On the Sunday before the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett visited Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta to give a political speech, in support of her boss (Barack Obama) and congressional Democrats. "We all sleep a little better at night knowing Osama Bin Laden and his lieutenants are not plotting a terrorist attack against the United States," she said, eliciting applause from the crowd. There was also a brief jab at Republicans. "Teachers, and firefighters, and policemen, whose jobs are now in jeopardy because congress, well let me be specific, because the Republicans in congress ..."

Please provide me the place in the Constitution that says "provide police, firefighters, and teachers with BAILOUTS FOR UNION MEMBERS so Democrats have a source of cash for re-election"?????, as mandated for Congress????
Can we assume this wasn’t during normal Sunday church services ? oh silly me...
Jarrett is a socialists/communists. Nothing new here.
I’m sure Rev. Write would approve of her propaganda.
Nope, since that is a myth and has been debunked here repeatedly.
Does Ebenezer have a tax-exempt status ? If yes, it needs to be revoked.
How well do I sleep knowing Obama is negotiating with the Taliban, abandoned Iraq, betrayed Israel, and Iran is developing an atom bomb?
Which president wouldn’t have killed OBL?
“Did anyone think to remind her that MLK was a Republican?”
I just had several posters send me unsolicited links(solicited only in that I posted to an earlier thread about MLK)that demonstrate that MLK was a communist. I don’t think that you can be both (well not yet anyway).
“Which president wouldnt have killed OBL?”
Why they’re right next top the words “Separation of Church and State”. It would be ironic if it were true.
How many times does a commie ‘RAT think a person has to register to vote? Monthly? Weekly? Daily?
Valerie Jarrett-Iranian of the Day!!
A few facts about Dr. King that many people (and I suspect Valerie Jarrett) don’t know:
1.) Dr. King was a registered Republican, as was his father Dr. Martin Luther King Sr.
(source: Alveda C. King, niece of Dr. MLK Jr., and she ought to know, if anyone)
2.) Dr. King and civil rights activists in the late 1950’s sought out and were welcomed by the Eisenhower Administration in discussions over how best to guarantee equal civil rights for ALL Americans, regardless of race, creed or color.
3.) It was the aforementioned Eisenhower Administration (Republican) who sent troops to Little Rock Arkansas in 1957 to guaranteed the civil rights (and the safety) of black high school students who were being denied entry to Little Rock High School by DEMOCRAT Governor Orval Faubus.
3.) Former Democratic Governor of South Carolina Ernest Hollings in 1960 led the fight against ‘lunch counter integration’ saying “South Carolina will not permit ‘explosive’ manifestations in connection with Negro demands for lunch-counter services” calling then President Eisenhower ‘confused’ and causing “great damage to peace and good order” by supporting the rights of minorities to protest segregation at the lunch counters. Hollings went on to be elected Senator and in the late 1980’s still referred to blacks as “darkies”. An equal opportunity bigot, Hollings likewise referred to hispanics as ‘wetbacks’, and consistently slurred Jews as well.
4.) In 1961, segregationist Democrat Eugene ‘Bull’ Connor, the Birmingham Alabama Commissioner for ‘Public Safety’ ordered Birmingham police to stay away from the local Trailways bus station while Ku Klux Klansmen attacked the Freedom Riders, who were touring the South to protest segregation. In 1963, Connor ordered Birmingham police officers and firemen to use dogs and high-pressure water hoses against demonstrators. Connor was a highly influential Democrat, serving as a delegate to FIVE Democratic conventions from 1948 up to 1968.
5.) Former Democratic Governor of Georgia Lester Maddox first came to attention in 1964 when he refused to serve blacks at his infamous ‘Pickrick Restaurant’, where he also sold axe handles for the insinuated purpose of using them to beat ‘uppity’ blacks. When three black Georgia Tech students entered his restaurant, Maddox waved a pistol at them and said: “You no good dirty devils! You dirty Communists!” and joined by some of his racist customers, drove the students out of the restaurant.
6.) Former Democratic Governor of Alabama George Wallace became known for his ‘stand in the schoolhouse door’, blocking the entry of black students to a predominantly white school, it took federal marshals, a Deputy Attorney General and National Guard troops to convince him to step aside in 1963, his notorious words became likewise well known, “segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever”. To Wallace’s credit, he disavowed his racist positions in his later years, regaining the Governor’s Office based largely upon black voters who believed he was sincere in his repentance and forgave him.
7.) When President Lyndon Johnson was seeking to have the Civil Rights Act of 1964 passed, he faced a filibuster by segregationist, racist Senators led by former Ku Klux Klansman Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia, Al Gore Senior of Tennessee among others, the bill was passed only with the support and assistance of REPUBLICAN Senators who rejected the institutional racism of many of their Democrat fellow Senators.
So there is a brief but far from finished history lesson regarding the Last Plantation, aka the Democratic Party, which has made great sport over the years by referring to black conservatives (Herman Cain anyone?) who dare to challenge the left-liberal orthodoxy as “Uncle Toms” but one need only take a good look at the current occupant of the White House to fully understand just “who” sold out to “who”.
And Valerie? Did you know that it was DEMOCRATS who were integral in the formation and organization of the Ku Klux Klan itself?
Well now you know.
Happy Martin Luther King Day.
I’m not aware that she’s a Christian with a Christian testimony to share. A politician with a purely political message has no place in the pulpit during Sunday service. Its not proper.
I realize that for a conservative his politics are very much informed by his religious beliefs. But he would not allow a purely political message from the pulpit, even one he agreed with.
For a leftist, his politics is his religion. I understand that in the case of an atheist. In the case of a church, though, it seems that politics has replaced God and no one noticed. Hence Reverend Wright in the pulpit. Hence Valerie Jarret in the pulpit.
(Goes in both directions...I'd be happy to be corrected IF you can supply substantiation.)
Hmmmmm...I wonder why the leftists hate Fox News so much...too much daylight being shed on their bad behavior.
