The Trinity of Hell

I can't figure out whether this "pastor" is trying to be funny or whether he is just an idiot. But I can't help thinking that if this man had been John McCain's pastor for 20 years, McCain's campaign would be over, no matter how hard he tried to distance himself. Jeremiah Wright's statements are no less inflamatory, but Democrats keep defending Obama!

What does this lunatic have to do with anything? You're really grasping now, and I think even you know it. Are you going to just post videos of as many deranged "ministers" as you can and try to find some connection to Obama with each one of them?

Bad news for you: more people are worried about McSame's connections to Bush than Obama's connections to Wright. More bad news: the Republicans are in such bad shape they can't even win a special election for a congressional seat in Mississippi in a district that voted for Bush by 25 points (and that's not the only recent case of this happening). More bad news: even Newt Gringrich has realized that "Without change, we could face a catastrophic election this fall. Without change, the Republican Party in the House could revert to the permanent minority status it had from 1930 to 1994." More bad news: even the National Republican Congressional Committee chairman has realized "Voters remain pessimistic about the direction of the country and the Republican Party in general." More bad news: even a Republican congressman has admitted "The House Republican brand is so bad right now that if it were a dog food, they'd take it off the shelf." And finally, Newt Gringrich also realized that "The Republican brand has been so badly damaged that if Republicans try to run an anti-Obama, anti-Reverend Wright, or [if Senator Hillary Clinton wins] anti-Clinton campaign, they are simply going to fail." Maybe that's why the GOP has resorted to stealing a marketing slogan from an anti-depressant drug. (Seriously, they have. I wish I could make stuff like that up.)

So keep posting your videos and innuendo. But the American people don't like your party or the direction it has taken us in the last 7+ years. And John W. McBush has promised more of the same.

Brent,

And all of your spinning, side-stepping and smoke-blowing cannot keep the intelligent reader from realizing that the point I made is absolutely true!

The Jeremiah Wright thing is a BIG deal even if Democrats don't want to acknowledge it.

If it is somehow OK for Jeremiah Wright to be racist against one group of people (white people), then who's to say that it was wrong for some of our forefathers to be racist against one group of people (black people)?

Anyone who thinks they can pick and choose when racism is acceptable or not, is a racist.

Anyone who voluntarily remains in, and financially supports, a racist organization for 20 years, should not be President of the United States (unless, perhaps, it had been many years since they belonged and have sincerly repented--but that is not Obama's case).

You're right, if John McCain had been part of a White Supremacist church, he probably would not be the nominee. Both white and black people would have called for him to concede. Weird that both white and black people don't really care about Rev. Wright and keep voting for Obama though, huh? And that's including Republicans.

Maybe it's because The United Church of Christ is not a black supremacist denomination, and Rev. Wright isn't a black supremacist.

Of course, you'll disagree.

I sincerely hope the I.R.S. is aware of this guy's "ramblings". If so, a certain pastor's church may be, at the very least, risking loss of its tax exempt status. I also wonder if at least two of the three named by this expositor of incalcuble wisdom could consider suing for defamation of character? But then, I guess, this upstanding man of God could always plead temporary insanity.

An intelligent reader (and even an un-intelligent one) will see that the lunatic in the video you posted has absolutely nothing to do with anything! If you insist on discussing Wright until November, at least post something relevant to that topic. Don't just find another wacky preacher and try to connect him somehow. It's insulting to us as readers and demeaning to yourself.

And nothing that I wrote was spinning, side-stepping or smoke-blowing. It's all fact, as sad as it is for you.

Dennis said...

Brent, since you seem to be having trouble understanding this, let me try to spell it out for you again.

The statements made by Jeremiah Wright are even more inflamatory than the statements made by the guy on YouTube.

There can be no serious doubt that if John McCain had remained in, and financially supported someone like this YouTube pastor for even 20 months, his campaign would be over before it bagan!

The story would be all over every news outlet in the country....for weeks on end! The Left would (rightfully for once) be frothing at the mouth and going into convlusions over it!

But it wouldn't just be the Democrats who would condemn it. The Republicans would also condemn such a pastor and would run McCain out on a rail!

On the other hand, there is Jeremiah Wright who makes even MORE inflamatory statements than the YouTube pastor, yet it doesn't matter to the Left that Obama remained in Wright's church and financially supported Wright's ministry for t-w-e-n-t-y years!!!

If the Left's hypocrisy and double-standard is so enormous, if it were a hole, the entire state of California would fit comfortable therein!

Brent said...

You're right, I am genuinely confused by your logic here. You are an intelligent (if misguided in my opinion) person, and I usually at least understand where you're coming from. Does that mean you can find any loony pastor, post his video, and draw analogies to the Wright/Obama situation for months to come? I realize you have a problem with Wright, but at least stick to the things the man has actually said. Isn't there enough material there if you want to continue flogging this horse?

Dennis said...

Brent,

I happen to think racism is a big deal so I will keep flogging this horse right up until the election, thankyouverymuch.

And while we're at it, I also think it is a big deal when government tries to force religous organizations to accept behaviors that we believe are immoral, so I'll keep beating that horse too.

I also think it is a big deal when people are allowed the "freedom" to kill their babies before they are born, so I'll keep hammering on that one too.

And given the government's track record on Hurricane Katrina, the war, Medicare, Social Security, I just tend to disagree with Obama that increased government intervention and regulation(and higher taxation) is the solution to all our problems so I will keep opposing his socialism too.

Barack Obama will be an absolute disaster for America so I will keep on opposing him right up until the election :-)

Brent said...

You're being difficult on purpose now. I don't expect you to stop opposing things you disagree with, I read what you have to say for that reason, to see another side. I just ask that you be honest with what you say and stick to relevant facts. This video was not relevant to anything.

Dennis said, at least once,:"I will keep flogging this horse right up until the election"
Dennis, if you insist on continuing with this I will have to report you to PETA :-)

Dennis said...

professor ed,

Speaking of PETA: Have you ever noticed that they throw paint on women wearing fir but never on Hell's Angels wearing leather?

I'm not in the Hell's Angels but I'm pretty big. If I'm lucky, maybe they won't mess with me :-)
