The Obama “Race Speech” Did Nothin’ For Me, How ‘Bout You?

By Debbie Schlussel
Readers are asking me why I haven’t commented on the race speech” delivered by Barack Hussein Obama, this morning (video here). Well, because he didn’t say anything that really addressed or assuaged me or anyone with any reason on his historically racist pastor. He basically said nothing.
But here’s what he did say:
* On Rev. Jeremiah “Shabbos” Wright’s views:

A profoundly distorted view of this country – a view that sees white racism as endemic and that elevates what is wrong with America above all that we know is right with America.

Well, Duh. We already knew that. What he didn’t say is why he sat by for those views for years, even though he admitted to the New York Times and others that he knew about it. Hello . . .? That’s the issue. Unaddressed. Can’t be addressed.
* He claims that we are distorting Wright’s comments (How can you distort the statement, “G-d Damn America!”? I’m not sure.) And he gives what I call the Hezbollah/HAMAS/Hitler excuse–that Wright is okay because, hey, he helps the poor. B-F-D:

Caricatures being peddled by some commentators [distort Wright’s appeal]. The man I met more than 20 years ago is a man who helped introduce me to my Christian faith, a man who spoke to me about our obligations to love one another, to care for the sick and lift up the poor . . . . [Wright] is a man who served his country as a U.S. Marine . . . and who for over 30 years led a church that serves the community by doing G-d’s work on Earth by housing the homeless, ministering to the needy.

Um, attacking Jews, Whites, America, etc., and defending Cuba, Palestinian terrorists, and Muslim 9/11 hijackers is NOT G-d’s work. Sorry. Never was. Never will be.
* MOST IMPORTANT PART: Obama refused to disown Rev. David Duke, er . . . Grand Wizard Wright. This should disqualify him from the White House, PERIOD:

I can no more disown him than I can disown the black community. I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother–a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me, a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world, but a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street. . . . These people are a part of me. And they are a part of America, this country that I love.

This is a giant, “F-U, America.” Please take note of it.

I beg of you, my fellow Michigan readers, to vote in the Michigan mail-in revote for the Democratic primary and vote for Cankles. As I said, I will. Even Hillary, is not as scary as this man. She’s scary, but he’s far more so.
The bottom line is that he knew of Rev. Wright’s racism, he went along with it, and even now that he’s been caught, he won’t disown him.

I don’t know, I think Osama…I mean Obama might actually pull it off. A lot of people I’ve spoken to today actually seem fooled (maybe WANT to be fooled?)by his little speech.

krishna69 on March 18, 2008 at 2:21 pm

Watched it and it did nothing to convince me that Obama is not a follower of a racist, jew-hating pastor.

Andrew Ian Dodge on March 18, 2008 at 2:23 pm

What are you so scared of, Debbie? Do you really believe that Obama, the son of a white woman and black man, raised by white grandparents, actually harbors racism and hatred deep in his heart? That he would actually inflict danger to America?
No, Obama won’t disown the man of God who inspired Obama to find Christ. Denounce, yes. Repudiate, yes. Call his controversial views wrong, unequivocally. But he can’t disown Wright. I have no problem with that. And I continue to find Obama’s candor incredibly refreshing and honorable.

