The Victim Mongering of the Rev and Obama
"The sorrow and the pity of it all is that the Chicago pastor, who's reveling in his 15 minutes of fame, is only one of many demagogues in all races and creeds who foster cults of victimization around the globe.
"And nothing is more certain to keep those at the bottom down than self-appointed messiahs who assure them they'll always be victims."
Interestingly, Obama has a similar (though softer and more palatable) world view. Listen to his speeches and they're really about uniting the supposed victims of America.
Send me to Washington, he says, and I'll fix your problems. Put your faith in me and I'll save you from high gasoline prices, bad schools, xenophobic small-towners, greedy corporate CEOs. Or, at least in the case of the latter, I'll punish them for you.
