Credit Rich Lowry with the political zinger of the year: “In his hour of political need, Barack Obama went to his base - the media.” LOL I feel like emailing that one to all of Obama’s pompous, herd-mentality cheerleaders at the Seattle Times and Seattle P.I.
In short, he sees the world much as Rev.Wright does. It is just that with Krauthammer the actors assigned to the role of oppressed and oppressor are different.
The only difference between the two is that Krauthammer's paranoid worldview is based only on cultural or historic memory rather than on personal experience. Wright experienced racism all his life. Krauthammer, who grew up in Canada and was educated at McGill and Harvard, did not suffer the evils inflicted on Jews throughout history although he did read about them.
This is not to say that Jews and other minorities are not entitled to identify with the historic oppression of their people. However, that is rather different than actually experiencing oppression. Wright's anger and paranoia is legitimate in the sense that he came by it honestly.
Krauthammer's is more like traditional racism. It's just hate.
Your anti-Semitism is showing.
It’s incredibly arrogant that Obama is claiming to bring the issue of race out of the closet and into the public arena. Haven’t we been talking about race as a society for the last 50 years?
WOW! MM, I never thought I’d see the day when you’d give up worship of your goddess, Hillary, to stump for Obama.
Does Hillary know about this?
It’s so nice to have our own Moonbat Mascot here at FR! ;)
Obama fell into the trap. He is now the Black candidate for President similar to Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. However, the timing helps him since Hillary must now steal the nomination at the convention, which is highly doubful. So now both parties have deeply flawed candidates for President, one of whom will be President.
Pipe down and go back to DU, you moron.
***Wright’s anger and paranoia is legitimate in the sense that he came by it honestly.***
Then, he has no right to call himself a Christian and lead a congregation. And, that is granting that what you say is true.
The Lord: But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.
Wright: God Damn America
Obama’s “spiritual” father.
Better. ; )
Now he's just passing it along to new generations.
As with GWB and Dick, perhaps you are right for Vice President Cheney is the substance while President Bush is the Icon.
That is doable indeed!
You beat me to it.
This is indeed the gift that just keeps giving.
The sweet looking lady with the patriotic(not) sign will
certainly help Obama’s candidacy.
One thing I haven’t seen mentioned yet.
In the black community, these are the good guys.
There are also the rappers and their audience,the
pimps and pushers,and all those special people that fill the prisons that
Wright(I can’t call him reverend) has
said we built for just this purpose(and for once he
lived up to his name).
And didn’t we just love having to do it.
I think if BO becomes POTUS, we are going to see race wars in this nation. If people will knowingly put a racist like this in office, they are willing to support his hatred and vengence.
Obamas spiritual father.
As Obama's political workers work around the clock to find a way to make this situation a positive for Obama's election endeavors. ; )
