Obama Calls the United States a “Former Colony” During Victory Speech

Barack Obama called the United States a “former colony” during his victory speech on Tuesday.
CNS News reported:

In his re-election victory speech on Tuesday night, President Barack Obama referred to the United States as a singular “former colony,” when the United States was actually composed of 13 separate colonies prior to gaining independence from the British.

“Thank you so much. Tonight, more than 200 years after a former colony won the right to determine its own destiny, the task of perfecting our union moves forward,” said Obama, which was the first sentence of his remarks in Chicago, Ill.

    This is what happens when you elect a foreigner, a “world citizen”, to the presidency of the United States of America. Obama has proven over and over and over again that he has absolutely ZERO grasp of United States History – not even the number of states, never mind our early history.

    BTW, let me add that while our 13 original states were British, much of our land is rooted in the French and the Spanish.

    As always, stop and ask the question:

    The media would have pounced on his “idiocy” and eagerly set him straight.

Their going to bleed you dry it’s going to cost you money since he got elected get something back from them. Elections have consequences they didn’t have a problem when occupiers did it so turnabout is fair play. As the great Obama once said “do it for revenge”.

    Not really. I don’t think he’s a particularly good president, but I don’t think he’s an evil person out to destroy America either. My two favorite presidents in my lifetime are Reagan and Clinton. Those were times of peace and prosperity. Both should have been, and could have been, elected to a third term.

    #10,

    A record number of Americans are on Food Stamps.

    Obama took out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt by $6 Trillion dollars on his lonesome.

    Under Obama we’ve lost our Triple A Credit Rating.

    We’ve had at least 7.9% unemployment for 46 straight months.

    Close to 22 million Americans are out of work.

    Black unemployment is at 14.3%

    Hispanic unemployment is at 10%

    Youth unemployment is at 12%

    Our debt has reached 100% of our GDP.

    I can continue if you like.

    Are you sure America is doing just fine?

    Obama’s ‘Missing Link’

    Meeting Young Obama

    [Boss and Obama, however, had a starkly different view. They believed that the economic stresses of the Carter years meant revolution was still imminent. The election of Reagan was simply a minor set-back in terms of the coming revolution. As I recall, Obama repeatedly used the phrase “When the revolution comes….” In my mind, I remember thinking that Obama was blindly sticking to the simple Marxist theory that had characterized my own views while I was an undergraduate at Occidental College. “There’s going to be a revolution,” Obama said, “we need to be organized and grow the movement.” In Obama’s view, our role must be to educate others so that we might usher in more quickly this inevitable revolution.

    I know this may be implausible to some readers, but I distinctly remember Obama surprising me by bringing up Frantz Fanon and colonialism. He impressed me with his knowledge of these two topics, topics which were not among my strong points — or of overwhelming concern to me. Boss and Obama seemed to think their ideological purity was a persuasive argument in predicting that a coming revolution would end capitalism. While I felt I was doing them a favor by providing them with the latest research, I saw I was in danger of being cast as a reactionary who did not grasp the nuances of international Marxist theory.]

    Even Republicans Rejected Info About Obama’s Past

    [What would you do if you knew that the top Democrat
    running for president was lying about his past?

    That is the question I was faced with in 2008. I had met the young Barack Obama while he was a sophomore at Occidental College, and I knew that his commitment to socialism was deep, genuine, and longstanding. See my earlier article on American Thinker.

    I had been a leader of the Marxist students at Occidental College myself, starting in 1976 when I founded the precursor of the Democrat Socialist Alliance on campus. The young Obama I knew was a Marxist socialist who would have been quite comfortable with Communist party members like his Hawaii mentor Frank Marshall Davis, retired domestic terrorists like Bill Ayers, or active socialist politicians like Illinois State Senator Alice Palmer.]

    stayed with Mohammed Hasan Chandoo

    Yes. There has been a global economic crisis. But the US is doing better than most countries. We have handled things much better than others. The economy is coming back. Employment is improving. We’ll be out of this in a couple years. The future looks bright.

  • Mad Hatter

    That has nothing to do with Global Economic Crisis, that is a 100% reflection on Obama’s policies.

    Unemployment is not improving, it was 7.8% for September, then it went up to 7.9% for October, and those numbers are low compared to the real unemployment rate.

