Disingenuous Obama!

December 8th, 2008

“Ok, So Barack Hussein Obama gave his watershed speech the other day, backtracking on an earlier comment that he had heard none of Jeremiah Wright’s incendiary speeches, while he personally sat in the pews. Lie #1. And he attempted to deflect the issue from the true issue of “Does Obama’s true beliefs reflect what Wright has been preaching?”, over the last 20 years from Wright, by making this a “race” issue, and not an issue around Wright’s, let’s see…

• Anti-American views
• Anti-Semitic views
• Anti-“rich White man” views
• Pro-Palestinian terrorists views
• Anti-American government views
• Pro-Farrakhan views

What Barack Hussein Obama would like us to forget is that this pastor who was (1) part of his “Christian Advisory Board”, who (2) married the Obamas, and who (3) baptized their children, and who (4) still provides spiritual advice to them. So we are to believe that Barack Hussein Obama knew this man for 20 years, and his preaching had no impact on his thinking? And in Obama’s speech, he referenced that he could “…no more disavow Rev Wright any more than he could disavow his grandmother”, referencing her past fear of Black men walking past her in the street. In effect Obama threw his grandmother under the bus for his own career! Mr. Obama, you can choose you pastor, but you don’t choose your grandmother, in case that helps you make a distinction!

And Obama attempted to throw Black churches under the same bus, by implying that these types of sermons are a de facto standard in Black churches around the country. Not in my church, Mr. Obama. The fact that Obama sat through these sermons and did NOTHING, speaks volumes. He didn’t have the backbone to confront Wright on his archaic views, so how does he think he can be president? By the way, the idea that Obama still thinks of churches as “Black and White” shows that he is a polarizing agent, and not indeed an agent of change. Churches are for the “communities” that they serve. Many “Black” churches have white parishioners, including Trinity United. Personally, I’d like to see most of these Black dinosaurs go away. Or better yet, extol the virtues of the Black community from a position of strength. With the exception of the Jews, Blacks have overcome some of the most dramatic historical events in history. We have survived slavery, and overcome the atrocities of racism for the most part. Is racism gone? No, and it will never be gone. There will always remain prejudices, many of which will devolve into racism. There is NEVER an absolute, when it comes to social issues. So let’s focus on the fact that despite all the obstacles that have been put in the way of Black progress, we overcame them. Now there are no excuses for not succeeding in America, period, exclamation point! Does the “platform” of Trinity Unity Church look to empower Blacks, and migrate thinking to self-sufficiency, and so on. Yes, a good things. But when the pastor of the church continually spews venom in his sermons, as if there is a “boogey man”, or in his case [quote] “rich white people” who are keeping us down, this is where I separate myself from him. The presidency is not about precedent. It is about qualifications. And there are many overt reasons in what has come to light in this situation, that demonstrate that Obama is not ready for prime time. But it is the “unknowns” that are even more scary, when you consider the amount of naiveté that he has demonstrated here, not to mention the outright lies for political expediency.”
