Obama’s Cat Is Out Of The Bag
And It Can’t Be Put Back In
By JR Dieckmann

By now, I’m sure you are familiar with the controversy over statements made by Barack Obama’s pastor at the Trinity United Church of Christ, so I’m not going to review it all here. In response to criticisms of Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s racist and anti-American views, Barack Obama has made the following statements:

"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 Reverend Wright that are at issue."

"I vehemently disagree and strongly condemn the statements that have been the subject of this controversy. In sum, I reject outright the statements by Rev. Wright that are at issue."

Obama claims that this is all news to him and that he never heard any inflammatory statements from Wright in his 20 year association with the church and his 17 years as an attending member of the church.

"While Rev. Wright's statements have pained and angered me, I believe that Americans will judge me not on the basis of what someone else said, but on the basis of who I am and what I believe in; on my values, judgment and experience to be President of the United States."

Bulls**t! How can Obama deny that he was oblivious to the views and beliefs of his own declared “spiritual advisor,” pastor, family friend, and campaign advisor? These are also the same views shared by his own wife, Michelle, as exposed by her recent statement “For the first time in my life, I am really proud of my country,” and her recent statement that “Americans are mean people.” Obama spent the 2007 Christmas holidays at home in Chicago. Didn’t the Obamas attend Christmas services when Wright delivered one of his most controversial sermons? Any contention by Obama that he did not know about, and does not share the views of this man are simply not credible.

The cat is out of the bag, Barack, and we are now seeing the real soul of Obama being revealed by the Rev. Jeremiah Wright who, by the way, would have likely ended up in the Obama cabinet at the White House were Obama to be elected.

If people were to look deeper at the flamboyant and charismatic speeches given by Obama, and think about what he has actually been saying, it is clear that his views are almost exactly the same as Wright’s. Obama merely expresses them in a more diplomatic and politically correct way. Just listen to most any of his speeches. He’s not talking about the American people as a whole, he talking about poor black people without actually saying it.

His campaign is not about “hope” for the American people, it’s about “hope” for black people who have been convinced by people like Jessie Jackson, Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama, the Clintons, and the entire Democrat Party that they are being oppressed and don’t have the same rights to the American dream as white people, and that they need “special rights” that are not afforded to whites, like Affirmative Action.

Obama’s slogan of “change” is not simply a call for a change in the White House, but for government mandated “change” from earned prosperity for those who work hard for it, to sharing and redistributing of the wealth to those who don’t.

Obama is always talking about the “poor and oppressed Americans,” how bad the country is, the evil rich people who run the country, and those evil lobbyists who represent special interest groups. He sees the country from an oppressed black perspective and too many whites fail to realize that what he is talking about is “change” for the poor black people, not all Americans. He is an advocate for “black power” in America at the expense of the white man.

Obama, and his pastor, still see the country as it was prior to the Civil Rights Act and because of blacks’ own failings to advance themselves and take advantage of the opportunities offered to them, they blame all their problems on the white man. It’s the white man’s fault that blacks are responsible for the majority of violent crime and the majority of the prison population. Whitey should share his income with blacks so that they don’t have to commit crimes to survive. That’s their view, and it’s Obama’s view as well. Instead of holding himself out as an example of how a black man can succeed in America, he advocates for those who choose not to put forth the effort to succeed.

If Obama were a Republican, he would be called “Uncle Tom, Oreo cookie, not black enough,” or “house slave” (as Harry Belafonte did) by the black Democrats, just as they do with Clarence Thomas, Condi Rice, Thomas Sowell, and other successful blacks, because of his career success and his personal wealth. But because he is a Democrat, his wealth is overlooked, and his followers see him as their savior, instead of their enemy. Because he is a socialist/Marxist, they see him as their “sugar daddy” who will provide for them without them really having to work for it.

