TLF: Mr. Great Expectations Not Real Popular With Some Blacks

Sorry, I do not use the phrase “African-Americans.” And these particular folks are not too impressed with B. Hussein Obama

Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) may be riding what seems a perfect wave toward the Democratic presidential nomination, but some African-Americans say his pro-abortion stance make him a danger to the black community.

“Between 1882 and 1962, 3,446 blacks were lynched,” says Rev. Clenard H. Childress Jr. on his Web site, blackgenocide.org. “That number is surpassed in less than three days by abortion.”

More than 1,400 African-American children are aborted each day in the United States, said Childress.

“We want every American citizen to know this man’s voting record on such a crucial issue,” Childress told Cybercast News Service, referring to Obama’s vote against the Born Alive Victims Protection Act, a federal law that gives rights to newborns who survive late-term abortion. “Abortion affects the African-American community more than any other ethnic group in the country,” said Childress.

Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, founder and president of the non-profit Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny, or BOND, told Cybercast News Service that he doesn’t want the first African-American president to hold values that are detrimental to the black community.

“Abortion is genocide,” Peterson said. “It has had a greater affect on the African American community than slavery itself. For Barack Obama to support abortion shows a lack of love for the black community and especially for the unborn.”

And, yes, there are more people against Obama due to his anti-life stances. This is not an argument I generally get involved in, and I will not now. But, for those who are interested, let’s look at a tale of the abortion tape

  • Voted against banning partial birth abortion. (Oct 2007)
  • Trust women to make own decisions on partial-birth abortion. (Apr 2007)
  • Constitution is a living document; no strict constructionism. (Oct 2006)
  • Voted YES on expanding research to more embryonic stem cell lines. (Apr 2007)
  • Voted NO on notifying parents of minors who get out-of-state abortions. (Jul 2006)

The partial birth abortion and parental notification votes are the ones that drive me nuts. Barbaric and irresponsible (taking responsibility out of parents hands), respectively. And, as I have said a few times, Democrats push ESC research as a way to help keep abortion on demand legal and easily available.

“The abortion issue, unfortunately, is not a differentiator on the Democratic side,” (Ken) Blackwell said, noting that all of the candidates vying for the nomination share Obama’s stand on abortion. “Unfortunately, for the soul of the Democratic party, it’s not a big issue.”

Mostly true, but, it will make a difference to some, who believe in the sanctity of life.

    In the last election (2006) blacks voted 89% for the democrats. I expect it to go into the 90s in 2008.
    Blacks are one of the groups that make up the party that you hate.
