Triumph of ethnicity

Rev. Jeremiah Wright at the White House, 1998

When historians look back on the election of 2012, and the politics of division, as practiced by the party in power, they will marvel at the effectiveness of the Axelrod/Plouffe voter turnout machine, and the rhetorical mastery of the language of distribution and class division by Barack Obama.  They may also notice what many on the other side of the divide are beginning to see …

To most white male Republicans, it’s absurd to think that there should be an organized effort premised on behalf of arbitrary notions such as race and ethnicity, or by the drive to push a particular demographic group out of their perceived perch of power.  …

When 80% of Philadelphia residents voted for Barack Obama, they were fueled and motivated [by] the idea that America must change, and it can only change if rich, white-male capitalist pigs have their wealth redistributed and are kept from political office. This is why Barack Obama never had to get specific about what his second term would look like; all he had to do was reinforce the generalities.

From David Paul, this is one of those posts that nails it.  As they …  Read it all.

Sotomayor: same song, second verse (updated)

“I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experience would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.”

Sonia Sotomayor, during a 2001 speech at the UC Berkeley School of Law, published in the Berkeley La Raza Law Journal.

Judge Sonia Sotomayor is listed as a member of the National Council of La Raza, but does that make her a racist?

24Ahead.com takes a detailed look at the La Raza (The Race).

Here is an excerpt:

Far-left racial power organization that’s considered mainstream but which funds extremists (also here) and supports illegal immigration as a way of obtaining political power. Funded by, among others, the Ford Foundation, the U.S. government (also see this, this, and this), and major corporations such as HomeDepot and General Motors. Has been pandered to by many top politicians, including Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John McCain, and Karl Rove (see this). Per the Washington Post, they and a few other groups had “virtual veto power” over the provisions of the 2007 comprehensive immigration reform (i.e., amnesty) bill.

Headed by Janet Murguia for several years, before then by Raul Yzaguirre. Former senior VP Cecilia Munoz is now part of the Obama administration. Former chairwoman is Monica Lozano (now on the Bank of America board, more here); current is Andrea Bazan (more here). …

In 1994, they gave their “Chicano Hero Award” to the person who’d made this statement years earlier:

“We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him.”

In the last election, The Democrats successfully sold the idea that Obama’s previous associations with radicals and separatists like Jeremiah Wright, and unrepentant terrorists like William Ayers was nothing at all to be concerned about. “Guilt by association,” they said.  Prior to throwing him under the campaign bus, Obama himself even claimed to have never heard any of the more inflammatory words of his pastor.  This was the man who baptized his children, a man he once called his spiritual mentor.  And, the American public, hungry for change and tired of the steady diet of negativity in the news cycle, elected a man with no experience and a  history of dubious past associations.

The Sotomayor nomination appears to be more of the same song, just a different verse.

When a judge rules based upon personal values rather than the law, then the rule of law is replaced by the rule of judicial fiat.

I do hope Senator Sessions is loaded for bear.

Leftist-islamic convergence: BHO takes next step

CHICAGO — In a bid to get more Muslim Americans working in the Obama administration, a book with resumes of 45 of the nation’s most qualified — Ivy League grads, Fortune 500 executives and public servants, all carefully vetted — has been submitted to the White House.

The effort, driven by community leaders and others, including U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., was bumped up two weeks because White House officials heard about the venture, said J. Saleh Williams, program coordinator for the Congressional Muslim Staffers Association, who sifted through more than 300 names.

“It was mostly under the radar,” Williams said. “We thought it would put (the president) in a precarious position. We didn’t know how closely he wanted to appear to be working with the Muslim American community.” source

I wonder how closely Obama has worked with this organization.

A quick check of the CMSA website reveals prominent links to CAIR, and ISNA, both of whom were named as “unindicted co-conspirator” in a plot to fund the terrorist group Hamas in the Holy Land Foundation trial.

Now that the story is out, I’m sure that yet another dubious association of the president will be explained away by the lapdog media. But, before this story joins the rest in the memory rat-hole, just ask yourselves this question: What if George W. Bush had worked closely with Christian leaders to obtain a pre-vetted list of Evangelical Christians for the sole purpose of making political appointments? The charges of “theocracy” and “separation of Church and state” would make your ears hurt.

