Skip to comments.Barack and Michelle Obama Belonged to a Racist Organization
Posted on 06/02/2008 10:47:45 AM PDT by Winged Hussar
Suppose that a political candidate of the Caucasian persuasion belonged to a church whose minister (call him JimCrow White for the sake of argument) consorted openly with the Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, and arranged an award for the Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. The same minister proclaimed that the Black people in New Orleans got a wake-up call with Hurricane Katrina. This ministers replacement then welcomed a guest speaker who proclaimed from the pulpit, with the churchs tax exempt resources, that There were a whole lot of Black people crying because the candidates African-American opponent was behind in the polls. The latter remark draws a standing ovation from the largely white congregation, after which the minister says, Thank God for the message, and thank God for the messenger. There would be little question that this church was a racist hate organization, and Barack and Michelle Obama have belonged to such an organization for the past twenty years.
Barack and Michelle Obamas membership in a racist organization is entirely consistent with the Black Nationalism that Obama describes in his own book, Dreams From My Father. It is also consistent with Michelle Obamas senior thesis, in which she says her principal commitment is to the Black community while describing the problems that come from racial integration. They joined an organization that they knew to be racist, and they remained in that organization despite its promotion not only of racism but hatred of the United States, hatred of Israel, and promotion of actual terrorists.

Makes you wonder what church Robert Byrd attends.
From NR today.
Do You still attend Trinity?
Yep. Every week. 11 oclock service.
Ever been there? Good service.
I actually wrote a book called Dreams from My Father, its kind of a meditation on race. Theres a whole chapter on the church in that, and my first visits to Trinity.
I think what Obama meant to say is, “Every week, except when Wright is planning on saying something controversial, I stay home so I can deny it later in other words, I hardly ever attend.” There’s also this:
Do you have people in your life that you look to for guidance?
Well, my pastor is certainly someone who I have an enormous amount of respect for.
I have a number of friends who are ministers. Reverend Meeks is a close friend and colleague of mine in the state Senate. Father Michael Pfleger is a dear friend, and somebody I interact with closely.
and it is for all the above reasons that Barack Obama will not be elected president.
Obama's Preacher Problems Mean Nothing to Hussein ObamaMessiaHamas's Fanatical Cult and to Hussein ObamaMessiaHamas.
Câmon now. You know blacks can not be racist. They must be judged by a different standard because of the color of their skin, and not by the content of their character. /sarc
Not missed here. More sickening than Mr. Wright's and Pfleger's miss-use of the pulpit, was the manner in which the people in this 'church' lapped it up. This is supposed to be a place and time (Sunday) where Christ is preached -- but instead hate was served - and the people loved it...
30 A wonderful ['amazing'] and horrible thing is committed in the land;
31 The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?
Good info. Thanks.

Similarly, the point that a lot of people are missing is not Michael Pfleger's racist hate speech from the pulpit of Barack and Michelle Obama's church, but the enthusiastic reaction of the Obamas' fellow congregants. These are the people with whom the Obamas have gone to church for twenty years.
This is an excellent point. It cannot be overemphasized.
“Similarly, the point that a lot of people are missing is not Michael Pflegers racist hate speech from the pulpit of Barack and Michelle Obamas church, but the enthusiastic reaction of the Obamas fellow congregants.”
I have only heard ORielly comment on that-no other journalists. But, it is basic to the whole issue of Obama and his association with Wright. Wright is incidental to the whole flap. What matters is that a great many people support Wright or would support someone else just like him, (materially and ideologically) otherwise, none of the outrageous hate speech would have gone on for so very long in that church.
How could a man who wants to lead this country have spent so much time in that environment and not know instinctively that he was out of his element, unless he thought he was IN his element there? Conservatives should NEVER drop this issue and should hammer Obama with it ad infinitum right up till election day! Obama does NOT belong in the WH, and neither does any one with such very extreme views. Extremism will not serve this country!!!
Didn't Hagee make some disparaging remarks about Katrina?
Who’s this, one of Obama’s precinct captains?
True, but they get a free pass for obvious reasons.
(the media want Obama to be president)
Gadzooks! I can never tell which is which... on those last two.
