Barack Obama, The View, ABC, April 11 2007, MSM, main stream media, Imus fired comment, hypocrisy

On March 27, 2008 I posted an article about Barack Obama’s response on April 11, 2007 to the Don Imus comment, “nappy headed hos.” Obama called for Imus to be fired and made the following comment:
“And the notion that somehow it’s cute or amusing, or a useful diversion, I think, is something that all of us have to recognize is just not the case. We all have First Amendment rights. And I am a constitutional lawyer and strongly believe in free speech, but as a culture, we really have to do some soul-searching to think about what kind of toxic information are we feeding our kids,”

This reaction by Obama came almost a year before he was forced by political circumstances to denounce the racist, hate filled comments by Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s long time minister and mentor. I was surprised to find out that The View on ABC on March 28, 2008 had Obama on the show and actually asked him about his comments regarding Don Imus in 2007 and his lack of response to Jeremiah Wright then. That is the good news. The bad news always seems to be the same. Obama did not answer the question. He went on a long soliloquy and spoke in generalties. Obama was never pressed to answer the question. I was pleased that the questions were posed, but it came across as a setup to make it appear he had addressed the issues. Here is a video of the segment where Obama was asked the questions:

One of the Jeremiah Wright quotes referred to on the show is the following:

“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,” he said in a 2003 sermon. “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.”

Obama responded:

“I never heard him say some of the things that have people upset,”

“I’m not vetting my pastor,”  “I didn’t have a research team during the course of 20 years to go pull every sermon he’s given and see if there’s something offensive that he’s said.”

April 11, 2007, Barack Obama, First Amendment rights, constitutional lawyer, toxic information, feeding our kids, useful diversion, Don Imus, Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan

The main stream media appears to be giving Barack Obama a free ride. After Obama has apparently lied about not knowing about the hate sermons of pastor Jeremiah Wright and after his 20 year association with pastor Wright in the same church attended by Louis Farrakhan, Barack Obama had the audacity to make the following statement about Don Imus on April 11, 2007:
“And the notion that somehow it’s cute or amusing, or a useful diversion, I think, is something that all of us have to recognize is just not the case. We all have First Amendment rights. And I am a constitutional lawyer and strongly believe in free speech, but as a culture, we really have to do some soul-searching to think about what kind of toxic information are we feeding our kids,”

Think of what his children and others were subjected to in his church and community. To read the rest of the hypocritical comments from Barack Obama, read my earlier post on the subject.

Barack Obama, human race, Americans, Nazi Germany, why I research, love the sinner, hate the sin

I knew little of Barack Obama a few months ago. As the 2008 primaries progressed and Obama increasingly became a presidential candidate choice, I began to hear more about his past and his past became a very important concern.

I am a member of the human race and an American citizen. When I research Obama’s past, I do it not as a so called white person (there are no white and black people), but as a concerned American citizen. Anyone running for president must be carefully scrutinized. All the history and facts regarding a presidential candidate need to be evaluated in terms of what is good for the country and all citizens.

Fellow citizens, let’s stick with the facts. When most people delve into the past of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and John McCain, they are doing so because they care. Challenging statements made by Obama or his past associations does not make one racist. No one should vote for someone because they are “black” or because they are “white”.

I have listened to statements made by pastor Jeremiah Wright and by pastor James Manning. Jeremiah Wright is wrong when he spews racist, anti semitic hate filled messages. James Manning is wrong when he uses derogatory terms for Obama. When criticizing a candidate, we should stick with the facts and not hate the person but just their sins. What any other pastor or person has said or done is irrelevant to what has been said by these two pastors. Each person is accountable for their own actions. We need more accountability in this country.

The 2008 presidential election is too important to trivialize. We should all try to pick the best person irrespective of race and gender. Character does matter. Whom one has associated with in the past matters. We are all products of our environments. All of the candidates are accountable for their own individual actions and associations.

The more I have examined Barack Obama the more concerned I am. Many red flags have been raised that have prompted me to do many hours of research. When I have posted, I have indicated facts as facts and allegations as allegations. When I first heard the Larry Sinclair allegations I was skeptical. I began researching and found out that Obama was not present on November 4, 1999 in the Illinois Senate. This was the first session after the summer break and Obama had his name on two bills mentioned. Larry Sinclair gave a range of November 3 – 8 for his alleged encounter with Obama. If Barack Obama has proof of his whereabouts during this time, I would love to see it and will post it. This still concerns me. There are many more facts and allegations about Obama that concern me. I hope that the allegations are wrong.