Here are a few stories of interest this morning …

Remember Jeremiah Wright and the Trinity Church in Chicago?  Of course, who can forget “G-D America.” Paul Ibrahim, writing at North Star describes his recent visit to Trinity Church. Here is an excerpt:

As a Christian, I was stunned that a Christian pastor was partitioning me from those sitting immediately next to me based on nothing but our skin colors. I suddenly felt unwelcome. And at the conclusion of Parker’s speech, I had no choice but to quietly leave.

Gregg Harper, freshman congressman from Mississippi, has (along with 9 others) co-sponsored a bill to exempt residents of Washington DC from income tax. It’s called “The no taxation without representation act.”

(From Pike County Times)

So, if I’m reading this right, DC lobbyists will not have to pay income taxes? C’mon Gregg! K Street must love this bill, but it sure won’t fly on Main Street.

Finally, here is a story about a creepy sounding disease that has been flying under the radar, called morgellons … As is you didn’t have enough to worry about …

Morgellons is a terrifying disease reaching pandemic status. Yet because the symptoms of the disease are so bizarre, people who have it tend to withdraw and become isolated from society. With mysterious fibers and parasites coming through lesions in their skin, Morgellons sufferers often live in fear. As a result there is no pressure on the medical establishment to become educated about the disease, and most practitioners continue to view it as isolated instances of delusional parasitosis..

Risky Business

This is how we lost to the white man

This article originally appeared on NN&V many moons ago. I think it is timely.

Ta-Nehisi Coates, writing in the Atlantic, has penned an article that will leave me in a reflective mood for some time.

It’s about race. It’s about culture. It’s about America. And, it is an honest appraisal of our unfinished business as a uniquely American culture — a frank and unflinching glimpse into the inner ticking of an African-American writer who takes a close look at Bill Cosby and the message (and the messengers) of black self-reliance.

I’ve written several times about growing up in the 60′s Deep South, believing that this experience gives a unique perspective on the subject of racism. But, as I mentioned previously, growing up on the white side of the divide, I really have no idea of what it was like for the blacks, and I want to thank Mr. Coates for granting some much needed perspective.

Here are a three excerpts:

So many dots, so little time

Update: Welcome readers from Free Republic!

Stanley Kurtz, Melanie Phillips, Debbie Schlussel, David Freddoso, Dick Morris, Sean Hannity, and even the National Enquirer have all made great efforts to connect the dots on the shady past of Barack Obama. Each in their own way have exposed the amazing lack of judgment and questionable associations of this man who would be President.

As each revelation is met with the another disingenous denial, we on the Right have resigned ourselves to the fact that a tingling in the leg trumps journalistic ethics, and the Fourth Estate has evolved to become effete cheerleaders. It occurred to me the other night, while listening to a discussion of Obama’s mentor, Alan Colmes asked the question, “So, what’s wrong with Saul Alinsky?”

Alinsky’s alliances with Black separatists, radical pastors in the Church of Christ, the Nation of Islam, all have a very familiar ring with Obama, Jeremah Wright, and Louis Farrakhan. In fact, it was Alinsky’s battle against Eastman Kodak that laid the framework for tactics employed in the rise of Obama’s ACORN.

After endless months of frustration, we finally decided we’d try to embarrass Kodak outside its fortress of Rochester, and disrupt the annual stockholders’ convention in Flemington, New Jersey. Though we didn’t know it at the time — all we had in mind was a little troublemaking — this was the seed from which a vitally important tactic was to spring. I addressed the General Assembly of the Unitarian-Universalist Association and asked them for their proxies on whatever Kodak stock they held in order to gain entree to the stockholders’ meeting. The Unitarians voted to use the proxies for their entire Kodak stock to support FIGHT — 5620 shares valued at over $700,000.