Where do you draw the line between a hate group and a grievance group? Or between racism and the kind of political animosities that are all too familiar? Or between being affirmative or positive about one’s own group and running down others? Or between what amuses people as entertainment and what they truly believe. It’s not always clear-cut. I’m not saying you’re wrong about Wright and Obama, just that some people are way too happy to throw the r word around as freely as the left does.
Great toons. I email these to many people. Keep it up.
Will do, but occasionally... e-mail me a case of Lone Star Draft or a gallon of 1800 Gold Tequilia.
Uh.....they better look again..
Seems like the brood mares and leaches went back to sleep, or back to their life of dependency on others, drugs, crime and breeding bastards.
Lone Star is skunk beer I wouldn’t foist on the worst liberal.
I can tell without going to your FR homepage you ain't from Texas! Good, that leaves more Lone Star for me to drink!
I went to HS for a year in Austin back in the yesteryear. I also lived for 4 years in College Station home of Texas A&M where I captured a graduate degree. Have you been to Langtry? Del Rio? Marfa? GunBarrel City? Dimebox?
I am 4th generation Texan and have been to all those places plus Elm Flats, Rural Shade, Cut and Shoot (Did the school photography there in '73), Adobe Walls, Nockenut, La Grange, Luckenbock, Back City, Bay City, Bridge City and, of course, the before mentioned Gun Barrel City that is just a hoot and hollow from me here in the Big C called Corsicana rank outsiders.
The bottom line to our disagreement is your saying Lone Star is skunk beer. Opinions, especially over beer, are like rectums. Every one has at least one.
Well, I've know a few native Texan who preferred another brand over Lone Star. My old Pappy liked Schlitz the best, my Grandpappy Pabst Blue Ribbon but neither one nor any other beer drinking Texan I know would turn down an ice cold Lone Star.
So, as I said earlier, if you don't like Lone Star, fine. That leaves more for me!
BTW I mention La Grange because it is the setting for my favorite Aggie Joke:
These two Aggies were hicthhiking through La Grange and hit a slow patch of highway. All the cars would head right for the Aggies, but turn off into a driveway just before them.
The cars would all go up the road to this huge house. The men in the cars would get out and ring the doorbell. A beautiful woman would come to the door, give the men a big smile. The men would pull out their wallets and give the woman a hundred dollar bill. The woman would then smile wider and invite them inside.
After a half hour or so, the men would come back out with huge smiles on their faces. They would they get back into their car and drive down the driveway and turn on the road going away from the Aggies.
"Say, Pard," the taller of the two Aggies said to the other. "That woman up there must be selling something really wonderful!"
"She sure must be," replied the short Aggie. "Wonder what it is?"
After most of an entire afternoon had passed with the Aggies watching car after car come and go, they both finally decided to got see for themselves what the woman was selling.
They walked up to the door, but the tall Aggies suddenly said, "Whoa, Pard, we need to see how much money we got!"
They pooled what funds they had between them and it came up to one dollar and sixteen cents.
The short Aggies rang the doorbell and when the woman opened the door, she was exceptionally beautiful and her smile was dazzling.
The Aggies smiled back and the tall one held out his hand with the $1.16 in his palm.
The smile vanished from the beautiful lady and she stepped back into the house. The Aggies followed her and she simply said, "George?"
She walked away as the biggest black man either of those two Aggies had ever seen came up and grabbed them both by the neck. He took them out back of the house and proceeded to beat the living crap out of each. Finished, he dragged their unconscious bodies down the driveway and dumped them on the side of the highway.
About and hour later, the Aggies started to came to. The tall one raised up on his elbow and say, "Pard, I don't think I could'a stood a hundred dollars of that!"
I've also heard Aggie tell relay this tale with two Teasips being the hitchhikers. Once I even hear it told as two Southern Methodist undergrads, but I don't believe that for a moment. Hell, them Hilltop boys always had scads of cash on them from their rich daddies!
So in complete truthfulness, I must admit I did attend SMU. I went one semester of law school there and it taught me a valuable lesson. I discovered I had more than enough testicular fortitude, the pure gall and a big enough bladder to be a lawyer, but the liberal bullscattis was too deep for me to wade past 30 more months of it!
