As many a reader is aware, I have maintained for many months now that President Obama is a Marxist-Leninist with a marked affinity for Islam. I don’t believe he considers himself a Muslim, but it is – or should be – evident that he displays a dangerous favoritism for radical Islamists over our allies and even the American people. I’ve also asserted that many of his cohorts, particularly his cadre of czars, embrace a similar radical philosophy; some of them hold to even more ruthless doctrine than does Obama himself.
While Obama’s recent oratory has been replete with the boilerplate language of the politician (vis-à-vis ameliorating the rather serious problems America faces), his actions have indicated other intentions, ones quite opposed to his rhetoric.
As far as religion goes, I believe that the president is sufficiently ego-focused to make this question is moot. Any religious overtures he makes are, I believe, pure pretense.
As reported this week in WND, there has been an effort toward “normalization” of the president’s radical religious views as espoused by Rev. Jeremiah Wright. The president “officially” disavowed such dogma when he left Wright’s Trinity United Church during the 2008 campaign, but this was also a sham. I don’t have to elaborate on the impossibility of his having been ignorant of Wright’s radicalism (as he managed to convince the press and many Americans) to illustrate that he still holds to the same worldview.
The affinity between “Christian” radicals such as Wright and radical Muslims is a phenomenon that has puzzled observers for years. This is true in the case of Black Liberation theologians and the Nation of Islam (NOI) in particular. The relationship between Rev. Wright and other pastors who ascribe to Black Liberation Theology (BLT) and the Nation of Islam’s Louis Farrakhan, for example, remains perplexing because of the vast differences between Christianity and Islam. These obviously have been dramatically underscored during the last decade. As an aside, it bears mentioning that the Chicago branch of this religious-political network once included Barack Obama.
The truth is that the so-called faith of those such as Wright and Farrakhan remains a mere vehicle for the infusion of subversive doctrine into various groups and demographics.
As regards said doctrines: The philosophy to which both factions (those who follow BLT or NOI) adhere is actually far closer to that of the late Malcolm X. In the case of NOI, this certainly makes sense, since Malcolm was once a minister of the “Nation”; it was only after his pilgrimage to Mecca in 1964 that his toxic views of whites and America were moderated.
Yet, adherents to BLT and the Nation of Islam’s views continue to rail against America, whites, capitalism and Jews, maintaining that these continue to oppress blacks and destabilize their culture. In fact, the early rhetoric of Malcolm X and Jeremiah Wright’s ongoing condemnations are nearly indistinguishable from one another.
You and I, 22 million African-Americans – that’s what we are – Africans who are in America. You’re nothing but Africans.
– Malcolm X
We are an African people …
– Rev. Jeremiah Wright
Malcolm and Wright both maintained that American blacks were essentially Africans, though they are now as culturally as far removed from Africans as Norwegians are from Vikings. They both even employed the aphorism concerning chickens coming home to roost: Malcolm, when John F. Kennedy was shot, and Wright, after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the U.S.
This is the worldview in which President Obama operates, though he would certainly never admit it. His actions in the aggregate – and particularly over the last six months – bear this out very well. I speak specifically of his slights and insults to our Western allies and his direct empowerment of our Islamic enemies abroad, as well as domestic radical factions. His intercession into recent conflicts in the Middle East certainly affirm this; his dispatching of operatives to Egypt early in his presidency actually implicates him in the subsequent uprising there.
Anybody who rapes, and plunders, and enslaves, and steals, and drops hell bombs on people… anybody who does these things is nothing but a devil.
– Malcolm X interview, 1963, in reference to whites
This is quite reminiscent of several of Rev. Wright’s diatribes that were captured on video. Between his Marxist-infused Muslim background and 20 years in Wright’s church, of course it should be no surprise Obama has moved to compromise the United States economically, militarily, diplomatically and in terms of national security.
While Malcolm X was no saint, it is noteworthy that he renounced hate after his spiritual awakening. So, why is it, then, that men such as Farrakhan, Wright and Obama dedicatedly observe his earlier dogma and overlook the later? Because for them it is about power, nothing more, and hatred fuels their political machinery. To some extent, Malcolm woke up, but it is unlikely the others ever will.
