Why is Barack Obama so comfortable around people who so despise America and its allies?


Andrew McCarthy, Editor, NRO:
Maybe it's because they're so comfortable around him.

He presents as the transcendent agent of "change." Sounds platitudinous, but it's really quite strategically vaporous. Sen. Obama is loath to get into the details of how we should change, and, as the media's Chosen One, he hasn't had to.
SNIP...
MICHELLE

Her college thesis, which Princeton tried to keep under lock and key, testifies to a race-obsessed worldview. She may have refined it, but she's never grown out of it.
THE REV. WRIGHT
Years earlier, the Obamas had gravitated to the baleful Rev. Jeremiah Wright, an unapologetic racist and hard Left firebrand. They were comfortable with him -- and he with them.

By the senator's own account, Wright is the inspiration for his memoir, The Audacity of Hope -- the title is cribbed from a Wright sermon ("The Audacity to Hope"). For Michelle, who had written that a racial "separationist" would have a better understanding of American blacks than "an integrationist who is ignorant to their plight," Wright's Trinity Church mission statement had to resonate, right from its opening declaration:
We are a congregation which is Unashamedly Black and Unapologetically Christian... Our roots in the Black religious experience and tradition are deep, lasting and permanent. We are an African people, and remain 'true to our native land,' the mother continent, the cradle of civilization....
and on the mentor of Wright, James Cone, as suggested reading to Sean Hannity by Wright we find this:
there is Cone's 1969 opus, Black Theology and Black Power, in which he helpfully explains: Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him. SNIP

BILL AYERS AND BERNADINE DOHRN
With this as background, is it really all that startling that Sen. Obama enjoys a friendly relationship with Bill Ayers and his wife, Bernadine Dohrn, a pair of terrorists?
I want to be clear here: Not terrorist sympathizers. Terrorists.

The mainstream media, in their zeal to elect a Democrat, are assiduously airbrushing Ayers: "an aging lefty with a foolish past," as the Chicago Sun-Times has so delicately put it. In fact, it is the press that is rife with foolish, aging lefties. Ayers, by contrast, is an unapologetic terrorist with a savage past -- one who beat the system he so reviles when, after his years of fugitivity, terrorism charges were dropped due to government surveillance violations. He's "guilty as sin," by his own concession, but "free as a bird."

Ayers didn't just carry a sign outside the Pentagon on May 19, 1972. He bombed it. As his memoir gleefully recalled, "Everything was absolutely ideal on the day I bombed the Pentagon. The sky was blue. The birds were singing. And the bastards were finally going to get what was coming to them."

It was at the Chicago home of Ayers and Dohrn that Obama, then an up-and-coming "community organizer," had his political coming out party in 1995. Not content with this rite of passage in Lefty World -- where unrepentant terrorists are regarded as progressive luminaries, still working "only to educate" -- both Obamas tended to the relationship with the Ayers.

Barack Obama made a joint appearance with Bill Ayers in 1997 at a University of Chicago panel on the outrage of treating juvenile criminals as if they were, well, criminals. Obama apologists say, "So what? People appear with other people all the time." Nice try. This panel was orchestrated by none other than Michelle Obama, then an Associate Dean of Student Services. Ayers didn't happen to be there -- he was invited by the Obamas to educate students on the question before the house: "Should a Child Ever Be Called a 'Super Predator?'"
Want to know WHAT Bill Ayers is? Look here and note the date. What does Barry REALLY feel?
SNIP
RASHID KHALIDI
rashid_khalidi.jpg In the interim, Ayers and Obama had teamed up for three years on the board of the Woods Fund, a Chicago charitable organization. Together, they voted to donate $75,000 of the largesse they controlled to the Arab American Action Network. The AAAN was co-founded by Rashid Khalidi, a longtime supporter of Palestinian "resistance" attacks against Israel, which he openly regards as a racist, apartheid state. Despite considerable evidence to the contrary, Khalidi peremptorily denies having been a PLO operative or having directed its official press agency for six years (from 1976 to 1982). There can be no gainsaying, though, that he was an influential apologist for Yasser Arafat, the terror master who spawned two Intifadas and ordered the murder of American diplomats.

In the mean, besotted United States, of course, being a terrorist, a terror apologist, or simply raging at the machine qualifies one for a cushy academic soapbox. Thus did Khalidi eventually land on his feet at the University of Chicago, where he ran in the same circles as Associate Dean Michelle Obama, Law Professor Barack Obama, University of Illinois-Chicago Education Professor Bill Ayers, and Northwestern Law Professor Bernadine Dohrn (who prepared for a career in instructing future officers of the court with a stint in federal prison for flouting a judge's order that she testify in a grand jury investigation into the Weathermen's infamous Brinks robbery-murders).
SNIP.

Ayers is virtually channeling Michelle Obama and Jeremiah Wright when he wails that American "society is not a just and fair and decent place."

"God, what a great country," he scoffed to the Times. "It makes me want to puke."

