Heh. The Official Obama Criticizer is back, babey!
Bo Knows! Preach on, brother, preach on!
This is quite interesting and I have not gotten through it all yet, but I wanted to pass it along. I found this at Velvet Hammer’s blog Ironic Surrealism II, in a comment by Winged Hussar 1683.
Winged Hussar 1683 commented on Barack Obama’s ties to the race baiting bigot, Reverend Al Sharpton. And he included this website which details these ties: Obama’s Extensive Ties to Hate Groups and Bigots
Here is an exerpt:
It is a basic tenet of common sense, not to mention common decency, that public figures like celebrities and politicians do not consort with, promote, endorse, or otherwise empower racists and/or anti-Semites. Endorsement of hate mongers or hate groups, or proven hate speech, can easily derail or even end a career. We fail to understand why Barack Obama is getting a pass from the media on his open association with and promotion of the country’s most vicious racist and anti-Semitic hate mongers, who now include the Nation of Islam’s Louis Farrakhan. First, however, let’s take a look at the standard consequences of hate speech by public figures, so our readers can apply these standards to Mr. Obama.
(1) James G Watt, US Secretary of the Interior. “I have a black, a woman, two Jews and a cripple.” Forced to resign.
(2) Trent Lott, U.S. Senator. “When Strom Thurmond ran for president, we voted for him. We’re proud of it. And if the rest of the country had followed our lead, we wouldn’t have had all these problems over the years, either.” When Strom Thurmond ran for President, he was a segregationist, although he had long repudiated segregationism when Lott praised him. Lott resigned as the Senate’s Republican leader.
(3) Don Imus, radio personality. Made a poor-taste joke about “nappy headed hos.” Dismissed from his job.
(4) Mel Gibson, actor. While drunk, made demeaning remarks about Jews. Apologized publicly.
(5) Mitt Romney, Presidential candidate. Made a speech at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn Michigan. Henry Ford published anti-Semitic material but later repudiated it. The National Jewish Democratic Council suggests that making a speech at the museum of a long-dead EX-antisemite disqualifies Romney.
Barack Obama: Posed for numerous photos with, and praised extensively, a prominent and unrepentant racist and anti-Semite who at least indirectly incited two fatal anti-Semitic and racist pogroms (Crown Heights, Freddy’s Fashion Mart) and played a major role in the racist Tawana Brawley scam. His pastor Jeremiah Wright has made racist remarks about “white America” getting its “wake up call” on 9/11, and the Trinity United Church of Christ awarded the “Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr. Trumpet” Award to Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam. Farrakhan is on record as calling Judaism a “gutter religion” while saying that “white people are potential humans,” but they “haven’t evolved yet.” Consequences: none. It is therefore up to us, and our readers, to expose this phony smile and empty suit for exactly what he is through the Internet, letters to the editor, and other media.
There is a lot more there that I have to read through and verify, but none of it is good. And… none of it is being reported by the mass media. You know that were Barack Obama a Republican, this would be reported all over… in detail… 24/7.
This is also quite interesting as Barack Obama is a main member of what looks to be an Islamic charity or civil rights organization of some such, Project Islamic HOPE, which describes itself thusly:
Project Islamic H.O.P.E. is a national civil rights organization that advocates for the human rights of oppressed People regardless of race, gender or religion.
Project Islamic H.O.P.E. follows the teachings of the Holy Quran and the example of Prophet Muhammad. (Peace Be Upon Him)
We support and follow the leadership of Imam W. Deen Mohammed, one of the world’s foremost Islamic leaders.
First of all, anyone following the example of Mohammad is to be questioned as to what example he is following. As we all know by now, Mohammad was no Jesus. Secondly, what teachings of the Koran are they following? The teachings that call for killing infidels? The teachings that say Jews and Christians are infidels and the equivalent of rats? And who is this Imam W. Deen Mohammad. For being “one of the world’s foremost Islamic leaders”, I haven’t heard of him. Of course, maybe that is a good thing. Usually the Islamic leaders who are well known are the radical ones calling women “uncovered meat” and calling for the stoning and hanging of women who get raped or incite their followers to violence over cartoons.
Also, I would be interested to find out if Barack Obama is also involved in some Christian charity groups, since he is, supposedly, a Christian, belonging to the ethno-centric, racist Trinity Church of Christ.
More to come after I research some of this stuff, but I encourage you all to do the same.
UPDATE at 00:42 EST on 13 JAN 2008: Verrrrry interesting. The Imam for the Project Islamic H.O.P.E., W. Deen Mohammad, is a member of the radical Islamist group Nation of Islam. So here we have yet another tie of Barack Obama to a radical Islamist group.
