Looking Forward to a Barack Presidency [With Updates - ABC NEWS]

Barack has a simple choice. He wants to be a uniter? Well how will that happen with this kind of garbage? In Barack’s church every white person is responsible for slavery. Every one. Instead of the voice of Martin Luther King calling America to repent and not see color, the radical liberation theologists that populate the pulpit of the Jeremiah Wright hate-fest tell us differently. Let the words speak for themselves:

So Barack, a simple question. Do words matter or not?

UPDATE: It is important to remember that the priest in this video is one of Obama’s official spiritual advisors. More here if you have the time.)

2nd UPDATE: Here is the screenshot of Fr. Pfleger’s endorsement of Barackwhich Barack Obama CHOSE to place on his official campaign site. (And, below the fold, is one more memorable video of the “good” father.)

3rd UPDATE: Pfleger’s faith testimonial now scrubbed from the Obama campaign’s official website. Tacit admission of guilt, Barack?

4th UPDATE – ABC News recently published a report on Obama’s financial, spiritual and political relationship to Pfleger.

SusanUnPC’s additional notes: From Larry’s great piece on April 2, 2008 — “What Would Tip O’Neill Do About Barack’s Pastors? [Updated]” — another video of the “good” father in action:

In Larry’s story in which this video appeared, he told about discussing all of this with his own longtime former pastor. Larry was wondering why Barack Obama has hung out with Father Pfleger, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Otis Moss, et al. — this group of political extremists who preach hate and racism — for over TWENTY years. That pastor told him about a conversation he once had with the legendary Speaker of the House, Tip O’Neill.

The great Tip O’Neill said to Larry’s dear friend and pastor:

Politicians need to learn an important skill. If you are hearing things that go against your values you get up and walk out.

That’s right.

You GET UP.

You WALK OUT.

That SHOWS that you have VALUES.

But what did Barack Obama do instead?

Barack Obama SAT DOWN.

Barack Obama kept WALKIN’ BACK IN.

Barack Obama is INTIMATE with these racists and hate-mongerers who divide this nation and its people, one from another.

If somehow he became president, he would divide us even more.

:::::::::::::::

Barack Obama consorted with these extremists and racists for OVER TWENTY YEARS.

Barack Obama has NO VALUES.

None.

EXCEPT THAT HE SHARES THEIR HATRED and THEIR RACISM.

Barack Obama, in my opinion only (Susan), hates and is a racist as much as his spiritual mentors do. The only difference between him and his wife, Michelle, who reveals her hatred because she cannot contain it, is that he has been more skilled at concealment.

I think one of the reasons his gaffes are increasing exponentially — including honoring the “fallen heroes” IN the audience on Memorial Day — is that he is CRACKING under the pressure of trying to play the role of the uniter when, in fact, he is really a divider.

  • Beverly Leslie

    This video is disturbing. Why Obarfbag is even still in this race is astounding. I wouldn’t vote for this man if you paid me. It’s a national disgrace. Just think, this is the candidate the DNC is pushing on us. Disgusting!

    just cant believe it, that these obamaites are so blind.astounding

    how can any [sain] person vote for these people?so outragious :(

    Ladies and Gentlemen…its official….Michael Richards aka Kramer from my beloved t.v sitcom Seinfeld has just announced that he has joined Reverend Wright’s church. Apparently you can be a Bigot, Racist, Buffon and can still rise to be a pastor in that church. Seems it has quiet an affinity for Loud mouths with tongues run amok.

  • Mike S

    All of you folks who are so appalled at what the Priest said: Have you never disagreed with someone at your church? Just because this guy said it, doesn’t mean Obama agrees! This is pure and simple guilt by association. Did McCain agree with everything Hagee and Parsley said?
    Get a grip people. This election is about the economy, oil prices, falling real incomes, an unnecessary war in Iraq, National Debt going through the roof: REAL ISSUES. Cut the crap about what Pastor said what. We are electing a President, not a Pope.

      McCain disavowed Hagee.

      Obama’s church has chosen another black supremacist who uses hate speech against all whites. Obama has yet to even mention quitting this racist church. Apparently he’s in some agreement since he stays even in the midst of all this negative controversy.

      If you don’t want a massive walkout by disgruntled Dems who can’t or won’t support Obama (and he has no chance to win, whether or not we walk out), then tell them they must not make him the nominee. Back when Pelosi thought Obama would win the popular vote and HRC would steal it from him, she said she couldn’t imagine selecting a nominee that wouldn’t also get the popular vote of the majority. Now she’s changed her tune.

