The Pied Piper of politics, Barack Obama, continued his deceptive flute-playing this week. Yesterday, he gave a much-anticipated speech in Philadelphia on the issue of race in this election year’s campaign.
The speech, at the National Constitution Center, was by far the most prominent airing of racial issues in Obama’s 13-month campaign to become the first black president. It was prompted by the wider notice his former pastor’s racial statements have been receiving in the past week or so.
“I can no more disown him than I can disown the black community,” Obama said. “I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother — a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me, a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world, but a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe.”
Obama’s most glaring problem is that he is a liberal. He can’t skirt that fact. Thus, every word that sloshes from his mouth wreaks of liberalism, which by nature, seek to drag people down in order to increase dependency on government. Nothing he said yesterday shed any new light on what his beliefs are.
Ken Blackwell, Family Research Council Action’s Senior Fellow for Family Empowerment and a black political leader too, put it best:
Barack Obama just gave an eloquent speech, but one that does not address the underlying nature of Senator Obama’s beliefs. Rev. Jeremiah Wright, like Mr. Obama, believes in a state-centered 21st century form of big-government socialism. This 21st century form of socialism is at the heart of the Liberation Theology Rev. Wright preaches from the pulpit. Today, Mr. Obama again made it clear, with all his eloquence, that he still embraces these beliefs that would require dismantling the free-market system that has made our country’s economy the most prosperous in all of human history.
It’s no secret that Obama has a highly distorted biblical worldview – anyone who uses the phrase, “some obscure passage…” has no clue what the bible or Christianity is. So what is the difference between Christianity and “Liberation Theology?” Blackwell continues:
In contrast to Liberation Theology, the Christian orthodoxy teaches about the nature of God, the nature of man, the relationship between the two in this life, and about the hereafter. Liberation Theology, on the other hand, is a belief system about political agendas, socialistic economic policy, and redistribution of wealth. Proponents of Liberation Theology, like Rev. Wright, teach that God commands us to form a government that will supervise our economy to create government-subsidized jobs under central-government planning; guarantee healthcare and education by having government control both; and achieve ‘economic equality’ by redistributing wealth through massive taxes on the affluent and massive government entitlements for the poor. And it advocates replacing governments that do not embrace this socialistic agenda.
For Obama to say he doesn’t condone his pastor’s hate-filled sermons irrelevant. Actually, what he doesn’t condone is the language, or the delivery method of Jeremiah Wright. But the end result, or socialist worldview, is one and the same between the two men.
