“Rich People Are For Non-Violence… They Don’t Want People Taking Their Stuff”
Via Patterico

Transcript via Patterico and Morgen:

The philosophy of nonviolence only makes sense if the powerful can be made to recognize themselves in the powerless. It only makes sense if the powerless can be made to recognize themselves in the powerful. You know, the principle of empathy gives broader meaning, by the way, to Dr. King’s philosophy of nonviolence. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but rich people are all for nonviolence. Why wouldn’t they be? They’ve got what they want. They want to make sure people don’t take their stuff. But the principle of empathy recognizes that there are more subtle forms of violence to which we are answerable. The spirit of empathy condemns not only the use of firehoses and attack dogs to keep people down but also accountants and tax loopholes to keep people down. I’m not saying that what Enron executives did to their employees is the moral equivalent of what Bull Connor did to black folks, but I’ll tell you what, the employees at Enron feel violated. When a company town sees its plant closing because some distant executives made some decision despite the wage concessions, despite the tax breaks, and they see their entire economy collapsing, they feel violence…

    If nothing else, the OBOZO tape establishes that OBOZO (like the goracle and shrillary rotten clinton) are BI-LINGUAL: they speak one way before an all-black crowd, and they speak another very different way when whitey is around — and by “speak” I don’t just mean a strained, phony accent, I mean the all important actual content of what is said. TWO-FACED is a term that applies to such people.

    And his divisive, resentful and demanding wealth-redistribution message does resonate with whole populations who will not work to earn their lot in life.

  • snap boy

    Obama should consider how violated the taxpayer feels when millions is spent on giving away free cellphones, on paying close to 50 czars and footing the cost of his and her airplanes for vacations in Hawaii or the Vineyard.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    Boy, the guy sure is into that class warfare stuff, ain’t he?

  • Ragspierre

    How many people who worked for car dealerships did Obama do violence on?

    How much violence has Obama done to the 23 million Americans who remain unemployed?

    Was it violent to slash the incomes of middle-class Americans?

    And the rampage will just get MUCH worse if we let this anti-American slug remain in office.

    What knuckle-headed “preacher” yielded his pulpit to this a__h___. It’s no wonder that the Church is headed to the world system with “leadership” (ahem) like this.

    “Rich People Are For Non-Violence… They Don’t Want People Taking Their Stuff”

    FINALLY – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr explained.

    He was just a rich guy, interested only in keeping his stuff away from other people.



    What a heck of a day—we saw your “mask” fall away
    And you can’t blame your own Media for your loss!
    Since we’ve seen the “real you”, the faithful you knew,
    Are now leaving to find a new “boss”

    Back then, you were feted and flattered
    “I am your new savior”, you cried!
    With teleprompter on, and smile firmly in place,
    Few had cause to believe that you lied.

    And those lies came so fast–you were sure they must last,
    After all, you had carefully planned,
    To subvert and destroy the Republic you loathed,
    Would be done in four years at your hand!

    We all started so well, on your “highway to hell”,
    You and yours set a record for fraud.
    That apology tour *seemed* a rousing success!
    But we’re watching OUR GUYS DYING abroad.

    Still, your lies kept improving, your policies moving,
    Us closer and closer to a crash.
    “Curb free speech”, “run on wind”; “we’ll let everyone in”,
    And our “seniors”?—sorry; just don’t have the cash!

    Since “the start of the end”, you must wonder again,
    “How in hell” did we “rubes” find your flaws?
    With your Media Whores, you should win all the wars!
    You finagled and mangled our laws!

    It took time BUT WE LEARNED that you never had earned,
    Even ONE THING you claimed to be true.
    (“But I sealed EVERY record” you whispered to friends),

    Your plan’s fallen apart, and you don’t have the heart,
    To “regroup”, “start again” or “revise”.
    When proofs came of your historic deceptions,
    You could’nt keep straight your OWN lies!

    You’re so horribly proud, you will NOT be allowed,
    To just claim “one mistake” and move on.
    You’re dismayed at the fury of the PEOPLE YOU DECEIVED;
    And you’re STAGGERED your opponent’s so strong!

    You will try to “play through”, till the voters tell you,
    That your adventure in GOLFING is done.
    Pack your things, leave our House, you despicable louse,
    And STOP saying that you were “THE WON”.

    Hey Obama, you dumbass, businesses have to make money in order to stay in business; something that you can’t understand because you haven’t passed one budget to date, so you can spend like a madman and have no measure in place for you to hold yourself to. Six bloody trillion, and where is it?

  • “They want to make sure people don’t take their stuff.” … What a MORON. I don’t know ANYBODY, rich, poor, black, white, etc… etc… who WANTS people to take their stuff!

