On July 3 G. Gordon Liddy had a fascinating discussion on the “G. Gordon Liddy Show” with Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, founder of BOND (Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny). They discussed how the left uses race as an issue to augment its power regardless of the harm that so doing causes to the black community. The podcast is available here.
Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson: When the House and the Senate apologized for slavery I was saddened by that because I know that white Americans who are living today had nothing to do with past history. All the slaves are dead, all the slaves’ owners are dead, and America has done more to repent or make up for the past history of this country than any other country in the world and when they apologized I knew then that it opened the door for reparations and I had thought once, Gordon, that we would never have reparations, that that would not come about, but now that we have the Messiah there, the prophet, the anointed one in the minds of many black people, Barack Obama, I believe now that reparations are going to happen and it’s just, it’s evil and it’s going to divide us like nothing else before in history but this apology has opened the door for that.
For example, Harvard professor, law professor Charles Ogletree helped put this resolution together, he worked with the Senate to put this apology together and he’s been fighting for restitution for a long time and he said that, OK an apology is nice but it’s not enough, it’s not going to satisfy black America until they give us money, and I’m sorry about that. I wish that white America would stand up to this racism that’s coming from black people but I don’t see that happening. I think it’s a sad day in America.

Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson: I’ve been saying to white Americans for years now that they need to start speaking up, they need to get over this fear of being called a racist, because they have allowed this to happen for 50 years and they have trained other young blacks that, you know, Jesse Jackson and others can get away with intimidating us and you can do the same thing and now we have a far-left liberal socialist black Democrat who believes in the redistribution of wealth, he wants to take it from the white man and give it to those who are not earning their way because they’re trying to destroy the white man and that’s what this is about and if white people don’t get over the fear of being called racist it’s over for America.
I don’t see the Republicans standing up to this guy. Because he’s a black liberal they’re afraid of racism and Obama has turned this country upside down and I believe in my heart that Obama will go down in history as the most hated and worst president that this country has ever experienced and all of these guys are connected together.
Capital Research Center is closed today for a Fourth of July weekend-extender but I still managed to do a radio interview.
I spoke with Melanie Morgan and John McCaslin on “America’s Morning News,” which is the new radio program of the Washington Times newspaper. We talked about a blog post I wrote, Do Census Layoffs Clear the Way for Hiring of ACORN Workers? (crossposted at CRC Blog).
Audio file available here.
Blogger Nancy Armstrong (MsPlacedDemocrat.com) reports that St. Louis, Missouri, gave a $100,000 grant to ACORN and that $82,000 of it is unaccounted for.
The money was given to ACORN for loan modifications, that is, to help struggling homeowners refinance their mortgages. ACORN reportedly charges $750 for each loan modified and says it has completed 24 of them, which means it is entitled to $18,000 from the grant.
Read more about it on Armstrong’s blog here.
Armstrong and I discussed the matter with G. Gordon Liddy on his show earlier today. (podcast here)
On the September 23, 2008, edition of our show, “Organization Watch,” James Dellinger and Matthew Vadum interviewed the new editor of Labor Watch, Jeremy Lott. We talked about Lott’s books, The Warm Bucket Brigade and In Defense of Hypocrisy, former banker Henry Paulson’s proposed bank bailout, and about organized labor’s attempt to mess with union-certification rules.
(Note that this was our first use of the BlogTalkRadio network so we did experience some minor technical difficulties.)
Our new public service announcement about ACORN, the corrupt community organizing group that specializes in electoral fraud, is now available in our podcasting section. (A primer on community organizing is available here.)
The PSA (MP3 file here), which I narrate, runs on Radio America, including on the G. Gordon Liddy and Michael Reagan shows.
We’ll have another three PSAs posted in coming days. One features the vocal stylings of our new Labor Watch editor, the great Jeremy Lott.
On “The Roger Hedgecock Show” yesterday John Gizzi discussed California’s AB 624, a bill that would have forced foundations to publicly disclose the race, gender and ethnicity of their board trustees and the boards and staff of their grantees. The bill was withdrawn at the eleventh hour after California’s largest foundations promised to lavish millions of dollars on minority communities. The bill was pushed by the Greenlining Institute, a left-wing pressure group that threatens adverse public relations campaigns against lenders that refuse to bow to its agenda.
Gizzi wrote about the bill in the July Foundation Watch and his article on the Greenlining Institute will appear in the August Organization Trends.
