Posted on 10/04/2008 8:27:09 AM PDT by Jeff Head
Recent main stream media and other pollsters have (again) played the "race card" (funny that the Obama campaign, the MSM, and the DNC are the only ones who seem to do this) by insinuating that the reason a fairly good number of democrats, particularly white democrats, may not support Barack Hussein Obama, is because he is black.
Apart from the assertion itself being racist, I beg to differ.
As a result of my fairly popular AUDACITY OF TRUTH and my SARAH PALIN TRUMPS OBAMA_BIDEN sites, I have spoken to many democrats via email, on forums, and some even by phone. Most of them are rather moderate, but some of them fairly staunch. A surprising number are not supporting Obama.
Not because "he is black".
Here, let me list the reasons I have been given via email and on forums such as the PUMA sites and others.
My experiences may not be "scientific" from a polling or demographic standpoint... but I question some of the so-called scientific polls that (when you push into their supporting data) use a fairly large disproportionate number of democrats vs republicans...and then when Obama is winning by 2-5% the results are trumpeted as some kind of "break through" for him.
- THE WAY MANY OF THEM FEEL THAT OBAMA, THE MSM, THE DNC, AND OTHERS TREATED HILLARY. They feel that Obama, the MSM, the DNC, NOW, etc. have shown their true colors and that their commitment to women and breaking through the glass ceiling is a sham.
- OBAMA'S TIES TO WRIGHT, AYERS, & REZKO. Many of them know intrinsically that these people, with whom Obama has willfully built his political career, are not friends of this Republic...even the more socialist republic some of them want to see instituted.
- OBAMA'S STATEMENTS ABOUT HOW HE WOULD HANDLE FOREIGN AFFAIRS HAVE DEEPLY TROUBLED SOME OF THEM. Many of these people, despite their liberal leanings, like Liberman for example, want America protected from and want to defeat the abject enemies of this nation.
- JOHN MCCAIN IS VIEWED AS A MAVERICK BY THESE PEOPLE WHO WILL REACH ACROSS THE AISLE TO THEM. They feel that McCain is an acceptable alternative in their desire to defeat Obama and set up Hillary for 2012.
- SARAH PALIN ON THE TICKET. This goes back to the first reason. Even though her views are in direct opposition to their own, and even though they see the threat she poses to Hillary in 2012 if a McCain-Palin ticket is elected, there is something about her home-spun, and in the face of Obama ways that a lot of these people like, and they are committed to their ideal of breaking the so-called glass ceiling.
Anyhow, based on my own experiences with people from all over the nation via my sites, I believe that McCain-Palin are very well situated to win, and potentially win bigger than the MSM, the pundits, and the DNC imagine.
...or, more likely, they do see it in their internal data and they fear it.
Good work my FRiend.
Killing alive, struggling newborns is infanticide. As best I can recall—and I’m 63 so the presidents you listed are all people I remember from their terms in office—none of the men used prtoection for killing already born children as an empowerment factor for their political capital. Barack’ACORN’Obama has. Yeah, I’d say he is the most blatant dead-soul leftist in our nation’s history to run for president.
Obama's hordes, acorn and the brown shirts, are operating in the open this year.
There is some talk but little action to oppose them: Remember that they were specifically included in the first House bail out bill!
(I'm reminded of an old comedy line about 'a station wagon full of nuns..', you can't argue with them and expect to win.)
What I'd really like to see is some pubby court action demanding a hold on late registrations, 'early voting', provisional votes, and the like that would assure some level of confirmation before those votes could be counted - and disqualification of ALL of them where any misuse was discovered.
That and a requriement to show real need in order to vote absentee.
Someone burnt an Obama sign here in OKC and the demoncrats are screaming “racism”. They claim that the only sign among many for demoncrates in someone’s yard that is being stolen is obamas therefore it must be racism.
Racism? um, what color were the signs?
But the country does not deserve to be put in the hands of a glib and cocky know-it-all, who has accomplished absolutely nothing beyond the advancement of his own career with rhetoric, and who has for years allied himself with a succession of people who have openly expressed their hatred of America.
Put another way, the white guilt card isn’t as effective as the leftist power brokers have hoped that it would be. Ever notice the most common deflection used by people who’ve been charged with racism or sexism or being homophobic is that they have friends who are (fill in the blank)? Many Democrats (and Republicans) have worked to tear down the barriers for minorities & the thanks that they’ve been getting for it is to be called bigots if they don’t toe the party line.
...and there is some success in that in these times as they realize how badly they have been used.
But, when it comes to abortion, the 2nd amendment, class warfare economic and taxation tactics, etc., as soon as the Obamanation is defeated and tthose who continue holding those positions put forth a candidate that is so minded, it will be back to opposing them on principle.
Thank you my FRiend.
Alone it may not be enough...but it is something and it helps, and the more such helps we chain together the better chance we will have of turning back the Obamanation and all of its fraud, deceit, lies, anti-Americansim, and evil.
I believe there are enough like-minded Americans out there, or who would be like-minded if they could be exposed to the truth, to get the job done. We all have to help find and energize them.
He absolutely could not. But, then, neither could have Clinton.

