Barack O'Bigot's Church of Afro-Nazism
Kathy Shaidle offers some insight into the bizarre and menacing race-based ideology Barack Obama has steeped himself in for the last 20 years. As made clear by his mentor Jeremiah Wright, Obama's church adheres to the Black Liberation Theology beliefs of James Cone:
Like the pro-communist liberation theology that swept Central America in the 1980s and was repeatedly condemned by Pope John Paul II, Black Liberation Theology combines warmed-over 1960s vintage Marxism with carefully distorted biblical passages. However, in contrast to traditional Marxism, it emphasizes race rather than class. The Christian notion of "salvation" in the afterlife is superseded by "liberation" on earth, courtesy of the establishment of a socialist utopia.
The leading theorist of Black Liberation Theology is James Cone. Overtly racist, Cone's writings posit a black Jesus who leads African-Americans as the "chosen people." In Cone's cosmology, whites are "the devil," and "all white men are responsible for white oppression." Cone makes this point without ambiguity: "This country was founded for whites and everything that has happened in it has emerged from the white perspective," Cone has written. "What we need is the destruction of whiteness, which is the source of human misery in the world."
If whiteness stands for all that is evil, blackness symbolizes all that is good. "Black theology," says Cone, "refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him. The task of black theology is to kill Gods who do not belong to the black community … Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal. Unless God is participating in this holy activity, we must reject his love." Small wonder that some critics have condemned black liberation theology as "racist idolatry" and "Afro-Nazism."
Furthermore, according to Cone, "black values" are superior to American values. Sure enough, the "About Us" statement on Trinity's web page includes the following Cone-inspired declaration: "We are an African people, and remain 'true to our native land,' the mother continent, the cradle of civilization."
It is troubling that Barack Obama's closest friends and allies subscribe to an explicitly racist doctrine. Even more worrying is that the main exponent of Black Liberation Theology sees Obama as a kindred spirit. In the wake of the controversy surrounding Obama's pastor and Church, Cone said: "I've read both of Barack Obama's books, and I heard the speech [on race]. I don't see anything in the books or in the speech that contradicts black liberation theology."
A Caucasian American voting for Obama would be the equivalent of a Jew voting for Hitler.
On a tip from Hoosier Army Mom.

Funny how these white-hating bigots hate America, but not enough to move back to the paradise of the African homeland.
When Jeremiah Wright retired, he didn't move to Zimbabwe or Kenya. He didn't even move to the south side of Chicago. He moved into a gated community of white lawyers and doctors. Isn't he worried those doctors might try to infect him with AIDS?

Im sure once the general election begins (after Shillary admits defeat) ads featuring this information about Obama and his secret love of Black Liberation Theology will be on the air.
Not a huge fan of McCain but the more I learn about Obama the more I fear for America is Obama makes it into the WHITEhouse (he will probably have it re-painted Black).

Soros has been shorting the US dollar for quite some time trying to drive it as low as he can. Of course he isnt entirely to blame but he certainly is part of it. Soros wants world socialism and the US is his #1 target.

OBAMA EXPLAINS GROWING SMALL TOWN AMERICA RESENTMENTS:
'And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations'..

Thank you for this post. I have paid a lot of attention to Obama, Rev. Wright, and the overall lack of concern by Whites. I'm glad to see at least a few other people care about this.
The post bothered me. I had never heard of James Cone before. It's bad enough that he has influenced Rev. Wright and Obama. I wonder if he is a popular author for all blacks. Really, this James Cone and Rev. Wright need to be on some kind of FBI watchlist.

Frankly I found the hysterical "Obama-is-a-secret-Muslim-fundamentalist" tirades of a few weeks back a lot more entertaining than the "Obama-is-the-Black-Hitler" abusurdities being deployed this week.
Oh well, it's your blog. Maybe next week You'll come up with something better.

What Obama knows about small town America could be comfortably placed on the head of a pin.
Of course, there's no antipathy whatsoever towards people who aren't like them in the Trinity United church, and no clinging to guns in crummy neighborhoods, and no anti immigration or trade sentiment among black people who've lost their jobs to those factors...

Alicia Keys: Gangsta rap was invented by the government to get black people to kill each other. Another proud citizen of Obamaland.

Obama inserts foot in mouth yet again, essentially saying that because steel mills in PA closed 25 years ago the people of small towns are using religion, guns xenophobic feelings as a way of expressing themselves. His implication is he can bring meaning to their pathetic lives so values involving religion, 2nd amendment right and legal immigration will no longer be needed. Daddy Obama will give their lives meaning. Or so says the Obama the closet Marxist. To him State is Father, State is Mother. We will all become one with the Borg, I mean, Osama collective.
""You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced them.
"It's not surprising then they get bitter. They cling to guns, or religion, or antipathy to people who aren't like them, or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."

It's a bit much to equate Barack Obama to Hitler. For one, Hitler had ideas, Barack Obama does not. Hitler was a leader, Obama, a follower. And most of all, Hitler was a genocidal maniac, whereas Barack Obama is a moron who is so stupid that he feels the need to sit in a black liberation church to authenticate his "blackness".
The two aren't comparable.

What if a Honky Politician said this...
"You go into these inner run down urban cities in America and, like a lot of ghettoes in the America, the afro-americans have not been working the jobs now for 25 years because welfare has replaced their work ethic.
"It's not surprising then they get bitter and lazy. They cling to their gangsta rap culture, or drugs and malt liquor, or unwarranted hatred towards whitey and people who don't conform and sympathasize with them, or anti-education sentiment or anti-family sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."
...Do ya think LibSnots would be offended?
Mirroring it over over is the Litmus test.
