Skip to comments.True Believer: Obama Was for Black Liberation Before He Was Against It
Posted on 06/26/2008 1:57:21 PM PDT by T.L.Sink
By this point, nobody can seriously suggest that Barack Obama was unaware of the hate-filled rhetoric emanating from the pulpit at Trinity United Church of Christ until it was, very recently, pointed out to him. Why Obama joined the church in the first place is interesting. Some of his defenders suggest he did so to advancce his career as a community organizer. The residents he needed to reach and the contacts he needed to make went to Trinity, so he went there too. In this view, Obama was merely being practical, not radical. Don't believe it. This was no matter of convenience or expediency. Obama's connection to the radical left politics espoused by Pfleger and Wright are broad and deep, and he largely approved of their political-theological outlook. Obama shared Wright's rejection of black "assimilation," and the pursuit of "middle-classness." His goal was not to repudiate religious radicalism but to channel its fervor into an activist organization. How do we know all this? We know it because Obama has told us.

So Obama wanted 2 radicals per state, one white, one black. Both religious leaders, both believers that the American government needs to be torn down and purged of the white race.
Sounds like a socialist revolution to me.
Bump for later reading!
The tagline says it all.
Wright: "In the 21st century, white America got a wake-up call after 9/11/01. White America and the Western world came to realize that people of color had not gone away, faded into the woodwork or just 'disappeared' as the Great White West kept on its merry way of ignoring Black concerns."
The Real Story Behind Rev. Wright's Controversial Black Liberation Theology Doctrine

(some key excerpts)
JOSE DIAZ-BALART, TELEMUNDO NETWORK: "Liberation theology in Nicaragua in the mid-1980's was a pro-Sandinista, pro-Marxist, anti-U.S., anti-Catholic Church movement. That's it. No ifs, ands, or buts. His church apparently supported, in the mid-'80s in Nicaragua, groups that supported the Sandinista dictatorships and that were opposed to the Contras whose reason for being was calling for elections. That's all I know. I was there.
I saw the churches in Nicaragua that he spoke of, and the churches were churches that talked about the need for violent revolution and I remember clearly one of the major churches in Managua where the Jesus Christ on the altar was not Jesus Christ, he was a Sandinista soldier, and the priests talked about the corruption of the West, talked about the need for revolution everywhere, and talked about 'the evil empire' which was the United States of America."
REV. BOB SCHENCK, NATIONAL CLERGY COUNCIL: "it's based in Marxism. At the core of his [Wright's] theology is really an anti-Christian understanding of God, and as part of a long history of individuals who actually advocate using violence in overthrowing those they perceive to be oppressing them, even acts of murder have been defended by followers of liberation theology. That's very, very dangerous."
SCHENCK: "I was actually the only person escorted to Dr. Wright. He asked to see me, and I simply welcomed him to Washington, and then I said Dr. Wright, I want to bring you a warning: your embrace of Marxist liberation theology. It is contrary to the Gospel, and you need, sir, to abandon it. And at that he dropped the handshake and made it clear that he was not in the mood to dialogue on that point."

Malik Zulu Shabazz, chairman of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense (NBPP):
"We are happy today to be standing side by side with the Nation of Islam. We believe, like the Nation of Islam and the Honorable Elijah Muhammad believe, in a nation of our own. We believe in a Black first philosophy and a Black Liberation Theology. We dont worry about the criticism. We love all of those who labored in the Panther Party from the 60s. Many are with us today."

From the article: REVOLUTIONARY HEROES
"On May 1st, May Day , the day of the gigantic Free Huey rally, two of Alioto's top executioners vamped on the brothers from the Brown Community who were attending to their own affairs. These brothers, who are endowed with the revolutionary spirit of the Black Panther Party defended themselves from the racist pig gestapo.
Pig Joseph Brodnik received his just reward with a big hole in the chest. Pig Paul McGoran got his in the mouth which was not quite enough to off him.
The revolutionary brothers escaped the huge swarm of pigs with dogs, mace, tanks and helicopters, proving once again that "the spirit of the people is greater than the man's technology."
To these brothers the revolutionary people of racist America want to say, by your revolutionary deed you are heroes, and that you are always welcome to our camp."

