Obama, ignorant then, or ignorant now?

Posted by revkharma on June 7, 2008

I can no more disown him than I can disown the black community.

Barack Obama, regarding Rev Wright, speaking in Philadelphia

April 29, Obama distances himself from Rev. Wright officially, after an appearance by Wright at a national Press Club appearance. Senator Obama said it was”show of disrespect to me”

Barack Obama said Saturday( 5/31/2008 ) he has resigned his 20-year membership in the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago “with some sadness” in the aftermath of inflammatory remarks by his longtime pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, and more recent fiery remarks at the church by a visiting priest.

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.

Barack Obama, in Philadelpha.

“Thank you to my grandmother, who helped raise me and is sitting in Hawaii somewhere right now because she can’t travel,” Obama said at the lectern in St. Paul, Minn. “She poured everything she had into me and … helped to make me the man I am today. Tonight is for her.”

Barrack Obama, 6/3/2008

So which is it? She’sa crypto racist who harbors hatred and/or fear for blacks, or a loving woman who taught him the values of inclusion he preaches now?

So, as long as the polls are not showing too much damage, Obama will say that he clings to you like a part of himself. He is fiercely loyal, until you become a threat to his ambitions, then he suddenly no longer knows you.

Look to his references to Rev. Wright, after his Press Club appearance. Obama says ” this is not the REv. Wright I’ve known for twenty years” After Tony Rezko is convicted he too has suddenly changed, and is ‘Not the man I’ve known for twenty years” Obama associates with these men for most of his adult life. Both were intimately involved with his early political career, and the families were together on many occasion.

If, in fact Sen. Obama actually did not know them, this is a huge red flag, isn’t it? He is closely associated with someone, and is totally unaware if his beliefs and actions. Yet, Sen Obama now wants us to trust him as commander in chief. This man who publicly says he is ignorant of the behavior of those to whom he is most closely connected, now expects us to vote him in to the most powerful political office in our nation?

Either we must suspend disbelief on one hand, that he could have been in the dark earlier, or we must suspend belief that he is in the dark now. One or the other is a dangerous situation, and should disqualify him. Yet, no in in the fawning press has dared to call him publicly on this shocking contradiction. The annointed Wonder Boy must not be challenged.

As always
