I enjoyed watching Obama explain his differing views on Don Imus and Rev. Wright, pertaining to "hate speech".
Watching him "explain" how what Imus said was so much more "hateful" than what Wright said was classic squirming....

OK. Imus insulted a bunch of college girls by calling them a derogatory name. Obama said at the time he would fire Imus immediately for those comments.
Wright makes racist remarks against whites and women and makes anti-American charges that the govt invented AIDS to destroy the black race and Obama says Imus' comments were worse?
And finally, I wonder how Wright can claim that this country is utterly bad and evil, while he puts the finishing touches on his 1.5M mansion. I wonder what market exists for that mansion in Kenya or some other country for a black man?

I think it is wonderful the man is going to be living in that house. I think it is wonderful that people strive toward the ability to make the decision to buy or not buy a house with that amount of space.
I never have yammered on and on about the "'evil rich people'" and their "McMansions". I have never been envious of successful people. But America-hating liberals have; and so has Wright.

If I were in my Church on Sunday morning and my preacher said "Goddamn America", my response would not be "fair and balanced". I would have stood up and walked out, never to return. So, I guess I would not have heard his "entire sermon" in that case either, right?

Go ahead and believe that AIDS was a lab experiment gone bad if you so desire; just remember it will be sorta odd for someone that actually believes that to call someone else a "wingnut"......

No where can you find the words "go back to Africa" except in your post.
What are you, so sort of bigot?
Bob | 03.29.08 - 4:12 am | #
Yea. And just WHY CAN'T they cure the damn common cold?
Bob | 03.29.08 - 4:13 am | #
I am sorry. I didn't mean any of that. You just took me out of context. Just remember what Obama said about his grandmother, and I guess I am one as well.
I am just a "typical white person".
Bob | 03.29.08 - 4:18 am | #
Wright espouses hate against the "evil rich white man". Problem is, apparently he is a "rich black man", at least as far as real estate is concerned.
So, yea, I suppose he is railing against himself....
Bob | 03.29.08 - 4:20 am | #
No. It is not worth it. So many people, black and white, cannot and will not defend the utter hatred expressed by the Rev. Wright.
But you liberal syncophants are doing just that. And it is so utterly ridiculous you demean any positive message you may have concerning the liberal viewpoint.
In other words, you are a bunch of insignificant lemmings.

The Audacity of Rhetoric
By Thomas Sowell
Wednesday, March 26, 2008
(PS: Mr. Sowell is a .......shhhh.. a black man.....shhhhh)
"It is painful to watch defenders of Barack Obama tying themselves into knots trying to evade the obvious
Among the many desperate gambits by defenders of Senator Obama and Jeremiah Wright is to say that Wright's words have a "resonance" in the black community.
While many whites may be annoyed by Jeremiah Wright's words, a year from now most of them will probably have forgotten about him. But many blacks who absorb his toxic message can still be paying for it, big-time, for decades to come.
Why should young blacks be expected to work to meet educational standards, or even behavioral standards, if they believe the message that all their problems are caused by whites, that the deck is stacked against them? That is ultimately a message of hopelessness, however much audacity it may have."

Considering Obama had a more liberal voting record last year than even Ted Kennedy, I find it very hard to believe a person could vote for the most liberal member of Congress and still call themselves a "Republican".
Sorry. I don't buy it.
Bob | 03.29.08 - 4:30 am | #
Please point out anything I have said that could come even close to "hatred".
You liberals have demeaned the word "racist" to the point it has no meaning at all; you are doing the same thing with the word "hate" and "hateful". To a liberal, anyone who does not believe what you beleive is "hateful". You have destroyed another word's meaning.

YOu mindless robot, I DIDN'T say anything....the black author of that story did!
Bob | 03.29.08 - 4:33 am | #
Exactly! I've been saying the same thing for years.
Bob | 03.29.08 - 4:36 am | #
You don't have to be so thick headed.
If you think about it, there is very little difference between David Duke and the Rev Wright.
I, for one, disagree with both of them.
How about you?

I could send you hundreds of links as well. And I suppose you would be afraid of letting a little truth in, too.
So, where does that get either of us?
Bob | 03.29.08 - 4:43 am | #
Where did I use the word "fear", or even imply it?
You really are good at projecting, I have to say.
Bob | 03.29.08 - 4:43 am | #
Has Obama explained, in recent weeks, just exactly how fast he will "pull out the troops"?
And as far as that "100 year war" bit, we are, what, about 25 years away from being in Japan and Germany for 100 years?
Think about it.
Bob | 03.29.08 - 4:54 am | #
Smell the fear,lol.
