Only Love Can Drive Out Hate: Just Words?
Marie Jon’ assesses the latest revelations of Senator Obama’s character.
Only Love Can Drive Out Hate: Just Words?
By Marie Jon’
Barack Obama first appeared on the national political scene as a uniter with hope and promise in his words. In 2004 when he gave his now-famous keynote speech at the Democratic National Convention, Americans saw Obama emerge as someone special and unique. He was young and oozed poise and charisma. Without a doubt, the Democrat Party had their future presidential candidate in its sights.
Today, the Democrat National Party is stuck with nothing more than a leftist ideologue politician who uses empty words to astound those who sought after him.
Obama has lost his “Angel of Light” status, and he will never get it back. Today we see the Senator for what he is, a Marxist socialist with ties to highly questionable people. By November he will not be electable.
It is obvious that Obama welcomed Rev. Jeremiah Wright into his personal and professional life as long as it was politically expedient. Indeed, he sought to have him there. Americans are not so naive as to fail to notice that certain cast members in the Obama drama life were Wright’s doing. The Reverend knows who is who in Chicago, and he opened doors for his highly-talented prodigy.
Obama’s close business affiliation with Tony Rezko, now on trial for corruption, is just the tip of the iceberg. Then there is William Ayers “I don’t regret setting the bombs” In a most perverse twist of fate, we have a radical home grown terrorist who should be behind prison bars to this day. Instead, he is a professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Amazing! Yet Obama claims to know less about Ayers than he did Wright.
During the campaign we’ve become privy to quite a few things we did not know about Obama. It is enough to conclude that he is not made of presidential timber. Americans ought to be opened-minded, but we must be informed as well.
Mr. Goodbar (in this case, Mr. Obama) had people fainting at his campaign events. What happened to their messianic figure? Looking for the wrong kinda love in the wrong places; like in the movie, Democrats have wound up dancing with the devil.
Barack Obama’s image was created by the media and based solely on his charisma. We have now seen enough of this elitist counterfeit to draw an educated conclusion: The real Obama can be known through the words of his bigoted, anti-American ex-pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright.
Wright did us all a huge favor by making appearances throughout this past week. He provided us insight into the mind of Barack Obama. Through the personage of Wright, Americans have come face-to-face with the man who wants to become President. There is nothing left to ponder. America gets it. The heart of the suave, charming and well-spoken senator from Chicago is as twisted as the man who spiritually damaged Obama (and countless others) beyond repair.
In the midst of all this political disarray, Hillary Clinton will be tossed aside to satisfy the base of the Democrat Party. If Obama does not emerge the winner at the DNC Convention, Al Sharpton will conduct another Million Man March. Heaven forbid…
Be warned, however! Do not forget Rev. Wright’s words: He will heckle and dog Obama throughout the entire campaign; should he win the Oval Office in November, Wright has promised to make matters even worse.
Obama betrayed his followers, clinging to the worst side of human nature, harboring hate and bigotry behind the facade of an attractive, promising personality. He can denounce Wright to Kingdom Come, but people will never trust the man again.
For 20 years, Barack Obama sat in a church were Black Liberation theology was preached and practiced. It is not Christianity, but Marxism with Holy Scripture tossed in here and there to make hate speech sound like the language of a noble mission.
“The goals of BT are to turn religion into sociology, Christianity into a political agenda, Jesus into a black Marxist rebel, and the gospel into violent revolution. They are more interested in politics than preaching the gospel.”
From The Truth About Black Liberal Theology by Dr. Robert A. Morey, an internationally-recognized scholar in the fields of theology and apologetics, 1994.
Obama stayed at Trinity United Church for two decades without denouncing what he heard and witnessed. By doing and saying nothing, he allowed Rev. Wright’s demeaning and tragic conduct to continue before his little girls and wife, the latter of whom adopted notions that America was a bad country.
Where, is this man who would take on the ultimate responsibility for all of America’s citizens, was the protection and concern for his own precious family? If Obama had been a dutiful father and husband, he would have sheltered them from such bitterness and corruptive hatred.
Why did Obama permit Wright to taint the spirit of his immediate family and fill their minds with hateful thoughts regarding people who were not of color? Obama’s cold and calculating actions (and inactions) were rites of passage within Chicago’s leftist circles. Obama perceived that all of this was necessary in order to reach his ultimate goal. He put himself and his quest for political power before the welfare of his own family.
Obama was supposed to be the candidate that transcended race, yet we’ve never seen his entire family standing alongside him. Why? Because he is not who he has portrayed himself to be. Obama’s white relatives ? grandmother, cousins, aunts and uncles ? have never appeared with him. It is arguable that he has treated them shabbily and by virtue of this indeed does identify himself in mind as “the black candidate.”
Are Americans to believe that such a man has what it takes to lead our nation? In the words from “Dreams of My Father” lie answers to many of the questions Americans have been asking themselves. Read Obama’s thoughts and understand that this is a man who rejects his own flesh:
“I ceased to advertise my mother’s race at the age of 12 or 13, which I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites.
“I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother’s race.
“It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names.
“And, from “The Audacity of Hope”: “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”
If unchecked, the Democratic National Committee’s course has the very real potential to set our country back forty years in race relations. It is all too clear that the Democrats have bred a race problem within their own party. Now they wish to infect all of America.
Let us send a clear message with our votes that we are not interested in having a continual, specious dialogue about race issues that were addressed years ago. America has only gotten better, not bitter, as some would have us believe.
The first black president will come from the party of Abraham Lincoln. Rest assured that this individual is well worth waiting for. “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
