Serene Jones, Gary Dorrien, and Cornel West, all alleged religious scholars, were on a recent segment of Bill Moyers’ Journal, talking about the age of Obama and capitalism, theology, social justice, and many other things. Cornel West, committed race pimp, had the following gems to share from the transcript:
…”the age of Obama actually emerges with a discredited Republican party in disarray. With a mediocre Democratic party that only had the Clinton machine at the center. And if this charismatic, brilliant, young, black brother can somehow get over the Clinton machine, he can become president.
“That’s why I supported him. Critically! A Socratic, prophetic, orientation toward the brother, right? Because he becomes the initiator of a new age. We had to bring the age of Reagan to a close. The era of conservatism had to be brought to a close. Thank God it was. But then the question will be, well, is he going to focus on the poor and working people? Will he recycle neo-liberal elites from the old establishment of Wall Street – which the economic team is?”
