Barack Obama - the Second Coming of Jeremiah Wright!

"We have turned a blind eye to the poverty, helplessness and despair that exists throughout the world, and in doing so, we have killed far more than the thousands who died in New York and the Pentagon on 9/11, and we never batted an eye. We have nurtured a climate of hunger and destitution all across the globe and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back into our own front yards! America's chickens are coming home to roost!"
Barack Obama - September 2001

Okay, okay, I admit, Barack Obama never uttered those words. It was Obama's pastor, Jeremiah Wright, who said something to that effect. But rather than blame the 9/11 attacks on America's indifference to global poverty, Rev. Wright said it was American agression - in places like Hiroshima and Nagasaki - that brought about the 9/11 attacks.

However, Barack Obama did say something eerily similar to the aforementioned quote, and one can only assume that Senator Obama gleaned his twisted ideology from listening to the sermons of Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

This is what Obama actually said in Sept. of 2001, shortly after the 9/11 attacks:
"Certain immediate lessons are clear, and we must act upon those lessons decisively...The essence of this tragedy, it seems to me, derives from a fundamental absence of empathy on the part of the attackers.. Such a failure of empathy is not... unique to a particular culture, religion or ethnicity. It may find expression in a particular brand of violence, it may be channeled by particular demagogues or fanatics.

Most often, though, it grows out a climate of poverty and ignorance, helplessness and despair... We will have to devote far more attention to the monumental task of raising the hopes and prospects of embittered children across the globe...

Obama’s response to the 9/11 attacks was published on September 19th in the Hyde Park Herald

Sadly, Barack Obama believes that the 9/11 attacks befell us because we failed to devote enough "attention to the monumental task of raising the hopes and prospects of" the world's "embittered" terrorists.

Translation: America's chickens came home to roost!

Barack Obama's message was in essence a more benign version of Rev. Wright's post 9/11 sermon, stripped from its original anti-American sentiment, and made to conform to American audiences. But make no mistake about it, it was vintage Rev. Wright, and may I add - vintage Barack Obama.

The media, in its blind fidelity to Barack Obama, chose to ignore this paragraph which was printed in the most recent edition of the New Yorker Magazine, and instead, vented its anger over the magazine's cover.

In truth, Barack Obama's words should come as no surprise to me. But nonetheless, every time I'm reminded of this man's convoluted ideologies, it sends a shudder down my spine and makes me wonder: 'Are the American people really so gullible as to elect this man - who is imbued with such twisted ideologies - to be the next President of the United States'?

Indeed, as I wrote in an earlier post, "For the first time in my adult life I am no longer proud to be an American". And yes, I concede, that sentence was merely a play on Michelle Obama's words, but as I wrote back then, "how can I possibly be proud of a country that is about to elect Barack Obama as its next Commander in Chief?"

Unfortunately, all I can do right now is pray and hope that Barack Obama does not become our next President. Meanwhile, I will continue to blog, simply to take my mind off the ominous cloud that hangs over our country.

Yes, indeed, I will continue to blog about Barack Obama's recent flip-flops, his waffling on global warming and his opposition to the Kyoto treaty, for it is much easier to jest about such relatively trivial matters than to discuss the convoluted mind of a man who blames the 9/11 attacks on America's indifference to Global privation.

Ah, yes, I really love talking about those flip-flops! It makes me feel so good!
