I'm not racist, I hate his white half too!
By A.J. Castellitto

Back in 2009, a majority of white America was fully behind the president. There was much fanfare and enthusiasm as he assumed his place in the Oval Office. The New York Times proclaimed that Obama's victory had swept "away the last racial barrier in American politics."

Despite America's willingness to overcome the racial divide once and for all, the discouraging truth is that this president relies on chaos and instability. How else can he fulfill his "Dreams From My Father" here in America?

Obama was partially raised and mentored by Frank Marshall Davis, a writer and poet whose devotion to Communism was matched only by his hatred for whites.

Does our president secretly loathe those people who enthusiastically embraced him? Is the "race card" now the ultimate "trump card" for men like Obama?

Based on a few of the passages from his aforementioned autobiography, it appears that Obama may have a few unresolved issues related to race, equality, social restoration, and our rule of law:

"I ceased to advertise my mother's race at the age of twelve or thirteen, when I began to suspect I was ingratiating myself to whites."

"The emotions between the races could never be pure; even love was tarnished by the desire to find in the other some element that was missing in ourselves. Whether we sought out our demons or salvation, the other race would always remain just that: menacing, alien, and apart."

"That's just how white folks will do you....It was a particular brand of arrogance, an obtuseness in otherwise sane people that brought forth our bitter laughter. "

"...anger's a requirement for the job. The only reason anybody decides to become an organizer. Well adjusted people find more relaxing work."

"In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging....I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."

"But you see, a rich country like America can perhaps afford to be stupid."

I'm not reading any true love or regard for America (at least in a historical/traditional sense) in any of these quotes! But this is his perception of America. Based on what we've seen, it's not surprising.

It is no wonder he's been leading a movement to level the playing field.

How vicious is his intent? To what degree may he "race-bait" and "falsely accuse" to achieve his goals?

How many (regardless of race, color, or creed) will actually benefit from his agenda? Does he truly represent any race? Or is he merely doing the bidding of those who harbor a general animosity of America?

When Democratic Congressman Alan Grayson used the "divide and conquer" propaganda tactic to unjustly vilify the Tea Party, Allen West rightly exposed the hypocrisy (exhibited by a party that desperately relies on social division, class warfare, racial tension, rigid categorization, and perceived prejudice as key propaganda tools to manipulate and monopolize voting blocs). Eventually, people of all backgrounds and ethnicities will wake up and realize they are worse off. They traded their votes for cheap promises and faux sincerity.

A once proud and hopeful nation, America has become fractured and frustrated. We are a people mired in doubt and uncertainty. Our security, protection, and representation has been unjustly exchanged for a radical new world devoid of true tolerance or individuality.

Fear and paranoia now reigns, as the shared values that enabled America to become a great melting pot of culture and diversity have been discarded. A climate of suspicion and mistrust has emerged as subtle seeds of cultural tension and civil unrest continue to bring America to the brink.

As a Christian, I do not "hate" President Obama. Nobody on this side of the grave is beyond redemption. Pastor John Newton (writer of the classic hymn "Amazing Grace") was a ruthless slave trader prior to his spiritual conversion and subsequent role in the successful abolitionist campaign to end slavery in England.

But a true restoration requires a lethal dose of supernatural justice. I say, bring it on!
