Why do blacks support Obama?

It’s the issues silly.

  1. Why do blacks support Obama? Because he’s black

  2. Pardon me… but not all of us believe the hype (myself included).

    ROBERT OLIVER COMMENTARY: Why I Cannot Vote For Obama The Southern California conservative writer, photographer, and radio commentator emailed this op-ed to Booker Rising:

    Yes I’m a Black man, and I won’t vote for Barack Obama for President of the United States.

    Today I saw an editorial cartoon that was originally published in the Chicago Sun-Times. It had God, Senator Obama, and a baby. God was touching the baby’s forefinger. Obama stands behind the baby and holds a sign that says “LIVE BIRTH ABORTION.” Obama screams at God: YOU KEEP OUT OF THIS!” Suddenly everything made sense to me, maybe not by words to God, but by actions — actions which speak much louder than words. By his actions Obama says a lot, both to God and to Christians.

    In a Human Events article, “Obama More Pro-Choice Than NARAL”, Amanda B. Carpenter writes:

    “In 2002, as an Illinois legislator, Obama voted against the Induced Infant Liability Act, which would have protected babies that survived late-term abortions. That same year a similar federal law, the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, was signed by President Bush. Only 15 members of the U.S. House opposed it, and it passed the Senate unanimously on a voice vote…When the federal bill was being debated, NARAL Pro-Choice America released a statement that said, ‘Consistent with our position last year, NARAL does not oppose passage of the Born Alive Infants Protection Act … floor debate served to clarify the bill’s intent and assure us that it is not targeted at Roe v. Wade or a woman’s right to choose.’ But Obama voted against this bill in the Illinois senate and killed it in committee. Twice, the Induced Infant Liability Act came up in the Judiciary Committee on which he served. At its first reading he voted ‘present.’ At the second he voted ‘no….’ Jill Stanek, a registered delivery-ward nurse who was the prime mover behind the legislation after she witnessed aborted babies’ being born alive and left to die, testified twice before Obama in support of the Induced Infant Liability Act bills. She also testified before the U.S. Congress in support of the Born Alive Infant Protection Act. Stanek told me her testimony ‘did not faze’ Obama. In the second hearing, Stanek said, ‘I brought pictures in and presented them to the committee of very premature babies from my neonatal resuscitation book from the American Pediatric Association, trying to show them unwanted babies were being cast aside. Babies the same age were being treated if they were wanted!’ And those pictures didn’t faze him [Obama] at all,’ she said.”

    This man who wants to be President of the United States would allow survivors of botched abortions to die when they could have been given life support. That is cold and heartless, isn’t it? I ask Christians, is that the attitude that God is pleased with? Can God smile on that? Proverbs 31:8 says: “Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction.” I would say that describes those babies left to die, those babies that Obama would allow to die. One woman said that God brought Obama this far not to let him down. Do you seriously think God anointed and appointed such a man like that with a heart and a character to let those deaths of infants continue? There is a word for it – infanticide.

    Can God bless infanticide? Does God bless infanticide? Is it “Suffer the little children” or “Let the little children suffer”? Which one did Jesus Christ say? I forget. Help me out with that one.

    The article “Obama’s Abortion Extremism” in the April 2, 2008 edition of the Washington Post says: “But Obama’s record on abortion is extreme. He opposed the ban on partial-birth abortion — a practice a fellow Democrat, the late Daniel Patrick Moynihan, once called ‘too close to infanticide.’ Obama strongly criticized the Supreme Court decision upholding the partial-birth ban. In the Illinois state Senate, he opposed a bill similar to the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, which prevents the killing of infants mistakenly left alive by abortion. And now Obama has oddly claimed that he would not want his daughters to be ‘punished with a baby’ because of a crisis pregnancy — hardly a welcoming attitude toward new life.”

    It really boggles my mind that people who say they are Christians will vote for him. It is bad enough that Obama is “pro-choice,” which is a euphemism for pro-abortion. Ever since 1973, seventeen million Black babies have been destroyed in the womb and disposed of. In 1977, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Sr. said that abortion is “genocide against the Black race.” (FYI: Go to http://www.blackgenocide.org/.) In 1984, he flip-flopped on that issue for some reason.

    Every day over 1200 Black babies are being aborted, with no outcries from “Black Leadership,” especially Barack Obama. Did you know that abortion is largest cause of death in the black community today? Is it any wonder that as a whole, that as a “minority” group, Hispanics have passed Blacks in population? Our numbers are dwindling. And who is allowing that to happen? (The Ku Klux Klan and the Aryan Nations are not complaining about that. They would complain if we were saving our babies instead of killing them. At the rate we are going we will put them out of business because we are doing their job for them, aren’t we? They may picket and protest us for taking their jobs away.)

    Let the little children suffer, right?

    Many Blacks will vote for Obama simply because he is Black. They want to see a Black man in the White House which is fine and good. But what kind of Black man do we want there? It is the color of the skin or the content of character that is more important? Did we really believe what Martin Luther King, Jr. said or did we not? Let’s be real. To Christians I ask is having a Black man in the White House more important than the lives of babies, including Black babies? Is having a Black man in the White House more important than moral principles based on God’s Word? What is more important to you: Black Pride or God’s Word? Which one would God want you to choose? (See Proverbs 31:8 again or remember Exodus 20:13 “Thou shalt not kill.”) You know this world is under the influence of two entities: God and the Devil. If you choose Black Pride and reject God’s Word, who have you really chosen by default? When Black Pride directly opposes God’s Word, which one do you feel will win over the other? And rejecting God’s Word is pure hell for Black folks, isn’t it?

    Here is what Rev. Wayne Perryman , author (Unfounded Loyalty and What the Media Failed to Tell American Voters), says about the subject:
    “Isn’t it strange that Congress seems to have unlimited funds to give to young black mothers to kill their babies (through abortions), but it struggles to find funds for pre-natal care if they decide to let their baby live? How can blacks support a candidate who is willing to provide unlimited funds to kill them (seventeen million black babies since Roe v. Wade), but is hard pressed to find health care funds to help heal them? Intelligent blacks present the question this way: Under the banner that a woman has the right to choose, why is it that the government has unlimited funds to help the black baby die, but has limited health care funds to help the baby live? It is estimated that the government has spent billions to kill the seventeen million black babies (since Roe V. Wade). This is why concerned blacks ask: Why did the government decide to fund abortions? Was it out of the concern for the poor black mother, or was it to slow down the birth rate of African Americans due to Afro-phobia? Had those seventeen million babies lived during the past thirty-four years and each had two children of their own, the black population in America would be close to ninety million, thus making it the largest ethnic minority voting group in America? How can blacks condemn Jim Crow and Klan for killing thousands of blacks, and yet support a candidate that defends a program that killed 17 million blacks? Do blacks find is strange that the same party that supported the slavery [of blacks], Jim Crow and the Ku Klux Klan is the same party that supports the killing of black babies?”

    Let the little children suffer.

    Of course I would like to see a Black man as President of the United States. I’m African American. This is America. Blacks have made many strides American society. One of us should have the most important job in the United States as well as being a recognized leader on this earth. However, this time around my vote will not go to Barack Obama. He has been weighed in the balance, character-wise, and was found wanting.

    I just saw a news report that the world wants Obama as President. I do not.