you left out ‘the dead vote’, insulting zombies everywhere!
Please add me to yor ping list.
It's about 20 years of Jeremiah.
It's about His Muslim Faith.
It's about his brother, wondering why his brother Barak is not proud of his muslim faith.
It's about meeting in the White House with his Muslim brothers with no pre-conditions.
It's about his muslim brothers that attacked America on 911.
It's about his lack of experience in a position of responsibility.
It's about his racist views.
It's about his wife not being proud of the United States.
It's about his stated views concerning, "economic equality" (wealth distribution).
Do I need to go further? And there is much more.
ohhh, that kind of dead-soul...I stand corrected!
What does it mean if there’s a bullet hole in the sign....anti-Brady Bill?
It’s gonna be so cold this winter that the lawyers are gonna be putting their hands in their OWN pockets.
Not too long ago on an article about race being the reason ObamaRama was behind I used a take off of "It's the economy, stupid"...It's the MARXISM/SOCIALISM, stupid!
That’s why all the Clintonista lawyers became Attys General...
Cant forget the Tuskeegee Airmen who singlehandedly won the air war over Europe.
It’s true in a way. If we put McCain in the WH we give Sarah! a chance to become President herself one day. If he loses, she’ll be tied to that and it’s going to make her national ambitions more difficult.
Good'n...a keeper! now in the 'how cold is it' file.
No need. I document all of this on my AUDACITY OF TRUTH SITE. God’s speed and let’s all continue to get the word out to as many as each of us can...and ask all of them to do the same.
6.) Senate records disappeared
Your going to see alot of that soon.
McCain plans fiercer strategy against Obama
“We’re going to get a little tougher,” a senior Republican
operative said, indicating that a fresh batch of television
ads is coming. “We’ve got to question this guy’s
associations. Very soon....”
If this election is close, even a small percentage of Dims not wanting to vote for a black person could tip the scales.
We’ll see, won’t we?
How I wish this didn’t have to be said again!
The investigating attorney in the Keating Five scandal was Democrat Bob Bennett (brother of Repub “Gamblin’ Bill”). Bob looked down McC’s throat, looked up his birth certificate (as Benny Hill used to say), and recommended that all charges against him be dropped. The “Damn Dem” panel wouldn’t do it, of course, because it would have left them only four of their own to prosecute. The farce therefore ran its vile partisan course.
Thanks for the ping!
An example of what I mean. The stories will become wilder as time goes on. “Take a lie, make it big enough, repeat it often enough, and pepole will believe it.” Josef Goebbels(I’m not sure the quote is 100 % accurate.)
I'm right there with you.
Outstanding. That’s EXACTLY what they should be doing.
Obama’s unknown can be linked to what we do know of him...and that is very bad. We have to rpesume that what he is hiding is worse.
Amen to that.
I send your stuff out all the time and put 5 to 8 hours a day at the Republican headquarters doing what I can do.
McCain said for with him and I am believe me. I love my country.
I agree with you! I am seeing it on the Clintons4McCain emails I keep getting. They are furiuous at Obama and the DNC. You can tell what Hillary had in her arsenal that she didn’t use. Their emails have gotten more hard hitting this week.
Believe the Clinton campaign has given them a lot of info. They are also providing how the Obama campaign plans to commit voter fraud in various states.
Great post and Freepers need to start emailing the info everywhere. The MSM is ignoring but we need to start sending to their Ombudsman and editor to ask why they won’t investigate Obama like they have Gov Palin. Every Freeper needs to send an email to everyone on their list and ask them to send to their email list and it will start making the rounds. You know it works when you start getting it back.
"Muslim faith"? Black Liberation Theology is MARXIST, plain and simple. Rev Wright is a Marxist! So is Farrakhan.
Sorry for those of you who've seen this before, but since some of us apparently STILL don't get it, it obviously needs to posted again.

