Skip to comments.Obama's church must not be forgotten
Posted on 06/05/2008 11:04:05 AM PDT by Eurale
Senator Obama is now trying to erase his personal history by resigning from his radical Left church, after two decades of active membership -- that's more than 1,000 Sunday sermons over twenty years. The media will do their best to help him fuzz over that history, just as they have tried to eradicate the memory of the Twin Towers and Pentagon assaults seven years ago. Yet the evidence is overwhelming by now that Trinity United is a front for the hard Left, which is trying to turn American blacks into another angry proletariat, to be played and controlled by their new ideological masters.

This is preaching of race hatred for selfish political ends. The aim is not to help black people to rise and become strong as individuals, but to divide and conquer Americans, to slice and dice them into race, gender and sexual orientations in order to empower the Left. It is the worst kind of human exploitation.
If we really are to have an honest conversations on race in this country, we must identify professional race-baiters who make hay by mentally enslaving vulnerable black people, just as much as they were physically enslaved and exploited during slavery and Jim Crow.
According to Pope Benedict, Liberation Theology is a Marxist ideology. It's worth remembering that Benedict is old enough to have seen all this before -- from the Nazis when he was young, to Communism in Germany, to Liberation Theology in the Church as he was growing older. Black Liberation Theology is just a ripe fruit dropping from a very old and bloody tree.
The Rev. Wright, Rev. Moss, Rev. Meeks, the demonic Father Pfleger, Rev. Willie Brown, Louis Farrakhan and the whole Black Liberation movement -- they must not be forgotten, just because Obama and the media want us to. Not just for this election alone, but because the crypto-Marxist churches and their allies in ACORN and the radical Left have deliberately been making things worse for ghetto blacks. This follows the old Leninist maxim that people should be made to feel worse about their social conditions in order to bring about the Revolution.
That is why Rev. Wright is constantly teaching black people that they are trapped in misery for life, and why his disciple Rev. Moss tells his black congregants that they suffer from a "skin disease," because being black is like "having leprosy", and whites will never, ever accept them. If you are convinced by your leadership that you have leprosy for life, you must hate those who have infected you with that disease, just as in BLT mythology blacks were maliciously infected with AIDS. That is why that "black is leprosy" story is injected over and over again at Trinity United. Trinity teaches victimology -- not self-respect and self-empowerment.
This is the most destructive idea possible for a group of African-Americans who have in fact been constantly victimized -- in recent decades not by Jim Crow, but by black-on-black crime, drugs, and social pathology. Black Liberation Leftists tell blacks to hate a phony enemy --- the white "oppressors" who do things like spread AIDS in the black ghettos. Since the Civil Rights Acts of fifty years ago, ordinary decent whites have tried to bring healing to the racial divide -- through affirmative action, through trillions of dollars spent on the War on Poverty, mandatory school busing, through individual churches and synagogues, through charities, and through hundreds of other, private means.
But some blacks, like the Obamas and other TUCC congregants, have deliberately subjected themselves to weekly messages of racial despair and provocation. The Obamas stayed there for twenty years, some 1,000 Sundays, in part because of their political ambitions to make it big in the Chicago Democrat Machine. But another reason they stayed must have been a genuine acceptance of the radical preaching of all those Leftie Revs. Can you imagine 20 years of listening to this stuff, week after week, if you totally disagreed with it? It would be mental torture.
We have to assume that after 20 years the Obamas have soaked BLT into the very fiber of their beings. Barack, Michelle, their poor little daughters -- they have been drenched in this propaganda year after year. Repetition works. In North Korea the rulers expose the enslaved populace to public loudspeakers constantly dinning home the message from Dear Leader Kim Jong Il, over and over and over again. You can't escape it. No normal human being can withstand that kind of psychological assault; it infiltrates your brain, no matter how hard you try to resist.
The Obamas have chosen to hear those preachings for two whole decades most likely because they believed in it. Black Liberation Theology is the filter through which they see the world.
Senator Obama has accidentally torn the cover off a suppurating wound that has been scratched and scratched by the race-baiting Left until it doesn't stop bleeding anymore.
Americans would be fools if we let this running scandal be covered up, and go on to poison our body politic.
Let the sun continue to shine on Black Liberation Theology, and all the other exploitative efforts to make blacks more miserable and to aggravate racial hostilities for political payoffs. Sunshine is the best disinfectant.
