Bill O’Reilly has a little article about Obama’s choices in preachers. I say Obama is consistent, and wonder why this issue continues to get buried. He consistently favors activists, socialists and people with a proven Anti-American/American-hating focus.
His focus on being black is rather odd too. Was he not abandoned by his black father, and raised by his white side? He sure has not had to struggle for anything, and did not attend cheap colleges. He has been handed every break imaginable and then some, yet seems to favor the “man-got-ya-down” type preachers.
Obama went from Reverend Wright, to Reverend Wallace Charles Smith, yet another race-activist. And these guys are not just having road side protests on their off-days, they are performing a protest on the pulpit. Reverend Smith is still focused on the 3/5th reference that was removed in 1865 with the 13th Amendment. So this man is angry about something that has been defunct for nearly 1 1/2 centuries??
Why do black people need to revolve their lives around slavery? They use it in slang, music, justification for various actions, crime, bad choices, just anything they think is a barrier in their life. How is something that was eliminated nearly 150 years ago affecting them now? How is the “man” keeping them down, now? They have affirmative action, special grants, extra protection due to their race.. so if those things are keeping them down we should be kind and even the playing field (and really I think we should). It is actually quite unfair, it assumes they can not get or keep a job without a law, or get into college with out special privileges, etc. They need the same equal opportunities, it obviously is affecting their overall life, and attitude to the world.
Blacks were not the only slaves. Yet do you hear any other race that was affected demanding special privileges? There is a point of character and strength one can have if they choose to build from the past rather than sink beneath it.
So what does choosing that church, that pastor, say about Obama? Again look at his history, he is consistent. He looked to Wright, he looked up to Wright. Now sitting through a sermon with Smith, as he focuses on slavery, did Obama stir? Did he remove himself? Or did he sit and listen?
We are affected by the company we keep and choices we make. While we can all make mistakes, it is repeating them that is the problem. Obama continues to prove he makes bad choices, and he prefers people who have activist or anti-American agendas, again, what does that say about him? I think it says alot, and none of it is pleasant.
