Obama Resigns His Church Membership

Update: Confirmed by Obama spokesman.

Breaking on CNN from Obama shill Roland Martin.

Remember, "I could no more distance myself from Pastor Wright than I could from my white grandmother"?

I guess grandma is on notice.

Below the fold is the Pfleger spiel on Hillary that Obama denounced. Will he be asked if he felt out of place among people who laughed and cheered something he denounced? How could he spend 20 years worshiping in an environment like that?

Related [ace]: To let you in on a little secret, I've been a member of the Illinois Nazis for twenty years.

But I now am surprised and disappointed to find them saying that "the Jews are using the blacks as muscle to move in on you, and you are left defenseless."

I just didn't know Illinois Nazis said this sort of thing. They certainly didn't say anything so controversial at all the Hitler Rallies and Cross Burnings I attended. You also have to understand the "context" in which these sorts of things get said, and also note the various grievances Nazis might have against the US government. Like, you know, they're still pretty pissed about that whole Dresden thing. And driving Hitler to suicide in his bunker. And various other anti-Reich activities.

Honestly, if you're not an Illinois Nazi, you really are in no position to judge what might be said inside the Aryan Church.

At any rate, as I now am surprised and disappointed to find my political viability as a blogger damaged by my utterly-innocent association with the Illinois Nazis, I am "distancing myself" from them at this late date.

I do not expect to be asked any questions about my lifelong association with them from this point forward. Some people are allowed to associate with hardcore racist extremists for all their adult lives and then simply disown their entire past history with a meaningless politically-expedient gesture, and I insist I am among the select few permitted this license.

Furthermore, this entire controversy is a "distraction" intended to draw attention away from my message and the issues that really matter.
