Video: Fox unloads another batch o’ nuance from Jeremiah Wright

posted at 10:07 pm on March 14, 2008 by Allahpundit

A mini-highlight reel via H&C; my favorite part is his Truther version of Pearl Harbor. Some of it’s leftist boilerplate (fighting for peace is like raping for virginity, blabbity blah) but other parts, like the full-bore moral equivalence between the U.S. and Al Qaeda … actually, I guess that’s pretty much leftist boilerplate too.

This must be the sort of thing Obama had in mind when he described the sermons as “kind of rough.” Or rather, that he would have had in mind had he ever heard Wright say anything like this. Which, of course, he never, ever did.

Update: Did he at least read the church bulletin?

Well…..isn’t that special.

LOL. I get the reference.

Part of Obama’s appeal is his post-partisan, post-racial appeal.

He was the “blank slate” on which people projected their own hopes and dreams.

People who truly live Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream judge Obama by the content of his character, not the color of his skin.

Now that the content of his character is being revealed, a lot of people are realizing that he is not at all what they thought he was. He is intent on bringing the United States (“an Empire”) to its knees:

But my journey is part of a larger journey – one shared by all who’ve ever sought to apply the values of their faith to our society. It’s a journey that takes us back to our nation’s founding, when none other than a UCC church inspired the Boston Tea Party and helped bring an Empire to its knees.

most Americans love this country and find it to be good and decent.

Amen.

All the references above to the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. somehow caused a thought of President Lyndon Baines Johnson…maybe due to the Hillary incident earlier, I dunno.

Though I am lacking the ability to fully articulate the “why” of it, somehow this whole Rev. Wright situation is a prime example of the failure of Democratic Party policies – in particular, “The Great Society.”

Rev. Wright is merely the “fruit” reaped of the policy sown.

44 years ago, the Democratic Party planned a path to manipulate/control human behavior, with “the best intentions” of equality and bringing Americans together(wince).

The violent hatred, resentment and anti-Americanism which followed from it (see videos, et al) cannot, in my view, be detached from the Democratic Party.

To jettison the hatred, it is in the best interests of America to jettison the Democratic Party – or at least a major portion of its policies (hard to call it intellectual content).

…potential consequences of the above Democratic Party ideology are nicely articulated here:

1) They are still at it 44 years later
2) The violence has already started…Democrats attacking each other in Clinton-Obama fights
3) History repeats itself

Repeating with emphasis:

Since Obama and his pastor have both quoted Malcom X, I propose we start calling him Obama X.

Or maybe ObamaX for short.

Cheap Psychological Analysis:

The good Rev. Wright overcompensates because he looks more like a Bubba 6-pack (not abdominals) than a handsome strapping Clarence Thomas African-look.

When the good Rev. Wright goes into his apoplectic rants from the pulpit, it puts me in mind of someone, but I can’t, quite, put my finger on it.

Hmmm….

thinking. thinking. thinking.
