The Objectively Unfit Barack Obama

The people who don’t like me calling the sole remaining viable male Democratic candidate BOOHOO (Barack O-bomba Overseas HusseinObambi” Obama) aren’t going to like these two things very much. Oh well.

But in the interest of, y’know, puttin’ it out there, here goes.

First, Reuven Koret at Israel Insider, which appears to be a mainstream publication, asked this question almost two weeks ago (i.e., I didn’t): “Is Barack Obama a Muslim wolf in Christian wool?” Koret notes not-minor discrepancies between the Obama campaign’s denials and the historical record.

This second item is (I hope) a second- or third-degree-removed thing, but somehow I doubt that it is irrelevant.

(Warning: The video you will see if you follow the link contains large doses of profanity and extremely disturbing language. Again, this isn’t my work, but there’s no reason to think it’s not legit.)

Now that you’ve been warned; here’s the link to “Khalid Abdul Muhammad Speaks on the Devil.” Just when you think it can’t get worse, it does.

The close association between the beyond-redemption (barring a last-minute reconciliation with our Maker) hateful Muhammad and Louis Farrakhan appears to be a matter of historical fact, as does the close association between Farrakhan and the Reverend Jeremiah A. Wright of the Trinity United Church of Christ (TUCC) in Chicago, which gave Farrakhan an award because he has supposedly “truly epitomized greatness.” Muhammad founded the New Black Panther Party. Incredibly, the New Black Panthers had some degree of visibility on Obama’s campaign web site(s) until several weeks ago.

According to Wiki, “Muhammad is still venerated by members of the New Black Panther Party and seen as the de facto father of the movement.”

Muhammad also “accompanied Farrakhan on fund-raising trips to Libya.” So did the Rev. Wright on at least one occasion, “which was then illegal under U.S. law.”

I would guess that there’s more than a slight chance that someone can place the Rev. Wright in attendance at one of Muhammad’s hatefests — perhaps even after Barack Obama joined TUCC.

I’m sorry, but because of Wright, and Obama’s steadfast refusal to repudiate him and TUCC, the candidate is wayyyy too close to the Muhammad-Farrakhan poison for comfort.

I’ve waited for a month for something, anything to come from Barack Obama’s mouth, or his campaign, that might enable me to avoid what is now an inescapable (but not necessarily immutable) conclusion. The odds that it’s coming are ridiculously long, and as much as it doesn’t seem possible, the news about Wright’s and Obama’s associations could actually get even worse.

A person who is without the judgment to run away from this garbage (and the breathtaking financial hypocrisy; Farrakhan’s too) as fast as he (and his family!) can, but instead hangs around for 20 years (just stop it already with the plausible deniability arguments), is … (here we go) … objectively unfit for the nation’s highest office and all that holding it entails.

I’m not saying that this “objective unfit” evaluation can’t be turned around, but I’m at a loss to see how Obama can make it happen, or to imagine that he has the will to do so.

Update: Infidels Are Cool (HT LGF) thinks this is news, and I guess to the general populace he’s probably right. It’s from the same New Republic piece I referred to when noting that when Obama was seen taking notes during a Wright sermon, he was likely doing so in the appropriate area of the church bulletins — the ones he said he never read.

IAC’s “news” is that, according to that New Republic article, Wright is a former Nation of Islam-style Muslim.

Update 2, 6 PM: Debbie Schlussel, from January 30 — “Obama’s Nation of Islam Staffers.” And more.