Audacious on March 18, 2008 at 2:25 pm

BARACK?S SPEECH:
And yet words on a parchment would not be enough to deliver slaves from bondage, or provide men and women of every color and creed their full rights and obligations as citizens of the United States. What would be needed were (WHITE, CONSERVATIVE, NORTHERN-STATE) Americans in successive generations who were willing to do their part (AND PAID A HORENDOUS PRICE IN THE COST OF SOME 360,000 UNION ARMY LIVES, NOT TO MENTION CONSIDERABLE TREASURE)</b?? through protests and struggle, on the streets and in the courts, through a civil war
And yet, it has only been in the last couple of weeks that the discussion of race in this campaign has taken a particularly divisive turn, WHEN MY WIFE MICHELLE, CANDIDLY ADMITTED THAT FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HER ADULT LIFETIME, SHE WAS REALLY PROUD OF HER COUNTRY??.
The document they produced was eventually signed but ultimately unfinished. It was stained by this nation?s original sin of slavery, a question that divided the colonies and brought the convention to a stalemate until the founders chose to allow the slave trade to continue for at least twenty more years, and to leave any final resolution to future generations.
Of course, I sincerely hope none of you ever learn what I and many other Blacks and Muslims know and do our best to keep this information hidden, that, ACCORDING TO ROBERT DAVIS BETWEEN 1 MILLION AND 1.25 MILLION EUROPEANS WERE CAPTURED BY BARBARY PIRATES AND SOLD AS SLAVES IN NORTH AFRICA AND OTTOMAN EMPIRE BETWEEN THE 16TH AND 19TH CENTURIES.
Moreover, the coastal villages and towns of Italy, Portugal, Spain and Mediterranean islands were frequently attacked by them and long stretches of the Italian, Portuguese and Spanish coasts were almost completely abandoned by their inhabitants; after 1600 Barbary pirates occasionally entered the Atlantic and struck as far north as Iceland.
What I would also want to keep quiet is the fact that the ATLANTIC SLAVE TRADE PEAKED IN THE LATE 18TH CENTURY, WHEN THE LARGEST NUMBER OF SLAVES WERE CAPTURED ON RAIDING EXPEDITIONS INTO THE INTERIOR OF WEST AFRICA. THESE EXPEDITIONS WERE TYPICALLY CARRIED OUT BY AFRICAN KINGDOMS, SUCH AS THE OYO EMPIRE (YORUBA), KONG EMPIRE, KINGDOM OF BENIN, KINGDOM OF FOUTA DJALLON, KINGDOM OF FOUTA TOORO, KINGDOM OF KOYA, KINGDOM OF KHASSO, KINGDOM OF KAABU, FANTE CONFEDERACY, ASHANTI CONFEDERACY, ARO CONFEDERACY AND THE KINGDOM OF DAHOMEY.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slave_trade#North_Africa
BET YOU DID NOT KNOW THAT EUROPEANS RARELY ENTERED THE INTERIOR OF AFRICA
A Little Poetic License Here, Although The Facts Speak For Themselves And Yet, Something You Never Hear Any Blacks Address When They Are Engaging In Their Pity- Party, Reparation Polemical, Or In Attack Mode.

Michael on March 18, 2008 at 2:25 pm

I’ll be happy to vote for Obama if it will p*** you off, Debbie.

Jim M on March 18, 2008 at 2:59 pm

Obama is the anti-Christ. A veritable smooth talking snake in the grass. A champion fraud and liar. And yet everyone here in Europe thinks he’s bona fide and clean. All idiots brainwashed by al-Beeb etc, lulled into false hope for some kind of saviour who will bring peace and justice to the world. Purlease!

johndoe on March 18, 2008 at 3:10 pm

Well Debbie – there’s Hillary’s embracing of Suha and her reported disparagements of Jews. So we have two candidates in the Democratic Party incapable of recognizing evil. They’re both very scary. If it was up to people like us, neither of them would be suitable for the White House. That’s how it should be.

NormanF on March 18, 2008 at 3:40 pm

What I heard from his speech was blah blah blah, vote for me, blah blah blah, stupid white okie dokes will eat this shite up, blah blah blah vote for me

wolf2012 on March 18, 2008 at 3:53 pm

I think you are being too hard on Hussein Obama. Why I heard a rumor that he will appoint Rodney King as his director of communications to help us all get together. How can anyone criticize a man who would do such a great thing?

