Powell turns his back on America

Former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell, appearing this morning on Meet the Press, formally lent his endorsement to Senator Barack Hussein Obama's leftist campaign for the presidency on the basis, in Powell's words, that Obama "has the ability to inspire." No, I'm not making this up. But it gets worse:

President Bush's first secretary of state criticised his own party for allowing the campaign to turn negative.

"I'm also troubled by, not what Senator McCain says, but what members of the [Republican] Party say... such things as 'Well, you know that Mr Obama is a Muslim'.

"Well the correct answer is, 'He's not a Muslim, he's a Christian, he's always been a Christian'. But the really right answer is, "What if he is?' Is there something wrong with being a Muslim in this country? The answer is 'No', that's not America."

Mr Powell said he remained a Republican though he thought his party was moving too far to the right.

The Republican party is moving too far to the right? You must be kidding me! If the Republican party isn't moving far enough and fast enough for you to the left, Mr. Powell, then I'd suggest, sir, that you abandon it as you've done your country and officially join that other party where you belong. And take McCain with you while you're at it, eh?

Oh, and let's not neglect the minor issue of Powell's Islam-embracing dogmatism which states that America is not America that prefers Christian leaders over Islamic ones. Thus Americans who prefer Christians over Muslims, according to Mr. Powell, are not true Americans.

Here's the irrefutable evidence for Powell's betrayal of America, he could have refused to endorse either candidate, yet he chose to officially endorse Barack Hussein Obama and all the leftist anti-American baggage he carries with him. Not to mention that he states in no uncertain terms that even if Obama were a Muslim, he would still endorse him for POTUS.

Look for a Powell appointment in an Obama administration. And look out America, the Muslims have their agents and infiltrators everywhere, at all levels of government.


On further reflection I think I get it now. I was initially looking at Powell's statement about the Republican party moving "too far to the right" as separate from his statements about America not being America unless it fully embraces Islam to the extent that it would elect a Muslim president. But the two statements work hand-in-glove. That's really the only way they make any sense considering the obvious fact that the Republican party is increasingly moving to the left, not to the right as Powell asserts. As Powell sees it, however, the Republican party is moving in the opposite direction, and here's why -- he sees that a growing segment of the Republican base is finally opening its eyes to the fact that Islam ain't all that president Bush has cracked it up to be, i.e., a great and peaceful religion hijacked by radicals. Since Republicans constitute the vast majority of folks who are finally beginning to see the light about Islam, and beginning to speak more openly about it, which is a danger to Islamic influence in America, Powell therefore concludes that the Republican party is moving too far to the right. With this covert agent of Islam it's about America's attitude toward Islam. It's all becoming very clear to me now.

Or is it simply Powell's sense of relative motion that causes him to see the Republican party as moving too far to the right? In other words, is Powell himself moving to the left at a faster pace than the bulk of the Republican party thus creating in him the relative sense that the Republican party is moving to the right, when in reality it is Powell that is moving to the left, as I said, at a velocity exceeding that of the Republican party?

Note to Mr. Powell: It was long ago discovered that the earth is not the center of the universe, if you catch my drift.

I think you are pretty close to the mark here. I was appalled to hear Mr. Powell's statements. I was even more appalled at the reasoning he gave for his statement. It was nothing more than politically correct - we shouldn't be hurting people's feelings - fluff.

As Americans, we all have an absolute right to know everything we can find out about a presidential candidate and more, we have the responsibility to do so. It is in no way un-American to question his relationships with a known terrorist.

To question his religious affiliations is also a duty when one considers his early education as a Muslim and is aware of the acceptance of lying in that religion in the practice of taqiyya. Especially when one considers that Mr. Obama's conversion to Christianity should earn him the death sentence (or at least some harsh words from those who may value their continued association with the U.S.A.) from all true followers of that religion and yet, Mr. Obama has received nothing but praise and support from Muslim leaders the world around. (I have yet to hear of a single Muslim leader who has condemned his conversion to Christianity, has anyone else?) I should think the American people would demand a closer scrutiny of that inconsistency.

Mom, thanks. You wrote:

I'll gladly take that thought further and assert that it is in every way un-American to neglect, for PC reasons or otherwise, to question his relationships with known terrorists, not to mention other 'questionable' relationships Hussein Obama has had during the course of his life.

In fact I'll go it a step further even and assert that, based on Powell's statements in which he builds his simultaneous support for Obama and dissatisfaction with the Republican party, Powell's entire public life to date should be gone over with a fine toothed comb. He should also be watched like a hawk from hence forward in whatever capacity he serves under the United States.

I realize that it isn't a very politically correct question to ask and please cut me some slack because I am rather naive when it comes to many aspects of American politics, but I always considered Powell the antithesis of Obama with his soldierly record and the fact that he had never travelled on the race ticket. Anything like this seems incongrous coming from Powell, at least to me. So dare I ask it? Is it possible that, consciously or subconsciously, Powell is siding with Obama because they are both black (or rather not-quite-white because none of them looks exactly like Kunta Kinte)? Is it possible, really possible, that such "race solidarity" exists, and even with a man like Powell whom I'd always considered a man of great integrity.

I have re-read your post and I think the Muslim-issue Powell raised deserves an extra comment:

That specific statement is so rock-hard, imperviously, impermeably, intransigently, totally and utterly dumb that it gives a new dimension to that word.

I have deplored the, not entirely inapprehensible, American naivité regarding this specific topic before, but Powell isn't just ANY American.

Here are my arguments. A couple of weeks in a lesser neighbourhood in a West German city would be enough to cure Powell from his politically correct delusions.

Terry Morris said...

Nora, I'm not much on conspiracy theories myself, though I rarely automatically discount them.

For my part I will, from this day forward, always look at Mr. Powell as an infiltrator and a subversive. What drives him to be one (pc induced blindness or naivite, race solidarity or whatever) is not as important to me as the fact that he IS one. Powell has notably joined the ranks of Louis Farrakan, William Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, and God only knows what other America hating Muslims and Muslim sympathizers that are out there.

The Bible teaches us, and we should learn it well, that only God knows the hearts of men. But by his recent fruits should all of Powell's deeds to date be closely scrutinized by all Americans who know the truth about Islam.

I, as a non-American, can not even begin to understand the depth of your disgust and the feeling of treason you are experiencing, but I do understand it on a more superficial level (I hope). I think, however, it is important to know what makes people tick, what let Powell make such a shocking statement. It is important because others will follow the same line of thought and looking through it, knowing where it comes from, makes subversion like that less dangerous.

Amen Mom! It will never cease to amaze me why his Muslim-past was never thematized in the campaign. Everybody who knows the first thing about Islam will know that he is considered a Muslim by other Muslims, whatever he may call himself.

One more time, those who feel they are entitled to lie to protect their interests can be trusted in nothing.

Terry Morris said...

Mom, you're right to keep driving the point home. You're preaching to the choir here, but that's okay, even the choir needs to hear the sermon.

Nora, thank you for your sympathy. You are definitely right, the word "treason" has come to mind many times since I first learned of ... Mr. Powell's. Indeed, I've thought several times of General Washington's phrase -- "treason of the blackest dye..." -- no aversion to Powell's race intended.
