Is David Axelrod the Wizard of Oz operating the theatrics of Obama’s looney Trinity United church?
Axelrod, Obama’s media guru and ventriloquist (“Just words!”), is intimately linked to the controversial renegade Catholic priest and Obama “spiritual adviser” Father Michael Pfleger.
Not only has Pfleger been prominently listed on Obama’s official advisory committee, but he also has been recruited by Obama to campaign for him beginning in Iowa and around the country as an official campaign surrogate. Obama has had a 20 year relationship with him, as long as his relationship with Rev. Jeremiah Wright. And it’s no surprise that Pfleger is one of Wright’s closest allies and friends–and that both of them are the closest allies and friends of none other than Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. Pfleger and Wright are promoters and defenders of the hate-monger Obama consistently and respectfully calls “MInister Farrakhan.” Farrakhan is a big backer of Obama’s candidacy–and has been a supporter throughout his entire political career.
To this day, the press corps, in Chicago and nationally, has not done basic reporting on Obama’s ties to the Nation of Islam despite repeated reports that he has hired members of the hate group for his campaign and Senate Office and that Farrakhan has been one of his most important political props in South Chicago from the start of his political career.
Axelrod, Chicago string-puller and corporate lobbyist, is one of the connections among this motley crew. It turns out that he’s on the fundraising committee for Pfleger’s church. Axelrod obviously has no second thoughts about Pfleger’s flagrant appearances with Farrakhan, who he brings to the church to rail against the evil of white people. And Obama obviously has not even whispered to Axelrod that it might just be a bit inappropriate for his top handler to be so closely associated with anti-Semitic, racist and anti-American hate mongers.
Which, of course, brings us to Obama’s anti-Semitic, racist and anti-American church.
After Rev. Wright’s “God damn America!” festival of hate was exposed, guess who came to dinner? David Axelrod, no doubt with the approval and encouragement of Obama, stepped up to the plate to attempt to rescue the church from its PR disaster. Axelrod arranged the church’s hiring of one of his political allies in Chicago, a political and corporate public relations firm, Jasculca Terman, to guide the church’s image.
Did Axelrod get a commission? How much? How much is the church paying Axelrod’s pals? Nobody has come clean yet. And what does Obama know and when did he know it?
In effect, the Obama campaign, through Axelrod, has subcontracted image management of the Trinity church to a connected ally. Welcome to Chicago.
Then Father Pfleger mounted the pulpit last Sunday to stage his racist and misogynist minstrel show in white face.
It’s back to the drawing board for Axelrod, Obama & Co.
The Obama freakshow can’t be controlled.