c f on March 18, 2008 at 4:02 pm

He did address it. Directly. You’re just ignoring the distinction because it isn’t convenient to your argument.
“For some, nagging questions remain. Did I know him to be an occasionally fierce critic of American domestic and foreign policy? Of course. Did I ever hear him make remarks that could be considered controversial while I sat in church? Yes. Did I strongly disagree with many of his political views? Absolutely – just as I’m sure many of you have heard remarks from your pastors, priests, or rabbis with which you strongly disagreed.
But the remarks that have caused this recent firestorm weren’t simply controversial. They weren’t simply a religious leader’s effort to speak out against perceived injustice. Instead, they expressed a profoundly distorted view of this country – a view that sees white racism as endemic, and that elevates what is wrong with America above all that we know is right with America…”

stormhit on March 18, 2008 at 4:07 pm

wow, just yesterday, the day before that, the day before that, and the weeks before that, he flat out stated that he has never in 20 years heard any of wright’s firey speeches condemming America. But now, “Did I ever hear him make remarks that could be considered controversial while I sat in church?” YES So are we to believe what you have stated over and over again in the past, or what your speech writers wrote for you yesterday.
I distinctly remember him denying something else for weeks, NAFTA and the Canadian embassy until the Canadian’s produced the memo from the meeting. Deny Deny Deny until you get caught, then blah, blah, blah, lie lie lie, the white okie dokes with eat this shite up!

wolf2012 on March 18, 2008 at 4:25 pm

We the people, in order to form a more perfect union.î
“A More Perfect Union” ah?…..Hmmmm?
Interesting enough Louis Farrakhan used that “a More Perfect Union” stuff in his speech as he was cursing and casting spells against America during the million Man March in 1995 in Washington.
You should read his the whole transcript. He didn’t sound that different from Obama’s pastor Rev Wright. Hmmm? Makes you think who wrote Obama’s trite and jive time speech. He still holds on to the past, while using white guilt. That is all Obama’s got is White Guilt working for him. What happens when no one cares anymore? “if you don’t Obama want for President, you’re racist.”
http://www.cnn.com/US/9510/megamarch/10-
16/transcript/index.html
I don’t care what anyone says. Obama and his Church are Muslims hiding. That’s right, I’m saying it. I’ not voting for a Muslim. and, I’m not a Democrate either. No Muslim should every be president of a Judeo Christian nation. And I don’t care what anyone says. Just look how much good it has done for Sere leone, Somalia, Kenya and ethiopia. And they all you see to be early Christtian nations until Islamist conquered and converted by the sword. Just see how much good Islam has down for Africa. Idi Imam and Charles Taylor, and Robert Mugabe were Muslims leaders. And all they did and do was bring death, starvation and chaos.

Not abot race. It about Truth. I’m a brown face too.

dannygirl on March 18, 2008 at 4:54 pm

Oh and no self respecting Republican would ever vote for Obama:
1. We don’t vote democrat ever!
2. We don’t beleive that partial-birth abortion is an acceptable form of birth control, which Obama does
3. We don’t believe in Socialism, Marxism, or Communism, which Obama’s policies do.
4. We don’t believe that sex offenders, and convicted drug trafficers should be let out of prison early for “good” behavior, Obama does.
5. We believe that minors wanting an abortion should have their parents notified, Obama does not.
6. We feel that porno shops should be located outside the viewing range of churches and elementary schools, Obama does not.
7. We don’t believe in affirmative action in Colleges and Government, Obama does.
8. We believe in the Patriot Act, Obama opposed it.
9. We don’t believe in extending welfare to illegal immigrants. obama does.
10. We don’t believe in allowing illegal aliens to participate in Social Security, because 90% of the time they don’t pay anything in, Obama does.
11. We don’t believe in raising the Capital gains tax, obama does.
12. and finally, He is ranked as the most liberal Senator in the Senate today and that takes some doing. !

wolf2012 on March 18, 2008 at 5:00 pm

@stormsh!t:
Here’s your words right backattcha’ dumbass.
Quote:”He DIDN’T address it.Directly.YOU’RE just ignoring the distinction because it isn’t convenient to your argument.”
“Did I know know him to be an occasionally fierce critic of America…”
Fierce critic ???
WOW,now that’s some political “spin” !!!
NO you fool,what the correct term is,is pure unadulterated racial hate.
Should read:
Did I know him to be a FREQUENT fierce RACIAL HATER of America…
Got it STUPID ?

billybob on March 18, 2008 at 5:13 pm

Come on, wolf, don’t start foaming at the mouth. I’d like to engage in civil discourse, but you’re just misrepresenting Obama and mis-stating the facts at this point. I’m sure I’ll be called a jihadist next.
dannygirl, who still clings to this silliness that Obama is a Muslim, do you suppose Obama is a Sunni or shi’ite?

