Amerika is Under the Influence of the Ku Klux Klan

Barack Obama's mentor, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, says so:

Exhibiting his usual two-faced duplicity, Barack "Watch me Now!" Obama - who heretofore has brushed off criticisms of Wrights preachings as the kind of things a nutty Uncle might say:

Obama likens Wright's rhetoric to that of an old uncle who sometimes makes disagreeable statements. Obama's evolution as a person and politician is so closely tied to Wright that any formal separation seems unlikely if not impossible.

Now we see Barack "Catch Me If You Can!" Obama furiously rowing his little boat of lies in an entirely different direction - now that his polling shows he's losing a bit of ground defending his nutty Uncle - the one who considers America "Under the influence of the Ku Klux Klan."

Let me say at the outset that I vehemently disagree and strongly condemn the statements that have been the subject of this controversy. I categorically denounce any statement that disparages our great country or serves to divide us from our allies. I also believe that words that degrade individuals have no place in our public dialogue, whether it's on the campaign stump or in the pulpit. In sum, I reject outright the statements by Rev. Wright that are at issue.

Let me say at the outset that I for one am sick and tired of Barack Obama, the shape-shifting liar, saying one thing one day only to change his mind and spin in an entirely different direction once it turns against him in the polls.

This snake oil salesman is foisting the biggest scam on America you can possible imagine -- but don't you dare suggest that Reverend Wright's diatribes are racist -- no, no -- Poor little Barack Obama will fall down and kick and scream at any suggestion that Reverend Wright's hatred of White America is racist behavior.

The noise is increasing now that the press has finally starting reporting on the issue that is. Six months ago Wright was just a nutty uncle...

Confused? Just drink the kool-aid... the keychain is in the mail!

Update: The firestorm continues:

The racially charged exchanges between supporters of both Democratic presidential candidates continued Friday after videotape of inflammatory sermons by Sen. Barack Obama's former pastor ignited fierce debate in news accounts and political blogs.

The videotapes capture the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who Obama has said brought him to Christianity, thunderously denouncing the United States shortly after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. It also shows Wright using a harsh racial epithet to argue that Obama's opponent, Sen. Hillary Clinton, could not understand the struggles of African Americans. [...]

"Barack knows what it means, living in a country and a culture that is controlled by rich white people," Wright says in one of the fiery sermons, delivered Christmas Day. "Hillary can never know that. Hillary ain't never been called a [N-word]!" [...]

"Mr. Obama obviously would not choose to belong to Mr. Wright's church and seek his advice unless he agreed with at least some of his views," Wall Street Journal columnist Ron Kessler, publisher of the conservative Web site NewsMax.com, wrote Friday.

Kathryn Jean Lopez, editor of the Web site of the conservative magazine National Review, wrote Friday that "now we know he's contributed money to, voluntarily listened to, and publicly defended a cleric who peddles racial warfare."

Update II: Reverend White is no longer on Obama's Campaign Committee.

Notice how Obama refused to act on this issue until it blew up in his face?

A Chicago minister who delivered a fiery sermon about Sen. Hillary Clinton having an advantage over Sen. Barack Obama in the presidential race because she is white is no longer a part of the Obama campaign.

The Rev. Jeremiah Wright is no longer serving on the African American Religious Leadership Committee, campaign sources told CNN.

You should keep pressing this point. My post on the other site tonight:

"Dems should hope and pray that Hillary gets the nod. Obama's performance tonight was more than worrisome.

This guy is not ready for Prime Time. His interview on FOX reeked of desperation. That deer in the headlights look, frankly, made Dan Quayle look presidential. Scary. He was getting softballs, not the sort of high inside killers that a Lloyd Benson type would pitch (and the GOP has plenty of those types lined up).

Democrats that actually CARE about this country's future need to carefully consider this candidate's record. Conservatives and Liberals can argue policy forever...as long as there is a REASONABLY responsible executive in office. Obama is not that person. As a conservative I can think of many Liberal alternatives who have a basic grounding in the reality of responsible executive governance: Leiberman, Biden,...even Dodd. And maybe Hillary, if my choices came down to that. But Obama? He hasn't a clue. He's dangerous. And he is not up to the task, but rather a creation of the popular media and a great orator.

cloisonne:

Watching Obama on 360 last night -(re-aired for about 4 hours) I heard him speak soothingly about reuniting America.
He is talking about a progressive move in America to address the issues of racism that still confront us on such a deep level, ok so far so good. Then I listen to the pundits that are speaking in his defense, all I hear is divisiveness and hatred. Where is the willingness to address the issues? I hear nothing but seething hostility and more blame about how how hateful our country is with its past soaked in slavery. The issues are there, we need to find a common ground. But Barack Obama for President is not a societal salve or even a medical excision of a deep wound.
Funny, I guess the rejection of my application to be a Boy Scout leader might have had something to do with my 20 years in the ManBoyLove organization.

Muslims Against Sharia call on Senators McCain and Obama to cut all ties with their racist, Islamophobic, and anti-Semitic supporters.
