B.Hussein Obama on small-town PA: Clinging religion, guns, xenophobia

B. Hussein Obama's remarks at a San Francisco fundraiser Sunday


Full transcript:


"So, it depends on where you are, but I think it's fair to say that the places where we are going to have to do the most work are the places where people are most cynical about government. The people are mis-appre...they're misunderstanding why the demographics in our, in this contest have broken out as they are. Because everybody just ascribes it to 'white working-class don't wanna work -- don't wanna vote for the black guy.' That's...there were intimations of that in an article in the Sunday New York Times today - kind of implies that it's sort of a race thing.

Here's how it is: in a lot of these communities in big industrial states like Ohio and Pennsylvania, people have been beaten down so long. They feel so betrayed by government that when they hear a pitch that is premised on not being cynical about government, then a part of them just doesn't buy it. And when it's delivered by -- it's true that when it's delivered by a 46-year-old black man named Barack Obama, then that adds another layer of skepticism.

But -- so the questions you're most likely to get about me, 'Well, what is this guy going to do for me? What is the concrete thing?' What they wanna hear is so we'll give you talking points about what we're proposing -- to close tax loopholes, uh you know uh roll back the tax cuts for the top 1%, Obama's gonna give tax breaks to uh middle-class folks and we're gonna provide healthcare for every American.

But the truth is, is that, our challenge is to get people persuaded that we can make progress when there's not evidence of that in their daily lives. You go into some of these small towns in Pennsylvania, and like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.

Um, now these are in some communities, you know. I think what you'll find is, is that people of every background -- there are gonna be a mix of people, you can go in the toughest neighborhoods, you know working-class lunch-pail folks, you'll find Obama enthusiasts. And you can go into places where you think I'd be very strong and people will just be skeptical. The important thing is that you show up and you're doing what you're doing."

Wild Thing's comment.........

O.K. this guy totally creeps me out. This is what he really thinks too! He is a POS! This is arrogance of the highest form. I’m surprised he didn’t add the phrase “Typical white people.” at the end of his remarks.

For one thing it is small town America that has built this country, kept it strong and is the heart and soul of our Nation.

Obama hates the America we have, like all the leftists his love is of the America they intend to create after they tear this one down.
Isn't it obvious Obama hates religion? No one would place religion in that list of "negative" things unless they totally disrespect believers.

Same goes for daring to oppose illegal immigration, in Obama's mind. And in supporting the 2nd amendment.

Obama did this in his "race" speech as well - referring to perfectly wholesome things like anti-crime sentiment as somehow being bad things resulting from capitalism.

Add to this his view of "babies" as a punishment.

Obama holds bizarre left wing views through and through. His view of small town America itself is frightening. Decent people are "clinging" to religious belief because of capitalism.

Funny, Obama watched Rev Wright rant like a clown for twenty years, but that brand of religion never troubled him.
Obama views all mainstream traditional views as diseases to be eradicated.

Even Juan Williams in FNC channel a little while ago, maybe an hour or soe was talking about how stupid these comments were especially when coupled with the not wanting his daughters “punished with a baby” comments.

****** Please read Mark's comment in the post below this one, it is excellent and it comes from somoene that lives in PA.******

....Thanks Mark for the heads up about what he said.

He wouldn't be a liberal if he wasn't a classifying, stereotyping bigot. Progressivism is entirely - entirely - about the application of coercive power to create the society imagined by progressives.

To do that, you have to categorize and create fantastic, stubborn realities to justify the authoritarianism to come.

This Obama bullshit would embarrass a palm-reader.

This arrogant little putz wants to raise everybodies taxes. Well we just had our Taxes done and owe $3000 dollars. we make too much they told us. Well I retired in September. My wife is an RN the same profession that Michelle Obama said all people should go into. Fortunately she works for a Hospitol that pays her, ALMOST, what she is worth. So according to the government we make too much. So next year I will pay Income Tax on my Social Security. Welcome to socialism.

This grubby little dickweed doesn't think I am paying enough taxes. Well why the hell can't his people look for work like the rest of us.

I am sick and tired of hearing about Rich White People and Typical White People. My people came from Ireland and two wound up in the Union Army almost as soon as they got off the boat.

I am sorry there were slaves but I had nothing to do with it and neither did the rest of us. And I don't feel guilty for slavery, the majority of White People paid in blood to free the slaves and this is the thanks they get. We get an 'You owe me attitude' to that I say Bullshit, I don't owe them nothing.

Let a liberal talk long enough, even one educated at Harvard, and you realize how stupid they are.

"...working class lunch pail folks"? Where does this obsolete, vague, prejudicial socialist crap come from? The chatter of the swollen elites in the student and faculty lounges.

No one has carried a lunch pail since 1946, and Obama has never seen one, much less can he perceive the aspirations or ambitions or trials of the "working class". He's never involved himself with them either, unless it was to shake a calloused hand reaching for an entitlement.

Obama's the kind of buffoon who thinks that if he buys a new stove that uses half the fuel of his old one, two new stoves will heat his house for nothing. He misses the obvious every time. this case, the obvious is the concrete realities of life and that populations are composed of complicated, widely varying individuals. No liberal can afford to think in these terms. When they do, everything they believe turns to shit. Liberalism is the ultimate simplification of real complexity, and it's the intellectual homeland of the stupid and the power hungry.

Yeah, Obama. We "lunch pail folks" are just a bunch of tobacco spittin', Jesus worshipin', gun totin', wetback hatin', Nascar lovin' retards. Jackass!

"Progressivism is entirely - entirely - about the application of coercive power to create the society imagined by progressives."

That is so good for an explanation, thank you.

Mark, I agree and I am sick of it too.

I even want to tell him off at his site in one of his stupid blogs, but I can't bring myself to register just to make one post telling him off.
