Barack Obama and Black Liberation Theology

Obama vs. Black Liberation Theology: no ‘unite’

Grant Swank
March 21, 2008

Since Barack Obama has exposed that Black Liberation Theology pits whites against blacks, he’s undercut the egocentric Black Lib strutters.

People like Jeremiah Wright have made money and pew numbers in frightening American blacks that whites are killing them off, per AIDS injections for instance.

Wrights of the movement have said that the “white value system” is the enemy. Therefore, whites are out to get the blacks.

Obama sat through tirade after tirade on that demonic doctrine. Now it’s out of the bag. But the Black Lib pushers are still going to want to keep their power clutch before the blacks before them.

Therefore, Black Libbers have split from Obama, the “Unite” messenger.

By the way, you don’t hear the repeated “Change” and “Unite” cry from Obama. Why? Because he’s blurred himself. The public is not sure of his profile. Who is he? What change would he bring about having been surrounded by so many “haters”?

Would whites be left out as Obama united blacks?

Would Black Libbers be left out as Obama clutches to his black self white groupies?

Obama himself displays a weak personality awareness. Dick Morris stated on TV news programs that Obama is not strong in making sound judgments. He sat through two decades of demonic theology and said nothing, per Morris.

Therefore, Morris concludes that he would not be quick to make crucial judgments if in the White House. He’s just not got it.

So who is Obama’s public anyway?

Black Libbers have been undercut by his call for “Unite.”

Whites have been informed that Obama is a part of a hate-white subculture.

There are actually some logical blacks who don’t buy into the anti-“white value system” and therefore don’t agree with Black Libbers.

Evangelicals have nothing to do with leftist Obama.

Moralist Catholics likewise have nothing to do with pro-choice Obama.

But for sure Obama has cut with Black Libbers who are making their dough and conceit levels pop with this divisive, unbiblical, screaming dogma like unto a cult.

Larry Elder On Barack Obama’s “Race” Speech – A Must Read Article

Political Night Train believes the following article by Larry Elder is a must read on the basis of Barack Obama’s values and beliefs. 

Obama: From Valiant to Victicrat Larry ElderThu Mar 20, 3:00 AM ET Billed as an “important speech about race,” presidential candidate Barack Obama condemned some of the remarks of his pastor, Jeremiah Wright. But Obama refused to denounce the man himself, considering him family. Commentators gushed over this “groundbreaking,” “stirring” speech about the “state of race relations in America.” Funny, some people actually thought that Obama might explain why he chose and attends a church led by a hateful, anti-Semitic, racist America-condemning pastor, a man whom Obama refers to as his “spiritual advisor.”Long before the blowup over Barack Obama’s pastor, I wrote about this angry, “Afrocentric” church in my new book, “Stupid Black Men: How to Play the Race Card — and Lose.”“Barack Obama,” I wrote, “attends Chicago’s popular Trinity United Church of Christ. He described its minister, Reverend Jeremiah A. Wright Jr., as his ‘spiritual mentor.’ On its Web site, Trinity United Church of Christ describes itself: ‘We are an African people, and remain “true to our native land,” the mother continent, the cradle of civilization. … It is God who gives us the strength and courage to continuously address injustice as a people, and as a congregation. We constantly affirm our trust in God through cultural expression of a Black worship service and ministries which address the Black Community.’“Consider the grief President George W. Bush attracted when he gave a speech at Bob Jones University, an institution that formerly banned interracial dating. Imagine a Republican attending a church that professed ‘Caucasian-centric’ Bible readings. According to an article in Rolling Stone, Reverend Wright said, ‘Racism is how this country was founded and this country is still run! … We are deeply involved in the importing of drugs, the exporting of guns and the training of professional KILLERS. … We believe in white supremacy and black inferiority and believe it more than we believe in God. … We conducted radiation experiments on our own people. … We care nothing about human life if the ends justify the means! And. And. And! GAWD! Has GOT! To be SICK! OF THIS SHIT!’“Jeremiah Wright also helped to organize the Million Man March, spearheaded by the anti-Semitic, homophobic, anti-Catholic Minister Louis Farrakhan. Wright also, accompanied by Farrakhan, visited Muammar el-Qaddafi of Libya. In an interview about whether this kind of activity might hurt Obama’s prospects, Wright said, ‘When his enemies find out that in 1984 I went to Tripoli (to visit Qaddafi) with Farrakhan, a lot of his Jewish support will dry up quicker than a snowball in hell.’“At the first Sunday service following the terrorist attacks of 9/11, Wright preached that the attacks were a consequence of violent U.S. policies. And four years later, Wright wrote that the 9/11 attacks were proof that ‘people of color had not gone away, faded into the woodwork or just disappeared as the Great White West went on its merry way of ignoring Black concerns.'”Wright’s musings — part David Duke, part Louis Farrakhan and part Moe from the Three Stooges — include the following:— “We started the AIDS virus. … We are only able to maintain our level of living by making sure that Third World people live in grinding poverty. …”— “God damn America … for killing innocent people. God damn America for threatening citizens as less than humans. God damn America as long as she tries to act like she is God and supreme.”— “We bombed Hiroshima. We bombed Nagasaki. And we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye. We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant because of stuff we have done overseas is now brought back into our own backyard. America is chickens coming home to roost.”— “The government lied about inventing the HIV virus as a means of genocide against people of color. The government lied.”— “Barack 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. Hillary has never had a people defined as a nonperson.”Obama gave a soaring speech at the Democratic National Convention in 2004, in which he said, “There is not a liberal America and a conservative America. There is the United States of America. There is not a black America and a white America and Latino America and Asian America. There is the United States of America. … We are one people, all of us pledging allegiance to the stars and stripes, all of us defending the United States of America.”Once upon a time, Obama actually told “60 Minutes'” Steve Kroft, “I think if I don’t win this race, it will be because of other factors. It’s gonna be because I have not shown to the American people a vision for where the country needs to go that they can embrace.”Oh, well.

