Posted on 11/03/2008 5:37:50 AM PST by HarvardHater
Now we have TWO prominent Obama supporters recently injecting race into the campaign. Each calls Obama biracial (not black or African-American).
1. A senior advisor to Obama (Harvard law prof. Charles Ogletree) said in an Oct. 25 speech at Harvard that white Americans are racist, and they can't disprove that by electing Obama, because he's biracial:
2. A Democratic congressman (Jerrold Nadler) recently said that Obama likely felt to have a political career he HAD to join Jeremiah Wright's radical black church, because he's biracial (i.e., to prove he was "black enough"), and once Obama realized "the guy's a lunatic," Obama didn't have the courage to leave:
And we have John McCain completely avoiding Wright, at the risk of losing the election as a result, so there can't be even a hint of him playing the race card. Apparently Obama and his allies are the only ones who can discuss the connection between the election and race, at least while the campaign is still going on.
On that point, please note that it's not just that Harvard Law had a whole program for its reunion weekend on race and the election (at which Ogletree made his remarks):
Right now, Harvard Law has a WHOLE COURSE (looks like a "gut" course) devoted to race and the 2008 election! It can't even wait until the election's over to give its students academic credit for discussing what no one else (at least not Republicans) is supposed to discuss (at least publicly).
For more information:
Please spread the word!
So Obama :
A)Doesn't buy Wright's Crap.
B)Doesn't buy Christianity.
Correct answer B.
If O loses it will be interesting to see how the MSM spins this. They will attempt to blame white Repulicans and it's hard to imagine how they will accomplish that.
