LORD OF THE FLIES: Obama’s ‘Rules for Radicals’ SOTU Speech Upsets Many Black Americans

After reviewing Obama’s 2014 State of the Union address (SOTU), the 1954 novel Lord of the Flies comes to mind. You know the one – William Golding’s savage depiction of a group of youths stranded on an uninhabited island, attempting to govern themselves, before eventually descending into utter chaos without rule or law.

As the story evolves, the boys turn on each other, all the while feeling haunted by some unknown Beast and through the offering of a sow’s head, frozen with a dark grimacing grin, they look to appease the Beast. Symbolically, the head was said to be a psychical embodiment of ‘Beelzebub’ and is known as ‘Lord of the Flies’.

Similarly, the American people have also been haunted – forced to accept a completely unaccountable government, fraudulent debt that isn’t theirs, endless wars, the lack of jobs, a shrinking middle class and a narcissistic president operating for the global elite, with a one size fits all communist vision. The list of abuses waged against Americans at the hands of a corrupt and lawless leadership are almost too many to mention, as no one can deny that divisive rhetoric and ideology has quickly become a regular part of our daily diet, especially when it comes out of Washington, DC.

Some think that the State of the Union is an event largely used to bolster favorability, having long since lost its original purpose, becoming a place to posture and grandstand to a particular party base or party favorites like those found on Wall Street.

Thomas Jefferson, the nation’s 3rd President, compared the idea of a presidential speech or SOTU as a “speech from the throne.” Denouncing it as something akin to the Monarch. Whether the State of the Union address is relevant or not, it does seem to function as a bully pulpit for the president to push an agenda. The 2014 SOTU seemed to be no exception to this, as Obama made clear this will be a ‘year of action’ in full propaganda mode:

Let’s make this a year of action. That’s what most Americans want, for all of us in this chamber to focus on their lives, their hopes, their aspirations. And what I believe unites the people of this nation, regardless of race or region or party, young or old, rich or poor, is the simple, profound belief in opportunity for all, the notion that if you work hard and take responsibility, you can get ahead in America.”

Here we see Obama doing what he does best, deciding what most Americans want, with or without their consent, while also making sure to keep people divided, whether through one’s ethnicity, personal beliefs, class or gender, all nestled under the banner of equal opportunity. This is underlined by the president’s call for higher minimum wage, which as studies show, will not really affect poverty-stricken areas of the country.

Despite his administrative trend towards executive orders, the real power of the commander-and-chief has been in decline each passing year, as corporations like Monsanto and Goldman Sachs hold more political capital Washington than anyone in the White House, as evidenced by this excerpt from Obama’s SOTU:

“Today, after four years of economic growth, corporate profits and stock prices have rarely been higher, and those at the top have never done better.”

Obama has claimed that nearly 8 million jobs have been added under his watch but what he fails to mention is that according to the latest Census statistics from the year 2012, roughly 46,496,000 people have been living in poverty – that’s an increase of 6.7 million since 2008. Most likely, the real numbers are much higher than the figures listed above, as most Americans can’t be bothered to fill out any sort of privacy invading Census form.

It is well-known that Obama is an “Alinskyite” and a Bill Ayers protegé, seemingly born out of the cold basement of the Weather Underground’s Marxist-laden headquarters, presumably as a ‘Red Diaper Baby’ with the principles and ideology of the their official political statement dubbed, “Prairie Fire,” a subversive communist document that laid bare its true intentions for America:

“We need a revolutionary communist party in order to lead the struggle, give coherence and direction to the fight, seize power and build the new society.”

In 1969, the FBI was said to have tracked specific members of the Students for a Democratic Society that had also shared covert relationships with the Soviet Intelligence Service (SIS). The SDS was heavily connected to the Weatherman as many of its members had been a part of both groups, including Ayers himself. Members of the SDS were later exposed as being interlopers looking for new recruits that were easily manipulated.
Today it is clear that The Weather Underground was psyop forced upon the American people and was used as a destructive tool to indoctrinate young liberals into pushing for a socialist agenda, while also turning them into willing pawns for domestic terror. Similarly, the The Occupy Movement (aka OWS) was a think-tank-spun neo-liberal divide and conquer stratagem, designed to placate naive participants with staged black bloc violence, in the hopes for economic change. This only served to expose the entire movement, along with its corporate financiers as being a form of controlled opposition, with no viable means of change.

The Weather Underground’s doctrine, Prairie Fire, deliberately advocated violence through its calculated political message, as an attempt to quell non-violent protest movements in the future. It was meant to handicap future dissent through its radical ideology, an ideology crafted by the likes of Ayers and others:

PRAIRIE FIRE is written to all sisters and brothers who are engaged in armed struggle against the enemy. It is written to prisoners, women’s groups, collectives, study groups, workers’ organizing committees, communes, GI organizers, consciousness-raising groups, veterans, community groups and revolutionaries of all kinds; to all who will read, criticize and bring its content to life in practice. It is written as an argument against those who oppose action and hold back the struggle.”

It is important to remember that Obama has tried desperately to hide his close ties with Ayers with whom he was a founding member on the board of directors of the Woods Fund of Chicago and later sat on a panel discussion with Ayers calledIntellectuals in Times of Crisis: Experiences and applications of intellectual work in urgent situations.”

Over the years, Obama has played the perfect “revolutionary mole,” stirring up the masses with the help of dishonest legislation like the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), the resurrection of socially engineered political tools such as the ‘War on Women’ and who could forget the always morphing climate change narrative. Far from being a ‘uniting force’ (which was the reason many voted for him in 2008) Obama has divided the public on class-related economic issues, gender and race, all the while, building a new consolidated future in America, a future that has been explicitly outlined in The Weather Underground’s belief system.

Following the president’s State of the Union address, black residents of a Chicago grassroots organization responded with a voice of their own. Stating that the president “has been more hurtful to the black race, then has been helpful,” as said by Joe Watkins, the founding member of V.O.T.E. (Voices of the Ex-offender).

Below is a post by Rebel Pundit on YouTube that documents the inner city turmoil over Obama…

We would probably be better off with you cutting off your presidency right now.”
– Mark Carter, Activist for V.O.T.E.

At every turn, a climate of ingenuity and growth has been stunted by Obama’s policies. It appears that most members of Congress have fallen remarkably silent following the most recent ‘Rules for Radicals’ SOTU, losing the plot with new amnesty proposals and failing to get to the bottom of the plethora of scandals the Obama Administration is embroiled in.

It seems the conch has been smashed in America, just as it was in The Lord of the Flies, ushering in one empty leader after another
