I have never been an Obama supporter. But why is that relevant ? He's the one who is running on a campaign of unity and one can logically assume that his supporters are just as interested in unity as he is. Why else would they be supporting him if they didn't believe what he believed ? Or are his calls for unity nothing but empty rhetoric and his supporters as empty as he is? What's unifying about about the kind of rhetoric that his pastor preaches ? And why do you think that what his pastor preaches has no bearing on his own world view ? It's not like he has only attended this church once or twice. He's been a regular attendee for over 20 years. So obviously there was something about his pastor that spoke to his heart.Why else would he bother to attend for so many years ?

What about them ? Has John McCain been a regular attendee at either one of these churches for the past 20 years ? Why do you people insist on dodging this issue with obfuscations ?

Yet you Democrats have no problem picking on the Pope. You supported the Muslims who wanted him dead over that quote he made!

A PAID POLITICAL ANNOUNCEMENT BY SENat. BARACK OBAMA (D- ILL)
My fellow Identity-Americans.
As your future President I want to thank my supporters, for their... well, support.
Your mindless support of me, despite my complete lack of any legislative achievement, my pastor's relations with Louis Farrakhan and Libyan dictator Moamar Quadafi, or my blatantly leftist voting record while I present myself as some sort of bipartisan agent of change.
I also like how my supporters claim my youthful drug use and criminal behavior somehow qualifies me for the Presidency after 8 years of claiming Bush's youthful drinking disqualifies him. Your hypocrisy is a beacon of hope shining over a sea of political posing.
I would also like to thank the Kennedy's for coming out in support of me. There's a lot of glamour behind the Kennedy name, even though JFK started the Vietnam War, his brother Robert illegally wiretapped Martin Luther King, Jr. and Teddy killed a teenage girl. And I'm not going anywhere near the cousins, both literally and figuratively.
And I'd like to thank Oprah Winfrey for her support. Her love of meaningless
empty platitudes will be the force that propels me to the White House.
I promise to abandon our friends in the Middle East and establish new friends with Iran and Syria; people with which I can relate.
My pledge to stop all gun violence will be implemented immediately by confiscation of all your guns.
I plan to pay for all promises by redistribution of the wealth of evil corporations such as Exxon, if Chavez does not beat me to it. I learned this from my churches mission statement. I also will include a small increase in taxes on those wealthy white folk by increasing the rate on dividends and interest to 28% and eliminating that evil George Bush tax rate and get it back up to 38-45% where it should be so my supporters won’t have to worry about working or saving.
I will also promise to never let any judge get appointed that does support giving homosexuals, black folks, and welfare recipients preferred treatment.
Americans should vote for me, not because of my lack of experience or achievement, but because I make people feel good. Voting for me causes some
white folk to feel relieved of their imagined, racist guilt. I would invite all you bleeding liberal white folks to my church but we are committed to only black folks and to Africa. My Pastor also has this in my church mission statement.
I say things that sound meaningful, but don't really mean anything because
Americans are tired of things having meaning. If things have meaning, then
that means you have to think about them.
Americans are tired of thinking.
It's time to shut down the brain, and open up the heart.
So when you go to vote in the primaries, remember don't think, just do.
And do it for me.
Barrack Hussein Obama

And there you have it folks. People like Yakki aren't offended by the anti-American and anti-Israel words of a Reverend Jeremiah Wright.In fact they agree with him. But another pastor has some strong words to say about the Muslims who are committed to destroying both of these countries and he's a "racist pig." Well Yakki I guess we know which side you support in this war.
Rodrigo | 03.25.08 - 12:50 am | #
Please note: Not "anti-Jew",but "anti-Isreal". It's not the Jewish people these assholes care for,but the wingnut religio-fantasy they have in their heads.
good thing we know Obama will not be in control of the military.
If you think he will.. think again.
There is a whole layer of bureacracy, which of course is a communist orgasm, to prevent his meddling.

well yah Yakki does NOT support Israel thats for sure.
I'd bet more support for Palestinians.
Habib | 03.25.08 - 1:00 am | #
Well you should support the only democracy in the middle east if you say you support the US.
Course you said america which is very bush/clintonish.
Habib | 03.25.08 - 1:02 am | #
I know most realize Obama will not be in control of the military actions.
or is this passable for you.. "After what I inherited I have found that I have to stay in Iraq. We must stay the course"
That line from Obama will be ok with you
Habib | 03.25.08 - 1:04 am | #
cause your all fucking hypocrites you liberals.
Mark my words the day Obama says we are staying in Iraq you will find a reason to stay in Iraq.
Habib | 03.25.08 - 1:05 am | #
OMFG the inhabitants of Israel aka the Jews were almost wiped out many times..
Your a fucking anti semite.

Glad you agree with Hitler you god damn Nazi.
Habib | 03.25.08 - 1:07 am | #
BTW,this is the post that got the whole "YuR a NaZeeee!!" bullshit going:
Isreal isn't my country. America is. I give fuck all about Isreal. If you're more concerned with Isreal,adn do not already live there,then pack your shit and move there. By the same token,I give fuck all about Palestine. I call it like I see it though,and give no breaks to Isreal. Isreal has killed and killed time and again,ignored UN sanctions more than any other ME country. Frankly,the Isreali government is shit. The Isreali people know this and hope for change.
Yakki.PsD | Homepage | 03.25.08 - 1:05 am | #
So now,lol,I'm a "Nazi" because I don't support Isreal's aggression.
Let me say it again:
