Obama Explains About Rev. Wright — Badly

Friday, March 14, 2008

On Hannity & Colmes tonight, on Fox News, Major Garrett asked Barack Obama about his relationship with the controversial Afrocentric Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

Obama plane smallObama did the two step and danced around a lot, saying that he was busy voting in the Senate yesterday and unaware that this controversy was swirling around him. He stated that he only became aware of Wright’s hate filled speeches when he began to see the videos on Fox and other outlets.

What – after being a member of Wright’s church for twenty years he just learned what his preacher has been saying?

Rich Lowry of The Corner has quotes from Obama’s first book “Dreams From My Father”, in which Barack quotes Wright’s hate-speech – that he apparently never heard before. Read it here.

Now that Obama has been smoked out on the racist hate filled speeches of Rev. Wright — Obama has deemed it time to distance himself from “his spiritual adviser” and made this statement:

“Let me say at the outset that I vehemently disagree and strongly condemn the statements that have been the subject of this controversy,” “I categorically denounce any statement that disparages our great country or serves to divide us from our allies. I also believe that words that degrade individuals have no place in our public dialogue, whether it’s on the campaign stump or in the pulpit. In sum, I reject outright the statements by Rev. Wright that are at issue.”

Barack Obama may be holier then thou to the masses of Democrats who adore him — but to me he’s a typical politician, skilled in the art of plausible deniability.

If Obama truly just heard the bile spewing forth from Rev. Wright in the last 24 hours — then why did he cancel Wright’s appearance with him on the day he announced he was running for President, February 10th 2007!

Here’s what the Boston Globe wrote:

“In February 2007, Obama disinvited Wright from giving the invocation at his campaign kickoff in Springfield, Ill., apparently fearing controversy from Wright’s Afrocentric teachings.”

If Barack Obama suddenly calls his Pastor’s words “inflammatory and appalling.” — why did it take a debate question in February of ’08 for Obama to reject the endorsement of Louis Farrakhan. The same Farrakhan that Obama’s Reverend, mentor and adviser gave the Trumpeter Award to — Wright said Farrakhan “truly epitomized greatness.”

The answer is that Barack Obama is lying his way out of a big problem. The problem of whether Obama is fit to hold the highest office of this land.

I say not.

    If you are rooting for Hillary Clinton why are you attacking Obama so vehemently? Why not focus on promoting your candidate? You spend so much time tearing down another. No wonder division continues to exist in American society so deeply. Can you people please focus on what you have in common instead of what divides you? The Bible says to focus on what leads to mutual edification.

    Judge not, lest ye be judged. Are you perfect? Have you never sinned? Barack Obama has already denounced those words. It is un-christian to expect him to denounce the man. Paul taught us to hate the sin but love the sinner. It is your kind of Christianity and religiosity that Jesus came to deliver us from. Think about it. Jesus was controversial! Jesus unsettled the people of his day with his words. He came to set hearts on fire. His message drove the authorities and the religious leaders crazy. You also need to appreciate that certain black people actually saw slavery with their eyes and they are justified in their anger. Remember Barack never saw slavery. He is the son of a Kenyan black man and a white Kansas woman. Do not lump him in with Jeremiah Wright.

    Heh you got the moonbats on that post :)

    Mmasingira ignores the fact of 20 years of non-denouncing before the controversy made the politician Obama denounce his spiritual father and then compares Jesus to Obama.

    Quit drinking the f#cking kool-aid moonbats.

    I’m sorry. I did not compare Jesus to Obama. Here is what I said, “Jesus was controversial! Jesus unsettled the people of his day with his words. He came to set hearts on fire. His message drove the authorities and the religious leaders crazy.” In any case, if you were to dig out a comparison there it would be Jesus/Jeremiah Wright. Of course you cannot compare them. Jesus IS the Savior of the world!

