Why Do White People Hate White People?
While I appreciate Stanley Kurtz’s research and hard work, I really don’t get this at all.
It took me a while to put the pieces together, but I think I’ve figured out what’s had the Obama camp so worried about the Chicago Annenberg Challenge records. It goes way beyond Bill Ayers. In fact, it connects the dots between Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, and Obama’s own early radicalism. I lay out the details today in my new piece, "Wright 101." The gist of what I found is that, from his position as board chair at the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, Barack Obama was funneling hundreds of thousands of dollars to education programs built around the same extremist anti-American ideology preached by Jeremiah Wright. As I argue in today’s piece, this puts the Wright issue back in play in this campaign.
Wright should have never been off the table in the nation’s political discourse. Were a white, or even an Hispanic politician linked so closely to a blatant racist for so long, he or she wouldn’t even have a political career.
I’d argue it isn’t only liberal bias that is resulting in Obama being treated with kid gloves. This is a media that long ago decided that even mentioning the race of a criminal suspect in a story if he was black is wrong.
If any other ethnic group in America established itself within our inner cities and set about preaching the gospel of how America is wrong, they’d be ignored or shouted down until they no longer held sway. Instead, we pour money into this madness that an increasing number of middle class blacks have come to recognize as mis-guided and simply wrong.
We aren’t hearing much from Reverend Al or Jessie Jackson this time around, though Jackson now promises a more Muslim friendly America under Obama. How long do you think that’s going to last if Obama is elected President? But the real issue isn’t about race.
Our inner cities are dying, many are already dead – black people suffer the most from that. And it is the Jacksons, the Wrights and, yes, the Obamas who have hastened that demise.
But God knows, a white man shouldn’t say it. He would be a racist I suppose. Well, I call BS on that. Still, white America, as if there is such a thing anymore, sits around on its hands like a bunch of feckless cowards while political correctness propels the candidacy of an unqualified, extreme Leftist candidate for President – to be elected for one reason and one reason only – because he’s black.
How freaking pitiful is that? Wright should be in the political debate. And it doesn’t take a host of nefarious links to Obama to make the case. Name me one non-black politician who could survive this below. All those white Americans rationalizing away Wright, or saying it’s old news and not important make me ashamed to share the same color of skin. They’re nothing but a bunch of cowardly jerks who caved into the Left on what’s politically correct to think or say so long ago, they don’t deserve to be called conservative, libertarian or free-thinking at all.
