Obama is not a liberal Democrat. He is a radical whatever -- and he wants to be the ruler of this nation.
This Powerline story is great, in and of itself. More than that, it is a segue into a discussion concerning Obama's exposed radicalism. After four years, we now know a lot about about this secretive man. We are need to drive the debate in this direction -- blog editor.
BARACK OBAMA TO KHALID MUHAMMAD: TWO DEGREES OF SEPARATION
John Podhoretz and Patterico highlight a close connection between Barack Obama and Khalid Muhammad. Obama, as we know, was a disciple of Derrick Bell; in the video that Breitbart.com released a few days ago, he urged his listeners to open their hearts and minds to Bell’s teachings. So, what were Bell’s teachings?
Bell was a fervent admirer of Louis Farrakhan and Khalid Muhammad of the Nation of Islam. Podhoretz quotes a 1994 interview in which Bell said, “We should really appreciate the Louis Farrakhans and the Khalid Muhammads while we’ve got them.” Our readers are well aware of the repellent Farrakhan, but who was Khalid Muhammad? Patterico gives us Muhammad’s “Kill the Cracker” speech, in which Muhammad, whom Derrick Bell so admired, advocated genocide:
There is a video posted at this point in the text
Muhammad gave his “kill them all” speech in 1993, and was famous for it in the circles in which Derrick Bell moved when Bell said, in 1994, that “we should really appreciate” Khalid Muhammad. [UPDATE: This YouTube video is from a reprise, circa 1996, of Muhammad's 1993 speech; you can see the 1993 speech, where Muhammad first said, "We kill the women. We kill the children. We kill the babies. We kill the blind. We kill the crippled. We kill the [imitates a crazy person]. We kill ‘em all. We kill the faggots. We kill the lesbians. We kill them all.” at the Patterico link.] >> You will want to finish the article and view the video, here.
Editor's comments: I have run a story that includes Obama hugging Derrick Bell and admonishing the Harvard student-body to "open your hearts" and listen to what Bell has to say. Look for Bell's pic (distinguished black man with glasses) on the down scroll . . . easy to find. I am hoping that the conservative blogosphere unites in making this election about the radicalism of "Shaq Obama," clearly a man with Black Muslim sympathies, at heart.
Bloggers need to press the notion of "fundamental transformation" as far as it will go.
There is nothing mediocre or non-radical about such a transformation. To push for fundamental transformation is to work for the effective over-throw of our [Constitutional] system, and that is exactly what this man has been doing for the past 3 1/2 years.
Understand that this man in our White House is no more a liberal Democrat than his wife is a sympathetic listener to Billy Graham's old tapes and interviews. These are radicals, plain and simple and are here to accomplish one purpose: Michelle defined that purpose better than anyone can when she said:
"Barack knows that we are going to have to make sacrifices; we are going to have to change our conversation; we're going to have to change our traditions, our history; we're going to have to move into a different place as a nation." May of 2008.
Understand this: her statement above makes no sense unless I am right in my assessment of Obamas' (both of them) radicalism.
I think we are miles ahead to separate the black sheep in the family of liberal pundits, and expose them for what they are, folks who do not claim the 240 year old American dream as their own. Dr. Derrick Bell saw the Constitution as the creation of a White Supremist society. It is not reasonable to believe that Obama is not sympathetic to this man's teachings. Van Jones has renounced the system. It is not reasonable to assume that his boss gives it due honor. Anita Dunn (Obama's communications director for years) proudly claimed the vision of Mao. It is not reasonable to assume that Obama does not share in some of tha vision. Eric Holder has announced to the nation, that as relates to race issues, this nation is "a nation of cowards." In making that announcement, Holder revealed a certain level of contempt for this country and the claims made for its dealings concerning race. It is not reasonable to assume that Obama feels differently. Cass Sunstein (Obama's regulatory czar) wants complete control of the internet and a pervasive cognitive infiltration of groups who speak out against the Administration. It is not reasonable to assume that Obama is not in full agreement with this agenda. Jeremiah Wright sees the United States as the creation of White Supremists, Christianity as a white man's religion and friendship with the Nation of Islam as a matter of preference. After 22 years in a deeply felt relationship with this man, it is not reasonable to assume that Obama does not share in the same beliefs and biases. While Obama does not prefer the harsh rhetoric of a Farrakhan or a Jeremiah Wright or a Van Jones, he has partnered with them, nonetheless. It is not reasonable to believe that "fundamental transformation" means less to him than to his associates.
