Tarred as a kook, Christine O'Donnell faces a Democrat black liberationist, like Jeremiah Wright, for senator from Delaware


Here we go again.

Chris Coons, the freshly minted Democrat selected as Tea Party favorite and Republican nominee Christine O'Donnell's opponent in the Delaware U.S. Senate race traveled to Africa in the 1980s -- emerging as a committed leftist after volunteering for an organization supporting Black Liberation Theology.

The controversial religious philosophy espoused by radical left-wing activist James Cone and President Obama's one-time spiritual mentor the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Black Liberation Theology is an off-shoot of liberation theology, a Marxist-driven interpretation of Christianity.

And the liberal media -- alarmed at O'Donnell's success and busily running all manner off stories designed to portray her as a right-wing crazy -- has suddenly gone missing on Coons. Silent on a stunning revelation that could prove uniquely fatal to Chris Coons' Senate candidacy in the year of Tea Party rebellion against the Obama Administration's agenda of wealth redistribution.

The Washington Post curiously says of Coons in their Coons profile only that he "spent time in South Africa and Kenya doing relief work." The New York Times never mentions Coons' work in Africa, choosing instead to describe him as an attorney and mentioning only his work with the homeless, the Investor Responsibility Center, and the "I Have a Dream" Foundation. Plus his educational background, a B.A. from Amherst, a law degree from Yale and a Master's in Ethics from Yale Divinity School.

Yet nary a word from the Times about the now-New Castle County Executive spending time in South Africa or Kenya.

What's striking amid all the probing of O'Donnell is what's missing from both the Washington Post and the New York Times accounts of Coons, the Delaware Senate nominee Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid describes as "my pet."

Coincidentally it is the same startling detail that is missing from Coons own website.

Instead Coons operatives supply one brief sentence on the Coons website about his time in Africa: "Chris also studied at the University of Nairobi in Kenya."

That's it.

But there is more to this story. Much more.