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 is the son of Rafael Diaz-Balart y Guitierrez (a former Cuban politician). He has three bothers, Rafael Diaz-Balart (a banker), Mario Diaz-Balart (a US Congressman) and Lincoln Diaz-Balart (also a US Congressman). His aunt, Mirta Diaz-Balart, was Fidel Castro's first wife."
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."

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."

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."

Obama's Church: Gospel of Hate
Kathy Shaidle, FrontPageMag.com
Monday, April 07, 2008
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.
From "45 Communist Goals":
#27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion.
Catholics for Marx
By Fr. Robert Sirico
FrontPageMagazine.com | Thursday, June 03, 2004
In the days when the Superpowers were locked in a Cold War, Latin America seethed with revolution, and millions lived behind an iron curtain, a group of theologians concocted a novel idea within the history of Christianity. They proposed to combine the teachings of Jesus with the teachings of Marx as a way of justifying violent revolution to overthrow the economics of capitalism.
The Gospels were re-rendered not as doctrine impacting on the human soul but rather as windows into the historical dialectic of class struggle. These "liberation theologians" saw every biblical criticism of the rich as a mandate to expropriate the expropriating owners of capital, and every expression of compassion for the poor as a call for an uprising by the proletarian class of peasants and workers.
From the New York Times, April 28, 2008
Reverend Wright at the National Press Club
"In the late 1960s, when Dr. James Cone's powerful books burst onto the scene, the term 'black liberation theology' began to be used. I do not in any way disagree with Dr. Cone, nor do I in any way diminish the inimitable and incomparable contributions that he has made and that he continues to make to the field of theology. Jim, incidentally, is a personal friend of mine."
From Jeff Head's website...
One notable quote from [James] Cone describing his Black Liberation Theology is as follows:
"Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him. The task of black theology is to kill Gods who do not belong to the black community ... Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal. Unless God is participating in this holy activity, we must reject his love." - "Divine Racism: The Unacknowledged Threshold Issue for Black Theology", in African-American Religious Thought: An Anthology, by William R Jones, ed Cornel West and Eddie Glaube (Westminster John Knox Press).

HANNITY: But Reverend Jeremiah Wright is not backing down and has not for years and in his strong stance on the teaching of black liberation theology is nothing new. He had the same things to say last spring when he appeared on "Hannity & Colmes:"
WRIGHT: If you're not going to talk about theology in context, if you're not going to talk about liberation theology that came out of the '60s, systematized black liberation theology that started with Jim Cone in 1968 and the writings of Cone and the writings of Dwight Hopkins and the writings of womynist theologians and Asian theologians and Hispanic theologians, then you can't talk about the black value system.
HANNITY: But I'm a reverend
WRIGHT: Do you know liberation theology, sir?

Hammer...nail...head. Square on the head. Spot on. Thanks for including that very thorough list on this thread.
You’re very welcome, FRiend. And THANK YOU for all the great work you’ve done.
