I personally know many of them who still have a deep rooted, well hidden hatred, for white Americans, for perceived racial grievances, both past and present. These people will interact with whites on a daily basis, but in private in the presence of other AA's express their true bitterness regarding this country, and the need for change, no matter how radical that change may be
Based on things I have heard and read of his associations in the 90's with Bill Ayers and others,, when he was 34 and not 8 years old (as Barack relates his age to the bombing apex of Ayers, instead of when his true interaction occurred), I believe Barack Obama is one of those people with a basic belief that America is an evil and racist nation that needs radical change. I not only believe that of Barack, but of his wife Michelle too, who early in his campaign let slip her true feelings about this country.
I too once held that same bitterness, and I won't claim it doesn't some time well up in me. But I finally rejected , and am able to overcome the hatred and bitterness, as I came to understand through my Christian spiritual experience what the true causes of racism and all other hatred and disputes between humans truly stem from.
But I truly doubt Barack and Michelle have rejected their hidden rage and bitterness, under the warped hateful Afro-centric version of Christianity , which they were subjected to for many years under the pastor-ship Rev Jeremiah Wright.

While ramblin around the interwebs one lonely bumpty night, I was researching a piece that pits our current eco-nomic state, with the aims of the sixties radical Black Panther's Party and then the spin off's that Bill Ayers Weathermen were trying to impress in a very serious way back when he was blowing up bombs at the Pentagon and I find this beautiful prophetic piece published before the election had even happened and the campaign was underway.
Here is Senator Patty Murray's response to me via email regarding my email to her about the outrage over the AIG scandal back about fourty years ago. I can't wait to hear from her about FOCA:
Look Out Alinsky!
Everything old is new again, so the dead split down the center of the Catholic Church in America, the Liberal wing that Obama is exploiting for all that it is worth, is coming alive again and studying Saul Alinsky, that Bugbear Extraordinaire in order to out radical the Radical Church.
Does that remind you at all of Spy vs. Spy?

Where is the outrage?
Often times, I have set my heart on things of great personal importance and largely I have seen them crushed. A heart is going to face such things in life, as it is evident on many, many crossroads, through life's hurdles. Over and over, the same pattern is repeated, if things go further in this direction, one may say, then a part of life's plan will open for me and perhaps what greatness that is inside of me, the gift of life itself and the good that is in it will be more able to be built in this world. But only 'if.'
Whatever you see 'if' as being.
Whether you dear reader believe that there is a cosmic set of forces controlling it, you would branch out from this crossroad into your own internal process, into the praise of the mighty power of a healing and knowing and still very loving God. Or, you would conversely believe that there is a universe of random particles winging and sizzling at fantastic rates too incomprehendable to understand, with some unfathomed purpose, to what end is not knowable and you'd be seriously, seriously insane for even looking into the possibility that it will ever make sense.
Two choices with all of the independent and random justifications as there are individuals there to rationalize them. That is not the concern here. What is the concern is the personal and independent is and will always be a part of the whole of society and society is the universal. Every time that I met myself at the crossroads and made my decision I made it in accord with my conscience and full knowledge of what I had in me to become and I have begged to be but nothing has been true, if not that each time iot has come to pass that something will not,cannot allow it to pass. Some might call them teachable moments, where failure meets ego and selfish desire. Over and over in my life, something in me has brought me face to face with the reality that moral failure leads to personal suffering and being cut off from life itself and the destruction of that the position that makes it possible to even be at the crossroads of life, to have that chance. My moral failure has led to my futile effort at the perfection I know is in me.