Article: REVOLUTIONARY HEROS (May 11, 1969):
Louis Farrakhan, at the Millions More Movement rally in DC, Oct 15, 2005: "...what Mao Tse Tung did was, he went to the cultural community, and they [Farrakhan spreads his arms beneficently] accepted his idea."..."Mao Tse Tung ... had a billion people whose lives he had to transform."..."the idea of Mao Tse Tung became the idea of a billion people, and China became a world power on the base of the culture and the arts community. If we had a ministry of art and culture in every city we'd create this movement [in the U.S.]."
It is often speculated that at the time he was seeking his street cred, he did not consider fully the ramifications of not only his associations with his church but those of other radicals. Once he was plucked from the streets of Chicage to become a national political figure, many were concerned with the associations. But, because of his color they felt he would be given the soft treatment. Those who began to promote him knew they could diffuse controversy by using race and subliminally appealing to those who may feel some degree of guilt, as Shelby Steele wrote in his book.
He is the worst possible candidate for the office of POTUS....
From Sept 11, 2001, New York Times article/interview with Obama associate and friend, William/Bill Ayers.
Article title: "No Regrets for a Love Of Explosives; In a Memoir of Sorts, a War Protester Talks of Life With the Weathermen"
"During his fugitive years, Mr. Ayers said, he lived in 15 states, taking names of dead babies in cemeteries who were born in the same year as he. He describes the typical safe house: there were usually books by Malcolm X and Ho Chi Minh, and Che Guevara's picture in the bedroom; fermented Vietnamese fish sauce in the refrigerator, and live sourdough starter donated by a Native American that was reputed to have passed from hand to hand over a century."
"Mr. Ayers, who in 1970 was said to have summed up the Weatherman philosophy as:
'Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, kill your parents, that's where it's really at,' is today distinguished professor of education at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
“He could have joined one of the many less radical black churches on the South Side of Chicago if that was all he needed to launch a political career.”
Oh, his political career would have still been “launched” but he would have summarily trounced by the Trinity-bred competition.
The elephant in this whole Obama thing is that he did exactly what was required of a black man to make it in Chicago politics, otherwise he would have likely been kicked to the curb.
Liberation theology is based on the belief that Jesus was a Marxist, or, since, Jesus came first, Marx was a christian. Liberation theology believes that capitalism is the root of all evil. And, black liberation theology believes that whitey capitalism is the root of all evil. From here we go to the dictatorship of the proletariat.
Behold the Evil Whitey!
Adios Trinity! I'm out of here for now!
This is my church, the one I never quit.
Instead of the change candidate, Hussein ObamaMessiaHamas, will be known as the Ooops Uh Flip-Flop Candidate, who couldn't tell the truth!
Quit your whining about my lies, you bitter white racists!
Who can say they know what Obama will do, what he will say or what he believes.
Now this is the whole reason to not vote for him. He will be anything he needs to be to get elected to the highest office in the land.
He is afraid to have a debate, and why-—because without his handlers he won't be able to compete.
He is all mouth when he has a prepared speech.
Without a prepared speech he is lost and will be certain to reveal what some of us already know. He does not have experience.
He wants to play the race card. That is a very old, worn out tactic. I don't know anyone that talks race.
He is so cocky—that is a cover.
Oh, you used my ‘Islam Obama’ I made! (Obama pointing finger) I’m flattered!
What you say is absolutely true, and as the posted article suggests, the proof comes from Obama himself - his very own words and actions. I still find it incredible that such an empty suit, extreme radical leftist has been nominated for president - and is actually leading in the polls!
Very appropriate post. In addition to all his other extreme Left words and deeds it’s astonishing that a serious candidate for President of the U.S. could have such associates as Ayers, an unrepentant terrorist. In any sane society this would disqualify one for City Council!