  • Redwine

    I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but rich people are all for nonviolence. Why wouldn’t they be? They’ve got what they want. They want to make sure people don’t take their stuff.

    This means that his people are entitled to use violence to achieve their ends by any means necessary. No wonder he tries to cover his support for terrorists who come through our open borders and who attack Americans and our allies (e.g. the Fakestinians, AQ/MB/Hamas) around the world.

    There is evil inhabiting the White House and many Americans do not seem aware of it. Obama is dangerous but supreme communist, Valerie Jarrett is even more so.

    Seems Jarrett even has ties to the Presidential Debate Commission.

    Sure hope Americans wake up before Nov. How much more egregious background on Obama, his incompetence and his Muslim machinations will it take to even get people concerned that the country is going to hell, sooner than later?

    well at least we can conclude that Obama got an A in Derrick Bell’s class at Harvard. Someone should connect Obama’s words in these recent videos with the radical anti American, white hating teachings of old Dr Bell.

  • Marxists by any other name don’t believe in non-violence.

    History shows that wars are divided into two kinds, just and unjust. All wars that are progressive are just, and all wars that impede progress are unjust. We Communists oppose all unjust wars that impede progress, but we do not oppose progressive, just wars. Not only do we Communists not oppose just wars, we actively participate in them. As for unjust wars, World War I is an instance in which both sides fought for imperialist interests; therefore the Communists of the whole world hrmly opposed that war. The way to oppose a war of this kind is to do everything possible to prevent it before it breaks out and, once it breaks out, to oppose war with war, to oppose unjust war with just war, whenever possible.

    Every Communist must grasp the truth, “Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.”


    We Communists. Every Communist.

    “Only the means are different for the various socialist branches, but the principle is the same for all: the end justifies the means. Joseph Goebbels, propaganda minister of Hitler, is quoted in Germany with the statement “… it is not for nothing that we have chosen the name National Socialist German Workers Party (NSDAP), because at heart we are Communists.” Briefing his generals before the invasion of the Soviet Union in June of 1941, Hitler told them that he wanted to bring them “real socialism.” His declared intention was to destroy the Christian churches after victory.”

    Nazis are Communists

    Be sure to remember, Barack Obama is ordering companies NOT to tell employees that they are going to be laid off. He’s ordering those companies to wait until AFTER the election. AND he’s telling those companies that he will waive the monetary penalties that they would normally incur by doing this, he’s just going to wave a wand and make the bill go away, at the taxpayers’ expense.

    Obama, President of the United States, tells companies to HIDE the fact that their employees will soon be laid off, and incentivizes those companies to do this by paying the fines they would normally be charged for doing so.

    All to win an election.

    PART 6

  • bigL

    I read that 60 % of the US population was born after the Space Shuttle Cahllenger blew up, that is 1986. It is just impossible to educate, re-educate these morons. They have been taught that GW was a slave owning whitey and that TJ slept with slave girls and that the whites were empowered by the Constutution.
    All thes vids are just advertizing for Obama. He is giving the finger to the white power structure.He has said the Constitution was a doc of negative Liberties or something like that.
    And the conculsion is that he can show how it cam be walked over and shreded with no consequence. He is bypassing Congress and writing is own finance bills and the rest.
    So all this just entrenches in the minds of imbeciles to vote for him.
    Hopefully we have more constitutionalists to vote him out. And for the boo-hoo brigade that says we can’t deny the 1st black president his ‘rightful’ 2nd term, Obama can run again in 4, 8, or 12 yrs-whenever. Obama can have a split term.Like Grover Cleveland as Pres and B.J Clinton as Gov.

  • Sparty

    So he supports violence as part of a race/class war.

    When can we shoot back?

  • donh

    So basically Obama is calling Dr Martin Luther King an Uncle Tom Sell Out to rich white society folks. …He was their preferred grade of negro …non violant and no threat to their stuff.

  • Look-Out

    More video of Piven, J. Wright and Van Jones’ “recipe for not a common ground but a battleground”

  • dwdude

    they took private property by violence in the russian revolution…is that a veiled threat mr obama. you had better be ready to kill the larger part of this population if that is the case. but then you’d be killing the golden goose, wouldn’t it?

  • Austin Milbarge

    I wish these Marxist a**holes would stop talking the talk and put their ammo where their mouth is. They also need to convince their people to come and try to take from me….I’m ready!!

  • Look-Out

    Re #12 above — BHO didn’t become a Community Organizer to UNIFY us as a nation, but to join his COMRADES (sharing their thoughts in #12 link) to stir us into REVOLUTION. As President, I don’t see that he’s abandoned that goal. His comrades are all around him.

  • Daledog

    This vid is from the chapel at the U of Chicago. Good ‘ole U of C, always giving creeps a platform.

