Skip to comments.The Media That Ignored Obama’s Beliefs Goes After Mitt’s Mormonism
Posted on 04/15/2012 7:42:04 AM PDT by Kaslin
When the former junior state senator from Chicago, one Barack Obama—a man no one knew diddly about—decided, “Hey, I’m gonna run for president!” people were eager to learn more about this promising upstart. Uncle Joe Biden was curious about Barack. Joe said at first blush that Obama seemed “clean” and “articulate,” which, I think, would be a hate crime if a conservative said that about him.
Anyhoo, Obama impressed many chiefly because he could enthusiastically read vague, cliché-riddled speeches off a teleprompter that included lots of big words like nobody’s business! This ability to read hazy political speeches in public without putting folks into a full-on level IV coma left the bedazzled masses wondering, “Who is this masked man? Who are his buddies?” and … “Are there more like him? He’s a doozy!”
Yep, people wanted to know from whence he came, what books he read and what groups supported him because he was three words: A-May-Zing! As the various news outlets started finding out that BHO’s buddies were sordid, anti-American fellows of the baser sort; his favorite book was dedicated to Lucifer; his endorsers included Communists and Hamas; and his folks weren’t exactly the Huxtables, the mainstream media decided, “Eh, let’s not talk about his past and his present friends and philosophy but rather how inspiring his fuzzy speeches are and how skinny he is.”
Indeed, everybody was like, “Well, those are some strange playmates, and those books are interesting—really not the ones we would read, but who are we to judge? And haven’t we all had, at one time or another, one or two friends in our past who dedicated riot-inducing books to Satan, set off a bomb in the Capitol Building and hated Israel with a passion? Would we like it if people painted us with our friends’ bizarre brush?”
Gadfly Sean Hannity wouldn’t leave well enough alone in ‘07 and decided to investigate not only Obama’s pals but Barack and Michelle’s pastor/mentor and religion that they had enjoyed for the last two decades. Boy howdy, did Hannity and others stumble onto some interesting revelations about Obama’s church. Stuff like ...
· Anti-Semitic conspiracy theories
· The advocacy of bizarre, pseudo-scientific racial ideas
· Opposition to interracial marriage
· Praising Communist dictatorships
· The denunciation of black “assimilation”
· The belief that the American government created AIDS to kill black people
· Preaching that America deserved 9/11 terrorists attacks
· The fact that Reverend Wright was, according to the Chicago Sun-Times, a “close confidant” of Obama
When common folks discovered Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s religious views were racist, Marxist and nuttier than a squirrel’s turd, some rightly wondered if BHO also believed this bogus smack, and if not, why he would sit for twenty years listening to those race-baiting beliefs if he fundamentally and radically disagreed. Why, they wondered, did he not vehemently condemn this cuckoo stuff?
The media, however, decided for us cattle that Reverend Wright’s racially-charged sermons, his black liberation theology and the fact that Obama sat for two decades under this slow drip of heresy wasn’t newsworthy and bypassed those tasty morsels. Instead, they crucified anyone who dared question Obama’s affiliation with his class warfare junkie Jeremiah (who was swiftly tossed under BHO’s campaign bus).
Fast-forward to 2012 and Mitt Romney and his religion.
The same media that ignored information about Obama’s racist religious roots steeped in Marxism is already queuing up with queries about Romney’s Mormonism as somehow being weird and a tad white. MSNBC led the charge this past week wondering aloud if and when Mitt would rebuke Mormonism’s disallowance of blacks into the Mormon priesthood until 1978. The duplicitous journalists who saw no story in the well-documented anti-honky rhetoric of Wright’s/Obama’s “religion” now want to paint Romney with the racist brush? How convenient.
As an evangelical I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t get Mormonism, but I do get Marxism, and we’re now seeing the political fruit coming from Obama’s ignored and divisive theological roots. Which leads me to this conclusion as an evangelical: I don’t care if Mitt is crazy rich and wears magic Mormon underroos. In 2012 I will take a quasi-conservative Mormon who has been ridiculously successful over an uncompromised Marxist any ol’ day.
And lastly, a word of advice for the MSM: I would leave Mitt’s Mormonism well enough alone unless, of course, you want Obama’s religious roots to be exposed, as well. I believe Americans will find in Mormonism more pro-traditional American sentiments than they will in Reverend Wright’s greatest sermon collections.
And they waited until after he secured the nomination, as predicted.
I have some questions and reservations about some Mormon beliefs and origins, but his religion is the least of the problems I have with Romney.
Uh oh... Now you've done it. The "Newt's gonna win!" crowd should be here shortly.
Be sure to stock up on exclamation points!!!
The Senate has been under Mormon control for a number of years now.
Who didn’t see that one coming?
You mean there’s.....there’s a double standard in the old media? Gosh......who knew?
Even Newt has said that Romney is going to get it.
Obama shows no signs of having been taught by Wright. In fact, little barry bastard’s beliefs are more a reflection of the ‘church of billy ayers and pastors Cloward and Piven’ than anything the racist hate-monger Wright taught. Milt, on the other hand, is definitley a product of his religion. In fact, Mitt Romney considers himself a high priest in the order of the Priesthood ONLY JESUS CHRIST holds. So this apologist, Giles, would be more credible had he warned that the beliefs and communist/anarchist methodology of Cloward and Piven and billy the bomber would be exposed broadly if the ‘media’ (which Giles has zero power over) exposes the religious beliefs and heresies in MormonISM.
I think there's a misunderstanding here. By saying Obama was "clean," what Biden meant was that his birth records, passport, student records, financial aid, itineraries, etc., have been scrubbed from this Earth. Sort of like an untraceable gun someone might drop at a crime scene. "Clean," but there for other purposes than would first appear to be the case. Yeah, he's clean all right.
I’m not surprised that you recognized your own lie being spittled. Your alinsky tactics are clear, and it’s a mystery to me how you can ridicule the man who founded FreeRepublic and remain ozone free. But such is the magnanimity of Jim Robinson. I’m not as mucha gentleman as he. I just come out and say you’re a lying stink bug trying to establish rominy inevitability beofre the liar has the nomination counted.
Could not the Republican Establishment see this coming?
No, you’re mistaken. Newt has stated that IF Romney wins. But I understand why you make such assertions on this set-up thread.
Romney being a Mormon is the least of my worries about him.
Anything is better than the Muslim we have now.
Beg pardon? His reaction to both the Gates and Martin affairs shows he has a chip on his shoulder. Futhermore, ,exactly how much does Wrights liberation theology differ from Ayers or Alinskys philosophy, except for the God talk? About as much as Mussolinis socialism differed from his fascism.
And here we have yet another not so hidden thread that was started to promote Milt Rominy by default. I suspect we have several disgruntled LDS inc folks who are licking their chops at the chance to defy your efforts to not use FR resources to promote the abortion loving lying Melchizedek high priest, Mitt Romney, famous Mormon.
LOve the pictures of George and Laura on your profile page. [Be patient, I’m tryign to find something noce to write, on a thread where the insidious milt romminy support is oozing forth.]

I feel the same way as you do about Romney’s Mormonism, but I would never vote for a Muslim or an atheist
