Obama’s Patriotism Questioned
Illinois Congressman’s inner circle steeped in anti-American ideology
By Victor Thorn
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 God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy.
Mirroring his mentor, James Cones, 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 an American 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, or divorce himself from Rev. Jeremiah Wright, whose sermons inspired the title of his book, The Audacity of Hope.
On a daily basis, Obama calls for unity, change and a color-blind society, yet his hypocrisy is glaringly apparent. Is this divisive, Marxist-oriented theology of black liberation the direction we want our nation to be heading?
If Americans want truth in government, it’s time to discard political correctness and start calling a club a club and a spade a spade.
