But they look so neat in their bow ties
Today's latest reminder of Obama's past, and PRESENT!
By Mike DeVine, Legal Editor for The Minority Report and The HinzSight Report
Ever wonder why Obama ALWAYS refers to America's #1 racist as "Minister"?
JERUSALEM – Sen. Barack Obama employed and continues to employ senior staffers who belong to the Nation of Islam, and the presidential candidate has some "worrying" ties to the controversial group headed by Louis Farrakhan, a former key Obama insider told WND.
The former insider, who spoke on condition of anonymity, expressed particular concern that Obama employed at least two Nation members in his early days as a state senator, when his office was staffed by only a handful of workers.
"When you're a state senator, you have little money given to you to hire staff. It is ironic that two of Obama's employees in those days were known Nation of Islam activists when Obama employed perhaps a total of maybe three or four staffers," said the former insider.
The former insider confirmed Obama is directly aware of the Nation of Islam members on his staff.
Obama was elected to the Illinois state Senate in 1996, serving the 13th district, which then spanned Chicago's South Side neighborhoods, including areas in which Farrakhan was considered to be highly influential.
Months ago, gamecock noticed that:
I have noted previously that I have found it quite curious that Barack Obama always refers to the number one racist in America by the honorific “minister”, as do his supporters and those that respect him, whereas most everyone else refers to him as ‘Louis” Farrakhan.
I always have deemed this significant, as I think it provides a window into Obama’s thought processes and, I think, that this, along with his friendly associations with an unrepentant terrorist and his “bitter” remarks about white people that prefer Hillary to him, is evidence of his extreme ignorance and naiveté, born of his life within a leftist cocoon.
Even during his latest “race”, i.e. Jeremiah Wright, damage control speech, when he is ostensibly denouncing the Black Muslim leader thought to have been involved in the assassination of Malcolm X after X discovered that white people were not devils, he still can’t bring himself to refer to this sick racist creep without the title of respect:
But when he states and then amplifies such ridiculous propositions as the U.S. government somehow being involved in AIDS, when he suggests that Minister Farrakhan somehow represents one of the greatest voices of the 20th and 21st centuries, when he equates the United States wartime efforts with terrorism, then there are no excuses.
And so when I start hearing comments about conspiracy theories and AIDS and suggestions that somehow Minister Farrakhan has been a great voice in the 20th century, then that goes directly at who I am and what I believe this country needs.
Barack Obama says he wants to “bridge gaps”, but there are some bridges Obama will not cross, and one, is to disrespect Louis Farrakhan. Barack found out this week that not only was the din of his 20-year pew parked butt political calculation possibly non-transferable beyond the level of senator for a deep blue state, but also that his audaciously hopeful, hate America minister is quite ready to hate him.
I wonder if the veteran of the “Chicago Way” of politics, living in a Big House Rezko made possible, finally got the message that he dare not dis Calypso Louis is public?
“Minister” Farrakhan, Barack?
To what does he minister, other than hate?
Taranto's Best of the Web thinks that
...it seems only a matter of time before an Obama-Nation of Islam connection, if true, draws the attention of the mainstream media.
I predicted in December 2006 that the GOP would win the presidency due to the Dem's rejection of Bill Clinton's middle way and move to the far left that resented his stifling of all but the pro-abortionists for eight years and then saw their entitlement taken away in Florida in 2000 (with insult added to injury by President Bush's re-election in 2004 despite 12 months 24/7 of msm-dem bushlied), a Gamecock theory echoed today by
The Democrats have gone all the way. They have nominated arguably the most left-wing major party presidential nominee ever, certainly the most left-wing since George McGovern.
Obama’s victory is a repudiation not just of the Clintons personally, but of Clintonism. Bill Clinton won the presidency based on the Democratic Leadership Council model of a new kind of Democratic politics that pivoted toward the center. Obama not only has had no Sister Souljah moment, he initially embraced his Sister Souljah (in the form of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, introduced to the American public in videotaped rants). He has made no creative policy departure on par with Bill Clinton’s advocacy of welfare reform in 1992 — in fact, has made no creative policy departure at all. He is the old wine of McGovernite liberalism poured into the alluring wineskin of “hope” and “unity.”
Then when I learned of Obama and the Obaminations in his past, I re-affirmed my confidence in 2007.
I have been predicting that he wouldn't get over 42% of the popular vote and will lose in a Dukakis like elctoral landslide.
I think that's too pessimistic a prediction.
McGovern II anyone?