Audacious on March 18, 2008 at 5:26 pm

i don’t know if Obama is a Sunni or shi’ite. But, I do know that Audacious (aka Ignoramus) is a shi’ite head. By the way, what shade of brown is Osama Obama planning on painting the White House?

FreethinkerNY on March 18, 2008 at 5:42 pm

FreethinkerNY, your posts speak volumes about you.

Audacious on March 18, 2008 at 5:50 pm

Hey Audacious….I’m a black 25 year old male. I’m not voting for Obama and I never liked his views. His preacher pretty much tells me what I need to know about Obama.
Now does that make me an oreo cookie??

“dannygirl, who still clings to this silliness that Obama is a Muslim, do you suppose Obama is a Sunni or shi’ite?”
Most likely a Sunni. Malcolm X was in the end. The whole Shabazz Family. But Obama’s Islam comes straight from Africa. But, what does it matter what kind of Islam it is? It’s Islam. It is all bad. Death chaos, mayhem. blood, guts, and backwards.

Sorry Audacious,
I’m NOT mis stating any fact- Republicans don’t believe in Obama’s kool-aid, and for the record the 10 items I listed are from his Illinois state Senate record! Look it up you fool.

wolf2012 on March 18, 2008 at 6:33 pm

“I am the son of a black man from Kenya and a white woman from Kansas. I was raised with the help of a white grandfather who survived a Depression to serve in Pattonís Army during World War II and a white grandmother who worked on a bomber assembly line at Fort Leavenworth while he was overseas. Iíve gone to some of the best schools in America and lived in one of the worldís poorest nations. I am married to a black American who carries within her the blood of slaves and slaveowners ñ an inheritance we pass on to our two precious daughters. I have brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, uncles and cousins, of every race and every hue, scattered across three continents, and for as long as I live, I will never forget that in no other country on Earth is my story even possible.”
I love it. His Pastor says all this racist anti American stuff. And Obama is going to lecture America about rasicm of the past? From a man who “Iíve gone to some of the best schools in America and lived in one of the worldís poorest nations” Then whines, “I am married to a black American who carries within her the blood of slaves and slaveowners”. What? Should we dig up the bodies of dead slave owners and punish them. Show we dig up all the bodies 189,000 dead Union soldiers who died to save our “more Perfect Union”, the United States of America? Their sacrifice set the 4 million Black souls free. What is Obama talking about? What is he lecturing America about? He needs just to stop talking. If he does not fully apoligized for his racist Pastor and come clean with his anti American white guilt Communist Socialist agenda. Then just get lost.
Obama will never be President. THANK GOD!!!
Danny

dannygirl on March 18, 2008 at 6:42 pm

Oh and I’m not foaming at the mouth, I’m actually laughing hysterically that each time you open your mouth and spout garbage without substance, you reaffirm the views of the intellegent, and you become the proof to our arguments against B. Hussein O.
For that I thank you , thank you, thank you! Nothing I could ever say will have the effect that you do in promoting the demise of this slithering serpent

wolf2012 on March 18, 2008 at 6:44 pm

You’ve already mis-stated that Obama is breaking campaign finance laws, before I pointed out that his website asks contributors to agree to a list of conditions, in full compliance of laws. You’ve stated that Obama doesn’t even like his white mother, for which I’ve provided evidence to the contrary. Now you’ve got a list of beliefs beginning with the word “we.” Who are you representing? Certainly not the 1000+ members of Repubicans of Obama.
And why all the hositility and name-calling?

