Widespread Consensus: Obama Promotes Anti-Semitism, Racism, Hatred of Israel
IsraPundit ^ | 2/23/08 | Bill Levinson

Posted on 02/23/2008 2:44:59 PM PST by Winged Hussar

A growing number of bloggers such as Richard Cohen, Brigitte Gabriel, Sharon Hughes, Charles Krauthammer, Kenneth Blackwell, Naomi Ragen, Debbie Schlussel, Ed Lasky, and William Levinson are pointing out Barack Obama’s numerous connections to unsavory individuals and organizations that espouse and promote hatred of Jews, Catholics, white people, Israel, and/or the United States. By “connections” we do not mean casual social contacts, but Obama’s deliberate efforts to seek out these entities and gain their support.

...Naomi Ragen

Naomi Ragen dismisses the “smear” and makes frontal attack on Obama

The Jews who are considering voting for Obama (or Clinton) should be doing a lot more research. Even if they don’t care if Israel is wiped off the map, do you really want a man whose Church gives out awards to people like Louis Farrakhan? Do you want a man whose volunteers sit under Che Guevara posters (according to the picture shown on KRIV-TV iin Texas)?

How many times can a voter turn his head and pretend that he just doesn’t see?

Richard Cohen: Obama’s Farrakhan Test

Barack Obama is a member of Chicago’s Trinity United Church of Christ. Its minister, and Obama’s spiritual adviser, is the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. In 1982, the church launched Trumpet Newsmagazine; Wright’s daughters serve as publisher and executive editor. Every year, the magazine makes awards in various categories. Last year, it gave the Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. Trumpeter Award to a man it said “truly epitomized greatness.” That man is Louis Farrakhan.

Maybe for Wright and some others, Farrakhan “epitomized greatness.” For most Americans, though, Farrakhan epitomizes racism, particularly in the form of anti-Semitism. Over the years, he has compiled an awesome record of offensive statements, even denigrating the Holocaust by falsely attributing it to Jewish cooperation with Hitler — “They helped him get the Third Reich on the road.” His history is a rancid stew of lies.

Brigitte Gabriel ("Speaker at federation event slammed for calling Obama an ‘anti-Semite’")

“Barack Obama is an anti-Semite,” said Gabriel, who founded the nonprofit organization American Congress for Truth following the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

Plenty more material is available with the article, which is a complition of ten different references that show that, even if Obama is not a racist, anti-Semite, Catholic-hater, and America-hater himself, he promotes and empowers individuals and organizations that hold those viewpoints.

The problem with American Jews is they are liberals first and Jews second.

American Jews should be voting for conservative Republicans; these conservatives are the staunchest supporters of the State of Israel.

This smells of Clinton’s privy. Obama disavowed the Farrakan award from his church. He is not going to turn his back on the people that brought him to the party. I am a hardened conservative but this stinks to high democrat heaven.

The Jewish Democrat vote is going to bail on Barry Hussein, watch and see. They bailed on Jimmy Carter (over 40% voted for Reagan),but thats going to look like a walk in the park compared to this time.

Obama is not a uniter, hes a divider: Black vs. Jew, single woman vs. married woman, taxpayer vs. taxgetter. .. His chances don't look so good to me, if he gets the nomination.

Does anyone live in Chicago who could get a hold of all those publications that come out of the church? the library near there would probably be on their list of drop off points. Some snopping could be helpful...most MSM are afraid to go there because of being called a rascist.

Yeah, I can see the Jewish vote going more for McCain than Obama. At the same time, it's hard to imagine that vote making much of a difference in any state other than perhaps Florida where Jewish voters make up about 5 percent of the electorate.

Obama’s “church” website is already on whitewash. Their tenet of “allegiance” first to Africa now has been changed to a “commitment” to Africa. I don’t think their allegiance has changed one iota, it just needs to be made more palatable to the American people. One does not generally join a church whose views they find objectionable; one joins a church that espouses what one believes.

“You can take the man out of Islam...”

Yup; why I’d be willing to bet that he’d give the Fatah terrorists an even bigger subsidy than Bush’s $500,000,000.00 one. I hear he really does plan to out grovel and out subsidize Bush when it comes to Mohammedan terrorism. It has to do with the legacy thing and since it looks like Bush has cornered the market on destroyed Christian communities, Obama will just have to double that blood money to Fatah. Then he can go hold hands with and dance with and kiss Saudi royals, telling them how much we American love and respect their Religion of Peace and make us all so very proud like Bush has! :)

He may not be in control of his destiny. I recall that G-d put’s into leadership whom He wants...It may be that he might be like Pharoah—Put into office to make it hard enough on the Jews to CRY OUT TO THE G-D OF JACOB for salvation..I don’t want my brothers to suffer and my prayer is that they chose G-d and not the world.

