Holy shit, guys. The conservatives have obtained a DAMNING secret video of the American president doing what no American president has ever done before in the history of this country: telling the uncensored truth about institutional racism.
According to that venerable institution for truth, The Daily Caller:
In a video obtained exclusively by The Daily Caller, then-presidential candidate Barack Obama tells an audience of black ministers, including the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, that the U.S. government shortchanged Hurricane Katrina victims because of racism.
“The people down in New Orleans they don’t care about as much!” Obama shouts in the video, which was shot in June of 2007 at Hampton University in Virginia. By contrast, survivors of Sept. 11 and Hurricane Andrew received generous amounts of aid, Obama explains. The reason? Unlike residents of majority-black New Orleans, the federal government considers those victims “part of the American family.”
The racially charged and at times angry speech undermines Obama’s carefully-crafted image as a leader eager to build bridges between ethnic groups. For nearly 40 minutes, using an accent he almost never adopts in public, Obama describes a racist, zero-sum society, in which the white majority profits by exploiting black America. The mostly black audience shouts in agreement. The effect is closer to an Al Sharpton rally than a conventional campaign event.
Gee, ever think that the “accent he almost never adopts in public” is actually what he would sound like in public if it didn’t scare conservatives like Tucker Carlson by reminding them that he’s black. Also, in case you didn’t catch the part where Barack Obama is BLACK, here’s another reminder that he is, in fact, BLACK. Did you get that? BLACK.
The only part of this story that makes me sad is that this video happened in 2007 and not 2012.
