THE REAL BARACK OBAMA
Radical black theology pervades thinking
of those close to Democratic chief executive
Revelations regarding Barack Obama’s spiritual advisor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, have been splashed across media outlets far and wide. After Wright called our country “the U.S. KKK of A.” and said that blacks should sing “God Damn America” instead of God Bless America, an entirely new barometer is being used to gauge the Democratic front-runner.
Rev. Wright’s race-baiting and America-hating is based on a concept called “black liberation theology,” founded by James Cone, author of Black Power and Black Liberation. Cone’s extremist views are seen in the following rant:
Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him. The task of black theology is to kill gods who do not belong to the black community. Black theology will accept only the love of [a] God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy.
Mirroring his mentor, James Cone, Rev.Wright says of his church—the one Barack Obama has attended for 20 years—“We are African people, and remain true to our native land, the mother continent.” Now is it clear why Obama refuses to cover his heart during the Pledge of Allegiance or wear anAmerican flag pin on his lapel? His loyalties are not to the U.S.A.
Rev. Wright, who presented a lifetime achievement award to Louis Farrakhan in 2007, labeled blacks who boycotted the 1995 Million Man March “Oreos, house niggers, Uncle Toms, and a boatload of darkies who think in white supremacist terms.” By the way, Farrakhan has called whites “blue-eyed devils” and the “skunks of the planet.”
Wright blamed the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on America. “We as a white nation brought 9-11 down on ourselves because of our violent acts.” However, if Wright had any moral courage, he would have disclosed that 9-11 wasn’t the fault of innocent Americans, but was orchestrated by a cabal of Israel-first neo-cons within the Bush administration, as well as elements of the Mossad.
Even Obama’s wife, Michelle—who recently said, “for the first time in my adult lifetime I am really proud of my country”—sees the world in very stark black-versus- white terms. In her college thesis, she forwarded the premise that blacks trying to assimilate into white society are sellouts. “Separationists are more closely associated with the black lower class than are integrationists.”
She continued this thought: “Further integration and/or assimilation into a white culture or social structure will only allow me to remain on the periphery of society.” Michelle Obama’s misgivings are undeniably misguided, because in 2006 she earned nearly $275,000, while her husband is currently running for president. Evidently they are on the right part of the periphery.
Throughout the primaries, Barack Obama has been a blank slate. But now that his association with radical, extremist black-power racists is being revealed, Americans need to ask themselves if this is the type of man they want sitting in the White House. In a hypersensitive atmosphere where every instance of white racism is reported (both real and imaginary), Obama refuses to leave his overtly black racist Trinity United Church of Christ. Only after much pressure, and concerns about Wright, Particularly among Jewish voters, did Obama divorce himself from Rev. Jeremiah Wright, whose sermons inspired the title of his book, The Audacity of Hope. Obama calls for unity, change and a colorblind society, yet his connection to the divisive, Marxist-oriented theology of black liberation is disturbing.
Quotes from Obama’s Religious Mentor . . .
IN AN OFT-QUOTED SERMON, Rev. Jeremiah Wright—then a “sounding board” to soon-to-be President Barack Obama—said that the U.S. government “wants [black people] to sing God Bless America.” “No, no, no,” Rev. Wright exclaimed, “God Damn America!”
During the early days of Obama’s campaign, Wright has said that Obama “knows what it means living in a country and a culture that is controlled by rich, white people; Hillary would never know that. Hillary ain’t never been called a nigger.”
One video shows Rev. Wright speaking after Sept. 11. “We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans,” he said, “and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back to our own front yards.”
At a meeting with a Jewish group in Ohio, Sen. Obama had this to say: “I don’t think my church is actually particularly controversial.” He likened Wright’s views to those of “an old uncle” [one might hide under the stairs when guests arrive].
While the nationalist portion of Wright’s rhetoric may touch a positive chord with some, it is steeped in dangerously radical black liberationist communist theology which blames whites for the poor condition of many blacks in America today.
