That “Jew” Tax rate:

That “Jew” Tax rate:

“Watch your thoughts. They become words.”

“What is in your heart will eventually come out of your mouth.”

President Obama spoke at a meeting of the Black Congressional Caucus on Saturday night. The President made a slip. Speaking off the cuff, apparently without the use of a teleprompter, Obama, in defending his call for raising taxes had this to say…

“When you start saying, at a time when the top one-tenth of one percent have seen their incomes go up four or five times over the last twenty years, and folks at the bottom have seen their incomes decline, and your response is that you want poor folks to pay more? Give me a break! If asking a billionaire to pay the same tax rate as a Jew — as a janitor — makes me a warrior for the working class, I wear that as a badge of honor.”

I’ve watched the footage several times, sound on, (yes, he clearly said Jew), and sound off, (to study the body language), and yes, I believe it was a Freudian slip.

Why do I conclude that? Because of the way the President has treated Israel. I don’t think he likes Jews. I think the President believes in his heart that all of Israel should be in the hands of the Palestinians—that such would bring peace to the Middle East.

For the same reason that I concluded in 2008 that he has an elitist, arrogant attitude toward people who have never enjoyed the privileges and education Obama was afforded, when he said about people who live in rural communities and small towns… “So it’s not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

The mainstream will give Obama a pass…and allow that the word Janitor really does sound like Jew. Others will not be as forgiving, for they have concluded that given Obama’s policies, he really does have an anti-Jewish streak in him that he has worked hard to hide.

Regardless, there is a lesson in this. You can’t be on stage constantly, and give speeches daily, without the real you eventually showing up at the podium. What you think, and what is in your heart, will eventually come out of your mouth.
