Five days prior to the 2008 presidential election, Barack Hussein Obama delivered one of the most destructive messages ever uttered by a political candidate when he announced his intention to “fundamentally transform” this nation. True to his words, since entering the Oval Office in January 2009, Obama and his anti-American allies have been tearing down the history, culture, customs and traditions upon which this country was founded.
This cultural cleansing not only includes state governments banishing Confederate flags from public buildings, but also calls from black leaders to “remove” the Jefferson Memorial because our third president once legally owned slaves. New Orleans Democratic Mayor Mitch Landrieu seeks to tear down a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.
Other factions are demanding even more radical approaches. On June 24, former New Black Panther Party leader Malik Zulu Shabazz told his followers: “Finish the mission—kill slave masters.” The Nation of Islam’s Louis Farrakhan recommended another line of action: “We need to put the American flag down!” Even the Warner Brothers movie studio has felt pressure to prohibit any further sales of Dukes of Hazzard memorabilia, because the TV show’s famous orange car sports a rebel flag on its roof.
Amid this backlash in which totalitarian-minded liberals seek to flush all history that they don’t agree with down an Orwellian memory hole, on June 23, this reporter spoke with Alan Rush of the South Carolina Conservative Action Committee.
In the weeks before 21-year-old Dylann Roof allegedly shot nine parishioners at a Methodist church in Charleston, Rush sold copies of America’s Racial Powder Keg at a flea market located about 45 minutes away.
When asked about the attack on specific southern-related symbols, Rush said: “Obama hates the Confederate flag. He wants to take down this flag because, by doing so, it demoralizes whites. It’s a rallying point for people all around the nation who know what this flag represents, and Obama can’t stand it.”
Providing ammunition to support his claim, Rush cited a man who served as radical black religious leader Reverand Jeremiah Wright’s mentor, James Cone. Obama spent 20 years listening to Wright while attending his church in Chicago. Obama even referred to Wright as his spiritual advisor.
Rush told AMERICAN FREE PRESS: “James Cone, a communist, was the founder of Black Liberation Theology. I have a collection of Cone’s writings, and in one book he said, ‘What we need is the destruction of whiteness, which is the source of human misery in the world.’ ”
As a direct disciple of Cone via his allegiance to Wright, Obama embraced this type of anti-white hate speech for two decades.
According to Rush: “All the racial strife we’ve seen over the past few years started with Obama and his tin-pot African tribalism that isn’t very presidential. Obama’s pushing African moral superiority over what he sees as white depravity. Not only is he attacking the Confederate flag, but everything associated with our heritage.”
