Thank you Obama’s Reverend Wright

What a fantastic development, to have Barack Obama unmasked still early into the election, bursting the giddy bubble which his fans regard as the change Obama offers from Centrism/Neoliberalism/Neoconartistry. Obama is not only denouncing Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s statements. Obama is now telling Americans over-regulation is a problem, Obama is endorsing charter schools, Obama is conceding that some Republican policies are preferable to those of Democrats…

Can you dispute any of the pronouncements of Obama’s Reverend? Even rephrased by critics, I found these criticisms are unassailable, if uncomfortably spirited. Here they are presented in an accusatory article on Barack Obama: WHAT DID HE KNOW AND WHEN?

Racism is alive and well. Racism is the American way.

Racism is how this country was founded, and how this country is still run.

No black man can ever be President.

No black woman will ever be considered for anything outside of what she can give with her body.

America is still the number one killer in the world.

We are deeply involved in the importing of drugs, the exporting of guns and the training professional killers.

We believe in white supremacy and black inferiority. And believe it more than we believe in God.

We supported Zionism shamelessly while ignoring the Palestinians, and branding anybody who spoke out against it as being anti-Semitic.

We do not care if poor black and brown children cannot read and kill each other senselessly

We started the AIDS virus, and now that it is out of control we still put more money in the military than in medicine. More money in hate than humanitarian concerns.

We are selfish, self-centered ego egotists, who are arrogant and ignorant.

The second to last statement may be extreme, but what’s to argue? Whether CIA labs produced an AIDs virus to arrest the exploding populations of Africa, or whether our exploitive capitalism / polluting industrialism / callous militarism / usurious enslavement systems precipitated the genocide over lands from which the developed nations need resources but not people, are either less murderous?

One could split the same hairs about 9/11. Whether our government colluded with the hijackers to facilitate/exacerbate a false flag attack against the first world, or whether our world trade banking policies finally so enraged its victims to goad their desperate symbolic strike on our WTC, are we any the less responsible?

Reverend Jeremiah Wright is absolutely right about all these points. In the tradition of MLK not by coincidence. Barack Obama is being compelled by the corporate mainstream to distance himself from what the American public knows are truths, and all the better. Those of us who know we need a change can see that Obama isn’t going to be it.

“The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing ‘God Bless America.’ No, no, no, God damn America, that’s in the Bible for killing innocent people. “God damn America for treating our citizens as less than human. God damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme.

“We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye.

We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back to our own front yards. America’s chickens are coming home to roost.”

  1. Yo Eric,
    Surely even you do not believe all this BS by the so called rev Wrong …right …whatever. Sure a fine example of the left side of liberals, huh?

  2. Yo Tony,
    Rev Wrong is just another liberal racist, colored black in place of white, red or brown. Wrong & evil by any color is still that, Tony, wrong, even if it was “mild”. What we all you – I – Eric – Marie, Neocon or liberal or comminist needs to do it work for the better of all of human kind.

    Hope to see you all at the Memorial Day activities too.

    your favoright neocon, retired army combat officer & Texican

  3. Yeah, you the great expert on racism, George! I remember our little chat together once about your thoughts on Kurdish Rights as you see them inside your beloved Turkey! You are basically a fascist.

  4. Yo Tony,
    Fascist? Well at least it is a step up from thug. Fascist commie is next call, I guess. Kurdish rights within Turkey hmmm about like indian rights in the USA. One needs to grow up & join the nation they are in, speak english & become productive citizens. All this Irish-American, Affo-American, Mex-American is silly. WE are ALL or should be Americans. Or if you can’t accept that then go back to the whatever dash you are & live there. My view only. Hopefully one day, Tony we will all be just humans of earth & work/live/progress together for the human race.. Expert on racism? Everyone is an expert on this form of evil, Tony. Even you too.

    Tony, do try to open your mind and read what I type, think about it then lets discuss with civil respect for each others view. Can y ou do that? I am here to learn not get name bashed, silly as they are in the first place. Hope you have something reasonable to say besides childish name calling. or it that really all you have? HHHHMMMMM.
    George

  5. Tony- stop feeding the troll. Major’s vacuous “thinking” is taking oxygen from all of us.

  6. RJJr, I think we are just about ready to turn the cop spam filter on here and remove this nuisance offline once and for all at NMT. George is not on this blog, or at Justice and Peace events either, to discuss issues but rather to monitor our activities and personalities, bait and split people from one another, and to disrupt and intimidate.

    He has denied that he is a cop, yet functions as if he was one. He might not be a cop like he says he isn’t (there are plenty of amateur cops out there), but cops have been known to lie quite often. As it is, it is not so relevant at all, since the reason he will be thrown offline has to do with the way he spams the site and bores us all to death.

    If he were to actually have the strength to debate any issues at all, he would be welcomed here, even if he was coming from a Far Right position in his beliefs. We would be courteous to him even, but unfortunately discussion is not his intent at all, and it is quite simply the time for him to go.

    Good bye, George. It is always unpleasant dealing with you, because quite simply, you are one of vilest human beings I have come across in my lifetime. Good riddance to you, Major Pain. What a lousy job you have. You have helped us see how the American military destroys character.

  7. Yo Tony,
    Guess you are really fearful of debate in a decent respectful manner. I expected you would get me censored & taken off. Nice to know I was not wrong
    George
