Encinitas City Council Candidate Tony Kranz Accused of “Attack”

People really should be angry that this part of his background was not fully explained to the public. I am not the only one that has noticed it. The author, James H. Cone, of the foundation books on Black Liberation Theology wrote in the prefix of his own book that whites often find it racist and said that a well-known Catholic sociologist, Andrew M. Greeley, though he supported Obama for the Presidency, called BLT a Nazi mentality. David Horowitz called BLT afro-Nazism in one of his books. Cone explained the racist concepts by implying that it is not racism, because white people really are evil. Hatred of the white race is not racism, he wrote. People are actually afraid to notice it and speak out, because they will be branded a "racist" and socially ostracized or because they are actually afraid they will be threatened physically, like I have been many times. Not a few silly people believe that Obama is the Antichrist. This manipulation of people's hopes for a millennial utopia and fears of the End Times has been done intentionally and very cynically, I think. The Nazis played on mass psychology of people in the same way and using the same kind of allusions to peoples deep-seated hopes and fears. Louis Farrakhan publicly declared that Obama is a black Messiah. Around 1930, Alfred Rosenberg declared in his book, "Der Mythus des 20. Jahrhunderts," (The Myth of the 20th Century) that a great genius and a savior of the German nation would appear. Hitler promised a 1,000 year Reich (a millennial utopia). Obama promised to transform the US and change the World. He has also said publically in a church in South Carolina that he believes that "we can create a Kingdom right here on Earth" (a millennial utopia). The circumstances, in some ways, are much different, but I just think that this should have all been fully disclosed and explained to the public by the media and (especially opposition) politicians and Obama should have been questioned about it and asked to specifically repudiate the racist core beliefs of that so-called church. A couple of days ago, Obama urged a latino television audience to "punish their enemies." The "Enemy" is an expression that Black Nationalists use for the "white devil" and I have heard people use it in Obama's own church in Chicago in clips that they post. I think some latin militants will recognize this usage, but the wider public does not have enough information to put it in context, because the media and the politicians have not done their job vetting Obama and explaining his background.

Encinitas City Council Candidate Tony Kranz Accused of “Attack”

I have posted the protest sign with some explanation of it at this FaceBook page that I setup, called "Tony Kranz Exposed." http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=12935655... It's funny that more people don't notice the supreme irony of someone assaulting me in the street in order to convince me that his "great leader" should not be compared to a Nazi. It's a very facist mentality. It's not just Tony Kranz, either, but is a common attitude among Obama's supporters.

I did not have a sign with a Hitler mustache. I had images of Hitler and Obama side-by-side. The doctrine of Obama's church is Black Liberation Theology as stated by Jeremiah Wright, Jr. in a nationally televised Hanity interview that you can see on Youtube. I have had a serious hobby interest in German language and history for about 35 years. My first German teacher was a Jewish lady who fled Germany with her family when she was eight immediately after the Reichskristallnacht pogrom. She taught me a little about the psychology of the rise of Nazism, by introducing me to the play by Max Frisch about it, "Biederman und die Braendstifter." She also got me a scholarship to study German language one summer in Germany. I organize two Meetup groups for German with 500-600 members. I have studied the origins of Nazism pretty intensively myself in recent years. My German is pretty good for someone that has never lived in Germany. I travel a lot for work, have been to Europe probably 30-40 times in recent years and have taken vacation time to visit numerous Holocaust and resistance museums in Munich, Berlin, Oslo, Paris and Amsterdam, bringing back armloads of books about the origins of Nazism. I work as a research engineer. I don't claim to be the best in the world, but make my living by reading and analyzing what I read. My objection to Obama is not the color is his skin as you assume, revealing your own prejudice. At first I became concerned and a bit disturbed with the mania surrounding his campaign and the references to him being the Messiah by some of his supporters and in his campaign art. Just before the election I started reading about Black Nationalism and Black Liberation Theology and discovered that BLT is a black identity religion, in concept much like the Nazi Christian identity religion practiced in the US and also like the Nazi version of Christianity that was imposed on the Evangelical churches by the Nazis during the Third Reich, called Positives Christentum (Positive Christianity). This is what I am trying to call attention to. My sign is not just an empty insult, but I am trying to provoke people (to think, not to violence) to draw their attention to the fact that the doctrine of Obama's church is very much like Nazism in its racist concept. The media has refused to explain this to the public. Obama has never been confronted with this fact and asked to repudiate these beliefs. I have never been politically active before, but I became outraged by the failure of our media and politicians, Republicans and well as Democrats, to properly vet Obama and explain these facts to the public. Even, if my sign was just an insult and had no other real message, I would have the right to say it without being physically intimidated, but the fact is that my sign does communicate a real message and this message is accurate in what it says about Obama's racist religion in a historical and theological context.

