Thomas Sowell, race and politics, Barack Obama, racism, Jeremiah Wright

Thomas Sowell has written a great article about Barack Obama and his racist connections with Jeremiah Wright. Here are some excerpts:

“Any American, regardless of party or race, has to find it heartening that the country has reached the point where a black candidate for President of the United States sweeps so many primaries in states where the overwhelming majority of the population is white.”

“That’s the good news. The bad news is that Barack Obama has been leading as much of a double life as Eliot Spitzer.”

 “While talking about bringing us together and deploring “divisive” actions, Senator Obama has for 20 years been a member of a church whose minister, Jeremiah Wright, has said that “God Bless America” should be replaced by “God damn America” — among many other wild and even obscene denunciations of American society, including blanket racist attacks on whites.”

“We don’t need a President of the United States who got to the White House by talking one way, voting a very different way in the Senate, and who for 20 years followed a man whose words and deeds contradict Obama’s carefully crafted election year image.”

Hate America speech, Barack Obama attended, God damn America, Obama listened to sermon, Obama a liar?

Barack Obama has denied listening to the hate America Sermon by pastor Jeremiah Wright. In this racist inflammatory sermon pastor Wright says “God damn America.”

According to Newsmax.com, “Our writer, Jim Davis, says he attended several services at Senator Obama’s church during the month of July, including July 22. The church holds services three times every Sunday at 7:30 and 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. Central time. While both the early morning and evening service allowed Sen. Obama to attend the service and still give a speech in Miami, Mr. Davis stands by his story that during one of the services he attended during the month of July, Senator Obama was present and sat through the sermon given by Rev. Wright as described in the story.”

“Senator Obama has sought to separate himself from his pastor’s incendiary remarks, issuing a statement Friday rejecting them as “inflammatory and appalling” but failing to renounce Wright himself for his venomous and paranoid denunciations of America.

In his press release, Obama claimed, “The statements that Rev. Wright made that are the cause of this controversy were not statements I personally heard him preach while I sat in the pews of Trinity [United Church of Christ] or heard him utter in private conversation.”

Appearing on cable news shows this past weekend, Obama claimed when he saw recent videos that have Wright making such comments as “God damn America,” he was “shocked.” Obama implied that the reverend had not used such derogatory language in any of the church services Obama attended over the past two decades.

If Obama’s claims are true that he was completely unaware that Wright’s trademark preaching style at the Trinity United Church of Christ has targeted “white” America and Israel, he would have been one of the few people in Chicago to be so uninformed. Wright’s reputation for spewing hate is well known.”

Obama slipping in polls? Obama Racist? Racist pastor Jeremiah Wright hurting Obama, Rasmussen poll

Barack Obama’s long time association with pastor Jeremiah Wright is hurting his bid for the democratic nomination. Obama has recently denounced Jeremiah Wright and his racist, anti semitic and anti American rhetoric. The damage has been done. Obama cannot erase years of listening to and remaining silent about pastor Wright’s opinions. Barack Obama is slipping in popularity and in the polls.

My unscientific poll shows more people believe Obama is racist. Here are the results today:

Is Barack Obama a Racist?

Yes            64 %
No             27 %
Not sure     9 %

Below are the latest results from the Rasmussen polling organization:

“The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows John McCain with a six-percentage point lead over both potential Democratic opponents. McCain currently leads Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton by an identical 48% to 42% margin. McCain has a double-digit lead over Clinton among unaffiliated voters and is essentially even with Obama among those same voters. However, McCain makes greater inroads among Democrats with Obama as the nominee.”

“The dialogue about Wright’s controversial comments appears to have had at least a short-term impact on public perceptions of Barack Obama. The Illinois Senator is viewed favorably today by just 47% of voters nationwide. That’s down five points since last Thursday (see recent daily results). The number with an unfavorable view of Obama has risen from 44% on Thursday to 50% today. Among White voters, Obama is now viewed favorably by 43% and unfavorably by 54%.”