Yesterday was the destruction of so much that I had in my heart for that perfection, the sublimnity within me and for us all. The Presidents Commencement Day Speech at Notre Dame was the death of so much of what I had hoped for my world, for my country and for the world. I feel personally responsible and I beg the world to defend me while I cannot defend myself. I have sinned against myself and that within me that is holy, so that, the world will never be that same. Defend me world, because what I have sinned against was you and what yesterday was if anything but the affirmation that you wish to be destroyed with sin and vain attempts to convert life's purpose for your own desire. So defend me. I somehow disbelieve that you can. No one anywhere seems genuinely interested in actually helping anybody else and it would be seriously, seriously insane to try because you cannot get anywhere near helping someone else get back to that crucible crossroad and align every crosshair and make them shoot through into the making of the sublimnity for which each one of us is made.
I will be further from what I need because of my own failing. Feeling that I have sinned and failed to speak out in time or act in some way that would make any difference at all. So what is the worlds interest in this matter, but that millions of others have happened and have gone past the crossroads and gotten farther and more tarnished along the way. The issue of abortion will never go away because it is a sin that destroys the holiness and sublimnity within each one of us. Because that possibility and chance is all we have through our personal decisions. We have either to accept the love that we have been offered by a loving God, or we reject Him. The consequence of following our heart and desires is the choice of following a cruel master, because every time the origin is human, it leads to destruction and a greater distance from the possibility of making the world a better place. There are too many factors and it is beyond us to do it.
Nothing could be more destructive to live itself than abortion. The consequence is immeasurable because the crossroads will never be more than a feeling. The Rubicon we have crossed from which we can never go back. Forgive me world that I did not offer a more vocal and unconvincing argument that the danger was ever more greater, that we will never go back and could not if we tried. We will now have to press on without God and without the goodness which is our destiny because we have made war on ourselves. Forgive me God for not watching out for your flock any better. Why it has not gone together the way that it needed to I can only answer to you in my faith, but that I realized my error only too late. It was not about me, but it went through me. Have mercy. Every step from now on is further from progress, further from the place where the human heart can reside and seek rest. All that is left is the destruction of all that is important in life, and every kind of deciet and deception will be employed to hide it.
How did Fr. Jenkins at Notre Dame and all of those people who are a part of my faith that support this man, who acts as an appeaser while he steals what he wants and sows contempt even in his natural enemies homes? It sounded to me like Hitler's Sudetenland speech where he still sounded reasonable, using straw man to paint his detractors as unreasonable. He got many people to believe that he was a reasonable man, that he was thoughtful and had considered one's interests and yet had to compromise a little principle to gain so much of what the German people could be. Always, with the tuck of principle here, a little reasonable trimming of purpose there and a tiny bit of loss of freedom there and always ruthlessly fast in loose in action, covering so much so fast that one could never believe it. How he does it will matter very little very soon because from now on, the church has the soil of abortion on its hands now, and the church is made from Christ sacrifice, the most Holy and redeeming mercy. This man knows how to destroy the American church because of so many willing acolytes in his new church. The church of so much incredible power that it will drag the whole world down with it when it will be crushed. There is no other possibility, as we are destined to be caught in it.
Forgive me. I have failed. But think of Bonhoeffer, and pray that I will have the strength to face what is coming with as much fire and faith to be a good soldier in the time of the greatest darkness. There must be a new light, have mercy. Amen.

I guess you have pretty much been saturated by now about the new administrations Shock and Awe on deliberately and steadfastly prosecuting a war on terror against conservatives in America, which stands to reason since to their unusual intelligence makes everything Bushes fault and the fault of all of their followers, the neo-cons and anyone around them that does not believe that the Truthers Were Right. But here's a little news for most of them. They are wrong, but their pig headed love for all things progressive means that they will drive us all down with them because a fifth column media says its all right and any cracks in reason can be pasted over with another hit peice on fake news or, perhaps what Paris Hilton's dog had for lunch.
So, when it comes to dialog, you pretty much have to go it alone with them whenever they challenge you on the fact that you don't echo chamber the echo chamber that follows their star chamber which just happens to be everyone and everything Barack Obama, but I repeat myself at the risk of nausea.
