Radical-in-Chief – The 10 Wake-Up Calls We All Missed (Thanks, Media!)
Posted on December 19 2010 2:00 pm
Modern socialists are some of the best liars in the world. They lie about their true motives:
“The interesting point here is the tension between what socialist-leaning organizations really wanted (anti-corporate campaigns) and what they sometimes had to agree to in response to their membership’s interests (fighting the mayor’s plan to construct an expressway). While the Weathermen were in hiding, hatching their absurdly unrealistic terror plans, the Booths and their fellow radicals were learning how to lead in the real world. In exchange for patient willingness to pursue popular projects of less-than-ultimate interest to themselves, socialist organizers could occasionally harness the power of the ‘masses’ to actions with genuinely radical potential – like an attack on the banking system.”
They also lie about specifics when it suits their purposes. For instance, Obama lied about his affiliation with ACORN (the granddaddy of community organizing groups). There is substantial evidence for this claim by Kurtz, including a video of Obama when he was attempting to obtain ACORN’s endorsement. In the video, the future president is heard saying, “I’ve been always a partner with ACORN… I’ve been fighting with ACORN, alongside ACORN, on the issues you are about my entire career.” Kurtz goes on to note:
“The contrast between Obama’s proud but private affirmation of his longtime relationship with ACORN and his denial of that relationship during the campaign is striking… a combination of lawyerly evasion and outright falsehood.”
Obama had to deny his deep involvement in ACORN because if we’d known the truth it would have killed his campaign (more about ACORN in #5). After proving that Obama lied about this issue, his involvement with Ayers, his history with Jeremiah Wright, and a number of other topics, Kurtz concludes: “At this point, President Obama’s credibility on the matter of his radical political past is virtually nil.” In other words – he’s a liar.
