Who Is “Jon Christian Ryter”?
According to his website, it’s a pseudonym for a one-time reporter for the Parkersburg, West Virginia Sentinel, who wrote a syndicated column called “Answers From the Bible,” and who is now an advertising executive at the Washington Times. He is a contributor to a far-right wing website called News With Views, and writes stuff like “When America Was A Real Place To Be Proud Off” (I think he means “of”). Great times like these:
When I was in high school, most male teachers had a large paddle, drilled with air holes to make sure paddle made solid contact with your behind when you got smart.
But what caught my attention was the screed on Obama from January called “Obama’s Muslim Connection“. Sadly, it appears this kind of ugliness isn’t going away anytime soon.
In 1991 a young Muslim Harvard Law College graduate named Barack Hussein Obama (who has denied his Islamic past and Muslim roots for as long as he has been a public figure) became a civil rights community activist working out of the Trinity United Church of Christ. Obama worked as a community organizer for Trinity in poor black neighborhoods. Trinity’s senior pastor Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr, a black racist, who preached radical Afrocentric theology and didn’t mind delivering profanity-spiked sermons found a congregation-builder in Obama. Because of what Wright called Obama’s multiple-faith background and his Harvard education, he was a natural community-builder.
When Obama broke onto the national political scene in 2004, not only did he attempt to erase all traces his Islamic childhood, but he also tried to erase the nature of his relationship with Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr, the pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ. (When your country is at war with Islamic extremists being a Muslim is not the shortest route to the White House.)
“Jon Christian Ryter” goes on to proclaim:
They need to ask the man who he really is because, up to this point on the campaign trail, he has lied to them.
Interesting that this comes from a man who uses a “pseudonym” and does not reference his real name. Mr. “Ryter”, you want to know who Barack Obama is. Let’s start with this: Who are you?Click here for reuse options!