Audacious on March 18, 2008 at 6:46 pm

Audacious, if my posts displease a mentality such as yours, I must be doing something right. by the way, your hero Obama and his evil mentor Wright want to turn Martin Luther King’s dream into a nightmare. If you don’t know that, you are blind to reality. Obama is an unregenerate 60’s radical Leftist. He is not the moderate voice of unity his supporters naively believe him to be. He has chosen to surround himself with radicals like Wright and the equally unregenerate radical Bill Ayers of the Weather Underground. You can judge a man by the company he keeps.

FreethinkerNY on March 18, 2008 at 6:47 pm

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL I can’t stop laughing!!!! Michelle carries the blood of slaves and slave owners, How hilarious and IRONIC then that Hussein O. carries the blood of SLAVETRADES on his Father’s side from Kenya….THAT is just too HILARIOUS!!!!!! So the slavetrader and the slave reproduced, how fitting!!!! and who says, we all can’t get along? lololololololololololol

wolf2012 on March 18, 2008 at 6:50 pm

Oh yes, his campaign asks you a list of questions, without actual documented proof being provided of your citizenship, and I’m sure in your world nobody lies. Hillary Cankles Campaign website asks for documented proof, faxed copy of your passport to provide PROOF of your American citizenship before you can donate from outside the United States.
And I said, NO SELF RESPECTING REPUBLICAN would ever vote for Hussein O. …you understand the difference…

wolf2012 on March 18, 2008 at 6:57 pm

Is that 1,000 Republican members for Obama, Oh my, lions and tigers and bears oh my, he’s got the republicans all sowed up then!!! LOLOLOL

wolf2012 on March 18, 2008 at 7:01 pm

BLAH…BLAH..BLAH more lies and distortions
And yet words on a parchment would not be enough to deliver slaves from bondage(It was the Economic system of the time- He disrespects history)
I am the son of a black man from Kenya and a white woman from Kansas(So-neither one was a slave–what are you bitching about?)
I have already condemned, in unequivocal terms, the statements of Reverend Wright that have caused such controversy. For some, nagging questions remain.(Why did we wait until you got caught?)
Given my background, my politics, and my professed values and ideals,(Accepting cash from Rezko, Accepting a “Favorable” Real Estate Deal –Randy Cunningham went to prison for THAT)
This time we want to talk about how the lines in the Emergency Room are filled with whites and blacks and Hispanics who do not have health care; who donÔø?t have the power on their own to overcome the special interests in Washington, but who can take them on if we do it together.
(Oh-So we are going to ignore the fact they are illegal, and not entitled to “Health Care”–insyead you want US–The old Racist White US Taxpayers to foot the bill)

xroadcop on March 18, 2008 at 7:28 pm

Hey, while Obama “uniequivicoly” denounces the racist statemments made by his Racist seperatist pastor Rev Wright. Oddly He wholeheartly affrims his Pastor as his mentor. Say what???
I don’t about you, but I never attended a Church that “damned” America. Excuse me, I don’t know about you guys, I just attend a normal God fearing, God Praising, and America loving Church.
I’m reading over this Obama speech again. Obama just rambles on. Continuly contradicting himself. Even though Obama’s Pastor is a racist. Obama’s speech goes from racism to health care, to the Iraqi war, to Illegal Aliens. What?? On and on. Lol! Lol! Obama will never be President. THANK GOD!!!!

dannygirl on March 18, 2008 at 7:31 pm

And Audacious stated earlier, that there were no campaign finace laws, how funny is that.
I’ve been to Catholic churches, Lutheran churches, Baptist Chruches, Jewish Synagogues, and even the Blue Mosque in Turkey, and NEVER in all those places of worship did the Preacher, Pastor, Father, Minister, Rabbi, or even the Imam ever take the lords, G-ds, name in vain, nor did they ever spew vulgarities from the pulpit- it’s concidered blasphomous, and disrespectful to the G-d whose church you are supposed to be worshipping in. Proves our point, B. Hussein O. in not a follower of any “Christ” we know off.

