Presidential candidate Barack Obama preaches on the campaign trail that America needs a new consensus based on faith and bipartisanship, yet he continues to attend a controversial Chicago church whose pastor routinely refers to "white arrogance" and "the United States of White America."
In fact, Obama was in attendance at the church when these statements were made on July 22. .....

If Barack needs a daily "spiritual advisor" to accompany him everywhere he goes then he (BO) is not very grounded in his so-called Christian faith. How many of us need a spiritual guru at our side every day?
It's all voodoo, eyewash, camouflage, humbug, trickery and flim-flam.....that's what it am.
I would think so. I refuse to be manipulated but I fear many here will get sucked in.
Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam must all be suffering from Stockholm Syndrome!
That said, I just sent an email to my son, encouraging him to sign on to FreeRepublic. He is absolutely conservative, and is about fed up with it all. He is retired AF Security Police, served in Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Andrews AF Base (when GHWB was vice-pres) and now provides security for special situations in the DC area.
It might really insult him if someone thought he might be a plant.....
He was all the way in the back.He was the one yelling "hallelujah" the loudest.
Our deepest gratitude to your son. Truly a son to take pride in.
It's not the date of the signup, it's the nature of the postings that catches one's attention. But you already know that :)
I wasn’t trying to be funny...
I was stone cold serious, and meant every word exactly as I typed them..
I take our National Anthem VERY seriously — and object VERY strongly when some semi literate untalented clown screeches it while rearranging it to sound like some crack head must be hearing it.
Have you listened to the song as sung at that event?
If not - you should, before lecturing me.
This election season is fraught with danger. The stakes are so high for our nation, and it is only going to get worse.
The democrats have almost completely destroyed the black community and family in the past 60 years, leaving burnt out neighborhoods bereft of any local businesses and role models.
Welfare, ADC, and all the other social programs became “the helping hand that strikes again”. Yet, conservatives and Republicans, who fought to end slavery are labeled by these misguided liberal idiots as the intolerant racists.
Exactly correct. The mainstream media wanted nothing to do with this story. The most recent mention of what Wright was really saying in the mainstream media was in January 2007 editions of the New York Times and Chicago Tribune. But you see, both Hillary and Obama have many friends and supporters in the mainstream media. So when they want a story to get broad, nationwide coverage before a large audience, their staff members leak it to their friends in the news media.
My son is also AF Security Forces. It sounds like yours had, and continues to have, an illustrious career. Congrats to you both :)
There’s no such thing as too many negative articles about Obama.
It's certainly not that that bothers me. It's obvious manipulators who come here not to provide information, but rather to watch the people of FR jump on like lemmings who can be whipped up into a mindless froth.
I sure would like to know what Harold Ickes and Bernie Nessbaum have been doing lately. Whenever there is a foul smell to a news event that favors the Clintons, I always wonder about the location these two characters.
to ALL: get the message: it's really NOT about "race". instead it's about inbred HATRED of others unlike themselves (who the "favored group" regards as "something less than they are")& a LUST for $$$$$$$$$$ & POWER, that motivates these creeps.
Some of their minions are right here among us, I believe. As I said, I don't like to see us manipulated. We can find information and assess it without the help of Clinton, Inc.
Welcome to FR.
Oh NO !!! Obama went to church...
Another FReeper for Hillary.
Hey, nothing is wrong with wearing Walmart clothes, that is unless your trying to run for president from the political party that has made a jihad against Walmart part of their political platform.
It follows the Clinton m.o. to a tee.
Until I knew for sure that it wasn’t, I would say it was/is.
Uncle and nephew schooling on the campaign trail...
Good grief! What a horrible rendition of the Star Spangled Banner.
Oh, thank you...
I thought I had gone horribly deaf in a horrble kind of way...
THAT IS THE ARTICLE...oBAMA’S mONEY mAVEN..i WOULD LIKE IT POSTED HERE ON fREEPR, YET IF IT IS JUST A LINK, YOU CAN’T GET IT.
oops..sorry about the caps...
Hello, I just happened along to this thread. I’m stuck with dial-up tonight but will see what I can do.
Maybe when you have speedier access you can just post the gist of it, lol.
Did anyone actually believe he wasn’t aware of what was going on? I mean, come on!
“I don’t place my hand over my heart for the Star Spangled Banner. But I do for the Pledge of Allegiance. I think that is pretty much the norm.”
Actually, no it’s not the norm.
That racist pig Ophra was there too . She adores this vile piece of human waste .I can’t stand that all these dumb ass white women swoon to Obama and Oprah , two scumbag racist pigs.
For ONCE I’d like to see the Republicans take advantage of our opponents weaknesses . we let EVERYTHING slip[ away. Lets see some Republican stand out and really ask Obama the HARD questions concerning this racist pig “pastore”.
We , right here, we have to PUSH AND PUSH AND PUSH until the general public knows what a racist bastard this Obama fraud really is.
He went to the damn church for 20 years , he can’t distance himself now . It’s way way too late to try that bullsh*t stunt.
“”I don’t place my hand over my heart for the Star Spangled Banner. But I do for the Pledge of Allegiance. I think that is pretty much the norm. Since this was the during the singing of the Star Spangled Banner I don’t see why it is such a big deal.
Am I missing something here?”
To salute, all persons come to attention. Those in uniform give the appropriate formal salute. Citizens not in uniform salute by placing their right hand over the heart and men with head cover should remove it and hold it to left shoulder, hand over the heart. Members of organizations in formation salute upon command of the person in charge.
The Pledge of Allegiance and National Anthem
The pledge of allegiance should be rendered by standing at attention, facing the flag, and saluting.
When the national anthem is played or sung, citizens should stand at attention and salute at the first note and hold the salute through the last note. The salute is directed to the flag, if displayed, otherwise to the music.
Obama knows the MSM will give him a pass and we have no one with balls on our side who would slam Obma on this .Everyone is too afraid to be called a racist by the real racist.
Bingo!!! Even John McCain says that we cannot call Senator B. (whose middle name must NEVER be spoken) Obama by his real middle name. So sad.
Stupid or arrogant?
If B H Obama did not know that Rev Wright was a Marxist Racist
after 20 years, then Obama is dumber than a box of rocks.
Personally I believe he is a liar and a Racist and a Marxist himself.
Even Mrs. Clinton put her hand over the area where her heart should be.
Screwtape Letters are a must read for any thinking person.
We had soooooo many chances to slam the Dems inthe past 2 years and we stood by with our thumbs up our butts. This can be and should be the END of Obama.It’s up to us to make it so . If he was white he’d be washed up and left for dead already . So why the double standard? Oh yea, I forgot , black racism is acceptable .
Bingo , give this man a cigar.
He can put whatever spin on it he (or his apologists) like,,,but,,,anyone who....
associates with a blatant bigot like Wright,,,,
was married by a blatant bigot like Wright,,,,

and considers a blatant bigot like Wright a close friend for over 20 years,,,,
