Posted on 03/18/2008 9:57:26 PM PDT by americanophile
Bill Clinton, once hailed as Americas first black president, has been disavowed by a once adoring black community. Geraldine Ferraro has been accused of being a secret racist. Oprah Winfrey is labeled a feminist sell-out. The major campaigns eagerly pander to racial and socioeconomic groups, and try different combinations of divide and conquer strategies. Black Americans are for Obama, and overwhelmingly admit that its a vote based on race, women are for Clinton and overwhelmingly admit that its a vote on gender. The two campaigns eagerly fight to curry favor with Hispanics. The wealthy are targeted for income redistribution, the poor are promised free medicine, and free-market capitalism is under full-scale assault. A party who once railed against supposed voter suppression now openly practices it in key states, and a party whose name is synonymous with ideals of populist governance adopts a delegate system reeking of undemocratic elitism. For those who have long understood the American left, none of the bigotry, racism, divisiveness, extremism or elitism that is emblematic of the 2008 Democratic Presidential contest is surprising. To understand the modern Democratic Party, one must recognize that it is a party built on racial, economic and socio-ethno-centric divisions. It is a cynical party; a party that depends on a culture of victimhood and division that in turn generates the demand for governmental redress. Without division, without racism, without inequality, there can be no government programs to remedy them, no election year pledges to change society, no mission or great societal crusade to endlessly fight for - no modern Democratic Party. Change is the undeniable, mechanical, political nature of a so-called progressive party, and the disharmony wrought from a perception of inequality is its engine.
Obamas pastor, Jeremiah Wright is nothing more than a purveyor of disharmony, and sadly, far from atypical. Like the Democratic Party itself, he is a man dedicated to ginning up racial hatred, to sowing societal discord, and fostering ignorance as a means of creating a willing and motivated following. Like the liberal establishment at large, for Jeremiah Wright, race is both a spear and a shield. It provides cover for his own bigotry, hatred and apparent anti-American paranoia while at the same time supplying the very weapon to denigrate his country and foster the societal division needed to drive his wayward flock. Jeremiahs Wrights message is not the message of Christ, it is not the message of the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., it is not a message of peace, of reconciliation, or of hope.
The footage of Wright spewing hate-filled anti-American rhetoric was not the product of undercover video, or hidden cameras, they were excerpts from DVDs sold in his church gift shop. Far from slips of the tongue, or misconstrued remarks, they are messages Wright thoughtfully constructed and powerfully conveyed with all his rhetorical might. These are messages that Wright is proud of, that he
Looks like I may loose out this election cycle.
This is just an excerpt, here the link to the rest:
One can only hope, but I don’t trust those “believers” they are possessed by them. It is downright scary! If he is President of the United States, how on Earth am I going to salute him????? Gives me shivers down my spine. lol.
The footage of Wright spewing hate-filled anti-American rhetoric was not the product of undercover video, or hidden cameras, they were excerpts from DVDs sold in his church gift shop. Far from slips of the tongue, or misconstrued remarks, they are messages Wright thoughtfully constructed and powerfully conveyed with all his rhetorical might. These are messages that Wright is proud of, that he wanted others to see and hear, that he believes with conviction. Jeremiah Wright, believes that the United States government created the HIV virus to perpetrate genocide on people of color. He believes the U.S. government conspired to allow the Japanese to destroy Pearl Harbor. He believes that our country is controlled by rich white people, and describes his own nation as the U.S. of AmeriKKKa. He is a man who curses and asks God to damn America. On the Sunday following the 9/11 tragedies he used his pulpit to blame America for the crazed acts of 19 Saudi terrorists, claiming it was Americas chickens coming home to roost - an infamous line of the radical, black Muslim separatist leader Malcom X, and a forerunner of the virulently racist, anti-Semitic, and anti-American Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, whom Wright honored with a lifetime achievement award. Wright even traveled with Farrakhan to Libya to meet with terrorist leader Muammar el-Qaddafi. Wright has devoted his life to building a church committed to the Black value system and with a stated policy of commitment to Africa, not America. He has asked his followers to pledge allegiance to black values and proudly displays a document entitled the Black Value System that is so thoroughly racist that were one to substitute the word black for white it could have easily been authored by Josef Goebbels.
Wrights is a message of victimhood, paranoia and racism wedded to Marxist concepts of class warfare and societal struggle, it is born of the radical Liberation Theology of the 1960s and it has dominated much of the left and black America for decades. To the many however, who are ceaselessly fed a diet of anti-Americanism and division by their preachers, their political leaders in the Democratic Party, and a hopelessly biased entertainment industry and mainstream media, it is not even viewed as remarkable. So pervasive is this kind of divisive rhetoric on the left, and within the black community, that Donna Brazille, longtime Democratic strategist, admitted on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, Ive known Jeremiah Wright and actually Jeremiah Wright is one of the more moderate black preachers.