wolf2012 on March 18, 2008 at 7:51 pm

Obama’s pastor taught him love? As he “god damned” America??? Tell me about it.
His white grandmother admitted she didn’t trust black men? Well, Jesse Jackson said the same thing about blacks in crime back in 90s. But that’s okay. Jesse Jackson contridicts himself too.
Danny

dannygirl on March 18, 2008 at 8:01 pm

O’Bomber wants us all to stop bringing up the race issue. Well, the only reason we are talking about it is because his “mentor” is a rabid racist.
But somehow we are to blame? Well that is what his “mentor” has been saying all along, now, isn’t it. So he DOES believe all that garbage!
Maybe that’s why he hasn’t been able to get Wright to tone his paranoid hate filled rhetoric down in the 20 years he’s had to work on him? I would say O’Bomber is a miserable failure as a leader on the race issue, based on that insight, or should I say, “incite?” I mean, if he can’t even sway those he’s close to, how does he expect to influence the nation? (HINT – he doesn’t intend to inspire, but to dictate. Hey, he is a Leftist, after all.)
And, as to a Black president? I have no problem with that, as long as he isn’t a Lefty!

yonason on March 18, 2008 at 8:56 pm

A few of the posts have stated that no self-respecting republican would ever vote for a democrat. I agree, and so that’s why I’m no longer a republican. The primary process that “elected” a nominee as lame as McCain convinced me that being a republican is no longer in the interest of conservatives. I say “elected” because I’m not one of the privileged few that live in Iowa, or New Hampshire, or South Carolina. No, I’m just a peon in Texas who doesn’t get to vote until after the RNC’s pick is anointed in a process that was obviously rigged to produce the nominee that the country clubbers wanted. In order to register my disgust I crossed over and voted for Obama in the Texas primary. That vote for Obama was my only vote as, and for, a democrat since my very first vote in 1976 for Jimmy Carter. WTF else was I gonna do? After the Gang-of-14 thing a couple years ago I was so pissed that I swore I would never vote for McCain, so I didn’t. My hope is that my vote for Obama may help purge enough of my angst that I might vote for Juan McCain in the general. It seems to be working out okay. Obama looks like he’s going to be the nominee but is now a joke, and his speech today didn’t do one thing to “unjoke-ify” him IMHO (his speech – that is what I’m supposed to be posting about, right?)

CornCoLeo on March 18, 2008 at 9:31 pm

Obama is a fraud. He’s already conned the idiots in the US who want “change they can believe in”.
Obama is a racist. And a highly opportunist at that.
Obama is a liar. Lies through his teeth with his “well-spoken accent” about his so-called “faith”.
Obama is an idiot. Look at him talk on phone about his “change that others can believe in” http://beewulf.com/x/presidentobama.html
Vote for Obama for President in 30BC, yeah, he’s fit for the medieval ages, not for this great country.

obamafor30bc on March 18, 2008 at 10:19 pm

Wolf: “Hillary Cankles Campaign website asks for documented proof, faxed copy of your passport to provide PROOF of your American citizenship before you can donate from outside the United States.”
Another untruth. It does nothing of the kind. Her site practically uses Obama’s website as a template. It’s the same process.

Audacious on March 18, 2008 at 10:26 pm

Forgive me, wolf, you are right about that. The Hillary campaign does ask you to mail in a copy of your green card, not a fax. My apologies.