The move to mainstream Islam brought Wallace Deen’s organization considerable material benefit, including millions of dollars of donations from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. In 1985, Wallace Deen Muhammad dismantled the council of the American Muslim Mission, allowing for each organization’s mosques to incorporate independently. Most, however, remained affiliated with a successor organization, the Muslim American Society (of Calumet City, Illinois, as opposed to the Muslim American Society of Falls Church, Virginia). In 2002, the group once again changed its name to the American Society of Muslims.
Wallace Deen Muhammad’s efforts to integrate his teachings with mainstream Islam drew fire from both NOI and radical Islamic groups. NOI has portrayed him as a betrayer of the black supremacist movement, while radical Islamic groups believe he is too tame, citing public statements in which he has spoken approvingly of the Pope, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Frederick Douglass. Wallace Deen has responded by restoring alliances with Farrakhan and the NOI, and by radicalizing his Islamic message to please the fundamentalists, particularly the burgeoning immigrant population. His mosques and his movements are backed by a massive amount of Saudi Arabian cash (some experts claim that the Saudis and other oil-rich Arab nations have pumped 76 billion dollars to the West to foster the cause of Islam). He has also been more critical of U.S. support for Israel in recent years.According to Muhammad, U.S. foreign policy has aroused the wrath of Muslim nations around the world, thereby spawning terrorism aimed at American interests. He said in an interview: “The developments in the world, presently, not to mention the Crusades that are still in the minds of the Muslim world and not to mention 1947 when they were establishing Israel as a state in what was the home of the Jews and the Palestinians, the things happening now like the problem for the Palestinians and Israelis and Kashmir and India, all of these struggles on the minds of Muslims and especially for Muslim leaders, we can’t just look at what happened on the llth of September and isolate it from all these other things. What we have is a damaged psyche of the Muslim world and of most of the Islamic leaders. . . . I mean that these troubles in the world that have been used by them in their thinking to say: ‘This is why we don’t have peace in the world. It is because Christianity fought against us in the Crusades. It is because in colonial days, they imposed their life on us in our countries under a colonial state. And because of what they did in the Middle East to establish Israel over there on us and take Jerusalem as its capital.’ All of those things are on their minds. With these things on their minds, naturally they are becoming more bitter and more bitter. . .” In 2003, Wallace Deen Muhammad stepped down as head of the American Society of Muslims.
Does anyone else find it interesting that Barack Obama is involved with radical, racist Black Churches AND radical Islamist groups? And find it even more interesting that none of this has become mainstream public knowledge yet? Hmmm…
Also, with this kind of background, Barack Obama should be very careful about attacking people based on racism.
Steve Gilbert at the Conservative blog Sweetness and Light highlights in great detail the fascist agenda of the Democrats in the whole Don Imus situation. The hidden agenda in all of this is to shut down Conservative speech. In other words, the American Left is finally showing their true fascist colors.
They gave us a sneak peek when they threatened to revoke ABC’s broadcast license over “The Path to 9/11” mini-series which aired last year. They also give us sneak peeks periodically every time they shout down or throw things at Conservative speakers or rush the stage to shut down Conservative speeches held across the country. The most infamous example is when Leftists at Columbia University rushed the stage when the Minutemen were giving a speech about illegal immigration and shut down the speech. They also are giving us a sneak peek in their efforts to shut down debate about apocalyptic “man caused Global Warming”. Any scientific facts that are presented which counter their theory, they discard and disregard. Any scientist who presents facts and data which counter their theory, they threaten with taking away their funding or they smear them by saying they are paid by oil companies or call them the equivalent of Holocaust deniers. And let us not forget the push for the Democrats to bring back the “Fairness Doctrine”, which they are doing specifically to shut down popular and successful Conservative talk radio. (Thanks to Cory in the comments for the reminder)
And now, taking advantage of the mountain the Reverends Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton have made out of the molehill of the comments by Don Imus, the Democratic National Committee’s Media Arm is working to censor Conservative voices. This, ladies and gentlemen, is fascism. And it is coming from the Democrat Party. Also, of note, is that David Brock is connected to Hillary Clinton. This is just one more example of what would happen if we allow Democrats to take power in the White House. We will officially become a fascist state.
You will notice that the only people Media Matters calls out for censorship are personalities who are Conservatives. Apparently the racist, sexist, bigoted humor of such Left-wing outlets as Air America, Bill Maher and ABC’s The View are just fine and dandy.
This is not about censorship of racist, sexist and/or bigoted things said on the public airwaves. This is about shutting down thoughts and ideas of those opposed to Liberalism, Socialiasm and Communism. In other words, shutting down Conservatives. Liberals cannot defend their positions with logic and facts, so they have to use fascist tactics to win the debate.
