More Wag the Dog: Obama’s “Spontaneous” Singing of Amazing Grace at Charleston Eulogy Not Spontaneous at All

In the weeks since the Charleston church shooting, that event has been politicized to the maximum amount possible for gun control pushes and race baiting.

One very “Wag The Dog” moment came when Obama decided to personally give the eulogy for South Carolina Senator Clementa Pinckney who was killed in the shooting.

The mainstream media tried to spin Obama’s eulogy as one of the most amazing things the president has done in his existence on this planet. Pundits left and right slobbered all over the eulogy and the idea that Obama was so moved during his delivery that he spontaneously burst into the song “Amazing Grace”.

CNN reported on the touching moment coming not just from a president but the man “as himself” stating “Obama’s words on grace especially — a core biblical concept — appeared to move him spontaneously to song. While this is very common among preachers in the black church tradition, it is less common for a President to break out in song mid-sermon.” Reporters like Steven Zeitchik of the LA Times wrote a whole article about it, “President Obama’s ‘Amazing Grace’ moment and the power of spontaneous song”.

Here’s a Tweet from BuzzFeed’s World News Editor/Reporter:

Here’s another from GQ Washington correspondent Ana Marie Cox re: the president’s eulogy song.

But, as it turns out, that amazing, spontaneous moment was not so spontaneous after all.

Speaking at the Aspen Institute, Valerie Jarrett discussed how it had all been planned well beforehand, and apparently Michelle Obama was less-than-enthused at her husband’s plans to dramatically break into song at the funeral.

Via the Daily Caller:

The senior advisor recalled that during the helicopter ride to Pinckney’s service, which was held at the College of Charleston, Obama informed her and Michelle that he was considering singing the song.

“Hmm,” Jarrett said she replied.

The first lady’s response was more critical.

“Why on earth would that fit in?” she asked, according to Jarrett.

“I don’t know whether I’m going to do it, but I just wanted to warn you two that I might sing,” Obama said.

“I think if I sing, the church will sing with me,” he continued, adding, “we’ll see how it feels at the time.”

Apparently it felt just fine. Saying the words “amazing grace” twice before he broke into song though seemed to suggest to viewers it was a spontaneous decision on the part of Obama and not a completely set up move to milk this situation for all it would be worth in the media spotlight.

The media, by the way, seemed to forget the whole thing was even a funeral or the man who died and was the reason for the entire event in the first place. All media attention and focus (and drool) went to Obama.

Jarrett says she asked the president whether or not he ever reconsidered his plan to sing the song throughout his delivery.

“Oh no, I knew I was going to sing, I was just trying to figure out which key to sing in,” Obama said, according to Jarrett.

Real spontaneous, huh?

Some people called the president and mainstream media on this moment for what it truly was.

  2. What you see isn’t what you get. Everything about the public Obongo is phony. None of us knows what the real one is like, but I suspect it’s not good.

Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.

The control of information is something the elite always does, particularly in a despotic form of government. Information, knowledge, is power. If you can control information, you can control people.

If the freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.

You learn that you either are going to have a police state where you don't have any freedom left, or you're going to build a world that doesn't create terrorists, and that means a whole different way of getting along.