But remember when, not to long ago the nation rose up in the millions to defend, not just once but three times in California, and almost countless numbers in states all across America, time and time, etc. That every time it came up for a vote, it was voted down, that people did not want Gay Marriage. It was blamed on the Latter Day Saints for having provided funds to a political PAC to campaign against it this last time in California, which I am sure that you have heard and could just as easily find reference to it as I can, that this comes right out of Saul Alinsky Power Tactics 7 and 3 to freeze and then ridicule, as well as a few others I could easily argue the hows and the why for's. But during all of 'the struggle' for 'gay rights' and 'equality' for 'gay marriage' came the argument that if gays ever got the right to marry, legally recognized, bona fide stamp of federal approval, then that would back door every other form of sexual perversion being officially recognized and sanctioned. I know, it was a slippery slope, but again, that does not mean that its a false assumption, when the decision rendered was false in it's assumptions,
The argument was that gays should have the right to marry because no one picks who they are as a characteristic from birth, so how could they be responsible for their own lack of similar rights? It is the nature vs. nurture argument that goes way back to the first officially recognized form of homosexuality in the Kinsey Report. But that has nothing to do with the governments trying to throw off the yoke to protect its citizens from the destruction of Natural Law. This is something which Cicero warned us well about and because the founders wanted to secure for us in the debates on the constitution written in the Federalist Papers. I like Cicero because he was murdered for what he believed, he is quoted here because he chose to say what he believed anyway, though it cost him his life.
So, now in one of the countries which favor gay marriage with legal sanction and have had it for quite some time, comes a case that the gay alliance said for years would never happen, a polygamy case in Canada.
• "Canadians of all backgrounds share some basic values, like a belief in human dignity, equality between men and women and the rule of law. It is these values that unite us as Canadians," states a note prepared for the minister. "The practice of polygamy represents a clear challenge to those unifying values."
• The Criminal Code outlaws "any form of polygamy" or "any kind of conjugal union with more than one person at the same time, whether or not it is by law recognized as a binding form of marriage.
This realy is beginning to sound familiar isn't it?
Previously, We have covered this fight and the origins of it in one of our posts, they say that brevity is the soul of wit, therefor, I mock myself by this blog.
The enemy has long had great love and mystical affection for one radical of radicals, fully raised in the wobblie(IWW) tradition; Saul Alinsky. At the risk of harping, it does need further explanation that all of the colleges in the top ten during the eighties were trying to teach this stuff and mostly succeeding, I was myself thrown out of a college for writing (poorly) a term paper on human rights, that of the unborn but still very much alive people. For that I was ridiculed, so points 3 through 6 of Power Tactics from the book, (Saul Alinsky; Rules For Radicals,) are discussed here. Enjoy!
- “Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules. You can kill them with this. They can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity.”
However, Alinsky also taught the clergy to fight the clergy on this one. More on this later I hope.
- “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule. Also, it infuriates the opposition, who then react to your advantage.”
- “The threat is generally more terrifying than the thing itself.”
- “In a fight almost anything goes. It almost reaches the point where you stop to apologize if a chance blow lands above the belt.”
This is a declaration of war. Cicero said it best:
- True law is right reason in agreement with nature; it is of universal application, unchanging and everlasting; it summons to duty by its commands, and averts from wrongdoing by its prohibitions... It is a sin to try to alter any part of this law, nor is it allowable to repeal any part of it, and it is impossible to abolish it entirely. We cannot be freed from its obligations by senate or people, and we need not look outside ourselves for an expounder or interpreter of it. And there will not be different laws at Rome and at Athens, or different laws now and in the future, but one eternal and unchangeable law will be valid for all nations and for all times, and there will be one master and ruler, that is God, over us all, for he is the author of this law, its promulgator, and its enforcing judge. Whoever is disobedient is fleeing from himself and denying his human nature, and by reason of this very fact he will suffer the worst punishment. (Quoted in Ebenstein, Great Political Thinkers, p.133.)
Thus, the wicked have overpowered the strong and they themselves will cast themselves down. All we need to do now, is get up and fight this battle and win this war.
