As The Blogosphere Goes....

Here are a few interesting things to note in the blogosphere this fine Sunday morning:


Clinton Supporters Boycott Daily Kos

Obama wants a civil discourse within the Democratic party and the nation. But as we have seen from his supporters, there is anything but going on. It is now common knowledge that Obama's pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, is a man of hate and and hostile rhetoric. Now, we are seeing the blogs that support Obama, like the Daily Kos, alienating more people.


Wright Leaves Obama Campaign

Obama's racist minister has left the African American Religious Leadership Committee in the campaign. Wright's presence is one thing. But I wonder, how many past candidates have utilized such a committee?


Obama Attempts To Distance Himself From Wright

Nice try, but is it a little too late for mainstream America?

From Obama's statement comes this area worth some scrutiny:

The statements that Rev. Wright made that are the cause of this controversy were not statements I personally heard him preach while I sat in the pews of Trinity or heard him utter in private conversation.


Sounds good, if you are naive or a hypocritical spinster. But that's not exactly true. In fact, let's take a look at what Rich Lowry has found from Obama's book.


China Crushing Tibetan Protests

China should walk gingerly here. If they crack down with brutal force, there may be a huge boycott of the Olympics, a la the 1980 Moscow games. It would be a shame to waste all that money and have rich nations that can boost an economy, stay home.

I may be missing something here, but alienation isn’t how one wins an election. Normally, and I mean to suggest that if Hillary Clinton’s pastor exhibited this behavior, then I’d suggest she needs to go ahead and bow out of the contest. With Obama, I’m not sure. I think it is a mistake, but plainly a fact, that Obama gets a “pass” because, as Feraro said, he is black. This is the “new double standard” in society.

Obama's racist minister has left the African American Religious Leadership Committee in the campaign.

As Lowry demonstrated in his article, Wright didn’t leave the campaign not soon enough. I think someone commented at my blog that Obama’s election to the Senate is partly because of Wright’s support and his ability to galvanize the black community. You see, this is the underlying problem — we should not have color-based communities. Mr. Obama should be a United States Senator, not a Black American Senator. He should want to be an American president, not a black American president. I must confess to you that this does sadden me. Obama is too liberal for me personally, but you see the issue is worse than mere politics; it means that he signed on to racial politics and (the sad part) I cannot be convinced that Obama seeks to unite America—not now.

Sounds good, if you are naive or a hypocritical spinster.

As you suggest, Obama now has to deal with the credibility issue. Will people believe his statement? I think it is fair to say that Obama supporters, and particularly black voters, will continue to support him. Those opposed to an Obama presidency will remain on their side of the fence. So the issue really only confronts the moderate (democratic) center. Now I’ll repeat an earlier prediction: If Obama wins the democratic nomination, this country will face a serious racial crisis, and if he loses to the GOP nominee, there will be street rioting from one end of this country to the other. The racists will by then have convinced this is a black/white thing, and even as much as Obama and McCain will attempt to play it down, the fact is people working behind the scenes are the real puppet masters.

China Crushing Tibetan Protests

Tibet isn’t the problem in China; it is Xinjiang Province – Muslim population, 22 million. If they wanted to develop a nuclear weapons test site, that would be the place (well, except for the Jet Stream).

There are many black people that are far better suited to unite the country, than Obama. Colin Powell is one such person that I think would be an American President, uniting the people. JC Watts is another. I'd even consider supporting Bill Cosby, based on the things I have heard from him over the years.

But Obama has signed onto an ideology that will only divide the nation deeper than it already is. Anytime a Louis Farrakhan is supportive of a candidacy, one must be suspicious.

//As you suggest, Obama now has to deal with the credibility issue. Will people believe his statement?//

Some will. Some have already anointed him as some chosen messiah-like figure that can do no wrong and it's high;y doubtful they will be swayed by him getting caught up in a lie. One thing they fail to understand is, all politicians lie. The phrase, a clean politician, must always be put into a certain relative perspective.

//Tibet isn’t the problem in China; it is Xinjiang Province – Muslim population, 22 million.//

Yeah, but it's easier to crush a peaceful insurgency like the one the Tibetan people are putting forth. China may have to learn the hard way, before they understand the ferocity of people that are willing to kill themselves to advance their causes.

In other news, Obama admitted he was a White Sox season ticket holder, but claimed he's "not really a fan."

Hehe.

On the one hand, what is preached at BHO's church is absolutely appalling. On the other hand, it's mainstream thinking in far-left circles and among the faculty in African-American Studies departments in colleges across America.

What's really interesting is how quickly both BHO and his racist church are acting to deny who they really are. The church has changed its website to remove the references to "Black values" and "renouncing of 'middleclassness'," etc. Rev. Wright - once prominent on BHO's website - has been completely erased.

Like we can't see a far-left kook from a mile a away.
