Wade offers an explanation for Obama’s puzzling behavior, which makes no sense at all if you see him as a liberal Democrat, because he’s clearly not one. That Republicans call him a socialist or a Communist is some kind of a sick joke.
RL: The movement towards a European style social democracy with the rich scum finally constrained and the working man finally able to get a fair slice of pie was too much for Barack.
Wade: The problem here is that the colored bourgeois is just as hostile to the lower classes as the white bourgeois. The want to harness minority anger and resentment and channel it into support for them which they’ll use to get more minority programs that they can position themselves in as the main beneficiaries. They don’t want to overturn the system, they just want to be cut in.
You’re right. Barack Obama is a Black member of the plutocracy. He’s pro-plutocrat because he’s a plutocrat himself. He wages war on the lower classes because that’s what Barack’s ultra-wealthy top 1% do – wage class war. The fact that he is Black is accidental. What’s really important is Barack’s class. He’s a rich Black man, and he pushes the politics of the rich the same as any rich White man would do.
