Barack Obama is a member of Chicago's Trinity United Church of Christ. Its minister, and Obama's spiritual adviser, is the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. In 1982, the church launched Trumpet Newsmagazine; Wright's daughters serve as publisher and executive editor. Every year, the magazine makes awards in various categories. Last year, it gave the Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. Trumpeter Award to a man it said "truly epitomized greatness." That man is Louis Farrakhan.
Richard Cohen will probably catch some heat for this op-ed, but I think (as usual) he’s on to something here. He’s right that Obama’s got some real answering to do. And not just about Farrakhan.
My sources report that Obama has seen the movie Brokeback Mountain, starring Jack Gyllenhaal. As you may recall, that movie also included Heath Ledger. Ledger, in turn, appeared with Mel Gibson in The Patriot. Gibson, in turn, worked with Julia Roberts in Conspiracy Theory. Roberts, in turn, appeared in Flatliners with . . . [dramatic chord] KEVIN BACON.
Bacon, of course, is a well-known Communist and terrorist sympathizer. Obama’s got a real problem here.
