Why Wright Needs Obama to Lose

In order for hucksters such as Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, Al Sharpton, and Jeremiah Wright to maintain their power and privilege, Barack Obama must not win the presidency. Now don't get me wrong; I'm not an Obama supporter. Still, facts are facts.

The aforementioned hate-mongers make a living getting people to buy into the phony idea that nothing has really changed in America. They portray America as a fundamentally racist institution, built on the backs of slaves. They see America only for the evils that some of her citizens have committed, and not for her kindness. They make money and stay on the news because (sadly) far too many people believe that a black man (or woman) has no real chance for success here.

This they preach despite the fact that none of them is personally impoverished, despite Oprah, despite Cosby, despite Clarence Thomas, despite Condoleeza Rice... indeed, despite the many thousands of other famous and successful African Americans respected by members of all ethnic groups. They will tell you that all of this is meaningless because we haven't yet elected a black man to the highest office in the land.

Now comes Barack Obama, ready to break this notion apart. What happens? His old pastor, Jeremiah Wright, rises to the surface like so much dross. Does he lie low? Nope. He makes a four day tour, appearing in front of a national audience. Does he attempt to sound more moderate? Of course not. In fact, he offers up even more juicy sound-bites to be played over and over on the airwaves. He accuses Obama of simply being a politician, of saying what he feels must be said to pacify the media.

What about Al Sharpton? He threatens a riot if the Democratic nomination doesn't go to Barack. Sure, this may seem like support, or at least Sharpton's version of it. In fact, however, Al Sharpton is slyly killing any chances Obama might have of winning the general election. Let's face it-- Al Sharpton knows precisely how most Americans feel about him. If he is able to get people to associate Barack Obama's candidacy with Sharpton-esque tactics and demagoguery, Obama will be through. We Americans staunchly refuse to be threatened into voting for anybody.

In my view, Barack Obama is being sabotaged. If he wins, what excuse can be used for the ills of the ghetto? It can't be racism. For the victim mentality to be preserved, Barack must go down.
