Obama’s incredible denial
(Also, be sure not to miss the VFR thread, “Anti-Obamania!”)
A former pastor explains from his own experience how unbelievable it is for Obama to say after 20 years that he doesn’t agree with his own pastor’s preaching.
Update: A strong editorial on Obama and Wright in Investors Business Daily gives the full flavor of Wright’s Farakhan-like diatribes against evil white America. And we’re supposed to believe that Obama never heard these things? Over a period of twenty years? His denial makes him look like one of the biggest liars ever, and also like one of the biggest fools ever. It would be like St. Peter saying, “Gosh, I never heard Jesus say anything about his father in heaven. I thought he was taking us on nature walks.”
This exposure of Obama is a very good thing, because it reveals to whites the attitudes and beliefs of a major part of black America. With Obama, whites thought they were getting Sidney Poitier, but it turns out they’re getting the OJ Simpson verdict—the raw reality of American-hating black America which is always there, but which whites normally refuse to see because it would upset their reverie of racial equality and comity.
Even more, the fact that it is the nicest, least racial black man, even the race-transcending messiah himself, who has been uncovered as a life-long follower of a white-hating, Farakhan-like pastor, will shock whites out of their dream of racial sameness and into the reality of racial differences. But, as I see it, this is not just about stopping Obama for the Democratic nomination, and it’s also not about helping McCain. If, notwithstanding the current exposure of him, Obama is nominated and elected, that will not be bad, but good. Four years of Obama in the White House would be like four years of blacks dancing in the street over the OJ Simpson verdict. The white awakening would be irreversible. And if whites awoke and began to resist permanently the liberal lies about race, the lie that the races are the same, the lie that any race difference is whites’ fault for which they must forever atone, it could mean nothing less than the salvation of America.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Obama in the White House, as damaging as it might be, means life for conservatism, and thus life for America, or at least the chance of life for America. McCain in the White House means death for conservatism, and thus death for America, or at least a condition approaching closer and closer to death.

How does “Obama’s incredible denial” fit with your earlier claim that “He is a genuinely nice person—that’s not something you can put on.”? He HAS put it on to make whites believe that of him. On first principles, I wouldn’t believe any major politician is genuinely nice. If one seems so, it’s simply a matter of looking harder and of remembering that all major politicians make promises they know they cannot fulfill. Obama has been happy to let whites hope for certain things (his presidency would “heal” America etc) that will never come to pass. He gets the power, they get the disappointment. It’s a confidence trick, in other words, and nice people do not use con tricks.Josh W. writes:
Has it occurred to you that the best explanation for the timing and content of Rev Wright’s (and Farrakhan’s) remarks is that deep down these two men would rather Obama not be elected president? Surely if they really wanted Obama to win, they would not be so stupid as to think that these sorts of kooky, ranting, and racist comments could in any way help him. They would lie low, perhaps issue the occasional conciliatory statement about interracial harmony and just keep out of the way drawing the least attention to themselves as possible. I really think Wright’s comments were, in a way, designed to sabotage Obama’s run for the White House.Randy writes:
As I recall from my Western civilization classes many years ago, the Revolutionary elements that overthrew the aristocratic order in France were the “liberal” French elite and academics. However, they were eventually turned out by the lower classes they liberated. The aristocrats and intellectuals were themselves then sent to the guillotine. It took Napoleon to restore order.James W., a collector of quotations, sends these:
