America Awash In Nutjob Preachers

It's laughable how Republicans and even some bottom-feeding Demutantes are playing up Obama's former preacher Jeremiah Wright.

Anyone taking a "fair and balanced" look at the role of nutjob preachers in the circles of American power politics would conclude that these political vultures and the media that join them at the carcass are outright racists. You might be drawn to that conclusion when you notice that the only one who gets splashed on your TV screen or in political speeches is that black guy.

Meanwhile, as noted in, the right stays tight with far more dangerous religious extremists of its own:

"... it's not news that a viciously anti-American religious figure has invested billions of dollars in financing the U.S. conservative movement and put fat wads of cash into the pockets of many prominent Republicans, including members of President George W. Bush's own family.

While Sen. Obama has to explain what he knew and when he knew it about Wright's angry sermons, the Bush Family floats above its financial and political associations with the Rev. Sun Myung Moon, a South Korean theocrat who had denounced the United States as "Satan's harvest" and likened American women to "prostitutes."

In his angry sermons, Moon has gone further than saying "God-damn America" - as Wright did - to vowing to sweep aside American democracy and individualism as he builds a one-world state.

Once his plan to "swallow entire America" is complete, Moon told his followers in one sermon, there will be "some individuals who complain inside your stomach. However, they will be digested."

But Moon's hatred of America is not deemed news, in part, because Moon has financed the Washington Times since 1982 to the tune of more than $3 billion, according to former newspaper insider George Archibald.

Moon also has lavished many millions of dollars more to pay for conservative conferences and to bail out key right-wing figures when they have found themselves in financial distress, including Republican direct-mail guru Richard Viguerie and the late Jerry Falwell."

The ConsortiumNews account is pretty revealing:

I have absolutely no idea what that means

Aww, come on Mound, isn't it obvious? The right wing is never wrong about these sorts of things. Who's going to pay attention if someone promotes the hatred of minorities? Or speaks out against democracy? That is so yesterday! But if someone says something against the majority, now that has political capital! And of course, because he's Obama's pastor, that means Obama may as well have said it himself (even though he condemned the remarks in no uncertain terms).

Really Mound, you should be more trusting! After all, remember that it was this very kind of thinking that warned Americans about the undisputable certainty that JFK would be taking orders directly from the Vatican!

(In case there are any dim bulbs out there reading this, I am being REALLY sarcastic!)

Fishman, be careful whose mitre you're poking holes in. Are you suggesting the Pope had JFK whacked for refusing orders? Wait'll Pope Bennie hears what you're saying about his firm! Jesus Fish, you're at a Catholic university... run... hide.
