Obama Campaign Site on the “Powerful Jewish Lobby”
Obama campaign sanctioned blog entry: Lynching, genocide, and slavery are evangelical Christian values
by Bill Levinson
The following is currently (as of July 1 2008) online at my.barackobama.com, having been posted in November 2007: more than half a year ago. In contrast, the Obama campaign was quite capable of finding and removing our blog that contained anti-Obama factual material within 36 hours. The latter establishes “exercise of editorial control” and value judgments as to what can be posted at my.barackobama.com. The following was therefore sanctioned by Barack Obama’s official campaign.
Those members of congress who are Jewish, will never vote against any resolution that might be detrimental to the state of Israel. They will pass only legislation that continues to supply Israel with US money and military aid, even if that aid ends up killing Palestinians and bulldozing Palestinian homes. Historically the Jewish community in the U.S. has voted Democrat, and expressed very liberal views. These progressive ideals have aided greatly in our passing needed legislation that has been beneficial to American citizens. However, when it comes to our foreign policy toward Israel, the powerful Jewish lobby raised very little objection to the spying on the U.S. by Jonathan Pollard, nor the attack on the USS Liberty.
In addition, the writer says that lynching, genocide, and slavery are evangelical Christian values
Those members of congress who are Christian, have voted more towards the right wing of the Republican Party, and have indicated extremist ideas that are detrimental to our remaining a secular society united by common “American” beliefs and values. Instead, they have become very divisive rather than uniting and have contributed to the vehement rhetoric that seems to pervade our public discourse. They would rather pander to those evangelicals that have taken up the mantle of representing “true” American values. However, those same values allowed Christian Cavalrymen to massacre Native Americans, slavery, and the lynching of African Americans by white Christian mobs in the Jim Crow South of the 20th Century.