Barack Obama – His Core Values & Beliefs, Part 2

There is no denying that Senator Obama gave a very good ‘race’ speech with what Political Night Train calls “surface validity”, that is, it looks good on the surface, its when you dig into the core that you find problems.  Political Night Train is now questioning the basis of Obama’s core values and beliefs and whether they are the values and beliefs we want in a President.  Certainly Senator Obama has plenty of “surface validity” to be President, but does he have the inner values and beliefs we want in a President.  Americans do not deserve another President aka Bill Clinton, with an outer persona that looks good to many people (he was bubba to some, a black man to others), but with an inner core that no one knows.  Apparently Bill Clinton had no inner core of moral values, at least none that we would want to pass on to our children.  One wonders then, what core values are Barack and Michelle Obama passing on to their children?  Are they the beliefs and values you would pass on to your children?  There are many parents in this country who were raised in racist households, black and white.  Yet, at some point, as parents, they made the break, and overtly decided that they would not raise their own children in a hate filled, racist family, and church environment.  This is truly where racism begins to die off, and you can see the effects with the twenty-something’s that are now saying “race does not matter”.  Yet, Obama is not offering them the bridge to a racism free society.  No, he’s offering then explanations as to why people like Jeremiah Wright should get a free pass.  Sorry Barack, but I don’t want my children attending Sunday School with your children, because you’ve passed on the wrong set of values and beliefs. Gil Troy is right when he asserts in his article,(my bold) Here, then, remains the Obama campaign’s great mystery. Many Americans want to believe, to trust that he is what he purports to be, that his gift for words will translate into a genius for governance. But the questions cropping up are not simply about his inexperience but his inaction. He never confronted Jeremiah Wright. He sat silently by as the United Church of Christ to which he belongs passed a resolution advocating divestment from Israel.

Obama’s political rise has been launched on the wings of Americans’ hopes that the healers will defeat the haters. His political progress would be more sure if he could point to actions backing up this rhetoric, to moments when he confronted demagogues and healed rifts. Barack Obama is not too young to have had the opportunity to prove whether he stands by his statements. Americans have the right to ask what he has done when facing the world’s Jeremiah Wrights and Louis Farrakhans. Obama’s worst, and best, moments
By Gil Troy   March 22, 2008

On Tuesday, Senator Barack Obama’s speech on race in America tried to quell the controversy over his America-bashing, race-baiting, Israel-hating pastor, Reverend Jeremiah Wright. For days, video clips of Wright spewing his poison threatened to neutralize Obama’s populist magic. Until Tuesday, the controversy showed Obama at his worst. His response to his pastor’s demagoguery was mealy-mouthed and disingenuous. It was impossible to believe Obama’s Clintonesque claim of ignorance, that he never “sat in the pews” during one of Wright’s wrongheaded riffs. And Obama’s failure over a twenty-year relationship to criticize his mentor’s venom stirred doubts about Obama’s judgment, patriotism, and commitment to the unity he celebrates. Yet once again, Illinois’ rookie Senator hit a grand slam with two strikes against him. Obama’s speech was thoughtful, thought-provoking, rich, complex, effective, poetic, and inspiring. Read the rest of this excellent article at http://web.israelinsider.com/views/12729.htm

