Obama Distances Himself From Racist Pastor: Too Late

Although the mainstream media has tried to suppress the story, the conservative blogosphere, Fox News and talk radio have been abuzz with the the fiery racist rhetoric of Barack Obama’s pastor, one Jeremiah Wright of the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago.

We have posted two video clips, one here and the other here.

What kind of statements has Wright made?
In a fiery sermon recorded and available on DVD, Wright can be seen and heard saying three times: “God damn America.”

In his recorded sermons, he also questions America’s role in the spread of the AIDS virus and suggests that the United States bore some responsibility for the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.

“We bombed Hiroshima. We bombed Nagasaki. And we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon and we never batted an eye,” Wright said.

“We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant because of stuff we have done overseas is now brought back into our own backyard. America is chickens coming home to roost.”

The pastor also said: “The government lied about inventing the HIV virus as a means of genocide against people of color. The government lied.”

Wright’s supporters say his sermons accurately portray black America, and they contend his sermons are widely studied by theologians.
Wright most certainly does not “portray black America.” He does represent a whole class of politically correct black race hustlers. The same sort of people who are constantly aggrieved.

Obama has finally distanced himself from those comments.

The problem, of course, is that it’s too late.

He had no problem with the church until he got into a presidential race and people started asking him questions. As long as nobody much was paying attention, he was fine with Wright.

Which is terribly revealing. Obama may not hate whites and hate America the way Wright does, but he somehow doesn’t terribly mind that kind of bigotry.

But, and this is even worse, white liberals and leftists don’t terribly mind it either.


We just saw a video clip in which Wright said that the U.S. government knew about Pearl Harbor before it happened. If we can find that clip online, we’ll post it.

This isn't fair.
How is Obama supposed to know that his MENTOR and the man who MARRIED him and BAPTISED his children, and was the INSPIRATION for Obama's book, was a HARD CORE RACIST?
Let's be fair, Obama only atteneded Rev.Wright's Trinity Church for the last TWENTY YEARS.
Maybe Wright HID his overt RACISM from Obama for TWENTY YEARS.
BUT?? Obama HAS BEEN aware for the last year at least, of the SPECIFICS of WRIGHTS HATEFUL RACE SCREEDS. And Obama did what???

Obama voted....."PRESENT".

"Obama may not hate whites and hate America the way Wright does, but he somehow doesn’t terribly mind that kind of bigotry."

McCain may not hate Catholics, Jews, Gays and Muslims the way "Revs. Rod Parsley and John Hagee do, but he somehow doesn't terribly mind that kind of bigotry."

"But, and this is even worse, white liberals and leftists don’t terribly mind it either."

But, and this is even worse, white Conservatives and rightists don't terribly mind it either.

I'm sure as a someone who is consistent you will be posting this YouTube video of Rev. Hagee in the near future:
(You'll need to connect the lines and then paste.)

Obama has condemned the offensive remarks and says he "deeply disagrees" with Wright's more radical views. McCain says that Hagee's claims about Catholicism (such as that it is "the Great whore") were merely taken out of context; and he referred to Rev. Parsley, who says that Christians need to rise up and destroy Islam, as a "spiritual guide."

You might at least pretend to be consistent in your outrage about bigotry.

Anonymous is correct when he/she says that McCain may not "terribly mind" the anti gay and anti roman Catholic bigotry displayed in remarks of the ministers supporting McCain.

The problem with Rev Wright's remarks about 9/11 and "God Damn America" is that it's been preached in a Church, and worse the "sermon" is predicated on the idea that the US Government brought 9/11 on itself because of pro-Jewish foreign policy. According to Wright, America got its due with 9/11. We got what we deserved because of all these things he's rolling into one big anti White not (Hiroshima, the Palestine issue, Oil, etc)

These remarks are disturbingly anti-American. And do we want someone in the White House whose spiritual advisor hates America and blames white people for his anger and his own lack of self actualization? Apparently lots of Americans do want this kind of president in the White House. Talk about chickens coming home to roost -- to quote Rev Wright quoting Malcom X.

John McCain isn't claiming to be the "great uniter", he didn't title one of his books from a sermon of Parsley or Hagee, did he?

Obama claims to be "compassionate" and "tolerant". This proves he isn't.

Never was.

If Obama would have disagreed with those remarks, he wouldn't have gotten married in that church. He wouldn't have had Wright baptize his daughters. He would have left a long time ago.

He didn't.

I guess it stinks for Obama supporters to see their messiah is a flawed, bigoted man.