Audacious on March 18, 2008 at 10:30 pm

Ohhh an apology audacious, that must have hurt.

wolf2012 on March 18, 2008 at 10:53 pm

Audacious,
Sorry I didn’t respond to your earlier statements of obama professing his love of his mother, I didn’t see his statements in the New York Times(I don’t read that hack newspaper)
“Some of what he has said about his mother seems tinged with a mix of love and regret. He has said his biggest mistake was not being at her bedside when she died.(WF2012-NOT BEING AT HER BEDSIDE, HE NEVER EVEN VISITED HER WHILE SHE WAS ALIVE) And when The Associated Press asked the candidates about ìprized keepsakesî ó others mentioned signed baseballs, a pocket watch, a ìtrophy wifeî ó Mr. Obama said his was a photograph of the cliffs of the South Shore of Oahu in Hawaii where his motherís ashes were scattered.(WF2012- A PHOTOGRAPH OF THE CLIFFS OF OAHU, SURPRISING IT WASN’T A PICTURE OF HIS ACTUAL MOTHER, NOT EVEN A PICTURE OF HER ASHES BEING SCATTERED, JUST THE CLIFFS….I HAVE SEVERAL PICTURES OF PLACES WITH NO PEOPLE, THEY ARE NOT MY PRIZED POSSESSIONS, AND I’VE TRAVELED ALL OVER EUROPE)
ìI think sometimes that had I known she would not survive her illness(WF2012- NOT SURVIVE HER ILLNESS…SHE HAD A TERMINAL FORM OF AGGESSIVE CANCER,BREAST CANCER I BELIEVE, I WONDER WHAT PART OF TERMINAL HE JUST COULDN’T UNDERSTAND, HE DOES HAVE A DEGREE FROM HARVARD I THINK. AGAIN, HE NEVER VISITED HER ONCE, EVEN IF BY SOME MIRACLE FROM ALLAH SHE WOULD SURVIVE, ANY SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE HUMAN WITH A HEART AND SOME COMMON SENSE, WOULD HAVE TRAVELED TO BE WITH THEIR BELOVED MOTHER IN HER TIME OF NEED) I might have written a different book ó less a meditation on the absent parent(WF2012- YES THE ABSENT PARENT,THE SECOND ONE TO ABANDON POOR OBAMA, MAYBE THEY BOTH KNEW SOMETHING ABOUT HIM THAT WE DON’T…HORNS AND A TAIL MAYBE).more a celebration of the one who was the single constant in my life,î(WF2012- SINGLE CONSTANT, SHE ABANDONDED HIM AT THE AGE OF 10, THE ONLY CONSTANT WOULD HAVE BEEN HIS WHITE GRANDPARENTS) he wrote in the preface to his memoir, ìDreams From My Father.î He added, ìI know that she was the kindest, most generous spirit I have ever known,(FROM THE AGE OF 10 ON, THEIR WASN’T A WHOLE LOT TO GAIN FROM AN ABSENT PARENT) and that what is best in me I owe to her.î(WF2012- THE BEST IN ME I OWE TO HER, THEN WHY DID HE FORSAKE HIS MOTHER AND HIS WHITE GRANDPARENTS TO SEARCH OUT AND WRITE A MOSTLY FICTIONAL ACCOUNT OF HIS STRUGGLE TO BE MORE BLACK, “DREAMS OF MY FATHER” AN ACCOUNT OF HIS BLACK SIDE OF HIS DNA MAKEUP THAT HAD ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH HIM.)
“And you write that he doesn’t even like his mother? How can that be?”
SORRY, YOUR PARAGRAPHS ACTUALLY GIVE ME MORE CREEDENCE TO MY ARUGUMENT THAN THEY DO YOURS.
The following excerpts are from Steve Sailer, The conservative press, his review of “Dreams of my Father” march 26 2007
“A racial group is a large extended family, and Obamaís book is primarily about his rejection of his supportive white maternal extended family in favor of his unknown black paternal extended family
“And yet, at least through age 33 when he wrote Dreams from My Father, he found solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against his motherís race
“Even his celebrated acceptance of Christianity in his mid-20s turns out to be an affirmation of African-American emotional separatism.”-
“The happy ending to Dreams is that Obamaís hard-drinking half-brother RoyóìActually, now we call him Abongo, his Luo name, for two years ago he decided to reassert his African heritageîóconverts to teetotaling Islam
“From the age of ten onward, though, Obama desperately wants to be black: ìI was trying to raise myself to be a black man in America, and beyond the given of my appearance, no one around me seemed to know exactly what that meant.î
He cherishes every cause for complaint he can discern against white folks. He is constantly distressed at being half-white. Obama says he ìceased to advertise my motherís race at the age of twelve or thirteen, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites,î
He pompously intones, ìThe emotions between the races could never be pure; even love was tarnished by the desire to find in the other some element that was missing in ourselves. Whether we sought out our demons or salvation, the other race would always remain just that: menacing, alien, and apart.î
Sorry Debbie for hijacking your web site. I didn’t mean too.

