Dr. Ayers’ plans to radically reconfigure education into a totalitarian socialist paradigm are a matter of record.
What if a conservative attended church that takes the extreme positions that were expressed in Obama’s church during the twenty some years he attended Trinity? If Sen. McCain, for example, belonged to a church with a “white values” system and pastored by a radical leader that denounced Black America pointing to a Neo-Nazi like Timothy McVeigh as a role model, how would the press react?
As a matter of fact, McCain was endorsed by Pastor John Hagee and spoke some warm words for the evangelical pastor who has been very outspoken in favor of Israel and against every sort of anti-Semitism. Nevertheless, when Hagee expressed his theological viewpoint pertaining to the Jewish Holocaust in Nazi Germany (evidently in a way that resulted in the need for Hagee to apologize- which he did!) the press took Hagee’s words and crucified Sen. McCain such that the candidate was required to denounce Hagee.
Hagee was unwise to express himself as he did but in a football game we would say that the press was running interference for Obama on this play. Forgotten in the midst of all the denunciation and apologies is the fact that Hagee is a leader in the evangelical effort to tilt U.S. foreign policy in a decidely pro-Israel direction, while Rev. Wright has been praising Hamas and bestowing a “lifetime achievement” award on an anti-Semitic black rascist named Louis Farrakhan:
“For nearly 30 years, Louis Farrakhan has marked himself a notable figure on the extremist scene by making hateful statements targeting Jews, whites and homosexuals.
Farrakhan’s bigoted and anti-Semitic rhetoric has included statements calling whites “blue eyed devils” and Jews “bloodsuckers” that controlled the slave trade, the government, the media and various Black individuals and organizations. In 2006, he blamed Jews and Israel for the war in Iraq, for controlling Hollywood and for promoting what he considers immorality during his February Saviours’ Day address in Chicago.”
Some folks may think it is unfair to attack a politician because of his friends and associations. I guess we each have to decide for ourselves how important certain ties are. The idea that Obama has a new approach to leadership or is nonpartisan in some way is just not accurate.
I find myself very disturbed at these recent happenings. Because of people’s allegiance to Obama and willingness to follow him anywhere as he attempts to lead us out of this “situation” is a very scary thing, considering the direction he seems to be leading us…
Nobody is saying here that Obama believes what his pastor believes. So let me ask you this: does Obama need to say and do more on this? Does he need to speak out more forcefully on this or has he said enough?
Intelligent people like our President know what their Pastor believes and what he teaches. The church the President attended included outspoken rhetoric favoring a radical anti-American agenda on a regular basis. Also anti-Israel and anti-Jewish rhetoric! Nothing the President can say will change that this is part of who he is. Obama has very closely embraced Rev. Wright and his teachings in public and provided warm affirmations on many occasions.
