Just curious…why did the fact that Obama sat there listening to him for 20 years, got married by him (I think) and had his children baptised by him, not matter?
If John McCain or Mitt Romney had sat and listened to something analogous to that, they’d have never even gotten the nomination…for dog catcher.
This is NOT a troll thread. I am genuinely curious.[/quote]
Because black people can’t be bigots, according to the main stream thinking.
That, and the media just hid stuff. The USA media completely took sides in an election.
It reminds me when I studied the Tet Offensive in a US history class and when I studied it in an officer-training/tactics class. The US history class (written in English, for American college students) taught me it was a horrible defeat for the USA. The tactics class (all about killing people) taught me about what a complete cluster-fuck it was for the Vietnamese, how NO objectives were accomplished and how the USA troops soundly, and effectively, put down this effort with minimum USA casulaties.
I was thinking — how the disconnect — and realized the USA media, and Walter Cronkite, in particular, simply lied, and recast complete victory as a terrible defeat — because it fit their agenda.
Obama and many other things are the same way.
Black racism does not fit their agenda — ergo, it is not mentioned.
(Just a for example, did you know about black mobs having “Beat Whitey” nights at the Iowa State Fair? I didn’t either, but a friend (who is an observant Jew) got beaten by a crowd of 40+ blacks the other day. Been going on for a while, but was not on the local news — I guess it didn’t fit the agenda.)
TY, its beginning to make sense…I think. To me, the POTUS should be a man of honor who is completely honest and above board with his beliefs and his past. That IS rather delusional I know. When Obama won, I had to scratch my head and wonder.
Most people don’t think like me. To me, honesty and integrity are supreme values. To the people who chose Obama, those things aren’t nearly as important as their agenda.
These are all excellent posts, gents. I think I’m kinda figuring it out!!
