SOLO-US Op-Ed: Wave of Disinformation on Jeremiah Wright Overshadows the Issue
Submitted by atlascott on Tue, 2008-03-18 02:34
If John McCain regularly attended a church and considered his priest a spiritual advisor and a member of his campaign, and his priest said the following:
Barrack Obama is not qualified to be President. He doesn't understand white America. He never grew up in a white church. He never lived as a white man. He never had the experiences of a white man. He cannot be President.
This is a despicable, racist country. This is a country of poison and murder. This country is no different from al Qaeda. This country faked Pearl Harbor, etc.
... then the media would be all over John McCain. Every American from every walk of life would say--even though these are not McCain's words, HOW can McCain not know that these are the views of his spiritual advisor? HOW can he not know what his preacher is preaching? HOW can he regularly associate with him and not know, and probably share, a lot of his views? And do these views belong to a candidate for the office of the most powerful person in the world?
Such statements by a close associate would DESTROY a white candidate like McCain or Giuliani.
In the case of Obama, the entire liberal media has mobilized in defense of Barack Hussein Obama in a concerted effort the likes of which has never been seen.
The same tough questions a white politicians would get are not being presented to Obama.
Obama's apologists are suggesting that, (1) white folks don't understand black churches; (2) Wright's statements are taken out of context; and (3) Not everyone in the church agrees with the preacher, and they understand that these are just statements made in church--not applicable to the real world.
No more flagant hogwash has ever been applied to a candidate to whitewash a damning association with a bigot and a lunatic.
First, imagine what would happen if a white man told the media that blacks are against his position because they just don't understand white logic. This is a justificaiton out of some lunatic Nazi party How-To manual, with notions of racial logic, or some white supremacist movement with "white logic" being superior to or different from the "logic" of other races. Yet the media allows these apologists to proffer this nonsense unchallenged, and with a straight face, PRECISELY BECAUSE the apologists are black. America has been so indoctrinated into the notion that whites are automatically racist and wrong about all issues of race that no one has the intellectual or moral wherewithal to call these apologists evil liars to their faces. We are entering an era of a hell built with the bricks and mortar of multiculturalism and unearned white guilt.
Second, large swaths of Wright's speeches are generally available. This is not a single sentence or a short paragraph taken out of context. To Wright, Pearl Harbor was a conspiracy. The slave traders of 150 years ago are equivalent to the America of today. Every mistake ever made by this country is its defining principle--not freedom, justice, opportunity unmatched by any other nation in human history. Conspiracies against blacks are omnipresent. In short, if Wright were any other color, he would be unequivocally identified as the America-hating [enter ethnicity here]-supremacist--and utter crackpot--that he is. No one is misquoting him. No one is putting his words in a different context. His statements are what they are--bile-filled calls to action against all Americans who are not black. Again, reverse the color. If a white man made such proclamations, he would be immediately branded a dangerous supporter of hate crime, and a scary lunatic. Instead, Wright enjoys a high position in the black community. It does not matter that this man may once have been a Marine--he is as perverted and racist as they come. Not based on unfounded character assassination--but based on his own words. Despicable.
Third, it defies belief that Wright supporters and Obama apologists expect anyone to fall for the idea that Wright's lunatic diatribes are meant to be forgotten the moment they are uttered, are not to be taken seriously--they are just church-talk. Listen to the passion in his voice, and the large congregation he ministers to--he has drunk the Kool-Aid and is serving it to people by the hundreds and thousands. This guy is demented, and his message is one of pure, unadulterated evil and hatred. Whites are the source of all evil to this man. When Hitler wrote Mein Kampf, it was just words. But remember what Hitler did when he came to power--exactly what he said he would do. Wright is a proponent, not of a color-blind free country, but of a black-dominated, black-run, black-preferred country. Not a country for all, but a country for blacks, and a country where non-blacks, particularly whites, are punished for their skin color--because of the alleged sins of great grandfathers who were not even in the country at the time of slavery. THIS man is a role model, a preacher of the word of a Christian God, an advisor? And advisor of what? Hatred and destruction?
Yes, there was slavery. Yes, there was and is racism. And yes, even with all of that, a black man can be twisted, racist and evil. Wright is concrete proof.
As disgusting as Wright and his lunacy is, it is even more disgusting the extent to which mainstream media allows Barack Hussein Obama's apologists to spew their specious and false defense of the indefensible, unchallenged, all over the air waves. Geraldine Ferraro had it right--it IS because Hussein is black that he is getting this treatment.
