I am shocked! Shocked I say! Anti-Americanism in a social gospel congregation preaching racist and socialist aspirations? Shocked!
At the Trinity United Church of Christ website, can be found Dr. Wright’s talking points for Trinity United Church's Black Value System, which include: “African-centered thought, unlike Eurocentrism, does not assume superiority and look at everyone else as being inferior.“
I see. African-centered thought. Ok. So thought that is centered around African-centered thought, takes no position on other thoughts that are not centered around African-centered thoughts and values? Uh-huh.
Obama, a Harvard graduate with a perfect liberal voting record, who is seeking to nationalize the American health care system, replied "I vehemently disagree and strongly condemn the statements that have been the subject of this controversy," . Now That is shocking.
Sen.'s Chuckie Schumer and Chris Dodd said, it’s no big thing. “Hey we’ve been saying hate America first for decades too, what’s the big deal?" they admitted (though not in so many words). You may have caught Schumer & Obama’s latest bill, to put further legislative controls upon political speech during campaigns in order to end "deceptive" practices, and of course The New York Times editorial board enthusiastically supports this too - I'm unaware what Sen. John McCain thinks of these further limits upon political speech, but probably views it as treading on his turf.
The media, who have been supporting Obama, Hilary, Schumer, Harry “this war is lost” Reid for decades are shocked to hear Obama’s preacher preaching what everyone from Ward Churchill to Chomsky to Christiane Amanpour have been preaching – in our universities, televisions and public squares – for decades.
"It was just sooo clumsy, of him to come out and Say it in so many words like that! I mean really, isn't he aware of the code words and euphemisms we use?" Amanpour was quoted off the record as saying.
For the real record, a church or organization or political party, who believes in 'Black' values, Woman’s values, Tall People values, middle-eastern values, People with Big Feet values, Kenyan values, Irish values, German values... will not, in the last analysis, believe that Reason is a Value.
To believe that they would believe otherwise, is truly shocking - and very, very frightening.
