-style community action during crises.

“You are from America. No matter how tough times get, you will be tougher,” he told the students and parents May 22. “The road has been hard. The day has been long. But we have tomorrow, so we march. We march together,” he said on the first anniversary of the deadly tornado strike.

The military imagery was entwined with stump-speech language that repeatedly contrasted the president’s progressive ideology of organized action against what he caricatured as the spiteful and selfish alternative of individualism.

“As you begin the next stage in your journey, you will encounter greed and selfishness; ignorance and cruelty.You will meet people who try to build themselves up by tearing others down; who believe looking after others is only for suckers,” he said.

“My deepest hope for all of you … [is that] you can serve as a reminder that we’re not meant to walk this road alone; that we’re not expected to face down adversity by ourselves,” he told his audience. “We’re stronger together than we are on our own.”

He just can’t help it. It’s who he is.

    Why did he even go there? A photo op to PRETEND he cares? He was absolutely NOWHERE to be found when Joplin was destroyed. It’s in the heartland, ya know and the people there probably “cling to their guns and religion.” Everything this Loser does is sickeningly political. Romney 2012

    Yuk!

    The only person enjoying an Obama event these days…….is Obama.

    Obama is beyond a mere Socialist, he is a full blown Marxist and if reelected will tear this nation apart. You can hear it in the way that he speaks about businesses. He and Putin are cut from the same cloth.

  • Teamansam

    So telling students that there strong and to care for others is socialism? I don’t see how that was a call for government to take control of the means of production (that is socialism).

    Hooray for the President, he is absolutely correct…..

    “As you begin the next stage in your journey, you will encounter greed and selfishness; ignorance and cruelty. … You will meet people who try to build themselves up by tearing others down; who believe looking after others is only for suckers,” he said.

    Yes, these ‘people’ are known as democrats

    Why was he even invited to speak? Or was this another instance where he asked to speak, as with Barnard?

  • iamsaved

    As he surveyed the surrounding destruction from last year’s tornado, did Obama blame Bush for another natural disaster?

    He probably would have been more effective if he’d gone to New Orleans and, 7 years later, bragged about how his administration finally cleaned the place up. The place is cleaned up isn’t it? If not, any bets on which city cleans up first? Will it be New Orleans or Joplin? Liberal bastion dependent on government versus a city with conservative values and where the people take care of themselves and their neighbors. That would have been a much better commencement topic and a real poignant display of how socialism really works.

    Obama has the gall to say this.
    He is all of this and worse.

    More psychological projection from the affirmative-action president.

    Did he let the valedictorian use his teleprompter?

    keithofboston #6: Exactly. What a remarkable confession by Obama. Not an intelligent soul thinks Obama looks after Jews, “bitter clingers,” bible thumpin’ Catholics who want to push babies on women who’d rather just get rid of the “burden,” etc. You can’t even call someone a bitter clinger with any intention of compassion; that’s the language of hate.

    Obama is like a Tornado. Leaves destruction on every path he walks.

  • clarityrising

    Look at the smile and stare as if to say, “Ah, there goes future soldiers in my army of jackboot socialists rooting out the evils of capitalism wherever it hides and securing the benign dictatorship that shall be run by me and my minions, because we know what is best.”

    Since the closure of dozens of coal plants and their huge impact on climate, why
    is there still violent weather?

    Perfect description of democrats.
