“Words of tyranny”
“Propaganda of the Statist”

Here are the select excerpts from Obama’s commencement address at Wesleyan to which Levin refers to.

Transcript Of Obama’s Wesleyan Commencement Address

[…]Each of you will have the chance to make your own discovery in the years to come. And I say “chance” because you won’t have to take it. There’s no community service requirement in the real world; no one forcing you to care. You can take your diploma, walk off this stage, and chase only after the big house and the nice suits and all the other things that our money culture says you should by. You can choose to narrow your concerns and live your life in a way that tries to keep your story separate from America’s.

But I hope you don’t. Not because you have an obligation to those who are less fortunate, though you do have that obligation. Not because you have a debt to all those who helped you get here, though you do have that debt.

It’s because you have an obligation to yourself. Because our individual salvation depends on collective salvation. Because thinking only about yourself, fulfilling your immediate wants and needs, betrays a poverty of ambition. Because it’s only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential and discover the role you’ll play in writing the next great chapter in America’s story.[…]

[…]At a time when our ice caps are melting and our oceans are rising, we need you to help lead a green revolution.We still have time to avoid the catastrophic consequences of climate change if we get serious about investing in renewable sources of energy, and if we get a generation of volunteers to work on renewable energy projects, and teach folks about conservation, and help clean up polluted areas; if we send talented engineers and scientists abroad to help developing countries promote clean energy.

At a time when a child in Boston must compete with children in Beijing and Bangalore, we need an army of you to become teachers and principals in schools that this nation cannot afford to give up on. I will pay our educators what they deserve, and give them more support, but I will also ask more of them to be mentors to other teachers, and serve in high-need schools and high-need subject areas like math and science.

At a time when there are children in the city of New Orleans who still spend each night in a lonely trailer, we need more of you to take a weekend or a week off from work, and head down South, and help rebuild. If you can’t get the time, volunteer at the local homeless shelter or soup kitchen in your own community. Find an organization that’s fighting poverty, or a candidate who promotes policies you believe in, and find a way to help them.

At a time of war, we need you to work for peace. At a time of inequality, we need you to work for opportunity. At a time of so much cynicism and so much doubt, we need you to make us believe again.

Now understand this – believing that change is possible is not the same as being naïve. Go into service with your eyes wide open, for change will not come easily. On the big issues that our nation faces, difficult choices await. We’ll have to face some hard truths, and some sacrifice will be required – not only from you individually, but from the nation as a whole.[…]

[…]I don’t know how many of you have been asked that question, but after today, you have no excuses. I am asking you, and if I should have the honor of serving this nation as President, I will be asking again in the coming years. We may disagree on certain issues and positions, but I believe we can be unified in service to a greater good. I intend to make it a cause of my presidency, and I believe with all my heart that this generation is ready, and eager, and up to the challenge.[…]

[..]But surely, if one man can achieve so much and make such a difference in the lives of so many, then each of us can do our part. Surely, if his service and his story can forever shape America’s story, then our collective service can shape the destiny of this generation.[…]

In keeping with the central theme…

Let’s shut this puppy down with an image from Doug Ross (spotted in O’Hare Airport)

Some like it hot, I like it red.
Red is my lover, got it covered
Red is my number, sure as my names Obama
Red is my drummer, and I hear red thunder
Move over brother,
Red’s a …..

You get the picture.

    That picture is Communist/Nazi like propaganda posters. The Nazis and Commies were both radical Leftists. They had an idea of a New Man or Master Race. Obama rallies remind me of Nazi rallies of the 30’s. It’s almost a cult.

    Obama’s rhetoric is clearly socialist at times… however… it lacks that “je ne sais quoi” element of Communism. 🙂

    But I like Levin’s show… YA BIG DOPE! 🙂 lol!

    I think Obama is much more likely to be like Carter than like Stalin…

    … although… he does have that air of egoism doesn’t he…

    It sure does call to mind the styling of communist posters. Which is exactly why I added it.
    We are coming down toward the final stretch. We must keep fighting the good fight. Obama must not gain the presidency!

    You think Obama is bad now. The worse is yet to come. He’ll show his real teeth if he wins. (God forbid)

    Yes, If Obama wins us Righties might have to flee to Mexico!
    I know a real cool hiding place! 🙂

    Mark Levin is most excellent. He says IT so well: “Liberalism, it’s the slow road to tyranny!”

    He was so right about what Obama said. Obama didn’t mention capitalism at all, he didn’t mention how capitalism and free markets has and will/can continue to solve world problems.

    Thanks for posting that Liberty Cartoon, that’s one of the greatest things I’ve seen.

    If that facist, socialist S.O.B. wins we will surely be an Obama-nation.

    Of course, Levin sees through all the code language Obama uses.!

    And, to some extent, so does Jon Voight. Yes, Hollywood’s Midnight Cowboy and father of Angelina Jolie. See this at my web site.

    You guys know that poster is a fake, right? If you want to attack Obama for trying to bring people together to work for the common good, that’s your right. But, using a fake poster as evidence that he’s a communist is over the line.

    Commie, moonbat, stealth muzzie, all describe Obama well but I am thinking that the most accurate description is Anti-Christ…

    Not joking either…

    The poster wasn’t used as evidence. It was not attributed to Obama or his campaign. It is merely a visual representation of her views. How that is over the line is beyond me.

    “If you want to attack Obama for trying to bring people together to work for the common good, that’s your right.”

    The Common Good! That’s Communism, Communism is for the Common good. Common is the base word of communism. Thanks for admitting Obama is a Communist. You made our case!

    LOL That does not make me feel much better. Carter is a loose cannon. 😮

    Thank you for the great link!

    God forbid! And God help us “if” it happens.

    I have heard of the Voight vid. I need to go have a look. Haven’t had time just yet but I will.


    Obama’s plans for America are over the line.
    Melo has covered things for me quite well.
    BTW Thanks for the inspiration! 😛

    To be honest sometimes I wonder…sometimes I wonder…


    Thanks dude! You took the words out of my mouth.


    Go get ’em big guy. lol You know isn’t socialism just watered down communism? 🙂

    From this source:

    Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s Old party was called the New Party. The party was a Marxist Political coalition. This was not a guilt by association thing. Senator Obama sought out their nomination. He was successful in obtaining that endorsement, and he used a number of New Party volunteers as campaign workers…

    More at the above link.

    Thanks again AOW

    Yes the puzzle pieces are coming together. I should do a piece on that connection too.
    I am finishing up with one on the Pfleger controversy at the moment.
    Taking a breather I’m just about done.
