Obama: “We Are All Connected” Whether You Crossed Rio Grande or Landed on Ellis Island

Real Clear Politics, April 21, 2012

“No matter who you are. No matter where you can came from. No matter what you look like. No matter whether your ancestors landed here on Ellis Island or came here on slave ships or came across the Rio Grande, we are all connected. We will rise and fall together. That’s the vision of America I’ve got, that’s the idea of the heart of America,” President Obama said at a fundraiser in San Francisco.

“That’s the idea of the heart of our campaign,” Obama added.

    And as I said on Friday many times, this is just another reason NOT to vote for this dictator.
    (As if you needed any more reasons.)

  • This speech doesn’t sound like Osama’s sharing a vision of unification; it sounds more like
    a declaration of war.
    The self declared “have not’s” really have their eyes on what the perceived “haves” have i.e. America. If the ‘new Americans’ (don’t take me to task on that) are more intent on old Americans being assimilated to their ways, then they’re not ‘undocumented immigrants ’(rolling eyes), ex
    slaves (he had to slip that one in didn’t he) or 20th century Ellis island immigrants, no they’re more like invaders!
    And to the ‘old Americans’, they see you as privileged, obviously undeserving  and sitting on titles that these new Americans feel so entitled too. Maybe I’m reading too much into this or blowing
    it out of proportion, but these lefties are really stirring up a volatile and emotional pot here, just add a low IQ, impulsive people to the mix and you’ve got whole lot of oblivious White Americans getting assaulted and worst, while not being sure why exactly it happened, “I voted for Obama in 08’, so how can ‘they’ be angry with me”? 
    This narrative of entitlement denied that’s being promoted here, feels like it goes beyond this up
    incoming election.
    It’s so frustrating being on this side of the political spectrum and seeing no direct and honest speech (in the mainstream at least) on what’s happening and what we as a people need to do, because we have the tools and the numbers, but not the stage. Thanks to political correctness, we’re in a political boxing fight, with our fighter being armless, which means unless we can overcome this dynamic, our plight is one of defeatism and preparation for the next stage, as the change that these Marxists are pushing for is inevitably going to happen, the question is will it be fast or slow, bloody or relatively non violent etc.
    Time is of the essence. I just wish the elites who are orchestrating this change would see that it’s in their own self interest to avoid this, but in a global world, America must just be another country with X amount of resources to gain, with White Americans simply being an obstacle.

    •  I don’t wish the elite anything except their own destruction. I look forward to the day of mass tribunals, guillotines on the Capitol line, and the extirpation of the entire Judeo-Catholic ruling class from the country.

    Glad to hear I’m not connected with those folks since none of my ancestors passed through Ellis Island; crossed the Rio Grande; or came here in the hold of a slave ship.

    “Grandpa, when did you know it was over for the United States?”

    “When the bastard son of a white whore and a black communist from Chicago, conceived in an act of statutory rape, was elected to sit in the Oval Office, most people thought it was a good idea, and just about everyone agreed it was ‘progress’.”

       You will never hear this on the news but today in New Jersey  AFSCME was doing voter registration drives in front of some of the welfare offices.

    • That’s not fair. To be honest, and until a DNA test is done, it could have been a black, alcoholic, communist from Kenya.

    “We will rise and fall together. That’s the vision of America I’ve got.”

    I’ll bet everything I own on “fall together”.  Obama is in denial that every lesson of history shows that when a society lessens it’s white population — that society falls, not rises.

    Of course, even a fallen white society is better than the societies that blacks and browns create.  And those are the demographics that Obama is looking out for.

    Actually, my ancestors came  Europe between 1695 and 1868, prior to the opening of Ellis Island.  I suspect the same thing would be true of Obama’s White ancestors.

    Um, I saw “The Godfather 2” and Vito Andolini (AKA Don Corleone) was processed at Ellis Island. He didn’t sneak across the Rio Grande.  It certainly says something that Italian Mafiosi make better citizens than Hispanic democrats.

      They had a unwritten code, do not harm women and children and they kept their neighborhood clean and crime free at the street level. Bantus/Mexicans thrive on destruction and violence and EVERYONE is a target to them.

         See the documentary “Cocaine Cowboys.” For the Colombians, collateral damage was half the fun, and when they ordered a hit on someone, his wife and kids went too.

  • While watching this speech with family and friends we all made the or seconded the comment that Obama had purposely left out the group responsible for the creation of the country. This glamorization of groups which arrived in the US at its prime and have merely managed to suck off the fat and now the meat of the country has reached unbelievable proportions. The reason this occurring is simple. The class which is funding these campaigns and is reporting on the campaigns are an alien class, who have only recently arrived in the country. They have a history of bigotry, self-centeredness, and clannishness. Thus, anything outside of their universe is simply unknown to them. Consequently, they cannot conceive of an America pre-existent to their arrival as destitute refuse garbage on the concrete and polluted docks of the East Coast, especially New York.

    All who watched this with me were more determined than ever to organize and make their voices heard. By leaving out as many as 100,000,000 whites responsible for creating the country in their speeches, Obama and Romney both wittingly or unwittingly proved they have no interest in this largest and most powerful interest group in the country. We will ensure that will be their memorable mistake.

    Yep, we are connected.  From my paycheck, through my taxes, to your mailbox, to the box of fried chicken you animals grasp in your dirty, greasy, black fingers – we’re connected.  The devil himself could not have forged a more evil fate for the white race than to be shackled to 40 million low-IQ blacks.

    Shackled . . . what irony.

  • “We will rise and fall together.”
    No, you will fall alone when white flight occurs.

  • ncpride

    I can document mine arriving here in 1643. We are referred to as ‘Scots-Irish’ but I think more Irish than anything. No, I suppose according to Obama, we don’t count anymore.

    You forgot the words “voters” between refugees and matter.