Under the best of circumstances, it would be difficult for Obama to distance himself from Wright, but once the deep connection between Wright and Obama is understood, it is impossible. Jeremiah Wright is Barak Obamas self described mentor! Wright has been Obamas pastor for twenty years, the man who married Michelle and Barak Obama and baptized their children. Obama credits Wright with leading him to Christ, and indeed, it was from one of Wrights sermons that Obama borrowed the title for his best-selling political book. In a final elevation, Obama even appointed Wright to an all-black religious leadership committee for his campaign for President of the United States.
Attempting to distance himself from Wright was inviting the press to dig further into the murky relationship between Wright and Obama and the radical teachings of their organization. An uncharacteristically unsure Obama took the stage before an overt display of American flags, designed to pay silent testament to Obamas true love of country, a country his wife described as downright mean, populated by a people whose souls are broken, and a country in which she has admittedly never had pride until her husbands late candidacy. Obama himself reversed his earlier statements that he had not been present during any of Wrights diatribes, and admitted to having personally heard controversial comments. Obama condemned the indefensible statements of Wright, but far from distancing himself from Wright, Obama reaffirmed their close connection, saying he could no more disown Wright than he could the black community. In what could be dubbed the race-bait and switch speech, Obama delivered hackneyed platitudes on racial disharmony in America, and sought to parlay the issue into credentials for why he alone could solve Americas racial and socioeconomic inequities. Obamas attempt to refocus the media spotlight away from his own apparent bigotry by imputing racism to all of America was pathetic. Indeed, Obama even stooped so low as to criticize his own grandmother for her alleged bigotry, a woman he admitted, greatly loved and sacrificed for him.
Far from saving Obamas political hide, the speech was a pitiable smoke and mirrors show that unmasked the real Obama. Inescapably, one must come to the conclusion that Obama either agrees with the teachings of his mentor, Jeremiah Wright, or alternatively that he joined the biggest church in his community for the sake of pure political advancement despite its overt radical racism and anti-Americanism. Obama is therefore either a radical, anti-American bigot or a man of pure political ambition, lacking significant conviction who continues to embrace a mentor with repugnant and indefensible views. In either event it is a devastating indictment of his personal beliefs and political ideals, a thorough evisceration of the core message of his campaign, and a political circumstance that makes Barack Obama unfit to serve as President of the United States.
'Cause the missus would have ripped his lungs out if he'd objected?
This is not the end of Obama...yet. I hope he gets the nomination as a seriously flawed candidate. He is so beatable now.
The guy is a genuine bonehead isnt he?
That is a point that needs to be stressed.
The expression of hate was not the momentary frustration of a man. It was a deliberate message that was packaged and sold.
Yes it’s well worth the read. I did go to the site and read the entire article. I recommend all to do so.
You've got to be taught
To hate and fear,
You've got to be taught
From year to year,
It's got to be drummed
In your dear little ear
You've got to be carefully taught.
You've got to be taught to be afraid
Of people whose eyes are oddly made,
And people whose skin is a diff'rent shade,
You've got to be carefully taught.
You've got to be taught before it's too late,
Before you are six or seven or eight,
To hate all the people your relatives hate,
You've got to be carefully taught!
Hillary is still far easier to beat because if she gets the nomination all that black rage will be directed at her!
No way could she win.
Can get much more boneheaded than him. He seemed so smooooth...but then someone scratched his surface. I’m just surprised the Clintons didn’t find and use the Wright stuff on him months ago.
Bump for bonehead Obama.
I think either dem is beatable now. If Obama doesn’t get the nomination because of the superdelegates going to Hill after this debacle, then there will be riots. Hillary would suffer a backlash from that voting block. If Obama does get the nomination, can you imagine what he will look like in a debate next to a POW that truly is proud of his country and loves this great land? Either way...the dems look to be losers! As of now...
If you guys win, you'll be saluting Hillary.
I’m kind of depressed about this now. He pulled off the spin today, the MSM is slurping it up, and the PRAVDA from now on will be “it’s old news” “he addressed it, get over it” and “ you are a racist for bringing it up”.
If the Clinton’s weren’t aware of this vile preacher and his close relationship to Nobama earlier then they have proved that they are damnably stupid and incompetent. Hannity has been saying that he has been pushing this for months. But be assured, if they have any hope left to capture the White House, they will be putting their opposition research to work to dig up a lot more.
