What “History” Says

About Senator Obama?

(If It Draws From Our Media’s Representations of His Life,

How Can Any “History” be Trusted?)

If History comes from the tales of a love sick school girl (or boy), is it safe to say that we should question the portrayal? If History comes from a news commentator, who gets a tingle running up his leg when he hears Sen. Obama speak, should we question his portrayal? I hope so. If 90% of the media seems to be looking at Sen. Obama’s life through rose colored glasses, will History be likely to paint an accurate depiction of today’s reality?

We each have to answer that question.

This is such an important election, ground breaking to be sure. Surely we all want information and assertions that could legitimately impact a voter’s decision making process to be presented in a fair and impartial manner.

Doesn’t that include those stories and allegations that are trying to break through to the public’s awareness, that circulate on the internet, which have more than a remote possibility of being true?

Isn’t it the duty of the press to investigate thoroughly and report their findings as to the allegations validity?

Isn’t it?

Have we ever been able to trust History? Or is the realm of this mistrust confined to today because of the glaring failings of our media to do their jobs?

Larry Sinclair’s allegations that he and Sen. Obama used crack cocaine and engaged in gay sex falls within the purview of an allegation that has more than a remote possibility of being true. Especially, when one considers how many people Sen. Obama has thrown under the bus and explained it as (he, she, it) was not the person I knew.

Martin Luther King, Jr., a man I admire greatly, once said:

We are not makers of history. We are made by history.

And therefore, I have to ask this question:

What if the History we are made by is not accurate?

What if that inaccuracy is due to the media’s own diminution of their role because they agree with Vladimir Lenin.

Sometimes – history needs a push.
Vladimir Lenin

Scary, don’t you think?

    Sinclair smear site’s source has one long rap sheet

    EXCERPT

    “None of Sinclair’s history has anything to do with facts like the limo driver’s name or the phone numbers he provided at the press conference. Here’s to the hope that the Chicago PD is doing their jobs rather than claiming they’re doing an ‘investigation’ and merely coming up with a politically acceptable conclusion for the Obama campaign.

    If they were doing their jobs, they would be concentrating on verifying the facts presented, like the phone numbers – and trying to get Obama’s phone records from 1999 to verify who it was that Obama called on the night that Sinclair alleges Obama made a call to score some coke – in addition to those of Donald Young and the other gay members of the Trinity United Church of Christ who were murdered.

    It would seem to me that at least following those leads could either exonerate Obama, or land him in hot water. Either way, let’s get on with it and stop with the stalking and attempted extortion of money from little old ladies like Sinclair’s mother simply because she IS Sinclair’s mother, which is just another way to apply pressure to him to shut up.”

    “The past is whatever the records and the memories agree upon.
    And since the party is in full control of all records, and in
    equally full control of the minds of it’s members, it follows
    that the past is whatever the party chooses to make it. Six
    means eighteen, two plus two equals five, war is peace,
    freedom is slavery, ignorance is strength.”
    …. George Orwell