The wire services carried the story and news of the incident rapidly spread across the country. Individuals began sending in their proxies, and other church groups indicated they were prepared to follow the Unitarians’ lead. By the purest accident, we’d stumbled onto a tactical gold mine. Politicians who saw major church denominations assigning us their proxies could envision them assigning us their votes as well; the church groups have vast constituencies in their congregations. Suddenly senators and representatives who hadn’t returned our phone calls were ringing up and lending a sympathetic ear to my request for a senatorial investigation of Kodak’s hiring practices. … We wanted to use the proxies as a means of social and political pressure against the megacorporations, and as a vehicle for exposing their hypocrisy and deceit. …

Proxies can become a springboard to other issues in organizing the middle class. Proxy participation on a large scale could ultimately mean the democratization of corporate America, and could result in the changing of these corporations’ overseas operations, which would precipitate important shifts in our foreign policy. There’s really no limit to the proxy potential. Pat Moynihan told me in Washington when he was still Nixon’s advisor that “proxies for people would mean revolution — they’ll never let you get away with it.” It will mean revolution, peaceful revolution, and we will get away with it in the years to come. source

Indeed. They are getting away with it now. Buried in the massive Wall Street bailout package was funding for radical community groups like Obama’s ACORN. Tactics of ruthless intimidation backed by massive funding has provided these militant utopians with frightening access to the levers of power. Alinsky’s warning was equaly ominous…

Every major revolutionary movement in history has gone through the same process of corruption, proceeding from virginal purity to seduction to decadence. Look at the Christian church as it evolved from the days of the martyrs to a giant holding company, or the way the Russian Revolution degenerated into a morass of bureaucracy and oppression as the new class of state managers replaced the feudal landowners as the reigning power elite. Look at our American Revolution; there wasn’t anybody more dedicated to the right of revolution than Sam Adams, leader of the Sons of Liberty, the radical wing of the revolution. But once we won the fight, you couldn’t find a worse dictatorial reactionary than Adams; he insisted that every single leader of Shays’ Rebellion be executed as a warning to the masses. He had the right to revolt, but nobody had the right to revolt against him. Take Gandhi, even; within ten months of India’s independence, he acquiesced in the law making passive resistance a felony, and he abandoned his nonviolent principles to support the military occupation of Kashmir. Subsequently, we’ve seen the same thing happen in Goa and Pakistan. Over and over again, the firebrand revolutionary freedom fighter is the first to destroy the rights and even the lives of the next generation of rebels.

We’ve already seen several instances of supression of 1st Amendment rights from team Obama, including Federal Lawsuits filed against critics, to organized suppression at radio station WGN. Reinstituting the so-called “fairness doctrine” has been talked about. He has even proposed for some type of civilian national armed forces. Can brown shirts be far behind?

And to answer Colmes, just read the last interview of alinsky (playboy 1972) and decide for yourself. (pdf will take a moment to load)

The Myth of the Undecided Voter

Update: Welcome readers from Free Republic

You’ve seen them in interactive focus groups, and most recently in the Town hall debate: The Undecideds.

It makes a normal voter wonder, “Where in the heck to they find these people?”

The answer was inadvertently revealed at msnbc.com by Domenico Montanaro in his interview with “undecided” voter Oliver Clark, one of the Town hall debate questioners …

…the Sunday before last, I received a call from the Gallop Poll. They asked a few questions regarding my choice in the Presidential election. They asked who I would vote for. I said most likely I would be voting for Barack Obama. They followed with, “is there any chance that you would change your mind“? I said “Of course anything is possible.” They then asked me as an uncommitted voter would I like to participate in the Town hall debate. I said “Of course!”

Of course! It’s so clear to me now. This man is obviously undecided.

So, next time a pollster calls me and asks me if there is any chance I might change my mind, instead of telling them, “No,” I’ll just say, “When monkeys fly out of my ____,” and voila! You might just see El Nuko in the next Frank Luntz focus group!

Does J. Wright Remember the Zebra Killings?

Rev J. Wright has been all over the news for the past few days, and the following was just one of many very revealing comments. His defense of the Nation of Islam, and Louis Farrakhan, at the National Press Club was vintage left-wing “victim politics”…. (HotAir has the clip)

“Louis Farrakhan is not my enemy. He did not put me in chains, he did not put me in slavery …”

Chains? Slavery? No, Farrakhan is not guilty of these crimes. Nor is anyone else, for that matter.

