Obama Damns America With "Original Sin" of Slavery
“Two hundred and twenty one years ago, in a hall that still stands across the street, a group of men gathered and, with these simple words, launched America’s improbable experiment in democracy. Farmers and scholars; statesmen and patriots who had traveled across an ocean to escape tyranny and persecution finally made real their declaration of independence at a Philadelphia convention that lasted through the spring of 1787.
The document they produced was eventually signed but ultimately unfinished. It was stained by this nation’s original sin of slavery…“
Senator Barack Obama
A More Perfect Union Speech
In Response to the filth of his minister the Rev. Jeremiah Wright
March 18, 2008
Regardless of this nation’s glorious history
Regardless of the fact that America was one of the first nations to outlaw slavery
Regardless of the fact that hundreds of thousands of Americans fought in a war to rid this nation of slavery
Regardless of the millions of people this country set free from tyranny
Regardless of the 50 million Iraqis and Afghans this country set free
You as an American– Are born with the “stain” of slavery.
You have a hereditary stain with which you are born with on account of this nation’s origin sin of slavery.
Commenter pst314 caught this from Barack’s speech today:
Original sin? In other words, all white Americans are born sinful. If we suffer from original sin, then we are guilty no matter how virtuously we behave.
Furthermore, original sin can only be cleansed by divine grace. And who is the pastor who is offered to us as a holy intermediary to dispense this divine forgiveness? The hate-spewing Wright and others like him.
Yes, there is an implied promise that whites can buy forgiveness by publicly flagellating and abasing ourselves and by supporting in toto Obama’s political agenda of socialism and racial reparations. But that is a false promise: Nothing whites can do will buy forgiveness, because Wright and Obama and his allies have no intention of ever letting them off the hook. Racial guilt is far too convenient, both to intimidate and extort from whites, and to manipulate blacks through endless whipping up of resentment and hate.
This line puts Obama in sync with his wife Michelle.
It shows his true beliefs…
That America is a flawed nation and has been since its birth.
No thanks, Barack.
I’d like to think of myself as more evolved than that.
UPDATE: Bad news Barack– 30% of voters said Wright’s comments made them feel very negative about Obama.
UPDATE 2: Astute Bloggers noticed he mentioned his white grandparents who raised him twice- once to dis them.
UPDATE 3: Protein Wisdom has found the cure for this awful stain of slavery!
UPDATE 4: Roger Simon is moved to poetry.
