"Did you know I am black?"

So Obama just finished his "historic" speech on racial issues in the current presidential race and throughout America. I watched the entire thing...despite my great dislike for the man; I thought I would give him the benefit of the doubt and open my mind to the possibility that perhaps he can be inspirational.

Instead, I find myself furious, agitated and annoyed. There was so much wrong with his speech it’s difficult to know where to begin. Sure, he denounced Rev. Wright, but then he explained for all us stupid white people, that the "rev" feels the way he does because he's held on to resentment for the "crimes" committed in the past against the black man and woman.

This man is NOT a uniter...he is going to do more to divide this nation than any president in the past 40 years.

It’s so hard to pick out where to start....there are so many different remarks that were just outrageous...and of course, we know the MSM will just give him a pass and praise this "lovely and moving" speech!

But...let's start with this one...

"The document they produced was eventually signed but ultimately unfinished. It was stained by this nation’s original sin of slavery, a question that divided the colonies and brought the convention to a stalemate until the founders chose to allow the slave trade to continue for at least twenty more years, and to leave any final resolution to future generations."
Yet...he fails to mention that:

  • slavery was not limited to our nation, in fact it was the NORM for the world at the time
  • similar discrimination, although slavery, continued for generations with other ethnic groups. The Irish were treated as "less than human" and were forced to become house maids, caretakers and nannies of the "rich white man." They were not allowed in to various places of business and restaurants and employment signs such as ""No Irish need apply" " were very common. Likewise, Italian immigrants when they came to the US and of course, American Indians and today we see it with the Hispanics...all who have come here have had to face similar discrimination and hideous struggles.
  • I have heard MANY black friends (those who preach personal responsibility and accountability, rather than looking to blame the past for their life situations) tell me, they are "grateful" that their ancestors were brought out of Africa...as conditions in Africa STILL haven't changed for the black man/woman living there today!
  • And typically, he forgot to mention ANY gratitude for the hundreds of thousands of DEAD WHITE men who fought against slavery on behalf of the black man during the US Civil War!
But let's continue...

"I am married to a black American who carries within her the blood of slaves and slaveowners – an inheritance we pass on to our two precious daughters."

Meaning Obama and his wife, who has already been caught speaking hate, will continue to teach their daughters the same..."our ancestors were once slaves, so you must carry on the HATE and blame of the white man forever!"

And then he gets to the Rev...

"But the truth is, that isn’t all that I know of the man. The man I met more than twenty years ago is a man who helped introduce me to my Christian faith, a man who spoke to me about our obligations to love one another; to care for the sick and lift up the poor. He is a man who served his country as a U.S. Marine; who has studied and lectured at some of the finest universities and seminaries in the country, and who for over thirty years led a church that serves the community by doing God’s work here on Earth – by housing the homeless, ministering to the needy, providing day care services and scholarships and prison ministries, and reaching out to those suffering from HIV/AIDS."

Sure...love one another if they are BLACK and you are too...but if you are a white man...the rev. calls you evil and worthless and not worthy, nor capable of love. So...what he means is "love your BLACK neighbor...care for your sick BLACK neighbor...lift up the poor BLACK man...minister to the needy BLACK...etc., etc.

How do I come to this conclusion you may ask? Well...just listen to some of the hate filled, angry tirades that the rev. has given...not once, but numerous times(see posts below) in his BLACK CHURCH!

"Those stories – of survival, and freedom, and hope – became our story, my story; the blood that had spilled was our blood, the tears our tears; until this black church, on this bright day, seemed once more a vessel carrying the story of a people into future generations and into a larger world."

Again, why does he have to go to a "black" church? Why can't he simply GO TO CHURCH? I know when I attend Church, I look around and see Blacks, Whites, Hispanics, Vietnamese, Pilipino and so many others...we are NOT limited to ONE group of people or ONE race...ALL are welcome and ALL attend!

In addition he later states that...

"And occasionally it finds voice in the church on Sunday morning, in the pulpit and in the pews. The fact that so many people are surprised to hear that anger in some of Reverend Wright’s sermons simply reminds us of the old truism that the most segregated hour in American life occurs on Sunday morning."

