cornel west is mad, correct, and praying for obama with newt gingrich

Recommended Posts

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.

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
