Obama in 2001: Redistribution of Wealth Interview

October 27, 2008


Wow!  I guess the MMM looked over this one as well.  Check out the audio of this interview – more socialist underpinnings of the One come to light.  Each day that passes, their partisan stripes become clearer, and the mainstream American is a bit closer to having had enough of them.  Obama advocating for the redistribution of wealth in 2001.

 “You know if you look at the victories and the failures of the Civil Rights movement and its litigation strategy in the Court, I think where it succeeded was to invest formal rights in previously dispossessed peoples so that I would now have the right to vote, I would now be able to sit at the lunch counter and order as long as I could pay for it I would be okay. But the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth and sort of more basic issues of political and economic justice in this society…. And one of the I think the tragedies of the Civil Rights movement was because the Civil Rights movement became so court focused I think that there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributive change and in some ways we still suffer from that.”
