Obama’s Buddies Are Not Yours!

John McCain and Sarah Palin are getting flack from the mainstream media about bringing up Obama’s past association with known terrorists. In response liberals, like all schoolyard nerds, have resorted to the age old come back of, “You too!” by trying to tie McCain to a anti-communist group which he did serve on their board. However, to equate a group that was anti-communist to the same perverts who radically worked for the overthrow of America, bombed buildings, robbed banks, and murdered people is just plain ignorant and misleading. Some will harp that it is just a “distraction.” Well, you decide if it is after viewing the video at the end of this commentary.
Sadly too few people, especially those who were not alive during this time have no clue whatsoever who these terrorists, killers, and thugs were and what they truly believed and did. They were home-grown Communist funded radicals who wanted and sought a violent overthrow of the American government. They have not changed their view and are unrepentant of their violent involvement. They were and are not “heroes” or independent thinkers to be respected. They hated America and most still do. Obama has a history of being profoundly enamored with these kinds of ideals and people. From his associations as a child and young adolescent in Hawaii, through his college years at the leftist Columbia University, to the liberal classes he took in college, and even those he hung around with and worked with in his community “organizing.” Obama has a neo-communistic view of America. His own pastor of over 20 years preached a vitriolic venomous hatred of America. Obama has helped to funnel millions of dollars to radical community groups such as ACORN, who have been found guilty of voter fraud in several States, and that teach radical community activism written by his friend and confidant, known Weatherman terrorist, Bill Ayers. Either Obama is lying or is so ignorant as to be a dolt for not understanding the people he frequently calls his friends and associates.
Amanda Carpenter of TownHall.com writes that “a December 1997 article from the Chicago Tribune contains a statement from Obama describing Ayers’ book as ‘A searing and timely account of the juvenile court system, and the courageous individuals who rescue hope from despair.’ The book plainly recognizes Ayers’ involvement in terrorist acts.” Carpenter also notes that “Obama’s Campaign Manager David Axelrod told CNN on Monday that Obama did go to Ayers home in 1995 for an event that helped launch his political career but ‘he didn’t know the history’ about Ayers’ violent past, which included plans to bomb the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol as a founding member of the radical Weather Underground terrorist group, at the time.” WHAT? Can they seriously want us to believe this?
As Ed Morrissey writes for HotAir.com: “Ayers was hardly quiet about his life and his aspirations. He wrote a book about it in 2001. Chicago Magazine did a lengthy profile of him at the time, complete with pictures of Ayers standing on an American flag thrown on the ground in an alley. Nevertheless, Obama continued to work with Ayers at the Woods Fund and work together on public events. Either Obama liked what Ayers did, or he’s the most clueless politician to have ever reached the US Senate, and neither commends itself as a recommendation for a presidential candidate.”
Recently, it has also been disclosed by American Thinker that literally millions of dollars are unaccounted for by the Obama Campaign and are from foreigners. Many are radical Islamic and Communistic groups from nations who hate America. Ken Timmerman of NewsMax.com relates that “More than half of the whopping $426.9 million Barack Obama has raised has come from small donors whose names the Obama campaign won’t disclose…. And questions have arisen about millions more in foreign donations the Obama campaign has received that apparently have not been vetted as legitimate.” McCain has openly vetted and given out the names of those giving to his campaign, why not Obama?
Should this concern you as a voter? The answer is: “Yes.” If the same were held true for any other candidate you would be shocked, surprised, and angered. Do not allow your disgruntled attitude about the war in Iraq or the current Administration color your logical thought process. Most Americans do not like radical groups that espouse Communism. Obama does. Watch the video below and decide for yourself.
