Obama Distances Himself From Racist Pastor: Too Late
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.”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.
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.
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.