Malik Zulu Shabazz, chairman of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense (NBPP):
"We are happy today to be standing side by side with the Nation of Islam. We believe, like the Nation of Islam and the Honorable Elijah Muhammad believe, in a nation of our own. We believe in a Black first philosophy and a Black Liberation Theology. We dont worry about the criticism. We love all of those who labored in the Panther Party from the 60s. Many are with us today."

[1960s] Black Panther Party [BPP] Archives
From the article: REVOLUTIONARY HEROES
"On May 1st, May Day , the day of the gigantic Free Huey rally, two of Alioto's top executioners vamped on the brothers from the Brown Community who were attending to their own affairs. These brothers, who are endowed with the revolutionary spirit of the Black Panther Party defended themselves from the racist pig gestapo.
Pig Joseph Brodnik received his just reward with a big hole in the chest. Pig Paul McGoran got his in the mouth which was not quite enough to off him.
The revolutionary brothers escaped the huge swarm of pigs with dogs, mace, tanks and helicopters, proving once again that "the spirit of the people is greater than the man's technology."
To these brothers the revolutionary people of racist America want to say, by your revolutionary deed you are heroes, and that you are always welcome to our camp."

The Real Story Behind Rev. Wright's Controversial Black Liberation Theology Doctrine
Monday , May 5, 2008
[special Friday night edition--original airdate May 2, 2008]
(some key excerpts)
JOSE DIAZ-BALART, TELEMUNDO NETWORK: "Liberation theology in Nicaragua in the mid-1980's was a pro-Sandinista, pro-Marxist, anti-U.S., anti-Catholic Church movement. That's it. No ifs, ands, or buts. His church apparently supported, in the mid-'80s in Nicaragua, groups that supported the Sandinista dictatorships and that were opposed to the Contras whose reason for being was calling for elections. That's all I know. I was there.
I saw the churches in Nicaragua that he spoke of, and the churches were churches that talked about the need for violent revolution and I remember clearly one of the major churches in Managua where the Jesus Christ on the altar was not Jesus Christ, he was a Sandinista soldier, and the priests talked about the corruption of the West, talked about the need for revolution everywhere, and talked about 'the evil empire' which was the United States of America."
REV. BOB SCHENCK, NATIONAL CLERGY COUNCIL: "it's based in Marxism. At the core of his [Wright's] theology is really an anti-Christian understanding of God, and as part of a long history of individuals who actually advocate using violence in overthrowing those they perceive to be oppressing them, even acts of murder have been defended by followers of liberation theology. That's very, very dangerous."
SCHENCK: "I was actually the only person escorted to Dr. Wright. He asked to see me, and I simply welcomed him to Washington, and then I said Dr. Wright, I want to bring you a warning: your embrace of Marxist liberation theology. It is contrary to the Gospel, and you need, sir, to abandon it. And at that he dropped the handshake and made it clear that he was not in the mood to dialogue on that point."

Obama's Church: Gospel of Hate

In March of 2007, FOX News host Sean Hannity had engaged Obamas pastor in a heated interview about his Churchs teachings. For many viewers, the ensuing shouting match was their first exposure to "Black Liberation Theology"...
Like the pro-communist Liberation Theology that swept Central America in the 1980s and was repeatedly condemned by Pope John Paul II, Black Liberation Theology combines warmed-over 1960s vintage Marxism with carefully distorted biblical passages. However, in contrast to traditional Marxism, it emphasizes race rather than class. The Christian notion of "salvation" in the afterlife is superseded by "liberation" on earth, courtesy of the establishment of a socialist utopia.
"It ain't about Allah"...
Louis Farrakhan, at the Millions More Movement rally in DC, Oct 15, 2005: "...what Mao Tse Tung did was, he went to the cultural community, and they [Farrakhan spreads his arms beneficently] accepted his idea."..."Mao Tse Tung ... had a billion people whose lives he had to transform."..."the idea of Mao Tse Tung became the idea of a billion people, and China became a world power on the base of the culture and the arts community. If we had a ministry of art and culture in every city we'd create this movement [in the U.S.]."
Louis Farrakhan, Santiago de Cuba, February, 1998: "There is not a member of the black masses in the United States who is not proud of the example set by Cuba and its revolution, with Comandante Fidel at its head"
Louis Farrakhan, at the annual Saviours' Day celebration in Chicago, Feb. 25, 2008: "This young man is the hope of the entire world that America will change and be made better"..."If you look at Barack Obama's audiences and look at the effect of his words, those people are being transformed."
Rev. Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Obama's pastor and
spirtual advisor "crazy uncle" of more than 20 years, honors "Honorable" Minister Louis Farrakhan with the "Jeremiah A. Wright Lifetime Achievement Trumpeteer Award" at the 2007 Trumpet Gala held at the Hyatt Regency Chicago.

