Manifesto destiny

Pop quiz... which of the following was said by a revolutionary communist calling for the overthrow of American democracy and which was said by Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn in 1976?

a) "With 6 percent of the world population, the US consumes over one third of the world's energy resources. The corporate myth of limitless consumption is based on control of Third World resources. The ruling class encourages a wasteful and reckless dependence on petrochemical products: high horse-power and excessively heavy cars, plastics and synthetics and nitrogen fertilizers. The failure to develop good sources of energy (such as fusion or solar energy) is not based on priorities for a better life, but on profit."

b) "We can't drive our SUVs and, you know, eat as much as we want and keep our homes on, you know, 72 degrees at all times, whether we're living in the desert or we're living in the tundra, and then just expect every other country is going to say OK, you know, you guys go ahead keep on using 25 percent of the world's energy, even though you only account for 3 percent of the population, and we'll be fine."

This reference to America's population versus its energy resources has appeared at least twice during Obama's campaign for President; in a speech in Roseberg, Oregon (quoted above) and in his his energy speech in Lansing, Michigan. Senator Barack Obama is not only a long time associate of domestic terrorists. He is cribbing his stump speeches from their manifesto. I can only assume from Ayers and Dohrn's personal copy - how many were ever printed - perhaps from a book shelf in the same living room where they launched Obama's political career. This is not just a leftist talking point, it is evidence of pre-calculation.

Bill Ayers is more than Obama's ghost writer; he is Obama's speech writer.

The preceding Weather Underground quote is from Page 19 of "Prairie Fire complete" [page 31 of the 4.8Mb .pdf file], a copy of which may be found at Little Green Footballs. Please scroll two posts down here at the Flea for more from Prairie Fire, the 1976 Weather Underground manifesto.

Update: Zombietime reviews specific parallels between Obama's rhetoric and Osawtomie, a newspaper published by the Weather Underground in 1975. The similarity between Obama's campaign logo - the would be seal of the President of the United States - and the Weather Underground logo is startling.

And ... To each according to his need.

The US has a greater need for energy than other countries because it's a big job creating wealth for the entire world and trying to keep the peace simultaneously.

It's not as though the US isn't paying handsomely for that energy.

What a crock these commies piss in.

Exactly. They do not - cannot - create or produce anything of economic value themselves so the only economic model they have is drawn from their own lives: Zero-sum parasitism, the expropriation of the labour of others by force or by guile.

Barack Obama is not a socialist. He is, at minimum, a posturing cultural Marxist. He is, in practice, an associate and apprentice of revolutionary communists.
