Hat tip Big Government
"It's hard to imagine that the powerful in our society would tolerate the burgeoning prison-industrial complex if they'd imagine that the black men and Latino men that are being imprisoned were something like their sons."
Andrew Breitbart is speaking from the grave. Here is a video of a Barack Obama speech from 2002 that is running on Big Government. In this speech at the University of Chicago, Obama makes a couple of noteworthy quotes that call into question the idea that he is bridging the racial divide.
"I don't know if you've noticed but rich people are all for nonviolence. Why wouldn't they be. They've got what they want."
Of course, compared to Bill Ayres and Jeremiah Wright, this shouldn't be too big a shock. Perhaps it is a reminder that Obama was never vetted by the news media in 2008. Obama was asked one time about his relationship with Ayres, and he answered by describing him as a respected college professor who happened to live in the neighborhood. As for Wright, Obama turned out that "great speech" in Philadelphia that Chris Mattherws compared to the Gettysburg Address or some such nonsense.
Now these videos come out that show a different Barack Obama from the one who gave that speech in Philadelphia.
