A few weeks ago, while watching Hillary’s America, a certain mention caught my attention. It portrayed Barack Obama as a child sitting in a Chicago, Hyde Park Barbershop called Smitty’s. The conversation of “Plantation politics” took place between he and Smitty.
I did quite a bit of searching to try to find more information on that particular conversation when I happened on THIS BLOG POST “Obama To Poor Blacks – Stay Poor” written in 2009 by Francis Rice, co-founder and Chairman of the National Black Republican Association. Upon reading the opening comment, I knew I had landed in the right place!
I continued to read the entire post, and encourage you to do the same – but that’s not what I was there for. I wanted to learn more about Obama and his “Plantation politics” conversation with Smitty.
I found it, about halfway down the page:
In his book “Dreams From My Father“, Obama wrote disdainfully about blacks who complain about being poor, yet continue to vote for Democrats — like Obama — who keep them poor. On page 147 of his book, Obama described what he and his fellow Democrats do to poor blacks as “plantation politics” when he wrote: “A plantation. Black people in the worst jobs. The worst housing. Police brutality rampant. But when the so-called black committeemen came around election time, we’d all line up and vote the straight Democratic ticket. Sell our soul for a Christmas turkey.”
Since there was no source linked and only the page number was mentioned, I wanted to verify for myself that this statement is indeed what was written by Obama himself. That’s when I searched out a copy of his book which I found on Google Books HERE.
Ironically, the book is there for anyone to read, but pages 146 to 147 are not shown. See the screenshot here:
That’s when my curiosity peaked. I had to know what was on those pages and the only way was to purchase the book – so I did. I went to Amazon and purchased the Kindle version and went right to those pages to read for myself. See the screenshot here:
Until July of last year, I would have NEVER dreams of such a thing. I was viewing the world through very strong liberal filters. I supported and defended Obama and Hillary many times – often resulting in feuds between me, family and friends. Once Kate Steinle was murdered, I began to see things SO clear!
Plantation politics is very real! Yes, Obama has created jobs, but those jobs are lower wage jobs. That is NOT good enough to take the place of the higher wage jobs that were lost.
The entire motivation is securing VOTES! Keeping people poor and angry so they will believe the promises of hope and change. They vote for the person promising them a better life only to never truly deliver.
Inner cities ARE the new plantations where people are enslaved and supported just enough to keep them voting and keep the person promising change in the greatest position of power.
Unfortunately for Obama and Hillary, more and more blacks are growing wise to their game so they’ve been forced to devise a new plan to secure votes. Enter illegal immigrants and refugees.
Immigrants and refugees come here seeking a better life. Who better to sell the promise of hope and change to?
The fact of the matter is, LEGAL STATUS FOR IMMIGRANTS WILL prevent employers from paying sub-minimum wages to create unfair competition between workers. (that equates to fewer jobs and lower wage jobs for everyone while the employers still make the same profits – the rich get richer!)
WHY is that SO hard for so many to see?
An ILLEGAL STATUS is nothing more than a way for people, HUMAN BEINGS to become the NEW SLAVE in plantation politics. It also opens the door for them to become victims of horrific crimes like human trafficking and other forms of abuse.
A VOTE for Hillary Clinton is a vote for continued support of Plantation Politics. If she becomes president and has the power to appoint to the Supreme Court, there will be NO going back. Plantation politics will become the new norm to which blacks, whites, illegal’s and refugees who are middle class or impoverished will all become a slave.
