The Audacity of Bigotry

Mr. Wonderful has been unmasked. Barack Obama's association with the Reverend Jeremiah Wright is proof of one thing: Obama is a racist focused on the politics of division. By now we have all heard the sound clips of the Reverend Wright's vile and hateful language. Obama has of course tried to distance himself from the Reverend Wright, but his eloquent dissembling can't get him out of this one. The Reverend Wright wasn't just Barack's pastor, he performed his marriage, baptized his children and in Barack's own words, was his "spiritual advisor". A spiritual advisor is one of the most intimate and close of all human relationships. Barack knew exactly what Wright was preaching, and he endorsed it. Barack Obama is a very angry and hateful man. A Harvard education, a calm demeanor and an eloquent tongue tend to mask this, but his longstanding and close relationship with the Reverend Wright is proof of his deception.

So what does the GOP's longstanding devotion to Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, James Dobson, and John Hagee prove?

I dont think McCain went to their church every week, but anyways.

If Obama thought this speech was so important he would have given it before it was a political neccessity. He did not.

Obama pretends that he just learned of Wright's black seperatist rhetoric. His campaign, however, knew that Wright was radioactive as long ago as when Obama announced his candidacy -- which is why Wright was disinvited from the announcement ceremony.

1. McCain actively sought Hagee's endorsement, and that man is as much a danger to this country as Wright.

2. Did anyone bother to watch Obama's (or even Mike Huckabee's) response to the hooplah? It was once again another speech that to me, the jaded political junkie, went above black/white and good/evil and really said something enlightening. There are still racial problems in this country, and unfortunately many people do not want to know about it. Only by confronting these issues head on, instead of going "scary black pastor scary scary you got the right to vote, so shut up," can we really move forward.


*by the way, hello fellow kentuckians. I am Matt, currently an expat of our fair state and residing in Michigan (off to college). I stumbled upon your blog looking for obama kentucky poll results (thanks) and figured everyone can always use good feedback (I apologize for possible sarcasm in other comments I made elsehwere) in politics...