Prominently displayed on the Trinity United Church Website is the follow statement:

"We are a congregation which is Unashamedly Black and Unapologetically Christian... Our roots in the Black religious experience and tradition are deep, lasting and permanent. We are an African people, and remain "true to our native land," the mother continent, the cradle of civilization. God has superintended our pilgrimage through the days of slavery, the days of segregation, and the long night of racism. It is God who gives us the strength and courage to continuously address injustice as a people, and as a congregation. We constantly affirm our trust in God through cultural expression of a Black worship service and ministries which address the Black Community."

This is what Barack Obama is all about and always has been. It’s easy to see just by listening to him speak. When he advocates for the American people, he always leaves out one critical word - “Black.” Many of his meaningless statements about our country seem to make sense if you think black. Can anyone really believe that Obama doesn’t know what his church is all about and thinks it’s only about the worship of Christ, as he claims?

The website goes on to say:

"The Pastor as well as the membership of Trinity United Church of Christ is committed to a 10-point Vision:

A congregation committed to ADORATION.
A congregation preaching SALVATION.
A congregation actively seeking RECONCILIATION.
A congregation with a non-negotiable COMMITMENT TO AFRICA.
A congregation committed to BIBLICAL EDUCATION.
A congregation committed to CULTURAL EDUCATION.
A congregation committed to the HISTORICAL EDUCATION OF AFRICAN PEOPLE IN DIASPORA.
A congregation committed to LIBERATION.
A congregation committed to RESTORATION.
A congregation working towards ECONOMIC PARITY."

You have probably, by now, seen the videos of the racist and anti-American preaching of Rev. Wright. If not, you can find them here on YouTube. The thing to take note of beyond the rantings of Rev. Wright, is the reaction to him by the congregation who are all on their feet cheering and praising him for his hate speeches. Wright is not stepping over the line in the eyes of his congregation. They love it, as he is speaking what they feel. These are Obama’s people and he is one of them who worships Rev. Wright, or did until this became public.

Obama says he didn’t know anything about this. Or to put it another way, he claims he didn’t attend the church on the days that these speeches were made. And if he had, he would have objected to the racist and anti-American rhetoric. If this sort of thing had happened on only a few isolated instances when Barack missed going to church, it would have been the talk of the congregation for weeks if not months and Obama certainly would have heard about it.

To pretend that he knew nothing about what has been going on in a church that he has been attending for the past 17 years is ludicrous. Especially when you consider his close relationship with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright. No, Obama knew very well what his pastor’s beliefs and views were, and he never voiced a single objection until it was exposed. Now he’s trying to save his campaign by distancing himself from Rev. Wright and by pretending that this all went on behind his back.

Rev. Wright must be highly offended by Obama’s denial and condemnation of his sermons after all these years of their friendship. Wouldn’t you love to be a fly on the wall the next time Barack has a conversation with Wright?

How can Obama redeem his false facade and salvage his campaign from this scandal? Quite simply, he can’t. The real soul of Obama is being revealed, and there is no way he can put it back in the bottle. The release of these videos has revealed the true beliefs of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, and in doing so, have revealed the true beliefs of Barack Obama.

This is why his campaign has been nothing but empty platitudes and generalities with empty promises of “hope” and “change” without real substance. If the German people had known what Hitler was really planning, would they have voted for him? History does repeat itself, and once again, we are seeing a population fooled by a charlatan with great speaking skills.

As a result of the release of these videos, Obama’s unfavorable ratings have suddenly risen to 49% in one day. It appears that some of his Democrat supporters are beginning to wise up and catch on. You know that the Clintons have to be celebrating. We also must wonder how big a role they played in getting this story, and the videos, out to the public with the help of ABC’s Brian Ross.

There are many in the black community who believe as Wright and Obama do, and they will continue to support the candidate and want all the “free stuff” Obama is promising to deliver to them. They also support Obama’s plan to redistribute $845 billion of America’s wealth to Africa through the U.N. with his Global Poverty Act. But mostly, they believe that it is the evil white man who has kept them in poverty, and now Obama is somehow going to make them all rich on Whitey’s dime.

No Barack, the jig is up, and you are not going to be elected to the presidency of the United States of America. But let’s all hope that the American people will learn a lesson from your candidacy and become the wiser for it.