We are heading towards dangerous, Orwellian times ahead if people do not wake up and fight the Left’s plans.
Via Steve Gilbert at Sweetness and Light: DNC’s Media Matters Wants Censorship of Airwaves
Have no fear fellow citizens, Media Matters For America is going to protect you from hearing “hate speech” on your radio.
As many here know, Media Matters is run by the professional propaganda hack David Brock.
Mr. Brock jumps on any chance to try to control free speech in this country. And the “nappy-headed” Imus incident is proving to be no exception.
From Media Matters:
It’s not just Imus
Thu, Apr 12, 2007 6:55pm EST
On April 11, NBC News announced that it was dropping MSNBC’s simulcast of Imus in the Morning in the wake of the controversy that erupted over host Don Imus’ reference to the Rutgers University women’s basketball team as “nappy-headed hos.” The following day, CBS president and CEO Leslie Moonves announced that CBS — which owns both the radio station that broadcast Imus’ program and Westwood One, which syndicated the program — has fired Imus and would cease broadcasting his radio show.
But as Media Matters for America has extensively documented, bigotry and hate speech targeting, among other characteristics, race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and ethnicity continue to permeate the airwaves through personalities such as Glenn Beck, Neal Boortz, Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly, Michael Savage, Michael Smerconish, and John Gibson…
[ . . . ]
And by “a higher standard” and “the fundamentals of journalism” Mr. Brock means barring the expression of any opinion that differs from his own — or more precisely, from the Democrat National Committee’s doctrine.
For while most people around here know that Media Matters is largely bankrolled by the self-confessed Nazi helper, convicted insider trader and fugitive from justice George Soros, it is also backed and run by top Democrats.
Go read the whole thing. It should anger you and make you sick to your stomach to know just how fascist is the Left in this country and their true evil plans they have in the works for America.
I encourage everyone to go read (and, if you are so inclined, comment on and leave kudos for) the blog of Beverly aka Whitney Blogston, a Black woman who puts the Don Imus manufactured “controversy” in proper perspective. Kudos to you, Beverly.
Here is her blog post: Imus is ousted, but rappers are allowed to stay? WHATEVER! (Updated)
The NYTimes considers what Don Imus said “deplorable, despicable and unconscionable”. Hmmm, so an irrelevant old white guy on an unpopular and irrelevent radio show calls some black women “nappy headed hos” and he is demonized and there are calls for him to be fired from Black “civil rights leaders” and women’s groups.
Yet, when the leader of Hezb’Allah (“Party of Allah”, the “god” of Muslims) states that Jews should die and Israel should be wiped off the map, the Left and the media state that we should try to understand their grievances, get to know why they feel this way.
When Muslims the world over are killing homosexuals, forcing their women to wear bags on their heads before they may leave the house, stoning women for adultery, committing “honor killings” of women for dating “infidels”, not allowing women to educate themselves, etc, the Left and the media state that we should try to understand the grievances of Muslims, get to know why they feel this way, multiculturalism donchaknow. No outrage from women’s groups.
When Iran states they want to wipe Israel off the map along with the rest of the Zionists of the world (ie the United States) and are working to obtain a nuclear weapon in order to do so, the Left and the media state that we need to try to understand their grievances, get to know why they feel this way, and send Nancy Pelosi to talk to them.
And when the Black Entertainment community degrades women and calls them “bitches” and “hos” and the Black “civil rights leadership” tells Blacks not to better themselves, because that would be selling out and “becoming White”, the Left and the media state we must understand their grievances with evil White man, get to know why they feel this way, and celebrate Black misogynistic culture.
As Jason Whitlock states, Imus is Not the Real Bad Guy.
And as Michelle Malkin notes, White people are not the ones who started “The Culture of Bitches, Niggas and Hos”.
Meanwhile, in a true case of blatant racism, in which people actually had their lives and reputations destroyed, the race-baiters are silent after contributing to destroying innocent men’s lives for the past year.
Sorry, the only thing that I find “deplorable, despicable and unconscionable” in this whole “controversy” are those hypocrits and attention-whores (or should I say attention-hos? or is it attention-bitches? or attention-niggas?) in the Black community, and others on the Left of all backgrounds, making this into a racist controversy and benefitting from the attention, while Black culture remains decadent and self-oppressive.
Why isn’t anyone saying that we need to try to understand the grievances of Don Imus and get to know why he feels this way? Maybe when the nappy-headed attention-hos at Rutgers meet with Mr. Imus, they will discuss this.
