Obama Blows His OBL Moment
IBD Editorials ^ | Friday, May 11, 2007 | INVESTOR'S BUSINESS DAILY

Posted on 10/25/2008 11:15:23 PM PDT by Brown Deer

The nation's first serious black candidate for president should be outraged that al-Qaida would try to exploit African-Americans for the terror cause. Oddly, he's not.

Osama bin Laden's deputy last week made a sinister pitch to blacks in the U.S., and Barack Obama shrugged.

Al-Qaida's Ayman al-Zawahri earlier this month courted blacks by frequently invoking Malcolm X, aka Al-Hajj Malik al-Shabazz, a past leader of the Nation of Islam.

Shamelessly, al-Zawahri encouraged blacks to join al-Qaida's holy war against the American "oppressor," and sacrifice their blood against "injustice" like the "struggler and martyr" Malcolm X.

He noted that the Muslim civil-rights leader condoned "violent" methods to help win equality for blacks, while implying that blacks today are still oppressed.

Obama could have stood up and blunted the effect of such a dastardly appeal by saying he's proof positive blacks aren't oppressed. But he didn't.

Obama also could have pointed out that hundreds of African-Americans were murdered by Muslim terrorists on 9/11, and that we are all in this battle against Islamic terrorism together. But he didn't. He stayed silent. Why?

One must assume that Obama agreed with Jeremiah Wright that America deserved 9/11. Jeremiah Wright agreed with Osama bin Laden.

Why does this appear to be true?

Obama stayed in that church for 7 years after Jeremiah Wright basically celebrated 9/11, a scant 5 days after more than 2,900 Americans were killed by islamic terrorists.

Onle when the tape went public on a wide scale did Obama freak. Note he didn’t freak when Wright said it. If my pastor had said that, I would have given him a piece of my mind afterwards and walked out, never to return.

But Obama stayed at Trinity for 7 more years.

It may be nothing more than he is an over ambitious piece of shit politician that merits neither respect or recognition. In any case he is dangerous.

Obama doesn’t tell people to stop treating him like a messiah, either.

You’d think he would say, “Thanks for all the adulation, but please stop. I’m a Christian and believe there was only one Messiah. “

I have been thinking alot about this and how this Rev. Wright thing doesn’t seem to matter to Americans.

Now, there must hundreds, if not thousands of churches to choose from in Chicago, and he chooses THIS one; a black liberation theology church. What it is about Obama that even brought him to this type of church and what caused him to stay? The answer is he AGREES with this and with Wright.

It is frightening that he could become president. Americans (beside us) aren’t going to know what hit them, they are blind and brainwashed.

It’s very frightening that somebody could become president from a church that was happy on 9/11.

As I watched both towers collapse, I thought 50,000 people had just died.

And Jeremiah Wright would have still celebrated.

That Americans would be stupid enough to vote for this man, when Jeremiah Wright was his personal “spiritual” mentor, shows just how far down we’ve gone.

The man who claims he’ll “defened Americans” (Obama) stayed under Wright for 7 more years after his traitorous sermon on 9/16/2001.

The Patriots of this country will all “take matters in our hands” on Election Day when we make sure he never darkens the door to the Oval Office.

I hope and trust that’s what you meant because anything else is against the law and is not representative of what we feel.

Oh and welcome to Free Republic.

Yep, America is so repressive that we’re close to giving the black man(well half black) reins to the most powerful nation the world has ever seen.

How dare we hold our faces in public/sar.

Obama didn't blow anything. Blowing means you did something you don't or didn't want to do. He wanted this to happen. Does anyone know how many Blacks convert to Islam while doing time in prison?? I think everyone would be very surprised. I know a prison guard who says it's a constant happening. Blacks are mad as hell at the justice system they think is mainly run by the good ol’ boy white club. Do a little investigation on your own on line. You will see what I mean.

the worst part, some peeps that think i have lost it are republicans! they are not going to vote for obama, but they will do little to spread the word, because i am “out there” and need to “settle down”. HELL i am settled, considering lol. used to think if the media did its job, we would not be this close to a obama president, but then they did a fair amount of coverage (cnn and a few) if you look at youtube when hillary was running against him. guess what? nothing. now they are on the obama band wagon. fools all of them! fear? love? or loathing? aint sure, but they are silent now.

Well, maybe. However it let itself open to too many ill intrepretations which FR doen’t need to be associated with. Hopefullly minutestolive will clarify what he mean.

People are too loose with language concerning presidents and “actions” and I am very uncomfortable with that.

dont know! i just keep jumping up and down screaming!
here is a thought i had, but dont know if it would work? SO we create a website that APPEARS in title anyway to be obama neutral or friendly. we could just walk and drop. OR when walking and knocking for mccain, if some one says they are for obama, smile nice and say great! here! stick them in windshields. heck, i dont know! but keep it vague so they want to look. then have links at the website. at least SOME would “get it”. if some body aint home, leave it in their door! if not, ill go back to jumping up and down and screaming lol.

“It may be nothing more than he is an over ambitious piece of shit politician that merits neither respect or recognition. In any case he is dangerous.”

Heck, the U. S. Presidency to Obama is just a stopover on his way to U.N. General Secretary of the New World Order.
