It has always been questionable how much Barack Obama was inspired by spending 20 years in Reverend Wright’s church. The Media has held its doubts but I know what I believe.
This is a clip from the Rush Limbaugh radio program:
OBAMA: I worked as a community organizer in Chicago. I was very active in low income neighborhoods, uh, working on issues of crime and education and employment, uh, and seeing that in some ways certain portions of the African-American community, uh, are doing as bad, if not worse, and recognizing that my fate remained tied up with their fates, that, uh, that my individual salvation, uh, is not going to come about without a collective salvation for the country. Um, Unfortunately, I think that recognition, uh, requires that we make sacrifices, and this country has not always been willing to make the sacrifices necessary to bring about a new day and the new age. [snip] I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.
The language of Black Liberation Theology is distinctly violent and racist whether it is spoken by the New Black Panthers, Rev. Wright, Wright’s inspiration James Cone, or yes, even Mr. Obama. Rev. Wright’s website was littered with references to the words of James Cone but has since been scrubbed clean. However, we have been able to find some video of James Cone. Judge for yourself whether his beliefs or language sound eerily similar to the words of President Obama.
Is it any surprise why the New Black Panthers got a pass from the Obama Administration? Walking in peace as Martin Luther King Jr. did is the path we must take. Holding to ones beliefs when times are good is easy. The struggle we have before us to restore our country, economy, and freedoms will be hard, but Americans have always been known by the freedoms we believe, the peace in our hearts, and our strong will toward liberty for all.
