Katrina vanden Heuvel exists to destroy peace. I also find it very telling that she's forever hiring writers but the only "Black" one she's hired in five years is actually mixed, bi-racial, White mother, Black father, Melissa Harris-Lacewell who is on yet another marriage and now goes by Melissa Harris-Perry or Parry. We can't get the voices of Black Americans in The Nation.
See, Black people scare Katrina. She lives in Harlem, in a mansion, paid for with the money her grandfather stole from Black people. People like Lena Horne who had to fork over percentages of their income to his agency even though his agency did nothing to promote them.
Katrina's got a long history of taking from Black people, just no history of giving to them.
"It Finally Happens: Obama Finds A Daddy While AWOL South American Way" (Hillary Is 44):
After his sperm donor dad dumped him, Obama’s doorknob mother (”everyone gets a turn”) with a fetish for third world men hooked up with Lolo Soetoro Mangunharjo. It didn’t take long for Lolo to dump the boy. First Obama was handed over to a nanny (a gay transvestite nanny at that – not that there’s anything wrong with that). Then Obama was shipped to Hawaii to live with the Grandma that Obama, when desperate and for political profit, called a “racist”.
When in Hawaii ten year old Obama was provided by the grandparents with a black family friend. The friend, Frank Marshall Davis, was probably a member of the Communist Party and wrote an autobiographical novel (”Sex Rebel“) that suggests Davis was a pedophile. Davis was a father type for Obama who sought him out for advice. Davis advised Obama regarding college: “You’re not going to college to get educated. You’re going there to get trained.”
The warped boy became a warped man. Obama continued to search for the elusive daddy. One big daddy opportunity came from the pulpit – Jeremiah Wright. Obama fixed himself to Jeremiah Wright for more than 20 years. Obama’s second book of fictions is titled after a Wright sermon. Wright presided at the Obama wedding,”baptized his two daughters and dedicated his house”. Obama had no problem with Wright saying “G** Damn America” but Obama did have a problem when Jeremiah Wright started to tell the truth about Obama. Obama lost another daddy.
Now Jeremiah Wright has something else to say about Barack Obama, something many have understood for a long time:
“WRIGHT: We determine that Israel can have nuclear weapons like we do, but Iran can’t have what we have and what Israel has. Let me tell you something — the commander-in-chief Barack Hussein Obama is not marching in the same parade, much less to the same beat, as the “drum major for peace” Martin Luther King. So no, baby. The see-lection — hear that word carefully — because our president was see-lected before you elected him. The selection and election of one black man does not change life on the ground for the millions of [inaudible] people who are still neglected, and kept out of every conversation about peace. No baby we’re not there yet.”
Selected, not elected.
Jeremiah Wright finally grasped what he should have grasped some time ago.
Or did he always know?
Seems there's a very good chance he always knew.
In which case, he lied to people repeatedly and did so due to what he hoped to gain.
Someone should ask him about that.
