Yet another hateful blog has sprung up on Barack Obama's official site. The group Socialists for Obama offers a meandering tome that spews bile and vitriol while railing against the all-powerful "Jewish lobby."
The blog appears to have been around since April as one of the commenters voices his thanks for the venue:
First of all, my sincere appreciation to the moderator of this website, that he allows the fundamental issue to be presented and even discussed here.
To that extent, he is more honorable than ANY of the thousands of religious ‘authorities’ and hundreds of media officials (and who controls the media if not the secularists, the Jews and the Christians?) who I have contacted over the last 30 some years.
Officially sanctioned religious hatred?
Now that's change we can believe in!
Update: Lest one think this is some sort of anomaly, the Obama campaign blogs of Dewan Karim ("In collaboration with the Clintons, they [the Jewish Lobby] dispatched a number of "candidacy assassinators" including former Clinton special counsel, Lanny Davis, Florida congress woman, Debbie Wasserman-Shultz, California congress man, Brad Sherman, CNN news anchor, Wolf Blitzer [vis-a-vis Lou Dobbs], Independent Senator, Joseph Lieberman, the far right crippled Washington Post Journalist, Charles Krauthammer and others to torpedo Obama's nomination bid.") and Elaine Kelley ("Senator Obama is for real change or just business as usual. I'd like to know why Sen. Obama started to speak the truth about Palestine/Israel, then did a 90-degree right turn. I want to believe he stands for change we can believe in. But can anyone run for high office in this country without being raked over by AIPAC?") are sufficient evidence otherwise.
Update: Fausta has a good summary of this and other controversial posts hosted by the brilliant, uber-Internet-savvy Obama campaign (via Larwyn). Linked by: LGF, Gateway Pundit, Protein Wisdom, American Thinker, Atlas, Carl in Jerusalem, and Memeorandum. Thanks!
