What William Ayers Saw in Barack Obama

with one comment

Welcome Hillary Supporters!

As I have noted previously on this site, the real revolutionary left in this country learned in the 1960s that it was never going to achieve the violent revolution it so desperately sought. This country was too successful in raising people out of poverty, and creating a massive middle class, to fall for the mindless Marxist rhetoric these over educated, muddle headed, wannabe elitists had swallowed whole cloth. The leaders of that movement simply decided to change tactics, and became “community organizers” and “educators” with the intent of gaining power through faux concern for consumer issues.

William Ayers, Saul Alinsky and their ilk knew they would never be acceptable to the American voting public, because they had too clearly aired their beliefs, and in the case of Ayers actually engaged in violence to try to start the revolution. What were they to do? Once they had their political organizations in place, who could they elect? They were already taking over the Democratic Party beginning in 1968, but how could they reach that massive middle class where most of the votes are?

So began their search for candidates who shared their views, but who would be acceptable to the American public. It is well known that Hillary Clinton was a protege of Saul Alinsky, and William Ayers similarly took Barack Obama under his wing. Alinsky and Ayers and other radical left leaders knew what they wanted (power) and how they wanted to get it (political organizing), but they needed a smiling face for their radical socialist movement.

Enter the moderate appearing, but radically conditioned candidates. Hillary Clinton was personally responsible for almost single handedly foisting socialized medicine on this country, and she was only the wife of the president then. Bill Clinton was never a proper tool of the hard left, because he was more interested in personal power than power for the movement. Hillary on the other hand was a committed movement leftist who learned the benefits of pragmatism from seeing Bill’s success. While this has been a key to her success, it also is what sealed her doom in the primaries just past.

She was the perfect candidate for the new revolution. A woman, white, acceptable to the middle class, a history of winning a hotly contested election in a large state: she knew how to talk moderation while pushing radical policies. Hillary had a serious flaw though, and that flaw lead directly to the left’s adoption of Obama as their candidate. Hillary learned from Bill that once you gained power, you didn’t need all those long haired leftists who helped you get there. Even if Hillary had won the election, she would never have given actual personal power to the Ayers, Dohrns and ACORNs of the movement. They would have had influence, but no real power.

Then (as “Father” Fleger said) “along comes Barack.” Ayers and the movement took Obama under their wing at least as early as 1995. He was the leftists’ dream candidate. By his own description, he was a young impressionable man, without even a sense of his own identity. Well spoken (as long as he has memorized what he has to say), pleasant demeanor, and a blank slate; he soaked up their radicalism like a sponge.

But why did the movement choose an inexperienced Obama so clearly over one of their own who had proven herself under fire? For these reasons: Hillary let her desire to socialize our economy be known in the early 90s; Obama has almost no real public record of his radical beliefs. Hillary really gained power through Bill, and so had no direct debt to the movement for her rise to power; Obama was nothing until Ayers and Jeremiah Wright took him in hand, made him part of the Daley political machine in Chicago, and brought him to the point where he is the favorite to become president of the United States. Hillary almost succeeded in establishing socialized medicine and has been an effective (liberal) senator, she need take a back seat to no one in the movement; Obama has accomplished nothing of substance in his entire career, and so needs the movement in a way she never would. ACORN has far exceeded its previous efforts to steal votes for Obama, and Ayers may even have even co-written Obama’s first book for him. He owes them – big time.

Moreover, Hillary’s involvement in movement politics is in her past. Her work for Alinsky was decades ago and her and Bill’s control over the Democratic Party freed her from worrying about the need for placating the movement. To the contrary, Obama is just out of his “community organizing” training period. Hillary has had everything about her past scrutinized and publicized, she is scandal proof. Obama is subject to many on the left who could destroy him by simply leaking the right tape. One wonders if the Khalidi tape released to the L. A. Times, but censored from public view, may not really be a subtle signal to Obama of this vulnerability.

Hillary, by her earlier politics and lust for personal power is damaged goods to the hard left. She also knows that for all their talk, the Ayers and Alinskys of the world are just as much motivated by that same lust for personal power. Socialists always are. Just as their expressed concern for the public good disguises the movement’s search for pure power, so too the leaders’ claim to want empowerment of their organizations simply disguises their unending quest for their own personal power.

Obama is still young and inexperienced enough to believe the grad school pap that Ayers, Khalidi and others fed him about the movement. He is well spoken and glib enough to come across as knowledgeable, without really having the kind of personal drive and resolve to actually change things on his own. They do not have to worry about Obama going off the reservation like Hillary did in supporting the war in Iraq.

Much that is written about Obama takes on the airs of the conspiracy lunacy that has been so prevalent in recent years. But Alinsky’s bible of the left, Rules for Radicals, makes it clear that while organization is central to the movement, concealment of the purposes of that organization is even more so. We are witnessing the results of decades of “community organizing” by the hard left in this country as they try to bring their revolution to fruition.

The hard left in this country chose Obama over the more experienced Hillary because the movement could not control her. Obama they can, and will. There is more at stake in this election than the public has been allowed to know.

Does It Matter That Obama Lacks Respect For Senate Position?

with 5 comments

Not only could Barack Obama not make a decision, or want votes with his real beliefs on record, or write any legislation, he didn’t respect his constituents enough to attend Senate committee meetings on time. This man is nothing but promises, taking your money with no return for your hard work. What kind of employee would keep his job if he kept showing up late and not producing?

H/T to Dave and Kk

Barack Obama is the only person I know of that has not accomplished one thing in his life except get elected to office (by throwing everyone off the ballot), yet has written two autobiographies (but ghost written by terrorist Bill Ayers). Not only does his website resume’ lie about Obama being the first African-American editor (he is the third), he never published anything as the editor of the Harvard Law Review when he attended Harvard.

This man is not qualified to be in the dog catcher’s position nevermind President of the United States.

Pelosi Says Don’t Fear Democrat Congress

leave a comment »

Nancy Pelosi, the brain behind the Congress Cafeteria Environmental Straws, has explained a little more about her policies and what more Democrats in Congress will mean.

“Elect us, hold us accountable, and make a judgment and then go from there. But I do tell you that if the Democrats win, and have substantial majorities, Congress of the United States will be more bipartisan,” said Pelosi.

Hey House Speaker? Democrats have been the majority for nearly two years and have accomplished NOTHING but investigations and committees and partisanship!

French President Thinks Obama Is An Empty Suit

So the liberals think the world will respect the United States if Barack Obama is elected? Think again. Global governments are not stupid regarding the socialist Obama’s lack of experience and agenda. I bet they are keeping mum while keeping their fingers crossed that American voters come to their senses and keep the world safe by electing John McCain. Europe has too much to lose, economically and with global security, if Obama succeeds with his ‘Change The World.’ Europe should be reminded of what the last “Change” leader, Adolf Hitler gave them.

Why City Folk Shouldn’t Move To The Country

H/T to Bob for making me laugh in these stressful days… even if it is a prank.
Here is another lost cat found with different photos from the Room5ians and Mr Woody, their teacher. Mr. Woody – love your blog design! New Zealand is a great country – some of the nicest people I know live in New Zealand. I’m glad you’re a teacher. I agree with you on the kids and not the administration!
