The US Media (the so called “liberal media”) once again has been loyal to its masters and giving McCain a pass. 24 hour news channels and talk radio stations yet nothing of substance on any of them.
I truly pity the one whose sole news source is CNN or Fox (there’s a reason why they are called Fox – look it up in the dictionary).
Recently, the media made a circus running clips and sound bytes of Rev. Wright over and over again to try and portray him as a conspiracy nut and traitor so as to conjure up a phony scandal for Obama. Politics is dirty for sure. These video clips were probably brought out by someone from Clinton or McCain’s gang.
Rev. Wright defended himself and his positions very eloquently. Most of what he spoke was fact and I would agree with many of his positions despite being on opposite ends of the political spectrum.
I was saddened to see Obama stab him in the back – a la Brutus and denounce him. Maybe it was a good move politically – but whatever the Reverend said was not entirely incorrect or wrong. Ron Paul has ben saying this all along.
He was asked “Are you patriotic?”. He responded that he served 6 years in the military and that it was more military time than Dick Cheney served. Was this a false or insane statement?
Why was Obama “outraged”? He referred to US policies of sending troops to attack countries around the world. When asked why blame America for 9/11 – he replied that the “chickens have come home to roost” in the form of blowback from our policies overseas.
Most did not bother to find out that he was quoting Edward Peck, the former ambassador to Iraq, and deputy director of terrorism under Ronald Reagan.
Wright added, quoting the Bible’s golden rule, that you can not do terrorism to others and not have it come back to you.
Now McCain’s Pastor friend and who McCain calls “Spiritual Guide” calls for the destruction of the largest religion in the world and not a peep from the media? Click below link:
During a 2005 sermon, a fundamentalist pastor whom Senator John McCain has praised and campaigned with called Islam “the greatest religious enemy of our civilization and the world,” claiming that the historic mission of America is to see “this false religion destroyed.” In this taped sermon, currently sold by his megachurch, the Reverend Rod Parsley reiterates and amplifies harsh and derogatory comments about Islam he made in his book, Silent No More, published the same year he delivered these remarks. Meanwhile, McCain has stuck to his stance of not criticizing Parsley, an important political ally in a crucial swing state.
