Obama’s De Facto Running Mate And A Brief For Whitey

Bill O’Reilly has labeled it the “Pastor Disaster.” Yes, I am talking about Jeremiah Wright. I know, Old Media tried to bury the story by inserting a small gaff John McCain made in Iraq, but that turned out to be small potatoes compared to this. Even Hillary Clinton is turning the spotlight back to this story.

But I am revisiting it for a different reason. While growing up, many in the establishment tried to make me feel guilty for being a white man. Well, I’m not. Apparently, Barack Obama is banking on people like me have this “white guilt.” He’s going to lose on that bet. I have no white guilt to give. And here is why: racism coming from blacks is just as bad as racism coming from whites.

Doug Patton gives a good example of how Obama is simply a black racist. From his most recent column:

Barack Obama would not have stayed in this Afrocentric, separatist church run by a paranoid, bigoted leader if he did not subscribe to the rhetoric that was being preached. His insistence on defending Jeremiah Wright tells us a great deal about what Obama himself believes.

Nothing could be simpler, or more clear, or more to the point.

Patton goes on to tell us more about what an Obama Presidency would mean to us:

He believes the government is a tool for redistributing wealth from those who earn it to those who don’t.

He thinks government, which rarely does anything efficiently, could and should dispense health care to 300 million people.

He believes our borders should remain wide open and would do nothing to close them.

He believes that abortionists should have the right to kill a newborn child who somehow miraculously survives an abortion.

He wants to wave the white flag in Iraq, the central front in the war against radical jihadism, thereby surrendering to forces which will be further emboldened by our timidity, just as they were after Bill Clinton’s misadventures in Somalia.

He wants to raise taxes to levels this nation has never seen. His reckless collectivist economic policies would destroy small businesses, make everything more expensive and empower government to have more control over our lives than at any time in our history.

Any questions?

Obama Has Chosen His Running Mate
Doug Patton
March 25, 2008

So, why don’t I have “white guilt?” Well, Pat Buchanan explains that with a no-holds-barred column about that very topic.

Pat wondered how Obama would respond to the revelations that Wright was a lying, bigoted racist. It turns out that Obama responded using the same old rhetoric that has been used by race-baters since the 70’s. In other words, nothing we haven’t already heard before.

From TownHall.com:

What is wrong with Barack’s prognosis and Barack’s cure?

Only this. It is the same old con, the same old shakedown that black hustlers have been running since the Kerner Commission blamed the riots in Harlem, Watts, Newark, Detroit and a hundred other cities on, as Nixon put it, “everybody but the rioters themselves.”

Was “white racism” really responsible for those black men looting auto dealerships and liquor stories, and burning down their own communities, as Otto Kerner said — that liberal icon until the feds put him away for bribery.

The so-called “leaders” of the black community seem to have only one rule: “Blame Whitey first.” Well, Pat also looks at what Whitey has done to atone for the sins of slavery and racism.

Read on:

Barack says we need to have a conversation about race in America.

Fair enough. But this time, it has to be a two-way conversation. White America needs to be heard from, not just lectured to.

This time, the Silent Majority needs to have its convictions, grievances and demands heard. And among them are these:

First, America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known.

Wright ought to go down on his knees and thank God he is an American.

Second, no people anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than white Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the ’60s on welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the African-American community into the mainstream.

Governments, businesses and colleges have engaged in discrimination against white folks — with affirmative action, contract set-asides and quotas — to advance black applicants over white applicants.

Churches, foundations, civic groups, schools and individuals all over America have donated time and money to support soup kitchens, adult education, day care, retirement and nursing homes for blacks.

We hear the grievances. Where is the gratitude?

Barack talks about new “ladders of opportunity” for blacks.

Let him go to Altoona and Johnstown, and ask the white kids in Catholic schools how many were visited lately by Ivy League recruiters handing out scholarships for “deserving” white kids.

Is white America really responsible for the fact that the crime and incarceration rates for African-Americans are seven times those of white America? Is it really white America’s fault that illegitimacy in the African-American community has hit 70 percent and the black dropout rate from high schools in some cities has reached 50 percent?

Is that the fault of white America or, first and foremost, a failure of the black community itself?

If there is to be some sort of dialogue, the above facts must be included in the discussion.
