The “Obama Was In The Church” Meme
Want to know why I made such a big deal when a blogger said that Obama “finally admitted that he was in Church when Wright said some of the things we saw him say on video.” ?
Here’s a comment that was posted from a random visitor to the site…
Neither myself,my family nor my friends care who now endorses Obama. He lied about being in the church when the hateful statements were made by Mr. Wright. It was a basic simple thing that showes he canâ€™t tell the truth and he didnâ€™t remove himself or disown this hate fullman.The youth have a problem with concentration. They love rallys, but itâ€™s the people my age who vote. No one knows what the situation will be in November, but donâ€™t bet the house that the young people will stay interested that long.
Now the blogger I quoted has since said that what he meant was that Obama admitted he was in Church when similar statements were made. As most of you know, Obama didn’t admit anything of the sort, but as you can see…some voters don’t even care to make this distinction. They’re simply repeating the meme that Obama “lied about being in the church when the hateful statements were made by Mr. Wright.”
We’re obviously all guilty of doing this from time to time, but just consider this a heads up…because it does matter.
