2001 Marxist Obama Advocates Overthrow of Republic

With Karl Marx in tow, Barack Obama was interviewed on Chicago Public Radio WBEZ FM in 2001 about the "redistribution of wealth" a phrase and concept he clearly uses throughout the interview. His remarks to Joe the Plumber in the chance street meeting were not off-the-cuff or poorly fleshed out.

Listen to the interview unearthed just hours ago and presented by Naked Emperor News on You Tube:

The partial transcript below was purloined from Pamela Geller, Atlas Shrugs:

If you look at the victories and failures of the civil rights movement and its litigation strategy in the court, I think where it succeeded was to vest 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 and as long as I could pay for it I’d 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 to that extent as radical as people tried to characterize the Warren court, it wasn’t that radical. It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution, at least as it’s been interpreted, and the Warren court interpreted it in the same way that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties.

It says what the states can’t do to you, it says what the federal government can’t do to you, but it doesn’t say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf. And that hasn’t shifted.
[This is very a interesting and important passage. It clearly shows that Barack Obama understands the basic principle of the Constitution is that it is a "charter of negative liberties" upon the governments vis-a-vis the citizenry and he is fully aware that what he's proposing is in direct opposition the Founders framework. - IR]

One of the I think 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 redistributed change and in some ways we still suffer from that.
Maybe this is why Obama/Biden are so upset over the Barbara West interview of Joe Six Term Biden and her questioning the parallels between Karl Marx and Barack Obama. The Obama Thuggery cut off all reportorial privileges to the station afterwards.

"This cancellation is non-negotiable, and further opportunities for your station to interview with this campaign are unlikely, at best for the duration of the remaining days until the election," wrote Laura K. McGinnis, Central Florida communications director for the Obama campaign. -Orlando Sentinal.

Amy Procter, Bottom Line Up Front, has this partial transcript of the Marx question:

WEST: Aren’t you embarrassed by the blatant attempts to register phony voters by ACORN, an organization that Barack Obama has been tied to in the past?

Senator Obama now famously told Joe the Plumber he wanted to spread his wealth around. A Gallup Poll showed 84% of Americans prefer government focused on improving economic conditions and creating more jobs in the U.S. as opposed to taking steps to distribute wealth. Isn’t Senator Obama’s comment a potential crushing political blunder?

You may recognize this famous quote: “From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs.” That’s from Karl Marx. How is Senator Obama not being a Marxist if he intends to spread the wealth around?

BIDEN: Are you joking? Is this a joke?
By suggesting such a radical change in the Constitution of the United States of America, Barack Obama is proposing the overthrow of the Government and the Republic, a Republic that has stood for over 200 years while the Marxist and Communist governments have all failed or are in the process of failure.

Barack Obama is proposing, from his own mouth, to overthrow the Government of the United States from within and that is sedition. The actual attempt to do so is treason. The Presidential Oath of Office reads that the President will defend the Constitution from all enemies from within and without. How does Barack Hussein Obama propose to carry out that oath while overthrowing that same government at the same time?

We're on the same page, Indigo, although you went into more depth than I did. I showed the second video of the Florida tv station's interview and wound up the post with the question and answer: "Is Obama a Marxist? You betcha!" The "You Betcha" is a link that leads to your post. Great job!

I just cant believe that ANYONE would vote for someone who tells you to your face that he is going to take things away from you, and YOU WILL LIKE IT!

We are going to put you all under Government control, AND YOU WILL LIKE IT!

We are going to redistribute your wealth AND YOU WILL LIKE IT!

We are going to cut off funding for the Troops in the middle of 2 wars AND YOU WILL LIKE IT!


We cant afford to be run into the ground by Barack Hussein Obama, Nutty Nancy Pelosi, and Dingey Harry Reid!

VOTE: McCain/Palin

It is a scary time isn't it Indigo!

You did a great job with this info.

Indeed it is, dcat. Some days I have a hard time facing the day.

Unfortunately so few people will ever hear this tape, let alone understand how it illuminates the REAL Obama that the impact is negligible.

Obama has successfully co-opted the vast majority of the "news" media who will either ignore this tape altogether, or report on it briefly then print the press release from the Obama campaign calling this another "distraction."

Like the video of Obama at a Jew hating party with Khalid Rashidi, this will be swept under the rug.

More than that, Mike. So many of our fellow citizens have no idea why Marxism, Communism, a Socialism are dangerous. The experience most younger people have had with these philosopies are from history books.

The daily threat that you and I dealt with and the direct affects on the people under those systems is far away and long ago. Just reading the theories, each is very appealing. The practice is something far different to which millions of Communist victimized dead would attest if they were't dead.
