Obama The Anti Military Radical

Well it took eight months after the election but the MSM finally investigated something about Obama and turned up a newspaper article he wrote at Columbia entitled “Breaking The War Mentality.” Obama is anti war and anti military in the piece and he discusses reduction of nuclear arms.

From Andy McCarthy at The Corner:

Nearly six months into the Obama presidency, the mainstream media has finally done a bit of the candidate background reporting it declined to do during the campaign — other than in Wasilla — and whaddya know? The New York Times unearthed a 1983 article called, “Breaking the War Mentality,” that Columbia student Barack Obama wrote for a campus newspaper. The article shows that Obama dreaded American “militarism” and its “military-industrial interests,” while effusing enthusiasm for the dangerously delusional nuclear-freeze movement.

Moreover, while indicating a preference for the political wisdom of reggae singer Peter Tosh over Ronald Reagan or Scoop Jackson, Obama bewailed the “narrow focus” of anti-militarism activists, worrying that they were targeting the “symptoms” rather than the real “disease,” namely, America’s underlying economic and political injustice… Student Obama summed up with near incoherent Lefty gobbledygook:

Indeed, the most pervasive malady of the collegiate system specifically, and the American experience generally, is that elaborate patterns of knowledge and theory have been disembodied from individual choices and government policy. What the members of ARA and SAM try to do is infuse what they have learned about the current situation, bring the words of that formidable roster on the face of Butler Library, names like Thoreau, Jefferson, and Whitman, to bear on the twisted logic of which we are today a part. By adding their energy and effort in order to enhance the possibility of a decent world, they may help deprive us of a spectacular experience — that of war. But then, there are some things we shouldn’t have to live through in order to want to avoid the experience.

This comes as no surprise because Obama is a radical Socialist in the mold of Alinsky. He and his minions have been living the Rules for Radicals and have been moving this country in the wrong direction.

Interestingly, he is now Commander in Chief of the military that he was so against. How do you suppose this would have played out had it been released during the campaign?

Like I said, the media protected little Barry.

Or as my friend the Gateway Pundit writes; “How long do you suppost[sic] the NT[sic] Times have been sitting on this piece?”

Long enough to help him get elected…

    How Barama could write something he knows absolutely nothing about is beyond me- kind of like a sci- fi writer back in the 1800s, I guess.

      Cat got your tongue? Barry could never know what the military does on a daily basis to keep his yale A$$ in power- have you seen him try to salute? It’s hilarious!

    Perhaps someone could explain how the quote from Obama is “anti-military.”

    Or would the be too much to ask?

        I read it. Did you? I doubt it.

        It was 1983 and he was giving a bland report on two student disarmament groups. There is no screed. There is nothing “anti-military” in it. It could have been written by a Sargent. You just don’t like the content of what he reporting about.

      I misspelled it. A Sergeant, “a noncommissioned army officer of a rank above that of corporal.” Someone, anyone, in the military. If anyone should be against war, and avoiding it if possible and less than flippant about going to war, it should be people in the military. This is why it is best to keep the chicken hawks out of leadership. They don’t pay the price for an unnecessary war and they don’t understand it.

      The importance of avoiding war, if possible, is even more clear in a nuclear war which was the focus of these two student groups Obama was writing his bland article about *in 1983.*

      If you have an example of Obama giving an “anti-military screed” in this article, cite it. You don’t do this because it isn’t there. You probably didn’t even read it.

        I know what a noncom is, I was one for 22 of my 24 years in the Army. I wanted to make sure that is what you meant and not some slang I was unfamiliar with.
