Word on the street is that Obama has resigned his membership in the Trinity United Church of Christ. I suppose this is a demonstration of his superior judgement? After consorting with vile Black Nationalist and neo-Marxist garbagemen for almost half his life, this guy thinks he can just walk away from it without a question? Pretty audacious. I wonder if there’s any so-called reporter worth his salt who has the balls to ask Obama why he is leaving such a pit of racist nonsense now.
The Big Media propagandists are already thinking of ways to suppress this.
Lynn Sweet has a report in the Chicago Sun-Times about David Axelrod’s further interest in demagoguery —this time in the person of a self-loathing radical Catholic priest (emphasis mine):
WASHINGTON — The Rev. Michael Pfleger’s “I’m white! I’m entitled … black man stealing my show” outburst about Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton from the pulpit of the Obama family church, Trinity United Church of Christ, created a political problem for likely Democratic nominee Sen. Barack Obama that won’t disappear.
Pfleger’s crusades against guns, prostitution, porn and tobacco have made good copy for years for a fairly admiring local press corps hooked on cheering for the underdog, the poor and the powerless.
Pfleger is the subject of a documentary being made by Chicago-based David Axelrod, Obama’s top strategist. On Friday, Axelrod told me in an e-mail that the film project has “been dormant for much of the last two years due to other commitments.”
Are you shitting me? Do you know how much more effort this association will require to be suppressed by Big Media? When your campaign’s chief strategist is interested in validating the psychotic rants of a disgusting hater like Pfleger, it says something about what you and him and your whole crew think of America: it says you hate this country and wish to make it over into something else.
For-profit news dissemination is a kind of abomination.
I thought it was a joke when I first read about it at Jim Hoft’s blog, but the Speaker of the House recently told a newspaper in her hometown:
Well, the purpose of the surge was to provide a secure space, a time for the political change to occur to accomplish the reconciliation. That didn’t happen. Whatever the military success, and progress that may have been made, the surge didn’t accomplish its goal.
And some of the success of the surge is that the goodwill of the Iranians-they decided in Basra when the fighting would end, they negotiated that cessation of hostilities-the Iranians.
Why is our Speaker of the House giving props to the Iranian government? WTF? How do these Leftist idiots live with themselves? She and Obama must be planning a surrender tour.
Barack Obama was wrong to put it on the street that John McCain’s proposal that they go together to Iraq is a political “stunt.” Bad move, dude. As Paul Mirengoff points out:
The question of visiting Iraq won’t go away if Obama is elected, either; in fact it will become more acute. If Obama hopes to retain respect from our armed forces and their leaders, he will have to visit Iraq before he abandons the country. But, depending on the situation in Iraq and what Obama learns on a visit, he could lose this respect if he abandons the country following a visit.
It is typical liberal cant that everybody supports the troops even if they don’t all support the mission. This is Obama’s line, too, usually accompanied by assertions of his own wisdom in opposing the War for Iraq ab initio. But when he has to face our troops along with McCain, how far do you think his anti-war rhetoric will fly? Those men and women have given a lot to see their efforts finally succeed —and they are, no matter how much the hippies wish we would be defeated. We have a strategic security interest in helping Iraq become a fully-functioning country and ally. This guy wants to withdraw and walk away from the future of a stable Middle East?
Obama will never become President.
One of the jobs Obama claims as part of his curriculum vitae is “community organizer.” What the hell does that even mean? It sounds like a euphemistic way of saying “shit-stirrer.”
I don’t like what’s happening inside the Democratic Party. I think they’ve gone plum loco. Why couldn’t they have gone with a nominee whom America actually knows?
Now we have McCain rejecting John Hagee’s endorsement with Hagee withdrawing it simultaneously, which is a rather thoroughgoing end to a superficial and uncomfortable association. One can almost imagine that the straw that broke the camel’s back —the revelation of Hagee’s supernatural explanation for Hitler’s genocidalism— was a deliberately occasioned break.
Consider: McCain doesn’t need Hagee because any conservative worth his salt —be he blue collar, Christian, or a suit— knows only one thing: Barack Hussein Obama must not become President. They know this is worse than when goddamned John Kerry made a run at it. An Obama administration will swamp the courts and schools and the bureaucracy with liberals and Leftists like you ain’t never seen before, jack. They’ll wreck Iraq, uncork Iran, and erase the border with Mexico. They’ll nationalize and unionize and put evangelicals to rout.
Instead of giving a damn about Hagee, what is McCain saying? He’s saying to certain idiots in the Republican Party that they best sound off like they love his candidacy because the alternative is worse. He’s also saying to these idiots that they need to bring the right message to the country and get off his ass. And I’m saying that, too: quit trying to prove your Republican bona fides to each other and focus on what a fucking disaster an Obama Administration would be. McCain is your only hope, idiots, so quit talking smack about him and get in line.
There’s a picture of Barack Hussein Obama making the rounds today of him walking across a tarmac with a copy of Fareed Zakaria’s new book The Post-American World. Looks like he’s about halfway through it.
I certainly don’t object to people reading any published thing they want, but at the level this man is now, it is unquestionably a mistake for him to even be seen reading something that suggests a non-hegemonic America.
I suspect these sorts of blunders will continue to burst and tumble out of this man because they are held so unconsciously; he doesn’t know to suppress what he doesn’t know he should.
Anyone who compares John McCain’s pursuit and acceptance of John Hagee’s endorsement to Barack Obama’s decades-long association with and apprenticeship to Jeremiah Wright is an idiot. These relationships are entirely different in both scope and scale and to suggest otherwise is to practice the rankest sort of intellectual dishonesty.
Because he disrespects regionalism in America. I suspect I could kick his ass in an argument about the Electoral College because you know full well that he doesn’t understand the evolution of this great nation from colonies to states. He understands cosmopolitanism —and when he went to get up some group identity? He grabbed a handful of angry Black Nationalism masquerading as Black Liberation theology masquerading as just some other church. And he’s held on to it, so far as I know, up to this very moment. Twenty years of that outlandish, conspiracy-minded horseshit? He’s a liar to say he didn’t know what Wright was preaching. And I have no doubt that the proof of that is nearly here.
Barry, you don’t understand your own country. It is that very ignorance that has given you what your very own baptist has called the audacity of hope —past the point of reason and warrant alike.
Congratulations to Hillary. I especially liked how she gave such prominence to Ted Kennedy at the top of her speech tonight. I don’t like Ted Kennedy as a politician or even as a man, but I must respect his place in American History. It is a large and important place. I wish him and his loved ones peace and commiseration.
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews is an almost incredible idiot. He takes issue with Hillary’s statement in her victory speech just now in Kentucky about being better “positioned” than Obama to win in November —and then goes off on how white the audience is behind her and how such a lack of diversity is usually better stage-managed than that.
Huh? He can’t accept Hillary’s terrible cynicism about issues of electability —which is actually very insightful— but takes it as a matter of course that political campaigns manipulate their candidates’ imagery? His hero Obama routinely appears with a caucasoidal backdrop to beat the band —and nobody questions that.
Matthews and Olbamamann are nauseating. I can’t wait for their meltdown once they realize what an albatross they’ve got around their necks.
