Letter: President Obama is 'organizing' again

Enid News and Eagle

ENID, Okla. — Illinois is the most corrupt state in the union. Chicago is the murder capital of America.

Did you ever ask yourself, “Just what is a community organizer?” That is Obama’s claim as to why he was qualified to hold the highest office in the free world.

He, of course, served in the Illinois state Legislature and only shortly in the U.S. Senate before running for president. A community organizer is the practice of identifying a specific aggrieved population — say unemployed steelworkers, or fruit-pickers, or residents of a really bad neighborhood — and agitating them until they become so upset about their situation that they take collective action to put pressure on local, state or federal officials to fix the problem, often by giving the affected group money.

Organizers were also described as an abrasive agent to rub raw the resentments of the people of the community, to fan hostilities. Once the hostilities were whipped up, the organizer would steer his group toward confrontation, in the form of picketing, demonstrating and general hell-raising. Interesting!

Remember the Rev. Jeremiah Wright? He was Obama’s close friend and spiritual adviser for more than 20 years. He married the Obamas and baptized their children. He even provided the title for Obama’s book “The Audacity of Hope.”

Back in March 2008, ABC TV researched some of Wright’s sermons. Some stated that Zionism has an element of “white racism.” Another sermon stated that African-Americans should not say “God bless America,” but rather “God ‘d---’ America” for killing innocent people. Pretty angry stuff, and Obama attended church there for 20 years, why would Obama stay if he didn’t agree with the sermons?

Jan. 1, 2014 — Obama says we can keep our doctor and we can keep our hospital. Call it “Obamacare!”

Sounds like he is organizing again!