    Just because other countries are making an F on their Economic Grade, that doesn’t mean our grade of a D makes us good.

    Under Obama, the Labor Department no longer counts people that have stopped looking for work as unemployment, they just air brush those individuals from the totals.

    The U-6 rate is at 14.6%.

    Your answer, Monkey #17, leaves me even more perplexed. That is, if you’re being completely honest.

    Of course it does. Europe is in the crapper and they are one of our biggest trading partners. If they aren’t buying our goods and services, it negatively affects our economy. The unemployment rate was up to 10% not that long ago. Not sure what the U-6 rate was then. We didn’t go into a deppression, the recession is over.

    I don’t know what you want Obama to do. He’s kept taxes low, which is important in an economic downturn. I’d like to see some major infrastructure projects to put people to work. Money is so cheap right now, why not borrow at these ridiculously low rates and use it to overhaul our infrastructure? But that needs to be passed by Congress and that’s not going to happen.

    I’m sure you have great ideas, but those have to be passed by Congress as well. Obama is not a king.

    [Had Americans been able to stop obsessing over the color of Barack Obama’s skin and instead paid more attention to his cultural identity, maybe he would not be in the White House today. The key to understanding him lies with his identification with his father, and his adoption of a cultural and political mindset rooted in postcolonial Africa.]

    I don’t know that much about Mother Teresa or Mao. But I was alive during Clinton and Reagan presidencies and times were good. Reagan helped bring down the Soviet Union and turned the economy around. Clinton also turned the economy around and actually started paying off the national debt. Both had to deal with a Congress of the opposite party, but we’re able to cut the right deals (unlike Obama). Both were smart, optimistic and inspiring. What’s so perplexing?

    Obama Administration Facing Massive Federal Lawsuit

    [A lawsuit seeking the return of $43 trillion (with a “t”) and an audit o
    all the TARP programs by an independent receiver has been filed against
    senior members of the Obama Administration and the New York group
    known as the “Banksters”.

    [..]

    The Plaintiffs have established the location of the $43 trillion
    of laundered money in a criminal racketeering enterprise
    participated in by the following individuals:

    Eric Holder

    Tony West

    Kamala Harris

    Jon Corzine

    Robert Rubin

    Timothy Geitner

    Vikram Pandit

    Valerie Jarrett

    Anita Dunn

    Robert Bauer

    The lawsuit alleges that the Obama Administration actively borrowed
    money from these “Banksters” to fund his political campaign in this
    2012 Election and has not pursued any criminal charges against them.]

    Of course you can spend more money than you are bringing in. Anyone who has ever bought a house has done that. Interest rates are insanely cheap right now. We need to overhaul our infrastructure soon. Why not do it now? Money is very, very, very cheap and there are lots of idle hands we can put to work now. Why would you want to wait and do it when interest rates are much higher and unemployment is low?

    But ok, you don’t like my ideas. What do you want to do to get the economy improving at a faster pace? We can wait it out, which is basically what we are doing now, and things will eventually get better on their own.

  • Marsh626

    I don’t get it. Isn’t the Left opposed to White Christian European colonialism…? Now they’re pretending to be proud of our early history?

    Cut spending 10% across the board on all Government spending. The Government has enough money to work with, they have to learn to work with what they have, and not burden the tax payers with more unnecessary taxes.

    Lower the debt ceiling to 2004 levels, instead of raising it. The Politicians were sent to Washington to solve our financial problem, not make it worse.

    Bring fourth a balance budget and stick to it. That’s called discipline. That should help strengthen the dollar, or at least start to strengthen it.

    Cut taxes 10% on all companies, big, medium, or small.
    Reduce payroll taxes by 20% on all companies, big, medium, or small.

    The more money companies have, the more they can expand their payrolls, and increase opportunities for those who are unemployed.

    If they don’t hire, they’ll use their money to upgrade equipment, pay down their bills, or put their money towards capital improvement.

    Invite businesses from around the world to come and do business in the United States by offering them a tax incentive to bring their businesses here. The more plants they build, the more people they hire, the more of a tax incentive they’ll receive.

    Just like how the stores promote, the more you spend, the more you save, but in reverse with businesses.

    This doesn’t take into account all the secondary jobs and businesses that will be created around these businesses.

    That would be a good start.

