Obama Misused Church Resources for Campaign

February 29, 2008

Barack Obama made a speech with substantial campaign-related content at the United Church of Christ’s annual synod after the church told its members that no election-related activity would take place. Did Obama lie to his own church, which is now in trouble with the IRS as a result?

IRS Investigating Obama’s Church

By Jacqueline L. Salmon
The United Church of Christ, Sen. Barack Obama’s spiritual home, is in hot water with the Internal Revenue Service over a speech Obama gave to its national convention last June.

…According to a copy of an IRS letter that the church received Monday, the IRS is launching the inquiry “because reasonable belief exists that the United Church of Christ has engaged in political activities that could jeopardize its tax-exempt status.”

In addition, the IRS letter alleges that “40 Obama volunteers staffed campaign tables outside the center to promote his campaign.”

Viral E-Mail to Stop Obama

February 29, 2008

Note: A “viral E-mail” is not an E-mail that contains a virus. It is called “viral” because people circulate it to friends and associates. The following material is placed in the public domain, and readers are encouraged to copy and circulate it freely. Lengths are given for purposes of writing letters to the editor. Please feel free to paraphrase in your own words.

Less than 500 words, including subject line.

Subject: Barack Obama Enables Racism, Hatred and Contempt for Jews and Catholics

In fairness to Barack Obama, I must say up front that I have never heard or read of him personally speaking a word against Jews, Catholics, or white people in general. It is his failure to understand, or more likely failure to care, that his public appearances with and endorsements of professional bigots and hate organizations enables racism, anti-Semitism, and anti-Catholicism that makes him unfit for any office of public trust or responsibility.

Anti-Semites for Obama? Obama for Anti-Semites (and Racists) is Worse!

February 28, 2008

“Anti-Semites for Obama” by the Tennessee Republican Party barely recognizes the tip of the ugly iceberg. Obama’s association with and refusal to repudiate anti-Semites, racists, and Catholic-haters is indeed a problem, but his open promotion of anti-Semitic, anti-Catholic, and racist individuals and organizations is far worse. Let us first examine the taqqiya du jour of the National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC), an association of shills that use their nominally Jewish identity to persuade Jewish voters that anti-Semitic and other forms of ordure from Barack Obama’s numerous associates doesn’t stink.

“The Tennessee Republican Party has attempted to smear Barack Obama in a crude, cynical outburst of dirty politics,” said NJDC Executive Director Ira N. Forman. “To use anti-Semitism for political gamesmanship is an insult to Jews of all political persuasions. And frankly, such a blatant stunt isn’t going to fool anyone.”

The National “Jewish” Democratic Council, with its long and extensive record of whitewashing and sanitizing anti-Semitism and other forms of hate while promoting hatred of Christians for political gamesmanship, is an insult not only to Jews but to all decent people of all political persuasions. We can see no other motive behind Ira Forman’s press releases than a desire to whitewash and sanitize at all costs Barack Obama’s willful association with and promotion of professional hate mongers and their reprehensible organizations.

Obama Refuses to Reject Anti-Semite’s Endorsement Until Cornered like a Rat

February 27, 2008

The common rat is very adept at dodging and evading, and it took the combined efforts of MSNBC’s Tim Russert and Senator Hillary Clinton to corner a two-legged rodent named Barack Obama long enough to get him to use the word “reject” in conjunction with the endorsement of the prominent racist, anti-Semite, and Catholic-hater Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam.

Transcript of recent Democratic debate in Ohio. Note how Obama equivocates over Farrakhan’s endorsement until backed into a corner. (more…)

Obama Enables Anti-Semitism, Racism, Hatred of Israel

February 26, 2008

A growing number of bloggers such as Richard Cohen, Brigitte Gabriel, Sharon Hughes, Charles Krauthammer, Kenneth Blackwell, Naomi Ragen, Debbie Schlussel, Ed Lasky, and William Levinson are pointing out Barack Obama’s numerous connections to unsavory individuals and organizations that espouse and promote hatred of Jews, Catholics, white people, Israel, and/or the United States.

On February 8, Ira Forman of the National Jewish Democratic Council allowed himself to make the following noises about this rapidly widening campaign to expose Obama for his choice of friends i.e., Jew-haters, racists, Israel-bashers, anti-Catholic bigots, and America-haters.

    It is time all of us— organizations and individuals— take the responsibility for outing and yes, even shaming, the purveyors of sinat chinam in our community — to protect our values and to protect our community’s genuine political interests. —Ira N. Forman is executive director of the National Jewish Democratic Council.

Obama’s Church and Black Liberation Theology

February 26, 2008

Res ipsa loquitur, the thing speaks for itself. The following is not from any Republican or Clintonite Web site or blog. It is directly from the Trinity United Church of Christ, of which Barack Hussein Obama has been a member since 1988.

Talking Points

Dr. Wright’s talking points (3.1.7) for Trinity United Church of Christ its Web site and the Black Value System (in response to Erik Rush’s comments (2.28.07) on the Hannity and Colmes show):

• One of the biggest gaps in knowledge that causes the kind of ignorance that you hear spouted by this man [Erik Rush] and those like him, has to do with the fact that these persons are completely ignorant when it comes to the Black religious tradition. The vision statement of Trinity United Church of Christ is based upon the systematized liberation theology that started in 1969 with the publication of Dr. James Cone’s book, Black Power and Black Theology.

What is Black Liberation Theology, anyway? (more…)

Al Sharpton’s Followers: “Burn down the Jew store!”

February 24, 2008

On Imus: While I Was Out, the “Kramer” Story Repeated, by Debbie Schlussel

In 1995, Sharpton incited the shooting and arson murder of seven employees of Freddy’s Fashion Mart. When the Black landlord raised the rent on Freddy’s White (and Jewish) owner, he was forced to raise the rent on his Black subtenant. Sharpton organized a protest, at which he announced:

We will not stand by and allow them to move this brother so that some white interloper can expand his business.

Sharpton stood by and nodded in agreement as speakers and the crowd shouted: “Burn down the Jew store!” “We’re going to see that this cracker suffers.”

A protester shot four employees and set fire to Freddy’s. It burnt to the ground and seven employees–all of them minorities–died.