Hey, right back at you there, Professor. At least that's how most of us are likely to feel. But not Sen. Obama. And that's why Ayers -- like Khalidi and Wright and Michelle Obama, and others who know the senator well while we've been told precious little -- sees in Barack Obama the change he's been waiting for.

Forgive my ignorance.....who are "her Allies"?

I buy cigarettes from an Arab merchant just about every day. Because this person accepts my money..does that make him my "Ally"?

Britain and Israel.

Israel is full of Jews. Jews are offensive to the RoP.....so they don't count.

Britain is America's only "Ally".

As this article shows, you can't set Obama apart from his past and his associates as so many are trying to do. It is frustrating to hear, so often, some variant on how Obama can't be held responsible for comments by Wright, Lee, Michelle, endorsements from the NOI and Black Panthers, Marxist mentors, dormant terrorist buddies like the Ayers, because Obama is the Messiah who brings Hope and Change and he's really a good man read his books he's much more reassonable yada yada yada. And oh yeah at least he isn't Bushitler.

Nobody has the excuse any more that they "haven't heard" about all this from the MSM because enough of it has leaked through the cracks there that there is no valid plea of ignorance, only evasion. He is is Wolf in Sheep's Clothing par exelence, a walking study in taqiya. I'd love to know how he develped his political technique and under the tutelage of whom, but we don't have time for that because the bum is probably going to be nominated and he must be defeated. There is no "well, after 4 years of him people will throw the Dems out and elect another Reagan" because we won't have 4 years.

Sorry Epa, I was referring to the title " Why is Barack Obama so comfortable around people who so despise America and its allies?'

Let's just agree that any enemy of America is a welcome guest in the Hussein Obama household.

......and the Whitehouse!

I'm not sure how BHO got the title of Messiah.

That's not the title I would give him.

Ye, Michael, he is only too ready to understand those who understand us so perfectly they know how to appeal to our greatest weakness, our anthropocentric egotistical immensely arrogant western compulsion to project our need to be reasonable onto others who have no such need.

He, in this regard, is a dangerously naive fool.

Christine, c'mon, he offers hope where is little, so that the fools can do the Ghost Dance, but he offers the chance at NO UNPLEASANTNESS. We can all go back to the big sunday barbecue that is america.

On the other hand, no one thought Winnie a messiah.

If this man IS elected as seems just barely probable RIGHT NOW (long way to go), we will all have to guard against becoming the mirror image of Harry Reid, wishing failure on the president (and therefore America) because he engenders such revulsion among us.

His hope of NO UNPLEASANTNESS is a pie in the sky dream of those who have none.

I see nothing but nightmares coming, if he is elected.

Obama will beat Hillary and that is a perfect scenario. Surely there is no way that Obama can beat McCain.

If America loses the plot and votes Obama for president, then the country will surely split. One side will make a siege at the station, waiting for the train to take them to Allah, whilst the other side will fight another revolution.

Read the book of Prophet Jeremiah in the Bible. Read the words of Isaiah in the Old Testament. No one condemned the nation of Israel more than these two people. They spoke of the destruction of Israel and Jerusalem for her sins and were written of as "Israel haters" by the people of their day. But the truth is that it happened! These were prophets speaking in the prophetic! So was Jeremiah Wright! He was speaking in the prophetic. I tell you the truth, you Americans are so arrogant in your superpower status. Like Babylon you will fall down because of the mass consumption, lasciviousness and homosexuality that is destroying families. Look at Sodom and Gomorrah and tell me if America is any different. Look at Babylon and tell me if America is any different. The 'Girls Went Wild' in Noah's day and a flood destroyed the entire nation! No Empire will ever rise above the Church of Jesus Christ! Rome fell. Syria fell. Russia fell. The British Empire fell. America will fall! It's already beginning to fall with the collapse of Wall Street, Housing markets, etc. Your day of reckoning is coming! Trust what the spirit says through prophets like Jeremiah Wright. Remember, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Amos, Obadiah and many other Old Testament prophets condemned their own countries and many of them were written off but their words continue to live on. You do not belive this but you and your descendants will see it with your own eyes!

Anonymous, people have been predicting the end of america since John Adams was president.

GET OVER IT, MORON.

Quoting the bible as a predictor of events is utter bullshit. The Bible is NOT the word of God. Your Faith is belief in the suspension of proof.

I could EASILY point to any society on earth now, OR in the past and make a strong case they are Sodom and Gomorrah, that's about humans, not nations.

What I see with my own eyes is a world wide religious war, with people like you part of the cause.

UGH !

That interview you linked to with Bill Ayres on 9-16-01 is worth a thread of its own.

That is amazing.

I have a friend like that, who is just that paranoid. He will slam the phone down in the middle of conversations, or start yelling at the government who he believes is hunting him down.

The truth is, the government ought to have been hunting him down at one point, but they weren't.

And, that is likely true of Mr. Ayres as well.
