A just discovered 2002 speech has Obama in full class warfare mode attacking wealth
In what could become more controversial remarks, an old video of Barack Obama has surfaced showing the then-state senator accusing rich people of using their economic power to “violate” the lives of their employees, and keep them down.
Obama: "Rich people are all for non-violence", unless they are perpetrating it
COMRADE OBAMA: "The philosophy of nonviolence only makes sense if the powerful can be made to recognize themselves in the powerless. It only makes sense if the powerless can be made to recognize themselves in the powerful. You know, the principle of empathy gives broader meaning, by the way, to Dr. King’s philosophy of nonviolence.

The spirit of empathy condemns not only the use of fire hoses and attack dogs to keep people down but also accountants and tax loopholes to keep people down."
