A while back, I wondered if one of the right-wing TV hacks (Hannity, O’Reilly, etc.) would start trolling for incendiary comments from, say, Al Sharpton and gin up some kind of controversy wherein Barack Obama would be asked to “denounce” Sharpton every time he fired off his crazy-ass mouth.
Y’know, just because he’s black, and Obama’s black, and so… all “Sister Souljah moments,” all the time! Or something.
Anyway, it looks like the esteemed Washington Post editorial page, in the voice of Richard Cohen beat Hannity and O’Reilly to the punch on this one. He uses Farrakhan, not Sharpton, but the basic idea is the same: Obama’s church honored Farrakhan. Farrakhan is an anti-semite. QED, if Obama doesn’t renounce his own church, he’s also an anti-semite!!
Of course, if he does renounce his church, well, then, it just proves that he’s not a real Christian and all those “Muslim” emails I keep getting must actually be true!
