Stanley Kurtz: The (Whole) Truth About Obama’s ‘Catholic Roots’

…Obama’s vaunted praise of Cardinal Bernardin and his proselytizing alliance with the Catholic Church are not what they appear to be (or what theNew York Times makes them out to be). Obama and his organizing mentors were simply running Alinsky’s game on the Catholic Church, promising to help advance its goals, while in reality coopting the clergy to leftist political ventures at odds with their intent.

Young Barack Obama has come a long way. It’s tough not to wonder whether this Thursday might present him with an opportunity to run Saul Alinsky’s game on the Pope.

More bad fruit: The Catholic Roots of Obama’s Activism

radicals

CHICAGO — In a meeting room under Holy Name Cathedral, a rapt group of black Roman Catholics listened as Barack Obama, a 25-year-old community organizer, trained them to lobby their fellow delegates to a national congress in Washington on issues like empowering lay leaders and attracting more believers.

“He so quickly got us,” said Andrew Lyke, a participant in the meeting who is now the director of the Chicago Archdiocese’s Office for Black Catholics. The group succeeded in inserting its priorities into the congress’s plan for churches, Mr. Lyke said, and “Barack Obama was key in helping us do that.”

Editor’s note: This is a truly wide ranging bio on the President – probably much more revealing than Mr. Obama would prefer. And now, he may have another willing collaborator in Pope Francis.

Breitbart book helps us to recognize the insidious enemy working from within to destroy America.

Aside from the Soviet empire and the 100 million people killed at the hands of Communist brutality, Marxism has always had its cultural warriors. Nothing impedes their advance so much as the United States of America.

Our enemies long ago concluded that bringing the U.S. to its knees would involve control of the culture — the everyday lives, and the everyday thoughts, of the citizens.

Breitbart saw those forces at work as a student at Tulane University — what he calls a cultural fascisti. What he saw was campus thought control: elites who decided “what was okay to think and what to write, what words meant, and who was allowed to say them. There were (and are) tribunals without oversight, as kids have been thrown out of college for uttering the wrong sentiments.”

But Tulane was a mere microcosm. Cultural Marxism was (and is) pervasive in the mainstream media, Hollywood, education (K-higher ed), and straight on into the government.

America did not simply wake up in the mid-sixties and suddenly embrace the rebellious counter-culture that would define the era. No, those seeds had been planted decades earlier.

CCHD wrap up

Why did it take FOX News to blow ACORN’s evil deception?  Instead the CCHD and the USCCB deliberately ignored the many Catholics that told them about this scandal for many years prior to this.  Now that the USCCB/CCHD has been inconvenienced with bad public relations they finally cut them off.  Well CCHD still funds many organizations that that are diametrically opposed to the central tenants of the Catholic Church.  Here is a short list of what and who they fund:

  1. Funding Abortions.
  2. Funding Same-Sex Marriage Initiatives.
  3. Promoting Marxism.
  4. Promoting and Participating in Violence.
  5. Ties with Saul Alinsky, an anarchist and anti-American.
  6. Promotes and Funds Prostitution.
  7. Funds and Promotes Racism (La Raza).

Catholic Church Funding of ACORN: Still going on?

ACORN-140x141

While Obama has strong ties to ACORN, they were originally established through the U.S. Catholic Church, which has also funded ACORN and similar organizations to the tune of millions of dollars

. This is another taboo topic for most of the media.  Even conservative news organizations are afraid of raising the issue, apparently fearing being tagged with the “anti-Catholic” label.

But the truth has been seeping out in mysterious ways. In a Politico.com story about Barack Obama’s friendly meeting with the Pope, reporter Josh Gerstein featured information that made it clear that the President’s Catholic connection goes back to his days as a community organizer and that Obama’s associates understand and appreciate this fact.

Deputy National Security Adviser Denis McDonough was quoted as saying that Obama’s work as an organizer on the South Side of Chicago “was funded partly” by the “Catholic Church campaign for human development…” He was referring to the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD), an annual collection authorized by the U.S. Catholic Bishops which is advertised as a charity to “break the vicious cycle of poverty” but in reality has funded left-wing political organizations such as ACORN to the tune of millions of dollars.
