Selwyn Duke of American Thinker wrote a pretty dark article concerning Democratic Party front runner and liberal Barack Obama. Reading it nearly made my stomach turn. It's important to read because number one, we will be electing a new president this November and number two, too many Catholics have been swayed by his honey sweet rhetoric disguising this very bad man. [Selwyn's article is in black, my comments are in blue and emphasis as well] . . . In 2002, President Bush signed into law a bill titled the "Born Alive Infants Protection Act" (BAIPA). This law was necessary because, believe it or not, infants were being born alive during attempted abortions and then, ancient Spartan style, left to die. Jill Stanek wrote about this last year, saying:
"As a nurse at an Illinois hospital in 1999, I discovered babies were being aborted alive and shelved to die in soiled utility rooms. I discovered infanticide."The act was so vile that even staunch abortion advocates would not oppose BAIPA. Stanek tells us that it passed the Senate by unanimous vote, garnering the support of senators Kerry, Kennedy and Clinton [the liberal stalwarts of America voted for this, but not Obama]. She then pointed out:
"The bill also passed overwhelmingly in the House. NARAL went neutral on it. Abortion enthusiasts publicly agreed that fighting BAIPA would appear extreme."But the state version of BAIPA failed for years in Illinois. Any guesses as to why? Stanek goes on to explain:
I testified in 2001 and 2002 before a committee of which Obama was a member.Obama articulately worried that legislation protecting live aborted babies might infringe on women's rights or abortionists' rights. Obama's clinical discourse, his lack of mercy, shocked me. I was naive back then. Obama voted against the measure, twice. It ultimately failed. ['Obama's clinical discourse and lack of mercy' concerning babies that survived abortion attempts is very cold and calculating if you ask me. Sounds too much like a regular Josef Mengele.] There are his damnable associations. We know about William Ayers[Tony Rezko comes to mind also], the college professor and "education advisor" who, as a Weather Underground terrorist in the 1970s, planted bombs in a campaign against our government. You might point out that this was three decades ago, but know that Ayers is unrepentant and wishes that he had planted more bombs. Barack Obama launched his campaign for the state senate with a fundraiser at the house of Ayers and his fellow terrorist wife Bernadine Dohrn. . . . given Obama's cordial dealings with Ayers -- a man with whom many wouldn't break bread -- I'm left to wonder how much terrorism really bothers the senator on a visceral level. If his tolerance for the Weathermen is any indication, we have to ask: As president, would his zeal match that of our Islamist foes?[Obama has already stated publicly that he would meet with terrorists that both Bill Clinton & Bush wouldn't have met with] Then there is the now infamous Reverend Wright[sic], the man of the cloth poised to move into a 10,000 square ft. house with a 10-million-dollar line of credit. His bigoted, virulently anti-American bile has received enough press so that I don't have to provide a complete run-down, but this is a man who equated America with al-Qaeda, said we deserved 9/11, made anti-white statements, and called our nation "the US of KKKA.". . . Obama called Wright a friend, mentor and uncle; he had a 20-year relationship with him, during which time he attended Wright's church; he was married and had his child baptized by the reverend; and last year he donated $26,000 to the church. Yet some would give Obama credit for not casting his friend to the winds. After all, the interviewee said that he "cannot disown him." But my question is: Why, Mr. Obama, did you ever own him in the first place? So we again have to wonder about his emotional constitution, his heart[his lack of judgement]. Even if he doesn't share Wright's passion for the hate, he certainly was tolerant of it -- and I suspect sympathetic to it. And a man is known by the company he keeps. The woman he marries is some indication, too. Michelle Obama vigorously advocated partial-birth abortion (which is also infanticide) in 2004, and we all know about her notorious pronouncement: "For the first time in my adult life, I'm proud of my country." As for the comment, it has caused many to question her patriotism and apologists to counsel against rash judgment. Then we have Obama's moment of honesty in San Francisco. As a refresher, here is what he said:
"You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years . . . . And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."Many have labeled these comments elitist, and Obama has been trying to explain them away. But, again, the truth is plain. [The truth is plain to see. Barack Obama lacks a backbone to leave a bigoted pastor and the compassion for the most vulnerable in society.] . . . The truth about Obama is that he is not a good man. He is a bad man[that says it all right there]. [the following paragraph summarizes the entire article quite well]Good men don't turn a blind eye to unrepentant ex-terrorists; support vile, anti-American bigots; lie about their core beliefs; and look down on traditional Americans. Most significantly, good men don't allow beautiful babies -- the least among us -- to be discarded like refuse and die miserable, lonely deaths in dark utility rooms. In fact, if we cannot call Obama a bad man, there is no such thing as a bad man. And calling him a good man doesn't just strain credulity, it puts it in the hospital in traction. Ah, yes, hope, change, unity, infanticide, bigotry, terrorism, Obama . . . good? We all know what is wrong with this picture. There is an alternative and that is John McCain. Granted he doesn't stand up to what we as Catholics want in a candidate, but he certainly has everything we want (pro-life) in the character of a man and that is something that Obama has none of, in addition to many other things.
