Barack Obama Plays Race Card Against Whitey – Praises Rev. Wright in 2007 Speech

Drudge reported:
2007: ‘We don’t need to build more highways out in the suburbs. We should be investing in minority-owned businesses, in our neighborhoods’…

The Daily Caller released video tonight of Barack Obama lashing out at a racist federal government and praising his wacky mentor Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

In a video obtained exclusively by The Daily Caller, then-presidential candidate Barack Obama tells an audience of black ministers, including the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, that the U.S. government shortchanged Hurricane Katrina victims because of racism.

“The people down in New Orleans they don’t care about as much!” Obama shouts in the video, which was shot in June of 2007 at Hampton University in Virginia. By contrast, survivors of Sept. 11 and Hurricane Andrew received generous amounts of aid, Obama explains. The reason? Unlike residents of majority-black New Orleans, the federal government considers those victims “part of the American family.”

The racially charged and at times angry speech undermines Obama’s carefully-crafted image as a leader eager to build bridges between ethnic groups. For nearly 40 minutes, using an accent he almost never adopts in public, Obama describes a racist, zero-sum society, in which the white majority profits by exploiting black America. The mostly black audience shouts in agreement. The effect is closer to an Al Sharpton rally than a conventional campaign event.

Here’s a segment of the 40 minute speech posted at The Daily Caller.

Hannity ran segments of the speech tonight on his show.

    Meh. Have heard the same thing from a cadre of politicos/ activists/ preachers in the Detroit area for years now.

    Not sure this is going to make that much of difference.

  • Zachary Chandler

    What Obama said in 2007 is no where near as insane as what he has done to this country the last four years! Check out this hilarious YouTube clip to see what he has been up to the last four terrible years!

  • Kenny Solomon

    El Guapo could be caught on world-wide live television personally murdering hundreds of Jewish babies with a Kahnjar, while screaming ‘Tally-Ho Snackbar™ – nobody would care.

    Tool up.

    It’s coming.

  • David

    There is no point to any of this. Someone could obtain a video of Obama shooting 20 people and the mainstream media would ignore it

  • Bob

    i wish this were the smoking gun, but alas, it is a big yawn. Not going to change anyone’s mind. you need the college transcripts and/or the Kahlidi tape from the LA Times

  • bg


    and that’s supposed to what??

    aah, all of a sudden this makes quite a lot of sense to me.. :-(

    it will hopefully be made quite clear that Mitt Romney
    had absolutely nothing to so with this “shocker”.. /s/

    I found it. For whatever reason The Daily Caller put it on page 3.

    It’s not 40 minutes, but it’s 36:22 minutes, here it is.

    At the six minute mark in the video, he starts going into racial envy. His disdain for this country really comes out.

  • MikeO

    Folks, all the conservative talking heads are tweezing apart an old video of Obama. You know, I no longer care. The guy is a dangerous, incompetent imbecile and I don’t need to know it in 150 different ways; 60 is just fine. Deeds matter far more than words. I just need to figure out how to convince the ‘low information’ voter- more interested in watching ‘The Voice’ than anything political- to get off their butts and at least VOTE to save this country from this guy.
    This video won’t do that; but a dispassionate presentation of his failures will. They will use this video as a distraction from the discussion to work on widening the racial divide. Which drives the low-information independents, normally in our camp, to stay home. I don’t doubt for one minute the Obama camp fed out this video for this purpose. Bluntly, it would be grat of Romney to stand p and say; “I don’t care a nearly as much about what he has said as what he has done.”

    BE CAREFULL….I don’t think it helps us win by relitigating the disappointments of the 2008 campaign …. dredging up Rev. Wright in a big way when there are CURRENT issues not being covered. ….. I hope its just a move by Romney to show he’s not weak on the attack like McCain….However…

    I am also suspicious of the Tucker Carlsen / Ann Coulter tag team releasing this self serving news on the same week Coulter is peddling her racially provoking book ” Mugged “.

    They could be back door race baiting for the left by fanning issues that give the MSNBC crowd a dog wistle racism narrative they drool over to energize black voter enthusiasm. Romney is making gains …Why change the subject to RACE now ? …the day before the debate…? I don’t think we should bite and chew too hard on this one.

  • Fred

    It won’t make much of a difference. The weak kneed white moderates afraid to look racist will still vote for Obama. I have some of these types in my family. One of them,a cousin,said he disagrees with Obamacare,Obama’s spending,and especially what he did with welfare. He’s till voting for him. Why? Well,he says Obama is “good for the country”and a “good man”.

  • greenfairie

    More evidence how the media covered up for Obama in 2008. We all knew it but some fence sitter out there may not.

    And it also reminds the people that Obama’s just a big old phony.

  • mrt

    Of course he does.

    Heck, look no further than his campaign organization,
    ‘Obama for America’, aka OFA, pronounced o-fay:

    o·fay /ˈōˌfā/ Noun: offensive. An offensive term for a white person, used by black people.

    Or code-word?

    While it is interesting to finally see this man being vetted, it is old news. Anybody with half a brain already knows about him, and many of us, with in depth knowledge. The ones that are not informed, this new found vetting won’t matter to them anyway. This man has been the President for the past 4 years, that is what needs to be ‘vetted’, talked about and repeated over and over and over and over again until those out there that are not informed get the picture.

  • dwdude

    just make him talk about it on national t v…lead the debate questions right back at this sorry racist. sorry, jessie, black people are racist, it’s on videotape. where are you lately , back under your hi rise rock?

    thank you..

    what a rambling (also sounds drunk) story teller he is..

    Barry really needs to go back a lot further than that, like how did the
    people become so impoverished in the first place, as in what if Hurricane
    hadn’t hit, as was the newspapers headline the day before it did hit..

    he also has to know more whites died per capita than blacks..

    how does America’s MSM get away with all their constant
    lying, lies by omission, and outright propaganda?? *sigh*


  • GotFreedom

    We’ve said it before but it’s worth saying again. . .when you(Barack Hussein Obama) point a finger at us. . .you have 3 fingers pointing back at yourself. . .in other words, while you try to point the finger at us and claim that we are racist because we call you out on your background/policies/agenda. . .it is in fact you who has the problem with race (as evidenced by this video).

  • bigmike

    I suspect that THIS is what Obama is going to be like once he is out of The White House, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and Louis Farrakhan can ALL retire, their work is done.