I soon will post the information I have collected about Barack Obama. I just wanted to say where I am coming from. I am a student of history and am fairly well read. Much of what I am witnessing about Barack Obama reminds me of the period between World War I and World War II in Germany. People were ready for change. Unlike here, conditions were really bad. Adolf Hitler began speaking about his vision for Germany. He also spewed racist, hate messages and blamed the jews for all of their ills. Obama speaks of change and many of those around him spew the racist, hate filled messages. This is too much deja vu for me.

I wrote this at 3:30 AM EST. I awoke and had to say this. God bless us all and this country.

Pastor James Manning, Obama, trashy pimp, liar, trashy white women, mack daddy, nappy headed people, YouTube

Below are some comments from Pastor James Manning about Barack Obama. After the comments, you can listen to the YouTube video of Pastor Manning calling Obama a trashy pimp and a liar:

“His African-in-heat father went a-whoring after a trashy white woman,”

“[Obama] was born trash.”

“He got started — you didn’t notice him ’til he brought out those big-chested white women with their tight T-shirts and their short pants,”

“That’s what a pimp does He’s a mack daddy.  He pimps white women and black women.  Obama is a long-legged mack daddy.”

“I told you about Bill Clinton, a man that has built your home the way this home is built,”

“Now you are trashing him and his wife, after he’s given you all that he’s given to you, from a man you have no idea what he’s going to do, and the reason why you’re doing it is not because of honor and integrity, but simply because he got a black face?  But I told you, he also got a white mama!  You hypocrites, you.”

“The future of you African and African-American people is in my mouth,”

 “It’s not in your hand; it’s in my mouth!  And I don’t have to compromise with not one of you nappy-head people.”

Here is the YouTube video of Pastor James Manning:

Robert Johnson, Obama comments, January 2008, something in the neighborhood, said it in his book, drug use, Clintons, black issues

I have revisited the comment made by BET founder and Hillary Clinton supporter, Robert Johnson. Johnson made the comment at a campaign rally in Columbia, South Carolina in January 2008. The apparent reference in the comment was drug use by Obama (mentioned in Obama’s book) and the inference that Obama may still be doing something in the neighborhood. Below are the quote by Robert Johnson, his apology and explanation and a rebuttal by Obama spokesman Bill Burton:
“I am frankly insulted,” Johnson declared, “that the Obama campaign would imply that we are so stupid that we would think Hillary and Bill Clinton, who have been deeply and emotionally involved in black issues since Barack Obama was doing something in the neighborhood -­ and I won’t say what he was doing, but he said it in the book -­ when they have been involved.”

Robert Johnson’s apology:
“My comments today were referring to Barack Obama’s time spent as a community organizer, and nothing else. Any other suggestion is simply irresponsible and incorrect,”

Obama spokesman Bill Burton:

“His tortured explanation doesn’t hold up against his original statement. And it’s troubling that neither the campaign nor Senator Clinton — who was there as the remark was made – is willing to condemn it as they did when another prominent supporter recently said a similar thing.”

I did not give Johnson’s comment much thought when I first heard it. Now, with all the other pieces of the puzzle forming a disturbing picture of the real Obama, Johnson’s comment has more significance for me. What has been going on in the neighborhood?

Barack Obama, First Amendment Rights, free speech, ABC News, April 11 2007, toxic information, feeding our kids, Jeremiah Wright

This quote by Barack Obama is worth highlighting. Obama made this statement in response to Don Imus making the remark, “nappy headed hos.” Obama’s response to Don Imus was reported by ABC News on April 11, 2007. Read Obama’s statement carefully. Compare what Don Imus said one time to the hate filled, anti semitic statements made by Jeremiah Wright and Louis Farrakhan over many years.
“And the notion that somehow it’s cute or amusing, or a useful diversion, I think, is something that all of us have to recognize is just not the case. We all have First Amendment rights. And I am a constitutional lawyer and strongly believe in free speech, but as a culture, we really have to do some soul-searching to think about what kind of toxic information are we feeding our kids,”