From "45 Communist Goals":
#27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion.
From the American Spectator:
"Does the name Fuerzas Armadas de Liberacion Nacional -- Armed Forces of National Liberation -- ring a bell? You may remember this charming group by its initials, FALN. A so-called revolutionary group determined to bring about Puerto Rican independence through violence. As reminded in a detailed February 12, 2008 article in the Wall Street Journal by Debra Burlingame, it was FALN that was responsible for a New Year's Eve, 1982 bombing at One Police Plaza in New York. The explosion ripped the lower leg off of Police Officer Rocco Pascarella. ...
April 1998: [Janet] Reno's deputy attorney general Eric Holder meets with Paul Sherry, who is advocating clemency for FALN members. One wonders whether any responsibility for the loss of Officer Rocco Pascarella's leg, the blinding of Detective Senft's one eye, the shattering of his facial bones and the fracturing of his hip, as well as the complete blinding of Detective Pastorella and the loss of all the fingers of his right hand, was discussed. ...
Paul Sherry is actually the Reverend Paul Sherry, who, at the time he was meeting with the Deputy Attorney General of the United States to request clemency for the perpetrators of such horrific acts, was, I am sorry to say, the president of the United Church of Christ -- the denomination that Senator Obama and I share. Reverend Sherry's request -- and he certainly was not alone -- was granted. As Ms. Burlingame and many others, notably the website UCC Truths, have noted, on August 11, 1999 clemency was indeed offered by President Clinton to the FALN terrorists. Twelve accepted in less than a month, and over the objections of then-Democratic Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan of New York, the terrorists were granted their freedom."
"No issue has bothered me more than the UCC's relationship with convicted Puerto Rican terrorists that are responsible for over 150 bombings in the U.S. during the 70's and 80's. There is no moral or theological reason for defending members of this group who have killed and injured dozens of people. What is further shocking and completely contradictory to any of our beliefs is that there is no record (in the nearly 30 years that the UCC has been advocating for these terrorists) that our denomination ever reached out to the victims of FALN violence."
From the website of UCC (United Church of Christ)
March 17, 2008:
"Over the weekend members of our church and others have been subjected to the relentless airing of two or three brief video clips of sermons by the Rev. Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr., pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ for thirty-six years and, for over half of those years, pastor of Senator Barack Obama and his family. These video clips, and news stories about them, have been served up with frenzied and heated commentary by media personalities expressing shock that such language and sentiments could be uttered from the pulpit."
"Between 1974 and 1985 the FALN (Puerto Rican Armed Forces of National Liberation) organized 120 terrorist bombings in the United States. Many Americans were killed in those bombings, and many more were crippled. In 1983, another Puerto Rican terrorist group known as the Macheteros, attacked and robbed a Wells Fargo armored car in Connecticut. The Macheteros intended to use the money to finance a terrorist campaign against the United States. Working under the cover of Puerto Rican nationalism and claiming to act on behalf of the 'oppressed people of Puerto Rico,' the FALN and the Macheteros are nothing but Communist revolutionaries. Both groups were organized by Fidel Castro's secret police. The ultimate goal of the FALN and the Macheteros is the creation of an independent Marxist-Leninist dictatorship on the island of Puerto Rico."
It won’t be forgotten. First impressions are lasting impressions.
This is why we can’t let this die.
His excuses and that of the left are that he didn’t know or that he can’t be held accountable for what someone else says from the pulpit. Well yes he can. When that church is teaching and preaching hatred and things that God would NEVER condone. This is the doctrine of this church, it is what they are all about and for Obama to say he didn’t know or that he wasn’t there when these things were preached is BS. If the doctrine of the church is Black Liberation theology than Obama full well know what it was about and if he didn’t believe it would not have stayed there 20 years, and would not raise his kids at the church. A true Christian would recognize this as being exactly the opposite of what the Bible teaches and would not have stayed. America needs to wake up, this is not about not wanting a black man in the White House, it is about not wanting a man of his questionable character as Commander In Chief.
His associations with evil people are becoming more and more apparent evceryday, the list keeps growing and we need to make sure the uninformed who are blindly following him know about this man before it is too late. There will be the ones that will vote for him no matter what, they are the ones that believe the way he and his wife do, and their minds won’t be changed, but there are a lot of Americans out there that are just following the MSM and believing it like it were gospel. We need to open their eyes and make them see the truth.