I firmly believe that if Jews were to leave Israel and give everything there over to Palestinians that inside of a year there would be no production of anything there, there would be garbage filling the streets and it would be the same kind of hell-hole Palestinians “create” everywhere.

“Obama disavowed the Farrakan award from his church.”

In a way that KKK member would disavow some particular action of KKK that brought too much negative publicity.

Hillary or No Hillary, these are facts.

Also, I don’t think idea of defeating a socialist by supporting a bigger socialist works.

Our foreign policy is nonsensical at best. We’re fighting a methodology, terrorism, while aiding its proponents, Muslims, while opposing our natural allies, Christians...particularly those in the greater Balkans who have fought against Muslim domination and imperialism since the rise of the ruthless Ottomans in the 13th century.

“This smells of Clinton’s privy. Obama disavowed the Farrakan award from his church. He is not going to turn his back on the people that brought him to the party. I am a hardened conservative but this stinks to high democrat heaven.”

I know that Obama distanced himself from Farrakhan, but not from the church that made the award. Suppose that a member of our party belonged to a church that gave an award to the Grand Wizard of the KKK. The Democrats would crucify him if he didn’t quit that church.

Many of the bloggers and columnists in question, including myself, are Republicans or at least conservative Democrats (DINOs to the MoveOn.org crowd). If Clinton is the nominee, I will work for her defeat (noting that she, like Obama, also promoted and endorsed Al Sharpton).

“The problem with American Jews is they are liberals first and Jews second.

I call the National Jewish Democratic Council the National Judenrat Democratic Capos (Kapos = concentration camp trustees and collaborators with the Nazis). The actual kapos had the excuse that they had guns to their heads, often literally, but NJDC collaborates with and whitewashes anti-Semites all on its own.

Union for Reform Judaism (formerly Union of American Hebrew Congregations, a double oxymoron) = MoveOn.org with Jewish holidays.

I am speaking as a Jewish voter, by the way. These organizations do not represent me in any way, and I wish they would drop the word “Jewish” from their names.

Thanks, I will check Google’s cache immediately and post the original all over the Internet. I did that to MoveOn.org’s Action Forum back in 2006, and the Action Forum no longer exists. With any luck, Obama’s candidacy will go the same way.

Obama himself is in whitewash mode. He was scheduled to attend the “State of the Black Union” meeting on CSPAN and fully intended to go, but then decided not to at the last minute. These meetings of the Black elite are filled with some of the most conspiratorial, anti-Israel, and America-hating rhetoric you will ever hear ourside of a Communist Party rally. Obama obviously didn’t want to willingly pull his own covers by attending this hatefest.

Ho Hum! Jews are only 2 percent of the population. Obama doesn’t need them. He’s getting money from Muslim immigrants and Indian immigrants, both of which groups do rather well here. In the past Muslim terror front group CAIR has issued statements of support for Obama’s actions—as when , two years ago, he criticized State Department efforts to tighten up visa issuance to applicants from Muslim countries. Obama called it unacceptable “profiling” and said it violated the “human rights” of these foreign Muslims.
Also, the generation of American Jews that cared about Israel is passing. Young, modern, liberal Democrat Jews love Israel about as much as they love America— which is not very much at all.

I concur in your assessment. I am still hoping for a Dim Convention floor fight for the nomination where the Wicked Witch of the West steals the nomination from Obama. Popcorn, wings, and beer in waiting for the event..

I am VERY concerned for Israel’s future. We are heavily fragmented and under assault from seditionist Dims from within and Islam from without. And our old commie buddies are starting to stir things up again. Doesn't look good.

God forbid any of you have to face the reality of what your man Bush has done to this country and Eastern Christian communities. Its so much easier to ignore the dead Christians and Jews piling up at the orders of the Wahabis over the past 7 years and demonize someone who, for all his faults, has exactly zero responsibility for them.

I don’t doubt for an instant that Obama would do better if only because only the likes of Hitlery or McCain could do worse. What do you think, seriously.

“Who are you going to blame after Jan 2009?”

Maybe I’ll blame most of my generation for not doing better, or for not doing at least as good as my parents’ generation. I certainly hope the kids do better than we have. Down deep, I think they will if they are given the chance. But the policies of the Clintons and the Bushes and their followers will doom this country if they haven’t already.
