This is another update on The Donald’s presidential run. Ensure that you keep yourself up to date!:
The denomination that brought America Barack Obama’s radical, racist pastor is back in the news, but this time the mainstream media won’t be covering up the extremist narrative that serves the progressive cause.
Congregations of the United Church of Christ – home of Chicago’s Rev. Jeremiah Wright – are joining in what they hope will become a national movement of shamed white people atoning for what amounts to a new original sin of “racism,” just because they were born white in the United States of America.
It’s a stunning attempt by a major religious organization to demonize white America, and the backlash on social media is already building.
According to The Washington Post, the “Racists Anonymous” movement started with a United Church of Christ congregation in Sunnyvale, California, where the Rev. Ron Buford, a black minister, decided to help his congregation recognize their own inherent, internal racism.
“The first step is that you have to acknowledge that you have a problem,” he told the Post. “That is something that we as Americans don’t want to do.”
Maybe they don’t get cable out in Santa Clara County, but most of the country is pretty well aware that America has a racial problem that seems to be getting worse in the second term of America’s first black president.
The thinking part of the country is also pretty well aware that the racial divide is being broadened by a continuous diet of Black Lives Matter propaganda that’s distorted legitimate grievances into a national movement aimed at twisting liberal white guilt into greater progressive political power.
But that’s not stopping Buford and his co-religionists from trying to warp the famous 12-step program of Alcoholics Anonymous into a race-based re-education system for their overwhelmingly white church (85 percent white, 5 percent black, 4 percent biracial, 4 percent Asian.)
According to the Post, more than 30 other churches have started “Racist Anonymous” groups since the Sunnyvale chapter blessed the “white privilege” support group in 2015. Members hope to grow it into a national network similar to AA, one of the most successful social reform movements in the country’s history, with a worldwide membership estimated at more than 2 million people.
Let’s just say that it’s a safe bet that’s not going to happen. Alcoholics Anonymous was started by Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith back in 1935 because both men realized they were struggling with a disease that was going to kill them and thought they had found a solution they could share with others.
It wasn’t a pop-social, astroturf movement dreamed up by an ultra-liberal Protestant church whose biggest claim to fame was a clergymen screaming “God d**n America” to an audience that likely included a future president of the United States.
It also wasn’t damning its fellow countrymen for a “sin” they inherited and inevitably exhibit solely by virtue of having Caucasian DNA.
AA is also expressly apolitical – “not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution.”
It’s extremely doubtful the UCC could make the same claim (besides what’s necessary to keep its tax-exempt status).
It’s an ultra-liberal church with an ultra-liberal message. And dressing up its liberal political propaganda in the language of a successful, spiritually based self-help movement isn’t going to fool anybody for very long.
At least not judging by the reaction to the news on social media. Here’s a small, but representative, sample.

@PrisonPlanet , yes indeed, but don’t let the truth distort a leftard, libtard myth.

This one summed it up well (edited slightly to soften the expletive.)
@MaggieJordanACN that is so batsh*t crazy it’s something I’d expect to read in The Onion. Unreal.

The craziest part about it is the sanctimonious air this church-based movement is already assuming, with write-ups in staunch liberal outlets like Vox, which claims no one in America admits being racist because everybody in America is racist, in Esquire, and the Huffington Post.
It’s also apparently part of an institutional United Church of Christ commitment to brand all Caucasians in America as inevitably racist and in need of reform, regardless of whether they’re church members. In fact, one of the church’s social media managers recently posted a piece on an official church blog outright declaring that all whites in America, even liberal whites, are racist no matter what.
“White people always benefit from institutionalized racism, no matter how anti-racist your ideologies may be,” Marchae Grair, editor of the church’s New Sacred blog wrote in a post of 10 helpful tips for white people to deal with their own racism. “You can’t disconnect yourself completely from the racism from which you benefit, and recognizing that is a large step in rejecting white privilege.”
Jeremiah Wright himself couldn’t have put it any better.
Just remember, don’t accept the mainstream media’s nonsense and never let them distress you. Make America Great Again!
