As more information emerges about Barack Hussein Obama—although decidedly not from the mainstream media who diligently work to protect him—it has become patently obvious, to those who still have the ability to reason, that he is both a radical and a racist. It also now becomes obvious as to why Senator Obama chose the extremist Jeremiah Wright’s church. From his own pen—and contained within his books “Audacity of Hope” and “Dreams from My Father” —Obama strongly, if not unambiguously, agrees with the truly racist and anti-Semitic Wright. However, disseminating the truth about Obama is—as was to be expected from the Left—now being called “racist.” However, some in the Republican Party—most specifically John McCain—are also calling for more “gentle treatment” of this radical candidate for POTUS. Inexplicably, John McCain is even calling for the removal of Republican Ads that tell these truths about Candidate Obama.
Note to Senator McCain: Senator, it is NOT racist or “improper” to tell the truth about any candidate’s associations with terrorists, radicals and real racists. Rather, it is incumbent upon those who can to actually do it. People need to know for whom they are voting—including each candidate’s character.
The following writings belie Obama’s myriad protestations to the contrary. These are only a very few of Obama’s written comments that speak to his radical and racist views:
• From “Audacity of Hope”: “In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. I will stand with them [Muslims] should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” The problem here is that he doesn’t say of even infer ‘unless they are proven to be terrorists’. Instead, it is a blanket statement. Does Obama support all Muslims—even their Islamist brethren? Sounds like it to me.
• From “Dreams from My Father”: “To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students, the foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets.” Note: Obama unequivocally states “I chose my friends carefully”—most certainly these would also include Obama’s Pastor Jeremiah Wright, terrorist Weather Underground leader Bill Ayers and Obama’s church’s lauding and bestowing of awards of distinction to anti-American and anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. Note2: Obama still remains a member-in-good-standing of said church.
• From “Dreams from My Father”: “I ceased to advertise my mother's race [white] at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites” and I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mothers race.” Hmmm. This man has shown contempt for both his white Grandmother and his white Mother—just for being white. Question: This man claims to be a “uniter?” He has to be joking—right?
Furthermore, Obama has also slapped down those who trust in Christianity (giving rise to even more questions as to whether or not Obama really is Christian) and those who believe the US Constitution’s 2nd Amendment should remain when he said: “And it's not surprising then they [small town Pennsylvanians] get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.” Note: Obama truly is above the fray—as well as humans.
No, there is nothing racist, ignoble or inappropriate about bringing facts and truth into the public forum. I would argue that to not do so would be dishonorable and shameful. But, for those who try to suppress reality with their attempts at name-calling the truthsayers the dishonor and disgrace run deeply through their veins.
So, until Stalin is completely resurrected by these folks, let’s continue to flush them, their words and actions out. Shall we?