  • what?

    Sometimes I wonder if you guys understand english.

  • Mannie

    So, Zerobama is endorsing the use of violence? When do we start? {Passing out axe handles}

    But try and take the stuff from His bros in the Hood, and you’ll get a lesson in violence. And rightfully so.

  • lizzy84

    I’m glad this came out now. We’ve always known oBama was just a street hustling marxist divider. Privately, I would doubt he even considers that an insult. He’s only lasted this long because the media protects him like a crippled baby in a wheelchair, giving him full affirmative action treatment 24/7. But this tape refocuses our attention on how he’s always been about pitting one group against the other because now he’s the President of the United States and thus, it can’t be easily avoided. And oBama could be white, green or wouldn’t matter. He’s exactly what’s wrong for this Country, especially now when we need a leader to unite us more than ever in these uncertain times. So kudos to whoever put up this tape and to Carlson too. If they give some fence sitters the reason they need not to vote for oBama, they’ll have been worth their weight in gold.

  • Grandma Perkins

    A Nixon-level scandal a day! I can’t keep up.

  • Redwine

    Actually, a lot of us crackas here in ‘burbs are pretty well-armed. Non-violent – and armed.

    FU, Tyrant-in-Chief.

  • this is what the communists in the democratic party-media complex hid in 2008. so obama is a hateful bigot that doesn’t believe in private property. who would of thunk it? for someone that dislikes rich people so he sure like to party with them.

    ever notice how the college radicals from the 1960’s are now governing the country. they are worse at governing then the people they complained about.

  • This is the real Obama and what he really believes the one the Anksky media try to hide….Whitey should spread their wealth around that way everyone is on equal playing field…class welfare is all we have heard from this marxist community organizer, it doesn’t matter if whitey work harder and save, everyone should have a share in his wealth…..

  • Sandy

    Rich People are for non-violence because they don’t want people taking their stuff. Sounds like Obama is still a Community Organizer no matter what his job title is now. It also sounds like he’s prepping the nation for a race war.

  • SM-WI

    It’s about time these videos are coming out……..We lived in Illinoisssss when he was state and US senator… was well known that he was a far left winger. It’s the corrupt liberal media that’s kept all this stuff buried. But, with new media, they can’t cover for Barry anymore!

    re I’m ready

    Will you be ready at two in the morning when you are awakened by your door being broken down by two dozen SWAT team Army commando types dressed in black with heavy shotguns? Just saying. They will not come at you and me in an OK Corral way. More like Ruby Ridge with government snipers shooting your wife and dogs first.

  • mg4us

    and HE calls himself a Christian. .guess he forgot Christ’s lessons to forgive and turn the other cheek.

    The Bible is loaded with references to non-violence. .especially when coveting thy neighbors wife and goods.

    What a liar and low-life

    Just like his Mama.

  • Patty

    He’s rich, He hates the rich and loves class warfare, so what else is new, he has had that attitude then and now.

    He loves for the blacks to hold a grudge, he wants women to get abortion freely, he needs to pit every class and race against one another. Now, question, what president does the opposite job that a president should be doing? Obama. Radical and divisive.

    And what is so amazing is these tapes are saying what those of us knew all along about Obama. Radical Socialist for the advancement of himself.

  • Face it and call it exactly what it is, we are already a SOCIALIST Nation (Johnson made sure of that with his Great Society) with welfare and all the freebies to those who will not educate themself to move up. Obama wants to finish the “deal” and skip Marxism and move us to Communism. Is it any wonder he is waiting for re-election to to Putin, his idol.
    We must get back to the founders vision for this Country, and we are so removed from it
    I truly don’t know if it is possible. I pray and work for the Conservative message. Please get out there and work to halt this fast pace to Communism, work for this election!

  • xiphos

    Just had 2 of Obama’s ‘sons’ pounding on my front door. I mean pounding. Sounded like they were trying to break in. I yanked the door open and asked “what the hell do you want?’
    Answer ……… ‘We sort of like what you have here and would like to have stuff like this.’
    Yea, a 6 year old pickup truck and a 2 bedroom house. Must be rich beyond my wildest dreams.
    Told them both to get friggin jobs and then called my dog to the door. When they hit the street I called the police. It is going to get ugly folks.

    This speech is vicious, and crammed with race prejudice. It tends to confirm that not only was Barack Obama was a member of Jeremiah Wright’s congregation, but also that he believed Wright’s hateful lies.

  • Bill

    Pres.Obama meant what he said in 2002 about rich people wanting to keep their stuff. According to his 2002 tax return he and the Mrs. had adjusted gross income of
    $259,394 and made charitable contributions of $1050, meaning he gave away only 0.4% of his income. That’s hanging onto your stuff.