Why would I manufacture something in April about someone I did not know and had no idea was running for public office in Encinitas in November. I have no reason to care about politics in the seaside burg of Encinitas, anyway. Do you think I just pick people out at random on the street and manufacture incidents about them on the off chance that they may later run for public office? There's a police report on this from April and Kranz was charged with malicious vandalism, because the police did not witness the assault, although Kranz lied and led the U-T to believe that they did. I imagine the charge was dropped, because there was not much cost to it, but he WAS charged with a crime and there is a record. Whether you think it is relevant or not is niether here nor there. Many people will find it relevant. Rather than exagerating, I am actually understating, because what he did is actually battery, not assault according the legal definition of the term. It does not make any sense that I would pick someone out at random to harass and especially someone that is considerably larger than I am. I have been threatened several times at protests and/or people have tried to pick fights with me, when police were present, in an apparent attempt to have me arrested. Some people just don't like what I put on my protest sign and don't think that I have a right to express it in public. That is just intolerance and a lack of respect for the constitutional rights of others. If Kranz is elected, he will have to take an oath to defend the Constitution and in that respect it is very relevant. He has no respect for the Constitutional rights of others. If this was manufactured, I suspect it was manufactured by the other side, because the shop had called the police already and told me that I would be arrested for picketing on the public sidewalk. If I had retaliated in any way and a fight had developed, I am sure that I WOULD have been arrested when the police pulled up. The police were hostile to us and threatened to arrest me for jaywalking that day. Also, even if I were the type to harass people at random, why would I start harassing people on the sidewalk, when the manager had already told me that police were on the way. Do you think that I wanted them to arrest me? I have worked at the same place for 30 years and having a police record could well get me fired from my job.

Here's an article that I found on the blog of this menace to society, claiming that the doctrine of Obama's church is genocidal, with some racist quotes that he claims comes from their own doctrinal literature. http://stopobamanowsd.wordpress.com/white-genoc... From “Black Theology and Black Power” by James H. Cone (1969) I believe that all aspiring black intellectuals share the task that LeRoi Jones has described for the black artist in America: “To aid in the destruction of America as he knows it:” (page 3) And it should be said that racism is so embedded in the heart of American society that few, if any, whites can free themselves from it. (page 23) In time of war, men want to know who the enemy is. Who is for me and who is against me? That is the question. The asserting of black freedom in America has always meant war. (page 26) …violence may be the black man’s expression, sometimes the only possible expression, of Christian love to the white oppressor. (page 55) If there is any contemporary meaning of the Antichrist (or “the principalities and powers”), the white church seems to be a manifestation of it. It is the enemy of Christ. (page 73) Just as the black revolution means the death of America as it has been, so it requires the death of the Church in its familiar patterns. (page 116) If the doctrine is against or indifferent to the essence of blackness as expressed in Black Power, then it is the work of the Antichrist:” It is as simple as that. (page 121) It is a theology which confronts white society as the racist Antichrist, communicating to the oppressor that nothing will be spared in the fight for freedom. (page 135) Whiteness, as revealed in the history of America, is the expression of what is wrong with man. It is a symbol of man’s depravity. (page 150) In a white racist society, Christian obedience can only mean being obedient to blackness, its glorification and exaltation. (page 150) It is this fact that makes all white churches anti-Christian in their essence. To be Christian is to be one of those whom God has chosen. God has chosen black people! (page 151)
