Why Did Obama Pick A Manufacturing Czar Who Despises Capitalism?

October 21, 2009

Ron Bloom, the Obama administration’s manufacturing czar, speaking at the 6th Annual Distressed Investing Forum at the Union League Club in New York – Feb. 27-28, 2009:

Generally speaking we get the joke. We know that the free market is nonsense. We know that the whole point is to game the system, to beat the market, or at least find someone who will pay you a lot of money cause their convinced that there is a free lunch. We know this is largely about power, that its an adults only no limit game. We kinda agree with Mao that political power comes largely from the barrel of a gun. And we get it that if you want a friend you should get a dog.”


The Business Insider puts this communist’s role in the Obama administration this way: “His task will be to oversee the rebirth of American manufacturing.”  Who better for such a job than a guy who believes the free market capitalist system that made this country great is nonsense?

Rebirth into what?  Presumably, into something that Mao would get from the barrel of a gun.

Mind you, Mao died in the 1970s.  China floundered around economically.  And it turns out that it was China’s steps toward capitalism led to their economic power that they have today.  Even as the U.S. has increasingly retreated from the capitalism that made it the greatest economic and industrial power in the history of the world.

The English edition of the Russian and formerly communist Pravda has some interesting things to say about the direction of Barack Obama’s “change”:

It can be safely said, that the last time a great nation destroyed itself through its own hubris and economic folly was the early Soviet Union (though in the end the late Soviet Union still died by the economic hand). Now we get the opportunity to watch the Americans do the exact same thing to themselves. The most amazing thing of course, is that they are just repeating the failed mistakes of the past. One would expect their fellow travelers in suicide, the British, to have spoken up by now, but unfortunately for the British, their education system is now even more of a joke than that of the Americans.

While taking a small breather from mouthing the never ending propaganda of recovery, never mind that every real indicator is pointing to death and destruction, the American Marxists have noticed that the French and Germans are out of recession and that Russia and Italy are heading out at a good clip themselves. Of course these facts have been wrapped up into their mind boggling non stop chant of “recovery” and hope-change-zombification. What is ignored, of course, is that we and the other three great nations all cut our taxes, cut our spending, made life easy for small business…in other words: the exact opposite of the Anglo-Sphere.

That brings us to Cap and Trade. Never in the history of humanity has a more idiotic plan been put forward and sold with bigger lies. Energy is the key stone to any and every economy, be it man power, animal power, wood or coal or nuclear. How else does one power industry that makes human life better (unless of course its making the bombs that end that human life, but that’s a different topic). Never in history, with the exception of the Japanese self imposed isolation in the 1600s, did a government actively force its people away from economic activity and industry.

Even the Soviets never created such idiocy. The great famine of the late 1920s was caused by quite the opposite, as the Soviets collectivized farms to force peasants off of their land and into the big new factories. Of course this had disastrous results. So one must ask, are the powers that be in Washington and London degenerates or satanically evil? Where is the opposition? Where are the Republicans in America and Tories in England?

I don’t know about the Tories in England, but the Republicans have pretty much been shut out of everything.  And the political equivalent of monkeys randomly typing are running our government.  Such was the wisdom of the American electorate.

Obama has chosen to surround himself with a host of Marxists.  It doesn’t bode well for out country’s economic or social future.