I love the amount of people who think this is OK. Typical of Demarxocrats. Oh wait it is all the Republicans fault, that and talk radio. Obama is done, and no matter how much the left tries to play on “White” guilt now it is over for him. He is a fake and a fraud. A Jim Jones at work and you all drank the cool aid like it was coming from the Holy Grail. I got a question for the left.. Now what ya gonna do now that calling us “racist” and “Bigot” doesn’t work anymore?

Barry, you’ve gone from unqualified to disqualified:
You were all along unqualified. One lousy, socialist boilerplate speech (dnc convention-04)propelled your run for prez despite your obvious thin resume.
Now, you want everyone to believe that sitting through 20 years of the Rev’s racsist blather (nodding your head in the affirmative, I’m sure) doesn’t mean a thing; that you were affected only by the Jesus feeding the poor parts. Nice try Barry. No sale.
However, you are to be commended for your unintended sleight of hand: You’ve made comrade Clinton look like a good choice. That’s double tough!

The brain dead left needs this man to lead them out of their fog. You can point out his inconsistencies, half truths, misdirection and out rights lies but those who follow him will only hear his flowery words. As Joe Biden said, “he is a clean, articulate black man”. Now he has probably proven he is black enough for the black liberal Times columnist who doubted him before. Oh thank heavens for Barry’s tongue, smooth and forked.

Anyone for a third party candidate….

Thank you Winjammer,
“My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world.
I hope you’ll join with me as we try to change it.” — Barack Obama
enough said.

Change it?? Hell no will you change this country into your death buster filled world. Who the hell do you think you repersent?? You damn sure don’t repersent all of us Blacks, and you damn sure don’t repersent america.
Barrack Hussien Obama is the real life Professor Tomoe (that is a character from Sailor Moon’s 3rd season) with a racist marxist preacher who wants to bring the kind of change that’ll destroy america. It almost FORCES me to vote for John McCain…if he had a running mate.
But I’m too all for the 3rd party canidate. You know Michael Savage did say he wanted to start a 3rd party…I’d say let’s do it.

Obama missed a golden opportunity in his speech. He talked about how he was raised by his white grandmother. What he implied, but failed to address, is that he had dead beat parents! Where were they? And where was the “other color” grandmother?
All he could do was show what an ingrate he is by chastising the only one that cared about his black ass! Imagine what the poor grandmother had to go through to come to the point of realizing it was up to her to raise the bas***d.
Yes, he missed an opportunity to address a social epidemic in this country: dead beat parents. But he chose to throw his own grandmother under the bus. He said worse thinhgs about her than he did “Rev.” Wright. BTW, is this Wright related to Charles A. Wright, for whom the African-American Museum in Detroit is named for?

you are right on March 19, 2008 at 12:15 pm

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha.
You people are really starting to panic now, I can taste your fear.

One thing you might want to consider people, chances are, all of you who are spewing hatred and bile in Obama’s direction are already in an FBI file by now. So you might want to start moderating how you express your opinions, because when he gets to the White House you are going to end up on a Secret Service watch-list. Be very careful unless you want your private emails opened and an IRS audit on your asses every other week.

“ACCORDING TO ROBERT DAVIS BETWEEN 1 MILLION AND 1.25 MILLION EUROPEANS WERE CAPTURED BY BARBARY PIRATES AND SOLD AS SLAVES IN NORTH AFRICA..”
Debo, just so you know, the barbary pirates were mercenaries, from all over northern Africa AND Europe. Their most famous captain was a Dutchman.
