AmeriCAN-DO Attitude

Are you an AmeriCAN or an AmeriCAN'T?

The Radical Friends of Barack Obama

I don’t have enough time to expand on this, as I should have been in bed an hour ago, but I wanted to pass this along…

In my surfing around the conservative/anti-idiotarian blogs and milblogs that I regularly read, I have come across bloggers who are actually praising, in one way or another, Barack Obama’s speech and claiming that they felt Barack Obama was trancending race in his presidential campaign. Considering I have been researching this guy for over a year now and have known about his “radical roots” (as Rolling Stone called them) for that time, I have a very difficult time figuring out how people have been falling for this guy’s lies. The only thing I can figure out is that they are willfully blind or just plain ignorant of his background.

And, maybe it will come as a surprise to many of you at this point, Jeremiah Wright is only the tip of the iceberg with regards to the radical leftists, radical Islamists and, yes, terrorists in Barack Obama’s circle of friends, acquaintances and political allies.

Again, I don’t have time to highlight specific passages here, but please do read this post by Rick Moran at RightWingNuthouse from 23 FEB 2008: OBAMA AND THE RADICALS: SOULMATES?

I would think people would be interested in someone whose background includes association with people of this ideology:

“Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, kill your parents, that’s where it’s really at.” This earns Ayers at least some spiritual kinship to Osama Bin Laden. (In last Sunday’s New York Times Magazine, which of course went to press before Sept. 11, Ayers maintains that this was “a joke.” In a more serious vein, Ayers was quoted by another Times interviewer as saying, “I don’t regret setting bombs. I feel we didn’t do enough.”

[ … ]

Any revolutionary change must be preceded by a passive, affirmative, non-challenging attitude toward change among the mass of our people. They must feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and change the future. This acceptance is the reformation essential to any revolution. To bring on this reformation requires that the organizer work inside the system, among not only the middle class but the 40 per cent of American families – more than seventy million people – whose income range from $5,000 to $10,000 a year [in 1971].”

Be sure to check this out as well.  Apparently Rev Wright has a degree in Islamic History and sympathizes with the terrorists of Hamas:  TUCC’s Church Bulletins from July 2007 Probably Make Whether Obama was Present on July 22 Irrelevant