Now I don't know about you...but I have NEVER been at Mass on Sunday where the priest yelled out in anger against ANY race, individual or America! I have not EVER heard a Catholic priest incite violence or call the "white man" or any other member of ANY race EVIL! In fact, sometimes I wish the priests would get a little angry in their homilies...speak up about the immoral and evil atrocity of abortion...but instead they preach how we are to accept and offer forgiveness to those who have experienced the horrors of abortion. And as I pointed out above...I look around and see those of MANY colors attending Mass, listening to the WORD of God and holding it sacred...NOT applauding the word of some angry bigoted preacher!

Then he dares to go on to blame not only the "white man" for perpetuating racial discrimination but worse...

"Like the anger within the black community, these resentments aren’t always expressed in polite company. But they have helped shape the political landscape for at least a generation. Anger over welfare and affirmative action helped forge the Reagan Coalition. Politicians routinely exploited fears of crime for their own electoral ends. Talk show hosts and conservative commentators built entire careers unmasking bogus claims of racism while dismissing legitimate discussions of racial injustice and inequality as mere political correctness or reverse racism."

He doesn't have the faintest clue as to what he's talking about! Reagan was the least racist President EVER to take office...he had NO fear of skin color...only COMMUNIST ATHEISM! Which he boldly faced and defeated! If anyone knows anything about Reagan, the last thing one could ever call him is a racist...he was working with and seeing past skin color long before it became a "cause!"

As for Conservative commentators...I see...because they believe that affirmative action forces one to recognize skin color instead of qualifications, skills, education, knowledge and experience, they are somehow preaching "hate and intolerance" for others...sigh....

He continues...

"...a corporate culture rife with inside dealing, questionable accounting practices, and short-term greed; a Washington dominated by lobbyists and special interests;"

Hmm...does he include HIMSELF in this statement? As we are all still wondering about his full connections to Tony Rezko!!

Get's better though...

"I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother – a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me, a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world, but a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe."

Talk about throwing someone under the bus...this is the woman who raised him and here he basically calls her a racist and he "CRINGED" at the things she would say...hmm...so was it the great rev. who taught him to "see" the world differently than the RACIST grandmother who raised him?

When will this end? Why do they (blacks) get to hold "resentment" when civil rights have been afforded to ALL for over 4o years!??! When will they STOP living in the past and START looking towards the future? When will they STOP blaming and START accepting RESPONSIBILITY??!!

Of course, the whole speech wasn't just about race...he had to throw in digs at business as well...

'This time we want to talk about the fact that the real problem is not that someone who doesn’t look like you might take your job; it’s that the corporation you work for will ship it overseas for nothing more than a profit."

Umm...Obama...why do you think businesses GO INTO BUSINESS?? And what do you think happens when businesses CAN'T MAKE A PROFIT?

Here...let me tell you...businesses go into business for the sake OF PROFIT! In addition, when they are unable to make a PROFIT...they generally go OUT OF BUSINESS!!

Who ever heard of a POOR business employing ANYONE?? This was nothing but a SCARE TACTIC...typical liberal mantra..."you poor American's are too stupid...you NEED government to CARE for you by providing you with a job, an education, a home, healthcare BENEFITS, etc., etc., etc."

And of course, Obama closes with his sad story about the young "white" girl...who endured eating mustard and relish sandwiches because her mother had no healthcare...GIVE ME A BREAK!

Frankly, this entire speech did nothing more than scare me! I believe if this man is elected he will be the most dangerous we have ever had in the White House...and not because he's black...but because he's a coward who hides behind his color! He has yet to offer any substantial solutions to our nation’s problems...other than of course "more government involvement!"

I could have torn apart each section of his speech and had a response to or question to pose to Obama throughout, but it would have taken up several pages on this blog!!

He has no plans and still has NO understanding of WHY we went to war in Iraq or why we need to win there! He has less understanding of the danger Iran poses...oh wait, I forgot, his plan is to to sit and have tea with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. (**rolling eyes!)

He's also the man who stated that he would consider using "nukes" on Pakistan to find Osama Bin Laden.

He's wrong headed, misguided and inexperienced and his speech today just proved that to me, more than any other I have heard him give! This speech today was insulting and did nothing more than to once again, perpetuate RACIAL tension amongst all of America!

I hope and pray this is only the beginning of the fall of Barack Hussein Obama!