    I grew up on the Lynwood-Compton border and although I’m Catholic I have attended many ‘Conservative Black Church’s’ in that area as well as Inglewood at the Fredrick K. Price Church.
    I always came away from these Church’s filled with a real Good Feeling and Fulfilled Spiritually, and never ever heard sermons and preaching like that of Obama’s Pastor.
    Reverand Jeremiah Wright Jr., and his screaming jumping congregation seems more like a Satanic/Demonically Posessed group that is in need of mass Excorcism.
    Solid Pure Hate. I did not even know preaching like this existed!
    It would seem that if Obama is Elected, every Church in America will be required to, ‘Invert the Crucifix’ on their Church’s.
    The Bible says, “Satan is a Lier’. Well, according to KABC Los Angeles talk show host and author of, “Stupid Black Men”, Larry Elder, OBAMA IS LYING.
    20 years of this Reverand Wright and absolutely No Knowledge of any of these sermons.
    Satan is a Lier and Obama is Too!

    The Latest Lockstep-Twostep by the mainstream media is, “White people just don’t understand how the Black Church experience operates.” WHAT? All of a sudden, I can’t even tell when I am hated…not for who I am individually…but hated because I am white and unleashed the AIDS virus on people of color? Rev. Wright, with his mail-in Master’s degrees is one dangerous liaison for Obama. It is Orwellian nonsense to say that I need an interpreter to understand Black Racist speech. Again, the mainstream media is trying to make me feel guilty because when I hear the anti-American rhetoric of Wright, I just don’t understand the “black faith experience.” HOGWASH. When you go to the trinity church, the gates of heaven open up and there is the continent of Africa…and if Wright has stepped down, no one has told his webmaster yet because there he is. Obama is inextricably tied to this man…he is the soul of Obama’s campaign. There is no apology necessary from Obama, there is no spinning of the hate speech, no bamboozling of me and others like me. There is a pathetic undertone here and that is basically that black speech needs to be parsed; that white America doesn’t get it. HOW INFANTILIZING IS THAT? I feel that black people are grown-ups who are responsible for what comes out of their mouths….just like I am responsible for what comes out of mine. The height of hypocasy is for Obama to parrot “beyond race” fancy speeches for the stump…and sit in the pew rocking to the divisive bigotry of his 20 plus year pastor and self-described “uncle.” WAKE UP AMERICA.

    Everyone is on Obama’s back………Well lets get some facts straight…How many of you all have sat and done something wrong or heard a preacher say something that you didn’t particularly understand. Yes I do believe that the Reverend was definitely wrong for saying what he said. Whether that is your opinion or not, when saying comments like that it is too controversal. However, people have avoided the fact that Hillary has lied on a number of occasions. Saying that she was dodging bullets in Bosnia and when the reporters that she was on the bus with said she was lying she took it back. The real question is why are you voting for Hillary. Would anyone know Hillary if there was no Bill!!! Do we hold the unstable marriage against Hillary, No!! And if you do, you are wrong as well. So I ask, why do you hold the preachings and beliefs of another man on Obama. This election has really turned me off. All the lashing out, trying to mimic the other canidate, talking bad about them is so juvenile. We need to take a look at Not Black or White, not Man or Woman, but who is the best canidate. Who brings more to the table and in my opinion by far Obama. Do your research….Everything that he set out to do while he was Senator he did…..Hillary promised thousands of New Jobs and lost thousands of jobs, she stands behind her husband name. Now I do believe that Hillary has very good qualities and never really had any issues with her until this election. She has tried to come at Obama with every angle and its just sickening and disturbing to me. Why, because I do not want a president who is so juvenile and petty……..And for the comment about the African American Churches…..Catholics and Baptist are two denominations but serving the same God….Catholic Churches are very suttle and low key, while most Baptist Churches have all types of instruments, shouting, praise dancing, etc..So please by no means do not compare the church to Satism, cause its not on the same level by FAR!!!! If you ever decide to go to a church of a different denomination I know that you will enjoy yourself, might not be your cup of tea every Sunday but you will enjoy yourself. Anyway, lets stop looking at the persons flaws, look at credentials, who can do and who has done a better job as a leader and make your decision based on that.