    A few comments. When you say cut spending 10% across the board, would you cut payments to Social Security beneficiaries? Medicare payments? The military? That’s where the money is. Cutting gov spending in an economic downturn would lead to a recession and possibly a depression. Ask Wall Street what they think about drastic cuts to military (gov) spending, which are fast approaching. It will put people out of work and hurt the economy.

    It is not possible to lower the debt ceiling without defaulting on our obligations. That money has already been spent. If we don’t raise the debt ceiling, people and companies that have done business with us won’t get paid. That would be a crisis.

    Why do you want a stronger dollar now? That just raises the price of US goods and hurts our exports and makes China’s goods much cheaper. You really think that is a good idea right now?

    Cutting taxes could help some, but it will increase our debt.

    Foreign companies and domestic companies need more than tax incentives to build new plants. They need customers. But that’s our problem. The American consumer, which drives 60-70% of our economy, is deep in debt and not spending. Why build or expand a business when consumers are saving and paying down their debt instead of spending? Businesses are not running at full capacity now. Why would they expand or add employees? It’s a chicken and egg issue. Business aren’t hiring because they don’t have enough customers. People aren’t spending because they don’t have jobs and are deep in debt.

    Traditional macro economics calls for government to step in and spend in these situations. Build new roads to put idle people to work. Once people get back to work they start spending on clothes, restaurants, appliances…

    Sorry about double post. Not sure how that happened.

  • Mad Hatter

    Social Security and Medicare I would leave, and I should have been more specific. Military, yes, it gets cut 10%, and I don’t mean our troops, I mean the bureaucrats in the Pentagon. We have too many of them sitting around the Pentagon that has nothing to do with Military planning, strategy, or recruiting.

    In that 10% cut to the Military, it’s time for European countries that we have Military bases in, Germany, Britain, etc, to pay their fair share for our Military in their country. The cold war is over, and if they want our Military on their soil, it’s time for them to pay at least 50% of that cost. That would be a huge relief to the tax payers.

    If we can raise the debt ceiling, we can lower it, but lowering our out of control spending spree. If we can’t lower it, and only raise it, then we’ll be nothing more than a debtor nation that will only have debt continue to rise, and never lower.

    A strong dollar is important since there are countries around the world that are looking to dump the dollar and replace it with the Euro. If that happens, the dollar won’t be worth a dime.

    Cutting taxes allow the American people and companies, big, medium or small to keep more of what they earned. Our debt won’t increase since the money will be put back into the economy through either payroll expansion, capital improvement, or paying down bills. It will get back around into the economy through one of those avenues.

    Lowering taxes not only allows people to keep more of what they earn, but it also expands the tax base when businesses hire, which expands opportunities for the unemployed.

    With 22 million people out of work, those Foreign companies that would come here to do business, would have people lined up for those jobs, thus creating paying consumes.

    As would the secondary companies that would be created around these companies. That doesn’t include the construction jobs that would be created when new plants that would be popping up.

    Just look at the Toyota, Honda, and Hyundia plants that have been built. Good paying jobs, creating a lot of tax payers, creating a lot secondary jobs, creating a lot of tax revenue for the local economy, and state.

    The supply and demand of the new plants that would be brought in from other countries, would allow roads to be paved if needed. All of these companies/plants would also create competition. American companies would jump in and build here to keep up with the foreign companies since they don’t want to fall behind. They would also benefit to bring their plants back with tax incentives since they don’t have to worry about international transportation cost which is starting to get pricey.

    It’s a win, win for everyone involved.

    That wouldn’t be surprising at all if such a thing begins to be pushed. Look at that nanny-state turd Michael Bloomberg – the mayorship of NYC was previously limited to two terms, but the city council voted to extend it to three, enabling Bloomberg to run a third time. Apparently, there was a voter referendum in ’93 that imposed a two-term limit, and another one in ’96 that opposed what the council eventually ended up doing anyway.

    I am so glad President Obama won the reelection. We need an intelligent person who is not caught up in delusional religion. President Obama has lived all over the United States as well as the world and brings perspective to his role as a world leader. The US President is not just the leader of the United States, he is a leader amongst leaders and we do not need to be further embarrassed by backwards religious people representing us. We are a secular, scientific, technological nation attempting to maintain our values and improve upon them.
