Sometimes REALITY and the TRUTH make their way to forefront.
Exclusive Audio: In 1994, Obama Criticized Clinton’s “Values” Pitch

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A previously unheard 1994 lecture by a young Barack Obama offers a new glimpse of his days as a up-and-coming, liberal Illinois politician.
The recording, given to BuzzFeed by a Republican source, comes from a lecture on the nature of community values he delivered at Nebraska Wesleyan University on September 9, 1994.
Notice that it was not uncovered by any investigative journalist. They do not investigate Obama.
Obama told the students in Lincoln, Neb. that “values are dynamic,”and he dismissed appeals from everyone from Bill Clinton to Dan Quayle to “static” or “Ozzie and Harriet” values. Obama suggested those values — “The wife is at home, she’s not working, Dad’s got his 9 to 5, there are no African-Americans in these family values.” — were woefully out of date.
So Obama believes that blacks have a completely different set of values from whites?
But notice that even during the “last century,” Obama was mocking these values as being out of date and from the days of ‘black and white TV.’
For the record, Obama had joined Reverend Wright’s church six years earlier, in in 1988. And he said he did so because of their pledge to the radical ‘Black Value System,’ which attacked middle class values as a trap for African-Americans. (See below.)
But in reality, Obama’s hatred of the middle class is lifelong.
Obama argued that the talk of values was empty without social action, and without a vigorous government role: “It’s not easy to live up to your ideals, it requires sacrifice. It may require taxes on the part of the society. It may require that you go without certain luxuries that you become accustomed to.”
In other words, Obama was obsessed with redistribution even then. And naturally he wanted to do that through taxes and punishing ‘the rich.’ Which is still what he wants to do 18 years later.
“There’s no discussion of poverty in these values,” Obama said. “There’s not much talk about a nuclear arms race that was taking place on the television programs,” he said. “So the notion is that we can somehow return to that time and recapture those values without acknowledging all the things that were left out. Well, that’s not the case.” …
No poverty or arms race discussions in sitcoms? How shocking. But which TV shows did Obama believe we should base our values on?
In the 1994 recording, Obama speaks derisively of the “values” articulated by leading Democratic figures like Bill Clinton and Jesse Jackson.
Just think, Obama was (is) not only to the left of Bill Clinton, but Jesse Jackson as well.
“Values have made a comeback,” Obama is heard saying. “Dan Quayle talks about values. He talks about Murphy Brown and her lack of values. Bill Clinton talks about values. Jesse Jackson talks about values. So we have values all over the place. Politicians really like values now. Part of the reason for that is values are cheap, at least the way they talk about them. You don’t have to pay any money or tax anybody to talk about values. Family values, American values, values.”
“First as I said I think values are dynamic. Part of the reason I don’t trust Dan Quayle talking about values and I often don’t trust Bill Clinton talking about values is they tend to have a static notion of values. Dan Quayle talks about values in terms of Ozzie and Harriet values…
I’m always struck by values that are embodied in these television shows which I think are the values that people have in mind when they talk about return to American values. The wife is at home, she’s not working, Dad’s got his 9 to 5, there are no African-Americans in these family values. There’s no discussion of poverty in these values. There’s not much talk about a nuclear arms race that was taking place on the television programs. So the notion is that we can somehow return to that time and recapture those values without acknowledging all the things that were left out. Well, that’s not the case.”
The audio recording is one of several moments in the 1990s in which Obama made clear that he didn’t consider himself a Clinton Democrat…
No, Bill Clinton was far too conservative for Obama. In fact, he still is.
For the record, here is an excerpt from the mission statement of Reverend Wright’s church, which embraced the racist, separatist, ‘Black Value System’ (which has since been expunged from their website):
THE BLACK VALUE SYSTEM
Statement of Purpose
We have prayerfully called the wisdom of all past generations of suffering Blacks for guidance in fashioning an instrument of Black self-determination, the Black Value System…
Disavowal of the Pursuit of “Middleclassness”
Classic methodology on control of captives teaches that captors must keep the captive ignorant educationally, but trained sufficiently well to serve the system. Also, the captors must be able to identify the “talented tenth” of those subjugated, especially those who show promise of providing the kind of leadership that might threaten the captor’s control.
Those so identified as separated from the rest of the people by:
Killing them off directly, and/or fostering a social system that encourages them to kill off one another.
Placing them in concentration camps, and/or structuring an economic environment that induces captive youth to fill the jails and prisons.
Seducing them into a socioeconomic class system which while training them to earn more dollars, hypnotizes them into believing they are better than others and teaches them to think in terms of “we” and “they” instead of “us”.
So, while it is permissible to chase “middle-incomeness” with all our might, we must avoid the third separation method-the psychological entrapment of Black “middleclassness”: If we avoid the snare, we will also diminish our “voluntary” contributions to methods A and B. And more importantly, Black people no longer will be deprived of their birthright, the leadership, resourcefulness, and example of their own talented persons…