      So we must help the superdelegates understand, we will vote Republican or not at all and that will be sure these people will not be put in office again and Obama will lose, too. Ask yourself why is the party willing to lose a large percentage of it’s members to nominate a loser? Why follow losers?

      He called this Pfleger guy his spiritual mentor. Do you know what spiritual mentors do?

      In moments of doubts, deep challenges to one’s conscience, a spiritual mentor advises you on the best course of action, of course according to the scriptures, and eases your conscience. Do you want these thugs such as Rev. Wright, Father Pfleger, and Rev. Mess advising our president? What kind of guidance and advices are they going to provide? No, no, no, these people are bad people.

      Old timers, in my neck of the wood, used to say, “If you spend a night with chickens, you wake up clucking; and if you spend a night with pigs, you wake up stinking.”

      Obama spent 20 years with these folks; hence, he believes what these folks believes. Period.

      • ET

        uh no. I grew up a church going protestant and now im an athiest, my parents were republican, I am a democrat, that is the worst arguement i have ever heard.
        “Obama spent 20 years with these folks; hence, he believes what these folks believes. Period.” are you kidding me?

        • Ulahane

          Yes but you were raised in your church. Obama was not raised in TUCC, he joined it as an adult because its ideology was computable with his. He is still a member and used pictures from it in the Kentucky primary.

          Like your parents, Obama has brought his children to a church that he believes in, as your parents tried to bring you into their beliefs. Your argument works well for the Obama children but not for Obama himself. In your analogy, Barack and Michelle are clearly acting as your parents did.

      Hagee and Parsley aren’t McCain’s spiritual advisors. McCain doesn’t attend their churches, he is not a “member”. They are popular evangualists that endorsed McCain, just like they would any republican.
      Obama goes to Trinity, Rev. Wright shaped Obama’s spiritual life, Rev. Wright was a father figure to Obama, his “crazy Uncle”.
      This Catholic guy is a political ally plus a spiritual advisor.
      This church is CRAZY… nothing but hate for white people. Clearly this man was singing to the choir at this church… the church Obama and his family ARE members off…THIS HAPPENED AT OBAMA’S CHURCH!

    • http://deleted AnninCa

      I would never choose someone like this as a spiritual advisor.

      Would you?

    Did you see the other clip from this sermon? “American has been raping People of Color and America has to Pay” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EfWnY5PC0CQ

    What kind of Christianity is this?

    I am Irish Catholic and i go to church every week and one of the tenet of my faith is you have to believe in forgiveness and work hard to find forgiveness in your heart and extend it to others. This Christianity that i am listening to is an angry Christianity based on revenge not love.

    Moreover, my grand grandfather came to this country with nothing. He worked in the open mines of Western Virginia, Virginia and Kentucky. Back then, slaves didn’t work in coal mines because slaves were worth more than Irish. He worked hard, built for himself a tiny place in the sun and 2 generations later, his grandson graduated high school, went to college and became a lawyer. All his clients were dirt poor Irish. They had nothing to pay him with other than buckets of coal. So, where are these damn privileges that my grandfather and his father enjoyed that this damn ignorant priest talks about?

    Give me a goddamn break. If this elections is going to be about reparation, you will have a rebellion on your hands. Not only he is going to lose, the democratic party is going to be in deep deep troubles and broken in multiple pieces. Don’t fool yourself folks, this Pfledger guy is talking about reparation. And mark my words, many are going to come out of the woodwork and claim that we need to pay for our ancestors’ mistakes. This might work on those who have something on their conscience, but it ain’t gonna work on me ’cause my conscience is clean and i sleep like a baby.

    Holy. Crap.

    I’ve often noticed that Chicago is still terribly segregated when compared to other large US cities.

    I’m not saying this kind of thing is the whole reason, but it seems to me, to go a long way toward explaining a few things about why people collect themselves as we tend to do here.

    My western Chicago (within the city) neighborhood is mostly PR and Mexican, with a few gay and elderly of all ilks, and white working/middle class, mostly of the eastern European variety tossed in for good measure. Very few AA’s. (I realize that’s a weird way to point out demographics, but trying to encompass who’s here and what not.) Point is, Chicago is mainly divided in two ways:
    1.) Skin color. Black vs. everyone else, and:
    2.) Economics. The further west and south one goes, the poorer we get…until you hit the suburbs, then it all changes. (I’m not sure how. I don’t go to the suburbs.)

    I don’t know why. The gangs of the 70′s and 80′s had lots to do with boundaries being set by different demographic bases as basic survival. There’s probably some element of gang turf wars still affecting these divisions…I don’t know.

    Just rambling…and so blown away by this video, that I’m probably not making a whit of sense.
