Re: Obama vs Malcolm X: Ideological Heavyweight Match

Obama is a puppet. He doesn't give a toss about the people - look at how he's reinvading Afghanistan. That's exactly what Bush did. Obama also voted for the warrantless wiretapping bill. There is a new documentary out about his lies on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eAaQNACwaLw

watch before it's too late.

Re: Obama vs Malcolm X: Ideological Heavyweight Match

Come to the debate then, and argue that Obama is no progressive..

Re: Re: Obama vs Malcolm X: Ideological Heavyweight Match

No thanks, I live in Christchurch. Even so, there's no way I'd ever go to a law department to argue something which is obvious. Every single person in Obama's cabinet is a member of the secretive Bilderberg Society, and he is heavily backed by special interests (i.e. the Fed, Goldman Sachs, and the military-industrial complex). There is no-one from auto, silicon valley, small business, and there are no women. They're all bankster-backing scum.

Obama's ideology is TYRANNY.

If I lived in America, I would have voted for Ron Paul. Screw being part of a mindless personality cult.

"I would have voted for Ron Paul. Screw being part of a mindless personality cult."

The two sentences above are a contradiction.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Obama vs Malcolm X: Ideological Heavyweight Matc

Well kind of but not really... because Ron Paul supporters usually aren't mindless and they like him for his patriotism and support of the constitution. With Obama it's more of a creepy Mao-ist thing that people have for him :) ... who knows, maybe little blue books will be coming soon...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Obama vs Malcolm X: Ideological Heavyweight

Ron Pauls racism, desire to kill off welfare, desire to expell immigrants, cavorting with neo-nazis, and his odd commandment to "kill your parents", make him pretty hard to support

Re: Obama vs Malcolm X: Ideological Heavyweight Match

please post your boring rubbish elsewhere!!!

Re: Re: Obama vs Malcolm X: Ideological Heavyweight Match

^ Loser.

Re: Obama vs Malcolm X: Ideological Heavyweight Match

according to Trevor Loudon, Obama is a secret socialist that will give the world 3 and a half years of peace before transforming into the anti-christ and bringing on the Great Tribulation.

Re: Re: Obama vs Malcolm X: Ideological Heavyweight Match

Ha! It must be a metaphor. Who knows, maybe the CIA will nuke Washington this year, and kick the shadow government into action (yes such thing actually exists. They have all these "Iron Mountain" style hide outs on the east coast). The people (or should I say bankers) who run the world are genuinely MAD... worse yet, they control Obama.

Re: Obama vs Malcolm X: Ideological Heavyweight Match

seriously, im getting fed up checking out Indymedia and seeing 3/4 of the comments are from conspiracy wackos. please leave indymedia aotearoa alone and go set up your own website for discussions on all that stuff because its seriously interfering with constructive debate here.

Re: Re: Obama vs Malcolm X: Ideological Heavyweight Match

Please don't insult my intelligence by calling me a "conspiracy wacko". This site is full of nonsense anyway. We don't need debates or socialism, it's just a bogus "left vs right" "capitalism vs socialism" thing. We need to arrest the international bankers and throw them in jail. Can't you see who the real enemies are? There is an obvious solution right in front of you. Open your eyes.

Re: Obama vs Malcolm X: Ideological Heavyweight Match

"This site is full of nonsense anyway"
then go somewhere else

Re: Obama vs Malcolm X: Ideological Heavyweight Match

Indymedia Editors,
what is to be done about this spamming???
Its getting worse

Re: Re: Obama vs Malcolm X: Ideological Heavyweight Match

What spamming? I'm encouraging people to research important alternative issues. I thought that was what indymedia is about.

Re: Obama vs Malcolm X: Ideological Heavyweight Match

Riiiight.

So they're both black, so they get to be compared? They're in completely different leagues.

Re: Re: Obama vs Malcolm X: Ideological Heavyweight Match

Was an interesting meeting, Lots of different points of view.

In the second part we had our friends from Tamil Eelam there.

Re: Obama vs Malcolm X: Ideological Heavyweight Match

it would have been interesting cause i just red an autobiography from malcolm x, and i'm also aware of the info anonymous speaks of,
i feel that the way your going about introducing the 'conspiracy' info is not really productive or efficient in encouraging further discussion about this.
but yeah your free to do what you like, but wouldn't it be better to create a separate thread ?

my thoughts about barak obama

I think that Barak Obama is making one of the most dangerous mistakes of his life not only for himself but for our country.
he wants to share the wealth but if your the one who owns the money and you were planning on putting that money towards that pontune boat you want and obama decids that he wants to take your money and just give it to whoever he pleases well thats fine if you want him to use it for his porkulus bill well ok heres my thought he don't deserve to be president he's a big butt face and democrat more like demo-rat.
thank you for your time.

Re: Obama vs Malcolm X: Ideological Heavyweight Match

And thank you for nothing.
