Earlier this week a Republican billionaire was planning an independent pro-Romney television ad campaign that would have targeted Obama’s vituperative, race-baiting, anti-American “Pastor” Wright.
(Everyone knows 50 percent of Republicans are filthy rich Robber Barons, and the other half are ignorant Christian fundamentalists who pray daily to be saved from people of a different skin tone.)
News of the planned ad campaign sparked an immediate firestorm of opposition. Both Obama (well, duh) and Romney declared it a bad idea, quite inappropriate. Tut! Tut!
The planned campaign was swiftly aborted. Wright remains swept beneath the rug.
I, on the other hand, think it would have been a superlative idea and very appropriate.
Absolutely nothing reveals more clearly the dark depths of Obama’s heart and core beliefs than his voluntarily sitting 20 years of Sundays listening to this “man of the cloth.”
Ditto for Michelle.
Here’s a brief taste of the Obama family’s spiritual adviser.
During the previous presidential campaign, McCain refused to jump on this humongous issue, this grizzly bear sitting across the room, and he lost. Looks like Romney fears it too.
Why are they afraid? Because Wright is black, one of the Sacred People. And the biracial Obama calls himself black, and everybody nods, giving him equal sanctity.
Were David Duke a preacher, and had one of his flock sought the presidency, he would have been hooted down, and appropriately so.
White racists are shunned, as they should be. Black racists, on the other hand, are treated with respect and nervousness. This is what decades of political correctness have brought us to, destructively.
No other American president of either party would have sat even 20 minutes listening to Wright’s venom, much less 20 years.
Putting this boldly before the public would have been a great idea.
The Republicans need to grow a pair.
