hits on parallels between vietnam and drone strikes, the old jim crow and the new jim crow, poverty then and poverty now, etc

west is an actual socialist who is mad about what the actual barack obama has and hasn't done rather than be satisfied with the fairy tale socialist obama that the right has invented

It doesn't seem like Obama's socialist tendencies or apparent lackthereof is really relevant to West's diatribe.

In other words, Obama could be the second coming of Lenin and still be open to the same criticism displayed here.

President Obama is not nearly the socialist that the 'right' have painted him out to be. He benefits the oligarchy more than anyone else, just like the Bushes and Reagan.

Yes, he is a little 'left' of those guys, but that is just because you are not wealthy enough to reap the benefits of the world around you right now like the 1% are.

The banks are cleaning house right now with forclosed property, and bailouts on the backs of taxpayers, without any benefit in return. Any the other ultra-wealthy are buying beachfront community property in Florida, and buying out business competitors that are tanking under the slow economy.

During a bad economy (just like in 1929) money doesnt just 'dissapear'... it changes hands from the middle-class to the elite.

not really; obama would then be open to other criticism as west is a self-described "non-marxist socialist" and lenin was a marxist. to say that obama would still be open to the same criticism displayed here (which is clearly rooted in west's resistance to a capitalistic system) is...odd

poverty is uh i guess you could call it a point of disagreement between socialists and neo-liberals

oh and "the new jim crow" has as much to do with capitalism as it does with racism; luckily for its proponents, it has risen in america where these two things can work together in harmony

e: i guess you could be attempting a "wars and poverty exist in communism therefore" argument but the fact that west isn't a communist seems to imply that solutions can't come from the left, or that poverty and exploitation are not perfectly valid criticisms of capitalism to be made by the left