This is the most important election there has ever been. Our country is at stake.
This needs to be repeated over, and over, and over again.
So very true. Unfortunately, MSM and people in general have short memories. By supporting an islamic for POTUS, they have completely forgot and disregarded the horrific action on 911.
This is an interesting article from the Conservative Voice
entitled: Will Obamas Presidential Dream End Soon
by Michael Gaynor
Why isnt Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton surrendering?
Perhaps Team Clinton expects rookie United States Senator Barack Hussein Obama, Jr.s very problematic but generally unknown Kenyan connections and Michelle Black Community first and foremost Obamas politically dangerous bluntness to capture national attention and torpedo his presidential campaign before the Democrat National Convention in August. The American people have been prepared for that over the last few months. Public attention finally was focused on the politically naïve and inexperienced young Obamas bad judgment and association with Black Liberation Theology, Trinity United Church of Christ, Rev. Jeremiah A. God damn America Wright, Jr., Father Michael Pflleger, Minister Louis Farrakhan, William domestic terrorist Ayers, Tony slumlord Rezko and other unsavory persons. More and more people have realized that Obama is a typical political opportunist with a pleasant demeanor and a gift for soaring (but vague) oratory who happens to be half white and half black and willing to throw his white grandmother (and others) under the bus if politically necessary, NOT the post-racial savior that they had hoped and even believed he was.
A recent emai to me, set forth below, suggests that Hillary has good reason not to give up on the 2008 Democrat presidential nomination and Americans have good reason to investigate as soon as possible instead of blithely assuming that Obama is a safe choice.
After all, Obamas Rev. Jeremiah A. God damn America Wright, Jr, fiiasco showed that Obama is not the person so many people hoped and thought he was.
My gravely concerned emailer may not be right in every particular, but he focused on facts that the mainstream media generally disregarded and made a compelling case that a thorough investigation of Obamas Kenyan connections is critically important.
Here is a scrapbook of information relating to Obama and [Kenyan Prime Minister Raila] Odinga (and [Odinga political adviser and former Clinton political adviser Dick]Morris). It includes verifying links on its contents, both related to documents and in video form. It is not fleshed out into an article yet, but all the significant pieces to present its conclusion are here. There are, of course, many more links available but there is so much material it gets unwieldly. Not included here are the Black Panther connections, as the US counterpart to Odinga’s crew of thugs. You can look at their website for yourself and listen to its obscene hip hop encitements to violence against White America. This Black Panther website was actually linked within the Obama Presidential campaign website, along with their endorsement, until quite recently.after [Father Michael] Pfleger’s inflammatory video clip on TV (of which there are now 2 more even worse videoclips of him, which include America is a sin against God’, etc - if you want those links let me know)
Point being, since Pfleger, they’ve been busy scrubbing. Took Obama photos off Black Panther home page and removed BP material from Obama’s official site. There is a photocopy document showing that link on Obama’s campaign available if you want it.
I think you are more equipped than I am to author this major expose, as below. However, I consider this MOST URGENT to get out now, before threatened and bribed and bamboozled Super Delegates make this man the Horror Award Nominee in the history of our country. [Note to emailer: Super Delegates can cchange their minds, as Hillary recently commented.]
So, please look this over and let me know what you think. Thanks much. Contents are shocking but are verified. Can forward Odinga’s Official Pact -3 pgs - with Islam, if you want.
I include one telling attachment here: The Kenya Nation paper cartoon showing they know what Obama is running for, even if Americans don’t.
Emailer explained: Research of this candidates vague background began when I received this letter, via email:
Thanks for sending out an alert about Obamas (candidacy for US President). We are living and working in Kenya for almost twelve years now and know his family (tribe) well. They are the ones who were behind the recent [Kenyan] Presidential election chaos here. Thousands of people have been displaced by election violence (over 350,000) and I don’t know the last count of the dead. Obama under friends of Obama gave almost a million dollars to the opposition campaign who just happened to be his cousin, Raila Odinga, who is a socialist trained in East Germany. He has been trying to bring Kenya down for years and the last president threw him in prison for trying to subvert this country! December 27th elections brought cries from ODM (Odinga Camp) of rigged election. Obama and Raila speak daily. As we watch Obama rise in the US we are sure that whatever happens, he will use the same tactic, crying rigged election if he doesn’t win and possibly cause a race war in America.
