Maybe this is why Obama won’t wear a flag pin or show proper respect for our National Anthem. UN Secretary General might be a better job fit.
The following material hardly qualifies as hate speech (as did the material we have previously examined) but it represents the mind set of many of the people who are behind Obama. They apparently think Obama is their best bet for breaking down the American nation in favor of some “global community” and “world government.” Nelson’s Law says that if they are for Obama, then, we should naturally be against him.* Note that our first specimen is not some Obama groupie, but an actual precinct captain.

With more education and diverse experiences, we can eradicate racism and create world citizens. I am very proud of my heritage as an African-American, but I have also learned to view myself as a world citizen. There is only ONE HUMAN RACE. I am no longer limited by race, religion, nationality, or political ideology.
We remind the writer that the men who froze at Valley Forge, fought at New Orleans, had limbs blown off at Gettysburg and Antietam, suffered in the trenches, and hit the beaches at Okinawa and Normandy did not die for “the world.” They died for the United States and its almost unique liberties that have since been adopted by other countries. Perhaps Barack Obama is running for the wrong office, because it seems that Secretary General of the United Nations might be a better fit.
Note that this “world citizen” trash is entirely in keeping with Obama’s own proposal for diversion of a small percentage of the United States’ gross domestic product to relief of global poverty. Now convert that percentage into tax money to see the real maginitude of what Obama and his backer George Soros want to do to the American people. The above agenda is entirely consistent with things Obama has said, and also the agenda of his sugar daddy George Soros: a world without borders, in which Americans are subject to the will of the “global community.”
Mr. Brooks’ piece is not without merit, for he continues,
…it is easy to see that the two-way racism between Blacks and Whites in America is the result of ignorance. Furthermore, discord within the African-American community between light-skinned and dark-skinned people is just plain stupid. Ethnic group conflicts over politics like those in Kenya are misguided, tragic, and self-defeating. Ethnic group conflicts that lead to war, like those in Bosnia, the Sudan and Rwanda are even more irrational.
We agree completely. On the other hand, it is not racist to give one’s foremost loyalty to one’s own country, especially when that country is the United States. But wait–didn’t Michelle Obama say she felt no pride in the United States until her husband ran for President?
I am so proud to support [Obama], and so gratified to see that his behavior has validated that support, time and again. My heart is filled with hope for our future as a nation and as world citizens, if we elect this man.
Good, you go be a good world citizen. We will vote for John McCain, a Navy veteran who put his life on the line for the United States.
Maybe you may do even want think about politics may not even be citizens of the US or eligible to vote. You may still support a candidate for nomination in the party (you just cannot contribute money or vote). But we are all world citizens it is an important election for the whole world.
If some of these people had their way, foreigners like illegal immigrants would indeed be allowed to vote in our elections. Then again, they don’t think our country should have any borders.
Let’s face the truth. When FOXNews lambastes Rev. Wright about his comments, it is conveniently ignoring the fact that 99% of the Dr.’s statements are 100% true!
…Even though Bush’s surrogates could have ‘designed’ the grotesque attack on the world trade towers-somehow I’m not convinced that is the actuality– but I do agree that for all the interventions and injustices our foreign policy has supported worldwide, it is almost surprising the tragedy of 9/11 didn’t come sooner.
As with wayward children– America needs some ‘tough love’– we need to face our faults and grow up. We are world citizens and we need to behave honorably.
It speaks for itself.
We all need to catch up with the technology, which is bringing us all closer together physically whether we like it or not, and we need to balance that with the mind and spirit as well. We are physically one world, but people don’t want to acknowledge that. Nationalism is still the mind set of people’s conscience.
In other words, patriotism is a Bad Thing. We savvy.

One of the more memorable (to me, at least) lyrics from the Rush catalog seems particularly appropriate to the Obama message:
Better the pride that resides
In a citizen of the world,
Than the pride that divides
When a colorful flag is unfurled
Today, more than ever, we all need to recognize the magnitude of responsibility that global citizenship carries. A responsibility to peace, cooperation, preservation, healing, and hope for the future. What better way to underscore that importance, than by electing a true “citizen of the world” as our President?
A true “citizen of the world” might be suited for United Nations Secretary General, but not President of the United States.
First of all, I think if Americans want to lead the world, Americans must be also citizen of the world, not just citizen of America . . . . .
Do these people speak for Obama or not? Well, the following pretty much speaks for itself.
Obama bill: $845 billion more for global poverty
Democrat sponsors act OK’d by Senate panel that would cost 0.7% of gross national product
Sen. Barack Obama, perhaps giving America a preview of priorities he would pursue if elected president, is rejoicing over the Senate committee passage of a plan that could end up costing taxpayers billions of dollars in an attempt to reduce poverty in other nations.
The bill, called the Global Poverty Act, is the type of legislation, “We can – and must – make … a priority,” said Obama, a co-sponsor.
This is “world citizen” Obama’s priority when many Americans cannot afford health insurance and other basic necessities.
* Nelson’s Law. According to legend, Admiral Horatio Nelson laid a fireplace poker on the floor and said, “It makes no difference to me as to whether this poker points east/west or north/south. If I learned, however, that Napoleon Bonaparte wanted it to point in one direction, I should insist that it point in the other on general principles.”