Obama and Wright-wing racism

Obama and Wright-wing racismMost of the media and their fellow liberals were positively giddy over Barack Obama’s speech Tuesday, all but comparing it to the Sermon on the Mount. I won’t deny it was a masterful piece of oratory — the man can be spellbinding — but when you stop to consider what Sen. Obama was really doing up there on the podium, invoking the specter of slavery and Jim Crow and the era of “whites only,” it becomes clear that it was a con job designed to make the voters as giddy as he knew his worshippers in the submissive media would be. Read the rest of this great article by Mike Regan, here http://www.baxterbulletin.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080322/OPINION01/803220343/1014/OPINION

Is This Another Bash-America Quote From Jeremiah Wright?

Is the following quote from Barack Obama’s pastor, Rev Jeremiah Wright?

“God didn’t call America to engage in a senseless, unjust war. . . . And we are criminals in that war. We’ve committed more war crimes almost than any nation in the world, and I’m going to continue to say it. And we won’t stop it because of our pride and our arrogance as a nation. But God has a way of even putting nations in their place.  And if you don’t stop your reckless course, I’ll rise up and break the backbone of your power.”

No, it wasn’t Jeremiah Wright.  This is what Martin Luther King said about the Vietnam War at his own Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta on Feb. 4, 1968:

Gov Bill Richardson Slams Hillary Clinton

New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson has endorsed Barack Obama, and is now suffering the fallout from the Clinton campaign.  Before the South Carolina primary Richardson was seen by many as a potential running mate for Hillary.  During every Democratic debate in which Richardson participted, he engaged in world class suck-up to Hillary.  Remember, Richardson was Bill Clinton’s Secretary of Energy and Ambassordor to the UN, and has the foreign policy experience needed to offset Hillary’s lack of experience.  But it seems Hillary wouldn’t give Richardson the time of day.  Almost at the same time as Richardson’s endorsement, the Obama campaign began to hammer at Hillary’s character, saying that she lacks the qualities to be President.  In particular, the Obama campaign called into question Hillary’s honesty and how she is misleading the public on her experience.  As Political Night Train has said in the article, “How Obama Wins”, this is the way to beat down Hillary.  Daily attacks on her character will take their toll.  See the Political Night Train article on “How Hillary Wins” for what her strategy should be. 

(CNN) – Bill Richardson criticized a Clinton campaign adviser Friday for suggesting his endorsement of Barack Obama is insignificant.

 

“I resent the fact that the Clinton people are now saying that my endorsement is too late because I only can help with Texans — with Texas and Hispanics, implying that that’s my only value,” the New Mexico governor told CNN’s John King.

 

“That’s typical of some of his (Clinton’s) advisers that kind of turned me off.”

 Earlier Friday, Clinton campaign senior strategist Mark Penn said he thought Richardson’s endorsement came too late to make an impact.

Obama – Basis for His Values & Beliefs

Larry Elder writes an interesting article, “Obama: From Valiant to Victicrat”

Larry comments, ” Funny, some people actually thought that Obama might explain why he chose and attends a church led by a hateful, anti-Semitic, racist America-condemning pastor, a man whom Obama refers to as his “spiritual advisor.”

 Another good read is Larry Elder’s book, “Stupid Black Men: How to Play the Race Card — and Lose.”

 And more from the article,

“Jeremiah Wright also helped to organize the Million Man March, spearheaded by the anti-Semitic, homophobic, anti-Catholic Minister Louis Farrakhan. Wright also, accompanied by Farrakhan, visited Muammar el-Qaddafi of Libya. In an interview about whether this kind of activity might hurt Obama’s prospects, Wright said, ‘When his enemies find out that in 1984 I went to Tripoli (to visit Qaddafi) with Farrakhan, a lot of his Jewish support will dry up quicker than a snowball in hell.’Larry characterizes Wright’s rantings as, “part David Duke, part Louis Farrakhan and part Moe from the Three Stooges “