But, just in case anyone needs a reminder of some of the things which do qualify Farrakhan and the NOI as an enemy of liberty, here is something which is much more dangerous than Louis’ notorious hate-speech.

Remembering the Zebra Killings

The Zebra Killings occurred in the San Francisco bay area between 1972 and 1974 and left 71 people dead. They were dubbed the Zebra Killings because of the radio channel used by the police investigating the case (channel Z). The name would take on a more sinister meaning as it became apparent that a group of blacks was systematically stalking and killing whites simply because of the color of their skin….

The majority of the attacks were carried out by five members of a group within Louis Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam called the “Death Angels.” Jesse Lee Cooks, J.C. Simon, Larry Green, Manuel Moore and Anthony Harris were part of this group which believed that whites were created 3,000 years ago by a black mad scientist named Yacub who wanted a race of inferiors to rule over. Death Angels believed they could earn “points” towards going to heaven when they died if they killed whites. For them, whites were not human beings but “grafted snakes,” “blue-eyed devils” and “white motherf—–s.”

Is there political strategery by the Obama campaign involved in Wright’s looney-tunes rant?

Probably. The more Wright speaks, the more he makes it all about himself, and his ego. His speaking tour puts everything in the present tense, quite possibly making it easier for Obama to distance himself from him.

The interesting part of all of this is seeing how many on the left, and in the media, actually agree with, or are sympathetic to Wright’s lunatic ravings.

Jeremiah Wright is the least of his problems

It’s time to back away the Jeremiah Wright kerfluffle.

If Lanny Davis and other Clinton surrogates want to play the race game, then so be it. Obama is no racist, nor is he responsible for the inflammatory and seditious statements made by Jeremiah Wright.

Earlier today, I saw a video that has been mentioned by several bloggers on the right, which compares certain passages from Obama’s book and with selected video clips from several of Wright’s sermons. The viewer is led to the conclusion that Obama poses a threat to the country because of his racial beliefs.

The reason that Obama should not be President has nothing at all to do with race, and to spend time on these kinds of tactics won’t defeat him. It ignores the fact that his lack of experience leaves him unprepared to assume the duties of the job. It also ignores the fact that Obama exudes a certain grandiosity that surpasses mere cockiness and is, well, unseemly, if not dangerous.

Earlier this week at a San Francisco fundraiser, Obama said, “…foreign policy is the area where I am probably most confident that I know more and understand the world better than Senator Clinton or Senator McCain.

Oh, please.

After belittling Mrs. Clinton’s experience as First Lady as being ceremonial fluff, Obama went on to say that among the three candidates for President, only he passes the 3 AM Leadership Test. Indeed, he alone possesses “the judgment, the temperament to ask the right questions, to weigh the costs and benefits of military action, who insists on good intelligence, who is not going to be swayed by the short-term politics.” What a piece of work. source

And as for the ultimate foreign policy test, the one John Kerry called, “passing the Global Test,” Obama proposes a diplomatic Manhattan Project of sorts, with Iran’s Mahmoud Amadinejad. The same Ahmadinejad who said today, his country’s objective was to destroy what he called corrupt western powers:

“Our objective is to annihilate all corrupt powers that dominate our planet today,”
source

Iran is building nuclear weapons, and has tested the delivery systems to carry out Ahmadinejad’s objective. If he uses them, he gains favor of his god, and ushers in the End-Times chaos of the 12th Mahdi. If he is in turn incinerated in a retaliatory strike, he gets to spend eternity with 72 virgins. He wins either way.

Taking a college trip to Pakistan, living in Indonesia for four years as a child, and having poor relatives in Africa has convinced Obama that he has the necessary gravitas to engage in foreign policy on behalf of the world’s only superpower.

Jeremiah Wright is the least of his problems.

Jeremiah Wright, PBUH

Over at Free Republic, contributor “Timeout” posts this excerpt from a year-old article from The New Republic …

After many lectures like this, Obama decided to take a second look at Wright’s church. Older pastors warned him that Trinity was for “Buppies”–black urban professionals–and didn’t have enough street cred. But Wright was a former Muslim and black nationalist who had studied at Howard and Chicago, and Trinity’s guiding principles–what the church calls the “Black Value System”–included a “Disavowal of the Pursuit of Middleclassness.’”

