Interesting post over at FrontPageMag daring to flick on the light at some things that really get on many American nerves. I can’t think of any tribe of people on this earth that have not experienced some kind of slavery or persecution in their past, present, or future. Sadly, humanity seems to be riddled with it. I’m not going to go into all the complexities of this but at some time, nations need to stop perpetuating the guilt and “you owe me” stuff. Some of the most crippling legislations, at least in this country, are the ones that single out certain groups for special privileges.
The founding members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are one group of Americans that were victimized abhorrently. No special considerations were ever have been given them. In fact, if anything, this group continues to endure, even thrive, despite much blatant bigotry in this nation.
How much of Obama’s success is because of Affirmative Action? Sean Hannity, last week, played an amazing campaign ad for a candidate running for office in the South – Florida, I believe. The outrageous plea to Blacks to vote for a Democrat because they were the only ones to ensure the continuance of welfare, Medicaid, etc was appalling. I find the premises Obama’s Chicago church are founded on are disgusting. See my post on Barack Obama’s Racist Church to see more on this. I have also been listening as these other people call in to Sean Hannity’s show attempt to “defend” the policies behind the “Black Value System”. I appreciate that Sean Hannity has the guts to ask hard questions to these people.
So here it is, another brave move to wake up America by Joseph Puder. The post is titled, “The First Affirmative Action Candidate.”
Shelby Steele, an African-American research fellow at Stanford University Hoover Institute and author of White Guilt: How Blacks and Whites Together Destroyed the Promise of the Civil Rights Era pointed out that, “By the mid-sixties White Guilt was eliciting an entirely new kind of Black leadership, not selfless men like Martin Luther King who appealed to the nation’s moral character but smaller men, bargainers, bluffers, and haranguers – not moralists but specialists in moral indignation – who would set up a trade with White Guilt.”
Barack Hussein Obama is different from previous African-American presidential contenders – he understands that the key to the U.S. presidency and power is making deals with the White-American establishment. Unlike Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, characterized by Shelby Steele as “bluffers and haranguers,” and, one might add, extortionists who trade in White guilt for personal gain, Obama is more of a “bargainer.” His appeal to White America is that he is not overtly trading on White guilt but at the same time he and his aides know that White America seeks moral legitimacy, and his bargain is in promising to provide such legitimacy in exchange for power. It is far more sophisticated a bargain than previous Black leaders have had with White America.
To the adoring eyes of the liberal mass media, Obama is the closest expression of a rock star, if not a “black messiah.” While every white candidate is scrutinized and criticized, Obama remains “beyond criticism.” Had any white candidate, with less than three years experience in the national arena declared himself a candidate for the presidency, especially at the tender age of 46, he/she would have been ridiculed. The media’s collective white guilt with its derivative of “political correctness,” does not seek articulation on policy or substance from Obama. It does not demand answers as to how he would tackle Iran’s terrorist aggression and nuclear pursuits, or ideas on how to grow the U.S. economy? His generalized “vision” is sufficient for the liberal media. The white liberal media would love a black president in order to end the perceived stigma of white institutional racism – a way to cleanse the soul and regain moral legitimacy.
There is little difference between the rhetoric of Obama and the white candidates. They all speak of hope and change. Why should Obama’s words be more believable, legitimate or acceptable? The answer is white guilt…
In the final analysis one must ask the simple question: In a color-blind society, devoid of white guilt, does an inexperienced, untried, albeit bright contender like Obama, deserve to be president in contrast to Hillary Clinton, John McCain, Mitt Romney, and Rudi Giuliani – candidates who are equally as bright and have far greater experience? To vote on any other basis would be racist.

As many in the conservative field have commented if this were about Colin Powell, Condalizza Rice, or Justice Clarence Thomas we would be having an entirely different conversation. This is about a man that supports the genocide of a disproportionate amount of people of his own ethnicity – which is staggering. (Statistically Blacks seek out abortion over whites.)
• Nearly half of pregnancies among American women are unintended, and four in 10 of these are terminated by abortion. Twenty-two percent of all pregnancies (excluding miscarriages) end in abortion.
So it does look like this candidate is under the microscope, and I wouldn’t expect any less. This year the people of the United States are doing everything they can to scrutinize every candidate for the most important office in the nation, the President of the United States.
