And I think if we continue, doc , to ignore the plight of the poor in this country. If we continue to ignore the plight of the weak working class, if the gap between the have gots and the have nots continues to widen in this country. I don’t think that kind of upraising is a far-fetched idea. —Travis SmileyJust how close is America from an Egypt like revolution? Travis Smiley and Professor Cornell West speculated the possibilities of Americans revolting against their government and the economic power establishments in America just like what is going on in Egypt in a recent radio interview.
What is so interesting about this February 6, 2011 radio conversation is there is a Black man who is the Leader of America. The American Oligarchy and Plutocracy of which professor West advocates overthrow are both lead by a Black man, president Barry Hussein Soetoro.
The Soetoro stimulus and bailouts that funneled trillions of dollars into the pockets of Bankers and the political upper class left homeowners and the poor stranded. Because of Soetoro’s policies, the poor will remain so or get poorer while the rich get richer in spite of the Soetoro false claims that he is working for the poor.
What is absolutely true is president Soetoro is a devotee of 1960’s radical Saul Alinsky. Alinsky advocated using the poor and middle class [as pawns] to achieve power. President Soetoro has done as his philosophical leader and mentor has taught him to do. He used the poor by promising fidelity to them only to continue policies that keep his fellow Oligarchs and the Plutocrats in power.
Not satisfied that they have established a Saul Alinsky radical Protégé at the very pinnacle of Western civilized power the radical left as represented by Travis Smiley and professor Cornell West still anticipate a day when America will be rioting in the streets like Egypt. It would not be at all surprising if the one who occupies the White house shares both men’s vision for this country. (hear 1:42min audio)
The Left has been calling for a revolution in this country for years. they look to Egypt with envy of what could be here in the United States if they get their way.
May that possibility never be. It is up to Americans at the polls in 2012 to beat back the Socialist who presently controls our government and our media . Or in the very near future, we may all walk like the Egyptians.