What we would like you to know is what the American press has been keeping a dirty little secret. Obama IS a Muslim and he IS a racist and this is a fullfilllment of the 911 threat that was just the beginning. Jihad is the only true Muslim way. We have been working with them for 20 years this July! He is not an American as we know it. Please encourage your friends and associates not to be taken in by those that are promoting him. It is world wide jihad. All our friends in Europe are very disturbed by the Muslim infiltration into their countries. By the way. His true name is Barak Hussein Muhammed Obama. Won’t that sound sweet to our enemies as they swear him in on the Koran!
God Bless you. [Names deleted]
Pray for us here in Kenya. We are still fighting for our nation to withstand the same kind of assault that every nation, including America, is fighting. Takeover from the outside to fit the new world order. As believers, this means we will be the first targets. Here in Kenya, not one mosque was burned down, but hundreds of churches were burned down, some with people in them, burned alive. Jesus Christ is our peace but the new world order of Globalism has infiltrated the church and confused believers into thinking that they can compromise and survive. It won’t be so.
Alarmed as I was by this letter, I determined to research its dramatic claims. I have since verified all contents, with only exception (cant find source to confirm BHOs name includes Mohammed.
1. Obamas relationship to Odinga (Obamas father is brother of Odingas mother) (Reuters video link confirms this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CBJouPhws1M
2. US$1,000,000 (a million dollars) was given to Odinga by Friends of Senator Obama (documentation attached is official ODM Campaign Contributions List, stated in Kenya dollars
3. Odinga and Obama have maintained confidential personal contact and Obama played a role in negotiated compromise to seat Odinga in power rather than start more murdering riots. Sound familiar??? BBC video confirms: http://www.bbc.co.uk/mediaselector/check/player/nol/newsid_7170000/newsid_7177400? redirect=7177463.stm&news=1&nbwm=1&nbram=1&bbram=1&bbwm=1&asb=1 >
4. Obama is a Muslim because
Muslim tradition states any boy born to a Muslim father is always considered a Muslim. If he does not maintain this loyalty he is under jahid (condemnation to death). We all know that Obama maintains Muslim ties and endorsements. If these Muslim leaders could not confirm he maintains this identification point, they would not endorse him. They would, instead, condemn him. Tasteless video here included for clear statement on Muslim law of inheritance:
5. Not only is Obama definitely of a Muslim background, he is esteemed by Muslim extremists to be their awaited Messiah, prophesied to come and overturn the white race and Western civilization. Louis Farrakhan: Barack is the Messiah....he is the trumpet . . . he is the instrument to bring about universal Change . . . when the Messiah speaks the youth will hear and the Messiah is absolutely speaking (Quote near end of video after Farrakan makes his case to huge Islam audience that Obamas their Messiah. See noquarter archive for May 29 and this Video in which Farrakan directly calls Obama the awaited MESSIAH - to much applause! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xT9nYjqTL10
Confirmations: Photo of Obama in white Muslim headpiece, reserved only for a Holy Man.
Quote from his own book: If things got ugly, I would have to go Muslim.
5. Obama recently held a pre-arranged private meeting with Hezbollah extremist and US Hezbollah fundraiser, Qazwini, in Michigan. Qazwini said the two talked about Iraq and Iran. Barack was gifted, by Qazwini with a new book, The American Crescent. Blocked from net book access on this but apparently the cover is Islam symbol overshadowing the Statue of Liberty, will try for more.
Confirmation: Article by reporter (and Hezbolla expert) includes photo of the two together. This was why Obama was in MI. This is Hezbollah’s central US fundraising bank and MI has one of US highest Muslim populations. This is why, since that visit, Obama is now up in the MI polls, even though blocking their primary votes! See article for details. Local expert wrote it: link here w pix
http://www.debbieschlussel.com/archives/2008/05/the_company_he.html; Given what became public knowledge about Obama (only AFTER he became the frontrunner for the 2008 Democrat presidential nomination), can Americans afford NOT to investigate Obamas Kenyan connections and to assume that nothing is amiss?
To be continued in a subsequent article.
Given whats become public knowledge about Obama (only AFTER he became the frontrunner for the 2008 Democrat presidential nomination), can Americans afford NOT to investigate Obamas Kenyan connections and to assume that nothing is amiss?
I dont think so.
Would Michelle Obama be a suitable First Lady?
I dont think so.
I want a First Lady who doesnt discriminate on the basis of race or color instead of putting whites or blacks first and foremost.
Behold the Evil Whitey!
Obama's Preacher/Wife Problems Mean Nothing to Hussein ObamaMessiaHamas's Fanatical Cult and to Hussein ObamaMessiaHamas. The core/base of their pseudo religion is hating America and Whitey!
