INTOLERANCE & CLASS WARFARE BROUGHT TO YOU BY HOPE & CHANGE UNITER OBAMA

I discovered this article after I sent you my comment.

THE TRUE NAME OF BARACK OBAMA'S CHANGE, INTOLERANCE by Jeff Tyler

http://www.americanthinker.com/2008/11/the_true_name_of_barack_obamas.html

Excerpts Taken Out of Sequence

Remember the time when it was okay to disagree with, or even dislike, a presidential candidate? If you're reading this, you're old enough to remember that time, since it was just a year ago. It's not okay anymore.

These days if you disagree with Sen. Obama you're almost immediately called a racist.

These days if you question Sen. Obama, like Joe the Plumber questioned him, you come under the scrutiny of hundreds of professionals in the press and in the government.

"White people should not be allowed to vote!" says a Philadelphia Inquirer columnist, and the paper stays in business, although had they suggested taking the voting right away from black Americans, they'd be rightfully facing a nationwide outcry.

We get chuckling crowds in front of an effigy of Sarah Palin hung by a noose.

Since when did it become okay to hang a figure of a real woman, a mother of five, on the streets? Since when did it become okay to parade around with blood covered guillotine decorated with the head of the President, and get not a peep from the media?

I can tell you since when. Since Sen. Obama has started deliberately dividing the country. True, a good share of his speeches featured obligatory united we stand messages. But many, many other speeches have been sending a very different signal. For months Sen. Obama has been going on stage and drawing lines in every major cultural divide, be it race, income, party or gender, trying to turn Americans against each other.

Dliberately dividing people to achieve political objectives is a very old trick in the book of power. It has often worked. When it does work, it has always cost the people of the nation who have been blinded by inspiriring divisive orators. That cost has usually been dear.

No matter where you look, Sen. Obama shows the same pattern. divide, divide, divide. Why? Because divide and conquer is a proven way to gain power.

When it comes to comparing incomes, Sen. Obama has been deliberately promoting class warfare. His endless talk about social justice and government arranged wealth distribution is nothing but a new incarnation of a two hundred year old theory that has created the worst regimes in history.

Do you remember seeing rich vs. poor headlines a year ago? Now they adorn the front pages of newspapers every day. Is it because the poverty level has gone up dramatically over the last 12 months? Or is it because the most visible US politician has spared no effort to highlight that some people make more money than others. And that this is just not fair?

Just days ago Sen. Obama labeled Americans who don't support his idea of raising taxes "selfish." Think about his famous ad that focused on Sen. McCain's homes. How many people realized that the ad was simply attacking McCain for being rich? The ad portrayed people who have earned a high level of income as untrustworthy, even evil. So much for the American Dream.

America is on a dangerous path. It's easy to forget how lucky we are. We're not a perfect community. There are no perfect communities. We're not one happy family, we're millions of families, some of them quite unhappy. There are tensions, there are problems, there's some hate to overcome, there are some really ugly things to take care of, and there are thousands of issues to solve.

It tells you a lot about a person when he steps into the spotlight and time and again tries to pit us all against each other, camoflaging his actions beneath sweet images of hope and change.
