Obama Doubles Down on Marxist Ideology

Anyone who doubted that a certain red diaper baby who spent his entire life surrounded by communists is a communist himself stood corrected after Obama told Joe the Plumber that “when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.”

Implicit in this statement is the assumption that all wealth belongs to the government to distribute as it sees fit among its more favored subjects. This means that all wealth-generating labor is done on behalf of the government on a slavery basis. Every penny of wealth that we ourselves create and are allowed to keep is considered a gift of the government — a gift that can be snatched away at any moment.

Having spent three years watching his policies erode our economy — driving up debt, unemployment, and gas prices to frightening levels — Comrade Obama has decided to double down on this malignant ideology:

In a campaign speech in Vermont on Friday, President Barack Obama referenced the biblical story of Cain and Abel in condemning what he called “you’re-on-your-own economics” while arguing for a number of policies that involve government transferring wealth from one group of citizens to another — including providing public schools with more money for teachers’ salaries, freezing the interest rates on government-backed student loans, supporting companies developing biofuels, electric batteries and wind and solar power and funding scientists who are doing research on stem cells and climate change.

“I hear politicians talking about values in an election year,” Obama said. “I hear a lot about that. Let me tell you about values. Hard work, personal responsibility–those are values. But looking out for one another. That’s a value. The idea that we’re all in this together. I am my brother’s keeper. I am my sister’s keeper. That’s a value.”

Obama’s own brother, also a community organizer, subsists in a wretched slum in Kenya. Not long ago he was reported to be living in a pathetic hut on less than $1 per month. Meanwhile, Obama and the Bitter Half luxuriate in a lifestyle that the Czars would have envied. But then, socialism isn’t really about spreading wealth; it’s about spreading poverty on behalf of an entrenched ruling class.

No ifs, ands, or buts. Via Give Us Liberty.

    Libs feelings on redistribution is different when it is something they understand ( instead of money.

  2. J says:

    Because we all know that God was upset with Cain because he wasn’t his brother’s keeper, not because he murdered Abel.

    Or maybe if only Abel would agree to Socialized Healthcare, he would not have been murdered?

    Here’s a quiz – which moonbat said this:

    “There is a point at which in peace times high rates of income and profits taxes destroy energy, remove the incentive to new enterprise, encourage extravagant expenditures and produce industrial stagnation with consequent unemployment and other attendant evils.”

    Yes, he really did say that. Does lao care to weigh in on this question? And can he explain how creating jobs and encouraging industry causes industrial stagnation and unemployment and all the other nonsense this lunatic claimed?

  4. Bob Roberts says:

    “freezing the interest rates on government-backed student loans”

    Unless there’s been a major change, those rates always have been frozen. They’ve always been fixed rate loans unless the Democrats changed that recently.

    So what, is Obama admitting the Democrats are to blame and he has to go fix their messes?

    “But looking out for one another. That’s a value. The idea that we’re all in this together. I am my brother’s keeper. I am my sister’s keeper. That’s a value.”

    Yes, it’s a value when chosen voluntarily. When it’s through government theft and coercion, it’s just slavery.

  6. When his aunt needed help, Obama treated her like a leper he’d never met in his entire life

    His wife sure digs that lobster, tho

  7. dmgore says:

    I always thought it was “you are not your brothers keeper” meaning you are responsible for your own actions.

  8. IslandLifer says:

    Insane Soetoro is driving the fast train to economic collapse and we are all on board. Cain=Soetoro Gang. Abel=the American tax payer. He is the keeper of all that is corrupt. He needs a padded cell.

  9. Path says:

    Actions speak louder than words Mr. President.

  10. Logic Mine says:

    I’ve been saying Obama is a Communist (not a SOCIALIST) all of the time. Socialism is nothing but a door one must pass through to arrive at the final destination….Full blown Communism.

  11. KHarn says:

    Since he’s gotten millions of dollars on his book sales alone, when is the ONEderchild going to redistribute HIS OWN wealth? Hmmmmm?

  12. Sam says:

    Channeling his inner Andrew Jackson from Worcester v. Georgia, Urkel calls out SCOTUS:

  13. Seamus says:

    “The president, adopting what he described as the language of conservatives who fret about judicial activism, questioned how an “unelected group of people” could overturn a law approved by Congress.

    Because they can. Didn’t this hack get a law degree at some point? Was there a Harvard cereal he got it out of that people are mistaking for the university?

  14. Jimbo says:

    That is one smug communist bastard who claims to be our leader. He has also ‘warned’ the Supreme Court not to overrule HIS health”care” law.

    Worthless, smug, communist son-of-a-bitch.

  15. Hail The Amberlamps! says:

    The rumor is a pinko mole squealed on the SCOTUS smack down of commiecare. Red Barry’s signature “achievement” is DOA.

    Naturally he doubles-down on the Marxist sloganeering, it’s all he knows.


  16. Eric says:

    I’ve been avoiding Moonbattery more or less for some time because the comment section had fallen into a morrass of competition about who could insult who the best(feeding the trolls).

    Dave, your post here reminds me why this place had such an appeal to me long ago;

    “all wealth-generating labor is done on behalf of the government on a slavery basis. Every penny of wealth that we ourselves create and are allowed to keep is considered a gift of the government — a gift that can be snatched away at any moment.”


  17. F.D.R. in Hell says:

    I had Communists sprinkled throughout my Administration, but this boy in the White House is on Red steroids.

    Whittaker Chambers is dogging me down here for all Eternity. Plus, Marxist Ideology doesn’t look so good in hindsight. 🙁

  18. Kevin R. says:

    Even if we were our brothers keepers where in hell does the constitution delegate to the president the power to enforce that doctrine?

    The president of the united states, as chief executive, ENFORCES the law that congress creates. The president isn’t the leader of society bending society to his vision. This is completely contrary to the office of chief executive. He has crossed a Rubicon of sorts, but the only army he commands in his civil war against the republic is the dregs of society.

  19. Spider says:

    Jimbo, that was no warning Obummer issued to the SCOTUS the other day. It was a threat! Vote the “right” way or i’ll over-rule you the same way i’ve over-ruled and ignored congress.

    We are watching democracy being abolished right before our eyes. We are watching our freedom and liberty being dismantled with each passing day, and all we do is sit and watch “reality” TV. A people who are not willing to fight for their freedom don’t deserve any.

  20. Jimbo says:

    Hey. Spidey, old buddy. I don’t disagree with you one iota. The conservative justices serve the Constitution – not the affirmative action president. The affirmative action president serves himself and communism against the Constitution. The Dipshit-n-Chief said it out loud today – he had quite a communist moment in a long-winded denunciation of capitalism.

  21. JamesJ says:

    This is rich (and hypocritical). Obama has relatives living on the dole illegal here in America. Not to mention his relatives in corrigated huts in Kenya. Apparently he is not HIS brother’s keeper.
