Barack Hussein Obama, otherwise ordained as the next JFK, felt compelled to verbalize a “message of unity.” BHO/JFK as always, took great pains to say as little of actual substance as possible. However, if you read through the entirety of this torturous tract, minute morsels of wheat can be cut from his childish chaff. We will approach this Sisyphean challenge chronologically..
“..It was stained by this nations original sin of slavery..” The great liberal unifier wastes no time in putting a bit more mortar between the bricks of the wall that he claims that he wants to break down. The left is so fascinated by the “recovering alcoholic” school of pop psychology that they intend to Velcro it to anything and everything that they possibly can. In order to “move beyond the racism of the past”, we must be reminded of it with each passing moment, ad infinitum. The liberals would like the rest of us to begin each conversation from this point forward with, “Hi, my name is Bob and I’m a recovering slave owner..” Those wielding the psychological club of “slavery is responsible for all of the nations problems regardless of how long ago that it has ended” have a bigger stake in the perpetuation of that myth than those who are constantly being clubbed by it. In their jaundiced myopic eyes, whites are nothing more than “slave owners by proxy.”“
..my former pastor, Jeremiah Wright..” The word “former” makes its appearance here ONLY after the miracle of YouTube revealed Wright’s blind hatred that is matched only in its ferocity by the bilious bombast from within the walls of the Mosque of the Fevered Brow in the former American city of Dearbornistan, Michigan or within any smelly taxi cab in New York City.. According to BHO/JFK, Wright was an “occasional” critic and his remarks “could be considered controversial.” The use of “could be” comes from someone who, for fear of losing political traction, wants to appease everyone. Later, we are told that the bile contained within Wright’s screeds were merely “snippets.” That is the equivalent of listening to an hour-long speech on any given topic that is spiced with, “oh, by the way, the Jews are all vermin..” Doesn’t that little “snippet” taint that which came before and after it? Did anyone care about the insights of Jimmy “The Greek” Snyder before or after his vile comment on the “NFL Today” Show? No, but through the dilated eyes of BHO/JFK, it became necessary to spend nearly a thousand words regaling the world with the humanitarian impulses and works of the good reverend. That is how you distance yourself from someone while trying not to alienate the parishioners. That is how you speak from both sides of your face in order to save it.. By the by, OBL built a lot of schools and roads in the Middle east, but his actions relative to that day in September nullifies anyone getting away with trying to convince me that he is a misunderstood but benevolent altruist…
“..the history of racial injustice in this country..passed on from an earlier generation..” Once again, the left, who believes that being “reminded” of 9-11 is just “mindless flag waving and Muslim bashing”, demands that in order for the old discriminatory wounds from hundreds of years in the past to heal, they must be opened anew by those who weren’t its victims.
..”the inferior education..” The Democratic Parties most fervent of endorsers, the National Education Association, are the ones supplying this quality “education”. If you ask the NEA, they will tell you that the root cause of this “inferior education” is a “lack of funding.” Take it up with them if you dare, Mr. Unifier..
“..lack of economic opportunity among black men..” Shall we rephrase that to read, “a lack of economic initiative among some black men”? In this era of “fairness” in lending, where the ability or desire to pay off a loan is irrelevant to its acquisition, there are no excuses left for anyone to seriously play relative to their individual “failure.”
“..Anger over welfare and affirmative action helped forge the Reagan Coalition..” Here BHO/JFK claims that the Reagan Revolution was founded over an irrational racist anger. It appears that those private tutoring sessions with reverend Wright really began to sink into Obama’s intellectual terra firma. If it were that easy to explain away the Reagan Revolution as mere wordplay, then Obama’s campaign, “The Helium of Hope”, would have locked up the nomination by now as opposed to the struggle he is engaged in with an ex First Lady without a political resume. Those who simply called Reagan “The Great Communicator”, have no understanding of the value and substance of the words he spoke and the action that invariably followed them.
“..the legacy of discrimination..” The left hopes to manipulate and capitalize upon the failure of certain individuals by basing their interpretation of that failure solely upon his or her pigmentation alone.
“..ladders of opportunity unavailable for previous generations..” The liberal answer to discrimination is the implementation of THEIR discrimination laughingly referred to as “affirmative action.” To recognize and reward based on pigmentation as opposed to achievement is discrimination. Equality of opportunity is what the conservatives seek, equality of outcome is the discriminatory foundation of the left. Color blindness is now color consciousness.
“..we’ll be talking about some other distraction..” BHO/JFK thanks God every single day for “other distractions.” These distractions afford him the opportunity to prepare another superficial sermon with which to wow his acolytes. These distractions become the convenient excuse to evade topics of substance. Obama is nothing more than Chauncey Gardener without the homburg hat, the cane and the suitcase…
A man that insults the Reagan legacy has the audacity to steal from it without paying the royalties. BHO/JFK’s nonsensically unending references to “hope”, are nothing more than the liberal rephrasing of Reagan’s eternal optimism. Reagan believed in substance and details, two things that are intellectual Ipecac to the BHO/JFK campaign.
After all of the keeling over is done, we see BHO/JFK clumsily stumbling around within the political minefield using thousands of words to say nothing in the hopes that no one will notice, or at least, that no one will be offended.
