Wednesday New Left Blogosphere Support Group

Looks like I’m not the only one tired of Keith Olbermann’s anti-Hillary rants. People are tired of DailyKos. Ya know, sometimes you wanna go where everyone knows your name and they’re always glad you came.

If you’re tired of getting kicked around by former friends, you’re not alone. I’m not sure how this will all play out. I hope we can all make up and focus on the issues (like making sure votes are counted properly) rather than focusing on the candidates, which are always secondary to me. Until then, feel free to say Bye Bye Bye to the meanies who want us “typical” Hillary supportin’ “Archie Bunker” folk to just go away.

    This election cycle I vowed to not talk about politics so much with my friends – I drove everyone nuts with it in ’04 and after due to my support of John Kerry. The good news is I learned not to make politics the focus of discussion with friends – the bad news is I don’t have much else to talk about, politics being a main focus in my life. 😉

    What I find extremely alarming is how the black community is rallying behind Reverend Wright and Obama’s Church. Every time I hear a black person talking about this situation and justifying it, I am more outraged with their lack of understanding about how wrong it is. They lose all credibility with me and most other people.

    After watching interview after interview with black leaders it’s apparent the black community thinks that these types of Sermons are Ok and it appears that this is “normal” in the black community. When you have the black Churches preaching hatred towards others and slamming America, this explains why racism is alive and strong today. It’s evident that there is more than 30 seconds of these hateful Sermons, which the black community is trying to convince us of otherwise. We feel like we have done our part in riding racism, but its apparent the black community has keep it alive and strong.

    Most American’s find these types of Sermons insulting and damaging to the community. Most Americans couldn’t image going to Church and hearing this hatred and anti-America messages. Most Americans believe that Church is a place to go to feed the soul, to be empowered, and spiritually enlightened. Most Americans believe that Sermons should not include hate towards others and slamming America.

    This Democrat isn’t bamboozled by a beautiful speech, actions speak louder than words.

    Obama being a member of this racist and anti-America Church is wrong. I don’t care what 92% of the black people say…. or how they try to justify it….All of us have been working on the race issue, and many so evolved with it…but this is despicable that anyone would think that these types of Sermons are OK…

    OBAMA financially supported this Church and Reverend for 20 years…Which means he helped perpetuate the HATE…

    There is no justifying this…It’s so wrong

    It wouldn’t be a big deal but Obama says he wants to unite us, but he is a member and financial supporter of a racist Church…This is Hypocritical… and wrong for anyone wanting to be the President…By supporting the Church and the Reverend he empowered them, and helped perpetuate the HATE…It’s really clear….He can be forgiven, if he steps down and acknowledges how wrong this is and gets the black community to understand that these types of Sermons are unacceptable…30 seconds of it is unacceptable….we know there’s a lot more…

    I feel the same way about that church, but from the other direction. You guys have no clue what I can say about men when I get ranting and get up a good head of steam.

    But DAMN IT, to stand there and rant over and over again, week in week out, to a captive audience including children? Christ, this is starting to sound like an indoctrination cell on How To Hate Your Country And Blame Your Whole Life On Someone Else. I’ll get up a head of steam, let it out in a safe space, maybe blog it, and then take a damned deep breath.

    I cannot believe that people willingly subject themselves to this sort of CRAZED SCREAMING week in week out, for decades.

  5. I guess I am a member of a really unique miniority. As a white person, I am one of only two white members of a local black Baptist Church. I have been a member of this church for some time and have NEVER heard our pastor speak any hate. Both he and his wife strive to improve both the spiritual and physical lot of the community at large. We sponsored a Christmas drive and thru it were able to provide two gifts to each child in a family. (irregardless of race) Furthermore our small congregation goes to a nursing home the first Sunday of each month to provide hymns and a short service to the patients. I get a lot of satisfaction out of being a member of our church choir.
    You are mistaken, vli, when you state that, “it’s apparent that the black community thinks that these types of sermons are OK.
    You are mistaken when you state that, “it appears that this is normal in the black community.” Perhaps the “black leaders” being choosen to speak on TV think it’s OK but you can rest assured that the majority of blacks DO NOT support hate language. Maybe this type of black leader is afforded TV time isimply to stir up a white backlash similar to the one you are exhibiting. The reason that “racism is strong and alive today” is because of the racist dialogue that the networks portray as typical. The unpatriotic and racist remarks were played over,and over, and over again by certain networks. In their zeal to try to portray Obama in a bad light–they simply fuled the seeds of bigotry!!!
    Yes, “Most Americans (including black Americans) find this type of sermon insulting and damaging to the community.” Obama is not being hypocritical. He has disavowed himself totally from the hate language of Pastor Wright. His recent speech in Philadelphia was both intelligently and eloquently delivered. His speech has received praise from both democrats and republicans alike. It,in fact, has been hailed as one of the most honest and definitive speechs on race relations delivered in decades. And, who better to deliver it than Barack Obama who has the unique perspective of having bi-racial parents. I agree that “30 seconds” of this type of sermon is too much but DON”T AGREE that “there’s a lot more”. Don’t buy-in to the media promoted lie that blacks hate whites. As a white person in a black church, I can assure you that this is not the norm! We need to let love rule our collective hearts and stop jumping to media fuled conclusions. Only by so doing can we fulfill the directive of Jesus to,”love one another” Buzz

    Buzz, I’m sorry, but you vote with your feet. That sort of stuff doesn’t just come up out of nowhere — maybe your church is not like that, but this one is or else the congregation would have been jsut as shocked and offended by a sermon like that as everyone else was.

  7. Janis

    I think Buzz is correct, it’s not the norm in the majority of black congregations.

    And quite frankly I don’t think it serves anyone to continue harping on the issue.

    Anybody out there think Rev. Wright was right? Anybody out there who could agree with some of what he said? This ought to be a non-issue, much like the moron who is asking Sen. Clinton questions about Ms. Lewinsky.