Jeremiah Wright, a muslim?

This is the first I’ve heard of this. All the muslim references up til now have been directed at Obama. The defense of Wright as some kind of modern-day MLK began in earnest last week, but never a mention of his muslim past.

Jeremiah Wright, PBUH.

Here is a screenshot of the article, just in case it “disappears.” The excerpted paragraph is about 3/4 way down.

Update: More on J. Wright……….
# Dr. Wright is a student of the history of religions. His master’s degree from the University of Chicago is in that discipline and his area of concentration as an historian of religions was Islam in West Africa. While a student at the University of Chicago (U of C) he studied with the esteemed Islamic professor, Dr. Fazlur Rahman.

# Dr. Wright’s Master’s thesis at the Divinity School of the U of C was the Tijaniyya among the Bambara, the Fulbe and the Tuckolour. The Tijaniyya was a 19th Century Sufi movement (a sect of Sufism) which swept into West Africa during the period of the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade.

The Palestinian Authority is planning to mark Israel’s 60th anniversary by calling on all Palestinians living abroad to converge on Israel by land, sea and air. The plan, drawn by Ziad Abu Ein, a senior Fatah operative and Deputy Minister for Prisoners’ Affairs in the Palestinian Authority, states that the Palestinians have decided to implement United Nations Resolution 194 regarding the refugees.

Article 11 of the resolution, which was passed in December 1948, says that “refugees wishing to return to their homes and live at peace with their neighbors should be permitted to do so at the earliest practicable date, and that compensation should be paid for the property of those choosing not to return and for loss of or damage to property which, under principles of international law or in equity, should be made good by the Governments or authorities responsible.”

And, this little ditty from the Rev…”Israel is a Dirty Word” (h/t Ace)

Obama: “I never knew it!”

The audacity of chutzpah.

After 20 years of church membership, Senator Obama now claims he had no idea of the anti-American, leftist hate speech from his pastor,

“None of these statements were ones I had heard myself personally in the pews,” Obama told FOX News. “Once I saw them I had to be very clear about the fact that these are not statements that I am comfortable with. I reject them completely they are not ones that reflect my values or my ideals.”

Right.

Are we back to parsing statements, and redefining the meaning of “is?”

Better yet, why don’t we just define what Obama is lying about.

If in fact he never heard Wright’s hate-filled sermons, it simply means that he wasn’t in attendance on the numerous times that Wright went on a rant.

But, it doesn’t mean that Senator Gravitas wasn’t aware of Wright’s words, or his separatist views. And it doesn’t explain why he waited until now to disavow Wright.

It simply means he never heard it from the pews. And frankly, that’s just not good enough.

It’s clever, just not credible.

Ok Hillary, the ball is teed it up for you. If you don’t slap this sucker baldheaded, then you don’t deserve the nomination.

Bob’s Bites asks, Is Obama Lying?

He expects us to believe, that in twenty years of attending the same church, he never knew his pastor hated America. I find it hard to believe he didn’t know about the hatred Rev. Wright has for America. This man preaches about America spreading HIV to blacks on purpose, planning Sept. 11, 2001, and preaches God Damn America. How in the world can Obama not have heard about this in 20 years of attending this church.

=====

Update: The Smoking Gun ….. In a story by the NYT [ screenshot ] dated March 6, 2007, Jeremiah Wright recalls a telephone conversation with Obama. In that call, Obama explains why it was necessary to distance himself from Wright.

“You can get kind of rough in the sermons, so what we’ve decided is that it’s best for you not to be out there in public.”

That clanging sound you hear is the sound of all four tires flying off the Obamagasm Express.

Update:  Jake Tapper at ABC agrees.

+++++

Update: Obama campaign throws Wright under the bus. But, MSNBC is not above a little moral equivalence, comparing Wright’s hate speech with recent comments by Geraldine Ferraro…

Wright was the latest in a series of advisers to Obama and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., who have stepped aside as supporters of both candidates trade racially charged accusations.
