Repudiation 2.0

May 10, 2008

It’s quite obvious to me, that America has now been given a new standard for Repudiation, previously known as Denouncement and Disowning. The New Repudiation, very much like the New Math, is a convention recognized when forced to compare the two standards, and as usual, is the burden of those whose must adapt.

There are many to whom we must give thanks for Repudiation 2.0, and ironically enough, are proudly identified as Conservatives, who knew. After exposure to the daily rant of professed Christian Conservatives, who proudly claim that the ability to malign, slander and judge is a blessing by God, we have deciphered what we believe to be the Repudiation 2.0 definition:

re-pu-di-a-tion 2.0: noun, 1. the act of refusing to establish or maintain an association with. [expected of everyone, except Conservatives]

Billy Graham & Jerry Falwell have shared with Americans, the great blessings of God’s power, wisdom, and love, throughout the many decades that they’ve served as leaders of their respective churches. Each of these men have dedicated much of their lives leading programs that have fed the poor,cared for the sick, and prayed with those whose faith had been shaken by tragedy. To their credit, they’ve managed to maintain a healthy relationship with spouses, children and grandchildren, while their ministries required travel throughout the world… A portrait of service shared by Reverend Jeremiah Wright.

DISCLAIMER: Reverend Jeremiah Wright is Racists. [Clearly evidenced by his statements]

Most African Americans would likely acknowledge the fact that Reverend Wright’s statements are racists, given that most African Americans would be outraged by similar statements from, shall we say, non African Americans. What makes this pill so difficult to ingest is the application of Repudiation 2.0, whereby an African American, specifically, Senator Barack Obama, is being called to disown Reverend Wright, because of his professed, and often poorly reasoned, opinions of Americans, both Black & White. As I said, most African Americans would likely acknowledge the fact that Reverend Wright’s statements are racists, however, Conservatives’ application of Repudiation 2.0 is, in a word, Unacceptable

Billy Graham was recorded [noted quoted, but recorded], while conversing with former US President Richard Nixon and with whom he shared a very close relationship, noting his obvious disdain & distrust of Jewish people:

Graham: “I go and see friends of Mr. Rosenthal at The New York Times, and people of that sort. And, I don’t mean all the Jews, but a lot of the Jews are great friends of mine. They swarm around me and are friendly to me, because they know I am friendly to Israel and so forth. They don’t know how I really feel about what they’re doing to this country.

Nixon: “You know, it was good we got this point about the Jews across…The Jews are [an] irreligious, atheistic, immoral bunch of bastards.

Sean Hannity and other notable Conservatives, after having adopted the tactic of plausible deniability, have refused to acknowledge the existence of this recording [as noted in the video below] and thus aren’t obligated to Repudiate Billy Graham and other renowned religious leaders who’ve made comparable statements against America:

Jerry Falwell:I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People for the American Way — all of them who have tried to secularize America — I point the finger in their face and say ‘you helped this happen.'” –on the 9/11 attacks

John Hagee: “So I believe that the judgment of God is a very real thing. I know there are people who demur from that, but I believe that the Bible teaches that when you violate the law of God, that God brings punishment sometimes before the Day of Judgment, and I believe that the Hurricane Katrina was, in fact, the judgment of God against the city of New Orleans

If Americans are going to asked to account for their relationships [ties] with religious leaders, then we must ensure that this standard is equally applied. It is unfortunate, however, not ironic, that those who loudly profess the love of God, Country and Man, coward under the weight of their hypocrisy, and arrogantly structure alternate and more palpable standards for themselves…Repudiation 2.0.
