Star Parker, "syndicated columnist," also writes for OneNewsNow. She loves Jesus, too. The trouble is her Jesus is a figment of her imagination.
How else do you explain this black woman's attempt to assassinate the character of President-elect Barack Obama?
Obama is a socialist, according to Ms. Parker, and he tries to cover that up with the "Obama oratorical fog."
Obama has big plans to use "the tax code to redistribute wealth." How will he do this? "He's got about $700 billion in so-called refundable tax credits in mind, direct money transfers to individuals, to finance his social engineering ideas in education, childcare, and environmental policy."
Is that all? Mein Gott, I thought he'd also "socialize" medicine - at least. And take over the banks. Oh, I forgot, Bush already did that!
Parker says "We're talking about a trillion dollars in new government spending to pay for his government-directed schemes to deal with just about every aspect of our lives."
All of this means "our country becomes more socialized and, by definition, less free."
Sorry, Ms. Parker, go back to school. Socialism is an economic system that by definition, has nothing to do with freedom. Freedom, or the lack of it, is a function of a political system!
Nevertheless, Parker whines that Obama's "vision of America ... has little to do with the vision of its founding because so many Americans are now detached from and uninformed by the documents that defined the country -- the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bible."
The Bible is one of the documents that defined our country? Please! Go back to school again, Ms. Parker, 'cause your full of ... well, you know what! And while you're at it, read the Declaration and the Constitution again, yourself, 'cause you really don't have a clue!
Because Obama's a socialist, says Ms. Parker, instead of protecting individual liberty and guarding against "intrusions on our life and property," he'll begin intruding wholesale on our individual liberty and our life and property.
Then, Parker really goes off the rails. She's afraid that Obama will appoint judges who will actually care about the poor, the sick, and minorities and might make laws to help them. She quotes a bible verse against such a thing: "Do not glorify a destitute person in his grievance." Whatever the hell that means. She doesn't reference the verse so it's hard to put it in context, if, indeed, it even appears in the bible.
What's the problem with caring for the poor, the sick and minorities? Well, says Parker, "Our biblical tradition, which is clear that we should love our neighbor and give charity, is also clear that courtrooms are the place to objectively apply law and not for politics.
The woman is a moron and biblically illiterate. Unfortunately, too many people will read this trash and believe it.
