Facing facts - feeling disgust

Reader comment on item: Obama Would Fail Security Clearance
in response to reader comment: Of burning churches and dead Christians in Kenya.

Submitted by Randall (United States), Oct 29, 2008 at 02:22

Here's a two-step process to one of the greatest mysteries of this election:

1. Go to "Google - Images" and enter "Kenya Violence" (or any synonyms, such as Kenya church burnings") and you'll see unbelievable carnage that happened early this year;

2. Then ask yourself whether Obama, or any of his advisors, or his religious mentor, or Louis Farrakhan, of Jesse Jackson, or any other black leader, spoke out against the slaughter that was going on in Obama's family homeland. Ask yourself if he ever phoned the president of the country, or spoke out about this to the press, or used his well-known name in Kenya to stop the killing (Kenya has even named a beer after his name.)

Nothing will come to mind. Yet a few years ago he was there campaigning on behalf of his cousin. And during his campaign last year he was on the phone with his cousin, giving advice. And the slaughter followed all this. And he has stayed quiet since. The MSM has stayed out.

So our MSM quickly destroys any politician who has an extra-marital affair or takes a gift or doesn't pay their taxes. Yet we may soon have a president who stood by silently and watched his Kenya sink into civil war, and no one will notice or care. Is this hypocricy or not?
