We also know that a subtext of “our work is still not done” is “whites are still racist”. And if he’s not saying that, why does he make no effort to clarify the point?
Slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. would recognize many of the travails the nation is confronting nearly 50 years after his “I Have A Dream” speech, President Barack Obama said Sunday, declaring that “our work, Dr. King’s work, is not yet complete.” – In other words, whites are still racists and blacks must still get preferential treatment.
His voice soaring, “As tough as times may be, I know we will overcome,” Obama said at a rousing dedication ceremony for a new memorial to King on the National Mall. – Obama’s infamous narcissism. He’s really talking about himself and the fact that all polls indicate he won’t get re-elected, here, and that’s why his voice is “soaring”.
Under pressure from black leaders to more actively confront black poverty and joblessness, the challenge for the nation’s first black president in his remarks Sunday included paying tribute to King while acknowledging that King’s work, under Obama’s watch, remains unfinished. – Bingo. Like I said, message: whites are still racists and blacks must still get preferential treatment.
“There are neighborhoods with underfunded schools and broken down slums, inadequate health care .?.?.violence. Our work is not done.” - Again, he’s saying blacks still need preferential treatment to the tune of free Federal money, and of course, he’s not gonna miss a political opportunity to sell Obamacare, which he did with his claim of “inadequate health care”.
“And just as we draw strength from Dr. King’s struggles, so must we draw inspiration from his constant insistence on the oneness of man; the belief in his words that “we are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny.” – Pure Communist rhetoric. “The oneness of man…network of mutuality..”, with that, he’s preaching the collective, which is the communist ideal. He’s letting us know he’s not done with his communist mission, that he’s not going to change his horse mid-stream for polls or anything else, that he’s a true revolutionary.
“To say that we are bound together as one people, and must constantly strive to see ourselves in one another, is not to argue for a false unity that papers over our differences and ratifies an unjust status quo. As was true 50 years ago, as has been true throughout human history, those with power and privilege will often decry any call for change as “divisive.” They’ll say any challenge to the existing arrangements are unwise and destabilizing. Dr. King understood that peace without justice was no peace at all.” – Again, pure Communist and political rhetoric, and a call to violence which he and his cronies are currently instigating with the “Occupy” movement.
“If he were alive today, I believe he would remind us that the unemployed worker can rightly challenge the excesses of Wall Street…” – Again, Marxist revolutionary rhetoric, and a full promotion of the “Occupy” movement. Yes, he literally used this speech to sell the “Occupy” movement.
“It was that insistence, that belief that God resides in each of us, from the high to the low, in the oppressor and the oppressed, that convinced him that people and systems could change.” - Again, a call for Marxist revolution, which is why he included the word “systems”.
“We forget now, but during his life, Dr. King wasn’t always considered a unifying figure. He was even attacked by his own people, by those who felt he was going too fast or those who felt he was going too slow.” – Again, the narcissism; he’s talking about himself.
“And so, as we think about all the work that we must do…making sure that our health care system is affordable and accessible to all, and that our economic system is one in which everybody gets a fair shake.. let us not be trapped by what is. (Applause.) We can’t be discouraged by what is. We’ve got to keep pushing for what ought to be, the America we ought to leave to our children…” - Again, the call for Marxist revolution, a call and promise to “fundamentally transform America”, as he has said, into a Marxist utopia.
There’s more, but I think this suffices to make clear what the real point of Obama’s speech was today.
